Tupac: The Black Leader We Need
"Tupac, the last three albums he recorded, two of them have so much to do with him talking about his mortality. And there were a ton of examples. The video for the song Iron Man at gets to me because it depicts him getting shot and going to heaven. And that was recorded just weeks before his death. And you've heard me say that beyond his work in the studio or on a Hollywood set, I'm absolutely no doubt that he would be the single most important figure in black society today. I mean, he would be the one who put together a Black Lives Matter movement that made a difference, but his wouldn't have been corrupt and Marxist. Tupac would have absolutely been the black guy with the business sense and the street Cred, not to mention the charm and the generosity and the empathy to walk into the oval offices of every president from Clinton to Bush to Obama to Trump even Biden and get shit done.
Kathleen Madigan on Why People Have a Personal Connection to Trump
"That's an interesting sociological thing 'cause you play all over the country. What is it? Do you think? What is the personal connection to Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know why, like one lady in Florida. She was kind of a drunk grandma. You stood up in a balcony and a theater somewhere on the gulf side of Florida and said, Kathleen, I love you and I love Sarah Palin. Don't make fun of her. I had not said a word except Sarah Palin, comma. Now if the lady would have listened, my joke was really about the gist of it is there's no people in Alaska to have more respect for you if you were the game warden than I would if you said you were the governor because there's a lot. It's a lot more dangerous if you're okay. It's a stupid joke. It's silly innocuous. But that lady was so upset because she like, I don't know. I'm like, you can't love me and her. And you're at my show, so I'd pick me if I were you. Which one is it? I don't know what the Trump thing you could do any other Republican, any other Democrat and people do not lose their minds. There's something about I know this is going to sound snotty coastal liberal elite, but an education problem where they're just like, oh, I want people that sound dumb, like me. I just can't. I don't understand what the connection is. I it could go back to the, you know, George Bush, people are like, I'd like to have a beer with him. Right. Well, right. You might want to have a beer with me, but I shouldn't be running anything. I mean, just because I seem fun, which I am. You are that doesn't mean I'm qualified to work at NASA. I don't understand that leap. When people say, I think George Bush seemed fun too. The younger one to have a beer with after golf with a country club. I get it. Right. But what is that next level where I defend him like I would, my brother. It's weird.
Conservatives, We're Not Doing As Badly As We Think
"Even a week or more than a week, week and a half after the midterm election, the result still seems perplexing, we haven't quite put it all the pieces together, figuring out what happened. And we aren't sure how really badly we did. It seems worrying on many fronts. But there are a number of encouraging developments as well. In fact, if you were to say, are we use the old Reagan question? Are we better off than we were before the midterms? And or even flashing back to a year ago, the answer is politically speaking, we are better off. And there's a very interesting there's a fellow who did a little summary of some good things that have happened. He makes a kind of a list. And he goes cheer up. He goes, we're not doing as badly as we sometimes think, or we're not doing as badly as we feel. He goes and here's his list. I'm just going to go through it and kind of comment on it. He goes, Trump is running. So this is obviously a Trump strays excited that Trump is running. He thinks that that is, you know, that brings back the prospect of the Trump era, which despite all the division and all the screaming and even some of Trump's own iras ability, they were very good years economically and very good years, even on the foreign policy front. Number two, Florida completely rad. This is a huge development. This is a state that's been a swing state. In fact, been a swing state going back. Remember the Bush gore election of 2000, which all hinged on Florida, and it was split right down the middle. And it was split right down the middle, even when desantis ran against Andrew gillum, the last time around, and the Santa squeaked out the narrowest of victory. So this is a very good thing, Florida, completely red.
Where's the Talent on Our Side? Joe and Victoria Weigh In
"So big issue we've discussed, where's the talent on our side? The big, big brains. And I don't want to I'm looking. You know, it's not just the last four years of Trump. I would say from the aughts onwards, we didn't have the gingrich's, the bakers. We didn't have the people who were, you know, the good Machiavelli's of the right inside the building. Did we not cultivate them? Did they all go off into the private sector? Give us explanations. Well, the bush people don't cultivate new talent. They're not interested in it. They don't care about it because it's all about them. It's a network. That's why when Jeb Bush ran in 2016 and that famous, okay, you can applaud now. That's because that was a sense of entitlement. And they surrounded themselves with the same players, the same tired old people who didn't understand what's changing in American politics. There are great talented people out there. We just haven't done a very good job of cultivating them. And again, I blame ronna mcdaniel. I believe the blame Rick Scott. There's all kinds of wonderful talented people. The guy from Wisconsin, who was the first chief of staff for president Trump. Ryan. Brian's priebus. What did they do to bring in great new brains? What they did? They went and got the old people from the Republican national quote to quote on exactly this issue, just to give it a little bit of a flavor a little bit of color. I think it was some rag Vanity Fair or something. Bannon gave an interview about the first four weeks in The White House, and he actually used this phrase when we needed 4000 positions filled. Presidential appointments. He said, I sat down with reince and we, quote, made a drug deal with the RNC to fill those positions. And it's really quite remarkable that we achieved what we did, given the fact that the old schlep of the skull and crossbones and all the good old boys filled those positions. They went and found every rhino they could, and president Trump had a rhino in charge.
Amber Athey: Debate Is Welcomed if DeSantis Runs for President
"Know I'm getting some commentary from listeners They say well a desantis Trump primary is going to be really destructive It's going to destroy the Republican Party you know it's very apocalyptic to talk It's very like book of Eli so I don't buy it amber I just don't see any evidence of that I mean the Obama Hillary thing was a disaster for both of them went on forever and it made Obama sharper and made him build out his donor list and be more aggressive And he won I mean Trump fought off what 16 competitors who even knows in 2016 he went on to win you had a brutal bush McCain primary bush won I mean I just don't see any evidence that primaries are inherently destructive to a future campaign after you win No I don't see that either and frankly I would kind of welcome the debate if desantis does end up running I don't think that the assumption should be that it's going to be Trump I think he has a lot of things going for him I feel very conflicted about the issue frankly His endorsements in the toss up races in the midterms didn't pan out very well I didn't think it was necessary for him to attack two of the party's most popular governors heading into the race but he's also the father of the GOP realignment and how to really good presidency So I think there's some things going forward against him and the party should absolutely be having that debate I think my biggest issue right now is that the fact that he announced last night has over shadowed a lot of the other conversations about who else needs to be held accountable in the GOP for the lackluster performance last Tuesday and it's allowing a lot of these really bad actors to escape accountability for their own actions or inactions and helping the party win
Amber Athey: Pres. Trump Gave a Measured, Disciplined Speech
"First first things first last night was the Trump speech You know it's interesting I'm trying to cover it in a really kind of sober way so everybody feels comfortable here regardless of who you're going to support in the primary Everybody knows my personal feelings I've aired them a thousand times but I thought the speech was different for Trump because it was very issue oriented And it was characterized by a lot of people is boring Which is interesting because I think it was any other politician amber would be characterized far differently but because we're so used to Trump and the bombast and he's just his general temperament during speeches that he's just almost can't win when you're him anymore You stick with the issues you're boring you go off the cuff and say stuff you're a lunatic you know your Hitler or something like that He's gonna rough spot your thoughts on the speech Yeah I mean I like to see it I think it was pretty funny to watch people characterize it as sleepy or low energy hearkening back and forth to Trump's own attacks on Jeb Bush back in 2016 because typically the words that would be used to describe a speech like that would be measured or disciplined or focused It doesn't get that luxury And I like that he talked about the issues and again it's kind of funny to hear the same people who constantly accuse Trump of being divisive and overly bombastic Also criticize him for the speech that he gave last night But I gave it a good review I like the speech I thought that he did a good job of contrasting his own presidency to the current administration and just sounded really hopeful and optimistic for the future which I think is what the country really needs right now
