Watters' Words: The lying left

This is a rush transcript from "Watters' World," June 23, 2018. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

JESSE WATTERS, HOST: Welcome to "Watters' World," I'm Jesse Watters. The line left, that is the subject of tonight's "Watters' Words." What happened this week was a refresher for how dishonest the left is and their lap dogs in the media.

To recap, the Obama policy on the border was catch and release, you got caught crossing, the Feds release you and tells you to show up at a court at a later date, but the illegals just skip the hearings and went unchecked into the country.

This policy actually encouraged illegal immigration. So, Trump was elected to secure the border. That's what the voters wanted. So, he enacted a zero-tolerance policy at the border. And when you get caught crossing, the Feds detain you, process you and deport you back to your home country.

If you bring a minor, you are briefly separated for a day or two, and then reunited, and then deported, but if you bring a minor and can't prove you're related, the Feds will separate and investigate if you are a trialed trafficker or a human smuggler. And if you bring a minor and claim asylum, the law says the Feds can't hold the minor longer than 20 days. At which point, they must send the child to a family member, a sponsor or a foster family in the interior of the country until the asylum claims are adjudicated and that can take forever.

And that was a Clinton era arrangement that was upheld by the liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Obama did the same thing. Trump just did it at a higher rate because all border crossers now are being prosecuted. CNN asked Senator Baldwin about the hypocrisy.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

BROOKE BALDWIN, ANCHOR, CNN: So many people in this country are certainly outraged by the cages, the thermal blankets, and the facilities housing these kids. You know, they were all there in 2014 under President Obama. And my question to you, Senator Baldwin, did you up against them then?

TAMMY BALDWIN, US SENATOR, WISCONSIN, DEMOCRAT: You know, on this issue that we get into a moment where we're making progress and then when it stalls we turn around. I think we all need to continue to be focused on it and press it through.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: What was that Senator? Was that even English? I have no idea what you just said. And for the record the Democrats don't want to solve problems, they want to blame problems on Trump and do nothing about it. How do I know this? Senator Ted Cruz released a standalone bill that would keep families together during detention and Chuck Schumer and the Democrats wouldn't vote on it because they wanted to "Keep the focus on Trump." It makes you wonder if Democrats care at all about kids. And Jimmy Kimmel led the charge on late night.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

JIMMY KIMMEL, HOST, "JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE": Just when you thought we couldn't go any lower as a nation, we have. I am sure you have seen the heartbreaking and horrific images of families being literally torn apart thanks to the Trump administration and their zero-tolerance immigration policy.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Now, Congress makes immigration law, not the President. The Democrats in Congress refused to act, so President Trump had to step up and signed an executive order which the next President can undo urging Federal agents to keep illegal immigrant families together at the border and deport them together.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: We're going to keep families together, but the border is going to be just as tough as it's been. Democrats don't care about the impact of uncontrolled migration on your communities, your schools, your hospitals, your jobs, or your safety. Democrats put illegal immigrants before they put American citizens. What the hell is going on?

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: So, families stay together and we still have a border. Everyone is happy, right? Wrong.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

KIMMEL: Thanks to this new order, instead of being separated, families from other countries will be locked up together, hopefully starting with his.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: So, the left is never happy. This was never about policy. It was about political scoring. No matter what Trump does, he'll be attacked by the media. Even if he does good things for America. Remember when Donald Trump ran for President, he promised to bomb the hell out of ISIS, and the media criticized him.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Dropping bombs, first of all, you've got to have targets to drop bombs on. It's an applause line for people who have never been there and had never seen what it's like.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: And when Trump defeated the ISIS caliphate, instead of reporting on his successful military strategy, here were the headlines. "Three quarters of unintentional civilian deaths in Iraq and Syria have occurred during the Trump presidency." And remember when the media went after President Trump for not going to Puerto Rico soon enough after the hurricane and handing out supplies?

