trump, isn't it? >> oh, sure. it goes all the way back to the days of birtherism. remember? barack obama was born somewhere in africa. how about the 30,000 muslims that celebrated 9/11. mexicans being rapists and murderers. we can go on and on. and this is vintage trump. and in a way it's kind of nor l normalizing his presidency and it's something that we just have come to almost accept as being part of him. and that in itself is a statement about him and the country. >> well, and also we heard say republicans are really being completely silent about this. it's almost as if he continues to escalate and they continue to be silent. >> you know, particularly in congress, if you think about it, they have much more to lose than they have to win. remember, this is a president that has given them conservative justices. this is the president that has the great big tax change that reduced taxes. this is a president that has rolled back over 200 regulatory bills and laws. these are things that are just part and parcel, part of the republican brand, and so they look at him, they say, well,

6:34 pm
>> absolutely. and the question is is this a one of, stha president who's just going to do this this time, encourage people to go out and speak as they do or will the country go back to normal when the president is replaced by another? that's the big question that we have a couple or maybe six years to find out. >> okay. thank you very much, larry. among the notable names speaking out is warriors coach steve kerr. kerr took to twitter urging members of congress to call out the president for lashing out at the four freshman congresswomen. as you know, kerr has been a vocal critic of the president. warriors have skipped the traditional white house visit after winning their past two nba championships. the immigration raids remain a primary concern rds actually place, the president is calling them a success. he insists the numbers or documentation. a senior official tells nbc news only a targeted immigrants were
