Republican Strategist Charles Reinke Gets Caught Contradicting Himself

-President Trump
recently demanded that the Department of Justice
investigate whether the FBI placed spies inside
Trump’s presidential campaign. Some are saying
this is an abuse of power, while others are saying
the President has a right to look into it. Here to discuss, please welcome
Republican strategist Charles Reinke, everyone. [ Cheers and applause ] Hey, Charles. -Ah. Thanks for having me, Seth. -Thank you, Charles,
for being here. How many times have you been
on the show now? -This is my 10th time.
-Wow. 10 times. Always a pleasure. Now, Charles, you believe
that the President is within his rights to ask
the Department of Justice for an investigation? -Yes, in this case,
the executive branch has the duty to interfere
with the judicial branch. -But you said
the exact opposite before. -[ Chuckles ] That’s not true. -No. You said it on this show.
Let’s take a look at the tape. -Seth, if there’s one thing
I firmly believe, it’s that the executive branch should never, ever interfere
with the judicial branch. And I’ll never waiver on that. [ Laughter ] Seth, okay, that is so unfair. -But those are
your words, right? -Yes, yes, but it’s just — it’s just cheap to show a clip
of someone contradicting themselves
in the middle of a conversation. -Really?
-Yes. -Because that’s not
what you said the last time
you were on the show. Let’s look at the tape. -Seth, if you ever have tape of a person
contradicting themselves, you need to show a clip of them
immediately. And it should be in the middle
of a conversation. [ Laughter ] Okay.
That — That was so long ago. -That was three months ago. -I — You can change your mind
in three months. -Can you?
Let’s look at the tape. -Three months is not enough time
to change your mind. Period! -Is that a new mustache? -Yes, and I’m never
shaving it off! [ Laughter ] Okay. You know, this is
typical “gotcha” media. -Look, I’m just using your
own words to prove a point. It’s completely fair to do that. -Seth, what you’re doing
is manipulating my words and taking them out of context. If I said, “I don’t believe
in climate change,” you could probably find
some vague, generic clip that kind of makes it sound like
I do believe in climate change. -Oh, like this one? -I, Charles Reinke, believe
in climate change 100%. I could have been
talking about anything. -Roll the tape. -I am only talking about
one thing — climate change! Well, maybe I was saying that
on Opposite Day. -Roll it!
-I am saying this on Mean Exactly
What You Say Day! Okay.
Is this your game, Meyers? Everything I say,
you have a clip to counter it? If I would say,
“I never wear chef’s hats,” you’d have, like, a clip of me
wearing a big, old chef hat? I — I don’t have
a clip of that. I got this picture, though. [ Laughter ] -Now… that could —
that could be anybody. -That is not anybody.
-Yeah. So what’s your
point here, Meyers? -My point is that
political pundits like you don’t seem to really stand
for anything anymore. You keep changing your position
based on what you think will play with your base. -So, that’s why you
brought me on this show? Just to make a point?
-Yes. Because I became a comedian
so I could expose the truth. -Really?
Let’s look at the tape. -I became a comedian so that
I could get the best tables at fancy restaurants. -Gotcha!
-Son of a bitch! -Yes!
-Charles Reinke, everyone!

    And that is how democracy dies, truth is a joke and the president actually says "Don't believe what you read and hear." Ha ha ha…just go out and buy something you don't need, with money you don't have to distract yourself with something you don't like. … American heaven.

    A vote for Democrats is a vote for illegals, muslim brotherhood, BLM, black panthers, billions for Welfare, Sanctuary cities, higher taxes, more homeless, protection for gangs and criminals, open borders, massive corruption, confiscation of your guns that keep you safer, lots of poop on sidewalks Fascism, more racism, and more division. Basically if you vote Democrat you are a traitor to America, and its sovereignty. Dont be that person. Liberals are the ultimate hypocrites. Thank god for the internet it is proven for the ages.

    The best seats at fancy restaurants? Like a seat near the AC and not the doorway? If your restaurant is seating near the entrance doorway or kitchen entrance, you should sell all your possessions and give the funds raised to pizza rat. He has real needs, and not a thin veiled smile rigged of scandalous acts to make money at every piece of existence.

    Ok, that was clever, I liked that and liked that he played along. Like the mustache and chefs hat parts.

    Here’s how sad the news can be ‘sometimes’. This was clearly a skit where they played off each other and had some fun. Like I said before, this was good. But I actually stumbled across actual news articles about how Seth caught him in his lies. Haven’t been paying attention and had to Google who Charles Reinke was 😐
