6:30 pm
nias joe joins us from chicago joe your book was published. before it was for mission february before the 19 in 1000 penned demick before the killing of george floyd the you called trump a moron a cult a show authoritarian conmen or anathema. i mean ran against a jew think it would be this bad. no i didn't larry and you make a good point i wrote that book before the virus and before the killing obviously of george floyd and in that book i said that trump is on to be president and i said he is unfit because he can't tell the truth and he's incapable of putting the country's interests and force on we're really seeing that play out this year obviously how do you rate his handling of the virus i mean i wish i can
6:31 pm
say what i really want to say in supreme crappy lousy larry i mean what other president any other president in the world would have why the us about a virus has killed any american people i mean think about that for 2 and a half months he didn't prepare or he ignored the intelligence he downplayed it any lied about it to the american people that's all i knew him because larry he didn't give india all he cares about himself. his handling of the u.s. military brass over the handling an issue or did you make of that walk around levy a park and the bible. it goes where it goes in my book he's a wannabe authoritarian he's a wannabe military dictator so look what he did he ordered the military here gassed peaceful protesters so he could take a picture of a bike with a bible he's never read in front of a church he's never been do he wants to be a dictator larry everything about him is that way he likes dictators he doesn't
6:32 pm
like democracy and he doesn't like the republic that we have why do so many people support him. well they don't and let's be honest i've always said this i primary you know and larry i and i realized after bottom are that the republican party is a cult these followers of his it's reared leary he doesn't have true doesn't have supporters he has followers but it is a minority of the american people i think 30 to 35 percent of the american people will support him no matter what but right now if the election is this week joe biden kills him. how to get elected you know he got elected because the republicans 3 reasons the republican party was asleep at the wheel the party establishment ignored their base voters their base voters were screaming to be heard and the party establishment ignored them larry created an opening for
6:33 pm
a demagogue and so along comes true and he said i hear ya i'll build a wall i'll make mexico pay for it even though it was a bunch of bull he listened to them and the rest of the republican party did and then he ran against hillary clinton who was the poster child for the status quo you're a republican right. i left the republican party about 2 months ago because it's just that my republican party. well the republican party is strong right there is no penalty it is it is the trump cult larry it is it's not a party you're right about that and it's all about trump it is it is a party full of people who don't read there are washed donald trump's feet then spread ideas unishe. 2016 voted
6:34 pm
for and 16 again not be because he wasn't hillary period but i made a mistake larry and i've been very honest about it i did not pay enough attention to what a horrible human being he was that sat me i wish i'd paid more attention to him back then. are you now a democrat. no i'm i'm a man without a country look i believe in freedom and limited government in 10 days language that makes me a conservative so i disagree with the democrats on a lot of the policy but this republican party is not a party so i don't have a party i'm doing everything i can larry to help joe biden elected to help get democrats elected because i think larry that these republicans who have been enabled trump they're every bit as bad as trump is. who obviously is supporting biden who are just like him to pick as
6:35 pm
a vice presidential nominee. i think the 2 candidates that would most excite everybody really would be camilla harris and or liz with warren i know there is pressure on mr biden to pick an african-american woman and i understand that but i think elizabeth warren would be a great pick 2 because she would excite she would look i'm working for joe biden that because he excites me because donald trump is an existential threat i think joe biden needs somebody with you know who will excite people. get we've got a book coming out in the room where it happened written by his former national security adviser it's supposed to be scorching what do you hear about. well my my response larry is and again i'll watch my language because i have too
6:36 pm
much respect for you who screwed john bolton and screwed john bolton's book and i hope this book never sees the light of day john bolton's larry just bolton's country called him in january and february and john bolton didn't answer that call he could have testified under oath as to what he knows he knows how unfit donald trump is he knows how many rules and laws donald trump broke but john bolton wouldn't testify because he wanted to sell this damn book screw the book. werman so you've got 2 people completely in the missile. and you're still you rode the tea party wave are you still a tea party or oh yeah but that yeah i get very intense form you would i have talked about this before the tea party movements long gone i mean it was all about the debt and the size of government and once trump became president he increased
6:37 pm
the debt faster than obama did then that's larry that's the dentist thing because all of these republican side who i know like ted cruz and jim jordan they and privately they can't stand trump but they don't call the police say anything about it i don't recognise these guys anymore we screamed about it when obama was president they don't say a thing about the debt with trump as president it's just wrong. we have 2 problems who he's facing 2 of the problems nascar and the n.f.l. both walked away from him on a race issue the n.f.l. almost now saying it's ok to take a knee and i would imagine at the opening game of the n.f.l. season they'll all take me. yeah and nascar has done away with the dixie flag. he has handled the race issue even he would admit poorly has he not he sure has larry and it's hurt him in the polls more than the pandemic yes when you look at
6:38 pm
the polling right now down trumps reaction to the killing of george following the fact that he's he's made us more do business have the fact that he used the military the fact that he he says don't even touch our military bases that are named after confederate soldiers he's like larry he's like a lonely old white guy sit in his room somewhere in the white house and history is just passing him by most even most republicans who larry now support black lives matter and support trying to unite the country over race donald trump is all by himself we're passing them by and he says yes that why hasn't he offered some moral crusade about race he sees what's happening in the country and around the world is it have no empathy. larry i see in my book i've
