Biden Divides Opinion as Comments Comparing Deaths of MLK and George Floyd Resurface

"Let's listen again to Joe Biden before we take your calls here it is cut two. This is a video that went viral during Martin Luther King day yesterday for some reason, but he actually said it months ago. But even doctor king's assassination did not have the worldwide impact. The George floyds. That did. Now, when you hear that, as a black American, is that does that make sense to you? Is that legitimate?

look like Let me put it down I just made it sound like I don't care about my job and I like my job very much There you go Please don't fire me This is my place don't fire me haircut Yeah You tweeted of newt fingers This poisonous mother destroyed the lives with investigations of the clintons him in every hole and in a few that don't exist Oh oh goodness So we have to create some Oh dear Working very blue right off the top That's up for interpretation there Okay Okay I mean this is what the stakes are in 2022 right Because you're right This isn't like a joke This is what fascism looks like Yes we are going to put all of the investigators in jail For I don't know what They've been telling us for years that they're going to get rid of roe V wade and they're going to do everything they can to get rid of roe V wade including you know doing what they can to take over the Supreme Court which is what Mitch McConnell did So when they tell you what they're going to do believe them Yeah Yeah You wrote a well a rather filthy piece as you do Martin Luther King would still are up And you make a good point If you are against voting rights are against getting rid of the filibuster so you can vote for the voting rights you claim your for you may as well just on king's monument in D.C. and we will all judge you by the content of your character Oh goodness gracious Yeah Thank you Thank you That's the thing And every one of these you know I think we talked about it on Monday The last Monday on Martin Luther King day that they keep on trying to evoke Martin Luther King without actually dealing with Martin Luther King with how really truly radical he was you know I love that what's her name Oh my God I keep and Hanna Jones doing the speech where she quoted king Yes And did you hear about this Yes Yeah she did a speech where they were worried about her speaking Some people expressed worry about that she would be divisive to give a speech on Martin Luther King day So instead she took snips of slips of Martin Luther King His actual speech Yeah His actual words just change Negro to black and said that as her speech and then at the end said oh by the way that's what Martin Luther King said not me Oh my God You know suck on this 1619 project Yeah Exactly By the way who's this somebody doctor lucky somebody tweeted almost 4000 people died from COVID in the U.S. yesterday This was Friday The same level of death we saw in the winter of 2021 given that we now have vaccines and extensive knowledge of how to use public health measures to stop the virus spreading This is an absolute failure of political leadership And you said or it's a rousing success of conservative misinformation I mean you know this is part of how the media has helped us get to where we are rude but just take COVID alone Rather than saying it is exclusively almost because of anti vaxxer Trump red state voters that will not get vaccinated that is where we are We've just both sides ourselves into year three of a pandemic I mean I'm thinking of you talking about going back to school I mean the problem is COVID's not going down for kids because largely when all of our kids vaccinated We're choosing you know this is our polio and we're just choosing to go oh no you don't have kids don't have to be vaccinated Let's just send them back I mean I agree I'm sure as you the kids need to be in school but they need to be vaccinated Like they offer every other disease we've ever eradicated right Yeah Right I mean at some point you know I'm thinking about hurricanes Go with me for a second Okay And during hurricanes they tell everyone to evacuate Right But there's a point where it's like there are people that are like hell no I'm not evacuating I am staying right here I've been through every other hurricane I'll be fine for this one And at some point they say well okay you've passed the line from which we can come and rescue you until after the hurricane is over And then people that stay behind die and we don't sit there and go well you know I guess I was just their choice and they died They died free damn it Yeah Because they didn't listen to the mandatory evacuation order It's like you know at some point you can't do anything about it And all of these commentators seem to think that Biden can in some way force people to get vaccinated Yeah No exactly I love this tweet Andrew tweeted the anti vax rally Today's super spreader event going on right now in D.C. actually played the music of a guy who just died from COVID because he wasn't vaccinated and about one 31 of meatloaf's greatest hits Are they joking I mean and of course you know they collected a bunch of Proud Boys election deniers They're all becoming one group COVID deniers election denier crazies Just conspiracy theorists Go ahead Yeah I got to do it back and forth A brief back and forth with Tim Robbins on Twitter I have to say well I've said this before I am personally so disappointed in Bobby junior because I know him I considered him a friend I got to go play banana gram with Ethel Kennedy because he invited me to the Kennedy conference So I know him I've had him on the show I've loved him and it is so profoundly disappointing And you said the same thing of Tim Robbins finding out he was an anti vaxxer that he's someone He's not an anti We've had Tim on the show and I've loved Tim's work obviously I don't want to misrepresent it He's not an anti vaxxer He's anti vaccine man He's anti mandate Which I said well no that's just we know that it demonstrably saves lives The mandates I mean you want to argue about vaccine passports and other things Fine let's do it But mandates save lives we know it Yeah Well you said this is disappointing as hell from an artist who has worked whose work has moved and inspired me And that's what's hard is when I see Bobby Kennedy using this name that's sacred to a lot of us on the left here in America to further Tucker Carlson and Fox News in these crazy anti vaxxer talking points It really does hurt my heart I mean the fact that he's making like Holocaust analogies this weekend that he said at least Dan Frank could hide in an attic I mean I don't know what to say I don't know what's he's been anti vax for a long time And he was one of the people that first started the autism vaccine link and was there were all kinds of articles with him being the voice of that movement But I just sitting there thinking between that and your environmentalism Bobby why.

How the Left Supports Segregation

"This is from today's Los Angeles Times. Editorial, because it's Martin Luther King day. I'd like to read to you a quote that they bring to his attention. They're so they're so not self aware on the left. That the actually coat this has to find the now. Here we go, ready. They actually quote Martin Luther King. And their editorial on his birthday today. Well, today's birthday or is this the Martin Luther King day? I go and completely opposed to that. It's very sweet to have a three day weekend, but it's more important to honor the actual day. Okay, anyway. So they're signing what Luther King visits to California. And they mention a speech he gave her to synagogue, temple Israel. And they quote him. Segregation of any kind is wrong king told the congregation because it is nothing but a new form of slavery covered up with certain niceties of complexity. That's how unself aware the Los Angeles Times editorial board has left wing in editorial board its exist in mainstream media, which means they don't think clearly. You can't think clearly and be a leftist. You can be a liberal. You can be a conservative. It can't be a leftist. You know whose first segregation today, the left?

