7:00 pm
weekend in november you can catch me on "get tammy bruce" exclusively on fox nation. on monday i'm going to be laboring on labor day. i will be on "outnumbered at noon. find me at tammybruce have a beautiful weekend. it's been a pleasure. ♪ ♪ >> raymond: i am raymond arroyo infer laura ingraham ingraham. this is a special edition of "the ingraham angle." we have a big show for you. florida governor ron desantis will react exclusively to biden's divisive and frankly dark speech about america and later i'll go golfing with actors mark wahlberg, kevin dillon, boxing great sugar ray leonard and evander holyfield. you'll not want to miss the hijinks. stick around. first it appears that
7:01 pm
president biden has awakened from his hellish fever dream of last night. his nightmarish speech which looked like he'd either wandered onto the set of triumph of the will or into amsterdam's red light district, is all over now. today he has no memory of it. watching all of this recall that moment at the end of the musical 1776 when john adams prowls independence hall in frustration. >> is anybody there? does anybody care? does anybody see what i see? >> tammy: biden would probably call adams an extremist but is anybody there? does the president even know what he saying? you decide. i'm not going to comment. you watch. >> there's no question that the republican party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by donald trump and the maga republicans. and that is a threat to this country.
7:02 pm
>> i don't consider any [indistinct] >> donald trump and the maga republicans were present and extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic. maga republicans are destroying american democracy. >> raymond: cleanup on pennsylvania avenue. whoever put the president up to this should be fired. my suspicion is that after the ferocious backlash to the speech, the staffers response or biden himself made the decision to backtrack. even the ratings prove what a bust of the speech was but he did confirm wise 75% of democrats in a recent cnn poll quanto candidate other than biden in 2024 and why his approval is at 42% but the nagging question remains. is anybody there? furthermore, we are joined exclusively by the governor of florida, ron desantis. governor, thank you for being here.
7:03 pm
overnight polling must've been really bad for biden's big fascism speech, given the whiplash he gave everybody today. what was your initial reaction when he first heard what he said? >> i thought it was one of the most disgusting speeches in american president has ever given. he ran as being a unifier and he's basically saying to the vast majority of the country that disapproves of him that they are effectively a threat to the republic. he daughters. he lashes out. at the end of the dam's policies are why there is so much opposition. he kneecap to american energy. and it's hurt millions of millions of people. we have one of the worst inflations we've had in over 40 years. people are going to be upset at all of the wreckage he is left in his wake. he is the american nero. he is a failed leader and i
7:04 pm
think is doing it because he trying to energize his base to fend off a real butt whipping in november. >> tammy: is it senility or self-preservation because he saw the polling? >> it has been said that the president of the united states is whoever is reading his teleprompter. if they fed that teleprompter and he angrily deliver that speech and lashed out at his fellow countrymen. he was asked off the cuff and he said something totally opposite. they are tweeting from his account the same nasty stuff he said last night. i think the people who are in control of the white house want to drive this message the people that dissent from his policies are somehow second-class citizens. they have been willing to mobilize the administrative apparatus of government to go after people they don't like. remember this time last year they were imposing vax mandates. they wanted people to lose their
7:05 pm
job based on getting an mrna shop or not and unfortunately having the weaponization of this government did something when you talk about 87,000 irs agents, who is not going to go after? it's going to go after the people that he was attacking in his speech last night. >> raymond: governor, here's what biden said about acceptable republicans. watch this. >> not every republican embraces their extreme ideology. i know because i've been able to work with these mainstream republicans. american democracy only works only if we choose to respect the rule of law and the institutions that were set up in this chamber behind me. only if we respect our legitimate political differences. >> raymond: governor, who made biden the passport officer of mainstream republicanism, and does the florida fit in that definition do you think?
