The Brody File: - February 25, 2016 Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

WE ARE GLAD YOU COULD JOIN

US THIS WEEK.

BY THE WAY, LET ME SAY

STRAIGHT OFF, FROM A

WARDROBE PERSPECTIVE, NO

TIE THIS WEEK.

I'M TOO STRESSED OUT.

THIS CAMPAIGN HAS MADE ME

WAY TOO STRESSED OUT.

I HAD TO GO WITH A MORE

CASUAL LOOK.

IT RELAXES ME.

> LOOK WHAT WE HAVE

HERE, FOLKS?

FOR MONTHS AND MONTHS

DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN

EXCLAIMING, THE

EVANGELICALS LOVE ME AND I

LOVE THEM.

WELL, THAT LOVE AFFAIR

PAVED HIS WAY TO VICTORY

IN THE ALL-IMPORTANT SOUTH

CAROLINA PRIMARY.

72% OF THE VOTERS IN SOUTH

CAROLINA SATURDAY NIGHT

WERE EVANGELICAL, AND WON

33% OF THEM.

TED CRUZ, 27%.

RUBIO TOOK 22% OF THAT

EVANGELICAL VOTE.

SO, LOOK, LET'S NOT KID

OURSELVES HERE.

DONALD TRUMP IS ON HIS WAY

TO THE G.O.P.

NOMINATIONMENT ANNOMINATION.AND IF HE WINSIT, WILL BE

BECAUSE OF EVANGELICALS,

PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

MEXICO IS KILLING US,

ABSOLUTELY.

WE'LL DO THE WALL.

DON'T WORRY, WE'RE GOING

TO DO THE WALL.

WE'RE GOING TO DO THE

WALL.

AND, BY THE WAY, WHO IS

GOING TO PAY FOR THE WALL?

[YELLING]

MEXICO IS GOING TO PAY

FOR THE WALL.

David: LET'S STEP

BACK FOR A MOMENT AND

PONDER THIS: DONALD TRUMP

WON THE EVANGELICAL VOTE

IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

I WANT TO REPEAT THAT

AGAIN.

TAKE A MOMENT.

DONALD TRUMP WON THE

EVANGELICAL VOTE IN SOUTH

CAROLINA.

TED CRUZ, THE EVANGELICAL

CANDIDATE, DID NOT.

MARCO RUBIO, WHO SPEAKS SO

ELOQUENTLY ABOUT GOD,

DIDN'T EITHER.

BOTH THESE MEN ARE SOLID

MEN.

THEY LOVE JESUS.

BUT IT IS TRUMP WHO HAS

DONE THE BEST JOB OF

CHANNELING THE ANGER OF

THE G.O.P. ELECTORATE.

AND, GUESS WHAT?

EVANGELICALS ARE UPSET

WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,

TOO.

THEY HAVE FELT LIKE CHEAP

POLITICAL PAWNS FOR YEARS.

THEY HAVE CONSTANTLY BEEN

USED BY THE G.O.P. TO GET

OUT AND VOTE, AND THEN

THEY HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW

FOR IT.

SO WITH TRUMP, MANY OF

THESE EVANGELICALS FEEL

LIKE THEY FINALLY FOUND

THIS POLITICALLY INCORRECT

MOUTHPIECE TO CHANNELLED

THEIR INNER FRUSTRATION.

IS HE THE MOST RIGHTEOUS

MAN TO CARRY THE TORCH?

NO.

IS HE THE MOST TRANSPARENT

AND AUTHENTIC ONE?

CLEARLY THEY BELIEVE SO.

WE INTERVIEWED TRUMP IN

SOUTH CAROLINA A COUPLE OF

DAYS BEFORE THE SOUTH

CAROLINA PRIMARY, AND HERE

IS SOME OF THAT INTERVIEW.

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR CORE

BECAUSE YOU SAY A LOT OF

GOOD STUFF OUT THERE, BUT

PEOPLE WANT TO MAKE SURE

YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO

DELIVER.