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The lame, pathetic excuse for a president that is Donald Trump is tweeting about the NFL while Americans are dying and while America is on this level of need? He should be talking about one thing and one thing only, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Well, when he did go, they didn't like how he handed out supplies.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This was a PR 17-minute meeting. There was no exchange with anybody, not with the mayors and in fact, this terrible abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people. It does not embody the spirit of the American nation.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Trump was savaged for his strong stance on North Korea.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

REP. ELIOT ENGEL, D-NEW YORK: This Commander-in- Chief has anger and hostility and bellicose rhetoric and things that aren't that helpful when we are dealing with an adversary like North Korea.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Then when the President engaged in the exact diplomacy the media was pleading for, this was framed as a loss.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: A summit is not an accomplishment for the American President, Brian, it's a major accomplishment for Kim Jong-un.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: And finally, the Trump economy.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There is nothing unprecedented about Trump's first six months in office. Economically anyway.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Now that the unemployment rate dropped to the lowest it's been in almost 20 years, we hear this.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

REP. NANCY PELOSI, MINORITY LEADER, D-CALIFORNIA: Hip-hip hooray. Unemployment is down, what does that mean to me in my life?

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: So, the lesson here is the left-wing media is not covering Donald Trump fairly. We've proven it. Do not trust them. They won't tell you the truth. Joining me now, Ed Henry is here to break it all down.

ED HENRY, CHIEF NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT, FOX NEWS: Good to see you.

WATTERS: Good to see you, too. Ed, what do you think about my brilliant commentary?

HENRY: I mean, it is so hard to improve on. Anything you say - I think what you left out though is look, in terms of the immigrant story and the migrant children, this was something that the President and his administration brought on themselves.

WATTERS: Because of the zero-tolerance policy.

HENRY: That they stepped up to show that they were being tougher. Jeff Sessions...

WATTERS: To be tougher.

HENRY: To be tougher and to crack down on illegal immigration. You are right, he got elected on that, but when the heat got a little hot, they decided to pull back. Jeff Sessions this week did an interview saying, "We never intended to separate these families." Wait a second, Jeff Sessions was at the border himself a few weeks ago announcing this type of policy of separating families.

WATTERS: You know, you're right, they did not communicate the strategy and the policy as effectively as they could have, but the policy is pretty clear. You don't let people come across willy-nilly without prosecuting, detaining them and then deporting them back. If they bring a migrant, you have to determine if that child is being trafficked or not and in order to do that, you do have to separate that child.

HENRY: Something Hillary Clinton suggested a few years back when we had a lot of kids coming from Central America, she did an interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN where she was saying, "You've got to crack down because if you let the kids in, it sends a signal they can send more."

So when the shoe is on the other foot, the Democrats don't like it, and by the way, when you talk about dishonesty. Why does "Time" magazine where I will agree with you contrary to a moment ago, "Time" magazine puts on the cover this crying child with the President standing over her and in fact, this kid was never separated from her mom. It's not true.

WATTERS: Yes, so this kid, this two-year-old child is from Central America and this image was used by the media and by Democrats to show that this policy of the President where people were being separated was mean and harsh and cruel.

But it turns out, the child never separated from the mother. The mother was previously deported. The mother was not claiming asylum, she was going there for a better economic opportunity, and the mother took the child away from the father, left the other kids in Central America. The father had no idea this was even happening.

HENRY: So, if the policy is so bad, why can't the media by and large stick with facts? Why would they have to come up with fake news?

WATTERS: Why the whole week and a week and a half on this story, they haven't covered the facts. They willfully didn't cover the facts just to make the President look bad. They should have reported the policies that were in place. They should have reported the Obama policies that were in place, but they didn't.

HENRY: The President had his rally in Minnesota this week, he said something that I think he can carry into the midterms, which is, he made the charge that Democrats care sometimes more about illegal immigrants than citizens. Ask the family of Kate Steinle, with sanctuary cities that are defended time and time again.

WATTERS: Kate Steinle was separated from her family by a bullet, fired by an illegal immigrant who was deported five times.

