Seventeen where he too was held without. Charge for fifteen years advocates. Say seventeen other former guantanamo prisoners are now locked up in the ua under inhumane conditions. This is helen sheet inger of witness against torture. He's with the rest of their lives. We own the reparations us. We need to make sure that they are in good situations and continue to follow them and support them in attempting to make the rest of their lives for more. We're joined by two lawyers representing these men. Gary thompsons and attorney in private practice. Who's worked on pro bono guantanamo prisoners. He's the lead attorney for former guantanamo. Prisoner reveal men. Gaza also with us mark mayor staff attorney for reprieve. Us who's represented six men in prison guantanamo including abdulatif nassir who has just released to morocco. Mark let's begin with you. Can you tell us the circumstances under which he was just released. And what's happening to abdulatif nassar now. Absolutely thank you for having me. On the circumstances under which was released actually begin back in twenty sixteen as you said abdelatif. Nassir was held for close to two decades nineteen years without charge or trial. He was actually cleared for release by the periodic review board which is a parole institution. That was set up. Under the a barack obama's presidency and his staff by six members of a federal agencies from the united states including the departments of defense homeland security and the joint chiefs of staff. They determined unanimously. That up to latif nassir posed no threat to the united states or anybody and determined that he should be released from guantanamo. Unfortunately this determination came quite late. In barack obama's presidency and the state department at that time defer to the next administration as we all know was the trump administration president trump had campaigned on the idea of not closing tahoe and in fact not transferring anyone out of guantanamo and largely kept that promise so even though up liffey nassir was cleared by senior civil servants from the us government. He had to sit and wait until the political will within the united states changed and as thrilled as we are that i'll not nassir is now out that he is back in morocco and his with his family and is trying to start a new life in his focused on. The future of the fact remains that he lost close to two decades of his life and that number and twenty-seven men are still there without charge or trial Waiting for the political will of this administration to change us up and mark may. Could you talk a little bit about how he came to end. Up in one-ton mojo. I was originally a captured and transferred to detain there. And why did he never received trial. Well i can say that. That the reason why he never seemed to trial is the same reason. Why a twenty seven of those men haven't received a trial either and that's because they have never faced any kind of charges at all they're being held essentially as prisoners of war ability. If nassir ended up in one tahoe the way. A lot of people ended up in guantanamo. There was a bounty program. Essentially that was being run in afghanistan and in pakistan. I believe i the number. I might be getting wrong. I believe what the balance is being offered for. P- turning over people to afghan-american pakistani authorities was close to five thousand dollars at the time which was a huge life changing amount of money and he. We happen to know. In a lot of cases of people who ended up guantanamo that they were the result of people lying about the people who ended up there Or simply mistaken identity That's the case of another one of our clients who still detained. Guantanamo bay met rabbani the stories actually detailed in the senate torture report that he was detained. Mistakenly because the united states believed he was another man named hassan ghul he was severely tortured including techniques. That haven't been used since the spanish inquisition. The united states eventually actually detained mr hassan ghul at the same prison bog rem that Mister rabbani was being held at missiles. Strauss on goal was eventually released from there but now twenty years on a much like the situation that opt to latif nassir found him in just a month ago. Achmad rabbani remains there so sadly this is a situation that we've seen repeated for a number of the men who are still detained and the colts have been growing for the biden administration to close guantanamo. A how could that be done. And do you think it's likely one of the easiest ways is to begin with releasing the ten men who have been cleared for transfer and working to release all twenty seven of the who have never been again charged with any crime or at trial. It's unlikely that any of those men will ever face any trial This is especially true. In light of the fact that as well i think is your viewers and listeners will know the by administration has announced that the war in afghanistan is supposed to completely end By a i think mid august was the last Estimate that they had. And i believe earlier in the show We heard president biden saying that Combat troops will be exiting iraq by the end of the year. That says to me. I think to a lot of observers that the that the wars that led to these people being wrongly imprisoned in guantanamo or ending If there was ever a right and just time to be releasing these ben. This is the time to do it. The only thing that might be lacking moving these algae there is political will if they haven't been charged with anything if they haven't faced trial for anything if the wars are over then the question is what can the biden administration due to solve this problem. The question should be. What justification does the vitamin nistration. Still have to be detained. Be to be detaining. These people i wanna bring gary thompson into the conversation. The attorney who were pro bono for guantanamo prisoners and is the lead attorney for reveal manga. Zaw who is a former guantanamo prisoner. Can you tell us his full story. And then where he's ended up today. How a started at guantanamo. Thank you very much. Redevelopment goddess office from an area in russia called tartar stan and he began to practice his chosen religion freely in late. One thousand nine hundred ninety s.

