STAY TUNED, SHE IS UP IN JUST A

MINUTE.

THE FIRST NIGHT, AND IT WAS AN

ACT REALLY OF WANT AND CRUELTY

COMMITTED AGAINST DEFENSELESS

TELEVISION VIEWERS.

LAST NIGHT, SEEN AND SUBJECTED

TO TINY AUDIENCE TO WHAT IT

DESCRIBED AS A CLIMATE CHANGE

TOWN HALL.

THE THING WENT ON FOR SEVEN

HOURS.

THAT'S A LONG TIME.

IN FACT, THAT SO LONG THAT

CLIMATE PRODUCTIONS MADE THAT

THE START OF THE EVENING COULD

HAVE BEEN PROVEN WRONG BY THE

END.

AN ENTIRE SPECIES OF POLAR BEAR

MIGHT HAVE BECOME EXTINCT BY THE

THIRD COMMERCIAL BREAK.

THAT'S A LONG TIME.

AND YET IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE,

HUGH HARDY SOULS CENTER TO WATCH

THE ENTIRE THING.

WE CAN'T SAY WITH CERTAINTY WHAT

HAPPENED TO THEM BUT AT LEAST

ONE OF THEM LAPSED INTO TOTAL

UNCONSCIOUSNESS.

WATCH THIS.

>> ENOUGH OF HAVING THE OIL

INDUSTRY AND FOSSIL FUEL

INDUSTRY IT RIGHT ALL OF OUR

LAWS IN THIS AREA.

NO MORE.

>> Tucker: HE WAS THE LUCKY

ONE.

IF HE WAS SLEEPING DEEPLY

ENOUGH, HE MIGHT'VE MISSED CNN

ASKING JULIAN CASTRO WHAT HIS

ADMINISTRATION WOULD DO TO FIGHT

QUOTE ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM.

WE ARE NOT MAKING THAT OUT.

BUT THAT'S JUST THE TIP OF THE

RAPIDLY MELTING ICEBERG.

LAST IT WAS REALLY AN EXERCISE

IN SWEATY MORAL POSTURING.

AT TIMES, THE EVENING BECAME SO

STRIDENT THAT EVEN THE

CANDIDATES ON STAGE CAN KEEP UP

WITH IT ALL.

CORY BOOKER FOR EXAMPLE, HE

TRIED TO REASSURE VIEWERS THAT

DEMOCRATS DON'T REALLY WANT TO

TAKE PEOPLES MEET AWAY,

APPARENTLY THEY HAD FORGOTTEN

THAT KAMALA HARRIS HAD JUST

CALLED FOR THAT.

>> I HEAR ABOUT ALL THE TIME.

BOOKER WANTS TO TAKE AWAY YOUR

HAMBURGER.

WELL, THAT IS THE KIND OF WHY

AND FEARMONGERING THAT THEY

SPREAD OUT THERE THAT SOMEHOW

THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO GET RID OF

HAMBURGER.

>> Tucker: BUT WOULDN'T YOU

SUPPORT CHANGING THE DIETARY

GUIDELINES?

REDUCE RED MEAT SPECIFICALLY?

>> YES, I WOULD.

>> Tucker: .

>> Tucker: SO KAMALA HARRIS

HAS BEEN TO GET ABOUT WHAT YOU

EAT AND SHE THINKS YOU EAT TOO

MUCH RED MEAT AND SHE CLAIMS TO

DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT WHEN SHE

IS ELECTED GOD.

THAT AND A NUMBER OF OTHER

THINGS.

IN QUIET FACT THERE ARE QUITE A

FEW THINGS IN AMERICA THAT

KAMALA HARRIS CLAIMS TO BAN

IMMEDIATELY.

>> WOULD YOU COMMIT TO

IMPLEMENTING A FEDERAL BAN ON

TRACKING YOUR FIRST DAY IN

OFFICE?

ADDING THE UNITED STATES TO THE

LIST OF COUNTRIES THAT BANS THIS

DEVASTATING PRACTICE?

>> THERE IS NO QUESTION.

>> SO WOULD YOU BAN ON OFFSHORE

DRILLING?

>> YES.

AND AGAIN I'VE WORKED ON.

>> DO YOU BAN PLASTIC STRAWS

QUESTION MARKS TO GO I THINK

SHOULD, YEAH.

>> Tucker: BANNING DRINKING

STRAWS.

MINDLESS AND ANNOYING.

IF YOU ACTUALLY GET ABOUT

PLASTIC POLLUTION AND YOU SHOULD

CARE ABOUT PLASTIC POLLUTION,

BECAUSE IT'S HORRIFYING, YOU

WOULD PUNISH CHINA FOR JUMPING

PLASTICS INTO THE OCEAN BUT OF

COURSE NO ONE ON THE LEFT WANTS

TO DO THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE BUSY

IS SUCKING UP TO CHINA.

LOOK BANNING FRACKING IS JUST

DEMENTED.

OUR ENERGY SECTOR IS THE SINGLE

MOST SUCCESSFUL PART OF THE

ENTIRE AMERICAN ECONOMY.

IT'S ONE OF THE ONLY THING

PROPPING UP OUR TRADE BALANCE

RIGHT NOW.

IT'S BEEN A SAVER OF LAST RESORT

FOR RURAL AREAS DEVASTATED BY

GLOBALIZATION.

