Is Russia a Godless Country?
"Says Charlie, you call Russia godless. Under Putin active churches in Russia have gone from 7000 to 40,000. That doesn't sound very godless to me. Look, Mike, I hate to break it to you. Russia is one of the most atheist countries in the world, that very well might be true. But Russian atheism is a very, very strong thing. And in fact, you look at religion in Russia, you very well might be right about a revival in Christianity of which I highly doubt in some sense, but the amount of atheists or the amount of non religious people in Russia is a very considerable part of the population. Extremely considerable. And then he says, with all due respect, you sound like McCain, Graham Pelosi and Schumer. Yeah, I don't know about that. I don't think McCain Graham Pelosi and Schumer are trying to tell you to have an alliance with Russia. Listen more carefully. So we've been against all that nonsense proxy war stuff in Ukraine.
Who Would Make a Great Supreme Court Advocate?
"Just because you've watched so many Supreme Court arguments, you know, so many of the justices, you know, so many of the legal people. If you had to recommend a Supreme Court advocate today, someone called you up and their company is on the line, they have to argue before the Supreme Court, who would it be? I guess it would probably be Paul Clement. You and I said the same thing. I got asked that question a couple of years ago. And I've never met Paul Clement or spoken to him, but I hit Paul Clement. Tell people why. Well, because he's just if he weren't such a nice and intelligent and good guy, I would say that he was an idiot savant of an advocate. I mean by that, I don't mean that he's an idiot. I mean that even when he was a baby advocate, he came to the Justice Department with John ashcroft for whom he had worked on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think. And he was in his young 30s and Ted Olson was the solicitor general and had just won Bush versus gore for president Bush by then president Bush and ashcroft, I think, actually wanted Paul to be solicitor general and the compromise was that he would be deputy, which he was for four years, and then he became solicitor general on his own. But as Ted also would say, Paul is just an amazing advocate. And he is not a, you know, when he worked for the government, he represented the government. When he worked for the Catholic Church, he represents the Catholic Church. Do I think that is closer to an approximation of his views? Yes, I do. But he was a just a bang up advocate for the government. And so was Ted Olson. They both represented they both defended the McCain feingold law. And one in the Supreme Court, and it fell apart years later, and they represent different interests now that they're in private practice, but that didn't stop them from being the best advocates possible for their client at the time and their client at the time was the United States government. You just named two of the four of the greatest Supreme Court advocates of my generation, the other two being the now chief justice John Roberts, and the fourth being an it'll come to me. I just forgot his name. And there are four. And they were always, I get calls, and when the chief justice was in private practice at Hogan, I would say go get him. And now when I get calls, I say go get Paul Clement because Ken Starr judge Starr is no longer practicing. They work great Supreme Court advocates because they just are at ease and I bring that up because of your Walter dellinger story on page one 30 and God bless the late Walter dellinger, who is a great man in the law, with whom I disagreed often. But he mixed up the names of justices, O'Connor and Ginsburg in his first argument. That's over practicing. Nina, that's don't you think that's what it was. He was overprepared he had thought about it so much. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up. I'm not going to mix them up, and he mixed them up, and they were not happy. I don't even know if it was that. First his first argument, it just was maybe the first time he faced the two of them on the court. You're right. You're right. And he said, I mean, I've done this. I've said North Carolina when my script says South Carolina, I don't know what happens. In a less than ladylike expression, it's a brain fart. Yeah. Happens to me like on a daily basis. Nina totenberg. I mean, on a daily basis, three hours of radio you're going to do it, your buddy Steve never makes a mistake inscape. And I really hate that. But I make mistakes every day. Let me go on now to what the essence of dinners with Ruth is. And I remind you of the Frank luntz role, we've got to say the title of dinners with rouge 7 times for people to remember dinners with Ruth and order dinners with Ruth. And I want to tell my Friends on the center right in the right, this book will charm you and inform you and you'll be better for having read it. I said that most recently about Evan Thomas's one, Evan is a friend, one is about justice O'Connor and as dinners with Ruth does for justice Ginsburg one did for justice O'Connor and together they do what is only very infrequently done they give you a glimpse of the real world of the Supreme Court. And you know what? So much better than I do. I know some of the justices, but not as friends. I mean, colleague, John Roberts, an old colleague, chief just a justice Thomas and Stephen Breyer sat for interviews. And justice Gorsuch had been spent time with, but I don't know them like you know them. And you are a great storyteller. And you humanize them, but especially judge justice Ginsburg. Did you intend that when you began?
Is the Trump Movement Like Syria's Kurds, an Ally for Christians?
"Have the joy of speaking with our friend John mirac John. You have an article at stream dot org. People need to know to go to stream dot org and find your article. The title is, is the Trump movement like Syria's Kurds and indispensable ally for Christians. Right. So I was telling the story of the devastation of the Christians of Iraq after the American invasion in 2003. In Syria, something similar seemed likely to happen. The Arab Spring was going to bring democracy to Syria was going to overthrow its evil dictator and the American liberals and American neoconservatives were all gung Ho excited that it was going to overthrow this Arab dictator. Only problem was, the people were going to overthrow it, were radical Islamists linked to Al-Qaeda, John McCain lied to us about that. He flew over there and said, I vetted them. They're moderate rebels. They're moderate, moderate. During the 2016 presidential campaign in the foreign policy debate among Republicans out of all those like 12 or 13 Republican candidates. All of them but three wanted to shoot down Russian planes to help these Al-Qaeda linked Islamist jihadis take over a country with a million Christians. And of course, ethnically cleansed them like they had in Iraq.
Ned Ryun: 'That's Not an Interview, That's a Tongue Bath!'
"Let's know what Jake tapper asked. You just asking a question of Mark Kelly this past weekend. I think it's cut 19. Do we have cut 19 guys? By the way, Ron Johnson, don't forget Ron Johnson, Wisconsin. I want to ask you about your Republican opponent in the upcoming Arizona Senate election. He says Democrats want to quote change the demographics of the country. He is openly embraced Donald Trump's election lies. He has the support of a lot of openly racist notorious individuals. The Arizona Republican nominee for governor says the President Biden isn't a legitimate president. She says she wants her democratic opponent in jail, the Republican nominee for Secretary of State in Arizona. He's a self proclaimed member of the oath keepers. You hold the seat once filled by John McCain, who is a conservative, but he did work across the aisle. He was very critical of voices like the ones I just mentioned, not them specifically, but that kind of what he would call Looney Tunes. Wow. I mean, listen to this. That's something to interview. That's a tongue bath. He's going up there. He's doing the work for them. He's doing the work for them of market on the market. Yes, Jacob, you know, so you get tapper out there to say all the negative stuff and then Kelly gets to come out and pretend like he's this moderate. It's a great game. It's a great scam. But you got to understand Republicans need to understand this. By the way, I do upload say Ron Johnson over in Wisconsin. You need Wisconsin because these are the states, the same key states. You look at the overlays, Georgia, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, in all of these are states that you need for 24 net. Well, I was going to say, first of all, Jake tapper and the definition of corporate propagandist example a definition is Jake. I mean, that was ridiculous, but he really is the norm. Obviously he's not the exception how most of these corporate propagandists are. They're out there to actually fight for one team, not the other. They're not interested in finding the truth or asking hard questions. They're interested in amplifying a certain narrative for their team. And I think once you start to realize, I don't even want to call them mainstream media anymore, Jack. Their corporate propagandists, when they are seen as such, you understand the game they're playing.
Congressman Troy Nehls Shares His Reaction to Liz Cheney's Defeat
"Let's start if we can draw with the with the news of the day. Liz Cheney. Now, I gotta say, you know, Debbie and I were talking this morning and Debbie goes, she goes, I don't even know how she got 30% of the vote. But I said, Debbie, wait a minute. You have a woman who has been elected three times. She got what 80% last time. She is a part of a dynastic family, the Cheney family, kind of like the McCain's in Arizona. And she's probably over time met almost all of our constituents. So this woman has gone to great lengths to offend her own constituency. Talk about your reaction to the race and a little bit of why somebody might do that. Well, thank you for having me. First, I couldn't be more excited to see Liz Cheney get fired from her position. I mean, I am very, very upset with the way Liz Cheney has handled herself over the last few years, especially as it related to a former president Trump as it relates to impeachment. You know, she was one of those and now 8 out of ten of those that voted for impeachment are not coming back. So I think that this is a true, it just lets the American people know when the Republican Party know that Donald Trump is the leader of our party and when you go out there and you belittle him each and every day as she has done on this January 6th committee, she needed to go. I don't think that Republican Party has done enough. I think we should have kicked her out of our conference for belittling Donald Trump as much as she has. So I think when you go up against the leader of our party and you say those derogatory things for the past several years, I think the voters spoke loud and clear. They said we don't want Liz Cheney back with the establishment we need to fight back in the establishment hasn't done that. And it's the mega movement.
Is This the End of the Cheney Political Dynasty?
"Been a couple families that have ruled American Republican politics over the last couple decades. The Bush family, the McCain's, the rockefellers, the romneys, and the cheneys. They all get along very well, and there's pockets of this country, teton county, Wyoming, otherwise known as Jackson all Wyoming. Can he bunk port Maine? That just seemed to be dominated by that type of Republican Aspen Colorado being in other place as well. Will the McCain establishment in Arizona suffered a major loss two weeks ago. It is hard to see how they'll ever be able to get back to political relevancy in Arizona. Top and bottom all throughout the ballot. The bushes have suffered loss after loss can Paxton soundly defeated. Bush in the attorney general primary race. And tonight, you very, well, might see the end of a political dynasty as far as elected office goes until she runs for Congress in Virginia, which is really her home seat, which I think she'll do very soon. Liz Cheney, running in a primary in Wyoming against Harriet hagerman. One of the most important races of 2022 until the midterms is happening tonight. If
Why Did Meghan McCain Block Todd Starnes on Twitter?
"Chad McCain was a conservative. How dare you? Oh, really? Well, why would he hire a leftist like Steve Schmidt to run his campaign? Steve Steve Schmidt, the founding member of The Lincoln Project, a former McCain campaign manager. Also, a political analyst for MSD and C? That's exhibit a let's talk about exhibit B Nicole Wallace. A former senior campaign adviser, she was the one who handled Sarah Palin. She was the one responsible for literally bludgeoning Palin in the back with a political knife. And what is she doing now? She's one of the lady host on MSD and C. But the real reason she blocked me is because you see, we have a mind like a steel trap. Here at the Todd stern's radio program, ladies. So we don't forget anything here. And that's why she blocked me. You see, misses Dominic, Meghan McCain. Misses Dominick, she blocked me because I reminded the nation about her daddy's most egregious sin. Would he betrayed every single one of us. He had the power in his hands to kill ObamaCare. And while the cameras were rolling on C-SPAN, what did he do? He looked up at that C-SPAN camera, and he put his, he put his hand in the air. With his thumb exposed, and then he did the big thumbs down. A big blank you to America. That's what he did. All I was doing was asking misses Dominic to explain her daddy's political strategy. But you see, this is what the establishment thinks about all of us. You vote for Donald Trump, you're an irredeemable deplorable. You vote for Donald Trump, you're a Neanderthal.
Meghan McCain Calls MAGA Conservatives 'Neanderthals'
"So here's misses Dominick. I want to read to you what she wrote on her Twitter account. Hell of a strategy to whatever the majority voting hell of a strategy to win over the majority voting block of Arizona independence in a general election. Now, she would have stopped there, that would have been fine. It was a valid point. She's talking about, we've got to unite the Republicans in Arizona, right? Then she turns around and she does exactly what she's accusing Carrie Lake of doing. Here's what misses Dominic Meghan McCain said. I know she thinks she's governor already. But you have to win over more people than just cpac, maga Neanderthals to actually win a general election. So misses Dominic pulled a Hillary Clinton, you know, the basket of irredeemable deplorables. And she calls all of you people out there, all you conservatives maga Neanderthals. Now I just want to say something. It's offensive that she would call call people like you and me. Those kinds of words. But I'm not surprised, because she's a nasty person. Her father was a nasty man. Yes, I know. We're not talking about his wartime service. We're talking about his political service. I honor everyone who serves in our military. But that doesn't give John McCain a pass for all of the things he said and did to hurt conservatives. And so I pointed out, she was talking about strategy. And I just asked Meghan McCain, what was her strategy? What was her daddy's strategy? When he betrayed Republicans and conservatives on the ObamaCare repeal. And she blocked me. She didn't even have the guts. She didn't have the courage to even answer the question. It wasn't
So What Has Meghan McCain Actually Done?
"McCain is a very mean, very unhappy, very mean spirited person, and I knew this working I didn't work directly with her at Fox, but I heard the stories. It's just not she's not a very pleasant person. And that comes across on TV. You saw that. Remember when remember when she was on what the view with the squawking magpies? She's not a very sympathetic character. And the reason why is, what is she done? Aside from being the offspring of the late senator John McCain, what has she done? I don't think she's done that much. She got married to Ben Dominique, who is the, what the founder of the federalist or one of those conservative things. And I got a lot of blowback because I called her in my peace grace maker. I called her misses dominance. I didn't call her mega McCain. I was just trying to be polite and cordial. Oof. Misses Dominic. So anyway, you have Carrie Lake and she's out there saying that she put a stake through the heart of the McCain machine. What is she talking about there? Well, she's talking about the establishment. She's talking about these establishment Republicans, who hate conservatives, and every time they get elected, they turn their backs on conservatives. But they embrace conservatives during the election cycle because the establishment guys can't get elected without our votes. That's what Kerry Lake was trying to say.
Tyler Bowyer of Turning Point Action Unpacks Last Night's Elections
"I'm joined by Tyler Boyer. Runs turning point action is a great job. He's also the committee man for the state of Arizona. He were up to like 5 a.m. last night. It was a long night, but it was a fun night. Boy, there's a lot to unpack, but let's start with just the top line news. First, let's go from east to west. Michigan Tudor Dixon won, two open doors. Very exciting candidate. Yeah, tutor, we actually know pretty well. She's actually been a big supporter of turning point for a long time. So we're really excited to form a rap host. Former Rafa's wonderful. And yeah, I think that you saw some of that carryover too. I mean, Michigan is a Trump state. Clearly. Because John Gibbs. This is the other one we want to talk about. We had absolutely on if you looked on paper 20 years ago and you saw a candidate like John Gibbs, you'd be like, the guy has no shot, right? Yep. And today it's a different world where the electorate is paying a lot more attention. And Peter Meyer and his whole gang of like just do whatever you want and don't care about the Republican Party. Those days are over clearly. Well, they are over. He lost. Yeah, and so Peter Meyer and voting for impeachment. Super snake. It's more than that though. I mean, some people are talking about, we'll talk about Meghan McCain's tweet today. We'll get to Arizona. We're going to get to what we'll get there, but the establishment, what they don't understand and what they are really dealing with right now is they haven't worked with the Republican Party for years. They haven't cared about the Republican Party. They haven't cared about the grassroots. And what we're seeing is this whole revival of this real grassroots movement, something that you saw, you know, like in the 70s, really start to cause the Reagan revolution. And I think that's where we're at right now,
Dinesh Unpacks the Arizona Primary Election Results
"Now back to Arizona, where the Trump back candidate, this is Blake masters. Easily won, and so he now becomes the GOP candidate to face the incumbent democratic senator Mark Kelly. Very interestingly, Mark fincham, a big, a big proponent of 2000 mules, and somebody who is focused on the issue of election fraud. This is why the left calls them an election denier. Election denier. These days of you exposed fraudulent election denier. I think it's just a strategy somewhat similar to the mafia. I remember when you go after the mafia, I'd be like, this is prejudice against Italian Americans. You're implying that every Italian American is a crook and a criminal. No, we're not implying that. We're just going after the crooks and the criminals in the same year. This election denialism is supposed to be some kind of an epithet that's supposed to scare people. Well, to the degree that it means going after election fraud and protecting free elections, there's nothing wrong with being an election denialist. We're really fraud denialists if you want to put it that way. Anyway, Mark fincham wins the Republican Secretary of State nomination. And now we turn to the governor's race and here's Meghan McCain. This is an early on yesterday. She goes, wow. Lake is getting crushed so far. Incredible. Everybody, everybody, better turn to prime time. If this lunatic loses, she's gonna go absolute insane on live TV, like one for the books, make Trump look normal insane. So you can see, you know, Meghan McCain is starting to glow. She's like, we got the McCain family. We put all this money in, you know, the candidate running against Lake is married to a multi millionaire if not a billionaire, so the outspend carry Lake. Incomes, Mike Pence. So a lot of it was at stake here because in some ways the Republican establishment is also, I don't know if grooming is the right word, but there's sort of grooming Pence. And in order to groom pants, you gotta show that the Pence endorsement can carry a rival to carry Lake all the way to the nomination. And so not only that, but the former governor Doug ducey also strong endorsement of Karen Taylor Robson and it was looking sort of tricky for Carrie Lake for a while they carry like was behind most of the day yesterday, I guess partly because they had counted the mail in ballots first, but then when the day votes came in from yesterday itself, Carrie Lake surpasses Karen Taylor Robson. I don't think she's been officially declared the winner, but to me, this is important on two counts first. It's because it shows the maga takeover of the GOP. Carrie Lake represents the maga wing of the party, not to say the Republican establishment has no strength. They were able to make this much closer than many people thought. But second, Kerry Lake is focused on the election integrity issue. She's been all over 2000 mules. In fact, one of the most vocal and eloquent defenders of 2000 mules, even in hostile TV environments. And so it's fantastic to see her get across the finish line. I think she'll be a formidable candidate going into November.
Josh Kraushaar and Hugh Discuss Kyrsten Sinema's Future
"Focus on senator sinema for our remaining time, Josh crush hour. And you can follow Josh at Josh crush hour on Twitter. It's now no longer hotline Josh's moved over to axios. And Jim van der Hayes very happy with himself for grabbing Josh crush hour. Josh senator sinema established herself as a successor to McCain. His iconic moment is the thumbs down on the attempt to repeal ObamaCare. She spent a lot of political capital, grabbing that middle ground. She will give it up. She will forfeit it if she hits the second iceberg. You can run into one iceberg in the Senate and took off the base, but then if you run into the other iceberg and pass a tax and spend Bill, you've left yourself sinking. And what do you think are the chances she goes along in caves to the left here? Well, look, she's got covered from Joe Manchin now. So Joe Manchin is up in 2024 as well. So I think politically speaking, I think she may try to negotiate the changes to the bill. She's been a longtime foe of the carried interest provision that then this legislation that there may be some change that she requires and it'll get whittled out if she ultimately has the leverage right now. But she had to worry about a democratic primary too. Right now, if she was on the ballot in Arizona, probably lose in a primary. She's in good shape in the general. She's got a lot of independence, even some Republicans would support her. But I think she's going to spend some of that political capital on the right or in the middle and try to shore up her standing among the liberals who have been human mad at her in Arizona. I have a hard time seeing how she comes out against this. You have all the moderates in the house, even the progressives, having the candidate they're going to support this when it gets to the lower chamber.

