Trump's Town Hall On NBC To Overlap With Biden's On ABC
"A second presidential debate scheduled for tonight. And then the commission on Presidential Debates canceled that after the president contracted covert 19 and then set up a virtual format debate, president said, and not going to do it wasted time. So what you have tonight in the red corner is President Trump on NBC at seven o'clock and in the Blue corner, former Vice President Biden on a B C. I'm joined now by San Antonio. First news National correspondent Michael Bauer. Michael tell me, Is it just me, or is this just silly because it appears that it wouldn't be productive for either. No, You're absolutely right. This is not productive and by the way, not productive for anybody who's on the fence about their voting right now, either who I don't know, maybe wanted to see a couple of candidates who were going to try to challenge one another. Instead. We're getting another 90 minute town hall from both of them, which we've already seen. We've been there. We've done that. So it doesn't make any sense. And at the end of the day, you want to talk about a waste of time. I'm going to be watching one of these 90 minute town hall live while DVR ing the other one and immediately after the first one's done, Go and Watch the second one. That's 180 minutes. You want to talk about a waste of time? You could completely make that work together. We're in essence, looking at what the virtual debate was gonna look like anyways, just on different networks here, So it does seem like a waste of time. But as you aptly pointed out, this all comes from The definition of President Trump's positive Corona virus test that we could not clearly defined as Faras when the last negative test was before positive one, which may have allowed for an actual debate between these two D'oh than the virtual debate the president shut down then, when they canceled it, Joe Biden went over to ABC, and they gave him a town hall in the last 48 hours. NBC decided to do the same thing for President Trump at the same exact time, and that's why there's a huge backlash against NBC. Right now. They're the ones forcing this on us at the time when Joe Biden has got his town hall so you could have adjusted it by an hour earlier later, or you could have done it on a different day. But you decided with the exact same day because you wanted to make this about ratings. Absolutely And clearly and frankly, all we're going to know maybe the 1st 10 minutes, Charlie, and I think that's being optimistic. You'll have some answers for news stories in the headline like The Post Story about charisma for Joe Biden. Whether or not he gets a question on that will probably happen in the 1st 10 minutes. Trump on whether or not they kept secrets from the American public in regards to Cove it while warning donors over the Republican side, the things we're going to get bad that might be asked in the 1st 10 minutes outside of that, it's going to be everything we already know from a platform standpoints. There's nothing new to see there. And at the end of this, if this comes down to who had the higher ratings, that's who we should look at his winning this particular round of the presidential candidacy. That will be so 2020 for people who don't know the moderates. Savannah Guthrie, the moderator in Miami for Trump, George Stephanopoulos, the moderator in Philadelphia. For Biden. Town Halls are the questions Don't come from the moderator. Correct. They come from the audience. Yeah, you might remember about a month ago, President Trump had one while he was in Philadelphia with George Stephanopoulos. And you have people that were there in the hall that we're at least at least told everybody that they were independent voters who hadn't made a decision on who they were voting for. Yet Yet at that time, President Trump still managed to interrupt those people who are asking the questions on the people who left that hole so that they left feeling that President Trump I had both its light to them on a couple of different occasions, so it didn't necessarily go well for him. He has a great history with the town hall format himself. It will be interesting to see how that plays out here. But you're right. This is all whether or not the questions are theirs themselves. That they've written up or whether it was handed to them on the way up to the microphone is unclear, but it will be asked by the people of the audience. Well, now that we know the sacrifice that you're making, Michael the fact that you're going to watch one DVR the other one haven't decided which one you're going to watch. In which one you're gonna DVR. It will be a coin toss three shots of tequila that I'm looking at that tonight. Charlie
Fresh update on "michael bauer" discussed on Charlie Parker
"Michael Bauer with the latest on the presidential campaign, including the presidential debate this coming up on Thursday. Let's start on the debate. First of all, Michael we've got, they're going to have a mute button, but on ly during opening statements I think they should probably have it all the way through. But, you know, I don't always get my way and the president is demanding from the commission from the debate commission that they pretty much changed the focus of conversation on foreign policy. Yeah, he would like to see more foreign policy, which, I think is an interesting move, considering that you had a president in 2016, who ran on a very nationalist platform and being, you know, make America great again in America first, and now he wants to make it a foreign.

