You Hoodwink to be yeah so that was that was funny and I feel like I just had to bring that up. Stacey Dash gets arrested. Twenty nineteen is some shit so wild stuff happening at twenty nine now and like you said let's get let's get to the good stuff and that is the quote unquote. Wednesday night wars and that's where we're kicking it off just happened what day ago both were. Awa abused viewing on. TNT annexed third week I to our show on USA and we have I mean by. All metrics are very successful. My impressively the numbers are coming out on a W. They believe they did one point four one eight they're doing the rating is at one point eight one point eight which was crazy smackdown numbers that is the highest premier in five years routine ity so that is great and exte- you did half of that at just under nine but again annexed. He's been on there for three weeks. People say what they want. They wanted to jump on a W. You know it was something about a w premiering and we've had annexed on TV. You know like if exte- was debuting. I think they would have done a higher number. They probably I mean the first week what they were one point two one point three on their first week so I mean they probably would have done even more like a one point eighty five it would have been one point eight one point five so people were acting like oh an exceed crushed but this is their third week so their first week numbers there there are all right and it's great though again we don't have to it's the Wednesday night wars. We don't have to continuously compare the two in a negative way. We can compare them in positive the way they were both really good. Shows definitely both did really good numbers like I. I really like what Wednesday has for pro wrestling so much so that I started to get a fuck about Mondays and Fridays. Yeah I mean saying this and I said this on twitter anybody outside like when the when the Monday night wars were happening me and my boys would watch every Monday night flipping back and forth right and there was never there was never time with either of us. Well me and remote nobody it was we those every time we'll be like man. W W is better than WCW like was not like a war. We generally intrigued going back and forth because it was exciting. I didn't want to miss anything. You know. You don't WanNa Miss Square better main event so you were excited to go back and forth. I never picked a side. It's a WCW started become trash but I didn't pick a side before that I just enjoyed both shows for what they were. Lodhi also do the same instead of going into this going with. Aws Aws. That'll connects this next to you is that just watch the fucking shows and enjoy it. I don't know about this year like very hard for people like people feel lake and that's with everything right. That's like y'all I hate mainstream hip hop I need underground hip hop and they pick underground artists and then when that artists becomes uh-huh mainstream Oh. I can't stand that they sold out or they're not cool anymore like aws that they're underground there the nice shiny new toy but sooner or later they don't book themselves underground promotion like they're going to be legit. They're going to be mainstream. They are and they did one hell of a job with Promo. Those commercials pills were everywhere including on Monday night raw for weeks. They degrade placement for the wrestling product so I expect it to stay in the one point point two one point one range now. Are they going to do one point eight every week probably not but they don't have to. It's one of those things where obviously you know. People look at these numbers but anything that premieres always used POPs the highest rating. It's either the premier in the season finale. Wrestling doesn't really have a season finale so it's always going to be the so-called premier and this was the debut a w. So one point number is huge. I will say this that annexed teams attempt to counter program while it was a fantastic show on. I don't know if necessarily surly went the way that they thought it would because they've really stacked the deck for an exceed this week to count program. Aws and the reason why I say this. I don't think they had to. I don't think he needed to have three title matches to counter program Awa. People were just going to watch it anyway because you can't do that shouldn't every week but teaches own own desperate they did. I just think both shows were great. I got a chance to flip ahead on split screen. I have a direct. TV picks not fiction fish about live side by side and my TV is big enough waxing both very clearly and I watch both shows and there were great things that happened on both shows are things that are a little shaky on both shows but I mean everything is going to be a home run. Everything is not going to be Tokyo domer- WRESTLEMAINIA. They're all going to have their ups and downs and I think as a wrestling fan. You should really soak it in. Just enjoy see what's crazy. Is that people say like. Oh well annex not. They did all these to counter program. I don't think they did no. It's a big week at the WWE so awa regardless. This is his season premiere week being in television. This is the first week that ratings count. This is the first week sweets. There's a reason why w debuted you'd this week. There's a reason why Fox is going to television this week. So that being said with an x t there is a reason season. They tried to stack this card is because this is the beginning sweeps and nothing you do before sweeps or inbetween sweeps periods matters at all they only judge you for as far as getting sponsors and getting television ad revenue and all that stuff for what you do during sweeps and they stacked four four suites now. It just happens that everyone stacks it but that's like say oh well. ABC Has Big Bang Theory CBS Big Bang Theory Very by