"He and others would like even more restrictions and credited Giffords and families like her own whose lives have been altered by gun violence for helping to make it happen.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor Reacts to Sen. Graham's 2017 Russia Speech
"Colonel, I want to play cut 72. It reinforces something you said where the west was the one that was pushing towards the border of Russia. This is Lindsey Graham and John McCain and Lindsey Graham giving a rather enthusiastic speech saying, we're going to take the fight to Putin. We're going to go straight to the border. We're going to play offense. Play cut 72. Your fight is our fight. 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington. And we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price. I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win. Colonel, your reaction. This was very dangerous, obviously. And they had a receptive audience unfortunately in Ukraine given its tragic history. And I think this actually has its roots in the 1990s in Bosnia Herzegovina and then subsequently in Kosovo and the attacks that we launched against the Serbs, which were aimed ultimately to eject Russia for all intents and purposes from the Balkans and Europe to marginalize Russia. Russia was weak. We were strong and we made no secret of our desire to marginalize them as a power. All of this is connected. And it's unnecessary. I couldn't understand why we even continued to maintain forces in Europe once the wall came down because there was no threat from Russia and frankly today there isn't one when the president of Finland was asked why he wanted to join NATO. He made it very clear that he didn't feel as written by Russia in the least. And I don't think that's the case with anybody right now in Europe to truly understand contemporary Russia.

