The Brody File: January 5, 2017 – Happy New Year Liberals!


*>> David: AND WELCOME TO ANOTHER EDITION OF “THE BRODY FILE.” GLAD YOU’RE WITH US. HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2017. HEY, LIBERALS, 2016 NOT A GOOD YEAR. WHY? RIGHT, DONALD TRUMP WON THE PRESIDENCY. 2017, OR RE SORRY, PROBABLY GOING TO BE WORSE BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP WILL BE PRESIDENT JANUARY 20th. LOTS TO DISCUSS ABOUT HIS FIRST HUNDRED DAYS, AND WE’LL GET TO ALL OF THAT. AND WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE POMP AND CIRCUMSTANCE OF THE ACTUAL PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION, WHAT BANDS ARE GOING TO BE AT THE INAUGURATION. ALL OF THE IMPORTANT STUFF, RIGHT? ACTUALLY, WE HAD A CHANCE TO TALK WITH SOMEONE ON THAT PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION COMMITTEE RIGHT HERE IN D.C., HAVE A LOOK. JOINING US NOW IS ALEX SHERMAN, A DEPUTY COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION COMMITTEE — DID I GET THAT RIGHT?>>THAT’S RIGHT. THANKS FOR HAVING ME.>> David: TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT WE’RE GOING TO SEE IN THESE THREE KEY DAYS, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY. TAKE ME THROUGH SOME OF THIS.>>STARTING WITH ESPECIALLY THE PUBLIC EVENTS. WE’LL START OFF ON THURSDAY MORNING AND END SOME TIME MID-SATURDAY AFTERNOON. ONE OF THE KEY TAKE-AWAYS THAT WE HAVE AS AN ORGANIZATION IS THE CHARGE FROM THE PRESIDENT-ELECT. AND HIS CHARGE IS TO MAKE THIS ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IT IS SOMETIMES SEEN AS A TYPE OF CORONATION. OR AN ENTERTAINER-BACKED CELEBRATION. THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS IS ABOUT. NUMBER ONE, WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS READY TO GET TO WORK. HE WANTS TO DO AWAY WITH SOME OF THE WAYS OF WASHINGTON AND BRING IN A NEW ERA FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE CARRIER DEAL AND THE MEXIC FORD DEAL.>> David: TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT WE’RE GOING TO SEE ON THURSDAY. THURSDAY, WHAT KIND OF LEAD-UP DO WE HAVE?>>THURSDAY IS WHEN THE PRESIDENT-ELECT WILL ARRIVE IN WASHINGTON, D.C. FOR THE FIRST TIME. HE’LL START OFF HIS PUBLIC WAY AT ARLINGTON CEMETERY. TO SHOW THAT HIS FIRST COMMITMENT IN WASHINGTON AS PRESIDENT-ELECT AND LIVING UP TO THE INAUGURAL CEREMONY IS TO THANK THE SERVICE OF THOSE WHO HAVE COME BEFORE US. FROM THERE HE’LL MOVE TO A PRE-CONCERT. THIS IS THE VOICE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. A CHANCE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO REALLY SHOW THEIR TALENTS AND SHOW WIFTHEREAL PEOPLE ASPECT. AND AFTER THAT WE’LL HAVE A WELCOME CELEBRATION, FEATURING SOME ENTERTAINMENT ACTS, BUT ALSO SOME OF THE MILITARY ASPECTS AS WELL. OUR MILITARY BANDS. TO REALLY JUST KIND OF KICK OFF THIS INAUGURAL WEEK. THAT WILL END THE EVENTS ON THURSDAY NIGHT.>> David: TELL ME ABOUT THE BIG DAY ON FRIDAY.>>THIS PRESIDENT-ELECT, HONORING THE TRADITIONS OF THE PAST. YOU’LL SEE ON THURSDAY MORNING, THE PRESIDENT AND HIS FAMILY WILL START OFF WITH A PRIVATE CHURCH SERVICE AT ST. JOHN’S CHURCH. IT DATES BACK TO F.D.R. BUT EVERY PRESIDENT SINCE MADISON HAS WORSHIPPED THERE AT THE CHURCH. IT SHOWS HIS COMMITMENT TO THE FAITH ASPECT. AND THE IMPORTANCE THIS IS GOING TO PLAY IN HIS INAUGURAL CEREMONY. AND THEN FROM THERE HE’LL — HE’LL BE INVITED TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO HAVE COFFEE WITH THE FIRST FAMILY. AND THEN HE WILL PROCEED TO THE CAPITAL WHERE HE’LL BE SWORN