I graduated high school. It's destiny that happened. He he looked in my eyes. I kept the eye contact even though i was distracted by that beautiful dentistry. He's on wow that guy's orthodontist should be in the hall of fame. rj barrett and rj. Barrett's orthodontists in speaking of which. I made a post on twitter this weekend and quoted a cardi b. song when they showed mike shanahan's grill man. You talk about spending a bag on some teeth.

"Shows learn to speak your language around the game of basketball. I like to hear that Yeah we've been doing this show for a long time now at its core. It's just a bunch of buddies that love basketball talking about hoops I like to think we do a pretty good job of balancing. You know actually some knowledge of the game because people watch along and world and the and like conform an opinion about the game but then pairing that with just like the hilarity around the mba. Both on and off the court and You know it's pretty light and it's like again the best compliment we ever get is like oh listening to your show or watching your show. It was just like hanging out with buddies at the bar talking about the game. That's sort of how we do it exactly like you guys do so. That's cool Yeah we you know a couple of things that we've been doing this so long that some terms we've come up with mainly wedgie has sort of entered the basketball lexicon which is the ball getting stuck between the rim and the backboard and they're like other little weird things Not just as because we do daily show and we do a lot of hours talking about hoops. And there's enough people that enjoy the show and it's sorta sticks and i guess we're all online to tweet and all that stuff so it's not the best job in the world i mean it's like every day i wake up with like somebody pays me to do something i was doing anyway. Like watching games and talking about them with my friends. So it's a it's a pretty good job if you can get it. Well now. it's getting better for you. Because in addition to cover in the nba the wnba. The world of top shot the olympics. Summer league you're going deep on the world the fast and furious nice. They club for our new summer. Podcast living your life a quarter mile of a time. I absolutely had not been for forty years on this planet I realized at some point you know. I don't know win over the last year like wow. I've never seen a fast and furious movie. That's that's just straight. I mean it's not like i'm like oh only watching you know the fine arts You know i grew up in stratford ontario. I like the theater. But i also watch crappy movies weird movies and i was like. That's strange. trae is a die hard. Like he's a fast and furious freak. So i'd like this is gonna be a funny podcast series during the summer when there's very little basketball going on that we sit down. I watched them for the first time. And then trays the experts. He watches them along. Jd our producer. No we just talk about them. So yeah we just before jumping on with you here. We just finished The fast and furious tokyo drip third one in the series. I know very polarizing one. So yeah we're making our way through these movies. I gotta say love them. I can see why there You know they got their fence. Just wait till tyree goes to space. You're in for a treat. Those movies are the best j. Skeets joins the show of course from the athletic the no dunks crew getting back to the world of actual basketball isaiah. Thomas go for eighty one going for eighty one in a semi pro game or going for sixty five down at the peach bowl i does. He does he get a shot in the league again because of what he's doing on instagram and on twitter showing up at these these semi pro leagues around the summer all year long. It's possible i mean. I know what jamal crawford was doing that. For a long time. sorta similar things. Those crazy box scores. Just lighten up. These leagues Yeah i think he'll get another. You know another chance. He's not you can't i. Don't have it in front of me. I can't imagine you've that old So sure i mean it is wild to think about his career and like what he was doing on the celtics and the playoff moments. He was having a very difficult time. If i remember correctly with his sister and stuff like that zone injuries. So then just sorta how quickly a guy that's proven to be one of the best in the world and sports. What is how you know how incredibly it can. Just go away from you and You know you bounce around to a couple of teams and just sort of can never Hang onto that job. But oh that's yeah. Let's put it this way. I don't think scoring eighty points in whatever type of game that somebody's filming is going to hurt your chances of a getting another crack on roster so yeah sure. I don't know where it'll be but somebody else. Somebody will need like they'll be breaking case of emergency like get him in here and You know you just whether or not he gets another opportunity once he's there. I hope so. Man i'm ruined from. It he's thirty two years old which means that he might be too young to join the lakers. There is like a height requirement on a ride. There's an age requirement. Carmelo passed with flying colors. Where were you when the news broke. Skeets mellow was coming to lakers. You remember. I think it happened right before one of our daily shows when we were doing our free agency roundups it was one you could see coming from mile away Especially after the westbrook deal especially after there was a bunch of Positions open on the lakers roster. And you're like well we don't go on money left. It's going to be going to a lot of guys like a like a mellow. I called ellington. That was the one that kept saying for weeks old. They're bringing shooter like wayne ellington. He's coming back. Didn't see the reason one comment in that on and dwight but I like it. I know you're a fan of mellow mellow too. So him finally playing with lebron. Which i think is what people have been hoping would happen over the last couple of years at least like just to see it. Yeah it'd be great denigrate Any still decent. I mean like a forty percents three point shooter when he was in with the blazers air. He's gonna get shot on the lakers. This is whether or not they'll be able to stop anybody that's going to be the they..

