"Not no? That's a good question honestly I. I don't think Michael's who got bigger. I mean there are some moments where he's jokes are also so there's moment for Michael it'll sound like he is but he's really not I mean all honestly say I think he's been pretty level Throughout this time but I also think naturally that you're just more like a humble person. He's not like he'll boasts. But it's like sometimes in a joking way. And so I think like sometimes people misconstrued that it'd be like Oh my God but he like. He's that person the way jokes that you'll be thinking it but then he'll say it out loud you know so you're like Oh my God. He completely said that. But it's true and it's funny so I don't know I think that I think you've been well-balanced to stay humble plus I'm right thereby him so mom pop. Those is that ever happened to my husband. Cape reminding and I'm not saying this now because you know he's a bitter at the moment but that would that really is true though. No she don't want any she the first wife I've ever heard the any tramps talking to my husband. Like I get that though I get it like if my boyfriend said he slept with a bunch of girls or whatever. I'm like that's good. That means that he was desirable for certain amount of girls. Someone someone wanted to fucking me now. You WanNa make sure that your person is desirable. Never had slept with anybody and that means anybody WANNA sleep with you. Come on I want you guys for coming onto you guys busy and it was a great conversation race we had. This was sell fine definitely busy. I love having those conversations have humor. Do we have like real talk? And I think you guys are very open and I think we all like is as we go through this current vars and we go to these times appearance where we trapped in our home. And everybody's going crazy what it just like. I'm really about to step out the window because I'm just tired of my people are feeling it but as we need to have that conversation. Why do you want to step out the window? What are you not saying? What is making you feel? That was that tear reflecting. So thank you guys for allowing our listeners to push themselves totally this has been S. You so much for having us I everybody is that Tom of the week or you. Kinda you know. Have our little pro tip in. La Does things we respectfully disagree on certain things but the same time we still love each other so today's prototypical today is how to communicate with your children about personal issues and topics that they're dealing with but doing it in a safe comfortable environment speaking to your children and making them feel comfortable to come to you to talk about sex. Talk about shaving. Certain areas. Talk about them wanting to be intimate or having these feelings. I think obviously a lot of people are like. Oh do not talk about that to your parents. I did not grow up in a household where that was safe to talk to my parents about. That just wasn't comfortable. And plus I grew up with so many siblings had three older sisters so I would go to them for certain things and talk to them or you know usually go to a friend so I know definitely for me with our three girls. I WANNA Mak- safe place where they can come to me but also sometimes I feel like you have to kind of nudge it. Because sometimes they don't want to talk to you about it. So you kind of have to nudge it to them and kind of start bringing it up and starting that conversation so they will want to talk about it. To agree aren't the communication is very important. When you have kids posit the is it possible to over communicate but at the same time Cuna Keisha I think is important where kids because you don't want your kids to be in a place where they can't talk to you when they come in. A problem appears and so many people that have taken advantage of because it don't of anybody to communicate where be able to share their true feelings without being judged I think sometimes as a parent is hard not to judge so I think not judging and communicate is very important for your kids to be able to have those hard conversations because as soon as you say something that you don't agree with and you feel that is negative and if soon as you turn it to the parent you turn into the dictator and you're not You know the Buddhist Mark. Who's there to listen and help them choose the inner light in help them choose the right path so deterrence to the judge is just harder for them to really trashy because they know that there's a verdict coming after that so to be able to really have the inner peace and have the conversation with your kids that allows them to trust you on the decisions that they look into make. I think it will make you a connection with them last longer than just their childhood. Because a Lotta times when kids are younger have no choice but to be connected to the parents. But when they're older they choose if they want to be connected parents and if you have open line of communication in the future kids would choose to. WanNa be around you so communicate and that's what I think. Would you think sugar hear people disagreeing what I say to them not disagreeing? I'm just thinking of like reflecting on my own. You know past experience how I might not have felt safe but also thinking forward now to being apparent on sometimes the girls are going through something. Payton's teenager and sometimes she'll say something in off the top in my head before I even speak. I'm like what the hell but then I like trying to compose myself and instead of attacking her feelings or you know sensitivities. I tried I dismore. Ask a why you know. Why are you feeling this way you know? Why do you think this is happening in kind of track? It she get to the root instead of just attacking the end result communicate and be a great listener. The project really is just clear communication through love though. Thank you. That's it that's it that's the end.