"Michael Bauer is here. Michael. What happens to this country? If we don't have a clear winner on November will buy advice. Be patient. Because I think we're going to be in a situation where the account where we're watching, usually on election night situation, and we get the coverage from the whatever organization you're watching. That's largely a predictive mode. Now. Those predictions from the networks have usually worked out with what the actual winner is on Election night. But the election process itself is set up for officially tabulating one month after the election, and I think we're going to use every last second every drop of that time. To get together our totals in total the amount of votes we have from people who are voting overseas in the military to people in this country. If their ballot is dated on election day, it still counts at every vote should count in this country. So I think there's going to be a timeframe now. Anything further than that we know Congress has sworn in on January 3rd. They meet in a joint session three days later to count those votes for an election, so that supposed to be the first part of it there. If there's a problem with the electoral vote, College Electoral College vote, or if there is an issue with getting a tabulation ready to go, then the Constitution has our aunts are ready to go, which is that the house will choose the president with each state, not each member. Casting a single vote in the Senate would choose the vice president under the Constitution. Those four year terms of president and vice president end on January 20th so they haven't figured anything out between the 3rd and 20 it on some level. Congress then has to kick into action and begin the Presidential Succession Act, which means Nancy Pelosi would become the president. And then that would be followed by president pro tempore of the Senate. Charles Grassley. On some level depending on how things go, then you'd have to go through members of the Cabinet from there. That's how this looks so hopefully we won't get to that point and hopefully there will be a winner decided by the time New Congress kicks in in January. But at the end of the day, I don't expect me personally, I do not expect to have an answer on election night or even the next day. I expect it's going to be a couple of weeks before we get an answer. Brilliant. Thank you. That's Michael Bauer on NewsRadio, 6 10 w TVs SPORTS..
US entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak
"Surpassed Britain as the country with the third highest Corona virus death toll on Friday. What happened across the United States we bring in Santonio, first news national correspondent Michael Bauer. So what did happen in the United States? We know that Dr Deborah Berke, the position overseeing the White House coronavirus response says. We entered a new phase here in this country, meaning that what we're looking at as Faras the pandemic goes is much different now than it was in March in April. That she says, is extraordinarily widespread that there because it was his belief that rural urban areas maybe someplace states and cities. Work socially distant enough from the rest of the country. This remote distance is going to keep us safe, not going to be an issue, she says. That's not happening anymore. We're in a place now where there is no corner of the country. That's safe enough from everything. So while we've been looking at Texas and Florida in Arizona and California for some time now, the Sunbelt states you're looking at over the past week period of time, the largest surge of infections happening in Alaska, Hawaii, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. So sort of all over the place. Some of those places way more distant from the rest of the country than others. And this is a clear indication that we're in a different level in a different phase right now, what's happening in this country. Now with that? Experts are also saying, Let's not forget we're about to possibly go back to school. We know that some colleges are going to be returning, and there's a concern that we major outbreaks in college towns, but also above and beyond that policy lab is this one group of Children's Hospital in Philadelphia that have been kind of showing models and pulling together models. They're looking at one right now that says As far as a likely spread over the next four weeks. Like who could be the next Texas who could be the next Florida? They're checking out some ominous trends that includes some really, really big cities like Baltimore in Chicago in Detroit, Philadelphia, ST Louis and Washington, Boston and New York. They're saying that they're keeping a close eye on those cities over the next four weeks because it looks like Some of these cases, air headed back those directions. Michael, are we getting a clear picture of exactly how many kids have tested positive for covert 19? It's what we're getting is because a lot of schools still haven't officially returned right. But we do know that some schools have gone back into session. And we know that at least in places like Indiana at one school district, where two kids tested positive and a teacher tested positive as well. They immediately day one shut down those squids at school district and went back to the At home learning process and doing things from a remote basis, and you're seeing those exact came some kind of situations all across the country. You're seeing them in Kentucky, you're seeing them and Utah. You're seeing them. Ah, hole across the country where kids are kind of starting to come back and then boom. There's this sort of exposure to on element of covert 19 in the classroom. My brother Isa teacher in Northern California he teaches high school students, and they just had two of their senior students test positive for covert 19 1 senior at another school in their district. And the school just for decided to shut things down until October. So my brother will be teaching from his classroom, But just on the computer to people who will be learning at home. So are we working on the honor system here? Our parents required by law to report if their child test positive. Uh, that's a great question. I don't know that they're required. I also don't know who's hiding that right now. I'm thinking that that's a good idea. I think you know the reality of the situation is school districts are asking and trying to figure out what it is that parents want to do and what the schools want to do from that point on there making decisions based upon that, But the minute you start talking about bringing a kid in who might be infected. And even though the symptoms aren't nearly as strong and kids or at least that's what the reports have been throughout what you've seen for adults and older people, they can still spread it, so they're still going to school. They can still pick it up and bring it home. And then they can spread it that way. So if you were looking to stop the spread period, it would seem likely the things they do. There is not put kids into a situation where it was worse back in March, but worse than where was back in March and trying to put them in and think that this is going to stop the spread. Meanwhile,
Judge rejects Ohio request to postpone March 17 primary until June
"Michael Michael Bauer Bauer on on board board our our NBC NBC national national correspondent correspondent and and got got the the voting that's taking place in well it was supposed to be Michael in for state turning today heroes on a Florida Illinois and Ohio but I understand Ohio's decided to wait awhile yeah I voters at least at this point will not be voting today the Ohio department of health issued an order last night to postpone the primary election citing the corona virus pandemic along with other concerns from the governor Mike DeWine there was a pitch made to a judge yesterday in order to shut this thing down because it was concerned of a corona virus that judge judge Richard fry declined the request saying that the postpone the vote would set a terrible precedent he was also indicating that with such short notice twelve hours at that time to go before the election that it was not in the order the order of a judge to make a decision like this in the diving should be left up to the legislature to cast their votes so I don't mind saying that they are going to have that boat gestures into because a day ago his secretary of state as well as the secretary of state's from the three other states that are also up for primaries today all sent out a letter saying we're going to have our election that we're doing everything we can to make sure that everything will be as healthy and clean and sanitized in order to post guidance from local health officials at voting locations we're all good to go and for some reason Ohio decided to back out of it meanwhile the other states right there from your great state of Florida and Arizona and Illinois are all moving forward at this point in time with their voting today for the primary and it looks as though if you're just kind of looking at some of the polling you're taking a look at Florida Biden is up by thirty eight points over us according to real clear politics up by thirty points over Bernie Sanders in Arizona between seventeen and twenty point over Bernie Sanders in Illinois by between twenty one and thirty eight point over Bernie Sanders whether or not this corona viruses slows down the what had been at least apparently clear cut a record number of people who are coming to the polls we get to see and does this slow down the show meant as they've been putting this is a victory for Bernie Sanders on some lights they give your slowing everything down from Joe Biden's side maybe this means that Bernie Sanders would have a chance with all this sort of pulls together again at least for Ohio after June second
Can Biden Recover in South Carolina?
"Bay and Michael Bauer on board here in our NBC news reporter here and we've got the big primary coming up Saturday tomorrow Michael and they're saying this is do or die for Joe Biden yeah and then that's pretty much the case right now as it stands if you're looking at the polling in South Carolina Joe Biden seems to be you know on average according to real clear politics about twelve point six points ahead of Bernie Sanders in South Carolina some polls have amid you know little is four percent start four points to lead some as high as twenty points in the lead and it needs to be a big turnout for Joe Biden if he's expecting to make a run here at super Tuesday and and keep this contest candidates are gonna be competing this is not a winner take all state when it comes to the democratic primary you're competing for fifty four pledged delegates and that'll be allocated proportionately based upon how you perform so this is a situation where Joe Biden really needs an overwhelming performance in order to keep anybody not named Bernie Sanders alive in this kind of a race the word is that the Democrats the mainstream Democrats are ready to do anything they can to stop Bernie from getting the nomination because they're concerned that they might even lose the house if this guy wins the nomination and they're pretty much concerned and he and got a chance to beat trump N. so they're ready to stop him they're talking about the super delegates who can vote however they want to apparently and they're saying that the super delegates for about to mass and then go to somebody else and all agree on one candidate yeah that that definitely has the plans for that have been you know gone overlooked over it is all very feasible and possible you know Bernie Sanders of course is wouldn't want that to happen and and we've all seen in the past certainly twenty sixteen where Bernie Sanders kinda got a raw deal in regards to everything the DNC was after when they've you know pushed forward Hillary Clinton in that position so it's not to say that something like that couldn't happen again I would certainly point out to the DNC that I think it's possible to Bernie Sanders has shifted the entirety of the Democratic Party based upon what he did in twenty sixteen and and how his beliefs and then what he used for his campaign has kind of taken it the the Democratic Party further left than they have as an entire party not just a big stream portions of it so there are parts of what you're looking at here Bernie Sanders and specifically of Bernie Sanders walks away with a win in South Carolina it's going to be time for Joe Biden the pulled up it's it's it's likely that Sanders would then end up with just slightly more than half of the pledged delegates after super Tuesday there would be no clear alternative to him and and Biden's campaign would be devastated by South Carolina probably dropping out so that's what could happen and that's what's on the line for what goes down on Saturday right now get a twelve point lead in most of the average for most polls for for Joe Biden but Bernie Sanders if you were able to bounce back from that could make this his rate and put an entirely huge spotlight on this race that he is right now in the lead with nobody out there to challenge him what about the other wasn't what about the other Democrats that are on there you know that are on the ticket here with Elizabeth Warren someone like her where she doesn't look like she's performing very well in the polls but she could potentially be a vice presidential candidate when or when the time comes our put candidates like that that are so far behind but still in the race how how does this next week look for them all the other part of it too that you have to look at is while somebody like Elizabeth Warren isn't particularly polling well in South Carolina on a national poll she is number two behind Bernie Sanders and then you usually got Joe Biden in third place there so that could mean something bigger comes super Tuesday but again since you've got a short turnaround between South Carolina and super Tuesday so like you can really get out there and do a whole lot of stomping you just got a matter of days are this is a situation where Elizabeth Warren could still show up well in in polls and added certainly voting for super Tuesday and people like Amy Klobuchar people like people to judge I think if they don't show up well in South Carolina if they don't show up well on super Tuesday they're going to have to think twice about what it is they're doing there people like Bloomberg's dire have bottomless pockets so they can keep paying as long as they want to stay in this and pretend that there's somebody who can actually compete on some level until they realize that they are and then they're going to have to just kind of give you the support somebody or walk away send their money elsewhere but that's the way this is breaking down right out lease from all appearances again a strong showing from Biden makes this a challenge and certainly puts us into a place where super Tuesday could mean more and become a tighter race well that's going to be the big day this coming super Tuesday fourteen different states and forty percent of the voters will make their wishes known and then Michael we will talk to you on Monday the other guys have a great day Michael Bauer our NBC news

"It's five twenty three on A. M. Tampa Bay in Michael Bauer on board here right now our NBC news reporter who had such a wonderful time last night watching the debates so he could report on force this morning keeping us from having to watch him it's a nap time yet isn't that they did you sleep okay last night Michael I let's put it this way the last fifteen minutes of the debate I slept right through it and then until I got up this morning so it's been a long night with a long night of watching these debates it was a long night of seeing the in fighting going on with Democrats and and really honestly I think the biggest payoff moment is that this is the way I buy side best described last night we watched what new Yorkers have long been aware of that Michael Bloomberg is a wooden charisma vacuum with one minute wait a minute they wouldn't charisma vacuum with no natural talent for campaigning it was I mean you would think this guy had not prepared at all for debate didn't know the questions were coming didn't know the Elizabeth Warren was gonna open up with a haymaker like Mike Tyson he had no idea anything like that was going to happen he looked deer in the headlights for the most part of the evening and that it didn't really bode well for what I think is going to be well bees at this point right now the same six candidates are said to be on the debate stage next week in South Carolina I can't imagine that he's going to be able to improve after a week's worth of time here so I expect more the same coming up next week in South Carolina Michael I'm watching this last night into your point I'm watching former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg and I'm thinking earlier in the day or yesterday when we found out that he qualified for the debate stage he was so upset like he knew he was praying that he would not qualify for that debate states last night because he knew he was not ready to go well you know it's interesting think of other because I was thinking how the you know he was probably ready to come all guns blazing have energy ready to go make his case the public he's not on the ballot Nevada you're not on the ballot and South Carolina you've got nothing to lose just get up there and tell everybody who you are that's what you get and he couldn't even do that I mean look absolutely dole and would name when he tried to lay out some of his attacks they fell flat but that's traditionally what's happened with Michael Bloomberg from day one it's used he doesn't have that personality to make that happen to pull that off and I mean he laid into Bernie Sanders about being a socialist who had three homes in was a millionaire and that fell flat it was it was just not it did not look good for Michael Bloomberg glass I now to be fair you're up against it when you're looking at that bad that panel last night Elizabeth Warren who may have been some people are calling may have had the best presidential primary debate ever last night she may have had the what she she was sucker punching her way through every single person on stage there and walking away with incredible time and rounds of applause now why I love it's going to help our campaign but Michael Bloomberg played the perfect foil he was the billionaire that she has been fighting against and fought against last night on that stage at every turn so it I think it didn't help him out all to have her have her best performance but in this particular case it it certainly came off as a slump for him I don't see yeah I agree with you Warren probably had the best performance last night or certainly one of the two or three best and but I don't see her is emerging as a candidate a good chance of somebody like Biden got it or maybe even Bernie that she could be the vice presidential candidate but yeah that kinda remains to be seen right now yeah and it'll be interesting to see if she is able to walk away you know she's she had that's one shouldn't do well I wouldn't do well in Hampshire will be interesting to see if she can pick up any votes here in about I you know it would seem that as of the performance would be that she you should be aware she gonna get that from because nobody didn't have that many votes to begin with that she pulled from a club which are Blue Ridge as you pull them from Bernie Sanders I'm not exactly sure where that would come from so that when all we can be seen here this weekend but she did have a stellar performance last night and let's face it Bernie didn't do anything to ruin his chances so at this point still seemingly the front runner at Biden's continually going down the drain you get he didn't necessarily do anything to stand out last night and he really needed to yeah I think he's pretty well finished but Michael Bauer is not and take a nap here today Michael I will right now thanks I appreciate Michael our our NBC news radio reporter here on a M.

