Still Buffering: How to Money

"Uh-huh. Hello. And welcome to still buffering a sisters guided teams through the ages. I am Riley Smirl, I'm Sydney macaroni. And I'm Taylor Sma. So sisters the Mueller report. Oh, gosh. Have you read this kit is it possible to it looks like most of it is redacted. I have read. I mean, I've read summaries. I've been I've been largely watching the children's. I haven't been able to like raise it down and read it that was my plan for my entire evening. Read the down and read the redacted. You'll report the forward acted. I saw Dan savage tweet. That was funny. He said is full redacted sort of like the full Monty. The four adapt adapted Miller. I'm sorry Muller report. I always want to learn isn't molar. I think I've people correct me sometime. No, we're talking about you know, what we mean? I don't know. All I know is that I check Twitter at one point and Trump colluded was and like. AG? This lots of this. There's there's a lot of juicy bits in there there is there is the the expertise when he found out that Mueller Muller. Whatever was going to be investigating him. Good. Just what you say when you're innocent. Yeah. I was gonna say my presidency is over because I'm so innocent. I like that. Well, it also be which we all know. It's nothing new, but like Sarah Sanders on record being like. Yeah. That was a lie. Like, those those statements were absolutely unfounded like in the report like we know. But it said, right? Eight in. That's weird. You know, it really I try not to lose hope because even though this has been like a very arduous slow excruciating for most of us process. The same way with Nixon it was like this. We just didn't live through it yet, except it took, you know, a whole term in part of another one too. That one. Well, so then maybe this is faster. If you look at it that way looking at positive way. Now, we're looking at it in a way. Well, just saying it took them a while to take down Nixon too. I don't know the world's about to say it already is spin. They're in saner. Okay. Sure. Listen, we're in for some rough waters, but we've already been in rough waters it live in rough waters now. And here's the great thing. We've learned how to tread those rough waters, we're fine. We're going to keep on treading Sydney's out in the middle of the ocean in her life. Raft is just like slowly deflating in her heads barely above water. And she's just holding two thumbs up legwork great. Everything's fine. I don't know. I feel like maybe the cultural fascination with mermaids right now. We have gotten used to try to water so severely that. Now, we are just beautiful liberal mermaids just fish people. It's either that or it's the yearning to be underwater constantly, you know, I was a mermaid I could just live underwater. And I wouldn't know any of you can't hear anything top when you're underwater. Yeah. Muffled up there all of this would seem like a dream. It's like the adults in peanuts cartoons just won't won't won't want. It's all that's all that is above. A along. Sebastian was right, Darlie downwards wheter. Wetter. Oh, well, hey, can we talk about something really quick gonna put out to our entire audience listeners because this is all I've been able to think about for three days. And it's the fact that no one else says pouring, the rain, apparently except for me as someone from West Virginia. I say talking about water tailored you say that now. Well. I feel like I would say both interchangeably. I dunno porn rain outside. It's pouring the rain outside. Yeah. This is like soda pop. And it was like, oh, which one do you say like either one? I don't know. Yeah. I feel like I've just lived in two very different places. And now just having amalgamate amalgamation of dialect like I definitely said like it's pouring outside without rain in there at all. But also every time I have the words pouring and rain in there. I don't say, it's pouring rain. I say, it's pouring the rain. I said I say pouring their end. And my only roommate who's not from West Virginia had to tell me that the thing she's ever heard in the night tweeted it and had over one hundred people respond and pretty much about ninety eight of them were like, yeah. That's not a thing. I've ever heard. That's insane. Tell tell her that you call a shopping cart, a buggy and see how that goes over. Wait is that a where is that weird thing? Yes. Apparently that is what I didn't apparently to always called him buggies. It took me a long time to realize that like a beam is not a toboggan. Yeah. Yeah. We can't even get into the beanie took toboggan. Yeah. Thing. Or two took to. I don't know. I don't know what's happening with words anymore. English language is difficult. I used to call soda coke. Jill sell soda coke. I blame I blame the south. We lived in the south for a long enough. And I mean, if you live down near Georgia long enough, you'll just assume everything's. I'm loyal to coke. Now's resume you only drink coke. No. But like in the coke, Pepsi battle. You are on Pepsi's or on cokes. Among cokes. I had a fifty fifty chance to stay in the right word right there. Just pick the wrong one Pepsi used to be called Brad's drink. There's my fact for the day grads. Who's Brad offensive Brad? Is it his drink is Brad's drink, then somebody went, you know, that's probably a bad name. That's after drug. That's lay sexier than brab. Again. Brad. So everybody paid their taxes. I'm assuming if not if not I would not say it on a podcast. Yeah. Sisters if you didn't lie right now. I definitely did. Yes. Yeah. I think I think they took a few years off my life, but a paid them. I understand. It was a rough a rough tax season for everyone who's not a Lillian air. Oh, I kind of knew it was coming because like I work at a restaurant. And if you just work at a restaurant, you usually get a some money back that's just normal. When you have a, you know, a job where they take taxes out usually get return at all by friends that I know they have the one job or like, oh, man. I've never owed before it over the first time in my life. What did I do wrong at? I was like, oh, no I do independent contract work like freelance art and stuff, which I always oh four I'm gonna get hurt. And. Yeah. Yeah. I am. You are not alone. It was a rough year for everybody in terms of even if you knew yoed more and people who thought they were getting a return who legit we're planning on it. I read I read many articles about that. Yeah. Many human interest articles people who were hurting tax time. But I think I think that's a relevant topic for our show because one thing that happens to you, generally, I think most of us at some point during our teenage years, either we get a job or we move out or something happens that necessitates that we start attempting to manage finances trying to the key word there. Tempting bold of you zoom. I've made that attempt. The the the management of finances is thrust upon us. Whether we like it or not that's for the first couple times. I don't have money. What did I do not have money again? I keep. It's it's a weird moment. I still remember like there's this whole theory of time when you're a kid where you don't really have money, or if you do it's in the form of like, physical paper money, the like inside agreeing card. Yeah. And you went to your mom and dad, and you're like hitting Clinton movies with my friends. Can I have ten dollars, right? And give you a ten man. Can you imagine going to a movie and having to type pain ten dollars? Gosh. Gosh, I feel old sane. Really grew up in nineteen fifties. I'm gonna go to the movies. We're gonna grab some lunch. I'm gonna hit the soda shop later ten dollars. Maybe maybe get a couple of funny books. You know? When I read on I need to be much cheaper in our lifetimes. Yes. Yes. No. It's true. But but there's a there's a moment where money is that. And like you have like I just remember like I had by my teenage years. I had redesigned my room to have sort of an astrology theme. Good. It had it had like it was like blue with like the sun and moon and stars. And like some vague zodiac looking things I recall correctly, also used glow in the dark puffy paint to draw things on your walls. Yes. And I had a collection of little like those little cardboard boxes in different shapes that mom fainted and one of them was my money. Than held, my whatever I had at any given time like it was right after a birthday, maybe as many as fifty dollars. If it was not. Day, maybe as many as eurodollars dollars. Yeah. Maybe zero but like I had my box. And like, that's where my this is money to me. It's in a box in my room. And when it goes away, I wait till birthday to come back. And then there's the moment where all of a sudden, it's like money means this checkbook or this debit card, and I have to access it. And I am so unclear as to what happens next. I remember Gary train yet. I remember being very confused when I was younger when online ordering things became a thing about how that worked because I was like, well, I only have paper money. So I order it. And then I have to be here, and they deliver it like a pizza, and I I give this to the male person that doesn't this doesn't seem right. That doesn't seem like it's a good. When you go to mom and just say, I'm gonna order something off lying. Can I use your card, and she doesn't know that? You don't know what you're doing either? Yeah. She's like, okay. And then you start putting your credit card information into something. That is definitely not. Definitely not a secure internet location. Yeah. I remember like the wild days of like mom using her like using your credit card give it to made to like enter it on like a fan sub like anime website ended Email to someone and be like, here's the credit card in an Email. We trust you. I want savannah bay. It is this work. Up though, these very nice people are like, yes, you go. We charge you correctly. We could this was the operation of trust fully. I like TBT Twenty-three with all of your debit card for. Cross your fingers. Yes. And like an unencrypted Email. All the formation of the back, my social security just in case. Here. It is. What's my Email password? Well, I could see that it's the same. As all other passwords. It's apple. It's my cat's name. They're all my cats day. One two three four. No. But I I remember very distinctly like getting like mom and dad helping me set up like a Bank account. And now it was like, okay. I can use these checks to make money go from that place somewhere else. I don't have money in there. But if I did that'd be helpful. I have a debit card. Okay. And you know, and it's still funny to think about like at the time that Taylor when you and I would have been I doing this not like the the ability to use your card everywhere. You went was not a given. I mean, a lot of places could use a debit or credit card, but not all and certainly not like all the stores that Taylor. And I might wanna go to right like you had to have cash. So it wasn't like I mean, I I remember getting a card and having checks and then still just having like this sweaty wad of cash that transferred from gene's pocket too. Jeans pocket as I went places. And I knew that was my accounting. That's how I balanced yet islands. My checkbook was that I knew how much cash I had in the pocket of my Veen's. And that was my money. Yeah. Yeah. What have I came to college? That's what I I. That was my first debit card was like putting some money on that like, you know, to get me set up from like loan, money, whatever and I had checks, and I think they were roommates making fun of me for going out one night to to hang out like college kids do at brought my checkbook. Have my debit card have checkbook I have my idea of questionable or I'm good to go. It's like, no, dude. What time do you think you're going to write a check for the subway? I just love him edge of seventy city the bar nervously trying to order drink illegally. And then whipping out a checkbook to pay for like, can I just write the tip? How to fill it out? Do I make it out to you? Or? Budweiser. Who is this to alcohol or beer? Like, you know, like, even if I have cash on me like always bring mccart along case, they'll be happened. And I think it was the same process, but what horrible panic that could have gotten myself the checkbook. I don't know. But I will tell you. I was the same way. I got this. I remember the pocket it was in in my purse because I had this weird like army surplus looking bag purse, and yeah, it was like an army medic bag, and I had the pocket, and it that was the checkbook pocket and it had the pin pocket right next to where the pin went. It was really cool because it was a medic bag. So it had all these little. Hey, that's not really it had all these little dividers in little slots in pockets, you could put medicine in it, except I used it for your checkbook checkbook and my pin, and my chapstick the things you need. That's all you really need is it. I mean checkbook eventually I had a cell phone not then. Yeah. I can probably count the number of checks. I've written in my life on one hand and the idea of having to carry around cash all the time scares me. Because like, here's the thing. If I have a debit card, which I do which is what I use to get pretty much everything. And I lose it or something someone steals my wallet or leave my card somewhere like you, cancel it. And that's like a hassle, but you live eliminate your chances of someone stealing all your money, if you figure out it's gone, you cancel it. And it's like will you get a new one? But if you just have cash, and that's all your money, and someone takes it like, it's gone. That's it is just gone through true. Like, it's not even like a convenience thing for me. My friends always make fun of me. And I'm like, oh, man. I literally have like three dollars in cash and card, but like it just scares me to have all my money just in paper form, but it's it really was it's weird. Because I still find myself like if I go into a smaller store, like not a big giant. Chain store or restaurant or anything like that a place that looks a little more small independent, local, I still find myself looking at the door for the credit card signs on the door for like the MasterCard. A lot of as around here that don't take cards. The just do cash your check they're older, and it, and it's and that's like I think that's where a lot of that came. From was my going out routine was first up ATM to get the cash for the evening. So that whatever I was doing. I had my cash for the evening. I I would never have assumed that the places I was going to go would all except my car at funny because now we have the rise of the opposite. Where places it only deal in cards like paper cash. Yeah. Doesn't happen. I've there's there's a there's a very it's amazing. It's very touristy ice cream place up in Williamsburg, and it's all it's all paperless. But the problem is very Taurus. The area of you know, every like I feel like every I was waiting in line. And this is so long, and it was like kind of a hot day. So I'm like this is why it's taken so log it's hot day everyone wants ice cream. No is because every person cut to the register physically what a kit use cash. Almost wild. Yeah. Five dollars worth of ice cream that I don't have a car. It's like well. Okay. I don't know that see that's that's wild. Because it really is. Like, I I mean, I take it for granted that you can always do cash, and I still have that moment of guilt. Sometimes if it is a very cheap purchase. I still have a little bit of laser card. I I should be. Yeah. I'm sorry. I'm sorry for the car. It's all I have. I still have that moment. The worst is. I know everyone outside of West Virginia is just going to scream when they hear this to park in our parking garage downtown. It costs for three hours parking two dollar. No, no, four dollars one dollars dollar one dollar to park in the parking garage. Now, it's I mean, if you say six hours, it's two dollars. That's crazy. Waller per three hours. So it's a dollar for three. It's two dollars for six. It's three dollars for nine. And that's it. If you lose your card, if you're there all night, if what five dollars total now three three thousand five of you max out at three nothing this one two or three dollars. It's if you can imagine that parking that shape, but I always feel guilty. If like, I'm pulling up, and it's like, I realize I'll have the cards, and then I have to go to the there, and you get a twenty figure twenty 'cause that's the lowest you can get there. And then I have to pull back up and be like I was here for an hour. Here's twenty please. Give me. Yeah. But I I'm sorry. I'm sorry for everyone outside of West Virginia that I can park somewhere for three hours that you just said our parking garage as in the one we have to they're the same though, we have one at the hospital. West Virginia, and it's free at the hospital. I think I think a large part of why I like to avoid carrying cash is my social anxiety, and how it arises in very situations. Like, for example, when I was on a road trip. And I knew I was going to have to go through tolls and each one was going to be four dollars. It was like, okay only need eight dollars. And I looked and all I had was some birthday money that somebody given me or maybe graduation on your something someone and give me a fifty dollar Bill like well, this won't do and the ATM. I went to a gas station was broken. It's like well. I am going to have innings Eddie tactic about pulling up to a toll booth and giving this whole worker a fifty dollar Bill. Hate me. They're going to ask four dollars. So I tried the man of the gas station. He said, no, I won't take it that big. So I was like well. Okay. So I pulled through the Windies in got a soda for two dollars and paid with a fifty dollar Bill and the look that poor Wendy's employee gave me when I hit her fifty dollar Bill for two dollars soda was the worst feeling I've ever to my whole life. She was like do you have anything else to pay with this? And I was like, no, I'm sorry. I need your change. What you know what you have done? What I like this idea? You coulda pulled up to that toll booth handed him a fifty dollar Bill and say this covers however, many cars behind me, this will cover was I supposed to do the next toll tell them to Pat tell well. Yeah, I don't know. This toll angel has been borne take this every really going. I've spend two hundred dollars. It's eight social anxiety. You know, what I I don't know. I'm not I've never worked at a toll booth. But I bet if I was I would not want someone to do that. No. Because the time it would take to explain to each car next. No, you don't have to pay person cigars ahead, and like the person sitting there holding their money going. What what like, okay. And then explain it again. Can you imagine that line of traffic? No, it's fine. Just go just go, and they just stop having tolls because of me paid for everyone's toll. Let's let's focus.

I don't know I read to financial freedom. I I had my debit account and my checkbook, so I was already I thought, you know, the best thing I can do. I don't ever wanna be somebody who gets in debt. So I'm just going to be frugal. I'm gonna try not to spend a lot. I was very lucky in undergrad to be on scholarship. I knew I was going to rack up a ton of debt in med school. Which of course, I did. But in undergrad, I was on scholarship. So I thought I'll do I will do everything I can to take full advantage of this opportunity not to go into debt, and I did. And I was very proud of myself because I thought good good job. You did it up said. Yes, you didn't you didn't do anything frivolous. But the thing I did not know is that because I wasn't paying a lot of other bills. I wasn't you know, I was living on campus. I didn't have like a rent or an electric mill or anything like that. And because I didn't have a crash. It card to us. I was not establishing any credit like at all. And this was not I don't know who should have told me about that. But no one ever did. Yeah. Like, I feel like there should be class. That's just like. How to get like? Yeah. Like how to become Annesley independent at some point like fair basics. Like you credit? It's important. I cut it is a weird thing to get the concept of though, because like I agree with you said like, I was like, well, if I don't have debt, then I've a good like I've a good renter or like, you know, like, that's that's a good. Yeah. Right. Like what I started. I started trying to get into apartments when I was I lived in New York. Like, I I thought that I was good because I could say like you can look at my Bank account. You could see that I can pay my rent. That's literally all I could prove to shoot. Yeah. It's like, okay. So I have to spend money on a credit card regularly to prove that. Okay. But I guess I get it. But it's weird like you have to spend money regularly and have debt on on a regular -cation to prove that you can pay debt it. It's really it's not. I mean, 'cause I entered the world of like, adulthood and finances thinking that it was you have like the amount of money, you're making or, you know, at the time of scholarship from even then eventually like making, and then you have the things you need to buy. And you just make sure that you have more money that you're bringing in than you're putting out then that's finances, and that's it. And that's the end of the story. And I just didn't know there was so much more to it. And it never occurred to me, even when you know, as I still remember filling out all those papers for med school as I was taking on I massive debt and what I was told by anyway. Who I talked about like financial advising about student loans was oh don't ever worry about student loan debt. Student loan debt is good debt. It's good debt. Nobody ever holds it against you. You, you know, you'll you're going to be a doctor. So it's gonna be so easy to pay off. And it won't harm you when you go to do things like try to buy a car buy a house or whatever like, oh, no, no, no that they're not even going to blink. They're going to go. Oh, that's med school. It doesn't matter. Which is. So not true. I don't think there such a thing as good is there. I I would say there's well, this is what a later one of our the guy who helped us when we finally were able to like get a loan to buy our first house, which is a huge struggle for just to do and is so much worse for for many other people. But when we first sat down with him, and I was like he said, first of all, we gotta take you off this paperwork. You're you're a horrible financial risk. All you have debt. And I was like, yeah. But it's I mean, like I'm going to be a doctor student loan debt. It's cool. And he was like none in a now who told you that. And I'm like, well, I don't know. But somebody told me it was good debt. And he was like there's no good debt. Yeah. And I was like, oh what? Sorry. What what? Yeah. I mean. I think there's probably better debt and worse debt. Yeah. Well, I think what we say debt. It means something like having a debt on a credit card like that auto pays like reading up five dollars on your credit card every month painted off that is actually good debt because at does build your credit. Like, yes. Yeah. Ain't things off on a regular fashion showing that you can be responsible and make payments is I guess what people mean when they say that. I say that's the only thing I think that means well, and I've seen a lot of people make the argument that student loan debt, not just med school. But any student loan debt, you could see as like the same way? You would look at like the investment in a company or an investment in a piece of property. Like, I'm gonna like if you're gonna flip a house. I'm gonna buy this house, it's really rundown for a lower price. And I'm losing that money on the front end. Like, I'm paying this money out for something. That isn't I'm not I'm not gonna live in. You don't wanna buy like it's not worth a lot. But the I'm gonna put the time and energy money into its that. I'm going to get so much money back when I can sell it for way, more than what I bought it for him. What I put into it. And all that and you can look at. I've heard people argue that student at is like that if what you're getting a degree in gives you earning potential than it. Your degree is your investment that you put in to get back that lifetime's worth of whatever you're gonna make. In theory. I've heard that argument I think that that might have been true in the past. I just think it's kind of changing landscape of how we look at the I don't know the worth of leg having a college degree. Unfortunately, I mean like it's fantastic thing to have. But unfortunately, it less and less means that you're guaranteed to have like a high paying job. Like, sure sure, I don't know. I also think I don't know. I I think credit cards like the generations before us. It was kind of like just build a bunch of debt live on credit cards. It's fun have debt you'll figure it out. I think it was kind of like willy nilly for. Like, I think you're right. I think I think that was true. We were raised by people that were very much like don't don't do that. That was our bed. Like, I don't know. I think that's it's just it's just generational changes. In how we how money affects the economy. And then how we respond to it. I think that's true. And I think I think that the rise of like, I the idea that you can get a credit card, and you know, they used to. I mean, it was the same thing with like mortgages like people you knew weren't necessarily good credit risks banks were still giving credit cards to mortgages to and stuff that they knew they couldn't pay at the end of the day, which is you know, precipitated the crisis and everything among the problems. But like aside from those kind of almost predatory like kind of practices that a lot of credit card companies definitely use this sprung up this whole idea of predatory lending. I mean of loan sharks of like companies that will like you're in a desperate situation, and you have to have money right now because like your car broke down, and you can't get to work, and I've seen have you seen the Representative Katie porter from she's from like California's. Oh, forty something. The the forty of doing questioning about how those companies work. Yes. Yeah. I've seen that. I would if you have I would check out her on YouTube because she she wrote is it an economics textbook or an accounting textbook economic. Yeah. One of the two, and and she's she's referencing her own textbook as she's questioning members of Trump's administration, which I think is so bad. I can't say that bad. But. But she explains how these loans work and how they catch people. And how like they they know you need the money, and they know that you're desperate, and that you'll do anything, and they know you're not going to be in a position to pay it back. They know they've got you. And once you even if you can't pay it back, the interest is going to be such that you will be in debt to them for all eternity. Like, it's just the. But they know that you are so desperate that they'll take advantage of you. And she Katie for she explains it really, well, I would I would recommend watching one of her YouTube every time I see her. I see your videos as I'm scrolling. And I'm like I have to watch this person. She is so smart and to the point and knows what she's talking about. She's very cool. But, but yeah, you get in the situation with a lot of these like, okay where I have to have money now, I have to do something. So I'll get a credit card, and that was the stuff that like I thought I was avoiding and then it goes the other direction. Yeah. You're no credit risk like. You you have no proven track. Records your credit score sucks, which that was something. I didn't even know existed. Like I had a credit score before. I knew what a credit score was. Yeah. That's a that's a scary concept. Is that hey, have you ever checked your credit score Riley? Nope. In a what I'm gonna tell you why. Because I have had a debit card. I have done as you have done. I have a savings account. And I have a checking account. I put most of my money into savings account. I spend the money in my checking account when necessary, and that's the only spending. I do. So I have not checked my checking right credit score. Because I know it's like bad. I have no credit. Well, it might not be as bad as you think. But it's not good. I mean, that's the that's the thing that little like meter on credit karma read on one end agree on the others. It's gonna be all the way broken on the left side like that. Zero. I mean, it's, but you're you're at the age now where you can you could build like, I I remember started was like my first baby credit card. It was like I think they gave me like a like a five hundred dollar limit. Like, it was not like it was like. Damage. Can you do with this? I like put like my. Yeah. Heating electric Bill on it. And that was it like I locked it away in a drawer like this is not for me to us. I have two bills that are charged and auto pie auto-pay every month ended up for like years. Yeah. That's how I got into my first real like I can lease this apartment on my own like, but you're in a position now. And I'd say this to anyone that's in their early twenties like, you know, younger than that like its yoke. You'll be fine. Start now start now. Yeah, I only have things like my my New York Times subscription in my Netflix. And my my audible this is like. This is like fifteen dollars a month. Just like they're off automatically pays off even to this day. I keep all of my credit cards on auto pay. It's a little bit harder to manage when you have bigger sums going in and out. But it's just like, right? It's better just to do that than to get that notification from your credit agency, like undo charge has been issued against your count. Like, oh, no good. No. It's it's really true. I would I would highly recommend that as people are starting out on their own and taking control and finances. I think, you know, having first of all making sure that you move stuff into your name if stuff previously has been in your parents name like trying to get some things in your name because if you live in the dorms, you don't have an apartment right away. You know, that was important my first debit card. I got when I was I think sixteen or seventeen and I couldn't have my own account. Like it had to be through mom and dad, so it was this weird debit card that wasn't even really a debit card like you just put money onto it. But it wasn't connected to a bigger count. It was like you couldn't. Move money from that account to another one you could just spend from pay as you go. Yeah. It was like a prepaid card. Yeah. And then I turned eighteen and could have my own actual account. And now it is like mine is my own. It's good to have bills in your name. And it's good, exactly. Like Taylor was saying to have things auto drafted like to set that up. So that they just pay automatically John the more you can do that the better. And especially if you do have a credit card where you just put a couple things on put them to auto draft and do that every month. So that like as soon as it's charged it's paid off. Right. And then don't use it for ever as as my loving husband would tell you don't use it for like pizza and video games. You get yourself in trouble that way. But that I think that's a huge thing. I would be careful about credit card companies that advertise on college campuses, the ones that I like to try to sign up for and get free T shirts. Right. But I never I was always too bad of a credit risk to get one. But I did get a t shirt, which was good. I was lucky. It's probably the best result possible. Honestly. Yes. It was good. I didn't get the cards 'cause like they're targeting you for a reason. Yeah. Well, I think I think early. Yeah. Your your credit risk the the credit cards it sound too. Good to be true are just that. It's like I feel like my first heart. It was like you really high interest rate, if you screw up you're gonna pay more money, you can only ever charge as much on it. It's like that sounds about right. No, it really is. I mean, like my first credit card at you said five hundred I wanna say I may have had like a two hundred and fifty dollar limit. I almost said that for by to see that doesn't seem possible. But that yeah. I mean, I think that that's pretty normal. Like they start you out. And that's that's actually probably a good cyanide say because you probably you're not paid an annual fee. You're you're not allowed to really do much damage with it. But that's yeah. That's good. I would I would watch out for store cards. I fell into that trap. With a let's say a department. Name names. But I got a department store credit card because they told me they were like, you know, it would save you how ever much that day. And that's how they got me. Like, yeah, you'll save like twenty five percent today. And I and I my money to let go by these things, and I was like, oh, I could save this much of it. I could get I at the food court on my way out like, I think some Chinese this would be awesome. Like, okay. Yes. Sure. Also up I'll save this money and sound like such a good idea. And I used it a couple times. And then I paid it off in thought. I don't really I I don't know why I got this. I I don't shop enough to even justify having a card. I'm just not gonna use it. And I didn't know that it was one of the cards some credit cards will accrue a fee just for existing. Yeah. Every month. So like every month won't spend money on it. Yes. You just get. And it's it's small typically, it's just a couple of bucks. But if you don't know it's there, and so you're not paying it. Then you're accumulating fees for not paying the minimum. You're not paying your Bill on time. And so maybe have a lot of fees. Maybe all the sudden you get a call because you a department store a hundred fifty dollars, and you haven't bought anything that department store in a year. And you have no idea why you this money, and it's all fees. It's just an accumulation of fees. And so you end up having to pay these people a hundred fifty dollars for nothing. Like, the convenience of having a piece of plastic that was in my wallet for a year. And then and maybe it takes you like a week to get them to actually close you're gonna count. So I would I would not recommend store credit cards as a jumping off point. Yeah. There are a lot of good websites. Actually that help you like when you're especially when you're looking at like next year credit card because the fact this, you know, once you get into the cards, maybe you're paying a fee for it's usually Comey like the ways offset it like, you know, you get this. But then you get airline miles. You know, you you pay. Yes. But then you get you get like, you get certain cashback or whatever. So there are there is their websites out there that actually really good for like, you can just see all of them side by side and like the rankings. So I think if you could do the next year level of or the next level of credit where you're like, okay. I have my baby credit card. Maybe I can have better credit card. I don't know everybody. That's the funny thing that happens is when you finally get the land of like, okay credit every credit card tries to recruit you, but they're not August. Yes. And and yes, so that's that's the that's the opposite side. Like once I got my credit cleaned enough to like just police department. It was like everybody wanted me. But it's like, I don't think I would all of you. I'm going to do some research, and it really is something that like the vast majority of us are going to need to address at some point. I kind of thought I had this weird perception that credit cards were really just like if you wanted to make a lot of extravagant purchases you couldn't afford that. That's what credit card was for which is not the case because having good credit is the reason like that we that Justin was able to buy our first house. I couldn't I was very bad credit risk. But that was why is is, you know, having decent credit. And so like, if you think someday I might want to rent an apartment, I might want to try to buy a house anything that you need to do. And I might want to buy a car, and I mean in in any fashion that isn't just like I have a giant stack of cash to hand you, which that would be awesome. But for most people, yes, we are not living a life where we have giant stacks of cash to hand the car dealer or to hand the house dealers. So real estate agents are how Steelers now because they're not because you're not really paying all the money that real estate agent. They just get their commission is that what a house owner is is every house owner just a house dealer. Just turn the I guess once you're selling it. But then you're also thinking like a lot of that's just going to the Bank 'cause like we don't banks house dealers in a sense every every thanks loans. The majority of. This house. You know, like, we don't own it. I mean, we own you know, what I mean? We don't own these confusing. Yes. Well, and that's the point right. Right. But like, you're probably going to do something in your life that you need credit probably not everybody. Some people are gonna wonder the countryside in their mobile tiny house that they bought outright with cash. And they're never going to. I don't know. Those people though. One thing that I just always felt like in my early housing situations are just like I was the the more responsible one. So I would just pay. I would put all the bills in my name people will pay me back that was just me being kind of neurotic, and like I don't want our heating turned off. But it actually also is really like having bills even if they're tiny like, you know, like your, you know, whatever maybe your gas or electric, it's like twenty bucks, sixty bucks a month. But you know, letting like getting those little payments under your name and not just like paying somebody else. Even if you're paying somebody else that's paying the Bill like, you know, take on what you can because it will help you down the road. Yeah. No it. No. It's very it's very true that the sooner you can like it's great. If you're in a position where your parents can help you out when you first get started because more and more even whether you're straight out of high school into the job market, straight out of high school in college out of college still trying to find a job, you know, which is the situation for a lot of young people now where like out of college putting yourself into more debt, right? Where you're where you're out of college. And you thought this is the time I was going to be able to assume my, you know, financial independence, but I'm not. So if you're if you're lucky enough to be in a position where your your parents are helping you out. That's awesome. But it is the sooner Taylor said, the sooner you can get something in your name and start showing like I'm making money or I can pay things like the easier. It is down there in it. And I'm like, we could get a deeper level that says like all sucks, it all seems so unfair. Yeah. I mean, sometimes it does save like that. There's a lot of between credit and looking at taxes. There's. Lot of purposeful traps that you're meant to fall in that cost you money here money there. But ultimately cost you big money at the end of the day. But you know, you you can. The information's out there. It sucks that. It's not taught in a class. I think that class would be awesome. But yeah. Mandatory like senior year of high school, maybe junior just like how not to screw up your money life. I would love that cloud. I would've loved it so much. No. I think it's very true. And then and and what you can do is like. On the on the larger picture, I think still knowing this information taking control of your life in your finances important in the in the system that exists currently while still working to try to like vote for people who are going to fix it. You know? Yeah. Yes. I think I think both of those ideas can exist. Yes. We we've had this before like, none of I don't think that the system is particularly friendly in this current administration. I think maybe it's a little bit. It's even harder to get head. But yeah, you know, there's. Yeah. The hand you've been dealt and then you you try to work for for better. Thanks to the future. Yeah. No. I mean, I think I think it's that's obviously you have to make that comment having any conversation. Like, this is the ultimate we we should be in a system where it's not so convoluted where it's not so difficult, and where there aren't so many like ways that you can be well, meaning and try to do the right thing. And then like get totally screwed over, you know, by banks lenders, and you know, all kinds of institutions for it like it shouldn't be that hard. And hopefully, it won't after the next election. Yeah. And I get say this to all young artists out there getting paid for art is awesome. You should try to do it. You should definitely charge. What you're worth. But if you ever do get paid like if you're it's money that's going to be taxed just bury it half of the ground. It's awesome to get paid for creating things. But just you know, those of us that have done it's like, oh, wait taxes. None of it. Stick it out. Like if you're used to that. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That sounds like an exaggerated. It's not just trust me. This is good advice. I mean, it really like, yeah. I would say we didn't really get into that. But if you're somebody who is like self pay or you know, you're on your own your own your own business or you do anything in like the creative. We'll have a podcast, and the government doesn't know what that anything like that. And you're not sure how that works talked to somebody. I'll tell you it you have to pay to talk to a financial adviser unless you just have like a nice friend who's willing to give you information for free or your dad. Texas for. But like if you if you don't, and you know idea man, that's that that one conversation is worth paying for because your taxes are not taken out. And oh. Oof. There. There were some rough years there. Where we didn't know what we were doing and get you give yourself a Pat on the back for making enough stuff that it's like gets the taxes. That's cool. Like, you know, like, yeah. But but yeah, no that you still owe taxes taxes are great taxes are wonderful. If you know that you're going to pay them, and you're prepared. I I am pro taxes as long as we're taxing the right people in the right amounts, and they know that they have to pay us. Yes. So what we're saying is someone give me bills to pay. So I got some despair fills. Someone listen. It new. Get rich quick business. Taylor's got bills. You can have them dot com. Gets me credit Bill. We're all. Yeah. We'll make that are what make that are stressful next year during the max fund or you can pay spill we don't we don't not really. No, that's what I'm gonna do. Riley can pay my credit capable is it. Well, I was just saying capable adult subways bills. We're all figuring it out with my shoes on where other than that. But a payment bills adult. Well, good luck everyone. I hope that was helpful.