Sex Talk we my mom like having sex talk with your parents is always hard but they have a podcast and they talk about it quite open our podcast sex with my mom. It's still extremely awkward. Even five years after doing this I was wondering that I had told Michael Up. Because we've been together so long. Both of us know each other's parents really well and I said Hey who. What would be more awkward? You're me talking to our moms about sex and definitely was both of ours would be awkward but then it kind of makes me think that I'm like way.

Federal judge rules New York must hold June primary canceled over coronavirus risks
"Race Andrew Yang strikes again well there's an old timey name you haven't heard the inter Yang yeah no Yang is a disruptive force in the Democratic Party at least this week he is because remember New York state and its board of elections had canceled their democratic primary for June twenty third and said not we're not gonna have it anymore we've got Joe Biden don't worry about it and for the health and safety of our people are not gonna have this and that was widely seen as something of a coup attempt because Bernie Sanders made it really clear when he quote endorsed Joe Biden but he still wants his own voters to vote for him even though he's out of the race another reason for that is because he wants to crude delegate delegate strength by the time he shows up at the convention whatever form that takes but the democratic convention if he's gotten a lot of delegates behind him he can use that to advance the more socialist elements of the democratic platform that he's interested in seeing and then that's why Bernie was doing that so in New York it was believed that this was an effort to basically say never out we're not going to participate in this game we're just gonna try to get as many delegates as we can over to Joe Biden and Bernie you can go home but what ended up happening yesterday thank Dan thanks Dan regarding a lawsuit he filed he's a federal judge ruled that New York must go forward with its presidential primary the judge U. S. district judge Anil Lisa Torah's of Manhattan made the ruling yesterday evening that they will hold the primary in June and that tore as ruled in favor of Yang and the lawsuit as it was filed by young's office and the young lawyers said this quote this unprecedented and unwarranted move infringes the rights of plaintiffs and all New York state Democratic Party voters of which are estimated to be more than six million as it is fundamentally denies them the right to choose our next candidate for the office of president of the United States the court agreeing there and saying that this that the removing that Alexion merry was unconstitutional interesting that inter Yang we get involved in this the old Yang gang has not broken up they got the gang back together looks like that's right interesting I guess he's a he's a Bernie bro now I guess he's making it known that he is part of the resistance within the Democratic Party with this little move either that or he just likes getting votes you know he's like he still has his name on the ballot again alongside a bunch of other people you realize this you about this June twenty third ballot will include Yang Sanders Warren and Michael Bennett Amy Klobuchar Tulsi Gabbard Michael Bloomberg digest of all Patrick Tom's tire all their names are gonna show up on that ballot in New York in June and that every I released a statement yesterday said quote I'm glad that a federal judge agreed that depriving millions of new Yorkers of the right to vote was wrong I hope the New York board of elections takes from this ruling a new found appreciation of their role in safeguarding our
The state of the Democratic primary race
"With the New Hampshire primary in the rear view mirror the democratic contest for the presidential nomination shifts west and south with Nevada being the next day to vote followed by South Carolina he can be the senior editor for politics and government Scot Shafer is here to talk about the state of the race and California is a role in it hi Scott Hey Nina so New Hampshire often clarifies the front runners but to what extent if that happened last night Bernie Sanders well it did clarify things but not as much as I would say is it does usually so yes Bernie Sanders people to judge clearly the top tier they're now essentially tied coming out of Iowa and New Hampshire in delegates it really put of course former vice president Joe Biden came in fifth he's really on the ropes and was with war and kind of a surprise her neighboring state she's from Massachusetts she came in fourth place behind Amy club which are so her campaign is a little bit on red alert I would save and it it definitely New Hampshire gave a new life to Amy club which are and we did see three candidates drop out and Yang senator Bennett for Michael Bennett from Colorado and of all Patrick the former governor of Massachusetts I'm not sure many people knew that they were even running but they are now out so in that sense it