7:06 pm
>> look. he talks law. what has he done? he violated his oath of office to take care that the laws are faithfully executed by opening the border. he's not following the law. look at what he did with the student loan bailout. congress never authorize that. he is citing a law from september 11 to somehow give loan forgiveness and put it on the backs of the taxpayer for people with degrees in gender studies. spare me this idea of the rule of law. he doesn't give a darn about the rule of law and yes, the only republicans he likes our republicans that want him to get his way. if you stand up against his bad policies, like we do in florida, then of course he's going to try to write you out over who is acceptable as american citizen. >> raymond: of kevin mccarthy become speaker, is he an acceptable republican? is he not going to speak to the speaker of the house? i rather doubt it. governor, last night we saw two marines standing at attention behind biden. one veteran's group that they
7:07 pm
are reduced to props. here's how the white house press secretary defended it. >> the presence of the marines at the speech was intended to demonstrate the deep and abiding respect the president has for these service members. to these ideals and the unique role are independent military plays in defending our democracy. >> raymond: governor, you're a veteran. your reaction to that. >> yeah, i mean, he's using those marines as a prop for a partisan attack on half the country. i think that that's something that doesn't sit well with a lot of veterans. i would also say he respects veterans. he respects active duty. he has kicked out military members based on the covid jab. that's not respect in my book. we have lost a lot of good people who wanted to serve but for his mandates. >> raymond: some are saying that it wasn't a way to underscore his war talk and they keep saying it's not a political speech. but it sure sounded like it in
7:08 pm
the imagery was quite aggressive. like the praetorian guard surrounding him. >> yeah, look, you look at the way he has weaponized federal agencies. it all plays into this idea of him mobilizing government against people he doesn't like. he has done that time and time again and i think he's going to continue to do it. if republicans do to control, they need to hold them accountable because i think it's likely to get worse if he loses in the midterms. >> raymond: governor we knew school closings during covid were devastating but this national test results, this report card shows that the pandemic erased two decades of progress in math and reading. but democrats are trying to blame republicans. i have to ask, you took a lot of criticism for reopening those schools early in florida. what is your message tonight for those trying to blame you anti-trump for these educational setbacks? >> first of all, the pandemic didn't cause that was those
7:09 pm
setbacks. lockdown policies of democrat governors anthony fauci, national teachers unions who wanted schools close, they are the ones that cause that. in florida we said you've arrayed to be in school then you need to be in school and we've done much better as a result but it wasn't the pandemic. all it required was leadership to say we need to keep kids in school. those democrats in those unions and the left anthology, they've chose ideology over what was right for those kids and the damage is going to be lasting regardless of what fauci wants to tell you. >> raymond: the pools moving into the midterms, what would be your advice to the republican party? what notes should they strike in these closing days and how should they counter what we heard from president biden last night? >> hold biden accountable. it's a referendum on his failures. make sure everybody knows how his policies have contributed to the mess we are in and then articulate what you will do to
7:10 pm
address things like the border, like crime, like inflation. i think if you do that, i think republicans are going to win both chambers and i think it's going to be a really good day. >> raymond: governor ron desantis, thank you for taking the time. happy labor day. talk to you soon. >> the core point he made of that political speech about a threat to democracy is true. that's something that's not easy for us as journalists to say. the republican party right now that is led dishonest demagogue. >> he frame this as an emer emergency. to me it was an urgent wartime address. >> raymond: a wartime address. by the way, that first gent, john harwood, he was fired by cnn today. i do agree it sounded like a wartime address, declaration of war on half of america. joining me now, ari fleischer, fox news contributor, former white house press secretary, mercedes schlapp, cpac sr.
7:11 pm
fellow and former white house strategic communications director. thank you both for being here. you are with president bush during and after 9/11. you are quite familiar with wartime addresses i think. was this one, and what do you make of the laborers to paint biden as a wartime president? >> my summary of what joe biden said last night is "your people are the enemy of my people." this is the type of president we have for the united states of america. if you disagree with me, if you have different views, you support donald trump, you are the enemy of the american people. that's how joe biden is dividing his term in office. george bush used similar language about al qaeda when he said you're either with us or against us. you don't say that about the american people. there are many conservatives, many liberals who love this country and have a clash of ideas. that's called democracy. but when you, the president of the united states, vilify half
7:12 pm
the country in an effort to put them down and delegitimize them, you the one who is now the nation's divider in chief. that's the type of president we have with joe biden. >> raymond: like a man or a care unit most illini. it was frightening and sad at the same time. today on msnbc. this comparison. >> what happened, we have a civil war. we have folks who eject the basic premise. there's been this thread in american life where there are those who are not necessarily committed to democracy. they are committed to an idea that ours must remain a white nation in the vein of old europe. to create a space to choose the country as opposed to a party. >> raymond: your response and the media framing of what we heard last night? >> right, well, i've got to tell you, raymond. it's very disturbing to watch these political analysts and joe biden and the democrats
7:13 pm
basically provoking violence, provoking war, creating this division in our country where they have defined an enemy from within with the maga republicans. these individuals. i'm telling you millions of americans across the country who simply love america, love our traditions, love our freedoms, who want to make sure that there is dissent and debate within our nation and dialogue within our nation. for president biden to all of a sudden backtrack had not even remember what he said last night, that's what it almost sounds like, it's also very disturbing because you have to ask yourself, who is really running the white house if he can't even remember the speech he gave last night? is it forget it forgetfulness for real or did he really walk it back? democrats are putting us in this country in a very dangerous position right now. >> raymond: it's an important point.
