>>Laura: AS TRUMP WAS RELAUNCHING HIS REELECTION CAMPAIGN IN FLORIDA, OUR OWN RAYMOND ARROYO TALKS TO PROTESTERS AT AN ANTI-TRUMP EVENT TWO BLOCKS AWAY. THEY REVEALED A NEW LINE OF THINKING ON THE LEFT, A DEEPLY NEGATIVE VIEW OF THEIR HOME COUNTRY.>>YOUR PLACARDS AS AMERICA WAS NEVER GREAT, WHY DO YOU SAY THAT?>>BECAUSE WE SLAUGHTERED AN ENTIRE PEOPLE TO GET OUR LAND?>>WE ARE ALL FREE, WE CAN COME OUT HERE AND SAY OUR PEACE.>>I THINK YOU’RE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BRIDGE.>>Laura: THAT LANGUAGE MIGHT BE EXPECTED FROM AN ACTIVIST, MORE PROMINENT VOICES ARE NOW CONTRIBUTING TO THE WARPED MIND-SET.>>LET’S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, WHEN YOU THINK AMERICA WAS GREAT?>>WE AREN’T GOING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, IT WAS NEVER THAT GREAT.>>THINGS ARE SAVAGELY WRONG IN THIS COUNTRY, WHAT WE ARE SEEING DOESN’T REFLECT OUR SPIRIT. IT DOESN’T REFLECT OUR POTENTIA POTENTIAL.>>Laura: IT’S ONE OF THE GREATEST TIMES EVER TO BE AN AMERICAN, JOINING ME NOW WITH REACTION FORMER SPEAKER OF FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR NEWT GINGRICH. ARE WE ON THE SIDE OF PROPORTION OR MANY OF THE MOST PROMINENT VOCAL VOICES AND THE ACTIVISTS ON THE GROUND REALLY JUST A VERY ABOUT DEFAMING THE FOUNDATIONS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF OUR HOME COUNTRY? THE HATRED IS PALPABLE.>>I THINK IT’S AMAZING THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS THIS KNACK FOR FRAMING THINGS IN SUCH A WAY THAT HIS OPPONENTS GO CRAZY. YOU NOW HAVE FOR EXAMPLE THE PRESIDENT SAYS KEEP AMERICA GREAT WHICH I THINK IS A GREAT CAMPAIGN SLOGAN FOR NEXT YEAR. THE DEMOCRATS SAY NO, KEEP AMERICA WEAK. THE PRESIDENT SAYS I’M PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN, THE LEFT SAYS I’M ASHAMED TO BE AN AMERICAN. THE NUMBER OF LIES BEING TOLD RIGHT NOW ABOUT THE UNITED STATES ARE ASTONISHING BUT ALL TRUMP IS DOING IS HE’S DRAWING TO THE SURFACE THE DEEP HATRED WHICH ON-CAMPUS IS CERTAINLY BEGAN BY THE MIDDLE OF THE 1960s AND HAS GROWN AND GROWN LIKE A CANCER. YOU’RE NOW SEEING WITH LEADING NATIONAL DEMOCRATS AND THEY HAVE A REAL PROBLEM. IF YOU ARE A DEMOCRAT TODAY AND GO TO A NORMAL DEMOCRATIC MEETING AND START TALKING ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL AMERICA IS, HOW GREAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE, HOW REMARKABLE THE CONSTITUTION IS, HE WOULD BE BOOED OFF THE STAGE. THE DEMOCRATS ARE A PARTY WHICH IS GENUINELY ANTI-AMERICAN, THAT’S PRETTY REMARKABLE.