Here's one. this is the start of this if this actually last for twenty years and how could series one basically the rookie. You know and a lot of these players. Their first moment on top shot.

His balance unison series one moment. I'm like. I love one judas. He's not cool player. Like people want booker. They want back levin. They went down to the mitch.

I know i've been sort of like just starting to dabble in here as it started like. Yeah you just bet on some of these kids like that like jalen. Green in this first game looks amazing. You know who knows what his career could be j. e. skis joins the show from the athletic part of the no dunk. Screw you mentioned some relief yet. A great tweet. That i highlighted here. There's a special place in heaven for people who watch. Nba summer league. What is that place in heaven. Describe it for the rest of i. Yeah a little tongue in cheek. This is like one of the first summer leagues. i have been to in a long time. We used to take our show out there. We were the starters. You missing half court shots annually in front of the summer league crowd. How dare you. How dare you a hit the rim a couple times been on those half court shots It's just like it's so funny. I'm watching it at home. And i'm like i sort of miss it and then i'm enjoying it and on the other hand i'm like oh god thank god. I'm not there. We go to douglas for like thirteen or fourteen days straight. that is that'll kill man And yeah you want to go to the biggest vegas. Everybody knows two three or four days tops But yet two weeks so. I don't miss that art but it is a it's like if you have never gone and you are a basketball sickle. Like i am try and get there with friends at some point again for a couple of days. Don't stay for the whole thing because it is it's just a blast Sort how up. Close you get to a lot of these players and just even other. Nba superstars like just roll into the building. It's not like you're not obviously going up to them to check in their hand and taking photos like ben lyons taking a photo with every celebrity on earth as guy.

"You guys are always throwing ideas. Should we spend twelve thousand dollars on this box of cards because we might get an anthony edwards rookie. Or hey should we put all of your per diem for doing the show on top shots. You know they're all these new business ventures and skeets. You're at the center of a lot of these around basketball. That's happening around the game. Whether it's top shots or treating cars are breaking teaser. All this other stuff. You seem to have your hands in a lot of this. You like to puff daddy of basketball business. Where do you try the eggs. I'm gonna make you go workday. No i do not have my hand but a lot of stuff top yes Tk trae i think you had him on the The show maybe last week A guy that obviously does the show with me tacitly. He got me in the top shot. You know credit goes to him like way back. In february he's younger. He's more in the know. And he's like this thing that's license with the nba and sat's blockchain and it's like all over my head. I'm too old but said looking into it. And i was like classic. I like dumbest thing i've ever heard of. Why would i wanna like quote unquote pay. An owner clipper. I could just watch it online. But then you know you look into a little bit more and starts makes sense. Of course. there is the trading card sort of element to it that most of us did when we were kids. And i was like sorta got does like. Yeah this is fun. I like collecting. I love the idea of collecting it. Nfc because i hate having things in my house that i you Like i'm not like a minimalist by any means. But i have no attachment to like actual thing to just get rid of that. They get rid of it. This is a cool way to collect because just all digital so after moments gotten a lowery's and stuff like that and talk shot back in february. Sorta like mooned took off. And you know it's come back since But i find it a lot of fun and train content out of that where we ripped these tax online and give away a bunch of so you know. It's basketball the end of the day.

"And when you see these greats around each other and you see them sort of let down their guard that often times they may have up with the media during the course of their career It's just it's i can't begin to put it into words for you all And as a voter it it you know. I never really understood the impact that this honor has on these minutes. You'll have to chris. Carter got elected in. And i tell the story that that following fall i would send down to work on a feature on Giovanni bernard and he was friends with chris family growing up and whatnot and so we went down interview chris at his home in florida and during a break in the shooting he takes him back into his his office and on the desk in his office. The photo album from that weekend During the hall of fame ceremonies when he was inducted. And if he talked about it you know as i started to well up in tears started to fall and you just realize what that honor means to them no matter what these men carl accomplished on the field and that sort of thing This is something that's really important to them and means a lot and Again as part of it means that they are part of the greatest club or most exclusive club and professional sports. Jim trotter joins us show. Nfl network of course. The host of the huddle and flow podcast. We all got to see the conference of our own home. These speeches on stage but being on the ground. In kent ohio for the weekend's festivities i would imagine you got to see some things behind the scenes. He encounters in the hotel lobby or offstage That our audience do you think would would appreciate you know they keep these guys on a fairly type schedule During hall of fame weekend. There's so many things for them to do. And actually it's almost like these guys need a vacation when it's over 'cause it it's actually kind of grind pleasant grind but it's grind Where there are so many functions and different things that they have to attend so Now that you know the best part for me It's kinda app to these guys get inducted in when they come back and now they can really just kinda kick back and enjoy the weekend and you may see him on a golf course. You may see him. You know outed dinner or something like that or at one of the parties But that the inductees throwing and you can just have honest conversations about things that maybe they wouldn't open up about when they were playing and Science joy those moments. And you know it's funny. I live out here in san diego and one of the guys who lives out. Here is the money and the steelers hall of fame center and we both liked to golf. So we'll try and get together a couple of times a month and just to be able to spend time with these guys and and to see that humid part of them where you