little bit of traffic here the calling this three eleven some people calling at three eleven because we go back to that night it was last Wednesday night that was the last normal night okay it was the next day when everybody started staying in it was the next day when all the panic set in so president trump yesterday now every listen you we've been through this before we had it not like this but we've had these situations where everything is close you got to stay inside it's usually for two days or three days it usually the blizzard or hurricane sandy forget everything was closed you have to stay in there was less okay okay that was three days was for desk this could be three weeks four weeks months well we don't said July and August yeah I think he was just trying to overstate it I did and he he was talking about when the whole thing is over here is the president gave a briefing us see what happens but they think the August could be July could be longer than that now he's talking about would he use the phrase for the whole thing the washer of the went completely out of the system but as far as re opening being able to go out that could be I hate to say it could be three four weeks five weeks you could be in that long the mail it to somebody sent work yeah it's awful situation your mayor is considering a shelter in place rule where everybody has to stay in your bill out out to go to the drug store the grocery store that's about it that's what San Francisco is doing right now dimensional yeah but as many people are posting online your grandparents were asked to go fight a war you're being asked to sit on your couch and watch TV it's you can get through it you can do it it's a great time to get everything done that you've been putting off that book you wanted to read that book you wanted to write the closet you need to clean up and get everything done use it for self improvement you want to learn a language this is the time to do it you're shaking your head I don't see it like that well listen you're going to be stressed and depressed for the first few days till you would just we'll go over what you need to do to get through this year it let's just go over this occurs as four hundred and sixty three cases in New York four hundred sixty three but how it was to publish New York six and a half million seven million dollars giving we hold PO box seven million okay this four hundred sixty three cases so far and then you think well we're going to shelter in place in Florida people are sick hi it's a good precaution it will listen there's a million test kits out there will be four million by next week they'll do a lot of testing you may suddenly find out there's two hundred fifty thousand cases but that's good as people pointed out figure out the numbers start fixing that most people will not get that sick most people recover quite easily fifty percent of the cases are are pretty mild good news in South Korea they start doing that multiple testing with the drive through they found a lot fewer cases and they thought I think the only phone nine thousand cases so that could happen the most important critical thing that happened here in this whole thing was that China travel ban in January that may have saved a lot of people that's the problem Italy France Germany they didn't do it they have tons of Chinese visitors Italy does most of the business with China because that's where the fashion business makes everything a ran the boycotted by every other country so they do all their business with China that's how they got flooded with these cases you know when people say well the president wasn't taking it seriously he must've been taken very seriously in January when he issued a ban on travel from China that's a pretty serious move there so yeah that didn't come during the impeachment process yeah the middle of all that impeachment he was wearing that judge China travel bans pretty serious move really tough and it's the there was a lot of opposition to doing that because obviously a lot of our companies need to do business with China but he did that travel ban that may have saved this whole situation that's why little country like Italy has twenty seven thousand cases and we have what bringing a World much thirty three hundred thirty eight hundred so it may be that China travel ban that did it now here's the other thing and the present has been right about this last three years the supply chain has to move out of China you know the shortage of masks is because the masks are made in China that's got to stop that's got to stop all our prescription medicines made in China that's all got to be moved back here for safety security reasons the whole supply chain has to get out of China and come back here it will whenever that's possible do you ever see a U. S. construction workers wear those masks you know because they work with all kinds of weird chemicals and glue and all that kind of so they have the same mass the construction