Multiple Voting Rounds Are Debate and Accountability
"Has anybody asked Mitch McConnell? Why did you scan there before the American people and promise that with the house in Republican majority, the days of the Democrats running over us with this crazy spending are over? And then you went and passed it. Is anybody holding him accountable? It's Mitch McConnell, who ought to be on the hot seat, not Kevin McCarthy. Instead, there's Mitch McConnell up there yesterday, giving his speech all look how great I am. Look how long I'm. Disgusted. And I'm gonna tell you, I'm enjoying it. I'm enjoying this. I think it's important. You know what it is? It's called democracy. It's called having a real debate. It's not one stupid speech with one politician droning on in an empty chamber that nobody's paying attention to that you're lucky to see on C-SPAN. It is debate, it is vigorous debate, it's holding establishment Republicans to some accountability it is saying as chip Roy said today on Mark Davis's show in Dallas, we want some heft on the rules committee. We want some hardliners who are going to hold the line against this out of control spending. We want accountability for the failed Republican leadership.
Are You Enjoy the Chaos Among Republicans?
"Well, if you're typical listener or viewer to conservative media, you tune in and you're expecting me to go DEFCON one on the 20 Republicans who are breaking some eggs right now on Capitol Hill, you're not going to get that for me. I've been giving this a lot of thought and I've been absorbing all of it and I'm listening to a lot of smart people and I have a hunch, I'm not the only person in the country right now who's fairly enjoying the chaos on Capitol Hill. I listened to an interview this morning that my friend Mark Davis conducted with chip Roy from Texas. And it makes so much sense why chip Roy is objecting to Kevin McCarthy. And I have to tell you that the hysterics from my friends and colleagues in broadcasting who are just losing their minds over these 20 Republicans is very, very intriguing to me.
Mark Davis: Elon Musk Is Letting the Libs Win by Stepping Down
"I was talking to my pal Mark Davis first thing this morning, Mark, house is terrible, this is awful. This is the he let the libs win and first of all, he's still owns Twitter. I mean, he's stepping down as the head of Twitter. I don't know what that means, but isn't it kind of a beautiful thing to see him respect the will of the people who make up the Twitter community? Isn't that what Twitter is supposed to be all about? That's what he said. It was supposed to be all about when he put a poll up and said, should Trump come back? And Twitter users voted yes. He put Trump back. When he put a poll up saying, should I reinstate the journalist? That I suspended, or we suspended for doxing me and putting my family in harm's way and people said, yeah, put them back, he put them back. So now he's got a poll question. Should I step down as the head of Twitter and Twitter users overwhelmingly said, yes, I expect he will. Is that a bad thing? I think it's kind of, I mean, I'm disappointed. I've enjoyed Twitter lately. It seems freer. It seems more like what it should be. But evidently, he's just deciding to let people decide his fate?
Team Gallagher Predicts Pres. Trump's Big Announcement
"Derek klingel, who's been how long have you been producing the show now? How long has it been, Derek? It's been a little over two years, April of 2020 was when I started officially. And now's when you're supposed to say it's the happiest two years of your life. And you've got the, you got the ulcers to prove it. You're doing a great job. You're a terrific producer and we poached you from the Joe Piscopo show. You were interning and helping out in New York with piscopo. You're on Long Island. Working remotely and I want to you're a solid Trump supporter. Tonight, 9 o'clock is the big announcement Eastern Time. What does Derek klingel producer of the Mike Gallagher show think about president Trump's expected announcement? I think that this announcement is probably going to be him running for 2024. And it's going to force a lot of soul searching within the Republican Party. And I think that ultimately the America first policies and agenda is going to win over a big chunk of America because not only the enthusiasm that a lot of people have for that. But like you say, the record of accomplishments that Donald Trump has already achieved. Some of which were border security, tax cuts for the middle class, record low unemployment for every demographic of Americans, even the peace deals we saw under Trump. So if he does announce, I would be happy to support him, but I also agree with you and Mark Davis that we should let the game come to us and sort of see what happens and be humble about it.
What Will Donald Trump's Announcement Be Next Week?
"Whole lot of people are jumping on the dump Trump bandwagon. Listen, my pal Mark Davis has a great philosophy. Let the game come to us. They're going to be decisions that Ron DeSantis is going to make and that Donald Trump is going to make. He's supposedly going to make an announcement next week at Mar-a-Lago. Have no idea what that announcement is going to be. No idea. We'll see. And when the time comes, where we have to make a choice, we'll make a choice. It's not now. You can speculate all you want. And if you're down in the dumps because it wasn't a big huge Republican blowout, okay? I appreciate that. Dust yourself off, hold your head up and never give up.
Is Winning the Only Thing That Matters?
"A lot of and you know I had an interesting argument with not an argument, but a friendly disagreement with my pal Mark Davis. Because Mark keeps saying, I'd vote for a disembodied head if it was a Republican over any Democrat. While I get the spirit of that, I gently reminded him, well, you're saying that winning is the only thing that matters. If winning is the only thing that matters, you would wish that roe V wade wasn't overturned. Because roe V wade drove a lot of hysterical people to the polls. No question about it. I knew the day that roe V wade was announced. When the dob's decision was handed down, I knew that would hurt us politically. You know how many, you know how many babies have been brought into the world since that decision? You know how many lives that have been saved? The mainstream media has pointed out thousands. So let me ask you a question. Would you trade that? Would you trade that away? Would you say roe V wade shouldn't have been overturned so that we could win the big have the big red wave? And when I pointed out to mark, mark said, ah, I see what you mean. He almost said, I see what you did there. Because what I did there is point out you wouldn't just vote for a disembodied head. No, no self respecting person would vote and say winning is the only thing that matters when human life is on the line. How any self respecting person could vote for John fetterman? It's something I'll never understand. I guess they use the Mark Davis rule of voting for a disembodied head, because frankly, obviously a lot of people in Pennsylvania practically did.
Mike Gallagher Confirms He Has COVID Again
"Here's a text message on the MyPillow text line. Mike, those COVID tests are completely unreliable. Try again. You don't know me. How many do you think I've taken? Don't you know me by now? Tried four. All four of them with a bright red. Oh, I got it. Believe me, Phoenix. You're not talking to some ordinary run of the bill hypochondriac. I take it to a whole new level. Eric, do you have the organ music? We got to get Mark Davis's Gregorian chance. Mark was playing because that's me. I told my kids last night. All right, kids. It's been nice knowing you have got COVID again. I'm going to the light, we got the organ music playing, the Gregorian chants. Like the candles, nah, I'm not going to miss them. I'm not going to miss a minute of the Mike Gallagher show. I mean, for crying out loud, even if they wanted to give me an award in Denmark, I wouldn't miss a day this week or next. It's the election. One of the biggest elections we've ever seen. I kid. I kid my friend Dennis, who is going to be off for a couple of days in Denmark, receiving a well deserved award. But for me, Matt, I'm not going anywhere right here.
Larry O'Connor: A Certain Group Should Not Vote a Certain Way
"You know, our pal Mark Davis and Dallas pointed something out this morning that was so important. He was talking about the voter disconnect between where people were their hearts are where they live. Their ideological beliefs and how they vote. He said Hispanic Americans don't favor open borders. Hispanic Americans don't aren't pro abortion, and yet many Hispanic Americans in Texas, for example, will say, oh, I'm going to vote for beto. I'm going to vote for beto o'rourke. And why do you suppose that is Larry? Why are there so many groups of people, so many segments of the population that seem to continually vote against their own self interest? You know, it's funny. You hear the same thing sometimes from Democrats to remember that book, what's the matter with Kansas? Do you remember when they said, why did kansans keep voting against they keep voting Republican when Republicans are actually harming them? So I don't know. I always hesitate to think that a certain group should vote a certain way because of where they live or certainly the color of their skin. I think Democrats are much better at that than I am. I would say that almost all of the Hispanic Americans, Latin Americans that I've ever met in my lifetime, they have a deeply held Christian beliefs. They're either Roman Catholic or there's a huge growing number of evangelical Christians and Baptists who are Latino American and I think when they look at their faith and their principles and what they care most about and then they see how radical the Democratic Party is going. They don't even lie anymore. They can't pretend I want abortion to be safe legal and rare. No, they want taxpayer money to go to abortions up until the moment of birth. And then the transgender ideology, it couldn't be further away from the strong family, Christian beliefs that most Hispanic voters hold. So I think that there's a disconnect there and they're starting to come around on it.
Joe Biden Gave the Middle Finger to Ron DeSantis & Florida
"Why are people not outraged at this? I start every morning talking to a fellow talk show host Mark Davis and Mark even seen my own, you know, yeah, I know, I know what you mean. He didn't seem as upset about it as I am. Nobody does. Tracey comes in here and says, could it be because it technically hit Puerto Rico first? What? The geographical path of a hurricane? Determines the presidential visit? This is insane. This guy is the worst president of my lifetime. I have never lived through a president as lousy as this one. And whether you agree with his politics or disagree whether you're a registered Republican or a Democrat and I get it, a lot of floridians are probably, hey, we don't want him here anyway, but do you not see how he's giving Florida and probably Ron DeSantis? The middle finger? That's what he's doing. This is an attack. This is an insult. To the people of Florida enter the governor. That's all this is about. And I think everybody knows it.
Mainstream Media Lets up on North Dakota Man for His Political Crime
"At the example of the guy charged with murdering an 18 year old in North Dakota. Jesse watters did a great monologue yesterday pointing out the media looking the other way and yes, the media, the mainstream media has looked the other way. They haven't made a big deal over the man who was charged and released after running over an 18 year old that the man driving the car described as a Republican extremist. Does that sound familiar? The phrase Republican extremist? Because we've been hearing that phrase a lot lately. An awful lot. Coming from the president on down. And there I am watching TV yesterday, turning on the TV. There's my friend and colleague you Hewitt. Well, DUI. I don't know that it was a political attack. Mark Davis this morning in Dallas. You know, let's let the facts emerge because we want to make sure that we sort of give the guy the benefit of the doubt. Are you kidding? The police report was very specific. Over what the guy shed. But now suddenly we don't want to believe what the guy, the suspect himself, said? Because we don't want to offend people in accusing somebody of a political crime? A political attack? Why would a Republican, why would a conservative? Why would anybody be nervous about expecting accountability for a man who shed, he committed a political crime?
WSJ on the Mar-a-Lago Affidavit: 'Is That All There Is?'
"The Wall Street Journal does an analysis. Is that all there is? Is this really about a documents dispute? And I got into a back and forth with my pal Mark Davis in Dallas because Mark told a Trump hating caller, well, I have to admit it's probably not the greatest thing for a president to take documents from The White House that are classified into his residence in Florida. That's what they want. And I listen to Mark say that this morning, as I'm driving into work and I'm like, no, Mark, no, no, don't give them that. That's what they're looking for. That's what they're hoping for. That's what they're desperately hoping people will do. That's what they're desperately hoping people will do that people of good faith like Mark will finally throw in the towel. And cry uncle, okay, yeah, he shouldn't run because it's not the greatest thing for a president. We got a woman that had a server in her bidet in her bathroom in chappaqua, New York. We've got an FBI that colluded with Facebook to help Biden and hurt Trump right before the election. We're living in a place and a time where big pharma waited 6 days after the election. To announce the vaccines for COVID.
Mark Davis: Never-Trumpers Believe They're Mini Abraham Lincolns
"My friend Mark Davis pointed something out this morning that really got me thinking about how mean spirited these people are. They believe that they're smarter than everybody else. They've convinced themselves that half the country has been fooled and conned by one man that we're so stupid that we fell for Donald Trump's big lie. We're all election deniers. We're all insurrectionists. We're all, we're all imbeciles. Who got fooled by one man? And they're the ones to lead us out of the wilderness. Liz Cheney, all the never trumpers, you can go down the list, you know who they all are, the usual suspects, they're so arrogant that they have convinced themselves that they are all little mini Abe lincolns.
Mark Davis: The Left Likes to Marginalize Human Life
"Mark Davis made a great comparison this morning in Dallas. He said, the left likes to marginalize human life when it comes to the abortion debate, just like they did, just like Democrats did and, well, everybody did with slavery, but mostly Democrats. I mean, it has a lot of history points out, Jim Crow, slavery, the Democrat party construct. Republican president freed the slaves. But America dehumanized slaves. They were less than human. That's what they do with abortion. These babies are less than human. They don't really have the full rights of the baby's mother. And I, you know, I'm really surprised by this. I didn't realize that this was even going to be a close call in Kansas. It's been called a shocker, and here's the tough part about it. When you are sort of pitting political fortune against the preservation of human life, against the saving the rescuing of thousands, if not millions of unborn babies.
Politico: Somehow, Someway, Joe Biden Is Back in the Game
"I saw a Politico last night somehow some way Joe Biden is back in the game. He's suddenly on the verge of a turnaround. White House thinks it could salvage his summer and alter the trajectory of his presidency. All because Joe Manchin caved, you know, I held out hope for Joe Manchin by pal Mark Davis in Dallas, said, no, don't do it. Don't do it. I'll believe it when I see it. Democrats going to Democrat. And Joe Manchin betrayed Mitch McConnell, betrayed his constituents. You know that Joe Manchin is on board now with a coal tax, you heard that correct. A West Virginia senator wants to tax the coal industry. Tax increases. Because, you know, it makes sense to have a tax increase during a recession.
Mark Davis: Did Hutchinson's False Testimony Lead to Clark Search Warrant?
Is There Trump Fatigue Among Republicans?
"Hi, Mike. I think they'll do the October surprise and I think Don Junior should be waiting in the wings to run. Well, you know, but can I say this about waiting in the wings? So I had this argument the other day. I played it on the air with Mark Davis. Mark Davis is saying there is Trump fatigue among Republicans. That's this narrative that is starting to get some steam. I don't believe it. I don't agree with it. I talked to callers every day who don't have absolutely zero Trump fatigue, in fact, I think people are more enthusiastic about Trump than ever before. But ultimately, here's what's going to happen. Ron DeSantis is getting teed up to be in a perfect place for people like my friend Mark who think that Ron DeSantis is the refined Trump. And I'm not even going to debate that. Because I do believe that Ron DeSantis is not only the best governor in America. But is going to have an incredibly effective national career ahead of him. Post Florida gubernatorial politics. So who do the Democrats have waiting in the wings? Per se.
Remember, Populism Is Not Conservatism
"And I don't dispute that he made some mistakes. I started my day with a knock down drag out with my pal Mark Davis in Dallas because Mark said, wow, we dodged a bullet. Why? I still can't hit the high notes. That's called doing a musical nonstop for three weeks and screeching and blowing out your voice. Yeah, mark's very excited that Madison Cawthorn lost. And I sort of tried with love and respect to get Mac marked to back off. We Republicans never know how to act. Unified. And Mark claims that it was all about finding the most conservative representative. Possible. And I get it. I appreciate that. But there is this, there is a populism that the establishment types can't stand. That's why they hate Trump so much. It has to do with the populist streak of trumpism. Populism is not conservatism. And some of us are having a more difficult time than others in reconciling the two.