7:14 pm
i spoke earlier with governor desantis about it. do you think it was a deliberate walk back or was he just forgetful and didn't know what he said last night? >> it's a sign of a man who doesn't really know what he's saying or mean what he says. the problem with joe biden is he has a nasty history on these issues. he is the guy when mitt romney ran, was that the republicans want to put black americans in chains. he's the man who said that if you oppose him, it is bull connor. if you oppose -- if you supported the georgia election law, its jim crow 2.0. he called people who opposed him semisemisemifascists. if he really cared about democracy, how come he doesn't criticize stacey abrams for refusing to recognize that brian kemp legitimately beat her in 2018. why doesn't he criticize his own press secretary who said that election was stolen. why didn't he criticize hillary clinton and jimmy carter who called donald trump an illegitimate president.
7:15 pm
both sides engage in this rhetoric but when one side democracy is in danger, than you know the only thing they are saying is if you don't support my party, that's democracy being in danger. it's nonsense. our democracy is thriving and it will thrive even warmer joe biden leaves office. >> raymond: when he said if you don't vote for me, you ain't black. he's basically saying if you don't vote for me, you're not american. mercedes, last word. >> i've got to tell you, i think we are running into a situation where it's only creating more enthusiasm for republicans. they have had it. they don't want to hear it anymore from joe biden so if there's one good thing that's come out of this is the fact that we are going to have a red wave come november because republicans are fed up. they don't want to be treated poorly. they don't want to be criticized for what they believe in witches that of making america great again. making sure that america stays strong and what we know about joe biden is that he has adopted
7:16 pm
policies that are destroying this nation, making us weaker every day and putting our nation at peril. >> raymond: ari and mercedes, think you both for being here. in the most absurd political narrative since biden's hellish speech last night, the white house and democrats are now taking credit for reopening schools. we'll remind you what they were saying back in 2020, plus the fbi released a list of what was found at mar-a-lago. but what they didn't find could be more telling. the details next
7:17 pm
7:18 pm
7:19 pm
7:20 pm
7:21 pm
>> there is no science that supports keeping those especially those in younger grades away from the classroom. we know what happens when kids miss school. not learning as well, depression and anxiety. zoom is not the answer. >> raymond: as far back as 2020, the angle and many republicans understood the importance of keeping kids in school during the pandemic. we warned you there was going to be purple damage done to our children. now new data from the national assessment of educational progress shows we were unfortunately right. the two years of the pandemic,
7:22 pm
we saw a devastating drop. not only did 9-year-olds lose ground in math but reading scores fell by the largest margin in more than 30 years. the white house is trying to gaslighted the americans on the entire issue. >> we were in the place where schools were not open. shows you how mismanaged the pandemic was and how the impact of that mismanagement had on kids progress. academic well-being. >> raymond: wait, wait, wait, is she trying to blame trump for this? back in 2020 he was urging schools to reopen. meanwhile it was the democrats who were working with the teachers unions to keep them close. they even trolled trump with ads like this. >> desperate to reopen schools because he thinks it will save his reelection. >> we have to open the schools. >> critical shortage of ppe. >> threatening their funding. >> they don't open their schools, we are not going to fund them.