IN. AND AT THAT POINT FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MRS. OBAMA WILL DEPART WASHINGTON. AND HE’LL HAVE A LUNCHEON THERE THAT IS PUT ON BY THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE HONORING THE NEW PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT TRUMP. FROM THERE HE’LL START THE INAUGURAL PARADE. AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT IS HONORING THE TRADITION OF THE PAST. BUT IT IS SOMETHING YOU’RE GOING TO SEE SHORTENED. PRESIDENT EISENHOWER HAD A PARADE THAT LASTED ALMOST FIVE HOURS LONG. THIS PARADE WILL BE SHORTER THAN PREVIOUS YEARS. IT WILL BE AN HOUR, AN HOUR AND A HALF. IT IS SHOWING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT’S COMMITMENT TO GETTING TO WORK. HE WANTS TO GET TO WORK WITH EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND SIGNING PIECES OF LEGISLATION ON HIS DESK. AND FOLLOWING THROUGH ON THAT COMMITMENT TO CHANGE WASHINGTON.>> David: AND FINALLY ON SATURDAY, VERY IMPORTANT, ESPECIALLY FOR OUR FAITH AUDIENCE HERE, ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON SATURDAY.>>WE HAVE A PRAYER SERVICE, A TRADITION THAT HAS OCCURRED IN PREVIOUS INAUGURALS. AND YOU’LL SEE MULTI-FAITHS REPRESENTED. AND A COMMITMENT TO THIS IDEA OF HAVING A HIGHER POWER AND RELYING ON THAT AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND SEEKING THAT COUNSEL. SO WHETHER IT IS WITH THE FIRST PRAYER SERVICE, STARTING HIS DAY OFF, THE INAUGURATION, WITH HIS PRIVATE PRAYER SERVICE OR THE SATURDAY MORNING PRAYER SERVICE, SHOWING THAT THIS PRESIDENT IS GOING TO BE SOMEONE WHO RELIES ON THE FAITH COMMUNITY. HE DID THROUGHOUT HIS ELECTION AND WILL AS PRESIDENT AS WELL. AND THE CEREMONY ITSELF, FOR THE FIRST TIME WE’LL HAVE MORE PARTICIPATION FROM FAITH LEADERS IN THE INAUGURAL CEREMONY ITSELF THAN EVER BEFORE.>> David: A LOT OF STUFF GOING DOWN ON JANUARY 20th. POST-JANUARY 20th, A LOT OF POLICY STUFF WILL BE GOING DOWN. OBAMACARE CLEARLY ON TOP OF ALL OF THE LISTS. MORE ON THAT LATER IN THE SHOW. SPEAKING OF OBAMACARE, WHAT WILL BE TIED TO THAT IS THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD FUNDING, OR AT LEAST THE DEFUNDING THAT PRO-LIFE GROUPS WANT TO SEE A PRESIDENT TRUMP DO PRONTO. WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK WITH LEILA ROSE, THE C.E.O. OF LIVE ACTION, WHO WILL BE IN THE THICK OF THINGS WHEN IT COMES TO THIS PRO-LIFE FIGHT. WITHIN AND PART OF THAT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. HAVE A LOOK AT OUR INTERVIEW. LEILA ROSE HERE, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF “LIVE ACTION.” HELLO, LEILA.>>HI, DAVID. HOW ARE YOU?>> David: WE’RE GOOD FRIENDS, ARE WE NOT?>>YES.>> David: LET ME GET YOUR TAKE ON THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THEY’RE COMING IN — ARE YOU HOPEFUL? WHERE ARE YOU ON THE ONE TO 10-METER WITH TRUMP?>>I THINK WHEN IT COMES TO LIFE, WE COULD HAVE THE 10, A CLEAR PATH TO COMPLETE REDIRECTION OF THE GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF TAXPAYER MONEY AWAY FROM THE BIGGEST ABORTION PROVIDER. PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS KILLING OVER 320,000 KIDS A YEAR. THEY’RE GETTING OVER $500 MILLION A YEAR. THE FACT THAT TRUMP HAS SAID HE WOULD DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AND WE HAVE THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE WITH STAUNCH PRO-LIFE LEADERS, IT IS POSSIBLE NOW AND THE JOB NEEDS TO BE DONE.>> David: HOW HEAVY OF A LIFT IS THIS GOING TO BE? OR IS IT A LITTLE EASIER THAN PEOPLE THINK? NOT TO GET INTO THE BUDGET RECONCILIATION, BUT THERE IS A PATH HERE, RIGHT?