"Hi doctor red Leonard Good morning Hello Stephanie Good morning to you too I'm sorry The anti vaxxers are making me crazy I'm sorry You know we were just saying all of this inflation child enter what do you call it Supply chain issues It is secretary pizza's solving COVID We'll solve all of this And the fact that we still have Republican governors trying to working at cross purposes I mean the good news is governor Abbott just got slapped down in court And this was I think a great move forward legally that it's the disappear Americans with disabilities act that he can not ban you know he can not stop mask mandates So you know but here we are Missouri's Republican governor Maul's jobless benefits for anti vaxxers after yanking them from everybody else So it's just frustrate the bejesus up It was a health expert in a doctor to see us so close to hopefully getting toward the end of this and just have constant fighting from the other side to stop it Well it's not just that Stephanie Every time we turn around there's something else going on A couple of weeks ago there are a lot of people saying oh we're on the trends are great we're on the downturn for COVID and then we find out that COVID spiking up and the UK and the Netherlands and Luxembourg and parts of Africa and so on And then here in the U.S. of course we have a complete hodgepodge of some states that are seem to be trending downwards of the state's trending trending upwards It's just we've overused this cliche but it's the ultimate life game of whack a mole where it's very difficult to get a handle on it And then you have a governor making a preposterous statement or announcement or policy Yeah That is absurd and not to mention the Aaron Rodgers types who are just in the mix adding more stupidity to an already very confusing situation Really Well it's just usually wild stuff Doctor you've said this every week It was always going to be a race between vaccines and variants Well the way to story I saw yesterday the ten states that the delta plus variant is in now You know in this here we go We're at a tipping point right before the holidays right before travel right before the winter where as you say cases are they plateaued or starting going up again it just it gives me terrible PTSD I mean I'm just like oh no Not you said it You said hey stay farm Rogers is a lying dangerous reckless horrible role model for American youth He claims personal choice about not getting the vaccine pure BS of his choice puts other at risk Time for State Farm to drop him I mean first of all it's not a good line That's not the moral model you want for your kids He lied about it and snuck around That's even worse Yeah the combination of arrogance lying and bad information You know in normal circumstances it's sort of any kind of topic That would be we can't have you expose to our children And this circumstance it's the exposure to our children and it's also putting a lot of people at risk of dying This is what's so extraordinary The dime lied first of all in August Saying that I'm immunized which everyone of course took to mean that he was back Yeah So it continues to be in the Clubhouse and play the sport and interact with his teammates and with other teams and it's just preposterous I really I don't see this as a win in any way for State Farm Do you want me to say No No why would this be a good idea There's plenty of other sports figures who have been vaccinated who are superheroes on the field find them get them You already have a couple that are on your payroll So why use him Yeah Lexie Yeah as Howard Stern said when next time he gets broken bones on the field bring in doctor Joe Rogan And the New England Journal of Facebook Okay I'm expressing on behalf of your lifetime of training and work I'm just expressing my frustration Yes I mean in your pediatrician here's you know Matthew McConaughey McConaughey saying he's not going to get his kids vaccinated He's against mandates for youngsters He said and he lives they live with his 90 year old immune compromised mother Vivek Murthy said you pushed back He said this is an opportunity to protect our kids He said it's okay to ask questions and see credible answers from qualified sources but he emphasized COVID is not harmless in our children Many kids have died sadly hundreds of children thousands have been hospitalized but this is the problem People are listening I guess is equally to Aaron Rodgers and Joe Rogan as they are to Vivek Murphy And I don't know what to do about that Yeah nobody knows what to do about that So I mean it's just that it's a terrible situation and we've never I don't know if you can remember anything but I don't remember any kind of public health crisis that was this confusing with this many people spouting ignorance and things that they've acquired from the Internet and social media And it's a powerful force This is the thing about it too When you have a personal revelation let's say your neighbor has a complication from the vaccine