From you are Boston and NPR. I'm Kimberly Atkins. And this is on point the redacted version of the Muller report will be released this morning in the past our attorney general William bar held a press conference to address process questions and give an overview of the report here he is moments ago. He evidence developed by the special counsel is not sufficient to establish that the president committed and instruction of Justice offense. The report will be delivered to Capitol Hill between eleven AM and noon, and then posted on the special counsels website for all the world to see last month Muller's team found no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to influence the twenty sixteen election, the special counsel did not take a position on whether or not Trump obstructed Justice during the investigation this hour on point waiting for molar. Join us we'll anything in the report change your view of the president this administration. This. Congress. Join us anytime at on point radio dot org or on Twitter and Facebook at on point radio with us from Washington is McKay Coppins staff writer at the Atlantic. He's the author of the wilderness deep inside the Republicans the Republican party's combative contentious chaotic quest to take back the White House. Hello mckay. Thanks for having me. Thanks for joining us. So I just wanted to off the top give us your impression of this press conference that the attorney general just wrapped up. I thought it was a fascinating event. Not the least because I think that the attorney general really went out on a limb beyond where I think a lot of attorney generals in the past might have where he presented himself at least in part as sort of a face of the administration and a if not defender at least somewhat of an apologist for President Trump. He he went up there, and he explained. The findings of the report as he sees them. What he sees as most relevant. He repeated the term no collusion. Multiple times an echo of what we've seen a President Trump tweet for the past two years. But he also, you know, tried to place in context the various questions around obstruction. He noted that there were ten episodes of involving potential acts of obstruction and the president in that the mullahs report examines, and then he offered what seemed to be his opinion of the case. Which was that? Because there was no underlying a conspiracy or collusion that was that was established that that questions of obstruction were if not irrelevant than less important than than some of the president's critics into find. Now, you brought up the attorney general echoing President Trump's refrain that the report found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian election interference. Let's take a listen to that. At indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found no collusion by any Americans in IRA's illegal activities. Now, the IRA refers to the Saint Petersburg based internet research agency, which engaged in online influence operations. But McKay, he paused even when he said, no collusion. I it sounded like he was providing the sound bite that he hoped that. You know, the evening news would use tonight. This gets kind of one of the main criticisms of this whole event this'll press conference, which is that we already had a summary from the attorney general when Robert Muller completed his investigation last month the question that a lot of Democrats are raising his why did we need the attorney general to come? Out here and contextualised and frame, and in their view spin this report that he's about to release why not just release it and let the press and members of congress and the public of to read it and come to their own conclusions. I found interesting as well that the attorney general said that he and deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories winning came to obstruction. What what did you think about that? Yeah. Well, that gets at one of the kind of central tensions here between the special counsel in the attorney general, and frankly is one of the reasons that a lot of people think that this the that William bar is the one that President Trump be attorney general, which is that he has a a view legal view of the X of executive authority that predates President Trump. A, you know, nobody's saying that this is a completely party. In conclusion, but he has a view of executive authority that's pretty broad and pretty sweeping and for this president in the situation that you find himself is a pretty convenient and useful. And so the idea, you know, we we're going to have to read the report in the coming days and see what those legal theories are that he might be disagreement with he was asked about it. And didn't really answer the question and the press conference, but it does appear that some of the things that people on the Muller team might have considered potentially obstructive are that that's an area where the attorney general did not see obstruction, and is one of the reasons that he declined to bring charges or prosecute. Okay. As you would expect. We have a lot of callers. Waiting to ask them questions. David is calling from Lexington. Massachusetts high David. Oh, hi. But you question. I'm just gonna say that to nothing in the report or the report is going to change my mind about the president he's unfit for the job. And what about if there is some evidence that shows, for example, as the attorney general said that he had no corrupt motive that. That's not gonna change your mind about the president at all. I mean, there's so much else. He's done. That's you know, really terrible to he's a we aiding our allies he's he thinks global warming a hoax. He's you know, it doesn't matter. I mean, I, you know, I think he probably does have corrupt mode of shown that time and time again, and it's life. Okay. David we appreciate you chiming in. That goes a a comment on our website from Walter that says, even though I detest Donald Trump. I'm sick to death of the Muller report hysteria. Mckay. How do you think the public is going to react to this? Once it finally comes out. Well, I think that that's an intimate is. Shared by a significant swath of the public on both sides of the aisle, as certainly conservatives and Republicans have argued that this is a witch onto they've come around to kind of the president's view of this. But also, I think a lot of people who are not as engaged politically who are kind of following this. As casual news consumers have now seen two years of updates on Russia and collusion and bit by bit incremental developments and investigation that frankly, even a lot of DC insiders struggled to fully grasp understand. And so, you know, it would be great if the release of this report could provide a moment of catharsis for the country. I think more likely what you're going to see a lot of people a cherry picking from the report to find facts that that support their own conclusions their own views and kind of further double down on on where they are on both the president and the questions of obstruction and collusion. Well, joining me now in the studio is Nancy gertner. She's a retired federal judge now Electra at Harvard Law School, she's a legal analyst for member station. WB you are judge gertner. Thanks so much for coming in good to be here. So I want to ask you the same question. I started with McKay. What was your overall impression of what the attorney general said today I kept on thinking of what he could have said to convey the same message. But didn't say let me start with what he could have said when he began by talking about the extent to which the there was efforts of Russian hacking Russian misinformation disinformation. He could have said that he had no doubt. Then that the investigation was appropriate to begin. That was a good thing would have been a good thing to say he doesn't say that. Although he implies it. And then he is he's using the language not the language of the law, but the language of the political discourse talking about no, collusion, rather? Than the language of no conspiracy. And his I'm looking forward to what he said about the obstruction of Justice issue, th the obstruction of Justice Act and a corrupt intent it sounds like just in. We're just we're just sort of projecting that they will be lots of instances of of obstructive acts things that Trump did beginning with commes firing that would suggest it obstructive act. The question will be corrupt intent, and I have to admit that. I I started to smile when he was saying that he saw no corrupt intent or other Muller. Saw no corrupt intent because the president was so frustrated by these the by these these investigations that some of the things he said and did were a product of that frustration. That is a spin. Pure and simple. Yeah. And what about he the attorney general also seemed to sort of link the collusion investigation with the obstruction one in sort of saying, look, if there was no collusion, if there was no corrupt intent for collusion that sort of that cuts against corrupt intent for obstruction? Do you agree with that was in his letter, which is to say that if he if he can prove conspiracy to obstruct the election, then why is he constrict conspiracy to interfere in the election to why is he obstructing anything? He has no motive to obstruct anything. That's actually doesn't make sense one can obstruct. Because there's a possibility of of someone coming up with something and you're trying to stop it. But it really is. It is really the key corrupt intent issue that mostly is interesting because the corrupt intent issue is really a spin on the president's motives, it's not easy to prove. I appreciate that. But to say that someone did what they did not. Because they wanted to stop the investigation. But because they were upset is really not a line that I've seen drawn before. All right. I want to get some colours in here. Peter is calling from a night a New York. Go ahead. Peter. Hi after excuse me after two and a half years of reckless speculation. We're going to see the Muller report soon. And I think that it would be very prudent for people to wait in wait until they actually see it wait until they actually read it. I'm very disappointed that some of your listeners one of your earlier, callers, basically said I don't care. What's in the report? I don't like Trump. I don't care what the report says. I think that's a really bad thing for our country. We are very polarized, right? Peter, thanks for that. Call McCain ANSI stick with us. We're looking ahead to the release of the redacted Muller report later this morning after the break. Presidential historian Mark up the grove joins the conversation you to join the conversation is your computer fired up and ready to read the report and can really Atkins. This is on point. This is on point. I'm Kimberly Atkins. We're waiting for the redacted Muller report to drop on Capitol Hill and for the rest of the world to see you can join the conversation will anything in their change your view of the president follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio. We're talking with retired federal Judge Nancy gertner. Presidential historian Mark up to grove and McKay Coppins who's joining us via Skype. He's a staff writer at the Atlantic. A Mark up to grow. Thank you so much for joining us now from Austin your presidency. Oh of the Lyndon Baines Johnson foundation and the former director of the LBJ presidential library. Welcome back. Mark. So what was your overall impression of how the attorney general played sort of preview? This report that's coming out next hour. Well, I several your guests. If it I I think what I was struck by is the the pointed use of the phrase, no collusion, which is of course, the the phrase that Donald Trump himself has been using constantly to to discredit this this investigation and and show that he has been exonerated. And I think at the end of the day. That's what that's what exactly what Trump's supporters want to hear Donald Trump knows that and likely William bar does as well. You know, the the historians tried to take the long view, and it's hard to have any view of this at all without seeing the report itself, but it seemed to me as though William bar was was taking the the Trump party line. And spinning the story as as I believe David said earlier. There was really no need to further contextualized the report, we had already seen the contextual decision of the the report in the four page memo that he had issued earlier I want to get to your point about sort of Mirroring, the president's language since attorney general Bart released that four page summary. President Trump has been decidedly on message about its findings over the past three weeks. Let's take a listen special counsel completed its report and found no, collusion and know, obstruct Mars, I'm concerned. I don't care about the Miller report. I've been totally Donna rated the collusion. Delusion is over Mark. You're you're a historian is no collusion. The new. I'm not a crook. I mean, what what put this in some historical context. Donald Trump is is I think is framed the entire thing around whether he colluded with the Russian government around the election or not, but there are deeper issues at play. Ronald Reagan was not indicted around Iran contra when that scandal arose in his second term, but he did he was contrite about his involvement. He he did mislead the American people. And as he said in a statement to the American people after the report from Lawrence Walsh, the special prosecutor in that case, he said your trust is what gives a president his powers of leadership and personal strength. Ronald Reagan knew that the erosion of that trust reduced his power and his strength is a president. And it could well be that the revelations in this report, even if they don't show that the president colluded will further erode. Donald Trump's trust with the American people and reduces ability to enact agenda, McKay Coppins. This report is going to be headed to congress, as you know, Jerry Nadler, who's the chairman of the House Judiciary committee said attorney general William bar is trying to lay the groundwork for how the public will react to the mullahs report. Let's take a listen. Essential concern here is that the attorney general bar is not allowing the facts of the Mola report to speak for themselves, but is trying to bake in the narrative about the report to the benefit of the White House. Mckay. What do you think the reaction from congress will be? I think it'll be fairly polarized as it will be in the rest of the country. I I do think you're going to see Democrats. As we've already seen. They're going. They're they're calling on a Robert Muller to testify the attorney general I believe in that press conference said that he had no objection to that. So it sounds likely that that will happen. A you know, I think that Democrats are going to seize on these episodes of potential obstruction. And and spend a lot of time talking about that. The question though, is will they go as far as, you know, opening new investigations will Republicans as President Trump has been calling tried to open investigations of which they investigate the investigators. You're already seeing as we're talking I'm flipping through given different cable news channels to see how they're covering it. And you see that CNN and MSNBC you're talking about these acts potential obstruction? Fox News has been using the no collusion talking point as their main Tyron. And so I think that the way the media covers it is probably Mirroring their way that you're going to see the two parties in congress react to in where they're gonna go from here. Nancy gertner a little earlier we were talking a little bit about the the mindset of behind a a President Trump and how that factored in attorney general bar echoed, President Trump saw talking point of no collusion. And he said it shows the president thought the Russia investigation was politically motivated. Let's take a listen there is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. What what do you think about that legal? Analysis. Well, it it's it's a very curious one in the sense that he had a sincere belief. He was frustrated by the by his view that this was an illegal investigation. But one of the premises of what bar was saying is that it was appropriate because there had been Russian hacking. So he was frustrated by something which he didn't have a right to be frustrated at which was an appropriate inquiry. The other thing is to to then characterize even someone who is frustrated the at the unprecedented investigation could turn around and nevertheless, tried to deep six an appropriate investigation. Having said all of that third point is that the the it's very difficult to determine corrupt intent from someone you never interviewed. And so you really didn't have all the factors. But everyone who looked at this case understood that the question of the intent with which Trump did what he did was critical the account from bar makes it look like a jump ball to me. As opposed to clear when can imagine I fired Komi to get off the Russian investigation because I thought the Russian investigation was a witch hunt. But of course, I wasn't wrong. I was wrong about that. As the report suggests when I go to a colour Zach is calling from Illinois. Hi zack. Hi, thank you for having me on. I'm just gonna. Yeah. Echo a bit of a cinnamon nose. Just made just I'm not sure what anyone truly expected and why so much weight has been placed in this report. Trump has already had his, you know, bar placed in the parliament of Justice and everyone basically already saw Trump admit to obstruction in front of Lester Holt in front of cameras on NBC. And so the argument can easily be made that he been ten in that instance, woods heading our system. Whether that's better than corrupt intent is to be seen. Well, you know, I'm going to go to McCain. Thank you for that. Call Zach I'm gonna go to McKay on that. We're going to be getting these this pieces of evidence that are both in culpa, Tori, and exculpatory to use legal terminology on this issue of obstruction. And some folks like Zach have seen with their own is the president do things that looked like obstruction? How do you think the White House is going to to respond to that in message that an and members of congress? Mckay there. You know, what else row that? Yes. I hear you now. So I think that that's an interesting question because I think that what you've seen the White House do since the four page summary came out, and I think they'll continue with his strategy is fixate on the initial question of was there collusion whether a conspiracy between the Russian government in the Trump campaign and point to the fact that there was there was none established. And then they'll on this broader question of of obstruction. They'll use the argument that I've heard them making for a long time, you know, one of the initial things that people like the caller have pointed to is that during the campaign, Donald Trump stood up and said Russians if you're listening. I wanna see Hillary Clinton's emails, right? And they've said, well, isn't that an example of of collusion in plain sight, the end the Trump campaign's response in the White House's response has been well that happened in plain sight in people already knew about it. They elected him. I think what will here in the coming days weeks is these potential acts of obstruction didn't happen in secret. They happened in public. People already have their opinions about them. They already know what what happened. There's been exhaustive coverage of them. And so I in less the special counsel is willing to come out and make a definitive call and say, this was obstruction, which of course, he declined to do then this is a Republic debate in you can have your opinions, but it, but you know, the attorney general's completely within bounds to not prosecute into not pursue any further prosecutions. Alex is on the line. He's calling from Worcester Massachusetts. Hi, alex. Hi, thanks for taking my call. My question is about this term of art corrupt. Intent the way that I heard AG bar talk about it. Earlier kind of made me my understanding was that his his definition of corrupt and ten is more centered on why you would want to obstruct or hinder an investigation rather than whether or not you wanted to obstruct or hinder it, and he seemed to say that maybe because there was not an underlying crime. But Trump was you know, very frustrated that that you know, he wasn't trying to do something for a corrupt reason. And I was wondering if there was any kind of precedent for that. Because to me corrupt intent would be wanting to stop an investigation, you know, period. Not why I wanted to do it Nancy. They corrupt intent is that you what you were doing was not inadvertent with not accidental what was really an effort to interfere with the procedure. Ding. And the question of how far back you go is the issue. You know, I I told my neighbour who's a just being subpoenaed to you know, that she shouldn't talk about me or else, I'm gonna you know slash her tires and my corrupt intent I did it knowingly. Did it intentionally because I didn't want bad information to come out me for about me? It could be part of a broader plan, but it doesn't have to be. And that's what's interesting about this. Let's assume the president was massively frustrated by an investigation, which he thought was insubstantial the investigation as it turns out was not insubstantial that frustration can't be the basis then for obstructing Justice. In other words, there's no reason that the corrupt intent has to be I wanted to cover up my Russian involvement as opposed to I wanted to get rid of this investigation. Because it was undermining me there are lawful ways of doing that. Which is you wait for an investigation. You wait for the conclusion, and then their unlawful ways of doing it. And if his own. Only purpose was to stop this. Because it it, you know, it was unprecedented. And he thought it was a witch hunt. It seems to me that that's in the zone of corrupt intent let let me just say one other thing all of this is about whether Trump committed a crime the impeachment issues about fitness for office are less than crimes. And so the question is whether in the Muller report, they will be anything that comprises impeachable offenses, even if not formally a crime. All right. I wanna go to Mark up to grove on the issue of how the White House fully cooperated in the words of a attorney general bar all he said that the president took no action that deprived the special counsel of his ability to conclude this investigation Martinez Inc. That was meant to sort of help frame the frame, the White House in terms of how now congress is looking at this with a potential I on obstruction and also. So for history to sort of say, hey, this president was cooperating and therefore, you know, that's what the public should keep in mind. I do believe that was a case it it was pointed out earlier that the president was not interviewed. Which is. I think a a significant thing as well. He he did not wait on this directly. And and probably should have look at the one of the things that you what's contextualized here in terms of the special prosecutor statute in the course of our history, these are inherently political processes they've they've been political since the beginning of time if we go back to the last major special prosecutor situation, it was it was with the in the Clinton administration and Bill Clinton appointed somebody a special prosecutor to look into whitewater, a a a Arkansas real estate scheme that he and his wife Hillary had participated in th they've looked into whether they were illegal activities around that the special prosecutor was. Was ultimately fired not by Bill Clinton. But but by a circuit court in Washington DC, and Kenneth Starr was put in and that led to other investigations that eventually led to Clinton being investigated for sexual improprieties. We, of course know Monica Lucy, the point is here that what what there was no illegality, but it had an adverse effect on the Clinton administration. Ultimately, he wasn't peach by congress but not expelled by the Senate with a two-thirds majority vote. It also is significant to to mention that Clinton's popularity increased during that time not decrease during the impeachment. That you know, that was twenty years on and and we we know now how how history views President Clinton. How do you think? History will look back on this moment in ten years or twenty years or fifty years. It's very difficult to say it takes at least a generation for us to get a clear perspective on a presence administration. Because it takes that long passions to cool, particularly the a president is controversial and divisive. As President Trump has been, but I will say and I'll go back to that word. The one thing that we know about President Trump is he is extraordinarily divisive. And he hasn't done anything to really manifestly unite this country and has made this process polarizing for the American people. I think there's no question about that. But it's hard to to know how history will ultimately judge this this president. Particularly against since we haven't seen what is written up in in the more important, and what's been redacted. And members of the public are already making up their minds about this. Here's a comment from our website of from Tom w it says shift Nadler at all should be prosecuted for obstruction of Justice. They lied about collusion for two years and promoted the collusion hoax in an effort to influence the outcome of the Mueller investigation. And another comment is says is there anyone else hoping for some leagues from Muller or his team? We've known them to not leak very much. I'm going to ask my guests to hold tight. We're awaiting the release of the Miller report. You can join the conversation. What's your question for our panel? I'm Kimberly Atkins. This is on point. This is on point. I'm Kimberly Atkins in the next hour. A redacted version of the mullahs report will land on Capitol Hill the four hundred plus page report is the capstone of the two year investigation into Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election in March the special counsel did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired with Russians to influence the outcome of the twenty sixteen presidential election. It did not reach a conclusion about obstruction of Justice by President Trump. You can join the conversation. President Trump said I don't care about the Muller report. Do you follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio? We're talking with presidential historian Mark up to grove retired. Federal Judge Nancy gertner and McKay Coppins a staff writer at the Atlantic. I wanna play a little bit of sound here from attorney general bar of just a while ago. He said, President Trump's personal council requested and we're. Given the opportunity to read the final version of the redacted report before its public release that request was consistent with the practice. Followed under the ethics in government act, which permitted individuals named in a report prepared by an independent counsel the opportunity to read the report before publication, the president's personal lawyers were not permitted to make and did not request any reductions so McKay, it seems that the president and his legal team got a bit of a sneak peek before congress did what did you make of that? Yeah. I mean, certainly it's going to fuel further suspicion of this process. But if we are to take the attorney general at his words that the president's personal council wasn't able to request reductions or did not request reductions that were not seeing some kind of altered report as a result of that. Then my hope is that the facts of the report when when it's released is ultimately going to triumph, and that all these other questions about the process will continue to be debated, but will be secondary to what's actually found by the special counsel and Nancy on this issue of getting that advanced copy, I guess it. The attorney general said that it's consistent with the law. Do you see any legal complications there? I I don't see any legal complications. But you know, I want I want to envision an alternative universe. If this report. Really did in this investigation and exonerate Donald Trump. Wouldn't it have been better to do this to play this more straight than the attorney general that's not a legal issue? But a political issue that is to say not give a sneak peek to one side when they didn't with the other not to do a four page summary when presumably there were summaries internal to the report that Muller had prepared now to use the language of Trump rather than the language of the law. If he had talked about a conspiracy rather than collusion. It seems to me this would have felt very different. And likewise, if you he had begun to sort of redress the damage that he did by talking about spying by saying Trump may have believed that this was an illegitimate investigation. But it wasn't there was evidence of Russian interference. And there was evidence of campaign context and that had to be investigated. I want to get a call in here. Kevin is calling from port. Land main. Hi, kevin. Good morning. Good morning. Go ahead. Kevin. Yes. I I I have a theory that I'd like your panel to address. Isn't it possible? That bar put out this glowing report. Let's call it what it is total. Vindication of the president. How can front of the report because the report actually has quite a bit of politically damaging embarrassing ill, advise meetings, whatever and and bar wants to control the narrative totally a head of what's going to have a lot of damaging embarrassing information for the president. Thank you. No. I think I think that's right. I think that's right. And I think that that's why people have to put this in context. And the context is there is the, you know, it's like adding up a column of figures and does it amount to a crime. Well, he's saying no it does not amount to a crime does it amount to impeachable offense. Well, it made the details in that may amount to an impeachable offense bear in mind that you know, Clinton and Nixon were both articles of impeachment included, obstruction of Justice. And no one was talking about prosecuting them for that. And then the third category is what does it say about impropriety fitness for office, which is also in play with the special prosecutor's report. So you're right. I mean, they're the the notion that there's a need for spin is troubling here. And suggests that there's something there Mark up to grove from a historical context. Do you think there is something to to Kevin's question that was attorney general bar looking at the long game here? Perhaps. So again, I think the attorney general was was adopting that the Trump party line and spinning, but I think Nancy makes it very very good point, which is vitally important here. Which is there are two different things. There's a big difference between illegality and determination as to whether somebody is fit for office. And there there could very definitely be revelations in this report when we see it that that leads lawmakers to conclude that this president is not fit for office and that could lead to impeachment proceedings in the house, which could then lead to a trial in the Senate, which would necessitate a two-thirds majority vote to expel the president from office. So, you know, it does not have to be a crime committed here for the president to be seen as being unfit for office and have essentially what would amount to a no confidence vote in congress. Talk about the issue of executive privilege here attorney general bar said because the White House voluntarily cooperated with the special counsel's investigation. President Trump would have been well within his rights to assert executive privilege over a significant portion of the report of the reports material. Let's listen following my March twenty ninth letter the office of the White House counsel requested the opportunity to review the redacted version of the report in order to advise the president on the potential invocation of privilege, which is consistent with long standing practice following that review, the president confirmed that in the interests of transparency and full disclosure to the American people he would not assert privilege over the special counsel's report. I want to go first to McKay that the fact that the president did not invoke executive privilege. We as reporters were wondering all along the way, they were going to do just that. What did you what did you make of that? Well, I think it's a positive development. I mean, I think that you know, I don't know what is motives were. My guess is that he had plenty of people the president in his circle who were telling him that doing that would be kind of politically disastrous and would just further consume his presidency in scandal. But, but I do think that this is a good moment to kind of pull back zoom out and and to to kind of positive things to good things. One is that for all the president's bluster in reported threats of firing the special counsel. You know, we saw reports about this throughout the investigation. The investigation was allowed to be completed and the report is about to be made public the redacted report. At least the other good thing here is that the at least on this question of collusion or conspiracy. It I think it's a good thing. But whatever you think of the president and his politics and everything else we should be able to agree that it's a good thing that there was no conspiracy between the president of the United. States and the Russian government that was established swing a presidential election. And I hope that as a country, we can at least acknowledge those things as we move forward on the rest of these questions. Let's take a call from David calling from Seabrook. New hampshire. Hi there. David. Thanks for having me. I was just gonna you know, your initial question about what this change opinions for me. No. I mean, the transparency of this presidency is or don't Trump is pretty pretty low. You know, he says he's a genius. But no one can see his grades. He says he's a millionaire billionaire, but no one can see his tax returns. And now there's going to be a tremendous fight to get a unredacted report into the hands of people who should get the dish area committee, or whomever. I can understand they wanna sources and methods and things of that nature. But it just seems like why would anyone believe anything that this person in this administration is doing David we appreciate you calling a Jimmy's on the line? He is calling from Moore, Oklahoma. Hi there Jimmy. Hello. I just wanted to say I'm looking forward to the report. And but the thing I think happened today is wait embar past the litmus test of loyalty for Donald Trump. And that's we know that that's what he requires. But I think Mueller Muller is somebody that we don't get to hear from that type of person very often that kind of. Honesty. I guess and so that's why I look forward to. That's all okay. I wanna talk a little bit about what we might expect to hear from congress. Let's take a look at some things that some members of congress have already said here is New York Republican congressman Peter King. Speaking on Fox News yesterday about what he will be looking for as the mullahs report comes out. I know there will be no evidence at all of any collusion. And we Democrats say not enough to show a criminal case. No, nothing at all is probably collusion as far as obstruction of Justice. I think probably they'll be elements in there was firing. Jim told me of -struction of Justice was criticizing the mullahs investigation shorts injustice. I would say absolutely not. I think the Democrats are going to try to hang their hat on some of those allegations. And then whatever it is any word that's redacted or blacked out. They say that's where the conspiracy was in Connecticut democratic congressman Jim Himes spoke with CNN's quiz. Chris cuomo. Last night. He said that he trusts that the special counsel had good reasons for choosing not to subpoena, President Trump for testimony during the Muller investigation. Unlike the attorney general who's been a just a an unbelievable disappointment to me guy that I thought had some stature I still put an awful lot of face faith in Bob Muller. So let's let's hope and let's give him the benefit of the doubt that he had good reason for doing what he did. Now. Mckay, we've known for a while that that a speaker Nancy Pelosi all but has taken impeachment off the table. She's raised the bar very high on that. So when we're hearing both sides come out, and and message in congress, what will be the end game here. Well, that's the that's the question. Right. I mean, the question of impeachment was even before the report was the investigation was completed. There was not a huge appetite for impeachment on the hill. Even among a lot of Democrats certainly among democratic leadership today. I don't see that being different. Now. Let's see what's in the report may be depending on what these episodes of potential obstruction. Look like and how the public reacts to them. Maybe that'll change more likely. What I think you'll see is is a lot of partisan politics going on now there. There is good reason. There is is good reason to hear from Bob Muller. And if he is invited to testify in except that that invitation and testifies before congress, I think that that could be valuable for for us as a country to see I, but I think that what you'll see is remember we're entering into a presidential campaign season. A lot of democrat. That's in congress are currently running for the democratic primary, and they're going to be using this as an opportunity to cater to their base to be seen as somebody who can be tough against Trump. Somebody the Democrats can trust go up head to head against Trump and a general election. And I think that we'll see a lot of partisan Deatrich in the coming weeks on the hill around these issues. But I it seems unlikely that they're going to amount to impeachment at least in less something dramatically changes Mark up to growth. There's bound to be more information in this four hundred plus page report, not just about the legalities, but sort of paints the broader picture that does a lot of other people including members of President Trump's White House in his family. Of course, there was that two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump junior, Jared, Kushner, Paul Manafort, and in Russian lawyer Natalya a vet, Linda sky. I have always have trouble saying that name about this proper dirt on Hillary Clinton, for example, or or what Roger stone. A what connection he may have had involving WikiLeaks? Or maybe even more details about Paul Manafort in his connection to to Russian and Ukrainian nationals is that gonna play a major role in shaping the history of this. I think there's no question that doesn't look good. Whether it's good, whether we find evidence of collusion or or obstruction of Justice, or whatever those things simply don't look good. And I think the one thing that we can say can release it. I I think you can fall Donald Trump for discrediting the process through which this was investigated in calling it a witch hunt. There was clear evidence as our intelligence apparatus determined that that the Russians were interfering with our elections. That's at this point. That's incontrovertible. And there is nothing more important to do. Moxie than the integrity of our elections. So this is a process that had to play out. And I think if our president should want to see what was revealed around the possibility of of Russians a foreign power tampering relation that that there has to be transparency around that. So that that was one of the things that that disappointed me. And I think that there will likely be revelations in this report that are are further damaging to the Trump camp. Time is almost up. But I wanted to put to you the issue or the question the point that attorney general bar made about the nation should feel relieved that this report concluded that. There was not action among President Trump or members of his campaign to collude with Russians. What's your response to that? We should feel really that. There was no overt conspiracy. But let me just sort of distill from this a couple of facts, the Russians interfered with our election. President Trump rewarded them for that interference with discussions of lifting sanctions, and with discussions de legitimizing that observation so while we should be happy that it didn't amount to a crime. What you have is someone who in is by his word and deed rather than investigate. He's encouraging the Russians to do it again. All right.

