jillian: the director of social justice for bernie sanders's campaign, thanks for being here. you heard griff reference amy klobuchar saying she had a great night. a lot of people echoed that sentiment. she is your winner. >> i thought she did a good job. overall i was disappointed in the debate over all but she did a good job of having talk time as the front runner. the solution swung on mayor pete, did a great job landing a net punch but breaking news announcement to vice president joe biden, those who were dragged to this country in chains to be slaves are not immigrants. he made a major fumble. i don't know why they say he did a great job, i disagree. he had a major gaffe and, reparations, talked about immigrants. that was not the question. he did not answer it and moderators let him get away with it.

she swung every chance and punched. heather: are candidate who didn't to the best job you hire loser of the debate night is tom stier. listen to a soundbite here, he made a reference to hillary clinton. listen to this. >> my experience building a business, understanding how to make that happen means i can go toe to toe with mister trump. we need an unconventional way of attacking an unconventional president who actually went after the best prepared candidate in american history and beat her. jillian: the best prepared candidate in american history. >> what does that have to do with what we are talking about now? tom stier is not prepared. he had 11 minutes, one minute more than andrew yang and no one remembers anything he says other than that. i'm not trying to bash the guy but he should put his money behind someone else, perhaps
cory booker, perhaps julian castro. i don't think he is prepared for this. he is a billionaire and is successful and kudos to him but he's not impressive. he does better at doing commercials and talk about the environment. rob: we appreciate it. jillian: it is 11 minutes after the hour. a deadly explosion rocking a neighborhood to its core, the streets turning into a war zone. what led to this devastating blow. >> what more -- >> i'm over here. >> what more for the american people? i am sorry, mister stier. rob: not so clap happy. andrew yang, the moderator, trying to get the attention his way, the embarrassing case of mistaken identity that happened last night. ♪ that's not my name ♪ that's not my name ♪ that's not my name ♪ this time of year, that's really important. so we're making it easier than ever

rob: impeachment proceedings at a standstill until next year. congress leaving for christmas break without sending any articles to the senate. jillian: republican slammed the impeachment is a legitimate and illegal. >> reporter: the announcement that there will be no more houseboats until january 7th confirmed the house will not send those articles of impeachment of the senate until next year. nancy pelosi thanking house democrats for moral courage even quoting henry v. with few, we happy few, we band of brothers, we today that should this blood shall be my brother. not even shakespeare could spare nancy pelosi the wrath of mitch mcconnell. >> when speaker pelosi suggested house democrats might be too afraid to even transmit their shoddy work product to the
senate, prosecutors getting cold feet in front of the entire country and second guessing whether they even want to go to trial. so urgency couldn't wait for due process but now they are content to sit on their hands. >> mcconnell and chuck schumer mapping out the senate trial, democrats hope to introduce new witnesses, a no go for mcconnell. donald trump weighing in on twitter, quote, so after the democrats gave me no due process in a house, no lawyers, no witnesses, no nothing they want to tell the senate how to run their trial, 0 proof of anything, they will never even show up. they want out. i want an immediate trial. to muddy the legal waters, noah feldman, the law professor who testified for the dems has forcefully stated for a president to be impeached the house must actually send the articles to the senate, not just metaphorically, actually need to be delivered.
rob: maybe he is not even technically impeached yet. jillian: two people dead after a massive explosion and fire in philadelphia. one person still missing. the blast level three homes. a sinkhole has opened up in the street. dozens of people are out of their homes after being evacuated. authorities think a gas leak triggered the explosion and set the inferno. the residents tried searching for victims before firefighters arrived. >> there's nothing else you can do and a minute later the house collapsed. >> reporter: the doorbell camera on home two weeks away show how powerful the blast shook the neighborhood. rob: a lawsuits challenging arrests by ice agents at new york courthouses moving forward, the federal judge ruling, quote, courts cannot be expected to
function properly if third parties are free to disrupt proceedings and intimidate parties by staging arrests for unrelated civil violations in the courthouse. the state of new york filed the suit claiming people are not showing up for court in fear of being arrested by immigrations and customs enforcement. jillian: congress cracking down on harmful and annoying robo calls. >> shares deputy will come here and arrest me? >> absolutely. >> for what? jillian: a north carolina police officer, a would be scammer. rob: these people are so annoying. the house and senate passing a bill that would fine robo callers and scammers $10,000 per call. phone companies are required to try blocking the call with no charge to customers. the president expected to sign that bill into law. some things are bipartisan, hatred for robo calls is one.