It doesn't matter what the data is You know your neighbor had a complication and that's it And now we have not just your physical neighbors but your neighbors on social media who are talking to you as if they know you And convincing you that the vaccine may be dangerous or it doesn't work It's a really big problem that we didn't have before The advent of all this stuff on radio and social media said that the girl first what a heck of a time to raise children You know it wasn't like this during polio or measles or wherever and big bird is public enemy number one I mean it's just it's so absurd And I was saying there was a story that happened to be on a Yahoo news but I'm like why doesn't the media cover more of the vast majority of us and kids that are thrilled and relieved to get our COVID vaccine There's 80% of us Don't we have I think at least one shot now I mean this one just my ten year old got his first dose of COVID on November 3rd so far his only side effect has been happiness for rumi the relief of knowing he's protected as palpable I can finally breathe And she does a whole story about how excited he was and it just again it's what the media focuses on It's the however many a few hundred people that won't get vaccinated and what their problem is rather than focusing on the majority of us right It's true but the large majority of the regular media in New York Times and those legitimate news sources are good But they are confronting the news that's on the social media and that is it's like the wild west There's no control There's no editors there There's no fact checkers There's just this constant spouting of BS coming across the Internet that people are just focused on It's very hard to confront this I mean it's such the outlier I mean I have to have to give props to her older Rivera but you know does it cut through all the other propaganda of Fox News right He said on Hannity the other night did you see this He said if I'm in your room with my grandchildren who are not vaccinated because they're too young and you lie about vaccine status and you sneeze on my grandchildren that could be a crime that is absolutely so selfish when they were talking about Aaron Rodgers And then he said Sean Hannity who's vaccinated he said let me be Frank I despise vaccinated people who are smuggling their protection who urge on vaccinated people to exercise their freedom It's like the guy in the street who's telling the guy on the ledge to jump I don't know if that cuts through on Fox News but wow right It's extraordinary It just absolutely extraordinary So you know you ask yourself what is the viewer or the listener supposed to think after hearing interactions like that between a host and a guest And we have we have granted this kind of special authority.

"Back with you on this Fourth of July Sunday afternoon, Happy Independence Day to everybody, and aren't we grateful to be living in such a Great country. The United States of America this weekend. 51283605 90 is our phone number. If you'd like to join us here on kill BJ. You can give me a call or send me attacks. So the new poll numbers released today by the Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler. It says that Governor Abbott Is favored by 39%. Those polled but Matthew Makani Right behind at 38%. And almost 25% said they vote for somebody else. Well, that may be good news, too. The new challenger. In the race, and it's not Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey's books by the way. These green lights right? That's the name of his book. It's been on Amazon's nonfiction a best seller list for 36 straight weeks, usually in the number one or number two spot. Number four on the New York Times list for combined print and e book nonfiction seals. 36 weeks there as well and number six on the Wall Street Journal's list for hardcover nonfiction, So Matthew McConaughey is selling some books. And getting some love and This latest polling data from the Dallas Morning News. Now there's somebody new in the race as of this morning, and that's the Texas Republican chairman. Allen West. Now set a church this morning that he is running for governor. He's announced his resignation as the State Party chairman. That's effective July 11th. West made these comments at a church this morning. In Carrollton. And he didn't mention the governor Abbott specifically. In his remarks. But he's officially in the race. As of this morning, Allen West and we know that former state Senator Don Huffines of Dallas is also On the Republican side in the primary against Governor Abbott. So The governor's race getting interesting. And we're not even sure who's who's on the other side. Don't know if McConaughey is going to get in. If he's going to do that, as a Democrat as an independent, right, that's all up in the air. But now Governor Abbott has at least two challengers. On the Republican side. I mentioned that former President Trump is old news. Yes and no. And he's like crack, really, as he holds