I'M CHRISTIAN, I'M

PROTESTANT, I'M

PRESBYTERIAN.

I THINK THAT

CHRISTIANITY -- I THINK

THE CHRISTIANS IN OUR

COUNTRY ARE NOT TREATED

PROPERLY.

I THINK ALL OF YOUR

PROBLEMS THAT I'VE SEEN AT

THE BILL THAT WAS PASSED

DURING THE LINDEN-JOHNSON

ERA WAS HORRIBLE.

I SEE CHURCHES THAT ARE

AFRAID TO BE OUTSPOKEN

BECAUSE THEY'LL LOSE THEIR

TAX EXEMPTIONS.

THAT'S ONE PROBLEM.

SO ESSENTIALLY, THEY'VE

TAKEN A LOT OF THE POWER

AWAY FROM THE CHURCH, AND

I WANT TO GIVE POWER BACK

TO THE CHURCH BECAUSE THE

CHURCH HAS TO HAVE MORE

POWER.

CHRISTIANITY IS REALLY

BEING CHOPPED.

LITTLE BY LITTLE IT'S

BEING TAKEN AWAY.

I WANT PEOPLE ON CHRISTMAS

TO GO INTO STORES AND SEE

SIGNS THAT SAY "MERRY

CHRISTMAS" AGAIN.

AND IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

WITH ME.

IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN

WITH ANYBODY ELSE.

David: SO YOU JUST

INVOKED LINDEN JOHNSON.

YOU'RE BASICALLY SAYING

YOU WANT PASTORS TO BE

MORE INVOLVED AND SPEAK

MORE BOLDLY FROM THE

PULPIT, LIKE THEY DID IN

REVOLUTIONARY WAR TIMES.

I WANT PASTORS TO BE

ABLE TO SPEAK.

THEY'RE AFRAID TO SPEAK

AND GET INVOLVED IN

POLITICS BECAUSE OF TAX

EXEMPT STATUS.

I WANT PASTORS TO BE ABLE

TO SPEAK, LIKE ANY OTHER

PERSON CAN SPEAK.

THEY CAN'T AS MUCH AS

OTHER MIABLE THAT ARE PEOPLE THAT ARE

WALKING DOWN THE STREET.

I WANT PASTORS AND

MINISTERS TO BE ABLE TO

GET UP IN SPEAK ON BEHALF

OF CHRISTIANITY, AND

THEY'RE AFRAID TO DO IT

RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THEY

DON'T WANT TO LOSE THEIR

TAX-EXEMPT STATUS.

WE WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT.

David: I WANT TO

CLEAR THINGS UP ABOUT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

YOU TALKED ABOUT HOW YOU

ARE NOT FOR FUNDING OF

PLANNED PARENTHOOD BECAUSE

OF THE ABORTIONS THAT THEY

DO.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU

HAVE TALKED ABOUT HOW IN

ESSENCE THEY DO SOME NICE

THINGS.

AS A PRESIDENT TRUMP, IF A

BILL CAME TO YOUR DESK

THAT WOULD DEFUND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, YOU WOULD

SUPPORT THAT?

YES.

BECAUSE AS LONG AS THEY DO

ABORTION, I'M NOT FOR

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

BUT THEY DO CERVICAL

CANCER WORK AND A LOT OF

GOOD THINGS FOR WOMEN, BUT

AS LONG AS THEY'RE

INVOLVED WITH THE

ABORTION -- THEY SAY IT IS

3% OF THEIR WORK, SOME

PEOPLE SAY IT'S 10%, SOME

PEOPLE SAY IT'S 8% -- BUT

IT DOESN'T MATTER, AS LONG

AS THEY'RE INVOLVED WITH

ABORTION, AS FAR AS I'M

CONCERNED, FORGET IT.

BUT WE HAVE TO REMEMBER --

AND I WOULDN'T FUND THEM,

REGARDLESS.