andrew yang sending a warning to democrats last night on the debate stage. >> the more we act like donald trump is the cause of our problems more american lose trust. we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment. rob: a couple points last night. will the trump up session be the downfall for democrats? jillian: what emerged from last night's debate, live to explain. ♪
problems the more americans lose trust. we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment. jillian: andrew yang calling out democrats and the mainstream media for impeachment obsession. rob: is he right? democrats more focused on impeachment than the issues? jillian: joining us, legal advisor for the trump 2020 campaign, jenna ellis. he spoke the least but had powerful things to say because we are talking about it this morning. >> reporter: democrats had little to say about the economy because they can't argue with the results donald trump has gotten for america and we have 7 million new jobs, 30% wage growth and the lowest unemployment so this is a bipartisan issue and showing donald trump is on behalf of all-america not just one political party. the democrats were hesitant to weigh in on that and strayed from talking about actual policy because they can't contend with donald trump so they are talking about the impeachment.
rob: is that why we see hesitation from nancy pelosi? does it go together? the obsession over donald trump, is that a loser to be focused on the president when there is so much else to focus on? >> it shows they have no policy priorities, just to have a hatred of donald trump is not a winning strategy. we are seeing great momentum going into 2020 for donald trump and nancy pelosi's strategy, first it was we have to get this impeachment in so soon because this is a nexus essential threat to democracy and now she is saying i want to hold this back and not put the articles forward to the senate and wait until -- that is a complete self owned that anyone sees through. rob: it could be an excuse to not do it altogether. that is what some people are saying. >> the american people see through it. jillian: andrew yang, i'm curious what you think of the fact that he did stray from the
pack last night. do you think more moderate or independents take notice of this? they will be more interested in him? is this plan? >> he is trying to separate himself out as reasonable because you see how far left all these candidates are going, to separate himself out and say i am a little different because he sees the momentum is so in favor of donald trump and that is why the campaign launched democrats for trump last night because there are so many democrats who feel disenfranchised by the party going so far socialist left, antithetical to the constitution, american values, privatizing freedom and all the things that make america great. donald trump is saying there is so much, such a wide tent that we can welcome you. they will go to donald trump more than andrew yang.
rob: democrats would say a lot of republicans are disaffected by the republican party and the president's comments and the things he does, they can push it the other way. >> i don't think the numbers show that if you are seeing the fundraising dollars, $5 million in the vote of impeachment and bipartisan support in congress against impeachment and we are seeing such momentum and look at the rallies, these -- americans i talk to every day, so many messages on a campaign of people who love donald trump, that is a talking point for democrats hoping to salvage something of their identity crisis but we are not seeing that on the campaign trail. rob: all right, 26 after the hour. uncle joe wants to go green even if it means taking away blue-collar jobs. >> would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth even though it could display thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers. >> the answer is yes.
yeah. what are we gonna do with these? keep it at your desk, and save it for next time. geico. over 75 years of savings and service. can you tell me the story again? every family has their own unique story. give your family the chance to discover theirs this holiday season, with ancestry. this holiday season, does scrubbing grease feel like a workout? scrub less with dawn ultra. it's superior grease-cleaning formula gets to work faster. making easy work of tough messes. dawn takes care of tough grease, wherever it shows up. scrub less, save more... with dawn.
>> we have a president running the most corrupt administration in the modern history of this country. >> this is a global watergate. >> stop being obsessed over impeachment. >> coalition to bring it back to office with 80% of the vote. >> you tried and lost by 20 points. billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the united states. >> 100 times mine. >> this president is not against
immigration, his against immigration by nonwhite people. >> we will have to medicare for all single-payer system. >> it cost $30 trillion, let's get that straight, $30 trillion over ten years. >> tens of millions of people across the country are ready to build in america who won't just work for those at the top. >> to beat trump let's move to the top of the country. >> the american people don't play games, don't -- rob: california, the top 7 candidates went head the head in the latest round of primary debate. jillian: carly shimkus breaks down the major moments of social media plus republican strategist joining us for a debate of our own. rob: this comment from joe biden seems to go against the blue-collar roots.
>> would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth even though it could display thousands, hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interests of transitioning to the green economy? >> the answer is yes. rob: is that the best message across the rustbelt in the midst of a booming economy? let's talk about that. i want to start with the you. what did you make of joe biden's soundbite? >> it is a risky play. he is looking at the democratic primary and a need to convey a commitment to a green economy, climate change, the core issues democratic voters are considering especially as they view joe biden is behind the times on some of these things but a lot of his support comes from rustbelt blue-collar workers and that is part of his electability argument that he can take on donald trump in a
place where he is particularly popular but part of the issue is he can't say he is going to replace their jobs too quickly because there is too much uncertainty and a lot of angst around the future of work and what their jobs look like in the future. with the economy going we have seen wage close, 3%, a lot of concern that hasn't hit the rustbelt. a lot of changing the economy because of the change in technology and manufacturing so it is risky for joe biden to lean into this without saying there is a retraining program. rob: if biden got the nomination in the rustbelt state what did you make of it? >> joe biden is understanding where the future is, trillions of dollars in china invested in
green energy, mining cobalt in africa, lithium in south america and mexico, jobs of the future will exist in the green energy economy. we are not going to rebuild the whale oil industry of 150 years ago. joe biden is making a statement about the reality. if you talk to any young person they would rather have a tesla than a ford. that is the way technologies going in the future. those jobs are going to come back to the rustbelt but won't go back - >> hillary clinton tried to make the same statement in 2016. let's listen to andrew yang on the same topic. >> the network didn't do us any favors by missing why donald trump became president in the first place. 4 million manufacturing jobs in ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, wisconsin, missouri.