industry apparently is like twenty million masks and they've agreed to donate them to the hospital workers so that's good also three M. is now figure out how to make these mass the call so we can make five million a week or something like that so they'll be enough masks they've been sent out toilet paper come on we need toilet paper I was in the store you see plenty of toilet paper now here's the good news we just report Newt Gingrich on the Sean Hannity show yesterday reporting from Italy where he's been sheltered in place the stores are fully stocked there is no shortage of anything there in much worse shape than we are there's always that empty shelves everything sold out but then they're able to restock soon even in Italy right now there's no shortage don't worry about a shortage do you have it right now that'll get fixed good Amazon on the phone all day yesterday with the White House trying to gear up Amazon is hiring tons of people right now we need more drivers more warehouse people it wasn't gonna be a lot of people out of work and a lot of them will go to work for Amazon right now they are hiring right now for all you that fled I know somebody went to Miami because of be safe down there it's hit Miami even the mayor of Miami tested positive she's so now here's the other thing I know so many people that went to the Hamptons I'll be safe from the Hamptons you may have a problem out there to start new a break out in the Hamptons in Suffolk County of sixty three cases alone was to the other day two deaths already in Suffolk County in in New York City it's the biggest of them queens Manhattan each have over a little over a hundred Brooklyn sixty two Staten Island only nineteen but again you got much smaller population there everybody that's died seven people died in Europe everyone had pre existing serious medical problems MTA says subway service will be normal New York state got nine hundred and fifty cases a lot in Westchester but that one guy infected like fifty people the guy from new Rochelle yeah in Westchester you that I don't know about this you get these restaurants lows but they can all do take out and delivery would you feel safe with the take out and delivery I don't know it depends on which restaurant we're talking again and I don't know I go in so many see they're all wearing gloves and then I asked doctors miss it doesn't mean anything you know they're not professionals are not changing the gloves every second they don't even know how to take them off without infecting themselves and gloves gloves gets just as dirty as anything else if you're using them constantly the gloves can carry germs gyms are all close would we have we figured out why as mayor de Blasio is saying stay out of the gyms we have to close and why is he going to the gym because he needs to stay healthy we know that somebody asked him because I knew in advance that it was a very socially distance situation it was almost no one there I had heard that information prior well that's because you go to a gym in terms if you go forty miles to go this empty gym I suspected that we were all going to be about to close them down the street last chance to get some exercise I got no exercise whatsoever over the weekend I was in this building issues percentage of time no exercise possibly working all day I need exercise to be able to stay healthy and make decisions yeah Hey will you all you needed to that's your problem he needs exercise I'm not worried about you being assets to says so if this gym is so empty what is to come here I don't get that connection I really go to this gym and see what the hell they have in this gym what do they have it's so special you gotta drive forty five minutes to get to this gym there's gotta be a reason that he does and but there is good take a look at those trainers personal trainer we go see Jim I mean I bet if we went there to treadmill it's a bike it's some weights personal trainer is there two hours well I've said that all along I don't know anybody that works out for two hours maybe Tom Brady that's about it who the hell works out for two hours in the gym no one no one I know guys over there for two hours but it's forty minutes in the steam room it's a half hour watching TV the massage is a half hour but two hours in the gym something's wrong there so New Jersey has a hundred and seventy eight cases that's a lot of cases there Hey if you're out and you're like you're in Connecticut you think there's nobody you know with it here Connecticut is starting to have problems of member most of these people that work in Connecticut or live there are computers going back and forth so they've been in New York there's a Connecticut problem breaking out there up to about forty or fifty cases I hope not in Greenwich I'm afraid so when we go over this Weston that's right next to Westport the western racquet club announced that a member playing there well last week has tested positive for corona virus they've