David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

[LAUGHTER]

David: I'M JUST

LAUGHING.

IT IS OVER.

I MEAN, IT IS OVER.

DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO

BE THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

HOLD ON.

HOLD ON.

HOLD ON.

I'M GOING TO DO THE SHOW

LIKE THIS.

HERE IS WHY I'M DOING THE

SHOW LIKE THIS, BECAUSE IT

HAS BEEN VERY TENSE.

I'VE BEEN VERY TENSE.

I'VE BEEN A LITTLE BIT

ORNERY AROUND THE OFFICE.

NOW I CAN RELAX JUST

BECAUSE THIS WHOLE PROCESS

IS OVER.

SO I'M GOING TO DO THE

SHOW LIKE THIS.

I'M GOING TO DO THE WHOLE

SHOW LIKE THIS.

ANYHOW, DONALD TRUMP.

INDIANA, CULTURALLY

CONSERVATIVE INDIANA, AND

DONALD TRUMP CRUSHES TED

CRUZ, AND TED CRUZ LOOKS

AT HIS CAMPAIGN STAFF AND

SAYS, BOYS, IT IS TIME TO

PACK IT UP; WE'RE OUT.

HERE IS CRUZ.

WE GAVE IT EVERYTHING

WE'VE GOT.

BUT THE VOTERS CHOSE

ANOTHER PATH.

AND SO, WITH A HEAVY

HEART, BUT WITH BOUNDLESS

OPTIMISM FOR THE LONG-TERM

FUTURE OF OUR NATION, WE

ARE SUSPENDING OUR

CAMPAIGN.

[YELLING]

BUT HEAR ME NOW, I AM

NOT SUSPENDING OUR FIGHT

FOR LIBERTY.

David: AS FOR THE

DONALD, HE WAS IN A

SUBDUED MOMENT, ACTUALLY,

AFTER INDIANA.

DONALD TRUMP WAS A BIT

HUMBLE -- WAIT, CONFIRMING

I JUST SAID HUMBLE AND

DONALD TRUMP IN THE SAME

SENTENCE.

THAT IS A FIRST.

HERE IS TRUMP THINKING THE

EVANGELICALS BIG LEAGUE.

TONIGHT I SEE THAT I

WON WITH THE EVANGELICALS.

AND THE EVANGELICAL VOTE

WAS FOR TRUMP.

[APPLAUSE]

AND THERE IS NO GREATER

HONOR -- JUST NO GREATER

HONOR.

WE'RE GOING TO WORK

TOGETHER FOR MANY, MANY

YEARS.

WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IT SO

GOOD.

WE'RE GOING TO BE SAYING

MERRY CHRISTMAS AGAIN.

WE'RE GOING TO BE SAYING

THAT.

David: DONALD TRUMP,

BELIEVE ME, HE OWES

EVANGELICALS BIG LEAGUE.

WHY?

A LITTLE BRODY FILE

COMMENTARY.

David: LOOK, I'D

LOVE TO DO THE COMMENTARY

RIGHT HERE, SITTING HERE

WITH MY TIE UNDONE, A BIT

DISHEVELLED.

BUT FORGET ALL OF THAT.

LET ME TAKE YOU TO "THE

700 CLUB," WHERE I HAD A

CHANCE TO TALK TO PAT

ROBERTSON ABOUT THE BIG

VICTORY FOR DONALD TRUMP

AS HE MOVES FORWARD AS THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE, OR AT

LEAST THE PRESUMPTIVE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

Pat: OUR CBN NEWS

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT,

DAVID BRODY IS WITH US.

DAVID, YOU WERE WITH THE

TRUMPS, YOU HAVE BEEN ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, AND

NOW HE IS TURNING HIS FIRE

ON HILLARY.

TELL ME WHAT IT IS GOING

TO BE LIKE.

David: (laughing)

IT IS GOING TO BE PRETTY

INTENSE, PAT.

BOY, WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN

WITH DONALD TRUMP.

HE HAS DONE THE

UNTHINKABLE.

LITERALLY THE G.O.P.

ESTABLISHMENT NEEDS

SMELLING SALTS THIS

MORNING TO GET THEMSELVES

OFF THE FLOOR BECAUSE

WE'RE IN FOR A WILD RIDE.

