Hillary Clinton is a ‘tired brand’: GOP Fundraiser


OBVIOUSLY I COULD BEAT HIM AGAIN. NEIL: OH, NO SHE DIDN’T. BEAT HIM AGAIN, REFERRING TO THE POPULAR VOTE. BUT HILLARY CLINTON FOLLOWING UP ON THAT TWEET A COUPLE DAYS BACK, WHEN SHE SAID DON’T TEMPT ME. I THINK, I THINK THAT WOULD MAKE FOR — SHE’S SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING IT.>>OH, MY GOSH. I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO HEAR YOU SAY THAT AGAIN. THAT WAS AWESOME. YOU KNOW, THE THING THAT I’M LOOKING AT, AND I ALWAYS COME BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT I’M GOOD AT AND THAT’S THE MONEY IN POLITICS. FIRST THING IS, WHO CARES IF SHE DOES OR SHE DOESN’T BUT IF SHE DOES, WHERE IS SHE GOING TO GET THE MONEY? BECAUSE ALL THE MAJOR DONORS ARE ALL SPREAD OUT WITH ALL THESE CANDIDATES. THEY’RE NOT GOING TO LEAVE THEIR POST AND COME SUPPORT A CANDIDATE THAT DIDN’T FARE WELL AGAINST TRUMP IN THE FIRST PLACE. SO THEY’RE SURE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE FUND AND IF SHE DOESN’T HAVE A WAR CHEST TO PUT HER MESSAGE OUT AND REVAMP HER BRAND, THEN SHE’S TOAST. NEIL: WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>SHE’S NOT RUNNING. SHE’S NOT RUNNING. NEIL: DID YOU SAY SHE’S NOT RUNNING?>>SHE SHOULDN’T HAVE RUN LAST TIME. IF THE DEMOCRATS ARE THAT STUPID TO GIVE HER ANY BIT OF AN OPENING, TO POKE HER HEAD INTO THIS, IT WOULD BE THE DUMBEST MOVE AND IT WOULD SET THE DEMOCRATS BACK BEYOND WHERE THEY ARE TODAY. NEIL: HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON RUNNING? JOHN, YOU KNOW, SHE COULD MAKE AN ARGUMENT, LOOK, SANDERS IS IN DISARRAY SINCE THE HEART ATTACK, ELIZABETH WARREN SAYS, CAUGHT SAYING STUPID THINGS, SHE COULD IMPLODE. SHE’S LOOKING AT THE FIELD AND SAYING YOU KNOW WHAT, FOR A PARTY THAT COULD GO HARD LEFT, I’M NOT QUITE IN THAT CRAZY CAMP AND JOE BIDEN, HE’S A DISASTER ROLLING OUT. WHAT DO YOU THINK?>>ABSOLUTELY. SHE’S GOT NINE LIVES AND WHAT HAS SHE FWO HAS SHE GOO HAS SHE GOT GOING FOR HER THIS TIME? SHE IS FOR ONCE NOT OVEREXPOSED. SHE IS THE CLEAN CANDIDATE. THEY ARE EMBARRASSING THEMSELVES NATIONALLY RIGHT NOW. NEIL: SHE CAN DO IT. CLEAN CANDIDATE.>>SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE HARD LEFT PAPER TRAIL. SHE’S GOT SERIOUS WALL STREET BACKING. SHE COULD COME IN AS THE NORMAL ONE. NEIL: YOU THINK SHE’S DAMAGED GOODS?>>SHE’S SO DAMAGED, BEEN THERE, DONE THAT. THE DEMOCRATS WOULD RATHER GO WITH A YOUNGER UP-AND-COMING INDIVIDUAL — NEIL: IN THIS CROWD, YOU ARE YOUNG AND UP-AND-COMING IF YOU’RE 70. NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.>>THERE’S CORY BOOKER, THERE ARE A HOST OF OTHERS. BUT THEY NEED TO GO BACKWARDS BEFORE THEY GO FORWARDS. NEIL: WHO HAS A BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING, ELIZABETH WARREN OR HILLARY CLINTON?>>I THINK WARREN. NEIL: REALLY?>>I THINK THE PRESIDENT WOULD RATHER SEE WARREN BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY, IT CREATES THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF IDEOLOGY AND THEN YOU WOULD HAVE THE INDEPENDENTS UNAFFILIATED AND THE REST HAVING TO MAKE REALLY TOUGH CHOICES WHICH WOULDN’T REALLY BE THAT TOUGH AND THEY WOULD LEAN TOWARDS TRUMP AT THAT POINT. NEIL: YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT COULD BEAT EITHER?>>DEMOCRATS WOULD BE MORE ENTHUSIASTIC WITH WARREN. THAT’S WHAT COUNTS. NEIL: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT? THE PASSION WOULD BE WITH WARREN, NOT HILLARY CLINTON? IF IT CAME TO THAT.>>I THINK EITHER ONE POINT TO A TRUMP VICTORY, IF YOU HAVE EITHER ONE OF THE WOMEN, FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. HILLARY IS A TIRED BRAND AND NOT A TRUSTED BRAND. THEN YOU’VE GOT ELIZABETH WARREN, WHO HAS GOT POLICIES THAT ARE NOT FRIENDLY TO WALL STREET. BACK TO YOUR POINT ON THE ECONOMY, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ECONOMY, THAT PUTS HER IN A HORRIBLE POSITION AND PUTS TRUMP, LIKE IT OR NOT, BACK IN A KEY POSITION. NEIL: THE PRESIDENT TRAILS IN ALL THE STATES, IN FACT BY DOUBLE DIGITS, THAT HE WON, THAT GAVE HIM THE ELECTORAL VOTES. THAT COULD CHANGE.>>BUT I THINK THAT IS THE BIDEN EFFECT. BECAUSE BIDEN CAN APPEAL TO THOSE BLUE COLLAR WORKERS MUCH AS WHERE — NEIL: WHERE ELIZABETH WARREN OR HILLARY CLINTON –>>I DON’T THINK THAT THEY CAN HAVE TOO MUCH CONNECTABILITY. A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH JOB CREATION.>>BIDEN IS A DEAD MAN WALKING RIGHT NOW.>>I DON’T KNOW.>>I DON’T THINK HE CAN BE RESUSCITATED. HE WAS THE PERSON, POLLS WERE SHOWING, THAT COULD BEAT TRUMP. TRUMP WAS CLEARLY CONCERNED. AND — BUT WITH HIM OUT OF IT, I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANYBODY INCLUDING HILLARY THAT WILL TOUCH TRUMP IN THE NEXT ELECTION, BECAUSE IF YOU WANT TO UNDERESTIMATE DONALD TRUMP, JUST TURN YOUR DIAL BACK, YOUR CLOCK BACK TO 2016. HE DESTROYED 16 OTHER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES. NEIL: WE’LL SEE. FINAL WORD. BRAD, THANK YOU.