"michael bauer" Discussed on WHAS 840 AM
"Test takers one Michael Bauer from NBC news radio our Mike let's start with the the idea that both sides are claiming that either Nancy Pelosi is making a huge mistake by not sitting over the articles of impeachment because she does have a great case or what once ideas the other side is saying it's a brilliant stroking now because it leaves both president trump and the Republicans twisting in the wind and tell us of the get settled here with those of the Senate and and how they're gonna go about taking on the articles of impeachment should they ever arrive yeah this is this is this is I think exactly what Nancy Pelosi was looking to do while holding off on the articles of impeachment heading up on Christmas vacation is exactly that kind of a conversation exactly see how things would fall together and hoping that there would be some pressure put on its McConnell that there would be almost a forcing if you will of a meeting between McConnell and Chuck Schumer to talk about what would happen in the Senate that's what she's looking for the end of the day is what is going to happen in the Senate what kind of a trial will be a fair trial so that's why at least all indications are initially that's why she's holding back on turning over these articles of impeachment and let's face it since that time we've seen the release of email detailing a White House withholding military aid from Ukraine we've seen it see GOP senator speaking out against which means we're carnal Mitch McConnell and whether or not he's partisan as it comes to this trial in the Senate concerns about that portion of things and you seem president trump frankly go on some tweet hate against Nancy Pelosi for the better part of the last couple of days all of which seemingly comes down to where is my acquittal in my exoneration going and why are we there yet although there are some reports coming out of the White House that seem to indicate that the president again wants to go back and has been flip flopping on you do you want to light the trial or short trial in the Senate he seems now to be going back to the lengthy trial for the sole purpose of trying to embarrass Democrats while the trial is going on so I think all of that is putting a little bit of pressure Mitch McConnell to to have a discussion here to to to really come up with what's in the lines I mean it throws the ball completely McConnell's court and this is the situation one Antipolis knows she can't wait forever she can't hold off on this forever the only other thing she could do and you're seeing some Democrats speculate does is that she could do what would be the equivalent of a pocket veto it either which kind of putting the motion aside until they just don't deal with it anymore in time runs out on dealing with it and in essence saying look here in the house we determined that the president has been impeached and we know that over in the Senate there's no point in sending anything over because the Majority Leader has made it clear he has no interest in a fair trial so we we're just gonna let it stand at the houses in peace the president were to move forward from there and if she does move in that direction it may certainly question any constitutionality of her impeachment but it would also get back to the element of let's get into twenty twenty let's talk about health care let's put the pressure on president trump to get himself reelected here well we've all been talking about concerns about what it's like for him to be a leader in this country well I mean we know that impeachments and and I think that McConnell is right about this that that they're not been on bipartisan even Adam Schiff is admitted to the added to it points in time to **** Pelosi was not sure about going into the impeachment simply because she wanted if it would be a stain on the Democrat so I'm not quite sure it's easy in a I I see where you're coming from we've heard this story of first of all it we should have this bi partisan look in view of things the Democrats didn't make it bipartisan when Republicans want to bring what they said order testimony to witnesses and now certainly McConnell on the roof and the Republicans are making it non or bi partisan by not allowing the you know save take for example boulder anybody else up here before I would point out again once again the fact in this is you what you're gonna see from Democrats that they didn't have a trial in the house there was no trial and houses was investigation this was back getting the trial happening in the Senate and the when each of the one hundred senators are supposed to be swearing in as impartial jurors that's where you don't generally have not just the it forget the part where you say or don't say that you are impartial or non impartial when you're working with the White House in regards to how the trial will be set up since you're working with the person that's accused whatever the the the the situation is here I worked with them closely and that seems to be were a big portions comes into play you could recuse yourself and we've seen that happen.

I'm doing well are you that this morning very good so Bloomberg I mean that Sir the E. we I don't know if we needed another democratic candidate but he obviously was not was not impressed with the current field you're looking at somebody in Bloomberg who has experience going face to face with Donald Trump somebody who has the ability clearly to get under the skin of Donald Trump somebody who has numerous times question the business accurate of Donald Trump and according to him Michael Bloomberg he has way more money than Donald Trump does I think those are all things that equal up to president trump sort of having to answer key to Michael Bloomberg on some level this is been happening for decades in New York of course I don't know what that translates to get him on to a debate stage against president trump unclear if that's the case is again a candidacy for the democratic party certainly seems in big question right now another seventy year old white guy getting on to the stage for Democrats I think they've had their share of that on stage at this point I think are you a good majority of younger democratic voters are looking for a younger candidates not necessarily somebody was seventy seven years old and is a big supporter of Wall Street business so I think there are some things there that don't working Bloomberg favor on the other side of that great name recognition I mean maybe even more so than anybody else on that stage and even at this point I don't what we're supposed to be trimming down the democratic field and and starting to get people to move off of that so we get a better understanding of who the Democrats may be interested in looking at I think you're looking at in Michael Bloomberg at least in some of the polling we saw two weeks ago when there was a rumor that he may be getting back into it you had it you go CBS poll the went to eighteen key primary states and without a quarter of likely democratic primary voters have an unfavorable view of him and that's much higher than any of the other candidates that are out there right now so because of that Republican Democrat flip flopping on whatever the wind blows that's what he's going to be that seemingly had a lot of questions going for democratic voters yeah I mean that was one of the issues if he's got the criticism of the feel of Canada right now it's been you know a Joe Biden's too old Bernie Sanders is to will Joe Biden is the same age as Michael Bloomberg and then are the rest of the country tired of new Yorkers I mean this battle in the city it fine for New York here we get it but does the rest of the country care yeah one I think you being a little bit of that play out in like the democratic debates now Joe Biden who's been attacked by some Democrats on stage hasn't necessarily given the answers of democratic voters are looking for been able to give those kind of answers maybe they're figuring out me he's losing a little bit he's to all I think Michael Bloomberg ever have a better response to some of those attacks and certainly ones would come forward from president trump on some level but you're right at the end of the day it's another seventy seven year old white guy that entering this race here and I don't know I mean I think there's a lot to be said for people like that the Buddha judges who are out there that the you're starting to see a strong support swell up for and when you got Michael Bloomberg having to apologize for stop and frisk policy in New York City even though that's certainly did help clean up the city on a grander scale on the bigger nationwide scale I think that there are bigger elements for democratic voters you have to answer to because of that policy and then that are you able to say well we can do something like that but I'll have to alter here I don't know if that changes in the voters minds either you know is is dumb as it is really even though I thought it was a ridiculous policy I think a lot of people just know him as the the billionaire big soda guy trying to take you know the nanny state guy that's going to be somewhere he's he's got some businesses right you've got Pete since he left office and it's gone back into sort of the private sector if you will he's got some things that you can fighting you know tobacco usage in peak usage since two thousand seven he somebody who has is every town gun safety which he held back in twenty fourteen to the battle over gun legislation and you've got the beyond carbon which is a company founded earlier this year to advocate for energy reforms all those seem to fit right into the Democratic Party you know but where's he been in that and if you can take corporate money for any of that because that could throw off democratic voters ninety seven thirty one million of his own dollars on a TV ad blitz so we'll see I'll gonna say Bridgette seems to making a little move and surprisingly Biden's pole number still seem to be fairly strong don't think they are they're not they're not great and he does seem to be slipping he's kind of you know falling back and forth depending on where you're looking on the top forty kind of moving around in there but I think certainly strong enough now here's the other thing Bloomberg going in he's kind of picking up in about four percent right now which is still higher than some of the candidates that would be on that stage is still higher than available rocker some of the others so he's not necessarily walking in at the lowest part he possibly could but that also doesn't mean that it's going to continue that way the numbers may drop off course nine Michael Bauer thanks