"And then cast some hope, give a picture where this could go. When you say lead with a vision of the future, you can't just tell somebody don't worry, that's like the old don't think of pink elephants, right? You have to give them something else to focus on. And say we will get through this, we'll be on the other side. And here's what it could look like if we do this right. What else do you guys see? What else could be great about this? If we do it right right now, and get a little pride, you go, you realize most everybody else out there is freaking out. We're the only ones with our stuff together. We are going to come out looking like freaking geniuses if we execute right now in this moment. So let's get into it. Let's do this and be proud of who we are and what we create in crisis. It's your moment. People, nobody celebrates the couch, the couch potato. There's no monuments made for the guy who just sat and watched TV. In crisis, it's your moment. It's love it, embrace it. And I think that's what really helps people. Wow. I mean, fire nation, when you hear somebody's passion in their voice like this, you know, there's a reason why Mark Davis is on this call today talking about how he's helping Ukraine's most vulnerable in wartime. And something that I'm really excited about. We're going to talk about next are stories. But you're going to have to wait until we get back from thinking our sponsors. Certain people just make my life so much easier. I don't know what I do without them. Like my virtual team and Kate, it's like if you own a growing business and need to hire zip recruiter makes hiring so much easier because they do the work for you..

"Here in DFW. And final text on the MyPillow text line at 806 5 5 mic, which is again, you should get one of these Mark. I'm telling you. Not days I like today. Especially days like today. You want to know why? Because here's the last one from Dallas. Tell Mark Davis that we still love him unequivocal. God, like that was conditional? I never actually doubted that, but thank you. They love you. They love you. And I'm telling you, you asked your audience. I challenge you. Do this for me since you owe me penance for telling me I was a 1000% wrong yesterday that Roberts would issue a statement and he did it out 49 minutes after you said he wouldn't. Ask your audience if they'd like the ability to text you during the show. You want to pull back the curtain a little more. Yes. I think it's underway, yes. But where people can, here's the weird thing. By what magic did you set up where people text you at the same phone number that you're calling number is? Well, we'll talk. I'll show you how to do it. It's a little service that we use and it's easy. The same number, same calling. Absolutely have to be the case. And that would be a thing that would be great. It's fantastic. Yeah, you get the same number. You just say call or text me. And then you look up and PS if there's a jerk. It's a little keystroke. Block forever. That's the best part. Those are some of my favorite people though. Does it make sense? Knowing you, you'll call them back. That's true. You just told me that I reserved. Wacky is there me. You want to be on the radio for about 5 minutes. That's all right. That's how I roll. Happy Wednesday. Happy Wednesday. And real quick, okay, 30 seconds. Ready? Because it's may the fourth be with you, get it, ha ha ha. Get it? Yes, all that's right. On the scale where zero is, I hate it. I'm repelled by it. And ten is it changed my life forever, where are you on the Star Wars fanboy scale? The one and only the original ten, but then after that I lost interest. But the first one, I remember as a kid. Oh, no, I know I get it. I guess it is. I love the first one, but I didn't all the sequels. I mean, my gosh, there's been 23 of them, I think. How many Star Wars movies were there? They got TV shows Mandalorian and remind me to tell you tomorrow about the friend of mine who almost became a principal featured role in the latest Star Wars movie would have changed his life. He lost out at the last minute. I will do that. That's Mike. He's there in ten on 6.