Trish Analyses What's Changed Since 2016
"Go back to 2015 and 2016. So what was unique about Donald Trump in 2015, 2016. He was the anti politician, right? And there's something very, very appealing about the guy who's just going to say anything, especially when you're up against the woman who was so controlled and so contrived. I'm talking about Hillary Clinton and so frankly despised by so many Americans. She was not well liked. She didn't have that sense of humor that he seemed to display, and so he won. Now, one strategist once told me, and I thought this was very interesting. In some ways, 2016 was more about a vote against Hillary than it was for Trump. I think there's an element to that, of course, but simultaneously, I do think that people, they felt like he could do something different and they were desperate for different. We've been going down the same path and we've had the bushes and we've had that clintons and people wanted something new. And here was this businessman who had done some pretty exciting things in the business space and heck was a household name on the apprentice show, a very popular show and they thought, hey, why not roll the dice on something different? But a lot has happened since then, I still stand by what I said all along. It was a mistake to shut the economy down. That was the first red flag, if you would, in what was about to go wrong because at that point, the Trump administration effectively was just giving in if you would, too, those that really wanted to take control of things. And we became a complete failure as an economy. I think we did a lot of extra damage along the way, including to our children who spent many, many months over year right without getting in some cases proper schooling. So there was a lot of damage inflicted by that one decision. Look, I'm neutral on this. You know that. I'd like to see conservatives win, but I'm neutral on who would be the person, but I'm doubtful that we can get back to where we were in that 2015, 2016 kind of scenario where you saw this groundswell and you saw this momentum for so many people even crossing party lines,
Why Arizonan Voters Need to Cure Their Votes
"Let's talk about ballot curing. What is ballot hearing? So let's set the table what we were just talking about Charlie. If pima's drop for Carrie comes back, even moderately favorable, just above unfavorable. She's in this thing. What did Trump win that dropped by like 51 52? He won it. I think it was like 52, 48. And she's outperforming him and she's out there. She's outperforming. So if she gets a 54 or 55 vote drop, update of drops in pima. She's in this game. She just does. And that means that this race could come down to hundreds of votes. This could literally be Bush V gore Florida 2000. That's what we're looking at. That's what we're looking at. We're looking at Bush V gore. And now it all makes sense. That's why these psychopaths have walked this thing. It also makes sense the very vanilla tepid press release that Katie Hobbs released today. Well, here's the deal and let's not speculate too much, but let's talk about facts and how much this sucks for Republicans and why they screwed Republicans on this. So the process to cure ballots, curing ballots means that you're fixing your ballot. So if you sit in a mail in ballot, let's say you screw up your signature, or you have a random mark on it, or you don't fill it out properly, then they get set aside and they give you a chance to correct it. They gave you a chance to correct it. So they call you. They call you down. They vote or verify you, and then you're able to fix your ballot and get it counted. That's curing your ballot. Democrats have more. One second Andrew finished Tyler. Democrats have more than Republicans, typically, but Republicans are just really bad at this. We just basically most elections across the country. We just like phone it in, we don't do it. So right now I just came Charlie from the vote carrying center. We have literally hundreds, probably close to a thousand people. How do you lose if you have a thousand people ready to cure ballots on a Monday? Meaning like this is with strength. But it matters it matters who the person that needs their ballot curious. So there's a story that just came out today. We're going through the list and I won't say if it's a Republican or a Democrat, but they just discovered that a guy has been dead since like 2001 that had his votes in and that needed cured.
Gerrymandering Committee Proved Ineffective for Republicans
"I learned that the Republicans put a committee together To look at gerrymandering in the states and who among others was on this committee This guy seems to be behind everything and is a serial loser For us conservatives in the Republican Party Who was behind this too Cut 7 go They've vaccinated A senior editor at the nonpartisan cook political report said that New York's proposed map was such an effective gerrymander that it only wasted democratic votes in a few isolated places Even then we're stopped there for a second So it judges looked at this and told New York to fix it they really wouldn't and so they throw it out So it turns out New York turned out well But the rest of the country other than Florida in New York turned out very poorly for the Republicans Very poorly Go ahead It's a brutal map for Republicans Our guys just don't get it And I don't know about you but I felt relieved I thought were Lee when I saw Karl rove I think it was one of the Sunday shows where it's not mine I don't really remember it It was on one of the Sunday shows Because we all know Carl rove is the architect It was the architect of the 2006 Senate blowout by the Democrats And the great victory By George W. Bush in 2000 Which was ultimately decided via the Electoral College Nonetheless he's apparently on some committee that is helping to fight on the gerrymandering issue mister Purdue so that scares the crap out of me
What Should Be the Right's Top Issue? Larry Elder Weighs In
"No matter whether it's Trump, or it's elder, or it's desantis, or what do you think needs to be that top issue that Republicans are moving forward with? Because there's been a lot of controversy about whether or not we got the messaging rate, I feel like we did. I don't know how you can say that talking about people's pocketbooks and their safety is wrong. But what should it be? Well, it's pocketbook issues, but I do think we underestimated the power of a couple of issues. One abortion. The other one is this phone issue of so called election denied. When roe V wade got overturned, I wasn't terribly concerned about it, although there was a flurry for a while, threat on the part of conservatives, it's going to energize the Democrats. But I thought it was going to go away. I thought it had gone away. The polling suggested that it had, but the exit polling suggested that the polling was wrong. It was the number two issue after the economy and well ahead of crime. And so we got that wrong. And I think a lot of Republicans failed to convince people that the reality is all the reversal of growth did is put this issue back to the states where it was for the first nearly 200 years of our republic. What's wrong with that? And I think a lot of Democrats believe that rogue reversal romantic abortion was going to be illegal. And I think it was a bad move on the part of Lindsey Graham to suggest that there's going to be some sort of national legislation to codify restrictions on abortion. It should not be a federal issue either pro choice or pro life. It should be a statewide issue. And I think that scared a lot of people. Regarding the election denying nonsense, you know, Carrie Lake, I thought Hanley pretty well when she informed her voters that Hillary has been denying elections for 5 years and Stacey Abrams denying elections for two years and Al Gore to this day believes that the Supreme Court put George W. Bush in office Vinny Thompson the chair of the January 6th committee tried to overturn the election first week of January 2005 by claiming that the Ohio debo voting machines have been tampered with, there's no evidence that that my point is for 22 years Democrats have been denying elections. I think a lot of Democrats are unaware of that. The reason I know that is I was in Dallas at an airport just a couple of days ago, Jen, and I'm talking to this moderate self described moderate, professor, and he was talking about how he felt that election denying earth the Republicans on Tuesday. And I told him what I told you about Hillary denying election for 5 years. He said, and I quote, I never heard her do that. I said, professor with all due respect, you are part of the problem that
Caller Blames Donald Trump for Not Stopping Jan. 6 Insurrection
"I kind of blame Donald Trump, but it's not for this election for the midterms. I blamed him for not stopping the insurrection. And I know that you myself and a lot of people in this country are tired of hearing about that, but he was the president of the United States. That mass happened on his watch. He should have stopped that and had he would have that would have earned a lot of respect for myself and a lot of other people in this country and unfortunately, I'm guilty of it too Todd. When you go to the polls, you carry your emotions on your sleeves. And we've got to stop doing that. And as far as the polls go, what Carrie likes space and out there in Arizona, that's just sad. It really is. In my opinion, what happened in Florida back in early 2000s with Al Gore and Bush, they fixed that problem pretty quick. I don't understand why they couldn't have fixed that problem in Arizona or in Nevada. Really don't. So that's why it opens up the door for possibly conspiracy theory stuff going on.

