Mike pompeo Do i have time. I do have time I was in maine this weekend. Now main in my mind maine is a place you drive to and it's far and that's why you never go there 'cause who drive seven hours to main it just doesn't nobody has the time well. I discovered a crazy thing. If you're invited to preach in a church in maine yes you can fly there. So i went to. Jfk airport got on a plane and she zam like eight minutes later. I land in the middle of maine bangor maine and you know what i learned. Know what it's not pronounced bangor maine. Bangor maine is wrong. Bangor bangor so i was in bangor maine and as soon as i got there. I said something about bangor. And they said it's it's bangor so bangor or bangor. Bangor maine is a place where my friend. Ken graves has a church. Now can graves. He's a living cartoon figure he's like curtis leila like there's certain people that they're they're really cartoon figures come to life. Mike lindell is another one. Ken graves is He's he's he's such a man's man he's got a voice. I can't even do his voice. You have to gargle with gravel for two decades before you can. Approximate was voice. Sounds like but he's just He's the kind of man that no matter who you are. As a guy he makes you feel effeminate. Not in a good way and i preached in his church but the night before he and his wife took me and some of the family members out to a place called. Young's it's i think it's in belfast. Maine i forget and a lobster place. You sit outside and can being a man's man he said we're gonna get you a two and a half three pound lobster now for me. That's that's kind of lobster. I'm always interested in but you can't afford that. You know if you eat in a restaurant. I it just like this place. I had two two and a half pound lobsters to and i got gout and really. My career ended right there but it was so incredible. And while we're sitting there eating lobster we're joking around about something and kens wife says something about race car. I don't know it was like this crazy conversation. And i said something about drag racing and i brought up don the snake predom- do you know that name not okay. Well that's to me. That's like drag racing royalty don the snake prudhomme and kens wife. Janette says that's my brother. It was one of those freaking moments where you're thinking. Is anybody watching like this just happened. It was so bizarre. Anyway i had so much fun with them. That i think of them as family and i can't wait to go back there and talk about my book. Is atheism dead. So i just wanted to tell people before tampa. I was in maine and it was a bizarre thing to fly from maine like the middle of maine all the way down from the northernmost part of the east coast all the way down to the southernmost but it was just a bizarre thing. I get stuck in dc all right so do we have time to talk about the i. Patra should we do that later. No we should. We should do that. That's very serious. It's something that's coming from the You yeah okay. Old health is a chapel. A second serious. I'm talking to mike pompeo and then we're gonna do the eye patch thing folks. This is real.
