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

If liberals thought 2016 was bad, wait until they get a load of President Trump in 2017. Interviews this week with a spokesman from the Presidential Inaugural Committee and a one-on-one with Lila Rose, a national pro-life leader who is expecting ... Read Transcript

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.