HENRY: The President is on the right side when he's talking about enforcing laws which is pretty obvious and pretty basic, he got elected on that, and cracking down on illegal immigration. The problem is, when you put the kids in the middle of it, it enables Democrats and the media to exploit the policy in a way that blows up in its face. They probably should through that part a lot more.

WATTERS: I agree. It was not well handled...

(CROSSTALK)

HENRY: The big picture, illegal immigration is a strong issue for him.

WATTERS: It is a strong issue and the Democrats think they can run on these child migrants, but I don't think that's necessarily going to move votes, because it doesn't affect the average citizen. Yes, it's sad, it tugs at your heart strings. But it's not like gas prices, it's not like taking away your healthcare, it's not like jobs. It may make you feel bad for the moment, but this isn't a major issue that I think people, especially independents are going to be voting for in November.

HENRY: Right, and by signing the executive order, the president may have taken these images off the table, number one; and number two, the bigger issue I think is, why leaders in his own party can't deliver on basic immigration reform.

WATTERS: Republicans in the House can't get anything out.

HENRY: Exactly the point, so how can they go to the voters in November and say, "Keep us in power because we're going to build a wall." They are not doing it.

WATTERS: Obama had a super majority when he was there and they did nothing on immigration...

HENRY: He said he was going to do immigration reform, and didn't.

WATTERS: Now, they have control over Congress and the Senate, Republicans can't do a thing on immigration. Ed, we're the only ones that can get things done.

HENRY: You're the man. You're the one who gets things done.

WATTERS: Thank you. That was the smartest thing you said all day. Thanks very much.

HENRY: Thanks, buddy.

WATTERS: All right, the president calling out Democrats for using immigration to distract from the corruption revealed this week at the Department of Justice and the FBI. Listen to this.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

TRUMP: You look at the corruption. Did you ever see anything like it, really? That's why they are building up immigration so you can't see what's going on in Congress. They want to stay on immigration where Obama had bigger problems than anybody, where Bush had problems, where other presidents - they want to stay on immigration because they don't want to go into the halls of Congress which has totally revealed the Russian scam that's going on.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: The President pointing specifically to the lead agent in both the Clinton and Russia and probes, Peter Strzok who was mentioned approximately 600 times in the IG report. This week, Strzok he was escorted from FBI headquarters and stripped of his clearance. So what does that mean for the Russia investigation? Joining me now, former Trump adviser, Roger Stone.

Roger, I was watching this IG hearing and Trey Gowdy really just tearing into these people up there. Listen to Trey, what he had to say.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

REP. TREY GOWDY, R-SOUTH CAROLINA: There were FBI agents and attorneys who decided to prejudge the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case before the investigation ended. I want you to let that sink in for a second. They had prejudged the outcome of the Hillary Clinton investigation before the investigation ended and these exact same FBI agents and attorneys prejudged the outcome of the Russia investigation before it even began. That is textbook bias.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: So you have biased investigators running wild, and now you are caught up in the middle of all this stuff, are you nervous?

ROGER STONE, AMERICAN POLITICAL CONSULTANT, LOBBYIST AND STRATEGIST: No, not really. I hope the House Intelligence Committee can get to the bottom of why the Comey FBI ran a paid informant who was a Russian national admitted to the country on an informant visa in on - in May of 2016 in an attempt to entrap me and compromise Donald Trump. I rejected the offer.

WATTERS: What was the offer?

STONE: Michael Caputo, my long-time associate was working for Trump contacted me and said a man named Henry Greenberg - that turns out to be an alias - has information to be valuable to the Trump campaign. I agreed to meet with him. When I met with him for 20 minutes in South Florida, he said, "I want to sell you documents..." actually, he didn't say documents, he said, "...information on Hillary Clinton. It will cost you $2 million.

WATTERS: What did you say?

STONE: A, I don't have $2 million. B, if I did I wouldn't pay for information. He laughed and said, "It's not your money I want, it's Donald Trump's money." Gave away the game. Now, this guy has been admitted. He is a Russian national, which I admit I forgot, but the meeting is inconsequential, nothing improper or illegal happened, "The Washington Post" corrected...