Muellers Low-Key Rebuttal Blows Hole In Exoneration

"This portion of PNL is brought to you by pimco for investors who demand more than the markets deliver all investments, contain risk and may lose value consult, your investment professional before investing. Welcome to the Bloomberg PNL podcast. I'm Paul Sweeney along with my co-host these Abramowicz. Each day, we bring you the most noteworthy and useful interviews for you and your money, whether at the grocery store or the trading floor. Find a Bloomberg PL podcast on apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts, as well as at Bloomberg dot com. With us is Andy Harris who is illegal reporter for Bloomberg news and joining us here in our Bloomberg attractive proper studios con nowadays, former corruption and fraud prosecutor for the US attorney's office in the southern district of New York, and a partner at Venable. I con I want to start with you. What was your biggest takeaway from those statements? I think the big takeaway is. Muller is a consummate professional. He speaks through his indictments and through his report. And that's very clear from his statement, if you noticed he kept quoting from the indictments from what the grand jury returned, and he said, basically, I speak as a prosecutor as a law enforcement officer through my report and through by charging documents and that's all you're going to get from me. So I think one of the inching aspects from his commentary was that the did not believe that he could or the office could indict sitting president. What is your understanding of that is that a is that a constitutional issue as a DOJ policy issue because I know there's some question about that. It's DOJ policy based on reading of the constitution, and that's been DOJ policy for quite some time. What, what I find interesting is you have AG bar Torney general bar on the one hand being surprised that Bob Muller didn't reach a conclusion prosecutorial. Inclusion. Implying that he could. And on the other hand, Bob Mueller Muller hewing, close to DOJ policies and playing the role of a prosecutor Andy come on in here. What was your takeaway from this, these comments will tagging onto that observation, I think that the special counsels remark that quote, if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime. We would have said, so is pregnant with portend it, it runs expressly counter the presence, no obstruction. No collusion narrative and infers that he's been anything but cleared. But that the special counsel, believed that there was some other process for addressing that I e congress and potentially the unspoken I word impeachment. So this was as low key, as it was something of a rebuttal to the president, and to his allies, who have said that he's been cleared so conned do you believe that or do you believe that special? Council will be called in front of congress to testify. And if so, you know, is he going to expand anywhere outside of the scope of that agreement or findings will Paul, you just heard him? He basically said he's going to hue very closely to the report. And that's what he's going to do. So I think he's signaling to congress, you know. You know, call me, but that's all you're getting well, but, but Andy raises a really good point, which is, yes, he was hewing closely the report, but he curated the statements that he made from said report. And, and really that one statement saying if he believed if the group had believed the president had committed no crime, they would have said. So is that the key takeaway from this report? And does that indicate that he sort of nudging other parts of government to take action? I absolutely agree with you, because he is a shooed man. He's very wise. And he picked very few words to say today, and that was one of the words, he said those words about how guess what everybody going back to that report headline, I couldn't say, and I can't say today that the president didn't commit a crime. So Andy, what does the feeling within the beltway here? What are you? What is your sense of what, how Democrats will maybe take this commentary the statement from Mr. Muller as it relates to kind of how they view the presidency, whether it continued oversight or even the impeachment proceedings will occur tie house? Democrats, not, not obviously speaker Pelosi has been under substantial pressure from some factions in the house to initiate impeachment proceedings. Immediately judiciary committee chairman Jerrold Nadler has been trying to get a less redacted version of a report, plus the underlying evidentiary. Periods that were gathered up by the special counsel's office. Clearly, there's it's almost volcanic pressure to do something in response to this. But an impeachment is tantamount to a criminal proceeding brought by congress resolved during President Clinton's term, and you can't really initiate this. You can't go off half cocked. You gotta have your gun loaded. You gotta know what the evidence is before you can start casting allegations, this will, no doubt ramp up the pressure on speaker Pelosi, it may even ramp up the pressure on eternal barring the Justice department to turn over some of the information that the House Judiciary committee is demanding. So I'm wondering about a general William bar, and his role in this, the idea that Robert Muller was sort of contradicting some of the things that William Barr had said about being surprised that they didn't come to some sort of recommendation. What do you make of? Attorney general bars performance up to date and what his likely response will be. So taking your your first question, you know, I think trying general bars into tough position. I think both Bob Mueller and attorney general bar are coming at this situation from viewpoint of how to be fair and. Bob Muller just said, listen. The reason we didn't say that the president committed crimes because we can't charge him, and that's unfair right to say somebody committed a crime. And then there's no court, there's no criminal case for the president to defend himself. I can imagine returning general bar. Having the flip side of that. Saying, listen, you have this report with all this stuff in it, and you didn't say either way, what your viewpoint was. And now this report will be out there, so I'm going to have to say, listen, there's not enough to charge obstruction because that the report itself is unfair. So I, I think there are two ways to, to look at that from attorney general bars perspective. Trying to be fair to the president by saying, well, this report is out there. They're going to want to know what does DOJ think so it's unfair to him if I don't say something so con-, what do you think your former colleagues in the southern district of New York are going to do next? They're going to keep doing what they do every day, which is investigate investigate crimes. I think Bob Muller just made a very important point by saying, you know, the opinion allows us to investigate the president, and this is an investigation that should have happened. So that kind of insulates than investigation. Same time the prosecutors and some the district of New York they're investigating. Things related to Manafort there. They've just charged the, the banker with bribery who's involved with Manafort. They have other investigations going on, and those will continue those will continue beyond this presidency. Andy, I'm wondering we are expecting to hear from attorney general bar within the next few weeks. Isn't that? So I believe that we are, of course, again, this is a very fraught relationship that the attorney journal has right now with House, Democrats. It'll be interesting to see what context redo here a committee, there are believers judiciary committee, actually voted to hold the attorney general in contempt for spurning a subpoena to appear before them that has not yet gone to the full house for a vote. So it's kind of hanging out there in the either. But at some point in some format, we will likely hear from the and just we have a sense of what attorney general, bars reputation is sort of how his comments have been perceived, an end sort of. What you're hearing from the legal community. Boy, that's really an eye of the beholder question, it, this isn't his first go around as journal, he also served on the ministration of President, George Herbert Walker Bush, and where on the one hand, so people see him as a dedicated and experienced law man in a good choice for the job on the other hand people from across the aisle. Look at him as somebody who is a partisan, and I think it was William Safire, one point called him general cover up, so bars reputation is again depending on who's looking into whether or not the glasses half empty or half full. Andy harris. Thank you so much, Andy, Harris Harrisburg, legal reporter joining us giving his thoughts on the mother statement. Joining us right now is Tim O'Brien executive of her Bloomberg opinion on staying with us as kind Nowaday, former corruption and fraud prosecutor for the US attorney's office in the southern district of New York, and a partner at Venable LLP. So Tim just love to get your take away from the statement by Mr. Muller. I don't think he was saying anything particularly new, I think he clearly used this opportunity to talk about the fact that its investigation was wrapped up, and then he was moving on to emphasize what he think was was important about his work and to me, the two things popped out were obstruction of Justice undermines the core mission of law enforcement investigation. And, and I think he chose to emphasize that perhaps, because the attorney general William bar did not, especially when he first rolled out the mobile reports findings I think. Secondly, he made a very I think trenchant point about the fact that if they could have absolve, the president of not committing a crime they would have done. So on the other hand, they didn't feel it was within their power to charge the president with a crime. And I think that really highlights again, the second half of the mullahs report, which focused in great detail, and at great length on obstruction of Justice issues. And I think that that's going to be one of the things that lingers over analysis of the mullahs report analysis of what Bob Mueller chose to do and not to do in and why the attorney general took the actions. He did in your view. Does this change the political calculus at all in terms of what congress does with the Muller report? Well, I think there's two things here that, that, that make that a difficult question, Lisa. I think the first is that there's a political analysis as to whether or not impeaching, the president or going. Down a more hardcore path presents political problems with the Democrats in twenty twenty and that's certainly what Nancy Pelosi is, is weighing in all of this on the other hand, we are a nation of laws and, and we live on the idea that there's a rule of law and no one is above the law, and if laws have been broken Justice should be meted out. And so there's a second piece of this, that she just correspond with, with the laws. Tell us to do and to a certain extent, these things are knocking heads the political calculus of twenty twenty versus what we should do as a nation of laws. And I'm just wondering, kind come on in care because of laws, it definitely does go to congress, but there is a question of what other courts could do. And what other prosecutorial offices could do if it is not possible to indict a sitting president through the legal system. So that raises a question about some of the investigations at SUNY. Right. That's, that's absolutely right. You know, beyond the investigations that the. District of New York has going on charge cases and other kinds of cases. There's also the New York Turney general's office is being very aggressive with going after Trump or the Trump organization as well as people related to the Trump organization, so. If people investigate things that's what prosecutors do. And there is the report shows the mull report shows, there's a lot to investigate and there's a lot to do. There are a lot of trails to go down. And once you open an investigation, it's very hard to close sees it's easier to open one, then close one because you have people invested and people follow trails people do their jobs. So Timothy think the response will be from the president to Mr. Muller statement. I imagined that they'll say, but again, I don't know. But that, that Robert Muller came out to say that this investigation is over, and it's time to move on. That's what the president has said consistently a more cloak real version of that would be get over it. But the reality again, is that there are facts left, that need to be explored, I think, around financial conflicts of interest, actions taken by the president and members of his team during the two thousand sixteen election as pertains to obstruction of Justice during the transition of the White House and thereafter that are still unresolved, any idea what the Republican response will be just real quick. Get over it. They're gonna behind. And solid on their messaging around this. I really appreciate both of you being here with us today. It really is an interesting conclusion to a very high profile case understated, perhaps, but trenchant is a great word really every word that, Bob Muller speaks, incredibly powerful. Tim O'Brien, thank you so much for being here with us executive editor columnist all things having to do with President Trump, and everything related for Bloomberg opinion. Also con Nowaday thank you so much for being with us. Former corruption and fraud prosecutor for the US attorney's office in the southern district of New York and a partner at Venable l l p. Today fixed income demands more than a fixed approach.

Pimco all investments, contain risk and may lose value. Investing in the bond market is subject to risks consult your investment professional prior to making an investment decision. I take a look at the bond market bond yields continued to grind lower. The yield curve is inverted the question for many investors is does this mean a recession is imminent to answer that and other issues? We will speak to our good friend Jim Bianco gyms, president and founder of Bianca research. He's also contributed to Bloomberg opinion based in Chicago. Jim, thanks so much for joining us. So do you think the fed will heed these warnings of inverted yield curve, and so on and cut rates or were they risk creating a recession? It's a good question, and they should heed the warnings. It's a market signal that policy is too tight. But if you look at their public statements over the last couple of weeks, the vast majority of Federal Reserve officials have said that they do not see a need to cut rates anytime soon. And in couple of them are even still talking about that. The next move would be a hike. So I would like them to listen to this statement or to this market signal. That policies too tight. That's why the yield curve adverts, if the yield curve stays inverted for a protracted period of time. It just can cumulatively ways on the economy until you potentially get a recession the way you steepen the yield curves you. Cut short term interest rates. I hope the fed listens to that in does that exact thing. Well, Jim it depends what yield curve, you look at because actually they're different stories being told depending on where in the curve, you look the s we are seeing an inversion in the ten year three months curve, but further out not so much. In fact, you're seeing a steepening the, the extra hilt investors are getting to own thirty year treasuries over ten year. Treasuries has actually increased a little bit. So why should we pay attention to that one? That is sort of what people are worried about right now. You're right that the thirty year yield is, is got a massive steepening. It's forty five basis points almost half a percent higher than the ten year note, but the thirty year tends to be kind of. Special trading vehicle with not as much economic implication, as say the tenure in the three months to most economic studies have been done on the tenure in the three months. It's been modelled off of that you'll curve. And that one seems to play the best with giving us an economic signal that the signals you'll get from the bat from the far end of the curve, like the thirty year tenure spread tend to be more technically driven about flows in about trader sentiment and a lot of things that do not directly impact on me. That's why I focused on tenure three months as much as I do. So Jim, the euchre inverted earlier this year. It's, it's verdict now is there a certain time period, where in terms of duration that it starts to get your attention. Do you think it should get the market's attention? Yes, I've used ten consecutive days and we're in day four right now. Back in March, we got the five days and then it uninvited. Now, why do I use that conceptually? What I'm trying to say here is. The yield curve is inverted today. It means policy is too tight today. It means policy was too tight yesterday if it continues week after week month after month and I'll use ten consecutive days because once you start getting into that room, you usually don't invert it. But if you stay inverted for a month, or two months, or three months, the cumulative, effect of saying policies to tight every single day starts to weigh on the economy can handle a couple of weeks of it could maybe handle a month of it, but beyond that you start getting into problems. And what I found is after ten days, that usually is a good enough signal that usually means we're inverted. We're going to stay there and it will continue on until the fed changes policy. So what actually happened trigger this latest bout of yield tightening? I mean, honestly, we've been talking about trade concerns for a while Morgan Stanley coming out this morning and saying that actually some of these jitters began while the four that and port and foretell downturn that would have happened, regardless of trade. Do agree. Yeah. I do agree with that. And I think that what's changed is the perception on inflation in the answer. Is there isn't any and there's none coming? And now we've got coudl prices, which is a big input to headline inflation falling, and it also has an additive affect on Korn flation, as well to most economists will say, look, the Fed's not going to cut rates. Look at the economy, the economy's fine. That's what the market's looking at the markets looking at no inflation at all. No, you've got falling. Crude oil prices. Maybe is Gary schilling wrote in a Bloomberg opinion column yesterday. And I thought he made a credible case trade wars, and tariffs, could maybe even be deflationary for the economy to if that's going to depress inflation, then I think that's what the market's focused on saying, look you've got very low inflation. That's what's restrictive about interest rates. And that's why you need to cut. It's not about real GDP at this point. So Jim the, the. Fed has said, pretty consistently recently that it is dated dependent. What data? Are you looking at what, what date are you putting into your model? I'm looking at the inflation data right now. I think that, that is the data that is going to that is driving. Why the curve is inverted. Why the fed fund futures are saying that there will be a hike excuse me, a cut in September. So I'm looking at the inflation compensation from the from the treasury inflation protected securities market or the tips market on looking at a lot of the inflation numbers, as well to some of the surveys, and it's and the price of crude oil because that is a big import into what people's perceptions are of inflation, and all of that is going down right now, especially overseas in Europe, your multi year lows in some of those market measures of inflation expectations screaming at Mario Draghi that he should be considering something as well too. In terms of cutting rates are easing policy. So those are the inputs them looking at an all these inflation expectations. In actual inflation numbers are heading lower, and that's why this market wants a cut we're speaking with Jim Bianco, the president and founder of Bianco research talking about these story of today, which is the drive lower in benchmark government bond yields globally, in developed markets. And I'm trying to figure out Jim what exactly does this say about risk assets because up until now, lower yields has meant support for riskier, credits as well as equities is this time different with respect to that, too. It's getting there. You're definitely right. That normally you would is seen lower yields be somewhat supportive. But I think that the reason you're starting to see risk assets wobble. With falling interest rates is that there is a heightened fear of too low inflation. Let me let me put a definition on that. Why do we worry that inflation is too low because in the next recession is there will be one. At some point, we haven't repealed, the business cycle inflation will fall, if we start that recession with a one percent inflation rate, the fear is it will fall to deflation, which is very stressful on the financial services community. Very stressful on the banking system. And that's what the fed will pull out an all central banks, applaud all stops to prevent deflation in one of the ways they tried to do it is. Let's not start at a very low inflation rate. So I think what you're seeing in risk assets. His as interest rates go down and as. Risk assets. Fall classic risk off sentiment. That is worrying that we might start to see too low of inflation. I don't know if I'd go as far as deflation, but too low, and definitely not what you'd wanna start if we're going to have a downturn. So Jim to what extent do you think this Federal Reserve is influence by the market, there certainly been some concerns that, you know, the move in December, and the and the, the, the easing in, in the first part of the year where market influences that a real concern. Yeah, I think it is a concern, and I was going to answer the question that they seem to be reactionary. There was plenty of evidence going into that December rate hike, that the markets were unsettled by the idea of another rate hike. The markets were unsettled by automatic pilot with the balance sheet continuing to move lower and the fed pushed ahead with it anyway. And it kind of blew up in their face. Remember that the Dow Jones industrial average fell six hundred points during the one hour. Our of J Paul's December press conference. And then two weeks later, he did what we know if you call the pope, if it, we said, okay, forget, everything I said, under Semper nineteenth. Here's the new scenario. We're not going to be raising rates nearly as much and we're going to back off on the balance sheet. So I wish they would be a little bit more proactive in looking at what markets are telling them instead of reactive. Just we'll do what we'll do what the models in the academic say until the markets blow up, and then we'll just completely reverse ourselves. That's not a good way to run policy just quickly here. What, what's the next recession gonna look like? Is it going to be a repeat of two thousand eight if you can tell me if there's an over levered sector that could actually drag the economy down, then yeah, it could be. But I don't see that and I don't see that in the leverage loan space as well too. I think the thing that could really hurt this economy which is what I think the markets were signaling in the fall is higher interest rates as the old saying goes usually the fed Ray. Rates till something breaks while we got the three and a quarter on the ten year in the fall and all of a sudden the market seemed to get, you know, they didn't break, but they got really wobbly at that point as long as interest rates don't shoot higher. I think that this, if we have another recession Emma thing we will. But when we do it will be more of the garden variety, if it comes on the back of spiking inflation, and driving up interest rates with all the debt, we have that could be problematic. But like I said the problem those too low inflation, not too high. Inflation, Jim Bianco, thank you so much for being with us. Jim Bianco president, and founder of Bianco research, also a contributor to Bloomberg opinion. In March of this year and upstart mobile phone manufacturer entered the market with what it bills as he state of the art mobile handsets, and wireless connectivity, at an unbeatable value. And we took a look at the phone. It is very cool to help us walk us through this story. John Paul Di Gioia jump co founder and CEO of our okay group. Also, the CEO, cofounder Paul Mitchell, and patrolled spirits. I believe patrol the Bacardi in two thousand eighteen four five point one billion dollars or something the that was evaluated relations on that trader jump hall. Thanks so much for joining us, you walk date and you showed us this phone, and what Lisa amaze Leeson? I was there's three D stuff and we weren't watching. We didn't have glasses on. Yeah. It's three D with glasses at ten the logical breakthrough and it's a rocket phone like a rocket ship going. The moon are okay, IT rocket phone, and it's very, very advanced, though the phone has dual SIMS it has its own blocked for the world which is kind of cool wifi comes within a year's worth of telemedicine. Plus, other little bundles, we have, I think would really blows people away, as Donnelley's advance into cameras, regular Cameron three D camera. But blows people away is the price, especially the retailers here in the United States, and the consumers, we wanted to have a little bit of profit, not a lot began them out there. The price on the phone is our big one is only two hundred ninety nine dollars in our normal one, which is what most won't smartphones are is one hundred ninety nine dollars. That's the retail price, and that comes with the three D And everything and you don't have to be attached. Any carrier you go with any carrier you want any plan, you on because remember, it's worldwide WI fi. See can make calls all over the world free, you know, positive, he was struck by the phone. I was struck by John Paul jewelry at your enthusiasm for it, and the sparkle and just sort of your energy, given back and into what was interesting to me, is it explains how you one point. We're homeless and ended up co founding Paul Mitchell, screened and patrolled spirits. And now you've moved into. Phones, and, and sort of the energy that sort of drove that I'm just wondering here, your focus on content is very interesting because a lot of other big cellphone companies in tech companies have been trying to move into the media space. How did you do it here? We'll wind up with this great technology of three d that actually works on a smartphone, that actually will work people have tried to before digman crosses. Good. It came cross really great. So once we had that, and we started tying up exclusives on content. We were in -ticipant in this would work. So we went to studios and think of it. If you have a three D movie is in the theater, or I max, but after it's there sits on the shelf, because there's no other format to put it on. Well, so we took it off the shelf gave them some money for it. Of course, paid you some nice money for it. Then got the exclusive on it for the next three to five years for these various things. So it all kind of was in harmony. We're so excited. I know that it was unbelievable. Like, for example, take WalMart who star. Getting to launch June seventeenth in their stores, right behind that his Costco, many others, but WalMart could up was hard to believe. They sent a team over to Asia to check out whether made how perfectly they were made they were exactly as we said with the capacity to make a lot. And they said, yeah, this is great. So right now, the only place you get it now would be either on WalMart's website or go to rocket are. Okay. I t dot com. The Tottenham at the pricing, a bit, the, the handset pricing, you mentioned how about some of the packages of surrounding it. If I want to get these three D movies, and maybe the telemedicine and all that kind of stuff. How are you guys packaging that? Yeah. We have these unbelievable bundles the best ways to tell your audience in yourself. Specially small businesses that can't afford insurance life insurance or health insurance for their staff are most expensive bundled. You put on any smartphone, by the way is only fourteen dollars and ninety five cents a month. But here's what happens to a small business for fourteen dollars and ninety five cents a month per family or per phone. The whole family uses it, you have one hundred thousand dollars worth of accidental life insurance twenty thousand dollars for the burial insurance. So the beneficiary get some money, telemedicine seven days a week, twenty four hours a day, a doctors on the phone with you, diagnosing you and Ryan you a prescription necessary in sending it down or saying, hey, you're the twenty percent to go. See go see a regular doctor emergency immediately, and then roadside assistance, similar to a triple A, and then a legal advice. A thousand ours with the legal advice and the great thing for cities and business people is one hour, a week of a therapist on the phone with you. That's our big bundle. That's our fourteen dollars for four dollars. Fight ours other little bundles, but that gives you an idea so we want to change the game and make affordable for everybody insurance and things of that nature. There are a lot of aspects to this, you sort of, at the epicenter of a lot of the revolutions that are going on right now. One of them people talk about is the slowdown in the smartphone market. And I'm wondering you know, how you're sort of fitting in their understand that your, your product is different, but not only is a slowdown in demand, but they're also are pressures when it comes to trade tensions and supply chains. One hundred percent correct on these particular phones will makes the differences. We put an entire family's lifestyle or a good portion of it in the phone. We're onto that phone. You have your insurance. Have your roadside assistance. You have a therapist. You have emergency medical things dodger on the phone. So the big chair. Changes and people say, oh, my God. This, this does five or ten things for me in a very low cost in your rocket phone just, you know, pretty incredible. So we're a whole different avenues. We thought years ago, what we need to step up so that we can compete and give the public something that don't have right now. And we have the pen, by the way, I'm bundling on Salvaterra phones, twenty seconds. Do you sell anyone's data to collect it shooting diesel anyone's data that you collect? No, we don't take like anybody's data nor do we sell them. The data by the way, most of the parts are not made in China, they're made another place, especially the United States, ship there and China wants to distribute our phones, because they can't get the content. I asked that just simply because if everybody's talking to their therapist on the phone, you know, they might be worried about no no, no. No, no. We don't anything we collect up. We're, we're all about peace. Love and happiness, is like the culture all the Paul Mitchell schools are peace. Love and happiness. As the hairstyle Saudi peace love app is in your life. One of them is that you don't have to be afraid of any be listening entered or tampering with your freedom, and privacy, and our great country. John Juliette, thank you so much for being here.