closed the facilities the Darien Country Club closed down almost a guest who was a symptomatic was there at the paddle something tournament final tournament yeah it'll turn that'll tennis at the Greenwich Country Club is closed temporarily what's a little club it's a small club national clubhouse somebody tested positive for the apparently had dinner there last week they have closed the club down so this stuff is going on the casino if you're these casinos in Connecticut the governor can't close them you can't order them to close their own sovereign territory they're not actually part of while Connecticut but I think Mohegan sun says they will close the casino floor and the restaurants not that well fox which I guess they're all going to close they they were remaining open apparently the governor's convincing him to close yet to remember if you live in a small suburban town you know you think love little D. which is a granite she forgot safe in Greenwich yeah but it's a small town everybody goes to the same places if you're in New York and you find out a bunch a hundred people have it what's the odds are you're in the same grocery store that you're in the same cabin yeah but if you're in Greenwich everybody goes to jail house everybody goes to Val Bella every we have a case in my little town yeah but this probably a restaurant or two everybody goes is a supermarket that everybody yeah so that's the problem with the small town when you go in there if somebody town has it they've probably been in the same place when you're in New York the odds of you'd be in the same place with the person that had it then again keep an eye on the suburbs it's it's going to be a problem San Francisco they're doing that shelter in place right now homeless people what happens with them I've got to figure out it will some towns have moved the homeless to they've set up shelters in airport terminals in the empty a military bases that kind of thing that the move off the streets that's not a safe situation for anybody that we must ask all swamp politicians dirty swamp politicians you Chuck Schumer types stop trying to get political points off this Mitt Romney

We hope it's going great for you this year is noteworthy for many things, and we'll be talking about the profound historical meaning of Memorial Day in a few minutes. But before we do that we want to acknowledge that Memorial Day weekend is also the traditional beginning of summer, which means the backyard barbecue season is in full swing. And on that, topic, we have some natural health notes to pass along. Well, first of all, if is on the menu, make sure as often as possible you choose. Grass-fed pasteurized meet you here say that a lot here on healing. Let's not news here, but we just want to remind you. As a matter of fact, this, this reminds us of great backyard barbecue in Connecticut a few years ago. Gosh, it was a beautiful day, and the barbecue is being done by Keith Armstrong, who is the executive chef at the Greenwich country club. Very upscale group that we were part of. I remember he was also very, very well versed in the nutritional content of the beef that was on that Barbie which I, which I thought was interesting because he was a chef. But he really knew the nutritional benefits and he's also really into fitness. So he enjoyed giving his friends, a piece of meat that had many of the benefits of a piece of fish. Right. One of the other guests at the barbecue. That day was Jeff Morrison who is in New York City physician whose practice was focused on nutrition, he agreed with Keith, and explain that grass-fed beef is similar to wild caught fish in that. It has the optimal omega three to six ratio, which is really important for preventing inflammation, grasp had beef also doesn't have many of the bad things that come with feed lot beef like antibiotics to promote unnaturally fast growth and a diet with a lot of corn. Council. It's not their first choice choice. Their first choice would be grass. But if they're stuck in a feed lot, that's what they eat. So at any rate, the grass-fed is, is valuable and important and better in many ways. But the other thing we want to tell you about is this whole barbecue thing has one small complication because some studies indicate that high temperatures involved in grilling barbecue produce compounds in meet that have been linked to cancer, and that's true both of charcoal or gas grilling. But it's you know, it's that blackened fish or blackened chicken or the blackened meat. I mean the stuff we all love right? Well, the good news is we found a healthy natural antidote to pass a law for minted foods like sauerkraut. Well, here's how author and nutritional therapy, practitioner, Margaret Floyd explained the virtues of sauerkraut. It's going to help you digest anything that you eat with it. It's great for barbecue because, you know, that Leon charcoal that tastes so good. But his totally carcinogenic eating it with this, actually.

