tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  January 18, 2017 9:00pm-10:01pm PST

9:00 pm
i'm bill o'reilly, please remember the spin stops here. we are definitely looking out for you. ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight," we are fewer than 40 hours away from trump's inauguration. friday's festivities continue to grow by the moment, as of right now, 68 house democrats are ditching trump's inauguration. some say they oppose his policies, other ones insist they do not agree with his entire presidency. it is not legitimate in their opinion. congressman, thank you for coming on. >> thank you very much. >> tucker: you just got elected and now you are boycotting. how come? >> a couple reasons, first and foremost, i believe that the president-elect does not share
9:01 pm
the same aspect around the affordable care act which is basically for the constituents i represent, it's very important. secondly, about the russian hacking. i think that also to be taken seriously. thirdly about the congressman john lewis, he in the city of philadelphia received the liberty medal, celebration of the constitution a couple weeks ago. the very same medal that jimmy carter, colin powell, nelson mandela received. at the very end of the day, the president-elect will be sworn in. this is an opportunity for me to send that message that i am not happy. >> tucker: i understand that and i understand your reasoning. you don't agree with trump on obamacare and you are concerned about the russian interference of the election. that bothers you. would anyone who disagrees with
9:02 pm
john lewis on a political issue get the same treatment from you? >> look, john lewis is a hero in this country. he should not have been attacked the way he was attacked. >> tucker: i'm not attacking john lewis, he's an elected official, he has been for 30 years. if i didn't agree with something he said, does that make me a villain? >> but to say that he is not demonstrated any action, i believe that is the wrong message. he has demonstrated a lot of action in terms of things he's done. to make those common charges are ridiculous to say those things about john lewis and what he has done. i think people have been over the board. the person who's going to become the next president of the united states, in my particular view, we should trying to bring people together not separating them. >> tucker: fair point. i don't think that the president-elect should've tweeted that. my understanding is he was making a statement about congressman lewis' district,
9:03 pm
which is not of rich district. it has a lot of problems and he was saying look, you represent this district and you have for all these years and it still is in rough shape. maybe that says something. i want to ask you, since you also represent a heavily poor district in philadelphia, if you think boycotting the inauguration will help your constituents. and if so, how? >> at the end of the day, he will be president of all americans. the election is over. the reality is we should work together. we don't work together, as president of the united states, i've been in the legislature for years, legislators and executives should work together. i've never seen a chief executive attack a legislator for speaking out. the governors right here in pennsylvania. we work together, we got things done. if that is that we always had to agree on policy.
9:04 pm
at the end of the day, the name of the game is putting people first. i don't believe that that is what he has done. >> tucker: i wonder if there's been a situation where legislators have attacked the executive before he's taken office. that's what you're doing. you are saying i'm not even going to your inauguration because i disagree with you and he's not even the president yet. >> i am there and meeting my obligations for the united states congress, i work in the 65 days i've been there, working together to make a difference. look, president-elect trump will be sworn in on friday at 12:00. once he is sworn in, maybe the fact of the matter is, he will take a different attitude once he officially has the position as president. then we can find some common ground and get some things done. he talks about infrastructure, i am a strong advocate for infrastructure. that needs to happen. roads, bridges, airports. >> tucker: that's a good point.
9:05 pm
so you have a majority black district. it's one of the most heavily black congressional districts in the country. the trump campaign released sometime ago the new deal for black americans, the ten-point plan. what did you think of that? >> i haven't really seen it, i'd be open to see exactly what he is talking about. >> tucker: stop, what you mean you haven't seen it? it just released a ten-point plan and you haven't seen it, oh why? >> let me repeat it again to you, if i've seen it, i'd be more than happy to discuss it. i've not seen it. i'm not going to make up something i've not seen. >> tucker: i'm not asking you to. let's just stop for one second. why wouldn't you have seen that? you represent a majority black district. don't you think you should have read that? >> may be because he has not provided it to me. >> tucker: what you mean, it's
9:06 pm
on the internet? you don't have to agree with it or not. by when you make an effort to find out what he is saying? >> that's mutual. that's mutual. >> tucker: i mean, come on. >> it has not come up for a vote. it had not come up for a vote. you just said he has a plan, i'm saying to you specifically, i would be more than happy. he is the first one to say it. >> tucker: i'm not trying to convince you that trump is great, i'm not making a case for trial. i'm saying you are boycotting him on the grounds that he has a bad guy in maybe not legitimate. >> no, i'm not. please don't put words in my mouth. >> tucker: i am merely saying, a simple question. why have you not taken the time to find out what he is saying?