If Not for Donald Trump, Roe v. Wade Would Still Be Intact
"John zamira. You were just making the point, which I've made in the past. If it were not for Donald Trump, roe V wade would have not been overturned. If it were not for Donald Trump, Kavanaugh would not have made it through, the nonsense, the evil lies that they put up against him. He would have been forced to withdraw his nomination even though these were totally unsupported lies. They would have said, well, it's the good of the country. That's what the Republican establishment, the rhinos, the so called moderates. That's what they exist for. They are surrender buckets. It is their job when the Democrats start cheating at basketball to lose gracefully to the globe products, like the Washington generals used to. It is the job of Republicans like George Bush and McCain and Romney and Adam kinzinger and Liz Cheney. Their job is to turn over our institutions and our power and our wealth in our country to our enemies in a gracious way. They are the Vichy government that Hitler put in charge of France. They are there to pretend to represent us and pretend to protect us while in fact enforcing the Nazis will on us and making us feel like they're on our side.
"mccain" Discussed on The Final Furlong Podcast
"You can drop the mic, show some definitely not spoken to my wife, filters your. For you. It has to be said, it's a massive transformation this year. Last season was a bit of a struggle. But this season, the first trainer did a hundred winners in the UK. To do that, at the start of the season, when you were setting your aspirations, could you have envisaged that you would beat the might of Henderson, nickels, skeleton, the might of runners that they have. And be the first in the UK to a hundred. No, definitely not. And that's the baffling part of the whole thing, to be honest. And when you say about last year being a sort of last year, it was a step back in the right direction. We had the COVID so we couldn't raise for a while and so on. We had everybody knows a history. We had a decimated team a few years ago and it's been a case of slowly and gradually building back up the numbers of horses we had in training and then once the numbers are back up, then improving the quality quietly and I'm very lucky I trained with a lot of good people and is it surprised about this panty winners at this point? Yes, is it a 5 that we're going this way no not really because I've been fantastically supported by people and surrounded myself with some very good people as well and the better struggled with this year is we've not pushed at all we've not chased winners we've not been driving to have winners every week and that's it it's just flowed beautifully. The touch would have been healthy all year and we've arrived at this point without feeling on an under any great pressure to do it, you know, which is absolutely fantastic because I was going to ask you what changed then so really not a whole lot just sticking to the methodology and getting in better horses and campaigning them that way. Almost taken a step back and going back a stage in realizing you've trained a lot of winners here before having a little bit of faith in knowing that you can do the job and also surrounding yourself with people owners, staff, jockeys, et cetera that have the faith in you that you can do the job and having being comfortable in your own skin to just make the right decisions hopefully by the right horses and get the job done. And there must be a certain sense of satisfaction that you're having this success when there are certain people who've let you down. You were there for them and then they make their decision. Look, everybody's entitled to do what they want. But for you to be on a 129 and to be having this phenomenal season, there has to be a even though there was still more the season to go and I know that you want more big, great success and more wins on the board. There has to be a certain sense of satisfaction there. Of course, there is this stuff I've not talked about and don't ever want to talk about that went on and that sort of thing but you say I would say as you get older you don't get all without getting wiser and you learn lessons as you go along don't you so I'm surrounded by keep saying it and I'll do buy some fantastic people and there's a lot of satisfaction that it's not just me we're doing all this together. There was a lot of people in the same boat as me that have stuck with me through everything and we're doing it all together you know and it's great that I can repay some of the faith to show business. Form is temporary class is permanent and you're a clear example of that. How important are syndicates for you? Like for a syndicate like Sunday to come to you and to get involved. How important are syndicates in racing in general to bring in more fans and to get fans more knowledgeable about the sport as well? I think it's getting bigger and bigger all the time and I have to hold my hand up when it first started. I didn't I didn't quite know that we had. The skills to look after everybody to that extent, but obviously we've trained for all the syndicates before the obvious ones and so on and when you realize you can do it and when you have the visits and you can look after people and they enjoy the day and it's the thrill people get now when you see them at the races had a winner for syndicate recently at Carlisle in the bumper now basically everyone had gone home. But it was like a grand national winner coming in the chairs he was getting. For all the people that stuck around with it and I will travel, as I said to Dan when he came, the first time the length and breadth of the country will go racing and somebody will stop you and say just wonder how my horses and it takes you a little bit well to be honest I'm a little embarrassed sometimes I can't remember the name thinking oh my God, this person's got horses with me and I can't remember who it is and that sort of stuff but and then they explain whichever horse it is, it's one of these shares in big syndicates and so on. Say grand and it's not a chore to speak to people about horses, you know, they're getting a great buzz from it and it's allowing people working less people, all sorts of people into syndicates. And giving them the feel of having a share in a race horse and maybe in a selfish way that will go into a bigger share or a horse for someone further down the line and that sort of stuff so it's common sense to get involved. And I asked Darren about why Donald McCain for Donald why Darren? Well, I want to deal with good syndicates that are well run and work properly. And as we can see, look, we're only just starting together. So in 12 months time, Darwin might say, I should never have dealt with him in the first place. So you never know, but it's very important what I found with these. It's very important that they're properly managed and properly one. And obviously Sunday looks like one of those syndicates that is. Oh, very much so. And I have to say Darren did say how bosti is about it. I can't emphasize enough. I have flown over with Darren in the airport. Car hire in the hotel. And it's like a kid at Christmas. I think when you do something like Sunday does, I kind of would just describe myself as a racing fan. I absolutely love it. I've got the bug. Once it gets you, it's flipping very hard to shake it and you just want to enjoy it as much as you can. And now you're at the point of how can you help others to enjoy it just as much. And look, WeChat quite regularly now on this podcast and like you're a journalist, but you're a racing fan as well. You feel it and you enjoy it. And it's just something kind of special and unique then when you can move into little bits of ownership as Donald was saying there you can start with kind of micro shares and you might move up and get bigger shares as you go. But the defeating of having a winner is going to be the same and the buzz that you get from it. And as I was saying earlier, you know, helping people to work with the best trainers that you can find the best horses for those trainers tell the story and get people to, you know, to enjoy the buzz and that's really you know what's been happening for the last couple of months. I've been, you know, very taken aback by how enthusiastic people are. I was telling Donald earlier being bombarded with emails in from people, some good bad and indifferent to you. You got to be, you got to be honest, but the vast, vast majority of people are loving that sense of involvement and that sense of closeness to what is professional sport. Really? Like it is. You're playing at the highest level that you can. And you're trying to win. Like, you know, people would ask me a lot about pointing and stuff like that and horses. Why don't bikes on day horses? I never do. Well, very, very. You said you said that from day one. Yeah, I don't, because you get the double whammy. You get that if you lose your money and then you're so disappointed that your horse lost. I'm like, I stay away from it. I just enjoy my horse and if my horse wins, the boss is so much better than winning a hundred quid. You get it. It's a different type of excitement and a different type of thrill. And that's kind of what you're what you're chasing. You know? And I think that we've got, I don't know, 5 and a half thousand people know that are involved. And I'm going to say 98% of them are loving the boys and the complimentary emails that you get the reviews that they write for you now on your facebooks and all of that type of thing. And I'm not a big social media person, but there's people sending you an email thanking you, and it's just from being involved. Like that's all, and that.

