7:09 pm
here in new hampshire today on this beautiful day, and i want and roger for hosting this event in this incredible venue. it is unbelievably picturesque. it is this year -- a sincere honor. thank you. today, i want to talk to you about the fight that i believe that we are in for the soul of our republic. i want to talk to you about what we are fighting for, and more importantly, how we fight for it. but before i get any further, i elephanteal with the in the park, or should i say, the donkey in the park? some of you may be thinking what is some form star lawyer -- porn star lawyer coming to us to talk to us about our republic and our
7:10 pm
party? let me tell you why we are here today. in normal times, i would not be with you today. i would be back in los angeles, enjoying my good fortune, but these, as all of you know, are anything but normal times. family into a modest missouri. years of age, i started working a variety of jobs. the summer forn our neighbors, and in the winter, i shoveled there's no -- their snow. i worked a variety of part-time jobs. i worked at mcdonald's, at marshalls. my parents taught me at a young age the value of hard days work. let's be clear, i was not born freight -- with a silver spoon in my mouth, and we never had a gold toilet in our house.
7:11 pm
witnessed my father, who had worked for a company for 31 years and moved his family four times or five times. i witnessed him come home and announced that he had lost his job. why? because the company had decided that it was cheaper to replace him with someone younger. these are not normal times. first in my family to graduate college, and i have since become a very fortunate man. and again, if these were normal times, i would not be here with you today. i would not have had this honor to appear before you today. but a strange thing happened to me earlier this year. accident of fate, i was handed a client who had been wronged by the president of the united date. her onlywriters know
7:12 pm
by her occupation, but i have come to know stormy daniels as someone that believes in truth, justice, and has an incredible degree of courage and fortitude. and in the course of our fight for justice for stormy, something remarkable happened. americans of all walks of life reached out their hands to us and began to provide us with information. and without ever planning to, i suddenly found myself face opposite the most powerful man in the world, fighting not only for stormy, but ultimately other women and countless families who had had their children stripped from them on our southern border. i also found myself fighting on behalf of every american that believes in facts, evidence, and
7:13 pm
justice. now, i am not exactly a stranger to politics. when i was in my 20's, trying to figure out how i was going to pay for college and ultimately lost wall, i worked out over 130 -- worked on over 100 30 democratic campaigns in over 100 states across this nation. , i neverft politics thought i would be standing before each of you talking about our republic and our party. but the trump presidency has hasanized me, as i know it galvanized so many of you and so many millions of other americans. i do not know how yet i will step up, but i am reminded about our founding fathers, when they founded this nation. you see, our founding fathers did not envision career
7:14 pm
politicians. our founding fathers envisioned a system where, when called upon, individuals of our society would step up, rice to the occasion, serve your country, and then returned to their lives. let us be clear. donald trump does not have the knowledge, wisdom, compassion, or fortitude to serve as the president of the united states. [applause] michael: there was a time when i thought that the office would change the man, but unfortunately, we now know that the man is changing the office, and this must end. [applause] what we democrats are fighting for is nothing short then the survival of our republic.
7:15 pm
we are fighting for the ideals that made america america. what we are fighting for is each children, our families, our neighbors, and our cities. we are fighting for the ability of hard-working people to earn a decent living, to pay their health care expenses, and to send their kids to college so they have a shot at a real american dream. what we are fighting for is the ability of our children to go to school and not wonder if they will make it through the day without being shot. [applause] what we are fighting for is roe v. wade. [applause] equality, women's rights, transgender rights, and gay-rights. that is what we are fighting for.
7:16 pm
what are we fighting against? we are fighting against a man who wants to assure us back into the dark ages. a man that wants more pollution, more disregard for the downtrodden, and those with disabilities. more disregard for women and minorities, and more billions for billionaires. ifan who was reelected -- reelected would put our supreme court in favor of the strong over the weak, in favor of corporations over people, and in favor of old men with ideas about women's bodies versus women themselves. [applause] michael: among us democrats here today, nothing that i have just said is controversial. not onmore united than the question of what we're
7:17 pm
fighting for. but we often seem to be a party that is divided as to how we should fight. i believe that there is no question more important than a secure today -- to us here today as to the question of how. this president, no matter how corrupt or cruel he is, he knows how to fight. he may be the worst president is nation has ever known, but he also beat 17 opponents, many of whom were experienced, many of whom were smart, many of whom were very well-qualified, and many of whom hold us how bad he would be. this?d he accomplish because he knows how to fight. he is a fighter. what i fear most for this democratic party that i love so much is that we have a tendency to aing nail clippers gunfight. [applause]
7:18 pm
so today, in this beautiful location in new hampshire, i want to propose a different course. i believe that our party, the democratic party, must be a party that fights fire with fire . i believe we cannot be the party of turning the other cheek. i believe we must be the party of marshaling the law and the government to bring those who hit that cheek to justice. [applause] michael: so i say, when they go low, we hit harder! >> yes! [applause] michael: now, i know that there may be a number of you here today that disagree with me. you may say that the answer to donald trump is to be the exact opposite of donald trump. noble,le, be kind -- be
7:19 pm
be kind, be classy. and i am for all of those things. but today, with our nation under an unprecedented attack by a con man who only fights for himself vulnerable, ihe ask you whether those that we fight for can afford our gentleness. there is no question that we are the party of love in america. [applause] thy neighbor,ving of loving whomever you want to love. policies that extend a loving hand to those that find themselves without a job or at a place a weakness, we are the party of love. but what i believe is when you are the party of love, and when you are fighting on behalf of those that depend on us, you cannot afford to fight lovingly.