does narrow the field at the criticism of both Iowa and New Hampshire having so much influence in the races that they're overwhelmingly white the next few contests will be in more racially diverse state Scott so what does that mean for the various candidates well it means a lot I mean Bernie Sanders he is you know really the front runner right now he does quite well with Latinos he does reasonably well with African Americans but he's the only one in that top three from last night they can say that both booted judging Amy club which are of really really struggle to get any traction at all with African Americans and Latinos so now moving into these more diverse states they really got their work cut out for them Biden he's been really held up by African American voters but the question now is with you know two very weak for initiatives in the first two contests are they gonna stick with him or they gonna look at other candidates and if so you know who does that benefit Tom Stiers is kind of making a move in South Carolina he's been spending a lot of money there on the air waves and he's doing reasonably well with African Americans and then of course you've got waiting in the wings Mike Bloomberg who is also spending a lot of money not in the first four contests become super Tuesday he's gonna be a big player there as well well what do the results of New Hampshire and Iowa mean for the importance of California's March third primary well California has been like pining for relevance and I think finally this year we're going to have it I mean just to give you some context California has four hundred and ninety four delegates to up for grabs that is compared to New Hampshire which had twenty four to twenty times more delegates just here in California we're part of super Tuesday which includes states like Texas Virginia Colorado and Bernie Sanders is really well positioned here he's got a lot of union support he's got a great field operation he's got a lot of money but you also have Michael Bloomberg really poise for the first time on super Tuesday to make a splash he's spending tons of money on television he's got field offices and not just the usual places like Los Angeles and San Francisco but also stocked in Fresno riverside so he could be a factor as well you know California is now have fifteen million ballots that have been mailed out to them and the question is are they going to mail them in soon or are they going to kind of sit on them and wait and see who's left they don't wanna you know voters never want to vote for somebody who's dropped out of the race so you know they think California's really want to have their voice heard this time

Democratic race starts in earnest with Iowa caucuses
"Let's go to Ohio what since you're just talking about Iowa in Iowa I've never been Iowa yeah I've actually gone to the caucuses I went in twenty sixteen okay how are they fascinating really totally fascinating it's because I ones by and large I was just talking to somebody last night his parents live in Iowa they know everything about politics they said they study they do would really seriously they study all the candidates they they know the intricacies of the policies and the differences between them and the other their consulate kicking the tires I get to meet a lot of the candidates is really fascinating to watch and by the time they make it a caucus night where you have to sit there and you watch like a pep rally essentially we a series of speeches are given by surrogate for the candidates who will give up and give like in a two minute speeches or whatever to try and convince the room to support them and in the democratic caucus what they do by the end of it they just got they'll stand in corners of the room as a mass of people to show you who they support and if you don't reach a fifteen percent threshold tonight you've got to pick another candidate you got to go to can't with more support so if your candidate fails three fifteen percent in that room move your massive people somewhere else one now and how long does this take what is this all start when did when did the games begin eight o'clock tonight and so they that kind of time to go at eight o'clock tonight I get it and then stand there and be involved in this for hours with under the get to bed the ida B. you got to be an adult I don't think I think you can bring your kids if you want but it's eighteen or older have to it you know loading loading age yeah and you go and you just do you pick a candidate it's really it's really neat honestly I it's one of the most fascinating political things I've ever sent all right well we know that Bernie Sanders is leading in Iowa and New Hampshire he has taken the lead in both of those states which is interesting considering that he has been kept in Washington DC with Elizabeth Warren and Amy clover charm Michael Bennett during the impeachment trial her trial where is Joe Biden has been out on the campaign trail and a lot of people have seen I've been saying this all along they're doing this to hose