9:07 pm
and let me just run through a few of these things. >> do you want me to tell you what he has said? well, no, i've read his comments. >> tucker: your constituents are overwhelmingly poor. >> you should do your research. i am for charter schools. it has a union based charter school. do your research and find out -- i led the charge here in pennsylvania. >> tucker: that's perfect, i'm finding common ground between you and the new president. >> let's talk about the health plan. >> tucker: you disagree on the aca, that's true. can you stop for one second? you are trying to filibuster and i'm trying to ask you questions. you are not going to stop, are
9:08 pm
you? i'm just trying to tell you that this new president who you disagree with, has something that you agree on. are you against the rebuilding of infrastructure? >> i just said to you earlier that i was for infrastructure. >> tucker: or for financial reform to get young african-americans credit? >> i'm for that too. >> tucker: i'm merely here to say you want to find common ground, you haven't bothered to read what the guy has said, i'm throwing some hints at you. >> try not to put words in my mouth is what i am saying. >> tucker: i don't mean to do that. i'm just asking questions. >> i said to you very specifically, we have a hospital. a safety net hospital. they have 8,000 employees, it
9:09 pm
would be a direct effect if the act is repealed. that's 8,000 people that work in the hospital. >> tucker: we will find out. it's a matter of seeking common ground. >> exactly. >> tucker: great to see you tonight. >> thank you for inviting me, tucker. >> tucker: the senate held a hearing today for four of trump's cabinet nominees. there were many contentious moments. we are joined by trace gallagher. hey, trace. >> the most combative was for congressman tom price, donald trumps health and human services. price is a big opponent of obamacare and a big supporter of privatizing medicare. he was hammered on both fronts. first, democrats repeatedly challenged price on repealing the affordable care act. if millions americans will find themselves uninsured. watch. >> nobody is interested in pulling a rug out from anybody. we believe it is absolutely imperative for people who have
9:10 pm
coverage to keep coverage and hopefully to greater choices and greater opportunities to get the kind of coverage they want for themselves and their families. >> as for donald trump would live up to his pledge not to cut medicare, tom price believes he was telling the truth but could not offer assurances. then came the hearing for scott pruitt, chosen to head the epa. he is from one of the biggest oil and gas estates, is a fierce critic and skeptic of climate change science. he defended his position that government regulation with hurting business and development but also differed from the president when it came to defining climate change. >> do you agree that global warming is a hoax? >> i do not. >> so you disagree with the president? >> i do not believe that climate change is a hoax.
9:11 pm
>> south carolina governor nikki haley was challenged on some of the president-elect previous statements. when asked about a muslim registry, she said it is not going to happen. then she was accused of misinterpreting the iran nuclear deal, haley reminded us of the dangers posed by iran. then she said this about russia. >> they are trying to show their muscle right now. it is what they do. i think we always have to be cautious, i don't think that we can trust them. >> finally, trims pick for congress wilbur ross picked up his confirmation hearing by going after china, saying they talk much more about free trade than they actually practice. we have just learned that the president-elect will choose former georgia governor sonny perdue as a nominee for the secretary of u.s. department of agriculture. >> tucker: the last puzzle piece falls into play, trace gallagher. thanks a lot.