Trump says gun-control legislation is moving ‘very slowly’
"H. as well there is work in Washington DC board and expanded background checks and it's being done by the US Attorney General William Barr at least they can purchase to some while Republicans and others to expand background checks what's the latest Michael Bauer worse is going. that's going to be the questioner Tony at the end of the day all the talk and discussion is happening on Capitol Hill the visit from William Barr talking all the Republican senators and representatives the is it going to go any place because after summer mass shootings it seems as though the White House and Congress are kind of quietly working on a plan to require background checks for all commercial firearm sales implied the big thing that's holding everybody off his understanding exactly what it is president trump wants what will he throw his weight behind what kind of a gun control package and no one at this point seems to know what you'll support so bill Barr was out of the hill this week talking to members about gun control and and Lindsey Graham said they're just kind of talking right now we're trying out some new ideas on expected background checks were tossing ideas around other having all kind of discussions but again the one concern because everybody just seems to stop short Republicans in the Senate are treading cautiously over this concept the background checks because they just don't know if the president because supported and under Barr's proposal that he's been pitching it would have background checks that would be extended to include all commercial sales including gun shows the check would also be conducted to a federal firearm license or new we create a class of licence transfer agents work sellers could keep their own records for sale though they could also allow the federal firearm license to store them if they wish to do that and then there would be an element of the red flag rules there were if if the if you were having you had a firearm and on a legal level they determine that you were a threat they could take the firearm away from you so these are all things that are being talked about and discuss these are all things that senators like Lindsey Graham or or John Cornyn John Kennedy Doug Collins are all having discussions about but that's kind of where it stops because until they get any idea and right now they feel they have no idea what the president would support until they get some sort of an idea they feel like they can't really work on putting pen to paper getting anything done they produce Republican George has a question he had was so what happens if another administration comes in and wanna make sure there are safeguards against that because there's only one step between a registry and confiscation I mean. that would be a big leap but you know there are some people that believe that we could happened. it should emit safety and their. I'm sorry you said what Michael that sounds like it would be a legitimate safety to debate the you would want to place into some sort of legislation that you want to have some kind of element of understanding the you couldn't just come in and confiscate when need be the second man was still with the
Dozens were trapped below deck in California boat fire
"Over the weekend a massive both fire of the cell a southern California coast early yesterday old it yesterday I'm skinny skews me and the death toll rising joining us to talk about this story ABC news radio's Michael Bauer Michael what happened yeah the fear is right now that none of the passengers on board survived you're looking at thirty nine people according to the Coast Guard that were on board this vessel twenty five bodies have been found that one of the five that were the crew that got out safely so we're looking at nine people at this point that are missing in they will go into recovery mode coming up here this morning to try to see if they can recover those bodies so we know that the fire on the vessel started in the early hours yesterday while the boat was anchored off Santa Cruz island which is about ninety miles west of Los Angeles a Coast Guard you play there they got some made a call around three thirty in the morning indicating that the boat was engulfed in flames at that point now some suggestions from people that have been aboard this very **** before who has a a fantastic record of not just being a ship that's well maintained and top working order of it that the the companies that but that that sends these boats out on diving excursions has been a top notch company as well one of the big concerns was that this boat the way that it's set up the lay out for the blueprint if you will as may be led to this particular disaster where you've got the people who were on the crew on the upper part of the deck may have been sleeping that then you would have the galley the kitchen area in between and then down below is where the passengers would have been sleeping now the only way to get out from down below is to take a small staircase up through the galley and you have to get out of the galley through the main cabin to get outside so if there was a fire in the galley if there was a fire anywhere near that stair case it would have prevented them from having access to get out with one exit only in that may have been what we're looking at here we don't know what caused the fire yet and that's still something that they're looking into but if there were a fire in the galley in the kitchen area there. it would have prevented anybody from getting out from the lower deck so I understand the people down below were sleeping at the time what was that about yeah three thirty one is a weekend's trip to this is the final day of a weekend diving excursion that was going on but the people who pay for a three day event for them to be able to go out and go do some diving so three thirty in the morning that leads to the belief is at this point everybody was down below getting the rest in before getting up for their final day of diving in this particular island the Santa Cruz island there so they would've been sleeping at this point and depending on where this fire may have come in the place they may not have been able to get out or there could have been a situation where smoke from the fire may have caused some smoke inhalation while they were sleeping on some level so there are on board this there are these up what they call like suppressors fire suppresses they've got some of the the doors that are are closed did not allow fire into the next room or next a passageway in any element but that's usually for the engine room area that facility made out of had these kinds of suppressive elements involved in the galley so a lot of questions will come into play here and and that they're going forward it may be something the maritime law is going to have to further investigate as well the CDC also with the building of some new federal regulations come out for access to to escape these kinds of grabbing a secondary or tertiary exit plan on some level you think that would be something will have to be addressed here good talk with Michael imports them the better really terrible story of the weekend Michael Bauer Johnny's NBC
El Paso shooting is being treated as a case of 'domestic terrorism'
"So as investigations both into el Paso Texas and date Ohio or going on especially el Paso with this man had a manifesto Michael Bauer joins us from NBC news radio and it was clear that he did not like people that came from Mexico into our country and the manifesto was more than disturbing Michael it definitely was he he kind of pay tribute to the gunman who killed fifty one Muslims at two mosques in New Zealand earlier this year cited white supremacist theory which is known as the great replacement that theory holds that a lead are working to destroy the white race by replacing them with Hispanic immigrants and refugees and this was part of his motivation for why he drove some seven hundred miles from his home to el Paso to have this kind of shooting occur and then these these charges that but charges that they're working right now says in the FBI are looking at the to hate crimes in firearms charges both could carry death penalty sentence against this guy in and they are looking now officially at this as a domestic terrorism investigation you might even rob Rosenstein that the former deputy Attorney General over the weekend tweeted out the killing random civilians to suppress the to spray some political messages terrorism the F. B. I. classifies it as domestic terrorism but white terrorism is more precise many of the killers are lone wolf losers indoctrinated to hate through the internet just like Islamic terrorists so he's calling this even more specific element of domestic terrorism specifically why terrorism that is going to have to be addressed here about your hearing not just the democratic candidates but others in battle Rourke who is from el Paso sitting there talking with folks in el Paso coming off of his is democratic candidacy tour to to to stop and and and and and take care of people and visit folks who were in the hospital after the shooting indicating that he has concerns that this is exactly the kind of language in this manifesto the president is reiterating when he speaks to different events specifically ones aimed at immigration so big concerns from people that direction the president expected to talk about ten AM this morning so not sure if he's got a plan in place he wants to see implemented but supposedly the White House have been working on something all weekend long that's the I. director Christopher ray was getting go by Congress just a couple weeks ago on these types of issues interestingly enough he said that they really don't investigate ideology even if it's repugnant but if violence is that is it just always wait and see I thought the FBI would always kind of star detailing someone you know what whether it's at the dark web if you will or social media with this are kind of deal just to see kind of where their thoughts and what they're doing would be I think it's a I think there are red flag words phrases those kinds of things that pop up in because attention to be drawn to but I don't know if that necessarily means that there is a follow up outside of that day they'll they may look at it similar to a Facebook look at those kinds of things of those red flags are popped up or if they have users that are giving the morning side but like in this particular case with the guy that we're talking about here that shot no Paso he didn't post his manifesto two eight chant until minutes before you did the shooting so wasn't like it existed up there for a lengthy period of time that FBI investigators could look at it and then began an investigation on behind the scenes this guy may have prevented the shooting he didn't even posted until minutes before hand so I I don't know how much necessarily how much help is is brought from these kinds of red flags up I've suppose warnings will be good and and the ability to look into things good in the case of the Dayton shooter that guide reportedly had police taking him off of a school bus at one point time when he was in high school because it a kill list at a rate list for girls that at this point in time it's unclear why there was no further investigation or whether or not they had any call to pull this guy off the street certainly that would have been concerned about his legal purchases for arms if there were a red flag in his record but that didn't happen either good to talk with you thanks Michael for your time this morning Michael our
DOJ tells Mueller to limit scope of testimony
"It is one of the most anticipated congressional hearings in the years Robert Muller's testimony but what can we expect one of the interesting part about if we have that right off the bat all eyes expected to be on Capitol Hill with the exception of one set of eyes president trump said on Friday that he does not plan to watch former special counsel Robert Muller testimony I for one find it hard to believe I think it's gonna wait and see if Republicans can get some questions in here in regards to the steel dossier whether they get some questions in regards to the anti trump bias in the FBI agents I think all of that is going to become a big portion of the present so rest assured I'll have the split screen only have one screen of the entirety of the Mahler questioning that's going on the mall hearings and then I'll have my my iPhone right there open up to present from Twitter just follow along with one thing there but this is most definitely going to be Democrats are hoping this is going to be must see television moment because we know only three percent of Americans have read all of the Miller report only ten percent of Americans have read some of the mall a report so you're looking at somewhere in the range of ninety seven plus percent that Republicans are hoping to hit with having a live television version of the mall a report here because we know Robert Muller said he's going to limit his talking to everything that is within the four corners of the report and that seemingly is what Democrats want they would be happy with him sitting down like was twelve the night before Christmas opening report and reading from that because they feel like that will give the public an understanding increased understanding of what's actually in the report not the interpretation from the Attorney General not the interpretation from president trump of the interpretation of the Attorney General but from all of themselves so it's going to be interesting for walks like me to kind of watch the questioning going on and how Robert Muller answers not even you know what the answer may be about how he's gonna answer will start to bring up some L. interest elements as to what's going to happen going for here specifically Democrats in August that are running for president as well as how Republicans are gonna be able to tackle some of those questions Miller says he won't necessarily talk about and I don't know that anything new is going to be revealed to you yeah yeah that's what it seems like because I mean if the Republicans can get him to talk about the steel dossier if they can get him to talk about FBI agents then maybe you've got some new information to that's not stuff that in the mall the report right now so if you get that that's fantastic and then I think the other side of that is because you're right there's not going to be a lot of new in regards to this it'll just be Democrats trying to clarify things with Robert Muller I think Republicans can kind of play back a little bit I think they can play a little soft on the questioning of Robert Muller because they've got something on their side public opinion right now public opinion is tilted against impeachment the way it currently stands so they don't necessarily have to go for school on Robert Muller Ali can just let Democrats kind of messed things up or ask confusing questions or get shot down time and time again by Robert Muller and that may be their best approach in this whole thing probably so because I know I know they're they're they're trying to pull this out they've been trying to pull this out since the president got elected and it but I'm I can't help but think that it's going to backfire if they push it too hard yeah I think that's the key and I think your democratic for both sides depending on how you ask the question specifically we're talking about Robert Miller this is not somebody who's kind of surprised to getting a subpoena incoming Robert Muller has had like sixty of these kinds of hearings in his time in office so he knows how this works he knows how to go about it he knows how to play the so this is you're not going to spring something new on it with that and I think with that both sides have to be careful as the way they come across and then at the end because the with let's face it leave you're not going to have ninety percent of America watching this and that's what Democrats are hoping to get but they are going to try to get as each second try to collect as many you know viral clips that they can spread on social media or ones that they can put into the news on some level that will last throughout this month of August when they're off on vacation and more importantly with some of the democratic candidates being able to use this talking points going forward and twenty twenty well indeed and and I know a lot of people think it is a vacation I mentioned a little bit of it is but as senator Lankford just mentioned earlier in the program he's gonna be spending time going around the state talking to people which I think most of the constituents especially the ones up for election should be doing thank you for the update to Michael Bauer on newsradio
Trump, Nancy Pelosi And President discussed on Lee Mathews
"Controversy over president trump's tweets aimed at the squad continue to be addressed day before yesterday and Nancy Pelosi pulled out a house vote in what I'm interested in Michael Bauer who's joining us from twenty four seven news is what did they vote on and why so much drama you're looking at probably the end result here that the policy was looking to get that win the history of the one under sixteen Congress's written Democrats will be recorded as having condemned the US president for the first time in more than one hundred years and they did that by a mainly partisan vote only for Republicans and one former Republican turned independent just a March join the Democrats in casting this vote but it was passed in the rebuke wasn't embarrassing one for trumpet appealed to GOP lawmakers to not go along those four plus the one kind of going white in sync with what Democrats were putting on the table there and there's a lot of drama in regards to this now the measure itself that as past carries no legal repercussions for the president and the vote was for all intents and purposes is partisan as you can get minus the four Republicans which is unlikely to cost him anything with his Die Hard conservative base but there was a lot of drama in the houses went down yet Nancy Pelosi talking about why they were leveling these charges against the president saying that it was up to Democrats and Republicans to join us in condemning the presence of racist tweets and that's when Doug Collins started jumping in the Republican Rome Georgia Abschied net people if you want to rephrase her comment because house members are barred from making disparaging remarks about the president on the house floor so the resolution aimed at criticizing the president and then how he had said that these are the women in the end the squad's go back where they came from policy said that she had cleared her remarks with the parliamentarian before she read them now that's not true we had at that point in time a manual cleaver who is running the the entire B. was presiding over this entire hearing at one point in time shortly after this interaction literally dropped his gavel and say I abandon the chair he basically said listen you people here in the house only want to escalate things you wanna fight you want to escalate you don't want to get anything done there's nothing in what we're seeing here he said this that this morning but that was after numerous people that were speaking in the house were saying disparaging things about the president he was just trying to get through the vote so that with the least embarrassing amount of time that we could possibly have as a country looking at what's going on in our house and he said he couldn't take it anymore he was embarrassed he walked out that led to two hours of debate and a whole bunch of marking is just what we're going to go down next I including Steny Hoyer who's been in the house since ninety one going he'd never seen anything like this before and frankly didn't know what to do but the other day but they passed the resolution and now they will be written in the history as the other group that has up for the first time in more than a hundred years condemned the president the United States well now does it go on to the Senate where I know it'll die that's the whole point yeah we've seen the Chuck Schumer was thinking about trying to come up with a similar type of wording for a vote in the Senate this may put some pressure on them I we all know how much McConnell is when it comes to vote on the Senate floor so I don't foresee this going much further than that I think this is going to be the furthest that this goes in and you're starting to see the reality sort of kicking here and I think you're gonna start the Democrats walking away from it in that there's a new Reuters Ipsos public opinion poll showing that president trump actually gained five percentage points amongst Republican supporters and then a lost among Democrats and independents since the Sunday tweet storm and with that his overall approval numbers remain unchanged so according the poll forty one percent of the US public so the approved of his performance in office fifty five disapproved and that hasn't changed from last week so would seem as though all of this hubbub all of the update the outrage if you will was mainly focused on the fact that this came into and was solely wrapped around social media and then sort of evolved into something the television and radio picked up and covered on but reality is this is something that isn't really moving the needle at least at this
Trump joining world leaders to mark 75th anniversary of D-Day
"Also the president and Milania host of the formal dinner dinner Prince Charles, and his wife Kabila. And of course, now the president on to celebrate the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. Let's talk it over Michael Bauer. A lot of things on the agenda today. What's the latest? Good morning. We're looking at the president joining the Queen, as well as prime minister of England in Portsmouth England, the launching point for the troops that went off to Normandy, for the day landings on June six. So this is all part of the commemoration of the seventy fifth anniversary of the d day landings on this, the final day of President Trump's, visit, you'll be joined by Theresa May's going to host fifteen world leaders to honor the largest combined land air, and naval operation in history in those figures from every country that fought alongside the UK will be there to make a joint statement, pledging to ensure that the. Horror of World War, Two is not repeated other signing thing called the day proclamation, sixteen signatories, including the UK and US committing to work together to resolve international tensions peacefully, which is sort of a reiteration, if you will, of the standing of NATO, which is an interesting element, because the president has been critical of NATO has been critical of our traditional European allies as well. And yesterday you saw a press conference Theresa May indicate that those NATO allies have been paying up in regards to the volume of money for defense that the president had been asking for and the president seemed to recognize that yesterday as well. That's

