We found him in the Boston parking garage on an I V He's still building beat me, but I got up to hell. The point is, Can you get up the hill? Donald Trump can get up the hill. This is from a z central dot com filed last night at 1:33 A.m.. His merit. Cuppa County released the results from 140,000 more bounce on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. President Donald Trump received almost the exact sherry would need to charge to charge back to win Arizona's electoral votes and potentially re election. Trump won the batches of ballots from Maricopa County Wednesday and early Thursday by the roughly 57 40% margin over former VP Joe Biden. Those votes Mike early bounce into the county on Monday and Tuesday narrowed. Biden leads to Trump took 68,000 votes down from 90,000. All vents, a Republican pollster with consulting firm High Ground, said Trump needs to win 57.6 of the 470,000 votes. The Arizona Republic estimates it remained to be counted. It's almost exactly what he got in the first batch meant said he could do it. Meanwhile, Georgia has done with Atlanta Fulton County now have a recount in Georgia. Okay, We're going to have that. I feel good about Pennsylvania not out of the woods, but I feel good about it. That would mean President Trump wins North Carolina and feel good about So, please, When you wake up this morning, people started telling it, Joe, But Joe Biden President elect No, He's not, by the way the president elect to get slapped with an independent counsel, so really special counsels really ought to think twice about that. Been pointed out to me by a friend of Department of Justice. You can appoint a special counsel for a I thought it was in the private sector. The DOJ has no conflict of interest. The moment becomes president elect. I think Eiji Bar appoints a special counsel. So Hee A double edged sword for Joe Biden there. In any event, there's going to be a fight everywhere. Steve Kornacki, you know, one of the best in the business was on with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow last night. And he had this to say, cut number five favorable group. And so we just got those new numbers off the new votes that were just reported out. Donald Trump won 43,966 of them. Joe Biden won 30,322 of them. Donald Trump is getting around 59% of these votes. That's mad. Yes. So that is Bertha three buckets here. The first bucket was the early Biden won it by 10. The second bucket was the same day Trump wanted by 26 the third bucket. You're looking at the start of that now there's this is not a love it, but we just got here again about 75,000 boats. Remember, they said, there's about 400,000 and change to come out of Maricopa County. So we got 75,000. For 100,000 Plus at a Maricopa County. This pace of 59% for Trump, it might change is more ballots are added into here. So let's see. But this at least establishes, I think upfront the possibility here that this third bucket of votes is a trump favorable bucket of votes, and you can see it's already brought him to five points behind in Maricopa County. It was 10 after the first bucket was reported. It was about six after the same day was cast. Now the first installment of the final batch has made it five and we can see what has this done to the state wide margin here in Arizona. What's scan out there now it's down to 2.8% and you see the state wide margin there, which was over 90,000 has fallen under 80,000. So there's that there will be more to come here. 475,000 change. Let's see if Trump continues to win them. At that rate. We knew he has to win. He has to be getting over 60. I think this is a little rough here, but I think he's got to be over 60. With this final batch of votes when all is said and done if he's gonna overtake Biden so To be continued. We do expect by the way tonight. It maybe in a couple hours we're being told the indications are we do expect a second batch of what? I just showed you so and there was a second batch and it got closer and it looks good for Trump. That's Steve Kornacki talking to Rachel Maddow, who kind of gasped because look Democrats look Republicans. Arizona could flip. I don't know if it's a 50 50 shot orbit. 60 40 shot for the president, but it could flip If it flips and Georgia and Pennsylvania hold. Donald Trump won. So just tell yourself, it ain't over. I just have to be patient. It's a long movie. It's a long drama, and I'm going to replay what I said on NBC last night. I say when I was on NBC has had 364 votes him in 364,000. They understood it.

They're in Boston fleet center you fly in a Logan airport you'd go to the tunnel. And they was when they had the big dig on on everything was under construction. So you find a Logan yet? You rent a car and go through the tunnel. Go the fleet center, I never knew anything about Boston because I went straight back to the hotel and had some beers. And then we got out of dodge. Well, when I did grownups too. I got a chance to spend some time in that city and to see how beautiful of a place that is. And of course, how much history is in Boston a bunch. So to see the vibe of that city to mess around and go to a couple of places and get to see the people. Of course, you know, how good sports are coming out of the Boston area with everyday. They've got going on over there. It's a great place for sports. It is always a great place to wrestle Boston loves wrestling hill. I wanted my first title wrestlemainia fourteen world heavyweight championship from Shawn Michaels air with Mike Tyson as referee, but never knew it as a city after getting a chance to spend time Maher that was another city that I really grew to like. And of course, Chicago was always high on my list. It was it was a town that I like to go around, and it seemed like ours did a lot of media over there for some reason, and as my favorite Bill into work at the Chicago Rosemount horizon, and I always love the architecture in the layout of that city. So those are three but to to your point to your question. Those are the ones that I really grew to enjoy. But the thing is you don't get a chance to see much of the city because you're in and you're out. Oh, hang off. And we got a little we've got another broken skull challenge question here from Phil. Hey, steve. I'd love it. If you talk a little bit more about the bronchoscope challenge in particular, what's going on with these folks who cannot. On the rope at the end between that and commando crawl. They don't seem to want to use it good or healthy technique. Is it exhaustion or technique?

And with that commando crawl placed where it is in the skull BUSTER, and then what the seventeen foot vertical climb. The rope burn at the very end after you've gone up through heartbreak hill, and you're still a little bit wet from the deep freeze. You know, there was clearly a lack of technique from Jason. And Ashley now they had a ton of heart and it had a ton of want to an tried their asses off.

But when you've had nine bad ass obstacles thrown at you and your totally winded. It's it's a whole different ballgame and a whole different animal. So we'll see if anybody does indeed get up that rope. But I think that Jay. Jason and Ashley did not have a ton of rock climbing experience. And at least that's what it looked like to me, and they tried, but they cannot be debts. Go buster. We'll see if anybody could. Oh, man. Here's a question. I'm blows.
