"The preliminary information we have. We're all live right now. So what can you tell us this is very preliminary information. The fire department is on scene, and they're responding, but preliminary information is there was a helicopter that made a forced landing emergency landing, or landed on the roof of the building for one reason or another. There was a fire that happened, when the helicopter hit the roof people who were in the building said they felt the building shake the fire department believes the fire is under control. They may have been casualties involved in people in the helicopter. Many. We do not know, but right now, we believe the fire is under control. Again, casualties involved with the helicopter. We don't know what caused the helicopters land on the top of the building. But people in the building itself, nobody has been heard some people have been evacuated is all very preliminary. And the fire department is just in the midst of responding right now, as we speak, I wonder what goes through your mind when you hear some kind of aircraft into a building do not, not defining it as either a hard landing ornaments, juicy landing just at the helicopter landed on to use a word on the top of the building, which caused the fires.

As you were saying, before Utah speed variation that, that is the case, the only indication was a helicopter to do emergency or a hard landing crashed onto the rooftop of the building, causing a fire, but there's no indication of anything more than that, again, this is all very preliminary, and these situations all very quickly as we know.

Nice thing charity boxing event, that's wonderful and back to the coach Mike Reno hip coach years ago, I was talking about this off the air the NYPD and the F D N Y used to hold these types of boxing matches. And let's face it. You guys don't like each other. And but now no longer they don't do the boxing matches any longer because what the animus is too much or well with us in the cops. We respect the cops and the cops are do a great job. And we're brothers and blue through the day. But. Us and then the cop boxing team, we didn't necessarily we had some disagreements and we haven't boxed them in a couple of years. I'll tell you what it's like we've got a very good friend of ours. Not necessarily analysis. Don't start getting upset, but we have a friend who's gay. Right.

Friday was a midtown south detective, I won't say his name Brian Costello. And he says he he says that the cops and firemen hate each other.

We get along get along. Charts? What are you doing? We need to get along. Now. You're putting a fireman though. Not a cop, right? Yes. I'm fine.

Now, they need to have their their houses either fixed or made more accessible for them or they build them from ground up mortgage free accessible homes for whatever challenges. They now just for veterans about for what a cop or firemen gets injured in duty. They help you guys store mostly for veterans for now. I think is mostly for veterans slice, it would make sensible it.