"Now in all fairness and i want to mention this to you in in in conjunction with senator mccain's pandering to the drive by media and criticizing this administration for its words about the war in iraq. Abc last night had a very rare positive report on abc's world news. Tonight charles gibson reported encouraging news from baghdad. The decision was made to redeploy thousands of us troops from the baghdad area from other areas of rock to secure the city and reduce the number of daily attacks. Will the numbers are preliminary but it seems to be working after two weeks. Iraqi authorities say to the number of vinyl taxes. Gone down by thirty percent. Abc reporter said by saturating some of the most dangerous neighborhoods. They have reduced violence across baghdad. By almost a third. Us figures calculated differently. Show at twenty two percent drop either way. The americans are fired up. May quote lieutenant patrick patterson of the one hundred fourteenth cavalry. Who says yes. It's been great. We got a lot of smiles. We got a lot of waves still despite the positive tone. Abc's mccarthy concluded hope has often gone sour in iraq if they can't make their own piece america's success in baghdad could quickly be reversed. Well that's the new not new. That's the formulaic balance that the media has to put an aggregate. Okay great news but just so we're fair it could all go to hell in a handbasket in the next five minutes so on the day senator mccain goes out and and is critical in order to get this this loving slavish attention from the drive by media the news out of iraq pretty good. It's almost the same kind of thing that happens. Democrats opening a nor right into their noses and so forth And this is. I say was reported on. Abc's world news. Tonight last night.

"Media and taking cheap shots at president bush. He was an ohio yesterday. Campaigning the four and with senator. Mike dewine said this at a news conference. I think one of the mistakes we made was underestimating the size of the task and the sacrifice that would be required stuff happens mission accomplished last throes. Few dead enders. I'm more familiar with those statements than anyone else. Because it grieves me so much that we have not told the american people how tough and difficult this task would be up. I gonna go back. I have a quote here from president bush on april twenty eighth of two thousand three. I read that quote to you. Iraq can be an example of peace and prosperity and freedom the entire middle east. It will be a hard journey but at every step of the way iraq will have a steady friend in the american people I i am not aware of of the president i well. I'm not aware of myself ever thinking this was going to be a cake walk. And i'm not aware of the administration making the case. I think that mission accomplished banner on board the aircraft carrier some could say that was misleading but the mission at that time was accomplished. That was getting rid of saddam. The the war in iraq actually was quite successful and didn't take very long. It is the aftermath the quest for peace so to speak that is taking a long time. I don't think the president misled anybody about it. Anyway here is what mccain wanted he wanted coverage on all the evening news the cable channels drive by media adulation mccain mccain mccain mccain and he got it. Here's a montage. Senator mccain says that the administration misled the public about the war led the public to think it would be a day at the beach. War of words senator john mccain comes out swinging accusing the president of misleading. The american people making them think it would be some kind of day at the beach tough talk mccain ripped into the administration for painting too rosy a picture and trying to lead the american people into believing. The war was some kind of day at the beach. President bush faces tough criticism. And this comes from a key. Supporter republican senator john mccain became blame the bush administration for leading the american people to believe the war in iraq would be a day at the beach..