"Year since the death of Barbara Bush, a new biography the matriarch by Susan page. If USA today reveals the heartache and happiness that shape the life of a woman who left an indelible Mark on modern American history. Judy Woodruff talked with patriot cently for news hour bookshelf, Susan page. The book is the matriarch Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty. Thank you for talking with us. What a personal biography. This is. I think the most personal I've ever read of a first lady, and you say that she was probably the most underestimated first lady of our modern era. What did you mean? In people thought they knew Barbara Bush. They thought she was approachable and warm and a grandmother with that cloud of white hair. And she was all those things, but she was more than that in ways that I think most Americans didn't realize she was a hugely influential political adviser to her husband and to her son. She spoke with them behind the scenes on issues like confronting the aids crisis dealing with the end of the Cold War. There are ways in which she said a standard for her family led. This remarkable American family that I thought was a story that ought to be told Susan you, right? She was raised in a family of privilege, but she had a difficult relationship with her mother that had an effect on her that her for the rest of her life. She had a tough relationship with her mother and her her mother would make fun of her weight and compare her to her older sister. Martha who is very pretty who is a model who was on the cover of the college issue of vogue and this left. I think a wound on Barbara Bush that she had for her whole life and that stayed with her what about her relationship with her husband? I mean, they were sixteen and seventeen years old when they met they marriage us three years later, and it was a marriage for the ages. They met at this high school dance to Greenwich country club, and I asked George H W Bush, do you remember what caught? Your I that night. And he said she was so beautiful. They had a long marriage seventy three years ups and downs. But they were fiercely devoted to one another at the end in the interviews. I did with her clearly her health was failing. She was not afraid of death. The only thing that worried her. I thought was idea that she would die before he did. And he'd be left alone a woman of strong personality and yet for much of his career. She followed him around if he had a different assignment at different appointment. She went along and took care of the children. She was a woman of her generation and she did follow when he decided to move to Texas. She said I've always wanted to live in Desa, which I suspect was not entirely true. But over time, they became equal partners over time. He came to trust her voice and her judgment. And even when he was facing the biggest decisions, for instance, the decision about what to do after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. She would be one of just five or six people in the room with him as he debated. What to do? And Susan you had remarkable access to her you interviewed her number of times you covered her years ago, but then closer to her death. You had access to much of her diaries and come across some remarkable personal information the future she had ongoing with former first lady Nancy Reagan. You know, all these years later, she was ninety two years old and failing health she became very animated when she talked about her views of Nancy Reagan. They just had a terrible relationship. They were very different women, very different priorities, and she kind of bitter tongue. I think for years with Nancy Reagan when Nancy Reagan was first lady, and she was second lady when the bushes moved out of the White House. If victim by Bill Clinton came back to Houston, two days later, Nancy Reagan called to try to explain away an interview, and what she had complained about how the bushes at treated Ronald Reagan after he left the White House and Barbara Bush had finally had enough and she said to Nancy Reagan. I I'm tired of hearing explaining I don't wanna talk to you. Again. Don't call me again. And. She said, oh, I hear another phone rang, and she hung up. You do write about the era that she lived in. She raised her children. She was a stay at home mother, and she had conflicted feelings about the women's movement about the feminist movement. You know, she felt sometimes just I think by the especially the early days of the women's movement raised questions about the value of the choices that that she had made in my she really walk the walk of a feminist. She was strong minded an independent. She wasn't afraid to speak up. But she refused to talk the talk. We had one interview where I said, I think you're a feminist. Don't you think you're finished? And she refused to say that I finally gave up and said you're being very slippery about this. And she said, yes, I am. And she was Republican married to George H W Bush and yet Susan you, right? She had views about abortion in a surprising way. You know, when I was going through her diaries, it opened her diary from nineteen eighty when her husband was making his first bid for the presidency. And in the diary, I found four pages. Tucked folded over yellowed, tucked inside. I pulled him out at the top was written in her hand thoughts about abortion. And this was in essence a letter to herself as she tried to sort out, her views on abortion, and she drew lessons for this from the life and death of her daughter, Robin. She said that when Robin was born I felt her soul into her body. When Robin died just three years old of Kimia. I felt her soul leave her body, and therefore abortion isn't murder. It should be left to the mother the father and the doctor and at the bottom of this page four pages, she wrote needs lots more thought. But it it was one way in which she did go against Republican Republican orthodoxy. She was a supporter of Republicans until the last president Republican president of her lifetime, Donald Trump. She was not a supporter of Donald Trump. Now for one thing Donald Trump, of course, defeated her son for the nomination twenty sixteen but she also had written years earlier that Donald Trump was a symbol of the greed of one thousand nine hundred she said that her in her diary at the time, and she worried I think about the direction of the party in about the quality of the American political debate in the last interview, I did with her in February of twenty eighteen I said, do you still think you're a Republican? And she said, no, I would probably say not talk to us finally Susan about her husband. He did outlive. Her by a number of months, but he never got over her death didn't know, and he wanted to go back to Kenny bunk point, I think when more summer, and it was able to do that. And an aide told me that he was sitting on the porch Kennebunkport that last summer the summer with after Barbara had gone and remembered when they agreed to get married walking up that driveway two teenagers just an understanding that they were going to be together forever. Remember, he said, I didn't get down on my knee. But we knew we knew that we were going to be married Susan page. It's a wonderful book the matriarch Barbara Bush the making of an American dynasty. Thank you. Thank.

