DAN BALL (HOST): I know that you told me before, and some of your Secret Service guys said that you’re a fan of the program, so I know you watch, and you’ve heard me make the statement, and it might be a little bold and a little shocking, and I’ve taken a lot of heat from some of the wackos out there on the left. But I think the mainstream media should be charged – the folks that made the call at the top – with treason to this nation. 

You want to talk about something that has done severe damage? It is the brainwashing and the lies and the omittance of stories by the mainstream media, and by the social media oligarchs as well. They have literally lied to and brainwashed over half this country, so, to me, they’re some of the most guilty ones. We expect politicians – not yourself included – to be liars. We’ve seen them lie, time and time again. But the press used to tell you the truth, and they don’t anymore. That’s why I’m glad to be here at One America News, where we tell the truth. Mr. President –

FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: And where you’ve done a great job, I have to say. I think you’ve done a great job.

BALL: Thank you, sir. Thank you. Let’s talk about 2000 Mules and election integrity as we’re facing these elections tomorrow night.