7:23 pm
>> ignoring how the virus spreads. risking teachers and parents lives. going against the advice of experts. >> limited impact on young people. >> do you trust him to do what's best for our children? >> raymond: in hindsight most parents probably trust him a hell of a lot more. the democrats. giving schools in f especially regarding minority children, the teachers union president randi weingarten participated in a biden administration back-to-school celebration. i am sure that will help the kids' test scores. joining me now, ben dominance, editor at large for the spectator, and fox news contributor. thanks for being here. we know the teachers unions were read coordinating with the administration and the cdc to keep schools close. the white house press secretary says it was the biden administration that has to what
7:24 pm
damage trump did. does any of this ring true or make sense? >> none of this rings true. it's a total blatant lie. they are doing so through their teeth and hoping the american people have very short memories. as you know, this was an act that was totally protectable, terrible, and was being indicted even as they were making these bushes and very activist ways, leaning on their bureaucratic friends in order to keep these schools close in ways that created enormous damage and look, we are getting the earliest kind of science of the way that this is impacting a generation of children. i predict and i think that a lot of people would agree with me, that we will be tracking this for the coming decades in terms of a population of students it was so poorly served, setback an enormous and predictable ways when it came to their education. this is something that is
7:25 pm
absolutely abhorrent. it is something everybody should be apologizing for and instead we have the same group of people, randi weingarten all these other despicable people who created a situation where they were essentially holding children hostage in order to try to get more money out of congress for their union funded and backed educators across the country in ways that they really did not need in order to reopen. essentially created a situation that put these children at the epicenter of the completely damaging negative and horrible circumstance that is setting them back in ways that we will be tracking for the rest of their lives. >> raymond: you hit upon it. the focus here has been on unions rather than children. randi weingarten who you just mentioned, she's the head of the teachers union, she -- even though she got $130 billion plus, she is still wanting more
7:26 pm
money. the lord over parents and their kids. watch. >> even though we got a lot of money from the american rescue plan and that was really important in terms of dealing with the aftereffects of covid which we are still living through. we have to focus on what kids need this year. ultimately we need to have the ongoing investment in schools if we want to have the teachers we need for kids. >> raymond: one of the schools doing with the hundreds of billions they've already gotten? >> i saw a comment on twitter of how this commentary from randi weingarten it's oftentimes you'll find you'll find arsonists reappear at the sight of the homes in the houses they burned down. that really is an apt description of what she's doing. this is absolutely abhorrent. the nation should not accept it.
7:27 pm
what's unfortunate in this instance is more republicans worked aggressive in criticizing it at the time. you saw those ad campaigns. the ad that you ran, you saw a lot of moderate republicans kind of recoil and say we don't want to be looking like we are anti-teacher or anti-school or something like that. they should've leaned into it. they should've been more aggressive, just as glenn youngkin was in virginia. >> raymond: thank you so much for being here. happy labor day. before i bring in jason chaffetz, i want to remind you my star-studded golf outing with mark wahlberg, kevin dillon, sugar ray leonard and more coming up. stay for that. that first. >> mar-a-lago has to be an intelligence target for foreign intelligence services. >> if keeping the documents and sharing them or maybe even selling them, there's no evidence of that yet but that's been suggested as a rumor. >> raymond: what was actually found in the raid on trump's
7:28 pm
home? the doj providing more information and it's not as salacious as they want you to believe. they found magazines, newspapers, clothing, all my don't forget about the dozens of empty folders. joining us now, jason chaffetz. is all of this worthy of an fbi raid? is it germane to any investigation? >> it doesn't appear to be. i was struck by how few items were on the floor. the idea that they would take this photo and use it as propaganda, that was not part of a court filing. the judge does need to look at that. the magistrate doesn't need a photo of it. they need a description of it. they print out this photo and a tighter drive home the point. spewed out in front of the cameras to be taken. less confidence.
7:29 pm
that's not how justice works in the united states of america. and why in the world where they even bothering with a framed cover of "time" magazine? come on. >> raymond: the thing that struck me and you see the picture. these are dozens of empty classified folders. there is nothing in them. they are empty. look, anybody who has interviewed president trump orban to his offices in new york or elsewhere knows he's a collector. he is a momento bug. he's got knickknacks everywhere. i could foresee him wanting the wrapping of the top-secret folder but we don't know where the interior went. he probably sent it back to the agency, right? >> does anybody believe that donald trump on the last day or two of office was over there packing his own boxes? nobody believes that. so look, i was the chairman of the oversight committee when we had serious investigations with the state department, the irs. i was issuing subpoenas. we were talking about tens of
7:30 pm
thousands of documents under subpoena they were ultimately destroyed. if you think the fbi raid? do you think the fbi and department of justice held people accountable? they handed out immunity agreements like it was candy with no requirement they cooperate with congress or with the government. it is this double standard. how they treat trump versus how they administer justice. that's what gets me fired up and i think it makes millions of people so, so mad. >> raymond: the law should be treated the same way. statutes observed no matter who's offending them or embracing them. jason, i understand you also have something that you want to quickly clean her up from earlier. >> tuesday night i discussed the source of stacey abrams income and i have been informed that the allegations were the mistaken identity and not reported quickly. i regret the error and i appreciate the opportunity to clarify it. >> raymond: good on you for clarifying it. jason, thank you for being here. up next, i take a shot from

>> raymond: earlier this week actor mark wahlberg and his foundation and friends helped raise funds for kids via a celebrity golf tournament and i was slicing along with them. >> whoo! >> raymond: a few weeks ago i was asked to take part as a golfer here at the mark wahlberg foundation and beaumont children's hospital fund-raiser. here we are at the detroit golf club. there's only one problem. i haven't touched a golf club since i was 12 years old. maybe my pals can help.
