"The extent to which Trump has gotten involved in Georgia's primaries and what's on the line here So Susanna by my count former president Trump has got involved in ten races and they break down into three quick groups First candidates challenging incumbents most notably David perdue challenging governor Brian Kemp and congressman Jody hice challenging Secretary of State Brad raffensperger Then you got the endorsement and races with no incumbent notably Herschel Walker in the U.S. Senate Berg Jones for lieutenant governor and Vernon Jones in the tenth congressional district Then there's also been endorsements of incumbent members of Congress Marjorie Taylor Greene and Andrew Clyde What has become clear to me talking to voters is there is not a clear pro Trump wing and a GOP establishment wing You know when you talk to voters there are some that are a 100% in the Trump camp a 100% the election was stolen in 2020 and won't vote for camp now or in the fall but there are a lot of Trump supporters who are voting for governor Kemp despite what the former president say there are plenty of Republican primary voters casting a ballot of mix of pro Trump and establishment candidates for a range of reasons So next Wednesday the day after the election is going to be interesting You know if there's no election or voting issues to hear the spin from all sides of Tuesday's results And that brings us to things to watch number two and that's the salience of false beliefs about the 2020 election as a motivating force for voters Sam what do you think Well add a Purdue event at least this is maybe the motivating force You know lots of voters I talk to at Purdue event says that's what hooked them on him in the first place At a recent Purdue event at a golf course in ackworth I met a guy named Cody oakes And he's like many voters been upset with Kemp's handling of the 2020 election But the thing that I found interesting is he also admits inside he's still has some doubts about whether those claims are valid or not You know he said he's just heard so much about election fraud That it's hard for him to ignore what they're saying I'm not totally sold on it You know because I haven't seen the.

"Yeah, I had to bring it up. That's right. So he and if you remember both of those rallies, he had a very different kind of speech than the rest of the candidate. Sure did. It was a positive speech. It was more of that kind of the uplifting kind of speech. And I think he's done a pretty good job. And he will win big also. And what's an interesting story, too, is that Herschel Walker has been friends with Brian Kemp since he was 18 years old. Brian Kemp's best friend is Daniel Dooley. The dualist of course spent duly the coaches, university of Georgia, so Brian has known Herschel. But what I'm hoping is going to happen. And I know a lot of people think that president Trump will never come to terms with Brian Kemp. But if anybody can broker a detente between former president Trump and Brian Kemp, it's her walker. Well, I mean, and there you've got the football component there. When Herschel played for Trump's team back in the USFL days, and so maybe there is something there. And that has been a question in my mind, would Trump endorse endorse camp if, in fact, and it certainly looks like he's going to win on Tuesday. I just want him not to not, if campus the nominee, then if he just doesn't engage, you know, kind of like what he did with youngkin, where he said, hey, I support him, but he didn't really come in the states. And I got to tell you, it's going to be an interesting thing to watch because, you know, I think president Trump did a great job and more and more, you see that his policies were good, but he does seem to have a little issue with situational loyalty at time. And you're seeing that with kind of him throwing David perdue under the bus. And that's a fair point. Again, and Herschel, I mean, if we're talking about name recognition, the guy just wins, hands down, and I think he'll be the next senator from Georgia. My concern, though, as he did not take advantage of those debates. During the GOP primary, he refused to debate, and I think that may come back and hurt him if in fact there are debates in the general election. Well, he's starting now to sit down for difficult interviews and I've interviewed him several times, but of course I'm a more friendly interview because I'm a Republican and a bulldog fan. I wasn't trying to nail him to the wall, right? So it was he is doing some tougher interviews, but you're right. He is practicing. He's got to debate Rafael Warnock is a good debater, but you know, Rafael Warnock's got his own problems too. And he has never been challenged. The university just dropped a million plus dollar buy beginning the attack on Rafael Warnock. So it's coming. And Martha, we probably, and I should have mentioned this ahead of time. You and I, there's some tension here in our friendship and relationship because you are a Georgia bulldog fan. I am a Tennessee volunteer fan and of course you guys sent duly son to sabotage our football program back in the day. I just have to my husband's best friend as a Tennessee ball too. So there you go. It's a strain, but I tried. I'm just kidding. Martha's. Can I tell you what Todd? That color just doesn't look good on anybody. I'm sorry. Now Martha Martha. You see, I'm going to be nice. It's Friday. It's Martha Zoller of the patriot mobile newsmaker line. You know Martha, this are people in Georgia. Do they understand that this really is a bellwether state? I mean, I think a lot of it's a nationalized race, even though it's in Georgia. No, they really do understand. And I think it's going to be like that. At least if cycle an 2024 because but I will tell you something. Stacey Abrams is polling about three points less than what she ended up with at the end of the last election, which she did not concede. And she is not drawing big crowds. I mean, there's a mural of her in downtown Atlanta with her head above John Lewis and Martin Luther King Jr.. She has been lifted up so high and Brian Kemp love him or hate him. He's been doing the work. And I believe women with children in school are going to be what decides this election. And they're going to vote Republican this time. And are you hearing that Republicans are energized they're going to get out and vote, we're not going to have a repeat of what happened in the Senate races? Yes, I think they are. I think they are united in wanting to beat Stacey Abrams. But there will be a little bit amending that will have to be done. But former senator produced he would support Brian Kemp at full throatedly and Brian Kemp said he would support David perdue if he won. So I think they'll work together to try to keep this going. Good. Well, I'm glad to hear that. All right, and you're coming up to New York for the big talkers convention. I am. I'm looking forward to is one of my favorite weekends. It's going to be a lot of fun. I mean, we're bringing Tim van horn, who is the morning show host at KW a.m. in Memphis, so he hasn't been to New York. This is going to be a great experience. So we'll have to make sure everybody gets together. I will look forward to it. All right, Martha Zoller, everybody, host of the Martha Zoller show, we've got links to Martha's social media platforms over on our live show blog. Martha, have a great weekend. Thanks, Todd, you too. All right, great lady right there. And let me tell you something, Martha knows politics, probably better than anybody in the state of Georgia. To that point on Monday's show, Matt talley is going to join us one of the best pollsters in America, and he's going to help us break down what we can expect next week in these big primary battles all over America.

"Progresses. Welcome to the Todd stern's radio program hour three. We've been talking a lot about this Georgia primary, not just for the Senate race or the gubernatorial race. There's a lot going on and I thought who better to address that issue than our friend Martha Zoller. She is hosted the Martha Zoller show on our great affiliate there in Georgia. And Martha will be at this year's talkers convention, which starnes media group is proud to be a sponsor of a Martha. Hope you're doing good. I'm doing great, but I would hate to lose corrine because she's given me such great material all week long. Yes. Well, Kirby is not that not that better, but at least he knows how to spar with the press corps. So that could be entertaining. Martha Zoller, your name has been mentioned by a number of our callers who listen to your show and a lot of people are just wondering what the heck is going on in Georgia. Brian Kemp, what triple digit? We're at 30 plus points ahead of Purdue. Are those numbers correct? I don't think it's 30 points, but I think what you had here is a governor that was very well known. I mean, Todd, if you go into a farm bureau office in any county in Georgia, you will find multiple iterations of business cards of Brian Kemp from when he was a business guy working in the farm business when he was Secretary of State when he was a state senator. He has been traveling to state for a long time. You know, you can call him a career politician if you want, but he's an old school career politician where he actually did the work, you know? And he went and he met people and he talked to people. So he was very well known. And I think that when we get to this primary that what you're going to see is a mixed bag, as far as the Trump endorsed candidate, if the candidate and the race like Brian Kemp is really well known and David perdue was too, but not as well known as Brian Kemp, those candidates are people are going to vote their conscience on that. In the races where people are not as well known, the Trump endorsement is going to have a huge impact. And how it goes. But look, I think it's going to be a really interesting race. I don't know if it's 30 points, but he's clearly above 50% and way above 50%. You know, and people love questioning my Trump credentials as if that's as if they're in doubt. I mean, someone said a couple of days ago. Because again, I've been supporting anyone other than Doctor Oz, for example, in Pennsylvania, because when I look at Doctor Oz, I don't see a Republican. I think maybe a conservative Democrat, I guess, but I don't see a Republican there. So I tell them, well, you know, Trump has me speaking at his rallies, so I guess I'm doing something okay. And I was, I remember the rally in commerce, Georgia. And Martha, I was sitting, I was sitting right next to Herschel Walker and all those guys, I remember when Herschel came out the crowd roared its approval, David perdue comes out. Polite applause, but that was about it. And I remember thinking then, wow, that's not good. And Herschel is a unique candidate, right? Because he really, with all due respect to the former president, he didn't need Trump's endorsement. You know, people have been trying to get Herschel Walker to run for something in Georgia for years because of his name ID and the fact he's Georgia football. And then what are the perfect storm that you got Herschel? You've got the Trump endorsement and the George bulldogs won the national championship. I mean you had to bring that up..