know you take the helmet off and and you learn what they're really about. I wish everyone could do that. Was incredible to see them. Like you said have those human moments be shared on a big stage like that but it's also incredible to see the appreciation for family. And you hear how. Kurt warner was thinking of you. Know giving it all up because it was too much of a toll on his family Walk us through. Sort of just the importance of family to these guys. You spent so much time with hall of famers your hall of fame voter when you hear paint get up there start crying mentioning his dad just family that goes into supporting the football dreams of all these players. Yeah the thing is these guys. Don't make it along. And so when you heard jimmy johnson say that he never had an opportunity to see his sons play youth football and i shouldn't say never had an opportunity but never took the opportunity to see them play football because he said he wanted to out work everyone and to realize later what meant to him and what he had missed out on. You know to hear Tripod talk about being best man that he could For his wife setting that example for his kids to see what you know how a man should treat a woman and his wife all sorts of things. it's incredible one of the other things that that for me. Resonated was when you heard bill cower talking about marty schottenheimer and he talked about patch on heimer marty's wife how she took him and his family under her wing one thing about the schottenheimer family and having covered them is that they truly view football and the teams that they were on as family and i joke with pat that she was sort of the mother hand you know. She oversaw everyone so These families sacrifice a lot for these these players to be where they are. And that's why for instance when drew brees retired. I tweeted out and said you know a person. We should be giving the flowers to As well as drew his wife knowing drew the way that i haven't covered him since he came into the league. You know britney allowed him to be the most dedicated player that he could be. And if you know drew brees he put everything he had into. Being a great player in terms of his time is energy his commitment and win family has young kids Somebody has to be there to be that rock on a day-to-day basis while the husband is out doing what he's doing so to me. Britney brees was so important to what drew was able to accomplish. And it's not just just brittany. You can go down the line with all of these families in terms of what the wives and the kids have given up to allow there has been other father to be successful at a really high level so i thought it was great to To hear these men pay homage to to their families. You know you heard john lynch do it with his wife and I think it's tremendous you know. Because i don't think they get enough credit for what they sacrifice in terms of allowing as men to become the players that they become jim. Trotter from the nfl network huddle flow. Podcast joins the show. Ben lines infrared on the rich eisen show. Let's stick with the family of the new orleans. Saints here the saints. And you wake up to some cryptic tweets from michael thomas on a monday morning. How do you react. I think what the first thing you do is you. Don't overreact look there's a lot of speculation about what's going on with michael thomas and whatnot. All i can tell you. Is that when. I was down at training camp. You know i talked to sean payton about it. Sean loves michael thomas He knows that he's a sensitive individual most individual. But sean feels. He had a special relationship with michael thomas so while we on the outside may overreact to things. Sean is not one of those people. That's going overreact. To to any of that so i can't tell you what michael meant by that only he can't I do know this when you talk to folks He's tremendously hard working He cares about his teammates. But he's gone through some things and you know i'm not gonna get into all of them here but I think what he said is true. We don't have both sides of the story. We only know what was put out there. And i always come back to this to be honest with you. You know when we say we don't have both sides of the story is not that we journalists don't attempt to get both sides of the story and maybe the player at that time is not ready to give his side of the story and often times that happens and that's why the hall of fame is so great because sometimes stories that they wouldn't address during their careers they will speak about when it's all over so i don't know specifically what's happening or what michael mid behind that tweet..

I know there's just way too many stories that you guys can add context to you give platforms to Even with famous people. That just haven't been asked the question you know that. That's another thing. I love about podcasts. In what it allows you to do what you do best to do with. Steve does best and so many of the times. The questions. that you've asked have never been aired. Todd bowles beef. It's coordinated deputy by telling us he was a security guard at mit. I mean come on man. Are you serious exactly you. Now that he'd listen doa guy that everyone thinks is so serious. You know just no nonsense and everything else. And he's sitting up here telling us about being a security guard at a mystical concert or being show for for delta sigma beta sorority. You know on the side while coaching college. Football just we. Sometimes we just like that fun with that because one thing about the black college experience in particular with us being brought up in it is when you're in it it's different from the pwi predominately white institution Their stories that that that just you can relate to that. Just take you back and we try and take our audience back to some of those stories in those fun days. You know so Hearing hearing todd talk about that we're actually thing about putting the other show where we take things from many of the guests that we've talked to about the hbo you experience and putting just together show with their remembrances of all that you know just having it so and that include guys like akwa bolted. Who was in florida state talking about. You know how the pwi's schools take their athletes over to the black colleges to make them the black athlete feel more comfortable about going to a predominantly white school. So you have residence in louisiana. Lsu would take his players over to southern university. I was at howard. Georgetown is basketball program. Back with patrick ewing and all those guys they would always bring their recruits lower to hang out parties in battle and those stories are just fascinating. Yeah just fun well jim. I can't thank you enough for your time. you're a true friend. Your mentor You've been in a credit incredible person in my life again..