Hurry up offer expires Friday. Okay. So attorney general William Barr had quite the day on Wednesday William bar for those of you living under a rock testified yesterday in front of Senate Judiciary committee about the Robert Muller report Mueller Mueller Muller on capitol who cares on Capitol Hill. He had such a bad time during the questioning that he has decided he's not going back today. Even though he was scheduled to he said, nah, I'm good. You guys can go. Fuck yourselves not going back. I'm not flying down here anymore Wednesday sucked and not doing it because they think it's an intramural activity. Just he's not gonna go the attorney general. He said fuck the hot hot tubs too hot not find on tomorrow, whatever. So basically this hearing was a lot like any contentious judiciary committee hearing and a lot like the cavenaugh hearing once it was cavenaugh. They're not the potential victim the victim. But when that because the Democrats were grilling. The shit out of old Bill bar and Senate Judiciary committee, chairman Wednesay Graham was very disappointed in the way. They'll barring intruded not happy at all with. Yeah. Lindsey Graham is just like he's offended by anything anything. He's he does not like he defends that conservative tardy. Like, I I would like Lindsey Graham though, too like. If I was giving award like to announce me, he's really passionate. Oh, yes. I'd like to be there like fighting with my girlfriend. He's on my side. You know, for sure exactly. Yeah. Really good auction ear. Great auction just having someone there. Well, you're fighting with your girlfriend, Lindsey Graham or not is my dream 'cause 'cause like she's creek. Definitely definitely not the person. That's not your girlfriend or used dream though. Sounds like a shitty come on Lindsay. Yeah. That sounds like. Basically attorney general William Barr had to answer for the molar report. His also for his four-page summary of the mullahs report that he wrote and then released to the public prior to the full reporting released talked about like a month ago. And also as why he and Muller didn't come to the conclusion that President Donald Trump committed crimes related to obstruction of Justice and the biggest ambiguity around not being exempt, but also not committing a crime for obstruction of Justice and shit like that. So let me tell you unlike the supreme court slash globetrotter team member Brett Kavanagh's hearing, William Bara kept his cool kept this Quanta hilarious condescending, how do you do it? He was he was real smooth. Like like asking me a question. Hey, mark. Would you have for dinner tonight? What was your question is talking about what you had for dinner tonight? I don't understand what that has to do with this here. I just wanna know 'cause you look satisfy find tonight, well defined dinner. What does dinner have to third? That photo people. A lot of that. And then also just if the question was like, very direct and like he couldn't dance around. It was just a yes or no, yes. No. And oftentimes condescendingly like what they wanted to hear. But just like. Yeah. You're right Fluck, you that was basically his whole. We're talking about Bill Barnes. It's like the Bill Brask jokes one time Bill bar challenges. Challenged Obama to a cigarette smoke off and he beat him twenty five. Smoke the last fourteen, but he did it anyways. One time Bill bar looked directly in the eyes of democratic Senator and said, yeah, so which was all day. So the highlights of the hearing were democratic Senator from Hawaii maisy Horon told bar the United States citizens deserve better than him out of an attorney general and that he should resign. So he patted himself in the back of that was kind of meat and read that on his Facebook wall. That's kinda Meena her to say, she's just went for a big topic. She said that he just kind of hidden say he didn't responders like whatever. Big topic was about Muller writing bar a letter saying that bar completely fucked up and misled the public with four page summary letter of the four twenty four hundred twenty eight page report. And he basically said like, yo your summary, letters, not very accurate, and now everyone thinks that you know, the president's completely innocent. And just don't appreciate your letter. And I think it sucked and I wish he would release the report now to the public. So please do that. And it was just like this letter. Being like hate you. You suck boss. So they asked him a lot about that. And then Bill bar had a lot say about. He basically said, yeah, we're cool. I smooth it over with Muller talked on the phone. We talked about it. And to be honest, the letters a little bit a little bit snitty nitty. Snooty? Yeah. Something like that. He's a smart term that you wouldn't get because he's Bill by smarter Bill Maher's. Like, hey, you know, he works for me. Right. So I called him and I told him shop. And it's over now. Yeah. You don't you? You didn't want to be on the opposite end of the phone when I call them. Let's. An insult them. And he's not gonna be here to defend himself. So he said it was snippy. And then he said, I also think it was probably written by one of his staff people, which is just such a dig with these like intellectual lawyer guys because it was just all lawyer talk and the letter was clearly signed by Muller. So that was just him saying your your letter, not intelligently written. It didn't get what you wanted to cross an and you suck. So he just made fun of him for everyone else dig up, basically said. Basically said I believe it was written by one of his staff because the Bob Muller, I know is necessarily the little bitch. He would write some punk ass letter. Like that. And the also then Bill bar straddled up to that stand tilt those lefty journals. The owned Muller. He also said that when asked like, well, what if we subpoena mother would you problem with that? And he was like, no go ahead. I don't wanna be here. Go ahead and subpoena the guy you can questionably do that tomorrow. He's like, please. I think slots opening tomorrow. One last part for me was the that bar self admittedly likes to throw the term spying around. So I got brought up in the past like he accused Trump being spied on during the two thousand sixteen election. And we joked about like who isn't spied upon and then when asked about that. Here's a yeah. Talked about that. And they're like was spying term the attorney general's office professionally likes to throw around and he was like it. Sure shit as term I use frequently. I love I love to use the term spine throat around. So he just like he didn't give flow Senate for spying. Yeah. Exactly. I use espionage. Basically, basically bars a huge, huge Trump guy Muller couldn't find a smoking gun. And I just we all move on from this. There are literally democratic presidential debate starting a month from like next week in mid June early June. So that's that's a long guys starting to feel like a Bill Clinton. Getting dick suck type five for me. It's just getting dragged on by one side being petty over something stupid Clinton told someone open her mouth and Trump may have told a few people to shut their mouths in terms of don't testify against me. No big deal in either of these situations when you look at the big picture of running the United States of America as well as basically the rest of the world. So let's move on guys say the internet Donald J Trump had to say in all caps. No collusion. No obstruction. Besides how can you have obstruction? When not only was there. No collusion. And then imprint sees by Trump which has him, but the bad actions were done by the other side, what a fucking this is the greatest Khandjav in the history of American politics. You gotta get that third. Person in parentheses by Trump Trump that he thinks is the biggest job in the history of politics. Beg to differ, Donald. Okay. That's it. Let's move onto a lesson in click bait CNN, titled the story about the disbanding of two swath Mawr college frats that's in Pennsylvania as quote to swath more fraternities will disband after documents reveal references to rape attic and racist behavior. That's shock. That's a shocking story from fraternities from Pennsylvania. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Maybe not surprised, but they must have had an insane attic where they rape people. Right. I mean, that's what you call it. The rape outage. Will that's wrong? Actually, they had two documents that got leaked to the school newspaper's, basically, their frat, Google, docs, one of the documents was a one hundred seventeen page five side historical archive that included rape jokes racist tropes and crude descriptions of hazing among the pages of fraternity meeting minutes and. Scavenger hunt lists according to CNN I read through. It's like, you know, it's like this guy's a trip. He goes old so many beers aid so many edibles and then he fell asleep naked. And then like, I mean, there was also a reference to rupees in there which CNN did not catch because they're fake news. But I mean, it's basically exactly what you'd expect from a fraternity anyone go into rape battle. Was it labeled or? It was I in that says rape paddock this way. You're almost there. Keep going, right. I'm sure it was a real thing. This is where the rape attic. Come from the archive also included a reference to another fraternities, quote, Raziq and quote rape tunnel. But that fraternity delta upsilon denied that such things ever existed, of course, and called them. Call them terms quote, a sorry attempt at humor by a member of another swath more Greek organization. So yeah, it's just a joke about a different fraternity. What school should the school could shut this whole thing down by just changing the name of the rape paddock to the pregnancy. Attic. And no one's having sex in their point. Also changed the name of the rape tunnel to the birth canal. You know what I mean? Yeah. Well, that's I'm thinking one of those lines. I'm thinking like of the vampire facials take here. But rape, Tom rape tunnel. Could be the name of a loose. Sorority sister. Rape. But it's like it's like consensual, but they're just call the tunnel. I'm not sure if that would really make this matter when it really changes. Thing. Because she bangs everyone. Yeah. That would be okay. Okay. The Google doc. The Google doc leak to me isn't really a huge deal. I mean, there's no like substantiated crimes based on the documents that you think it would be over. But no the school suspended the frats last Wednesday. Then protesters showed up to the campus over the weekend. And after that, let him Collier's the Arctic. Don't know. They're all they were protesting, and they wanna turn the houses into safe spaces for progress against the return. Yeah. Looking into you know, what I mean? Look into a little bit more definitely start with the top of the house. You gotta check around real quick. I agree. I agree. I think that's what the school is going to do. But then these protests are showed up and then after the protesters showed up then the national headquarters decided to cut bait on both chapters and just shut them both down until someone comes out and says they were raped in the rape attic. That's big nothing. See we don't even have an attic. Right. And this is rape. I mean, this is Sarah. She's our friend. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, it's just I think the lesson ears just like peacful, you share Google docs, anyways. But again with Google docs, will like if you could get into my Google, docs, heart factors, Google docs. Oh, only sent us to. Like we acute it has being pitches. I smoked dmt T on air writing jokes. Yeah. You break all these rules men. Yeah. We get it. Your danger? Yeah. Man, dangerous your danger to keep you on the edge. Can't say it's not exciting. Yes. You do. Yes. You do. All right. We'll take it to the internet run. A lot five size says on Facebook quote. This is the national headquarters we were appalled and disgusted by the content in these minutes, which led us to question our -ffiliated with an organization whose former members could write such heinous statements. We cannot in good conscious be members of an organization with such a painful history, unquote. Yeah. So that's there. I'd like them to find. Nobody got raped. There's no confirmed rapes this is why CNN is overblown headline. Yeah. Well, I like them to find some proof. There's nothing funny about college. Rape happens a lot. But yes, I agree. And I hope I'm not saying I don't what I'm saying. Here's there's nothing that just as token, Google, doc, right? I hope it's a job Google dot to if it comes out that it's real or whatever then that's terrible. But in this case, this is a bunch of click because his wife fraternities. Should not have Google docs? Have you guys heard of the impossible burger? Yes. Yeah. No today. Yes. What do you got dial up internet? Oh, well, look guys. The apostle burgers the burger that's sweeping the nation Beatle mania style. And the reason they call it. The impossible burger is because it's impossible that it's not a real hamburger. What the fuck Isetan? Oh, it's a it's a plant based burger alternative. Just soy, Patty. Yeah. These things are selling faster than hamburgers at a ballgame. Or the only two options are plant based burger alternative and regular hamburgers. Get. Yeah. Impossible boats. Think about it. So what what makes this thing so spirit yet impossible foods, the maker of the impossible Berger said there is so much demand for their product that they are struggling to keep up. And this is after the company announced it would be expanding its partnership with a restaurant. Ironically, called Burger King further doesn't necessarily signify meat. I think it does. If you're the Burger King you say hamburger does shares its ham. But just burger burger no apparently these burger kings did a little experiment their restaurants in Saint Louis, and it went so well that they've elected a nationwide roll out to all seventy three hundred stores which sets way too many burger kings. Yeah. A lot of kings. I'm surprised that did well in Saint Louis seems like a meeting town. There's there's a farms burger democracy. Those people in Saint Louis, literally still think it's a hamburger. There's that's God. Damn good impossible. Hamburger. A little strange the people of Saint Louis going for non meat. But anyway, they don't know look before you guys take the word for it that this burgers, great. I've eaten at Burger King before and as weird as it sounds that they chose a burger alternative over their actual burgers. Dress me Burger King burger suck checking stuff in the fries of the Italian sandwiches made you think so. Yes, tied seventy three hundred chances the impossible, burgers, pretty damn good. I've had a few times. So why is it that impossible foods is having to add a third shift in their Oakland California base manufacturing facility? And why is it that this alt- burger is so different? Well, Mark on unlike veggie, burgers impossible burger patties are designed to mimic the look and texture of meat when cooked the fucking point of all these guys damn burgers. Yeah. No. I can't believe it. I have to be honest with you guys. I thought I would never thought I would never see the day. Sounds like the nailed what they were trying to do maybe. But but you got to think about Mark did you ever think that America choose? A meatless option over a meat burger. No, not minor. I mean, it's funny that you mention that because aliens had been fucking us in our sleeps. Well, that kind of maybe bring maybe it's changing I might have about this modest proposal aliens. If you will the reason this seems so unbelievable is because it is because it's not happening because the reason the impossible burger tastes, so good in my opinion in my theory because it's made of people. That's ridiculous. You know, it's the only possible explanation. You think about it? The veggie burger has concurrently been around and sucked for thirty seven years. And then all of a sudden out of nowhere meatless burger comes along that it's appetizing to people other than pacifists. There's no chance with you on this. It just a coincidence the place they make the impossible burger happens to be in the bay area, which also boasts one of the highest numbers of open missing persons cases in the country and UFO sightings. So I'm with you one hundred percent, your how are you trying to work your theory? And we'll you're saying these vegetarian aliens or making. Taste change because they're fucking us or they're you're saying that there. Yeah. Well, and they're making you wanna eat people in out of the impossible with their vegetarian alien genitals. Fewer people are just ridiculous. I'm with I'm with. West do you know, what soil lamb global says? No, I don't either meant sounds like an anagram about an anagram him. Yeah. What about him? Nobody. These are Tiv isn't that like Latin people freaking out about these Burr? Yeah. That is bro globe. People frigging burgers because everyone knows human flesh addictive and they're hooked at the burger taste good. And we get rid of some of the population control problems. I'm all for the impossible. But let's take it to the internet them up baby. Some poor soul. Sounds like somebody's been fucked by alien asleep. Whatever hope he has those yesterday show. Adrian Wallace says why not roller right out roll it out nationwide. This burger literally sells itself because it's so delicious. Yeah. Alien. Alien. He's definitely alien Adrian doesn't even know it's made a human flesh not buying. Yeah. This company slogan is it's not humanly possible, it's not human. Not killing Hume. So they get around perspective. I want to try. But there's no way tastes as good as but it's good good. I'm glad it's good. All right. Moving onto lightning around some stories. Didn't cover. Uable lightning bolt goal. So Moby has written a book. Thank God of been waiting years to read a book written by Moby almost as badly as I've been waiting three to book written by my eight year old. So basically is not at all at the singer Moby artist Moby, the bald bald guy if your son wrote a book, you wouldn't read it. Oh, of course, read it. But I know it wouldn't be good. He's usually hated no way impressed run a book eight he read me like a paragraph story. The other day was terrible. So most about it was about the some poop poop pants some ships. Anyway, I choose gives a fuck anyway in that book, he reveals many things including that he allegedly may have banked Natalie Portman and Christina Ricci. So those are obviously complete weirdos. Not on the belt for Moby, those two those two are not crave. A real man in bed. If that's true got to tell you wearing glasses. Why would you rate that in the book was he did he think that the book was the Howard Martin show under market you had sex with Natalie, permanent, Christina? You would write it everywhere. Yeah. I'd read in my forty right at every time got pen in your hands. True borrow pen. Yeah. But also in that book, he reveals that he wants rubbed his penis on now President Donald Trump at a party. So as the story goes was at a high class party with much businessman that Trump was also attending and apparently him and his friends like the play game called a knob touch. We'd hold on. It sounds very British. They didn't call it. They didn't call the game Moby, Dick. No, they're not all name Lobi. And they're not sucking Moby. Dick, all the time. I would hope if the entire front group was named Moby than you're you're right. That's a huge missed opportunity. Moby? What are you doing later? I dunno Moby if it's only game he plays. Yes. Mr between. But anyway, so this game knob touch is when you are movies. Probably the only guy that gets challenge. It's when you're dared to take your penis out of your pants. Never play. Always it. Let's play it exactly movies. Like, hey, do not touch again. So it's trying to say take your pants and put it on someone without them. Knowing about them knowing take your flaccid, dick. Cout and just you know, touch some of so so one of his palace. Trump standing a few yards away. He turned to Moby and said knob, touch which point Moby who claims to be fifteen years sober now took a shot of pulled out his penis and walked by Trump grazing, his his penis on his jacket and success. Interesting. I guess we'll take dot. It's ridiculous. Okay. Tomaso in Texas. Some asshole in Texas has something bees. And is scorching there hives, perhaps it's the same guy. Who's dog was killed by them in Florida? Yeah. Hope it is that guy. There's a lot of stories out there have dogs being killed by bees fuel Google. Yeah. If you if you want to at any rate, those bees are getting desperate, man. They're about to be extinct. Got got. It would be bad. If they did if you keep killing our dogs, and we're gonna burn to extinction ground, you know, going to the ground to be able to Ponant shit. I don't know. I would what's. Well, what's fewer dogs or more Bs fuck that we can have you not seen black mirror. We can self pollinate plants, and we can make flowers we can make Honey go because everything on black males for sure never been stung by guy that believes in the visible aliens. Any rate the environmental tragedy was discovered in Alvin Texas to south the Houston as a twenty four colonies of bees, roughly six hundred thousand of them were found scorched and thirties are now offering a five thousand dollars award to catch this dog lover who clearly lives close by and his sick of all the bees around. I mean, either that it's the guy in the B suit that just collecting on insurance of be deaths. Why didn't these what these bees fly away because they're loyal? I feel you. Yeah. They gotta stay close. Fly. You should never be killed by fire, as my personal opinion. Right. Sean never sleep apparently in your home, that's encased in a hive. And then right because a madman will burn it down. They're all in there when that's as well when you fly, no one got the fire. The fire spread the speed of light. I'm sure it happened overnight now just asleep, and you die when you wanna kill a flying insect high of you killed at night. That's what that's what you do. Absolutely. So so we'll see what happens if they can find the moving on a cruise ship named free winds, which is owned by the church of Scientology and carrying three hundred idiots who believe in science algae has been quarantined in Saint Lucia since Monday after another confirmed case of measles was attempted on board the ship. So I I stop St Lucia second stop outer space. I've got this is this is this is a scheme is this game. You got to get to like the fifteenth level. And then all of a sudden the master produce for measles in your pay. Twenty grand measles are gone west gets game. But you telling me that that Scientology cats are also anti vaccine. Maybe I'm gonna leave it. Yeah. The ven diagrams of circles, say one circle. Cure everything with money, Pat. Hell over the cruise ship. Okay. So no one was allowed to get off in Saint Lucia, obviously. And a scientologist told they can't do something, right? Higher level. Scientologists people don't respect. However, the cruise ship is scheduled to leave Saint Lucia at midnight tonight and return home and likely be quarantined again by US officials. Hopefully, but I'm sure they can find a cure for measles as we'll said on the way back. I'm sorry. You can't not suck dick. But I don't want us to stick. Sorry effort effort were stories this week than three hundred Scientologists dying at sea yet. No shit. Jeez. My west on sorry. Finally, we have a real live hero in our hands in Riley Howley student at UNC Charlotte who ran towards the micro peanuts man as he entered his classroom. Hell bent on killing everyone in there as Riley ran towards the gunman. He was shot point blank. He was able to knock the shooter off his feet which help police arrest him. And apparently, this is what law enforcement is now recommending you do in this. Kind of close quarter active shooter situations, which is which is tax them and trying to hide behind a desk. And then get shot while you're hunkered behind a desk. Also, read that Riley is definitely fucking hero. Yeah. He gave his life undoubtedly save people saved like half the classroom. There's thirty people in there. I think hats off right away work from rally. Sad story. Yeah. Just showed up to learn men. And that's hard Thakur this week. Maybe we have fifty six reviews as of now. So that's about a fifty fifty shot, and whether or not we will be bringing you a Friday episode of all Florida, man. So you know, what to do? Hopefully, we'll talk to you again tomorrow of not have a great fucking day. And enjoy the derby.

HARD FACTOR 4/8: DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen Resigns, Happy News from Africa, and a Pennsylvania Man's Meth-Fueled Maxi-Pad Raid

"Wooded you Joe, man. Randy savage this factor in the risk. No one that does better. Now, does it better repeat myself? Go ahead told me something right now. Moderate. Welcome to another episode of heart backer. It is Monday, April eighth and Kate is joining us today while Mark is living his best life into Hiti. What's up? Kate not much love in Austin, Texas. It's great to be down here in the creepiest garage and the city. If you think this is the creepiest Russian, not the creepiest grow. Oh, I don't know. It's it's pretty close. I could see it on my Skype feed. It. Right. It's got a vibe about still we're gonna fill. It was smoke. Just in case honor. Our top stories for the day. Pat is going to take one about the department of homeland security secretary Kristen Nielsen resigning effective immediately. Yeah. If in fact that is even her real name interesting, a west going to do a double feature from Africa, the hostage in Uganda was found in a poacher was killed by animals. Pretty much sums it up. But I'll give you a little more information. I'm excited for the details. The details the details. Yes. Kate is going to tell us about a man in Pennsylvania woke up to another man passed out on his kitchen floor. Yeah. It's the story of periods and methamphetamine, stay tuned. Wow. Hot stuff. Yeah. Lost some listeners. Right. And I'll take their lightning round of other headlines. Take it away. Pat, aren't guys should the Trump administration has lost yet another member via the devastating resignation epidemic. That's been pleasing Donald since the early weeks of his term in office. It's unclear exactly what's causing these resignations. But we do know the majority of the effected experienced symptoms of moral remorse and concerns about future employment before they in fact resigned and nobody's smart enough. That's the problem. Nobody's far enough to work with the Donald. Van perfection. I mean. That's why he's a winner like me and my girlfriends the huge pedestal that no one can live up to. I did not see sign of any women here. Exactly. Okay. All the best Boston. Leave because they put their just demanding the excellence, that's it works. Well, look this month's resignation is curse shreve. Nielsen. The secretary of homeland security and for the remainder of the store I'm gonna refer to her only by her last name because her first name is spelled K R S T J E N, and literally not even her own parents know, how to pronounce it Cajun Caucasian continents. Silence june. That's like the most Nordic name possible. It's yet. Jays. I don't like that. I wanted American working for us and homeland security. You know, what I mean Nielsen has become the face of Trump's war on immigration and her departure was announced by the Donald on Sunday afternoon. Be the fourth most important social media platform, and he said, quote, it was a tweet secretary of homeland security Kirsten Nielsen will be leaving her position. And I would like to thank her for her service yet Nielsen's position will be filled by Kevin Mika leeann the current US customs and border protection. Commissioner McLean is a holdover from the Obama administration. I was really hoping he was going to bring in the rock John sina for to be in charge of the border. You know, like he actually wanted to get something done. It would have done that. Branding to like. All right. I'm gonna steal all this money on the deck, the national merged declaration, but I'm going to put the rocker, John CENA and charge like that could really spin this. They're both busy with wrestlemainia this weekend. So it's true. Anyway, look. Nielsen's departure was apparently unexpected guys. She was scheduled to have a meeting with Donald at five pm on Sunday to discuss a new immigration agenda. And if that meeting didn't fact happen it went south very quickly because Trump's tweet announcing her departure was time stamped at five. Oh, two PM. So two minutes after the meeting presumably began which is actually surprising because after reviewing countless and countless hours of Donald on tape, filming the apprentice, it takes an average of one point eight seconds to say, you're fired. So my question is what happened during the other one hundred eighteen seconds. Maybe we will never know tuna tackle exposing as probably doing meeting meeting on Sunday five pm is very inconvenient. Yeah. Yeah. But like a two minute meeting and also how long it took him like a minute. Have to compose that tweet she was late. She's she's fine. Do you think it was a forced resignation? I mean, she's got a lot of reasons to want to leave. I'm sure it wasn't a force regulation. She knew she had said she was going to leave. And she like no one's happy with her. So, you know, look, let's look at what happened because Trump is pissed about how things are going US Mexico border. There's been an influx migrants from Central America. One reports at one hundred thousand migrants came over and March alone making it the highest month since two thousand eight a lot to lot of migrants. And look it's not just Donald is unhappy with Nielsen's performance democrat Bennie Thompson, who's the house? Homeland security chairman said quote, hampered by misstep after misstep crystalline Nielsen's tenure what was that? Was that a misstep now's missed up? No. It wasn't my cadence might have been strange, but the word was pronounced properly hampered by misstep after misstep Nielsen's tenure at the department of homeland security was a disaster from the start. It is clear now than ever that the Trump administration's border security immigration policies that she and acted and helped craft have been an abysmal failure and helped create the humanitarian crisis at the water. So the Dem's or mad to she was essentially in an unwinnable position. And it's going to see how things play out at the border and the coming months, and will I really hope at the rock or Jones get down there. I think Steven Seagal once ago. No. But I think that's would be Trump's pick. He needs fans on constantly. It would be a tough place for might be able to flood it with his sweat and create. That's about it. Say it's real quick out. Coluna says closed the damn border. Exactly how he said it David Marin says book by Aaron bigot. Yeah. Any of those words found that for me? Found that for me. Can you explain that other reason I like it I like that one? Because like he he's referring doors an area in which in this case is probably a racist term. It's a negative. He's about a race. And then he's calling her a bit, which is Larry. So it's. It's a it's called conundrum or paradox. Like a stepping in. Anyway, that's my story. I'm just honestly envisioning Steven Seagal just like fake throwing. Quarter running all running. About his martial arts Kito, which which is which exclusively at defense impartial. Art. So he's kind of the perfect guy to be at the border defend the board tossing across the border. Great. All right moving on the Steven Seagal training Akito video. I've watched it many many times, it's the best. And he sits down like, you actually did something crazy people that let him do that or more insane than he is. I think all right so moving on shocking news out of Africa, the elite police came through somehow must have been just sheer luck or lots of money, but they have rescued the American woman, Kimberly, sue Endicott and her driver Jean Paul Maringe Ramez, oh who were both kidnapped at gunpoint last week while on safari and held for ransom while the driver wasn't really held for ransom. Pretty sure it will be found out to be an accomplice Kate, but but Kim Kim was held ransom and five hundred thousand dollars. If you remember so secretary of state, Mike Pompeo weighed in on this ordeal last week, giving the family absolutely no hope saying, quote, please remember the payment to a terrorist or a terrorist regime gives money so that they can seize more of our people even a small payment to a group in say Africa can facilitate the killing or. Tens or even hundreds of others, including Americans or for nationals in that region. So that's that's the that's the US's stance on open the floodgates shit with terrorists, we're not park terrorists. What we do. And you know, they definitely do. But it just depends on who you are which Kim's cousin Keith Endicott who is a like a skincare owner in California says, quote, I heard our secretary of state get on there and say, we don't pay ransom. Okay. Fine. Then get the navy seals get them on a plane and go saver don't pay ransom. I'm good with that. But he didn't say any of those things maybe they're doing those things. But who knows? So sounds really confused experts from California skin specialists who write has finger on the pulse of these types of. Yeah. Because that's a good use of the seals. They got nothing else going on send them in. Why would they go? They wouldn't do that. They would they would if it was the right person for sure they would send the seals. Well, this woman must be fucking rich. If she was on some sort of safari with the driver, I dunno at her solo safari. I mean, it's probably pretty expensive. So anyway, eventually FBI got involved the big guns brought out helicopters all kinds of shit, and it appears some kind of ransom was indeed paid. But right now, we do not know who paid or how much was paid Ugandan official. Tourist officials want everyone to know that this was an isolated incident, and you should feel completely safe out in the middle of nowhere on safari and Uganda with an unarmed guide who probably sold you out. Least you got to. Hopefully, she got to see a draft before being stuffed in a trunk too much. Still had fun. I've been to Uganda bunch of times oddly. Yeah. Just because my parents worked in the aids issue. So I've been over to Africa times Uganda's fucking awesome stuff. They're the best juices. There is like the fruit grows like says, she probably just got hammered, and then like these amazing juice mixers after she got found. It was probably still great experience that what you did. Well. I did everything she did minus the kidnapping part. So I've I can imagine if you throw in a kidnapping, and they're still still would've had a good time. Maybe she got stuff in the trunk of an elephant. Great, great, great, juice. All right. So more wide birth more news from Africa. And what has to be one of the worst ways to go a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant. And then devoured by lions in Kruger National Park, which is probably the only national park that that that ninety percent of people can name including myself. Anyone can anyone naming Nash park besides wheel who currently loves to go to Africa and drink juice, every time I've ever have you ever been in this place in there? The local produce. I actually when he was like I've been to Ghana bunch. Okay. I thought it was joke. But he's now for real so many. So many. Wow. We'll we'll hanging out in that delta lounge all day. Four fifty dollars, and you never have to buy a drink for the whole year because for moose. It's a great deal. Yeah. So so what happened is four pieces of shit entered the park with the intention to kill rhinos. When elephants said not on my turf and suddenly attacked the group killing the man by trampling him, his good poacher buddies. Then who who certainly didn't want to get caught. Then carried his body to the side of the road where they figured a car would spot it. But instead of pride of lions spotted at first and made a meal of him. In a statement from the park, quote, indications indications found at the scene suggests that a pride of lions had devoured the remains leaving only human skull and a pair of pants. So they they ate him. He wasn't got rhino got murdered by elephant. And then eaten by lions after his friends ditch on the side of the road. I like a nice enough to not eat the pants. They knew those were like really nice Ed Hardee's, and they're like, no, no leave those for the family. They left his teeth to be by dented by. Yeah. They were thoughtful about favorite part about this guy is the way he looks his picture. He looks like the bad guy from every movie ever taken place in the judge. Like. Which is so many movies. You got the Congo. Gorillas in the middle Jurassic Park part or all of them, and then like Kong's all of guy. All all of them. Yeah. All right. The the internet Indiana Jones's Gail math release says and then the lions pooped him, and he was rolled up little balls by dung beetles, aren't dunk Beatles. Great. Classic ale. Beatles are pretty cool to look I mean, they they're hard workers. So yeah, for sure Scott quite imagination that kill. And then she'll Bristow spark says, I always wanted to go on safari, and friend asked me, why don't go and I said because I'm afraid of kidnapped tied up and help ransom. Isn't that? A Tom petty song LL, then she tagged a friend, Brad. Yeah. I love that Tom petty album kidnapped an Africa. It's probably my probably the one I keep on heavy rotation to Paul Simon nursing. Oh, pardon me. That's what it is. Strong yet. Yeah. So Pennsylvania homeowner told tuna police that all of his doors and windows were locked when he went to sleep. But the next morning he noticed one of his doors wide open. Sure. He's a liar. He's alive. He's full of shit. Yeah. Oh. Doors interest. Well, he may have been true because. Lock the door your meeting answer. No matter what you did. Yeah. Yeah. Turned off the iron locked all the doors. Well, whether he locked doors or not that next morning. He found sixty year old Brian Smith unconscious on his kitchen floor. So by torn up sanitary napkins and guys for the record. These sanitary. Napkins are not the wet wipes us after hot wings. We're talking about the pads us ladies us on her periods. Sigli or sixteen six six sixty six zero six. Yeah. Ladies lived in the house. I I don't know won't be weird. They don't mention any women in the story. So maybe this. They're both super weirdos. Got him. Can find lady her back to the house moves in? And then she has her period. I'm going to be prepared. She's going to be so impressive my pad collection. Yeah. The homeowner told police it also appeared someone had eaten some of his crave brands cereal. Police noted that the ruined it's a great. Oh my God. It's like little crispy pockets of chocolate dessert for breakfast. So good. So I don't blame this guy who broken don't blame him great choice. But believe noted that the Ruehrmund feminine hygiene stuff is bad. But at least he didn't eat any of his receives puffs or captain crunch, berries, the important cereals, the cops say Smith admitted to using the amphetamine within the last two days and was unable to explain how or why he entered the house and more importantly why he chopped up and surrounded himself with a bunch of women's pads. He sends been charged with burglary and trespassing this is shocking. There was no attorney listed for him in court documents. We would have done good. Yeah. Doesn't have someone retainer. Oh, I was just trying to think like why you break into a house, you're super high on meth, you get your period, you eat a bunch of crave. Cereal. You're like how to eat on bunch of math. Usually when like, you know wanted to smoke six smoke sick. It must've been coming down because he passed out. You know last thing, I want milk. He's got a full belly. He wants to nestling on the floor. He needs a pillow. And he's like, well, I need one. I don't wanna wake up the homeowner. What's in the bathroom? He finds a bunch of pads. And ladies, if you're listening, you know, some of those things are bigger than like a my pillow. They're huge. So I can see the logic there sort of on Facebook, John Corry went links said in my house, we'd have awoken he'd have been awoken by my pistol pressed against his forehead what a Harto like nobody plays with my wife's pants with me in this house. Nobody talk about on your hand, you'll somebody with questions. Yeah. How'd you get in here? Locked all the doors. Windows were all locked. Everything's tricky. Son of a bitch. Gregory Vernon said, and it didn't happen. Police say didn't find the pants Gregory Vernon said and it didn't happen in Florida. Wow. Funny that he should say that because before the show started Pat said, Pennsylvania man is becoming the new Florida, man. Bold statement coming from a guy who grew up in jersey lost his cellphone cab last night and overflowed Wests toilet literally moments started recording. Yeah. This is pretty I walk inside inside. There's a bunch of a bunch of fucking water on my floor. I gotta take. That's secretly max. Like little. We had a little overflow overflow problem. What the fuck, man. This is water everywhere. Sorry. That's okay. You took care. It's still water on the silk that up with some pads, guess what? Yeah. Yeah. Dr shit water on your floor. Now, not what are you going to get them out though? Let's take it to the lightning round of other headlines. We couldn't get to. Lightning bolt. I up totally noncontroversial Republican California Representative Devon Nunez is sending eight criminal referrals to attorney general Bill bar regarding the mul- Mueller Muller muehler investigation team, the FBI and the DOJ five of the referrals are related to lying to congress misleading congress and leaking classified information, which is what they're alleging the investigation team did the other referrals are allegations of lying to the FIS accord that approves foreign surveillance warrants manipulating intelligence, and what he described as a global leak referral. So Bill Barton goes for this, which I heard Lindsey Graham saying that he might then we'll have an official investigation of the investigation, which think is running so well, obviously. Taxes, but if I did pissed. Esta Gatien inside investigation inside an investigation. Good. Yeah. I mean, I just don't understand like if you can you can investigate whatever you want. No matter what both sides could do it. No matter the cost like, what's. Yeah. It's a cluster. Fuck. Everyone's on double secret probation right now. Then you get their act together. Okay. Florida men Michael Casey Lewis was released on bond from jail last Thursday morning after being booked for grand theft. Once he made it to the jail parking lot directly out the front door. He decided it was time to get back in the game. He went around car hopping the entire lot of cars for those who don't know what car hoping will car hopping is when you go up to every door handle, and you jiggle unlocked, you steal shit inside the car, okay? Well, versed in that. Well. Had been around people who had done it as youth. Record. Oh, the cops. Of course, saw him on their surveillance camera went out and confronted him. And yet he handed over a Brown paper bag full of cash credit cards driver's licenses cigarettes and an iphone that he collected. Well, quote, waiting for his girlfriend to pick him up stealing driver's license. Anything if your girlfriend's coming to pick you up though, you need a gift you fucked up your jail, you need to have something. And you just got to tell you have nothing. So I don't blame them that. He couldn't wait to start stealing. Yeah. You know, that's a big problem. He's got a real big proper pro. You know, like when someone's like, I feel bad for him. It's a genuine problem. You might have an alcohol problem because he did something like this is the word potential serious kleptomaniac. He was in revoked for burglary and released again on another bond later, so hopefully, he made it out of the parking lot. Second time some personal news for me. Elizabeth Warren came through Reno and spoke to a crowd of what the local paper described as several dozen people. I didn't even realize that she was coming to town. So nice work Elizabeth Warren PR team. And instead I went to the canvas expo and the casino spot. So that was a good choice by me. I think excellent choice was the canvas expo during a spa expo as well. That sounds awesome. Amazing. They were next. So the casinos next door where the his expo was took quick trip to the expo show. Best day at the spa. Yeah. And then just moved over to the casino spot. Once you get done to this. Pot massage. We got I ordered my wife, and I we ordered a bottle champagne to the hot tub. Good drunk in the hot tub, then got him size salt room. They're skipping courts. I think you're skipping some parts going on what other parts which parts. Simulating you banged in the hot. Lots of throughout the weekend. But not in the spun. Anyways. Because. Kate you're in Austin. Hear your thoughts about Austin. I saw some guy fucking with you on Twitter about your assessment of the city. Yeah. It's my first time here. Absolutely loved it. Did all the touristy stuff. Went to see the bats under the bridge hiked mount bundle. Whatever that is. But went out blacked out a couple of times. So I have myself time skate for listeners Kate Ashton her own drink directly before the show. And I did before that who she's been hanging out with just destroyed west toilets seems like you guys are. Yeah. It's it's it's going great. Having a good time. This guy tweet it out Austin, Texas, pretty great. That was my tweet very simple. This guy at obviously Ahmad said LL Allston suck style. It's on the Sabo, San Francisco, great food cool music scene. And then overran by tech boys raising rent by thousands of dollars. But glad Coasties like yourself or happy visiting Kama. I guess question. Mark what a delightful now. I kind of agree with everything you just said though. Just keeps going we're all transplants ourselves. That's true. But we're, but we been here. Like ten years we pretty much Texas. We can talk shit, and we can Coasties before though. Yeah. I've never been like for living on the coast. I've never been like, oh, she's at coast. Eli. I've never got that before who hates hosts. Got a weird thing. Like the Trump administration middle America where I like to be. No, no scenes water for me waves, crashing dammit. Storms. Hope he salt water taffy. Yeah. Very strange. But yeah.