>>ABSOLUTELY. THE PATH IS TOTALLY THAT. WE HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE — ACTUALLY LAST YEAR THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE PASSED A RECONCILIATION SPENDING BILL, THAT GOT TO PRESIDENT OBAMA’S DESK THAT DIDN’T INCLUDE 80% OF FUNDING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD. THAT WAS HUGE. IT WOULD HAVE DEFUNDED THEM $400 MILLION PLUS. AND THEY NEED TO DO THAT AGAIN. SO THE PATH IS MORE CLEAR THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN. THERE IS NO REASON THEY CAN’T DO IT, DAVID. TRUMP CAMPAIGNED ON IT. MANY OF THE FOLKS IN THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE CAMPAIGNED ON IT. IT IS SOMETHING THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT SO BADLY BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT TAXPAYER FUNDING GOING TOWARDS ABORTION. THE FIGHT IS GOING TO BE, I BELIEVE, IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION AND EDUCATING AMERICANS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING.>> David: NUMEROUS EDUCATION BECAUSE INFORMATION IS KEY TO ALL OF THIS. AND WHAT IS THE TRUMP STAFF, IF YOU WILL, NEED TO UNDERSTAND? WHAT IS THE ONE OR TWO KEY INGREDIENTS OF INFORMATION THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND TO MAKE SURE THIS CAN BE WON IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION?>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. I THINK SH O SOME OF THE FOLKS SURROUNDING TRUMP ALREADY GET IT. KELLYANNE CONWAY GETS IT, AND MIKE PENCE GETS IT ON ABORTION. AMERICANS DON’T SIT RIGHT WITH ABORTION. EXPLAIN WHAT THE ABORTION PROCEDURE ACTUALLY DOES TO THE CHILD. EXPLAIN HOW IT IS AGAINST THE WOMAN. AND TOP, CANDID DISCUSSIONS ABOUT THE EXTREMISM OF GROUPS LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD, AS HILLARY CLINTON WAS EXTREME ON ABORTION, BILLY RAY SMITABORTION,ABORTION THROUGH ALL NINE MONTHS. THE TOBACCO INDUSTRY SAID TOBACCO WAS HEALTHY. PLANNED PARENTHOOD PROVIDES LESS THAN 2% OF CANCER SCREENINGS AND PAP SMEARS FOR WOMEN. THEY ARE FOCUSED ON ABORTION, AND THAT NEEDS TO GET OUT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.>> David: TALK A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE COMING IN JANUARY. YOU GUYS HAVE THESE COMPAIGNS THAT ARE LIKE — TALK ABOUT TENS OF MILLIONS OF HITS. TELL ME ABOUT THIS NEW ONE.>>LIVE ACTION IS GEARING UP TO GO INTO THAT COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION AND TO TEACH WHAT A PLANNED PARENTHOOD ACTUALLY IS AND WHAT THEY DO. WE HAVE A MINI DOCU SERIES WILL BE SHOWING, THAT WILL EXPOSING UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATIVE FOOTAGE, EXPOSING THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS FOCUSED MYOPICLY ON ABORTION, KILLING CHILDREN, TELLING WOMEN THAT THIS IS THE BEST PATH. THEY’RE STRAIGHT UP LYING TO THE AMERICAN WOMEN ABOUT PROVIDING OPTIONS, PRENATAL CARE, ABOUT PROVIDING OTHER SERVICES. AND THEIR COATING OR SHIELDING THEIR CORPORATION WITH THESE LIES. THEY’RE NOT ABOUT HEALTH. THEY’RE ABOUT ABORTION.>> David: ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME BACK, IT’S THE “B” BLOCK. JENNY IS TALKING ABOUT PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS OVERSEAS IN TURKEY. BACK IN A MOMENT.