"You know it's to be reflected in your copy so make sure it's something that interests you If there's an anecdote or nugget or whatever. And i've tried to times again. When i get in trouble or get stuck i'll try and remind myself a bad Come back to what interests you and ultimately that will relate to or that will resonate with your audience in a dozen while it doesn't but at least you were truly truly yourself. Which makes it easier to write. I think where we get stuck writing. Sometimes again is where we really don't feel anything about a story. We just been assigned something so we gotta go coverage and there's no emotional for lack of a better word investment in it at the time and and you can tell when you read. Someone's copy whether or not they really into a story or not and So as i get older. I try and pick more stories Ashley feel invested in as opposed to just one that i need or have to do as been something unexpected in the form. Format of podcasting for you The one thing. I've always tried to ask our guests with people who have done it for a while is what can you tell us in terms of connecting with an audience Do you go longer. Do you shorter stay. You go topical or do you. Disadva- conversation you know. Sort of all over the place if he will Just things like that and Do you need to go. Big name guests is that more important than say subject matter all those sorts of things and It's funny at times the name the name recognition will drive the numbers cure. But at the same time. I i just feel. It's important to talk about subjects. That matter to you and not just a name a big name and there've been names that we've sort of we kick rock because we book our own gas. Nobody does it for us. We book around guests. I love the show i mean. Do you know what i can tell. Yeah we we do our own research. We do our own interviews. We do our own editing. Everything with the show is done by. Steve myself at thomas warren who also regulate from halle as well all three of his graduated from howard and we do all work ourselves and There have been times where people have tried to pitch assigned guests. And you know if all three of us aren't in agreement that this is someone were interested in or we feel it fits with what we're trying to do than we pass on and sometimes it's kind of awkward to year. You have friends or whoever were asking to get on at a slight just doesn't work right now and once the more popular the show gets the harder. Those those are going to be declined. You know the thing. The thing that's fighting about the shown to be truthful light we when we started. Were like okay. We're gonna do once a week and then we have so many people that we wanted to talk to. All of a sudden became twice a week. Yeah and we just looked at the numbers recently. A couple of weeks ago and we started at september. We did fifty four shows from september to march and. I didn't realize i was a little naive to this podcast game because people think you just sit down and you start. Talking is more involved than that. There's a lot of moving parts and and you know you gotta do. It has to be an upset if you do it for the right reasons..

Brady's they're not playing against the competition. They're playing against themselves. And it's that obsession of every single day. I'm playing against myself. I have to be better where they can't understand. How does anybody else not live like that. Which is which is not want the me. It's an me you know. So you're absolutely right so when you're when you're around greatness when you cover greatness is there an aura of people have talked about when you're around michael jordan. Just the way that is feels like there's a light radiating around people you know. Jfk certain certain people in life. No matter what their craft is they bring this presence to them. Have you felt that presence covering athletes. Oh yeah absolutely there's an energy And part of that is is. We created our own minds as well because we know were around someone great and so for me. I've always said this. You know whether you like someone or not whether you like his team or not me. I'm always fascinated with those who are great at what they do doesn't matter who they are and i'm always interested in the process of what makes him great. And how do they go about being great. So i remember. I did this piece with jerry jones. And after the piece aired there were these people who chiming in about how much they jerry in these different things that he's done and they didn't like in this end the other. I'm like that's all fine as well and good but all i notice that when it comes to business he is one of the best in the world and so i wanna know why that is. I wanna know what motivates him. I wanna know how he views deal versus. Has someone else views a. Do and why. He's willing to take certain risks that others might not be willing to take all sorts of things so the yet all that all that motivates me fascinates made and people like you know. Oh well you you just blindly because you go up in his copter and whatnot. Yes pretty cool. But that's not what what motivated me to do. The peace right motivated me to do the pieces to understand how this one man helped change the face of the nfl. How i don't want to single handedly but you cannot. I don't know that you can pick anyone else in. Say they had as big an impact on the nfl becoming what is today. Or what is what it was when he came into it his vision for marketing his vision for grand nece. All of these things Other owners aren't thinking that way and to the point where he even took on his own league to try and grow the nfl as those sorts of those sorts of people fascinate. Make what was unexpected. About covering jerry. Because like you said you have a preconceived notion you've been covering the nfl at you know..