"And I'm proud to present to you on Sebastian gorka's show John Solomon John welcome to the program. Great to have you with us brother. It is good to be with you. Happy Monday. Happy Monday. Here we go and happy Martin Luther King day. John. You're our go to guy if I may. And so would you explain to me the pressing is voting rights situation? You know, John, I didn't know there was suppressing votes in America. I didn't know I always felt as a person who just showed up and voted my fault was being suppressed. My vote wasn't counted because I wasn't one illegal. Number two, I wasn't dead yet. Despite what you might hear right here. Explain, explain to me, what is going on with this voting rights like they double that and they go to Georgia where they might very well have been shenanigans down there and I'm being kind in the 2020 election, but they doubled down. Could you break down what they want to vote for? And what they will end up with down in D.C., please. Yeah. Well, first off, the bill is in some dire trouble because there are at least four Democrats that are holding the line on it. Joe Manchin, Kirsten sinema, Mark Kelly and I'm thinking that the fourth one now just gave my mind. But they've got a little bit of opposition in their own party, particularly in these Democrats that are in the swing states. And so the bill may not happen. It may go the road of the BBB and some of the other Biden democratic plans. But the big thing that Joe Biden talks about being Jim Crow two is the idea that it is inherently racist. It is voter disenfranchising to ask someone to show their ID before they vote or descend in an absentee ballot. And this is an interesting thing because every poll that I've seen in the last year, including one, we did it just to know news says 70 80% of Americans support this. But there's a fascinating new poll out in Michigan. It surveyed Michigan voters who voted in the last election. And here is the ticker. African American voters, the very voters that Joe Biden says are disenfranchised by a voter ID. They support voter ID by Uranus, 79%. In fact, black voters were more strongly supporting of voter ID than all other voters

Senseless Crime in NYC Needs to be Addressed After Times Square Shove

"When I listen to doctor gorka, he says a lot of the things that I feel, you know, and he says with such strength and conviction, you know, Jersey Joe. Jersey Joe. He calls me, you know? But I love that. But I'm kind of like under the radar and kind of quiet, but man, I tell you what I've been taking the gloves off recently because of what's happening in crime. We just had and forgive me and I look at Martin Luther King day. I want to have some fun. We have some great guests, but I hesitate to do this every morning, but there is news that is unfolding, and to understand it as a look at the news before me. There was a gal that was like pushed to her death in a subway station in New York, and then Eric Adams, who we wish all the best for, by the way, the new mayor. You know, he's going like, he's going like, oh, well, you know what, it's maybe it's not as dangerous as it seems. It's just a misnomer that the subways that danger just kind of got pushed to her death. You know, how about in Los Angeles? You see this? And as you listen in LA, you know? In the town in the state where Larry elder will one day be governor. Hello. Oh yeah, you check it out. But there was a girl that girl in the furniture store to stamp. What's going on with the crime? The crime rate. And there's nobody in charge. No one in Washington. Nobody watching it. And at the time, my political beliefs, they say your conservative, I'm not more of an independent than anything else. I've had it with both party. I don't trust the Republicans. I don't think the Republicans are being strong enough, you know? My hopes are high for this year. Hopefully in November, we'll see a change in the House of Representatives, but my hopes aren't I, because once the Republicans get in, they just really don't do much. So I'm hoping that will

Would MLK Support Things Like Affirmative Action?

"Today is Martin Luther King day and we're going to be treated or perhaps subjected to the usual over the top tributes to king. Now I do admire Martin Luther King. I admire what he stood for. And I admire especially what he stood for in the critical part of his career. Early in his life, Martin Luther King was involved in some scandals, he was he had a plagiarism, scandal, for example, and he was in many ways a flawed man. I don't really need to go into that. He also became sort of radical toward the end of his life. He wanted a massive redistribution of income, he became a sort of, well, he became very close to a socialist, if not a socialist. But the one thing he never did was he never deviated from his central idea was that we as a country should be judged on our merits as individuals. In other words, in his own words, by the content of our character not the not the color of our skin. This was Martin Luther King's famous dream. This is why we have Martin Luther King day. That's what defined king. And the left now tries to imply that somehow king gave up that idea became an advocate of affirmative action, supported race based preferences. And none of this is true. In fact, I had to debate years ago with the reverend Jesse Jackson and you know this was at Stanford University. And I challenged the reverend Jackson. I said, 'cause he was like, I knew Martin Luther King, you see, he would have definitely been on board with affirmative action, and I said, well, quite apart from this kind of appeal to personal familiarity, can you point to a particular example where king does not support compensatory justice in a particular case, but a system wide nationwide system of race and ethnic preferences. Let's just say in college admissions or in job hiring or in government contracts. Absent a showing of actual discrimination show me where king advocated that. And of course he couldn't do it so he resorted to his usual deflections. Iambic pentameter, you know, those famous clearing of his throat and

The Left's 'My Way or the Highway' Approach to Politics Is so Problematic

"But you know what else is not healthy for this country is my way or the highway approach to everything that's going on right now. There's no discussion. It's Joe Biden pointing the finger and saying, you know, if you don't agree with me, you're racist. This filibuster has to be dealt with because it's a bunch of racists that are in the way. I mean, it's so infuriating that they sort of try and reduce everything to sort of the worst possible thing you can say about someone. And the reason they're doing that is because it's worked, right? There's no comeback for that. What do you say? I mean, the minute you try and even respond to accusations like that, you're on the defensive and it makes it look as though it's true. And so this has been their point of attack. I mean, let's turn it the other way here, because what they have done via things like critical race theory in our school systems. Via the discrimination, frankly, against anybody who now is actually white or Caucasian. That is problematic. I mean, they're assuming so much less just based on the color of your skin. I don't think this is how Martin Luther King would have wanted it. As we go into Martin Luther King day, weekend here, I don't think this is what he wanted at all. He wanted us to see beyond color, and yet the state of New York is prioritizing non whites and Latinos for COVID treatment.

Why Is It Racist to Ask for Voter ID?

