Transcript for Georgia candidate Michael Williams' campaign ad features 'deportation bus'
We were talking about civility in politics before, which is noticeably absent in state senator Michael Williams' campaign ad for governor. We have our bus tour ready to go, but it won't be one of the pansy political bus tours. We have the deportation bus. We're going to implement my deportation plan that will fill this bus with illegals to send them back where they came from. We're not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state. We're going to put them on this bus and send them home. If you are as tired as I am with politicians that do nothing but talk, and you want to see this bus filled with illegals, vote Michael Williams on may 22nd. So I mean -- these are the things that make me uncivil. These are the things that make me berserk because you can say, listen. This is how I feel, but this is, like, it's meant to make you crazy, and for me it's, like, looking at this through a kid's eyes. Oh, it's scary. And it's -- to me, I wouldn't want anybody doing that to a child, you know? I don't want somebody thinking that their mom or dad is a molester and by the way, you might want to look up the spelling. I mean it's just -- but these are the kinds of things thank you are making people kind of -- slightly making it impossible to have a conversation. Because it's the opposite of reality. Immigration is trending downward right now. There are fewer immigrants coming here than they used to come. This by the way, is pulling a 3%. Say that again in last place. He is in last place. He has 3% popularity, this idiot. That statistically could be a negative too. 5% margin of error. You could be a negative 2%. That's good because that means the message isn't resonating with the majority of folks in Georgia, and I think that's a really good thing. Fear mongering is also leaving the conversation. So if you wanted to make good points about sanctuary cities or talking points, we could sit here. When you go to rrapists, murderers and misspell molesters, you're in a desperate position. Desperate candidates pull publicity stunts and people stay local and don't win for a reason because they can't come up with anything to talk about. It's a stunt, and it's being rounded up as we sit here. I couldn't defend something like this, but I think desperate people who want to make a name for themselves in, like, far alt-right places and now we're talking about it on "The view." So whatever. Say that again? You want to get publicity in any way you can if you are desperate and you're crazy. But is that the route that politics is taking? Yes. Because it seems that this -- people will say anything, put anything out in order to get some sort of -- Was it Gandhi that said you have to be the change you want to see in the world? That's where you have to take the higher road. More of us have to light up and try to bring back what was originally part of this conversation when it came to politics. It started in 2016 during the presidential campaign. People realized, my goodness. You can say, and call Mexicans rapists and murderers. You can say, you know, all these outrageous, uncivilized, ugly things and still be elected president of the United States. Make fun of gold star families. Grabbing women genitalia. The mantra. It became the model. It's embedded in our minds now. You'll never get rid of those words. I still think people, even today, I think they are decent and good and want the best for our country. I don't pretend -- I'm not a psychologist, and I don't understand the psychology behind it and I'm deeply offended. Some people hear laurel. That's the problem. Can I say one thing really? Everybody like I said, and I'm not trying to make this about me, but it's worth noting. This show -- I don't agree with any of the ladies on basically anything. That's not true. That's so not true. And the support and kindness I get from you, joy Behar, and the affection. I appreciate it. America can be like this. It doesn't have to be that. You agree with a lot of stuff we say, and we agree with you. I mean on sort of -- I believe on a different way the government should be run, but there is a respect level here. We have civilized discourse. Yes. It is. It is possible. It is possible. It's been going on. On this show -- tomorrow we have a Republican coming on. We always have respectful conversations. Because the bottom line is we're not all the same. We don't all think the same, but we're much closer in what we want for the country than most people think, and particularly with this show people tend to say, well, you know, those women. Those, you know, we're -- we are a really interesting mix of what's out in the country, you know? Some people are -- no one is all black and white. No one is -- it's a mix. Black or white. And speaking of which, we have stuff to talk to you about when we come back.