By how much pushback you've gone and how big a leap was it for you to put yourself out there like that. That must've been rough. Well for me it was. I knew the other candidate was not right. I knew we couldn't deal with four more years the other candidate and so for me. It was an easy decision. Because i knew what was right and i was in my mind in my heart. I felt like i was doing what was right for the country and i still believe that today as far as taking heat of course i knew i was gonna take heat. That was that there was no doubt that was going to happen. So and i i pushed back on them but i i'm just proud to be to have been some assistance to a man that i believe is is a good president and is leading this country in the right direction and practices civility and an honor and decency as he governs.

Nationwide even jennifer aniston admit some of her relationships with anti baxter's had no shot of continuing and is is the most powerful woman in dc democratic. Senator kirstin cinema talks. About having the vital votes that could cause biden's infrastructure bill to crumble plus cindy mccain talks about crossing party lines and answering.

I come here every day. Trying to show a different perspective hard hitting confrontations alireza liars wire wiring lying now heartwarming segments. We're all sisters here and to larry's moment that made you history. I don't want to talk here. Come maha topics with whoopie. Sarah hayes join bihar sunny hoskin and meghan mccain. Now let's get things started to hello and welcome to the view. There is a growing divide in america between those who will get vaccinated and those who will not and it's causing tension within families and friendships and jennifer aniston recently said that she's cut ties with friends who are antibac- sers. Now i think we all all had to make these choices but sarah. How does that fall for you. Why i actually totally get it right now. We talk about how divided the country is. And i can't control the strangers. I don't know and whether they get it or countable for whether they have or not but when it comes to my inner circle and exposing to myself and my children in my home i absolutely have a say and so i don't think it would mean the end of the friendship forever but right now in the near term. We need to take a beat right. Megan would you end the friendship over this. What am i. I think that My circle of friends is so tight and close That it would be too hard to give up a friendship. I might not socialize with them in closed quarters inside for a long time. But i wouldn't and a friendship. Life is too short to start ending friendships and ruining families over politics at least for me. Yeah joint is this deal breaker for you. When she says jennifer says she's losing friends. I presume she doesn't mean lisa who dro- david schwimmer. She's talking about other friends. Okay got it got it. Yeah his deal. None of all of my friends vaccinated. I don't have any friends who are thinking that way. But i have a couple of relatives like i said on yesterday's show there's a wedding coming up and not everybody is going to be vaccinated there including the bride. So i'm going to have to think that through very carefully and i don't. I don't think it's about politics. I think it's about health. It's about health and trying to save yourself and not die so yeah i don't i don't know anybody practically in my circle who's not vaccinated. They all are right sunny. How about you yeah. I would have to agree with joy. My my dearest and closest friends know the loss that we suffered from the pandemic many of them came up to me and said you know because of what your family has been through in the transparency of your loss we are going to get vaccinated so i surround myself and i'm surrounded with love and honor and and certainly those that are vaccinated. I will say i have had. I've learned a lot about certain people during this pandemic and i've had discussions with people that in my view have exhibited really reckless behavior. Not wearing masks going indoors partying with large groups of people and things like that. And i have changed some of my friendships because of it. I think it's just too important because public health is is a collaborative effort. And if you have someone in my view that is so selfish as to not consider the lives of their fellow american and their fellow man. That's just not something that i'm interested in maintaining a friendship. With what about you. I i have a lot of folks on not direct family to me but you know family to others who are constantly. Have this conversation with but they are. These are the folks who reading that craziness on the internet. You know who think that if you drink upside down that you won't get. I mean crazy stuff and all you say from across the room is that's not gonna work and i don't want you to defined out on your deathbed and you now it's worked in small increments you just never know so you just keep trying trying from a distance triumph from however because you don't as as angry as you get with people you don't wish this on anyone know it is just it's a it's a crappy awful way ago and you don't wish it on anybody so we don't so we want everybody to get vaccinated not because of our politics not because because we all have family and little kids in our lives and what you are not doing affects what everyone else is doing. We will be right. Back with senator kirsten cinema. Ooh we view. This is a moment in history. Hold these truths. Seeing americans being able to speak to power at ruth before anything to be self evident we the people for the people by the people that all women all men all people are created equal. We can't expect empathy if we don't give it as well and free to openly voice their viewed truth justice and the american way so they haven't whatever your view thoughtful talking on the issues. Americans understand what was going on. So i wanna thank all of you. You are welcomed here yells. Politics are different than mine. And and i think it's actually good.

And it's going to catch up with him so you think he's gonna pretend to run in order to like to veer off these lawsuits then yes and then if he thinks he can win. He'll run if he's thinking hand there's no chance he can be a loser again so he'll never run. Everything's going to be a loser. That's assuming that his brain doesn't give out between now and then because at the time he's not you're wondering does he have like something mentally impaired. Yeah you know. I mean and i feel sorry for anybody. That has that except for him. Okay so the supreme court since you mentioned it is officially more conservative. Now after amy corny loser got in there and replace ruth bader ginsburg okay. So they didn't start with her by the way but anyway. Yeah but at the worst. But it's now officially the numbers are officially it. Way way off. So it's just a conservative for queenie's clarence the no the. Yeah the just. I mean just the empty suit clarence thomas. Yeah yeah empty. Suit up hughie thomasson. Imagine if he would like. Can you imagine. I mean chris matthews is an on tv because some girl complimented the wrong way and here. This guy's on the supreme court. Yeah put a pubic hair on a cook. And we're talking about support. I just can't oh my god. He was at the wedding. They like best friends shocking. Oh my god i mean. Apparently that wive funded some of the insurrection. Did you knew. That though. Clarence thomas his wife. Yes she paid for. A lot of transportation would be able to get to the capital. Why isn't anyone investigating that on. This is what i'm sick. America garwin about go investigate and prosecute these people quit saying. I'm not because it's political. It's not political. These are not political animals. They are just animals. I wouldn't know who gave the fucking tours who ancient walls the tours and then go. They need to be in trouble you mature. You handed them the blueprints how to get to the offices. I see what is apple girl that they were attacked. She was texting. Tell him where nancy pelosi was. How did they find some of those offices. That are no and find it even work. If i can't steal packages for my neighbor without fourteen ring cameras on me. How is there not a thousand people. Saying here's who gave me a here. I know i 'cause they're covering it up but why and who. That's what that's the thing. There are some low people in high places. And i'm disappointed in america garland because he doesn't want to hear political. We're not finding a political war. We are fighting a war. When are they going to get over that. It appears political. And what appears this idea of politics being some other things. We're in this thing wrong. Lying lying cheating is cheating every above the law. Everyone's must be treated the same. Everyone's supposed to be created equal. Why are you worried about if it looks political let political. Yeah that's a made up and that's what they do that is do it. They all do. They're proud of it. They're proud of it. So the supreme court did they. They overturned the final thing. That would have gotten rid of obamacare. So that's the one. The only reason they're doing that is because republicans love it now. But they're they're they're well they're doing it. And also because remember. John roberts supported it the last time so they can't make a fool of him because he's leading the court but remember he also supported gutting the voters. Yeah act and so. They are following in line behind him on that one. The abortion voting. It doesn't matter what it is now. It's like it's it's it's so to the right. It's unbelievable so what's happening there. get over this either. You absolutely cannot under any circumstances. Have an abortion if your life is at risk and you're gonna die or if you are raped by your stepfather or your father or your uncle and you are one week pregnant. You have to have that baby. But in the meantime we're going to go down there and let five kids die at the border cage these kids and not give them any water. Scout trump wanted to build a swamp. If you remember with alligators around that wall so they couldn't get up to the wall and over it. Remember a moat. That was back when he wanted to buy greenland too. But you know all this is acceptable. You just acceptable. But you can't let somebody decide what to do with their body. That's the other hypocrisy there. They can't tell you they can't mandate you wear a mask but they can mandate that you have a child. What's consistent about that. My body my choice. We heard tucker carlson. Say my body my choice twisting every single thing view. A woman says my body my choice. Now it's my choice with the mask is my body. My choice vaccine being segregated their segregating us. We're being manned racist hawkers. Whatever out of control and sorry and i just will drop the abortion thing but i could talk about all day long. How do you kill something that's unborn. Let's just murder of the unborn. Just think about it. Think about it thinking okay. This is the port. Kat hilton an insurrection. They turn a blind eye and the speaker of the house will not even meet with. The person dismisses them completely and this the family of the person and this person died yet. They're over there forcing you know their religious beliefs when they're supposed to be separation me certain dirt and the other thing too is you can be against abortion all day long. I don't have don't don't have what i know certainly into the death penalty if you're into not in another thing. They're up for the death penalty. But you're not for that. Well you know. I don't believe in the death penalty. I think they should abolish it because more people are wrongly killed than right writer rail and just and by the way the legal expenses and the court system is jammed up with this for years and years and years. Put them in jail and throw away the key. That's fine but if you're not pro-life you're you're not pro life. You're against each choices. What yeah you're your.