"We're going to have a conversation we had with our other Buddy Mike math general manager of the Las Vegas Raiders about what kind of challenges east had trying to evaluate his own asterisk well as rosters around the league. With the with the rules, the way they are right now and just good overall catch up with him. I want to give you just a little taste, a little taste of that conversation right here, and you remember you can catch the rest of this on our next episode. Here's a little little bit of our conversation but Mike Mac. You might because it is such a different training camp and Free Season A. Drink. No preseason games how are you guys trying to determine who? The best fifty three, fifty, five guys on the team when you really not able to see them in game like situations and Buck I think that's probably the best question. In today's environment in you know when you start talking about the generic conversation of what do preseason games really mean for NFL teams in. Need four and what we're feeling right now and what all the people around the league that I'm talking with are feeling right now is it's not just about the rookies in the college free agents. It's about some of those first and second year guys that you've tried to develop within your building that haven't had the benefit now of an off season and you're hoping you're about to take a step forward and he can't watch him cover a kickoff for punt. And I've got this thing in my head I, always called go no go syndrome. Some guys go guys when you covered off, there's a certain point where. Inside you're either going. going. Yes. Okay and we want go guys and it's harder to figure out. Go guys. Unless you're willing to replicate that outra practice field and I think one of things that coach Gruden has been great with over the last week is just a conversation with me about what you need to see who do you need to see how can we put them in situation?.

"But now we're also seeing when you talk about politics intermingling with athletics, it seems like every week now president political figures asked a question. About. You. Athletic. This week. I think the president is somebody want US sociologist asked about the NBA players play. So you know that's that's all part of it as well. So everything is intermingling, but of course, everything came. To A head when a couple years ago in the president referred to felt players his sons. Okay. That TOWARDA is that building a wall that tour down a wall in terms of having discussions about politics and? The conversation social conversations. So it's not a one way street here and that again, these are these are conversations. That we hope to have what people lot smarter than us. On flow podcast all that's great. This is again for people that are just hearing this. What this discussion is like trust me when I tell you these are two of the most connected guys, the National Football League. So not only are you gonNa hear the great discussions as you here in right now you're gonNA hear. Yes. Hall of fame guests you're GONNA have as I said, coaches coming on early on you're gonNA hear from them as well. It's going to be it's a conversation I. Think's important conversation. It's a conversation I look forward to hearing. From you guys why we have you I want to get you on some some stuff going on right now, the National Football League on the field of were let me start you Jim when when you when you look around the League right now and where we are from Kovic standpoint from a testing standpoint and the low numbers. Give me like a Jim Trotter optimism reading here like how optimistic are you that? We've we've got a pretty good system in place to be able to work through this season. Dj More optimistic than I was at the start of training camp simply because when you know the league said a baseline number four. Positive tests and they are so far under that number in what that says to me is everyone's taking this seriously and the discipline that the players are showing in terms of not putting themselves out there in situations that could compromise their hell. So from that standpoint, I'm I'm more optimistic than I was at the start of can't. Now I. Mean that we haven't gotten to a point yet where teams are traveling or they're staying in hotels were out about for road game that sort of thing stole the numbers could change but after say I think the League. Association and the players have a tremendous job at this point. Everyone that I was talking to beforehand. Nolan, thought that the numbers would be as low as they are right now. So that's a major testament to how these players coaches and everyone else is taking this seriously. Discipline Right Steve that to me. This is a sport where you win or lose based on how disciplined you are, and I've been kind of overwhelmed honestly with how disciplined everybody has been to keep us where we are at this point..

"The NFL season is 13 days away Willie and Jim Trotter. If NFL media says a few prominent black players are telling him they want to sit out a game. Much like the N ba the WN BA tennis the NHL. Everybody has done the past few days. Which players which team I know doesn't he doesn't say, Can we say Quan Barkley of the New York Giants? Can't say Can't enquire reports of the Cincinnati Bear cast football team? Cancel practice today there, apparently in a team meeting as we speak to discuss and reflect on the issues of inequality and social and justice. About this big 10 coaches air meeting on a call right now a real possibility. The big 10 may reverse course. And play this fall. What CBS Sports is confirming the big 10 is considering a schedule that would start the season Thanksgiving week. What about that March fans? What? So they may be playing in the horseshoe with Carrie Combs and a couple of months you're saying Thanksgiving, the Big 10. The Buckeyes will play it well could play a schedule. It all depends on the university presidents. And the TV and one other thing, Willie. What is that? The green lettuce is salvation. Bingo. That is correct. Where they play six games. Eight game. I don't know. It doesn't say they said it was going to play a schedule schedule. I don't know. I'm gonna state of shock. High school football tonight.