7:20 pm
if you want peace, prepare for war, the old latin saying goes. and in that spirit, i say if we want a more inclusive, tolerant, compassionate, welcoming, gracious, and kind of america, we must be willing to do battle to achieve it. if we want the american dream for ourselves, our families, our children, each other, and our cities, we must leave it on the field every day, and we must be willing to fight for it. [applause] here is what i believe the democratic party is -- in the eternal battle of david versus goliath, we are the party of davids. we are the party of people who want to live their lives, chase their dreams, do their jobs, raise their children, leave the
7:21 pm
world a little better than they found it, and who so often find themselves up against goliath. they find themselves up against employers who do not treat them right. they find themselves up against an economy rigged to take the profits and froth at the top and give it to a chosen few. they find themselves up against an outrageous immigration policy that seeks to strip children from families and destroy families in the interest of bigotry. they find themselves up against racism and sexism. we are the party of davids. davids come in black and davids come in white. davids are asian and latino and arab. davids speak spanish and davids speak english. davids are christian and davids are muslim. davids are men and women and gay
7:22 pm
and straight. [applause] davids are people who never would ask for a handout, but who require a helping hand from time to time when they find themselves in trouble. davids are people that struggle to get enough hours at work, so they can figure out a way to pay their bills. davids are families that shoulder find a place for their kids to go to daycare -- struggle to find a place for their kids to go to daycare. are people who want to provide their family with a better life, but in trump's america do not know how. yes, we are the party of davids. and when you are the party of davids, you cannot afford to show up without a slingshot. [applause] >> yes!
7:23 pm
michael: you know, the trial and manyet a bad name, of us deserve it, but i can stand here today and tell you that i am not just some tv lawyer. i have fought on behalf of davids for nearly 20 years in my career. for those years, i have represented people who have found themselves on the wrong side of power. i have battled conmen and fraudsters and corporations that hurt people simply because they thought they could get away with it. ofave fought on behalf of jewish families who learned that the remains of their loved ones had been scattered in a mass grave because the publicly traded cemetery company wanted to make more money. many of my clients survived the holocaust only to end up in a mass grave on u.s. soil. on behalf of first responders, doctors, who risk their lives treating those with
7:24 pm
ebola and hiv and other deadly diseases and relied on surgical equipment that they understood to be safe because the company that made that equipment did not tell them a secret, and the secret was they had moved the manufacturing to honduras in order to save money and that the surgical equipment was thus doctors and nurses and first responders were risking their lives day in and day out. and most recently, i have fought on behalf of dozens of families who appeared on our southern border in search of a better life for them and their kids. only to run up against the ultimate goliath, donald trump, who wanted to send a message to the world -- don't come to america, because if you do, we will take your children from you. you may never see them again. and you will this -- we will destroy your family. this is not our america! [applause]
7:25 pm
michael: here is what i have learned over the last 20 years battling goliath. theaths do not readily see errors of their ways. they do not just roll over one day and admit they are wrong. they do not just roll over and do the right thing. no, when you are battling goliaths, you have to fight every day, and you have to bring them to justice. there is no other way when you are battling goliaths like donald trump. [applause] michael: but let me also say this. in the age of the dumpster fire that is the trump presidency -- [laughter] michael: make no mistake about it, it is one large dumpster fire. we cannot afford as a party simply to fight against. we must also fight for -- for
7:26 pm
davids. we democrats must fight to put americans back to work in good paying, solid jobs, though an infrastructure plan, or real infrastructure plan that rebuilds our roads, our airports, our public transportation. we must fight to make college affordable for every american. [applause] no one in the greatest country on earth should hesitate to send their child to college because they cannot afford it. we must fight for medicare for all. [applause] our men and women in ae military do not leave fallen soldier behind on the battlefield, and when one of our own experiences health care
7:27 pm
problems, we should not leave them behind either. we must fight to ratify the equal rights amendment. it has been too long. [applause] must fight for sensible gun control in america. we should never have another school shooting on u.s. soil. [applause] finally investt in our public school teachers who have sacrificed so much day in and day out for the future of our children. [applause] and we must fight to secure our border while at the same time honoring the values and principles that founded this paying homage to people like my great grandfather, who came to america
7:28 pm
in search of a better life. [applause] if we are to be successful in connection with these fights, we must do something that many of you may oppose. we must figure out a way to welcome some of the voters that voted for donald trump home. do i believe they were wrong in 2016? absolutely. do i believe that their choice hurt millions of americans and put our children at risk? absolutely. do i believe their choice resulted in significant disrespect abroad for this country? absolutely. but we must believe -- we must figure out a way to bring them home if we are to be successful in each of our fights. i am concerned that if we shame them, if we make them wrong, we may lose them forever. so today, let me propose a
7:29 pm
aboutent way of thinking some of these voters. let me suggest that for our own sake above all, because we need and we must win, that we think of them not as evildoers but as victims of a great con. [applause] michael: look, we have all been taken advantage of before. if there is one thing i have learned in nearly 20 years as an advocate, it's that smart people get conned all the time. and let's admit it -- donald trump is a great con man. he sold many of us a bill of goods. he appeared as a snake oil salesman and he promised millions of americans everything that would cure their ails.