Bernie the reason close he held on to those impeachment articles I firmly believe is because she wanted a hose Bernie she is she did not wish you want to give by now a little bit of a boost a little bit of an edge and we joked about them doing everything by carrying him you know on their shoulders over the line if she's clearly out to get him and she she since she was even saying in a newspaper interview this weekend this out to the South Florida sun Sentinel is that she is very nervous about how progress of these candidates are how left left wing they are even her she said as a San Francisco liberal she says what are you thinking in terms of like government run health care she's like Nancy Pelosi speaking out against government run healthcare woman who was behind obamacare yes the woman who's a probably walked with the with the not valid you know down down the street you know you know she was so proud of you barely had right hold on to it yes to the woman who was behind that the government take over a darker the woman who didn't read the bill zero eight all right so in South Carolina though so Bernie's guy Iowa New Hampshire wrapped up in South Carolina of course Biden leading by thirty one points right no wait yes it's happening in South Carolina what's happening at one point a Biden Joe by misleading as much as thirty one percentage points in South Carolina he now only holds a five point lead over Bernie Sanders this is wild it's crazy that that that's it that is big news it's huge it this is the latest post and career change research poll which is a local South Carolina so it's of no local paper in South Carolina and Biden is at twenty five percent Sanders is at twenty now what's interesting is guess was in third place place there visit Bloomberg no Tom style the other billion Tom Stoddard believe it or not is in third place he has made to South Carolina priority in he's spent a boatload of money in in that state with advertising right and now he is it eighteen percent so he's only two percentage points behind Sanders St amazing it's crazy Elizabeth Warren is a fourth at eleven percent body judges at seven percent I know other Democrat is polling above three percent in South Carolina and ten percent of voters have no no pack ten percent of voters have no pack in South Carolina well I think I mean if your campaign and you're about to roll through Iowa New Hampshire you're looking at the South Carolina numbers and saying ten percent have no choice yet here's my opportunity yep no challenger to buy no has pulled up more than twenty percent you know Bernie Sanders may do that he only has a five point lead over burnt over Bernie Sanders what's happening I I know someone who's big huge very supporter yeah and I go out it will go back and forth it is a very friendly conversation but I have to tell you there and she's just dumb as a rock and I hate to say that but it's true and I have to say like one just so much more to but there's a disconnect in her brain were you can put the facts out there and put links to articles about certain things yes and she just thinks that she's just gonna save more money by the government taking it off sure it's it's a weird the weirdest thing here's a here's my problem with Bernie supporters is that it's the socialism and but the socialism particularly it's a weird thing the critique from the socialists from Bernie Sanders is vis gross concentrations of power lead to corruption what they're going to prison where they could have with the gross concentration of power going to consume into the governor exactly so what they'll do is they'll say they they basically attack gross concentrations of power which lead to corruption and I think that diamond is is right on course concentrations of power do lead to corruption so they're gonna make the government corrupt they're just gonna bring in more money and in the end what is that too it never results in better government it always results in more hands being plunged into that pot and people being explored yeah well she struck the cool a big time so Joe Biden receives thirty percent backing from black South Carolina voters gets his number two in support among African Americans in South Carolina among African American in South Carolina I'm sorry yes wow Tom dire I he has been he has been visiting here is a large black populations hiring blacks staffers he's a twenty four percent of following Joe Biden's thirty percent backing among black voters and then sixteen percent Sanders at sixteen percent and worn a ten percent chance of courses at two percent a boy meanwhile our media doesn't even pay any attention to
Senate defeats motion to call witnesses in Trump impeachment trial
