Trump Attacks Biden; NRA Calls Trump: A Closer Look

-The President is already back
to lashing out at his critics
and taking his cues
from the NRA.
For more on this,
it’s time for “A Closer Look.”
[ Cheers and applause ]
We are now once again
going through the absurd
post tragedy ritual
of watching the media speculate
over whether Donald Trump
is capable of changing his tone.
The media seems desperate
to believe that Trump
has a bunch of different tones
and moves and strategies,
but he doesn’t.
He’s not a Swiss Army knife.
He’s just a sharp stick.
Yesterday, he insisted to
reporters that he had already
changed his tone and he began
by stating the obvious.
-What do you say to your critics
that believe that your rhetoric
is emboldening
white nationalists
and inciting them with anger?
-So, my critics are political
They are trying to make points.
-Yes. I agree.
They are trying to make points.
That’s not a defense.
That’s just a literal
description of what’s happening.
[ As Trump ]
So my critics are human beings
who are forming sentences
with their mouths,
and out of those mouths
are coming words
that are in English.
[ Normal voice ]
Sounds like an alien
trying to explain
the rules of basketball.
“They are tall beings who use
the orange orb to make points.”
Trump can’t go a day —
he can’t even go a few hours
without fighting with someone
because that’s
his favorite thing to do.
It might be the only thing
he likes doing.
If he weren’t President,
he’d be a guy around the city
waiting for someone to
accidentally bump into him.
That’s why he always
walks around
with his chest puffed out
like that.
[ As Trump ] Hey [bleep]
Did you bump into me?
You want to go?
Let’s go right now.
[ Laughter ]
[ Normal voice ] For example,
just hours after he lied
and said he changed his tone,
Trump found time to respond
to a speech by Joe Biden.
-“Watching Sleepy Joe Biden
making a speech, so boring.
The lame stream media
will die in the ratings
and clicks with this guy.
It will be over for them,
not to mention the fact
that our country will do poorly
with him.
It will be one big crash, but
at least China will be happy.”
-Think about how much
of a narcissist you have to be
to tweet about
how much better you are
for TV ratings on a day
when you are supposed to be
consoling victims of a tragedy.
It’s like if you crashed
a car while drunk driving
and your first thought was,
“Oh, my God,
I’m going to be on ‘Cops’!”
[ Laughter ]
Yesterday, Biden was asked
if he wanted to respond
to any of Trump’s attacks
on him.
And he had a very curt response.
-Do you want to respond to
the president responding to you?
-He should get a life.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-That’s the problem.
That is the problem right there.
Fighting with people online
is his life.
That’s all he wants to do.
If he were President in 1996
instead of 2019,
Biden would have gotten
an AOL instant message
from someone named “TheDonald69”
that said,
“You suck, loser. Sad.
See you at school tomorrow.”
In fact,
Trump seemed to spend all day
lashing out at people
even if they didn’t actually
criticize him.
For example, he picked
a totally bizarre fight
with the mayor of Dayton,
Nan Whaley,
and Ohio senator Sherrod Brown.
According to CNN,
after Trump’s trip,
Brown said Trump was received
well by the patients,
was comforting,
and did the right things.
Whaley said victims
were grateful to see Trump
and that he was treated well
by the victims, for sure.
Neither of the two Democrats
alleged that Trump was badly
received at the hospital.
Now, you might think,
“How could he possibly
find a way to get mad
about that?”
Well, if you’re thinking that,
You don’t have Donald Trump’s
brain disease.
Because despite saying
only nice things
about his reception
at the hospital,
Brown and Whaley
were both subjected
to nasty tweets from Trump.
-The president weighed in,
saying, “Just left Dayton, Ohio,
where I met with the victims
and families,
law enforcement, medical staff,
and first responders.
It was a warm
and wonderful visit.
Tremendous enthusiasm
and even love.
Then I saw
failed presidential candidate,
“Zero Percent” Sherrod Brown
and Mayor Whaley
totally misrepresenting
