We never shut down the way other countries did. Listen to Mark Shields and David Brooks analyze the political news of the week. And so you can get — I think that bill can be supported, and we can get $1.9 trillion out the door to the American people, but it's not going to be an easy lift. Some Republicans have really stood up, like Ben Sasse from Nebraska, but is the rest of the party really going to follow him? And there are a lot of issues on which that legislation can be passed, not everything. I see no reason why we should give people earning more than that those checks. And what about you, Ruth? So, David, where do we go from here? And I'd love to know what's in the head of normal, rational Republicans like John Thune, who we keep mentioning. Copy failed. Syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks join Judy Woodruff to discuss politics as a noble profession, optimism as a defining American characteristic, and collective sacrifice for the common good.

But it seems like Donald Trump and his supporters have been doing everything they can to make life harder for Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue and — in their argument that the Georgia election was rigged, so you can't trust the system, and their argument that you need to reelect these Republican senators, so they can go to Washington, back to Washington, and continue to block your $2,000 checks. And now, for the final Friday analysis of the Trump presidency, we turn to Brooks and Capehart. That is Brooks and Capehart. But Mike went back and looked at that speech this week, and he said, I — we could still count on an underlying unity to the country, and we could appeal to that in the inauguration. And so I think they were right to impeach.

And I never can permanently believe that America is a nation in decline, sliding, but it was certainly a year where decline seemed to be very much in the air. I think we all agree it's been a terrible year, thanks to the pandemic. It had to happen. Clip: 01/01/2021 | 12m 38s | Video has closed captioning. Shields and Brooks on politics in science, Biden's messaging. And so it means, going forward, the Republicans are going to do a lot of performative display of Trumpian unreality. There are some reports that, in the House, you could get over more than 100 House members siding with the Hawley side. And, David, what about going forward? I think it leaves the Republican Party as divorced from reality intact even in a post-Trump era. So, David, I'm going to give you the last word, unless you leave time for Jonathan again. But what do you — what are you taking away from it? And so we need to solve that problem. Now, having said that, I don't — I don't support it. In his final regular appearance on the NewsHour, we celebrate Mark Shields and his storied career in journalism and politics. But I think that Mitch McConnell has a point about the — and others — about the size of the checks, along with David and Larry Summers. He felt — he felt their pain. What we are now about to talk about in this country is about deep fissures and deep pain within this country that's centered around race. But government can perform better than our government performed for us. It's bad news for the future in the way that I was talking about earlier, in terms of just erasing norms of behavior and allowing just dangerous arguments to go forward. Brooks and Marcus on American politics in 2020 and its impact on Democracy from PBS NewsHour - Shields and Brooks on Podchaser, aired Friday, 1st January 2021. So, I see way fewer possibilities there. And I happen to think the Republican Party is reasonably well-poised, postured to do decently politically over the next few years. I have to say, emotionally, I feel, somehow, weirdly, that impeaching the president of the United States is still emotionally overshadowed by the events that happened on January 6 and by the turmoil that has been set off within families, within churches ever since. Season 2020 Episode 12/04/2020. New York Times columnist David Brooks and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart join Judy Woodruff to discuss the week in politics, including the rampage at the Capitol, President Trump's potential impeachment, and the future of the Republican Party. Well, first, I note the bipartisan sort of agreement on this between Josh Hawley on the right and Bernie Sanders on the left. Well, I'm thinking I'm usually the pessimist and David's usually the optimist. So, I — maybe we're switching roles in 2021 or something. New York Times columnist David Brooks and Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart join Judy Woodruff to discuss the week in politics, including President Trump’s historic impeachment, the fallout from the Capitol insurrection and President-elect Biden’s economic relief plan. But it is odd how the populist presidency that Trump could have had, if he'd really done populist things, is sort of on the floor of the Senate today. The Republican Party will find it very easy just to go in opposition mode. Shields and Brooks on danger of Trump’s refusal to concede. And so this is, in a way, a weird democracy in action, the Republican Party trying to figure itself out. We mark this momentous week with the next chapter in a "NewsHour" tradition. Well, our "NewsHour" friend Mike Gerson wrote George W. Bush's inaugural speech in 2001, and that was a bitterly divided election, if you remember 2000. And so it's very bad news for the country, because truth is one of the things we have lost this year. Please try again. We are reeling from it now. I mean, how much difference do you believe Joe Biden can make as president in what we face as a country? So, the impeachment happened, but we're still reeling as a nation in a way that seems to me somehow even larger than that. One is a more hopeful vision of the pandemic lessons, which is that good government, responsible leadership, capable management could have worked.

PBS NewsHour. I think it would be a very wise idea to give people who make under $60,000 those $2,000 checks. And so I think McConnell's mostly right on the merits. We could have done better. It should not be lost on anyone that those insurrectionists going up into the Capitol were Boogaloo Boys, Proud Boys, but they were also white supremacists. New York Times columnist David Brooks and Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty join Amna Nawaz to discuss the week in politics, including a … That was anarchy. Yes, I just think we — our legislative capacities are not very high right now. They're not going to listen, they're not going to attach to reality until they feel that somebody cares and sees and hears them. Is a trial necessary? And that's more or less what just happened. We could have, with a better president, who had assembled a better administration, and had taken this more seriously from the start, and had not failed at almost every step along the way — the one bright spot is the vaccine development, but now we're botching the rollout of it. Join PBS NewsHour with live coverage of Inauguration Day 2021 on PBS stations nationwide beginning at 10:30 am ET on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.