"A fifty one forty nine split. The Senate has blocked emotion to subpoena new witnesses in the impeachment trial. The trial is now in recess. Senator Susan Susan Collins and Mitt Romney were the only Republicans to cross party lines and vote in favor of hearing witnesses. After days of arguments and questions from senators a vote on whether to acquit president trump is still outstanding to discuss where things go from here as Wall Street Journal reporter Natalie Andrews from the capital Natalie. Now that this motion the Senate has failed to pass. What's next Senate leader Mitch? McConnell and Chuck Schumer are working to negotiate some sort of resolution to end and the trial would democrats have power right now. They have leverage to bring in a lot of motions which could result in a late Friday nights and given the partisan nature of the Senate. Most of the motions aren't likely to pass so Mitch. McConnell is trying to negotiate a deal that gives Democrats something they want on timing and also oh results in Democrats yielding. Maybe on the floor control that they that the resolution gives them Hong Timeframe. Are we talking about potentially aides. It's around the Senate and senators themselves seemed to be thinking that the trial will end on Wednesday. The schedule that has kind of been pitched to them would be that Monday in Tuesday could be speeches. The senators could give up about the trial on the floor and then the final vote could be Wednesday but that is not set again. That is why the leaders are shading. Isn't the mood likely to become more partisan than ever. Now that this vote has been taken again. It was very interesting to see the reasoning of that. A lot of senators put out about why they opposed the witnesses. Senators like we. We him Kawasaki. Who is considered an unknown possible? Swing vote. She said that she didn't have confidence. That Congress could give the president of fair trial so she was was voting to end the trial early by not voting to bring in new witnesses and information. She's a member of Congress so for her to acknowledge that Congress can't give the president a fair trial. It's striking Republican. Senators have acknowledged. The president has done some wrong. Doing but say the impeachment will be harmful for the country or that. The offense doesn't rise missile of impeachment. So certainly the reasons that we're seeing on. Why Republicans want to end? This trial are broad and speak to the partisan. Addison divides in the country out of the timing work. And all this there are a lot of things happening over the next week What were the state of the Union speech and campaigning? Having vote on Wednesday means that you could break in Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders Mea Culpa. Michael Bennett all presidential candidates will probably go to Iowa this weekend and campaign. Because they're looking at the Iowa caucuses on Monday and then you would have Donald. Trump's stated union speech each which is scheduled for Tuesday and then acquittal. Vote or vote that will likely end in acquittal of the president on Wednesday so pretty big weaken American politics next week. We're looking at
How will Trump's impeachment affect November elections?
"Even as the Senate impeachment trial is set to get underway president Donald Trump touts his economic success while at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Tuesday he said that the US has regained its edge against other nations in areas like trade job creation and energy when I spoke at this forum two years ago I told you that we had launched the great American come back today I'm proud to declare that the United States is in the midst of an economic boom the likes of which the world has never seen before Rick Davis we were talking earlier about all the other things going on in addition to impeachment the the broad expectation is that president trump will not be convicted he will stay in office finish out his term with all that being said the presidential election coming up what is the game here what are the Democrats to take it from that perspective hoping trying to accomplish here well I do think there's a element of trying to change the narrative trump just had a big success signing a trade deal with China that he said he was gonna bring China to their knees and arguably he can he can declare some success and the ratification even in the midst of all this impeachment of the U. S. M. C. A. the trade deal between Canada and US it's quite a feather in his cap I mean he's gonna have a signing ceremony while impeachment is going on showing the American public that he's out there doing the hard work the presidency in in you load on top of that low unemployment and investment breaks great stock market records and and he's got a story to tell that that doesn't include impeachment so I think the fact that the Democrats have made a huge gambit on saying we want to start this year an election year talking about impeachment means they have confidence that somehow this is gonna nor to their benefit sure they're gonna tell yeah all we're doing this because the right thing to do and the country needs to have written you know this this this catharsis because otherwise gosh this guy will be uncontrolled and the remainder of his presidency but the reality is this is all about elections and there is an election in ten months and regardless of what