a memo from the white house says cabinet members will go on 35 trips touting inflation reduction act and the administration accomplishments in the next few weeks. the event at the white house on september 6. plans do not seem to be based in reality. >> after months of democratic negotiation, joe biden will sign what he calls landmark climate at the white house today and the president will travel across the country to articulate how they claim the inflation reduction act will help americans, despite analysis that estimates those earning less than $400,000 a year will pay an estimated $20
billion in taxes as result of $740 billion package which sets aside $80 billion to hire 87,000 irs agents. a former fbi whistleblower says the idea they are going to go after large corporations is bs, they will give themselves bonuses and promotions. while democrats won't say when the spending bill will cut inflation, republicans on capitol hill blame the president for making things worse. >> president biden has stepped on every rake in the yard. i don't mean to be unfair, it is
cringe worthy, he's mismanaged congress, covid, crime, mismanaged the border, mismanaged afghanistan, mismanaged economy and the inflation and forfeited america's energy independence. >> kevin: a lot of mismanagement. -- says his party has a likeability problem and democrats need to talk like normal people instead of msnbc hosts. interesting observation. >> todd: can i havin explained in his piece and what maloney is saying there, democrats have a major problem, what this is, it is not inflation reduction act, we are going to raise your taxes
act. democrats need to put lipstick on this pig, republicans need to remind the nation this does nothing to lower the price you are paying for goods, nothing to improve taxes and it increases your chance of audit. great message for the midterm. >> carley: it is easy for republicans to talk about reality of this bill and this report kevin -- what is happening the president is experiencing reprieve from the bad news better than expected jobs number, passing the chips acts, leader of al qaeda gone. i would be talking about that, he will campaign off the
inflation reduction act. one months, two months down the road, when inflation is not fixed, republicans have a message there, you pass this bill and are not delivering. >> todd: does biden want to head out, biden and harris are going, has that worked out well for him? >> carley: not a great messenger. >> todd: his bump this last couple weeks, he was inside with covid. one final points, you come back from vacation and you need a vacation from the vacation? normal people can't do that, joe biden can. biking on the beach, congratulations, joe. >> carley: he will stop in ohio for a ground breaking of a new plant following passage of the

democrats in lock step with mainstream elite media, they are scared about midterm, it is not going their way and they are trying to make this about donald trump, they think this is the winning ticket, we will find there are many americans upset with direction of this country and the media are trying to cover up. >> carley: republicans can separate joe manchin from aoc, is tiffany cross in the majority about how democrats feel about republicans or just her opinion alone? >> i think it is the media's opinion, they think all republicans fit in this camp and that is not the reality. the host talked about abortion, many consider themselves pro choice allow people to have abortion, there should be limits on abortion.
most americans think you should have the right to protect yourself. media are going to extreme position americans are not lining up. ratings are tanking, people are not turning to them for the truth. >> todd: biden has come into his own after the fbi raid of his home. the last thing the white house wanted was event this is month biden came into his own. biden may go down as achieving something like ronald reagan did, but in reverse. does mainstream media have any clue what the mine stream american thinks? i was talking to people this weekend, had a couple days off with the real people and they
are concerned about the fbi raid and about fbi or irs audit, that is all anybody is talking about. >> this columnist wants to point to biden as return to normalcy. americans are concerned about that, it is the one year since botched afghanistan withdrawal, people are concerned about that. biden will tout his legislative victory this month, especially the fact he will be signing inflation reduction act today, the reality, it doesn't match with the fact people are facing high inflation. this is disconnect with what americans are feeling, polling numbers show that people are concerned about the direction of this country. it is out of touch, what this columnist is doing is trying to save face for president biden
and many democrats don't want him to come to their rallies and people don't say whether they would support joe biden if he ran again and i think that is concerning to those in his administration. >> carley: thank you for joining us. >> todd: meteorologist is here. i would come to your rally. >> i bring good news. >> todd: do we have good news? >> i think so, boy, it feels nice, this week continues here next couple days, early this morning, 60'ss, lower 60s, low humidity. one spot we're tracking line of showers in the st. louis area.

is borderline worthless, it doesn't say where the do you wants were located, what was taken. there are different rules for donald trump than anyone else out there. >> brooke: trump claims his passports were seized during the raid. the fbi is not in possession of former president trump's passports, trump's spokesman shared a screen shot on twitter of e-mail sent to trump lawyers by doj's jay bratt saying we have learned that the filter agents seized three passports, two expired and one being his active diplomatic passport, we are returning them. congressman jim jordan chiming in and sharing this cryptic
tweet, preserve your document. the american people deserve transparency from senior law enforcement officials, we will settle for nothing, but complete cooperation. merrick garland deliberated for weeks over whether to approve the affidavit that justified the raid. >> todd: let us bring in acting attorney general matt whitaker. you have been in charge of the doj and filed affidavits in cases, should the doj release the affidavi >> matt: good morning, in a typical case, you wouldn't release the affidavit until charges are filed. in this case, it is different and merrick garland took weeks to decide to execute this search
warrant and one consideration had to have been how it would play with the american people. in this case, this affidavit needs to be released, this investigation has run its course, they obtain document and no further steps can i imagine they will take based on the crimes they allege to be investigating. based on everything, it is time to release this affidavit in abundance for the desire of transparency. >> carley: the fbi says there is increase in threat of violence to agents. former president trump says i will do what i can to help this country, the temperature has to be brought down in this country, if it isn't, terrible things will happen. he said fbi agents
could have planted evidence in his home. how do you feel about the statements? >> matt: the former president is right, the temperature needs to be lowered, threats are not acceptable, political violence is never acceptable. we need a country where rule of law is applied evenly to everyone, no matter ordinary citizen or whether you are donald j. trump. in this case, the department of justice and fbi need to take steps to lower the temperature and a lot is transparency, talking about investigation like this, why for the first time in american history, search warrant executed on a former president of the united states. when that upon has, we will have the temperature lowered.
>> todd:s peter struck is defending the agency, take a listen. >> absolutely the american public should trust the fbi. the fbi is not targeting one side or the other, they are investigating allegations of law. >> todd: this text exchange between truck and lisa page, his lover, page saying trump will never become president, right? struck replied, he won't, we will stop it. peter struck says nothing to see here, your take, matt? >> matt: this is a red herring, he is the guy that led an investigation into the president of the united states when there
was predcasion or evidence that donald trump had a relationship with the russian government. strzok is giving away the goods, there are some at the fbi that believe donald trump is a criminal and they will pursue this case as much as they possibly can and that bias and that desire to get trump no matter what that has colored a lot of six years at the fbi and until they are willing to do work above the board without political influence, we will have trouble like we have now in this case. >> carley: have to wonder how we got here with the fbi, an agency that should be unbiassed. matt whitaker, thank you for joining us.