"All right, well, how do you, how do you base your, what are you base your argument on? I'm curious, huh? Where's your evidence? And I have been talking to anybody that would vote for Brian Kim. And I might own the road every day, talking to people, and we all talk about the same thing. And I haven't met anybody that would vote for Brian Kim. Not probably talk to a couple of hundred people in the last three or four weeks. All right, so now Tom, let me ask you, we had a there was a big Trump rally, a couple of months back in commerce, Georgia. I was there. How big was that? How big was that crowd, Tom? It was bigger than 5000 people I guarantee you there. Yeah, they were expecting about they were expecting about 40 or 50,000 people, Tom, weren't they? They were in that say that there was a lot of people that came and walked around and bought souvenirs and laughed during the day. All right. All I know is that the road when I lay out or line the cars in and out of that place, and when they had braces there, they only had about 15 or 20,000 people there. Tom, what happened when David perdue got up to speak? What happened in that crowd? I was there. I was sitting right behind David perdue. Tell me what happened. Well, there was some wrong one. I'm not going to deny that. Were people cheering? No, no, no, Tom, hold on a second now, Tom. Hold on Tom. Tom, we can speak over each other, but I want to hear what you have to say. But when you compare the roar of the crowd when Herschel Walker walked out and when David perdue walked out, there's a problem. There's a difference between harsher walker and David perdue. They're both running for office. For everybody else's poll Tom. Everybody. All right. I hear what you're saying. And Tom, we gotta run. We gotta run to take a break here, Tom. I get what you're saying, but Tom and it may be Tom may be right. He's gone out there and he's talked to all these people and he doesn't know a single person in Georgia who's voting for Brian Kemp. That's what Tom just said. But I can tell you this my eyebrows were raised by curiosity was piqued when yours truly was at the Trump rally. President Trump personally invited me to speak at the Georgia rally. And I'm looking out and you know what I saw, I saw a lot of empty pavement. A lot of it. Now that's not an attack on anybody, that's an issue of is there enthusiasm boots on the ground for David perdue. I didn't see it. And he knows exactly how that crowd reacted when Purdue came out, and it wasn't good. It wasn't good. 8 four four 747 88 68, we love you, Tom, but I don't know..

"Okay we're Friends so you know that you're here for your giant Harvard legal brain but also I want to have dinner with you and Herschel Walker You know that I was going to ask you to get an invite to that dinner Yeah that has been a weird part of my life I put like this If Herschel Walker subpoenaed me I probably wouldn't show up I don't think that he has any legal I would say that his dinner invitation is illegitimate Stephanie honestly like joking aside do you realize this man is using me and fundraising letters Yes No this is what I'm laughing about First of all you go on the view and the right wing explodes And then wait a week and Herschel Walker by name You said LOL Herschel Walker is so called graciously invited me to dinner but it appears he thinks I'm supposed to pay for it I've been made where he's using me in fundraising materials What do tell about the fundraising letter Okay so Herschel Walker I wrote a piece in the nation kind of distinguishing between Herschel Walker who is a token who is being used by white people at a very cynical way to try to shave some black votes off of Rafael Warnock and Georgia He's got no skill no senatorial skills no speaking skills no legislative skills no reading skills He's got no skills for this job right He's being used by these Republicans in a kind of cynical racial way And I made a distinction between him and like black Republicans who you know I don't agree with Who can spend a whole show debating But who at least kind of like come by their republicanism honestly right Come by their wrong views about what should happen in this country Through their own means Or you know black conservatives like Eric Adams the current mayor of New York City He's a black conservative he runs as a Democrat He's a black conservative and so like there's a difference between those two and walker was just like this man is trying to racially I don't even know what again it's hard to parsley what he says because he can't smell my name right I mean even in the fundraising email And he's like using quotes that I've said on TV and I'll give him this accurately Right That's what I said about man So yeah so now he's trying to fundraise off of me but the serious point here is that why won't I go down to Georgia and just debate this man or whatever Because he's trying to run against me a black guy from New York City as opposed to Rafael Warnock and the other kind of candidates for Senate seat in Georgia who can speak to the issues of people in Georgia I do not know a whole lot beyond like the Atlanta Braves and the archer TV show I don't know a whole lot about Georgia all right You know I always feel like that exposes their inherent racism sexism you name it Like Sarah Palin right Because we had Hillary they're like oh we've got a woman It's just like here's our black you know it's like we always say like you know we don't mean just any black person or any woman right I always say that Identity politics way more than the Democrats because Republicans honestly think that to do identity politics all you need is to be a part of that identity Right And then you're good And then you have all the all the bona fides Prove that I don't know Because you're not racist Right Without having any policy without having any kind of conception for the advancement of that label of that identity group or whatever So Republicans do identity politics in the basis most crass way whereas when Democrats do it in the politics what we're saying is like look a person from this identity has a unique or different viewpoint on the things that affect that identity and thus when they are legislating when they are governing they will have policies and ideas and whatever that aren't often brought to the table and the diverse group of people making decisions is a better group of people making decisions Republicans don't get that part It's just like oh here's a person She's also has breasts So now we're good Listen I don't push them there that fra angella frequently goes into the biscuit and pancake making abilities certain black conservatives I have nothing to do with it Chris I know yeah So the other reason I love having you on is you are literally more the veruca salt of justice than I am You make me look moderate But I mean I heard your I felt your pain yesterday on TV when you're talking about these 5 subpoenas Because we are all sitting here going and then what Then what are you going to do Because you know they're going to refuse So the committee investigating January 6th took the unprecedented step of issuing subpoenas to 5 Republicans It is of course Jim Jordan Scott Perry mo Brooks Andy Biggs and Kevin McCarthy And so here we go They're going to say no and then what right Right They've waited so long to get to this point I mean you know part of the thing that just insert this incensed me is that I don't know for how long they've been offering these people to come voluntarily They came out with the subpoenas that they had refused to voluntarily cooperate So how many weeks weeks that we waste waiting for them to vault waiting for Jim I can't see anything Jordan to voluntarily cooperate How many weeks were wasted on that process Now we're going to wait additional weeks waiting for them to defy the subpoenas before what Because we know what the play is They've been doing this flight They've been practicing this play with their other people with Bannon with Meadows with the Flynn They've been practicing what they're going to do now they're going to do it And what is the committee prepared to do next Well you can hear buddy tops and talk he's like well we haven't put anything in front of the committee Why not How have you not already talked about what happens next People are saying the Democrats are playing 7 dimensional chess I would settle at this point for checkers Because you know what you're going to make a move you know what their move is going to be What's your next move yo Right Like just think two steps ahead of the game Well they refused And I think part of it is that they honestly don't have any other options but I think the bigger part of it is that they don't want to take the options that are available to them Well you said yes on TV You said I'd be answering the spin off from jail I'd be saying why I'm not going to fight the Japan Sabina from jet As would the rest of us And so whether it's inherent contempt and they use this stupid jail in the basement or whatever I don't know because as you say well you tweeted where were you Me trying to work out how long they'll stall before January 6th committee refers them to Garland for contempt and how.

Breaking Down Georgia's Upcoming Elections and Trump's Influence

"And then you have Georgia. And this is where I think the ultimate Trump endorsement power will be at tested at its most roots. I think, look, Herschel Walker and our Senate writes down here. Again, a very open primary, but at the end of it, Herschel Walker is had a commanding lead ever since he got in the race is his popularity. He's known. Nobody really in the state of Georgia who's watched football or anything else in the last 30 years does not remember Herschel Walker as a running back from the university of Georgia who led him to a national damage deal. And husband trophy. This is just not something that is unknown in Georgia and the Georgia football team is very powerful when you look at touching voters or hearing that you played for Georgia football. And again, with the problem coming up with this election in Georgia is the Trump endorsement is very much at play and very much a factor, but there's also the anti endorsement if you would that Donald Trump has made and going after Brian Kemp on multiple occasions. Brad raffensperger Secretary of State, attorney general Chris Carr. He said in endorsed Mark Jones in the lieutenant governor's race and at the same time put out a post saying that he would never endorse Butch Miller, who was the other one in the Senate race. So again, he's played in a lot of races, two in particular that I'm focused on and just to see from a take position is the insurance commissioner's race and the attorney general's rice here. Both Patrick witt and John Gordon, who's running for attorney general Patrick witt against John King for insurance, are facing incumbents in the primary. Right now, internal polling shows that these candidates are struggling with name ID, struggling to get caught up. The Trump endorsement helps them. The Trump endorsement sort of bills over that gap of lack of credibility with voters who don't know who they are with have been running for the tenth district. Congressional seat in this process, John Gordon had been on the sidelines completely, both of them announced their candidacies and get in the race during qualifying time. So this has been a very shortened race for them.