Caller: Someone Needs to Talk to Pres. Trump Soon
"I'm not good Mark Unless somebody talks to Trump very soon we are conservatism is doomed in this country And that's because around it he's surrounded by sycophants that truth that he put out or tweet or whatever Everybody around him believes that to say this does not owe Trump anything but Trump thinks that the Santa owes him something And desantis has been great right now but and the media the media including all the bushes they're just goading Trump right now They're just goading him Which is what I've said And I agree with you a 100% You have the never Trump media You have the bushies and their ilk And unfortunately some conservative media they are goading Trump And he took the bait in my view What do you think Well he has He's definitely take the bait The only thing that will save him is somebody and I'm not kissing your ass here Somebody like you needs to talk to Trump And point out to him look as you said the other day he's not been coronated But if he gets primary he runs he gets primaried He's got to do it a lot differently this time If he goes against Chris E he can do the Christie what he did to Christie last time But he goes against the desantis or a cruise He's got to be he can't be so petty These people ask him so he can't all of a sudden just you know back in 2016 nobody hit back and he could be petty to anybody It's not going to be the case in 2024 He needs to have a lot more discipline
Might We See Trump Vs DeSantis
"The percentage of Republican voters who are willing to hop on board the Trump train again is probably really high, 75, 80%. Maybe more. The percentage of Democrat voters who will walk through fire to defeat him is 100%. And that's tricky math. It's tricky math. If we slide a desantis out there, I mean, they're going to hate him too. But there's something about Trump that uniquely triggers the Rob Reiner's. That uniquely triggers the joy reads, desantis will, too, but in the same way that any conservative presidential candidate would. So I sit here before you today and I just don't know what's in our best interest. I have told you that from the moment I haven't told you yet, I told my local audience. Well, is it three days ago? The Trump was at a rally. I think it was in Florida. No, it wasn't in Florida, but he was talking about Ron, referred to him as Ron de sanctimonious. I did not like that. I did not like that. And not that I want to blow that out of proportion. But it gave me just the first aroma of the real unpleasantness, the real awkwardness, the real tension of a Trump desantis primary. Because I think Trump's going to think that he can dispatch desantis with the same kind of epithets that he did, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush. And that just ain't gonna happen. It ain't gonna work.
What You Get With Democrats in Power
"Give Democrats unfettered control with no obstacles and this is what you get You get massive amounts of illegal immigration You get an exploding drug crisis fentanyl killing our kids sanctuary cities all over the country exploding inflation and international crisis due to poor leadership I'm not again I'm not sitting here telling you that Republicans are going to be some you know Athenian godlike figures that are going to come in tomorrow and boom and snap their fingers and fix all these problems Unfortunately we got slubs on our side too The difference is the slums on our side have an emergency break And you know what that emergency break is Awesome Us Because we're the ones in primaries that get to pick these people and they're afraid of us Ladies and gentlemen you can't have it both ways okay There are people I'm not voting for the Republicans They don't do anything Yeah a lot of them don't point stipulated you win But some of them do And you can't say oh AOC and Cori Bush and the squad they control the Democrat party and control Biden and did all these bad things to me Yeah you know we can do the same thing folks Except AOC and Cori Bush and the squad and Bernie Sanders right Their ideas are destructive And our idea is actually work We can do the same thing If the power of numbers and the power of crowds works for the Democrats we're a small minority the Democrat party has pulled the Democrats to the far left and then made it an actual majority over time that why can't we do the same thing for conservatism Again I'm just asking questions about trying to be a smart ass
Conservatives Accuse DeSantis of Being an Establishment Republican
"Until yesterday when Trump labeled him Ron de saint ammonias. The America first, the America first crowd, was singing Ron DeSantis's praises. They were saying, oh, this is a great man. He stood up to Doctor Fauci. He reopened our businesses. He declared war on these radical school boards. He stood up for moms and dads. He stood up against the woke businesses like Disney World. He even went so far as to declare war on the gender mutilation surgeries for juveniles. Ron DeSantis is a younger version of Donald Trump. That's what they were saying, but now, and it's just amazing to see how all of this how all of this changes so quickly. On a dime, now those very same people are saying that Ron DeSantis is really a closet establishment Republican because he's got the support of the backing of people like the Jeb Bush. Now, folks, you can't have it both ways here. Here's my take on it. I think Trump made a mistake. And Trump, yes, president Trump can make a mistake. And I think that at this moment, here's what needs to happen. I get it. They may hate each other. I don't know. Trump says they're good friends. I don't know. I do not know, but one thing is clear. We got to knock off the nonsense. This is dividing the party and we can not have the party divided. Now I will say this. There is a Republican Civil War coming. And it will be ugly and we're going to get into all of that probably starting later this week, but right now, right now folks, we got to focus.
New Lesbian Rebel Wilson Is in Love but NOT Engaged
"You know, for a day, let's say for a day or so, it was thought that America's newest lesbian Rebel Wilson and rebel from pitch perfect, she's the newest lesbian. It was believed that she was engaged to her girlfriend Ramona, a groomer. They made a 7 months and people assumed the question was asked and, you know, they got engaged. Because they were making out in a corner and telling everyone how excited they are to be engaged. That's what they said as a constant meanness tequila Halloween costume party. You know, George Clooney's tequila? The party Heathrow is on Halloween that he never attends because he's got a life now in children and they will both sporting diamonds on their ring fingers and people said the question was popped a couple of weeks ago. Let me ask you something. Why would two lesbians wear rings on their ring finger to show their engaged? And then only come out to say, no, no, no, we're not. Except to say they just want God damn it tension. You know, rebel was she loves a joke. She turns everything into a joke. She said, well, I was doing a thing called hot girl summer. I heard about it in rap songs and I was like, that sounds fun. But it really wasn't me a little bit more of a conservative girl normally. The date a few people over the summer and I had a really nice time and apparently single and looking for the right person. That's what she said over the summer. And now in love, she was and all those talk shows when she was dating a Budweiser air and naps dairy free ice cream founder Jacob bush, but they split in February of 2021 after about a year together, he must feel like a real asshole now. How does it feel for your woman to leave you for a girl? And one hand, it's gotta hurt and suck but on the other hand, it's like, they might fault. She doesn't like dick. I mean, that's just like, don't blame me. Obviously, it's something wrong with her.
Inside Iran With Dr. Walid Phares
"Let's go back to what's happening inside Iran in that case. So if you look at revolutions, if you look at regime changes from the ground up, there's a pivotal moment where the dictatorship, it's that moment in Christmas Day 1989, where ceausescu is on the balcony, giving his speech, and the people say no, the secret police open fire, but then when he tries in escapes in the military helicopter, the pilot says he fakes an engine problem, lands the helicopter in the middle of nowhere. The local barracks arrests ceausescu and his wife, and does a military tribunal. There has to be that moment where the organs of state power say we will no longer persecute our fellow citizens. As in Hungary, for example, units of the police or the military handed over their weapons to the students, is that I know this is very hard because Iran, along with North Korea is a very hard target in terms of intelligence and open-source material. Are there any indications of fishes of factions of fractures inside the regime? Could we imagine some units somewhere of the pasta run or somebody saying very legitimate questions have actually. Because that's the key. And I haven't been asked this question before. Let me tell you my experience. I've been following this since 79. I was a kid at the time. And what these units inside the guard or mostly inside the regular army would be waiting for. And let me jump to example or Eastern Europe. They did it because in Washington there was a strong leadership of Reagan Bush Reagan tear down that wall, bush was pushing forward. There is a difference between demonstrators, young people, demonstrating and people who are in the units and the military they need guarantees what will happen to us. They want to feel safe. Voila. So as long as we have this demonstration as long as we have Biden supporting the regime. Yes, they need a voice. Now, if the Congress acts with the strong voice that will go with this, they will buy this. But without the administration or Congress or the Europeans, it's going to be difficult,
"bush" Discussed on AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
"All of this to resuscitate an absolutely dead career. She's staying on stage too long. She's popping up at these comedy clubs and expected to do ten or 15 minutes and she's blowing past the light and doing 35 to 40 and they're pissed off. But with the amount of people she's been pissing off this way, I wouldn't be shocked if she gets banned for any comedy club in LA. Now, she might get mild publicity, but as soon as the reason she gets banned is leaked out there, no one's gonna be in her side. Let me tell you something. The only thing I think she can do that will be successful is if normally or ever does a remake of Sanford and son can Leslie Jones play on Esther. She's a natural for that part and she'll knock it out of the park. But I for one am sick and tired of all these people, but their weight issues. What their gender situations, everything else they've got trailing behind them. I'm sick and tired of them pushing themselves on us and making us have to like and accept them no matter what. You know, you don't have to come into the fray or walk into a room with sharp elbows all the time. Fuck Christ almighty. It's endless. Every goddamn day there's another group of people who are trying to get involved and get in the middle of the room without doing it the nice decent way. They're ambushing people that they're shanghaiing us and they're using the goddamn left leaning mainstream media to do it constantly. I've had it and I'm going to call them out as long as I have to. And believe me, if that's my tact, I'll never be out of material the next fucking ten years. All right, in the meantime, that's it for me. I'm AJ benza.