What are your sources, what's your reporting telling you? And it's not just about the Republican Party, the people who are supporting Trump, but, surely, they are part of it, because they're going to figure out where they are now, where they stand now.

And yet he's pretending that something is true that he has to know is not true because it plays to his base. © 1996 - 2021 NewsHour Productions LLC.

And so a lot of people, especially in the Senate, want to have votes. I think it'd be a bad thing to have to trial in the Senate. Sure.

It's got a child tax — care tax credit. It's got up to the $2,000 check. Now we're going back to our usual corners, because I am a sort of "glasses three-quarters empty and not one-quarter full" person when it comes to the capacity of President Biden to get things through this Senate, certainly if Mitch McConnell and Republicans retain control of the Senate. Where does this leave him and the Republican Party? And that's hard for a party to expunge. It's a complete denial of reality. This is not the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning. Please try again. That is New York Times columnist David Brooks and Jonathan Capehart, columnist for The Washington Post. And it's bad news for the future. There are serious conversations that need to be had within the Republican Party and also within — among people, as David was talking about, who are conservative and who support the Republican Party and support their candidates and their leaders. Copy failed. Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, PBS NewsHour And we certainly are not doing it now. He's siding with the president — he's spoken up and said he's going to be the senator — so far, the only one — who has said he's going to object to the electors being counted for Joe Biden next week. I think the possibilities for success in a Biden presidency rest within what's within his control in the executive branch, undoing some of the terrible damage that Trump has done, undoing regulations, passing new regulations, enacting executive orders, to the extent that he has the authority to do that. Shields and Brooks on RBG's legacy, Trump's voting rhetoric. Well, the polls have ticked up for both Democrats. And so he's got this $1.9 trillion COVID relief. And so we sort of let each other down.

David Brooks: Well, our "NewsHour" friend Mike Gerson wrote George W. Bush's inaugural speech in 2001, and that was a bitterly divided election, if you remember 2000. He wrote a very fine book on Alexander Hamilton. So, there may be consequences, I guess, from Donald Trump as he continues to thunder. PBS NewsHour.

And if that's not an impeachable offense, then nothing is. And the executive branch can't just go off inciting riots to take over the legislative branch. PBS NewsHour. I care about you. And you now have a Senate that seems to be open to an impeachment trial. And doing a pretty confrontational and violent — not a violent, but a confrontational impeachment, at the same time we're trying to pass a very complicated, and a lot of resistance legislation, I just think that's too heavy a lift from us. David Brooks and Jonathan Capehart on Trump and the military. I think it was the one thing — the one big attribute that he had that was his calling card in this election, that he was someone who, when he spoke and people looked at him, they felt in their bones that he felt in their bones whatever issue that was hurting them.

NEW YORK — Add Garth Brooks to the lineup of entertainers at the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. PBS NewsHour. But I think, when we read about this in the history books, that folks will see that it was a necessary thing, not just to hold President Trump accountable for inciting people to insurrection to try to overthrow the American government, but to send a signal to anyone who might come after Donald Trump to signal to them that, if you try to do the same thing, that there will be consequences. Larry Summers, the — Barack Obama and Bill Clinton's economist, says there's some danger of overheating the economy if we do that. But the first thing Joe Biden needs to do is, he needs to show physically, materially, he cares about people who think they — he despises them. The early voting in kind was more in support of the Democratic side. We just have had messing up at every single level. The Friday discussion segments will be known as Brooks & Capehart, and will be moderated by NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff. And this is my first time disagreeing with my friend David. I am very nervous about the consequences of that, not for Joe Biden, who will be sworn in as president on January 20, but for how it just shakes our norms going forward and makes the unimaginable more imaginable. It's got all these physical manifestations of government saying, this is a hard time. So, I guess we're going to have it. And we have a president coming in who is going to inherit this mess, which is a lot harder to clean up than it is — was to — is to ameliorate from the beginning.

And Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, Ruth, stopping it dead in its tracks. B, it'll stoke all the flames. And, so far, within the Republican Party, that has just gone like that. And talk about a person who is the person for the time. Mitch McConnell says no. PBS NewsHour. And these are — this has to be done physically, not just with words. And I remain a Biden optimist, a Biden optimist in terms of how much he can actually get done. John Hagee, a very Trumpy pastor in Texas, said, that was not patriotism.

Ruth, what are you thinking as we close the door on 2020? It airs seven nights a week and is known for its in-depth coverage of issues and current events. It is necessary, for what I said — the reason I said before, because of the message it would send to someone who might try what President Trump did in the future. What about the move to impeach and about where we are left as a country after January 6? The Susan Collinses and others of the world notwithstanding, this is a body and a political system, more broadly, that rewards obstructionism, and through the primary process is only going to reward obstructionism. The Friday evening "Shields & Brooks" discussion segment, like the "NewsHour" in its entirety, is a product of a more genial period in American politics. I think the move to impeach was necessary. That doesn't seem like a winning argument to me. And, David, what about right now? Too often, during the four long years of the Trump presidency, Republican lawmakers, especially in the Senate, have been able to avoid taking a stand on some of the outrageous things that he's doing. But, somehow — we need two responsible parties, and that's part of the job. Fixed iFrame Width: in pixels px Height: in pixels px. Joe Biden has to pass that legislation.

Like, what's going on in that guy's head as he sees Hawley do this?