rob: talking about the blue states the president magically won and andrew yang hits the nail on the head about how that election was taken from the democrats. what do you think? >> we have seen manufacturing jobs creep back up. there was this decline but now that we have progress on china and the new mexico trade deal has been passed. there is an argument to be made that there may be progress to bring those jobs back but anytime you talk about this you have 2 pair it with worker retraining programs if you are talking about jobs in the future, you can just tell them they are not going to have a job. rob: showing these critical states that have to be won, we show you the before and after on unemployment has trump goes into office, you see how these numbers have dropped, a pretty good chunk, 20% in most cases, look at missouri.
how do you as a democrats say we will take these jobs away as the president is trying to put them back? >> know anything they will take jobs away. once we get to a better debate format when we don't have tom styron stage taking up time, substantively into issues they will expound, we are going to transition from cold to making solar panels, transition from producing diesel and gasoline powered vehicles, it is not about taking jobs but creating and transitioning to the future and understanding the argument that a lot of these jobs uptick is coming from the credit card, running up the national debt to not pay for tax cuts. once we pay for that and deal with $23 trillion national debt we are going to live in reality. all the republicans who run up the credit card -- >> both parties live in never
never land when it comes to the national debt, thank you for your time, appreciate it. jillian: a smaller group on stage but the slings were bigger, the candidates taking more digs at each other especially pete buttigieg and elizabeth warren. >> billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the united states. >> this is the problem with issuing purity test you cannot your self pass. jillian: how do americans react to the night's biggest moments. good morning. ♪ 's really important. so we're making it easier than ever to become part of our family. that's why our chevy employee discount is now available to everyone. the chevy price you pay is what we pay. not a cent more. family is important to us.
did americans react, the author of persuasion, convincing others when facts don't seem to matter and partner and president lee gardner. thanks for being here. there were a lot of moments, fewer candidates but significant punches thrown. let's get to one of them, andrew yang talked about the media and impeachment. >> media network didn't do us any favors by missing the reason donald trump became our president in the first place. the more we act like donald trump is because of all our problems the more americans lose trust that we can see what is going on in our communities and solve those problems. we have to stop being obsessed over impeachment. >> democrats gave it to be, republicans gave it to see. very divided country. republicans pretty much don't give democrats credit for
anything and vice versa. this is a pretty big moment for andrew yang and important to watch, they are saying i agree with you. jillian: i will independents feel about andrew yang who is separating himself from the pack? let's talk elizabeth warren and pete buttigieg, and interesting fight they got into over wine caves. >> billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the united states. >> according to forbes magazine i am the only person on this stage who is not a millionaire or billionaire. this is important. this is the problem with issuing purity tests you cannot your self pass. >> that line about the purity tests is a talker. >> i'm sure he didn't know that was coming. you can see republicans,
independents responded across the board. warren -- his quick response gave him credit. he had a good night last night. >> surprise democrats gave him an a for that because it goes against the rest of them with the purity test line. >> it does but can't just hate all of the success. there is a line somewhere and he said look at me. i'm not one of you. >> let's talk about what joe biden said about the economy. >> talk to the old neighbors you grew up, the middle class is getting killed. the middle class is getting crushed, the working-class has no way out as a consequence of that. the idea we are growing. we are not growing.
the wealthier growing. ordinary people are not growing, they are not healthy with where they are. we must change this presidency now. >> democrats agree with him and give him a become independence a d, republicans an f. the reality, independents are completely out of touch. they are not struggling, they are not feeling the same way he is describing. they felt he wasn't in touch. democrats agree with him. >> let's listen to what joe biden had to say on healthcare, speaking to bernie sanders, listen to this. >> $30 trillion over ten years, some say it cost 40. the idea that you will be able to save that person making $60,000 a year on medicare for all.
>> across the board, independents a c and republicans a c-we would be better not to be so angry and come through. the point most people said is enough medicare for all, it is not going to work. the thing people react to was his anger. >> thank you for joining us. rob: breaking overnight a person is found dead and the baby is found alive, the desperate search for a missing austin, texas mom leads police to a grim discovery two hours away. we are live outside houston with the latest coming up next.