Hard Factor 5/5: Durham Strikes Back, Economy Struggles, Corona Mask Madness, Elon's World, and Nick Cage as Joe Exotic

"Would it is Joe Man Randy savage? This factor in there is no one that does it better now. Nobody does it better myself. Go ahead tell me something right down. Not a rate come to another episode apart factor presented by the Barstool News Network. It is day twenty twenty. That's Cinco de Maya guys didn't know that I don't know if you know. I got the tropical vibe going on over here on the Yucatan already. Oh yes it does. It's it's it's been looking forward to it. I mean if all Cinco two miles you can really house Mexican Beers. Infinitely this one. Because you don't have to go anywhere I've got to go order from local lined up for today. Yeah exactly I remember subscribing dot com slash art factor news to watch us do the show every day and night boys. Thanks for covering the murder. Hornets while I was away. That was a fun way to wake up on Monday. Kim Jong Moons having grow sex and murder. Hornets are killing everybody. Yeah thank all. The bad people are winning up. The sex is really in the eye of the beholder. The more the more evil you are in twenty twenty the better it is also make sure to check out the barstool comments show dropping every Friday. We're going to expand our search operation amongst the boys here to find the absolute best comments from the Barstool blog each week and we'll be producing that video for you every Friday It went pretty well last Friday. You guys talk about it yesterday. Yes apparently you didn't listen to the show all day. I I listened but sometimes you lose focus a little bit anyways. We've got politics economy space entertainment news and so much more today. I'm going to get US GOING SINCE I've been out. We've got making up to all right this first story. I'm calling republic pounce fellas you guys remember that thing. It was a big report. It was called the mute. Muehler Mueller Muller Mueller Muller Muller Muller ring a Bell anyways it was a big thing that ended up leading to nothing and then there was the impeachment afterwards. That didn't work which was kind of related. And then I said something about the time about the Durham report and like late last year. It was like hey dern reports can be in the works watch out for that well The Durham report is finally starting to emerge. And basically it's the Miller Miller muehler report in reverse the counter investigation to the Mueller Investigations. And Shit right like that. That ride the Shitty ride all exactly the Viking ship you go up. On one side and then the pendulum swings Durham investigation report. Durham Invest Ozone Dollywood over the summer. And I tried to bust my phone out to film some sweet content for the Graham and apparently that's no no because they stopped the whole fucking ride and then a man came and took my phone for me and the only yeah go ahead. Well Bats Michael Flynn. That's all we also put. Everyone loses their keys and phone. You're not supposed to have your fucking phone or keys out during the Viking rags hung through Doug Kung Fu grip. Well they should have told. Michael Flynn that before. They started the Mueller investigation. So the first domino to fall in this Durham thing appears to be the handling of General. Michael Flynn by the FBI during the investigation. The Durham team has uncovered F. B. I. Records on the Day of Flynn's interviewed interview for the Miller report saying quote. What's our goal truth or admission or to get him to lie so we can prosecute and get him fired question. Mark Quote obviously showing plan to entrap the general during the investigation which seems more like an interrogators job in a third world country not US FBI. Investigators that's where the issue lies essentially. Yeah I mean most interrogating jobs. That's the goal but you you don't WanNa know right that on paper you that on paper do you know a? We'll give some high level on this for those of us who don't exactly remember what flint did and all that stuff where you're going to get into so flynn got what. I guess prosecuted for perjuring himself thousand seventeen or something that right eight. Any perjured himself now. We know because he was basically forced into the perjury right. He was tricked into the perjury right. So when that's the case and that's supposed to be your law enforcement part of your DOJ doing that work. You might not be so happy about it. Like the attorney. General Bill Barr who says quote? My own view is that the evidence shows that we're not dealing with just mistakes sloppiness. There's something far more troubling here and we're going to get to the bottom of it. If people broke the law and we can establish that with the evidence they will be prosecuted unquote and he is the boss of everybody in the DOJ. So I'd be scared of him. Yeah past your back to your high level basically Michael Jordan is one of those guys like Manafort and those people are investigated for the Russian collusion thing. That turned out to be nothing He got dinged lying to the FBI. Perjuring himself and that's all he really got dinged for and it was. It was related to what he knew about his contact with Russia and he was fired because he was already fired by the trump administration and then the subpoenaed him or whatever. They interviewed him. They tricked him. They got him to lie. And they're like Ha. We're GONNA arrest you because we got dry and then he's like they're trying to get him to roll on trump. You know that he was just. It was part of the modern and Flynn trump's guy a comb it with Komi saying theoretically in trump trump or someone in the administration asked him ally is that. That's what happened. No No. That's not that's not crack about just that he he himself Perjured himself about a meeting. He attended OAKHAM. It was related to the Mueller investigation but turns out they were going after him to try to get into why the whole time. Which is the investigator according to Bill Bar? And he's the bus so we'll see who gets in trouble for that and we'll see if flynn gets What exonerated hardly process. Pardon direct future presidential candidate Nikki. Haley says she can't Republican ticket. Says she can't believe this happened in America and that somebody needs to pay like I said this is just the tip of the iceberg for the Durham stuff. Strap in Nikki. Haley will be saying that a lot more this summer. Another tip of the iceberg. We got to see recently new press secretary for President Trump. Kelly mcenaney Keighley's at Georgetown and Harvard Law Educated Person. Smart ager smoke show as well as a person That's not sexist. Just saying and has already had the unfortunate task of having to say that she does not think president trump lies and that she will never lie to the press on the podium which to the reporter that asked that question. Give me a fucking break for asked that question the first place to Kaley I say thank you for taking that Godforsaken job wishing you all the best in a unwinnable situation. That was our first. Li- sheet up not only does not live but she doesn't Fart. You know she's right exactly she doesn't break tough gig tough GIG for her. This this whole this whole pendulum swing on the Muller thing. It's also so far starting out as a big nothing which before everyone gets their pants and neither side we. There's really not much in in the Mueller report. There were no smoking. Guns big both ways. Big Nothing as well. I mean you're GONNA BE HEADLINED FOR THE FBI. And I'm investigating some day. I'm going to try to get them to fucking perjure himself. But it's it's partisan investigations as city. I understand why they draw. The Republicans had to deal with the Miller report for years. So they can go ahead with this bullshit. I can ship seven more real quick quick quick thought here and we'll pitch this to predict it. Do we think Kayleigh mckanie mckinney? Mckanie mckinney is GonNa make it harder name. Yeah well is GonNa make it through the year. Do we think that Kaley will make on twenty twenty one twenty three twenty twenty three the election. No hope so. No fucking yeah. I mean she's dropping in for the I think for the run for this campaign run. Yes I think so ilise. I'll take that action ready for the next one. Yeah yeah sorry. I'm Twenty Bucks Twenty Bucks for us guys. This segment is called. The economy might as well be surrounded by a bunch of murder wasps. Shocker doctors. Not good when you were going to say we're all GONNA get richer after no The US is surrounded Yes exactly surrounded like no escape the US is planning or would like to three trillion dollars for Q. Two Twenty twenty and that number is about five times larger than the previous record for Bar. We're GONNA quarter which happened back in the financial crisis of two thousand eight when everyone's got caught buying too many houses with no air paying for them and the banks all got bailed out right summed up nicely in the big short which is not breaking borrowing records. So apparently we're five times worse than the big short rate movie yet. Your writing great move. There are a lot more factors that go into the global economy than just borrowing. We're probably actually more like a thousand times worse off than two thousand eight. I'm telling you I think two thousand eighteen tax filings might get canceled the sheer so. Keep your eye out for that and you know what else has cancelled every major retailer in the US That doesn't have an enormous online sales ratio J. crew which allowed him going bankrupt. Yeah Oh yeah. Jae crowder now. Still store bankrupt yet. Bankruptcy Gold's gym filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy as well. You can't use their gym equipment remotely. Not good for them. They think they might be able to get out of bankruptcy by August first because apparently they're under the impression things are gonna be fine and gyms will be open from now on forever. So yeah okay. Sure but over. Forty five hundred. Gold's GYM MEMBERS OF EMPLOYEES. Have been furloughed or like. Oh so that sucks. I gather the money that they were charging really fucking. They'd go in person to file their bankruptcy filing. I really hope they'd like go. There partially fucking do it because those bastards will not let you out of a fucking membership now go no go bro. All is easy. The gyms. Yeah Yeah but I I. You're missing the point. I feel bad for the forty. Five hundred plus employees. Not that don't have a job anymore. They make you do the Walker. Shame when you want to cancel a gym membership they make you. They bring assistance the hottest chick until I have to walk with her in front of her. Why do you think you think you're good enough shape? Our gyms our one hundred percent peer pressure because that is the business model department stores That still exists for some reason. The two thousand twenty or not doing well either. Jc PENNEY MR debt payment and probably IS GOING TO COLLECT FOR BANKRUPTCY SOON. And everyone's rich everyone's rich aunt's favourite stores. Wells Ivanka. Trump's Neiman. Marcus is close to filing bankruptcy Do you think the brain trust Amazon had global pandemic on their list of reasons why their business model was so much more sustainable than brick and mortar chennault. But not only that. Not only that but Amazon's reaction I mean bezos is. Look into the future you can tell because we. He has already manipulated where his staff that can stay at home will stay at home. He's increasing making the factories safer. Because he's just planning for this like really Amazon's GonNa get the rich richer much richer. The barrel of is a is an anti-trust cases. What he's looking at talk to Bill Gates about that eventually. The sci-fi movie has like eight billion drones are going to handle that for him also making the moonlit. We'll get into. Yeah exactly I mean. I think it was just. All people are lazy and hate doing things in traffic. We can automate delivery with less overhead eventually in robots. Don't ask for pensions. I think that was on their list. I don't think global pandemic but they might be that good. They might have fucking this coming berkshire-hathaway CEO in one of the great financial geniuses of our time. Warren Buffet told investors at Berkshire Hathaway hathaway's annual meeting on Monday that he dumped all of his personal stocks in every major airline company and does not see any reason to invest in any major new endeavor. Anytime soon. Yeah you know especially with. There's some things out of this lockdown that are gonNA continue. I think a lot of the people learning how to enjoy things that don't necessarily cause require a ton of gas is something that may not you think right itself like right away or wherever who knows my ten day. Caribbean cruise in July image allies in jeopardy. Not Not happening. But I'll tell you what CD's Asshole Warren Buffet's GonNa ask all over his face when bitcoin halves in May because he's one of the he's one of the biggest haters on Bitcoin so anyways but it's bad he doesn't know shit about anything or perhaps it's really bad for people that have like the Invest in index stocks like S. and P. Five hundred as opposed to individual stocks like David Trader Index stocks. Not Not looking good. When buffets saying don't invest in anything I mean he's a he's eighty nine though basically saying fade the market right now especially the airlines forever. Yeah especially those He's eighty nine though so it might be like a Joe Paterno thing except he wasn't holding onto hundreds of child rape secrets. It's very similar outside of that. I think Berkshire hathaway lost fifty fifty billion dollars in investments in Q. One and buffet told people to invest in the stock market. The last two financial crisis and depressions included the examined. Two Thousand Eight. So he wasn't scared in two thousand eight but it scared shitless debut thinking economy will change a lot. Okay maybe yeah. Maybe he's just like I said he might be losing his grasp on things. What else I mean over thirty almost dunking over thirty Americans. Thirty million Americans filed for unemployment in the last six weeks. There's an emergency money for the people. Act that is asking for two thousand dollars per person over the age of sixteen that makes less than one hundred thirty K plus five dollars per kid which is really nice but every month but that's in the early stages of the House and we probably won't even Sniff Anybody. GonNa get slashed up. It might thousand it's going slash and half even if it does get through. It won't be leader Mitch. Mcconnell okay why the people money for the people no thanks Kelli Kelli. He's GonNa to be doing a lot of lies about that. Yeah no I think it's almost past. What else Uber and lift are going to start to require drivers and passengers to wear masks. What else opioid related. Od's are way up during quarantine and make sense if you think about it. You really don't have to show face much during the past few months. Maybe like one facetime a week. People that don't know you're addicted to opioids and on the moon most parts of most days so way easier to schedule your addiction. It's probably it's the same with drinking. I can tell you that for sure. So has to be the same for Oprah opioids and anti-drug right also scheduling going on. You don't have to get in with your doctor. That's the other thing so it's controlled substances. You gotta go see the doctor. You gotTA telemedicine now like a drug addict stream if you had. New York is other bust and drug dealers. Which is you gotta get the drugs. That's the problem. Yeah and then I think that's it for the economy. Although the death toll projections from krona have shifted. Well let's just move on. Let's just just all right guys in military news regarding the ballistic missile attack. That took place back on January. Eighth on the Al Asad Airbase in Iraq because remember that one yes Well the US military's issued twenty nine Purple Arts To the servicemen. Women that were involved in that including the six army soldiers who sustained somewhat more serious injuries that were initially reported with twenty three others having been approved for the award and they'll be receiving that award later on this week according to US Central Command Just recap on. The attack is the one that originated from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard the Iran Islamic Revolutionary Guard in retaliation for the killing of Major General Qassam salomone By the US. Drone Psych Unfortunately guys one hundred one hundred tenuous servicemembers have also been subsequently diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries. Or TBI's who were involved in that attack. So that's a bummer. Sound good yeah. It's not good initially kind of. Yeah it was they were. Their base was pounded with bombs. Basically the majority of the service members were like bunkers scattered around the base Below this is the same time. They shot down the plane to exactly that they were shooting. Missiles Willy Nilly shot down a passenger plane and then they they hit this building but no one died when against the brains gun scrambled. So bummer. But the reason I wanted to cover this because I wanted to point out that traumatic brain injuries. Big PROBLEM FOR OUR RETURNING Soldiers Service. People Service people all around the globe but You know it's not good initially reports guys from the US top brass indicated that there were no injuries after the January attacks but following the attack. A number of troops troops started exhibiting concussion like symptoms prompting a further medical review Quick Recap also guys because I feel like this got missile back in March and other rocket attack struck Camp Taji Iraq killing three US coalition members including two Americans who were active duty Army and air force and one British military person This happened as the krona thing was getting crazy The air for the attack which is also to believed to have been executed by the iranian-backed militia groups has led to the installation of Patriot. Missile launchers and two other short range defense systems interact. So that's good We'll have less potentially tax but again there hasn't been retaliation Hopefully tax stop But we gotta figure what's going on in there with that Wars are going to start kicking back up as soon as this coronas over. Yeah people are pissed wasps everywhere Obviously not to steal any dollar from the armed forces the heroes over there but one thing that not a lot of people are talking about. I've read a few articles but all the all the nurses and doctors and people here there have. Ptsd they're getting PTSD like as we speak. Oh Yeah it's like a war for all these frontlines dramatic. I don't know what's going to happen but people need to start thinking about you. Know hundreds of thousands of people with PTSD on our soil that that didn't come back from home state at home it worked. We've gotTa talk about boneless we gotta talk about brain injuries. We gotTA talk about that. That generally in our culture a lot more. Because it's a it's a real thing. Yeah much coverage in America for all that stuff. Totally all right guys. We'll kick it over to Russia where it is not a good time to be a Russian or Russia A story I covered yesterday. There Corona virus cases are skyrocketing another day of over ten thousand new cases there yesterday now over one hundred forty five thousand cases and hospitals and frontline. Healthcare workers are just completely overwhelmed. Just like Pat. Said they're going to have some. Ptsd over there as well. They'RE GONNA have to deal with from these. People are working long shifts. They're not sleeping their stress. The fuck out now. The spike in cases is because they are testing a ton of people in Moscow around forty thousand people a day. Now so that's what they're tributing the spikes to but Russia's probably end up being one of the top three hardest hit countries in the world when this is all said and done. It's looking like Putin feeling the pressure and Health Care Workers In the past two weeks Three frontline healthcare workers have fallen slash jumped slash been pushed from hospital windows resulting in two of them. Dying and the third is clinging to life right. Now that's a bad outbreak. There maybe they. Maybe they dislike Got New cleaning stuff for the floors and they're slippery. Yeah there. There has been an issue at hospitals leaving windows open. Maybe that'll help. Was it the same window? Is it a big win of the only other country? That really had this problem. Right was Italy right well. There was there was a couple of nurses that that jumped because they were distraught because they thought they'd given some people right the virus. I think one way to kill theirself at home. I don't know if this Russian wants her suicide. Now the Russians are a little different guys. Russians are a little different so this was on. These are okay suicide thing in Russia. People easy to get killed. You know what I mean people. Yeah I think we're going to get to these. People were running. Their mouth will say the wrong thing. Suicide Yeah so on Saturday. An ambulance doctor by the name of Alexander Shula Pof. I'm back on April twenty second. He took the social media. Which by the way bad moving Russia taking social media just not good. Just don't do it. It's bad for you unless you work on. It live on the first floor. I would advise against doing that right. Yeah just don't take to social media to do anything unless you're praising Putin if you have any vulnerable relatives taking social media should be avoided at all costs. This doctor took to social media with a colleague to complain about the medical supply shortage and that he was being forced to continue to work. Even though he had tested positive for krona virus Three days later. He went back on video and retracted a statement. Because that's what you do in Putin's guys put a gun to your head in the middle of the night and tell you to do that His new version was that he was in an emotional state when he made the first video. So disregard please But then after the the flip book whereas just a stick figure getting pushed out of a window through but but Saturday. That's you know. The killers are not decorated artists. Straight flip book. He's lucky like anyone knows where he is but Saturday. He fell from a hospital window fractured his skull and is in critical condition. So he was a little mouthy and it looks pretty shady to me This past Friday. Yelena knepper Nar Shara. That's a long fucking last name. I'm sorry I butchered it because she Has passed away the the then acting chief position of a hospital for war veterans in Krasnoyarsk who fell from a fifth story window back on April twenty fifth died. Apparently she oppose turning that hospital into Corona Virus Hospital and then had this mishap and then there was a nurse who they say jumped to her death after. She was accused of giving Some higher ups the Krona virus when she was tested positive so that one might be a suicide but the first one the guy that's in critical condition. Sounds like Putin job to me. He landed on a pussy riot city. Yeah so you do over there. Making him tend to himself. Medically still dot Sir. You take care of you. Don't take care of you. Still Still Desert Los in Russia per the high numbers. This could be because they attributed some initial desk to other causes because they had more time to prepare because they were doctor. Dr Contradicts those numbers. You're never GONNA get a window you're never going to get the true number out of their Putin showed up to a hospital like four weeks ago in a whole full Hazmat suits and at that point I think Russia was a claiming they only had fifteen cases or something like that total. He wouldn't show hospital has Matsuda. They only fifteen cases. I mean they've obviously had a big problem for awhile was outside of a helicopter on strings waving weaving into the hospital. Has I think Putin's got a pleasure squad of his own if you know what I know. So several com. Yeah so taking it. To the Internet the Kremlin extended lockdown orders to May eleventh there. Putin is not looking good. So we'll see taking the Internet Richard W painter says if any Russian doctor's care to explain how President Putin could have done a better job protecting his people from corona virus. The time is now the window of opportunity is open so he thinks he's a funny guy fucked up troll Richard Richard Painter. She's pretty good. Yeah it's pretty fun so it's no worse than we did and it was just no no. You're right you're gotta get gotTa get to just craft you than us. All right FELLAS GOT. We got a couple of minutes here to make the second round. We've got a get these commuters if there are any right now Do the show quick. Let's go back to space mountain to set off the second round. Nasa is hard at work moving the future of the space program into the hands of people. Like Jeff bezos. But we're talking about earlier Elon. Musk in a way. For the likes of Boeing and other long tenured aerospace contractors last Thursday they awarded Moon Lander contracts so to build the next S- Craft that will land on the moon to blue origin. Visas company SPACEX Musk's company and one other company called like dianetics or something to compete for building mood landers by two thousand twenty one at which point whoever's got the Best Moon Lander in two thousand twenty one is GonNa be tasked to build that Moon Lander and get it onto the moon by twenty twenty four. Which is what. President trump has requested. These billionaires are competing against each other up to build a fucking Fort on the moon and whoever wins is well. I hope that third companies not actually dynamics cut means the scientology's take not it's not l Ron Hubbard's dianetics fools by made his they'd win. Yeah well whoever does win And gets to build the Moon Lander Wall so probably play a big role in the larger project of building a permanent base on the South Pole of the moon which is called project artem EST by NASA basics. That's happening twenty twenty four. I mean it's just a I know he's a smart guy but he just he developed a fucking really a successful way to get goods. You through through a different. It's like it's like the guy who invented the cheeseburger building fucking space rocket. You know what I mean. Yeah it's a lot like our watch out. Watch what you say about because you can make fun of being genius but if you make fun of him for being wealth is this. What about Roy Crock? He writes me a lot of Roy clock. Mcdonagh that's what I'm saying. Crock like rock anyway. Recipes US more than mosque in terms of craftiness ingeniousness. We'll see we'll see how that plays out. We've got a lot of time. Left with those clowns SPACEX will be taking astronauts to the ISS on the Dragon cruise ship on. May Twenty second. That's the first time we got a Private crew private shuttle taken up NASA ASTRONAUTS ISS and most importantly we finally know what causes F R B's Fast Radio Bursts. I have been saying have been caused by aliens this whole time 'cause they're called Space Ball Keno scientists news unfortunately for us it's not fucking aliens Wa wa Wa it's the type of neutron star called a magnet tar that releases intense amounts of energy for only fractions of seconds at a time and then that energy which is bright flashes sends. Frb's rippling all the way through space into neighboring galaxies. The reason we found out what it is finally we have a MAG guitar going off in the Milky Way right now. We're actually watching it. We see what's happening. That was living on. Who's living on the magnetized right hard? Yeah nobody knows what's inside the Magyar. It's coming from there so anyways. I thought it would be something exciting but I feel like I had to report it because it's just come for that by the way guys you guys got to watch that That documentary that the guy told the unacknowledged on Netflix I'm about three quarters of the way through it. It's very good. Oh she's here. We go to watch the hell. Yeah right all right guys. My last story might have been a little bleak with the economy in the Just having fun with the guys that most of us are GONNA be fine. Don't worry but this story this wants so truly heart warming uplifting tale no way no way around it That son of a bitch bond villain robot alien from the Future Lawn Mosque has lost his mind. Publicly lost mine publicly. He's just losing it and it's joy to see because I hate the guy and it's like the time he's lost his mind publicly. He's called a guy pedophile like a year ago. Got Away with the track to that story if you don't follow on twitter What you probably do. Since Yoda's thirty million followers you should do that today. The man tweet some truly wild shit even before crossovers you may remember. He was charged by the SEC enforced to step down as chairman of Tesla over his tweets. He's always tweeting about weed. And Grimes and just generally interesting shit like going after the pedal guy but for the most part he just seems like a normal jokester online maybe not a public figure or CEO. But look at our president. Twenty twenty. And I'm cool if you wanted or Donald WanNa pop off some jokes while the fuck dot but now enter Kovic nineteen and it's gotten a little out of hand for you on It's not funny anymore taking it to the Internet. Ilan said this on twitter last week. He said my girlfriend at Grimes Z. Asses mad at me. Nice that's all that's all I had for that and then Earlier in the day said later in the day Tesla's stock prices too high in my opinion. So just dump Hamasaki now. Let's get into the covy at stuff on March sixty tweeted. The Corona virus panic has done and then on March Sixteenth Tesla Defied California shelter in place order and held it. Silicon Valley factory open and then a bunch of workers got sick with covert team. He just kept him and kept him in the office several weeks too late and they all that sick but a lot of them on March seventeenth. He proclaimed that kids are essentially immune to the virus in all fifty states have reported positive cases for Children. They get a low rate but things are popping up for young people like covert foot. Which is disgusting if you haven't seen it it's those yeah. Purple Toes Red Rashes. It's disgusting and they're also more serious things like fatal strokes occurring in young people so kids are not essentially immune to the virus. Everyone on March Twentieth said. Many doctors are not treating patients due to fear of giving or receiving Covert Nineteen. So just call it a lot of doctors cowards. For No reason on March twenty then he publicly announced on twitter he was going to donate ventilators to hospitals and looked like a hero on April sixteenth. Tweeted out a list of some of the hospitals. He sent ventilators too and when they were reached out for comment they said he actually sent us sleep apnea machines no way you can save the lives of covert nineteen victims. Looks like a hero and he sent these fucking machines thousand exactly like no. She likes the submarine to was exactly exactly. So where's the submariner action? We'll fuck you. You don't like my ventilators you're a pedophile. Where is it couldn't do it? That that's why he just went straight to free American now. That was that was. That's why he went there so then he went to free America. Now that was one reaction and then the last reaction I think this is the true reaction to people not like an asleep apnea machines and give him a hard time. He said I am selling almost all physical. Possession own will own no house. It's like what so then update on that one. Forbes is reporting that you on musk's listing of his larger homes for sale anyone forty million dollars for them so maybe maybe keep an eye on what he's saying on twitter he's following through with it. Yeah I don't know if it wants you to buy those things exactly J. Your House on the market the j both staff twitter yeah. Oj CELERA's house. I'm just saying he andy. Lon both need to go away. Stay off twitter delight. I love fallen. Both of those guys. They got a little bit. Different one's a double murder ones. Just just wait. Just wait wait. Let's keep going dark. Is it easily the best news of the week Oscar winning actor and top tier loose cannon? Nicholas Cage has secured the highly coveted role of Joe Exotic in upcoming scripted series. About the tiger king. Yeah and now that its cage. I really couldn't imagine it being anyone else. I'm fucking excited. This'll Zach restaurant could have been a decent jokes compared to cage no way. They're roughly the same age. Cages and Oscar winner is a fucking nut job. It's going to be perfect brother. The series guys is being produced by imagine television. Which is Ron Howard and Brian Grazer company and and CBS television will be footing. The bill is the studio. No word on who will be distributing the series yet as it will be taken to market in the coming days but based on their current own it or nothing business model. My guess is net flicks is probably out. Now keep in mind you. This is different than a scripted. Tiger king story that we once heard about a couple of months ago which is an adaptation of the wonder podcast titled Joe Exotic. Where Kate McKinnon will be playing Carol Baskin different thing so we are competing scripted tiger king series or films coming out have both can one hundred percent. I just always sell them life rights. I watch both watching both watching the nick cage one. Yeah I'm not watching the Kate McKinnon watching Nick Cage for McKinnon's hilarious. She's like the funniest person on. Snl By four but yeah exactly Carol. Bassin's character is not like a comedian character. She's going to be more dramatic in that role. Nick Cage as camera POPO CANCO discuss destroy committing to one of these two movies. That's the cage one if you have to do one but we'll look is the nick cage wins based on a Texas monthly article titled Joe Exotic Dark Journey into the world of a man gone wild by leaf registered and this will mark. Nick Cage is small screen. Debut has fucking His first television show of all time. My guess is This one's probably GONNA go. I don't know if they're the ones going to happen or not. Because they don't have a writer for it yet but I am really really excited cages. One Take Jake. You just get him onset. He'll have that movie pumped out and we need to be a good take. Let's take it to the Internet. Real quick One Nick Cage. Fan says does he know is GONNA be Doing math with naked dudes and nowhere Jess Nathan. Nicholson says why thank you signed up Europe Seventy Do said checkmate atheists and then rip. Kobe said can an asteroid. Just hit the earth ready. Jesus Christ so a couple of revelations tweets there Yeah we'll see. It's going to be fun. We know that that Asri better wait until we've watched this movie. Yeah what's going to be marked mark the second coming? It's the end. I'm going to poop and said it's not going to be nearly as good as the real thing so I'm not gonNA enjoy it very cool west. Some look forward to very cool all right yesterday I covered his story from stillwater. Oklahoma about the Mayor Names. Joyce who crumbled under the citizens threats of violence against store employees after instituted a mandatory mask. But I'll see in stores and restaurants. He lifted the mass quarter less than twenty four hours after I went to place probably because one of the threats made or a couple of them were made with guns and he saw that people were not fucking around Now yesterday unfortunately looks like he might have done the right thing because in Michigan Security Guard for a family dollar store in Flint. I believe Died after being shot in the head this last Friday because he told a customer they could not enter the store unless they were wearing a mask would which was a state mandate so what happened is a verbal altercation. Happened the customer woman when the store the security guard told her she couldn't come in George Masso. She got pissed off. Gotten recipes sped off about twenty minutes later same. Suv comes back to men hop out and to the store confront forty three year old Calvin Marlon one of the men was pissed off that Marlin was simply trying to do his job and said the security guard had disrespected his wife. More shouting and the man's hothead accomplish security guard in the head and the two fled are still in the room so she went home entitled getting a mask then. The drove all the way back without masks. Probably until this Guy Yup. Yeah the mask thing the mask outrages just the biggest bunch of bullshit it's crazy murdered a security guard at a dollar store man. What like for what for. What for was the For being a DICKHEAD. Who's mad about masks? I mean the mask thing is just if you're the guy versus out there staring down a mass like really really angry about it. Just chill out. Just chill out. I mean we're in. Basque is not hurting you. This guy probably would have shot him over anything. I mean the mask is just there but this guy is crazy obviously so well this is more about them denying her to come into the store and he felt that that was like a rational she probably come home with whatever. He centered at the store. Four and he was mad about that too right. So in general is just sell like seventy eight variations of mask and the dollar store. It's like an entire row of masks. And are they going to start handing out mass? If people need to come in and buy shit you know. Are you going to have to have like little sociable shit? Some some stores are offering like. Hey like you know you can buy a mask right now. If you just like wait outside we have to buy it. Then you have to buy something go into store. It's kind of ridiculous like I duNNo. It's the whole asks situation new reality. It's not this isn't a fake disease thing is. There's enough people who aren't going to wear the mass. It doesn't matter if other people wear the masks so I mean you gotta you gotTa figure out how we're going to deal with this. Don't want to stay at home. And you're an asshole that's fine. You don't need to go protest without your mask on a lot of people are. It's like the first time are countries having to be forced into thinking about their community and like a lot of people. Just haven't apparently aren't ready to do that. I guess that's the thing. Are they think it's not a real thing? They think it's not a big literally. Don't think it's a real thing than than their insane. We're not a big deal. Way THE NOT REAL SLASH. People think it's not a big deal. That's a little bit more rational but you could still wear a fucking mask you know like even if you don't think it's a huge. The Mass I'm out of shape is because there are people there are lots of people died and there are lots of people working in committing suicide and dying. Opiates and getting. Ptsd the hospitals. It is a real thing so I just wear a fucking mad state. Says where mask where the fuck. He could be fine. It can be fun even okay.

Where do we go Democratic primary? They did their own. You know what it is. They canceled New York. People are banking on cancelation cancelled. New York so the kids. It's going to happen So I don't know if he has noticed the Kansas primary just wrapped up and it was a hundred percent male. And that's GonNa be the VIBE. It's going to be all male. And so the the reason they haven't rescheduled in Puerto Rico. Yet in my in my estimation is because they haven't figured out how they're going to the mail in ballots but it won't be cancelled. It'll happen Anyway just just mentioned you. Read the rules on those. Yes well if it doesn't happen it's it's it's a moot market.

Who Will Win the twenty twenty Delaware Democratic primary which takes place on June second? Really Biden's at eighty four cents here guys you want you want sixteen cents a share a Delaware based on the cancellation but again look at Kansas. It just happened.