the country? i think there will be. >> todd: right, they will look at this case, they got $10 million for one hospital system, that is lawyers lawyering, bigger picture, you have been covering stories for two years now, you don't get to eshg eliminate religion because you are scared of a virus. did hospitals not extrapolate out their need for workers? they were willing to eshg eliminate workers and we don't have enough workers to handle sick people that boggles my mind they never saw that, from a legal perspective, religion is the big issue. >> carley: a lot changed when we realized vaccines don't prevent people from getting the disease, you could get sick, you will just get a less revere case,
then why were people losing jobs for failing to protect themselves, that is their own think. then talk about the military and rates of recruitment are down, many say it is because you are required to get the vaccine, we're talking about the healthiest americans in the country wanting to go to the military. interesting situation. >> todd: you understand how business works what message does this send to businesses going forward this settle mentz? >> cheryl: overreaching into personal lives of your people can cost you, i'm assuming there will be more lawsuits to follow, probably already is. i'll bring that to you tomorrow. >> carley: if hospital can successfully get sued in this front, healthcare facility, you

this place for free? >> well, every american taxpayer should be outraged by this. and if we are wondering why we have an invasion inundation at our southern it could be perhaps we are rolling out the red carpeted for illegal immigrants have no right to be here in the first place. this is the opposite of remain in mexico. the whole point of remain in mexico separate those truly it asylum to those want to take advantage of the american taxpayer. those who can afford to stay in swanky times square hotel. talk about the veterans on our streets bridges, freeways, highways, interstates in the united states who don't get this kind of treatment. although i applaud what governor act is doing by busing these illegal immigrants into these sanctuary cities and states, it's going to take inundation in these cities and states to change their policies. not going to be the politicians that change them. certainly not going to be democrat politicians. going to have to be the voters
that realize what an epic problem this is. we simply cannot absorb hundreds of thousands, millions of people into a country that is already struggling. it can't happen any longer. >> carley: tomi, what do you think about dan patrick's comments saying if you are a sanctuary city, you better watch out there, may be a migrant bus coming in your direction. and obviously the goal is, to you know, flood these liberal areas with illegal immigrants the same way that it's getting hit really hard in texas and then maybe those democratic governors could talk to president biden about changing his policies. do you think that's something that could work? >> >> i was hopeful now seeing democrat politicians again rolling out the red carpeted at the expense of the american taxpayer and expense of those in these cities. i don't think it's going to be democrat politicians that are going to change at all until they hear from their voters. and those in blue cities are always fine being liberal and tolerant and loving and welcoming everybody until it is
in their backyard. also note this is a times square hotel. this is where the tourists are again, i think they need to be bussed into areas where these politicians are living and maybe then, maybe then they will change their tune but i'm not going to hold my breath. >> todd: a minneapolis teacher's union implemented a new clause in latest contract which requires white teachers to be fired before minority teachers regardless of seniority. putting aside the fact, tomi, this is literally day one of constitutional law illegal like you can't do this at all. how dangerous is a policy like this? >> it certainly, is what kind of message is the teacher's union sending, what kind of message are woke liberals sending with language and discrimination like this. we should be coming together as a country right now because americans are struggling. shouldn't be differentiating between white and black and having the owe depression will be the discussion. how are we going to come together and make sure everybody has a job. make sure everybody is treated
equally. special treatment and equal treatment aren't the same thing and can't have it both ways. it's illegal and ridiculous. does nothing to teach the younger generation those students what it truly means to be an american. it's about equality. not about woke liberalism like this. >> union's agreement with the city of minneapolis reads, quote: if accepting a teacher who is a member of a population under represented among licensed teachers in the site. the district shall excess, i guess fire the next least senior teacher who is not a member of an under represented population. if you are a white teacher you are going to get fired before a minority teacher even in the minority teacher is performing less successfully than you. that comes to the core of it shouldn't, regardless of race, the best teachers be the ones educating our children? >> oh, absolutely. and, again, i would like to point out because i love pointing out liberal hypocrisy
here. this is from the same group of people that tell us we can't differentiate between men and women but they have no differentiating what they feel somebody who is white and somebody who is not white or someone hough is of color. now do they know what someone's heritage and ethnicity is at the time when you can identify whatever you want, they better be careful what they wish for. they are in for a whole mess of semantics and ridiculous moronic decision like this. >> todd: when you hear something like this, does it make you think that the democrats haven't figured out the economy is going to be huge in november let's not happen what happened in virginia, schools, students, still going to be big going forward. right, tomi? >> it absolutely is identity politics out the window when you have inflation and gas prices the way they are now. you might have some woke liberals that gets them to the polls because they want to be loving and tolerant and they believe this is some form of justice. people are voting with
