Trump And Friends Bend To NRA


>>Following the shooting that occurred in
Odessa, Texas, Donald Trump is arguing that, hey you know what, there’s really nothing
that we can do and there’s nothing that you should expect from us. Now, Trump has gone back and forth when it
comes to possible gun legislation. But it seems like after the last shooting
in El Paso, Texas, the NRA had a firm talking to with Trump. And he’s now decided that background checks
just don’t make sense. Here he is.>>Another very sick person, so I just want
to thank everybody involved. Always you say as bad as it was, it could
have been worse. I’ve been speaking to a lot of senators. We’ve been speaking to a lot of House members,
a lot of Republicans, a lot of Democrats and people want to do something. So we’re going to see this really hasn’t changed
anything, we’re doing a package, and we’ll see how it comes about. It’s coming about right now, and a lot of
people are talking about it. Looking at a lot of different things, we’re
looking at a lot of different bills, ideas, concepts. I will say that for the most part, sadly,
if you look at the last four or five, going back, even five or six or seven years, for
the most part, as strong as you make your background checks, that would not have stopped
any of them.>>That’s just a straight out lie, it’s
just a complete and utter lie. We all know that there are significant loopholes
when it comes to obtaining a weapon without a background check. You can go to a gun show and just purchase
it from the back of someone’s truck. The way Dylann Roof was able to get a gun
was the FBI, and how the FBI only has three days to return with an answer about whether
or not someone can obtain a gun. And if they don’t respond within three days,
well, then a gun seller can go ahead and sell the gun.>>Well-
>>Full stop, no problem with that.>>We don’t even have to go back in the past. This guy seems to have gotten his weapon without
a background check. I wouldn’t have helped. It wouldn’t have helped. Well, it couldn’t hurt. If he had a background check, he could have
been stopped. And the cops are saying, and even the Governor
was a Republican, a jerk who doesn’t mind any of these massacres. Cuz he keeps taking money and aiding and abetting,
then which we’ll get to in a second. Even he says, well, it looks like he abated
a background check. Yeah, because you don’t have them at private
gun shows, you have giant massive loopholes. And so he chose to go, it wouldn’t have helped
at all. No, it would have 100% helped in this particular
case, let alone other cases. That’s what it looks like based on the initial
reporting. And I find Trump now physically repulsive.>>Agreed.>>Just even looking at him. They call it a word salad, in his case, it’s
like a word of vomit. Just a bunch of words that make no sense next
to one another. This buffoon is our president. It’s a national and international embarrassment
every single day. But we’re working on it, we’re working on
a package, what package? You’re not working on anything. The only package they’re gonna bring back
is the same thing they did in Florida. More guns instead of less guns cuz they’re
all corrupt cuz they all take money from the NRA. Okay, so, and he said earlier, god, if you’re
a Trump supporter, you’re so pathetic. You’re the most pathetic person there is,
cuz he’s actually, that buffoon is someone you look up to. Bum it is, okay. So he said earlier, we’re gonna do background
checks after the last shooting. Then Wayne LaPierre grabbed him by the ear
and said, hey, listen, you stupid idiot, I own you, I gave you $30 million in the last
election. And they did that, and already gave 70 million
to the Republicans overall, and 30 million to Trump in 2016. And after he grabbed Trump by the ear like
Vlad does, Trump was like, I’m sorry, wait, I’m sorry. And like the moron that he is and like he
does with Putin, he came out in public and admitted it. He said, I just talked to the NRA and they’re
very big supporters of mine so I don’t want to do background checks anymore.>>Yup, saying the quiet parts out loud always,
always.>>Because he’s so unbelievably stupid. If you follow him, you’re so sad. If you look up to him, I don’t wanna know
you. All right, so I’m gonna repeat TYT.COM/NEVERNRA. You should never ever vote and should pledge