BUT THEY DO DO OTHER GOOD

WORK.

I'VE HAD WOMEN TELL ME

THEY DO SOME EXCELLENT

WORK.

SO I THINK YOU HAVE TO

ALSO PUT THAT INTO

ACCOUNT.

BUT I WOULD DEFUND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BECAUSE OF

THEIR VIEW AND THE FACT

THAT THEY WORK ON

ABORTION.

David: BECAUSE THERE

ARE OTHER GROUPS BEYOND

PLANNED PARENTHOOD THAT DO

THAT FINE WORK.

THAT'S RIGHT.

BUT THEY DO A BIG JOB.

THERE ARE A LOT OF WOMEN

TAKEN CARE OF BY PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

SO WE HAVE TO REMEMBER

THAT.

BUT I AM FOR DEFUNDING

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AS LONG

AS THEY'RE INVOLVED IN

ABORTIONS.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU THIS, THE HEAD OF THE

LOG CABIN REPUBLICAN

GROUP, THE GAY REPUBLICAN

GROUP, SAY DONALD TRUMP

WILL BE THE MOST PRO-GAY

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE WE

HAVE OUT THERE.

I WANT TO GET YOUR TAKE ON

WHAT HE SAID.

I HAVE NOT HEARD THAT

AT ALL.

David: WHAT'S YOUR

REACTION TO THAT?

BECAUSE THERE ARE

EVANGELICALS OUT THERE

THAT WANT TO BE ABLE TO

TRUST YOU ON TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE.

I THINK THEY CAN TRUST

ME.

THEY CAN TRUST ME ON

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

FRANKLY, IT SHOULD HAVE

BEEN STATE.

I WAS VERY MUCH IN FAVOR

OF HAVING THE COURT RULE

THAT IT GOES TO STATES AND

LET THE DISAIT STATES DECIDE.

THAT WAS A SHOCKING

DECISION FOR YOU AND ME

AND A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE.

I WAS VERY MUCH IN FAVOR

OF LETTING THE STATES

DECIDE.

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN OUT OF

NOWHERE CAME THIS MASS

DECISION AND THEY TOOK IT

AWAY.

IAS ALWAYS IN FAVOR OF

STATES DECIDING MANY

ISSUES.

David: THAT IS

DONALD TRUMP HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE,

HILLARY IS BACK.

IT WASN'T A BLOWOUT, BUT A

WIN IS A WIN IS A WIN.

IN THE DAYS AHEAD, WE

WILL PROPOSE NEW WAYS FOR

MORE AMERICANS TO GET

INVOLVED IN NATIONAL

SERVICE AND GIVE BACK TO

OUR COMMUNITIES BECAUSE

EVERY ONE OF US HAS A ROLE

TO PLAY IN BUILDING THE

FUTURE WE WANT.

WASHINGTON IS NEVER GOING

TO HAVE ALL OF THE

ANSWERS, BUT FOR EVERY

PROBLEM WE FACE,

SOMEWHERE, SOMEONE IN

AMERICA IS SOLVING IT.

David: WELL, SHE'S

GOING TO DO WELL IN SOUTH

CAROLINA, TOO, BUT BERNIE

SANDERS ISN'T GOING

ANYWHERE.

HE IS GOING TO NEED TO WIN

SOME MID-WESTERN STATES,

LIKE COLORADO, MINNESOTA,

WISCONSIN, AND PROVIDING

HE DOES THAT, DON'T EXPECT

TO SEE THIS RACE SETTLED

INTO APRIL OR MAY.

> COMING UP NEXT, WHAT

DOES TED CRUZ DO NOW?

AND WHAT ABOUT MARCO

RUBIO?

IS HE POISED TO TAKE ON

TRUMP AND WIN?

SOME ANSWERS WHEN WE COME

BACK.