Lance Bass is 42. From it's gonna be amazing. Yes, it is in sync and Lance Bass, special place in my heart because he wanted to go to space. He did cosmonaut training and real cosmonaut training and then the funding dried up and Lance Bass did not get to go to space. So 25 years ago. I thought maybe you'd play, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

But you know what's fascinating about you digging your heels in yesterday morning and I thought, uh oh. Uh oh, let's listen here. Let's take a little trip down memory lane. This is phony as a $3 Bill Mike. I mean, it's not real. You have a very unique theory and it's one that's going to take a one sentence statement by John Roberts to disprove or prove. If there's no denial, if there's no denial from the court, the theory is wrong. The brakes are skipping. I know you're excited. Oh, I did. Denial from John Roberts? What universe? In what universe do Supreme Court Justices go skittering around town, firing off hot takes? He's done. He's done it. Evidently, this universe evidently the universe were in today. Now, I got to give you credit though. You sold it. You were so sure. No one could ever accuse Mark Davis of suffering from a lack of context. I go all in.

And we've indicated in an hour. By the way, some people go like, if you go purge their own tweets, I left them up there because I stand by the basis for that skepticism, and I basically said, I'll believe it when I see it. So I saw it. So lord knows I saw it. If you help me say you saw it. So what are we to make of this? So there is a leaker. What I was never let you captain a ship because I could just hear it now.

I can land this hip and burg right over here in New Jersey. It will not hit the antenna. I promise we can land this dirigible. There will be no problems ladies and gentlemen.

Supreme Court Confirms Leaked Abortion Draft Is Authentic
"Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show, while the Supreme Court has issued a response to the report of this draft opinion, chief justice John Roberts strongly condemning the leak to the press in a brief message, the court acknowledged that the leaked document is real. So so much for my buddy Mark Davis theory that it was fake. By but noting that it is just a draft, the court has not issued a final decision on the matter. The court said, just quote, justices circulate draft opinions internally as a routine and essential part of the court's confidential deliberative work, although the document described in yesterday's reports is authentic. It does not represent a decision by the court or the final position of any member on the issues in the case. Roberts also issued a statement, he announced that he has called upon the marshal of the court to investigate the situation and find the source who leaked the document to Politico. Justice Roberts also spoke out against the notion that the leak could succeed as a political maneuver to influence the court. Roberts said to the extent this betrayal of the confidences of the court was intended to undermine the integrity of our operations, it will not succeed the work of the court will not be affected in any

"Let's talk about ESG. Anyway, but I got through it. It was a great and I kept talking about I tied in the Disney controversy here in Florida because woke companies are paying a price and just ask Disney just ask the shareholders of Disney who can't be very happy about what's going on and more on that in just a moment. Anyway, the guy who was one of the noble people putting it all together, got the panel together. We had a Brigadier general from NATO. I mean, it was a cool panel. His name is Mark. And Mark was so excited, all he wanted to tell me about was his brother Dennis in Victoria British Columbia who lives for the Eminem experience he lives for Mike and Mark at 5 30 in the morning. What's that specific time? It's 5 40 right now. Now, here's what fury infuriates me and you'll love this. I don't think the guy even knew I have a radiation. He just cared about the M and M experience. He never misses. He told me, and you got to hear this. He said, I set the clock. My brother sets his clock, he and his wife, they got to listen to Mark Davis and my Gallagher every morning that sets their day. It says they're what is it about this segment that's so magical. Victoria British Columbia Mark? I don't know, man. I just think we're just we're just being us and we're just I guess. But slinging hot topics and having a good time. But how does that even work? How did he find us? Oh, listen, no, I've long since. Okay, you have an actual national show. It's not mysterious. But you're not here's the thing. But here's the thing. Mister Internet does us a favor in a couple of ways. When you were talking about waking up at 5 41 in the morning to be listening right now, I almost don't want to tell them about the podcast where people can hear this magic anytime that they wish later in the day. If they want to, by just going to 6 60 a.m., the answer dot com, click in podcasts. But people do that. They do whatever they want. Now, this is why I'm sitting here in DFW. I get calls from all over the country. And even in the occasional other country, all the dang time. And social media. I mean, I don't know. And I don't want to sell you short, you've got a long history of national broadcast. I know there's Mark Davis fans all over the world. I'm doing great good prager today. Yeah, and you've done it. You see radio network filler for rush. I mean, so people know you and it was just and I'm not kidding you. I'm not just saying this to blow smoke in your ear. This guy barely knew I had a radio show. He just knew about the Eminem experience of how much they love it and so cool. So to Dennis, and listen, if he's listening right now, you text me and tell me how you found us on the MyPillow text line 806 5 5 6 four 5 three because I think I'm making progress incidentally in talking my buddy Mark into getting a text line for himself. I've held this. I've held this at arm's length like do I mean my brain is already about to explode in any given moment during a given segment? Do I need even additional input from the public? I have phone lines. We got Twitter. We got this. We got that. But every day, there's just some magical moment where you say, hey, somebody just texted the show as like, why shouldn't I allow? Why shouldn't I facilitate people being able to do that here in our little kingdom? So it's like an instant it's like an instant focus group and I think right now I'm looking up at it and I'm not kidding you here. I've got it all, they've got it all set up here in the studios at food for the poor and here's Dallas. I do the same thing. I can not miss the mark and Mike segment and I'm ticked off when one of you goes on vacation. Here's another one. We got a coordinate. Here's another one. The magic of iHeartRadio. So we got all I heart and all these different states that so listen, but Dennis in Victoria British Columbia if you are awake or if your wife is awake, text me and tell me how you found us because that is so cool.

"This may not be one of them. Miss dates back to April 4th, a police officer pulled over a vehicle for improper registration. The officers apparently been with the department for 7 years. Mister Liu was driving, gets out to talk to the officer and maybe that's one of the best ideas. Stay in the car unless you're instructed otherwise. And the videos include about two minutes and 40 seconds of interaction starts out with the officer walking toward the car, mister Leo yasin exiting the vehicle is instructed by the officer to get back in the car, dude. I'm stopping you. Do you have a license? Do you have a license in mister violet replies for what? So just please everybody ride with me here. And sir questions from the cops obey all the Mark. Don't stop there. This guy physically fought with the office. Absolutely true. Now, now you got to make that part of the story because it is part of the story. You're right. Of course, answer a police officer, you got to communicate with him, but for God's sakes don't start fighting with him. He's got the gun. He's got the taser. He's got the handcuffs. He's got the badge. You're going to physically roll around on the ground with a cop. Now, now, but here's the problem. And this is where I'm having a real crisis. And I need my pal Mark Davis to walk me through this and get me off the ledge. My mother voice in the back of my head says, yes, we know you shouldn't fight with a cop. But when you, but it shouldn't end there. I don't know if there's extenuating circumstances. This guy was apparently an immigrant from Guyana. There was perhaps a language barrier. His family says he was afraid he didn't understand. He didn't get it. So the question then becomes, for those of us who like to say, and I do, don't fight with cops. Yep, period. Don't fight with. If that guy hadn't fought with that police officer, he'd be alive. Of course, of course he would. Okay, but does that exonerate the police officer? Any responsible, I hate to say this, and I'm ashamed of saying this as the pro police guy that I am. Don't be. There has to be a better way. Exactly right. Because when I got out and putting a bullet in the guys back at the guy's head, probably isn't the only way. Let us stipulate. Don't fight with cops. Let us stipulate. Hey, everybody. Don't start, don't start, fights with cops. However, some people are going to and then the question becomes in what situation are the cops entitled to use deadly force, which by the way, they're totally entitled to do in many situations when their life is celebrity. You bet. And was his life in jeopardy. Now, the argument's going to be that he was grabbing for his taser and you hear the officer on the video, which was further complicates this story. The get your hand off the taser. Get off the taser. The police officer, I think, has a reasonable fear that if this guy gets the control of the taser and this has happened to police officers, in this country, they've been tased and then they've been shot and killed with their own weapon. That's right. So that can happen. And that cop has got to make a split second decision. This guy is fighting me. He is trying to take my taser. He's going to kill me. I'm going to have to kill him first. I guess, I mean, I don't know, Mark. Is it that simple? Well, it almost never is, especially in this is where you and I let us deliver a lesson to ourselves. We get the luxury of sitting in our comfortable studios. Going through the zapruder film, frame by frame. The officer did not get that comfort. He's fighting for his life. Moment by moment in real time..