to never vote for anyone who takes NRA money. It isn’t about the votes. If they don’t take the bribes and then they
vote against gun control anyway, okay, it’s a free country. But at least we need to know that you are
not corrupt. And everybody who takes gun money is of course
corrupt. They didn’t give $70 million for their health
or for charity. Look, anyone who doesn’t understand that is
trying really hard not to understand that cuz you’d have to be mentally deficient not
to understand that. That’s $70 million in legalized bribes. If you’re a reporter saying that that did
not affect their votes, well, you’re doing political correctness. Well, I’m not gonna say the thing that is
super duper obvious to the whole goddamn country. Because the Republicans would be mad at me,
so I am not going to be factually correct. I’m going to be politically correct and say,
I can’t tell why the shootings are happening. I can’t tell if the NRA money is affecting
these corrupt goddamn politicians. If you can’t tell, you’re an idiot, you should
stop being a reporter.>>Look, why do you think everyone freaked
out at Joaquin Castro when he shared information about business owners in the State of Texas
donating money to Donald Trump, to individuals who have absolutely no interest in protecting
constituents from these mass shootings? They freaked out because it opens eyes. It lets people know why it is that our lawmakers
value these loose gun laws over the lives of actual Americans.>>Hey, idiot reporters, you know what the
source of the power of the politicians is? The money, how stupid are you? You should write it in every goddamn article. It’s the money, it’s the donors. 93% of Americans have figured it out and 93%
of journalists haven’t. 93% of Americans say the politicians are controlled
by their donors and not by their voters. How many times do I have to scream how obvious
it is? But every reporter in the country goes, I
can’t tell, I can’t tell. In fact, the range of people like Bernie Sanders
on behalf of Hillary Clinton. I remember Anderson Cooper saying in a debate,
are you saying that the donor money might have affected our votes? Goddamn right, we’re saying that! And if you’re not saying that, you’re not
a real reporter, you’re a schmuck who wants to just have a job. It’s not even that, what is it? Some of you I know get paid millions of dollars
on television, but most of you don’t even get paid that much.>>Right?>>You just bought into a stupid idea, I didn’t
ask the politician. I didn’t kiss the politician’s ass. No, they take the money, they’re corrupt,
the country hates politicians. Why do you think they hate them? Because they take money, and we get killed,
it’s not that complicated. So let’s go to Greg Abbott, son of a bitch
pretending to care about the people of Texas.>>Well first, he started off with a tweet,
and I’m gonna share that with you. He said, not only did the Odessa gunman have
a criminal history, he also previously failed a gun purchase background check in Texas. And he didn’t go through a background check
for the gun he used in Odessa. We must keep guns out of criminal’s hands. So there are so many things in this tweet. Let’s keep it up, because I want to address
it point by point. Not only did the Odessa gunman have a criminal
history, he also previously failed a gun purchase background check in Texas. That is not true. In fact, he did have a criminal history. And The Washington Post reports that would
not have prevented him from legally purchasing firearms in Texas. So just to reiterate what his crime was. He was arrested for evading arrest and criminal
trespass in 2001 and received a form of probation after pleading guilty to both misdemeanor
charges. Again, that would not have prevented him from
purchasing a firearm in Texas. Secondly, he says he didn’t go through a background
check for the gun he used in Odessa. Yeah, that’s the point, that’s the point,
that’s the point that we’ve been trying to make, right? There should be a background check for everyone
who is seeking to purchase a gun. Now, he got his hands on an AR-15 style weapon
without having to go through a background check. So we need to figure out why that is? In the state of Texas is called a non-contact