"bush" Discussed on AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
"See Adam with Drew Barrymore, but now with Queen Latifah, it hurt the movie. But I can't shit on it all the way because Adam Sandler, you know, he said too many home runs with his movies over the years. It's not bad for a guy who started on SNL doing Oprah man and Cajun men. I'm not sure how hustle is gonna do in terms of getting their money back, but I'll tell you what did make me happy did you hear Disney's light year movie was a financial flop at the box office? There was some woke controversies that kind of trail behind this film and weighed it down, including a lesbian kissing scene and all ended up hurting Disney a company that doesn't know where to put their feet as they walk. Their stock is plummeting and I couldn't be happier. So the expectations for this movie of the origins of buzz light year, right? Very high expectations were through the roof for this latest movie in the Toy Story franchise, but it only got 51 and 51 million in change in its first weekend in the U.S. box office. Sounds like a lot, but it was slated to get a lot more. So it earned so little that it came in second at the box office behind Jurassic World Dominion, which was in its second week. That's not a good thing when you're premiering a movie as big as something from the Toy Story franchise and it can't beat Jurassic World, which I heard is awful in its second week. Now a lot of people have criticized the movie for replacing Tim Allen as the voice of buzz light year. And a lot of people say, you know, is it because Tim Allen is very conservative. He's got a lot of concern beliefs. Did that play a part in Disney's decision? What do you think? The title character of this movie was voiced by Chris Evans, who if you don't know, very vocal about his far left liberal politics..