MADOFF

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

BY THE WAY, THAT YOU

HAVEN'T SWITCHED TO

SOMETHING LIKE "THE GOLDEN

GIRLS," AND SOMETHING LIKE

THAT OUT THERE.

WE ALL KNOW THAT TRUMP'S

BIG SUCCESS IN THE

CAMPAIGN -- WE ALL KNOW HE

HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL, BUT

WHAT ABOUT HIS TWO MAIN

CHALLENGERS, MARCO RUBIO

AND TED CRUZ.

FOR RUBIO, HE HAS A PATH

TO THE RACE.

JEB BUSH IS OUT OF THE

WAY.

PLUS, THE MEDIA IS GOING

TO BEGIN TO CRAFT THE

STORY LINE THAT RUBIO IS

GOING TO TRY TO BE THE

GIANT SLAYER AGAINST

TRUMP.

RUBIO'S PROBLEM IS HE

NEEDS THAT ONE-ON-ONE

MATCHUP WITH TRUMP, AND HE

NEDNEEDS IT QUICKLY, BUT CRUZ

IS IN THE WAY.

SPEAKING OF THE TEXAS

SENATOR, YOU HAVE GOT TO

FEEL FOR HIM.

HE HAS A STELLER RECORD OF

DEFENDING JUDEO-CHRISTIAN

PRINCIPLES, AND CRUZ IS AS

SMART AS THEY COME.

AND THEN ALONG COMES SOUTH

CAROLINA.

YOU WOULD THINK THIS STATE

IS PICTURE-PERFECT FOR

HIM, AND YET TRUMP BEATS

HIM AMONG EVANGELICAL

VOTERS.

33% TO 27%.

AND THAT SIMPLY CANNOT

HAPPEN IF YOUR TED CRUZ.

FOR THAT REASON ALONE, IT

WAS NOT A GOOD NIGHT FOR

HIM AT ALL.

WHAT I'M PICKING UP FROM

EVANGELICAL VOTERS WHO ARE

ON THE FENCE IS THAT SOME

JUST EITHER DON'T TRUST

CRUZ, BASED ON WHAT

HAPPENED IN IOWA, AND ALSO

WHAT TRUMP AND RUBIO HAVE

BEEN SAYING ABOUT HIS

CHARACTER.

ALSO, THEY DON'T

NECESSARILY LIKE THE WAY

CRUZ COMES ACROSS.

HE IS A BIT TOO SLICK.

I'VE GOT TO BE HONEST WITH

YOU, THOSE ARE THE PER

SPEPTIONZ IPERCEPTIONS OUT THERE IN

THE EVANGELICAL WORLD.

AND THIS INTERVIEW WE DID

WITH CRUZ WAS DONE BEFORE

THE PRIMARY DOWN THERE,

BUT IT GIVES YOU A GOOD

SET AND A MINDSET ABOUT

WHAT CRUZ HAS TO DO DURING

THIS ELECTION.

> WHAT DO YOU WANT TO

SAY TO SOME FOLKS WHO ARE

STARTING TO QUESTION IN

ESSENCE YOUR CHRISTIAN

CHARACTER?

HOW MUCH IS THAT HURTFUL

TO YOU?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY TO

THOSE FOLKS?

LISTEN, DAVID, IT IS

THE NATURE OF POLITICS,

THAT UNFORTUNATELY

POLITICS BECOMES OFTEN

MUD-SLINGING AND PERSONAL

ATTACKS.

THE BETTER YOU DO, THE

NASTIER THE ATTACKS GO,

AND THEY TRY TO IMPUGN

YOUR CHARACTER.

MY RESPONSE, I DON'T

RESPOND IN KIND.

SCRIPTURE TELLS US WHEN

YOU REPAY UNKINDNESS WITH

KINDNESS, IT IS LIKE

PILING HOT COALS ON THEIR

HEAD.

David: YOU'RE PROUD

OF JESUS AND YOU LET

PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT IT.

