Dennis Miller LIVE

Now, this is funny stuff. Powerful stuff. Dennis Miller LIVE:
"Democrats, if you’re going to be the cool kids, you cannot be hysterical every day. If you’re saying Trump is Hitler-like or he’s a hooker junky, you’re missing the point. Because eventually the 'boy who cried wolf' syndrome takes over and people go ‘Geez, it seems to me that Trump won on November 8th and every single day it’s the end of the world. And I just looked up and the unemployment rate is 3.9% and 6.6% in the black community.'
I just think the American people, the people in the middle, are starting to say, ‘Wait a second. Settle down for a second. Can I at least see if he can pull the North Korea/South Korea thing off? Because if he does, you might want to take a break on this he’s Adolf Hitler thing.'
But just because Democrats are on to the flaws in their doomsday messaging, don’t expect a Democrat or prominent liberal to be the first guy who walks in and says, ‘We’re screwing this up.' Because guess what. They’re going to feed on you for a while, you’re the one who’s going to get your head handed to you. The Left and the Democrats run a very tight ship over there, as far as lockstep goes. They make the North Korean troops look like improvisational artists.
I think Trump looks at the House and says, ‘Whatever. I’m in here fighting everyday. You want to make me fight more? You want to put Pelosi back in and make her be the face of an impeachment campaign?' You talk about driving people away from your cause. It’s just not going to work.
But right now, you can’t wake up everyday and say he had an affair with a porn star and a playmate and that’s why he needs to be impeached. That doesn’t work since Bill Clinton. Believe me, I’m socially as liberal as they come but I’d like to keep half my money and I don’t trust radical Islamists as far as I can throw them. I've moved on from the liberal side on certain things. Trump is doing a good job.
Two years ago, I thought Hillary would win. But she so-mismanaged it and seemed so presumptuous and she didn’t seem like a good candidate. Trump was refreshing to hear somebody just talk with that degree of candor. Now he won and I thought, ‘Well, they’re going to try to destroy him now.’ And they’ve spent a year and a half — but he’s kind of rope-a-doped. It’s like Ali in that fight in Zaire. He’s taken six rounds of punches. And I almost think now that for the first time, indeed I am, if not optimistic, I can see a path for thriving under Trump.
If I was Trump, I’d tell the guys in the House to start impeachment right now. “I say you’ve got nothing. I say you’re not going to impeach me. I say you’re going to play this up until the midterms and you’re going to act like it’s coming, and it’s not coming.”
Then I'd take a billion dollars of my fortune and come in with a forklift one day and a hardhat on and I have it all in currency and I’d just drop it in front of Congress and I’d say, ‘Here, here’s my billion — start the wall.”
Listen, I live in California. The more the merrier. Come on over from Mexico — but just sign the guest book on the way in. That’s all I’m asking. What are we doing? Whenever I see people making comments about borders in Congress I always think they’re in a clearly delineated room, in a secure building that is blocked off — they have so many lines of demarcation between them and the people they’re ruling over. And why should the people who hear this, way down in Arizona or Texas on the border, why should they not have any border protection? It just seems crazy to me. The people who are always making pronouncements on the border always seem bordered off from the people that they’re making pronouncements about.
If there is one sentiment that is more prescient than Warhol’s 15 minute admonition, it was Andrew Breitbart saying politics are downstream from culture. That was an absolutely brilliant observation. I do think that kids now are reaching this odd point in where the gospel, through socialism, of subsidized self-reliance is not going to play for these kids. They might parrot it when they’re on campus because they don’t want to be heckled in the library or the student union or shouted down or called a hater. If I was a kid right now and they asked me why I don’t want to practice socialism, I’d use their own language to get out of it; I’d say, ‘You know why I don’t want to practice socialism, because I don’t want to culturally appropriate Venezuela.”