6:39 pm
never in my life seen a human being like this who is humanly incapable of empathy you've known trouble long time donald trump is incapable of putting anyone or anything ahead of himself all he cares about is himself he doesn't give a damn about what's going on around the country right now and all i mean and so he's incapable of dealing with that and you combine all of that larry with he doesn't care and he's always had a race is spent to him and i really don't think he's a very smart man and so i just don't think he understands what's going on. ok if you lose what happens to the g.o.p. . i think the republican party is dead no matter what i think is gone larry i think the republican party is breaking up before our eyes i think the party is going to be in the wilderness for
6:40 pm
a long long time go back to where i started the i don't troll war because he listened to 80 percent of the republican voters out there now it was a bunch of b.s. he fed them but he listened to them they are still with him and so when trump loses there now with these other never trump i think the party's breaking up and i think it's going to be in the world earnest for a while and hopefully a decent right center right party eventuality will replace. newt gingrich said for him to women he can't be biden on personality can't beat him on stature he'll have to run on a major obvious radical party run against biden as a radical do you see. how pathetic has somebody like newt become again newt out and just retire and not say another word talk about a guy who has sold his soul to charm newt gingrich doesn't believe
6:41 pm
a word he says about trump but he's right larry that'll trump has nothing to run on so he's going to play the old nixon playbook of law and order he's going to try to scare people that's what they do on fox news tucker carlson hannity and war in wrong they do what trump wants them to do and they're trying to scare there are voters into thinking that black people and right nurse and looters are coming after them i don't think fear is going to cut it that's all. joe always great talking to talk to you again before they go action you're the best larry king thank you my friend thank him and we'll be right back with more politicking. no team no crowd. no shots.
6:42 pm
actually the goal to be. struck no difference to the. point should your thirst for action. the people's republic of just a non-conformist utopia horribly clee correct i'll take your pick nonetheless the experiment being played out in seattle is no laughing matter the ideas of law and. the legitimate use of force are at stake a piece of advice go visit jobs before chast visits you. the world is driven by shaped by.
6:43 pm

6:45 pm
up politicking great pleasure to welcome actor and activist kendrick sampson his credits include h.b.o.'s in secure and the vampire diaries he's co-founder of the nonprofit initiative belled power he joins us to talk about his work in the fight for racial justice and against the man of the white house. kendra joins us from los angeles with all of us have been recently kendrick most recently in the atlanta shooting of a black and a bag who is on what what what should a state of mind right now. my state of mind you know especially after hearing about racial groups is that this is not you know this violence is again and it's the same you know i'm i'm disheartened there were 2 black trans women killed this weekend there were 2 men from trees that they're investigating in california black people
6:46 pm
are still being disproportionately affected by cove it and it is a rough time it is a traumatizing time and it's it's compound a trauma from the history of this country and and it's time to end it it's time to in these systems and uproot these systems and build a plant and build new systems that actually care for us i'm encouraged by a lot of wins that are happening of school districts canceling their their contracts with police departments and minneapolis voting city council voting to dismantle their police department in different cities saying you know i think san francisco said that they were not going to use police for nonviolent crimes there there's things that are happening all over the country we just met. black eyes met a los angeles and myself representing bill power just met with the city council here in los angeles to give a special presentation on reimagining public safety and defunding the police and
6:47 pm
they heard us and they understood us and they stand with the same ideologies now we need them to take action but but i'm encouraged by what the movement but at the same time i'm still you know working through my own trauma and and what's what we're seeing if the police are an extension of us are we still a racist country. oh yeah yeah the foundation of this country is slavery and genocide it's an extra couple from the systems that were built up around like slavery the policing system was built and formed from police i mean from slave catching you know the. prison system is and jail system is the continuation of slavery under the guise of the 13th amendment. capitalism is inextricable from anti blackness and and slave made of people and and. seen
6:48 pm
people as property because of the color of their skin and so yeah absolutely this system this system that we have the white supremacy is that we have in the white house. is a symptom of the culture that has been built here in the systems that are built you are inherently racist so absolute how do you know that how can regain explained that the killing of george floyd has caused a much greater a bringing in the part of the world than even the killing of martin luther king what's different now. i think george floyd was like the straw that broke the camel's back you had briana taylor you add reed you had to land ok still before that sandra bland and countless others to me are rice and 609 here and last can't los angeles county alone with your sorry own back in so many right i can go i we could spend this whole interview and be listing the amount
6:49 pm
of people who have been killed by police because it's still operate operates as a slave catching system to put slaves back into the prison system right and so i you know people are fed up it's an unprecedented health crisis unprecedented unemployment unprecedented economic crisis and on top of that we still have to deal with racism and these systems that are brutalizing us before joyce floyd you saw people being brutalized by police for not wearing a mask you saw people being profiled black people being profiled for wearing masks so we damned if we do damned if we don't you know and i think we're at a point where people are in their homes and imagining solutions imagining better because they have no choice because they are in dire situations right now and they are saying we cannot go back to the world we knew and they are fed up because we are going to be we are going to face violence and brutality from these systems
