pastor, we are glad to have you the president calling the meeting with pope francis the honor of a lifetime. this is a president we have seen at the western wall, israel. this is -- these images are of a man who is elevated himself over the course of the past year, perhaps two years as a campaign, rough and ready to a man who is showing a side of himself as spiritual side. that is extraordinarily engaging. >> you have might notice on his twitter account there is a picture of the president with his hand on the western wall saying he was praying for wisdom from god. every believer ought to celebrate that. today's meeting could have had
11:37 pm
many awkward turs to it when you consider the comments both men have made. the pope accused the president of not being a christian because of his plans to build a wall and compared his populism with naziism. lou: it seems to me the pope is the one who should be seeking counsel and some forgiveness. that's a very harsh view for a pontiff to express. >> it was pretty harsh. yet we saw president trump turn the other cheek. when those men emerged from that meting, they looked like bffs. i think it was a wise choice for the president and the pope. lou: i think the president is taking some time to constrain his socialist impulses, if you
11:38 pm
will, and these bizarre yesterday expresses from time to time. the grandiose ambitious to first interstate fear in the politics of other nations is really quite something. >> it is, lou. i think the pope is a sincere man. i just think he's sincerely wrong when it comes to the role of golf in protecting -- the role of government in protecting its citizens. the foam confuses the church with the role of government which is to protect its citizens. it's god who thought of the idea of walls. i think the pope is confused about the role of government and the church. lou: you would think that confusion would be lifted

11:45 pm
it will be an important step for them to take. there are a couple countries still thinking it over. i have had meetings with one of those. they will support nato joining and becoming a normal member. lou: president trump will address the issue only 5 of the nearly 80 nato members meet. here at home, joining us is senator david perdue, a member of several committees, foreign relations and judiciary. let's begin with the president's trip. he has been met with enthusiastic, warm ceremonies and demonstrations and leaders all seemingly rushing to be at
11:46 pm
his side. how does this compare to your expectations? >> isn't it a contrast to the first trip president trump took where he visited 7 muslim countries and forgot to visit israel. but president obama seems to be getting better press internationally than is at home. what we see is the world responding to him. i traveled a lot over the last two years talking to heads of state. the number one request they had was america needs to step up and lead again. that doesn't mean 100,000 troops on the surface of syria. but we need to coalesce against terrorism and get our economy going again. lou: whether the president talks about nato in the middle east, he is talking about partnerships
11:47 pm
and relationships with these countries. he's not talking about dominating them or sitting aside and sort of with a sense of superiority commenting on what they are doing correctly or incorrectly. this is a president setting an entirely different tone for american leadership. >> that's absolutely correct. we saw in the campaign. we had a different kind of candidate. he's not an idea throg, he's a pragmatist an wants to get results. europe needs to step up to help fund their own defense. this is a local solution where we need all the partners engaged. but they need leadership from america to do that. lou: turning to matter's here at home, mitch mcconnell saying he

11:56 pm
republicans than democrats. mollie: the numbers see a little bit low given we have major national media getting tories wrong. we had a story yesterday that president trump violated all sorts of protocols sharing with the philippine president. and it was based on an anonymous leak. it turns out it was public information. there is a major problem with our media not checking sources and doing due diligence and they are getting in trouble for it. lou: how much of this do you think is purposeful deceit and attack rather than simply incompetence and mistakes? >> i would estimate 10 million
11:57 pm
percent purposeful. the russian story is a crime nobody can locate. who, what, where, when, no one can tell you what happened. i can't tell you a story of one person in this country influenced by anything russian. lou: this preposterous concoction of the russian-trump collusion, it's just stunning to me that once that's abated. there is no evidence of it. no one with the guts to deny it even though we have known for months it's a joke. now the media is turning to say do you know the president was asking the heads of two intelligence agencies to publicly disavow the story as if that were scandalous rather than common sense and reasonable.

mollie: it's interesting the media shift alleging nothing short of spree on and a stooge of vladimir putin now they are saying the real charge is obstruction of justice because donald trump was denying it's a true story. saying i want you to go public with the fact it's a made up story. there is major soul searching that should be had by the media how they have pushed one of the most delusional conspiracy theories ever to come across many news pages, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of self-introspection. even how they keep repeating the same supposedly breaking news every few weeks. there were conversations between somebody who might be russian and someone who might be in the trump campaign. >> blame james comey for this.