ABC. Has this common they. They did that to counteract Big Bang theory. No did it 'cause it sweeps. Everyone put out their best foot forward. The first week sweeps. He's that's what he did. That's that's the nature of having television product which will see more and thinking these suites periods. Here's why I disagree with you. They knew what they were doing to counter program. Why because they chose to air on Wednesday nights they air at they chose to go to network television vision on Wednesday nights and they try to do a two weeks in advance to get a leg up on a w to sit to suggest this had nothing to do with what W was was doing doing is ridiculous and I argue. They would be better debuted the same night they would have but this is what the plan was. That's what I'm saying. I don't know if they're playing work the way they if they wanted to. They tried to get a jump on on aids of you by having that one hour for the past two weeks density rick does a direct reaction into a that wasn't on TV. Do you think annexed doing this two weeks in advance. I don't think so no they probably should just played it as debut when when all over TV shows debut exactly that and that's what I'm saying it was reactionary to that they didn't have to. They didn't have to make soul obvious that they were counter programming Awa dynamite. They didn't have to send out like a courteous like hey good job. Guys human sounds like that sounds like me getting ahead of getting beat and be like good pop guys before everybody says because they saw the ratings before everybody else. If you look at the timing of the release it was like yeah but they don't they don't have to do that and it's a great program. You know what's crazy. Is that miss what I told people from jump one eight. WS competing with annexed to annex t is chasing a e w this is monetarily not quality wise but monetarily the wwe third brain so when the dulling rolling when it comes forever when it comes to noling out resources careful when it comes to getting the money from Saudi Arabia from Fox and saying we're going to allocate these funds between brands we are going to give them to Fox and smackdown I now we're going to give them to Ross second because it's a flagship and then we will give more funds than ever had but third in the company to annex t so WWe's competing with aws with their third brand financially for now so that's the thing though that's the interesting thing about at this with this Wednesday night war. I think we can all agree that..

You wanna contest the election. These Democrats have made a mockery of Arkansas is elections for long enough. Now they think they can tamper with a federal election. I'd say it's high time, someone held them accountable that winter John Clayton began making preparations to appeal his loss to Breckenridge. It's hard to blame him considering the elections many irregularities, and the narrow margin he'd lost by less than two tenths of one percent of the total vote.

Oliver Bentley took his brother to visit a saddle shop in moral tin. The shop was owned by William wood, no relation to Albert would another of the sheriff's deputies who had ridden with brothers on election night. Hey, all over. Hey, George Howdy.

According to reports all over Bentley was examining a Smith and Wesson, revolver. When the gun accidentally went off shooting his older brother in the head and killing him instantly Oliver must have been very clumsy because he accidentally shot, George five times.

"On just a bunch of things to try to catch up on the new year. It is it is. It has been an interesting start twenty nineteen for sure. And let's let's let's talk about the. The year as it has kicked off. Well, Conway county is been tweet. And again, it's always amusing. I I don't base how my day goes based on what Konya things or who he decides with what he's up to. But it's always always always amusing because he is an independent thinker. And with that, you never know. It's kinda like Forrest Gump said life is like a box of chocolates. You just know you just never know what you're going to get you never know what you're going to get with Kanye west. Here are his here. His tweets to open up yesterday afternoon for twenty nineteen and by the way, you can follow him at Kanye west. He jumps in at two thirty two in the afternoon and says they will not program me. And then he tweets a minute later. Blacks are ninety percent Democrats that sounds like control to me. Spoke with Joe Rogan podcast coming soon, then he has three fire emojis. From now on I'm performing with my I can't say that word or those two words hat on. Just so in two thousand nineteen you know, where I stand, and then he has another emoji which looks like three dragons and the last the day at least for that afternoon. Was Trump all day? So cartier. Hey, he is kicked off twenty nineteen. Never is never ever boring. So we turned from Konya to Mitt Romney the the not so lovable loser. Who begins his Trump bashing with an op-ed where else in the Washington Post headline for the opinion Mitt Romney says the president shapes the public character of the nation. Trump's character falls short and this from the Washington Post yesterday. Here by the way, he is the incoming Senator of Utah. One of the two, of course. The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December the departures that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly, the appointment of senior persons of lesser experienced the abandonment of allies who fight beside us and the president's thoughtless claim that America has long been a sucker in world affairs, all defined his presidency down. It is well known that Donald Trump was not much choice for the Republican presidential nomination. Oh my God. You don't say mitt. Really willard. Okay. After he became the nominee. I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name