90 Day Fiance Update, Vanderpump Rules, RHOP, RHONY, Kristin Cavallari, Selling Sunset And More

"Jonathan. Nov Places Actually, Hoover Baker tastes reality, dot com gossip guru, self-proclaimed fan girl, and pop culture enthusiasts with a sweet spot for nostalgia you're listening to this day entertainment a podcast all about the greatest reality TV and pop culture happenings from today yesterday and tomorrow. Welcome to the fanny pack in the words of Bethany Frankel. It's time to mention it all without further ado for this week in reality TV and celebrity news we have to begin with an update about Paulin Karimi from ninety day. Fiance. This has just been horrifying last week. I reported that creamy and baby Pieri were missing faithfully they are both. Okay. Paul. Reported them missing but in reality Greenie took the baby and went to find some safety it's extremely terrifying she. A and it was translated she with the help of a translator wrote a letter to her fans and followers explaining that she and the baby are doing well, and it said a lot of really damning things about Paul, there was also, which is strange. Paul is the one who published the copy of their restraining order that Corinne had gotten against him, which trigger alert trigger, alert trigger, trigger, alert It seems that he sexually assaulted her and rumor has it that she's pregnant again, and all of that is just fucking terrifying and disgusting I mean we knew he was scary dangerous and creepy, but this is be on and. Some of the things that I wanted to note from creamy statement she said quote all this and of course, with translator, there's a lot lost in translation. So bear with me quote all this past as I had a going on as the media showed had issues where the police was called because I feared for my life and my son's life which led me to ask for help old. Rescued from an environment that no longer was healthy for none of us involved in this situation and getting the best help, I could ever get and I'm really think for all the people involved in it I also thank all the people that worry about me for the support I have had. It have been a big part of my recovery relationships are hard and sometimes I just can't be fixed anymore I need this time to organize my thoughts work on myself and care for my son after everything we have been through in the last year and a half. And she said, thanks again and she explained. This is important. She said I would also like to state that I'm not missing the police knows where to find me if they need be this is a legal matter not a quote media matter that being said, it's the first and last time I will speak about it. Thank you all again, Carini. Oh. My I mean honestly at this point just thank goodness. She's okay. Thank goodness that baby safe and they are away from that crazy man. Who Well let's move on also over the weekend, I was really happy to hear this and I know a lot of people are tired of hearing about starchy and Kristen formerly of Andhra pump rules but this was actually some news kerner regarding them. So of course, the two of them were fired a few months ago after it came out that they had called the police on an ex black co-star totally falsely accusing her and then bragged about it laughed about it made a joke of it. Anyway I'm still really having hard time because I love Vander pump rules. I Love Starsky Kristen's also a favorite but especially Honestly. It was really bad of course what they did was disgusting but then just as bad was the way that they handled it afterwards, neither one of them ever apologized to faith not publicly and they had their publicists rates and really generic statements that they posted and it was too little too late didn't feel real. It was honestly just as poorly handled is it could be. I'm going to say Kristen is trying to right some wrongs and is making an effort. So you know that service cameo where you hire a celebrity do like a minute long video birthdays, anniversaries, deaths, whatever the case may be my amazing Michelle after my dog tippy passed away. Got Me Bethany, Frankel Cameo I mean seriously that happened Bethany knows my name and she was so sweet about my tippy but I digress. Kristen, what I was so excited to hear is that she's actually using her celebrity and putting her money where her mouth is. The last learned that the x server is donating a portion of profits from doing cameo videos to the ACLU and sure it's literally putting money on a problem, but it's better than nothing seriously what have we seen or heard Stasi do? Exactly. Well, let's talk about Monday's news I. Did some digging because as you know, I'm new to Potomac, which is amazing if you're not watching real housewives of Potomac like seriously. There has been of course in the media cycle ever since this physical fight between Monique Samuels candice. DILLARD. Bassett ever since that happened in two thousand nineteen, there's been talk in the media about it. There had been lawsuits filed against each woman by the other woman that eventually ended up getting. But I did a really deep look into this case because since I'm new to the show I was kind of in the dark about some of these things. I'm not sure how credible one of the sources is, but I thought this was really interesting. So from the show from the preview at least we can see Muni grab canvas by the hair pulling her down and Bravo's camera caught the whole thing. But as I did some Internet Research there was a source from. Cheat Cheat Dot com that provided some more details saying that candace had thrown a glass of red wine at Monique and apparently the glass broker something because she bled. That's when monique grabbed candice by the hair and punched her three times in the head which we never saw the wine incident that allegedly happened and we never saw candice get punched in the had. So who knows if that happens we're going to have to wait and see but I thought that was really interesting. Fans at this point from what I've seen are totally team on me but it's interesting because the ladies on Potomac seemed to be on team candice and honestly nobody's team candidates because Tan candice is crazy. Love Her on TV but seriously Kansas is. She makes him real decisions and I'm saying this when she had a physical fight with MONUC samuels who now has a pet bird in addition to the three children that she's raising 'em potty training all of them, I mean it's really remarkable. Let's go back on back to Andrew pump rules. Also, a Monday we learned that Danika Dow from the most recent season of Andrew pump rules. She's the woman who was the manager at Sir, and she didn't get along with the little guy that was new that got fired for being racist. Anyway, she's had some problems with physical violence in the workplace. Before one of the reasons I love watching her on television. She seems fairy very temperamental I. Think is a good word. We had seen her just return when actually we met her, she had just returned from being. Suspended for a while because she punched her ex boyfriend while at work. Well, it looks like she was just granted a restraining order against the same ex-boyfriend I forget his last name but his first name is Brett or brand Brett and. Apparently he had broken into her home in the middle of the night brought scissors and cut all of the clothes in her closet up. I would die like I would litter I I mean when I first heard the scissors going into somebody's house, it's like if he cuts her hair and I think like cutting close is like is in obviously breaking into somebody's house like all of this is a violation but a woman in her clothes is like a woman in hair I it's it's too much. It's too much and please can we have them back on the show? ooh It's so messy. I can't help it. It is what it is I. I can't help who I am. Moving onto Tuesday's news, there was a social media frenzy. Cavalieri posted a photo of her and her ex boyfriend slash co star of Laguna Beach. Stephen. Stephen Colletti to her instagram and she was like sitting on his lap and he's single and she's Nelson Gle. She and Jay Cutler. The football player guy have decided to separate. They have three kids together. That was called off a few. Feet go earlier in isolation and Stephen Colletti Kristin. CAVALIERI coming back together getting back together after all of these years would be exactly the twists that twenty twenty meted. Gosh. If Stephen and cake have got back together, I feel like the rain would fall down in wake my dreams and it would wash away my sanity. Gosh, you know those are some really good theme song I. Always Talk About how amazing and it's true unwritten for the hills is and how it's like one of the best the songs of all time which I stand by but come clean for Laguna. Beach Oh my God it was so good Hillary Duff at her best. I'll actually be talking about Hillary Duff later in the stall just section of the podcasts is stay tuned for that some really cool news update I mean the best news. Is that they would finally arrest the police officers, Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly Officers Brett Hankinson in miles, cosgrove I, mean these people already but something good that a celebrity is doing to bring awareness and hopefully justice to Brianna Taylor what. Oprah. Did is that she bought billboards demanding justice for Briana in Kentucky in the billboard handed that the police involved in the murder be arrested and charged and good at Ya, Oprah. This is exactly what people should be doing. This should be something that is in the forefront. Of our priorities as a nation. On Wednesday I released in exclusive interview that I did with Elliot's Sherry. He joined me again on the podcast I talked to him earlier this year and we continued our Shahs of sunset. Conversation, we've talked about what happened at the end of the season. The reunion we wrapped up. We talked about all the cast members where they stand now lots of questions answered. I warn you it is triple X. definitely not suitable if you are going back to work physically. But if you're shahs of Sunset Fan, it's interesting to hear his take. He talks so much trash. It's unbelievable and Oh, you could also watch it on. Youtube have a youtube channel. Now if you go to on this day entertainment I'm brand new guys like it's not very searchable. And dislike the descriptions or not great yet. But I have three videos on their the alley sheree video. You can actually see us talking through We had done a zoom and yeah check it out. It's on Youtube at on this day entertainment dot com or you can read the article or listen to the podcast at on this danger teammate dot com as always. Let's talk about what else happened on Wednesday going back to the housewives of Potomac I thought it was really cool to hear that candace dillard facet is going back to school. She already has one masters degree, but she's going back to Howard University to earn a Master's in business administration so good for her love seeing people do things to better improve themselves and do things. ooh, I, love some gossip I. Hope There's something here they've denied everything but the hunk Bradley Cooper. So delicious he was out on the beach with Jennifer Garner just hanging out just the two of them and that happened the timing was just so weird because it happened hours before the news of her break-up. So she had been dating somebody that wasn't Bradley Cooper. So who cares and then the next thing you know she's on a beach with Mr Bradley Cooper. Oh, she deserves that Jennifer Garner seems like a really nice person and we all know that ban AFLAC has been nothing but a disappointment and somebody who's always loved Ben Affleck like growing up and just not really growing up 'cause he's not much older than me but I guess I'm just trying say like I've been a fan of his for so long it's kind of sake to see who he is and has become or maybe his always been it can talk about that back. Tattoo. I think about that back. Tattoo at least once or twice a week and it's not something I want to think about. Something that kind of Hans me you know when you're in that lake half sleep where you're not really asleep, you're not really awake and you start thinking about things that have nothing to do with anything. That back to that Phoenix at colorful phoenix it haunts me. Speaking of things that haunt me Oh, my God did you guys see the outfits for the real housewives of New York Reunion? The woman look stunning. But Ramona photographed herself wearing this late clear facemask. Zach shape as Hannibal actors, it was so creepy and so amazing. Oh my gosh. Well, those women looked amazing. Tinsley. Comes back. She's in a ballgown. Of course, the women are all wearing black llewellyn looks stunning. Her body is beautiful. She's got these gorgeous diamond accents on her straps, Spaghetti straps and up the sliver dress Ramona does look beautiful very simple dress. Amazing. Sonia looks stunning. She got a great new haircut, very elaborate mask which I love the winner though a has to be Queen Leah McSweeney the freshman housewife looked banging af she's wearing this sheer mask these sheer fingerless gloves that go pretty high her arm like definitely past her elbows. Stunt Ning honestly, all the Women Look Gory derivatives. Dress was definitely amiss. She's the only one who I didn't think looked great. I mean she's a very woman I mean she looked greed but just the outfit was great but I can't wait there the first show on Bravo to film in person again well, at least a reunion this is our first in person reunion in. Some. Other shows are filming and I guess they have a ton of protocol. So hopefully, everybody stays healthy. Let's go onto Friday I. thought this was really good news the MTV VM as. They're usually in September and rather than them just being canceled as so many things are which is understandable. I. Think this was a really good choice. The VM. As are not going to be held at the Barclays Center as. Originally planned but instead, there are various locations around Los, Angeles, where the show will happen. So I'm not sure exactly what that's going to look like but I remember for years they've been doing these remote concerts for the via maze where they'll have a band play at a rooftop of another building and they'll just video them there and they'll have several different performance st that so. I think we all realise whether we want to or not. But this isn't ending any time soon, and we are just figuring out how we're going to keep on living our lives because. We don't really have a choice. Oh wow selling sunset came out. Friday morning at midnight. I woke up in the middle of the night and like could not go back to bed knowing selling sunset was on silica I turned it on and watch league two hours in the middle of the night totally normal it was fast first of all the season. Amazing. Of course but we found out exactly well, not exactly what happened between Chris And Justin Hartley but we did learn that he broke up with her not like broke up with her is in link dating they were married for two years and had been together for six years total. She found out about their divorce forty five minutes before it was in TMZ and it was via frigging tax message I'm shock I. First Thing I thought of was Jack Berger, broke up with Carrie Bradshaw on sex and the city via fucking post it note this is worse. And I also thought after a little bit more reflection about really bad celebrity breakups remember. This was so. Do you remember when. Carson. Daley. was on the Howard Stern show and I believe it was robin who is doing the nails who is getting a shout out later on this episode also, Robin Quivers was doing the news and had announced that Oh looks like Jon for Love Hewitt had his broken up with you. Let's talk about that or Howard mentioned it whatever the case may be, and that was the first that Carson and heard about it. He heard about his girlfriend maybe fiance even dumping him while on the Howard Stern show. WHO This is something that drives me crazy. To things about Selena, Gomez one of them drives me crazy because like whatever she's going to be on a cooking show I guess and like people who are actual shafts talker and walk her through recipes. So I guess it's like cooking for I. Don't WanNa call her a dummy because she's not a dummy. I'm sure. Very intelligent woman very accomplished woman, but I'm just saying she's chef. Has An experience. That's why the shops are coaching your through. Maybe it'll be helpful for somebody like me. But what I am excited about is that Selena Gomez is joining the Hulu series only murders in the building. She's GonNa Start Opposite Steve Martin and Martin Short. It's actually a comedy series and it follows these three strangers who share an obsession with true crime who Find themselves entangled in one of them, Oh my God I just love the word entangled entanglement. Thank you will in Jada. But yeah, I thought only murderers in the building sounds really interesting. Definitely not expecting that to be a comedy when I heard the title. But what can you expect from Steve Martin and Martin Short seems cool to me I'm here for it. Well. That does it for this week's on this day entertainment news head on over to on this day entertainment dot com to read the full articles for this piping hot tea and more I'll be right back with this week's nostalgic look back in entertainment history.

Let's get to our weekly walk down memory lane reminiscing on some of the juiciest and most monumental on this day events from this week in pop culture history starting all the way back in one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, the La Premiere of the movie psycho starring Anthony Perkins and Janet. Lee. Of course. Alfred. Hitchcock movie. This is the day it was released and it was a total game changer for the horror genre I mean the shower scene is just one of the most classic when people think of horror that's probably in their top five. Moments as far as imagery in a horror film. So Classic, I've even seen only guy should so good. Have you guys seen the shower curtains? It looks like a shower curtain, but it has a hand with of blood like trying to grab the way out blood splatter everywhere. Amazing. Another horror movie maybe not the same genre of horror per se but in the year nineteen, seventy, five. So turning forty five, this year is the movie version of rocky horror picture show a personal favorite of mine I mean, it's like one. Of those things, you can't go through Halloween without watching rocky horror I used to actually dye my hair with Kool aid in school and go to the local movie theater and watch rocky horror picture show dressed as Magenta because I was a theater kid and that's what Peter Kids did back in those days there was no internet or maybe there was Internet like this is late nineties. So the Internet was a thing but people having it in their house was still maybe not a thing yet or at least not like. A mainstream thing or at least there was nothing to do on the Internet. Yeah. Like there weren't any obviously no social media I could go on again I digress let's jump to nine hundred, ninety two. This is crazy. Do you remember when James from Metallica got those horrible second and third degree Burns during a show in Montreal, he had walked into the pyro so he literally walked into fire during an explosion on stage that was something that apparently had been practiced or whatnot I'm not exactly sure what happened but they Were twelve songs into their set win James Stepped into a twelve foot high torture fire. What I think is bad ass. Is that seventeen days after the accident metallica resumed on its tour they had a stand in guitarist named John Marshall but James Field did appear vocals only and was back onstage in Phoenix and I love that about James Hatfield, how freaking awesome and just like getting back onstage after like that after like some sort of that sort of trauma, he was watching his skin boil off of his bones, oh horrible. In one, thousand, nine, ninety, nine, Shakira recorded her first live album, and this is going to be a fun throwback. Do you remember? MTV unplugged it gets it started off bands like allison chains Nirvana but eventually or maybe you did start off with more variety of music maybe that's just kind of what I listened to at the time I don't know but in ninety nine, Shakira recorded her MTV unplugged and from what I. Remember. I just looked at the song tracks that were recorded on this unplugged special and they were all in. Spanish. So I didn't know any of them, but maybe I would if I heard them I thought that was really cool and I forgot how long secure has been around for it's crazy I? Think we're about the same age I think she's about my age about forty I might be wrong well in two thousand one. I definitely remember this. After ten years of marriage Tom, cruise and Nicole Kidman divorced. It was one of those weird marriages that never really made sense. This is before we'd really known how deeply into Scientology Tom Cruise was maybe we did. Maybe of getting things mixed up but. They have some adopted children actually I think Gosh I really should've read more about them. I don't know why ever really paid attention to Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. I think she's stunning and so talented and I've love Tom Cruise's movies but I just never really gotten into him as a he's always giving me really weird vibe. So I guess that's why definitely not up to speed on this. But of course that went ended in divorce and Coal Kidman is, of course, moved on with that Lake Country Singer guy who I can't think of his name right now and Tom Cruise has been with. Penelope Cruz of course Katie Holmes. What can you do? Speaking, of this is a crazy Hollywood marriage two thousand two is the year that Nicholas Cage married Lisa Marie Presley of course Elvis's daughter and they were married on the Big Island of Hawaii they were married for a grand total of three and a half months before Lisa, Marie filed for divorce again only in Hollywood but here we go I'm going for the three in a row three breakups in a row. I don't make the news in two, thousand, seven Christina. Oh, my God. So amazing if you guys have not watched to me on. Netflix. Get it together it's two seasons it goes really fast. They're only like thirty minute episodes I think there's only ten episodes for season. It is one of the better like Sitcom drama type things that I've watched in a really long time. Loved it. Christina applegate. Amazing Anyway in two thousand seven when she divorced from that really cute actor Jonathan Shays he was in the movie that thing you do. He's like the really dark handsome guy think he was maybe the lead singer it's been a while. and. He was actually in that movie that Christina applegate starred in with Cameron Diaz in Selma Blair called the sweetest thing. He was the guy who hit on Christina applegate at the beginning of the movie in the nightclub thing I'll yeah that ended up being her husband or I think that actually was filmed while they were married anyway their marriage lasted an entire four years and they split due to irreconcilable differences. It's a lot of divorce a lot of divorce. This. One was really sad in two, thousand, eight Isaak's died. He was the composer, the musician from shaft I really know him as chef from south, park he was sixty five years old died of a stroke and it was crazy because this is win south on I. Guess South Park is still on if I'm not mistaken, but it was still really really popular in two thousand eight. So to have one of the more important characters die was really unfortunate and I know he's contributed a lot over the years. So rest in peace Isaak's. This it feels icky but it's just what it is. In two thousand ten. It would be the tenth year anniversary of Hillary Duff and the retired Canadian ice hockey player Mike Comrie think is his name they had gotten married in Montecito California, which is like the fanciest place ever I went to Montecito probably like a decade ago I had a friend rental house. There oh my gosh. Like Oprah lives there the criminal cram I mean it is boozy a F-. Definitely not a place could afford on a regular basis not for people like me like we drove like in our like Saturn or something at the time definitely stuck out anyway they were married in Montecito. But sadly after six years of marriage, they divorced Hillary is. Again. And I'm not sure about the sports guy 'cause I don't even know who he is anyway. In two thousand eleven Brooke Brooke got, married to Oh and Brooke Burke. If you guys don't know who Brooke Burke is Oh, my Gosh, you guys missed out in the late nineties early two thousand I remember watching wild on on e all the time. This was the host Brooke Burke is Beautiful Burnett who would go and travel to these exotic places and you would see her leg doing these adventures going nightclubbing doing fishing physical activities just anything that you would do on this destination she was there I loved. Wild on so much well, when she was forty, she married David Charvet I think is how you say it he was on Baywatch they got married. But unfortunately here we are again the couple shares to kids sadly divorced they agreed to joint physical and legal custody of the twelve year old and thirteen year old at the time neither one of them are not legally pay child support or spousal support. So apparently, that was in the prenup or there was no pre nup either way probably better off that way. Clean Cut. I guess except for the fact that they share children. So I guess it's that clean but hopefully they get along because that makes a big ass difference kids life and somebody who was a former teacher it makes a big difference in their teachers lives to because that really fucking sucks. Two thousand twelve. Oh my gosh. This has been a really dark week. This has been a lot of divorces, but here's another one, two, thousand, twelve basketball wives have you guys ever watched basketball wives? This isn't one of my reality shows several people who are really respect their reality TV show judgment have highly recommended basketball wives well, Evelyn Lozada and her NFL wide receiver husband. Chad Johnson got a divorce due to irretrievably broken marriage only forty one days after they tied the knot forty one days. That's crazy. Oh. So speaking of dark this thankfully isn't a divorce but oh my gosh, I I don't think any of us really got over this one in two thousand, fourteen, six years ago is when we learned that Robin Williams had unfortunately committed suicide by hanging himself at sixty three years old. You would never know that he suffered depression many people wouldn't know. So many people have depression are battling that on a daily basis try their best or doing everything they know and you never know what people are going through. You never know what happens behind closed doors. You never know what's happening in somebody's head. It was a huge shock and a huge loss to entertain meant he is one of the best movie actors had an amazing career in television mork and Mindy is iconic. You just wouldn't think somebody like Robin Williams would be battling so many demons and here we are six years later talking about his suicide. So that just reminds us to all checking on your family and even the people that you don't necessarily think you might need to check in on maybe they need to check in on also I'm telling this to myself. I am the worst about stuff. I was really proud of Miss Taylor swift in two thousand seventeen with this happened she had gone to court and testified that DJ David Mueller Muller, Muller Mueller, whatever he had groped her and. If I'm not mistaken. I remember correctly he had like grabbed her back side after an interview I think it happened in Colorado and what I love is that When she took him to court. There had to be some sort of monetary value of like representing the damage done to her and to prove that she was just really doing fighting the good fight for what she thought is right and to stop him hopefully from doing something like this in the future she went to court over a dollar she sued him did whatever I forget exactly what the wording would be. took him to court for a dollar, but just to prove a point that it is not okay to grab women under any circumstance. So thank you, Taylor. Also in two thousand seventeen. Walt Disney Company announced their plan to create its own streaming service and that meant they had to cancel their ties with Netflix. Seemed like a really bad idea at the time. But Hey, we have Disney plus in it's amazing. I was just thinking we have beyond as black is King Hilton is on Disney plus and all of the mighty ducks movies I mean in addition to everything like Lindsay Lohan all of her movies, lots of Hannah Montana in those archives don't get me started on high school musical and of course, like all the movies that we grew up with like Disney. Wise. Those maybe aren't my favorites to go back and revisit, but I totally freaking get the nostalgia whatever is your flavor I am totally here for. Twenty Twenty Disney plus one of the things I'm actually happy about in twenty twenty it's it's been diet has been dire- for all of us. Well just last year we learned that Miley Cyrus and her hunk Hottie hot. Boyfriend I'm sorry husband Liam Hemsworth, my favorite Hemsworth a little aside announced their separation and intention to divorce. If you think about that since then Miley his dated Caitlin. Carter the ex of brody. Jenner. That was like a really hot story for awhile, brody ended up dating. Some actors daughter and I can't think who he is but she's stunningly beautiful maybe like a wrestler or something like that. I don't recall. But they both had really really public relationships right after. Well that does it for this week's nostalgic look back in entertainment history four of this week's birthdays. We mentioned the movie psycho earlier I wanted to give a shoutout to Alfred Hitchcock who was born in eighteen, ninety nine in addition to Saco he it did the birds rear window. Amazing. Amazing talent who we last sadly in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty. Robin quivers. Clean Robin quivers May I add the CO host of the Howard Stern show she's the one who provides all the hot news on the Howard Stern show. I've always loved Robin have always wanted to be Robin Oh. My Gosh. She has just delivered it for me. So hardcore so many amazing memories she is sixty eight years old so happy birthday Robin. Rosanna arquette turns fifty one and Donio Bundy Orissa turn sixty this year happy birthday John slattery do you guys know him? He was on mad men he played Roger and if you remember on sex and the city he played The politician who wanted to pee on Kerry I. Think he's so hot like he's like obviously I have daddy issues I am so into this guy, he's got the the old man like white hair delicious. Well, he turns fifty eight and I'll be honest I thought he was way older than that but that's all good. Whitney. Houston would have had a birthday this week. Unfortunately, she passed in two, thousand, twelve probably the best singer of all time I mean there are a lot of people who people would say are amazing talents. Mariah Carey. The list goes on and on but Whitney Houston has one of those just perfect sounds. Her tone was just absolutely perfection. Some of my favorite songs one of my favorite movies of all time the bodyguard I've been lucky enough to see it on stage twice anyway, Whitney Houston was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, three, the same year as sir mix a lot who is fifty seven this year. Another haughty that I'm very into I. Don't know how popular of an opinion that is I know Leah from real housewives of New York into Joe Rogan turns fifty three. He of course is the host of the Joe. Rogan experience like the most popular podcast in the world and I remember him from being on fear factor. Did anybody else watched show anti stand up comedian of CNN few times at the comedy store in La He is amazing. Justin, theroux and. Hunk Hoti hotson dot made no sense but I'm going to go with it. Anyway he turns forty nine Rebecca Gay Heart who I just love so much. She was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, she turns forty eight. Do you remember the nut? Zima girl from the nausea commercials in the Eighties Oh my God love her she was in the movie John. Breaker. But I am a huge superfan of her from her days on Beverly Hills Nine, o. two and now after Dylan. Dated Brenda after Dylan dated Kelly he ended up dating a girl. He met at the Fictional C. U. The college California University that most of the gang went to actually all of the game went to Brenda ended up there. Oh my gosh I'm getting off track again, but she ended up marrying Dylan and her dad went to have dylan killed the night of their wedding and accidentally had her killed instead all because she lost her cat so sad anyway Rebecca Gerhard. Turns forty eight happy birthday. This was weird on the same day these three music birthdays to bandres in one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, Scott stapp was born he was the singer of creed he's forty seven and turning forty four are in sinker Jaycees say and drooling Shea from ninety eight degrees. So Happy Birthday Queen Tinsley Mortimer turns forty four this year of course from High Society Real Housewives of New York just an absolute delight of a socialite who knew social AIDS could be that. Sweet. Love you Tinsley. Real housewives of New Jersey's Amber Markes Markazi. I don't love. Jersey I. Know that's a very unpopular opinion. I. Don't know this cast as well as I should but amber turns forty three. So happy birthday to amber. Oh my gosh, another Hemsworth. Chris Hemsworth is time for the Hemsworth from the avengers. He turns thirty seven Anna Kendrick from pitch perfect turns thirty five. Carried de Levin Turns Twenty eight I felt so old when I did the math and figured out that Kylie Jenner who was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, seven, turns twenty three, which is crazy and Shawn Mendez turns twenty two.