WATTERS: So, you have a Russian...

STONE: Right.

WATTERS: Former FBI informant.

STONE: Or probably current.

WATTERS: Current, former, that's to be determined...

STONE: Well, but...

WATTERS: Coming at you in 2016 offering paid dirt on Hillary Clinton.

STONE: Right. He's a convicted violent felon, spent five years in jail in Russia. So technically, he shouldn't be able to get in the country. The Miami bureau of the FBI has sponsored him on an informant's visa on nine previous occasions. This is all happening at about the that the Australian ambassador is not bumping into, but meeting with George Papadopoulos.

WATTERS: Okay, so yes, this is another instance of an FBI connected...

STONE: About the same time...

WATTERS: Individual running games at the Trump campaign, and this is also around the same time where Loretta Lynch, the Obama AG allowed the Russian lawyer, a special visa grant to come into this country and meet the Trumps at Trump Tower. And then, remember, she met with the Fusion GPS president before, and after that meeting. It adds up to a lot of Obama people throwing individuals at the Trump people fishing. Fishing, and I don't think they caught anything. In fact, they caught nothing, yet they are still turning the screws to the Trump campaign a year and a half afterwards.

STONE: Well, the Democrats would like to talk about the fact that I honestly didn't remember this. Not the fact that the guy is FBI connected, that he is a paid informant and that nothing of consequence happened at the meeting. Along with Stef Halper, along with the Papadopoulos situation, yes, I think it was a setup, it was a sting. It failed.

WATTERS: Yes, also, it was a failed sting potentially, also at the same time, we have Susan Rice's cyber chief, and he testifies that Susan Rice, Obama National Security Adviser told him to stand down in 2016 on Russia interference in our election. Listen to this.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

SEN. JAMES RISCH, R-IDAHO: But as far as your cyber response, you were told to stand down, is that correct?

MICHAEL DANIEL, FORMER CYBERSECURITY COORDINATOR: We were - those actions were put on the back burner, yes.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: That is huge news and the media did not report that this week. All they wanted to talk about was Melania's jacket. I think this is just devastating.

STONE: What's amazing, Jesse is there is Russian collusion in the 2016 election. The $145 million that the Russian energy company pays to the Clinton Foundation, the half million that Bill takes for a speech. The fact that John and Tony Podesta are making millions from the oligarchs around Putin in banking, in gas, and in uranium. There is your collusion. It's right there for everybody to see, instead we are running FBI stings on Trump operatives.

WATTERS: Well, Donald Trump never took half a million to speak in Moscow, I know that, and his foundation - the Trump foundation also did not take over a hundred million dollars in Russia-connected money. So, you know, we talked about it earlier on the show, there is a complete double standard with how the media treats this President compared to how the former President was treated and I don't think that's ever going to change because I think they are so invested in his defeat that they will not allow any good news out there to the American people because they are afraid of him getting re-elected.

STONE: That's why we call it the Russian collusion delusion.

WATTERS: All right, Roger, thank you very much. And later, "Watters' World" goes back and hits the streets.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

WATTERS: What does Congress do?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: [Bleep] the world.

WATTERS: I am going to give that one to you.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: The left has become completely unhinged this week on immigration law that separates families at the border.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

RACHEL MADDOW, HOST, "THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW": I am going have to hand this off, sorry. That's it for us tonight.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Donald Trump increasingly looks like Hitler in Nazi Germany.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Families are being torn apart. Who in America could do this?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It is ugly, it is child abuse. It's a human rights abuse and he should be ashamed much himself, and people that support him should be ashamed of themselves.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Joining me with their reaction, contributor at The Federalist, Britt McHenry. The founding publisher of "Catalina," Cathy Areu and Anna Paulina, an Air Force veteran and conservative activist. All right, Anna Pelina, I mean, this was a really disgusting display from the left in the media comparing everybody who wants border enforcement to Hitler. What do you think about that?