>>Laura: WE’VE MOVED FROM WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE IN THE 1980s, IT WAS RONNIE RAYGUN. A MUSHROOM CLOUD OVER THE SOVIET UNION, IT WAS RIDICULING HIM, WE ALL FORGET HIM NOW IN THE GLOW OF REAGAN BIOGRAPHERS BUT THEY WERE TRASHING HIM. THEY WERE SAYING AMERICA AT HER CORE IS ILLEGITIMATE BECAUSE THE FOUNDING WAS ILLEGITIMATE, THE FOUNDERS WERE RACIST — BUT THIS HAS GROWN WITH SOCIAL MEDIA AND GROWN WITH THE PRESIDENT’S NOMADIC PREVALENCE OF 24-HOUR MEDIA, HOLLYWOOD IS EMBOLDENED. YOU’RE RIGHT, TRUMP HAS A WAY OF DRAWING OUT WATER ANTI-AMERICAN MADNESS AND REGULAR PEOPLE ARE GOING I LOVE MY COUNTRY. MY GOD, I WOULDN’T WANT TO LIVE ANYWHERE ELSE.>>1984, JEANNE KIRKPATRICK CAPTURED THIS, SHE HAD BEEN HUBERT HUMPHREY’S ADVISOR. SHE WAS ORIGINALLY A MODERATE DEMOCRAT AND SHE GRADUALLY HAD BEEN DRIVEN OUT OF THE PARTY BY THE LEFT WING. SHE HAD THIS AMAZING SPEECH WHICH IS WORTH OUR AUDIENCE GOOGLING AND PULLING UP, SHE TALKED ABOUT THE LAME AMERICA FIRST DEMOCRATS, THEY ARE ALWAYS BLAMING AMERICA FIRST. IF YOU WATCHED THE LAST THREE OR FOUR DAYS TALKING ABOUT CONCENTRATION CAMPS WHICH IS A TOTAL, ABSOLUTE LIE. IT IS SMEARING AMERICA, IT IS INSULTING TO EVERYBODY WHO IS GENUINELY WORRIED ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST AND THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN WHICH 6 MILLION WERE KILLED AND MILLIONS OF OTHER PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND YET ON THE LEFT TODAY AS WE WATCH RECENTLY WITH VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, BIDEN TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT FRIENDSHIPS THAT WERE UNACCEPTABLE WAS MORE DAMAGING THAN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SAYING THINGS THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY, TOTALLY FALSE BUT FEEL GOOD IF YOU’RE A LEFT-WINGER.>>Laura: IT’S FALSE, DEFAMATORY, AND DEEPLY VINDICTIVE AT ITS CORE. I HAVE TO GET YOUR QUICK THOUGHTS ON WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THESE HEIGHTENED TENSIONS BETWEEN THE U.S. AND IRAN. ASKED IF THE U.S. WAS GOING TO RETALIATE AFTER ONE OF OUR DRONES WAS GOING TO SHUT DOWN, THE PRESIDENT HAD THIS TO SAY.>>IRAN MADE A BIG MISTAKE I MADE A MADE A BAD MISTAKE. [REPORTER QUESTIONING]>>YOU’LL FIND OUT. [REPORTER QUESTIONING]>>YOU’LL FIND OUT.>>Laura: HOW SHOULD WE RESPOND?>>THE PRESIDENT IS DOING THE RIGHT THING, YOU HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM. YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY IN WHICH CASE WE HAVE TO RETALIATE OR YOU HAVE TO FIRE SOMEBODY. IF YOU WANT TO CLAIM IT WAS A SUBORDINATE, FINE — FIRE THEM. BUT IF YOU WANT TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY, REMEMBER THIS. BECAUSE WE ARE ENERGY INDEPENDENT, BECAUSE OF THE POLICIES OF DONALD TRUMP, WE ARE EXPORTING ENERGY. WE AREN’T AFFECTED BY THE STRAIT OF HORMUZ. CHINA, INDIA, JAPAN, EUROPE, THEY HAVE A HUGE INVESTMENT IN THIS. I SUSPECT WE ARE SAYING TO THEM, YOU WANT TO HELP US PATROL THE STREETS OF HER MOOD IS? YOU’RE THE ONES WHOSE ECONOMY