happens with impeachment there's gonna be an up or down vote on Donald Trump and and Democrats I think believe that somehow this is going to help them I think the jury's out just like it is on impeachment Craig when all this is said and done in a few weeks months whatever it is how would one define success for Democrats here is it winning over a few Republican votes is at getting John Bolton up there and and saying embarrassing things about the president what what how would you define success is they're they're democratic fetching involves trying to get no Republican votes the expectation is that if you were down from twenty sixteen you're still gonna go from a twenty twenty year dug in your ear dug in deep and you're gone you're either going up with the server down with the ship this is all aimed at those moderates in the middle and again as we talk about every cycle rate can talk about it better than I can even but you know there are those I think it's people things maybe ten or fifteen percent people kind of in the middle who are like you know twenty sixteen act much care for Hillary from kinda like the cut of trump's J. about love that guy from the apprentice he seems like a real decisive guy I'm gonna roll the dice and take my chances you know three years and they're like oh my gosh what have I done they don't let you talk to Democrats when they do focus groups people say they talk about the tweets like I don't really like to tweets which is become kind of a substitute for like I really like his style like he's got a real not very nice to people in the in the you know whatever so I think that the I mean it's a kind of I don't want to sound so cynical but a lot of this impeachment is aimed at maybe that ten percent fifteen percent twenty percent of the way outside the Democrats think are persuaded bowl you know former trump voters are people least took a took a walk on the trump side of the street maybe could come over to the Democrats and really want to dirty up trump as best they can you know he was he was shady and that way you don't Ukrainians and etcetera I think it's a huge gamble I think you know again as we just talked about a last second if you are not exactly riveted by the impeachment yet at least so far and I think Democrats put a lot of chips on this particular square it may work it may not but what they have what trump has is always of Rick said great economy two or three good trade deals and and a real you know telling his back yeah I would say just to add to that is that part of the play for the Democrats as defensive right I mean if you blow see the speaker of the house did not want to DO impeachment and it was the left wing of her party that forced her into it I mean she resisted resisted and she finally caved in because the one thing they can't afford is a disenfranchised base right I mean Hillary Clinton lost in states like Wisconsin because she underperformed what Barack Obama got there by eight in this case in two thousand sixteen she got two hundred fifty thousand fewer votes than Barack Obama did Donald Trump got twenty thousand fewer votes than Mitt Romney did but was able to beat Hillary Clinton that state because she didn't turn out base so a lot of the democratic strategy is fire up that base make sure they're happy if they deliver at the scale that they did for a bomb it's very hard to see a scenario where Donald Trump wins Craig this of course is going on right is were approaching the first presidential primary in Iowa it is there an easy way to describe what impact it's going to have on on the primary especially with some of the leading candidates not all of them but some of them here in Washington and sitting quietly in their seats drinking well yeah sort of at the tactical level it's a great day for Joe Biden or people to judge because you're not a member the United States Senate and so you're free to is moved to Iowa for the next two weeks and and set up shop for the senators running obviously Sanders and Warren called which are really Michael Bennett is still running for president someone told me today so I guess for senators you know it's it's actually trick here I do think out of the more on the strategic level though this is kind of baked into the cake for democratic primary voters and I will you don't really here the campus talk that much about it it's kind of understood of your democratic primary voters like accepted that you don't much care for Donald Trump weather's being in Peter not impeach or convicted or acquitted it it's all it's sort of like the backdrop against which the whole campaign is being run so the the rallies I attended when I was in I was people I've talked to it doesn't come up that much but I do think it's on the front of the minds of primary voters in one important way which is we need to find a candidate that can beat Donald Trump that's really good news for Joe Biden let's goodness for some of the others but that is really the the sort of the driving force behind the caucuses in the primaries are to come Rick isn't about