9:12 pm

"huffington post" writer. he joins us from los angeles. thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me, tucker. >> tucker: how does this work exactly? the rest of a sort of assume
9:17 pm
once you are in the presidentiak election, you get to be president. but you say no? >> well, my argument is that 66 million americans voted for hillary clinton, she won the popular vote by 3 million. about 2.1%. there are legitimate questions to the way that donald trump won the election. particularly with regard to the russian interventionism and fbi director james comey's letter to congress the week before the election that was meant to bring about questions of criminal wrongdoing. it shows how it had an impact on the outcome of themi election, late-breaking or late deciding voters decided they would vote for donald trump in a way that skewed the election for him. >> tucker: i wouldn't doubt that at all. the russian thing. the reason i wanted to talk to
9:18 pm
you, you had a thing about the russian issue in "the huffington post." it was widely read. one of the bullet points you gave on there, i think it was number 3, you put up a page from a magazine in 1987 that you said shows and at this piece claims that donald trump was 30 years ago recruited by the soviets to run for the united states. you know what executivee intelligence review is? >> it's a news publication, eir, they have lots of archives, stories of going back through the days. that articles detailing -- go on. >> tucker: do you know who publishes this? it's the linden larouche cult, the anti-semitic cult. >> i am >> tucker: you put up as your
9:19 pm
evidence, this piece of propaganda from the a linden larouche newsletter. why did you put a scientology source? do you really think that's a legitimate news source? >> you are the editor-in-chief of the of "the daily caller," for a decade called into question barack obama's legitimacy as a president, basee on -- >> tucker: i'm not saying that. >> are you saying you are an illegitimate journalist? you had some pretty racist, terrible junk on that web site. >> tucker: name one. >> let's google it, there is a lot. since 1987, donald -- >> tucker: you are posting that source is legitimate.
9:20 pm
>> he is been taking all-expenses-paid trips to russia, on the russian government and then claims to the united states government, populace, that he has no relationship with russia, knows nothing about russia. >> tucker: i just read your piece, alex. >> that is what i'm saying in the piece. i he has lied, to the american people and been very dishonest. >> tucker: you are saying the soviets chose him for president. you're going to stand by that. >> you're going to have to reread the article. give it a reread. >> tucker: i'm tempted to end this right now because you are saying linden larouche is a legitimate news source. >> that's not what i'm saying. let me just say something. no, no, i don't say that you are a crappy journalist because of
9:21 pm
"the daily caller."se i'm saying there is a piece -- >> tucker: it's a piece by a lunatic, alex. >> and "the daily caller" is a very racist, offensive right wing publication. do you see my point? >> tucker: your point is let me ask you one last question. this is a philosophical one. >> you are trying to conflate the publication and then have me be responsible for it. >> tucker: a philosophical question. you say we need to remove donald trump from the presidency for the sake of democracy. you had over 60 million people vote for him and you are saying one judge or a panel of judges removing him will be more democratic than the election results. that seems like the opposite. >> it is found that there was
9:22 pm
wrongdoing such as collusion with the russian government to hack our election or with s the fbi director who released a letter that he knew was bogus. >> tucker: the idea that people think a crackpot like you who throw something out there -- >> excuse me?le >> tucker: shame on "the huffington post." >> you are calling me a crackpot. >> tucker: i was trying to listen. you are alleging things that you can't know. >> because of this constant partisanship, i am frustrated. this constant partisan squabbling. democrat versus republican. >> tucker: you are a democratic political operative.
9:23 pm

9:27 pm
adventurism in the middle east. many republicans on capitol hill though have a very different vision of world affairs. one of the most assertive voices on foreign policy is senator lindsey graham of south carolina. he joins us here on the set in washington. senator, good to see you. >> congratulations. i am glad to see someoneou got picked. >> tucker: donald trump has basically said we don't want to have conflict with russia until we have to because it would not serve our interests. d you have said we need to hit them hard. why would that serve vital american interests? >>ou great question. number one, what russia did in our election did not change the outcome, donald trump is a legitimate president. clinton lost because she was a bad candidate. trump won because he is the agent of change. it was not because of the russians did, but what they try to do is interfere in our election, and what they are doing all over the world is try to break the backbone of democracy. if you give putin your screaming weakness, remember the redline? you betterr not cross this redline, i'm coming after you
9:28 pm
with assad. obama did nothing. if you forgive putin for what he has done in our election, he will be on steroids, it's the worst possible thing he could do to reset relationships with russia. you need to smack him in the i face.hi i don't want to war with russia, but i want them to pay a priceat in how they are undermining our democracy. and what they are doing all over the world to other democracies. >> tucker: you obviously were here for the iran deal. >> a lousy deal. >> tucker: millions of dollars trying to spy on us, they basically lobbied for their positions on that. we are close with all those countries, i think we deserve to be or should be. how is that different? >> we pay lobbyists to represent your interests, israel does it. a lot of foreign countries come to capitol hill. they'll say will you do a, b, or c. they hacked into a political