"I don't think there's a lower morsel other than roger stone of flat flan trump's in that cesspool of deplorables beyond i mean i just can't even believe that that they are not taking a stand against these people i mean i that's why i think they're miscalculating and so now what they've realized as we made this bed we have to lie in it. We can't admit we were wrong. So we've got to go to the mat so we can't win because they're gonna we're to be outvoted so the only thing we can now do is stop. The voting right. They're the only people vote that we want to vote. So that's their new plan. The corruption is so deep because they their ideology is more important to them than than the integrity. Your word character. The united states democracy. You know they're just so racist and bigoted. I mean the language they even used. They're still using the n. Word they're using words that like if we ever used growing up. I mean you know you'd have bar soap in your mouth and in you're locked in your room for a year and they're out there just loud proud with it. Yeah they're proud of it and there's People in congress that were obviously horrified on the day of the instruction on january six and now they're all doubling down like. Oh the the election results were some. There were fraudulent and certain states. Now why not well. Let's just have. They can count. Let's just keep counting. It's like arizona's accounting. For what how i mean. Now there's a he'd county. What but see what happened is they miss. They thought in the beginning mitch. Mcconnell came out against it ramani came out six or seven. Republicans in the senate voted for the impeachment and then they decided that trump's base is going to determine who gets the nominations so they decided if we want to stay in the game we have to go with the base so they compromised all their value and integrity to go with the base and their safety in numbers if they would have all stuck together. That's right and said we're not tolerating this and stomped out in the beginning and level the playing field and rebuilt. It might have cost him a few seats short term. But what they're doing now other than the fact that they're going to lie cheat and steal to steal the elections long-term they don't stand a chance unless they steal it and so that's why they're now going to double down on stuff like arizona. You know all of the stop in and in texas governor's gonna try to make up all these rules and laws and then the supreme court's like well you know we're gonna leave it to the states will they didn't leave it to the states when they anointed george w bush to the presidency so there now politicize trump put in political players. He we're gonna get definitely gonna get to the supreme court so but speaking of trump so okay so we're a year and a half away from the midterms like the twenty twenty two midterms. He's out trump's back. He's doing his mega-rallies being disgusting. He's do you think that because you said it already that they're they're going with him they don't want to be want those base voters which is going to get the nomination. The question is are they going to be able to get the suburbs and the reasonable you know people to go with them and i guess it depends on their taxes their guns and their bibles in their abortions. I don't know what else could it be. So they're all just gonna go with trump. You know. I don't know i think there's a groundswell of suburban women that like. They saw that. I saw that insurrection. And they're like i don't like it. They see they're wanting to lie to kids in school and not teach them facts. And like i don't like it and then they're like you know is that little im- by the way if that tax break for republicans is such a fraud it's only for super-rich republicans for the average republican. It's for the top one percent. So why aren't they brainwash these people to believe they're getting lower taxes. The truth is unless they. They're in the billionaire category. They're not getting lower taxes. It's just it's just a fraud just like trump's of fraud han just like they were furious about obamacare and then something now. they're into it. We don't want this to go. Yeah we're fucking paying attention okay. So with the supreme court's ruling and with you know the new voting laws. Do you think that they're going to take back the house. I think there's a risk of it. Not because it will be legitimate. Because it'll be stolen. And what i'm worried about more than the voting and the gerrymandering the redistricting and the voting. I think we could overcome all that because we could get rally the troops and get every single person out devote. What you can't overcome is if the secretary state has the authority to say no. We think there was fraud. We're gonna pick this person. That's where the problems don't lie. And that's what i think trump's hoping for a civil war i think he's like he's got his army loaded up ready to go. Go by your assault weapons. The democrats are gonna take your guns. Get you buy them now. And even if we were to rally the troops it would no one even comes out. Honestly in the midterms. It's really hard to get people out with. It's what it's not presidential election fifteen hours getting water wire line. Yeah they're gonna to make it so but i'm hoping it backfires. I do think it's going to backfire in the states or we have strong. Ground troops like with stacey abrams. You know if every organ if every state had a grassroots organization like she has built yeah we could overcome it. But you're not going to be overcome it if it goes to the secretary of state or the governor and they won't certify the election it goes to the house and they won't certify the election there's no way to overcome it now smiling more than the voting and georgia was so close. If it's going to be that close then. All you need is secretary of state. Who's you know. Corruption says nope it was wrong. It was wrong and i. We don't believe it and we're not certifying it. And that's their goal goals to get the house or the senate so they don't certify the election. That's our goal now because he can't win legitimately and they i don't understand the mentality. Though the only thing it can be rooted in is that they just want america to be all white ran. My men. I just think they should shut down the right wing media. I don't think it should be allowed. But yeah because they're they're they're brainwashing people. it needs to be fact based what looks truth in advertising. If i went to advertise you use my skin care. You're going to look twenty years older younger. I guarantee you five treatments and you're gonna look eighteen years. I'd go to jail but they're up there like oh and they lie they lie. They lie and we're the consequences. None if you just turn on to care to care kosovo you know that the the first thirty seconds the first thirty seconds he talks is blatantly. Lies it's blatant. It's like a comedy it's literally it was a stand up if you yes but there's so many people that believe it in a lot of them are not stupid people. They just have never gotten their news from anywhere other than that. That group of people that just are willing to lock you remember when lying was like such a shameful thing to do if you got caught in a lie you had to put your nose in the circle on the board at the school and stand there with your classmates shaming you and your parents were like your rounded. You know you just lying which is something you just didn't do and you didn't cheat and now lying is like a commodity is like who can lie the most and the loudest and they're like plotting those lies at those rallies and by the way had that rally while they're still looking for dead bodies in the middle of a catastrophe and he's out there having a roundly. Why wasn't he having a fundraiser for the family. Or why wasn't he going and having some kind of condolences for the family. Or why was he just home. Shut up go play golf but no he has to go down there when they're looking for dead body. How far away is a fucking country club. Heard it was like a couple of a couple of our or a couple hundred miles or a couple of hours i. It doesn't matter. He shouldn't be having a rally anywhere he shouldn't. He shouldn't be having anything other than celebrating the fourth of july and morning these families and supporting these people. He should not be out with his propaganda and lies in rallying the troops. Because you know what the problem he can't he's going to withdrawals he cannot stand it. That no one's giving him attentions and accolade so i'm going to have a rally even if there's a hundred people there i'm going to have a rally and then i'm gonna make excuses why they didn't come well. It was raining well. The road was blocked. Well it was this you know. It's just unbelievable. Do you think he's gonna run. And i think he's going to say that he is up until the time he decide simply because the if he can consider if he can sell everybody on the fact that all of these these lawsuits against him or political prosecutions. That's going to be his gag. That's going to be his. you see..