ANNA PAULINA, US AIR FORCE VETERAN: I'll start out by saying what I've always believed that secured borders saves lives all the way around. To compare what's going on at the border without the facts and making such demonizing statements is not only damaging to the United States as a whole, but it is damaging to so many people that have actually gone through the atrocities of what happened during World War II.

WATTERS: It is. It really kind of lessens the tragedy there in Germany in the '30s and the '40s and someone spoke out about this, the Border Patrol Union President in the Tucson sector, Art Del Cuato, pretty disgusted with being compared to some sort of you know, storm trooper. Listen to what he had to say.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

ART DEL CUATO, BORDER PATROL UNION PRESIDENT, TUCSON SECTOR: It is sickening that certain members of the media have chosen to attack our President. It is sickening members of the media have chosen to attack Border Patrol agents and describe us as Nazis.

Agents that I know, that I've worked with, myself included, go out there to that field numerous times with our own food that we buy, toys, clothes, and everything else so we can assist some of these people that we arrest on the border. To compare to us Nazis is a whole new low.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

WATTERS: Britt, that needed to be said, and I just found this out today.
Half of our Border Patrol agents are Hispanic.

BRITT MCHENRY, CONTRIBUTOR, THE FEDERALIST: And I just want to know where are the tears in April 2016 under the Obama administration when now we're finding out immigrant children as young as 14 had bags over their heads and were chained up in the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center. We have had long-standing immigration problems and for these Border Patrol agents, they also have to deal with, Jesse as the Homeland Security pointed out, a 300 percent increase in adults unrelated to immigrant children who (inaudible)...

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: Fake family units.

MCHENRY: Yes.

WATTERS: They are rushing the border because they are trying to take advantage of the catch and release soft border policy. Cathy, don't you think the democratic policy on the border is actually pro-cartel?

CATHY AREU, FOUNDING PUBLISHER, CATALINA: Pro cartel?

WATTERS: Because they are the ones making money off of the coyotes. They are the ones smuggling the drugs when it's such an open border. They are the only ones benefiting.

AREU: The democrats are benefiting from the drugs and coyotes and...

WATTERS: No, I am saying the cartels are.

AREU: The cartels...

WATTERS: Because the border is not being enforced.

AREU: Well, we are talking about the southern border, that's what we're all concerned about. The southern border, nothing about the northern border. Nothing about our other borders...

WATTERS: Are you worried about the Canadians coming across?

AREU: Yes, I am worried the Canadians, I am worried about the terrorists that come from Canada. We have other borders...

WATTERS: Do we have a crisis on the northern border with Canada that I don't know about?

AREU: Well, we don't have terrorists trying to come through the northern border, I mean, all our borders should be secure if we are going to talk about borders.

WATTERS: I agree, but the last time I checked, there are massive unchecked hordes of illegal immigrants pouring from north to south.

AREU: Well, there are no wars coming from south to north, but...

WATTERS: But there's hundreds of thousands of people crossing...

(CROSSTALK)

AREU: That's an exaggeration...

WATTERS: Anna Paulina go ahead.

PAULINA: Hold on. Hold on. My husband fought five combat tours overseas and you are going to school us on what it's like to actually deal with terrorist organizations? The threat of immigration and what's happening currently in the United States is being blown out of proportion for a few reasons? If you want to talk about statistics. The DEA is reporting that in Arizona alone, there is over $100 million drug organization coming in illegally into this country.

Drugs, cartel, and I saw your article that you did on MS-13 just being a gang. They are sending coyotes and they are working for the Sinaloa cartel and if you're saying something else, you're wrong. You're absolutely wrong. These are damaging children and women, and for you to say that you're a feminist is terrible.

WATTERS: Yes, Cathy...

AREU: I just don't recall writing an article about that.

WATTERS: The people that bring children across the border. I know a lot of the times, they are trying to do what's best for their family, but that is a dangerous, dangerous trek and they are putting their child in jeopardy and to come across that valley and put a $5,000.00 price tag on their head from a smuggler, and then half the time, they have to work that debt off once the child reaches a sponsor family, that is human trafficking.