9:29 pm
party. they did it to the republicans. the backbone is, when you compromise one party come you compromise all. >> tucker: the israelis and the saudi's, spied on us during that period they do inside information it was in the press. about the deliberations over the iran deal. so why what russia did isn't uniquely bad? >> in my view, it's because what you did is you hacked into a political party. you gave that information to a foreign entity called wikileaks and it was used in a fashion to undermine confidence in our election. that's a redline you should never allow any foreign nation to cross. it's fundamentally different than someone coming up and asking me to do a or b, it destroys democracy. let me tell you what they did in georgia. when they invited crimeans to shut down the parliament
9:30 pm
web site, and estonia, when they took a statue of lenin down, the russians cut off the power in the capital of estonia. this has to stop. if you give russia a pass, you are screaming if you give putin a pass on this, the iranians, the chinese are sizing us up. what if kellyanne conway's emails are hacked? >> tucker: sure, i am against hacking. >> what would you say? >> tucker: i don't know, and any country that breaks into the computers in the united states and affects either commerce or congress is bad. they broke into the whites house computer system in the obama administration and shut it down. >> don't be like obama. don't do what obama did, don't give every bad thug or dictator a pass. it is now time to reset the
9:31 pm
relationship with russia. more hard-hitting than obama.ip obama threw a pebble at pruden. i want to throw a rock. >> tucker: why don't you throw a rock at china? >> count me in. troops on the border. they are seizing islands on the others instead of resolving disputes, they are actually building military bases. trumps right about this. he wants to push back. tools in the toolbox, i don't want to go to war with anybody. i'm not going to continue with the weakness we had for the last eight years. the best way to get america back in good standing is to have a president who will tell our enemie peril and tell our friends it's okay to be a friend of america. the baltic states who live in the shadow of russia, they are scared to death of russia.
9:32 pm
georgia and ukraine have been dismembered by russia because obama sat on the sidelines and didn't do a damn thing about it. those states need to end. >> tucker: a lot of americans are saying that that's all true, the one getting bullied. if you have a 19-year-old son like i do, why should i be pleased at the prospect of him losing his life to defend ukraine or crimea? >> if you join the military, you do so wide open. i don't want a war with russia. let me tell you, the last time we let one power, one country in europe start gobbling up the rest of europe, we had world war ii. he is what i can tell you. >> tucker: putin is hitler? >> he is taking land by others by force. if you excuse that, where does it stop? >> tucker: china took tibet. >> we are not going to war with tibet. are you okay with him taking the crimea? >> tucker: no, but --ar it's a question of what it's worth to us.
9:33 pm
>> i don't want to live in a world where someone can take something from somebody else because they can. i don't want to live in a world where people wantod to be freedr oppressed and kicked around by bullies. putin kills his enemies, literally. he has destroyed every instrument of democracy inside of russia. he is exporting putin's him all over the planet. he is partnered up with assad, p to kill syrians. what does that matter to us? they're going to go throughout the world. i want young syrians to believe america is their friend, not their enemy. >> tucker: syria was about 10% christian, maybe a little bit more, if you're going to take a poll of christian syrians? how profound it do you think this would be for the assad regime? >> he said i'm here to help christians. the bottom line is what assad is done, he's taken every voice of opposition and extinguished it through the use of force. the arabs are out in the streets
9:34 pm
of damascus, more socially dressed. i don't want to live in a country where a few people get everything and everybody else get nothing. >> tucker: i'm asking about the largest christian populations in the middle east which have been destroyed by the civil war. no one in the united states has said much about it. they are very formally pro assad. he protected >> not uniformly. close. i met with him not long ago. p here's the deal. the best thing happened for syria when they decided the leaders are not the russians or iranians. the iranians have toppled four arab capitals. what does that mean to us?ll if you allow iran to develop and eco-weapon, i think he will do that. if you allow him to turn the middle east upside down, it will hurt us. hezbollah is supported by assad. if they dominate damascus and put their puppet assad in power, they're never going to accept
9:35 pm
that and israel is in a world of -- >> tucker: no offense, but the assad has been empowered for a long time. the assad family. supported by the iranians. that is the status quo, and it was a peaceful country in which americans could travel and christians were safe. now it's a disaster. is the free syrian army and the answer? >> it was four years ago, it isn't now. the people of syria rose up and it said we want a better government, a country without the assad family controlling everybody and everything. they did the same in egypt. the arab spring isn't real. >> tucker: the arab spring? >> i think the arab spring was mismanaged by obama. when the iranian people rose up in 2009, and the young lady out in the streets, obama, are you with us or them? he said, i don't want to disturbed the relationship. what would ronald reagan have done? he would have sided with that young girl.