He suffered extreme interrogation and supposedly confessed under duress Taken guantanamo in. October of two thousand. And two where. He suffered greatly for many years under harsh conditions in sometimes solitary. Eventually he was permitted to have counsel which is where we came in and we filed a petition for habeas corpus. And in two thousand ten. Here in dc where. I live judge. Henry kennedy issued the right of habeas corpus in order the united states government to release route reveal men gaza from gano. If believe it or not it then went through the case then went through a six-year kafka esque appellate cycle where he was not released and then in two thousand ten reveal also want a periodic review board. Hearing like mr nassar that mark mentioned and that same panel cleared reveal for release and then took the state department about six months to locate a country reveal to go to. He cannot go back to russia because russia has a record of killing or torturing a one quantum of detainees return to them so we thought it was our lucky day when it was confirmed that reveal could go to the united arab emirates where several other are. Dozen other ex detainees also went it was always reveals dream to be in an arab country. He learned arabic lonzo. He understood arabic culture. Wanted to be there. And we really celebrated that day reveal was on the last plane. Out on tottenham. Oh the day before donald trump was inaugurated. So it really felt like we had dodged Something terrible We were promised by our state department. That the ui had promised them that Reveal would be released in six months that he would be treated humanely that he would be given job and a place to live in about six months time which is similar to the saudi program for expertise detainees. It didn't come to pass. It turned out that the uae lied to the united states government. These so-called diplomatic assurances were were simply allies and reveal along with about two dozen. Other men have suffered even more in. Uae prisons most notoriously our zine prison these now four and a half years and they're not permitted a review by international red cross or requests in they've been able to get out. Sporadic calls to their families With the help of reprieve where. Mr mayor works. The dots have been connected We know there's torture there we know there's mistreatment and the the men stuck in the uae like brazil. Had all said is worse than guantanamo worse than guantanamo is. So that's why with with eighteen men still there. We call the uae gitmo east as opposed to get more west and with the numbers dwindling now. Thirty nine eight with eighteen in the they're really a pair. An biden a serious about closing tano. He needs to in his state department. Needs to look into the concept of re resettlement. Look at people like revolt and guys off some of the gaps. Garrett josh if i can. I just wanted to ask you about this. Particular issue of the uae has gitmo of the east to your analysis What has been the. Us government's reaction to basically offloading gitmo prisoners to another gulag totally complicit the uae past. All these men often uae and as far as we know did absolutely nothing to follow up on. Those diplomatic assurances. We apparently our state department at least under donald trump just didn't care Didn't care that they were lied to. And we've seen no evidence that that our state department even now under the biden administration is really doing anything to remedy the situation in the uae. Some people in the state department of told us their quote working on or they're in touch with people in the uae. But we're seeing nothing and in the meantime we're getting very very scared that reveal might be rendered to russia or in the case of the yemenis who are in the might take them back to yemen where they can suffer just wanted to remind people what joe biden said the last democratic presidential debate when he was asked by pbs moderator michel cinder about closing one tano vice president biden wiping to close one.