what took place
inside of the hospital.
-Their news conference after
I left El Paso was a fraud.
It bore no resemblance
to what took place
with those incredible people
that I was so lucky
to meet and spend time with.
They were all amazing.
-First of all,
in case you missed it,
he accidentally wrote
Which I guess is a knock-off
version of SpaghettiOs.
“Dad, we want SpaghettiOs
for dinner!”
[ As Trump ]
Here, have some Amazing-Os.
They’re just as good.
I bought them at ShopWrong.
[ Laughter ]
[ Normal voice ] Second,
and I’m asking this sincerely,
what the [bleep]
are you talking about?
How did you manage to take
what they said about you
and get mad about it?
What chemical are you missing
from your brain
that makes you like this?
Is it the same chemical
responsible for telling you
which direction to walk in
so you don’t amble around
in circles
on the White House lawn
like an old man who wandered
away from the group home?
I mean, look at him,
just shuffling around
like he’s looking for
a golf ball.
[ As Trump ]
You guys seen a Titleist
with a dollar sign on it?
[ Normal voice ] Gonna have to
put a sign around his neck
that says, “If found, return
to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
[ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ]
after Trump’s
unhinged tweet barrage,
we got to watch the mayor of
Dayton find out in real time
that Trump
had tweeted about her,
read the tweet,
and try to figure out
what the hell
he was talking about.
-“Just left Dayton, Ohio.
You got two tweets.Doble.
-“Totally misrepresenting.”
[ Mumbling ]
-What does the tweet say?
-I don’t — I mean, like,
I’m really confused.
We said he was treated, like,
very well, so…
-I’d love to hear what his —
-I don’t know what he’s
talking about misrepresenting.
Oh, well. You know.
He lives in his world
of Twitter.
-You know, it’s such a relief
to see a politician
have a normal, human reaction
to Trump’s tweets.
You usually either get
Republicans making excuses
or Democrats justifiably angrily
denouncing him.
But it’s rare to see someone
in real time just be like,
I — I — What?
Well, I mean, I guess somebody
put something
in his Amazing-Os.”
[ Laughter ]
But in that press conference,
Whaley and Brown did offer
some justified criticisms
of Trump
that had nothing to do with
the hospital visits.
Brown, for example,
said Trump would never
act on gun violence because
he and Senate Majority Leader
Mitch McConnell are, of course,
beholden to the NRA.
-Republicans for years now
have dug in
and done the bidding of the NRA.
The National Rifle Association,
the gun lobby
gives millions of dollars
to Republican candidates
and spends millions and millions
against Democrats like me
that get an “F” from the NRA,
that stood up to the NRA.
We can’t get anything done
in the Senate
because Mitch McConnell
and the President
of the United States
are in bed with the gun lobby.
-That’s true,
but the only quibble I have
is with the metaphor.
I don’t think Trump
ever goes to bed.
I think he spends all night
wandering around
the White House lawn
looking for reporters
to yell at.
[ As Trump ]
Where are you, Jake Tapper?!
Come out!
[ Laughter ]
But it’s true, of course.
Trump takes his marching orders
on gun policy from the NRA.
In fact yesterday
during a Q&A with reporters
on the White House lawn
amid a national crisis
over gun violence
and white supremacy,
Trump said that
there was no political will
for a ban on assault weapons
and offered some vague,
half-hearted comments about
background checks
where even he seemed unclear on
what exactly he was proposing.
-I have had plenty of talks
over the last two days,
and I think something
is going to be come up with —
We are going to come up
with something
that’s going to be
really very good,
beyond anything
that’s been done so far.
I think we can bring up
background checks
like we have never had before.
I think both Republican
and Democrats
are getting close to
a bill on —
to doing something
on background checks.
-They’re doing something
on background checks.
This is a national emergency,
and he talks about it
with all the specificity
of a dad who has no idea
where his kids are.
“I don’t know, I think they’re