"Com. Michael Bauer joins us now from Washington DC. The Dow plunged almost five hundred points, enter China said it would raise tariffs on sixty billion US billion dollars worth of US goods. But Michael, the president said there's not much reason to panic. Yeah. That's gonna be tough to do. I think that's that's what he's calling for. He's saying that this is something that will happen in a long haul, and we will get to the point where we are getting a fair deal with China on some level. But in the meantime, what the I guess the markets have recognized on the global level is that we are officially in this trade war with China. Basically wants China announced that it would be imposing tariffs on sixty billion dollars worth of US good starting to. I you saw the Dow is six hundred seventeen points s and p five hundred down two point four percent. Nasdaq composite report for now the markets opened up healthier that they went on the rise this morning. But again, let's see if that carries out through the rest of the day here. Bloomberg estimated the yesterday's plunge lopped off a trillion dollars more than a trillion dollars off stock markets around the world. And I think the deal is this and the big question for markets everywhere is this how long is this thing gonna last their negotiations going on right now? According to Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin there are, but there's no indication that there's a deal in place. Anytime soon the president is saying that he's going to talk with him paying when they get to the g twenty summit late in June. So you got about six weeks before that happened? And while there are some businesses that might be able to withstand that kind of fluctuation or or volatility if you will in the market, some people like farmers and small businesses aren't going to be able to withstand that some farmers who haven't even been able to plant in the mid west because of the flooding that has been going on are now looking at we'll when we do get crops going and pulled together we're going to have this tariff. That's on top of it. We've seen our stock already. Go down. We may or may not have tons of some form of whatever that crop is that we've got sitting in a warehouse just festering right now nothing happening, and we can't get our our products out there. And while the president is promising for farmers on some level, some assistance, it's not necessarily helping the farmers on a long-term level right now. So while our economy is a country, maybe able to put up with this for six weeks, three months. I don't know what it'll be able to technically put. With it'll depend on Galatian that doesn't mean the same thing for farmers and other small businesses that may have to call it quits because of these terrorists. Indeed now to put it in perspective. And and I'm I'm I'm not a I'm not a pollyanna about this. You know, nobody likes to see dips in the stock market. But it's it's not like the crash of two thousand eight where the banks were the ones losing the money. The banks were the ones that were going down. I mean, these these are stocks that go up and down and up and down all the time. So I'm not at all certain that the economy can handle it a little bit. The a little bit of the ups and downs. Likewise, does not the at least new York Stock Exchange have certain circuit breakers built in if things fall too fast too quickly. They can just walk away from trading. Extent. Yes. That's the case. It would indicate certainly a bigger problem on a global level that even if you walk away from that trading portion of the you'll still have to come back and answer to it at some point. And not, you know, at the end of the day, it it's it's a measuring tool really more than anything else. It's kind of you know, trying to get a barometer for what's happening on global markets and in business in general, and what we saw yesterday was kind of a big indicate. Okay, while we're officially in this trade war. So that's the big indicator yesterday. Now, we have seen just in the past week alone based upon this possibility of a trade war, we've seen stocks fall, and then climb up one day, and then at the very end of that day fall again, so they're going to be kind of following how that goes in line here. But again, one of the bigger concerns is how long will this go on because the president's indicating that there's an additional three hundred twenty five billion dollars worth of Chinese goods that would come into this country that have not been taxed ever that. He's thinking about implementing a twenty five percent tariff on and that is going to show. Well, now, we're escalating and then in he does that what is? China going to do and that s collation is really going to have the concern not just in our economy, but global economies as well, and that will be a big deal as far as the way things are perceived in scene between the two countries going forward and one of the other concerns about that right now is how President Trump is looking at tariffs that most people in an economic world right now that the president's got misguided views about tariff saying that the tariffs that he's importing. They put on imported goods from China are forcing China to pay money to the US treasury, which just is not true right now when a tariff is placed on that Chinese good the company bringing that product into the country has to pay that higher price. And usually that goes down to the consumer who's getting it. So it's not China. That's paying other words. It's Americans that are paying that tax on the products. And that's something that, you know, if pushed forward by the president continue to be pushed forward that misguided strategic view that could end up seriously damaging the world economy, but at the same time, it seems to me working because he said don't panic earlier today and the Dow is back. Up two hundred points from the five hundred lost yesterday. So.