"And the Democrats are playing on a whole other level. I mean, you look at what Chuck Schumer is doing right now insisting that he's got to get the filibuster before Martin Luther King day. If they don't get their voting rights acts. And somehow it's racist to say that now it doesn't really make sense that we're just going to allow every single person in the United States of America to just mail in a ballot. I mean, how do you check IDs? How do you check social security numbers? How do you know that the person who filled out that ballot is really the person? I'm still naive enough that I think you ought to show an ID when you go to vote. The concept and these used to really get me when I lived in New York City. I'd always bring my ID. Every single time, because I'm like, Shirley, surely they'll need this, right? And they never did, of course, because somehow it's racist to ask for ID. I don't get the logic given that now they're trying to card everybody to go into a restaurant in New York City or into a building in New York City or a store or a movie in New York City. So if you have to be carded for that, then soon to be carted to vote, right? I mean, just to play

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy

"Today is Martin Luther King Day a day when we look back on Dr King's commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience to advance civil rights and reflect on his famous 1963 speech delivered here in D, C. I have a dream. A little Children. One day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin. But by the content of their character, I agree. Following last year's death of a black man, George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and this month's deadly attack on the U. S Capitol by supporters of President Trump include including far right extremists. Is Dr King's dream still alive? Well, joining us now to talk about that Maya King with politico who covers politics, race and campaigns. My It's always good to talk to you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. Thanks for having me. What might Dr King think of the protests going on today? How far have we really come on racial issues as we mark his birthday. I think it's king were alive today he would be able to draw a number of parallels between his time in his experience and activism and what we've seen really over the past 12 months, with massive protests and civil disobedience, calling out Systemic racism and police violence on But of course, the current threat that we face of violence largely led by white supremacist groups, who have felt largely emboldened by a number of Government leaders of these are things that Martin Luther King also warned us against, and said that you know if America really did continue to try to advance on the platform or legacy of racism and racial terror. That that could cause issues for more than just racial minorities. But the broader community that we see across this country and I think that's especially evident, of course, looking at just how tight security is around Wednesday's inauguration.

"martin luther king day" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM

"On this Martin Luther King Day. Um, interesting thoughts I've been watching, you know, reading on social media what people have to say. Way we agree and disagree about things is funny. Social media makes me laugh the anger and people that then get indignant about anger. One of the things that was pretty consistent about Doc. Dr King was His desire for peaceful protest, and there is a difference between being peaceful and being meek. I don't think anyone would say that Dr King was a meek man. He was humble, I think, but I think he was passionate about what he was doing. A couple of things about the civil rights movement that always struck me. I grew up in the South was born in Cleveland, but I grew up in the South. And so I witnessed what would be considered institutional racism or just maybe societal racism. There were unwritten rules where I was when I was a little kid. But I also played sports and on the athletic field. There was no racism. Honestly, I was I was, It was such a dichotomy that I watched, um How it didn't matter. How? What cover you were. If you were the best player on the team you played I've mentioned before being teammates Pop Warner team mates with Deon Sanders and Watching that young man watching that kid turn into the superstar that he became the Hall of Famer that he became, um and how well respected he was on the athletic field. And then I watched some disrespect off the field. It was pretty amazing. But what I learned from the civil rights movement and from the way Dr King did things was he saw things more as much is of a Christian duty is a pastor. As he did as an African American man. And what I mean by that is his disappointment that there weren't other white pastors in the South to join him. Um He was disappointed in them because of their faith, not because of their skin color. And I remember the battle. Why was too young for the civil rights reading about the civil rights movement? I was born in 1967. So I saw the aftermath and I didn't see the fight. But watching The fight within about whether there was going to be violent protests or whether it was going to be peaceful protests and there was the Malcolm X Group that that thought violence was going to be the only answer that if you are peaceful, nobody listens. But also if you look back At what the symbolism is. It was a horrible time when people were marching peacefully, and they were bit by police dogs. They were bitten and chaste. They were they were knocked down. And severely injured many times by water canyons from cannons from fire trucks and The other thing was the growing number of white people that were marching with them that it was very difficult in the South the way it was to break ranks like that, and to stand up for what was right, and there was more and more people that began to do that. And they saw the horrible treatment and remember this wasn't just about people's hearts. This was about the laws, you know different water fountains, different restaurants, different hotels. And to see the changes that we've made over the years because of the changes that were made by that movement were pretty remarkable to me. We have a long way to go in this country. There's no doubt anybody who thinks that we're all just fine. And there's no racism doesn't exist in the hearts of people are wrong. Um, but maybe on a day like this, we can pause to see how far we've come. You know, to have a guy. Like Ray Charles, who had to ride in a different bus, who had to stay in a different hotel who couldn't play in some of the same clubs. But then the state song Georgia is his version of that song all these years later, and what an honored person he was before his death. Um It happened because there were people that were willing to stand up and say Enough is enough. And You look around it at some of the things we ought to be proud of. On a day like this, where we're recognizing changes in the racial makeup and how we see people. Um, One of the shining examples here in our city is our police chief. She e think that she's the right chief for the right time for a lot of reasons, But this is a girl that grew up in Phoenix. She became a police officer in Phoenix. She worked her way up through the command staff of the Phoenix Police Department. She left and became a police chief in another city in Oxnard, California for five years. Then she came back. And then she's the police chief. When all of these protests begin to happen, and having a conversation with her one day I said, You have a unique perspective. You grew up in African American girl in Phoenix. You are an African American cop in Phoenix, and now you're an African American police chief in Phoenix, and she said, Let me out of fourth. I raised two African American sons in this town. The celebration isn't because of her skin color. The celebration is because she is the right person to be. The people accept her is the police chief. She wasn't hired because of her skin color. She was hired because of a resume. That today is, you know that's what Dr King always wanted was people to be judged for the content of their character? Not the color of their skin. We are seeing more and more of that,.

Congress Announces Willingness To Give Black Lives Matters Protestors Statue Or Holiday

"Weeks of nationwide protests bird by the police killing of George Floyd. Congressional leaders are finally taking action lawmakers in Washington today officially announce their willingness to give black lives matter protesters, statue, or a holiday or something for more. I'm joined by OPR Congressional correspondent Charles Dearborn Charles. Can you give us a little more context sure Leslie? We've seen sustained protests in all fifty states demanding. Demanding Accountability from those in power, and now Congress has heeded their call. Here's main representative Edward Knicks on how this all came to be. People around this nation are calling for dramatic change. I can assure you that we intend to meet this moment with the support. It deserves a nice memorial. Say or perhaps a national day of remembrance that Individual States can decide to declare an. An official day off work if they want. Wow, that's pretty impressive stuff. It is indeed if passed, it would be some of the most sweeping federal legislation to address racial inequality in decades. Nice to see them finally putting their money where their mouth is. So what stages the legislation at right now there is a bill currently being drafted, so the details are still being hammered out. Out One of the biggest decisions, obviously will be whether to give them a statue or a holiday. Here's an ex with more I want to say to my constituents in the country. We have heard your message. Loud and clear enough is enough, and we intend to show this building a statue of a white hand, holding a black hand or some black children, looking inspirational or something. But then again a day I probably wouldn't cost us as much. Maybe that's the way to go. That's terrific, so do we expect this lot of pass? Well? Of course, it will have to go through a Republican controlled Senate and several members of already been pushing to dilute the bill by providing only a small metal plaque, or just rolling the whole thing to Martin Luther King Day will these all sound like great options to me, but should we expect this to appease the protesters? Based on talking to several senators, the black lives matter members are going to be very excited about this big step, and this is probably the last will hear from them while and do we have any comment from any of these activists. Sounds good. Thanks for the report, Charles. That's OPR's channels Dearborn back with more right after this.

