"A great. But. All right. Get out of your head. Thanks. Thanks for the kind words. That's really nice. That's cool. Yeah. I think that there is a a moment here. You know, he he said something interesting about McConnell and the Republicans, and I'm going to go back and say this again, I don't want the Democrats to succeed because of Republicans fail that doesn't help us as a nation Fahmi just because they've screwed the pooch with Trump, and they screwed they screwed. I think screwed America by supporting some of the ridiculous things. Like this. You know, this tax forget frantic government that you know, kowtowing to everything that Trump's here's a good example of of what I'm talking about here. I saw I saw this article. And it doesn't surprise me at all that I mentioned earlier that there was a North Dakota GOP candidate for the US Senate who came out and said, you know, what's the problem if somebody rapes somebody is it really disqualifying? Here's a new one a Trump. Pointed official who's gonna enforce anti-discrimination laws wants us the N word in a post and questioned whether the use word was racist. The guy's name is this Washington Post reported back in two thousand four the consumer finance protection bureau employees. Eric Blankenstein wrote to slur on a political blog called two guys. Chatting. Blankenstein wrote. He said, I let's say they just called him the end board would that make them racist? Or just a host looking for the most convenient way to get under somebody's skin. So this is a guy whose job it is still enforce anti-discrimination laws. But in the last decade fifteen years now, fourteen years now found it, okay? To write the N word on a blog that was online again who knows maybe ten people saw it. But it's feeling comfortable to talk like that. Right. Exactly to act like that is kind of at the heart of the cavenaugh thing to the the the way that men act around women tells you something because about them in the larger sense, and I'm not even talking about Kevin I here, but it might apply. Let me just say this. So and I've said this before I judge a lot of guys by the women. They choose in their lives, especially if I don't know him that. Well, right. I'll meet somebody and I'll see the way they act toward their wife or their girlfriend, and I can make a judgment. It's almost always write about them, if they treat her in a way of respect where they value her opinion. And when she speaks they listened with real interest, and they don't they don't talk over her or they don't subjugate her if she acts like she's got always kind of serve him in action nervous when he liked my need something. I think the guy's weak, and I know couples like this where you look at the guy and think that guy's a strong guy, but he's weak emotionally and psychologically week because he needs a woman to we'll just sending in for subjugate to dominate to to be to always be at his his beckon, and he can't be alone. So I look at a guy like go. I don't wanna be business with somebody like that. I don't be friends with somebody like that. And which sucks sometimes because I really like her. She's nice. But we don't want to see him as a couple. I mean, how do you have couples you like one and not the other and in my past there have been? Yeah. Oh, we have this all the time. And especially we're living in San Diego. Because there'd be like, you know, the guy might be kind of Trumpy, you know, but I'm like one of those can't keep your mouth shut. So she's not going to say. And I'll say if I had sign, right? I know I know, but you won't I mean when you meet a couple like that in the guys like that. And sometimes. There have been couples where we didn't like the woman, and we went out to dinner once and she was mean to the waiter. I was like, that's it. I really like the guy, but you know, and and so you know, that I get it goes both ways all the most the time. It's the guy I've never met Brad Kavanagh. And so I can't respond. I can just respond like you guys have from a distance here. John in San Jose. Thanks for calling in. Appreciate what's one on just wanted to mention how disconnected he is with everything. He started talking about how the steel industries doing so well and booming and I on episode on bike just yesterday on how the steel workers are planning to actually strike because they're not getting any raises the corporations are just taking all the tax cuts and all the benefits that Trump is giving up and not asking it onto any of the workers. I tell everybody when people say the economy is booming. I say just put push Trump aside and read the Wall Street Journal, read go online and read the articles on CNBC, not exactly a leftist rag, right either one of these and the all point. Trouble signs in the economy, huge trouble sides. But you would've thought I mean if you bring it up he says fake news. But it's not the Washington Post. It's not the New York Times. It's it's right wing Republican. No is there anything further to write than a Wall Street Journal. No, I it's amazing. It's amazing. I can't believe I am. So, but they're even saying they're pointing your trouble signs in the economy, and especially the deficit that's gonna blow through the roof a year and a half from now with these tax cuts from two thousand nine hundred. I don't know where we're going to get this money to do all these things. He's talking about much. That's twenty five billion for freaking stupid wall. Yeah. Well, I know I feel bad. If I thirty five years old right now, I wouldn't count on anything being there in thirty years. Hey, thanks for the inside. But I appreciate all right. We'll tell you a little bit about what's happening tomorrow. What to expect to end? Maybe nothing. There's always that possibility. Although it's almost ten o'clock back to cancel it. I think they might do a crack ass tomorrow. We don't know. They'll probably go through with it. And then maybe might with Dr I think it all depends on how she performs and your expectations. You got to keep it short. So how much time eight oh eight oh, eight one. Oh hardy who will do better. Not who's right or wrong who will do better under cross examination. Amar? That's next..