Donald Trump Is Still a Major Force in the GOP Primaries

"Now, one of the key elements in most all of the races we're going to talk about today is the endorsement or lack of endorsement from Donald Trump. These are going to play heavily in these cycles as we go through and this is something we need to be aware of. And how they're playing in these different states. To make it very clear, Donald Trump is a very large force in the Republican primaries. He is still the most sought after endorsement. He still moves voters. He has a large contingent, but what we're also seeing is that in some of the races it is the candidate is playing as much as the endorsement. So let me put it in the perspective of this. If you have a race in which Donald Trump endorses a candidate that is already well liked, I'll use an example here, Herschel Walker in Georgia. It makes almost unbeatable unbeatable team in which you have the president jump endorsement. You have the popularity of Herschel Walker to start with already with name ID. He's an icon in the state from his football playing career. Still getting used to the political aspect, but if you combine those two together in a Republican primary, it's almost unbeatable. However, we are seeing in some of the different areas that the endorsement helps, but is not the determinant. So if the Canada is not lived or the candidate is not out doing what they need to be doing to make sure that these elections that they're winning their election they're raising the money, they're doing the things that candidates do, then it shows that it may not be the only determinant of election that the endorsement will help, but it's not the only thing that they need to

Can Republicans Take the Senate in November?

"Well, senator Rick Scott, you know, let's move on to a happier subject. What we're going to be able to do about this because I think we're taking back the Senate in November. Can you give the Hugh Hewitt radio program audience a preview of how you think next November is going to go? Here is where we are. We should be able to defend all we have. We have 21 Republicans up. We should be able to defend all those. Now, someone will be harder. We've added to Pennsylvania. We've got to defend North Carolina. We've got to defend probably the hardest of an incumbent is Ron Johnson and Wisconsin. But if you look at the quality of our candidates in the primaries, we got a lot of primaries that will come up in the next 30 days. We got great people in our primaries. We've done great incumbents running. So we just have to bust our butt every day. It's how you win races. I'm in a 50 50 state. You work every day and gosh, you have success. And where we have our pickup opportunities is one in Georgia. Is the Doug Jones of this cycle. A 100% what Biden Schumer and Bernie Sanders. And so we've got two we've got three good people in the primary. One of them is going to win right now, Herschel Walker's way ahead. We should be able to win there if we run good race.

You're from Georgia. I talked to people because it's my belief that Americans are interested in every race. They care deeply about getting the Senate back. We have to beat Raphael warnick. Why are you a better candidate to beat Rafael wernick than anyone else running? Of course, the big name is Herschel Walker. We don't deny her. Why are you better than a Herschel and everybody else should take on pastor warning can beat him? Yeah. Well, number one, none of them let me back up. We're running for the U.S. Senate, of course. And that's not two years like Congress is not four years like the president, it's 6 years. It's so long, it's almost scary. You can either do a lot of good or a lot of bad. And we learned in the past, we had a nice man, a military hero. I appreciate a service. John McCain, right? He served our nation and then he went to the U.S. Senate. We found out just because you serve in the military like 13 immediate family members of ours, four of my brothers. I mean, again, I hold them in the highest regard, but I've learned the hard way. We have as a nation that just because your military doesn't necessarily mean you're conservative.

Justice Breyer Retires Amid a Coming Constitutional Reset

"We're going to keep unpacking this justice breyer news looks like our prediction was right. He's going to wait to summer. To step down for a variety of reasons, obviously the most obvious is that he wants to play out this term. And he wants to have his successor be confirmed while the Democrats still control the Senate. Now there's a couple different ways that we can analyze this. The first is the Democrats are worried they're going to lose control of the United States Senate because of good candidates like Herschel Walker and Ron Johnson running. The second is that they're going to try to use this to motivate their base to try and let's say lessen the loss or try and mitigate the damage I should say of the pending red wave. They're trying to thwart the red wave and it does go to this deeper point that I think the Democrats have a variety of different surprises they are going to roll out. They are not going to give up power easily. It's likely that Republicans are going to take back power. It's very likely, but it is not a 100%. It's not certain by any means. And to think that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are just going to willingly give up power without deploying every single trick they have at their disposal, you're fooling yourself, especially people that are near the end of their career. This is why they have the January 6th commission. This is precisely why they're trying to now do this nonsense with the Supreme Court. They're going to try to politicize roe versus wade, amongst many other things. Now, another poll has Biden under 40% approval, a Harvard Harris poll has Biden approval at 39%. The gender gap has also disappeared and Biden is upside down with both men and women by 14 points. If Democrats felt confident that they would hold the Senate, they would want brier to stay on until they have a more secure vote and a larger margin. So then they could confirm a less moderate

It was great working with you on Wednesday night and I especially appreciated a couple of things you said and I want to go over that. Would you explain to people that because of your own mental health background, you work a lot with our troops to make sure that they don't let mental health issues get in the way of their coming home. Well, about 15 years ago, I started a program called patriot support because we have our young men and women that go over to these countries and they fight for this country here to greatest country in the world and some of them can adapt and some of them can not and they have problems and we call them crazy because they may have a mental illness. Well, I went through a mental thing in my life after football and I overcame it. And my thing is, I wanted to get and help the military by going by having this program called pager support where I go to a base in our TNM has no shame to ask for help. I try to talk them through it and have them understand what's going on. And since then I've been to 400 basis all over the world.

I'm trying to i i wanna let me let me just put this to you this way. I want you to be realistic about what we're dealing with georgia. The democrats are playing for keeps here and every candidate matters and i understand the legacy in the love affair with herschel walker. I do. I also understand as someone who has run campaigns that the democrats are totally going to exploit his mental health issues. And those of you who think the media will cry f- foul about that. I got a bridge to sell you. The media will work with the democrats to exploit that and turn off suburban voters. They will fundamentally wished to turn off suburban voters you. The republicans of georgia cannot win this race or loan. And if you put up a candidate who the voters do not like or are worried about. They will stick with warnock because they've already voted for warnock. You have to give them a pleasing alternative. And yes warnock ran over his wife and i think the republicans frankly failed to build a cage for themselves that they wanted to attack or knocking ossoff constantly in georgia as left wing wackadoo been on bringing socialism. Which you may think is true. But what are you gonna do what. What's your alternative in the offer. A good alternative. On top of that yet forager twenty seven thousand two hundred five republicans said well. It's going to be stolen so there's no reason to go vote. Had those four hundred twenty seven thousand two hundred five republicans turned out the republicans would have one. Now you bring others four hundred twenty five twenty seven thousand two hundred five republicans and you turn off a bunch of suburban voters because you guys got multiple personality disorder and and they're able to successfully provoke him on the campaign trail. Well guess what. Senator worn out goes from a two year term to a six year term. Plus those two years. That's the problem. You gotta deal with realistically so just think about it.

But the candidates mattered in taken and richard murdoch flailed around and cost the republicans a senate majority and harry reid's scrapped the filibuster for nominations and began packing courts for barack obama. The question for the nation and in particular for those of you in georgia. We're listening to the program is. Are you going to take a chance on. A man who is self declared self admitted multiple personality disorder because of his name. I d. that's that's the question you must ask. Will he be a candidate. This is a state that donald trump lost. He didn't he wasn't stole roaming. I'm getting emails from people. Still very adamant. It was stolen from him. Because don't you know. Kelly leffler and and david produce got more votes than donald trump and so that was proof he would you know what In two thousand sixteen the republican nominee for the united states senate Then johnny isakson in georgia got more than a million votes. The donald trump in georgia a lot of people voted for joe biden and then voted for the republican senators. In fact there was a six point swing in the run off to the republicans with donald trump not on the ballot but it wasn't enough to offset the four hundred twenty seven thousand two hundred five republicans. Who said that. it's going to be stolen anyway. I'm not going to go vote. The republicans lost georgia wit to joe biden. Fair and square. I know that hurts some of you. I know it pays you to have to believe it. I know many of you won't believe it but it's the truth. This is a state that went to. Joe biden enlarge part because the suburbs wanted nothing to do with donald trump. Will they want something to do with herschel walker who many of them are new to georgia. Well past the time. He lived in georgia. Will they want to vote for a guy. They have no familiarity with. They don't care about and he's got multiple personality disorder. I will tell you.

"And the president of the united states. Donald trump is playing favorites in those races with people who may Hump his leg better than the others but aren't necessarily good at drawing out the independent voters who the republicans need see in georgia and in arizona. You need more than just republicans to win. You have independence as well. And i don't know a republican now. I know a letter. Republicans who publicly say. Yeah herschel go all the way. I don't know a single one who believes it privately. What i'm told privately. Is they think he becomes the republican nominee unless superpac shows up and spins a lot of money to rough him up and say hey. Don't pull a roy moore remember roy moore rem rewire look. I had endorsed roy. Moore and roy moore not have skeletons has caused that. I had to walk bike. My doors busy. And i know this. No way and roy moore got the nomination in doug jones to the senate and there's a lot of republican concerned in georgia. We may be looking at roy moore two point. Oh with herschel walker. Except it's not a young girl situation. It's a series mental health. You which herschel walker to his credit has been open about. You don't wanna ding guy. Because he's been open with his mental health struggles but at the same time. You have to ask yourself. What will the democrats do in general you know. They're going to pull out the stops and the media is gonna help them. Destroy herschel walker. The guy is going to go from the hero of the state of georgia in football to half the state immediately hating him because he runs a trump loving republican donald trump lost. Georgia wasn't stolen. He lost it. And it's going to downhill from there. And that's the problem. So unless a superpac comes forward and dedicates itself to stopping herschel walker. He's probably going to be the republican nominee. Now i gotta tell you. I late them sadler on the show last week. I'm actually intrigued by the guy. And a lot of my affiliates down in south georgia a vp Down in invite billion. Several of the others had people reach out. Say yeah he connects wanna one. He's he's got to work on connecting in a crowd he connects wanna learn. But they're very intrigued by having a young guy a seal who worked in afghanistan.