"To bits and I'm also with this South Carolina congressman I heard yesterday who said, how long are we going to let this last? How far do we let Putin go? I just took a call from just a good hearted guy who said, we could stop this and we have a moral responsibility to stop this. And then I said, yeah, how about that whole World War three thing? And when I say scoffed, I don't mean scoffed at me. He said, I think that's a bluff. I think this is Putin. Owning the world with the bullying of the threat of a nuclear retaliation when he still has a little bit of a brain stem and knows that if we punch him, if we punch him in the nose, if America or NATO, bloodies his nose over Ukraine, he's not going to launch a nuclear strike on Warsaw or Indianapolis because he doesn't want his own country to be liquified. But then again, but if he's got nothing to lose, exactly. That's where we are. Well, here we go. If I'm a little bleary eyed besides the rocks, I'm memorizing my lines from a funny thing happened on the way to the forum. I got my script last yesterday. I got it all printed out and bound. I forget how funny that I forgot how funny this show is. This is a slapstick. Should I or should I not go back and watch Zero Mostel in the movie from 1960s? The movie's kind of clunky. That's one of those things where they tried to make a movie out of a great theatrical production. What lyric stage is expected to do with this is going to be pretty profound.

"Good morning. The earth says hello 7 year old Mike Gallagher. Player on the radio, the greatness of Oliver and good morning star shine. You know the origin of this? No, but I know he had a bigger hit than that. I'm trying to think of what it was. Well, yeah, this was pretty big. No, no, he had a real gene. There you go. Now, both of those have in common. Hello, it's your Wheelhouse. They both come from pretty big musicals. Good morning star shine was from hair. And gene was from the prime of miss Jean brodie. There you go. Oliver Oliver born William Oliver swafford would have been like 77 today. More useless information. It's free. It's free. These are purposes we're giving you. We're giving you gems, ladies and gentlemen. Here you go. Oliver, what has never his name would have been? He was just known as Oliver on the record, but his birth name, there was William Oliver swafford. And hey, he had two busy born. He was born Wilkesboro, North Carolina. How do you know that? I was being sarcastic. I know this stuff, but I can't find my car keys. I could give you the 12 guys that walked on the moon in order, but I can't find my wallet. You're like when you're like a box of those trivial pursuit cards. That's exercise. And I'm the question. Does that still exist? Does trivial pursuit still exist or is or do people cheat with their phones under the table and know the answer to everything? I love me some trivial pursuit. So you're the answer side of the card. I'm the question side of the card. And here's my question for Mark Davis on this two, two, two, two, two, two, two, two. Why should we care about Russia's problems with Ukraine? That's okay. Okay. That is the question of the day. So here's 60 seconds for me and I'll give it right back to you. Because you admitted to me and I think you have a lot of company that you sense that this Ukraine story, there are a lot of people who want this to be front of mind for you, and it's just not. Now, would we like there to be no invasion? Yes. Is it a bummer this morning? Did Putin has rolled some tanks into those eastern states of Ukraine? Yes. Do we want to drop of American blood drop to prevent this? No. Will sanctions work? We don't know. So here's the question I'm asking everybody, and I'm asking you in return, okay, here's the price of our, I don't want to say nonchalance because I don't mean that you're dismissive or nonchalant. It's just that if this is not a no pun intended, a nuclear strength of issue for you, this is just in there somewhere of stuff to care about. That means here's my big finish that if Putin just makes Ukraine part of Russia again, too bad..

"Right. Hey, honey. Want to join me for a spinach wrap. My Denise used to have a we used to have a joke among ourselves. If you're crazy, do you know it? And that's a thing about that ponder that if you're crazy, do you know you're crazy? Part of the definition of being crazy is you may be blind to the fact that you are in fact crazy. Correct. But I know I am as evidenced by this morning. Luggage is not crazy. I lugging my pillow mattress topper in this giant American tourist or cheap suitcase I bought last night over at the Walmart. You're bringing a mattress topper I am a cruise. I am, because now again, back to Denise's rule. If at least I know I'm crazy. So I've got my little carry on. I've got my gigantic American tourister, my pillow mattress topper. In the you're in the Robin Leach suite on this ship. Don't you trust their mattresses? Is this for comfort? Or is this because you're schmutz left by prior passengers? No, no, it's the comfort. I've done a lot of cruises. Listen, cruise ship rooms are nice, but the beds ain't exactly giant Tempur pedic beds. So I'm going to have but this is what three nights, four nights. I'm crazy. I know I'm crazy. How big is a mattress toppers? Like bring it in a tent. It's all rolled up. I got it right out of the package. I ordered it last week. It arrived yesterday. This is how nuts I am. Now I'm looking at the 9 spot treatments I've booked. I'm looking at my current. Oh, I know. I'm living at the spot. I got a sopa derm thing patch thing for under my ear because I'm convinced I'm going to get seasick. Because my room get this. My room is in the absolute back corner of the ship. Well, again, regular cruisers listening to the Mark Davis show right now know that you want to be in the middle of the ship because when it's going up and down, that's a fulcrum kind of because it's not pitching up and down. Right. It's not as violent. When you're on the end, you're getting whipped around like on billion on a Tilt-A-Whirl. So you lay down this kind of coin for this thing. And they've got you in steerage, but in a disadvantageous part of the ship. I think it's the way the ship is designed. It's a nice big suite. I'm not gonna lie. It's not a sweet. Now, I mean, it's identifier. I identifying the cruise line or not. Do you have any do you have any idea where you're going to even know the destinations other than punta de la goomba where you will be abducted? It's punta de la Mayo cenco. I don't know. I don't even know, but I'm getting a treatment there. I'm getting a Mayan body treatment. Oh gosh. So I don't think I'm gonna burn my skin with hot. What's the Mayan spot treatment? That's where they put you on the rack and they stretch those welcome to the Umayyad spot. I'm gonna come back permanently disfigured. I mean, I'm getting a teeth that will probably go bad. I mean, it's gonna be a nightmare. This is one of the worst. This is gonna be one of two things. I just think about this this morning. It's gonna be great. It's one of two things. It's gonna either become a tradition for me 'cause think about this. I pull out of here, Tampa, where I live. It's right out of my hometown. Right? I'd pull out. I'm not flying somewhere to get to cruise ship. So I just drive the garage actually I'm gonna do an Uber over to the over to the port and then get on the ship and then I'm back here Monday morning at 7 a.m.. It's just a warrior weekend. I'm trying. I can't figure out though if this cruise ship has a casino. They normally do. Now that's where it gets fun. Now that's what we'll get into. We're going to sit there and gaze lose a spot treatment because you're at the slot machine, the three card poker man. I love that. Okay, okay. That's the game for dummies. You don't have to do anything. I'm just two cards and you beat her. That's all the dealer. All you gotta do. I'm either excited or I'm dreading this. Fantastic. There are two things I know. I am 80% sure your trip will be fantastic, 100% sure our conversation about obi fantastic on Monday morning. 100% sure. I can't wait. Now, but enough cruise talk because let me tell you something.

"My partners for this long story and trying to cajole you. And let me tell you something ladies and gentlemen, when Mark Davis makes up his mind. I mean, I can't get him out of the house. I told him all along he should do the radio show from home. He won't do it. It's so weird. It's the weirdest. People listen to us right now over the metroplex, like, what? Could could work from home and he won't. I have my workplace. I have my home and to have them occupy totally different realms is central to my existence. You're a kook. I don't live in this building, and I don't do shows from my house. Yeah, but when you have COVID, guess what? You could do the show from your house. You don't miss ten days of work, and you could still be, listen, it is the luxury and the joy of my career that knowing that if I had to. I like being the radio station. I get it. It's just so weird. You won't budge. And I just like to roll out, grab a cup of coffee, scratch yourself, sit down and start doing a talk show. Oh my gosh, it is like a gift from God and heaven above the ability to do that. And the technology allows us to do it. All right, anyway, so put all that aside. You don't want to do the text message. I think you should. I'm not hostile to that. I may do that. It's fine. It's a great tool. I'm telling you right now and in fact, as we're talking about this, people will start commenting one 806 5 5 6 four 5 three one 806 5 5 mic if you have comments about mark's eccentricities. Exactly. Here we go again. And I'll happily read them. But here's the point. I walk into the studio this morning here in Tampa. I'm still getting devil, devil. Devil. Devil. People are so enamored with your wonderful wonderful song that was so good. I mean, it is so cool. Gotta play it one more time. I hope you don't mind because I love this. This might have been telling you that this is the new version. She loves the old version. Here we go. Here it is. Biden went down to Georgie, was looking for some votes to steal. He's in a bind his party's way behind he's looking to cut some deals. He expected Stacey Abrams in an atmosphere that's hot. But when they asked if she'd show up, she said, boy, I think that. I guess you didn't know it, but you and Kamala are through. And if you care to take a look, you'd see we're done with you. Now we've played second fiddle, but it's time for something new. The squad and I, riding high, we're coming after you. Joe said girl, I hear you and it might be a sin, but I'll take a nap. I don't give a crap. I don't think that I can win. Biden tried the same old lies it's getting pretty hard. His last fell flat in Georgia in the public getting tired. He says secure elections are a cancer on our soul, but we know it ain't Jim Crow two. Now, since Mark won't do it, it's not unwilling to me. You won't do it. I'll send you it. Okay, tell everybody what to do. Go ahead. All you got to do is text the keyword devil to one 806 5 5 6 four 5 three and I will do the work that Mark won't do I'll send you back the link of mark's brilliant very kind. And it'll just show up on your phone and you can walk around fire up your phone and say look what talk showboy did and there you go. It was pretty cool. I mean, I was neat to hear people all over the country reacting to it. Well, here's what Mike did. And this is so cool because he has that screen that massive screen in front of him, and he sent me video, not just a still shot, but video of the people of the requests on the MyPillow text line, coming in and just people from all the American time zones. Like a pinball machine. I never get texts like that. It doesn't work that usually like that. But it was spinning and whilst doing it right now again. So here we go again. Everybody wanted to hear I appreciate it so much. Thanks. And it was the timing was great with yesterday before we get to the Supreme Court mixed bag and it is a mixed bag. I mean, here we go again with Brett Kavanaugh. I just can not figure this guy out. You either believe in the prince and again this is Mark Davis tribute hour because you were right all along, you know it was government overreach, no business mandating now companies have to decide individually. I may still not like it that companies do it, but as you said months and months ago, now a company like Salem is free to say hell no on a vaccine mandate, which incidentally, PS announcer voice, Salem is saying, hell no. Unless it's funny, but from the very, very busy HR department, they said that for our stations in California, our stations in New York, you guys may still largely be saddled by state level requirements. And Minnesota apparently Minnesota is another budget doozies. But you know, but so we'll get to Kavanaugh just a moment, but before and all of that, but here's the devil went down to Georgia. Here's Biden with one of the most disastrous speeches. I heard somebody earlier today say anybody who wrote that speech should be fired immediately. Whoever wrote that and put that in the teleprompter for him, he's still getting pounded. He got pounded by the left. He got criticism from Democrats. He got enormous pushback. Jim Crow vilifying people who are against nationalizing our election, this whole push to eliminate the filibusters so that they can jam through this unconstitutional voting machine. It's what they do, it's how it's how they think they can win. It's how they think they can win. And maybe how they want..