AREU: But luckily, it's at an all time low. Immigration has been at all time low...

MCHENRY: It is not an all-time low.

AREU: We are at a net zero right now. Our biggest problem with immigration was about 20 to 30 years ago. The economy in Mexico is better than ever.

MCHENRY: The State Department is reporting 18,000 women are being brought into this country. That is modern day slavery.

AREU: We're following the past. This is not the worst it's been.

WATTERS: I don't think that's a good argument that it's not as worst as it has been...

MCHENRY: Modern day slavery...

WATTERS: I considered this kind of like an airport. All right, if you have an airport in this country, you come in, you show your ID, they check you out, they say, "Where are you from? Where are you coming from?" That's how it should be in the southern border. Instead, you just come across, no one asks for your ID. There is no barrier there. Don't you think the rest of the country should be as secure as our airports?

MCHENRY: Absolutely. You know, look, children should be with their families. But Democrats have all these feeling, they have no solutions to it, and that's the problem. The goal post keeps moving. You give an inch, President Trump signs the executive order; now all of a sudden, you saw on the media, "Let's just take everybody. Let everybody come in." It's a privilege to be an American, it's a privilege to live in this country and we don't have open borders. You need to enforce it and this has become, in my opinion, if you look at "Time" magazine with the Photoshopped photo of the little girl and President Trump and now, the father of that girl saying, "She wasn't separated from her mother."

AREU: But she was sad. She was sad and she was at a detention center.

MCHENRY: That's fake news. It's a completely different issue.

AREU: It's not fake news. She existed. She was there and she was sad because her mother wasn't separated from her is a different story, she was there, she was sad.

MCHENRY: Her mother was trying to find work.

WATTERS: Listen, I don't think we're ever going to solve the crisis if the Democrats don't agree we have borders in this country. And if you don't enforce those borders, you don't have a country.

AREU: Northern borders as well as southern...

WATTERS: Okay, watch out for those Canadians. Here they come.

PAULINA: All right, across the board. It saves lives for Americans, and it saves lives for us here, and the Mexicans as well.

WATTERS: All right, thank you guys very much. Up next, President Trump creating a Space Force. But a space pacifist is here to debate me about that in a world exclusive.

ROBERT GRAY, CORRESPONDENT, FOX NEWS: Live from "America's News Headquarters," I'm Robert Gray. Thousands of people rallying across the country speaking out against the separation of immigrant parents and their children. The demonstrations come despite President Trump's executive order earlier this week that reversed the practice. In recent weeks, more than 2,300 children were taken from their parents under a zero-tolerance policy. More protests are planned for next week and states from Connecticut to California.

Minneapolis police shooting to death an armed suspect earlier tonight. It happened following several 911 calls with concerned people saying the suspect was firing off a 0.9 millimeter handgun. The suspect caught up to the man and a foot chase ensued. The suspect was shot and pronounced dead at the scene. Police say no one else was injured. I'm Robert Gray. now back to "Watters' World."

DARK HELMET: Prepare to attack.

COLONEL SANDURZ: Prepare to attack.

DARK HELMET: On the counts of three. One, two, three. What happened?
Where are they?

COLONEL SANDURZ: I don't know, sir. They must have hyperjets on that thing.

DARK HELMET: And what have we got on this thing? A Cuisinart??

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

WATTERS: That was the scene from "Spaceballs," and life maybe imitating art now that President Trump has ordered the DoD to boldly go where no man has gone before, ordering the creation of a Space Force.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

TRUMP: My new national strategy for space recognizes that space is a war- fighting domain just like the land, air, and sea. When it comes to defending America, it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space, we must have American dominance in space.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: But not everybody is thrilled about the militarization of space. So far those opposed include the Klingons, Romulans and members of Asgardia, the self-titled first space nation right here on earth.

Lena De Winne is the Deputy Head of Administration of Asgardia and she joins me now. So, Lena, you are a member of Asgardia which is a space nation, yet you live here on earth.