upstairs doing something
on the computer.
I also think I heard a bobcat.”
But Trump reportedly got a call
from NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre
warning him to back off.
-What we are told
by the reporting
of “The Washington Post”
is that there was
a Tuesday phone call from
Wayne LaPierre
with the president
and the message
from the
National Rifle Association
would be that
the Trump supporters
in that powerful organization
would not support the president
if he were to move forward
with background checks.
The message from the NRA
to the president was,
“Careful about doing that.”
That goes against what
the president
has been saying publicly.
-Of course it does.
Because you can’t trust anything
this President says publicly.
First of all, he barely said
anything to begin with.
I mean, listen
to how vague he was.
-I think something is going to
be come up with —
We’re going to come up
with something
that’s going to be
really very good,
beyond anything
that’s been done so far.
-He is a master of using
a bunch of words
to say absolutely nothing.
He always sounds like
the guy in a movie
whose job it is to distract
the security guard
while his partner steals
a painting from the Louvre.
[ As Trump ] They are going to
come up with something,
something that’s
gonna be so good, very good,
beyond anything — That’s right.
Roll it up.
[ Normal voice ] Trump
and the NRA are closely linked
for many reasons,
one of which is something
they both have in common —
They are grifters
and scam artists.
Take for example Trump’s visit
to El Paso yesterday.
This isn’t the first time
he’s been there.
In fact, he held a rally there
in February.
And his campaign racked up more
than half a million dollars
in expenses owed
to the city of El Paso,
expenses they still
haven’t paid.
-Donald Trump
is going to El Paso,
while he still owes the city
of El Paso
over half a million dollars
from his last visit to El Paso.
The president has
an outstanding bill
of $569,204.63
for police
and public safety services
associated with a February
campaign rally in El Paso.
-Man, going back to El Paso
when you owe the city half a
million dollars is a bold move.
They’re going to have to put
the boot on Air Force One.
[ Laughter ]
In fact, the bill…
[ As Trump ]
Let’s get out of here.
Oh, no!
[ Laughter ]
[ Normal voice ] In fact, the
bill has actually gotten bigger
the longer it goes unpaid.
Trump owed an initial fee
of about $470,000,
but the city tacked on
a 21% one-time late fee in June.
And of course Donald Trump
has incurred a late fee.
That’s so him!
I’m surprised his oval office
desk isn’t covered
in unreturned Blockbuster DVDs.
[ As Trump ]
You guys seen “Tango & Cash”?
It’s really good.
Lot of chemistry
between the two leads.
[ Laughter ]
I’m a Tango guy.
[ Laughter ]
Teri — [ Laughs ]
[ Laughter ]
Got a young Teri Hatcher in it.
[ Laughter ]
[ Laughter, cheers,
and applause ]
By the way — by the way —
[ Cheers and applause ]
By the way, at the same time
Trump is ignoring a half-million
dollar debt to El Paso,
he also scheduled a headline
fundraiser in the Hamptons
where tickets run as high
as $250,000.
But this is something Trump
has in common with the NRA.
They’re also huge grifters,
as we learned from
a recent string
of financial scandals that
have nearly crippled the NRA.
In fact, just yesterday, “The
Washington Post” reported
that LaPierre sought to have
the nonprofit organization
buy him a luxury mansion,
a French-country-style estate
in a gated Dallas-area
golf club,
a 10,000-square-foot estate
with lakefront
and golf course views
on the market
for about $6 million.
A $6 million mansion in Texas.
Meanwhile, in New York,
$6 million will get you
a two-bedroom condo, and your
landlord is an actual rat.
[ Laughter and applause ]
This explains so much, so much
about politics right now.
Donald Trump and his fellow
grifters on the right
sell their base racism
and paranoia, and all the while,
they and their wealthy patrons
are cashing in.
We have seen corruption and
racism from presidents before.
But what Trump is doing now
-Beyond anything
that’s been done so far.
-This has been “A Closer Look.”
[ Cheers and applause ]