thirty seconds if you can we get to November where is impeachment in Ukraine where to those rank on the panoply of of the issues that voters are going to think about when they well I think I'm on a piece of it I mean we blow through issues so quickly nowadays because of the mass media and how quickly we cycled through things that I would be surprised that the trend actually carries much weight November I would say though that that that Ukraine scandal will continue all right even though impeachment will end in a couple of weeks they'll still be reporting about these crazy deals that we're trying to be struck and what was happening so I wouldn't be surprised if Ukraine has a doesn't have that were porting on it doesn't have a bigger impact in the impeachment itself okay my thanks to Rick Davis former John McCain national campaign manager in Bloomberg contributor in Craig Gordan Bloomberg's Washington

"Just final day with us. Come back again. Lasted. She's very pleasant. Yes. A soothing, isn't it? Really? Absolutely. Now, we have Mike tomorrow. Mike, Mike Patrick's, very good. But his voice isn't that soothing? Here before the Mike open. Kelly is she works with when my allergies are bad. And then we have a Mike Patrick and reach shepherd you have like three basically three old dudes who do nothing but Claire they're clear their throats. I'm there now too. No. I didn't even know to sell well feel better. But it's been fun this week. Thank you for having. And I cannot wait to text Joe Gallagher this weekend. To twist your words in say that you were very nervous because I would never worked before an audience before. Just a heads up. That's what he's gonna hear. I'm ready. Although, you know, with Joe I have no credibility anyway. So. All right. Hey, let's start with with Bob Kraft. The owner of the New England Patriots, Florida. Prosecutors are now offering to drop prostitution charges against New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for visiting that massage parlor. But unfortunately, when he got the news craft celebrated by going back to the massage. Thank you. So I don't know. I just saw thing in the post where they say, there's there's no way he's gone. The the deal supposedly is all right. You, you know, as long as you admit in court that you probably would have been convicted. If it went to trial, more good and everything can make everything go away. He's not going to do that. Why not that's ridiculous? Even try to fight it. I mean, come on. Hey, you're fine community service, quote, unquote, and beyond your way move on. I mean, what you're going to push this to try. I think it's just it's ego and embarrassment, and you got a rich guy who can wait them out and spend any amount of money. Yeah. That's it. I do think the longer it goes to the worse. It is for him. Right. He just doesn't want. I don't think he he just doesn't want it on the record that he did such a thing. I think played it away. You do you want a really open this up for further analysis down the road, and it goes to trial. If I were him, I would just want it to just let it just let it die a slow death. Let it fade away. You know, it's one of those in, you know, the drill in in a lot of legal cases. Even if you win you lose by drawing attention to here, it is it wouldn't be on the record in return. The charges will be dropped. Right. So there's nothing on the record. You pay your finding do your community service move on. There's nothing on your record. There's no reason to turn that plea deal down, but says you'd have to admit in court that he would have been convicted, right? No charges, no conviction. No now, nothing his official record per se. But he would have to say that publicly which he's seventy seventy really care about us out on your record. That's right. You're a double secret probation on. You're wearing your eagles had this morning. Now this story with us. It's just a coincidence. No, actually, it's just a funny story. I I time I've worn this particular hat is the throwback logo. It's a black cap with the with the green eagles eighties logo. And it's funny because for my son our older son's birthday. He wanted a Yankees hat and right? So he we we went to the store in cross gates and had the honor to send it down to him. Actually. I think Roger called up and said h asking he said my son. Credit card number. Here's the address chess Senate out and then on his birthday mats. And this is this joke, and we're like the Yankees like it's an eagles. He's getting eagles suffer me had it in the back of his head eagles at not Yankee. So I ended up with an eagles at this. Is that my dad always used to wear? Oh is that right? Yeah. I really liked the logo. It's very cool. It's just a clean. Look. It's cool. So so I just thought it was interesting because we have the patriots have signed a player from the eagles. Yeah. They traded for Michael Bennett who's the defensive linemen. And you know, it's funny. Michael Bennett's brother Marcel actually played a couple of years ago for the patriots as a tight end