And that is a seminal question. That right now, the American public they're sick and tired of having to rehash these these conversations and in thirty five years, we don't want to have this conversation. So the way to do it is not stamp at you actually have to weed it out you have to make some allowance for because we're human beings for stupidity. Bad taste ignorance and be willing to accept sincere. Apologies challenge was that. He did not come out and did not come out and tell the American people I may have done. Started Friday night when this was all breaking. And it was you couldn't get in touch with the governor's office. If your life depended on it, then he came out and said, I did a racist thing. Then he came out the next day and says he didn't do that racist thing, but he did another racist thing. So I think there are some who are questioning how sincere the whole thing actually was. If we're going to be on the ballot box soon. I think everybody would say, well, let's let the voters decide, but he's not going to be on the ballot box perhaps ever know. And you know. Look if we were talking about something he did in eighteen eighty four or nineteen thirty four or something like that. I think I would have perhaps a different reaction. I would perhaps accept as oh well, everybody didn't which but everybody can do that in nineteen Eighty-four. It's just simply the case. Everybody didn't do that in nineteen th everybody puts you polish face again. The state of Julia was one year away from making history with Doug wilder when we come back that sound you hear is the clock ticking down to another government shutdown deadline Senator Rick Scott, a Florida joins me next. Welcome back with two weeks for the president and congressional leaders to make a border deal. Republican leader Mitch McConnell is reportedly warning President Trump both in public and private against using his exit ramp a national emergency declaration. But as the president listening. Whatever works, which means aborting shutdown and voiding the president feeling he should declare a national emergency. I think there's a good chance it will have to do that. But we will at the same time we build it, regardless building wall. And we're building a lot of wall. But I could do it a lot faster than the other way. Joining me now is Republican Senator Rick Scott, a Florida, and I say Senator because this is first time on the show as Senator Senator Scott, welcome. And have you decided like a bunch of other former governors in the Senate that you missed the old title? It's Chuck at the different job. You know? I I ran for the job because I want to get something done DC's dysfunctional very frustrating. Well, let's start about this frustrating. You you actually, it's ironic you had to take the oath during shutdown, right? All of these new members elected in two thousand eighteen taking an oath of shut talk about your metaphor for dysfunction has the president in his public threat of a national emergency. Still does that undermine doesn't that undermine the negotiations that are happening now Capitol Hill. Well, first off. I don't think it's the first thing you want to do is use your urgency power to to do things like this. But if I was the president right now, I'd be pretty frustrated. You know, everybody says oh gosh. We don't want government shutdown and everybody says we need border security. And then you see Nancy Pelosi sit there and saying there's not gonna be any money for wall when you talk to border security, they say you have to have barriers so people are being disingenuous. It's like they're just actors, and there's just a lot of hatred up there for President Trump on the democrat side. And it's frustrating. We gotta get something done. I don't it's my first choice family us his mercy power. But he's proposed things Chuck Schumer Nancy Pelosi or not being they're not negotiating with him in good faith. I don't believe..