>> David: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY, TO THE BRODY FILE. BY THE WAY, A NEW REPORT OUT SHOWING THAT CHRISTIANS ARE THE MOST PERSECUTED RELIGIOUS GROUP IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. AND REALLY IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE. WE SEE STORIES OF RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION OF CHRISTIANS ALL OVER THE GLOBE IN THIS WORLD. ONE OF THOSE PLACES IS TURKEY AND JENNIFER WISHON, HERE IN THE “B” BLOCK, HAS THAT STORY OF PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS IN TURKEY, UP AGAINST IT.>>Jennifer: IN TURKEY, AMERICAN PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON SITS IN PRISON, FACING TRUMPED UP CHARGES OF TERRORISM.>>SO TODAY I WOULD ARGUE THAT TURKEY — PARTICULARLY TURKEY’S CHRISTIANS AND JEWS ARE GOING THROUGH A VERY DIFFICULT PERIOD.>>Jennifer: DR. ADAMIR IS A MUSLIM TURK WHO HAS DEDICATED HIS CAREER TO HELPING CHRISTIANS, JEWS, AND OTHER RELIGIOUS MINORITIES GAINFUL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN HIS COUNTRY. HE FACED ROAD BLOCKS. NOW HE ADVOCATES FROM WASHINGTON, D.C., WORKING WITH THE FOUNDATION FOR THE DEFENSE OF DEMOCRACY.>>I THINK CHRISTIANS HAVE LEARNED TO LIVE UNDER CONSTANT THREAT OF PHYSICAL OR SYMBOLIC VIOLENCE. THEY’RE USED TO CONSTANT MESSAGES OF HATE. THEY’RE USED TO TURKEY’S CULTURE OF IMPUNITY. MEANING THEY KNOW THAT THERE WILL BE LENIENT SENTENCING TO THE ASSAILANTS.>>Jennifer: AND THINGS GOT WORSE LAST SUMMER AFTER A COUP ATTEMPTED TO TOPPLE ERDOGAN. SINCE THE COUP, IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE.>>WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT TURKEY, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BASICALLY THE BIBLICAL LANDS. THIS IS THE COUNTRY THAT HOSTS A LOT OF THE JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN SITES. SO THERE IS A VERY RICH HERITAGE, AND IT IS SO SAD TO SEE HOW TURKEY’S ISLAMISTS NOT ONLY MARGINALIZE THEM BUT PORTRAY THEM AS BEING FOREIGN.>>Jennifer: HE FEARS OTHER PROTESTANT PASTORS AND MISSIONARIES COULD BE FRAMED BY SECURITY FORCES, LIKE PASTOR BRUNSON. AND FOLLOWING THE COUP, IT IS HARD TO FIND TURKS WILLING TO SPEAK OUT FOR THEIR CHRISTIAN NEIGHBORS.>>THE MAJORITY OF CITIZENS ARE AFRAID TO TALK. BECAUSE SINCE JULY 15th, HUNDREDS — 10,000 CIVIL SERVANTS HAVE BEEN FIRED FROM THEIR JOBS. 30,000 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ARRESTED. HUNDREDS OF NEWS OUTLETS, INCLUDING NEWSPAPERS, MAGAZINES, TV, AND RADIO STATIONS, HAVE BEEN CLOSED.>>Jennifer: IT IS AN ISSUE PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP WILL HAVE TO CONFRONT. AS ADAMIR AND OTHERS FEAR AMERICA’S NATO ALLY INCREASING RESEMBLES AN AUTHORITARIAN REGIME. JENNIFER WISHON FOR “THE BRODY FILE.”>> David: ALL RIGHT. WHEN WE COME BACK, OBAMACARE, FRONT AND CENTER WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN? HOW CAN THEY GO ABOUT REPEALING AND REPLACING THIS THING? ANSWERS FROM AMBER C. STRONG WHEN WE COME BACK.>> David: AND WELCOME BACK TO “THE BRODY FILE.” TIME TO TALK ABOUT OBAMACARE. SORRY, LIBERALS, IT IS GOING AWAY. NOW, THE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU, LIBERALS, IS THAT IT WILL GO AWAY SLOWLY. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO REPEAL THIS THING RIGHT AWAY ALL TOGETHER. BUT, UNFORTUNATELY FOR YOU, LIBERALS, IT IS GOING AWAY. GUARANTEED. MORE ON THAT FROM AMBER C. STRONG.>>Reporter: THE RESULTS ARE IN AND IT IS A BIG WIN FOR OBAMACARE, AS LEAST WHEN IT COMES TO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE SEEKING COVERAGE.>>President Obama: IF YOU’RE NOT COVERED YET, NOW IS THE TIME TO SIGN UP.