another one of these rallies. Yesterday in Sarasota, Florida. ABC started off their roundtable discussion this morning talking about Trump's rally. I mean, even though he's not on so many social media platforms, he stays, right. I mean, this is really his outlet. To get out there and say anything about anything going on. And his circle now presumably is out there to rally the base to promote candidates to raise money. And Sarasota yesterday they held a moment of silence. For the victims of the Surfside condo collapse. But it's really all about His opportunity. His only mechanism. Really, to get any kind of messaging out there and for anybody to pay much attention to it. And so in his remarks last night, which by the way was built as 1/4 of July celebration, tens of thousands of people At the fairgrounds there in Sarasota. It was very hot. At one point, there were torrential rains. At one point, but he still had a big crowd. And it gave him a chance to respond to His company, his organization. And his chief financial officer. Getting 15 criminal charges brought against him, right, So that's his way to respond there. Which he did in a big way. Scorched earth as always, and There is an onslaught of books coming out about Trump. Over the next month or so. There are so many books coming out about Trump. The publishers have been getting together and they're changing the publication dates. Just because they're so on top of each other. There's so many books. That are coming out. Going to guess with you. Most of those are Are not going to be very flattering. The former president, and then there's even more books coming out next year. From reporters from The New York Times, for example. So These rallies are Trump's way of of responding and getting his message out there Republican party Probably still on the fence as to whether these a good thing for them are they not so good. What about the candidate cities Endorsing The good for them. Not so good. I mean, only time will tell right. But President Trump and a smart move on his part, right is's slow Fourth of July weekend. President Biden usually doesn't make a whole lot of news over a weekend, especially over a holiday weekend like this, even though he did Because he was in that store and Seem to have a lapse in memory about the ransomware attacks and how we're going to respond to that and what his response was going to be and so forth, But So trump kind of, uh, Shoots the gap there and fills the vacuum. On a slow Fourth of July weekend. Let's hope it stays that way. By having one of his signature rallies in Sarasota. Last week. Last night. 51283605 90 here, Caleb say well this last week, too right because he was down on the border with Governor Abbott. And he's got more of these planned. I don't know to what regularity and what states right. You can bet they're going to be battleground states. That's kind of his M O. So we'll see where that goes. We started that conversation by telling you that Governor. Abbott has got a new contender in the governor's race. Allen West. And the very tight poll numbers out of the Dallas Morning news this morning. Showing Abbott and McConaughey is neck and neck. 38 39% range. Of those responding It was out the Statesman Today only 4000 more Travis County residents.

I mean, a men in their twenties and stuff and even Older I thought kind of his attitude about absorbing life and so many different capacities, and he's very talented and very smart and very well written, but he he's witty, and he's funny. And it's just like that's not a little black. That's a green light. There's a different way to look at that. He's very optimistic areas via how you look at life half full or half empty. And I really, you know, I wish I really thought that was really a good book, and I did like talking to him. Now. Here's some other things that are happening. People. Um you know how We talked about.

So you sliced your steaks and enough you put it down and put it in toaster. That's something a woman named Juliet and Tic Tac is going viral after she made a video cooking at stake in a toaster. S so now This will just make other tick tack. Ear's think. What other crazy way can I cook something? You know, I would take like the heating. You know that gun that you used to burn the sugar on top of a creme caramel. You know the flame like cook a stakeout, right? Took it with the flame or other ways. You know, you can. You're right, Lord. One of the way I'm gonna get out.

I don't know. I know. Well, anyway, they according to the people who watch the video, the steak looks kind of chewy. People are debating whether you you could really even cook it all the way through. But even if you can, would you even want it? So that is that? I'm just going to call that hash tag naturally, because I don't get to use that word enough. I think I think that's kind of a fun one. Okay, naturally, huh? I do like this. Naturally. Yes, naturally. Okay. So when Nintendo name it named name is his name ID. Is he okay?

