THAT BIRTHDAY IS IN EIGHTMONTHS, SO DO WHAT YOU WILL,

TERROISTS BUT YOU CAN GO TO HELLBECAUSE THAT TRIP IS STILL

HAPPENING.

MY SECOND FAVORITE UNIVERSITYNAMED AFTER A RAPPER RIGHT AFTER

CAL STATE FETTY WAP.

TRUE.

NOW LATELY GOP CANDIDATES HAVEBEEN COMPLAINING ABOUT THE

STRICT RULES AND CENTRAL AIRCONDITIONING AT THEIR DEBATE BUT

ON SATURDAY NIGHT, DEMOCRATS HADSOME RULES OF THEIR OWN.

QUESTIONS AND 30 SECONDS TORESPOND TO OUR FOLLOWUPS.

ANY CANDIDATE WHO ISATTACKED-- .

>> Larry: WHOA.

LET'S HOPE BERNIE SANDERS ISWEAR ING ONE OF

THOSE KNIFE

REPELLENT MIRACLE BELTS.

WITH ALL THESE RULES PEOPLE MUSTHAVE BEEN GLUED TO THEIR TV.

>> SATURDAY NIGHT DEBATE GOT BYFAR THE LOWEST RATING OF ANY

DEBATE SO FAR THIS YEAR.

YOU KNOW, TO BE FAIR, IT WASSATURDAY NIGHT.

SO YOU KNOW, MOST OF THEDEMOCRATIC BASE WAS PROBABLY OUT

SPENDING THE WELFARE CHECKS ONABORTIONS, AM I RIGHT?

THAT MADE HIM FEEL THE BERN.

>> YOU SAID YOU WANT TO RID THEPLANET OF ISIS, YOU SAID THE

GREATEST THREAT TO NATIONALSECURITY WAS CLIMATE CHANGE.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS DIRECTLYRELATED TO THE GROWTH OF

TERRORISM.

>> CLIMATE CHANGEIS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE

GROWTH OF TERRORISM?

I MEAN DIRECTLY RELATED WOULD BEIF AN ANGRY BAND OF POLAR BEARS

RAMPAGED THROUGH THE STREETS.

THAT WOULD BE A DIRECTCONNECTION.

JUST BEING CLEAR.

ALSO, THAT IS A REALLY TOUGH WAYTO ANSWER A QUESTION THE DAY

AFTER A TERRORIST ATTACK,BERNIE.

I MEAN LOOK IF YOU WANT TO BEPRESIDENT, PART OF YOUR JOB IS

KNOWING TO SAY THE RIGHT THINGAT THE RIGHT TIME.

IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER IF YOUARE RIGHT OR WRONG ABOUT THIS,

IT'S JUST NOT WHAT PEOPLE NEEDTO HEAR.

IF YOUR WIFE ASKED YOU DO I LOOKFAT IN THIS DRESS, THE ANSWER IS

ALWAYS NO.

NOT THE TIME TO KEEP IT AHUNDRED.

(APPLAUSE)A LITTLE DIPLOMACY, THAT'S

ALL.

NEXT UP, HILLARY, SHE WAS ASKEDTO KEEP IT A HUNDRED ABOUT HOW

MUCH MONEY SHE GETS FROM BIGWALL STREET DONORS.

>> YOU KNOW, NOT ONLY DO I HAVEHUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DONORS,

MOST OF THEM SMALL AND I'M VERYPROUD THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME, A

MAJORITY OF MY DONORS ARE WOMEN,60%.

(APPLAUSE).

>> Larry: YASSK-WEEN, YASSS.

SISTERS ARE DOING IT FORTHEMSELVES, GIRL!

WAIT, THAT HAD NOTHING TO DOWITH THE QUESTION.

(LAUGHTER)WHAT ABOUT YOUR

WALL STREET MONEY.

>> I REPRESENTED NEW YORK AND IREPRESENTED NEW YORK ON 9/11

WHEN WE WERE ATTACKED.

WE WERE ATTACKED IN DOWNTOWNMANHATTAN WHERE WALL STREET IS.