I mean, I don't like saying I'm waiting 'til my husband is home because I'm just waiting till the other body who lives in my home home, admittedly, pretty good with a knife. He could he could use a dive in a pacifist way. I think he could shoot someone out. Look, I wanna see it. But I have to wait. Yeah. Why haven't you seen it genuinely was too scared? I don't know. Yeah. I I gotta just figure I'm gonna watch it friend of the show cameras busy so recently confided in me that she hates scary movies hates him hates them. She knew that for social political reasons she needed to see get out. She watched it at seven AM with the sound off captions on paulie. She could handle it feel like it's going to work for me. You think you're too scared? I feel like I get too scared at it like affects my whole day. Oh, yeah. You know? Yeah. Then you have to go bunch of meetings. Just looking over your shoulder. Yeah. Nervous lupita is gonna pop out from somewhere just podcastone with evil. Winston do. For the kids have names too. I just thought sure anyway, this is racist. God, I know I usurped are well call sign what is it called just look down at your damn phone. We always say this. Why do we have to tell you? What you what you elected to listen. What do you think? You're listening you pick. What is this? What do you think? We are. You're like I meant to click. Joe rogan? Oops. How did I get here? If you did that welcome. Thank you for listening. We hope to convert you consistent fan. That's that's going to be tough this podcast where we it was near racism his questions, we answered the helpless special guest. We sure do, you know, we also talk a little bit about the garbage that happened this week was any real garbage. Yeah. Tim allen. Tim Allen Allen is garbage to melted demanded to be able to use the N word saying that if he quote shows no intent many shows, no racist. Intent if he is clearly not a racist. Yeah. Why shouldn't he be able to use the word nigger in his stand up? I love when racists say I'm clearly not a racist. Like, I'm clearly not. I'm just demanding in an article. Yelling at a journalist about why I can't say the N word. What's more clear about my non-racism than that? We're in a bit of a catch twenty two because like people who understand how racism works would never say. I'm not a racist. Right. Right. And so we're in a weird place where really the only people who say, I'm not a racist or racists, Andrew, do you worry that like in some bizarre tribunal court? There's going to be people who are like Andrew Antonie never said, they weren't racist. They never went on record to say, they weren't this is a little bit. Like, I mean, I guess that is the twilight zone version of the are this show where we wind up before racism court or to the judge. It has to be a the judge has to be a kangaroo. Yeah. I don't know what kangaroo court is. But he also said that he found the abbreviation the N word to be more offensive than the word itself. I mean. I don't know. Maybe that was an original thought when I heard that as like a D minus take on comic view in the nineties. Yeah. I guess man. I guess man. Go ahead. I had use it. Also who was who was surprised that amounts? Still a standup. I was very surprised to hear this. I think that especially this era of old guy. Still does stand up. Okay. This is where they flex their this. This n word all the time. Well, I wonder who else is on that Bill with you that night 'cause it better be an all white show. I mean, I I will say this. I would say first of all I bet it wasn't. And I bet you could find comics that I don't it's this depressing thing, and look I'm not a standup of a deduction a little stand up. But I'm not a stand up. I know I'm not a stand up, the the camaraderie standups feel with each other. And with the in their opinion, you know, highest sacrosanct thing of. Say anything when you're up on that stage. I do not and will not ever understand people support him. Yeah. Maybe they will. But he's going to run into somebody. Who won't? I mean. He's wrong is the thing. I I should hasten to say he's absolutely fucking wrong. So star you didn't get it in. This. Kangaroo court. We. Two. Is the tale? Yeah. Okay. So the judge isn't like behind a little judge desk that he's us hopping around. I would imagine it's like, you know, maybe got like sort of straps, and it's attached to his waist. Oh. And there's maybe if it's a mom kangaroo. There's like a a little additional cut out for the Joey to have a secondary smaller. Kangaroo court. Yeah. I sing you. Yeah. Man. It's like a real dark version of Winnie the Pooh at this point. I mean, when the poo was kinda dark is it time for a real fucked up reboot though where your get sent to labor camp. What I don't know. I'm just saying your just feel like the vibe, I guess he runs the labor camp. How y'all Joe Rogan listeners? Do it tuned in? You still like this welcome. Let us know describe let us know if you think your has that capacity to become some kind of proto animal Nazi, okay. What the fudge were we talking about? I mean is there any Tim Allen racist? I think is there. A further argument. The the thing that you always say, I'm always just about giving people munition for when they have to have these conversations with their dumb, friends, or whatever. Like, well, if he he's not saying it bad if it's just the thing you always say about how you can't let the perpetrator determine intent. Yeah. It's like he he says again, if you say, I'm clearly a racist about yourself your hundred percent races and racist. Like Donald Trump says he's not a racist. The fucking like K K K people say, they're not racists, like guess, what that phrase holds no. No way when you're saying about yourself. Yeah. Like absolute zero no, in fact, it holds a negative, wait. It's a helium or hydrogen. Remember? They're like it only. It's such a red flag for fucking racists to believe that like there, isn't racism or whatever in and of itself is racist. But like to think that you yourself, and you you're fucking conservative asked him Allen self are now racist, you're fucking delusional. Now fuck you Tim Allen. Obviously, I mean, great timing though, with the release of the new Toy Story, though, just really great. It's like some Liam Niessen level press work, you know, just or Seveco Mortenson lake will it's really this is the time to do that m some enterprising video editor out there. Maybe vine star. But you can probably find audio him saying the N word just replace all his dialogue and the Toy Story. Well, hackers get at us. Hackers. Get out yourself make it heck pin. If you have donated to the ACLU, you probably got recently, you probably got an Email inbox about how they're suing the FBI because the FBI won't handover surveillance records on what they're calling quote black identity extremists. Which is a group that does not exist. That is not a thing. But they are using it to be able to survey all certain activists. I would maybe say it's not that they don't exist. They are as miniscule they're as big a threat to society and to white people as like the dudes yelling at the Covington sexist racist asshole, kids, right? They're they're they're very marginalized. They haven't like conducted like LA. Large scale, you know, or any any like large numbers of fucking, you know, they're they're no more dangerous than a common criminal which is not saying not dangerous if you're in their space right that second. But for instance, in public a protest or as a thing the FBI should fucking concentrate on day are statistically nothing. Well, and I think that what you're talking about are tiny fringe groups that what the FBI is possibly doing. But we don't know because they won't release the records and the standards by which they're grouping people. Would it seems that they're doing is grouping a lot of these small groups together and combining them with groups like antifa? With people who are involved in black lives matter, which are which are larger groups that are not the same as you're talking about. So I think that's where the big discrepancy is coming from like, suddenly, I mean, we're probably on a list somewhere just for shit we've said on here. So I mean, I assume you mean best podcast truly and like just please. If. I am on one of your black identity. Extremists list. Can you please use a recent headshot? I have so sick of a deadline going out or a variety going out. I've got bad. We've and I just can't okay? I have great headshots. Now, get at me, Robin swank took them. So thank you very much hack into Tony's computer where you already lease like hack into my computer and get a recent headshot. How hard you know, what? Yeah. If you're gonna if you're gonna survey every other part of us, right? Get the good angle. I'm going to be a part lack identity extremist at least respect my identity to be extremely good. Looking damn it. Tony has had that written down on a note card for about five years. I wish I wish. So I I started the term black entity extremists. And I won't backed out finally paid off it really looking your best. We'll say I'm a little hill. You website looks. I guess how graphic design for the sort of thing works just enough like the Fox News website where I'm like. But it's not look, here's the thing. It's like our entire racist ass law enforcement structure goes the fact that they are not devoting back out of eloping it. Yes. About a thousand percent more resources to the white racists who are actually out here. Fucking killing. People is part of the disgusting thing. I mean, obviously, the wack F B I has a long history of trying to stabilize civil rights movements. Oh, yeah. Counterintelligence program used to survey. The student nonviolent coordinating committee. Yeah. In their name. It says you don't need to worry about us. It's just fuck the FBI. Hey, speaking of the I this isn't really some shit that we really give that much of a fuck about. But obviously Mueller Muller. Whatever the fuck. His name is handed over sort of tepid report, blah, blah, blah, didn't present evidence of direct evidence of collusion with Russia from Donald Trump. Also, wasn't exonerating. Yeah. I mean, I think people are really sorry. A lot of like what I just read my tweet about this. Because I think that sums up my thoughts about it. People are upset about it. And I sort of understand. But you know, I said the downside to all these people who only just learned we live in a racist. Oligarchy is that they think this should have is new and happened overnight. And they they want it to be fixed overnight as well. I think a lot of people thought like, oh, you know, this. There's a silver bullet for this. And I don't think they understand that the werewolf of racism has its bad. Now, it is not the worst. It's ever been in our lifetime. And when we thought it was good. It wasn't still bad. Yeah. You just maybe didn't. Yes, it because maybe you didn't encounter it on a daily basis. It's not new no. I don't know. We don't have we don't. I mean, look, this isn't the kind of show. We talk about the politics. The law stuff. We would direct you to. Let's see who are some of our friends Mani Gandhi at rewired dot news. Always great. It's got a podcast called. Boom lord. Yeah. Maybe she dipped into it. Boom knows what the fuck. She's talking about it. Sure. Another good way to describe that. I don't know. I mean, look, I think like the reason you feel. Compelled to really want someone to simply impeach Donald Trump is because it does have a element of staunching, the bleeding showing some of these people that, you know, their most extreme behavior will on some level not be tolerated. However. I don't know so bad. These people are still very powerful. There's racism and other bigotry has never you know, it ebbs and flows. But like, I think the the mistake has pretending it has always been very strong. And that it will be easy to fight. It's hard to fight. It takes forever. It's going to take our entire lives. And we're not going to finish. We're not even gonna win probably any Brown American older than you to just talk about some things, and it can be like depressing uplifting. It can also be kind of sobering. In a way. That's like. Oh, yeah. This is this is a constant struggle. And yeah, I just encourage everyone to like, you know, if you don't have a parent or somebody who went through, the civil rights movement find someone who did and just, you know, in a non creepy weird white person chasing down on all black man way. Like Chit chat them up about you know, what uplift them in these times. And what similarities and differences they notice because lightning. Yeah. I know that it's a process. It's not a fucking video game or movie like there is not an end to this. Even though we all had our brains conditioned to believe that it is. Is there a racism video game? Someone's got made one even if it's on the wrong side. It's probably there's definitely one of the most of them. I don't know if you've seen people who play video games. Evidence consisted that that shit causes you to that's right racism causes. That's right. Video games 'cause racism. That's a hot take. We do have friend of the show. If you walked weigh in the building right now, the materialized just by me mentioning video the blackest video game to motherfucker. Not the most black or most video game. But blackest and video games. He's the most in that van diagram over. Yeah. Well, maybe we'll have a minute. At the end of the episode. Tell us about what racism video games exist. We go along we maybe have gone long this week. We're bringing you a live episode are episode in Portland. Oh, yes. Who so fun? It was very fun. We had great guests Montel Sheikhi. We had Curtis cook. We had Katie win. We had Catherine spires. So full ass house. It revolution hall who so great. Yeah. We really love this festival. We like Portland. We're sorry. We dunked on it. Really, our guests dunked on it that wasn't us so much. Yeah. We love Portland yesterday. Asterisks? Everyone needs to do better everywhere. It's not anywhere. But we had such a nice time. Thanks to the people Portland for coming out. Thanks to the listen Portland festival. And I guess the city of Portland, thanks to that amazing like lamb kebabs sandwich. I had holy mode. Right. You really did it right? That's what I learned about Portland. I forgot having lived in LA now for a while. I forgot what I lived in New York. I ate like ninety percent of my dinners while walking. Yeah. Confuse your digestion, I fucking love it. I just love moving around. Want to hear what it sounds like to hear a man who's recently walked eight a lamb kebab? Dude. Everyone. Dies. They're filming. It makes us look. Good. That was shameless of me. But I was like we have to have we have to have this fake rockstar energy. What's up Portland? Every time. I'm like well every time we're like, oh, we're coming to Portland we get like people in the Twitter mentions being like Lou we need it need. And I was like Portland actually, probably as good. We can probably talk about this morning when we bring out our special guests. But yeah, we do get a lot of people that are like we think we're so woke your, but we really need you guys. Come and talk about it. And it's like there seems to be a fighting of the perception of Portland, I love I love white people narking out other white people energy. The best. You people are the good ones. Thank you for being here. So we should bring out our guest. Yeah. Man. Yes. Our guest is will you should do the ramp up because you ask them when you want it to be called over at find. I can look stand up comedian writer, very very funny, dude, he has never not seen me. Holy hung over Mohannad el-sheikhi. How do you find the I dunno the racism in this town? Just just between us scale of one to ten how the white people around here. Like you're recommending a restaurant where you're like how? How do I people here? White. I'll get a five stars tired. Yeah. Yeah. Because he's doing a lot of skill. Yeah. I like that. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like, you're southern racism where people just say, racial slurs, more creative. Oh, hi. You could say it's a little like artisanal. He spoke. They know just enough about your culture to really talk. And so you've been doing comedy here and around the country. Yeah. House like the standup scene here for you. This is really a love a love this end of seeing communities. Very great doing comedy in Portland can be weird sometimes because you never know if the audience is agreeing with you because you made a good point or they actually laughing. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Laughter responsible. Yeah. They like, oh my God. Yes. You just said your name is Muhannad. We like that. Absolutely you belong here. Okay. For the record. Tony was talking shit about clap Dir I thrive on it. So keep it. Now mad. You just have to have actual laughter in the show to show a stand up comic who sang all good important things. But the whole set is just clapped or where people are just like, yes, we need to hear this mess. That's not a comedy show this Ted talk. Yeah. That's Ted talk with a dash of like church. Yes praise. Yes. Yes. Originally from Libya? Did you Portia? I moved from Libya to Portland. Yeah. No. It definitely makes sense. That's normal. Everyone goes on sick of New York. Gotta go to LA like when you're out on Libya. You just gotta go to Portland, right? Exactly. Yeah. Oh my God. I'm so tired of being Ghazi. Whereas next Portland. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you rolling with me on this dumb. Oh, man. Well, we have some voicemails. All right, here is a mother fucking voice mail. Philippine among white dad might be the from Mexico. My mom has a sister who had said a lot of shit about Mexican and she's married to white oval. Eric goes noted for Trump and probably will again, I don't want the presence of my racist relative that are winning. However, I do want your son who's my cousins and not a big too. Stiff dad, more importantly, I know my mom's are fit if I don't invite my aunt and her husband, should I do. All right, everyone got that. Basically fans of the show will recognize a white x is a white uncle x is a recurring character my own racist white on coal if I ever get married. I'm going to have to invite his ass. No. You know, I got married should I do not invite the people. I did not want to see. I didn't give a fuck who was gonna be mad. Oh, not. I just didn't. Did you get married ever? No. Okay. Playing to invite so many people, absolutely racists. Yeah. I actually don't have the list of people that want to invite. My do have a list of people. I don't want to invite Sakiz, right? Everyone needs a list of people. We hate your loved ones. That's like you'll figure it out. I will say like looking through. And I didn't invite anyone I wasn't close with or was working with kind of a big wedding. We didn't know each of event. So that's why I've Andrew wasn't there. I didn't like him. But I did invite people that I was just kind of working with at the time who I liked, but didn't know super well. And now there's a couple people that I've had like small falling outs with and who I was tight with at the time. And I will say that when I look at my wedding album, or like when people come to my house, and they see my pictures. They wanna see whatever if I see a picture that person. I'm like annoyed because I'm like, man. Why would they there when we had this falling out? They turned out not to be a great friend. So if you already know someone's racism. Just imagine looking through your wedding album later and being like there's fucking do to keep talking shit about Mexicans eating my fucking canapes. And that I paid for do you want your wedding ovum to just have like people's faces xed out? No. So just don't invite him in the first place. Yeah. I can't imagine. I don't know. Do you get pressure from family or anything to like include people that you normally wouldn't talk to? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, it's not like even like, weddings or something. Like, even when there's any I dunno special occasions, and my mom was like you have to call you on coal. I hate him. What are we gonna talk about nothing? Yes. So I I'm always like, Nope. Throw this out there. Fuck on calls. Have a good Andrew. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. Yeah. I mean, like don't you don't have one good uncle, no. Oh. Some people like their goals. Every is trash is that useful. Should we move onto another one? We get once. Here we go with. Let's do this one. Hey, so why am I wife is Puerto Rico, and we have a child and. And. We're both kind of weary. We we're having a boy into now tone. You know, obviously, then you for black women shoes. But we just kind of thought would be more Polly danger. If he were boy, which is and when he came out we were both help ably relieved when he looks like not a hundred percent, but like just very passably white, and we know that that's fucked up, and we both one the country now because we had that. But they'll kind of persistent if you ways so I'm just kind of asking is derail leaf itself racist. I feel like in the past. We haven't had a house lights quite like this. I've never been see the audiences face when they're listening to the voice mails. I was purposely looking down at the ground. But now, I just learned what the sound of cringing is. It's just hang to thing. I I thought it was like so is is me seeing white faces and then I have a relief racist. And also I love how he started saying. I am white. Yeah. I can hear you. We know we have started. This involuntarily. We've accidentally made people feel like they have to self identify probably. 'cause when they don't we go like, well, the colored say if she was blah. So I feel when people call in they have to immediately lay out there racism credential. Yeah. It's like people give their entire resume and take less than ten seconds to do it very much, actually. So I will applaud that caller. It's up short eight second voicemail. Give it up or down minutes. Also, give it up for the fact that I now have a file on the computer called passing white baby. MP three. Perfect. I mean, he doesn't have that file everyone that we're we let's do we have any more to say about this. It's like, it's. It's pretty clear cut. I get what I don't get it. I can see what he's saying. He's like we don't want to have a black sun because black men are getting killed everywhere. But I also took issue with him being like what if it was a black woman. It would have been. Okay. So intent no what. What? Yeah. They're relief was with strange to me because it's like well that kid is still going to have also like day. No, his like also like asking people to be like, can you tell? Yeah. We do. That's basically the the meat of this podcast is being like I had this thought. Please absolve me right in a sense this podcast should be called. Fuck you for even asking. Not really. Try to I that. It's by the, you know, the idea of like fuck you for even asking but call in three. We're going to do one last voicemail and then bring out the mobile compatible. Secret the other day and a lady came up the in me, if I need any help, and so to come to her, and if I had a question, and so when I was checking out I was wanted to get credit for her helping me out and the cashier acne, which which clearly it was, and I could the only things I could remember about her where that she had Bob hair, and it should Brown. So I told the lady those two things, but I felt kinda weird that those were the only two things, and I'm also white girl. So I felt yeah. I was just wondering if that's a racist thing to dentist somebody with their Bob hair and the Brown, basically. So. Yeah, that'd be no. Without me. No overly talking shit. We probably should open this one because it's feels like this voicemail was the essence of Portland. Yeah. Yeah. You know, why person trying their best? Yeah. It is like I'm aware. Yeah. I'm aware of what I did. But also, I'm gonna laugh. Question. I'm like shut up boy Muhannad. How do you think? People. What are the two things people say where they meet you. Oh my God. Describe you later. Oh, well, I mean, it's usually like it's either this lately, ethnic guy or Hispanic all Hispanic. Because they worked in retail two years ago. People would come to me started talking to me in Spanish. Oh, and I'm like, I honestly don't want you to talk to me even in England. You just shouldn't have been in customer service position. Absolutely. Yeah. I discovered that. When I was out there trying to fold those damn t shirts. I was like every t-shirt is folded differently. I was like I never had a job where I had to actually make the label face the right way, pick up the merch because everyone is uniquely folded by Tani, and it will never unfold I do sometimes think like I like I said this on here before that. I like when people can just say like, oh that woman, she's black and not like stumble or quiet the word or be weird about it. Because to me it shows that like you have black people in your life on your comfortable saying the word, but this does feel a little different. Because if weird it is like I do feel like on the show we put white people in a bind. Sometimes because it's like, you could also if you set it confidently, this would be fine. The main problem was. Brown. Exactly. The Brown helped. Here. I think away you said that one time I had my manager to come to me and said, oh, so yeah. This lady, I think she was looking for you. She described. I can't say it and what Jesus. What do you mean? I don't think I can say what what does that even mean? And she never told me until this day. I never found. Yeah. Yes. It said about. Yeah. Go talk to that person. No. I didn't know what who was the person. She said they were looking for you. And also were they looking for me. No one knows. Maybe it was someone else. Mexican dude. Yeah. Exactly. What did she say? Did she say vaguely ethnic N, handsome or like? Yeah. Oh my God. That's insane for you. I can't say what they call. Exactly can't repeat that terrible word. What are Andrew? What do people say about you? Well, you know, I'm in comedy. So they can just be like the only Asian person. I've met in ten years that one. Yeah. Oh, 'cause you're always right around. So they can just point. I'm like. Looking for me. I always get this isn't what people say about me with people. Always tell me that. I remind them of their friend from college. Always get remind me just at the airport yesterday. I was like buying a bottle of water and the girls like you remind me so much of my friend kissing Andro or whatever. And it's always like this just mixed girl. You know, that's all it is. It's really just it's this thing where like it would be dope. If there was a way for people's brains to not only be screaming race when they meet someone over differ race, because it's just like just learn one other fact, how about we're gonna give actual advice for the caller, which is like just learned one thing about someone if you're going to describe them, and you know, retail situation shouldn't you like identify them by their shirt or something. Yeah. Because they're probably all wearing like hip little closed from the place. So can't you be like the lady in the, blah, blah, blah. Then you're describing also this is crazy, and I don't know people can do this. But ask people about their names. That seems like. Fuck that it just where I come from. That's a good. Yeah. Presumably there are name tags involves all right? All right. I guess names are good first off she's a comedian and a teacher Katie win. Portland favorite. Did we tell them where they were going to sit or stand? No done the get up to greet you, but we we're very trapped in we're lost. I really never wanna get up when somebody enters the room, so. Okay, good. And you don't have to win. This next person comes out. He is a he lived in Portland for a while. But he's originally from Ohio. His right to the gym Jeffrey show he lives in LA. Now, he's great. He's our friend. He's Curtis cook. You might recognize Hertzen I met for the first time at a Llosa's racist show in Portland, and it will also be the last time we see each other. Why one of us going to die tonight? And finally, host of these smart mouth podcast and a great friend of ours. Catherine spires. Okay. Hi, catherine. I we heard that your smart mouth show went great right before this. It was so great everyone got tater tot. So they were happy shut up. We don't have any snacks for them. I mean, no that's not an option ever gonna make us look bad Curtis. How long have you been in town? Three days call. Yeah. Is it good to be back place? He lived. No, I'm good. I didn't really like it here here that Portland tourism. Famed curtis. Coke doesn't wanna come back. No, we we love it. I mean, did you just you get the thing where like once you've lived a place, you're ready to move on? And you don't necessarily need to be back there bunch. I feel like you're leading me in a right direction to help. You just don't have a lot of respect for the people or the cultural. Bad boy of Portland. You know what I started doing comedy? I remember being on stage and just like his hate. What's up with them? Why is he like this? Now three years later. I get it. The record. We love it here. Excited to come back. Of Katie how long have you lived here about eight years? Oh, cool. So that's enough time to know how it works. Right. Oppressively white. Yes. That's how it works. Again, you guys are good ones. We really really stressed that anything when you come to our show you can guarantee that we've collected the most Jewett doing our bestest portlanders ever right being much. Appreciate it. Okay. So we're going to give you fifteen seconds. So this is a segment called uncomfortably fast advice, where we're going to ask are, you shoot? Our mouths off way too much. Of course, thought panel could help us panel with not enough time. Yeah. A panel with not enough time to give actual good answers. Although some of you are allowed to try if you want, but the idea is just to air these questions out, and maybe they'll get you guys thinking about them. And maybe we'll get some good jokes. Maybe we'll get some, you know, life advice that useful. Probably not. It's not gonna be useful. We will be I guess keeping score. Yeah. We're gonna be keeping tight. We're going to keep you very. Yeah. So one of you on the panel is going to be the racist yet. So the prize the prize is yeah, you get to be the racist. Haven't we all been looking forward to that? Oh, okay. So fifteen seconds Tiber. We're going to call you by name. And then God read out. This one is my favorite one. So far completely blink wherever set that. One is. Not blankets white. White on white baby Portland. Someone was just trying so hard to follow rules. Even though they couldn't read a question down there. Like, they said pass it forward. Louise passed it forward. All right. All right. We good. This is this one going out to Curtis. How do you combat systemic racism as a woman of color? Seconds them girl. You just got to get get yours. That's correct. I don't know great ten points to Curtis. All right. This next question that I'm reading cold. I hope it doesn't end with me shouting slur is going out to Katie. My grandma told me that comma Harris and Cory Booker and her favourite democratic candidates, but she doesn't think the win because America isn't ready for another black president not really a question. Just an admission of your fucked up family, Katie what? Maybe next time you go home for the holidays. Tell your grandma that she should shove it and. That you still love her, but you won't be seeing much of her anymore anti that is correct five points. Grandma shove. People are Catherine and my mother is brainwashed. My dad's Trump living views, I feel she's losing her true, self any advice. My God for helping our see other views without ruining our relationship slash friendship. Your friend, your mother's, your friend. That's correct. That is correct. Thank you. You get bonus points for answering in the least amount of time. Okay. One for Mohannad. I'm just gonna read the back of it. It just says because her music is catchy. Yeah. Yes. Correct. One more. Yeah. Okay. So for Muhannad since you have some experience with this. How do we refer to Hispanic people Hispanic? Let's you know, let's, you know, Mexican. I just need clarification. So I'm not offensive don't point them when you say, Hispanic. Okay, pointing. Yeah. And also. Don't refer to me as spanning. That's about me. Earnest requests from this man, he is not Hispanic. Okay. Back to Curtis is it racist? White gay men say things like that snap Jesus. That's my we've when they love something. Fifty seconds while so much good. I would say that as an ally to the BT plus community that you know, it's really difficult to be outspoken and be yourself in the world like this. But sometimes you shut the fuck up. Mary true empathy for the trials and tribulations yet. Also, a good common sense. We just say trials and trips trials and trips. Maybe keep it concise. Okay. Here we go. This is for Katherine Catherine's well-traveled. If you go on vacation and bring back a souvenir depicting, a certain cultural image in parentheses, not a person is it not like not bring back a person. I assume. Like, you're not bringing back like a doll that looks like, okay. We get it is it coastal appropriation to wear or display it. Where? Yes display it. No. Oh where it yes display. It know what anyone likes to challenge. Bonus points, and it would have an opposing viewpoints. No. They don't wanna challenge. Apparently. Correct. I will say that. Sometimes I feel weird or wearing things I'm going to be perfectly honest. I was too busy reading this. Next question. I didn't hear the question at all. That's on par for this show. I'm. Okay. Katie my boss white male decided to give one of our visiting corporate co workers, they see hawks jersey. Do we like the Seahawks here do? Yeah. Fortunately. Do you like sports? Sorry. This woman just screamed women soccer. I love that. Then. Okay. That's the sport we stand here. And if the Seahawks wanna start playing women's soccer, then we'll be a fan of them too. Yeah. Okay. She is Asian and of all the players. He chose one whose last name is rice is that racist? If there was a way for the listening audience to distill katie's face right now down it's real good. I feel like for the for the prison about that jersey. It's kind of like those those those pieces of Arthur far away looks like a big picture zoom in each one of the tiny picture and from far away. It looks like a portrait on the inside each one says racist. Square grit. That is correct. That's exactly what we had written down the answer. That's incredible. This one I'd like to open up to the floor. We'll take short answers from all four of you are dreadlocks on white people. Racists muhannad. Yes. And the bed correct, Catherine. Yes, agreed on both points Curtis. Try to find a way to get no Ken. He'd do. Can't do it. That is correct. Katie absolutely absolutely racist, ugly. Great. Yes. Ugly and bad. I feel bad because my white dog. I don't brush him enough. And he has some times, you know, what he's also he just blind. I sits around looking his own dick all day. So I imagine he's just a bad person in general fuck you Sindbad racist. Holy shit. He actually is racing. I didn't name him. Name the rescue name, Tim, and I'm too cowardly to change. That's a good question for this podcast is my dog is my clearly racist. Name dog races this beautiful labrador named nigga. And I'm not sure. Response to. Someone actually did I call my black dog boy is that racist. And they did write it in serial killer fonts if anyone is interested. I'm sorry. Thank you for coming to the show. Shit. Okay. Here's a serious issue. One Katherine, I'm sorry. I'm targeting your particular line of expertise, chefs usually white and male making money from Mexican ties life, Cubans Japanese cuisine cetera. What we think? The problem is when they don't know. Why there cooking the food? They're cooking. If they think it's cool, and it makes them cool in, bro. Think they're amazing. I don't question anything. They do if they had any understanding of the broader cultural background of the food. They were cooking. Then that's fine. She's out of time. I'm afraid point. It was a nice answer. We just qualifying her for holy disqualified. Oh, I'm so. Sorry. So good. I should have explained rules better. Real bummer real. That is weird. Right. It's like, of course, people can master skills from cultures that aren't their own. But it's always nice to support people who don't brag about it. Because these two ladies open the Mexican food cart before and brag about stealing the recipes. And I guess the key for letting your business succeed is to tell people. He's jam now. No one will know. Also, just think like, can you just please hire people from that culture as much as possible? So that they can share in the money, you know, just like try to include people as much as possible. The two. Up for it. Orlands trying to win the woke Olympics for sure. They are. So I feel like if you give them enough I feel marching orders. They'll figure it out woke Olympics feels a little bit like that. Hanna Barbara shit. What it was just like three. And we are currently in the what's the one with all the weird bad guys in the dog doesn't matter. Okay. Katie a white person. Can shame non white perspectives. I've learned about without speaking for people of color. Shame. Let's share non white perspectives. I've learned about without speaking where people of color that is cutting into your time. Credit or credits. Do if you're going to quote, somebody say they say who came from don't just put it in. A cursive font on the back of your SUV. Email signature, right. Don't don't put people call it quotes in your Email signature. All right. I'll put that. Oh. That's interesting eighty has specifically keyed the car in the parking lot. So thank you a bonus question to the group. How many texts do you think Andrew has gotten on his phone that I'm holding while we've been doing this game? Seven zero very rude. He's very popular. He's got a whole text thread pop. Wanting his attention. And you thought no one wanted to talk to him. It was about four four know. The correct answer is four. Muhannad? This question is for you. If I can read it the head of the diversity organization at the huge company where I work as a black woman this powerful corporate person has five eight people who she hires four four for us four rush to her without are all black. Okay. We're going to take a short intermission on that. Representation is Meg neck Arendt racist against up to advance of male, lable conditioners of color. Honestly, the fact that people of color can understand this question is racist. I do like the basic conceit of our question is asking people to like ask about sensitive difficult things that we make fun of them for. Yeah. We are the cowards here. Katherine if I have to cut off a customer at the bar where I work because they're slurring stumbling and they called me racist because they are Asian. What do I say this my bartender last? That feels like an on me question. My bad. It was. Yes, it's racist. Oh boy. I think answer, right. Is it racist to kick out someone from your bar? Probably they're asking what should they do when the drunk person of color is like year only cutting me off because I'm racist. No. You're wait. What? Other things I I know one of these days, we're gonna learn how to listen, and then shit is good up pop. Aw. I feel like the Asian drinking thing is like a real if I'm gonna soapbox a little bit. Just Asian dudes, especially who get like real agro about the boost that they drink because there's a perception that we can't we need to fix our shit a little bit Asian who's who's with me. Okay. So this question is for Curtis a while ago, my friend, and I were having branch, and we're seated by a white couple who had a baby with them the baby spent most of this meal, making googly eyes at me before my friend, and I left one of the couple asks me to come to the table and asked if I would touch her baby. Someone yelled. Someone just went. Okay, asked if I would touch her baby I asked her if fuck I said, I could read it and I'm having trouble. I asked her if any other anyone any out asked her if any out give declined the offer the baby was cute. So I wanna head with it anyone. Oh anyone ever declined the offer? I asked her if anyone had ever declined the offer. Okay. The baby was cute. So I went ahead with it. Did I mention that? I'm black and that my friend is Asian was this then attempts to socialize child. Should I have refused? The offer. Oh my God. I did they not ask my Asian friend. Just a quick sidebar. Is there money to be made in the baby touching business? We're black and Asian. I feel like we go to business opportunity just post up at some white brunches and just. And I will touch your baby here baby or eighty five dollars. Yeah. I'm an oak at us after the channel. What do we think about this touch my baby by Mariah? Carey. I mean, this is just some really twisted literal interpretation of keeping touch with your roots or something like that. They have no idea what it actually means. Yup. Just most this. You'll learn the struggle. Oh, I like that teaching the baby the struggle. This is why why people can't have children. Stop. This is wild. How we really have gone thoroughly off the rails here. The most legible how do I have personal color interrupt racism at work without losing my job slash avoid going to jail. I asked this question to myself every day when they had a day job. How to go? I quit your job. After. Yeah. I don't know. What else you can do about that or evade the police very quickly? Yeah. All right, Kurt on the run from the cops angle. Yes. Quit your job run from the cops wait to the Christmas party when everybody's drunk. And then physically fight. The biggest aggressor in your. That is of course. Sharon, sorry. Katie practical advice, I think using the passive voice instead of the active voice, people feeling less defensive because it's not accusatory. So you could say something like, oh, it seems like equity was completely neglected in this matter as opposed to saying you completely neglected to consider the equity factors in the decision. Yes, absolutely newspapers. Do this all the time when they say like a black person was shot. It's like by whom exactly discuss shop came in. So passive way. That's actually a great tactic for de-escalating things. And of course, the answer. I'm going to give is leave our podcast running in your cubicle. Workstation at all time alone. Loan. You have anything else for them? Andrew. Hello gave us actual advice. Which is the best thing. We could actually do. Thank you so much. Thank you Portland for coming. Oh. Yes. Katie plan. Kevin Spiers one hundred though she gave this has been Llosa's racist. Thank you fast. Fast. And we're back. And we're back. We look for EFI. We couldn't find him. I kind of teas I promise that he would come and talk about the video game thing. But he's busy. He probably talks about it on his podcast deficit. Whatever or Twitter. I understood him and watch him, although actually righted let us know if you would watch us do this show on twitch. Oh, yeah. We had an idea about let's just workshop where ideas right here with us on Mike. We don't care. We had a dumb idea about getting on twitch and us just talking about which news items to cover and just kind of like doing soft dunks on people that sound appealing does that sound appealing enough for you to learn twitch. I assume you have to learn and no twitch while we're gonna have to figure nerds. Some version of something like that. I don't know we're we're trying to figure out what else to do with the show. So I guess right. End asterisk, very judicious. What you right? It just like the voicemails keep it under a minute of reading speaking of. Oh, no, thanks to our amazing guests on our live show. Finally when one hundred she Catherine spires, Katie win Curtis. Cook follow them, all they're all. Great fun follows lots of food stuff from Catherine lots of jokes and perspective from all the other people. We mentioned Colin three two three three eight nine seven two to three. Yeah.