"Chief Susan page. She's come on so many times to talk about what's in the news. We will do some of that including on the Muller report in limbo. But Susan also has a new book about former first lady Barbara Bush who passed away last year, she enjoyed H W Bush had the longest marriage of any first couple seventy three years the item for the book. That's breaking out is a bit of a news story is that Barbara Bush blamed Donald Trump for her heart attack. According to Susan the book is called the matriarch Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty. Now. The book jacket tells us that Susan page has interviewed the past nine presidents and covered the last ten presidential elections. What the book jacket leaves out is that she's been a guest on this show sixty two times before today. So hi, Susie. Congratulations on the book and welcome back and back and back WNYC sixty two times. And yet we've never met in person because it's always been remote from Washington washing. Your actual first time with me face to face incredible. Let's see the last nine president. So as Nixon the first that what that is. Correct. The first and congratulations on doing. The math is the first three presidents involved. I interviewed after they had left the White House in the next six I interviewed while they were in the White House. And you know, I think about that nine nine presents. We've only had forty four presidents which means that we are either a very young country. Are I am incredibly old person were very uncomfortable. Have they gotten progressively, more guarded or progressively more? Anything you can cite as a pattern as interviewees. I don't think they've gotten progressively more guarded. But they are each different and distinct with their own strengths and weaknesses their own views toward the press. I think all of them grow to hate the press, some of them continue to feel that the press is a valuable part of our democracy and some of them don't Barbara Bush. We'll get to her blaming Trump for heart attack and other politics and policy, but I say why not start with romance. How to George and Barbara meet they met at a Christmas dance. They were both high school students. They were home in the New York City, wealthy suburbs for the Christmas holidays from their prep schools. He saw her across a crowded room at the Greenwich country club. And when he was the just last year in October. I interview. Him. I had the privilege of the last interview he gave before he passed away. And I said do you remember what caught your eye at that dance? And he said she was so beautiful. You're right about George and Barbara's tragic loss of a child in one thousand nine hundred fifty three as having a profound effect on shaping their futures. And I think you're saying professionally nachos personally, obviously that would have a profound effect on anybody for the rest of their lives. But can you tell us what happened to their daughter? You know, this was Brian. I think the biggest price for me as a her biographer. Because of course, I knew that that Robin had died in what a tragic thing that would be in any family. And then the first draft of the book, I had as the first chapter the nine thousand nine hundred eighty election the election that put George Bush in the White House, and I had a chapter about Robin where it would fall chronologically. And when I looked at the first draft, it was just wrong because the defining event of Bush's life, George Bush's life may have been his election as president that it was not the case for Barbara Bush, the defining event of her life was the illness and death of her daughter. And it not only affected her personally as you say, but it affected her views on things, which she thought about abortion. She thought of it through the lens of our experience with Robin when she looked and wound up pro-choice pro-choice. And when when she thought about aids people with aids and remember the aids epidemic was exploding when George H W Bush took office did not gotten the attention. It deserved during the Reagan administration. She pushed for him to do things. She did things herself including going to grandma's house to pick up aids baby. And when she did that she was doing that through Robbins is make the connection for us. Because people may think, oh, if a death of a child affected her view on abortion, it might be in the other direction. So here's something extraordinary. She she gave me access to her diaries, which I frankly thought she'd never would in fact, she told me she would never do it. And then the last interview I had with her. She said you can look at my diaries in the diaries have not been processed by our. Because the only people who have been allowed to read them army and Jon Meacham who did the