Who's a congressman has thought about running but wasn't gonna run if if herschel walker got in there a couple other people running as well. I can't remember all the people who are running. I've been intrigued by the sadler campaign but walker probably gets it in georgia for those who you. Don't who herschel walker is. He's probably the greatest college football players of all times the played for the university of georgia. He's a legend in georgia but he deals with a multiple personality disorder. He's been very open about it to his credit but Got a a history of involvement with the police and a lot of opposition research. That's going to come out on him.

Biden Sees Worst Record of Confirmed Ambassador Appointees in Recent History

"It's been nearly eight months. And the biden administration does not have a single ambassador to a country confirmed now white house officials say that there's genuine concern. As of this week. Joe biden is trailing behind donald trump in terms of senate confirmed appointees and his nearly two hundred behind barack obama and george w bush giving biden the worst record of confirmed appointees in recent history according to a white house official divided administration is using the august recess as a mercker to pressure the senate to confirm a package of noncontroversial nominees. Before they take off and has been trying to negotiate with mitch mcconnell. The finger pointing from the white house isn't just republicans but also chuck schumer according to sources with the knowledge of the situation but with the bif and the budget dominating the agenda all the senate or time has been focused on passing major legislation. Leaving little time for confirmations shimmer has touted the fact that in the first six months the senate confirmed mortgages than any other administration in the past fifty years this all comes as biden has promised to reset us relationships around the world. But that's a bit of a tall task without a single ambassador in place and it's not just ambassadors nominee has yet to be named to lead the office of management and budget. The fda commissioner is also acting without a nominee submitted the powerful position of us attorney for the southern district of new york is still awaiting confirmation. Max dire president of partnership for public service which tracks dominations had this to say. Were missing critical leadership in our government. Yes there are people in acting roles and they can be amazing but they don't have the same political horizon. It's the substitute teacher phenomenon. You're there to keep the costs going but you're not there for the long

"Working every day to remember the forgotten. The sean hannity show twenty five till the top of the hour. We'll get to your calls in a second eight hundred nine. Four one sean. Let me play you know with all the ever changing rules and mixed messaging the experts wrong. They're here there there. Everywhere you know everybody forgets so conservatives are gonna make people die. I supported operation warp speed from day. One in january twenty twenty. I was saying scientists medical research in america probably gonna save the world with therapeutics and ultimately vaccine and lo and behold we got it done and donald trump did it by by creating a system with warp speed where these pharmaceutical companies were not going to risk losing a fortune. If they didn't get the therapeutics the vaccine in record time which they ended up doing because they had the financial strength and support of the government to do that at the time All the vaccine hesitancy. Let's let's for example. Let's listen to ms dnc. Listen to their hesitancy. What they were saying in large part because i just hate donald trump since the pandemic began. We've heard a lot of promises about vaccines the race. To approve proven effective vaccine has taken a toll on public trust especially in the middle of a heated presidential election. Only twenty seven percent of americans say they would definitely get an approved. Corona virus vaccine trust vaccine among the american public is at an all time low and continuing to be mixed messages from the administration and from their own agencies strange announcement from the trump administration that they want states to have vaccine distribution centers. Ready to go by november. I two days before the election even though no vaccines are yet available laurie. Garrett says quote. I have no confidence that a safe effective vaccine. We'll be ready for use by halloween wars. I could no longer recommend that anyone retained faith. In any public health. Pronouncements issued by government agencies officials insist no corners are being cut. The timetable is simply too short for full safety else's of any vaccine and it seems like it's sort of cause for alarm that there's no standard promulgated by the fda or by anybody for comparing the relative effectiveness and safety of the various vaccines that are all being export operation. Warp speed is about delivering a vaccine faster than we have ever done it before the canopy down quickly and safely well the administration may want a vaccine for political reasons yesterday and frankly all of us would love a vaccine as soon as possible. Scientists are sounding the alarm that we must resist the urge to rush out a product. We aren't sure about because the vaccine safer. Is it not safe. There's a communist win is it coming. Donald trump has politicized the treatment and vaccine process from the very beginning. It's pretty unbelievable. Now listen to democrats. They were skeptical about taking the coroner's vaccine. I don't trust trump. it's trump accede. It'll call it the trump vaccine anymore as you know. President trump has promised a corona virus vaccine by the end of the year. Or maybe sooner. Would you trust that vaccine. No i would not trust his word. I would trust the word of public health experts and scientists but not donald trump first of all. I don't trust the president on vaccines. I think it's going to be a very skeptical. American public about taking the vaccine and it should be. He will push anything to get reelected. Don't fall for. And by the way i will take the vaccine after i would be hesitant to receive the vaccine if it were approved by the end of the year. I'm gonna yes. I would be hesitant. Mean if doctors and scientists like dr algae are taking that fact seen of course i will take the vaccine but we also know that we can't trust the president and take his word. I trust flaxseeds. I trust scientists. But i don't trust donald trump moment. The american people can't either. I believe all across the country. You're going to need someone other than this. Fda and this cdc saying it safe so predictable eight hundred nine four. One sean is on number. You wanna be a part of the program. Cindy is an iowa. Cindy glad you called. Thanks for being with us. Hi there I just have a couple of ahern First of all just about every day. Get a chance to hear part of what you're what you're talking about. And you keep talking about delaware. And they have stricter stricter stricter rules and laws and you know what it is because they always go democrat. If they didn't go democrat they would be. They would be the the left of of georgia and texas. So that's just something that I know you know that I just wanted to point it out. And the second thing i've been wondering about is where's kamala harris her little visit to the hospital on sunday and nothing has been said. There's no routine no routine physical or checkup on a sunday at a government hospital so I'm curious i. I think that if she were cova positive and she supposedly vaccinated. That would be a huge. Pr problem for the last. And i'd really like to know where she is and how she's doing. I'd never believe for a second that this was a scheduled medical checkup on a sunday. At walter reed. This is right. After she had met with the texas lawmakers that blew up in their private jet while they themselves were filibustering to ask democrats to end the filibuster so i i haven't really followed her schedule. Let me go. Look into that. And see if i can't get the answer for sure but i i don't recall seeing her after that and you know they're they're this very week. I mean when jen psaki and the biden administration of an asked how many people at the white house have contracted covert after everybody. There's been vaccinated. They don't wanna mention it again. You have one hundred. And fifty million americans fully vaccinated. And then you have one hundred and fifty thousand breakthrough cases that we at least know about. There's probably a lot more where people fully vaccinated still contract corona virus that the those are the cdc numbers and the you know we knew the efficacy was never one hundred percent to begin with now. We're seeing that maybe with the variance that these vaccines are less effective than the original corona virus. Which wouldn't scientifically shocked me or be surprising to me But it's the mix messaging that they keep giving us no massive. I then one mask then to mask. Then it's if you're vaccinated no mass but then maybe maybe you'll have masks indefinitely then you if you get vaccinated you're never going to have to worry about wearing a mask now you're back to being vaccinated wearing a mask and the confusion and the lack of trust is coming right out of the biden administration starting with joe and joe biden themselves Anyway i appreciate the call. Thank you cindy. Eight hundred nine four one. Sean is on number. If you wanna be a part of the program. He don't wanna play this. See this these comments chip roy. He wasn't he. He was very passionate on the house floor today. We have a crisis at our border or playing footsie with mask mandates. In the people's house this sham of an institution is doing nothing for the american people. Here's what he said declaration tonight. At city council that no illegal immigrants can be released in the city of you. Balloting per the cdc guidelines countries on their list without a negative cova test and we have had our health authority right orders that give us the authority to have them.

And that's why i keep telling people people to style like tomorrow decide right here. That's the guy. I got decide at my own time because i said this is bigger than just plan football. This is bigger than plan Getting into the octagon. This is the united states senate seat that can change the world know it can change georgia. It can change a lot of things so it's not something i got. I need to take lightly. I need to take it very very seriously. And that's what i've been doing and people may not understand that. But they don't understand herschel walker guys if you don't understand her to walk it has nothing you can do to me. They're got to deter me from my mission and my mission his and make the right decision for the state of georgia. Make the right decision for this. United states of america.

And then you know. I love our military base every three weeks. I love the united states military right now. I think what we're doing. This country is not right to them. Let me ask you this. Because i think this is determinative in in so many different ways. If you if you've heard what stacey. Abrams and raphael warnock in jim. I'm sorry joe biden has said you know jim. Crow two point zero. Meanwhile the state of delaware has the most restrictive voting laws in the country compared to georgia. Which has some of the most accessible how they hurt that state with that narrative. Well they just continue to use that word jim crow. You know like i say. I'll say an element. You mentioned jim crow racism. Ah you're racist nobody can say anything. Let's get away from that. But i think people have to be on as i said. I love the lord. Jesus i love my god but you gotta speak the truth. The truth is we have a problem going on with something. That's going on country. Our leaders don't seem to want to respect what the constitution is united states that stands for and one of the things i was looking at. I say the ultimate office is you're supposed to defend the constitution. Foreign and domestic. That's the tate. Well i hear that. They want to change the constitution but the constitution is bigger than that. No part of whether you're republican or democrat should have the right to change the constitution. I wanted to explore this further with you. I like the idea that you're doing it your way and i know you that if you get in. I know you well enough and a long enough. That if you're in you're in to win that. I do know herschel walker. We love having you back. Your dear friend. Think the world you would love to see. Iran would support your candidacy in a heartbeat.