Niagara was great stellar t best fire department in the world do respect all the fire departments, many of the men and women are unbelievable. And so they had the big funeral so Commissioner O'Neill's great comes on the air. And he says he'd like to give your acknowledgement to the pilot family to the F D N Y, you know, to his brother Commissioner Niagara. And wishing all the best to the FDA and white this hard hard time losing a firefight. Thirty years old heartbreak just Harper. So now, Frankie jumps in after that Brighi. Fibro jumps in happens is seen the those where the funeral was by marine park. In Brooklyn any the heat. Frankie says on the air. He goes, hey, if anybody's by their afterwards, or if you're waiting because when you're you have that big beautiful. Tribute is well-deserved tribute to the firefighters when we lose one and helicopters police, and there's a lot of police officers firefighters that while the funerals going on they have to be somewhere rather than just hanging out. Frankie says on the air go to Michael's a Brooklyn. Well, won't be. Oh, this is they all went to bike Brooklyn because they're all listening at how honored we are. By the way, the f the N Y listens to the show. And why PD we love you and just have such immense respect enough for you. So so all the firefighters Frankie went to Fred Frank called. We got a message on my God. There's hundreds of firefighters. And you know, I gotta give you Michaels in Brooklyn. And this isn't a commercial. I've nothing in front of me. We love Michael Brooklyn for being there with us from day one, Fred and Marianne and Michael himself you Johnny with us. Don't you know, Fred went ahead? And he make pasta on the house for us on the house to the firefighters who came in. And then I guess they all stayed for lunch after that, Frankie. This is a great story. So they went in for lunch, and they had lunch there. And I didn't I didn't. It was kind of spur of the moment. I didn't really give a heads up that I was gonna say the people should go there after the funeral. But but he happened to hear it and. He was prepared both in terms of extra food or extra staff people and. In the midst of their lunch. He gave them all pasta on the house, which was very very nice. And that's the kind of guy. Fred is if you haven't been to Michaels in Brooklyn, it's worth going there for the food is worth staying there. Just to hang out with Fred. It's so true. So Fred heard you earlier the board getting whoops. I better get ready. And indeed he did that was great. And that was just a just a that's such a great story. And by the way, that that's everything that's great about local radio, but local radio that that is a great service. You know, because it was a tough day for the firefighters, certainly for the politics a tough day all around and for if we want to Fred and everybody in a Brooklyn for stepping up for the elite F D N Y that that is really great. Great move, Frankie. Just just great radio right there. Hey, Joe on the radio and just so much you get into the day. But you can call is Bobby in still there guys from Staten Island. Bobby good morning. What's on your mind this morning, my friend? Thanks for calling in. Hey, joe. My thing is when you get a check cashing place. They charge. You one percent. Why it transfers to Mexico warm percent? Mexico pays little wall. Spotted on boom, boom. Thank you, very, Bobby. Exactly. And thank you for mentioning that. Thank you got to love you for calling in swear to goodness gracious. You make all the sense in the world. I gotta listen to the news and the politicians all weekend long ago on call from Bobby from Staten Island makes more sense than anybody and you call eight seven seven thousand seven hundred twenty nine ninety nine you make sense. I wish that that's what you do for the news, by the way. They spent so much money. Preparing a news executing new saying the right thing. Jim Acosta's down at the wall making a fool of himself. You know? Oh, my goodness gracious. We should just talk to the people just do what they call actuaries go on the street. You're going to get the news better than anything that the billions of dollars in news organizations send you know, send out to us. It's so true. Because when the president does the US MCA deal and replaces NAFTA that pays for the war. There is there are millions tens of millions of dollars going to Mexico going across the border, which is great the people come across the illegal. They work. They send the money back home. How great is that? But maybe maybe a little vague on that a little bit. Can we get something? We're not getting the get looked. They're getting free healthcare getting free school to get in free legal advice for a couple of million dollars for illegals. Everything's for illegal. Then then I can. And we'll we'll go to break. And I don't want to be too political this early in the morning, but you know, what I gotta be because I say some of these tweets throughout the night, you could see a safe some tweets. And then I wait till we go on the air, and I put him out. So we could talk about them because a lot of it. This is from Oliver McGee the PHD, Woohoo, we should probably chat with. And I don't mean just to give these former senior adviser to the White House, and he has tweeted out something one gal was at a town hall meeting, and she's an African American gal. And she says when when blacks committed crime, we get three strikes when a legal aliens commit a crime, they get amnesty and benefits. They're not paying taxes. Check out my Twitter feed. Please Jay Z Y at jersey Joe Piscopo, and this is a great treat again it comes from Dr McGee, but this poor gal is in a in the community. And she's plenty Saint you say, the illegals get everything, and he's Bobby just said, they send the money back to Mexico. It just goes like something's gotta be done. There is no comprehensive immigration reform. And if it starts with the well, let's start with the war. Don't make this a political ploy. Don't make this. A you. Just don't make up a little they don't want to give the president anything. Something's gotta be done about that. And then and in this, and I read this to somebody put this. Out and I get to political this early in the morning this from Charlie Kirk. There are three point six million black kids in poverty in America in Charlie asks, why do Gummer Kratz choose to put illegals first. Bingo. Thank you, Mr. Kirk. Bingo right there. Where's Al Sharpton? Dancing with a Cossio Cortes in the house of representatives. Did you see that video? Yeah. Let's go dancing were great roots, anti Trump, everything how about helping the three point six million black kids in poverty in America before you gotta worry about separation of family in the border. And none of the new shows even talk about it. Nobody talks about it. Just me. It's Bobby in Staten Island. You you get it. Oh, don't get me fired up. And you know, it's really a city when I go do the benefits and whether the great Don Mattingly, helping out at risk children in Evansville, Indiana, where it's me trying to help out the boys and girls clubs in New Jersey or walking the streets in Camden and thinking when are they going to step up? When are we gonna? To worry about Paterson, New Jersey and rebuilt Paterson, New Jersey with some manufacturing base in create jobs as as opposed to just taxing us, you know, as opposed to saying, well, we're going to get a legal fund illegal fund for illegals that come in in the state of New Jersey. Why don't we go to Patterson walk those streets and help those people out. I can't for the life of me, the whole tenor the whole mantra of the news media is backwards. They're not getting to the heart of the matter. They're not building up. They don't care about you. They don't care about me. They're going to go on vacation. They're going to talk to make the wall of a political situation. And thank God. You have the sense to see through a you do Frankie this this, please. And then trust me lots of fun this morning, but I just want to get through. It's been a big news weekend. And I don't like, oh, mayor de Blasio running for the White House. I you kidding me. Are you kidding me? What I e Elizabeth Warren. Would you people? Stop it not in a million years, and my I'll tell you my instincts. Good on this show early on we candidate Trump on three times. I had Bernie on the law all the candidates on this show right here. What we call Piscopo in the morning with Frankie and Allen, Debbie, and I told and I said it, and I felt it and I knew it Donald Trump's gonna win the presidency. I felt it and I knew it and the only other guy that knew that and Frankie knew it to Mike Gallagher foods on ten zero five here and am970theansweRcom told us many many times walk down the hallway. I looked at Mike was coming into November twenty sixteen election day was coming up, and he looked at me. Mike Gallagher dead. No words exchanged Justice. He's gonna win. That's what my Gallagher said to me. And I said, Mike you are. So I need just know in your the feeling I don't know what it is. It's a street sense. I always call. My Bloomfield avenue street sent you may have a Brooklyn, Bronx, queens street sense. I understand that. You just know there's no way that made the Blasi will you know, what not to take anything away. Yeah. Good things at the mayor's done like like the crime like the great fire department. The homeless is another thing the taxi the progressive socialist are talking about all you gotta make it better for the middle class. Well, let's stop raising taxes constantly 'cause you're killing us. You're killing us you Kim. They don't they don't even think about it. He goes all we don't we don't trust the people that we can't afford to live in New York anymore because the taxes are so high. How can these people be so out of it? How can these progressive democrat progressives? And that's what they call themselves, the communists, and the socialists and the marxists. How can they say? Well, we we there's no chance for people because you don't give us a chance because you raise the toll 'cause you raise the taxes I fired up this morning. I see all the insanity surrounding the news.