calling. It did not when he won the election. I hoped he would rise to the occasion, his early appointments were encouraging but on balance his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions. This month is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office. To a great degree presidency shapes the public character of the nation. The president should unites and inspires to follow our quote better. Angels, the president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity and elevate the national discourse with mutual respect as a nation. We have been blessed with presents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit with the nation so divided resentful and angry presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable ended in this province where the incumbents shortfall has been most glaring. The world is also watching America has long been looked to for leadership our economic and military strength was part. I can't read anymore the stuff. Okay. So there's Romney. Here's a guy. Let's consider the source illness, and we're going to go through this op Ed just a little bit. Here's a guy who had a very winnable election in two thousand twelve and completely choked the economy had tanked unemployment numbers were ungodly high. And all he had to do was lay the basketball in you had been Ghazi go down. And he backs away from it. Mitt romney. Is one to be calling somebody? Of a character that fall short because when it came when it came when it was go time in two thousand twelve he had conservatives and those of center reluctantly lined up behind him. But he could not motivate them to get to the polls on election day when you have a slam dunk, and you can't even motivate people to get to the polls to vote for you. That should tell you. Something about yourself Mitt Romney, you need to look in the mirror before before you go off on President Trump and character is one facet. It's one spoke of the wheel of a presidency and we owe on this. And and we talk about and we hearken back to the days of character. And we talk about how awesome character should be. And how it should be such a big facet. And let's not forget. I mean, if we're gonna talk about this, a let's let's talk about. Character is not the all being it's not the number one quality for president. Is it helpful? Absolutely. It is. It is helpful is it the number one quality. No, you need a leader and leader is actually an amalgamation of all various qualities you've got character. But you also have to have leadership ability you have to have flexibility, you have to have communication skills. And I think Mitt Romney is intimidated by Donald Trump. If you remember after Trump won Trump had a meeting with Mitt Romney under the guise of perhaps looking at him for secretary of state member, they went out and had dinner and Mitt Romney was trying to spill the beans a little bit about that. But you keep your mouth shut Romney. We had a meeting you had the honor of being considered for secretary of state when you couldn't even win a slam dunk election for president. Of course, you wind up in Massachusetts because you were given away healthcare like Santa Claus with your Romney care. Of course, you could do that. It's easy to throw throw money. That's not yours at the people get credit for it. Good for you. I know I noticed your daughter. Ronna is not coming to your defense of this op, Ed. She's a spokesperson for the GOP. She's not coming to your rescue on this. But yeah character is important. I'll agree with that. But it's not the all being if you wanna look at character, you can you can have all the character in the world. But if you don't have a fighting spirit, if you don't have the leadership qualities here and get your butt kicked. How many times have we heard in use a sports analogy where we've had coaches even here in Memphis, and you've had coaches elsewhere in the college ranks and then the pros. Well, he's a nice guy. But you know, what you know, what's always after the, but it's never anything flattering. He's a nice guy. But you can't go. Foreign eight are three nine six and six. They haven't character. And being a nice guys. One thing. You can clean up a program. But after a while, you gotta be a winner too. And I think that's he doesn't get that about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is a winner is he a politician? He is by character because he's a negotiator. And that's what politics is negotiating. And look what he's doing with the shutdown. He staying at the White House. He's working. In the meantime, you've got Nancy Pelosi getting demonized for hanging out in Hawaii. During the shutdown. He's thrown this on the Democrats. You have to be a project manager. You gotta be a negotiator. You gotta be a communicator. I don't think Romney gets that. So folks, I'm just giving you a warning. Now, he's Jeff flake two point. Oh, he's gonna come in and try to make a point in torpedo because he's part of that establishment. And that's why he could not win in two thousand twelve. The only way to to to have defeated Barack Obama. And I'm going to give him credit on this is he was able to firewall himself using the establishment Republicans to. Really downplay turnout of conservatives Brock Obama was a winner. Was he a great president? I don't I don't think that he was a great president. I mean, we're he some of his policies were having to undo to get the country back on the right track. But he was a winner. And I'll readily acknowledged that because it's all part of the game. You got you got to be able to set yourself up for victory, and he was able to do that not once but twice. And Rodney couldn't even do that. In the economy was tanking. How about that? I'm sure we'll hear more from Mitt Romney in the days ahead is he? Does his little game in the Senate?