>>Reporter: 6.4 MILLION AMERICANS SIGNED UP FOR THE HEALTH CARE CHANGE IN 2017. THAT IS UP 400,000 FROM THIS TIME LAST YEAR. IT IS A MAD DASH FOR COVERAGE BEFORE A REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP TAKE OFFICE. A NEW ADMINISTRATION COULD SPELL A BIG LOSS FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SIGNATURE HEALTH CARE BILL. MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HOPE TO PASS A BUDGET IN JANUARY THAT COULD ALLOW THEM TO QUICKLY APPEAL THE ACT. THE SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, HEBI TROY, TELL CBN NEWS IT WON’T BE AS EASY AS MOST PEOPLE THINK.>>WE’RE NOT SURE WE CAN REPEAL THE WHOLE THING. IF THEY DO SO, THEY RECOGNIZE THERE ARE NOT 60 REPUBLICAN VOTES IN THE SENATE. SO THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO SOMETHING CALLED RECONCILIATION, WHICH IS A BUDGETARY MECHANISM THAT LET’S YOU PASS SOMETHING WITH ONLY 51 VOTES IN THE SENATE, BUT IT LIMITS WHAT YOU CAN DO. THEY CAN’T DO A BILL THAT SAYS WE HEREBY REPEAL EVERY PART OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.>>Reporter: TROY ENCOURAGES THEM TO TAKE A DIFFERENT PATH THAN PUSHING THROUGH ONE BIG BILL. HE SUGGESTS THEY COME UP WITH HEALTH REFORMS THAT MAKE INSURANCE CHEAPER AND EASIER TO PURCHASE.>>THEY WILL HAVE TO TARGET WHATEVER REFORM OR REPLACEMENT THEY DO TO MAKE SURE THOSE 20 MILLION PEOPLE ARE NOT DISRUPTED AND CAN GET SOME CARE.>>Reporter: AND ANOTHER TARGET COULD BE DEFUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD. LAST GO AROUND, CONGRESS PUSHED TO CUT MEDICAID MONEY TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. FOR NOW, THAT STILL APPEARS TO BE THE PLAN.>>WE HAVE ALREADY SHOWN WHAT WE BELIEVE WITH RESPECT TO FUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD. WE PUT A BILL ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S DESK AND OUR POSITION DID NOT CHANGE.>>Reporter: PRESIDENT OBAMA VETOED THAT BILL, BUT A NEW PRESIDENT TRUMP IS COMING TO TOWN AND PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES HOPE TO GAIN GROUND. LAST YEAR THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE PASSED A RECONCILIATION SPENDING BILL THAT GOT TO PRESIDENT OBAMA’S DESK THAT DIDN’T INCLUDE 80% OF FUNDING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD. THAT WOULD HAVE DEFUNDED THEM $400 MILLION PLUS. AND THEY NEED TO DO THAT AGAIN. THE PATH IS MORE CLEAR THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN.>>Reporter: WHAT ELSE IS ON SPEAKER RYAN’S WISH LIST? FIXING A BROKEN TAX CODE, AND GETTING RID OF GOVERNMENT OVERREACH, ARE PRIORITIES.>> David: AMBER C. STRONG HERE ON “THE BRODY FILE.” WHEN WE COME BACK, DR. BEN CARSON IS GOING TO PART OF TRUMP’S CABINET, HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY. WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT? ANSWERS FROM SOMEONE WHO>> David: AND WELCOME BACK TO, EVERYBODY, TO “THE BRODY FILE”.>>>HEY, BEN CARSON, NOMINATED BY DONALD TRUMP TO BE HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY, OR THE SECRETARY OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT — HOWEVER YOU WANT TO SAY IT. A LOT OF FOLKS THOUGHT HE MIGHT GET THE HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SLOT, BUT HE DIDN’T. WHEN IT COMES TO HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT, HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, TWO CRUCIAL PARTS OF THE STRUCTURE WITHIN MANY URBAN COMMUNITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY. AND DR. CARSON WILL PROBABLPROBABLY DO A GOOD JOB. BUT DON’T TAKE MY WORD. WE DISCUSS THAT WITH, GUESS WHO, AMBER C. STRONG. HAVE A LOOK.>>THE RUMOR IS THAT DR. CARSON WAS OFFERED SEVERAL POSITIONS, BUT HE CHOICE HUD, WHY?