LOOK, EVERYBODY THINKS

THAT DONALD TRUMP WILL

FIGHT NASTY WITH HILLARY

CLINTON IN A GENERAL

ELECTION.

AND GUESS WHAT, PAT?

THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

I'M WAITING FOR THE NEWS

CONFERENCE, AND YOU KNOW

IT IS COMING, PAT, WHERE

PAULA JONES AND ALL OF THE

WOMEN FROM BILL CLINTON'S

PAST ARE STANDING AROUND

DONALD TRUMP WHEN HILLARY

CLINTON TRIES TO PLAY THE

WAR ON WOMEN CARD AGAINST

TRUMP.

TRUMP IS GOING TO SAY,

HILLARY, I'VE GOT A FEW

FOLKS I'D LIKE YOU TO

MEET.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

IN FOR PAT, COMING THIS

FALL.

Pat: YOU WERE OUT

TALKING TO VOTERS -- I

HOPE YOU WERE TALKING TO

VOTERS, AND WHAT DO THEY

SAY?

THESE TRUMP VOTERS ARE SO

PASSIONATE FOR THEIR

CANDIDATE.

David: THEY'RE

PASSIONATE BECAUSE HE

BREAKS THROUGH THAT

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS THAT

IS OUT THERE.

THEY CAN'T STAND IT.

AND NEWS FLASH TO AMERICA,

EF CULLEVANGELICALS ARE PART OF

THAT FRUSTRATED CLASS OF

VOTER OUT THERE.

I CALL THEM THE SICK AND

TIRED EVANGELICAL VOTERS,

PAT, WHO HAVE -- LETS BE

HONEST FOR A MOMENT --

PROPELLED DONALD TRUMP TO

VICTORY.

IT IS THE DIRTY LITTLE

SECRET THAT NOBODY WANTS

TO TALK ABOUT.

IT IS NOT THE CONSERVATIVE

CHRISTIANS IN QUOTES THAT

DONALD TRUMP IS

ATTRACTING.

LOOK AT INDIANA ON TUESDAY

NIGHT.

HE ATTRACTED 40% -- EXCUSE

ME, 35% OF THE THE WEEKLY

CHURCH-GOING CROWD.

SO THESE ARE NOT JUST

FOLKS THAT ARE SHOWING UP

FOR EASTER AND CHRISTMAS

IN CHURCH.

THESE ARE ACTUALLY WEEKLY

EVANGELICALS WHO ARE SICK

AND TIRED OF POLITICS AS

USUAL.

AND, QUITE FRANKLY, PAT,

THIS IS AN INDICTMENT OF

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

THE FACT THAT DONALD TRUMP

COULD BE THE NOMINEE OF

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, IT

SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY, HOW THEY

HAVE DECIDED FOR YEARS AND

YEARS, TO SAY, FORGET

ABOUT IT, WE'RE NOT REALLY

GOING TO LISTEN TO THE

VOTERS.

WE'RE GOING TO DO OUR

THING AND BASICALLY DRINK

THE PA PATOMAC WATER.

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, GLITZ, GLAMOUR,

POLITICS, SCANDAL -- IT'S

EVERYWHERE.

JENNY AND THE "B" BLOCK

WAS THERE.

AND SHE HAD A FRONT-ROW

SEAT.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE BRODY FILE."

TIME FOR A LITTLE

HOLLYWOOD AND D.C.,

POLITICS, GLITZ AND

GLAMOUR, THE WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENCE DINNER IS

AN ANNUAL AFFAIR, WHERE

THE STARS ARE HOB-NOBBING

WITH THE POLITICAL NERDS.

AND IT IS A BIG

EXCITEMENT.

BEEN THERE, AND DONE THAT,

I CAN'T STAND IT -- NO,

THAT'S NOT TRUE.

I LIKE IT.

BUT JENNY WAS THERE, JENNY

AND THE "B" BLOCK, WITH

THE LOWDOWN.

*

NOT* YOU GO, GIRL

Jennifer: HOLLYWOOD

TOOK WASH-B WASHINGTON BY STORM.

ACTRESS CANDACE BURE WAS

THE SPECIAL CELEBRITY

GUEST OF CBN NEWS.