"Release. By the U.S. Military since 2016. 39 prisoners remain at Guantanamo. This comes as activists gathered last week in front of the cultural attache office for the united. The Arab Emirates in Washington D.C. to protest the planned rendition of former Guantanamo prisoner revealing back to Russia. He's currently being held in a UAE prison after being released from Guantanamo in 2017 where he too was held without charge for 15 years. Advocates say 17 other former Guantanamo prisoners are now locked up in the UAE under inhumane conditions. This is Helen sheeting of witness against torture. They've been tortured. This man will live with that for the rest of their lives. We are the reparations we need to make sure that they are in good situations and continue to follow them and support them in attempting to make the rest of their lives. Fulfilled. For more we're joined by two lawyers representing these men. Gary Thompson's an attorney and private practice who's worked on pro Bono for Guantanamo prisoners. He's the lead attorney for former Guantanamo prisoner revealing Gaza. Also with us Mark mayor staff attorney for reprieve U.S. who's represented 6 men in prison at Guantanamo including Abdullah teeth Nasser who is just released to Morocco. Mark let's begin with you. Can you tell us the circumstances under which. He was just released and what's happening to Abdullah thief Nasser now? Absolutely. Thank you for having me on so the circumstances under which she was released actually begin back in 2016. As you said if not sir was held for close to two decades 19 years without charge or trial he was actually cleared for release by the periodic review board which is a pearl like institution that was set up under the Barack Obama's presidency and his staff by 6 members of federal agencies from the United States including the departments of defense Homeland Security and the joint chiefs of staff. They determined unanimously that optimal Nasser posed no threat to the United States or anybody and determined that he should be released from Guantanamo. Unfortunately this determination came quite late in Barack Obama's presidency and the State Department at that time deferred to the administration as we all know was the Trump administration. President Trump had campaigned on the idea of not closing Guantanamo and in fact not transferring anyone out of Guantanamo and largely kept to that promise. So even though opted Nasser was cleared by senior civil servants from the U.S. government he had to sit and wait until the political will within the United States changed. And as thrilled as we are that optimal chief master is now out that he is back in Morocco and is with his family and is trying to start a new life and is focused on the future. The fact remains that he lost close to two decades of his life and that a number of 27 men are still there without charge or trial waiting for the political will of this administration to change as well. And Mark Mayer could you talk a little bit about how he came to end up in Guantanamo? How was he originally. Captured and transferred and detained there? And why did he never receive a trial? Well I can say that the reason why he never received a trial is the same reason why 27 of those men haven't received a trial either and that's because they have never faced any kind of charges at all. They're being held essentially as prisoners of war. Optimal teeth now ended up in Guantanamo the way a lot of people ended up in Guantanamo. There was a bounty program essentially that was being run in Afghanistan. And in Pakistan I believe. The number I might be getting wrong but I believe what the bounties were being offered for turning over people to Afghan or American or Pakistani authorities was close to $5000 at the time which was a huge life-changing amount of money. And. We happen to know in a lot of cases of people who ended up in Guantanamo that they were the result of people lying about the people who ended up there or simply mistaken identity. That's the case of another one of our clients who was still detained at Guantanamo Bay. Ahmed Rabbani. The story is actually detailed in the Senate torture report that he was detained mistakenly because the United States believed he was another man named Hassan Ghul. He was severely tortured including techniques that haven't been used since the Spanish inquisition. The United States eventually actually detained mister Hassan Gul at the same prison Bagram that mister Rabbani was being held at. Mister Hassan gu was eventually released from there. But now 20 years on much like the situation that optimal teeth nos are found him in just a month ago Ahmed Rabbani remains there. So sadly this is a situation that we've seen repeated for a number of the men who are still detained. And the calls have been growing for the Biden administration to close Guantanamo. How could that be done and do you think it's likely? Well one of the easiest ways is to begin with releasing the ten men who have been cleared for transfer and working to release all 27 of the men who have never been again charged with any crime or have faced a trial. It's unlikely that any of those men will ever face any trial. This is especially true in light of the fact that as I think as your viewers and listeners will know the Biden administration has announced that the war in Afghanistan is supposed to completely end by I think mid August was the last estimate that they had and I believe earlier in the show we heard President Biden saying that combat troops will be exiting Iraq by the end of the year. That says to me and I think to a lot of observers that the wars that led to these people being wrongly imprisoned in Guantanamo are ending. If there was ever a right and just time to be releasing these men this is the time to do it. The only thing that might be lacking from moving these out there is political will. If they haven't been charged with anything if they haven't faced trial for anything if the wars are over then the question isn't. What can the Biden administration do to solve this problem? The question should be what justification does the Biden administration still have to be taken to be