LENA DE WINNE, DEPUTY HEAD OF ADMINISTRATION, ASGARDIA: Indeed, I am a proud member of Asgardia, the first in human history space nation.

WATTERS: Okay, so the members of your nation live on earth. Have you ever...

DE WINNE: We've lived on earth so far.

WATTERS: Okay, so you plan on later going into space and living.

DE WINNE: Everybody inevitably will be moving to the other planets. It's been discussed since the dawn of cosmonotics since the great philosophers and visionaries at the end of 19th and beginning of the 20th century.

WATTERS: Okay, so your plan is to eventually lead your people into space and live there. Now, if you are living in space, do you think you might need protection?

DE WINNE: Of course, protection is needed everywhere.

WATTERS: Okay, good, so the Space Force that Donald Trump is now launching would provide that protection.

DE WINNE: Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America. We at Asgardia are open to the whole world and every earthling just by the mere fact that they are born on earth can belong to Asgardia. We believe in equality for all people living anywhere in the world. So, I have no problem with protection. Everybody needs protection. But we need however to make equal protection to every citizen of the earth.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

DR. SPOCK: Live long and prosper.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Okay, well, the way it works on earth is the United States, usually, controls the seas, controls the air, and allows for the peaceful interaction of citizens in their own countries. Now where the problems arise is when the United States does not take a direct role and protect people. Wouldn't you like America of all the countries in the world to provide that type of protection in space not only from people fighting in space, but maybe from aliens?

DE WINNE: Let me put this in several different perspective, because honestly, and first of all, I am not sure how serious you are when you are saying that only America provides peace on earth. There are other countries in the world who does that...

WATTERS: Who else provides for peace on earth?

DE WINNE: A variety of countries, but that is not the topic of our discussion.

WATTERS: Does Saudi Arabia protect everybody in the Middle East or does America?

DE WINNE: I am not an expert on Middle East, however, I am an expert on peace in space and there is an outer space treaty which was initiated in the late '60s, also with America as one of the founding initiators and the purpose of that outer space treaty was to make sure that there is no war proliferation in space. It was done for a reason.

Humankind is imperfect and it is in this imperfection, it also wages wars, but the space, according to the outer space treaty, is a resource which belongs to the entire humankind and Asgardia, the first in the world history of space nations founded by Dr. Igor Ashurbeyli is (inaudible)...

WATTERS: What are you going to do when you get into space?

DE WINNE: We will peacefully settle on orbital platforms and eventually, we will move out to the moon base. It is on the moon - this is the current vision.

WATTERS: Okay, so you guys are going to settle and procreate and live on the moon and you don't want America to protect your security. I just feel like it's a little risky because you know, the Russians might go out there and start shooting lasers and the aliens might come out there and start trying to take over. I just think, you're a little misguided, you might need the Space Force to watch your back.

DE WINNE: I think, Jesse, you are playing with semantics because we are here not debating the need of being safe and protected and secure. What we are trying to debate is the need to draw the weapons into space and these are separate discussions. When you are building a car which is safe for driving, you are not building a car which shoots people. You are building in safety features. This is completely a different issue.

WATTERS: Well, there is a difference between a car and a tank. And in war, I would rather have a tank than a corvette. Lena, I've got to run, thank you very much. Good luck out there. Still ahead, "Watters' World" quiz is back, and it's a doozy, but first Diamond and Silk.

Members of the left crossing a line this week harassing the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen while she was dining at a Mexican restaurant on Tuesday. The activists were protesting Trump's immigration policy and if that wasn't enough, now, comes words one of the activists is an employee for the Department of Justice.

Joining me now, Diamond and Silk. I mean, I think Kirsten is doing the right thing in the midst much this border situation by dining at a Mexican restaurants.

DIAMOND, VIDEO BLOGGER: Yes, she is, and she also explained the process which people should go by, but what I find appalling is hecklers heckling her and disturbing her while she eats. Where is the women's rights movement to protect her? Because she has a right to eat in that restaurant without anyone disturbing her. Why was the restaurant allowing this to go on? Somebody should be sued for this and if these hecklers want to heckle somebody, how about going up there and heckle the Democrats in Congress who won't come to the table to solve this problem.