Everyone is still wrong about the Covington kids

"Classes over at Covington high school because of death threats because of bomb threats. No, I am not kidding. They've now had to cancel school today, and they had to cancel their basketball game which was scheduled for the next couple of days because of all the violent threats that are being made over a completely falsified video that the media pushed forward so the media over the weekend push for this videos. You'll recall from yesterday show, they push forward a video suggesting that Covington high school students surrounded an elderly native American Vietnam. Veteran and then began berating him yelling at him obstructing him. And all the rest turns out that was all ally. It was not true. The further video shows what happened is that. There were a bunch of black Hebrew Israelites cult members who were yelling, racial, sexual orientation slurs at the students, the students did not respond except by chanting their school chance at which point Nathan Phillips, this elderly native, American gentlemen, he decided to saunter into the middle of the high school students with some of his buddies pounding a drum and getting in the faces of some of the students the students did not react to that. And for this. The students were castigated they're now receiving death threats. There is eating bomb threats. They have been doc st-. I mean, I've spoken to a bunch of the students at this point. These are from my impression. Good solid kids. I see no evidence that they are racist. I see no evidence that they did anything egregious or wrong. And you're seeing commentary from folks on the left suggesting that one kid in particular, Nick Sandman, who's the one who you see in the video standing face to face with the native American guy that he was doing something wrong by smiling. So now a white guy smiling is race. Cest? That's how far we have come. So Martin Luther King day yesterday. People were talking about how a white kid smiling was racist. Because he happened to be wearing a maga- hat. You think maybe we've gone too far in this country in terms of polarizing people by way of race. It's pretty astonishing. We'll President Trump did the right thing yesterday. He tweeted out about Covington Catholic, he was he was watching Tucker Carlson show. Tucker did a great job of covering this issue last night on Fox News. And Trump tweeted out looking like, Nick Sanmen and Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgments proving out to be false smeared by media, not good but making big comeback new footage shows that media was wrong about teens encounter with native American at Tucker Carlson. That's great. I mean, I had recommended to the White House that President Trump actually tweet at Nic Sandman. Nice hat Nick wanna come to the White House. You remember Barack Obama did that with

Thank you, very very much for joining us. Good afternoon to you and congratulations on your time at Alabama. Noon. He was well, thank you for having math before we talk about Alabama. I wanna ask you because we just got through playing a clip in commemoration of this holiday honoring Dr Martin Luther King, and I know young people don't have the kind of recollection as some of us who were alive during Dr king's life. But but as a young person growing up in Montgomery, Alabama place that was very integral in Dr king's rise. As a minister, the he pastored a church there. What does this day mean to you? A lot of you know, mom, McCain was wasn't man whose bear quarter in and around Gherman, basically, you know, well from his fight facilities equalize Islam able to play football the grade school like Alabama, you know, he was a hero. And he soon America will occur lead. Like, and he also, you know, he died for freedom as well. Well, what an what an incredible and very poignant answer for someone who who grew up many years after Dr king had left Montgomery, but that's that's that's really very memorable answer. Well, MAC let me move on to your career at Alabama. Now that it's over. I'm sure a lot of memories are passing three your your mind. What stands out? There's out.

"But below that you have you have, you know, ole miss, South Carolina, Florida. These teams are better than they have been. I actually don't think they're going to get as many teams in the tournament this year as they did last you just because of the randomness. But really if you look around the league, with the exception of maybe Texas AM, you can make a pretty good case that every program in the league is on the way. And that is something that was not the case for a long time to programs were stagnant. Or on their way, down AM is is is going in the opposite direction. But the rest of these schools have either invested the resources or they have the coach to be good. And and for a long time. The league was Kentucky one other power. And then everybody else for many years. It was Florida occasionally Bruce pros, Tennessee. Well, now, you have Kentucky Tennessee, I think Florida and Auburn is a program a right there with them and a number of other schools in South Carolina went to a final four. So this league is on its way up. I think this year the league is probably the second or third best league in the country. And I think it has been a real good development for where the where the whole conference is going. Yeah. And they and then I won't quibble with Abbott a year ago. They beat North Carolina in North Carolina and the oh, yeah. That's but they just they have when they lost stands berry. Off the recruit. No agree. That's a good point. He he was well known as a recruiter majesty finally on Kentucky, though, as you as you parson in and try to figure this program out. Where do they need to be because last year they lost a little bit? And and the seating hurt and Calipari made a big deal about that. What what is your view right now as we Kansas coming up? That's a great opportunity. You win you beat Kansas. You you already have a win over North Carolina. That's certainly putting you in pretty good stead, isn't it? Yeah. We'll best case scenario is there's a regional this year. So if you're Kentucky what you'd really like to do is find a way to get to play the regional in Louisville because you basically get to play a home crowd. Go the final four right for that to happen. I think they can only lose a couple more games. I mean when you lost Seton Hall in Alabama. You lost your leeway. I think right now, they're probably a low two or three if there are low two or three I think they'll get they'll have a shot at the final four. I don't think they'll get to play in Louisville. I think the big thing for them though is just to keep getting better. I don't think anybody in college basketball is great except to do when they're clicking. But they don't always click. So I think, you know, the next teams behind Duke or probably Tennessee Michigan Gonzaga Kentucky's as good as those teams. So I think they have a chance to be right there at the end. And I thought I was prepared because I thought you were going to come on here grill me about dog nation, and you got the whole thing, and you didn't do it. So I appreciate it. Well, it'd be my final question. No. I just set myself up there for that. Well, no, you just I was I was snoozing. So you woke me up. What's the deal? Well, you know, they they Georgia offered any grand to be their office. Of course, we had a caller about that. Yeah. So doors offered Eddy grant to be their offense coordinator and can. And he turned it down Kentucky's offense coordinator and the Georgia people understandably did not want to be seen as having gotten turned down by Kentucky offense coordinator. So they got all their reporters to say it didn't happen in Georgia fans have just been angry and all these dogs nation people call, and it's been very funny to watch. Because I thought if you're Georgia. Why do you care you guys are above it all but they just have had some fans kind of lose their minds in the last couple of weeks because they lost their off into coordinator Tennessee and got turned back down by Kentucky's offense coordinator. And you're you're speaking of just dawn fans, not that website dog nation know that way..