"Pete Pete Buddha. Judge the mayor of south bend, Indiana. His dad was a full fledged Marxist was Marxist. Professor. Who spoke fondly of the communist manifesto? And dedicated a large part of his academic career to the work of Antonio grim. Ski. The Italian communist party founder and also an associate of v I Lenin. Joseph mayor Pete Joseph Buddha, judge died just this past January aged seventy one emigrated to the United States in nineteen seventies from Malta. And Malta happened to be where one of the professors who ran the scam on George popadopoulos was from. Anyway in nineteen eighty. Joseph buddha. Judge joined the university of Notre Dame faculty where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. Which was a cover for teaching Marxism? He supported an updated version of Marxism. That gets rid of some of Marx and Engels most doctrinaire theories, but he was proudly and unapologetically Marxist. Well, this brings us to mayor Pete and has a story here at PJ media by the writer Jim Trotter. Who writes, I was baffled last week by Pete Buddha? Judges definition of freedom, which was elegantly stated what I told you that guy is articulate. His definition of freedom was eloquently stated it was a rousing Lee received. And it was a thousand percent incorrect. You see to mayor Pete? And this is by the way, this is a great. I think this applies to pretty much every leftist out there. To mayor Pete any adversity in life that you face makes you less free. Anything in your way, any obstacle in your way makes you less free. And by obstacle. I mean, we're we're gonna talk adversity is being down thirty points in the fourth quarter or. At a football game or or having a tough professor in college. We're not talking about people denying your rights. We're just talking about competitive adversity and see the route here is competitive in mayor Pete's world. There can't be freedom. If there's competition. Because in competition. There are winners and losers, and that's not fair. We can't have losers. We can't have the stigma of loser that can destroy a person it can really give them self esteem problems. So anything. That constitutes a competitive obstacle. Competitive adversity in his world is a centrally a denial of freedom. So to mayor Pete being free means the government taking care of you and getting rid of this are these adversities these obstacles. And treat her rights when he heard mayor Pete define freedom says sounded exactly like a damn communist. And. Peach world. Everything that you would read about him as homophobic because he's gay and you're not allowed to criticize it just like Obama. You couldn't criticize Obama because he was black or half black and therefore any criticism was logged in as racism Bama had a free pass. And that's what they want with women. And that's what they want with the first Hispanic, and you're not gonna be able to criticize the first woman because it's going to be sexist or misogynist. And you're not going to be able to criticize the first Hispanic because that's going to be whatever it is. And so if somebody if we ever do elect a gay president, you're not going to be allowed to criticize him because that's going to be homophobia. You're not allowed to criticize him. And if you do then you are guilty of incurring mayor Pete's freedom. His definition of freedom is the opposite of the one that our founding fathers used and he grew up learning about a very different group of dead, white guys. He grew up learning about ground ski and Marx and Engels. He didn't grow up learning about Madison Jefferson, Washington. Some people call mayor Pete the white Obama. But that's not actually true. But I'm not going to the actual definition here. Just make sure that you understand that to the left. Any criticism your stomping on their freedom any adversity. They face is an affront to their freedom. That's why they don't wanna hear any dissenting points of view. That's why they don't care to debate. That's not they're not interested in being in the arena of ideas, and even prevailing because all of that. That's that explains. The snowflake mentality. A conservative spokesman being brought in to make a speech on a college campus is an assault on their freedom. And they genuinely scared they're gonna lose their freedom. If conservatism is anywhere near you. Disagree with is an obstacle. It's adversarial, and it's interrupting their freedom. And this is how they think. And it is one of the best ways that I could think of to help you understand what seems to us. Completely irrational. That heavy people disagree with you somehow stomps on your freedom or that having an obstacle facing adversity is. Tantamount to losing your freedom. But if if they look at freedom and equality and government see is there to get rid of all the ad versity government is there to make sure there, isn't any pain. There isn't any racism, bigotry, homophobia, misogyny, or any of this. And of course, that's impossible government can't stamp that stuff out because people are people that are going to be who they are. No matter what. But they're not gonna stop trying to grant government that kind of power to shut up people that they don't want to deal with because it is. Eight denial of freedom for them. And when mayor Pete was going through this south by south that got one of the biggest rounds of applause. Is definition of freedom is nobody disagreeing with you. Nobody having the power to put an obstacle in your way. No adversity in life net is not real folks, you know, most most obstacles in life. I I believe her self-imposed, not all, but I think most of the hardship in life a lot of it is self imposed most of the obstacles most of the challenges that we face a self imposed. You have to overcome yourself you have to overcome your own limitations. But to them. All of that all of that is bad. That's mean, it's unfair. And it not happening. Beanie adversary anything and they did know adversity period. And