I DID SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF TIMEAND EFFORT HELPING THEM REBUILD

THAT WAS GOOD FOR NEW YORK ITWAS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY.

AND IT WAS A WAY TO REBUKE THETERRORISTS WHO HAD ATTACKED OUR

COUNTRY.

>> Larry: YEAH!

OKAY.

THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST BESTMOVES EVER.

I MEAN THE STAGECRAFT WASFANTASTIC.

FIRST SHE WHIPPED UP THE CROWDWITH WHERE ARE MY LADIES AT.

SHE PULLED A REPUBLICAN MOVEBY BRINGING OUT THE 9/11 BACKUP

DANCERS. 9/11, 9/11, Y'ALL,RIGHT?

AND THEN SHE JUST DROPPED THEMIC WITH I REBUKE THE TERRORISTS

WHO ATTACKED OUR COUNTRY.

ANYBODY REMEMBER WHAT THEORIGINAL QUESTION WAS.

I HAVE NO [BLEEP] IDEA(APPLAUSE)

THAT WAS PRETTY SWEET.

THAT WAS PRETTY SWEET.

OH, HILLARY.

THAT WAS A GOOD MOVE BUT I'MGOING TO HAVE TO GIVE YOU A

LITTLE WEAK TEA FOR THAT. I'MJUST ANNOYED THAT

I WASN'T THERE TO GIVEIT TO YOU.

>> SECRETARY CLINTON,-- WHEN YOUPUT OUT YOUR PROPOSAL ON WALL

STREET, IT WAS GREETED BY MANYAS QUOTE UNQUOTE WEAK TEA.

WEAK TEA.

>> Larry: MARTIN O'MALLEY, HOWABOUT THAT.

HEY, HEY, HEY.

YEAH!

OH, AND BY THE WAY MARTINO'MALLEY, STOP STEALING MY

(LAUGHTER)BUT THE THING THAT WAS THE

HARDEST FOR ANY OF CANDIDATES TOKEEP IT A HUNDRED ABOUT WAS THIS

PARTICULAR QUESTION.

>> VERY QUICKLY DO EITHER OF YOURADICAL ISLAM, DO EITHER OF

YOU.

>> I DON'T THINK THE TERM ISWHAT IS IMPORTANT.

>> DO YOU AGREE WITH THATCHARACTERIZATION RADICAL ISLAM.

>> I DON'T THINK WE ARE AT WARWITH ISLAM.

I DON'T THINK WE ARE AT WAR WITHALL MUSLIMS.

I THINK WE ARE AT WAR WITHJIHADIST.

>> I BELIEVE CALLING IT WHAT ITIS, THAT IT IS TO SAY RADICAL JI

HADIS THAT IS CALLING IT WHAT ITIS.

>> Larry: SO WHY IS IT OK TOCALL THEM RADICAL JIHADIST BUT

NOT RADICAL ISLAMISTS.

I HAVEN'T BEEN THIS IS HEMANTICALLY CONFUSED SINCE

LEARNING ABOUT THE WORDNIGGARDLY.

IT JUST-- MY HEAD, I DON'TCAN'T-- DO'NT USE THAT WORD.

I GUESS YOU CAN, I GUESS-- NOWLOOK, I GET IT, I GET IT, SOME

PEOPLE ON THE LEFT DON'T WANTPEOPLE TO CONFLATE ISLAM WITH

RADICAL ISLAM BUT YOU KNOWPEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO THAT

REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU CALLTHEM.

HATERS GOING TO HATE, ANDCONFLATERS ARE GOING TO

CONFLATE.

SO WHY NOT BE CLEAR.

I MEAN THE WORD RADICAL IS THEKEY MODIFIER, BY SAYING RADICAL

ISLAM BY DEFINITION ARE YOUSAYING THAT NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE

RADICAL.

IF ANYTHING YOU HEAR THE TERMRADICAL ISLAMS SHOULD CLARIFY

OUR VIEW OF RADICAL NORMALMUSLIMS, TO CLARIFY PLEASE

OKAY.