"Life. So here's my question, I wonder if ten year old Mike Gallagher was groove into this. No, he never heard badges? No. Wonderful story, the young man when young man with. It was a pretty big hit. So I guess if I told you that clarence Carter still around an 86 clarence Carter also did one of the dirtiest records ever written, they couldn't even play it on the radio, but it was huge on the jukeboxes called stroke and I'll just leave it at that. Also gave us the provocatively titled back door Santa. So I guess patches is the one thing from clarence Carter that you can actually play on the radio. There you go. Boom. Hey, happy Friday. Happy Friday, half of half of a victory lap with the Supreme Court yesterday before we get into any of that. I have this big screen in the studio. We call it the MyPillow text line. And people can write comments, you're afraid of it. You won't do it, 'cause you keep giving people to my pillow text line so they can kick me in the nuts. That's generally just in general. You could have a text line where listeners could connect with Mark Davis, a guy that they have spent years nearly reachable enough. Well, it's a cool way. Listen, if anybody's a jerk, there's a little icon, you block them. You can block them in 5 seconds if it actually feels empowering to block them. And I don't tend to in a weird way on Twitter, I'll block you all day. One stupid sideways nonsense thing. Boop, you're done. If I set up a text line like you have, where somebody is actively listening to the show and chooses to weigh in, even if they're a smart ball, I probably wouldn't block anybody, and it would drive me insane. You know, you are so weird. You're such a creature of habit. You are one God. Yeah. And you're not alone. A lot of my colleagues don't want to do it either. And I love this. I'm kidding. I'm not I'm not hostile to it at all. It's like an ongoing focus group. I mean, it's so cool. It's like, well, it's what we do is taking calls. I'm sorry, I know. It's taking text instead of calls and a lot of people don't want to go on a radio show and have their voice horn, but they heard that they wanted they want to opine, they want to tell you whether they agree with you or not. I love this. And it has provided you with all kinds of show material because if there's somebody that doesn't have two or 5 or 14 minutes to be on hold, they can take 30 seconds. Text you something you can turn around and say, hey, biff in done even Florida just said this. Bingo. And when you do, for example, when you and Ronda talk about soda, people could text the keyword soda to your text line and you can send back the link so that people can sign up for the for the show to weight loss program that's so successful. Thanks for this. Plu pays for this. It's 50 bucks a month or something. Jeff Mitchell will pay for that. They'll pay for it. He's about to save some money on in-house COVID testing. They're not going to have a full-time nurse on staff around here to swab the noses of employees, but sorry that we're not a hospital. So we're going to get to all that just a moment, but let me go back to the text line of my.

"Going. And one final note here, I just finished an article before I joined you, America's tornado warning on axios. Do you know how don't even consider is it climate related? Of course it is. It's so ridiculous. It's manipulative BSE opportunistic nonsense. It is shameful. Yesterday morning I was watching CBS in the hotel room getting ready over the theater and the CBS meteorologist said, oh, you know, this could be climate change. But then again, here are devoting, can you just talk about a tornado that hit this town? Yes. People are lost in hurting and grieving, but instead they got to slam this climate change narrative. Will warmer temperatures spawn more tornadoes? Yes. Could the temperature of the earth have an uptick? Sure, the notion that your SUV or a factory is doing it is a fraud. This morning on channel 5, very nice chart that they had, they took a look at Texas tornadoes since 1950. Our big months are like March and April where we've had like 500 since 1950. But in December, December, since 1950, you know how many tornadoes we've had in Texas? 72. It happens. There's nothing otherworldly about this at all. And the second thing, the other, just horrible thing that the left is done. First is climate change. The other thing that the stream of leftists was that this is somehow like God paying Kentucky back for electing Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell. This is what you get, you know, when people are cruelty, it's like that's not sick or anything. Can I just point out that Mark Davis fans are the kindest, I'm getting flooded on the MyPillow text line right now with comments about people their thoughts and condolences and how about this one a few years ago our 13 year old beloved lab was at the end of life. We had a trip to South Africa planned. We had plans with the family of Emmy died while we were gone. She hung on, she died the day after we got back. I mean, honest to goodness, nutty hung on till Trevor and lily got home last night. That's incredible. I believe it. Thank you for your prayers. Your thoughts and congrats on president Trump. I love you. Happy Monday and got one more weekend of daddy warbucks. I swear to you, you hear the word tomorrow. One more time. 'cause I always want the musical greeting and there's a part of me that wants to do something from the segment, but I'm no way I'm going to do that too. I'll turn off the mic. I will not. If I hear tomorrow, one more time I'm gonna leave. I'm done. One more weekend. I gotta give four more shows. So if I could time tunnel is one of my favorite premises. If we could put you in the time tunnel and go back 2025, 30 years, whatever. Change your life and not make you talk show guy Mike Gallagher, but give you what I've always perceived as something that's been a dream of yours make you a major major, major frontline top of the industry Broadway star. But what that means is you're in phantom. You're in cats. You're in a show where you've got to do the same show, 9, 15, 20 years old. You're flipping show every night. Could you do it? Shoot me now. Kill me now. It's the repetitiveness gets to me. I've asked people this. And they always say, well, here's what they said they go, well, every night is sort of a little bit. You might do a lot of different things. The audiences are different. I mean, it's Groundhog Day from hell. I got to look at that little girl. Come on, live in the mansion. One more time.