Even though you had the attorney general there who was supposed to be talking about budgets was supposed to be talking about his next budget of for the twenty twenty year for fiscal year, twenty twenty and in fact out of the first ninety minutes. Eight minutes worth of budgetary talk in the ninety minutes stretching and the rest of it was all about the mullahs report. And why he's doing what he's doing? He's redacting what he's redacting. And even though the attorney general has promised a redacted version of the four hundred page report within a week that did not make people in congress. Very happy was kind of a relief to hear that for them. But frankly, when he also added to congress, and the public would then have the ability to go over the document and determine for themselves if they were satisfied with the information there in congress, go we're going to get the same information as the public we here in congress, equal branch of the government are going to get a same information that snooky from the jersey shore is going to get and that seems fair that that was where you saw some of the outrage beginning kind of developed from there when when the attorney general didn't necessarily answer the question, if the president of the White House it had access to the unredacted report that got angry when he was asked whether or not he had. Issued a request jetty buddy. In releasing information of grand jury testimony. He said, no that's not his intention to do that. He wasn't thinking about his job was to redact the information and protect the information inside the Muller report. He wasn't looking to get that information released and that if indeed somebody like Jerry, Nadler, the judiciary committee chair from the house wanted to do exactly that that he absolutely could come talk to the attorney general first and then go make a request himself. But it wasn't bars place to feel like that was something that he had to do. And that also did not sit well with Democrats in the in the hearing yesterday because they felt like this was another sign that bar on some level was picking and choosing and hiding and protecting President Trump with the information. He was releasing bars. Go before congress again today down you expect that the lawmakers will go after them and try to get some more information on the special special counsel's report. I don't think they're going to say that. Although it could go the other direction they came out him pretty hard yesterday. And I think today's going to be more of a clarification, it will be the questions they didn't get a chance to have answered or sort of having him clarify some of the questions that they felt were murky in their answer. But this is also going to be in the Senate. So it's going to be Republican led hearing today, and I think they're going to take it a little I guess the Democrats will be fired up but not as fired up as they were yesterday. That's put it that way. So I think it'll be a little bit easier for him. But I think he's going into a safer situation for him that he did yesterday. Well, it just seems to be no end to this thing. Again. This all goes back to the Muller investigation. He came out with a report that basically exonerated the president. But that's not enough. They've got a dig and dig and dig and dig into lake and find something and again this all relates to Russia again when the faithful really related to Russia was the Clintons. In so many ways. But that's being totally ignored. That they are actually he's actually got a group together. Now, he's assembled a team to review the controversial counterintelligence decisions made by the Justice department and FBI. So if there is truth to that rumor, he's going to be investigating what happened with the Trump campaign in the summer of twenty sixteen how these investigations started up came about in regards to Russia, and whether or not any of it was tainted at the start by anti-trump bias in the FBI in Justice department. So he's independent of the investigation that's going on. And he says he's got his own independent investigation happening. Well, Michael you're joining us on AM Tampa Bay here. Michael Bauer our NBC News Radio reporter at the Bauer show on Twitter. And we'll talk to you later. You betcha. By the way, we got the latest from Alexandria Cossio Cortes. She never fails to let us down her latest is she says on Twitter, the far right loves to drum up fear and resistance to immigrants, but have you ever noticed? They never talk about what's causing people to flee their homes in the first place is inventors Waylon and all those places around the world perhaps sets because they be forced to confront one major factor. Fuelling global migration it's climate change. That's incredible. Even her own constituents are not happy with the right now after the failed Amazon deal. It's her fault that Amazon with home. They bailed out with millions of dollars. Billions that's twenty five thousand twenty thousand jobs that would have been implemented in that area. And now gone because of her all those people are leaving Venezuelan the Middle East and everything for global warming. I guess she doesn't think America's part of the globe. So doesn't matter.

"Antonio. I news correspondent Michael Bauer. Coming up at seven forty what do you expect to hear from the president? I expect him to make the case on on the border. I don't expect that we're going to get a declaration of an national emergency. Because I think he's going to ultimately say look, you got till the fifteenth, and then we'll drive up that bridge when we come to it. But I'm also not worried about a state of emergency national emergency thing. Kaz charlie. We're under thirty one national emergency declarations from the past thirty nine years, and they haven't been rescinded, and we're still working, you know, the government still going on. So in that case why why is the government closed them? The previous thirty one. We're not closing. No. But they have to do with specific situations and everybody who says once you abused this power. Then everyone's going to do it. Well, we we have a an emergency declaration from Jimmy Carter. We have several from Bill Clinton from Barack Obama from George W Bush there there many of them. So I I wish everybody would just stop trying to make something so dramatic, and let's talk about real solutions. And I think that's where we're going. The president. Yeah. Yeah. I wish he would just say, here's here's where we are. Let's stop with the enhanced rhetoric, and let's actually talk about real answers instead of dividing. You know, it goes back to the I can't remember his name. Now. The patriot player who told TMZ that he wasn't going to the White House, but he would go visit Barack Obama that's not helping we we need to start doing things that help us have unity instead of talking about unity. Where do you think the Virginia governor northbound story's going? I think he's gone. I think he he's just trying to figure out how to exit without being called a racist. And it's going to be pretty hard harder to wash this off him, then that shoe polish he talked about, and it really does look alike that his camp kind of pushed that fourteen year old story on the Lieutenant governor. And the weird part, Charlie. Neither one of these guys can be taken out of office for something. They did before they were in office. That's the way the impeachment rules are in Virginia. So neither one of them can be thrown out by their by their state legislature. They have to leave themselves. Big game ratings not so super. Well, I guess that depends on how you want to look at it. Once again, the media mishandling ever. Well, they're not mishandling. It's true that the game Sunday night was the lowest since Super Bowl forty three. But by Wapping five percentage points. Yeah. But five percentage points might be the difference between the paying the high price on the advertising or not getting a bonus whatever still ninety eight million people. Tune in to watch one show. Exactly. That's the lowest since Super Bowl forty-three, which by the way was between the Steelers and the cardinals on the other side of the coin. The highest rated Super Bowl ever was just forty nine point seven percent. The one Sunday was forty four point nine three. Percentage points. Not. And if you would maybe factored in on the new the New Orleans Saints fans who boycotted them watching. No, I think the city of New Orleans they measured had less than twenty six percent tuned in. So that was a little bit of an out to those numbers and my favorite story today. Courtesy of the uphill Capac. Cast house leader Nancy Pelosi still quoting your favorite bible verse. I can't find it anywhere. Yeah. When you're quoting a bible verse. And you keep saying, well, I can't find it in the bible. But I caught it all the time. Maybe you should stop. This cap like knows he has holes in his bible education. But I know go round pointing out that my favorite, quote is my favorite quote. But it's just not in there. It just really silly. And don't you generally when you quoted at least I do when I quote a bible verse. I let people know words from John three sixteen John three fourteen Isaiah twelve twenty two psalms thirty. You know what I mean? Yeah. But she's just said trust me. It's in there. I'm sorry. Trust in that woman on anything certainly when it comes to that..

And then you got Richard gates who is sentencing has been put off until March. So I don't think this is wrapping up anytime soon, certainly not by the end of the month. And and the books that have come out in the past twenty four hours have got the president very upset that seems to be a way that has gotten him distracted now because one of the people writing hit Chris Christie putting his book out yesterday as well as you had a a former White House worker in cliffs SIMS put his book out yesterday. It's called up a team of vipers my five hundred extraordinary days and the Trump White House where he talks about the first two years being marked by infighting and the calls Kellyanne Conway, not just a cartoon villain brought to life, but somebody who was leaking information out of the White House and would tell Trump and FOX borders one thing while then going to the mainstream media on the back end and telling them something completely different and trashing them. He Simms called the Trump administration in unmitigated disaster. That part of the transition there and President Trump. Yes. Yesterday, while Simms was being interviewed on CNN tweeted at SAM's, basically saying that he was someone pretending to be an insider when he was in fact, nothing more than a gopher and reminding him he signed a nondisclosure agreement which the president later threatened a lawsuit with. That will be interesting to see if he if that has any teeth, and if he pursues it will because if he didn't and one of the things since pointed out at the end of that interview is it's very possible that he signed one of those nondisclosure agreements. He wasn't sure they were going to have to see how this goes. I would think that's something you want to have clarified before you ever get your book to print. I would imagine you want to have that clarified, or at least know that. Okay. What is covered and not covered under that nondisclosure. I've say saying I've signed those before too. And sometimes there's a statute on them where you know, up to thirty days ninety days after you're dismissed or whatever everything is fine.

"Thousand the government shutdown continues Michael Bowers joining us now from twenty four seven news. Our news division in Washington DC. So Michael, I understand the FCC has shut down. And as far as I'm concerned, they can stay shut down. You can move ahead. A little further away from that dump button. Yeah. Plus to that that plus the fact that the IRS isn't really have the manpower right now to send out all the information for taxes do here. Maybe maybe we're doing okay on the shutdown front on those things, but two sides meeting yesterday in the White House situation room, and at the end of that meeting apparently both sides decided that since we've all had so much fun with this political game of chicken over the past twelve plus days, why stop the party? Now, let's keep that party going. So here on the thirteenth day of the partial government shutdown. We know the the new democrat led US house of representatives is expected to approve a couple of bills and partial government shutdown that will never see the light of day on the Senate floor. Mitch McConnell has made that clear he will not bring any measure to a vote if there's no money for President Trump's border wall. Even though one of those bills was unanimously voted on by the Senate of just about thirteen days ago, right before the government shutdown happened and the president says, well, he's going to keep the shutdown going along as it takes to get that border wall funding. So yes that meeting yesterday between. The two sides. Nobody came any closer to agreeing on a resolution, and they're planning to try or I guess depending on how you look at it continuing to not try with another meeting scheduled for tomorrow. Now, the they never had any intention of making it any goes with this meeting. Did they because the way I understand it went down. Michael Bauer is they all sat down and right as the president was about or a right is the administration was about to speak. They just shut it down. Right. Quick. I mean, this was a this was retaliation for the other day in front of the cameras. I think there was a certain element of that. Yeah. That was kind of the concern. Democrats had that concern as well that this was going to be seen as sort of a a photo op moment a PR moment, if you will less of negotiation element to it. And and it's possible that there were some openings that got terminology that may be indicative of a negotiation. Like, there was DACA had been thrown out at some point during the meeting yesterday. And that might be something that would cause the Democrats to pause think twice and. Possibly even open the purse strings a little bit more in order to include that in the negotiation process when it comes to funding the the president's border wall. So maybe that's a possibility. We'd also seen in the matter of discussions yesterday that supposedly vice President Mike Pence came to the Democrats with somewhere between two point one and two point six billion dollar offer counteroffer right over the holidays, and that that was turned down by Democrats. And then President Trump indicating that that's not anything he would have accepted anyway. Which kind of makes me think didn't the president vice president talk about this before vice president Pence went there, or is he just going fishing and trying to see if he can get an amount from the Democrats on some level. So there are some questions because of the president wasn't willing to take two point six billion. And he's only shooting for the five point six billion. Is there any room to negotiate? So a lot of questions there for everybody to answer. But this really did seem like a live action version of Twitter that you had people making statements. Nobody listening paying attention elsewhere. And then walking away as if they were the champion of the world. That's what I got. Got out of it. But Michael Bauer is there anything the president can do or will do. In the meantime, while all this is going on to get his wall Bill. Shy of at least at this point shy of finding privatized funding on some level or or getting Mexico to actually cut a check for this thing to get this put together, I think at this point anything else is going to consider is going to be needed to have congressional approval on this on your certainly not going to get that over in the house of representatives right now. So I think at this point you're at a stalemate, you're at the stalemate. And that's why we are where we are. Right now, if there was even even getting consideration of talking about the wall later, like there's one Bill that the Democrats are thinking about putting through here that would fund the department of homeland security through February eight, and then what that does is it kind of bridges the gap. It gives both sides the ability to talk about where the money for the border wall becoming from how much we're talking about. And that would be that's the planet. Democrats are throwing out there. We'd talk about that part later. President doesn't want to have that done. It's got to be five billion dollars for the wall. Democrats are still tight on the one point three billion dollar offer. So I think the fact that the president. It doesn't have any other way to go shy of getting privatized. Wall funding, it would seem as though it would have to be approval of the congress, and he'd have to come together on some sort of an understanding and agreement as to what he would be willing to bend on right now. They don't even have a window. And there is no at this point announcement from the Republicans for any kind of counteroffers they seem to be backing out of this entirely and just pointing the Democrats and the president well Michael Bauer. Thanks for the update on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay..