And then to hold on when Auburn, you know, auburn's theory about beating you is if we play you tied for thirty five minutes, there's gonna be some stretch where we make four threes in three minutes, and we'll be and the thing about Kentucky if they made that stretch Auburn did but Kentucky had a fifteen point lead. When they did it. And that's why Kentucky was able to hold on. I thought it was a massive win for the team. And I think the team is clicking at the right time. They are playing really really well they've got five guys in the starting lineup all of whom can score. And I in Kentucky has had that very rarely. When all five dudes are really good scores. And I think that makes them very dangerous, and they're defending well Auburn scored eighty 'cause they hit Qatada threes. But Kentucky's actually defending very well, you begin to Morgan's Mississippi State, which is a good year. And then this weekend in Rupp K, you comes to town that has always the the centerpiece of the SEC big twelve challenge. Yeah. I have to say, I I'm a little frustrated with the SEC schedule makers. How is it the case that Auburn and LSU or not in the SEC big twelve talents ball like how do you not put our sex are third and fourth best team the converse? They're not in it. That makes no sense. And I don't know. I don't know a good question because every year to schools sit that out you pick those two. By the way. I'll be surprised if Kentucky ever sits it out. Yeah. Kentucky's never sit it. So I mean, if you want I understand take the bottom two teams in the conference in the free season. But that would not have included Auburn and LSU. Yeah. I don't I don't see Kentucky and Missouri that we can play to you know. I don't. So I I I don't get that. And then also the way get let me say this about LSU LSU might win the SEC. And it's for this reason the schedule is so unbalanced Kentucky plays Tennessee, Auburn, Mississippi State and Florida twice. That's crazy. Because Tennessee Auburn Mississippi State. They only played so the one and LSU doesn't play any of those schools twice LSU got the gift of all gifts on the schedule. So they have a really good chance of starting conference play eight or nine in old, and it's because they don't play any of the power teams till the back half. And they only have to play them. All one time LSU will wait. Got the gift from heaven in terms of schedule. Amac could you give me a few minutes? So I'm short on Kleenex is here. So we can all don't cry for Kentucky. Well, I mean, listen you. I'm sure you hear this on the football side all the time. But what here's the bad part? There have a hard time winning the regular season. 'cause that's the good part, though is their strength of schedule. When it comes for in the tournament is going to be really hot. And that's one of the things the counter to will way, no issues because you don't play any of those teams twice when you play him. You better win some of them 'cause your strength of schedule is not going be as good come selection Sunday. Mad overall. Let's talk about the SEC because you have been at the vanguard of talking about the resurgence of this league. You are all over last year when the league sent eight to the NC double A and had a nice run. What about this year? Love it. I mean, I think you have two teams maybe three but Kentucky and Tennessee and maybe over our final four contenders. But I think what makes the league different is what's right below it. I think LSU and Mississippi State are really good teams..

"And at one of the thing on the on the big twelve because it came up years ago when UCF Mitterrand or Houston believe where are they if anywhere on expansion? Nowhere. I think they're very comfortable at ten right now. You know, it was interesting in two thousand sixteen when they voted to explore expansion within like a week. Nobody actually wanted to expand. So, you know, talking about the tax in Texas ain't M-series being renewed. It's a lot of talk. That was actually a lot of a lot of pomp and circumstance. It was a dog and pony show. They weren't really ever going to expand in the way the big twelve is distributing money right now, which is third by clear margin behind the SEC in the big ten the way that they've gotten into the playoff through their model with the championship game. Now here in three of the last four years, the fact that Oklahoma and Texas are putting together top ten recruiting classes. And now they're putting players back in the first round of the NFL draft. I think you combine all that together. I think the big twelve is very comfortable with where it is. And all the focus right now is on the Pac twelve being in the words of David Boren, psychologically disadvantaged. With their problems being competitive both on the field and then off the field with distribution. And we talked briefly last week with you about what Jalen hurts means to Oklahoma me, Oklahoma, Oklahoma's already considered a threat next year. But just with a couple of days to digest his decision. Where are they now? I think they feel like they can make the playoffs Lincoln Riley actually, talked about with her yesterday said called him an old soul. He feels like he's talking to somebody older than him, which seems crazy, but Lincoln Riley is only as mid thirties Jalen arts, you know, he's been around college football forever. Now, they have a guy that is played in a ton of big games. He's going to bring a ton of big inexperience. He's not gonna be rattled when they play Texas in the Cotton Bowl. He's not gonna be rattled in the big tool championship game. And he's not rattled if they play Clemson or Alabama in the playoffs. So when you have a quarterback with that kind of confidence that kind of experience and then oh, by the way is extremely talented as well. They feel like they hit a home run this off season in bringing in a guy that is a championship caliber quarterback. And Jalen hurts. Jake trotter. Always great with his time. Thank you, Jake pleasure to visit with you on a number of issues. So if you were planning on going to the chicken ranch after the Texas game could be thank you very much. Much. We'll take a break. I agree. I saw you got it. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Talking some hoops here. We'll we'll have Matt Jones on in just a moment. Let's go right now to. Been in Harlan Carlin Kentucky. Hello. Then I Pol how you doing. We are doing great. Thank you very much. Thank you for the call. You bet. How about how about KFC going up to ninety? Tendencies really been amazing. You think they're only losses against Kansas. For your drugs. They they have done, right. This year. I agree. We're from Kentucky. We're big fans. White for that guy. Wouldn't you know, Tennessee and Kentucky? Thirteen Hank the third thing. Okay. Wow. Yeah. Start off yet is. But I I believe it's going to take us that long to mature to play with the team like that. But I believe we'll be ready. Well, hope so we'll ban. Thank you, very very much. We want to talk a little bit more about the cats big win over Auburn over the weekend. And of course, the number one team in the country, Tennessee, Matt Jones, joining us from chaos are met great Avalon. Great Bibi with you, sir. How's it going? It's going great. So first of all talk about Tennessee. I mean, we see this every once in a while. But you're Cessnas a basketball aficionado of the job that Rick Barnes has done. He's done a great job. You know, the the knock on him for many years as well. He can get talent. But he can't win with Kevin Durant. They only got in the second round and all that stuff..

