  • ♪ ♪ ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY.

  • WELCOME BACK.

  • WE'RE BACK WITH THE CO-HOSTS OF "POD SAVE AMERICA," JON LOVETT,

  • TOMMY VIETOR, AND JON FAVREAU.

  • TOMMY, LAST MONTH, I HAD A CHANCE TO INTERVIEW

  • THEN-PRESIDENT-ELECT BIDEN, AND I ASKED HIM ABOUT HIS ABILITY TO

  • SORT OF CHANGE THE TONE AND GET ANYTHING DONE IN WASHINGTON.

  • AND HE SAID THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENT'S IMPACT ON THE BODY

  • POLITIC WILL FADE.

  • REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO FEEL THEY HAVE MUCH MORE ROOM TO RUN

  • AND COOPERATE.

  • DO YOU AGREE?

  • DO YOU THINK HIS INFLUENCE IS GOING TO FADE AND THE

  • REPUBLICANS WILL BE WILLING TO WORK ON ANYTHING TOGETHER WITH

  • THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION?

  • >> I HOPE PRESIDENT BIDEN IS RIGHT.

  • I'M WORRIED IT'S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT.

  • I THINK THAT TRUMP EMBOLDENED, LIKE, THIS RACIST, NATIONALIST,

  • PARANOID FACTION OF THE COUNTRY, AND THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE

  • REPUBLICAN PARTY JUST KIND OF SHRUGGED AT IT.

  • AND I THINK TRUMP-- HE CONSTRUCTED HIS OWN REALITY.

  • AND IF YOU DISAGREED WITH TRUMP, YOU WERE TREATED LIKE THE ENEMY.

  • AND SO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BECAME THE CULT OF TRUMP.

  • AND I THINK IT'S GOING TO TAKE A LOT OF COURAGE AND A LOT OF

  • TRUTH-TELLING BY REPUBLICANS TO CHANGE THAT.

  • AND SO FAR, WHAT WE'RE SEEING FROM REPUBLICANS, LIKE TED CRUZ

  • AND JOSH HAULY AND KEVIN McCARTHY, IS THAT THEY ARE

  • SCARED OF CROSSING TRUMP.

  • THEY'RE SCARED OF ANGERING THAT MAGA BASE.

  • AND THEY'RE NOT ALL THAT INTO TRUTH-TELLING.

  • I'M A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT THE FEVER BREAKING ANY TIME SOON.

  • >> Stephen: BUT ISN'T ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH A CONSTRUCTED

  • REALITY IS THAT IT'S A SOAP BUBBLE.

  • IF YOU TEST IT, IT JUST POPS IMMEDIATELY.

  • FOR INSTANCE, I MEAN, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE

  • IN-- IN "Q," AND THE THEORIES OF QANON, BUT IT TURNS OUT THE

  • MILITARY ISN'T SECRETLY GOING TO TURN ON ALL THE DEMOCRATS AND

  • ARREST THEM AND DONALD TRUMP WILL ASCEND AS GOD KING ON A

  • THRONE AND SAVE EVERYONE IN THE WORLD.

  • THAT IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING THAT IS BREAKING THE HEART OF PEOPLE

  • OUT■ç THERE ONLINE TODAY.

  • LIKE, ISN'T THERE SOME HOPE THAT IF YOU ARE CREATING SUCH A

  • STRANGE AND EXTREME REALITY, THAT IT CAN'T SURVIVE ONCE THE

  • SUPPOSED ALL-POWERFUL PERSON AT THE TOP IS GONE?

  • >> I HOPE YOU'RE RIGHT.

  • I MEAN, LISTEN, I THINK THAT-- I'M A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT THOSE

  • QANON ADHERNTS FINDING THE NEXT CONSPIRACY AND FOLLOWING THAT,■ç

  • AND NOT NECESSARILY SNAPPING BACK TO REALITY LIKE WE HOPE.

  • I HOPE PRESIDENT BIDEN IS RIGHT.

  • I HOPE WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET A LOT OF STUFF DONE, BUT I

  • WORRY.

  • I WORRY A LOT.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE, A COUPLE OF WHOM YOU

  • JUST MENTIONED.

  • WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK WILL HAPPEN WITH JOSH HAWL, "OR TED

  • CRUZ, OR MO BROOKS, THE PEOPLE WHO SUBORNED THE SEDITION?

  • >> THEY'LL RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) THAT'S WHAT JOSH HAWLEY AND TED

  • CRUZ WILL DO.

  • >> Stephen: IS THERE ANY PRICE TO BE PAID THERE?

  • >> THERE'S A PRICE TO BE PAID FOR REPUBLICANS WHO ARE EITHER

  • IN STATES THAT ARE PURPLE OR BLUE OR REPUBLICAN HOUSE MEMBERS

  • WHO ARE IN DISTRICTS THAT ARE COMPETITIVE.

  • BUT UNTIL WE DON'T HAVE GERRYMANDERED DISTRICTS WHERE

  • REPUBLICANS ARE MORE AFRAID OF A PRIMARY CHALLENGE FROM THE RIGHT

  • THAN THEY ARE OF A GENERAL ELECTION OPPONENT WHO IS A

  • DEMOCRAT, WE'RE GOING TO BE IN THIS SAME PLACE.

  • SO CAN JOE BIDEN PICK OFF A FEW REASONABLE REPUBLICANS ON A

  • PIECE OF LEGISLATION HERE AND THERE?

  • I SURE HOPE SO.

  • BUT THE PARTY HAS BEEN RADICALIZED.

  • THE BASE IS RADICALIZED.

  • AND THREAF BEEN RADICALIZED NOT JUST BY TED CRUZ AND JOSH HAWLEY

  • BUT FOX NEWS, AND RUSH LIMBAUGH.

  • AND AS LONG AS THAT EXISTS IN RADICALIZING THIS BASE, WE'RE

  • GOING TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, YOU GUYS HAVE SPENT THE LAST FOUR YEARS

  • DOING "POD SAVE AMERICA" AND BUILDING A POD EMPIRE THROUGH

  • "CROOKED MEDIA."

  • I'M SURE THERE WERE SOME LOW POINTS WHEN YOU THOUGHT MAYBE,

  • YOU KNOW, WE'RE NOT GOING TO POD SAVE ANYTHING.

  • BUT NOW THAT PART OF YOUR GOAL HAS BEEN ACHIEVED BY ENGAGING

  • THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS TO GO OUT THERE AND CAST THEIR VOTES,

  • WHAT'S NEXT NOW THAT THERE'S A DEMOCRAT BACK IN OFFICE?

  • WHENCE GO THE POD SAVERS?

  • >> LOOK, I THINK WE FELT INCREDIBLY LUCKY TO BE IN THE

  • FIGHT WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WORKED INCREDIBLY HARD OVER THE

  • LAST FOUR YEARS.

  • FOR ME, WHEN-- WHEN THINGS WERE DARKEST, WHEN THINGS WERE VERY

  • BAD, I WASN'T JUST HOPEFUL THAT THERE WOULD BE A LAST DAY TRUMP

  • WAS PRESIDENT.

  • I WAS HOPEFUL THERE WOULD BE A LAST DAY TRUMP WAS PRESIDENT,

  • AND WE'D ALL STILL BE PAYING ATTENTION.

  • FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME, IT WOULDN'T BE JUST ABOUT

  • WHAT WE STOPPED BUT ACTUALLY ABOUT DOING SOME GOOD.

  • AND NOW WE WON THE HOUSE.

  • WE TOOK THE GAVEL FROM PAUL RYAN.

  • WE BEAT MITCH McCONNELL, TOOK THE SENATE, WON THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • NOW WE HAVE A CHANCE TO DO SOME GOOD IF WE KEEP PAYING ATTENTION

  • AND WE KEEP FIGHTING.

  • >> Stephen: THANKS, GUYS.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • >> Stephen: NEW EPISODES OF "POD SAVE AMERICA" ARE RELEASED

  • MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS.

  • JON FAVREAU, JON LOVETT, AND TOMMY VIETOR, EVERYBODY!

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A SPECIL PERFORMANCE OF

  • "TOGETHER."