"Right. So like last start, I had ten a and ten. But on an airline that doesn't do reserve seats where it's just first come first serve everybody on there. You can't do that on Southwest. They must have a way to do it in the market because it's what? Well, how do they make the fat people get an extra season? Mine, I think that if you sit down and they don't call them fat people, Mike, they are a fat person. I'm saying that if you're fellow fat person, here's the trouble. Here's the real trouble and I'm sorry. I'm 12 years old right now. All right, wait challenge. Okay, mister want me to read a book by ibram? Can you now be abbreviation? The abbreviation is POS, but it's not that one. It's excuse me. It's all personalized. Passenger of size. Like woman of color, passenger of size. Let's text Mike with our reactions. But if you get to blame and sloughed off into that seat next to you, I guess. Guess what? Guarantee you there's somebody you know southwest. I can't give you the my pillow text line one 806 5 5 Mike. Let's get rid of that. Can we do this in the next 5 minutes? Yeah, but we'll get an answer. Don't like guarantee somebody knows because there's got to be a way they do it. Because you're right though, I don't know how because you're not assigned to me. I just go there and listen, is that even happening now with airline employees getting beaten up for looking at somebody the wrong way? Let me tell you something. And I've done it so many times over the years. This is my Denise's trick years ago. She said, why don't we get like a middle seat between the two of us if we get a cheap fare, but people get ticked? They want that seat, especially if you're like in a prime row like the exit row or they come at you and they're aggravated. Sometimes the flight attendants can aggravate it, like, do you have where's this person? I have that seat. What do you mean you have that sheet? I bought that. You really bought that sheet. It gets very can be very calm. On the theme of are we or are we not good people? Let me throw these out very quickly. So are you a fan of cookies, just broadly defined? Your cookie guy? What do you know me? I'm a fan of cookies and brownies and stuff more than I am let's say chocolate candy. I'm not a big sweets person, but a good cookie man. Well, there's a cookie industry these days and there are some franchises I could mention. And they're wonderful people they just make incredibly fantastic high quality cookies and some of them are like the size of a truck tire and you just go get them and they're awesome. And you can get them online and we thought about doing this at an event we were going to at a party we were going to. And so we called one of these local folks and you can either have them delivered, which is cool, or you could go buy the cookie place and pick them up. Well, I'm not throwing anybody well. No, no, no. They're a number. There's nothing the matter with them. But first of all, they're like three bucks a pop like 18 of them were like 60 bucks. It's like, okay, I'll bet they're tasty. I'll bet they're tasty. But as you're doing the online thing, whether they're delivering or picking up. They attach a 15% tip. It's like what? So on top of my 60 bucks, it was going to be 9. I pulled the blog. I said, nope. Doing something else. I am an enormous fan of tipping. I'm an enormously generous tipper, but I like it to be left to me. I don't mind DoorDash, I understand that's part of the deal. Blah, blah, blah, attach whatever percent. That's great. I don't know. That's am I a jerk number one? I don't think I am. But here's number two. And you're right about the tip rule there. I mean, it ought to be your discretion. Absolutely. I go crazy because these people in these gig economy they're not, they haven't been working. They're trying to their best to keep them close. I can like you. I go nuts with tipping. I do minimum $10 tip when I'm so here's number two. I'm in a department store parking lot and department stores are busy people are going back to real stores and I have the occasion to do so as well. At a store chain that I absolutely love. So I'm looking I'm hidden down a row looking for a park in space looks like and then I see, oh, here's one right up there. I get ready to pull into it and there's a sign indicating that I can not. Let's review the signs that indicate that this space is not for you. The obvious one, of course, is the kind of handicapped spaces. What do we call those anymore? I don't even know. Those of course are understood a part of life that's exactly what you'd have clearly maternity always. Is that one of them? The pregnant woman spot. You know what? I knew it. I love that one too. Listen, I've God bless pregnant women. Are you kidding me? That's fantastic. No trouble, no trouble, no trouble. Ladies and gentlemen, Mark Davis is in favor of pregnant. Woman park in space breaking women and their parking spaces, big support for both. Here's one that I'm seeing a lot lately, the wounded warrior reserved space love that. Absolutely love that especially on the occasion of the passing of a wonderful man like Bob Dole, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. No Mike, I've left one out. What's one of the things that you can see that a parking space is not for you because it's being reserved for? Yes, employee of the month. Or as they called it a valued associate. That's all right. What's wrong with that? Huge problem. What's the problem? That's I'm about to go in there and spend money. That's a spot I can't have. Oh, hell no. Though the wounded warrior great, the pregnant woman great, all the handicapped space is great, great, great. But no, no, I got an idea. Give Billy in the stock room, a 20 and let me have that park in space. Am I a mean one, mister Grinch? You are. I do. I think those employees. The employees of the employees of the month themselves would say give me 20 bucks. I don't even think in parkin space. Well, yeah, I mean, it does strike me. I think it's a way to just acknowledge them. I'm a little bit at the expense of a paying customer. That says, this is a space that we're not going to even let you touch because one of our people is going to get it. And there are no prisons. Are there no prisons or there are no urbes or Scrooge? Are there no prisons? I'm getting comments. I told you. How can I do passenger of size? First of all, Arlington text, fat people rule the world we can buy as many seats on Southwest as we want. Another one Mike Gallagher ten a king Tut ten B and then finally, I'm a fellow large person. Thank you, sir for having the proper phrase. I fly southwest frequently. They allow you to purchase an extra seat and then they refund after the flight. What? Does he refund the monitor? Well, that's very kind of bonuses you can usually pre board negative is that you can not sit in an exit row. That's weird. I wonder why would they refund it? That's a seat. They can't use. It seems like if I yelled at you. Right, and you're blocking it.

"Exactly. 'cause it's useful for some reason to you. I don't know who other than mister Sherman's niece or nephew. There might be listening. There could be listen. There could be family members. And you made, because you made me think about the way my mind like a ping Pong ball and in my ADD, I guess, the Sherman brothers had all the string of shows for Disney. There's a great documentary Mark about the Sherman brothers and their relationship with Walt Disney. And the whole process of writing for Mary Poppins and all that. I don't know how I found this goofy speaking of useless data, but I saw this documentary about a month ago and I made a mental note to tell you about it and part two of documentaries that apparently are a must watch. Have you heard about the documentary about The Beatles? I've got it locked and loaded, the great Peter Jackson has put together a three parter that's dovetails over top of the let it be movie, which was a depressing exercise watching The Beatles breakup, but it shows them as far more joyful, far more collaborative. Yoko did not break them up, was she kind of annoying, yes, but so is Linda. But here's the thing, I haven't seen a frame of it yet. I want to dive into it because this is such a Wheelhouse for me as let it be an Abbey Road. And so you watch them. I've seen excerpts in this and that. I just saw the trailer. Here's the weirdness. You see, for example, George, the noodling his way through one of the best songs The Beatles ever did. Obviously, it's all about letting him McCartney, but George Harrison's something. Something in the way, she moves. And he's trying to put that together and he'd go attracts me like attracts me like any stubs his toe. And Lennon says just put anything else in there. You want me to attract me like a pomegranate? Put anything you want to do that, whatever works with it. And I'm sitting there going no other lover. No other lover George. That's what you're gonna come up with. And you're just yelling at the TV apparently. And it's just amazing to see these iconic things these iconic songs take shape in their masterful hands. Beatles get back on Disney+. I think it was Rolling Stone that described it as the greatest documentary about any rock group or any musicians in history. Here's what I don't want to say fear because it'll be fine for me for the casual fan or somebody who's like approaching this as maybe you're 30 or something and think, because what's this about? It may be. Maybe a little bit more because it is a deep dive into some really arcane processes. If this isn't the soundtrack of your life, yeah, exactly. May not connect, but it's a fascinating artifact nonetheless. But for most of us it is the soundtrack of our lives and I can't wait to watch it now. Let's not bury the lead. Headline, I couldn't believe I saw this in the Atlantic Mark Davis best friend, Chris Paul of CNN. Yes, indeed. You have become a regular on Christmas show. Here's the headline of the Atlantic, all kidding aside Chris Cuomo must go, this is from the Atlantic, journalists are revelations. Yesterday, the New York attorney general revealed new documents that showed how Chris mixed his role as brother and broadcaster, the documents show that he was absolutely fully engaged in passing info and Intel to a top aide to the embattled governor as his brother's team scrambled to respond to accusations. He this is a mess for him. Now, you know, I keep hearing James Earl Jones voice in my head, but this is CNN. They may not care. They may not. Keep in mind you've got Jeffrey toobin is back. How's that happen? That doesn't get you bounced. Listen, I'm going to go on a limb here. If I do that at Salem, I'm out. You're gone. Exactly. I think either one of us do what Jeffrey toobin did. Let me be Mark Davis here for people who don't know what Jeffrey toobin did. The man literally pleasured himself during a Zoom call in front of a bunch of colleagues, apparently not realizing the camera was on. Whoops. He was suspended for a long time, but he's back. I mean, he's on TV last week. He was on TV opining about things that are immoral and things you shouldn't do. And everyone's like, dude, are you kidding? You're the guy? So you know what we got to do now is take 60 seconds on people are going, wait a minute, why did Chris Cuomo do? His brother, Andrew, needless to say, went through a lot of trouble. A lot of accusations, et cetera, et cetera. So I'm absorbing this. And I'm thinking about it and looking at it and seeing watching the bell tolling possibly for his career on CNN. And here's the upshot. His brother was in big trouble. So let's examine this and take the Cuomo's out of it and take the politics out of it. Where does he go wrong? In trying to help his brother through this, wouldn't anyone in offering up ideas on messaging on how to get through this? Wouldn't anyone, his problem was laying down what appears to be a lie about how involved he was in the process. And it really gets dicey. Here's the real tricky thing when it looks like you're trying to evaluate accusers. Like, is there something that makes this accuser or that accuser someone less credible? That begins to look like savaging the accusers in a time when all accusations must be believed, which I've never said, I believe all accusations need to be assessed and weighed and evaluated. Honestly, I'll give you one sentence and just hand it back and you'll probably mock me. A lot of the stuff that Cuomo did, the Chris did for his brother is something any brother would do for any brother. The problem begins with deception..