detaining these people? I want to bring Gary Thompson into the conversation the attorney who worked pro Bono for Guantanamo prisoners and is the lead attorney for revealing who is a former Guantanamo prisoner. Can you tell us his full story? And then where he's ended up today. How he started at Guantanamo. Yeah thank you very much. Revealing God's office from an area in Russia called tartar Stan and he began to practice his chosen religion freely in the late 1990s he was a professional ballet dancer. Then drafted into the Russian army and came to a point in his life where he decided he wanted to leave Russia and flee religious persecution simply to live a life of religious freedom with his wife and then young baby. They attempted to travel south only ravelle made it across the border. Into Tajikistan Afghanistan and then Pakistan. Where he was arrested in March 2002 by Pakistani police and his mayor mentioned also sold for bounty. To the United States authorities who took him to Bagram took him to Kandahar and tortured him. He suffered extreme interrogation. And supposedly confessed under duress. He was then taken to Guantanamo in October of 2002. Where he suffered greatly for many years under harsh conditions and sometimes solitary confinement. Eventually he was permitted to have counsel which is where we came in and we filed a petition for habeas corpus and in 2010 here in D.C. where I live judge Henry Kennedy issued the writ of habeas corpus in order the United States government to release revealing Gaza from Guantanamo. Believe it or not it then went through the case then went through a 6 year Kafka esque appellate cycle. Where he was not released. And then in 2010 reveal also went through a periodic review board hearing like mister Nasser that Mark mentioned. And that same panel cleared reveal for release. And then took the State Department about 6 months to locate a country for reveal to go to. He can not go back to Russia because Russia has a record of killing or torturing ex Guantanamo detainees return to them. So we thought it was our lucky day when it was confirmed that reveal could go to the United Arab Emirates where several other or dozen other detainees also went. It was always revealed his dream to be in an Arab country. He learned Arabic in Guantanamo. He understood Arabic culture. He wanted to be there. And we really celebrated that day. Ravel was on the last plane out of Guantanamo the day before Donald Trump was inaugurated. So it really felt like we had dodged something terrible. We were promised by our State Department. That the UAE had promised them that revealed would be released in 6 months that he would be treated humanely. That he would be given a job in a place to live in about 6 months time which is similar to the Saudi program for exploit time of detainees. It didn't come to pass. It turned out that the UAE lied to the United States government. These so called diplomatic assurances were simply all lies and revel along with about two dozen other men have suffered even more in UAE prisons most notoriously the Al regime prison. These now four and a half years and they're not permitted review by the international Red Cross or Red Crescent. They've been able to get out sporadic calls to their families with the help of reprieve where mister mayor works. The dots have been connected. We know there's torture there. We know there's mistreatment and the man stuck in the UAE like ravel have all said it's worse than Guantanamo. Worse than Guantanamo. So that's why with. 18 men still there we call the UAE gitmo east. As opposed to gitmo west and with the numbers that gitmo dwindling now to 39 and 8 with 18 in the UAE they're really a pair and if Biden is serious about closing Guantanamo. He needs to in his State Department needs to look into the concept of re resettlement look at people like revel mango off some of the tiny. Garrett if I can. I just wanted to ask you about this particular issue of the UAE as gitmo of the east. To your knowledge what has been the U.S. government's reaction to basically offloading its gitmo prisoners to another gulag. Totally complicit. The UAE passed all these men off to the UAE and as far as we know did absolutely nothing to follow up on those diplomatic assurances. Apparently our State Department at least under Donald Trump just didn't care didn't care that they were lied to. And we've seen no evidence that our State Department even now under the Biden administration is really doing anything. To remedy the situation in the UAE some people in the State Department have told us they're working on it or they're in touch with people in the UAE. But we're seeing nothing and in the meantime we're getting very very scared that reveal might be rendered to Russia or in the case of the Yemenis who are in the UAE that their fate might take them back to Yemen where they could suffer from. I just wanted to remind people what Joe Biden said and the last democratic presidential debate when he was asked by PBS moderator Michel sundor about closing Guantanamo. Vice President Biden why couldn't you close Guantanamo Bay? Why couldn't the Obama administration closed? Closed Guantanamo Bay but you have to have congressional authority to do it. They've kept it open. And the fact is that we in fact think it's the greatest it is an advertisement for creating tear. It is an advertisement for creating terror. The image of Guantanamo around the world the fact of it. Mark mayor your final words. The only thing that the only two things that I would add were to kind of hone in on something that Gary was saying there he mentioned having petitioned for rid of habeas corpus back in 2010 that would have been during Barack Obama's presidency. And that means his Justice Department was opposing that petition for a writ of habeas corpus. We found ourselves in a similar situation with our client asado harun Gul. His Justice Department mister Biden's President Biden's Justice Department took the same position that president Bush's president Obama's president Trump did. We have ten seconds. What should Biden do? He should stop opposing these petitions for writ of habeas corpus and begin releasing all.