IT IS TWO WORLDS

COLLIDING, ENTERTAINMENT

AND POLITICS, AND POLITICS

IS A NEW EVENT FOR ME.

THIS EVENT IS CALLED

NERD PROM.

I THINK BEING A NERD IS

COOL, SO I'LL TAKE IT.

Jennifer: AND SHE'LL

ALSO TAKE THE SUCCESS SHE

IS ENJOYING, SHE WAS

RECENTLY NOMINATED FOR AN

EMMY FOR HER WORK ON "THE

VIEW."

AND SHE STARTS FULL HOUSE

2.

WE LOVE EACH OTHER SO

MUCH, AND WE'RE ALL SO

GRATEFUL TO BE THERE.

Jennifer: YOU PUSHED

BACK AGAINST SOME OF YOUR

CRITICS WHO WATCHED THE

SHOW AND SAY, KISSING

SCENES, SOME OF THE

WARDROBE, SOME OF THE

LANGUAGE ISN'T APPROPRIATE

FOR A CHRISTIAN AUDIENCE

OR ACTRESS.

I'VE BEEN AN ACTRESS

FOR 35 YEARS.

MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE COME

TO WHAT THE BOUNDARIES ARE

FOR US, SO THAT I CAN DO

THE JOB AND EXERCISE THE

TALENT THAT GOD HAS GIVEN

ME, BUT DO IT WITHIN THE

BOUNDARIES THAT MAKE THE

TWO OF US COMFORTABLE.

AND ONE OF THOSE

BOUNDARIES WE DRAW THE

LINE AT IS KISSING, THAT

IT IS NOTHING MORE THAN

THAT.

AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT

I'VE BEEN DOING SINCE I

WAS 13 YEARS OLD.

I HAD MY VERY FIRST KISS

ON "FULL HOUSE."

I THINK SOMETIMES IT IS

FUNNY THAT PEOPLE LOVE MY

MOVIES ON HALLMARK, WHICH

I LOVE MAKING, AND MY

MYSTERY SERIES, AND THERE

IS ALWAYS A KISS AT THE

END OF THOSE MOVIES, AND

PEOPLE LOVE THEM.

Jennifer: SCROLL

THROUGH HER SOCIAL MEDIA

POST, AND YOU'LL SEE BURE

ADVERTISES HER FAITH.

I LOVE JESUS.

MY FAITH IS MY WHOLE LIFE.

I LOVE THE RECALL RELATIONSHIP

THAT I HAVE WITH GOD.

AND IT IS IMPORTANT WITH

ME AND MY FAMILY, AND

SHARING THAT WITH

EVERYBODY BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT THE GOSPEL CALLS US

TO DO, TO GO OUT INTO THE

WORLD AND SHARE THE GOSPEL

AND THE PEACE THAT ONLY

GOD GIVES US THROUGH HIS

SALVATION.

AND SO THAT'S MY CALLING.

THAT'S WHAT OUR CALLING IS

AS CHRISTIANS.

AND SO FOR ME, THAT'S AN

EASY THING TO DO.

IT GIVES ME JOY TO BE ABLE

TO WEAR A T-SHIRT OR HAVE

THE OPPORTUNITY TO

PROCLAIM IT ANYWHERE.

Jennifer: BURE PUT

HER CAREER ON HOLD TO BE A

STAY-AT-HOME MOM WHILE HER

THREE CHILDREN WERE

YOUNGER.

NOW AT AGE 40, SHE

BELIEVES SHE IS REAPING

THE FRUIT OF THAT

DECISION.

I FEEL LIKE THERE IS

DEFINITELY A BLESSING IN

THAT OBEDIENCE, A FEELING

IN MY CALLING TO BE A

STAY-AT-HOME MOM.

AND -- BECAUSE TO SEE WHAT

I'M DOING NOW -- IT

OVERWHELMS ME.

Jennifer: FOR "THE

BRODY FILE," I'M JENNIFER

WISHON.

David: THANKS,

JENNY.

WE HAVE A DOSE OF AMBER C.

STRONG.

HERE SHE IS WITH THIS

WEEK'S "POPLITICAL".

Reporter: HELLO.

HELLO, "POPLITICAL"

PEOPLE.

