  1. That guy with the "ethnic cleansing" is a real buffoon. Two years since and America has gone far ahead of all the rest of the world in Trade, economy… we renegotiated NAFTA … we placed tariffs on China and their economy is in a tail spin now they want to talk. Trudeau waited until midnight when he was going to be shut out out of the new agreement to sign. Imagine Mexican workers cannot be paid less than $15 an hour for work in the automobile industry under the new Trade agreement .. isn't Trump great?

  2. The name Clinton will forever have NAFTA tattooed to it.
    Democrats were delusional if they thought a Clinton would ever win middle America.

  3. Dude from Esquire is 100000% why NeoLiberalism is falling apart, globally. There's no argument there- just epithets and attacks.

  4. Bubble people truly live in another world than all working poor in the world. And this is our media of information? Sad

  5. it's amazing that noone on the panel really got it. He had simple , straightforward promises and ideas. That is not evidence of him being simple. That is a common trait of all people that have experience being a successful leader.Like all effective leaders, he simply will not accept the failure to succeed as a consequence of "it's a really complex problem". Hillary, like nearly all people in public service are simply convinced that the whatever is a problem is also necessarily a complex problem, because the political system has specialized in packaging all problems in any effort , to create trade-offs. When someone tries to focus on simple issues and is insistent, they lose in political life, but meanwhile, the most common success factor in real life is having obsessive, repeated, continuous focus. Everyday people that have to actually solve problems or suffer penalties, they recognize this. A large portion of the country has either forgotten this or has been lucky enough to never need to learn it. But what i find AMAZING is that there seems to be no ability of that group to even consider the fact that they may be missing something or simply wrong.

  6. ……”Smug” politics?….This host should know (as ALL of his guests are far-Left)…I have a PhD—technically, of the “elite” (but I LOATHE the thinking and behavior of much of the Left)….These guests are SO out-of-touch….Of COURSE it’s “ideological!”….The rise of populism is a reaction to IDIOTS like the jerk talking about “ethnic cleansing” here (in regards to a targeted travel ban)…NONE of these people know the “average voter,” and how he thinks, and never will…They (these voters) ideologically CONSERVATIVE….People like this group make me CHEER for populists to TAKE OVER the world!….

  7. ISLAM IS NOT A FUCKING RACE! IT'S A FUCKING RELIGION YOU FOOL. IT'S AN IDEOLOGY, A DREAM, AN ILLUSION. IT'S A DISTRACTION FROM REAL LIFE. YOU ARE NOT BORN WITH ISLAM LIKE YOU ARE BORN WITH BLACK SKIN. YOU CAN BE FORCED TO BELEIVE IN ISLAM BUT YOU ARE NOT STUCK WITH IT. DIFFERENT! FUCKING HELL. IT'S NOT LIKE MUSLIM ARE STUCK WITH ISLAM LIKE BLACK PEOPLE ARE STUCK WITH BLACK SKIN.

  8. Mr. Marche, first of all, the "3 million" are here illegally, you dipshit. Secondly, Muslim isn't a race, it's a religion. Stupid fucking leftist.

  9. If you want to skip a lot of pointless crossfire, go to 29:45 for a tight 30 secondish evaluation of what the whole hour should have been about.

    The most frustrating member of the panel is Stephen Marche. Not even because I agree or disagree with him but because he's horribly inarticulate in trying to make his point, which completely arrests the conversation. For e.g.,

    Marche: "Bannon is a racist!"
    Other panelist: "Possibly, but I don't think that's why people voted for Trump….."
    Marche: "BUT THE FACT IS HE'S A RACIST!"
    (*rinse repeat*)

    What I think Marche was trying to say (in three sentences) was: "There was a clear and disturbing racial animus that was visible in the Trump campaign. But for most of the people that voted for Trump, that issue didn't matter enough to dissuade them because other things were more important to them. I find it disturbing something that ugly wasn't important enough to disqualify Trump in many voters' eyes."

    That's a valid opinion to have, but instead he just issues general statements to the effect of "what don't you see about _x_?" that don't contribute to the point of the panel, which is assessing the value of smugness to the 2016 outcome.

  10. Why can't Liberals figure out that it's about taking out the trash! voters are sick of losing our rights and freedom .

  11. Why don't you stop bashing Trump and report all the good things he has done? When Obama put the same travel ban of people no one said anything

  12. MORE CBC FAKE NEWS & LIES! Trump said he would put a TEMPORARY BAN on the SAME MUSLIM COUNTRIES that OBAMA suggested banning! LIAR AGAIN at the CBC! SELL the LYING CORPORATION OFF!
    Why does anyone have to listen to this SHIT & pay for IT???

  13. The American workers were & are sacrificed on the ALTER of GLOBALISM & the RISE of CORPORATE PROFITS! NOT a single PARTY would even talk to these people left behind with NO HOPE!