"But I'll tell you what did make me happy did you hear Disney's light year movie was a financial flop at the box office? There was some woke controversies that kind of trail behind this film and weighed it down, including a lesbian kissing scene and all ended up hurting Disney a company that doesn't know where to put their feet as they walk. Their stock is plummeting and I couldn't be happier. So the expectations for this movie of the origins of buzz light year, right?

"That your identity is better defined by your emotional and mental attributes that your physical appearance in other words, try not to focus on what you think you need to fix or change about your physical self. Believe those who tell you they love you for who you are because they do. If it stresses you out, disregard any message you get that pressures you to love, everything about the body you live in when you're not feeling it. Now this part I love. Words are, of course, a social construct. Over time, people have created and distorted the meaning of many words, but except when it comes to generational trends in language, most words are here to stay. Here we go. This is the best thing she said. Often the words that hurt or insult us were developed as nouns or adjectives simply for the purpose of identification. But they're meaning and implications have since been twisted. Why should that stop you from using them? When in fact saying words like fat could help neutralize them and remove the stigma that so many have to live with. If you're overweight and you want to say fat, save that. In fact, as a registered dietitian and private practice, it was my overweight and obese clients themselves who sometimes encouraged me to do just that. And speaking of this bullshit, it's all connected again. It's all connected. Don't ask me the science behind it, but it's all connected. I tried to watch the new Adam Sandler movie hustle. About him being a long-term NBA scout turned assistant college for the Philadelphia 70 centuries. And he finds this special diamond in the rough, a 7 footer who can block shots with the best of them, but can also handle the ball at the point guard and shoot from 30 feet. And you look, I love Adam Sandler movies. I love him as more serious movies. And I love his passion for basketball. I haven't played hoops with him, but I remember one time, we passed each other in the street in Beverly Hills, and we hadn't seen each other for a few years, and that day he had a radio to his ear. And he's listening to a New York Knicks game. And he sees me, and he yells across the street, benza, the Knicks are blowing it. I love him..