>>I KNOW HE WANTED TO BE IN HUD. THEY SAY SURGEON GENERAL WOULD MATCH HIM BETTER BECAUSE OF HIS GREAT EXPERIENCES IN THOSE AREAS, BUT HUD IS GROUND ZERO FOR SOLVING ISSUES OF POVERTY IN OUR NATION. WE’VE BEEN FIGHTING THIS WAR ON POVERTY FOR 50 YEARS, AND WE’RE LOSING. AND DR. CARSON AND HIS WIFE CANDY HAVE DONE A LOT OF WORK TO EMPOWER AND INCREASE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE AND TO SERVE COMMUNITIES. I THINK HE REALLY HAS A HEART FOR THIS ISSUE. AND HE IS A RESULTS-DRIVEN, OUTCOME-DRIVEN SOLUTIONIST, AND THAT’S WHAT WE NEED. WE DON’T NEED POLITICIANS. WE DON’T NEED THE CONSULTANT CLASS. WE DON’T NEED PEOPLE WHO ARE INVESTED IN IDEOLOGY. WE NEED PEOPLE WHO ARE INVESTED IN OUTCOMES, AND THAT’S WHAT DR. CARSON IS.>>SPEAKING OF DR. CARSON, WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT CANDY CARSON, SHE HAS BEEN SO PIVOTAL WITH HIS OUTREACH WITH HER READING ROOMS AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE. HOW MUCH OF A VOICE WAS SHE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL AND HOW MUCH WILL SHE BE IN HIS FUTURE?>>WELL, THEY ARE A TEAM. TO SPEAK TO WHAT SHE WILL DO IN RELATION TO HUD, SHE IS HIS WIFE AND HIS GREATEST CHAMPION. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED BEING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL WITH THEM. THEY ARE — AND YOU’VE HAD A CHANCE TO BE AROUND THEM BOTH. DR. CARSON IS VERY CALM AND CANDY CARSON IS A BALL OF ENERGY. SHE IS JUST A FIERCE FORCE. AND THEY HAVE BEEN A TEAM FOR 40 YEARS. AND FOR ME TO GET A CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW THEM AND SEE THEM TOGETHER, WORKING TOGETHER TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND HELP ADVANCE OPPORTUNITIES TO KIDS AND OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS WITH THE CARSON SCHOLARSHIP FUND, THAT WAS A GREAT THING TO BE. A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT THAT DR. CARSON AND CANDY CARSON HAVE HAD WITH THEIR READING ROOMS. I THINK THERE IS 160 READING ROOMS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES.>> David: THANK YOU, AMBER C. STRONG. BACK IN A MOMENT WITH AN OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK WITH A LOT OF GIBBERISH>> David: WELCOME BACK TO “THE BRODY FILE.” IT’S NEW YEAR AND WE WANT TO START IT OFF FRESH. TIME FOR THE OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK. * [HAVA NAGILA]>> David: ONE OF THE THINGS WE DO ON “THE BRODY FILE” IS WE HAVE A LOT OF GIBBERISH AND WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’RE SAYING, OVER ALL. THIS IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHEN I HAD NOT A CLUE I WAS SAYING. IT HAPPENED ON “THE 700 CLUB” DURING A LIVE SHOT. I HAD A LITTLE BIT OF TROUBLE GETTING THIS WORD OUT. THERE ARE FOLKS UP HERE ON CAPITOL HILL THAT WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT BE FOUR PLUS YEARS. NOW, THAT’S SO MUCH — SO MUCH — SO — SO MUCH — SO — EXCUSE ME, I CAN’T EVEN SAY IT. IT IS SOMEWHAT OF A NON STARTER, IF YOU WILL. THERE IT IS, THE OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK. I AM THIS WEEK’S OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK. HEY. ALL RIGHT. I WIN A TROPHY. THANKS FOR JOINING US. UNTIL NEXT TIME, EVERYBODY, GOD BLESS YOU. HAVE A GREAT WEEK. WE’LL HAVE SO MUCH COVERAGE OF THIS INAUGURATION.>>President-elect TRUMP: WOW! AMAZING. AMAZING! OH, THAT IS AMAZING!>> David: WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE THIS. HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