"Thing. Paul last summer Christel Conti athletic director, Texas, he called his counterpart at Texas A&_M they had an opening for twenty twenty two twenty twenty three because they'll Hieaux state had an opportunity to play Notre Dame. And AM said we're we've already got Miami were booked up in the next ten years. And so then taxes schedule the home and home with Alabama coming up here in five years or so so I mean, there's a lot of talk about playing this game. Not a lot of action. So I don't think it's coming back anytime soon. Yeah. It does seem like just PR right now the president's talking about how great it would be. But the real realistically with Texas schedule and AM filled up for the most part, when's the most wins the ones the first opportunity they could even can contend with this possibility. Yeah. I think you're looking at twenty twenty eight maybe twenty twenty nine something like that unless somebody stepped in and made this a one off, you know, there was some talk about the Texas Motor Speedway. Hosts again, similar to that Virginia. Virginia Tech Tennessee game. We saw a couple of years ago at a speedway track like something like that maybe an Arlington, but I don't think a home and home is on the docket for anytime soon. Actually, there was somebody in the legislature in Texas who filed a Bill so withhold funding from the two schools until they decided to play one another. I don't think that has an attraction, but it does show a lot of people in the state of Texas. Tired of the talk and want to see action. There's really no way to force the issue unless somebody decides they're willing to play a second power five non conference game. And neither school particularly am. I think at this point playing in the SEC west has any interest in beating up the scheduled to that point. It makes no sense. Does it? I mean, if you're playing Alabama, and Auburn, and you may get Georgia on the other side, if you're AM one year or or Florida or Tennessee, why do you wanna see Texas when you probably already have a power five quality game. I mean, it just sounds like a lot of sound infuriates signifying nothing. Yeah. It is like, and you were talking about the playoff the four affectively effecting, schedule later told us goes to an eighteen playoff where the conference champs are guaranteed a berth in the playoff. There isn't really no sense in playing a second really tough non conference game against the power five opponents so again. Yeah, this is not happening anytime soon in in an ideal world, it would be fun. If we could have taxes in Texas eight and play each other as their non-confidence tough non conference game every year, Oklahoma and Nebraska played air tough non conference game against each other every year, but that's a fantasy land right now conference realignment as destroyed a number of rivalries, and they're not coming back anytime soon. Jay couple of other things. First of all is Texas really back. Yeah. I mean, they're not all the way they're not Vince young two thousand five back, but they're the closest day of been since they had Colt McCoy, and they're playing Alabama in the two thousand nine national championship. They're like a fringe playoff contender next year. I mean, I think they're in that conversation. They're not in the Alabama Clemson conversation of it. But they're like in the second or third to your back. And they've got one of the top quarterbacks coming in in the country coming back and same etlinger. Dave recruited, really well with stacking up these top five top ten recruiting classes. So that they're on their way. Now are they winning national championship and beating Clemson or Alabama in the next five years? I'm not so sure about that. But I mean who is in college football beating one of those two teams at this point. So I think that they are knocking on the door of being back. And I think that win over Georgia was significant in terms of them making a statement and really believing that they can play with anybody in college. Football..

"He hasn't. We believe the first five whole talked is tomorrow down at the senior bowl while Bill which I think will be very interesting again because Alabama has not acknowledged every tires that have knowledge and he's departures. There's just been no talk really period out of Alabama. And certainly there have been a lot of different stories that have come out of pus LUSA in the last two weeks. Whether it's some things that we wrote about Tosh where there was the story that Dan, you know, there's all these kind of crazy things it's being the a cuss goose and Davis hasn't acknowledged any of the publicly and tomorrow will presumably be the first time that he talks about any of this stuff. I they really interesting answers. We did see him in a helicopter the other day to Jackson high school. We did. And I think that's probably what he is. Putting a lot of his energy fours is, you know, recruiting which is certainly the the lifeblood I program during his time there, and you know, he's he's doing all in try to add more top players to try to fill that that are that have popped up since a few guys who maybe weren't expecting to go pro ended up deciding to we've Alabama early John as you know, we're talking to John tall to hear from dot com. You know trying to figure out saving is parlor game. Many people are involved in especially after a twenty eight point loss. People are trying to read into it. Meaning something is is this a tipping point is just an aberration. Is it is it is it just simply a bad game that that ended up a near perfect season. What's what's your best? Guess I mean, you talked a lot of people close to that program and around college football or any way to to try to hit this moving target and figure out what two weeks ago tonight meant. Yeah. I think I think that's a great question. I think that there's you know, there's definitely a lot of questions about what it means. And what's going on with Dave particular? I think that there is a growing perception. And I'm not saying this is accurate, but there's a growing perception around the college football world that, you know, take my decides to to hang up sooner than people expected, and I think that might be to some of what's happened recently. But I think that. In general. I think I mentioned this after from game. I think that he works really well off of disappointment. So I think he is probably just you know, in down trying to recruit the best of his abilities ties to build a staff on the fly. You know, really shaking up things at Alabama. But it's interesting in general talking to people in the college football world and just the way they talked about David and especially the last couple of weeks. It just seems like you know, that maybe he's just more perceptible to a downfall. Or just a general people just seem to sense, maybe a little bit more weakness around him. Then you've heard people talk about the past which I think is really interesting, which it's hard to skip that point when when you lose like he did. And then you get the stories that you've written that Feldman wrote the other day were were things that, you know, most people know are now being printed. In national and widely read publications. I I don't know if it's a paradigm shift or not I mean, no one no one wants to be the one guy who who writes Nick Sabin off. And then you have to sit there next year at the national championship game in New Orleans and watch Nick save and get that trophy. Do they? Exactly. I mean, nobody nobody wants to declare the dynasty is over. And I'm I don't wanna come even close to doing that. Because when you stop and think I mean, look at how much talent is still coming back. They still have to they still have the best group of wide receivers in the country. You still have multiple five star running back twenty five stars on defense. I mean, they're going to be one of the top three teams next year. And I would guess that based on betting odds and things like that that, you know, the odds on paper, it's probably that will get a rematch of the championship game between close at Alba in New Orleans..