BUT TO FOLKS WHO WANT TO

SAY, OH, GOODNESS, HE IS

TALKING JESUS IN THE

PUBLIC SQUARE AND THEY

START TO HAVE A KINIPSHON,

IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN,

WHAT DO YOU TELL THOSE

FOLKS ON BOARD WHO ARE

CRNLCONCERNED ABOUT THIS JESUS

TALK, COMING ESPECIALLY

FROM YOU.

LISTEN, I'M A

CHRISTIAN.

THE WORD SAYS IF YOU'RE

ASHAMED OF JESUS, HE WILL

BE ASHAMED OF YOU.

I DON'T INTEND TO HAVE

THAT CONVERSATION WITH MY

MAKER.

IT IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF

WHO I AM, MY FAITH.

AT THE SAME TIME, I'M NOT

RUNNING TO BE PASTOR IN

CHIEF.

IT IS NOT THE CALLING OF A

POLITICAL LEADER TO

DELIVER THE SALVATION

MESSAGE.

THAT IS THE CALLING OF US

AS BELIEVERS.

IT IS THE CALLING OF A

PASTOR.

BUT IT IS A DIFFERENT ROLE

TO BE A POLITICAL LEADER.

SO I CERTAINLY DO NOT HIDE

MY FAITH, BUT MY

RESPONSIBILITY AS A

LEADER, AND IF I'M

PRESIDENT, MY

RESPONSIBILITY AS

PRESIDENT, IS TO DEFEND

THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

OF EVERY AMERICA.

ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS

ABOUT THE FIRST AMENDMENT

IS IT PROTECTS THE

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY OF JEWS,

OF MUSLIM, OF ATHEISTS.

AT TOWNHALLS, I

PERIODICALLY GET PEOPLE

WHO ASK, I'M AN ATHEIST,

WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT YOU?

AS A BELIEVER, I HOPE THAT

THAT ATHEIST WILL

ENCOUNTER THE FORGIVING

LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

BUT AS A PRESIDENT, I

INTEND TO BE PRESIDENT OF

EVERYBODY, PRESIDENT OF

EVERY FAITH, BUT ALSO

PRESIDENT OF REPUBLICANS,

DEMOCRATS, LIBERTARIANS,

AND THE BEAUTY IS

PROTECTING THE BILL OF

RIGHTS.

IT PROTECTS EVERY RIGHT.

YOU LOOK AT THE HISTORY OF

OUR COUNTRY.

WE WERE FOUNDED BY PEOPLE

WHO WERE FLEEING RELIGIOUS

OPPRESSION.

THEY DIDN'T WANT

GOVERNMENT FORCING ONE

PARTICULAR RELIGIOUS VIEW

DOWN THEIR THROAT.

RATHER, WE WERE FOUNDED BY

PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO COME

TO THIS LAND, WHERE WE

COULD SEEK OUT AND WORSHIP

GOD ALMIGHTY.

David: ALL RIGHT.

WHEN WE COME BACK, HOW

MUCH SHOULD THE FAITH OF A

CANDIDATE MATTER?

A NEW BOOK ON THAT VERY

TOPIC ADDRESSES THAT HEAD

ON.

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH A

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR.

David: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE BRODY FILE,"

EVERYBODY.

HERE IS A QUESTION FOR

YOU: DO YOU LIKE

McDONALD'S OR BURGER

KING?

NO, THAT'S NOT THE

QUESTION.

THE QUESTION IS THIS: HOW

MUCH IS A PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE'S FAITH

IMPORTANT, AND SHOULD WE

DEMAND RELIGIOUS CLARITY

FROM THEM?

THIS BOOK IS ACTUALLY

CALLED "ASK THE QUESTION,

WHY WE MUST DEMAND

RELIGIOUS CLARITY FROM OUR

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES."

OUR JOHN JESSUP HAD A

CHANCE TO SPEAK TO HIM

ABOUT THIS VERY IMPORTANT

SUBJECT.