"You know, one fun thing. Ah factor, Not fun. But looking at the stock market. Always look for that stock that if you just bought this stock, it's up eight million percents of this. So what stock should you have bought? In February. Justus the virus was hitting Now, zoom. Believe it or not, if you bought Zoom stock, you know the video conference of Zoom meetings up 330% since the lock down began, zoom of 330% obviously Amazon way up. But and some say Zoom has more room to go up because they think a lot of people won't be going back to their offices so fast. Apple stock hits about $500 Today at today's the day They split four for one. So apple Amazon zoom. I know you always read these things. They say why didn't I buy? Why didn't but Well this one of those right now this one of those you can buy today. You just have to know what it is that start. But every time you see someone up, 1000% something went up 500% what That's going to be free of those sitting there right now. Just go figure out what they are. It's Goto Donna, who's calling from Longbridge. Donna, how you doing? Good morning, Mark. Um well, how about you? Good are imagine of voter base so absurd, so brainwashed that even when they're because of its promise to raise their taxes, disarmed them. Leave their borders in their cities. Unprotected feels so vote for them just because it's a party thing. I don't think so. That worked before. This is different. But thanks for calling. This is a little different than you used to call it. The silent majority. This is, you know, I think it was about a month ago a month and everyone that was on the Sean Hannity show and I said Trump could win New York. And it was all a joke conscious. I think they both were about to have me committed. It's getting closer to that. You know, secret internal polling shows Trump within five points now of taking New York. Very, very quietly. A lot of people's all independence and a lot of Democrats. Now they don't like this violence. This crime this looting their shooting. How many shootings this weekend in New York 30? The closer about 2000. MIA. It's like Chicago numbers. It's crime is out of control. People get mugged all over the place. Even those Upper East Siders, which always vote Democrat, their neighborhoods, they're filled with muggers and shootings and robberies. Everywhere. You look those upper West siders. You can't get more democratic than them. They got junkies and homeless all over the streets to get mugged and robbed and shot. They're all voting Republican in November, taking to send a message Don't be surprised if President Trump Carrie's New York and a lot of states that may shock you. Let's go to Tom and Queens. Hey, Tom, how you doing? Mark. Good morning. You talk about the interview that Trump did didn't catch the interviews that he did with Swan, Chris Wallace. And even last night, Steve Hilton all scripted questions. You know all that? You know, the answers are all just eat right off the top of that He had a he had all the data. Well, that's a good point. Thanks for calling. That's the difference. So Jonathan Swan who nobody knows who the hell this guy is. He writes for Axios on DH Chris Wallace. These are two of the biggest trump haters on Earth. To the most vicious trump haters who will not only ask the roughest questions. They'll do 1000 follow ups and President Trump called them up, and they like to do the interview voluntarily showed up to do it. Joe Biden has an agreement with ABC News that it won't be George Stephanopoulos will be David Muir, and the questions will be very gentle, and there'll be no follow ups. And even when he lied just out and out, lied about Charlottesville or about anything you could see the producer and the David mirrors. Here. Let it go. Let it go. Don't don't just let it go. So we'll see if they do the same thing for President Trump and Mike Pence. Next Sunday night. I doubt they will if they even even agreed to do a special Sunday night next Sunday night for Trump and Pence you know, they'll bring in five of the toughest questioners and try to tear him apart. Ah, another thing. Biden's campaign speech. You know, A lot of people point to this speech is proof that Biden is okay, well, we don't know if it was alive or on tape. There's still some evidence it might have been pre recorded in pieces. But the other thing is, there's been plagiarism problems. You know, he's been a lifelong plagiarist. He's gotten wiped out another campaigns. For that there was one chunk he took from a Canadian Prime minister and then most of it was plagiarized from his 2008 convention speech. You'll probably hear that mention this week by the Republicans. Biden all the things he said he would do. In the speech he said he would do in his 2008 convention speech and his 2012 convention speech and he was in office for eight years and never did one of them. Ah, that's a pretty good point. He never never ever does any of these things. I know you'll hear the Critics say the president hasn't laid out a second term vision. Yes, he has get the economy going again. Get some vaccines made. Get this thing solved. And that's the vision. What more do you need? Get the economy going. What's Biden's vision? I will raise taxes for anybody. Okay, what a great but efficient and to do a whole convention for an entire week. Without ever talking about the violence in the city's is unbelievable. Anyway, we'll get to Jake Novak next. He's always got all the latest on the lock down the virus. What's goingto solve this? What's going on in the economy? Business will get all of that in a second on 7 10 W. O R Let's get the latest news. Here's Joe Bartlett. Okay. Mark Mayor de Blasio empowering school principals in the city to set up outdoor classrooms for students and teachers, He says they can utilize school property.