"John tall, he's been covering the story the revolving door that is Nick Sabin coaching staff. John always great to have you on. So we're now about to close the fortnight two weeks ago. Alabama lost by twenty eight points. Quick question has the sun ever come out again in Alabama. If starting I think people are starting to come through with the case. Thinking against is that people are so obsessive recruiting to that. They can just kind of put their mind and interest for that. So it's starting to pull people through but had some rough weather here to the little pulled out from getting dreary. I think around the state of your speakers there. John hold on one second there. We're going to try to figure out how to turn your phone into a communicate of device as opposed to a Chick-fil-A drive through speaker may not be possible. But we are going to go out of our way to see if we can make that happen. Is that a is there? Some reason is it was cellphones. Nowadays. Does it is it dependent on where you are? Okay. Could they okay? Let me welcome back. John tall t to the program. John, by the way, your your your your big meal will be to thirty four police Turner, turn and go to to the drive through welcome back. Okay. So you were telling us about the mood and Alabama. Let me ask you this. Where are we on the revolving door better known as Nick saban's coaching staff? Yeah. I think it's starting to finally pull down a little bit. They conveyed multiple hires than the last week or two, you know, we're still having school itself hasn't confirmed any of these things, but you know, we know that they've they're hiring before NATO's are often divine. Coach Kyle flood Iran's best coach in Charles huff. And then defensive side is we know that tasha pool is gone that they're bringing in Charles Kelley from fantasy in a secondary type role and bringing in an old standby thousand theory who was most recently at Florida, but I'll just a coach at Alabama before that. So the start the sponsor starting to run in a little bit. But there's still potential for for more hires to be made and also for more departures to happen. I I wouldn't be shocked it off there is, you know, one to more coaches who we've the staff that are currently employed at Alabama. I mean, there is a lot of a lot of speculation down there. One name that. Came up is Bo Davis who left a couple years ago due to NCW issues, and there continues to be speculation that he could ultimately return anything on that. Based on what we've been here. I would be surprised if so ends up back at Alabama not that there wouldn't be potentially mutual interest there. But I think for you know, some of the reasons you you just mentioned there. I would be surprised if ended up back at Alabama. But I know that been certainly thinks very highly of unit. Great job at Alabama and has done a good job and the lion. So it would make sense. And I understand why people, but I just point. I don't think it's going to happen. And you know, Kyle flood certainly had his issues with the NCWA since Sark. We we we know about is is there now it's not it's not over yet. And there could be as you mentioned another change or two once we get past the first Wednesday in February. But what would your snapshot analysis be looking at the staff and projecting. What it will look like in a couple of weeks. I mean, what does it tell you if anything about Nick saban's mindset? Right. Well, I I think back to the conversation that you and I had the day after camps, but kind of detail on us that you know, after the previous year's national championship make same invaded a real point to get younger specifically to help with recruiting, and my feeling and other people feel about college football is that he went too far that direction. I think you're seeing here is a course correction not to the people. He's hiring. They're not good recruiters. But you're getting more experienced coaches who are probably better known as the developers the positions. You know, Kyle flood is a well known off the coach has a lot of background there..

It is an absolute treat to sit in for Mandy Connell. I'd listened to her almost every day. I think she's fantastic and very very similar terms of being kind of conservative libertarian kind of sarcastic. But about me, I am a weekly Denver post columnist. I also teach some bright some Colorado native a big fluffy German shepherd Chow Chow named bacon. And I love Llamas. It's just love him. I ride horses, but in my heart of hearts, a really a really love Llamas. If you've got a llama farm, I feel free to call and give grant you're here. You're farm phone number. So I can come out and visit your Llamas because could use a little Alama love love Llamas. Anyway, we've been talking about on this Martin Luther King day talking about identity politics, and how that is such an affront to what Martin Luther King was all about which is the content of your character. It is not about it's not about the color of your skin. It's not about your sex is not about, you know, your sexuality is any of that kind of stuff. It's really about the content of your character, and with really gotten away from that as a society tribal, politics identity, politics, and you know, and it's not always on the on the left some of it's on the right to it is this idea of us versus them. And it it frankly, it's a problem. And that's about it some related subjects. We've got the women's March. I didn't go. I had cleaned house that day so wasn't gonna work out for me. But I have looked at the the posters that people were carrying around. And the placards not exactly inclusive lot of hate there. So probably wouldn't have been the place for me. Also looked at the treatment of these young people. They they were wearing they were wearing the red maga- hats made great again, hats, they were in Washington DC for the March for life. There's just standing around and this other group starts hurling insults at them. They start singing their school song casino there. Fifteen trying to figure out what to do in the midst of these people hurling nasty words at them. Then this Indian guy comes starts beating a drum in the face of the young, man. I think he thought that that group maybe was mocking the native Americans. I don't know I can't speak for his motives. They may not have been bad motives. Let's put it that way. But then they always beating the drum in this poor kids face the kid just kind of sits there with a smile. People interpreted that smile as being a smirk. When in fact, I think it was. Nervousness. You've got some nasty people calling. You a bigot in a cracker and words, I can't use on the air. You've got a native man planet Trump within like a couple of inches of your face. How would you look and so kudos to the kids for not fighting back for simply standing their ground and just trying to be pleasant and get through it that true story, though, that wasn't the story that aired thirty six hours ago CNN and all the powers that be were saying, oh, look at these nasty, boys. And how disrespectful they were to this native, man. We'll turn the native man went up and beat the drum and the guys in the kid's face. Not the other way around and bit by bit CNN CNN has walked back. Some other folks have walked back. There's a few people like John Cusack. And other starlets who still are kinda stuck on the original false narrative, and they're still tweeting about it. So if you know, John. You know, Elizabeth Warren, you might wanna touch base with them. Just call them up on their cell phone or text him. And just be like, dude, the real video came out. And it's not what it seemed. So we were talking about these related subjects and I wanted to hit on the Gillette commercial. And then I wanna get to some some calls starting with you, Sarah, that's three zero three seven one three eight five eight five can also do you can tweet at any time as long as you're nice at Christopher Kafer. Also have a public Facebook page as well. We're post my stuff. I do a little wine writing. Yeah. That's a real burden. I got to Denver front range winery. Sometimes they go up in the mountains and drink the wine talk to the owners, eat the fondue, and then write about it. Yeah. I get almost paid them them being westward to make that happen. But I post my stuff up there make some comments. And so yeah, definitely you can check me out after the show for sure or during if you can multitask. But I was thinking about the Gillette commercial. So we we've had this toxic masculinity commercial. I know everybody's seen it talking about how they decide they were gonna take on toxic masculinity and show sort of boys being bad men being bad. And then a group of men standing up against the male toxic toxic masculinity. And being the good guys. I didn't think Marshall was horrible. I I do think though that it sort of made toxic masculinity the norm and good guys, as the exception. I would say this the opposite. I would say that good guys are the norm and the toxic men are the exception. And what made we think of it is, you know, when you're at work, and you get this memo that says it has been brought to our attention that people have been sleeping under the desk. And we heard to tell you that when you're at work you need to be awake. When you get those memos. Don't you get a little irritated? You're like, dude. One dude with sleeping at his desk. The rest of us are awake for our shift. So why not talk to the dude and not blame us all act like we're all sleeping on the job. So we all needed to get the memo that's kind of how I took the Gillette ad. And I kinda think about like what if it were what if it were a razor commercial for women's razors. And we decided to talk about toxic femininity as though that were the norm and good women were the exception. How would I take that commercial? So now, the commercial would start, and it would have and you know, there are some bad women acting badly. Every once in a while there are good women acting badly. But you know, what I mean gossiping drama that kind of thing, you know, there are women out there that do that. And I think I've spent my entire adult life avoiding those women and fortunately, I've managed to do that. But you know, there's the women say that the women that use their legs and their boobs to get what they want the one say gossip and undermine other women. I would call that toxic femininity, and I would say that it is relatively rare in my life because I have those people, but it is it is out there. What if there was a commercial for Gillette women's razors that had, you know, feminine toxic toxic femininity say. Feminine toxicity is kinda the same thing. But and it acted as though, you know, those of us who are good good women that we were in the minority, and that we just needed to stand up to the majority of the toxic women. What I buy the razor. I'm I'm going to go with no on that one. I I would not buy the razor because normal women are the norm irritating. Women are the exception. Good men are the norm at least in my life. In my experience. Bad men, are the exception. And that's why I reject that ad. In fact, I just reject identity politics altogether. I think it's pretty lame. Hey, sarah. Thanks for waiting like an hour to get on the air. Hi, krista. How are you? I'm doing great. Thanks for calling today. Yes. I'm just love listening to your show. And I'm glad that you're back on the radio. Have your own show. I think women can build each other up without have seen to be able to anyone.