100 thoughts to “Trump Attacks Biden; NRA Calls Trump: A Closer Look”

  1. Swedish government officials were baffled to hear about the terrorist attack trump said at a rally; headlines in Swedish papers were printing wtf is trump talking about, basically. No profanity. Then Finland had to say that they had talked about forest management with trump, but raking the forest wasn't anything spoken about, nor do they rake the forest. A woman tweeted a picture of herself using a shop vacuum captioned: Just a typical day in Finland raking the forest. It was a very humorous tweet. Many of the things trump says would be humorous, if he was in the private sector. Let them be like Sarah Winchester, who felt the ghosts of everyone killed by Winchester firearms were going to get her. Hammers had to be pounding 24 hours a day. She built the Winchester mystery house, construction went on 24/7 to keep the unhappy spirits of the dead away. Staircases leading to nowhere, doors without a room. I've driven past the billboards many times, but I never got off the freeway and have only read about it and her. Trick architecture to keep the unhappy spirits at bay. I think her grandfather started Winchester firearms. She had the money to build around the clock. These people have no conscience, I guess Sarah's had too much guilt. People are winning lawsuits. Victims should sue the gun manufacturer and NRA as both an entity and each member personally. So many reprehensible acts from this administration, I miss Bush. Whoa. In fact I think I'm gonna see if they have a video about the Winchester mystery house. Spooky looking thing. What's waiting for some of these greedy people spookier. Maybe they will spend eternity with the victims, that's what Sarah was afraid of.

  2. Only president in my life that I'm not interested in hearing. I usually turn the channel. I remember the day when a presidential statement had my undivided attention. This president lies so much that if there were a nuclear missile heading this way – I wouldn't believe him.

  3. I pray to the people of the U.S. please, do not let him get another 4 years. We need a leader, a decent human being on the most important job of a nation. Is it too much to ask both parties for that?

  4. I’ve got a solution to the problem of getting paid for his rallies. Charge 50 bucks an hour or more for event parking.

  5. Why does NRA oppose background check? Do they want criminals to buy guns too?
    And why GOP caves to NRA's demands? National-wide, there are 95+ million gun owners, NRA has 5 million members, and that number is dwindling. Republicunts are a bunch of cowards.

  6. He visited the wrong victim's, they were actually 3rd degree fire ward

    And the word your looking to describe Trump is deadbeat, criminal, and sometimes a rapist!!!!

    See what i did

  7. If you haven't been in a coma for the last 2 1/2 years you'll recognize that for almost all situations he's going to "come up with something, really great, much better than anything that has been done before" etc. etc. etc. No specifics, no plans, no schedules. Think about it, he says this every time. He got a tax plan that my own Republican senator says has benefited only the wealthy and cost the middle class. He signs lots of executive orders and takes lots of golf vacations, something he vehemently criticized his predecessor for doing. I don't vote along party lines, but I really thought the Republicans couldn't find anyone worse than Dubya. Boy was I wrong!

  8. How does one deluded retard make 330,000,000 look more stupid than himself. It took trump two and a half years to do what Russia couldn't do in fifty. Are their any normal people who are scared of this president

  9. I’ve never, in 53 years on this earth, experienced what it’s like to hate someone until this thing that calls himself a leader. I don’t like myself much for it either.

  10. I'm f'cking serious, has any modern day President ever fielded so many f'cking questions with a loud a$$ helicopter in the background! Hey dickhead of a so-called President show some balls and actually step up to the podium in the press room you cowardly ignorant POS!

  11. America is being sold to the highest bidder NRA not the people Republicans sale out the people for money, but some people can't see that because they are stupid and racist dumbass

  12. It's not a chemical he's missing from his brain, it's the release of hormones his brain produces when he attacks, knowing he is safe within his bubble. He is an overprivileged protected adrenaline addict at best, and this has allowed him to evolve into President Trollmp.