"Slash mark. Well let's take some calls go to Vincent in Brooklyn, Vinson doing. Good Morning. Guys, you may know. The restaurants Italy have been opened up for the last week to dining and unfortunately seven out of ten restaurant. Owners say that they're running. They're working operating in the wreck because of the seating requirements and some restaurants is you jokingly alluded to twelve legal aliens in the kitchen? Somebody's restaurant is actually showed on TV debt kitchens where there's no possibility of this so-called social, just distance. Right, which brings me to another thing and I was joking with a liquor store owner about this in Europe. The social distance guidelines is one meter distance between two people, one meters, thirty nine inches or six feet. What is it that maybe in Europe the fibers, the coronavirus from living on the dog? These socialistic countries is lacy and can't leave as far as Corona viruses that live in the United States. It seems all over the place thirty nine inches versus six feet. I mean. What is it over here? Yeah all right, it's good point. Vincent thanks for calling. He's absolutely right. These restaurants is GONNA have to struggle for a while with that fifty percent capacity, which is not enough. Restaurants have been operating in the thinnest little profit margin, so it's not enough to make living, but they're going to have to do that. Struggle along with that. They're saying four or five weeks of that, and then they'll let them increase capacity. The big question is what is the restaurant after put every table six feet apart. They can't put. Too many people got to be the right now. It's twenty five percent capacity. Why can they do? They have to do that and the airline can cram two hundred people into a tiny plane with no air. It's the worst recirculated air. I know. They'll tell you what it's help filter. It's nothing it's the worst recirculated air on a plane and you'll see. Hundreds of people crammed into a plane. Everybody inches from each other, and this is now a restaurant where you're outside for an hour. This is in this plane for three hours four hours. Why did the airlines Why were they allowed to do that? Obviously a better lobbyists, but the that's why. Let's go to David in Bayside Hey David. Hey Martinez things real quick. Sienna poll. Who Do they interview because they still have Cuomo, sixty eight percent, and quite frankly I haven't met anybody who doesn't WanNa march him up. The steps to the gallows. number two The BLASIO has developed quite a profuse sweating problem on his newscast in the morning i. Sort of withdrawal symptom. Thank you all right. Thanks expert, call these college. Polls are the worst. Don't even read a college poll. It's a bunch of idiots students. They're the most rig polls of all all these public polls were rigged. You look at the metrics. Republicans, only twenty three twenty four percent of the sample. They're not surveying likely voters, which is the only category should be talking to. They make these categories adults. You know it's to ever they WANNA talk to. Go in the Faculty Lounge where it's a handful of liberals and that I mean the most ridiculous metrics. Totally, it's actually a great compliment to the president that they have to in whenever they have to rig the polls. That much that means he's way ahead. Hey, did you notice governor? CUOMO put out that deadly March twenty fifth order ordering the nursing homes to take you in Corona virus patients. It ended up with five thousand senior citizens dead. It could be ten thousand before it's all over It was a deadly the dumbest decision of the crisis. Deadly destructive it. Just catastrophic decision killed thousands of people in our nursing homes now Couple of things happen one. CUOMO claimed I was following the White House guidelines. There's no such White House. Guideline no CDC guideline like that total lie, completely the only thing in the CDC guide CDC guidelines is it says if you're GONNA put a patient in a nursing home. Here's the protocols and it was the most extreme protocols, but they never came close to doing so he's a total lie, then I don't know if you noticed. He pulled that memo down yesterday off the state's website. It suddenly vanished. You know maybe you want to call Hillary. Have some of that bleach bit lift. Maybe get up yet, and then He secretly in the budget bill snuck in a little law there that the families are not allowed to sue the nursing homes now. This is one diabolical guy, isn't it? and I notice. He's dropping in the polls. The Halo is slipping. Cuomo he was the worst crisis manager of any of fifty governors. You can the metrics the data backs that up. In fact I'll put up a chart Tamar of the. Worst performing governor of any in America as far as numbers. Everything you did every decision. You can break it down disaster. Buddy as Bob McMahon, said yesterday. Sure look good doing it. He album best briefings. That were charming. Colorful they were wonderful, but a disaster O..