7:37 pm
>> jim wahlberg runs the mark wahlberg youth foundation. >> tell me about the wahlberg foundation. where did this originate and why the emphasis on focus on you. >> first of all, thank you for coming out. thank you for your willingness to principate. raymond doesn't golf and he still came out and said i'll do my jerry lewis thing. i'll do whatever i have to do to support. it's beautiful and i appreciate it. the mark wahlberg foundation has been in existence for just about 20 years. our family priest came to us and said the roof is falling apart. it is the centerpiece of the community. i'm so we raised the necessary funds. it's a matter of responsibility. you are a successful person whether you're a movie star or a news anchor or a construction worker.

my family, my mother always made it a point to let us know that there was always going to be somebody that was struggling behind us and we needed to do all we could. >> raymond: the one or two things that i need to be mindful of? >> hit the ball. the ball is sitting there all by itself. all of a sudden your nerves. you've got to be composed. you've got to be stable. >> raymond: for stability, sugar ray works the links the way he worked the ring. >> i kind of break things down. i look at your weak points, your strong points. figure out the best way. find a way to break it down. >> raymond: don't do that. don't do that. [audio slowed down] >> does it hurt? >> raymond: know it doesn't hurt. this has got to be one of the

great honors of my life, being with the sugar ray leonard. the sugar ray. >> i feel more comfortable calling the sugar. you seem to be a bit almost there but not there. >> raymond: i am nutrasweet ray compared to you. don't get their way of those fists. i didn't realize, but i felt it. warned me next time. warned me. >> you've got to take care of yourself. >> raymond: evander holyfield offered me some advice. >> play with people who are better. this tournament. you're playing as a teen. >> raymond: surely actor kevin dolan will give me some golf tips. your father was the golf coach at fordham. what did he teach you?
7:40 pm
>> he told me mostly about the mental aspect of the game. he helped me with my swing. >> raymond: it was a focus. >> keep your cool. i have to throw global occasionally. i don't do it anymore. >> raymond: don't do it today, not in my direction. >> n keep your composure. >> it is marked that brings me here. he does great charities. any charity he does i try to get involved if i can. >> raymond: i would only do this for you, okay? the tip? >> pick up tennis. if you haven't played for that long, it is very difficult to get the game going. >> raymond: tell me what this foundation means to you. i know it started really is a call from your local priest. >> we just want to give back to kids growing up in similar situations. always a focus on inner-city

♪ ♪ >> oh therapy in the streets, very, very high potency. psychotic episode. psychotic episodes can be long-lasting and some can result in chronic effects. >> raymond: way to finally catch up, cnn. we have been warning you for months and laura has particularly about the dangers of high potency thc. now there's even more evidence. a recent study review published by lancet found that they use of higher potency cannabis was associated with an increased risk of psychosis and cannabis use disorder, also known as cud.
7:51 pm
joining me to discuss, dr. marc siegel, fox news medical contributor. thank you for being here. the potency has been rising for nearly half a century. some concentrates like dabs or wax are boasting 100% thc product. how dangerous are these products and derivatives? >> hi, raymond. very dangerous. even pointing out on this show the association with crime. it's not surprising that we have more evidence backing that up. the lancet article you talked about looked at 4,000 studies and narrowed it down to 20 that showed a direct correlation between two things. first, if you have a high concentration of thc which almost all marijuana has now, when we were kids, it was 1.52%. now it's 50% or more, people who use that high potency thc marijuana products, you know what happens, they get addicted much more easily and the more
7:52 pm
they use it, daily use often, the more the risk of psychosis. that can last. cannabis induced psychosis can last for a day or two unless you have already an underlying psychiatric problem. if you have a mental health disorder, anxiety disorder or schizophrenia or whatever it might be, it increases your risk that this will continue for months. huge problem. that's where the crime comes that you've been talking about. >> raymond: we are seeing the explosion of crime across the country in cities that legalized cannabis including the city we are in right now. i want to get him a new gallup poll, doctor. it says 16% of americans claimed they currently smoke marijuana, a new low of 11% of american adults report being cigarette smokers. it's great that cigarette use of down but it's the 16% marijuana use concerning to you given what you just said about psychosis?
7:53 pm