I MISSED YOU SO MUCH.

DID YOU MISS ME?

I CAN TELL YOU ONE

RELATIONSHIP WHERE THERE

IS NO LOVE LOSS, AND THAT

IS BETWEEN AMAL CLOONEY

AND DONALD TRUMP.

SHE HAD SOME CHOICE WORDS

FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL

FRONT-RUNNER.

CLOONEY TOOK ISSUE AT WHAT

SHE BELIEVES ARE TRUMP'S

VIEWS AGAINST MUSLIMS AND

WOMEN.

SHE TOLD THE B.B.C.,

QUOTE,"I THINK ULTIMATELY

WE'RE DEALING WITH A

PRIMARY SEASON AND NOT THE

FULL ELECTION.

AND SO IF AT THE END OF IT

ALL, HE GETS BEATEN BY THE

PERSON WHO BECOMES THE

FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES, I THINK

THAT WILL SEND A VERY

POSITIVE MESSAGE FROM THE

ELECTORATES BACK TO HIM."

IN OTHER HOLLYWOOD NEWS,

ACTRESS ROSARIO DAWSEN

SAYS SHE WAS GRATEFUL

FOLLOWING HER ARREST IN

D.C.

SHE WAS ARRESTED WHILE

ATTEMPTING TO STAGE A

SIT-IN AT THE U.S.

CAPITOL.

SHE WAS PROTESTIN PROTESTING AT

DEMOCRACY FREE.

IT FIGHTS AGAINST BIG

MONEY AND POLITICS AND

FIGHTS FOR EQUALITY IN

VOTING.

SHE WAS TICKETED,

RELEASED, AND TOLD TO

RETURN IN 15 DAYS.

> AND FINALLY, WE'RE

GOING TO END THINGS ON A

HIGH NOTE, A MUSICAL HIGH

NOTE, THAT IS.

* JESUS DID IT FOR ME

Reporter: THAT,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WAS

A MUSICAL SNACK FROM THE

NEWEST GOSPEL SENSATION

GROUP, "GRACE."

THEY WERE LAUNCHED BY JAKE

JACOB T.D. JAKES.

I SAT DOWN WITH THE QUINT QUIN

TETTE AND ASKED THEM, WHAT

DO GRACE MEAN TO YOU?

WE ALL HAVE A PAST, AND

SOMETIMES YOU CAN FEEL

LIKE YOUR PAST IS SO

DIRTY, BUT GRACE TO ME

MEANS IT DOESN'T MATTER

HOW LOW I GO.

I CAN GO SO DEEP, BUT I'M

NEVER UNREACHABLE TO HIM.

I OPERATE IN GRACE ON A

DAILY BASIS.

Reporter: SO WE'RE

POPPING THAT QUESTION BACK

AT YOU: WHAT DOES GRACE

MEAN TO YOU?

TWEET ME YOUR ANSWERS AT

AMBER C. STRONG AND AT

"THE BRODY FILE" AT

TWITTER.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK'S

"POPLITICAL."

David: SHE DOES THE

"POPLITICAL" AND HOSTS THE

SHOW -- STOP, SHE'S

MULTIPLE TALENT THE.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

PASTOR GREG YOUNG DOWN IN

TEXAS.

WHO IS HE?

HE IS TALKING POLITICS AND

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE BRODY FILE."

I'M A BIT DISHEVELLED,

BECAUSE ALL OF THE TENSION

HAS BEEN RELEASED BECAUSE

DONALD TRUMP IS THE

PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE AND I

CAN RELAX BECAUSE I CAN

SEE MY FAMILY AND ALL OF

THAT GOOD STUFF.

PASTOR GREG YOUNG, DOWN IN

CURVILLE, TEXAS.

HE IS THE HOST OF A RADIO

SHOW THAT IS ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY, AND NOW HE IS

REALLY TALKING ABOUT NOT

JUST POLITICS, BUT THE

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL.

IN ESSENCE, IT IS JESUS

PLUS POLITICS.

IT IS QUITE A STORY.

HE WAS ACTUALLY -- BOY, IT

HAD TO BE OVER 10 YEARS

AGO, HE WAS GIVEN A DEATH

SENTENCE.

HE WAS EXPECTED TO DIE OF

A FATAL DISEASE.