6:50 pm
regardless of if we leave our houses or not. even stuck in our homes we are still being you know facing system that prioritizes health care system that prioritizes profit over people that is violence and so people are fed up with the violence and they're done with it and you have somebody who's encouraging it in the white house so we're not going back is what i think we're and unprecedented situation where people are saying absolutely not we are not we cannot go back the world we knew is done and we're going to better you're an advocate of defunding the police congress . james clyburn one of the true civil rights leaders said he does not support calling to defund the police rather than saying restructuring law enforcement is a better title do you agree we don't have to agree you know angela davis who is a who is abolitionists and my president you know would agree in
6:51 pm
that this systems have to end you know that the that oppressive systems are bad seeds if a bad seed bears a bad tree bears bad fruit good seed produces a good tree produces good food that's what we say in church that is true the system is a it was born from a bad seed of slave catching it is not something that can be retained around the edges with and reform one day people have been trying to reform policing for decades it hasn't worked because it's the same system that we've had for centuries we need a new system if we can imagine better than this system we don't have no imagination we have such a low bar we can't have an armed not on law enforcement 1st responders we can have mental health care infrastructure this is 100000000000 dollars we're talking over $10015000000000.00 that we spent on police departments alone not talking about sheriff's departments and such i'm talking about police departments along right and
6:52 pm
that money could be invested in communities for preventative measures violence intervention programs actually funding our schools and having afterschool programs and counselors and nurses in our schools why do we have police officers who are armed in dangerous who make us less safe in our schools and and many schools you have a huge police presence and no counselors nobody to deal with the trauma nobody to deal no darcis no idea what to help them so they we can have these systems we can actually take care of the root causes but we are as a country deciding to end best and violent systems that are oppressive and have been proven to be oppressive instead of actually investing in care and healing and wellness of our community what is what is build our. bill power is a nonprofit initiative did out was formed with myself and tio sean michael archer to organize hollywood around these issues to to create safe spaces where we can
6:53 pm
imagine different where we can connect with organized how oppressive hollywood is i mean how would a has has added and aided this oppression police brutality and glorifying police violence and and producing anti-black storylines for a very long time and criminalizing and demonizing us and our mental health for trying mental health is violent and such right. and we have to be a part of the solution and there are so many people that are they want to be a part of the solution they have these huge platforms that are creatives that can direct and produce and write and act in films and create a new world and we have an responsibility to imagine different and act on that we influence culture politics so we wanted to organize hollywood around that to make being a part of the solution those little i do a shot with a rubber bullet. a traumatising. while i was sat 7 times with rubber
6:54 pm
bullets so i've had i had chunks of skin taken out to me i don't want to gross anybody out but like just a few days ago was the 1st time i was able this was a couple weeks ago that it happened to get the skin from hanging off my leg and i mean it takes the wind out of you i still have a permanent scar right here where they shot me in my chest my arm was swollen for why were they stopped me in my arm and they shot me 5 times in my leg and my buddy had 2 bones broken in his my body being on had 2 groans broken and his skull my assistant was beat with batons and had his shins bullet open. to where you could see his bone he had to get stitches just got him out 2 days ago so so it is it is absolutely traumatizing what drove me forward was everybody was experiencing. the same brutality that were out there peacefully demonstrating and i don't condemn anybody who's not being peaceful because these systems are so violent i don't understand why you wouldn't expect violence right but the fact is that we were
6:55 pm
peaceful right that's just a fact right and and we were met with violence only from the l.a.p.d. did they were the instigators and to do that and then go to the city council right now when we presented to city council it very historic you know black lives matter being invited to do a special presentation on reimagining public safety and and the people that greeted us was a police officer escorted us in and a police officer was used to give to stand there and take our temperature before we went into the chamber why aren't you why why you have staff you have medical professionals it is just another example of a waste of money that could be invested in something that actually is healing to us . can do about it what do you make of our president. i think he's trash i think he's trash human being i think he is a white supremacist he has been very blatant about showing it and i want to
6:56 pm
encourage people that our ancestors didn't ever win by working within systems that were built to oppress they were built for injustice right and so we have to think about what many countries have done when a leader is fascist and oppressive blatantly oppressive and ill equipped to handle any sort of leadership and i have a lot of curse words that i want to add in there but my best to be respected but i but i think he is a tracks human being and there's no leadership quality in him and we need to think about how to work around the system outside of these systems in order to remove him from office not impeachment in these system the. methods that they've instituted and tell us the parameters that they have set for us to achieve justice because we're not going to achieve it in those systems make sure that he's not an
6:57 pm
option by november he should be an option that is democracy choosing between him and another candidate any other candidate is not them i think kendrick thanks for your time today always great seeing you you as well thank you and thank you audience for joining me on this edition of politicking remember you can join the conversation on my facebook page or tweet me at kings things and don't forget to use the politicking hash tag and that's all for this edition of politicking. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest on the world of politics small business i'm show business i'll see that. the take away then from this. where it's