SILK, VIDEO BLOGGER: That's right.

WATTERS: That's right. They could have come to the table right at that Mexican restaurant and maybe hashed out the details. I think Kirsten should have taken her margarita and tossed it in the face of that Justice Department employee. I can't believe she still has a job as of today but you know what, these people are allowed to run wild and there is no sanction in (inaudible)...

SILK: It could not have Diamond and Silk...

DIAMOND: They better be glad it wasn't Diamond and Silk.

WATTERS: There would have been tacos flying all over the place.

DIAMOND: Oh, yes.

WATTERS: Speaking of protesters, there was an incident at one of the Trump rallies this week when some, I guess, man got a little rowdy, and here is what the President had to say.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

TRUMP: We have a single protester. There we go. Good-bye, darling. He's going home to his mom. Say hello to mommy. And tomorrow, the fake news will say tomorrow massive protests at the Trump rally. One person. Massive protests. Aye-aye-aye. Was that a man or woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Classic.

DIAMOND: Listen, okay, first of all, when you come as the Lula lone wolf trying to protest in front of all those thousands upon thousands of people, please make sure we can identify you because we didn't know whether that was a man, a woman or a wolf. We didn't know. So, I won't stop the President for saying what he's saying and stop trying to protest. Maybe if you stay in there, open up your ears, you can learn something from this president.

SILK: Or buy some clippers.

DIAMOND: Yes.

WATTERS: Yes, not a very good undercover disguise going into a Trump rally with a man bun. I mean, the security should have known what they were dealing with at the gate. Okay, you guys heard the last segment with the space force protester. I think she doesn't understand the gravity of the situation.

DIAMOND: I don't think she understands the gravity of the situation and she don't understand that. People can think she is cuckoo for cocoa puffs. I mean, I don't get what she is trying to do here. I think that she has leaned so far to the left that she has fallen off a cliff. I don't understand that she wants to live in space, but I think she should think things out and think them all the way through before she just starts talking about stuff.

SILK: That's right.

WATTERS: Yes, she has literally fallen off the face of the earth. Lastly, ladies, I heard you have a movie coming out. Am I invited to the premiere?

DIAMOND: Oh, absolutely. So, everything is going to be released this fall, and it's called "Dummycrats." We found that the President is doing a great job draining the swamp, now it's time for us to expose the swamp, and what we want to do is expose the hypocrisy especially among these "Dummycrats" in Congress, especially the ones that are always arguing, always bickering about nothing, and then they get mad with a sitting President for following the law, the same law that a previous President followed.

SILK: So make sure that you go to dummycratsthemovie.com, so stay tuned for what's coming up.

WATTERS: All right, the ladies coming to a theater near you. Up next, "Watters' World" hits the streets for a classic current events quiz.

You know, I used to do a lot of "Watters' World" quizzes and I used to hit the streets and asked all kinds of ridiculous questions. I stopped doing it for a little while because it was cold. And you know, I am spoiled now, but I hear from you. People have been complaining I am not doing the quizzes anymore, so I went back to Union Square in New York City, you know the drill.

WATTERS: Excellent. Do you know who I am?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Nope.

WATTERS: I'm Watters and this is my world.

WATTERS: Yes, I can tell.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Cute.

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: God. So, I'll be back out there a little bit more this summer asking ridiculous questions. So you guys have that to look forward to, but up next another thing to look forward to, "Last Call."

Time now for "Last Call," normally people hit the gym to work out, but a Michigan woman hit up Planet Fitness and got all worked up over a Tootsie Rolls.

(VIDEO CLIP STARTS)

[Bleep]

(VIDEO CLIP ENDS)

WATTERS: Wow, it looks like she really wanted those Tootsie Rolls. That's all for us tonight. Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. "Justice with Judge Jeanine," is next and remember, I'm Watters and this is my world.