"Is our segment called the ladies room. And it's just ladies talk in the latest stuff and our guest. Today is pinnacles when it comes to being a lady. She's gorgeous she's smart she's funny she's classy and she's rich very rich and very beautiful and very very smart in fact. It was her obsession with politics. That inspired us to start this podcast way back in two thousand sixteen. Oh the good old days and since then she's done the show a million times and she is by far our most popular gas right my mouth. That's true that's one hundred percent true if you're a bravo fan you'll know her from the real housewives of miami and flipping out with jeff lewis. And if you're not then you'll know her for being a legendary ma'am socialite and philanthropist. Who is not only rich but also very generous very generous one of our most treasured friends so we are super excited and that she agreed to be on our dump podcast again so without further ado. It's time for a meeting in the ladies. Room with leah. Black hialeah high girls. We are in the ladies room. You can hear it. You hear the water piece using the restroom. Exactly the ladies room all right well now. The last time you on the podcast was just one month. After the cunanan mega monsters storm the capital in the name of election fraud. Can you believe that. The republicans in congress have basically washed their hands of this whole thing. They're not going to do anything. Apparently it was just a tourist. It's embarrassing it's just so embarrassing. It's i don't even. There are no words. I think they're miscalculating. I think they're calculating that it's going to go away. And they can change the subject and that people are going to forget. And i think they're going to miss the big piece of the pie a rational republicans and i just think there is a very dangerous risks that they're taking because it's gonna come out and now instead of them having a sanit. It's going to come out from people that really want it to come out. They're not gonna have as many people to help them. Suppress it and it's going to be drip drip drip drip drip right up until the election. Basically the senate voted down a bipartisan commission. So you're you think that now. They've basically voted away the republicans their chance to well. I think they're going to fill it with you know crazies. You know the gym. Jordan's the wackadoo oodles. You know they're gonna fail it with these people that will just messy in a muddy up the water but the problem is going to be if they have live testimony. People are not that stupid. The only people that they're feeding into are the people that no matter what are going to vote for trump because they want to keep america white. That's it or make them uruguay. Yeah that's it there. Those people are they're never gonna lose no matter what happens or what they do and then there's a few billionaires they're never gonna lose because of their taxes but the regular suburban mom you think she's going to sit there and watch that direction and then they're going to get up there and try to muddy the water with a bunch of you know dog and pony shows and they're gonna fall for it. I don't think so. I think they're banking on people being too busy to pay attention. I don't know do you think that It was like like why did wasn't it caught by the fbi the cia. Is there people protecting. That's another thing that i think. Something's up with christopher wray. And i've thought it for a long time when he testified and he wouldn't give the information like well that's under investigation. Well i'm not gonna talk about that in front of people. I think he's hiding something. So why is it keeping him on. Well you know the ten year tenure that they you know like the professionals. You're not supposed to get rid of trump's the only one that came in and just started kicking out professionals long-term professionals and putting in politicians and yes men and biden. I think is trying to follow the traditional. I'm not saying that ain't christopher ray is dirty or or that he was in on it or that he you know i just think that he makes him look so bad. This happened on his clock that he's got a cover his ass to do that. He's gonna try to just not put anything more out there than it has to. So that's my point about. I think there's just something with him. I mean i think you should have a mea culpa and say this happened on my clock i take responsibility for it. Here's what really happened. And and just say between facebook and social media and fox news in oah- and news and the propaganda and the former president and the rest of it. We were just blindsided and we. We didn't understand the depth and the width of the corruption. The meanness the hatred the bigotry and the rest of it and it got away from us. And we're gonna clean up the mess. But instead i think he's trying not to look bad because his did happen on his clock and so he's just going to only say what he has to and and as things come out he's going to justify why it's not any part of the fbi's fault. I wish somebody would have said that. Honestly i just look. We knew we knew there was gonna be a somewhat. Let's say excited protests there was three different protest rallies plan right by trump the trump campaign and all of a sudden. It's like the fbi was that he he's now looking back like. How did we miss this. But also gotta remember to his credit trump. Made sure they missed a lot of it. He has a lot of low people in high places. And i don't think a lot of stuff trickled up maybe to the top of the fbi. I think they kept it quiet just like they did at the pentagon like they did with the police force. You know a lot of them were alike hoping this was going to happen. I just don't think they realized how to control. It was going to be. And how like really crazy. These people were. I mean these people if they could have gotten those guns in they would have had them in there remember. They had guns in the state next to them maryland or wherever the guns are legal and they were waiting for a cue to bring the guns in because they're against the law and they want to have him confiscated in washington so these people were reading literally. I think for mass murder at. I don't think people like the fbi and the pentagon and the cops in those dirty people that were offered trump. I don't think they realized that this was a civil war brewing. I think they just thought let's teach them all a lesson you know. Trump should've won. And we're going to stand behind him and he's our guy and then it got and then the train left the station and there was just no way to put genie back in the box. What do you think mitt. Romney and liz cheney and the you know sense republicans. Why aren't they voting for a commission. I think liz cheney did vote for commission didn't share does she. Not every republican voted against. Maybe they did. I don't know well. She's on the commission now and she's in the house that's why she's in the house that's why that's it. Yeah she's exactly. She's in the house so nancy. Pelosi put her on the committee. And then kevin mccarthy i can't stand him..