state, point of contact state, meaning that they do not require federal background checks. They do not communicate with Federal authorities
when it comes to background checks. So it’s really easy to purchase a gun in Texas
by skirting any of the Federal background check laws.>>These politicians are such slime.>>Yeah, they are slime.>>And Greg Abbott is among the worst of the
worst. So he comes out and says, yeah, as if he cares
about background checks. Looks like he didn’t go through a background
check. Well, what have you been doing? You’ve been voting against them your whole
life. You’ve been arguing against them your whole
life.>>Right.>>And Texas has some of the loosest gun restrictions
and you just made them looser, just on Sunday. And then the son of a bitch turns around and
pretends, my god, I’m so outraged! It seems like you didn’t go through a background
check. That’s because of you, Greg Abbott. That’s because you took money from the NRA. You put it into your pocket, you put it in
your campaign, then you thought, well, how could I kiss your ass, NRA? I don’t care how many massacres there are. Sutherland Springs, Santa Fe High School,
El Paso, Odessa, Midland, doesn’t care. Greg Abbott never cared. The only thing he cares about is the check
that he cashes from the NRA.>>And he ends that tweet with, we must keep
guns out of criminals’ hands. So what is your solution? What is the solution to keep guns out of criminals’
hands. Now the argument that you hear from these
pro gun right wingers is, well, if you pass laws, the criminals aren’t gonna follow the
law. And they’re going to get their hands on the
guns anyway. But for the people who buy that incredibly
dumb argument, couldn’t you extend that to anything else? We shouldn’t have any laws because there are
naturally gonna be some people who break the law anyway. So let’s not have any laws. Let’s have complete lawlessness. Let’s allow people to drink and drive. Let’s not have any laws on the books for that.>>I’ve got one better. I’ve got one better, Ana. Why do you need rules on abortion? People get around them anyway.>>Exactly.>>Regulations never work.>>Exactly.>>They never work, when it comes to guns,
you say they never, ever, ever work, they’re gonna do it anyway. Why not on abortion? So which one is it? Do regulations and laws work or don’t they
work? Make up your goddamn mind. Okay, I’m gonna give you more Greg Abbott. So he says in a quote here, I am heartbroken
by the crying of the people in the state of Texas, lie. I’m tired of the dying of the people of Texas,
lie. No, as long as he keeps cashing those NRA
checks, thrilled, couldn’t care less. He says the status quo in Texas is unacceptable
and action is needed, but what action? You’re gonna put more guns in Texas, you dummy. Well, he’s not a dummy, to be fair. He’s a perfectly intelligent person who’s
just grotesquely corrupt. And as long as he keeps getting paid, couldn’t
care less about the massacres of his people in Texas.>>So let’s go to the next video. Here’s Greg Abbott elaborating on his thoughts
regarding gun laws.>>What do you say to people who would look
at and wonder if Texas is going at the wrong direction to stopping more shooting?>>Well, for example, one of the laws that
went into effect and some deal with issues like this. And that is laws that ensure that school marshals,
more school marshals will be able to have guns to keep schools safer. So some of these laws were enacted for the
purpose of making our community safer.>>More guns.>>More guns.>>That’s the solution.>>More guns. Let’s flood the country, let’s flood the state
with more guns, let’s put more armed individuals on school campuses. That’s the solution that Greg Abbott has. Is it any surprise that someone who takes
NRA money has the one and only solution of pumping more guns into the public? Come on.>>Yeah, well, people will take checks to
sell their bodies are called prostitutes. I think we’ve got to come up with a new term,
because selling your body, no, you know you can make an argument. A lot of people do that in a lot of different
ways and I don’t see anything wrong with that. Selling your soul on the other hand, that’s
a different matter. I don’t know what level of prostitute that
makes you, but whatever level it is, that’s definitely the level Greg Abbott and Donald
Trump are in.