KAMAN HAS DIDN'T CARE ABOUT ANY

OF THAT AND SHE REALLY DOESN'T

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMG

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEME

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMB

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMN

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMS

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMO

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMN

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMA

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMQ

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMI

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMG

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMA

EVEN KNOW WHEN YOUR SOUL IS DEMT

ALL COSTS, DETAILS ARE NOT

RELEVANT.

ALL YOU SEE IS YOURSELF AT THE

FINISH LINE ARMS IN THE AIR.

THIS IS A POWERFUL DRUG.

ANAND IF WE ARE BEING HONEST

ABOUT IT, HARRIS WAS NOT EVEN

CLOSE TO THE LEAST APPEALING

CANDIDATE ON THE STAGE LAST

NIGHT.

THAT AWARD GOES WITHOUT QUESTION

TO FATHER PETE BUTTIGIEG, THE

PATRON SAINT OF SOUTH BEND,

INDIANA.

FATHER BUT A JUDGE WASH INTO A

SERMON LAST MAY THAT WOULD HAVE

MADE JOHN ANNA'S JONATHAN

EDWARDS PROUD.

>> IF YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD IS

WATCHING AS POISON IS BEING

BELCHED INTO THE AIR OF CREATIO

CREATION, AND PEOPLE ARE BEING

HARMED BY, COUNTRIES ARE AT RISK

OF VANISHING AND LOW-LYING AREA

AREAS, WOODY'S EXPLICIT SUPPOSE

GOD THINKS OF THAT?

I BET HE THINKS IT'S MESSED UP.

AT LEAST ONE WAY OF TALKING

ABOUT THIS IS THAT IT'S A KIND

OF SIN.

>> Tucker: YOU STARTED TO

THINK OF THE TORMENTS WAITING

FOR YOU IN FATHER PETE'S

EPISCOPALIAN VERSION OF HELL.

IMAGINE HIM LECTURING YOU FOR

ETERNITY WAGGING HIS LITTLE

FINGERS IN YOUR FACE AND

BRAGGING ABOUT HIS VIRTUE.

THAT DOESN'T MAKE YOU WANT TO

OBEY.

FATHER PETE THOUGH THERE IS NO

SUCH JUDGMENT BECAUSE AT THE

VERY SAME TIME HE IS LECTURING

YOU FATHER PETE HIMSELF IS

LIKELY TO BE SIPPING PERRIER IN

THE GULF STREAM.

ACCORDING TO AN ASSOCIATED PRESS

REPORT, HE FLIES ON CLIMATE

DESTROYING PRIVATE JETS MORE

THAN ANY OTHER DEMOCRATIC

CANDIDATE IN THE RACE RIGHT NOW.

HOW CAN THAT BE?

WE ASKED THE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN

THAT QUESTION TODAY AND HERE'S

OUR RESPONSE.

>> WE FLY COMMERCIAL AS OFTEN AS

POSSIBLE AND ONLY FLY

NONCOMMERCIAL WHEN THE SCHEDULE

DICTATES.

>> Tucker: NONCOMMERCIAL.

OH, THAT MAKES SENSE.

SO WHEN IT'S CONVENIENT, FATHER

BUT A JUDGE FOLLOWS HIS OWN

COMMANDMENTS BUT THE REST OF THE

TIME WHEN IT THE SCHEDULE

DICTATES, HE IS HAPPY TO BELCH

POISON INTO THE AIR OF CREATION.

SO WHAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO

DRINK FROM A PLASTIC STRAW,

THAT'S IMMORAL, BUT FATHER PETE

GETS TO KEEP HIS PRIVATE PLANE.

NO WONDER PEOPLE LOVE THE

CLIMATE ACTIVISM.

FOR THEM, IT'S ALL UPSIDE.

IT'S NOT SO GREAT FOR EVERYONE

ELSE UNFORTUNATELY BEARD FOR

POOR PEOPLE IN THE THIRD WORLD,

IT'S GOING TO BE ESPECIALLY

TOUGH.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO

HAVE AS MANY CHILDREN AS THEY

WOULD LIKE.

WATCH BERNIE SANDERS THIS MONEY

PAID >> WENT ON AND EDUCATING

EVERYONE ON THE NEED TO CURB

POPULATION SEEMS A REASONABLE

CAMPAIGN TO ENACT.

WOULD YOU BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH

TO DISCUSS THIS ISSUE AND MAKE

IT A KEY FEATURE OF A PLAN TO

ADDRESS CLIMATE CATASTROPHES?

>> THE ANSWER IS YES AND THE

ANSWER HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

THE FACT THAT WOMEN IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BY THE

WAY I HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL

THEIR OWN BODIES AND THEY CAN

MAKE PRODUCTIVE DECISIONS.

AND THE MEXICO CITY AGREEMENT

WHICH DENIES AMERICAN AID TO

THOSE ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE

WORLD THAT ARE --

THAT ALLOW WOMEN TO HAVE

ABORTIONS OR EVEN GET INVOLVED

IN BIRTH CONTROL TO ME IS

TOTALLY ABSURD.

>> Tucker: A GO.

SANDERS SAYS IT RIGHT OUT LOUD.

THE AFRICANS ARE HAVING TOO MANY

BABIES.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE

SURE THOSE AFRICANS HAVE MORE

ABORTIONS.

WE ARE GOING TO PAY FOR AFRICAN

ABORTIONS.

ALSO BY THE WAY WE'RE GOING HAVE

TO CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE EAT,

HOW THEY TRAVEL, AND WHAT THEY

DO FOR A LIVING, WE'RE GOING TO