wonderful biography of George Hw Bush destiny and power. So I'm going to these boxes of papers that have are out of order. Some of the pages are stuck together. And it opened up her diary from nineteen eighty and talked in. There was four sheets of paper folded over yell- yelling sheets of paper folded over and I opened pull them out. And I opened it up and at the top of the first page. It says thoughts about abortion, and it's underlined. And this was the time when her husband was making his first bid for the presidency. She knew she was going to be asked what she thought about abortion. And in this letter to herself she tried to figure out what she thought in a way that I think would shock people who assume people in public life are always cynical because she was clearly trying to think through it as a moral issue, not as a political one. And she said when Robin was born I felt her soul into her. Body. And when Robin died, I felt her soul leave her body, and therefore abortion is not murder because you're sold is not into your body until you're born and that guided her now, she stopped talking about abortion rights when it became politically inconvenient for has been. But she never changed her own view on it Susan page with us Washington bureau chief for USA today. Her new book is the matriarch Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty. We know the bushes and the Trump's have no loss love between them. But you wrote that Barbara Bush Nancy Reagan did not like each other. At all. This was when Reagan was president and George was his vice did not like does not really convey, the nature of their disdain for one another. You know, they Nancy Reagan Nancy Reagan. I'm sure has her own perspective on this. And I wish we could hear it. But from Barbara Bush's perspective, Nancy Reagan was just a classic mean girl tour, she you know, they they. I got really know each other during the nineteen hundred campaign when their husbands were running against one another for the Republican nomination. So that's not a promising start. But from then on Nancy. Did things that were dismissive and rude and offensive to Barbara Bush and for eight years Barbara Bush bit her tongue the picture on the cover of the book says Barbara Bush in a red coat. Well, the fact is she liked read, but she bought a red coat to wear to the nineteen Eighty-one inauguration in Nancy Reagan sent word that she wasn't where red coat because Nancy Reagan liked to wear red. Exactly. And so Barbara Bush spent eight years not wearing red. And she started read where we're read a bit more when she was first lady and then later in life. So I was very glad to have this defiant red coat on the cover of the book when we look at the arc of Republican presidents since World War Two, George, H W Bush is the exception in certain ways the way I see it. Nixon was more conservative than Eisenhower. Reagan was more conservative than Nixon, George W Bush was arguably even more conservative than Reagan and Trump is more conservative. Than any of them in the purest right-wing base kind of ways, but George H W Bush following terms of Reagan was caught a little in the middle and had an identity problem. I'm curious how much you see it that way. And if it comes up in relation to Barbara in the book, George Bush, I think always struggled with the conservative wing of his party. And that goes back to the very first race. He ran Patricia Harris County Republican chair when he first started to get involved in politics where there was a John Birch candidate running and it created a big problem for him while he had troubles with his right right wing from from then on because he wasn't you know, wasn't that he wasn't conservative in his policies on foreign policy or the economy, but he was not a classic conservative in terms of this kind of cultural views, he was a New England Republican the likes of which we no longer seem to have. So this was a political tension throughout his life. And it. Contributed to his defeat for reelection in one thousand nine hundred to Barbara ever talk about that Barbara Bush defended George Bush in every forum in every way, she was she ordered him. You know, even even in her diaries, which were not written for public consumption. She defended him you remember that disastrous one thousand nine hundred to debate where George Bush looked at his watch. And it became just a metaphor problem. People took it as oh, he's just marking time here. He's not really engaged in this. His time is up. I think a lot of people thought well in after in her diary writing after great. She always said George Bush won no matter what. And she even she could not say George Bush won that debate. So in her diary, she writes that George has so much problems bragging about himself.