And so they they love doctor and they loved him so much that he gets interviews with people like after Matthew McConaughey because math McConaughey is interviewing about she. I have no idea. This is like having me Give a a seminar on acting. It's ridiculous to stay in your lane. I'm a big fan of that It was an instagram interview, and he told Matthew McConaughey McConaughey that he thinks the U. S should have universal wearing of masks, which is interesting cause they said this on Thursday. You know what else happened on Thursday? That was when Joe Biden called for a national mass mandate for Americans to wear a mask, even when they're outside for the next three months at a minimum, which, of course to bring it in right after the election found she was asked if Cove in 19 is a respiratory illness by Makani and he said. Yes, And that's when Makana he asked about a national Bandaid on wearing masks. I'm sorry, Do you? Can you imagine having to wear a mask to the beach? Can you imagine your outside riding your bike or jogging and you have to wear a mask? Ori or you're You know you're just outside, walking to get some fresh air, And instead you're breathing your own air back in again Who? I just don't see this happening. I just don't like maybe I'm wrong. I just don't see American people going. Sure I'm on board with this one is a breaking point. It's the part of like the patronizing view of the American public that they're too stupid to handle this themselves. They're too dumb to know at the right moment when to put a mask on, so let's just mandated that they have to wear it all the time, even up to and including. Remember that story last week, one public health official I think it was in Wisconsin who was thing If you're on a zoom call, you should wear it during the call, so that you can convince the other people on the call that they should constantly be wearing their maths. Yeah, that's insane. Just remind Bill just so you can virtue signal shots around the house with a mask on this is like walking around your house of the mascot is more ridiculous than being in your car with a masked If you're the type of person who drives in your car by yourself with your mask on or does it with a zoom called They should make masks that say I'm with stupid and have the arrow just points straight up in your head. Three. Well, something else. The doctor, If out, she says, is that they're finding talk about things like that will sell out that mask. Yeah, that would sell out I've seen. I've seen months in a lot of very great mass can't go into that. But the other thing the doctor felt, she said, is that they're finding that temperature checks are not reliable for screening. Are you kidding me? Also, all the times you've got to get on a plane and all the subjects you will get your temperature check to do. They've gotta bounce her. If I want to go get my eyebrows and they got a bouncer outside. Can't get in the parking lot without having a temperature check. Never like and not so much. Nothing. Nothing works. It's like this entire, you know, pandemic. It's like, Oh, the thermometers. Don't really tell us anything. Not even the tests really tell us anything. Remember Ohio Governor Mike the line thought he had Corona virus. It was like how the test was a false positive. Was it a false positive? Or was the second test of false negative like it's a good question? Why don't we know anything? Why? Why do none of these things work? Well, the biggest story that because the left loves Fauci until he says something like this. In a Washington Post interview, he was asked whether he plans to vote by mail or by by mail in ballot or in person, and he said, I luckily voted in person. What I see in grocery stores when I see it, Starbuck, she could six or more feet. Stand here. Don't move until the person ahead. He moves. I believe the polling stations. We're going to do that.

"Been part of the Olympics historically speaking it's been part of an international hockey now it was at the all star game they did make it in and bring it inherently and but you know the penalty shot and you know shoot outs have been more of an intercalated in hockey on the worldwide stage then when you look at the home run derby that would be the only other issue I it just doesn't have that to lean on you know did you know they don't all it's is it a lot hockey is more away more international game you know what I don't understand you know Japan playing South Korea and stuff like that but in South America but you know I I think I don't know somehow I think I've talked myself actually I think I have I think I've dug myself into it because I think that it would be and you know I at first I was like man this is a terrible idea but now I'm I'm kind of thinking to be pretty exciting we pretty fun if you have five different things happening at once on your TV but I find out there doing a home run derby decide if the Mets are going to beat the nationals today like I'm into that yeah but if you have no chance of turning away that's for sure are you really deciding based on that who's the best that night well I mean it's not you know it's it's one I realize every game is going to be at a premium but it's you know it's it's just one that one skill and are your how how well can you do it I don't know who's pitching to the guys okay so then okay so let me bring up the and you hit upon the at the other layer to the argument of the discussion in such a short in the year you're going to have a home run derbies deciding games maybe it