JONAH GOLDBERG: I think that he very much would love to appoint, pick some incredibly exotic identity politics wedge issue kind of guy to rev up the base, or gal, or to be determined, or in between, the first lesbian transgender poet Supreme Court justice or something. 

SHANNON BREAM [host]: It's 2014, you never know. 

GOLDBERG: Everything is possible. But all I'm saying is that he would love to do that for the same reasons that he wants people to declare war on women, it would be to put the Republicans in a very difficult place of having to sort of seem like they were being racist, or sexist, or homophobic. And those are the games he plays these days, and that crowd ate it up.