9:36 pm
at a moment in time we have taken the ayatollah and run them out of this country, obama gave him a pass. you know what i fear more than the russians? the iranians with an eco-weapon. in 2009, his own people stood up to him and we basically sat on the sidelines and watch them be slaughtered. what does it matter to america? it matters a lot to me to stand up for our freedoms. not just for ourselves but for others. when it comes to dictators, thugs, dictators, zealots, we don't have to fight them here. fight them there. >> tucker: if we apply the same standards to saudi arabia and georgia, where would we be? >> they are not our enemy. >> tucker: thank you, thanks for joining us, senator. >> loved it, more to come. >> tucker: up next, famous people in hollywood have used the inauguration to make it clear that monolithic liberalism is the only acceptable worldvie worldview. everyone else must be crushed. tammy bruce will explain how hollywood is like a cult in that way. entering "the friend zone," the
9:37 pm
good one, not the bad one. and not a moment too soon. my business was built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
9:38 pm
9:39 pm
9:40 pm
this is the rx...elevated. rx hybrid and rx f sport. get up to $5,000 customer cash on select 2016 models. see your lexus dealer.
9:41 pm
>> tucker: you actually lived through the blacklist era, have you ever seen this kind of social pressure on performers? >> never, never. i swear, out of the 61 years that i was in the business, i n will be 82 this year, i have never in my life -- i never thought i would see something like this. this is mind-boggling. >> tucker: the great sam moore, you just heard him say, the ideological reinforcers are out. hollywood has always tilted left obviously, but now performers can even get away withog being politically neutral. anything less than hostility towards donald trump's crimes think, punishable by death or lisa thought of threatening tweets. tammy bruce, good to see her. it sort of an obvious question,
9:42 pm
i thought the whole thing of being an artist once you think for yourself. stand alone if need be.. you're seeing the stifling conformity right in the heart of the artistic community. why is that? >> it's fascinating, creativity requires a free mind. it is destroying hollywood right now, the "vanity fair" performance -- the worst ticket sale in 100 years. their product reflects it. once at theea heart of this though, is recognizing the failure of the industry, and they are hoping for a larger federal government that they were hoping for under hillary clinton we would have bailouts, effectively the nationalization of the industry like they were thinking they are going to get with health care. which is what europe does. the european federal government paid for the bills, theyiz nationalize television and all you have to do is cozy up to
9:43 pm
politicians. here now, it's about dealing with the american people. meryl streep doesn't like him very much. but when you are alluding to end what we see are people like nicole kidman, a fabulous actress, just recommending unity to an english journalist. she then had to come back and clarify what she meant in saying that we should support the president-elect no matter who it is. jennifer holliday facing death threats, obscene references regarding race to get her to quit and agreed upon concert for the inaugural. they are trying to enforce a liberal point of view that they were hoping would resume in washington. it's like a cult. everybody's got to have the same dynamic, the same groupthink ine order for leadership to survive. >> tucker: boy, i never even considered the plan you just noted, taxpayers would be subsidizing leonardo dicaprio's plane. he really get the sense listening to actors in hollywood that they believe they have an obligation that will never end, to support their work.
9:44 pm
this will never go away. there is no normal obligation that a retailer has to his or her customers to kind of like not yell at them. you know what i mean? >> when you have an attitude, i know a lot of a-list individuals who've talk to me about, they don't agree with what is going on but even if they speak up in the attacks, and nicole kidman's signal to those a-listers, we will attack you as well. you are not immune to what we expect from you. they decided they are either going to be silent or they are going to pretend. what i tell all of my listeners and i would tell your viewers, not all of hollywood agrees with this, but it is a cultlike dynamic where people feel like there's no way out, no other way to do their art and that they have to acquiesce. it is pretty frightening for them and of course, for the nation, we are rejecting it, we are rejecting the product. it also doesn't allow accretive people to be themselves.