"Wants because I think it's something the country needs number one. I think George H W Bush was real life. George bailey. The hero of its wonderful light. Go mcgurn, Wall Street Journal, great observation Bush, forty one a class act, even in death with Trump and push those both families have clashed we know that. But not over his final respects, Trump was assured. There will be no McCain sabotage on him or innuendos at the memorial. He'll be there and behind closed doors both families meet today. I think that's fantastic. Let's bring in Susan page. One of the most respected people on Capitol Hill won't time. USA today columnists Washington bureau chief I should add an author of the matriarch Barbara Bush and the making of an American dynasty. Susan, welcome to the Brian Kilmeade show. Hey, brian. It's great to be. Yeah. Always love you commentary on TV. And of course, imprint first off for the Bush family, isn't it a relief? Not to talk about Democrats and Republicans we seem to be own agreement. This is this is a special family, and this was a special, man. It's really been remarkable since the president passed away on Friday night that there's been very little criticism of affection remembrance of them. Even though of course, he he lost his bid for reelection. He was a source of controversy sometimes during his what? But I think there's a recognition that he both had substance to the chievements and also that he conveyed a kind of decency that ought to be respected. Susan also, I know some of your columns. It's amazing. The president knew the end was near he chose not to go into the hospital. I mean, we've gotten word I'm sure you've done. The same alerts you for a couple of years. How did that today could be the day that we lose the forty first president? But this time he knew what he was saying. Like, basically, he was almost looking forward to it. I'm going to heaven and you write in your column yesterday. He's hoping to see Robin. It's really remarkable. You know, this is his daughter who died of leukemia when she was three years old at the time. He was trying to build an oil business in Texas. Neither George Bush Barbara Bush had ever heard of leukemia. When the doctor told him their little girl had that they didn't know what it was. There was almost no treatment for it than just the beginning of some fledging treatment, six Ruutel months of treatments at a New York hospital at Sloan Kettering, and then she passed away. And you know, it was something that Mark them for the rest of their lives both of them and for George Bush, one of his good friends in Midland, Texas, wearing interviewed for my book told me that she thought it was one of the things that made him think I wanna do something big with my life. I don't just want to have an oil business. I wanna do something larger it also affected him. I think in terms of having empathy for people for people who get knocked around in life, sometimes not because of anything they deserved. Yeah. I mean, I guess you. Wow. I can't believe this nineteen fifty three. She was diagnosed with leukemia. So what a long life? I mean live to ninety four, but he also wants to see her and he had a question. What would she look like, it's amazing? He said he hopes she looks like she looked when he saw her when she was alive when she was healthy when she was three years old kind of pudgy had monkey blonde. Curls. That's what he said. He would hope to see in heaven, which is just a lovely image. Isn't it a comforting image to think about the? You know, he he he said he wasn't afraid of death. It wasn't that he wanted to die. And even when his when Barbara Bush passed away in April, George Bush was not quite ready to let go he wanted to last summer in Kennebunkport, but he wasn't afraid of death and that comes through in this emotional scene during his final hours of life. Jim baker. The former secretary of state has talked about this about how George Bush's lifelong friend looked up and said where are we going bake? And Baker said we're going to heaven. Yeah. And he looks broken up by you know, it's amazing to this theory in this country. If you lived a long time these these funerals attributes not morning, but I don't think that's the case is it because even though ninety four it doesn't mean you're not gonna miss that person. It doesn't mean that personal relationship could ever be replicated. You know, that's that's very true. And of course, he's adored by his by five living children seventeen grandchildren by eight grand, great grandchildren on the other hand. I think we all recognize that he had the fullest of live from the time. He enlisted in the navy at on his eighteenth birthday during World War Two to the time of his before his death when he was still meeting with people talking to people enjoying going out to dinner, even in this last several months, you also wrote recently actually Sunday that your interaction with him. Once he got your name wrong. It was nineteen ninety eight. I was covering the White House for Newsday. He called on me at a news conference. And he called me. An and I think he had confused me with an Debra the Washington Post reporter, you know, we were just about the only two print reporters who were female who were covering the White House. And and so people sometimes got us confused. She called me. And what was funny was he kept repeating that name in his answer. So he said, well, and I think this, and I think that man, I think we can agree that, blah, blah, blah. And every time he said and people would start to giggle in the in the in the