Sarah haynes bugs the guest bug the segments bog before matt's bog the incessant birthday celebrations bug. The whole show is completely annoying unsatisfying until they started doing it remotely from their living rooms during quarantine and that's when everything changed we along with the rest of america apparently got completely obsessed with the view and we have not missed a single episode since kovic twenty. We've got a twenty fourteen. Wendy williams style co dependency on that god damn show and it begins and ends with megan fucking mccain. Well hello and welcome to the view. Megan you have the floor. Yes thank you what be so. I am just going to rip the band aid off. I am here to tell olive view. My wonderful co and the viewers at home that this is going to be my last season here at the view. I will be here through the end of july to finish out the season with all of you which i am grateful for. This was not an easy decision. It took a lot of thought and counsel and prayer and talking to my family and my close friends. And you know look. Kobe has changed the world for all of us. And it changes the way at least for me. The way. I am looking at life the way. I'm living my life the way i want my life to look like and when i said goodbye to all of you in the studio over a year and a half ago i had just found out i was pregnant. I left the city very quickly because my obgyn wanted me to leave. Because he wasn't sure about how could possibly impact pregnant women. I came to the dc area. Which is where my husband. And i have always split time. And it's where. I grew up splitting time. And we have this incredible life here where surrounded by my family his family by friends by this incredible support unit. And i think as any new mom knows when i think about where i want liberty to have her first steps and our first words. I just have this really wonderful life here that ultimately i felt like i didn't wanna leave on a professional note. This show is one of the hands down. Greatest most exhilarating wonderful privileges of my entire life. And i have had so many amazing experiences in my life and this is definitely one of the top. It is a privilege to work alongside such strong brilliant intelligent incredible broadcasters. Like the four of you. You are the most talented women on all of television and hands down and it has been so incredible to be able to do this with you before i came onto the show. i didn't want to join the show as i think i've talked about in the past and it was my dad. Who encouraged me to do it. He said that. I could never give up an opportunity to work on such an iconic show and to work with whoopi goldberg and he was right. It was one of the last things he told me to do before he died. And since we've been here the last four years together we have won an emmy. we've gone to number one. We've been parodied on saturday. Night live we were on the cover. My personal favorite of the new york times magazine is the most important political show in america. We have all interviewed every presidential candidates. This is the show in america and it is not easy to leave But i feel like this is just the right decision for me at this moment and i just want to thank all of you all of you. What be joy sunny. Sarah i also want to thank abby huntsman. Who is was a good friend of mine. Continues to be a good friend of mine and has really helped me with this decision and ushered me through this process and i also really want to thank our incredible leader. Brian totta our executive producer. Who is the heart. And soul. And morpheus of this show and i would not have had any success on here. Without your leadership is paramount's we are grateful to have you. At least. I know i am and i wanna thank him. Godwin the president of abc for being so respectful and understanding and to this incredible crew and the producers. And everybody who makes us work every day again. You're the best in the business. I wish nothing but continued success and good wishes and good luck to all of you and to the show and i'm just eternally grateful to have had this opportunity here so seriously. Thank you from the absolute bottom of my heart. And i will still be here another month so if you guys want to fight a little bit more. We have one more weeks. Yeah and we do we do. We do need you to do that because we need you to fight more. Just really sucks man like we watched the view every day. It is our life's blood literally tape it will i. It's a comfort. it's a joy it's a it's a. It's a warm blanket. It's a warm toxic blanket and we need it. We need it and the thing. Is that being going in and out of the view you always need a megan mccain. Elizabeth hasselbeck was the megan mccain of the elizabeth hasselbeck time and that was when i was watching it and that's when it was good because it was no she wasn't fighting like meghan mccain fought but she brought some con and you know what i mean. I'm trying not to give credence in twenty twenty one to bullshit. Rumor started on social media about you know shit that happens at work you know. Yeah but there was some kind of leaked things. Supposedly that abc had to step in and have a meeting with all of them over like that the show was was getting toxic. Oh and we don't know if it's true or not but it's like some part of me wants that to be the reason that she left because then maybe it means she won't leave right like will you know. I just listened after listening to that clip for the four hundred time. Yes she said. Now as i'm as i'm cunanan out on it yes she said. I'm grateful to be able to be here to the end of the month now. She was leaving on her own accord. Why would you be grateful that you could be there till the end of the month. Why wouldn't you just be like. I'm staying till the end of the month. You're welcome and move it on rather than they're letting me stay so perhaps it's something such as it wasn't just her not wanting to come back. Some people think that she was that she was. Let go in the in the article about the the meeting with. Abc did say that she stormed out. I can visualize it. I mean it's just believable. it's believable. She would storm out. She storms out in her words. Yeah she storms out words. All the fucking time mentally always storming she's always out she's megan storming out mccain. That's what she does that's why we've ever she storms the fuck out. Joy goes crazy. We'll be can't stand it. I live her getting under joyce skin i live for her getting underway skin..

So lauren j as we like to call her she got you a birthday package and i gotta say she kinda killed the game because i think that she has forever altered the course of history she had a place in pasadena called total wine. Deliver fucking bottles of champagne. The reason that this is life altering in history changing the future of our lives. It's kind of a pain in the ass to have alcohol delivered and a lot of people. Thank god if our fourteen listeners. At least probably at this point each one of our fourteen listeners has at some point tried to get us alcohol in some fashion like michelle. Lundquist gave us an emmy michelle. I don't even know if you still listen.

We have drake dom up in this bitch before we have. We won't talk about champagne we keep it. It's like a work of art. We love so much.

He's a revered was a revered senator in the senior senator in the state of Arizona. And so to do that, I really thought that was going to be the end of it. And then he spoke very unfavourably about President Bush, who was obviously beloved by the Republican Party. Whose whose endorsement he was ultimately seeking. And then I remember. At one point, he cast a suggestion that the father of Senator Ted Cruz may have been involved in the assassination of JFK. And I thought this is that he's done. But every time he came back from that, so hey, does have I mean, there he does. There's something about him that sparks, eh? A tremendous level of loyalty and support from many, many people. Interestingly enough, it doesn't look as though the numbers ever got to 50% during the course of his his four years in office. And I think that's interesting.

We got a lot of tweets footage footage of you walking off the view set on Friday after a fight with Ana Navarro. What is that a fight yeah always you seen extra over it with the audience sometimes with the ladies so I will say the audience is extremely combative. Got It and it's nice to be in a positive audience and the sort of like the booing and heckling is a lot every day and I'm paid your at at the view. I'm paid to give a different view and so I would like us all when people come to roll back because again. I'm just trying to very probably how you're having an extra hard time time though with the other ladies just in terms of being able to express your point of view and everybody in America's having a really hard time expressing their the point of view but vibe wise with the host. I'm actually much more comfortable with the main five hosts that I work with every day than I was last six now. It's my third year but I just want to say the walking being off footage. We are told by producers to leave the table. If it's too heated get touched up backstage with my makeup's. That's what I was doing and I've done that like I'm over the years so I don't know why time I don't know why I thought Oh my God walking off the reunion. It's so you can be like the House also so. Let's go to Evelyn from Boston. Hey Evelyn what's your question for Kelly Dodd Yeah. They have Kelly. I just wanted to to ask you if you consider just apologizing even if you don't mean it because you usually do later and it's not the can attack you on the spot. They got their own.

Brecca Megan our friend Evan Ross cast said you were not having it with Pamela Anderson during an appearance and outspoken support of Julian Khalil assange did you to exchange anymore words backstage or when the cameras stopped rolling no you do not know and I will say I was a big Fan of hers. Growing up actually gave her final playboy away as a gift to my husband 'cause he had a crush on her growing up and I was really disappointed with how it went and I will say that Joy Behar actually gave me some really amazing advice that I need to stop helping people get famous that are having a hard time or get publicity because getting in a fight with me as a really good way to get on the front lines but I stand by everything I I said. I think the message she's giving is incredibly dangerous. With in terms of Julian assange cyberterrorism can deepen intense on the show read from Michigan for Meghan McCain.

That's the view enjoy getting into it or you and someone how. How long does it take you to cool down join air pretty good. We can both let it roll off pretty quick because I think she gets that. We're good sparring partners. Pamela Anderson was a rougher one for me because I felt like it was the very dangerous I felt like. She was feeling propaganda. On our show the other day on that was I mean we went on the next segment and like all right off the right people that are taking the same dangerous things on the show. That's a whole different thing thing but look I my dad had a horrible temper and the Senate like famously personalities are very similar and it's for me it's passion and no disrespect but a a lot of people have failed at my chair on the and I on my third year August sense Elizabeth. Thank you very much and I think part of it is because I'm a true believer and and I take it serious. I worry that that's good to hear her but I as someone is a fan of your's worry that it's beating leading you down or it's taking an emotional taller that your somehow getting less able to deal with it. I wish that the producers on my show what allow us to be more three hundred sixty degree people because the show really is hot topic which is always trump's earning America go for it and then we have like two minutes two minutes.