7:30 pm
we must welcome some of these voters back home. let me also say this. -- you see, trump is hoping that millions of americans fail to see the connection between their struggles and the struggles of others. president and unusual would not be in power had he not convinced two thirds of people who look like me that their success dependent -- depended on the trampling of women, minorities, african-american, muslims, immigrants, the disabled, and so many others. and he does this because he hopes that if we are whipped into hatred, we will forget all of the broken promises, all of the jobs he promised that have not materialized, that we will forget all of the embarrassment he has brought us here domestically and abroad. you see, too many of us have
7:31 pm
forgotten that old phrase, their walk i but for the grace of god. too many of us have trouble putting ourselves in the shoes of those trump is hurting. too many of us have failed to ask, if it were me, how would i like to be treated? too many of us have been standing on the sidelines and allowing justice -- allowing injustice to be done because they are not us. the vulnerable populations whom trump is targeting are fighting for their very survival, but it cannot be there fight alone. -- be their fight alone. it is imperative for us to stand and say, enough, these are my people too. [applause] americans can
7:32 pm
stand and say this, and say it loudly, if all of those who have forgotten the phrase that there but for the grace of god go i, if we can muster the will to fight, we can defeat president trump's unusual cruelty. we can and will make the american dream real again. we will make america gracious again. [applause] we will make america fair again. [applause] michael: we will make america dynamic again. [applause] michael: we will make america respected again. , we will makeelse america america again.
7:33 pm

7:43 pm
>> get ready, ask your questions. is this a beautiful place, or what? >> have you been here before? michael: three times prior. the first time was in 1992, i was a student at penn and a friend of mine came up with the brilliant idea to take a road trip in the dead of winter to new hampshire to visit a friend working on the clinton campaign. we got two flat tires and dealt with ice and snow, but he was a good trip. and i have been back a few times. >> are you closer to making a decision? michael: no, i was in tampa last countyat a hillsboro function.
7:44 pm
maybe i should go to every hillsboro county in the united states and the know will make a decision. no, i will continue to travel and talk to people and listen and figure out what i'm going to do. aret sounds like you considering this seriously. michael: i am very serious. in nebraska, they thought it was a publicity stunt, which is offensive to me and to the people of iowa. this is not a lark. i'm going to seriously consider i thinke 2020 election it is the most critical in modern times, there is a lot at stake and i want to make sure the democrats ultimately nominate someone who can be donald trump. >> how would you bring the fight him in a campaign? michael: the same way i have done it over the last five to six months, but i think even more effective, where i would throw my hat in the ring. my think i can promise you, donald trump does not want to
7:45 pm
debate me on a national stage, no question about that. >> why is that? michael: he is a bully and he does not like people who punch back and i think i would be incredibly effective against him. i don't think he is quick on his feet or that intelligent, and i think he is completely outclassed. >> where is your next stop? michael: iowa on wednesday. then in chicago at a function for the dnc, and likely back here in new hampshire in late december for two events. i've been invited to speak at an event in california. i'm going to go back to ohio, i'm going to be very deliberate about the process. >> you said these are not normal times and you would not be here but for the lack of normality. what does it say that somebody like you is all of a sudden pitching themselves as the most effective fighter in the democratic party?
7:46 pm
michael: i don't think that's an indictment on the party, more of a reflection of the individual in the white house. this is a very finite set of circumstances i think we find ourselves in. i believe this is all about matchups. i would propose that hillary would have beat likely anyone else in the republican primary other than donald trump. it just so happens that was not a good matchup at the time for her. this is all about the matchup. proceedsmocratic party to nominate the person that would be the best president, that would be a mistake. we had that individual in 2016. hillary clinton without a doubt in my mind was the most qualified individual to ever run for the white house in the history of our nation. think about that for a minute. that is an incredible statement that it happens to be true.