She doesn't like that. It really upsets me, she said, when people say this is fake, it makes me so angry. I am a woman of character.

So despite all the hate and judgment she received, she said she's happy and in love with her new family. Married life with Marcello is wonderful. She said he doesn't fight with me. He doesn't argue.

You know, in this case, it's a woman who married and gave birth to a red doll.

And she also added that she no longer wants to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form. And all this is because Elon Musk openly tweeted a while back that he supports trans rights, but he hates the pronoun bullshit. He tweeted pronouns suck. And he's right. And that cost him his son.

"I'm sure they're very reputable and get this guys after being together for several months. She discovered that she was pregnant. By Marcello, it's true, she said Marcello got me pregnant. He didn't take care of himself and he didn't use a condom. He got me pregnant. I took the test. It was positive. I couldn't believe it either. So not wanting to have a baby out of wedlock, they decided they. She decided to make things official and they went and got married. Now, this is written in the newspaper jam press, which sounds like a very reputable pillar of news south of the border. But either way, being written about the wedding was wonderful, she said, it was a wonderful day for me, very important, very emotional. It rained a lot, but it was wonderful. For the moment I walked down the aisle to the end, it was just beautiful. Then went to the wedding night with my husband, Marcello, and we enjoyed our wedding night a lot. Now get this. If you think she's nuts, 250 guests came to this ridiculous fucking wedding and then the couple snuck off to a beach house in Rio de Janeiro for a weeklong honeymoon. And after the honeymoon, they welcomed their doll child match. Back in May, she gave birth in just 35 minutes at home. Was it doctor and a nurse on site again? They should lose their fucking license as these people. And she live streamed it to an audience of only 200 people. You know, she got 250 to go to a wedding.

Not even some big people should be at the grown-up table, and you've got family, and you know I'm right. So just admit it. But not in this new world where everybody, you know, everybody with a squeaky wheel gets the oil. The progressive left is so afraid to rattle anyone in the alphabet army that they're now willing to give anyone in the world a massive dose of attention. And some people really need to be shunned. Really? They should be shunned or at least called out or whatever happens they're just plain old shaming people. You know, shame is not such a bad thing. Shaming is a good thing. People nowadays, especially kids don't hear the word no, they're brought up, never hearing the word, no. And then when they become adults, they never get shamed and people need to shame certain people. So start doing it.

One night at that club and David Spade is there with this girl I was crazy about for a while. I've talked about her in the past. Her name is Christa Allen. Fun actress, sexy actress, et cetera and that's the girl I eventually introduced George Clooney to and then he whisked her off to Lake como for two years because one night on a date she couldn't stop talking about Clooney and I was with jelly. It was like me jolly and Chris Allen. So it wasn't like a romantic date. The we'd had those before now, the three of us are together interesting some good fun. At 40 deuce, and she starts talking about George. And I met George about two months earlier. We hit it off. And she's talking about him so much. I'm like, I gotta introduce these two. So I called him on the spot. And he's like, ah, it's late, you know, it's after midnight dead tart. I go, I said, listen to me. I actually called him an ass and said, listen, S, put a fucking hat on, get down the hill and come to this place right now. You're not going to want to let go of his girl. And of course he did and when he did, he came, the whole bar went bananas because he was there. And everybody bought him shots and with George would do very sneakily. He dumped the shot of tequila as feet and then drank the empty glass and no one noticed it, but me. And now he has a $1 billion tequila company. It's unbelievable how the world works. So he whisks her away to late comma. But that night when she's with David's fate, we're standing in the back of the club in a crunch of people by the back door.