WE'LL HAVE MORE ON THAT ON

"THE 700 CLUB."

HERE HE IS ALIVE TODAY,

PREACHING THE GOOD NEWS OF

JESUS, AND ALSO THE GOOD

NEWS OF POLITICS ON THE

CHOSEN GENERATION SHOW.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO

HIM, AND HERE IS A LITTLE

BIT OF WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.

I THINK THAT OUR NATION

RIGHT NOW IS CRYING OUT

FOR TRUTH.

WE HAVE WATCHED THIS

COUNTRY, FOR THE LAST 50

TO 60 YEARS, BE FED LIE

AFTER LIE AFTER LIE.

WE'VE CHANGED THE VERY

FOUNDATION.

I WAS WITH DAVID BARTON

LAST WEEK, AND WE WENT

THROUGH THE CAPITAL AND

LOOKED AT THE NUMBER OF

SIGNERS OF THE DECLARATION

OF INDEPENDENCE THAT WERE

SEMINARY TRAINED.

WE LOOKED AT THE THINGS

THEY USED TO ESTABLISH THE

VERY FOUNDATION AND THE

CREATION OF THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA.

AND I HAD PHIL GRAHAM ON

THE PROGRAM JUST A FEW

WEEKS AGO, AND IT WAS

FUNNY, AS WE WERE DOING

THE WARMUP, I SAID TO HIM,

"YOU KNOW, I HAVE THIS

HYPOTHESIS THAT IT WAS THE

VIETNAM WAR IN THE 1960s

WHERE OUR NATION REALLY

BEGAN TO SHIFT, AND THE

PATRIOTS WENT TO FIGHT

COMMUNISM, WHILE LIBERALS

AND LEFTESTS AND

PROGRESSIVES TOOK OVER OUR

SEMINARIES AND OUR PLACES

OF HIGHER EDUCATION."

AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW, IT

IS INTERESTING, PASTOR

GREG, I'M GETTING READY TO

WRITE A WHITE PAPER ABOUT

THAT VERY TOPIC.

THE FACT WHEN YOU LOOK AT

BIBLICAL TRANSLATIONS THAT

POPPED UP IN THE '70s,

MOST OF THOSE CAME AFTER

OUR SEMINARIES THAT BEEN

LIBERALIZED.

SO TO YOUR POINT, I

BELIEVE THAT HAVING A TRUE

BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW AS WE

SEE THIS IS IMPORTANT.

AND THE OTHER THING IS,

FROM AN OVERLAY

PERSPECTIVE, I THINK IT IS

THE ONLY WAY TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING.

WHEN WE RECOGNIZE THAT WE

WRESTLE NOT AGAINST FLESH

AND BLOOD, BUT AGAINST

PRINCIPALLITIES ANPRINCIPALITIES AND

DARKNESS, THAT THERE IS A

DARKNESS AND AN EVIL THAT

IS WORKING AGAINST OUR

COUNTRY AND OUR WORLD

TODAY, BUT WE HAVE THE

HOPE OF KNOWING THAT GOD

HAS ALREADY SENT THE

ANSWER AND THE OVERCOMER

AND THE VICTOR.

David: PASTOR GREG

YOUNG, OUR GOOD FRIEND

DOWN THERE IN TEXAS.

MORE FROM HIM HERE ON "THE

700 CLUB," IN A FEW WEEKS.

> WHEN WE COME BACK, THE

NORTH CAROLINA GENDER

ISSUE.

IT IS EXPLODING ALL OVER

THE COUNTRY.

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING

ON WITH THE BATHROOM

ORDINANCES?

WE TALK TO AN LEGEND L LGBT

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

I NEED TO RELAX AFTER ALL

OF THE DECOMPRESSION

MOMENTS THAT I'VE HAD

SINCE TRUMP IS PRETTY MUCH

NOW THE PRESUMPTIVE

NOMINEE.

I FEEL LIKE I CAN CHILL

OUT A LITTLE BIT.

TARGET, AND THE

TRANSGENDER BATHROOM LAWS,

THEY GOT IN A WHOLE BOAT

LOAD OF TROUBLE BECAUSE

THEY SAY, HEY,

TRANSGENDERS, COME ON IN

TO THE BATHROOM STALLS,

WOMAN, MAN, WHATEVER

BATHROOM YOU WANT TO

CHOOSE, THAT'S FINE.