there shouldn't ever be. Any obstacles that's not a free society? When obstacles in the way, what you stop and think how irrational that is. But I'm telling you that audience at south by south west was swallowing that stuff up faster than mayor Pete could produce it. Okay now to James Comey James Comey was on CNN and hour ago sat down there for an interview with Christiane Amanpour. And he was being queried about the Muller report. What ought to happen to it? What it says what it means and all of that? And as you listened to his answers to her putting gone tests. You will undoubtedly see how pretty much everything I've warned about an predicted here. Has become manifestly obvious with his answers. First question. Director comey. What is your perspective? Do you have confidence that enough of Lee Malo report will come out to satisfy everybody who wants to see it? So this question is so former director Comey, do you think they're still hiding things they were going to see the dirt because we all know there's dirt in aerial know that Trump is corrupt. Are we going this theater and everybody who wants to see it will they be satisfied? Those are reasonable concerns for Democrats to have Bill bar attorney general it deserves the benefit of the doubt la- give him a chance to show us. What he feels like he can't show us. I have to imagine that former director Muller wrote the report with an eye towards it being public someday. So I can't imagine a lot needs to be cut out of it. But let's wait and see the attorney general deserves that chance. Yes. Of course, he deserves a chance until we figure out his with Trump and then after that all of his chances expire. And of course, my good, buddy. Bob Muller wrote the. Report with an eye toward it being public hell's bells? He did you are damn straight. That's why it's not gonna be pretty. Thank can't imagine that a lot needs to be cut out of the league. We could see pretty much pretty much next question from Christiane Amanpour many, including the president of called this for a long time. A witch hunt a hoax. To those of his supporters who might say, look it amounted to a beans. This never should have happened. What is your answer to that? Take a look in the mirror and ask what happened to Bob Muller in the FBI being corrupt and evil and a nest of deep state traders that they reached a conclusion that the president is happy with just don't move on from that your president tried to burn down the department of Justice, but second you should have fired all of us if we didn't investigate what we learned in the summer of two thousand sixteen when we got smoke not fire but smoke that Americans might have assisted the Russian effort. We had to investigate that. And no serious person could think otherwise man, FOX to unpack this. This has got so much of the BS it. First off take a look in the mirror. What happened to Bob modern the FBI being corrupted? So he's saying here, all you people thought Muller had all this. Get Trump aspect and all these anti Trump pro Hillary people there how in the world could we got a report that gives report that no collusion happened. Well, that's not just what we got. We got a report with an inclusion on obstruction. We got a report that is now said to have all kinds of things in it that Trump doesn't want to be seen. This has been so well crafted and done on the part of these there never was any evidence of collusion. And this business of. Your president tried to burn down the department of Justice for second. You have fired all of us that we didn't investigate what we learned in the summer of two thousand sixteen this is so full of it. He has still maintaining that the FBI was minding its own business one day, and then a Trump foreign policy guy. George popadopoulos happened. Atelli ambassador from Australia that the Russians had thirty thousand emails they still maintain their trying to maintain that. That's when this investigation began, and they've got a bunch of fact checkers have backed them up on this. That is no way. True. They're trying to dossier had nothing to do with this commes way of saying the dossier. The dossier was all they had that was it. Nothing more ever. There was never any evidence of collusion. They were trying to implant spies in the Trump campaign. Stephan helper was one of them tried to get hired as a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. Thankfully, didn't get hired that was a stroke of luck. But this investigation began even before the summer of two thousand sixteen but there is still so argument about it. Which is why all of this stuff needs to be declassified. We need to find out exactly who decided to do what? When. There are some people that make the case that this project actually began in two thousand fifteen the project to keep Trump away as far away from possible at of the Oval Office in Washington DC by denying him the nomination and then screwing around with a transition and then trying to mess with his presidency as well. But this idea that they were sitting around one day and all of a sudden news came in that the Russians were colluding. What is this the hacking of the DNC server is that what he's talking about? We don't even know to this day that the DNC server was hacked. They never let the FBI examine it. We don't know that it was hacked. We don't know that it was an inside job, but rush but Russia Podesta the pedestrian emails were because he got hacked via hitting hack. It was a phishing attack. Whatever happened. The DNC server is not why Podesta's emails ended up being public. This is just. That answer. There is so loaded, and I'll tell you virtually everybody in the Washington establishment, most of the drive by media believe this version of things that the investigation began in July when popadopoulos told the Australian investigator that the Russians thirty thousand eight meal. How did popadopoulos no at the FBI hired people to tell him. I've take a break. We'll do it..