LET ME ASK YOU THIS.

OKAY, IF RADICAL IS WHAT WESHOULD CALL MUSLIMS LIKE YOU,

WHAT SHOULD WE CALL MUSLIMS WHOCREATE SENSELESS ACTS OF

VIOLENCE LIKE THE MEN IN PARIS,MUSLIM EXTREMIST.

>> NO, MUSLIM EXTREMISTS IS THENAME OF THIS TEAM I KNOW, I SAW

WAVES TO SLED.

>> Larry: NO PROBLEM, RIZWANTHE RADICAL MUSLIM, EVERYBODY.

>> Larry: OKAY, WELCOME BACK.

I'M HERE WITH MY PANEL AHOST FOR SIRIUS/XM DEAN

OBEIDALLAH.

AND THE EDITOR IN CHIEF OF THEDAILY BEAST JOHN AVLON.

AND THE AUTHOR OF THE FAULT INOUR STARS AND FOUNDER OF THE

VLOG BROTHERS JOHN GREEN.

EVERYONE AT HOME JOIN OURCONVERSATION USING THE HASHTAG

TONIGHTLY.

THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATE WASSATURDAY.

WE ALL WATCHED IT.

AND THE CANDIDATES, WE TALKEDABOUT THIS EARLIER, USING THE

TERM RADICAL ISLAM.

I KNOW YOU WROTE A VERY COOLARTICLE ABOUT THIS.

SO WHAT IS THE DANGER OF CALLINGTHIS MOVEMENT RADICAL ISLAM?

>> I THINK MUSLIMS FOR PEOPLE INOUR COMMUNITY, ANYTHING TIED

WITH THESE GUY AND ISLAM ASPRESIDENT OBAMA SAID, THEY WANT

TO BE TIED TO ISLAM.

THEY WANT TO BE SEEN AS THEDEFENDERS OF ISLAM EVEN THOUGH

THE NUMBER ONE VICTIM OF ISISARE MUSLIMS.

THE FLIP SIDE, IF YOU CALL THEMRADICAL ISLAMS DOES THAT END IT.

DO THE GUYS IN ISIS GO HEY,SHUT IT DOWN.

YOU CAN'T DO STH, THEY'RE ON TOUS.

IT IS A FIGHT OVER WORDS FROMPEOPLE ON THE RIGHT.

THEY MADE IT THAT TERM, RADICALISLAM IT IS NOT A TERM OF ART.

GUYS ON THE RIGHT MADE IT UP ANDNOW-- THEY ARE TERRORISTS.

WHY CAN'T WE JUST CALL ISISTERRORISTS AND ELIMINATE AND

NEUTRALIZE THE TERRORISTS.

(APPLAUSE).

>> Larry: JOHN, I MEAN IF ITDOESN'T, IF IT JUST DOESN'T

MATTER BUT THEY ARE THE ONESSAYING THAT THEY ARE TRIKING TO

ESTABLISH A CALIPHATE, THEY ARETHE ONES THAT ARE USING THEIR

HIJACK, A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY THEYARE HIJACKING THE ISLAMIC

RELIGION, WHY CAN'T WE SAY IT ISAN EXTREME VERSION.

>> I THINK WE CAN AND WE SHOULDBUT I THINK WE NEED TO BE CLEAR,

IT IS A DEATH CALL MARCHINGUNDER THE BANNER OF RADICAL

ISLAMISM.

YOU NEED TO MAKE A DISTINCTION,AS A FREE SOCIETY OUR DEFENSE

AGAINST EXTREMISM IS PLUR ALLISMSO WE NEED TO BE CONSISTENT

ABOUT SAYING LOOK, THESE PEOPLEDO NOT REPRESENT THE VAST

MAJORITY OF MUSLIMS, CERTAINLYNOT HERE.

WE KNOW ISIS TARGETED MANYMUSLIMS THEY THOUGHT WERE OPPOSE

TAIT FOR ASSIMILATION.

I DON'T THINK THE OBAMAADMINISTRATION DOES ITSELF

CREDIT WHEN THEY CALLED FORTHOOD WORKPLACE VIOLENCE.

YOU KNOW.

WE-- .

>> Larry: WELL, IT IS.

>> BUT THE PROBLEM IS-- .

>> Larry: RADICAL WORKPLACEVIOLENCE.

>> ANY TIME YOU USE THE WORDISLAM PEOPLE BEGIN TO ASSOCIATE

WHATEVER YOU ARE TALKING ABOUTWITH A CERTAIN THEOLOGY.

AND THE TRUTH IS THAT BECAUSE WEDON'T TALK ABOUT OTHER KINDS OF

ISLAM, IT ENDS UP LEGITIMIZINGTHE IDEA THAT IN SOME

WAY RADICAL ISLAM, RADICAL ISLAMREFLECTS THE VIEWS OF EVEN A

TINY MINORITY.

WHEN THE TRUTH IS THAT WE'RETALKING ABOUT LESS THAN HALF OF

A PERCENT OF PEOPLE WHO PRACTICEISLAM.

>> THAT'S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

>> Larry: YOU THINK THEPROBLEM IS WE'RE TOO IGNORANT OF

ISLAM?

>> I MEAN MAYBE IT IS.

BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE TOMAKE-- PEOPLE ALWAYS MAKE THE

COMPARISON TO CHRISTIANITY BUTWE KNOW CHRISTIANITY.

WE DON'T HAVE TO MAKE THOSEDISTINCTIONS.

>> AND THE REALITY IS ONLY 25%OF AMERICANS HAVE A MUSLIM

FRIEND WHICH I DEFINITELY, IWANT TO BE EVERYBODY'S MUSLIM

FRIEND.

IT'S MY DREAM.

>> ON TWITTER I'M NOT GOING TOHELP YOU MOVE BUT I'M THERE FOR

YOU.

>> THE REALITY IS THAT BECAUSEYOU'RE RIGHT, IN AMERICA IF WE

SEE SOMEONE BLOWP AN ABORTIONCLINK OR A GUY ERIC RUDOLPH KILL

PEOPLE BECAUSE HIS VIEW OFCHRISTIANITY, WE DON'T

THINK-- WE KNOW HE IS THEEXCEPTION.

RIGHT NOW I'M THE EXCEPTION,THEY'RE LIKE I'M A GOOD GUY.

I'M THE NICE MUSLIM.

BUT.

>> Larry: YOU ARE AN UNUSUALMUSLIM, ARE YOU NOT BLOWING

THINGS UP HERE.

>> ON TWITTER APPARENTLY I'M ANISIS SIM PATHIZER.

ALL DAY ON TWITTER I GET THATSTUFF.

>> BUT LOOK, THE SERIOUS POINTWE NEED TO DEAL WITH IS THERE IS

A WORLDWIDE CONFLICT GOING ONRIGHT NOW.

AND ISIS IS KILLING MUSLIMS.

MANY MORE THEN WESTERNERS BUT WENEED TO BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE

WHAT THEY REPRESENT, THAT IT'SPART OF THE LONG WAR THAT WE'RE

IN AND WE NEED TO HAVE THEDISCIPLINE AND UNDERSTANDING TO

DRAW A CONTRACT.

NOT TO BIND TO THEIR DIVIDE ANDCONQUER SAYING IT IS ISLAM

VERSUS THE WEST OR VERSUSCHRISTIANITY BUT SAYING NO, YOU

DO NOT REPRESENT THE VASTMAJORITY BUT CONFRONT WHAT THEY

DO REPRESENT WHICH IS HIJACKINGA GREAT RELIGION.

>> PEOPLE HAVE CALLED IT THECLASH OF CIVILIZATION, THERE WAS

A NICE ARTICLE ABOUT THAT.

AND THAT IS MURKY AS WELL TOO.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW, I MEAN A LOTOF PEOPLE SAY THEY HATE US

BECAUSE WOMEN DRIVE CARS OR THEYHATE US-- BUT THEY DOWNED A

RUSSIAN AIRLINER.

AND RUSSIA IS NOT A PAR A GONEOF VIRTUE FOR DEMOCRACY AND

FREEDOM.

>> THE TRUTH IS THE VASTMAJORITY OF PEOPLE KILLED ARE

MUSLIM.

ISIS POSES A MUCH BIGGER THREATTO PEOPLE LIVING IN THE ARAB

WORLD THAN IT DOSES-- POSES TOTHE U.S. OR EUROPE.

MY ISSUE WITH CALLING IT A CLASHOF CIVILIZATIONS IS THAT IT

IMAGINES THAT THERE ARE THESEDISTINCT CIVILIZATIONS WHEN

THERE ARE 10 MILLION AMERICANSWHO ARE MUSLIMS LIVING, YOU

KNOW, WITHIN PEACEFULLY ANDHAPPIFULLY HERE-- HAPPILY HERE

AND THERE IS NO THING OF THISCIVILIZATION, THAT IS SEPARATE

ONE FROM THE OTHER.

>> AND ISIS NOT ACIVILIZATION.

>> YEAH.

>> IT IS IS A FEW THOUSANDPEOPLE.

>> IT IS NOT LIKE--(APPLAUSE)

IT IS NOT LIKE THE OPENING TOJURRASIC PARK AND SUDDENLY

THERE IS THIS LAND OF ISIS.

>> JUST LAST WEEK BEFORE PARIS,THEY COORDINATED A TERRORIST

ATTACK IN BERUIT LEBANONWHICH GOT VERY LITTLE MEDIA

ATTENTION, THEY KILLED 43MUSLIMS WOUNDED 200.

SO WHAT IS THE CLASH THERE.

THEY ARE GOING NEXT DOOR ANDKILLING MUSLIMS IN LEBANON, THIS

IS A WAR, WE HAVE TO HAVE ANHONEST CONVERSATION.

>> WHAT DO THEY WANT?

I'M CONFUSED.

>> THEY WANT ME TO HAVE MY OWNTV SHOW.

>> Larry: THERE YOU GO.

>> STOP THEM NOW.

>> THE ONLY THING I'M DOWN WITH.

I'M LIKE OKAY, I'M DOWN WITHTHAT.

>> THEY WANT POWER.

THEIR WHOLE THING IS ABOUTDOMINATING AND KILLING ANYONE

WHO STANDS UP TO THEM.

IT'S SUBMIT TO ISIS OR DIE, THEYBEHEADED MUSLIM CLERICS, WOMEN,

ANYONE WHO STANDS IN THEIR WAY.

>> Larry: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACKAND TALK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT

THIS, ALL RIGHT?

>> Larry: WELCOME BACK.

I'M BACK WITH MY PANEL.

SO I WANT TO KNOW HOW WILL THETRAGEDY THAT JUST HAPPENED

AFFECT THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

DO YOU THINK IT WILL HAVE ANAFFECT.

>> YEAH.

>> I DO.

LOOK, I MEAN, THIS RACE HAS BEENSMALL, IT'S BEEN PETTY, IT'S

BEEN BITTER, DEVICIVE.

AND AN ATTACK LIKE THIS CAN BECLARIFYING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT

REFOCUSES ON WHAT REALLYMATTERS.

WHAT PRESIDENTS REALLY DO ISFOREIGN POLICY, NATIONAL

SECURITY.

AND ALL THE CELEBRITIES ANDDEMAGOGUES AND IDEAL LOGS ARE

NOT UP TO THE JOB.

THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO TRY TODEMAGOGUE THIS, THERE ALREADY

ARE, YOU HAVE A BUNCH OFGOVERNORS SAYING THEY WILL NOT

ACCEPT REFUGEES FROM SYRIA.

SO THERE IS A MEAN SPIRIT, YOUHAVE DONALD TRUMP THREATENING

MAYBE HE WILL CLOSE MOSSQS, THATIS WHAT WE HAVE TO STAND UP.

>> Larry: MAYBE WE'LL CLOSEMOSQUES.

>> YES.