100 thoughts on “Trump And Friends Bend To NRA

  • If we were faithful to what is actually said in the 2nd Amendment, we wouldn't have a problem with regulating assault weapons.
    "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed",
    It stipulates "A well regulated Militia" which is singular not plural, and that means that the onus, to create and WELL REGULATE A MILITIA, is on the FEDERAL government, not just any state government, but THE GOVERNMENT OF THE AMERICAN STATE. In that Constitutional sentence, "A FREE STATE" has to be a reference to THE STATE OF AMERICA. THE U.S. DOES (((NOT))) CONSIDER ITSELF TO BE AN EMPIRE, therefore it is simply a Sovereign-State amongst the other Sovereign-States of the World. the Individual States that make up the U.S. are most certainly NOT sovereign like the U.S.of A.

  • Americans just don't want foreigners killing Americans, they are totally fine with a white dude gunning down as many people as possible.

  • To show that gun control is really bad – just think a man can declare that a political candidate for president should be killed, say he can shoot someone on 5th av and get away with it.
    Trump has a concealed carry permit and owns guns.

  • Nothing America can do? So what is so different about America? Why aren't mass murders like this normal worldwide? Yeah, countries in civil wars, countries in intense poverty, countries that lack any real government at all and are failed states you have more violence than America. But in most of Europe, Australia, Japan, South Korea, etc… most of the developed world DOES NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM!

    So what is so different about America?

  • Its wrong to have a comparison of the logic of having more gun control laws wont do anything because criminals dont follow the law with lets not have any laws against drunk driving because people will do it any way. Its more akin to having more regulations against the purchase of alcohol (I.e. must have a background check in order for someone to buy a case of beer to see if they've ever had a dwi before.) Thats a more fair comparison.

  • Not being funny here, but aren’t many (not all, just a lot) of these shooters, kids who stole the guns from their license carrying, law abiding parents? I’m for background checks, and stringent control, but I don’t think either of those will help, if the guns are owned legally.

  • I really don't get why the NRA is against at least checks Jesus people would still be able to LEGALLY purchase weapons and would be assured to at least not be a criminal and somewhat sane. How could that hurt the NRA? They sell a few less weapons to lunatics and criminals?

  • No, unfortunately, all Americans are looking at this incorrectly. It isn't exactly a gun issue, it's an action issue. The question could be asked, if an unhinged individual walks into a school (intentionally) with a S&W 6 shooter the carnage would be horrific understandably, but, if they walked into the same school with an AR15 and extended magazines; those consequences would be categorically all-encompassing trauma to massive population percentages as seen. The licensing issue sadly isn't working, clearly a result of corruption. Individual states can fix this issue by outlawing semi/fully automatic actions as they're designed for one thing. Simple resolution – grow a pair. Furthermore, I question why a/some state/s haven't tried this method or does the NRA tentacles protrude that far? This law has no impact on the second amendment, as you'd still have the right to bear arms.

  • You find Trump "now" physically repulsive? What took you so long? He has ALWAYS been physically repulsive, all his miserable, worthless life.

  • when its a WHITE killer his a " deranged person with mental issues".
    when its a black or brown person their " terrorists".
    everyone is the world knows chump is a racist piece of shit.

  • Time and again when people talk about the number of gun deaths the number of people killed by cars comes up and the subject of banning cars is raised. Now you can't ban cars and its seems you can't ban guns so why not make gun owners have insurance like car drivers do, the more responsible the gun owner the cheaper the insurance and the money from the insurance of course paying the costs incurred by the victims

  • Trump and the GOP do just what they were bribed for. We should finally accept that there is a large group of voters who have no problem with the bloodshed and the carnage as long as they get what they want. Don't blame the right-wing for acting like the right-wing.

  • The worst part is if you look at the money given vs lives lost. Basically our government which has an annual budget of trillions is willing to continue letting people die for 70 million! I think that's sick!

  • Vote this lunatic criminal out “ and by the way NRA don’t forget to send me the dark money to get me re elected again next year “

  • Lawlessness really

    2nd amendment clearly says right to bear arms

    Cannot be infringed upon

    Well regulated militia

    all guns have numbers that can be traced back to the owner, and those stats are staked against gun owners not taking into consideration other types of violent crimes

  • So by libtard logic take away rights and freedoms from law abiding people and everything will get better like in Chicago Baltimore new York San Francisco Compton Detroit etc.

  • I spent my first decade in Odessa in the 1960s. I lived across the street from Burnett Elementary School. It was like having a giant front yard with swings and a slide. I wonder if Sherwood Park is still there. Sorry, I just don't have anything left to say about mass shootings.