"Marquan yea on the way, including when he starts dropping bombs, and whatever and the president sat there interesting. And I'm really looking forward to playing the clips not only 'cause it's entertaining. And it's hilarious. And it's crazy. But there's we can talk about mental mental illness each one of the issues he brings up in his crazy crazy ways probably worth discussing Sean just explained the opening clip to me. Now, I understand what he was talking about can't get it. All right. Great right now, though, let's turn to Aaron Katersky. Award-winning ABC news correspondent who is reporting today on the wobble if not crumbling. I hate this story of the case against Harvey Weinstein in New York. Hello, Aaron how are you, sir? Hey, guys. I mean, it's either one of those right? I mean to either a wobble, or it is sort of the the first step in the dismantling of the criminal charges. And it depends on who you ask what the development means when the Manhattan District attorney's office agreed to drop one of the sex assault charges that Weinstein face. There are still five others about the defense is now working to get those dismissed as well now are those five formerly six charge. From one person or a number of individuals. There are three different accusers that comprise the criminal case and count. It was dismissed involves accusations made by the actress Lucia Evans, she says that in two thousand four Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him and since Weinstein's arrest. Some evidence has come to light that she has given inconsistent accounts. And in fact, gave an account that is at odds with her testimony. The grand jury that may suggest the encounter was consensual. Okay. That's interesting in the prosecutors. Brought that forward right. Prosecutor did in a letter to to to the judge and to the defense saying, hey, look, we we found this evidence. After the fact, and we wanted to let you know and voluntarily the prosecutors decided to drop the case, they probably didn't have much of a choice because the way the statute of limitations in New York is structured a an ordinary sex assault does have a shelf life, but the when when it's a forcible sex act as alleged then there is no statute of limitations that doesn't apply. But if Lucy Evans account could be, you know, a little wobbly, and and it could be construed that. The what took place was a little different than what was alleged the charge may not have held up. It's all fine. I don't care on what charges he goes to jail. I just I like everybody. Think in the world wants him to be in jail. Forever. Long time is he still didn't end up in jail based on the other charges the way they look. Well, the defense says that this one charge being thrown out teams the entire case in they are pushing to have the whole indictment dismissed in part because and help it does not help. And and I think prosecutors were hoping that if you get rid of this one, you know, he can say at tainted on the courthouse steps, but when trial comes he won't be able to argue it's like last week, if you had somebody who could have said, let's get this off and weird gang rape woman outta here early. So everybody isn't talking about that crazy one. Yeah. Good parallel. Hey, Aaron are you reporting it all on the allegations that the NYPD may have illegally coached a witness? And that's that's part of this as well. In in in why the defense believes that that the Lucienne Evans matter taints, everything because in addition to a differing account, there is also a suggestion that she was improper. Coached by an NYPD. Detectives before she testified before the grand jury. This was a lead detective on the case. And it's someone who according to a court filing told her less is more. You know, the stuff where it could have been construed as consensual leave that out you just say this stuff. And and and of course, the disclosure rules before a grand jury in this state requires that the grand jury get a full picture of the of the case and the evidence. And so it's thought that the the NYPD detective really did mess up now. Here's a difference of opinion. The defense says well, it taints the whole case because this detective could've coached other witnesses was the lead detective in the whole investigation. Prosecutors say that he only was involved with the Evans, and so if you throw out this one charge, it's not like the defense would be able to call him as a witness later on trial. All right fair enough. I guess we'll wait and see Aaron Katersky. ABC news, Aaron thanks very much. Thank you. And it's certainly worth mentioning that some of these filings and allegations the counter alligators are coming from the many many millions of dollars worth of lawyers that Mr. Weinstein is higher. Oh, sure. And you know, he's got people looking into the background of the prosecutors. The cops the women their agents hard at work. I'm sure trying to come up with anything the muddy the waters if he walks out of that courtroom of Freeman that'll be right up there with OJ in in terms of injustices that have happened. Yeah. The massad and how to grow carrots were two of the only topics Kanye didn't touch on this Oval Office. Visit yesterday we've got more of that coming up in just a few minutes.
