Believe it or not we will get some very soon there might there might just be some here on set. This is called the speciale. Right. It is. In fact, my line people have asked me this question is to save it. I've had four with every meal, which is not entirely true. But I wish it were true. Major Garrett who gave me the keys to this program from me promise that I would ask you the threshold questions at every guest on the takeout gets asked. They are what is your favorite movie? What is the most influential book you've ever read, and if you're on a long car, ride or plane ride what music artist or genre much?

That Boston gangster movie. I love that. Yeah. It's not exactly like romantic, but. I think it's really good. What's the next question? My favorite book. So that's probably the jungle by Upton Sinclair, which I read when I was twelve years old, and I had been a vegetarian for the decades since. More than decades since then it's been it's been twenty six years. It certainly added to the interest in being journalists in turn me off eating needs of muckraking journalism book that helped establish the FDA because of exposing what was happening in meatpacking plant. So obviously Cheech. What about the music long car ride long? But we've got a lot of those in our future. Back home. So it's kind of whatever's on the United States schedule. I have so many books that I am reading at once some of it is just to prepare for face the nation that Sunday 'cause I have to go back and talk about a number of things, including we've Senator Doug Jones on the program. And so he just wrote a book to talk about his interest in civil rights and his life's work. So I'll be reading that. But I also whenever I come to Vietnam chip away at the tome that is bright shining lie the book about Vietnam and the Vietnam war and US involvement here, and the journalists who expose what was actually happening when the US government was telling very different narrative about the success on the ground. So I read like a chapter and a half on my flight here. I'll try to read a few more extent actually recommendation, Ben, Tracy, I favor movie. All right. So mine's a tie. I rarely watch.

"Moderator Margaret Brennan today for an interview to be broadcast on Sunday prior to the Super Bowl Brennan asked the president about house speaker Nancy Pelosi's opposition to his border wall proposal. She doesn't want the costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars because what's happening is when you have a porous border, and when you have drugs pouring in and when you have people dying all over the country because of people like Nancy Pelosi who don't want to give proper border security for political reasons. She's doing a terrible disservice to our country and on the fifteenth.