"Hey everybody, AJ Benji here with fame is a bitch. This is your show for Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022. Let's call it worrisome Wednesdays. I don't like the way a lot of things are shaping up lately. I don't like it. Recording from the bathroom of the hotel, the kids are here in the main room. I am in the bathroom. So if the sounds a little different, don't fret, everything's gonna change within the next week or two as I move to a different location for a while and Agatha on the drop biscuit people send me some new. Stuff to record the shows from here on in. Better mic, a different, they're all different things that are gonna make the listening experience much better. So bear with me through this last bathroom day. I just saw that Paula Abdul, the great Paula Abdul, turned 60 years old the other day. And that makes me think of the time when she and I were talking quite a bit and we've actually went on a date, actually. I was 1999 or 2000 somewhere around there. You know, she was a huge hit on American Idol and I used to see her in the gang at my favorite restaurant back then in West Hollywood, I go after the show was done taping, Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell, Ryan Seacrest, and Paula Abdul and all head to the restaurant. Simon was already, you know, Simon was always pulling chicks on his lap. Ryan Randy were always avoiding chicks. Which I found weird. Or illuminating, and Paul was kind of like a little lost at the table in the middle of all that stuff. And one night my agent told me that actually my manager told me he was handling her for a little bit and I asked him, you know, look, can you ask her if I can call her? And she was a bit coy, eventually she gave up her number to my manager to call for me to call her. And this is before she was accused of all sorts of crazy shit, you know, drugs, et cetera. She was just the lovely Paula Abdul, you know, straight up now tell me, do you really make it want me forever? She was that chick, but now she had American Idol to, you know, put up on her banner. And we talk for hours, her and I and when I say hours, I don't mean to. Okay? She will go on and on about what you didn't like about the show about how much pain she was in, you know, what the producers do to the contestants to make it more dramatic. I mean, it just was spilling the beans left and right. That's why my friend Brian dump him, who used to co host American Idol with Ryan Seacrest. When I met him around 2006 doing celebrity fit club for VH1, he would tell me, man, you have no idea what goes on there. How the producers, you know, try to induce tears.

"About how Prescott was the Joe Kennedy he had a plan for his children. Did George H. W. Bush have a plan also for his children? I mean, obviously we all know about George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, and their political careers. But yeah, what was their ambitions for their kids? Well, you know, the thing is that, yeah, HW had a plan as planned was the jab was to chosen one. You know, there was always sort of a feeling that Jeb Bush was going to be president. That Jeb Bush had what it took. There was never a sense that W had what it took. Not ever. There was always a sense that W was kind of the screw up of the family. And Jeb was the serious person. But man, that's, you know, what they didn't take into account, I think was a W lacked and political finesse. He made up for in just sheer heart. And sometimes in politics, that's what matters most. Often in politics, in fact, it comes down to who would you like to have a beer with? Not so much who has the best policy as much as who is to kind of guide that you can just sort of hang out with. I think that might have been one of the reasons why Donald Trump was able to sort of rise to the top because it wasn't because of his political expertise. And let's be honest. It wasn't because of his, it wasn't because anybody actually sort of really believed he even had policy. Talking about before he became president, you know, when he was first running for president, his success, I think, my opinion was largely because he was just like he was a celebrity that people wanted to get to know. You know, that they felt like and they felt like they could get to know him. There was something about him that made people think that they could sit down and shoot the shit with Donald Trump. Which, by the way, it's kind of ridiculous because he is not that guy at all. I've interviewed Donald Trump many times. He's a nice guy. Don't get me wrong. But he's not the guy who's going to, you're going to hang out with. And have hot dogs with. That's not him. But you know, he managed to convince people that it was. And George, W Bush had that same kind of heart and it was really much more organic than Donald bush because George W. Bush really was that guy. Like you can really sit down with George W. Bush and have a beer. That I think anybody would agree with. And I think anybody would agree with you. You're not going to sit down with Donald Trump and have a beer. So anyway, I say that to say that Jeb Bush was also not the guy to hang out with..

The First Lady at that time, Ronald Reagan's wife, and sounded like many, many people had battles with Nancy Reagan for what I've read, yeah. It's so funny because people often come up to me and say, you know, I loved your book about Nancy Reagan. And I'm like, really, thank you, but I didn't write one. People just assume that Jay Randy terror really by now has written a Nancy Reagan biography. You know? And I have it. But that doesn't mean I won't. But she's such a compelling character. Nancy Reagan. She saw a strong woman. I mean, this is somebody who is a cut above all other first ladies. And she and Barbara Bush, you know, just had this sort of difficult tense relationship. And I really think a lot of it had to do with the fact that Nancy Reagan reminded Barbara of her mom. If you look at the pictures of Pauline and my book of Barbara Bush's mother in my book, you see a little bit of Nancy Reagan in her. I think that that triggered Barbara. And I think that I think that, you know, the fact that Nancy was critical of Barbara Bush. And critical of the bushes, and she called them the shrubs. Instead of the bush. You know, that kind of criticism reminded Barbara of her childhood. It triggered her and they had 8 years of complexity, which I wrote about in the book. And but I'm a big fan of Nancy Reagan's, but you know what, I'm a big fan of all first ladies. You know, I think that offers ladies have, you know, a responsibility and a job that is un it's not described. Like we know what the president's job is.