9:45 pm
>> tucker: exactly. you can't create art under those circumstances, just propaganda. tammy, great to see you tonight. that was super interesting. ihop has been in damage control mode after its twitter account ripped hillary clinton's campaign from the left. wow. then, the great maria bartiromop is on our set in "the friend zone." go away at your peril. "the fr." "the fr." go away at your
9:46 pm
9:47 pm
9:48 pm
and they're absolutely right. they say that it's hot... when really, it's scorching. and while some may say the desert is desolate... we prefer secluded. what is the desert? it's absolutely what you need right now. absolutely scottsdale.

>> tucker: in time now for "the friend zone," we would invite one of our friends was in the building here at fox, we are here with maria bartiromo. down from new york city.
9:50 pm
great to see you. you've been in washington like, a day, who have you talked with? you just got here. and that's who you were interviewing. who is that? >> churchill, roosevelt. >> tucker: you are saying your spouses don't even have to be alive? >> we went to the madame tussauds wax it was just a kick. they have some fantastic wax figures. there is ronald reagan and nancy, they unveiled this is what we are going to do tomorrow, there it is. the new donald trump wax figure. it was really good. >> tucker: it looks just like trump. >> doesn't it? same height. it takes about five months to do. going into the election. >> tucker: who is that next to trump? >> my friend, joe piscopo.
9:51 pm
we're doing this tomorrow on my show. >> tucker: when you wind up in a wax museum with the wax donald trump, do everything, my life is not what i thought? >> it yes. it was a little surreal. joe and i walked through the wax museum and just went through history. it's really interesting becausew they've got specific pieces of history and stories about each of the figures. for example, jimmy carter is next to a shell oil you've got the oil crisis there. really, the monica lewinsky story, not far from bill clinton. they did a very nice job at the madame tussauds wax museum. i'll be honest with you, bill and hillary clinton weren't as good as the donald trump wax figure. >> tucker: the media so t liberal that i think the wax museum might lean the other direction.
9:52 pm
they seem to give preference to the republicans. you were here, this is not your first inauguration, how does this compare to earlier inaugurations? >> i would think about this earlier, when i was here for president obama's inauguration eight years ago, i felt that there was such pride in the air. i know you felt it too. it didn't even matter who you voted for. i think everybody on thatt weekend, on that day, felt proud to be an american. to watch the peaceful transition of power. b not only because we were electing the first african-american to the highest office, but also we were watching history take place and we were proud. it's really sad that you don't feel that across-the-board here today. i think part of it is this boycotting and this ridiculous idiocy of the 60 plus democrats were boycotting the inauguration. i just think it is so awful and
9:53 pm
sad. >> tucker: it shows how different washington is from the rest of the country. i think there are a lot of places that are proud and thrilled about the election l results. this is definitely not one of them. i think all my neighbors are at saint barth's right now, cuddling with their martinis. >> particularly speaking to small business, the manufacturing set, the working man and woman, they are thrilled. they cannot wait to see a trump economics, they can't wait to see taxes come down, they are just celebrating this. it's incredible to me that these people who are boycotting, hollywood as we just saw, they are not reading the people. again, they are ignoring the people. did you not to see what happened in this election? are you still blowing off the people, your constituents? i think it is going to backfire on them. >> tucker: bad manners. i certainly lived through a lot of presidents i didn't vote for. most of them, actually.
9:54 pm
you can hold your tongue and suck it up and just say great. that's not the position people here in d.c. t >> grow up. >> tucker: thanks a million, maria. i will see you bright and early tomorrow. i'm going to be watching. have a great show. coming up next, the e international house of pancakes usually just has to worry about making people breakfast, but now, they are scrambling toat placate angry hillary clintonbu supporters. we will tell you why. hillary cn supporters. we will tell you whatcha doin'? just checking my free credit score at credit karma. what the? you're welcome. i just helped you dodge a bullet. but i was just checking my... shhhhh... don't you know that checking your credit score lowers it. just be cool. actually, checking your credit score with credit karma doesn't affect it at all. are you sure? positive. huh, so i guess i could just check my credit score then. oh! check out credit karma today. credit karma. give yourself some credit. sorry about that.