They are problems but we can solve those problems together. We can solve together and we have people that want to address those problems. But i think the go to put down this country and you're an opposite a lot of time and people can disagree with me but i don't know how you can because what other country do you like you tim. What other countries that. You liked that you like to go to. That has been at things in the united states of america. You tell me that country and if you liked that contra maybe you can go there. I'm saying and i'm not being mean i'm just saying what other countries have. What the united states of america have and they'll saying we can even make it better but to sit in another country to put down this contract when all the athletes they i'll bet ninety percent of the for athletes.

May we have everything we won't my friend. Barry farber was right when they said there's never been a country that's accumulated more power abused less than i add and america's using its power to advance the human condition or the country in history has done that and the beauty of our framers and founders. They built a system that we had mechanisms and a path to right wrongs and correct injustices. And i don't care if you want to go back to the civil war or you wanna go to the the historic sixty four civil rights act of sixty five voting rights act. America has has made major strides in becoming a more perfect union. Do we still have far to go. Absolutely are they're ignorant people in this country absolutely But they are the minority and their frowned upon. And i can tell you as a conservative any of these people that that.

I'll tell you that well you just said it majority of the people nothing to do with anyone like that. Because that's not america. America is us getting together to youth have made it pretty cool now to Go out and and say something. Bad about the united states of america they stay up to go out and beat someone who disagree with you. You know that's not cool and that's not america. That's not that's breaking the law.

Let's get more black coaches. Let's go get more this. let's go. Let's not just try to keep people emotional because that's what they seem to be doing. No i'm just gonna pat you on the here but i'm not going to change anything you know. That's what people are looking for. You know that's what you're looking for. You got a lot of african american players. Don't you remember years years ago. That was not in african american players. Go to major league colleges now the nfl now things have changed. in historical. black colleges has gone down because most afro american players were not go into. The historical black colleges went down and not an african american advocates are going to be the biggest big schools now so now they got an opportunity to go play in.

After that and i've heard a lot of people call those program and the ratings bear out with the olympics with major league baseball with the nba with the nfl. That this is having a negative impact on viewership you know and we explained earlier. The net result of this is going to be okay less money for these. These athletic organizations the nba Mlb nfl and now the olympics. As as people just they they don't want get lectured at at an event and you you destroying a unifying moment doesn't make any sense to me. joining us now is herschel walker a former olympian himself on top of being one of the most gifted and talented running backs and in the history of Professional football Sir welcome back to the program. Great to have you sean how you doing. I have important political questions for you. Know it's common today but more me that one. Yeah it's common but let me first ask you about this. You're on the other night george. Foreman was on the other night. You both olympians. What are your thoughts about. What you think about gwen. Barry what do you think about what lolo jones said. Well you know i. It's it's sad. It's sad because you know. I think it's the wrong place wrong time and the reason i say that is You know this is the united states olympics and if you're gonna compete in it You know yes what you're supposed to be represented and if you don't want to represent that you don't have to go but did say you're gonna protest without having any kind of outcome. You know you can talk about national anthem and you can sell things about it but you know i. It's bigger than that. You know if you want to do something about it. You gotta hold people accountable. And what i mean by that is You need to get out and people a vote you know. That's one of the problems. We have people voting. You know people are not getting putting the right people in office that can go in and change things you know. Things are staying the same. And what i mean by that. Is you know if you want to change anything. You gotta get people in office. That's gonna change it not just to make people motions because that seemed to rely doing right now. You want to be very emotional. And people don't won't sports. It'd be something that you've got politics involved. These athletes white black all different race that over their competing campus. And yet you have someone complaining about the united states of america when yet. You're gonna hold no the country doing that. I think it's shameful. I think he's very same. Because this country and i want america to win. I'm sorry but i'm i'm passionate about the. Us won in the olympics. And so fun out our blessed to have an opportunity to compete for my country in a bobsled. I was very honored. And it'd be honest with you for the first time in my life and this never happens to me to see the whole united states team coming to that Coliseum de france almost bought a tear to my because represented the united states of america. And what i see here is people seem like these Athletes from other countries. This is on his truth. They are jealous of their american africa. They think we have so much. But yet the athletes that we're here we're not we're like Oh where shame of america. Not going to stand for the flag. I'm not gonna say this because of a distant because the people that have died for that fly diet for that national anthem. And yet you going to complain like you're gonna change something well if you're going to change something while you change it by hold people accountable and what i mean about going to vote putting right people in office. That's gonna change things that's how it changed. It doesn't change by you not Standing for the flag not put his national. Having by you wanna changed flag by you. Wanna play a blindness.

I got to imagine with google maps and ways that he eh. Gps that he's probably capable of delivering pizza. I hope you're not i. It's not hard not the hardest job in the world but you need a little something and i. I don't think he has with his team of handlers. He could do it if you get.

"We continue bill. O'reilly is with us. All things. simple. Man bill o'reilly dot com. It's very frustrating. Everybody i talked to now. Is that a point of you. Know they've had it. They feel like that. That people have been straightforward. They haven't been honest. They don't they. Save powell the science. They don't powell the science and it gets very frustrating. Not every you know. This is not a cookie cutter situation. People have rare medical conditions where their doctors say. No you really. You really can't get the vaccine. I interviewed a young woman but there. There are legal exemptions for that so well okay but what about people that had cova. That are being told that they've got to get vaccinated. In light of the science of the cleveland clinic they're being told to get vaccinated and that is a problem but the no how long the antibody say in the system but here here's another aspect of this. No one will talk about that. They're a to mary. Primary groups of people who want to be vaccinated in the united states. And i'm speaking generally now all right. The first is the people who don't trust medical People or the government and most of those people are on the right far right. The second group are african. Americans african americans so much percentage of african americans that have declined the the vaccine than others. We got about thirty seconds. I'll let you finish your thought. Okay so the. Corporate media will never report on the low vacs rate among african americans ever the lay it all on the conservatives who don't wanna be backs and that's another example of the corrupt media culture that we have in america. Yeah well listen. I appreciate your thoughts. This is not cookie cutter. my advice stays the same. I really believe that you've got to make your own decisions. I believe in liberty and freedom. And i also believe in medical privacy and i believe in doctor patient confidentiality. That doesn't come up. I believe you gotta take it seriously research at talk to your doctor. Your doctor's taken no account your unique medical history your current medical condition. And then it's not. It's not for people like us bill to tell people what to do. In my opinion you agree with that I'm Very humble in this phone with what. I'm doing the people. Yeah give give the folks the information and then ultimately try and be as even information.

"You're not black. And addressed it in a very, very powerful way. In terms of just trying to cast the president. They're all in on race and being racist. 12 Herschel Walker addressed that. I'm not an actor, a singer, All politicians. I'm Herschel Walker. Most of you know me as a football player. But I'm also a father, a man of faith and a very good judge of character. I've known Donald Trump of 37 years. And I don't mean just casual ran into him from time to time. I'm talking about a deep personal friendship. Watch him as our own horrible professional football team. Read that they bought the team he set out to learn. He learned about the history of the team, The players, the coaches, every detail. Then here's what he learned to make the team better. I wash them in the board room. He could be in the middle of a big medium. But if one of the kids was on the phone, he dropped everything to take the call. I think probably in the first hour, there might not have been anything more powerful than these two quick ones, One of which, I know I have time to get in. And that is maximal Alvarez. This is somebody who fled Cuba. And he is seeing socialism on the streets and socialism in the Democratic convention, and he's found a firsthand tale to tell, and he told it powerful. Got ¥5. I will decide. Here's what I've decided. My decision very easy. I choose President Trump. Because I choose America. Freedom. Must do here. My dad. There is no other place to go. Thank you. I made a good lord. Bless America. It doesn't get much more powerful or emotional than that. The McCloskey has laid out a great case that these tyrants on the street ran for Congress, and actually, one will represent the first district. They are not satisfied.