7:47 pm
unfortunately, she could not beat donald trump in the electoral college. all of the experience in the world, all of the qualifications in the world, all of the policy positions in the world to not mean anything if you can't beat donald trump in the general election. >> what you think are the champions -- the chances that president trump will run again? michael: i think those chances are significant. i have said in the past that he will not serve out the balance of his term, and i maintain that, a lot of things have to fall in the place for that to happen. it is a dynamic situation and we don't know what mueller is going to conclude and what congress is going to look like. in answer to your question, absolutely. >> do you worry that democrats are surrendering to the politics of trump? michael: no, i think you need to change your tactics depending on the circumstances you find yourselves in.
7:48 pm
these are very unusual circumstances, as everyone knows, and i think they call for a change of tactics. not016, the democrats did necessarily know ultimately who they would run against. now we present what we know or have a good idea. the party needs to nominate the person who can best match donald trump. you don't worry that doubling down on those tactics will have a negative effect over time? i think whoever beats donald trump would be more of a unifying force than donald trump or someone on the republican side. i think it will be critically important that in the event democrats prevail in 2020, that whoever wins seeks to unite the country. it will take somebody to really bring the country back together after the election. brutal,ction will be knockdown, drag out street fight. if someone is not up for that
7:49 pm
type of cap, they do not need to seek the nomination. >> tell us more about what you think you can win and why you would be good at being president? michael: i've dealt with a lot of obligated issues over almost 20 years and legal practice. tried cases all over the country. i believe i am a good communicator, and know how to surround myself with high-quality people, and more importantly, i know how to listen. the problem with this president, apart from that he is not smart enough and has no compassion, he doesn't want to work with anyone. people don't want to work with this guy. he can't get himself competent counsel, let around -- let alone people in government. when he does surround himself with people like that, he doesn't listen to them because his ego will not allow him to have costars on the stage. when you are president, it is not a solo position, you need to
7:50 pm
surround yourself with people who need -- no what they are needng about, and then you to listen to them rather than behaving like a buffoon. >> republicans you up a little bit about the irs. are you worried? michael: i'm not worried about it. show me someone who has had great success and i will show you someone who has had great challenges. anything else? >> [indiscernible] i've already stated that in the event i will -- that i run, i will not accept corporate pac dollars. anyone who accepts the nomination in 2020, it's one thing to say they will not accept corporate pac money, that is not good enough. if you been accepting it all this years, you will use it to run for president.
7:51 pm
every potential nominee, as soon as they announce, they should ofund, disgorge every dollar pac money they have received. we are going to find out if there is some fear about not wanting corporate pac dollars impacting elections. >> any last questions? michael: thank you for coming out. i appreciate it. [indiscernible] >> i think you would make a great president. i'm little worried about mitch mcconnell [indiscernible]
7:52 pm
prepared to have a team that can fight all of that? michael: absolutely. i think whoever the nominee is, if they are able to ultimately beat donald trump, i think they will have a wide selection of competent and qualified people. i think the most important thing is not only that the legs -- the next president surround themselves with the right people, but listens to them. [indiscernible] we are going to get that seatback that was stolen. >> this is my story. president, i would like you to do away with statute of limitations on children who have been abused able to report. michael: i will look at it. thank you for coming out. [indiscernible]
7:53 pm
michael: thank you for coming out. thank you. [indiscernible] >> if you need any help, let me know. [indiscernible] >> one of my angles is legalization of cannabis. where are you? michael: i think it should be declassified as a schedule one. >> that's all i need here. no more schedule one. thank you, nice to meet you, thank you for all you are doing. michael: what your name? i like your shirt. >> my name is margaret. it's a new movement.
7:54 pm
and can doupset anything, write a check. we are all with you. michael: thank you. >> thank you bring much. michael: i like your shirt. >> i like it, too. michael: thank you for coming out. a pleasure. >> i appreciate it. [indiscernible] >> are you -- what specifically are you doing in new hampshire? michael: here with all of these people in this beautiful setting. >> and we're happy to have you
7:55 pm
here in this welcoming state. [indiscernible] michael: helping democrats raise money. [indiscernible] raced good money last night, we raised good money and iowa and ohio. i'm going to go back to iowa and help democrats raise money for the midterms. >> and you're helping children find their way back home? michael: yes. >> i'm really happy about that. we are in an uproar about that. michael: the federal government, if trump [indiscernible] >> don't even get me started. [laughter] michael: he asked the aclu to fix the problem he created. while he was degrading women and
7:56 pm