And in those movies, they get actors that really look like them. But when you're a kid, you kind of don't even really know if it's them or not them. But I remember her as being both the outspoken lady, but also sweet, you know, kind of like the national grandma. You present her as a complicated figure, which is just fascinating. So can you talk about her background and her parents? That seemed to have been a very interesting relationship. Well, you know, Barbara Bush is such a complicated person and I really admired her. And as I said, I interviewed her and I wrote about a lot of the dark the darkness of Barbara Bush in my book. Because I think that, you know, some of the trauma of her younger years is what contributed so much to who she became as an older woman. And, you know, she lost a daughter named Robin as a small child, you know, who had cancer and then died at a very, very young age. And I think a mother never gets over that. The relationship between Barbara Bush and Laura Bush was very strained at the beginning of Laura Bush's marriage. And in my book, as you were talking about Laura Bush, the wife of George W. Bush. Yeah, thank you. Laura Bush, the wife of W, when Laura Bush came into the family, she wanted Barbara to sort of treat her like a daughter, you know? Barbara already had a daughter and Barbara was just not that touchy feely kind of person. And Laura felt like it had something to do with her. And she asked her mother what do you think I need to do? Why is this the case? And Jenna Bush, Laura's mom,.

"So when we look at the women that had a huge influence that you covered in your book, obviously it starts with president George H. W. Bush's mother, Dorothy Bush. She was the matriarch. And president Bush was the president that who was in office when I was just getting cognizant of the world. And so I remember hearing about him, of course, Barbara Bush. And I'd hear a little bit about Dorothy Bush, she was the matriarch and you write so much about her. So what was her background? So here we're talking about Dorothy, the mother of president Bush. What was her story? Well, you know, she's such an interesting person. She's somebody that people don't know anything about. And I really recommend that you read my book because you'll learn a lot about Dorothy Bush. Who was basically a feminist before the feminism was even quite, you know, she's a person who just believed in equality in her marriage to Prescott Bush, by the way, these are George H W's parents, Prescott and Dorothy Bush. He was a senator, Prescott, and so she's a political wife, Dorothy. And she wrote a column in a newspaper for many years. And she wrote this column three times a week for years. And so when I was able to uncover these columns, it acted as sort of a blueprint for me to be able to reconstruct her life and times, and also her relationship with her family members. I can't tell you how invaluable it was, because you could imagine writing a column three times a week for like ten years. That's a lot of columns. As if she was speaking to me from the grave. So she is so interesting because she was so far ahead of her time and Barbara Bush, her daughter in law was much more of a conservative sort of traditional woman of her times, you would think that the older woman, which was Dorothy, would have been, you know, so it would have been much more conservative than the younger. And it was exactly the other way around. You know, I remember, I wrote in my book that when HW was campaigning for his Senate seat, oh no, when the thing was impressed car was campaigning, yes, when Prescott was campaigning, they tried to get HW to come aboard and campaign for his father..

I don't i don't think they have to be superhuman or saints to be able to be remembered and recognized for their dignity to be affirmed. And there's something remarkable about bogere uncle. You know the more i have. I spent time with his family even after his death. The more stories emerged of how deeply he led with love. Just how deeply. Even when on the day he was killed he was at costco buying those crates of flowers and he saw A jar at the checkout line to donate to the victims of nine eleven. He just emptied out his pocket. Everything had seventy five dollars he. He was looking for a flag to fly on his store on the day he was killed because he led with love it changed. His brothers was part of a big family and how they chose to respond to his death almost every year. In the last twenty years i returned to the gas station where it will be. Wrongful was murdered I sit at the spot where he was planting those flowers. I closed my eyes. And i make my promise bogere on glide promised to tell your story every year and and a few years ago. I went to make the promise. And that's when the hate violence was skyrocketing in rana his younger brother. Who's been trying to tell the story for at that point. Fifteen years turned to me and he said nothing has changed. And i said okay. Bogere uncle lead with love. Who is the one person we have not yet tried to love and sophia. The next morning we called his killer in prison. We called frank rogue and at first. Frank says while. I'm sorry for what happened to your uncle. But i'm also sorry for all those who were killed after nine eleven. He's not taking responsibility. But then rana listening to frank. He can hear what i can't hear. He keeps wondering about him right and he says offering. This is the first time. I've heard you say you were sorry and praying says yes. I am sorry for what i did to your brother. When i go to heaven to be judged by god. I will ask to see your brother. And i will hug him. I'll ask for his forgiveness. And ron says we've already forgiven you. Forgiveness is not forgetting we can never forget what has been taken from us. Forgiveness is not forgetting but forgiveness is freedom from hate freedom from animosity. And and i think that if if ron so d could you know could refuse to create another us versus them if he could refuse to let anyone outside of circle of care. Even what would happen if we could do that as a country it would be. Revolutionary will be incredible. I think about that.

You didn't know it was going to turn into documentary. You didn't have any background in filmmaking. I'm very curious about how you put the film together..