"Ribs and cowboys since 1942. They don't make places like waltz anymore. Billy Cunningham, the Great American, of course, dramatic moments last night at the RNC and Charlotte. May. It was wonderful to see Herschel Walker doing so well in speaking so highly about our president, also a new candidate for the congressional seat. I thought in Baltimore Kimberly Classic Did a greatjob joining you and I now is Hogan Gidley, who's the national spokesman for the Trump Campaign, and Hogan Gidley. Welcome again to the Bill Cunningham Show. No good. How are you? I'm doing Well, thanks so much for having me on. I do appreciate time now. Hogan, are you named after Ben? No hope. Hope I tell you what. One of the greatest things I saw in the Golf Channel was a two part series on Ben Hogan. It gave me more inspiration for golf. But let's talk about reality. From watching most of what happened last night. I thought Herschel Walker was absolutely wonderful. Along with Kimberly Classic who's running for the old seat of Congressman Commons in Baltimore to you to the president, What was one or two highlights from last night? There are so many Herschel was a great one. I actually seen him earlier and spoken with him, and he is just such a great advocate for this president. And also, you know, for this wonderful country that's afforded him so many opportunities. Coming from where he came from, and being able T such a megastar like he is, and he's got such a raw talent, and I loved his message. I thought that classical music is a great job to Senator Scott. My my senator from South Carolina, Of course, then also Governor Haley, I guess have asked really is, you know, I thought those were some really highlights. Stupid. I thought Max Alvarez was. It was so great talking about Cuba, and it was such a good counter message to the Democrats because they spent a large portion of their Convention, basically saying they want to revert this country over to some form of socialism and to listen to someone like that, who want no part of it. Ah, and loved this country for who she is, and the opportunities that America's afford them, I think is is a stark contrast to start different than one of my favorite moments. You know Hogan one, Senator Scott from South Carolina, home in the Gamecocks and the Tigers. Talked about my family, one from cotton to Congress, and it was only in America that could have happened. You know, at some point, maybe there'll be a reawakening and enlightenment and the black community looking at itself and saying We've been within one political party now for about 50 to 100 years. Look what it's brought us to look how our schools look at the police department look at the like of job creation, No family structure, riots and burning and looting from Portland, Kenosha. I don't know what's worse. Kenosha or Portland, Cincinnati. We had rights for four or five days and I'm waiting for someone on the liberal left like a Van Jones or others. Who spend their time ripping America to talk about what the Democratic parties than to Black America and not for Black America. So when Kimberly Classic and Herschel Walker and Senator Scott and I have Jesse Lee Peterson coming up in about 20 or 30 minutes in Los Angeles and talk about what's happening there, The contrast is stark. And so at this point is the president's satisfied in the first day. What happened last night and secondly, what's happening tonight? If anything, Well, absolutely very excited. Very satisfied. You hit on it. Listen, these cities largely burning with with, you know, church is aflame with federal buildings in trouble. All of the rioting and looting as you just pointed out. They're all controlled by Democrats think during a Democrat convention. They maybe give a couple of solutions how their party who oversees all these cities. Could fix some of these issues worsen that they didn't even bring it up. They just left it like it wasn't even happening, calling in peaceful protests and you've got to get out there and make change and all that type of stuff in the kind of coded language. It was so offensive because these air really people's businesses that are being destroyed homes being destroyed lives being ruined. Not just by the physical assaults. The people are dead now because of these things, and the Democrats didn't even mention it. I thought that was a really, Ah, bad look for them. And, of course, just a total disregard for the truth. In reality, what's going on? Also, second videos come out today on showing the The behavior of one Jacob Blake and Kenosha, Wisconsin and indicates he was he was on the other side of the car for a while. Wrestling with the police in uniform, which is a dangerous situation. The National National Basketball Association Police review panel headed up by LeBron James has declared this to be almost a police murder, which it is not One of the sadness is is that there's a cycle of violence in many urban areas that cannot be stopped whether it's the magnificent mile in Chicago, and what's false information circulated by the shooting of a black kid, which did not happen. Kenosha, Wisconsin. I don't know all the facts about the shooting. I have Jacob Blake. That's going to be to be determined. He was a fleeing felon, open warrants for sexual assaults, use of guns, domestic violence. He shouldn't have done what he did. But nonetheless when the Democratic governor The Democratic governor of Wisconsin simply declares that's governor ever's that the police were racist that it was an unjustified murder without any evidence whatsoever. Other than a video, it's only served part of the story. It is disgusting. Can you wax philosophically? Hogan Gidley as to how we can get out of the cycle of violence in these urban democratically controlled areas. I don't see it changing any time soon. Well, I think when when the president got involved in some of the cities in the area in which he was invited in, as you know, we we do have a federal system. So when he was right in crime went down, you saw the attorney general. Announced that Operation Legend, for example, had more than 1000 arrested Ah on that on that issue, so you can move assets into the areas and try and get all of these things to stop. But look, I think so much of the mentality or attitude that America is inherently evil, or that it's the cause of the world's problems plays into a lot of that, as well. I mean, this is the greatest country on the face of the Earth is a great idea ever realized their opportunities out there that are afforded people like Tim Scott like you mentioned. Like Nikki Haley, that you couldn't see anywhere else? Uh, not even close. And you look at someone like Jay Leno Mar, For example. I mean, talk about someone who is Disgusted with this country. This country saved her for a war torn area and you got.

All right, Thank you so much. Kelly. We're going to get back to our conversation with political analyst Gary Dietrich on night. One of the RNC. We were talking about the defections of so many high profile Republicans saying they're going to vote for Joe Biden do Do you think this is going to damage the president or George? You think that this will just be seen as these air establishment folks? They don't like him, mixing it up. You know, my guess is the base. The real trump loyalists are going to feel the latter. Christina, you know, this is an unexpected to them. No doubt, the Trump Trump campaign tried to counter that last night. With the other state legislator That said, I'm a Democrat. But I'm supporting Trump. Even Herschel Walker will be well well known to NFL fans while he's been a Republican, you know, I think Set another message. Hey, look. You know, this isn't just a one way street. So you know. Does it really change the base? No. Does it does it have some influence is to put a kink in the president's armor. Perhaps with swing voters, I guess maybe By the way, we're going to hear from Herschel Walker for our listeners, Gary and about in the next hour, So we've got that audio clip. We're going. We're going to pull up. We talk a little bit earlier with another political analyst on our program, Alex Custom Yoenis about the bump that we'd like to see or that I should say that the campaigns like to see following a convention in traditionally it's been about like five points. He thinks that in this day and age, you're not going to get a five point bump that a two or three point bump would be great in the polls. What's Biden doing in the polls? Right now? It is there a bump for him. And what's your thought on that? Well, that's that's interesting it. Alex would say that he's right that traditionally, that's the case. But right now, I mean, already going into this guy I was I was curious about whether we're going to see anything given the virtual nature of these conventions and how they've been kind of downplayed. As a result, the outcomes were obviously said, going in, but I really think right now, Sam, Here's the numbers. The numbers we have so far, and there'll be a lot more pulling this week and certainly next week after the Republican Convention is that Biden Harris have not gotten a voter bump, in other words, that people haven't changed their votes, but their popularity numbers have risen. And that's interesting When you think about that, that's what we know so far. Was the message when they close out this RNC does it need to be safety and security and those kinds of police issues or does it need to be the economy? What? What message does he need to leave? Well, if we go back to the time, the time one phrases the economy, stupid Clinton war room coined in 92. We have to say, you know, I think it would be all there, but it's going to be economy. I put that number one. It's going to be Covert number two safety security number three and then you get to other issues. You know it is going to be our standing in the international world. Some people still really concerned about the impact. For example, China can be all the above. But you know, it's always hard, no pun intended that Trump the economy. When it comes to our presidential race, you could look a research over many decades that has always come out as sort of a deciding factor.