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS

AND MANY OTHERS SAID, NOT

SO FAST.

THERE IS A TARGET -- A

BOYCOTT TARGET COMPETITION

OUT THERE, OVER A MILLION

SIGNATURES AND GOING

STRONG.

SO WHAT IS GOING ON WITH

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS

COUNTRY OVERALL, BUT

SPECIFICALLY AS IT RELATES

TO THE TRANSGENDER

BATHROOM ISSUE.

WE TALKED TO LANE HUDSON,

AN LGBT ACTIVIST, AND HE

HAS BEEN AROUND FOR QUITE

SOME TIME, AND HE BRINGS

THE PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL

POINT OF VIEW TO THE SHOW.

WE WILL WELCOME BOTH

SIDES.

WE HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH

FRANK DISCUSSION, AND HERE

IS SOME OF THAT

DISCUSSION.

LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT

GEORGIA REAL QUICK?

WHAT DO YOU MAKE WITH WHAT

IS GOING ON WITH NATHAN

DEAL.

AND WHAT HE DID DOWN THERE

IN TERMS OF THE VETO OF

THAT TRANSGENDER BILL.

WHEN YOU TAKE THE OATH

OF OFFICE, YOU'RE TAKING

AN OATH OF OFFICE TO

ADMINISTER A GOVERNMENT

FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE

PEOPLE, AND FOR THE

PEOPLE, AND THAT MEANS

EVERYONE.

SO WHEN YOU START HEARING

FROM THE BUSINESS

COMMUNITY THAT WHAT

ACTIONS YOU'RE TAKING ARE

GOING TO HARM THE BUSINESS

ENVIRONMENT, WHICH

PROVIDES JOBS FOR PEOPLE,

IT PROVIDES ECONOMIC

SECURITY FOR FAMILIES, IT

PROVIDES TAX REVENUE FOR

THE GOVERNMENT TO

ADMINISTER THE SERVICES IT

NEEDS FOR ITS CITIZENS,

YOU HAVE TO START

THINKING, AM I REALLY

DOING THE RIGHT THING?

YOU'VE GOT TO BALANCE ALL

OF THE COST OF THESE

THINGS.

AND WHAT HE DECIDED WAS

THE RIGHT THING TO DO WAS

THAT IT WAS GOING TO

HAMPER THE BUSINESS

ENVIRONMENT IN THE STATE

OF GEORGIA, AND HE VETOED

THE BILL.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU ABOUT SOME

EVANGELICALS.

I WANT TO HAVE YOUR

MESSAGE TO THE

EVANGELICALS WHO ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT THE

TRANSGENDER BATHROOM BILLS

WE SEE POP UP.

THEY'RE IMPORTANT FOR

PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW,

BUT EVANGELICALS SEE IT

DIFFERENTLY, AND THEY SEE

IT COULD LEAD TO DANGEROUS

SITUATIONS IN BATHROOMS,

OR AT LEAST IT MUDDIES THE

WATERS AND IT PUTS THEM

ILL-AT-EASE.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO FOLKS

WHO MAY HAVE SOME CONCERNS

ABOUT THIS?

TRANSGENDER DIDN'T JUST

NOW START USING THE

RESTROOMS.

SO I DON'T KNOW WHY IT HAS

BECOME AN ISSUE THAT

PEOPLE FEEL LIKE IT REALLY

HAS TO BE ADDRESSED.

PARTICULARLY, IF YOU LOOK

AT OTHER PARTS OF THE

WORLD -- LET'S LOOK AT

EUROPE.

THEY HAVE GENDER NEUTRAL

BATHROOMS EVERYWHERE.

THE PRIVACY EXISTS IN THE

BATHROOM STALL.

I DON'T KNOW KIND OF WHAT

THE HISTORY IS HERE, BUT

AND HOW BATHROOMS ARE

CONSTRUCTED, BUT IF PEOPLE

ARE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT

PRIVACIES IN A RESTROOM,

THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS

TO GO ABOUT IT THAN

TELLING SOMEONE THEY ARE

OR ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE

A CERTAIN BATHROOM.