"Monday. Martin Luther King day. Gary Lewis with S T, aim seventy Tucson's most is stimulating talk. Don't forget Goodrich. Let me related a story yesterday. At my house, while making my son breakfast, I had the Thuban and it was watching Maria Romo on Fox News Sunday futures on Fox News channel, and she's other Democrats. My son said dad, what's a democrat. I gave a great answer. I can brainwash my own kid. But it was I am brainwashing. Left choice up to him. Works every time. So anyway, we'll we'll get into that. However, it's going to be sixty nine and a nice considering it's like it says it's seven right now in New York City, but with the wind chill. It's I think it's like fifteen under fifteen below. That must suck. That's terrible. For them. Nice here though. Now, there's a story in the daily caller about all these Russia's stories. The media got wrong, you know, these I know these. Member when the former ABC news reporter Brian Ross like he got like the fifty thing wrong reported that Michael Flynn was about to testify at Trump ordered him to make contact with the Russians stock market fell. And then ABC came out of like, yes. Sorry. Wrong about that. Whoops. Whoops, CNN accused. Don, jR of WikiLeaks clues Offman daily caller. They put a weekly Email, Don, jR to give him access to documents. Of course, CNN with these sources. They gave him the wrong dates ups. Don, jR, actually got an Email with access to the stolen dachshund September fourteen twenty sixteen after they had already been released publicly. So they get I mean, there are so many more stories over and over and over CNN got a good one for saying that Anthony Scaramucci is under investigation. They they apologize on the air about that is all these things CNN has been wrong over and over and over about anyway. You wanna hear this is one of the ultimate right here. Another Senator besides Kamala Harris today, she's running for president joining Kirsten gillibrand and. What exactly have these two geniuses ever done? Can you tell me anything, do you know, when children was a congresswoman she actually voted to secure the border with with fencing? She did. She politics for over the weekend. But before that she was on with. Barack Obama one of his biggest fans Martha Raddatz ABC news this week. The, you know, the Martha Raddatz is invite or radical was married invited Obama to her wedding. That's how tight they were. So anyway, ran asked ask Kirsten gillibrand about the BuzzFeed story you want to hear the ultimate over there Goodrich. This is this is insane. But this is what happens despite evidence telling you that a story is fake still not fake because they hate Trump so much listen to this report is highly concerning Martha it just shows more evidence that perhaps this present did obstruct Justice. It shows that even though the special counsel. Martha it raises a question in my mind that is very serious. And so what we need is Muller to be able to finish his investigation. One of the things that I'm most concerned about is that Senator McConnell will not let a bipartisan Bill come to the Senate floor to allow us to protect that investigation. What the hell is she talking about the BuzzFeed report genius? And Muller said it's garbage make sure he cannot be fired prematurely, and why would Trump firearm after he just said this report is a bunch of bunk. It's not accurate and the law says, it can only be fired for great questions of rats would have asked them. And so what our Bill does is it goes to a judge. So a judge could make an in camera decision about whether this was done properly and preserve all the evidence. So we have to protect the Muller investigation. We need the facts. And so this just got that investigation is. I mean, even Martha's like they just see the special counsel said it was. Well, it doesn't matter. It just shows a pattern pattern of what it's not accurate. I mean, you've got one more time report is highly concerning Martha it just shows more evidence that perhaps this present did obstruct Justice. It shows that even though the special counsel. Martha it Rayton. Yeah. Really quick. Let's play number one. If you don't mind, I don't know. I'm what I'm sorry number with with number six, Trump addressed the BuzzFeed story. They're not crazy though. You just heard this nuts Jila brand. It shows is a pattern of bad behavior. Even though it's not true doesn't matter. I mean, it's. Anyway, listen to the president asked us asked about the guy that won't talk. He's not open. He's a dictator. He talks to the media so much asking answering every single question just like a dictator would he was asked about the BuzzFeed story. Here we go..