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

Jalen Ramsey's troubled Jaguars tenure ends with blockbuster trade to Rams

"Terms of Jalen Ramsey will talk about this he finally got what he wanted the end result the disgruntled corner headed to the Los Angeles Rams the Jaguars finally relented and Ramsey to the west coast for first round draft picks two of the one in twenty twenty one in two thousand twenty one also a fourth rounder in the two thousand twenty one draft here's a statement for Jaguars executive VP. Tom Coughlin given the situation with Jalen we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars for this season and well into the future we feel the trade that we struck with the rams gives us great value for the next two drafts and remain confident that our team today will compete this season for a division title Jalen Wasser Productive Flair but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los A- Angela here's head coach Doug marrone obviously I had a good relationship with him and we were working together to get them healthy on the field and that that's what my focus was so he can get on the field and help us you know win football games and now you know how concentrating on on the players gotta here and and getting our guys focused on on on Cincinnati I think in his league nothing ever really surprises me anymore you know especially from the business side of things I found out like everybody else did last night you know lately point Dave came in and told me Rams reporter Lindsey theory joins us from L. A. and Lindsey listen there's been a lot of coming and going and all Ryder roster changes what's the general reaction to all of the news from the rams this week Wendy for a team that's three and three and in the mid of a three game losing streak certainly renewed buzz and energy at the team facility this morning now I am told the Jalen Ramsey is in route to Los Angeles and he's expected here later this afternoon or the rams do expect that he will pass his physical and I am told that he could be on the field for them as soon as Sunday against the Falcons now this would be viewed as a move where the rams are going all in once again to try to make a repeat super bowl run but I am told the Rams really believe that this is a move for their long-term future keep to leave and Marcus Peters or playing the season on expiring contracts Ramsey has another season left and the rams do intend to sign him to a long term engine now as you mentioned he's not the only new face here at the facility today Kenny Young Austin Corbett also were here they have passed their physicals though remains to be seen if they will be at practice later this afternoon and one more note Wendy Safety John Johnson is headed to injured reserve because of shoulder injury. Lindsey thank you it was a rare blockbuster trade a few weeks now before the trading deadline Ramsey joined a small handful of veteran players traded for multiple first round picks in the last third two years or so Khalil Mack and Jay Cutler garnered big offers from the bears the dolphins move two first rounders for Ricky Williams and it too big halls to get Herschel Walker an Eric Dickerson listen we can go back to the jags but since June Ramsey is moving onto the rams let's start with what he means for the La Rams Right now we'll Wade Phillips now gets a play defense the way he wants to Wakefield's really wants to play in your face on the line of scrimmage with the defensive line pressure and then in your face on the live with men cover corners. He hasn't been able to do that to be honest with you with Marcus Peters Marcus Peters is not not played good man to man coverage needs a better zone corner so now wade having Jalen gets the opportunity to get back to Colin defense the way he wants to do it I'll be really interested to see if they use Jalen the way we want I bill belichick thrill reverse where you put him on the team's best number two receiver and then everybody else gets to get double teams opposing for the opposing offense but it makes their defense significantly best Champ Bailey the dion sanders I mean the great quarters you can do that lock him up and then roll the other side I think you'll see that the other thing that was curious for me was that Tom Coughlin mentioned that Jaguars were better this year and going forward I think maybe either that was miss written or because they're not speak they're not better by getting a great player out of there so I miss quotes tim so expe- Joe Joe Listen you were you were spot on Jalen Ramsey never changed his stance which is what you asserted from the get-go and I would assume just finally came to a point where it just made no sense to have him on a roster when he wasn't going to win this transaction happened yesterday the first thing came to my mind is how often the people I was always talking to that this was going to work out for Jalen Ramsey like there was no fretting I didn't hear any fear and now that this is resolved itself in the way that it has it kind of plays into the tone that I've been hearing all along now I was talking to a source obviously familiar with Jalen Ramsey. They said that he's excited considering this a fresh start to be with the rams I think one of the questions that I had in talking to ram source last night was why not hold onto Marcus Peters to have opposite Jalen Ramsey in terms of making this movie now one thing that the ram source said to me is that it looked like it was clear that less need did not want to pay marcus. Peters beyond this year he's eligible unrestrained the free agency next year and it was better just to rip off quote unquote the band-aid now so then it becomes well who is opposite Jalen Ramsey for this game against the Atlanta Falcons they mentioned that two thousand seventeen when cal Roby Coleman I came to the teen that he did fill in for a keep to Leon outside first and second down and then on Nichols would have him excuse me on third down having a nickel or sometimes have troy hill on the outside and then have an RC in the middle so expect something like that or combination of that against the Falcons either way Julio Jones saw the rams problems in the short turn no because the opposite of the ball is atrocious right now and that's been there issue as far as being a front now what I will say is it does play into them getting better though like we can focus on golfing what this offense has been doing but with the guy like Jalen Ramsey not only does he hell Aaron Donald give him a maybe a half a second more to get to the quarterback he also may be able to steal a possession to for you and this ninety four was out there so air down gets another piece on the back end that can help him hold off quarterbacks for a second for him to get there and that's that's really all I can think about so maybe you

"herschel walker" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"Herschel Walker is with us and former NFL player Minnesota Vikings Philadelphia Eagles New York Giants, and yes, he actually worked for more and more for your actually played for President Trump's team. If for the I guess what how many years did you play in the New Jersey generals with Donald Trump on? Well, you know, he owned a team for almost two and a half years. So I was waiting for two and a half years time. Yeah. Now, you have just been appointed to this brand new position. And we're really so proud of you. Because this really matters you now work with the president and his administration on the president's council on sports fitness nutrition. And you know, you actually tested me out one day when you were in studio walks. He put the video we still have it online because I said to you. I do you know at least one hundred push ups a day at least one hundred situps a day. And then you tell me why do like three thousand setups a day, and or or how many push-ups sit-ups you do every day. Well, I'm doing about thirty five hundred about fifteen hundred push ups. But you know, I I was so so impressed with you. Because you told your friend. Now, you are your dear friend. I was a fan watching on television. And then I I hope I can tell you a fan, but in my walked into the studio, and I saw you I said, wait a minute you in shape and. I was totally impressed. Fitness is what I'm all about. So I was I was told him impressed you impress. All right. I gotta tell you something. So I recently lost about thirteen pounds. Have you watched the TV show? I said nobody nobody volunteers said, hey, you, look great. You lost weight. I have to ask for funding. Thirteen thousand goes you looked in great shape. But I saw you the last time but tell you I was gonna say your face is thin. You think? Thinner. I actually underneath all that fat. I I didn't realize actually had a six pack developing. Could it on? I can help them to cut it up. I can do that. You know, one of the things I love we share is. I got started. I don't know six and a half. I can't remember the start date, but I'm training for sometimes five days a week. Hour hour and a half mixed martial arts. And you know, I don't lift weights. But I do the push ups and sit ups in core building. And I do it every day. No matter what. And and you're like, you know, what you make me want to do a lot more than I'm doing. I thought one hundred push ups a day was a lot for an old guy like me. But you know, what? That's good. That's good. You're doing good. And I'm not I don't do it to try to impress. When I do it because I still compete sometime. Full. So it has to be not do so many now how long would it take you to do thirty five hundred push ups and how many and setups? The third five hundred situps I can do that in twenty five thirty minutes. The pushups takes a little longer fifteen hundred push ups gonna take me about forty five minutes to do. Those guys do set say consecutively. Yeah. I do. But it it's all done by ten o'clock in the morning. So I get all that out of the way and stop being taught my day. And so is route I got where if I don't do it. It's gonna bother me. So I try to get it. In other words, I the rest of the day. You know, our I got I think conceivable to me because I mean, I I do sometimes I do as much as one hundred and fifty sit-ups, right? We do, you know in groups of what thirty or more, for example. I do these leg throws where I have a sense that you know, this guy. Yeah. But I mean throws them down violently, and if my feet touch the ground, he's pissed you really like, you know, I mean, he's seriously. And he's ripping a strongest help throwing them all over the place. And I'm I'm not gonna get yelled at so I don't touch the ground, but I do thirty or fifty those and mom feeling it. It's burnin bad. How do you have that long? Now that is very difficult that is that is a little bit tougher. They're the most people as most people to do that is a good sit at four. But then again, you're in shape now. And then you also martial arts being do that. So that was good for you. Cores your the cord everything body gotta remember that your stomach is an engineer body. That's where ever to be generated from from that core. Now, I also do they're they're painful. I mean, they're so hard. How I mean you can you do one hundred v ups and then immediately after a hundred hard legs rose you can do that easily. Oh, yeah. I can I can do that. And be good for you. Go gonna work more the Justice, Tom, you know, it's gonna work the arms well, arm shoulder. So you can so that's happening it, then also if you grab your sense as legs as he's doing going down, your your Griffin and holding. So you you're a lot of chances of in your upper body. But as you stop your legs before they hit the ground been tents on that court stomach. Tougher. And I think it's a mental thing, and you has one. Article I sold I think a lot of kids should take get martial arts class because there's more than just about fighting is about seven discipline. I think that's what we need in this country today a lot of stuff discipline and stuff. And I think it'd be great for a lot of people. So I take taking Marshall, Dan, maybe on a good example. I mean. Maybe I'm a good exam. Sports was my life as a kid and then evolved into a passion for politics. I just even as a young kid. And, but but you know, I got older then I went away from it. So I start, you know, when I'm fifty I'm tired of being fat and out of shape and feeling weak, and I start, but I you do it just do it every day, then it becomes a part of your life. And you not only days you don't want to do it. But you do it anyway. And we see all these kids, you know, obesity issues with young kids. It's so sad and the highest percentage ever. And then you read I read the other day that if you do forty push ups a day, that's it. And of course, I I do more everyday it prolongs your life considerably just that. Well, that's true. I think studies have shown that a I s in shape, but first NATO fit give them in jeopardy as the same time. It gives them manage it. Sometimes we lose sight that says that you know, whereas, the overweight that's fat within a little bit overweight. But I was overweight. But I think what I bought challenge a lot of kids who do it on. Thank you for having me all every day, try to do at least fifteen pushups. We tried to do at least thirty. I'm not saying dornam consists context do that try to do something and try to get out and walk. I think you've got gotta get away from the social media world. I think that's a great thing. But I think kids need to get back outside so exercise, and that's why I'm so honored when the president of gave me this position because other now maybe I can get something done. You know before I always wrote about the fitness council. But I'm not sure what all they were doing. But right now, I'm trying to change a couple of things. We'll talk about what your what your plans are. Well, you know, what I say something that is really big is, you know, coming up in April. We got a listening session where people can go to to to and and this man, but we're trying to hear other what other companies are doing that. We cannot have the same agenda that we have we can sorta not really partner with get behind and push their agenda as well. And at the same time for the first time ever. And this shows that the president is really have changed a lot of things that he's helped the open up. This foundation foundation now that we're trying to create an endowment. This a hip live forever. That didn't have live forever for kids in in the future. As well. And I think that's what you gotta do. Were you not running for office, but you own in? I'm gonna only be a disposition of a certain amount of time. And I told everyone on this president counselor here is not just but a lot of other people Smith may. Phone memorial. We wanna leave a lasting legacy. I think this foundation that also is having a cows out in so many ways. And I leave a legacy behind all these kids that we can show them guys what we want. You to do is exercise have been proven that it's going to help you a healthcare is going to have to so many different things. We wanted to show them that we're behind. I totally agree with you. You know, I want to say this to two parents. The great thing about sports that I love is it duplicates life. You're gonna have to learn and take your hits. You don't always win. You're gonna have to learn to be a gracious winner. When you do would you gonna learn the harder, you work, or whatever your sport that you have a passion for that. You like the hardy at work, the better, you're gonna do the better you're gonna play and you don't want and while you're doing it. Don't forget the fun part of sports the competition because that that is what life's about competing bringing the best out of yourself. And you've done that your whole life Herschel. That's what friends I mean. I'm mired you from afar Blong before we became fronts. Well, you know, you're right. And I think sports brings it out at any teaches you how to get to get along. You know? Oh, it's so funny because you know, you have athletes be all over the wall against charges that really don't like you, you don't like the United States, but you have athletes will compete against each other. And they get along. They talk it communicates. What sports does it helps you to communicate? And I and I wish that that's what we can get in Washington right now, people communicate and people talk and people negotiated and not just people putting each other down. You know, was was finding I'm not getting away from this fitness thing. But sports if you to learn discipline learn who's the balls the coach, you got gotta you got a whole choose the head guy. And he's the one he's one you follow in. And I think that's what we gotta do here is you gotta learn who's the head guy. That's one reason. I think my group that I'm a part of its we're here together we're here to work for the president of the United States. You've given us an opportunity to change some things in the in the fitness wall. And and that's what we're trying to do these with the young athletes, you know?.