I'M NOT SURE IF SOME OF

THESE FOLKS REALLY

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS

TO BE TRANSGENDER, AND I

DON'T, BUT I DO HAVE

FRIENDS WHO ARE, AND I

HAVE TAKEN SOME TIME AND

EFFORT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT

IT MEANS TO BE

TRANSGENDER.

THEY REALLY DO FEEL LIKE

THEY WERE LIVING IN THE

WRONG BODY.

AND THAT THEY WANT TO

TRANSITION TO THE GENDER

THEY BELIEVE IS THEIR TRUE

GENDER THEY WERE BORN

WITH.

AND THEY'RE REALLY JUST

TRYING TO LIVE THEIR TRUE

SELF.

THEY'RE NOT TRYING TO PUSH

AN AGENDA.

THEY'RE TRYING TO FEEL

COMFORTABLE WITH WHO THEY

ARE AND LIVE THEIR LIFE,

LIKE ANYONE ELSE WOULD.

David: WHAT IF IT IS

NOT REALLY ABOUT FOLKS

THAT ARE TRANSGENDER, BUT

SOME FOLKS WHO ARE GOING

TO WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE

OF THESE LAWS.

WHO SAY, TODAY I'M FEELING

MORE LIKE A WOMAN, OR I'M

FEELING MORE LIKE A MAN --

WE'VE SEEN EXAMPLES OF

THIS IN WASHINGTON STATE,

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

PARENTS THAT HAVE CALLED

IN AND HAVE BEEN CONCERNED

ABOUT FOLKS THAT SAY,

UNDER THE LAW, I CAN BE

HERE IN THIS BATHROOM.

IT IS NOT A TRANSGENDER

PERSON, BUT SOMEONE WHO IS

LACKING.

THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS

ABOUT THAT, TOO.

WELL, THAT THOSE PEOPLE

ARE PROBABLY THE SAME

KINDS OF FOLKS WHO SHOULD

BE ARRESTED AND EITHER

SEEK MENTAL HEALTH

TREATMENT OR BE ARRESTED

FOR TRYING TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE IN

THAT SITUATION.

I HATE THESE KINDS OF

QUESTIONS BECAUSE THEIR

KIND OF A ANECDOTAL.

WHEN THE REAL ISSUE HERE

IS WHAT'S THE DIGNITY THAT

PEOPLE SHOULD BE AFFORDED?

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT FOLKS

WHO ARE TRYING TO LIVE

LIVES AND CONTRIBUTE TO

SOCIETY, CONTRIBUTE TO THE

ECONOMY, AND, YOU KNOW,

EVERYBODY HAS TO USE THE

BATHROOM.

David: UH-HUH.

AND THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

TRYING TO, LIKE, GET

ACROSS HERE.

David: LANE HUDSON

HERE ON "THE BRODY FILE."

BACK IN A MOMENT WITH SOME

CLOSING COMMENTS.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

DONALD TRUMP IS CLEARLY

NOW GOING TO BE THE

REPUBLICAN NOMINEE FOR

PRESIDENT.

I KNOW, SMELLING SALTS

MOMENT FOR THE G.O.P.

ESTABLISHMENT.

DEAL WITH IT.

PICK YOURSELF UP OFF THE

FLOOR.

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

CHOOSE A VICE PRESIDENT.

IT COULD BE NEWT GINGRICH.

I KNOW, GET YOUR MIND

AROUND THAT FOR A MOMENT.

BY THE WAY, THAT'S SIX

MARRIAGES BETWEEN THE TWO

OF THEM, DIVIDED BY TWO,

THAT'S AN AVERAGE OF THREE

MARRIAGES FOR THAT TICKET.

MIKE HUCKABEE AS WELL, A

POTENTIAL ON THAT LIST.

SO WE'LL SEE.

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF HE

COULD PICK A WOMAN.

GOOD LUCK WITH THAT, NIKKI

HALEY, BUT SHE SAID SOME

NOT NICE THINGS ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP.

LOOK OUT FOR MASHAH

BLACKBURN IN CONGRESS FROM

TENNESSEE.

THAT DOES IT FOR US,

EVERYBODY.

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOD BLESS

YOU.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.