  • Trump or the government can’t do anything. It’s called the constitution. The constitution is rules that govern the government not the people. Shall not be infringed really means that. So take your gun control and shove it. No thanks Mr. Government I’ll take my freedom.

  • So if background checks don't work why is the NRA so against them… prove everyone wrong the wrong 🤔

    Smh.

    There is no one solution to any complex human problem but each little control helps. This is like saying seat belts don't save all lives in a car crash so no more seatbelts for anyone

  • The last 30 faked massacres were so bad our government has resorted to going after ammo retailers starting with the biggest one Walmart. This is a covert operation, illegal, immoral, hypocritical and exposed at the leak in my profile. Learn why they so desperately want to disarm us. ( those involved in the 9/11 black ops have had their playbook exposed in great detail so they're being destroyed by a state-controlled media. Remember the Waltons own most of Walmart stock )

  • always good messages guys, but as a fan, i would say to Cenk, careful with the massive and broad name calling. i know its all frustrating and being calm may end up not really changing any of their minds, but its important to remember they will use any bit against us even just to themselves, and they are at least more likely to understand if we aren't screaming in their face. there are those among the brainwashed who follow that side because they are just scared and don't know what to do, and its important to always give facts and support, even if 80% deny them, 20% will be swayed and step for step is how we'll get our country safe again.

  • Cenk is against violence but conjures images of political opponents being tarred and feathered.

    Saying “politically” doesn’t remove the evocation of violence, just like when Cenk’s Nephew says “…in a video game” doesn’t change his calls to violence.

  • What's this 3 days thing they're talking about? Is that only in certain states? I've bought guns at 2 different stores in the last year, and the background check took less than a minute both times. I was in and out of the store in about 10 minutes. (I live in Texas)

  • I find it laughable that some Americans are allowing the government and media to take away civil rights for the promise of safety.

  • That makes sense,Cenk not reporter,instigator? How are you and Anna going to feel when ANTIFA does a shooting and gives TYT credit for inspiration!?

  • Cenk Gerald Celente calls the media PRESSTITUTES as in PROSTITUTES. POLITICIANS ARE PROSTITUTES SO YOU AND ANA AND OTHERS CAN TRY AND COME UP WITH A NAME FOR THE POLITICIANS. POLY MEANS MANY AND TICS ARE BUGS. THE LOWEST OF THE LOWEST ARE POLITICIANS.

  • All people involved in whites supremacy nazis should never be allowed to have guns. They should be considered Terrorist groups, a danger to united states citizens, and public enemy number one…

  • We need M2 Machine Guns on every Texas corner. Have some M72 LAW rockets, anti personal mines whatever else why are they all illegal? What if a gang charged at my home semi auto aint gona cut it.

  • Mr Trump and all other politicians support a DTO (Domestic Terrorist Orginzation)… Trump and McConnell are the biggest supporters.

  • That background noise is not helicopter blades. It's actually a Gatorade sprayer for the lawn. "Electrolytes folks, they love it"

  • It’s so amusing watching TYT act as if there is no US Constitution preventing law makers from acting in a way that would permanently rid the country of mass shootings.

    At this point I’m unsure of what’s motivating their commentary the most.

    Are they being disingenuous to pander to their rabid audience or are they seriously that ignorant about the second amendment of the US Constitution?

  • "As bad as it was, it could have been worse." Yeah you can apply that to anything. I can get fired from work, and yeah that's bad, but I could be fired from work and then raped on the train home. Things can always be worse. He's a condescending ass for saying that in an attempt to talk about this issue.

  • Right Wing assholes can't be trusted to step foot in public let alone carry weapons. When America becomes Socialist they will be disarmed and sent to school to re-educate them and teach them peace, love and respect of their neighbours.