USFL vs NFL - Risky Business

"Our series on the grudge match between the US F L and the NFL United States football league championship game nineteen eighty nine. We took you back to the eighties. When an upstart spring football league came along and tried to score on the NFL's turf. The USFL backed by a new set of owners, including the likes of Donald Trump attempted to change the face and feel of America's most popular sport. In the end. The USFL folded, but the league did have a lasting impact on the game. Many of its players and coaches went onto NFL stardom and rules. I initiated by the USFL like the two point conversion and the coach's challenge are now. Staples of the National Football League today, the NFL faces new business challenges there are new concerns about footfall injuries after another tough hit in the NFL overnight. There you see Brennan wish the calls helmet on helmet head.

Mike, it's a real honor and privilege to have you on business wars. Thanks so much for doing this. It's my pleasure. Hey football is I guess you could say America's favorite professional sport still is I don't think NASCAR ever superseded football. And the NFL has been called the biggest show in the country if not on earth. I mean, what do you make of the league today, especially considering the many controversies that have been surrounding it from taking a need to you know, to to hit injuries. Well in America, we used to have a monoculture when there were three or maybe four TV networks and a few evening news broadcasts, but we've gotten fractured and we've gotten away from that. And the one exception is football. So not only is it the most dominant sport. I also think that it's to a great extent. The closest thing that we have to a culture. -tural glue. If you look at the ratings of the top twenty shows, the top twenty individually aired programs in any year football will be I don't know sixteen of the top twenty or so people think the Academy Awards is right there under the Super Bowl. No. There are three to five football games before you even get to something like the Academy Awards, and maybe a big bang theory. We'll sneak in there, so. Yeah, it's now it's not like most people or even watching every game. But it's the closest thing we have to a shared experience an agreed upon experience. And I think it says something about American twenty nineteen that we can't even agree upon football. Yeah. Yeah. Well, there's something to that. I'm sure, but what about in a business sense? I mean, part of what we've been exploring is in in the course of of examining the USFL, and it's sudden rise was how the NFL was sort of a dominant business player. And I assume that especially given the television revenue that we're still talking about football the NFL in particular as as dominant. Yeah. Yeah. Football is collectively the value of the teams are worth possibly close to a hundred billion dollars in revenue it makes upwards of fifteen billion dollars. Roger Goodell has predicted that football would be a twenty five billion dollar industry within a decade. So you can see from a business perspective. Look, we don't have to take half the audience or a quarter of the audience. If you just take a few crumbs from that gigantic pie, you could be pretty rich. So I understand why someone would say, hey, what if? Where just a pale copy just a tenth or even a fiftieth football. We could still have an enterprise that makes us a lot of money. The problem is historically. It's been hard to do that. Yeah. I wanna go back. Do you? Remember when you first heard about the USFL? I mean, were you already plugged into football at that point when the USFL made its debut. Yeah. In the early nineteen eighties. I was a big New York Jets fan, which doesn't make that much sense. Because they were that good. Although there was one year strike-shortened year that they had a decent enough team. And I remember Donald Trump who was by then a fixture in New York media and real estate circles and remember him going on the Letterman show and talking about how he took over Eastern Airlines, and it's going to be the Trump shuttle. It just seemed like one of these billionaires or millionaires on the make and he announced plans for USFL team. There were going to be called the generals and the name the name. Donald Trump wasn't the most associated name with the generals who was was her. Herschel Walker the great perhaps one of the greatest college running backs of all time, he joins the generals. And if you wanna watch a great college Heisman Trophy running back. He was the only way to watch it. And there were a lot of is on Herschel Walker Brian Sipe who was a former Cleveland Browns. Very good NFL quarterback who we hired to be on the team. And the the roster of the generals was a decent roster a plausible. They wouldn't have won five games in the NFL. But I don't think they would have gone over sixteen. So we put together a very interesting watchable product as did a few of the other owners at the time is funny. You should mention Herschel Walker because I was growing up in Georgia at the time, and you can imagine, you know, you have this Heisman Trophy winner who put UGA on the map in many respects. I mean, it just made it a championship team. And you wanted to you just expected that he would be going to the NFL. L and when the USFL scooped him up what a surprise. And I remember feeling both a sense of letdown that maybe I wouldn't get to watch him, you know, in this new league. But also a sense that something new and exciting was about to happen spring football. I mean, that's crazy. You know? And I unless memory is doesn't serve it seems like Herschel Walker jumped to the USFL before he could have jumped to the NFL because of the rules. Do you remember any of that? I think that back then there was a restriction against underclass men coming to the NFL. Yeah. USFL did away with all of that. In fact, I think the USFL was pretty much open to anyone joining their league there were pirate type organization, but you also have to realize the early seasons of the USFL. It was only fifteen years removed from the AFL, and what the AFL did was they took another exciting southern player and brought him to a New York team. And that. Was Joe Nemeth playing for the jets? And so and that was my team and that was a model of an upstart league. They were a fall football league. But an upstart league challenging the establishment and winning and becoming absorbed into the NFL. And then even more recently than that, the ABA which was the the organization that challenged the NBA, and it was more exciting, and they add multicolored balls, and they had three point shooting and many of their team's got absorbed into the NBA. So this idea especially in the early eighties before football became this culturally. Dominant juggernaut I would say back then by the way baseball was the national sport this idea that you couldn't possibly challenge the NFL. It's not true. Maybe in retrospect, it seems true. But a good business plan could have and a lot of people in retrospect, look back and say, in fact would have challenged the NFL establish that USFL as lead to be reckon with. So why didn't the USFL become a part of the NFL? L as as Donald Trump wished that it had. I mean, obviously he wanted to have an NFL team in part of his strategy was to get ownership of the generals. Yes. And I think and this is this is mostly going by the accounts that have been written the ESPN documentary books on the NFL. And maybe it relies on the great man or the infamous man of history little too much. But the answer is Donald Trump. It seems because Donald Trump just like he was a guy from queens who always looked at Manhattan is looking down on him and wanted to be part of the senior circuit in Manhattan. I think looked at the fact that the US was spring football. And he couldn't live with that. He wanted to directly challenge the NFL and a lot of other owners, maybe without the economic wherewithal to oppose him said this was a bad idea there. We have a plan if we stick to this plan we can make money in the future. But it's very important that where spring league and Donald Trump said no Donald Trump says we're going head to head because he couldn't. Be second best. And you also engaged in a court fight simultaneously as he brought the US fell into the fall. And that just ruined it. There was no way to compete head to head with the NFL. But that's just it. Right. I mean, if in fact Trump's idea that the USFL would be absorbed into the NFL like the AFL with what you were just talking about early. If that had happened. It could have been a gold mine for certainly for all the owners, and who knows how many other football fans in some of the smaller cities, for example, this is I guess I wonder why it hasn't happened. And when you consider what's going on right now, you have the XFL you have the alliance of American football. Which is you know, just just getting off the ground. Now. I mean is this basically given the NFL's position in sports and business today is it basically game where you can't really take on the NFL head to head. It's always going to be about trying to. To get a foot into the door with the hope of getting absorbed somehow by by the leviathan. Yes, I do think. So. And I think that there's a very real impractical concern with just in terms of salaries, and this is not true for a couple reasons with the USF L, but just in terms of salaries you can't pay players more than the NFL. Can I suppose none? Neither of these two new leagues can do. So I suppose you could imagine a league founded by billionaires that wouldn't mind burning