  13. I swear they had those tweets pre-written, expecting that those Democrats would be negative about Trump's visit. And then without checking just pushed them live, not realising they'd said nice things. This administration is such an incompetent fucking joke it's not even funny anymore, but I said the same at least over a year ago, or is it two, or five-hundred?


  15. I want to see a active shooter inside the White House and shoot Trump’s dick head. Maybe after that law makers will act right.

  16. Trump has a nice looking wife, so what the hell is he doing up at night tweeting instead of taking care of other business? Well I guess he sucks at that too!

  17. Social media back ground checks for every person who has a social media account. Guns or no guns. We are going to round up crazy people before they ever think of buying a gun.

  18. I want someone to ask Drumpf why he wears a Girdle. A 300 pounder with no belly rolls? Impossible. His suits are getting Yuge, and his ass is growing Up toward his beltline. I know lots of friends who carry more weight than they want, but they have class and good taste. Are kind, and aren't racist, pedophile, grifter misogynists.

  19. El Paso should have repossessed Air force one. I am sure they could sell it to the Russians for the $500,000 they are owed. 🙂

  20. Murder anyone on 5th avenue….the trump body count has grown from Dayton, El Paso, to inClude a Federal Prison Jeffrey Epstein….U.S. Servicemen..Trump cares of one person. Himself

  21. He needs to pay his debt to El Paso out of Republican Party campaign funds. That is basic courtesy. Bailing is a conscious act informed by party 'make them pay for it" attitude. he has tremendous nerve to return to the city.

  22. Well done! We need to keep Kilgrave-Trump somewhere where he cannot hurt humans/animals/the planet. Ressurrect Alcatraz. There are many domestic terrorist 'Kilgraves' out free hypnotyzing and shifting through laws. We can catch them if we write with a feather quill new laws against them. Yes we can.

  23. He for a second thought he was getting on that helicopter. Then he realized and tried to make it look like he meant to walk on the grass. He needs someone standing by him at all times to point him in the right direction.

  24. This has happened before. Trump suggests he might possibly do something. Then the NRA yanks his choke chain, and nothing gets done.


  26. Trump’s brain has an excess of the neurotransmitter dopamine which signals the perceived motivational prominence (i.e., the desirability or aversiveness) of an outcome, which in turn propels the organism's behavior toward or away from achieving that outcome.

  27. If Trump is so independent and can't be bought, he should tell the NRA to take a hike. If he caves in to the NRA, then he is no different than any other political hack who accepts bribes.

  28. WHY is Trump "threatened" by the NRA at all? They say, "If you pass any gun or ammunition restrictions – well, We…we…won't VOTE for you! " so, WHO does he think they'll vote FOR? the Democrats??

  29. We have a tub of lard as President, like we never had before. A bigly rat a brain! A stable rat a brain, a genius with stupid you have never heard before!

  30. Biden literally just said "Poor kids are just as talented and bright as white kids" on camera. This is not who we want going up against Trump.

  31. The U.S. is nothing else but violence …. War …. Deceit …. Corruption …. I Lament …. Fucked up people in a fucked up country …. Enough said !!

  32. It's true. The Lord God Trumpanzee is caught in a gay threesome with the NRA and Mitch McCAnal.

  33. Trump literally over turned obamas law to keep guns out of mentally disabled ppls hands. So much blood on his hands and now he wants to take credit like we dont know he over turned it. Trump is satan.

  34. Helicopter Trump is completely ridiculous. His advisors must have decided having him talk partially obscured by the helicopter provides deniability if he says something more stupid than is normal for him.

    Incidentally, look he has high heels on his shoes 😀😀😀 and pleats in his shoulders to make him look as if he has broader shoulders. 😀😀😀😀

  35. "I'm a Tango guy" (at 10:50).

    I knew I'd seen The Donald somewhere before. Here without wig:
