The words “one person, at a point,” “one country,” and “one culture” have all become a common refrain for Republican presidential candidates in recent days.
Trump has said he doesn’t care about “one-person-at-a-time,” which he has said “can be a problem.”
However, his campaign’s own statement said that “Trump doesn’t think the U.S. should be run like a single-country, one-culture nation,” and that “while we should respect one country, we should also respect the unique culture and history of each country.”
The same is true for Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, who has said, “I don (want to) run as one of these ‘one-man nations.’
That would not work, and it would be disastrous.”
O’Malley’s comments came after he told a local radio station, “The American people want their president to know they care about him, that he cares about them.
They want a president who knows what they want and needs and wants to do.”
Ombrello and O’Brien were asked about Trump’s recent comments about Muslims and immigrants in a new PBS NewsHour segment.
O’Leary said he thought the remarks were a distraction and that he wasn’t “going to spend my time on a TV show telling people how to live their lives.”
O’Bryan said he thinks Trump has a point, and that his comments are part of a “disgraceful pattern of hate speech.”

O’Brien said Trump should be more aware of how “everyday Americans” view his remarks and the country as a whole.
“What he is saying is, ‘Oh, I have to have people respect me.
I have got to do this.
I can’t be a president of the world, of the United States.
I’m going to have to work with all of you, but you are going to respect me, but we’re going to treat each other as Americans,'” O’Brian said.”
But what he is also saying is ‘If you don’t have to respect my country, I don’t think that is going to work,'” OBryan added.
“I think that’s what he’s saying.”