only happens to per team yeah maybe for argument's sake right but say in essence you're going to have you know anywhere from fifty or sixty times over the short MLB regular season deciding games and which games are going to take on such a more impact it important role because it's going to be more of a sprint then it is going to be a marathon as they say in Major League Baseball and that's going to help be a deciding factor about who goes into the playoffs and I remember who doesn't there they might actually and they they'll probably I would assume expand the playoff field too so little bit more room for error list this is something they wanted to do before the coronavirus ever hit so I think they'll use any excuse to expand the playoffs as you want as many teams vying for a playoff spot as possible for as long as possible well of course yeah in and out and I get that but we also have to see exactly you know how many teams they let in what kind of a toward I mean if it is a tournament would be how many best of series are you gonna have in essence where is the world here is going to be played you know how deep into the month of may be November you're going into B. as then you're looking at a neutral site but no we we talked about that and and discuss that in and that's highly you know that's very very conceivable and that is still on the table I guess it may be a little bit of a baseball purist Maggie I don't love it I understand we all have to adjust to the to the time's and I understand that sports is changing and maybe have T. embrace certain changes I just all love this idea by Justin Turner I don't I get the creative nature of it I just don't being a purist I I just don't it's a hard thing for me to get behind where I'm sitting there watching Yankees red Sox we go past ten innings up if that way park and all the sudden here comes Stanton judge and Gary Sanchez to decide the game for the Yankees going up against you know JD Martinez and who else I I don't know if I love that idea I think that the Yankees would love it that's wrong they have a distinct advantage I'm just look at it from an overall based perspective we had a couple questions out there for you on Twitter if you want to weigh in at at at at W. SK ad which is a good way to get touch the show we have our question of the day out which is if you are the jets and you can only trade and then signed one player would you rather be Jada king doc way the pass rusher for the Jacksonville Jaguars or Trent Williams the left tackle from looses Washington football team we have another one we if you cast the jets and giants front offices okay so this game from Terrell Lewis who joined us Tuesday the Alabama linebacker who during the combine was asked by the Baltimore Ravens executives in the people in the room at the time to cast them in a movie well the movie called and what actors would play the people who are sitting in front of him for the ravens so we did this for the jets and the giants Gettleman judging mera Chris Johnson Joe Douglas and Adam gase you could see how we picked at Emmett at W. F. A. N. and of course you can leave your responses below there you have it yes Eminem WFAA noise to get about one warm the it that rule with a trigger my memory you know Sam Neill maybe as as Chris Johnson maybe Sam Neill from Jurassic Park yeah Hey wait for red October did you guys come up with any better one that Brock Lesnar for Douglas I did not know I was taken back by the Brock Lesnar's suggests was it it would be as drivers will make monthly call makes the voice he doesn't speak so basically would Paul Heyman come out there at the presser and just start speaking from as he's standing there with his B. delivery generous character he mentioned that never got outside I live fifty sixty just curses and everybody right I had all these stupid question so forget about it I say Dustin Hoffman says Paul G. a body for judge I say Sam Rockwell just moves you said Matthew McConaughey McConaughey okay we are Marshall do you know ten times a year for a football coach I still I love we are Marshall movie ever John Mayer I have Jonathan the list gal yeah I didn't come up with a good we like that one for Christopher Johnson I've ed Harris for Douglas I mentioned Brock Lesnar for Adam gase Edward Norton I think I think Norton's the the best one okay so I did get your characterization of just great actors to play anyone a little bit he's a little he's very very good but I I I look I I was like looking at a Google image of gays and I was like man who could this be and it was it was it was Norton I think he can get there no doubt I do think it mac you came up with the James Cromwell Wright yeah from our job yeah that's the one James Caan James Cromwell is a good one for marriage okay yeah all right cool we got that set we're gonna set out that tweet Harris is gonna join us coming up next so excited to talk to the man holds the record most pinch hits ever in Major League Baseball but beyond that you know part of the Mets team a two thousand and one after baseball came back after nine eleven which the fed is gonna be running that game tonight he was also on the Florida Marlins team to beat the Yankees in three we just got interesting and he was a he was a third base coach for the Florida for the Miami Marlins when Giancarlo Stanton was on that team so maybe get a little insight into Giancarlo Stanton from one of his former coaches a lot to do looking forward to having you along with us Leddy Harris next Moussa Maggie hanging out.