"This is top secret audio. From the final dress rehearsal, I believe I was told? It was. And this just in. This guy can sing. Processing. Man, the first week of that, that is from the final dress rehearsal of Annie on the children's theater stage, the Greenville South Carolina. That's where Mike is deployed for the month leading up to Christmas and weekend number one is done for shows under your belt. How did they go? Hey, big weekend, sold out, standing ovations. I even got entrance applause. Now, let me give you a little back theater explanation of that. That's when somebody really famous first appears on stage in the middle of a piece. Sammy Davis Jr., they opened the door Archie bunker. There's somebody already famous who draws applause before they do a single thing. We're just all four shows I got entrance applause now. It was led by all my family and friends. It was just showing me about it. It was just peg Hudson. It was just my peeps. No, it was really a lot of fun. I had a great out of the way, but I'm really proud for the theater because they struggled of course during the pandemic like a lot of performing arts communities did. And they sold it out. They're over budget. They're sold the whole run is almost completely sold out. They added show, didn't they? They had three Saturday nights. 16 times were doing this sucker. Tomorrow I see. I gotta hear tomorrow one more time. I'm gonna just. But now we're having a great time. So thanks for checking. Listen, what a weekend though and what a bunch of news to cover and break down. Let's go. You know, my producer just found the clip where Joe Biden once said, no president who has the kind of COVID numbers the Trump has should be allowed to be president. That's right up there with when he accused Trump of being a racist because he banned travel from South Africa. Remember those days? I do. You old enough to remember that Mark? It was X days ago when all those things happen. So what do we have here? What is it you always say on Twitter? What's so phrase? I always forget a phrase you say. It's imagine my surprise. Imagine no, it's like, tell me more. No, you say something like tell me more. I don't know, but it's perfect Mark Davis, anyway, headline Biden administration announces travel ban from South Africa due to other countries. The details. That's what I love. Yeah, I knew we would come up with a couple of memory challenge guys. No, I love that. I mean, because he literally tweeted out. We've got the tweet in front of me because it didn't age well. Quote, Trump further diminished the U.S.. This was by the way, February 1st, 2020, okay? Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban is designed to make it harder for black and brown people. To emigrate to the U.S., it's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed. Quote, unquote, do tell Joe Biden. Do tell. I mean, what a bunch of them. It's pathetic. Hey, you want to get into some real hot potato? Can I throw a hot potato your way? Always. I mean, it's Monday, the final Monday in November. It's the the Monday after Thanksgiving. I've got a kid who is all about the Salvation army. Are you following what's going on with the Salvation army? Tell me. Well, the Salvation army known for, of course, its presence outside stores at the bell ringers and of course. They have asked white people to lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed. They have a guide that they've put out this year called let's talk about racism. Oh, lord almighty. We recognize that it is, oh, you can't believe I'm an emails I've got. Have you gotten an email address? I'll crack email in an hour. I know. I remain incredibly unplugged. But I did start to immerse myself in it. Just since you've been talking, here it is. The racism guide from a Salvation army saying that racism is systemic, which is false. And that color blindness is harmful. In other words, doctor king's dream of judging people not by the color of their skin by the content of their character, that is so 1963, and this breaks my heart because I have loved the Salvation army, my whole life, and still do, for all the great things they do, but it breaks my heart for a lot of reasons. I think they saved my kid's life. To be very blunt. I don't know that my son would be alive today. We're not for finding the lord through the Salvation army. He is diligent. He's heartbroken too. I mean, listen, he's one of us. He is not woke. He is, I think a pretty common sense right of center, young man, who, I mean, he says that there's it's just a mess. And you know, it's funny for years we raise money for the Salvation army, but and a lot of people are emailing me to say, Mike, how can you ask people to support the Salvation.

"They're already underwater. Speaking of underwater, for those who don't know to finish up Mike's thing about MSNBC, a stringer, some intern, whatever was dog in the jury bus. And the consequence for this is judge Schroeder banned MSNBC from the courthouse for the rest of the trial. Go ahead. And instead of righteous indignation as a response, MSNBC didn't act all you know, you think, how dare you? You know, we haven't, no, no. They regret that it happened. They regret that it happened. How interesting. So what do you always say? What's your phrase? I always forget your phrase when you have a lot of tell me more. No, there's one phrase you use on stuff like that. It's like tell me more, but it's not you say, oh, you don't say. I love that. You don't say. You know what I'm saying? She is not pushing back. Speaking of underwater numbers, this quinnipiac poll came out yesterday for Biden. My lord. This guy is now less popular. He's at lower approval ratings. I mean, it's bad. It isn't just bad. It's worse Mark than any governor in the United States. President governor, what president? No. He's lower than any governor. Okay, wow. That's right. Is there any governor screwing up the country as badly as he is? The least popular governor happens to be Oregon's governor. Oh, you don't say Kate Brown. She's at 43%. That's still better than Biden has an approval rating of 41.2%. This stuff scares me. There's part of me. There's a little bit more to me that says, stop talking. Can we have the election? Can we have it tomorrow? The pendulum swing, things are the way they are until they're not. There's going to be a rebound. He'll do something coherent or semi decent in April and everybody go, Biden's back and everybody will want to do that and they'll cleave to that narrative, and I write back. Can I say out loud, the quiet part? Sure. And I hate to even say it out loud because I did a band this week. I'm very happy with myself. I did a ban on COVID talk. Now, the audience is mixed. Most audience members seem to like it. They're fed up, we're tired of speculating about mandates. And this story about, I mean, people are just fed up. One quick note on that. Have you seen the percentage of people who have actually gotten the booster? You understand, Mark, nobody wants to get the booster. People don't want to get it's like 12% so far have gotten the booster. Have you gotten the booster? I'll get to it. I don't know. Have you gotten the booster? I have not. You don't say. Don't say. Okay, so but that's the case for everybody I know. I don't think I'm the only dummy that got the booster, which says a lot about me. Nobody I know has gotten the booster. They don't seem to know. I know a lot of people do it. But that's the next challenge anyway. I'm tired of it. I'm tired. I'm fed up. I think the audience. What's your what's your suspicion? You sound like your suspicious of something happening. What's the unspoken thing you're going to be? So suspending my no code well, I guess my COVID jets are applies to my show notes. You're among Friends. You and me together talking here on the bar stools. You know, we ought to do this long form. Anyway, to me, Biden's approval rating will ebb and flow with COVID. Right? I think Trump lost the election because of COVID. I'll go to my grave believe in it. What do you suspect? If COVID starts dissipating by next year and over the next couple of years, the Democrats are going to be all right. And I hate to say that as a spoken part that sound analysis. And they will do things they may do this. He may fire Fauci in August. Or something, and all of a sudden and get rid of all the angst and all the mixed messaging and what a place to be. And what a place to be, because my prayer every night is this damned virus would go away. You know, I hate what this has done to us. We have been in a nightmare. So goodness knows you want it to end, but if it ends, politically, the Democrats are going to benefit. That is a spectacular point. Now could we boil down to something enormously important and I'm only half kidding. But it is important to me, you, the audience. That is, is this my last show before Thanksgiving week of vacation? Or is it not? I have the wonderful Scott Braddock ready to go Monday. Poll gliese or Tuesday and Wednesday. If there's a verdict this afternoon and the streets of America are on fire or a mistrial and rioting breaks out from coast to coast, I can't not be here. So here's my pledge to the listenership is whenever the verdict happens whenever something happens. The very next Mark Davis show will be hosted by Mark Davis. Maybe just one of them. I'm so sorry. This is happening. No, you just. I'll be fine. I'll be fine. Oh, gosh. Hold on. I think people all over the metroplex. It's all right. It's all right. It's our style. We're going to come back. I tried to bring you guys. Do you know what's weird? I'll tell you what's weird. When COVID happened, and I came back from vacation and told the wonderful bulk weiser I need my show back. I literally asked people. I said, when if ever again, will there be a news item so big that I will blow up my own vacation to come back? The answer is a year and a half here it is. I think that's the right thing to do. And let me pull the curtain back. I still get beat up by our boss, Phil Boyce, because about a hundred years ago, when I was a WABC and he was the program director. He's our boss now in Salem. I was on a cruise with Denise in the middle of the stinking ocean. I was out somewhere. It was a Caribbean or something. That's an excuse. There was a story that broke. It was Scott walker. Remind me, was he impeached? They tried in Wisconsin where they survived a challenge I know. I mean, not that I want to challenge our boss, but it even look at it. We wanted to come off the cruise. He ten years later, I heard him remind me you were gone. It was a RICO. It was a recall election in 2012. And he was mad that I was on a cruise ship and he brought it up years like 8 years later he said, we are at that time Gallagher was on vacation when Scott walker had the RICO. Now, not for nothing if I was really, really mischievous. I point out prager is off for a four out of 5 days of every week. I don't think he's worked a full week in a ten years. So I get beat up for so listen, my advice to you is do what you think is best. And I hear you, 'cause it's a terrible feeling to be off when something big has happened. Look what you were stuck with 9 11. That was on the beaches of cancun for 9 11. I'll never live that down. Slackers. So I know it's a work ethic. So we'll see what happens..