"To go in depth now with NBC News Radio is Michael Bauer. Michael the the totality of damage that we're seeing now with hurricane Michael, particularly in the panhandle. But not limited to just the panhandle is breathtaking in its scope. It is breathtaking. It's devastating. It's it's sad to watch. And there's a certain element of this crazy calmness. When you're looking at the footage of Mexico beach, and the devastation therein in and just slab were a home used to be another slab where a home used to be. And then you're seeing off to the side. Just the remnants of those homes pushed up against condo buildings or apartment buildings boats in the middle of road, just the emptiness. And then there's. This blue sky in the waves coming up in a beautiful fashion that that dichotomy is just it's shaking to a lot of people overseeing here, we also know that it's a very limited scope of people who can get into those areas, and that's just one portion of it. We're looking at Mexico beached. It's kind of. Apocalyptic destruction right now, I hap- expecting Rick Grimes and Mishaan from the Walking Dead to come out and start fighting zombies. It look that devastated. And that's just a portion of neighborhoods that people are trying to get through and clean up. At this point. Joe we're still looking at neighborhoods that first responders and emergency crews haven't been able to get to yet. And that's the big story here. There's a huge cleanup. That's underway. That's going to take a long time to get there. And governor Rick Scott, telling everybody, listen right now, no reason for you to try to hurry back to your homes to see how everything is let us get things cleaned up before anybody starts making their way out of any shelter. Honestly, why go back? There's nothing to go back to this point them. Get the bulldozers out there to bulldoze everything guys start with a fresh canvas. And if you're gonna rebuild let's bulldoze everything I and get the canvas ready for something like that. Because it is just an utter mess.

"Thinks crime is up at if you ask people a lot of people think the crime is the worst it's ever band. But the statistics don't bear that out as a matter of fact, some good news from the FBI in the San Antonio police department all crimes are down seventeen percent in the city. That's despite a significant increase in population over the last year and the crimes that most people worry about those are things like birthday burglary, larceny theft, motor vehicle. Theft. Those are down eighteen percent. Now, there's a lot of things you can credit for this. Obviously, you could credit efforts being made by the San Antonio police department does that up the violent crime task force, which for example, has increased the number of arrests that they have made in a fiscal year up eighty seven percent seventy three hundred ninety seven arrests for violent crimes, violent criminals in San Antonio in the last fiscal year, the number of felony warrants the number of illegal gun seized also up significantly, but there's a couple of other things you can credit as well crime and crime trends are largely driven by demography. The number of crimes are committed by people between the ages of fifteen and thirty. So would you have more people in that age group, you're going to have more crime? If you take a look at the crime wave of the seventies, the violent streets that we remember from the nineteen seventies. That's when the baby boomers were that age once again, we had the gang wars. Of the nineteen eighties gen Xers between fifteen and thirty. And in the last several years millennials have passed through that age cohort. And now they're aging out of the demographics where people are more likely to commit crimes and second of all technology has made a real dent in crime.

The sheriff talked at length about how drones and robots helped the bear caddy sheriff navigate that situation and bring it to it and without any further injuries. Of course, obviously two people were shot at the beginning. But technology at a number of ways low Jack is credited for significantly cutting the number of motor vehicle tests. Remember twenty thirty years ago. San Antonio was the motor vehicle theft capital of the country, not so much anymore because technology has allowed police to move in and stop that particular crime. So it looks like we're on the.

Three mass shootings in twenty four hours the latest yesterday in Baltimore, Michael. What's the latest on this story? According to the ordinance still too soon to have a motive for the shooting that began outside this Rite Aid distribution center yesterday in Maryland. And then ended inside of the distribution center with four dead. So the motive still unknown in. This comes a day after shootings in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania workers at the facility saying that it was like crazy gunfire people screaming and running in all sorts of directions after enduring the shooting. The suspect has been identified as twenty six year old sonata Mosley a temporary employee at the Rite Aid distribution center. Who according to reports began her day as usual around nine AM began shooting striking victims both inside and outside of the business. She had a nine millimeter handgun fully loaded, and according to investigators, multiple loaded magazines now one other indication at least at this point was that she took her own life that that she shot herself in the head once and that didn't work. So it took a second shot for her to take her own life. And then Mosley had killed three people there. So that's your four dead three wounded victims. At this point in time. Tony all Saul expected to survive. That's the only good news. You can get out of this story. But it's still they still have to work through their injuries and live their life with this terrible tragedy. So what do we know about Mosley or mostly depending on who you're listening to here? Do we know if she has any kind of mental illness or do we know if there's suspected the terrorism situation here, according to the report that didn't seem at least at this point. It didn't doesn't seem that there's any terrorism links again, you never know in in the police are investigating that portion of things, but we're hearing from some of her friends who had posted on Facebook that knew her on Facebook that have been friends with her for a period of time not indicating that there was any sort of history of violence on any level. In fact, the only kind of legal history he may have had it been parking tickets or perhaps suspended license plates on some level. That said there were reports that she may have begun hormone therapy recently in describing herself as sort of a transgender individual Facebook that was. That was something that a couple of friends it indicated was sort of a big turn in her life. And that supposedly we're hearing today. No indication on how this ties into the shooting at all that one of her favorite sayings was an eye for an eye. Again. I don't know how that translates into the events that occurred yesterday, and the police are still trying to tie that in on some level.

When it comes to this hurricane Michael will, Mike you're looking at a hurricane watch. Which was just issued from the northern part of South Carolina all the way up to the top of North Carolina right now as it stands it looks as though this hurricane which you mentioned a category for could still develop into a category. Five scientists are concerned about in regards to the warm weather that it's hitting as it's targeting its way right at this point looks like it may be targeting a Wilmington up to Cape Hatteras that part of North Carolina that watch means the conditions are possible for the hurricane. But yesterday we saw this hurricane developed from a category two and then double in size into the category. Four currently and it's continuing to strengthen from there north Carolinians yesterday. State officials in meetings fear that this may be the strongest storm to ever hit the state, and there's even one. I'm meteorologist earlier today predicting that this may be the worst natural disaster ever in North Carolina WTVN Michael Bauer joining us. And there's one of the worries is that once it does make landfall after that. Initial storm surge that has kind of just sit there and dump water and their food the flooding and the rain is going to be a massive issue. Much like hurricane Harvey in Houston. Exactly, exactly. What you remember from hurricane Harvey in Houston, the days upon days of just torrential downpours and the flooding that came from that. I remember seeing you know highways where sort of the offramp dipped down, and it was just completely flooded over cars floating in that portion of things and using they're expecting something very similar to be happening here when it is in North Carolina could go up as far as Virginia. And even people in Maryland are concerned at this point of it. Yes, you're looking at exactly that it will sit there onshore, and we'll just poured down rain for days and days local flooding any sort of escape routes for people who are gonna try to ride this thing out. And there are people who still continue to do that the people who are going to try to ride this thing out. Of course. State officials don't think they will be able to help very much, but more importantly, there's not going to be a quick hit. And in the hurricane moves off. And you're able to get out.

Right. So they're giving that opportunity to do that. You are seeing that happen, and you are seeing throughout South Carolina, the entire coastal South Carolina had to evacuate yesterday. A good majority of North Carolina did the same thing coastal and mandatory evacuation now that starting to hit the northern part. So you're starting to see the Outer Banks northern Outer Banks get their official mandatory evacuation than anything a little bit further inland is up to the individuals who lived there that could.

