GAVIN MCINNES (HOST): Eric Holder saying when they, go low we kick them? I like that. Let's get low. Let's be disgusting. Let's make some f------ jokes. Can we kill a dead guy who ran Japan’s Socialist Party, please. It happened 58 years ago, relax. That is my beef with the right, is they're so sacred. And they're so pure and so careful never to offend, never to make the wrong joke. They're so worried about interpretation. And you're dealing with mentally ill people. It’s not like -- you'll make a joke and then they'll say 'You want trans-disabled children to die in a fire.' That’s not even in the same universe as what I said. So why appease them?

MCINNES: At the very least, people of the right, let us scum in. You need us foot soldiers. You need us disgusting rude jerks because outside of the swears and the drugs and the violence, quite a list actually, outside of all the things you disagree with, we have a lot in common. What we have in common is we both want America to prosper. We both want Trump to do well.