  • TYT should do a piece on Governor Kim Reynolds of Iowa. She's ruined our state and making it worse on every level. She signed the fetal heartbeat law into effect; banned transgenders from Medicaid; completely killed Planned Parenthood and vetoed Iowa's ONLY medical cannabis expansion that would've allowed more than 3% THC for dying people chronic pain sufferers; etc, so Iowans have to travel out of state and break the law and get punished because she sucks at governing. She is a vortex of evil that deserves to be on TYT! Please Cenk & Ana! She is also one of the biggest recipients and supporters of the NRA so there's another reason she belongs on your show!

  • You have to make the law show that the person that sold him the gun does the same amount of time as the person who committed the crime because they were a co-conspirator

  • Ana, stop being such a hypocrite and two face. Bernie also bent to the NRA as he always voted against all gun controls and voted for more guns in the streets. Hey, he even voted to protect powerful gun corporations. And this is not from a hateful Republican. I am a Democrat.

  • Yes, he acquired the gun without a background check, but what if the guy who sold him the gun would have been stopped from buying that gun by a background check?

  • Background checks aren’t the overall solution , it’s a small portion and is not guaranteed to work … having armed security in public places is more affective .

  • i CAN'T WAIT UNTIL cHUNK HAS A HEART ATTACK ON THE LIVE STREAM. wHAT PART OF SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED ON DON'T YOU TARDS NOT UNDERSTAND?

  • When I was in high school we had 5 armed constables on campus at all times , you know how many school shootings we had ? 0

  • Better than bending to Muhammad and the terrorist religion Islam. 911, Paris, Brussels, Texas, Boston, California, Germany, London, Sweden, Jemma Islamya in Indonesia, Bali, southern thailand, the Philippines, Attacking Israel after stealing jewish land, chopping off peoples heads ( I remember reading about some poor christian girls loosing their heads in Indonesia to Muslims as they were going to Church), Burma, splitting up India and Pakistan still hammering India, Australia, shall I go on? If we need to ban anything or say never to anything its not the NRA, its Muslims, Islam, and the lunatics on the left.

  • Typical NRA shill is that the problem with too many guns is not enough guns. One of these days, perhaps in Texas, an active shooter will trigger a bunch of armed vigilantes into a massive bloodbath of civilians and cops. An NRA wet dream.

  • How are you going to force a private seller to do a background check? If you are a DEALER at a gun show you have to do a background check. A private seller who is not a dealer does not (you can’t sell to someone who you know to be a felon, though). There is no way to enforce people running background checks without a national gun registration.

  • WTF?!? IT'S CLEAR THAT THE WORST EVER POTUS PRES. DUMP IS 2 MUCH OF A COMPLETE & UTTER IMBECILE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT A BACKGROUND CHECK ACTUALLY IS! ALL OF THE OTHER MAGA MORONS & VARIOUS OTHER RIGHT WING NUTS ARE IN FAVOR OF GUNS, AND THEY CALL THEMSELVES PRO LIFE, IT SEEMS THE HYPOCRISY & IRONY ESCAPES ALL OF THEM!!

  • Trump is going make abiding citizens loose there guns, smart of him he encourage white supremacy, so one needs pay for all those poor peoples deaths.

  • trump is one clueless twat,lock him up,he's one dumbass,lying prick.a true dotard, ' it could have been worse',so if the shooter had killed 500 people,would he do anything about it,NO,because the nra own his fat retard ass.corrupt gop politicians and stupid under-educated gop voters,and the US wonders why Europoean tourism is falling.

  • "I pledged allegiance to the flag of the once United States of America. To the republic for which it claimed to stand. But we've become a nation under God forsaken fools. Highly divisible. Liberated by lies. Justified by complacency. Moral high ground it was built upon has already begun to erode. The blood of the fallen seeping in, widening the chasm, washing away the very land our men died for. No, a house divided against itself cannot stand. What good is a folded flag, or a heart-shaped medal to a grieving family? Our nation has become indifferent to sacrifice. Apathetic to the ideas of our forefathers. The time has come for Wolves to lay claim to this land. The betrayal we faced gave us liberty. Now we wage war against this plague with fear and retribution for all."