Just try tickle it strike get it out when away. I was so close I was so close I was on the edge of a beautiful sneeze. And now it just it's disappeared. That is so unsettling. I mean, it's not a major tragedy, but how greater sneezes it's a little bit shameful depending on how you handle it publicly. But internally a sneeze delivers man, if you let a sneeze go. How great is it just to be outside? Have you ever? Just full-on. Just didn't hold back a sneeze at all. And just what's not and spit and that spray just come right out of your head out into the world, just because you're outside. And there's no one around the free sneeze. The sneeze of freedom. That's it's one of the it's one of the little things. It's one of the great things. It's one of the joys. Obviously, if you're sick, and you're sleeping, and you can't stop it, whatever. But that that surprised sneeze or two out of nowhere. When there's no one around and you're outside, and you can just let it go. And maybe you know, blow your nose old style. Like, just you know, right onto the ground hold one national shut and then the other one if no one's around. Hey, even if there's someone around, you know, life is short fucking wet him judge. You know, I mean Kleenex is a racket. It's a conspiracy. It's a it's a conglomerate it's a large business the Kleenex corporation. You know, we there was a time with no Kleenex where people are just holding their finger over one Nashville and blasting they held in the finger of the other nostril blasting then just wipe it on your your your shirt or your or your hide skin thing. Yeah. That's the way it was in the old days people. Walking around sneezing freely spreading disease that happens now, primarily in work environments, not small villages. I guess that's sort of a small village. Look what happened. I didn't enter I didn't do the professional thing. I was planning on doing initially which was tell you that Brad Garret is on the show today. Come on sneeze. Come on give it to give it to me. Give me something. Good. Give me something. Good nothing.

"In Tribeca marks. New York seven. Let's go to Nathan in Tarrytown Nathan. Yeah. Mark. Yes. Good morning. Good morning at Mark. I still get the willies when I look at the New York Post front cover turn it upside down 'cause it it scares me. But he's talking about the frightening. Look of Pelosi Schumer last night right after the president's speech where they look like twos. Zombie ghouls like to invasion of the body snatchers. Scarecrow looking people. Mark. Here's my point. I, you know, he looked Trump look very presidential debates points. But I'm an old marketing guy couldn't he abused visuals. The same thing that you have on your website showing that the Democrats are flopping showing you know, what a bomb is a white Obama says what he says Pelosi couldn't ask have been used their rules against that could have it would have been much more effective. You're right. He should have done that. Here's the problem. The president should never be doing these Oval Office addresses. This is old school traditional this is what all you know, typical politicians. Do it's the typical playbook that never works for Trump. Trump has to be the outside the box cutting edge guy be himself. That's what he does best. He knew this wouldn't work. He didn't want to do this. This was pushed and pushed and pushed by the communications team, Bill shine and. Sarah Sanders and Kellyanne Conway, but he should have gone with his instincts. But you know, if your team is pushing this, you gotta give them a little, you know, you gotta give them a chance. So he tried it their way it didn't work. It'll never work for him addressing the nation in those formal speeches is not Trumpian. He won't do it again. But he had a let them try it. And it didn't work. It's ineffective for him. It more traditional candidate. Maybe guy. Like Obama was perfect guy. Like Bush senior they were formal. They were good at reading the teleprompter. But how does he get his message out to everyone? I mean, I know he's got his tweets. But that only goes to his base is message is always filtered by the major networks. Yeah. The big moment coming up is the state of the union speech. That's coming up this month. Now when you do the state of the union, generally, the whole country is watching so if he's smart he'll stop listening to these people and say, you know, what I'm just going to get up there and talk like he does. At his rallies. Yeah. Instead of reading a teleprompter. Just give me do what I do in the rally outline the points. I wanna make and I'll just get up there and talk it's kinda dangerous. Exactly. And that's what works. That's what works for Trump. That's what works. It's very real. It's very natural. That's that's how we end up with his misstatements misstatements are fine. That's what got him elected people. Get the point. They know when you make misstatements they'll discount that. I always go by the Mario Andretti rule. And I know Trump does to Mario Andretti always said if everything's under control. It just means you're not going fast enough. That's important way to do things. Now. Listen. You could you could say it's better to be formal. But that's the big mistake. Pelosi and Schumer Meg what a wasted opportunity that was they looked like who mummies and they were reading listeners Schumer since ridiculous. He's just reading American democracy doesn't work that way. We don't govern by temper tantrums the worst college professor just reading a script. Let's go