HAVE A LOOK.

John: YOU HAVE A NEW

BOOK OUT CALLED "ASK THE

QUESTION."

THE PURPOSE OF MY BOOK

IS CALLED "ASK THE

QUESTION," AND IT'S ME

SAYING, LOOK, IF A

CANDIDATE IS GOING TO PUT

THEIR FAITH IN PLAY,

THEY'RE GOING TO MENTION

IT DURING AN ELECTION,

LET'S NOT LET IT JUST STAY

AT THE GOD BLESS AMERICA,

OR THE VIDEO OF THEM GOING

TO CHURCH WITH A BIBLE IN

THEIR HAND.

LET'S ASK THEM WHAT THEY

BELIEVE.

EVEN PRESIDENT OBAMA

REVERSED HIMSELF ON SOME

THINGS IN OFFICE AND SAID

HE DID IT BECAUSE OF HIS

RELIGION.

HILLARY CLINTON HAS

REVERSED HERSELF ON SOME

MAJOR POLICIES THAT CAME

OUT OF HER HUSBAND'S

ADMINISTRATION BECAUSE OF

HER RELIGION.

John: CAN WE GO

THROUGH THE CANDIDATES ONE

BY ONE, IF YOU WILL, AND

TELL US THE PLUSES AND

MINUS, WHERE THEY MAY HAVE

EXECUTED WELL AND WHERE

THEY HAVE NOT.

LET' SURE.

John: LET'S START

WITH BERNIE SANDERS.

BERNIE SANDERS RAISED

JEWISH AND WEN T WENT TO HEBREW

SCHOOLS.

HE SAYS HE BELIEVES IN GOD

BUT IN A NON-TRADITIONAL

SENSE.

AND HIS NEXT PHRASE IS I

BELIEVE IN GOD IN THE

SENSE WE'RE ALL ONE.

NOT ORTHODOX AS A JEW OR

ANY OTHER STRICT RELIGION.

JUST REALLY BELIEVES IN

GOD AS SORT OF A SPIRIT

ABIDING IN THE PEOPLE.

AND THAT'S HIS CONFIDENCE.

I WOULD SAY HE IS PROBABLY

DOESN'T HAVE A DEFINING

RELIGIOUS FACE.

John: HILLARY

CLINTON.

VERY MUCH A GOSPEL

METHODIST.

SHE IS DEFINITELY ON THE

LEFT SIDE OF THE SPECTRUM.

SHE BELIEVES IN THE SOCIAL

MESSAGE OF METHODISM.

AND LESS IN THE SORT OF

EVANGELICAL WESLEY

PREACHING REVIVAL SIDE OF

METHODISM.

SOMETIMES THE FOLKS ON THE

RIGHT GET A LITTLE

IRRITATED WITH ME WHEN I

SAY SHE IS A FAITH-BASED

POLITICIAN, BUT I SAY

THAT.

John: YOU SAY SHE IS

AMONG THE MOST FAITH-BASED

POLITICIANS OF HER

GENERATIONS?

THERE IS NO QUESTION

ABOUT IT.

SHE HAS BEEN ON THE

FOREFRONT OF AMERICAN

POLITICS FOR DECADES.

SHE HAS BEEN DEEPLY

FAITH-BASED.

SOMETIMES TROUBLE, AND

SOMETIMES WELCOMING PEOPLE

IN THE OCCULT AND PEOPLE

INTO THE WHITE HOUSE, BUT

THIS IS A WOMEN WHO IS A

COMMITTED, THEOLOGICALLY

LIBERAL CANDIDATE.

SHE ISO A DIFFERENT FAITH FROM

EVANGELICALS ON THE

REPUBLICAN SIDE, BUT

NEVERTHELESS FAITH-BASED.

John: TED CRUZ, WHO'S

FATHER IS A PASTOR?

TED CRUZ IS ROOTED IN

CONSERVATIVE BAPTIST SOIL.