"Maybe we should start the segment with Lee Greenwood every day Mike who's with me. Start and end. But we do it today. Why do we do it today, Mike? Because we agree with a 103 years lead Greenwood is a 103. That's incredible. We agreed one, and he is 79. I know it's him, but he's how old? He's 79. Wow. It's still rocking. It's still on tour, still hitting the high notes. He want his jeans. I want whatever he needs. That's it. That's it. You know, Chad, I always think of 9 11 whenever I hear that and I shouldn't. It's too bad that I ought to be thinking about the spirit of America, but I always think about how often we play that post 9 11. I played that on the radio show a lot in the weeks and months after, but that's awesome. What a magnificent retort. What a wonderful response. What a wonderful thing to say, I tell you what, you try to knock down our buildings. You try to bring down our country. We're going to give you a big heap and help at a Lee Greenwood talking about how much we love this land. God bless the USA. You've done good on that. Good decision. Last night flew into New York and kind of flew that they did. They took the route down the island of Manhattan. Every time I see that freedom tower, I think, yep, we did it. There was also a member there was a drive to replicate the twin towers. That's what I wanted. My first choice was to build them back. You don't want to talk about build back better. I wanted to build back exactly the towers. They knocked down. Give us back. Exactly the skyline. They took from us. But look, I'm not going to quibble out the freedom towers. Have you been up that thing? Oh yeah, it's a beautiful, beautiful experience. 50 bucks, isn't it? What does it cost to go? And of course, and let the left even ruin that. And our deference to China because it was absolutely known as the freedom tower for a long time. What? And then they stopped that. You're not allowed to call it the freedom tower because it offends the Chinese. What in the world? Well, okay. Here's the setup question. But Mike, what is offensive to the Chinese about the word freedom? Go figure. You have given me a beautiful pivot into my first thing. Can I go can I do the Mike Gallagher lightning round? Just bam bam here a couple of quick things. I've been sitting on for like days. But here's one that's just overnight. A gentleman named Cal mcnair, who's the chairman and CEO of the Houston Texans football team. He has apologized for his use of an anti Asian slur. And then I got to go read and see what God did he call somebody something? Did he, you know, wheel out is one of the terrible things that people have called the Japanese Chinese or whatever Korean folks have had. Nope. It was a golf tournament that he showed up, and he said, it's great to be here this year. We were not able to be here last year because of the China virus. And that's the slur. That's the anti Asian slur. As characterized by the conservative tabloid New York Post. New York Post calls it an Asian slur. Now, it's unbelievable. I mean, I sometimes I read this stuff and I think it must be Marcus gotta be us. It's got where did the virus come from? China. Okay. What's racist or a slur about identifying the geographical origin of a worldwide pandemic? The Spanish flu. Hello. He apologized for it. Because he had to. Of course he did. Well, he didn't. He could go the Dave Chappelle route. Yes. Did you hear Dave Chappelle on stage in Omaha saying listen if the transgender, the transgender people want to meet with me? I'm glad to grant them an audience at a time of my choosing and a place of my choosing. I'm not giving in to anybody, or one condition. A couple of conditions that they've got to watch my special from start to finish before they come at me. I don't know, I guess that's a good thing to do. Issue, too. This is similar in scope, but we've been looking at this for two three days. Have you seen the actual video of the teacher who decided to teach the kids trigonometry in a creative way? I have. Okay, this will take 30 seconds and people's brains will melt for just a moment because it involves going back to trigonometry class, which I hated then, and I hate it now. The three functions if you have a right now that's reminded me and reminded me of how much I hated it. And I'm half kidding. Thank God there are people who are proficient about this. Think of a right triangle, a triangle that has a right angle in it. And the sine cosine and tangent are three functions within a right triangle with a given angle the sign is the relationship between the opposite and the hypotenuse, the hypotenuse opposite the right angle. There you go. I'm almost done. The cosign is the adjacent side in the hypotenuse, and the tangent is the opposite over the adjacent. So it's like three fractions three related my eyes are shut. Here we go. Sine, opposite hypotenuse, SOH so cosine, adjacent hypotenuse, CAH, tangent, opposite over adjacent to a so it ends up spelling if you're write it down sohcahtoa, which sounds kind of like some ancient so gut doors. I was like some ancient raindance. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. It's the last Mark Davis and Mike Gallagher show. Well, it's the last day teaching for a woman named Candace Reid. For the moment anyway, so here's her thing. And the first thing I thought was maybe she's just getting creative and just like there's nothing wrong with the braves and what anything wrong with the Redskins. Maybe there's just a disconnect because she's all white and everything like that and shouldn't be doing it. But maybe she's just getting creative. So I went and watched the video and here we go..

"I am answering. I'm not saying you're wrong. We only got I'm also saying you're right when you say technically and you're right, you check the box. What's wrong do you, though? You've been throwing a curve ball and the caller, the pregnant, the pregnancy test is a great example of how terrible examples you brought up the illegal. You didn't let me finish my point. The pregnant she caller is a great example of how you haven't adjusted to the warp speed craziness. You're listening. Let me tell you why. You dismissed her and said, well, it's against the law. Brian, what you're not acknowledging is all of this is brand new. We have not lived for years like we've lived with precedent of not being able to ask a woman about her pregnancy status. This is a brand new head snapping development that you're gonna have to show proof of vaccine. You're gonna lose your job. And you're like, well I'm all right with that because that's what Biden said and it's an executive order. I don't like the government doing that, but I like private companies being able to do this. This is all new Mark. You're right. You're right about that. So that means that there's going to be a list of things that we're going to let businesses do in a list of things that we're not historically that at some point we decided, and I think it's called a pregnancies that the pregnancy, discrimination act or something we decided we're not going to be able to ask women about whether they are pregnant, whether they even plan on being pregnant, we're going to make that against the law. So I guess here you are saying that if we're chatting 5 years from now, you would like it to also be against the law for businesses to require vaccines. Mark, isn't that what you're saying? Can you answer one question? You saw the Dave Chappelle special last week. You heard him say, you take away a man's livelihood. You might as well kill him. You are your cancel culture. Your casual, no, it's firing somebody for not having somebody's talking about. He was talking about what's going on. It's the same thing, though. It's the same principle. You're taking away the dignity of a human being who says, and you're dismissing them. Go get another job. I just told him to go, you tell people I don't say that. I do not say it. You shed on Chris Cuomo's show last night, if somebody says, you're gonna lose your job if you don't want to take the shot. You said, we'll take a shot. It's not that easy for people, Mark. You're not rep. You're not respecting the deep resentment. If you're complete my quote, I said, my first answer for that person is get the shot. But then I realize I'm telling them what to do, which I will never do. And by the way, and I don't want government to either. And how by the way, this comment from I think this is where 9 5 one area code. Depending on how much the boss Alexa, where is area code 9 5 one? Area code 9 5 one is used in California. What's up with you in California? Is that the same person who's yesterday? Is that ever that I was at riverside again? I don't know. I'm giving this person too much air time. I was gonna give them, but they complimented you. So they're all I clearly have relatives at California. Well, they did yesterday too, right? Is that the same person? Did they say? I think they said something to you yesterday. There was positive, but I'm not going to give them their chronic and Alan blocking them from a generation. She can't have that. But I will paraphrase them. You did Texas proud and you did conservatism proud. And Mark, no one's going to accuse you of being a shaky conservative. And I'm not. I'm really not. We're living, I think we can both agree in absolute unprecedented. These are uncharted waters. We're trying to figure this out as we go. Here's a quick example. I'm about to do a musical in South Carolina and they're struggling with making sure everybody in the cast gets tested regularly. I think that's reasonable. They may not. I don't want to be listen. I don't want to be on stage with a bunch of 12 year olds breathing on me. They got COVID. I'd like not to get COVID. But on the other hand, you know, how far do you go? How intrusive does this get? What does that mean? Does that production of Annie, that production of Annie and Greenville South Carolina? Do they have the right to have a vaccine mandate? That's a bad example. Mandate for the cast and the company, everybody is required to be right. And a lot of the people in that community are very disappointed and I understand that and I respect it. And I will turn into Mark Davis, I'm kind of silently glad that I could be a lot of people breathing on me. They don't want you to get COVID. By the way, I started memorizing my lines. You'll love some of these lines. I forget that Oliver warbucks is such a staunch Republican. And I go through the lines. He's Friends, of course, with the Franklin Franklin Roosevelt, but warbucks is a Republican. So here's one line that I was memorizing last night where he invites FDR to his mansion to war boxes mansion on Fifth Avenue for dinner, and he doesn't expect him to accept. And so he hangs the phone up and warbucks says grace if I had known FDR would have accepted my invitation, I would have never invited him. And then he says, and then he says, grace, get Al Smith on the phone, find out what Democrats like to eat. That's tremendous. So this is all what Mike's talking about production of Annie gets yourself to Greenville South Carolina. What's the opening night? Yeah, but you have between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but coming from a Dallas, the majestic theater that majestic majestic stage musical, a funny thing happened on the way to the forum with yours truly playing suitless. Now to see having Broadway be back, that's lovely, having you back on stage. That makes America great again. People are asking me if you've accepted my invitation to come to South Carolina because I think you and Lisa and either would have a blast. How old were we? It's between nothing going. Slow time to travel, right? Just a weekend? Come on a week. You would love the upstate, and everybody would love to meet the guy who's now Chris Cuomo's new best friend. All right. Great job last night. These are ready to thank you man. He's going to do a great job for you. Today at ten, Mike Gallagher shows 6 68 of the answer..
