Who sit on the throne right now, and he's actually been in conflict at war with them throughout much of the series. He he's also very rueful about how everyone in that very macho very athletic physical world makes fun of him for his height, and he has a little bit where he talks about what it's like to have people crack jokes about your height when you're a little person in that world, and we have a clip.

"It was quite a show, I guess you and I were probably two of the five people who are watching it because it sounds like the ratings not so great for the this year. However, the thing that made me kind of upset is that the Americans didn't win. Game of thrones, but I, this. Well, I think I thought about this a fair amount because I had had talk about the Emmys a bit, and you know my conclusion is that I think the the professionals who make television who are part of the TV academy, look at what game of thrones achieves every time it comes out of the gate. They are doing not the equivalent of a blockbuster movie. They're doing the equivalent of like four or five, blockbuster movies every season when they do that show the level of affects the level of costuming the level of filming in remote locations. I think the professionals at work in the TV academy, see what an achievement it is to pull off season game of thrones every year and as good as the Americans was. It is not that you know, it's hard to compare the two, but it seems like the TV kademi loves game of thrones. I mean every year they've been nominated for best drama, they've won.

This is here and now President Trump's supporters are lining up today to defend him against a damaging book from Washington Post reporter, Bob Woodward, and a senior administration officials anonymous, New York Times op Ed, calling Trump or Radic a moral and detrimental to the Republic. Here's Republican Lindsey, Graham on Capitol Hill this morning. I think what's happening here is a new line of attack. That is the best evidence yet that there's no collusion. This to me is a signal that if there's there's nothing there with Russia in terms of president working with the Russians during his campaign, the next line of attack is a man is on fit for office. He's crazy. Lindsey, Graham are Friday roundtable joins us right now. Jose Diaz Balart is news anchor at Telemundo and NBC. Hello Jose? Hi. How are you? Good.

What they did this week, we learned from former and current administration. Insiders, that senior members of the Trump team do not respect him. They think he's dangerous and routinely work around what they call his whims. How serious Jose moment is this for the president and for his power. I don't recall this ever happening since I've been alive that we see someone from within an administration come out and criticize that the chief executive in this way. It's it's no doubt going to, you know, continue on the narrative that the president is erotic. As you said that the some of the things Radic immoral and. You know, sometimes just crazy..