AND LOOK, THAT IS THE STUFF WENEED TO STAND UP AGAINST BECAUSE

THAT BECOMES-- THE TERRORISTSWANT THIS KIND OF DIVISION.

>> Larry: I FEEL SO BAD FORTHE SYRIAN REFUGEES, YOU GET A

COUPLE OF ASSHOLES.

THESE PEOPLE'S LIVES ARE ALREADYRUINED.

AND THEN YOU GET A COUPLE PEOPLETHAT MAY HAVE INFILTRATED SOME

OF THAT.

>> OR MAY NOT HAVE, WE DON'TKNOW.

>> WE REALLY DON'T KNOW.

>> I'M FROM INDIANA.

MY GOVERNOR, SAID TODAY THAT HEWASN'T GOING TO ALLOW SYRIAN REV

GEU-- REFUGEES WHICH ISLUDICROUS, THERE IS

INTERNATIONAL LAW AROUNDREFUGEES.

THE GOVERNOR OF INDIANA ISN'TGOING TO RESHAPE IT.

>> ONLY IF THEY'RE A HOOSIER.

>> RIGHT.

>> AND YOU KNOW, IT'S A GREATEMBARRASSMENT TO ME PERSONALLY

AND A GREAT EMBARRASSMENT TO OURSTATE WHEN SOMEONE SAYS

SOMETHING LIKE THAT BECAUSE THETRUTH IS THAT WE HAVE AN

INCREDIBLY RIGOROUS REFUGEEVETTING PROCESS IN THE UNITED

STATES.

AND WE SHOULD BE WELCOMING THESEPEOPLE PRECISELY BECAUSE WE

DON'T WANT THIS TO BE ACIVILIZATIONAL CONFLICT.

BECAUSE IT ISN'T.

(APPLAUSE)>> SINCE 2012 THERE HAS V BEEN

2,000 SYRIAN REFUGEES PLACED INTHE COUNTRY.

NO REPORTS OF VIOLENCE YET THEMASS SHOOTINGS OVER THE LAST

YEAR, 70% WHITE MEN, WHO SHOULDWE BE MORE AFRAID OF.

MAYBE WE SHOULD BE DEPORTINGWHITE MEN.

>> Larry: DON'T EVEN GET MESTARTED ON THAT.

>> NO ONE HAS ASKED ME TOAPOLOGIZE ON BEHALF OF WHITE MEN

FOR THAT I DON'T KNOW WHY.

>> I'M OUTRAGED.

>> AND DONALD TRUMP SAYING CLOSETHE MOSQUE BECAUSE IN HIS WORDS

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF TALKINGGOING ON IN MOSQUES.

A LOT OF TALKING.

>> THERE IS.

>> ABOUT FALAFEL, WHY THE KNICKSKEEP LOSING, WHY CAN'T THE

GIANTS WIN.

>> CLOSE DOWN MOSQUES WHAT KINDOF WORLD WHERE POLITICIANS ARE

SO DEMONIZING A MINORITY GROUPLIKE US WHERE 1 PERCENT OF THE

COUNTRY TO TRY TO GET GAME.

THE REASON THEY DO, IT PLAYS TOTHEIR BASE.

>> I CAN'T STAND THIS POLITICALGAME.

>> GO AHEAD.

>> THE REFUGEES ARE RUNNING FROMISIS.

THEY ALREADY DISTANCE ISIS.

SO WE NEED TO SET UP AND USE THEEXAMPLE OF THE UNITED STATES TO

SET CONTRAST WITH THE KILLERSAND RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS A

REAL CONFLICT GOING ON.

BUT WE NEED TO BE BIGGER THANIT.

WE NEED TO LEAD BY THE POWER OFOUR EXAMPLE AND THAT IS ONE OF

THE WAYS WE WILL DEFEAT THEM.

>> Larry: I AGREE.

I AGREE.

(APPLAUSE)IT'S TIMES LIKE THIS, WE CAN'T

TRY TO FOLLOW WITH FEAR, WE HAVETO LEAD WITH RESOLVE, YOU KNOW.

AND STAND BY ALL OF OUR VALUES,RIGHT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