He grew up learning about ground ski and Marx and Engels. He didn't grow up learning about Madison Jefferson, Washington. Some people call mayor Pete the white Obama. But that's not actually true. But I I'm not going to give me the actual definition here. Just make sure that you understand that to the left. Any criticism your stomping on their freedom any adversity. They face is an affront to their freedom. That's why they don't want to hear any dissenting points of view. That's why they don't care to debate. That's not they're not interested in being in the arena of ideas, and even prevailing. Because all of that explains. The snowflake mentality. A conservative spokesman being brought in to make a speech on a college campus is an assault on their freedom and their genuinely scared. They're gonna lose their freedom. If conservatism is anywhere near you. Disagree with is an obstacle. It's adversarial, and it's interrupting their freedom. And this is how they think. And it is one of the best ways that I could think of to help you understand what seems to us. Completely irrational. That heaven people disagree with you somehow stomps on your freedom or that having an obstacle alive or facing adversity is. Tantamount to losing your freedom. But if if if they look at freedom and equality and government see is there to get rid of all the adverse city government is there to make sure there, isn't any pain. There isn't any racism, bigotry, homophobia, misogyny, or any of this. And of course, that's impossible government can't stamp that stuff out because people are people that are going to be who they are. No matter what. But they're not gonna stop trying to grant government that kind of power to shut up people that they don't want to deal with because it is. Eight denial of freedom for them. And when mayor Pete was going through this south by south west that got one of the biggest rounds of applause. Is definition of freedom is nobody disagreeing with you. Nobody having the power to put an obstacle in your way. No adversity in life, man. That is not real folks, you know, most most obstacles in life. I may I believe her self-imposed, not all, but I think most of the hardship in life a lot of it is self imposed most of the obstacles most of the challenges that we face a self-imposed. You have to overcome yourself. You have to overcome your own limitations. But to them. All of that all of that is bad. That's mean, it's unfair. And it not happening. Beanie? Adversarial anything and they're on did know adversity period. And there shouldn't ever be. Any obstacles that's not a free society? One obstacles in the way. What you want to stop? And think how irrational that is. But I'm telling you that audience south by south west was swallowing that stuff up faster than mayor beat could produce it. Okay now to James Comey James Comey was on CNN and our ago sat down there for an interview with Christiane Amanpour. And he was being queried about the Muller report. What ought to happen to it? What it says what it means and all of that? And as you listen to his answers to her putting gone thefts. You will undoubtedly see how pretty much everything I've warned about an predicted here. Has become manifestly obvious with his answers. First question. Director comey. What is your perspective? Did you have confidence that enough of Lee Malo report will come out to satisfy everybody who wants to see it? So this question is so former director Comey, do you think they're still hiding things they were going to see the dirt vigils? We all know there's dirt in air. We all know that Trump is corrupt. Are we going to see it and everybody who wants to see it will they be satisfied those are reasonable concerns for Democrats to have. But Bill bar journal deserves the benefit of the doubt la- give him a chance to show us. What he feels like he can't show us. I have to imagine that former director Muller wrote the report with an eye towards it being public someday. So I can't imagine a lot needs to be cut out of it. But let's wait and see the attorney general deserves that chance. Yes. Of course, he deserves a chance until we figure out his with Trump. And then after that all of his chances expire. And of course, my good, buddy. Bob Muller wrote the report with an eye toward it being public hell's bells? He did you are damn straight. That's why it's not gonna be pretty. I can't imagine that a lot needs to be cut out of the league. We could see pretty much pretty much all of it. Next question from Christiane Amanpour many, including the president of called this for a long time. A witch hunt a hoax. To those of his supporters who might say look in amount of delay beans, this never should have happened. What is your answer to that? Take a look in the mirror and ask what happened to Bob Muller in the FBI being corrupt and evil and a nest of deep state traders that they reached a conclusion that the president is happy with just don't move on from that your president tried to burn down the department of Justice, but second you should have fired all of us if we didn't investigate what we learned in the summer of two thousand sixteen when we got smoke not fire but smoke that Americans might have assisted the Russian effort. We had to investigate that. And no serious person could think otherwise man, FOX to unpack this. This has got so much of the BS in it. First off take a look in the mirror. What happened to Bob modern the FBI being corrupted Louisville. So he's saying here, all you people at thought Muller had all this. Get Trump aspect and all these anti Trump pro Hillary people there how in the world could we got a report it gives a report that no collusion happen. Well, that's not just what we got. We got a report with an inclusion on obstruction. We got a report that is now said to have all kinds of things in it that Trump doesn't want to be seen. This has been so well crafted and Don on the part of these there never was any evidence of collusion. And this business of. Your president tried to burn down the department of Justice for second. You have fired all of us that we didn't investigate what we learned in the summer of two thousand sixteen this is so full of it. He has still maintaining that the FBI was minding its own business one day, and then a Trump foreign policy guy. George popadopoulos happened to tell the ambassador from Australia that the Russians had thirty thousand emails they still maintain their trying to maintain that. That's when this investigation began, and they've got a bunch of fact checkers that have backed them up on this. That is no way. True. They're trying to dossier had nothing to do with this commes way of saying the dossier had nothing the dossier was all they had that was it. Nothing more ever. There was never any evidence of collusion. They were trying the implant spies in the Trump campaign. Stephan helper was one of them tried to get hired as a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign. Thankfully, didn't get hired that was a stroke of luck. But this investigation began even before the summer of two thousand sixteen but there is still some argument about it. Which is why all of this stuff needs to be declassified. We need to find out exactly who decided to do what? When. There are some people make the case that this project actually began in two thousand fifteen the project to keep Trump away as far away from possible at of the Oval Office in Washington DC by denying him the nomination and then screwing around with a transition and then try to mess with his presidency as well. But this idea that they were sitting around one day and all of a sudden news came in that the Russians were colluding. What is this the hacking of the DNC server is that what he's talking about?.