HIS FATHER IS A PASTOR,

HAS BEEN, AND PREACHES

NOW.

IN FACT, IN HIS SORT OF

CELEBRATION SPEECH IN

IOWA, HE SAID THANK YOU TO

HIS FATHER, PREACHING IN

HIS CHURCHES.

SO I THINK HE IS A GOOD,

SOLID EVANGELICAL SOUTHERN

BAPTIST MAN.

HE HAS PAID A PRICE IN

SOME OF HIS DECISIONS.

HE COUNTERED SOME THINGS

IN TEXAS THAT WERE

ASSAULTS ON THE GOSPEL AND

ASSAULTS ON THE CHURCH.

I THINK HE IS GENUINE.

IT DOESN'T MAKE HIM A

PERFECT CANDIDATE, BUT AS

FAR AS HIS FAITH, HE HAS

DEEP ROOTS AND HE HAS

LIVED IT OUT.

WE DON'T HAVE TO WONDER IF

THIS IS SOME THEOLOGICAL

CLOTHING TO BECOME

PRESIDENT.

John: DONE TRUM.

DONALD TRUMP. DONALD TRUMP IS

PRESBYTERIAN.

HE IS GOD AND COUNTRY KIND

OF PATRIOT.

LOVES GOD IN A GENERAL

SENSE.

NOT DEEPLY TAUGHT

THEOLOGICALLY.

BORN AGAIN, I CAN'T JUDGE

FROM THIS DISTANCE.

CLEARLY HE IS NOT VERY

COMFORTABLE IN DEALING

WITH RELIGION.

HE APPEALS TO EVANGELICALS

WERE SOMETIMES CLUMSY.

HEY, MY MOM GAVE ME A

BIBLE AND SHE EVEN PUT MY

ADDRESS IN IT.

YOU ALMOST WANT TO LAUGH.

I TWEETED JOSEPH STALIN

GOT A BIBLE FROM HIS

MOTHER.

I'M NOT ANTI-TRUMP, BUT

I'M SAYING THEOLOGICALLY

LIGHT.

MAYBE THIS PROCESS WILL

DEEPEN HIM.

John: THAT IS STEVEN

MANSFIELD HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

David: COMING UP

NEXT, IT IS "POPLITICAL"

TIME.

AMBER C. STRONG MIXES

FAITH, POLITICS, AND

ENTERTAINMENT, WHEN WE

COME BACK.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

I LOVE THIS NEXT SEGMENT

OF THE SHOW.

THE ONLY THING BETTER

WOULD BE AN ALL YOU CAN

EAT LAS VEGAS BUFFET.

AND, BY THE WAY, WE HAVE

DONE THAT.

INSTEAD, WE HAVE THE NEXT

BEST THING TO A BUFFET.

AMBER C. STRONG WITH A

SMORGASBORDS OF FAITH,

POLITICS, ENTERTAINMENT,

IT IS A SEGMENT WE CALL

"POPLITICAL."

*

THANKS, DAVID.

WE'RE HERE AT THE

SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL

PORTRAIT GALLERY TO

CELEBRATE THE UNVEILING OF

A GREAT AMERICAN

PRESIDENT.

NO, NOT HIM, BUT HIM.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT A

PAINTING OF THE "HOUSE OF

CARDS" PRESIDENT FRANK

UNDERWOOD.

THAT PAINTING HANGS HERE

AT THE SMITHSONIAN.

IT IS PLAYED BY ACTOR

KEVIN SPACEY ON "HOUSE OF

CARDS."

"THE BRODY FILE" WAS THERE

FOR THE UNVEILING, MOSTLY

IN SEARCH OF FOOD.

BUT ACTUAL VISITORS WERE

GREETED WITH THIS VIDEO,

BLURRING THE LINES BETWEEN

FICTION AND REALITY.

I SUPPOSE I SHOULD BE

PLEASED ABOUT FINALLY

GOING TO BE HUNG.