press corps until they were kind of open laughter by the last time. He did. And when he was walking out of the room, he turned to Marlin fitzwater and said, why are they laughing? And he Marlins said, well, you know, her name is Susan. So he sent me this really sweet handwritten note the next day that said Susan, I know you're not an and Margaret lives on the west coast. That's nice, but he was always big into letters. Right. He was quite the letter writer, and you know, he was not always. The most articulate politician when he was speaking. But he was quite articulate when he was writing talking to Susan page USA today. So Barbara Bush, I interviewed George Bush for this book. I did call the games do cats. I wanted to find out what people didn't sports that shaped him in life. But if they've won pro I didn't want them because everyone knows you will pro you're getting paid. But I want to know sometimes in sports most likely you fail. So how that shaped who you were. And I remember he told me, you know, my dad, I go you dad was a great first baseman at Yale. He goes. Yeah. But it was really my mom who kept the book. My mom was the one at all the little league games. Did that come out in your book, the matriarch? Well, yes, it did. Because George Bush was a father who was a door by his children. But he wasn't a father who's around all the time. I he was building his oil business, then he went into politics. He was gone a lot and the parent who was home was Barbara Bush, and she did everything they didn't call her this at the time. But when a little when they were adults they began to refer to the enforcer. And that was definitely what she was. Yeah. It's tough. I mean, six kids you left alone in the beginning, those early houses were small right in well, even the house really they lived in a very small house until they until they moved to Houston. So there was a point where they had five kids in a little house in Midland Texas with one bathroom. So what did you discover in researching her that we on the outside, and even you as a reporter didn't know, you know, there was there was a lot that that I didn't know. But in thinking about what she thought of George Bush. She loved him from just about the first night they met at a dance eight the Greenwich country club for high school students who were home for Christmas. George Bush saw her across the room and went up to a friend and said who is that girl, and mutual friend said it's Barbara Pierce. Do you want me to introduce you? And he said, well, that's what I have in mind. And when I interviewed George Bush last November November twenty seventeen in what turned out to be the last interview he did in his life. I said do you remember that dance? And he said, yes. And I said, well what caught your eye and he said she was so beautiful. Well, here is the President Bush reading a letter to Barbara Kusak. I love your precious.

"I'm Ed Torrence, news ninety six point five w. Now, the Brian Kilmeade show, a news ninety six point five WDBO. Thanks so much publicity. Everybody's Brian Kilmeade. It's going to be a big our little break from politics. Talk to Brian Billick, the former coach of the ravens and dolphins. Coordinator with the mighty Minnesota Vikings about some of these recent arrests in football, some of this technology that has football players playing in a more safety environment. And a really great year the NFL's having competitively really exciting to have some controversy discuss especially the signing of a domestic abuser last step of the Washington Redskins. And then you have one of the stars of the can't see chiefs. We caught on tape by TMZ beaten up a woman and evidently, it's his third offence. One was being up a guy the other. Violence against a woman, and why he was even a team this long is beyond me. And why the NFL didn't do their own investigation is stunning to me. Meanwhile, we have a lot going on including memorial rising, remembering the death of the life of President Bush, the forty first present United States. We'll talk to Susan page in just a moment. So let's get started. Now with the stories you need to know Brian's bay three three the special counsel was supposed to find crimes relating to Russia. As far as we know. He hasn't found very many of those what he's done is to help create crimes that is he's given people an opportunity like that is Alan Dershowitz for the first time. There is evidence that the Mola probe is winding down today. General Michael Flynn gets his sentencing and the president wants Michael Cohen in the slammer. I'll bring the waves. The. We ought to be able to say, look, we've got to secure the border wall as crucial part of that gets fundamental common sense. We've got to secure in the fact that you've got Democrats refusing to allocate the resources necessary to do that. I don't think the American people. Liz Cheney and upcoming star on Capitol Hill. The caravan is still a problem wall. Funding is still an issue will we get a two week pause. It looks like so my hope is that we will get close to the five billion the prison wants because I think it's something the country needs number one. I think George H W Bush was real life. George bailey. The hero of it's a wonderful life. Go mcgurn. The Wall Street Journal, great observation Bush, forty one class act even in death with Trump and push those both families have clashed. We know that. But not over his final respects. Trump was sure there will be no McCain Sal attacks on him or innuendos at the memorial. He'll be there and behind closed doors both families meet today.