"michael bauer" Discussed on Newsradio 970 WFLA
"On this Monday morning, and we're joined by Michael Bauer. Our NBC News Radio reporter, and we were talking Earlier Michael about the NFL and taking a knee on the national anthem and President Trump has weighed in on it again saying that the ratings are down because of the protests, and where do you think it goes from here? Well, it's interesting. That's a that's a great question. And I think we've yet to see you're right. The president did tweet about it. One of the interesting things when he tweeted yesterday that the ratings were down you were ship declined thirteen percent over the lowest over a decade. And instead of the players should stand proudly for the flag and anthem and show that on the broadcast one of the interesting things that was brought up by television insiders was well on the Thursday night games. They did show the national anthem, and they did show no players kneeling in protests. So if the numbers are down even after that, it's not necessarily clear that that would be changing any kind of ratings going forward. They also highlighted that. This is an issue that is more about television than it is about the NFL. They're saying, yes. Overall numbers for the NFL down, but ratings for television are down in the NFL's ratings have fallen substantially less than TV as a whole pointing to NASCAR saying the NASCAR scene in nineteen percent. Drop in viewership since twenty seventeen twenty nine percent dip since twenty sixteen into the best of their knowledge. No NASCAR drivers ever. Protested the anthem other saying this is more about people cutting the cord fewer cable subscriptions, lower viewership numbers for everything. Yeah. I think it's ultimately going to hurt him because the NFL isn't doing anything about it. I personally know so many people who were NFL fans that have cut the cord, and they said forget about it. They're taking a knee on the NFL. And so I think ultimately it's going to hurt him. And I think it's gonna hurt Nike in the long run as well. There's right at this point their stocks are up for Nike, which is kind of what their counter is Kenny stills Alba Wilson where the first two players in two thousand eighteen to take Neil yesterday in protest. He had a bunch of other players who either stayed in the locker room or had a fist rising up in the air as their sign of unity. So the protests level wasn't nearly to what we had seen last year certainly at the end of last year, and I know no recognition at this point as to whether or not Trump's tweet had anything to do with that. But it does seem as listen the one thing that we saw clear yesterday and we saw even going into last night's game. We'll see probably again in tonight's games. Both Monday night football games is that the advertisers. Are there full-throttle they know that based upon the top fifty most watched shows in two thousand seventeen thirty of thirty seven of them were NFL games. So they're still walking to the table. They still want a part of that. Because they know that that's where viewership goes, even if it looks as though the numbers have dropped off. They are still looking at overall the whole a lot of eyeballs being put on football. And of course, the NFL. Doing nothing about it. They initiated or said they run initiate a policy over the past year before the season started saying we're going to keep all the players who want to kneel inside and the others outside. And they said, well, we're not going to do that. Until next year. I'm thinking. Grievance. The players union filed a grievance which then sent the league to the negotiating table with the union. And that's kind of where they're out of these points at talks are still ongoing. And and they haven't heard any word from the union dissuading player protests for the anthem. So they're having these discussions with their players in order to avoid any further controversy, and they're saying the NFL the union both saying that the one person who's bringing this to the table and the attention more than anybody else is President Trump, which is like I said, and you mentioned earlier on the heels of Colin Kaepernick and the Nike ads which were running all day yesterday as well. Michael, do you know, if the cost of ads would be more at the beginning of the game right now, maybe the NFL is trying to capitalize because more is probably trying to see will people take in the for the national anthem. I would assume investors would want their ad- advertisements early on in the game. Rather than later. It would sound like you're probably pretty that. Makes that makes it a very justifiable point. I don't know that the NFL feels that there's any weakness in their product right now going through the entire season. Again, if you. Look at the top fifty shows last year thirty seven of them were NFL game. So I think they feel pretty strong in the product. I think they feel that when they take a look at these numbers is a decline in television viewership that they're looking at that they're going undergoing what's going all the way across the board. You've got NBC shows down nineteen percent CBS nineteen percent ABC fifteen percent. This isn't an NFL thing in their minds. I this is a cutting the cord thing and they're still having a hard time. Kind of watching what the NFL has done by putting games on Twitter or putting games on Yahoo and trying to figure out how to monitor that and get eyeballs on that. So that they can get advertising going, but all the sitcoms. It's all fake news. So nobody should be watching those anyway. That's right. It's all fake news. Not away way. One other quick thing. I guess the cavenaugh confirmation hearings are all over now. And I guess we're about to have a vote in congress in the Senate, right? Yeah. I I don't think there'd be any surprise to you at all Jack. But it looks like there could be a delay put in by the Democrats on this. We're initially hearing that there was going to be a committee that Chuck Grassley was putting together for this Thursday September thirteenth that was the plan for the vote. Democrats can delay a panel vote on Kavanagh's nomination for one week. They only get one week worth of a delay which puts us closer to September. Twentieth. Vote that this may be happening on and it looks like by all indications. They are going to do everything they can delay this. So I think we're probably looking at a September. Twentieth. Overall. I think we're also looking at a situation where nothing's really changed here at this point. It's almost certain that none of the drama change anybody's mind and the cavenaugh at this point avoided any missteps that could've put his confirmation in jeopardy. So despite the fact that somebody has sent or I guess. Wpro bunch of pro-choice supporters sent three thousand coat hangers to Susan Collins, highlighting that have cavenaugh gets in. There would be the return of back alley abortions. I don't think that anybody's vote has shifted at any point. No, he's shoo-in because and of course, they'd like to delay until after the election take control of the Senate, then he wouldn't get in there. But I think he's a shoo-in. So anyway, Michael Bauer thanks for joining us on AM Tampa Bay's morning, you guys have a great rest of your morning. What a waste hangers NBC News Radio reporter eight. That's the truth is in like Flynn as they should not Vaa, by the way. Happy Rocha Shawna Rochas Shawna. That's right sundown last night for sure it's the Jewish new year. It's six twenty nine on AM Tampa Bay. AM? Tampa Bay is streaming on your Amazon echo to say Alexa, wake me up to nine. Seventy WFL a every day at six AM. If you have problems with your hearing, no matter, how old you are you need to do what so many folks have done, and that's turned to audible, I mean with audible, you can get your hearing check find out if your sense of hearing is deteriorated, and if so how much and if you need hearing aids, that's the place to be the technology is amazing. These are nothing like the old fashioned hearing aids that just make everything louder. First of all, they're not intrusive. You can't even tell their in your ear. And Secondly, they use high tech to allow you to hear only certain sounds or to not specific sounds.

"That had this to say about the bench and his use of the high court the justices on the supreme court do not sit on opposite sides of an aisle. They do not caucus in separate rooms. That was kind of swampy yesterday. We're joined by Michael Bauer joining us from NBC News Radio. I mean, the whole thing just beginning of it. Have you ever seen anything a confirmation hearing like that Michael no to me that made for the worst reality television? I've ever seen in my life and from the very get go. You know, it was like, interrupting the cheers. Welcome everybody for a second. Take a second to understand who's there. And as Chuck Grassley trying to do that the chairman yet Kamala Harrison mmediately interrupting and then that went on for like ninety minutes. And then there were interruptions of interruptions, and then Tony when you had people getting kicked out by the bouncers, which I didn't even realize they had because they were standing up and then at one point the picture about three rows of empty seats about halfway through this thing for him at all been kicked out of that. I wanted to Toby Keith song to come on. I love this bar. We're laughing. But it it's just it's really sad. Because this is where America gets to hear the dude that's up for the job right in America has to everybody asks me questions. Should we let this happen? I mean, this is the point this. This was this is set up for the sole purpose of Americans getting to know this guy. And now you question whether or not that should be happening. When you've got all these people that have been kicked out when you've got the circus drama, by the interruptions, upon interruptions, upon interruptions, not getting to the point. I mean, I can't even it took before we even heard from cavenaugh himself and above and beyond that what was with the father from parkland, Florida who is there to shake Kavanagh's hand that seemed like a safety issue. Like, how do you get somebody who just stands up at a break in the middle of this hearing, then goes to shake the judges hand where we saw, you know, whether or not he turned away or security got involved that doesn't matter. The fact that he was there and did that was kind of a safety concern. I think and above and beyond that he was brought in there because the back. Diane Feinstein wants to talk about guns later on down the road. And this was kind of her moment to have this drama entering here. So day to starts today. I think the drama could only get a little bit more intensive he's about ready to get raked over the coals from Democrats on all of this. You know, it was politics at its worst. Is this somewhat payback when Mitch McConnell would not allow the supreme court? Decision earlier under president President Obama's is this the Democrats way of filibustering this thing. Yeah. There's as best. They can. I mean, listen, they've got no say in this whatsoever. As far as the votes, go. Right. So this is kind of what they have to do this element of filibuster taking ninety minutes on whether or not there should be a vote on whether or not they should be getting the remaining pages involved in this. And even that putting pressure on cavenaugh individually looking at the point trying to get Cavanaugh going. Hey, listen, you know, as a judge I need to make the decision that if somebody came to me with forty two thousand pages worth of information a couple of hours before trial was supposed to start I want everybody to be able to go over that with enough time putting that pressure on him on that level as well. And none of that actually sitting Weller or playing well for the most part, I think this is exactly what you're saying. This is that sort of payback element here. Now that said I do think to make if everybody should have every bit of the same amount of paperwork in order to make these decisions in the ask questions, but from here, I don't think it makes any any different. I think you're going to see the possibility of more Democrats jumping ship over to the Republican side there in red states than anybody changing their mind anyplace else, and I think having. In August to put their no matter what. Michael appreciate your time. You got a lot more to cover have fun watching that. Let's get out of here. We go. Got Mike is going to watch it and interpreted for you tomorrow here. Kentuckian has morning news. It's six twenty one..