OF COURSE, IF THEY KNEW

WHAT WAS IN MY BASEMENT,

THEY WOULDN'T HANG ME SO

CLOSE TO LINCOLN.

Reporter: SPACEY

REMAINED IN CHARACTER FOR

THE ENTIRE UNVEILING.

AND THAT PAINTING WILL

REMAIN HERE AT THE

SMITHSONIAN UNTIL OCTOBER.

HILLARY CLINTON VISITED

THE SET OF THE TV SHOW

"SCANDAL."

"SCANDAL" STAR KERRY

WASHINGTON IS A HUGE

HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTER.

SHE TWEETED, "A GOOD

FRIEND CAME BY THE SET

TODAY, AND I'M PROUD TO

SAY I'M WITH HER."

YOU KNOW THAT ONE TOPIC ON

SOCIAL MEDIA THAT WON'T GO

AWAY?

THAT TOPIC LATELY IS KANYE

WEST.

WHO COULD FORGET ASKING

MARK ZUCKERBERG FOR

$1 BILLION.

SOME PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC

INDUSTRY ARE STARTING TO

WONDER IF SOMETHING IS

REALLY WRONG WITH WEST.

THE CO-AUTHOR OF KANYE'S

SONG, SAYS THIS, MY

BROTHER NEEDS THIS, IN THE

FORM THE SPIRITUAL AND

MENTAL.

RECENTLY KIRK FRANKLIN

COLLABORATED WITH WEST AND

CAUGHT A LOT OF BACKLASH

FOR IT.

HE SAID THIS: "TO A LOT OF

MY CHRISTIAN FAMILY, I'M

SORRY HE IS NOT GOOD

ENOUGH, CHRISTIAN ENOUGH,

OR RUNNING AT YOUR PEACE.

AS I READ SOME OF YOUR

COMMENTS, NEITHER AM I."

SO THE QUESTION REMAINS,

SHOULD WE CARE?

AND WHAT SHOULD OUR

RESPONSE BE AS CHRISTIANS

AND FELLOW AMERICANS.

Daniel: BAC David: BACK IN A

MOMENT WITH A LOOK AT THE

POLITICAL JOURNEY AHEAD.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

WE WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT

WHAT IS COMING UP IN THIS

PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

SUPER TUESDAY IS AROUND

THE CORNER.

SOME OF THE STATES THAT

WILL VOTE: ALABAMA,

ARKANSAS, COLORADO,

GEORGIA, MASSACHUSETTS,

MINNESOTA, OKLAHOMA,

TEXAS, VERMONT, VIRGINIA.

THAT'S ONLY NINE, BY THE

WAY.

BUT THE REPUBLICANS WILL

ALSO HOLD A PRIMARY IN

TENNESSEE, AND A CAUCUS IN

ALASKA.

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE A

CAUCUS IN AMERICAN SAMOA.

IS THAT A GIRL SCOUT

COOKIE?

WE HAVE ACTUALLY NO CLUE

WHERE IT IS.

DONALD TRUMP POSED TO DO

VERY WELL IN MANY OF THE

SOUTHERN STATES.

THE KEY STATE IS GOING TO

BE TEXAS.

CAN TRUMP BATTLE TED CRUZ

IN HIS HOME STATE, IF HE

DOES, FOLKS, THAT

LITERALLY CAN BE THE END

OF THE CRUZ CAMPAIGN.

WE'RE GOING TO SEE HOW IT

PLAYS OUT.

AS FOR THE DEMOCRATS, LOOK

FOR BERNIE SANDERS TO DO

WELL IN MASSACHUSETTS,

VERMONT, MINNESOTA,

COLORADO, WHILE HILLARY

SWEEPS THROUGH THE SOUTH.

AS FOR "THE BRODY FILE,"

WE'RE SWEEPING ON OUT OF

HERE.

UNTIL NEXT