when they won the Super Bowl, and these two guys are the guys you're very engaging. Very funny. Very smart, very eloquent. But so so the patriots traded for Michael Bennett, and he says he is going to protest the anthem, but he's going to just say in the locker room during the that's the NFL policy is not it's been like that all last season. And even the eagles had a policy where you don't take in the end, the you're more than welcome to take any in the locker room. Don't do it on the field. And so that's. How he and Malcolm Jenkins and a couple other people have been handling that. And so he will continue the same procedure that standard, but you won't see him on the field. So in a weird way is not the best of both worlds of the players get to express themselves sort of and the league's not long, especially because we've mentioned the history of the thing was usually weren't on the field anyway right for the anthem. So I thought it was interesting. It's interesting because people people have this image of the patriots where they're all just robots. You know, nobody talks a lot of that's true. But they also accommodate they make accommodations for talent. He's a talented gyn. So they're not as fascist is. Maybe they they might seem. You know, they've taken up some malcontents over the years. Corey dillon. Mawson and some others. And so anyway interesting though, he's a very intelligent guy. Very interesting guy. We have a tale of two different hiking scenarios. One was really a sad over the weekend. He had a fifty two year old glens falls men died on Sunday he collapsed while climbing mount mount up in Franklin county and couple of days earlier, blueberry hill up in Essex County, another guy Clinton county man died walking up to peak at elizabethtown had a heart attack. So both of them in their early fifties. I don't know that each one story, but you would think they'd probably both thought they were in pretty good shape. It's kind of shocking. Had the weather kind of thought a little bit last week. That was nice and people had it out. And there's a big difference between hiking in the winter hiking in the summer, and you have a little bit of extra challenge an extra challenge with the snow and mud and things like that. So they say there's a little extra exertion involves both men had heart attacks. So yeah, I it can happen. It's almost like he just try this comparison. But like shoveling snow in the winter is a little additional stress on your heart that you might not have, you know. It's a very good analogy. Yeah. So so that was sad. Meantime, we've had and we talked about the popularity of liking the Iran tax and whatnot. But we had another instance where we think a bunch of people decided to hike without being at all prepared for we've. That's the other thing is people go, and they hike on trails that are either beyond their ability or they're not prepared for the conditions or they're not experience hikers. And that's what happened last week when you three guys or three hikers from Clifton park, and they were hiking up in the index Essex County, and they get lost in king. And so it was one of the high peaks, and they are not real experienced hikers, apparently, and they get lost trail. They're wearing sneakers, and they got they they veered off this rail. Is you never do. So they they had people come in and rescue them. And we've talked about this over the last year or so with the increase in popularity of hiking in listening is a great activity. It's fine. You can bring the dogs alive times you bring the kids, but you have to be prepared for the conditions. Don't attempt as a more difficult hike than you think you can handle and just. Just go to twenty one year olds under nineteen year old youthful. Ignorance, and yeah, I would say the first thing is maybe I'm not an experienced hiker. But I'd probably start with not wearing sneakers when you're climbing a high this time of the year. Yeah. Yeah. Sure. Sure. So one of the things the woman who climb the statue of liberty on July fourth she she got a break from judge yet says she might do it again, which I find infuriating. Yeah. Should you should be a little bit more politic and remorseful your behavior? Forty five year old woman was protesting climbed on the statue of liberty. She could have received one and a half years in jail for the antics. Instead, she got five years probation. And then said, basically, would you do drink, and she goes, well, nothing's ruled out she if you remember she scaled the base of the statue last July fourth she was protesting President Trump's immigration policies. Three hour standoff. Emergency responders had to come. They evacuated the tourist attraction on the fourth of July ruined all those people's days. And then the responders had to risk their lives to rescue her. And you know, I actually don't blame her. I blame the judge the judge chided her for wasting first responders time in endangering their lives, and but but still handed out a ridiculously light sentence. Don't get it. John Kelly five.