to Glen in Long Island. Glenn? Hey, how are you? Mark. Trump's speech, really sucked. I was waiting for him to to say that he's going to take ten million dollars for the defense budget. And you know, and the heck with you guys. Well, that's we're not at that point yet. They have OEM be studying that to see if that can be done if they could take it out of the defense budget. He by the way, you see all the fake news Lester Holt, all these people whenever they talk about that this. Why would you hurt the military at a time like this taking five billion of the military budget? If we were in a crisis. This could be weakened. The five billion would be half of one percent of the military budget. I think he can take half of one percent out without crippling the military. Let's go to Jane and Long Island. Jane? Hi, mark. Big fan of yours. I know if you knew that, Fox News. Catherine Herridge reported the other day that the Russian lawyer I can't pronounce her name or something. She met with Glenn Simpson both before and after the Trump Tower meeting who's Glenn Simpson. Well, he said they want at the dossier. Oh, okay. Yeah. That's the other thing. There's you know, the the super-busy investing. What connection she has in Russia? She is connected somehow to few Glenn Simpson is fusion GPS, and they are behind the dossier. A lot of people think it was the fusion GPS fake dossier people that sent her to Trump Tower are setup. Yeah. A lot of people think that and that has Catherine Herridge very good reporter that has been documented she was meeting with the fusion GPS people before and after the meeting so keep an eye on that. All right. We'll find out in a moment. We'll get the real final ruling on last night's speech and Coulter will be with us next on seven ten W O R have a chance to win a thousand dollars. Right.

Actually, does actually it does here and actually does. Israel's a pretty good example of that. Remember there had suicide bombers every day once they get the wall everything in place. No more that solve the problem. And again, we've done this in San Diego where they were just overrun with the illegals and crime. Once they put the wall up problem south.

"But we've also been seeing in recent stories coming out from many places that even the tornado the tornado unaccompanied minor of facility is also being drawn down significantly as well because of concerns about cost and actual ability to get a house and keep people there. You know? I think we do have another call on the line with a question about that as well. I think we have a John on line one, John. Good morning. First of all, let me say I'm in the same line of thinking is the first lady who who called in? But I have a different question earlier this week. I think it was Thursday evening. I heard I saw a story on the or an article a story on on TV news. Something about Mark mayor Margot was upset because the government or the federal government was sending a Bill to the civil pestle. I've been trying to get information on that. There hasn't been any reporting too much of that could do you have any details on that quite white. Mayor Margot is upset with the government on the cost of this. What's going on downtown? Right. So in that case, I think what the issue was that a again there was some appeal by by local leaders, including de Margaux for extra support for funds from the federal government that were just again, the answer in short summary was no that there was nothing being done there. I know that Margot even all grown up mayor Margot's a Facebook page post about meeting with. Secretary Nielsen who came to the region to talk about once this started happening was getting a well publicized. There was talking with them. But I don't think there was any specific costs detach bears. Again, once these people were released again that's been a primary, primarily volunteer and nonprofit response. But I think there was concerned that it's straining resources in the community enemy public infrastructure is being used. I mean, I'm sure people are, you know, you're getting around town taking buses using things like that. And that there was concerned that their resources are being strained. So there might be kind of silly every costs, but not so much a direct cost to the city of El Paso since pretty much the the funds and supplies have been put up had been donated by individual people, right? Could it be could it be the overtime for police? Officers are being utilized overtime for bus drivers. Could it be that potentially? Again. I haven't seen yet. Like like, you said I haven't seen like a specific accounting of what specific concerns are for costs for the city of all Paso. But I mean, you think about having a haven't had that kind of response for people who I mean, the general population while Paso is not something if they're, you know, suddenly where thousands of been downtown, they then have homes, and you know, resources at cars to go back to. But if suddenly a bunch of people that have nothing are left there that that creates a response question here, and like having people go to the hospital or having to take the public transportation. So there are probably those those kind of you know, secondary costs and secondary factor is going on. I don't know if it's something that can be accounted for in the short term. I'm sure someone at some point might be able to look at how things changed over this period of time. But nothing I've seen it kind of same situation there with that. Okay. Thank you. Thank you, very.