Ep 1 | The Mueller Party Ends: NO COLLUSION

"What's going on everyone? I am Graham Alan and welcome to my brand new show. The dear America podcast. We have got an amazing show for you today. Get ready because every week we're going to be bringing you this brand new show. I'm going to introduce you to my friends and my beautiful wife every time we get on the podcast. They will be joining us as well. Elissa and Jake, my producer. You're going to love them as much as I do this particular episode. We talk about the bomb of the Mula report coming out, we talk about what free speech is really meant to be an is it racist to mispronounce people's names. Sit back, relax and welcome. So the brand new dear America podcast. Hey, what's going on? What's up? This is the very first. Dear America podcast fantastic day today. We'll actually I'm in a bad mood. I'm not gonna lie found myself in a horrid mood, which some people would say is good for ranting. I don't know how good it is for podcast. We're going to find out it's dreary today. It's raining. Drove nine hours yesterday. Drew? I drove twelve hundred miles in less hours. So that's ridiculous. Yeah. Well, everybody that's been following me on my other channels knows that we just got done with a brutal stretch of traveling rule and Elissa got to go with me a little bit on on the end not the beginning. So so we're going to jump right into it today. We're going to go into some other things is well, it's not Mueller day Mueller day was just the other day. However today is the first real news day Monday. Since the Mueller report has dropped. We're gonna talk about it. First and foremost. You told you in every contest there must be Jake. A loser winter. Yes. It feels good man. I I must admit it feels really good. It's not something that we didn't know. It's not something that we did not know there was no collusion. Now. You're were me were all exonerated today. Yeah. We were talking Dan Bongino said the other day that what was it March twenty four two thousand nineteen is the day that the corrupt media news died, and we'll all remember it. But let's jump into it. So no collusion. No, nothing, zilch. Not nothing. So today I like to officially declare it is the day that Hillary Clinton officially lost again. November sixteen election America is a better place for it. Jake. Does this cement Trump winning in twenty twenty? What do you think -solutely you'd think -solutely a link a lot of people are on the fence list agrees? I think so too. Let's get a poll going so on Twitter or Instagram. Just do hashtag dear America. And let us know what you think you think this guarantees that Donald Trump is winning the twenty twenty election. I say, yes, I think it was gonna win regardless. But I think this just further proves the miraculous -ness of his win in the first place. So he has been the media has gone against Donald Trump every aspect since day one he overcame probably the most corrupt media scandal in the history of our nation as far as elections go. And it was one of the biggest landslide victories of election in recent memory. Other than Ronald Reagan's second run where he just completely just decimated. But but yeah, I mean, it was a huge win across the board. Nobody thought he could do it. And to think that he did it in spite of all of this conspiracy against him. Right. And you know, everybody's for so long was pushing collusion, but it really was a conspiracy. And the since may of last year there were five hundred thirty three thousand articles written about the Trump collusion. So two seventeen. Let's talk about let's talk about the fact of all the money spent on this. I want to know where my tax money's coming back. I wanna refund check. All right. They spent between thirty to fifty million dollars of taxpayer money hard earned taxpayer money. I don't remember giving them permission to use my money to investigate the president. So where wh-, where's my where's my refund? Check. That's what I wanna know. Why do we have to do this? Good discussion forum in the wake of the Mueller report. Why do we have to just simply just whatever with our taxpayer money being used for whatever it's used for? Right. Shouldn't we and this is not a little say? Yeah. Hashtag, dear America. We'd love to hear your input on this should shouldn't we as taxpayers have a say. So whether or not, you know, well, you know, if we really want our taxpayer dollars to go towards investigating the president. Why don't you put that fifty million towards the wall? Yeah. There'd be a vote on it. And you know, they decide how many people want the investigation and we'd be back at square one. So we put it up for debate or whether or not taxpayer dollars should be used for the wall. But without asking at all what the taxpayers think are putting it up for votes and all this stuff. They investigate with Robert Mueller for how much money it cost to investigate president. So why is that is that the media and the? Mental double standards in play there that seems like it. I just don't get it. I don't understand who was it that was crying because they were so upset Rachel matter. It's oh, man. She's been burned. But even so why would you cry that you're president? John's communist. Works days or numbers. He works her. Yeah. Well, yes, that's twice. Okay. So she got burned about a year and a half ago now when the head tropes tax return release. It was huge big thing. Like, a countdown, right? Even did a countdown to the release of this tower. So exciting we're so pumped and this chick literally on air is reading this tax return and found out he paid thirty five million dollars in taxes. And she she literally has Stenner and go. Oh, can you? Imagine hating someone that bad you cry when they don't miss. Don't earn twice. I did not agree with all political stances on things, but I never like hoped. He would just completely fail because he is our primary. The first thing to be. May have wanted him. But I did not say for taxpayer dollars being wasted. Right. Right. Right. And if he did something good, we wouldn't you know, right? Right. Be upset like for me list. Talk about Obama. It's hard to think. Well, yeah. It is hard to say. But, but let's talk about the the Affordable Care Act with Obama which was Obama's legacy, which is a garbage now and Trump is pretty much torn everything down Obama ever. Did he said the standard for legacy as president? And now you've got Bernie Sanders running, and that's one of the main platforms of his is healthcare for all health care for all on its basic level is not a bad thing or an idea who is against everybody having health care. It's how you go about. How you go about the problem illegal immigration border security healthcare for all housing for all cell phones for all Andrew Yang stupid thousand dollar a year to every American citizen. It's not that they're bad ideas in principle. It's the fact of no one takes into account. What actually has? To happen for those things to occur who pays for it? Yeah. So open borders. Are you got you got every Mexican child and mama crossing the border and oh their babies in their families and just trying to five and all this other stuff? Not to mention the terrorists that are coming across fighting male age smuggling cocaine end children a lot of times, sex trafficking, and all Modi's, no one wants to talk about that. So let's just tackle the hearts and minds thing, which is what these liberals don't understand. They wanna pull this hearts and minds garbage morally superior partner, we met everybody in. And then what happens where do they go who pays for them? Are they going to get a job who's going to hire them? They have no documentation. Are they going to be allowed to vote? The Democrats won't that be. So where are they going to sleep? What are they going to eat what who's going to pay for their healthcare? We are few vim us. It's us. It's not the legals coming over. Because they don't have they don't have to pay taxes because they're illegals. There's no way to track with vote or not, but they can vote because the democratic senior sixteen year old sixteen year olds man. That's another one is is the Democrats are so desperate. There's so much talk about right now. I it's like Jesus knew that I just gave us all kinds of things. So the voting age. Yes, sixteen. I was very responsible sixteen. We all were listen, I had a job that. I was very did school. I'm own. I was responsible. I should not have vote. His job vote. Is you could buy guess, jeans and stuff? That's right is correct cash to get time. I don't care how responsible of sixteen year old. You are you are still sixteen. You're thinking with your crotch. If you're a man, I it's just. All right. I mean, I don't look at me. Like that Elissa lists rolling her eyes at me in disgust. Don't speak for the main news is common practice. Right. Every six seconds, a male thinks about sex think about that fact think about that. I go how not me from me. But I that is a fun eight or nine. Okay. Jake. Everyone is gonna wait knee about that about sex every six seconds except for Jake. But the point the point is this. Okay. I don't care how good of a teenager. You were you were still a teenager. Are you were easily swayed in any direction at all Nancy Pelosi comes out, and it's been rumored for a while that she was supportive of it. Right. Been rumored for a long time. But she comes out. And she says that she is pro sixteen year old boarding vote. Voting for warning age is going to be a good show guys. I'm so excited. I'm voting making up names. She comes out and says that she is pro sixteen year old voting because they're interested in their learning about the government in school. And because they're learning about the government in school. They should be allowed to vote because they truly understand which way which way the schooling in when we talk about government. That's that's like saying like say, you should be allowed to play in the because you're playing a coach pitch kid in high school is that interested in politics. Man like your kid. There are some. But again, we're talking about everyone versus again, the little tiny group who actually could probably vote. That's right. Light to redo laws, and they like to make up things as they go for the minority of situations. Right. They don't take into effect. Guess are there some children? Yes. I said children because at sixteen your child at eighteen your child, but legally you may be an adult. The point is the vast majority of sixteen year olds are dome. Gummed dum dum dum, dum, dum, dum dum. They are dumb. I don't trust the sixteen year old to do crap. Video meement said why sixteen year old shouldn't votes dude, setting that a rock on fire and setting his buddy about to skate down or whatever is Ryan. It was hilarious tarred pod. Eating feelings matter of one of the top ten stressors of millennials in two thousand nineteen. It's not losing your phone. It's losing your that is what using your phone charger four out of the hot things that stress out twenty five to like sixteen year old has to do their phone time with death phone is that not scarier said. I put a tweet out. And it said I'll tra- sixteen year old when you lower the enlistment age, and they can go to boot camp for two years. And then I'll trust their vote eighteen and everybody's main argument is cram that's not even remotely comparible saying someone can join the military at sixteen is not even compared to voting will. That's my point. Why in the world not why does that not the same thing? Well, and you can use to serve your country, and you can then usually be and they want you to be able to choose to vote on how our country is run. Why not the you can't even rent a U haul mega trailers unless you're twenty five years old Oxford has a me and Graham, we're married we were not twenty five or younger, and we hang it. One of our parent. I've been hall why two time war vet can't rent. We had children. We couldn't. Simplify make it all twenty one. You know, you can't talk to anyone that you can drink insurance. Yes. I'm out against it. I just I think that's what makes people like occasional Cortez. And folks like that and even Bego so dangerous is they are appealing to the younger graphic extremely young demographics. And they're doing it very well though, because they're playing at everyone's morality, what is good. And then they make. They are. And so they don't they don't really care about the politics are looks. But they're really doing a good job about. Oh. But this is the good and right thing to do. Also, they're running out of their their voter base. You know, people are leaving in droves. So they're having to find that the kid goes, the kids don't even know if you're young and not a liberal, you know, you don't have a here's the thing is even adult the house and Senate voting on ten twelve bills at Denny, right? Like every single day their voting on countless numbers of bills. Do you have any clue what they're talking about? I don't and this is my job. I couldn't tell you eighty percent of the crap that they're voting on in the house, and in the Senate, do you honestly think that a sixteen year old has any freaking clue what's going on at all all they know missing out on being a kid all kid for a little while before you worry about this kind of stuff the Democrats or the liberals are right or excuse me, the left. I just did. A speaking thing Charlie Kirk at ASU, and he did a really good job of saying. There is a difference between the term liberal and now the left liberal about ten years ago used to be firmly. Libertarian right. A lot of their prince of classical liberal. Yeah. Yeah. Classical liberal a lot of their principles used to align with conservatives. A lot of the things. Now, you've got the left, and they became the left under the veil of liberals. Right. And so they've just they've they've they've contorted or distorted or what however you want to name it every. Everything to where they have even changed the definition of the young voters ten years ago. Young voters were between twenty five and thirty five those were young voters now Democrats are realizing holy crap. We're losing everybody and even adults can't stand her. I would love to see the demographics of her audience. I bet seventy percent of the people that follow her are teenagers. Fifteen assan. Assan how about that? I would venture to say that that number of them are teenagers. And so the Democrats are realizing this. So the only chance they have is to try to change the voting laws try to allow highly impressionable minds and some people right now are going cram. Not my kid my kids smarter than you. My kid knows more than you ever. Will find your is smart and good for you? It has nothing to do with you as a parent your kids, either smarter. They're not. So I don't even know why you claim credit for that. But what I don't know if I agree with that. Oh, you don't. I mean, I couldn't read if without a really. Marital argument live on microphone ever hadn't in years. Bring it on. Okay. So here's my point to to do this. I'm not saying education's not important. I'm not saying that smart people don't need to be educated on actual things that are in our society, history and math and English. I'm staying you either are capable of understanding math or you're not you're either capable of understanding biology, or you're not that's just the way it is period. You're either a smart enough person to where you can do algebra without using paper or you're lying, and you got to get a calculator that someone else uses to tell you answer. Like, that's just that's just the truth. That's the way it is. That's our psyche. That's all I'm saying and your mommy just came out right there. I don't even mad about that. One second every okay, hashtag, dear America. Let's put this to vote of stash tagged your America on Twitter or Instagram. And let us know what you think do people can people be taught to be smart or people smart. Smart question. They learn it though, or they're going to be topped. They don't stupid forever. They don't know what they're answering because you to or interrupting hashtag, dear America. Let us know what you think. Tag Elissa is right. Why? Finnish navy? God hashtag, dear America on Twitter, Instagram. Let us know what you think can people be taught to be smart. Like, listen to think or are you smart and simply are taught things I leave it up to the vast voting of the American people because we believe in democracy. I'm caveat off of this into a story is everyone good with this. We have a choice. Four of smart people. That are not I'm going to read you a story. Are you ready? All right. I'm ready. This is about three Oklahoma City teenagers who allegedly planned to rob. A Bank using Uber as transportation police say the Uber driver who took the teens to the Bank Tuesday afternoon. Call to thirties after hearing one of them say he had a gun and was going to quote cap. Somebody police say a gun was found the teens at apparently Ardy arranged everything and had their Uber. Wait for him. And so that Uber driver called the police, and they were indeed cabinet people deserve a medal at this that a rat. That's the way I feel if you're going to screw it up you might as well, screw it up super big when he was questioned he said, quote, they were using their their Uber as the quote getaway car. You know, when you order Uber, and you could put like special instructions, you should bring me a pizza. Should've texted in there. Be like be quick on the gas pedal or. Fast or you pro plying dark alley. How do you feel about these things? That's funny. Again teenagers that goes to show. These are the dummies that the Democrats voting the type of people that would rob a store and get Uber. The Democrats want them voting if they're voting for them. They don't want him. Just for anybody scary is children grow up. And so if they get them young I'm saying, even if they get them young though that scary 'cause they're targeting our future generations. And that is what scary about it. Well, that's what age. Ages eighteen if they get him at forget most kids at eighteen anyways. That's true. I mean, that's what scary generate the ironic thing of this Democrats claim that they're pro young people in their pro young Americans and empowerment of young Americans. But what the Democrats are actually doing for young voters is absolutely nothing. Absolutely nothing. However, the very president that the Democrats are trying to convince voters against is the president is actually doing things for young voters. Did you know that on Thursday? I believe it was. Yes. Thursday, the president signed the executive order four drummer. Free speech on college campuses. Which really shouldn't have been said feel weird. It's a weird place. We're having to sign executive orders for conservative speech. That's what it is college. Professors are mad if you that genderless say it again is my favorite guide nipples alien, boys. Go out there and talk about and spread you know, I guess membership into their alien club. That's fine. You can have people talking about abortion, and how you can have those bore post birth infanticide. I can't even talk. It makes me so mad infanticide. You can talk about that all day long. You can wear vagina hats on campus. You can spread what appears to be period blow it on yourself on campus. And nobody says anything, but if you go on there saying that we need borders. Sixteen is too young vote. Donald Trump is a great president. God is God is the one true. God there two genders, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, where you're a racist and bigot and you're not. Oh, welcome here, or they put you in a very tiny room because they let you, but they put you somewhere where no one can get to you. Or so say sprout Trump signed that. But it sad that it had to come to that. So to caveat off of that, Jake, and I would love to hear your perspective on this. And we're really going to get deep into it. So everyone listening prepare your mind for the conversation is about to happen as you go down this journey with us, and you can always hashtag dear America on Twitter Instagram to let us know your thoughts, whether you agree or disagree. In fact, I challenge you if you disagree. So please hashtag that. And let it be known. So me Annalisa just attended a event which is the log cabin Republicans. And it's a really interesting thing to have because everyone knows religiously where Melissa stand we are Christians. We do believe the bible to be true. And what it says? But there is a big separation between religious views and political views just is like those sometimes they intermingle with each other. And as conservatives, obviously, we have a lot of Christian influence on our political beliefs. But when it comes to the black and white narrative of it. All right legalities of it all there is a very big difference between political views and religious views. Right. So to put it in basic terms of log cabin Republicans are essentially the LGBT community for conservatives. All right. So so they're they're lesbian, gay bisexual conservatives. Right. And all of them are not not all of them are. But that is like the main principle of this thing. And so meet Eliza. We're very. Humbled to be invited. Right. So so we were invited in because they like the message that we convey because it's very obvious are religious convictions. But we also understand what freedom actually means as in context to political. Right. And so that's what they talked about during this thing was you can't fight for freedom. True freedom of one group and not fight for freedom of another group. If you want a true free society now again to be clear, and we were very clear with the people at the L CR. This is not saying on a religious level that we agree with the lifestyle choices of things. But this goes to our earlier videos, where just because we don't agree with something doesn't mean that we should treat them like second class citizens or they don't have. Any rights, etc. Etc. So it was really cool to hear honestly, gay conservatives talk. It was very interesting because the only gay people that get the time of day on mainstream networks are the stream left that basically says that you know, you have to indoctrinate your children have drag Queen story time, and you know, you have to teach your children at age eight gender fluidity in school and all this stuff and the president even said in his speech is it fair to have a young woman. Not have the right to not disrobe in front of a man that now identifies as a woman in the in the bathroom and stuff, and it was really cool to hear them use rational thought and understanding to their to their point into their argument. Right. So Jake to throw it back to you. And again guys, this is a really interesting conversation. So hashtag, dear. Erica, your thoughts on this Twitter or Instagram and let us know Jake. What do you think about that? Will I don't like hypocrites in general, so people who claim to be Christian, and then don't live like a Christian, or who, you know, say certain things about certain groups of people. Right. You know, it's like I was at a church a couple years ago. And the guy was talking about freedom to pray in school. Like, we have our kids be allowed to pray in school all for it. But then he follows it up with you know, because they're letting the Muslims pray. And you know, he didn't want that he wanted just Christians to have parenting wanted to kick Muslim prayer out. I get what he probably thinks about Islam and all that. But if you want it if you want your freedom of religion for Christianity. It's just one of those things you have to let them have their freedom to so terms that someone said that I loved is you can accept and not agree to not agree. Then he was so funny. I'm not gonna say his name. He was just fantastic. And he was he said, you think? You have hard times try being a gay Republican. Oh, yeah. But anyway, it was it is to the principle of it because you can have different views, but you do you have to have freedom for all you cannot just near down to. No, you don't get that. Right. But I do who are you? And we don't know the struggles of being a conservative, you know, like. Israel again again. And this is something that that. It's honestly something that I didn't realize until I got into this world is as Christians, we should take a stand and influence politics as best as we know how I mean. That's just the truth. I don't believe in the church has no right whatsoever to say anything about what's going on in the political world. It was in my opinion, the biggest government scandal ever. And honestly, the biggest mistake the church ever did. And this is my opinion hash dear America. Let me know how much you hate what I'm about to say churches getting into the five. Oh, once three tax exemption thing to save money. All right, which I get. But what it did was it put a muzzle on churches? That's what it did. All right. It was it was too in the in the Vale of it. It was to make the church feel like government separation. But when it actually did was the government push the church out. All right. Okay. All you're a five. Oh one. Three charity organization. Now, you can't talk about those things. We'll take your five one three away, and it put a muzzle on churches, but back to the point now that I'm in the world of politics. You're right, Jake. You can't be hypocritical about what you deem to be freedom. Whether religiously you agree with it or not right, politically if you are pushing pro freedom for everyone race, sex, Jin, whatever you can't you can't have true freedom for one group and exclude another group politically, and it truly is again for all the Christians in a war. Roar right now, I am not saying in any way, shape, or fashion, and I have been very adamant and we'll continue to do. So that religiously I do not agree with that lifestyle. Religiously right, politically, that's the reason you can't go into politics with emotion. Just like you can't interpret the rule of law with the motion is not set any day because we're so divided as a nation right now guess who walked away as one of my new best friends the guy we met who was. A gay conservative because we agree. We don't agree, but we can accept and we we had a wonderful time. And it just fascinates me though. It's like, oh, okay. Well, you don't agree with me? Well. Thing that religiously we did not agree with that. And we did what is lost in today's society. We looked at each other. And we said, well, we agree on that. And we just and we we continued about the day and has wonder had a great night. And I mean, it was a good time in. So it was really a cool situation. Go into where to show in my opinion, that it is possible for a group of people that don't see eye to eye on every aspect of what they stand for still be able to be Americans still on the core values of things for freedom, etc. And the Republican conservative values get along. And I think that America could have learned a lot from that situation. And so it was really cool to be there. It was an eye opening thing for for me in a lot of ways. Because it does H just makes you think about the fact you can't have freedom for one group. Yes. Because that in and of itself is a poxy. And so it was cool to go about it. Now, don't ask me straight up. You know, if you if you belong to LGBT community and don't ask me straight up of what I think about, you know, same sex, marriages, etc. Etc. Religiously 'cause you're probably not going to like the answer because I don't I don't agree with that. Religiously but you are still in American and that is your right to. I mean, if that's what you wanna do then then that is your right? And like the guy sent and we won't do it. It is not it is not for you to accept or agree with it is for you to tolerate all American. And I thought that was very good point Elissa is telling me that we need to move onto the oh, no. I saw the look bay blitz. Deuce thing. We've been married for ten years. This is complete shift of subjects. That you just said a cuss word. This is completely. You brought it around you twang it out. I was lying. So is anyone heard about what Barbara Streisand did any money? Some celebrity reactions. Friday. Also, the mute report drop the same day. Okay. So this was fantastic day. The Grammy winner said she believes the sexual allegations made by Wade Robson and James safe, Chuck which is unless named anyway, basically, she says that it was absolutely very painful. He was very sweet talking about Michael Jackson, very childlike his sexual needs were his sexual needs coming from whatever childhood. He has or whatever DNA he has you can say molested quote, but those children as you heard say they were thrilled to be there. Goodness, both married, and they both have children. This is all quote. Did it kill them? I feel bad for these children. She concluded I feel bad for him. I blame I guess the parents who would allow their children to sleep. With blassie Ford. Cavanaugh? I think that. That's ridiculous. Well, Barbara Streisand has been in the news a lot lately she's offer. 'cause he's off her rocker. She's the same one that said that women were basically, brain dead puppets. That only did what their husbands only voted the weather husbands told him do. So now, she is basically saying she pretty much said that it was the kids on night asked for it. And she did ask for once. And then apparently, she apologized again. So I will throw that out there. Obviously, there is some truth to what you say. So you said that don't you don't you don't walk on a statement like that. But that's just that's a whiff for little and social media was brutal which it should have been. There's a whole I one everybody knows that Michael Jackson's a pedophile. Okay. If you're still handle, I don't know if he knew that dear America, let us know. Do you still believe that Michael Jackson was not a pedophile love, that's ignorant? Ignorance sweet in very childlike. I'm just saying it's weird. He didn't childhoods weird. No. I don't care. How much you love kids? I love my kids. I let other people's kids. Come stay the night at my house when I'm grown man and sleeping in the room with me because it's weird right? It doesn't make any sense. Of course, he was a pedophile period. And the parents, you're right. The parents should go to jail right now because they probably were paid money. Let's just be. Let's just be truthful about it. They probably were paid money. I'm pretty sure Michael Jackson did stuff with Webster McCullough Kokin too. Which is probably another reason why MacAulay Kokin is off his rocker right now. I'm not I don't know wonder if Michael would elect Trump would have been a trope fan, all I'm sleeping. Macaulay Culkin was the number one child actor in the world. And Michael Jackson was messing around with kids. You really think? I again, I don't know for fact, but I just know McCullough Kokin, it's got a lot of issues. Now as an adult is right. And Corey Feldman comes out and bust up the whole Hollywood ring. He's like, yeah. Everybody was touching us kids period. And I'm just saying it is a sick and twisted demented world there in Hollywood and Barbra Streisand's comment was really her real thoughts on it. She's come back now 'cause they're published. This is like you tanked this entire organ pretty much. If you got gotta fix what little name recognition, you have left. And that's it. She doesn't mean that she meant what she said the first time, which is really scared even have that mindset. I don't know it just baffles me like we just had actually opposed to it. Some of my social media followers took up for me because it was saying basically, our three children should have been aborted. Did you see that? I just don't understand the mentality of today. And maybe I'm wrong. I need to ask I guess older generations, but attacking children or even saying, oh, yeah. Obviously they were sexually abused. But obviously their own fault. What I mean? Roy normalizing. It wanted to be famous. It's it's baffling. It's mind-blowing. Speaking of like, Hollywood, let's keep it in that realm. Jake, Jake is Joe right into speaking of child. Listen. I'm starting to call her goat. Eliza Lana because I just hope that some differently than mine. I would like to point what's up with Alissa skin. She says if the report fully exonerated him or his family. He'd have it all out in seconds, wouldn't he? Yeah, he's not an idiot Elissa. So he's probably gonna keep you know, most of it in. Let's see Trump is come out and said, let them sit like Trump Trump care clarifying. Speaking about the muses back to the Miller report. Yeah. I mean is it Muller or Mueller? Mueller, Muller Nash tag. What do y'all think here America morning? L L or immune L mule or immu you're in you're in the south Jake news swing at benmaller. What about okay, I win. Bueller? Be ler. Same can't you? How do you spell? Bueller? Looking at right now. Bueller day off look it up. All right. All right. Let's see what the audience thinks hashtag. Dear america. Is it Mueller or Muller? I think Muller is immu L L E arts Mueller. You're sounds like. Okay. Okay. Go ahead Jiang. Whatever Bill Maher is it Mauer or mar. Now, our doesn't need a report to know Trump's at trader so even with all the evidence in proof in the world. You know, he doesn't need that. He doesn't need proof. He just knows. He's a traitor stick to their guns. Yeah. Yeah. I don't need to see bills. Terrible ratings to notes terrible show. Bill. Maher says is dumb anyways. So again, another another failing person that uses Trump's popularity to boost their own ratings. Michael, Ian, black. You remember that name haven't heard from him in a while? He said it's a bad day for people with eyesight, and I totally agree with him. When you see the truth, you have your eyes open. Sometimes it hurts a little bit at first. But yeah, you'll see the light. Now. Speaking of the truth. Let's let's go for my little point that I want to bring out every always bring fair and unbiased opinions absolutely into what I talk about. Okay. So this is brought to us by KU OWI public radio verified account real thing. All right. You rose by any other name would not be me the racist. Practice of mispronouncing Bill Mauer. So now, what a great cabinet is awesome. We were just talking about. You wanna talk about racism, Jake? I'm so sorry. How dare czar Bill she you rice racist? On the podcast any longer. We'll talk about free speech, buddy. Mel if you miss pronounced people's names. And this was for those of you who can't see this was a African American woman that come out and said this. So you're a racist you, obviously, hey anyone other than white people because you mispronounce names people really is the world that we live on the against to make his name. I know what listen you should go to court every single person. We could make a lousy. What is your? What is your who? Is that you typed in it always said my name, we're on Syria had to say the I should do happen. Yes. Was it president Tim apple should serve to Matt? Jio map hail sue him another caveat on the name thing. You know, mispronouncing Muller, and that's racist. It also came out that the whole Muller report was racist guy on CNN guy on CNN. He says he's a black man. And he said if this investigation was investigating a black family for twenty two months. They would have found something. Racist thing you've ever heard you said they couldn't find anything on Trump that clearly shows is white privilege. Yeah. On CNN. That's rough. And then they call him a dictator and they'll laugh, but it, but because it funny he's who for CNN to say racist things the past four or five months n n has said and allowed on air the most racist gusting things was the guy that said negroes can't read Conde west is again of negroes that can't read and then dawn on them and comes on and says Vegas threat to America's white might conservative Christian move. Yeah. Exactly. No. That's where that's where we live. So those days are over though, man. Okay. I got another one for you. All right. Was it? United Airlines come Jin say identify or or Mark as you identify ride as you did. That's what it says ride as you. Are gender neutral options are now available. What is it was the mix AmEx? What does that stand for does anyone really male? But with the x chromosome, so male female it literally. I don't know. I can't keep no at that say it say it like you mean it, and we'll just all believe escorted immense for this is going to make people mad hashtag, dear America listener. How much you hate this Emec stands for nothing because people that Mark x claim that they are nothing. They are non binary. They they're neither male or female will that mean? You're nothing at that point. I mean, don't you identify nothing? You can't say we'll identify nothing in that something saying they have to me something enough. It's like it's like a riddle. And that's we're only live in a riddle where you're thrown in jail. If you don't get it. Right. What happens though? Okay. You identify that. So what are they what is what actually happens if you identify unifies a toddler? So therefore, I shouldn't have to pay for tickets. No, telling what you said, oh, I say I said a tweet in response to that identifies a person should fi first class. That person as well. But somebody came out and said screw that identifies. Toddler that way. You don't have to pay for any tickets ever. No. I'm walking on this thing because I'm too. Yeah. I like the guy who was in his sixties identified as a twenty two year old because he was trying to get back in the dating game. But he lost though, he laws they gotta draw the line somewhere. So see. But that's my point he lost. Because he was not pro you can be whatever you want. He was doing it out of spite. Okay. But then he lost. So is that the definition between what's true? And what's not whether you believe in the cause you're fighting for whether you're trying to prove a point. What was the guy that identified as a woman for day wrestling, they are the weightlifting weightlifting women's reduced or the guy who ran track and beat everyone identified as a woman. Well, of course. Well, Dickey's world we live in. I think that that is the end of today's podcast. Yeah. That was good. I think it was awesome. I think it's a good thing. Ladies and gentlemen, we wanna thank you so much for joining us for the first ever of mini cone. Dear America podcast. Let us know what you think hashtag. Dear america.

Trump Derangement Syndrome Is In Full Effect | 10/5/20

"Path, grade is here on the please, radio. Network. Great W with this triple eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety-three also. At at least on twitter. So the president. With his Co. vid-. Spending, the weekend at. Walter Reed Medical Center. And actually did a drive by of some of the supporters that had gathered outside. which was. Kinda. Cool. Some didn't like it. Of course, some don't like anything he does so. It's impossible to please everybody. But now everybody's all up in arms over the fact that he didn't disclose the first Kovic positive test. Thursday, he took a test apparently. I am guessing it was the rapid test. and. He that was positive but he didn't say anything because they weren't sure they didn't want to start proclaiming a false positive when they didn't have to. So he took the more. Extensive tests and and that came up positive as well and so that's when he announced it. Isn't that the prudent thing to do? Shouldn't he wait and be sure before panicking people I mean, it affected the stock market it affected. World leaders It's a big deal if the president of the United States gets Kobe. Nineteen. So, he wanted to be sure. So. Now, the reports are kind of all over the place about his health he was supposedly his vitals were. I don't know. Not. In. A good place according to mark meadows. But, the next two days we're going to be critical, and then yesterday we heard he's doing so well, he might be released today. Yeah. He's been tweeting of a storm. This morning has he already Wow, so he's up in Adam saint good things. Yeah. Just mentioned if he's going to get out today, you know what? I didn't see that it was mostly just campaign stuff checked, but it's mostly like vote your 401k you know just. General stuff like. He's feeling pretty good. Sure does isn't it? Yeah and and he made several videos throughout the weekend. From Inside the hospital. So he he looks he looks fine much better than was reported. Say Friday night yes. Yeah. Friday night. They sounded like he was doing kinda bad poorly. But I. Haven't seen any evidence of that. Then they showed him at the little signing photo-op. They'd only happen two minutes apart. There were two signing photo ops that happened ten minutes apart. So what? And So he did one photo up and then he did one ten minutes later. So what S so? Bizarre. The things they pick up on and run with to be upset about it is an obsession. Crazy. It is so unhealthy because that whole photo thing you were talking about Oh my gosh he took off his jacket right and then yeah either put it back on and then took it off or vice versa another room and somebody who was all pissed off at Voca for having him do that like what it is. Truly a sickness it is. It's seriously it's a mental disease. And it's. So out of control. You talk about Covid nineteen being pandemic the wrong hatred. Yeah. The tedious. Syndrome is a thing. It is a thing and it's worse I think. As far as being widespread. Cheese I. It's Ludicrous the hatred they have for him. Pelosi got into a little bit of hot water because she I guess she said she was going to pray for him but he should have taken better care of himself or something like that. and that was victim shaming. Nice I love it when you can flip their own garbage. To, and normally I wouldn't come on the victim shaming but since they do it all the time. Yes, it's turnabout play find. It do the same thing back in their face. So you'RE GONNA? Victim. SHAIMAA. Getting, a terrible disease I. Don't think he really even has Govan Nineteen Michael. Moore doesn't think senators that. And there's that big conspiracy theory. He doesn't even have it. This is just to. Deflect. Attention from the tax. Situation. Okay Well. All right. Yeah. What did he? I think Michael Moore said something about like he's trying to get sympathy are you kidding me oh? Who's he gonNA get sympathy Orion ever about? First of all he doesn't need sympathy from the right he's already. He's already got their support and the left is certainly not gonNA. Give him any sympathy for getting covid nineteen. All they're gonNA say shit worn a mask. It's only. That's they got. You should've worn a mask. Why didn't you take it seriously Folks now Mr President. Shut up. Shut up. So the DMZ photo. And headline is just despicable to Rose Garden massacre super spreader event could put Skoda's NAM in jeopardy. Do, we have the the the screws. Is Yeah it is and there, and the headline is super spreader event could put Skoda's nomination in jeopardy Rose Garden massacre. Rose Garden massacre. Gosh yeah, they're suggesting that Mike Lee Being the he's Covid nineteen positive and heading up the committee that could affect the timing but then I saw something else that says no, they're on their their full speed ahead. Twelve, they can't delay it and that was the exact thing we said why you're waiting so long and I remember when Mike Lee was on with Glenn Back. Earlier, last week or something like that, and he's like he was less why why are you guys waiting? Anything can happen in two thousand, twelve October wealth why are you guys waiting right and something did happen got. Kobe twenty twenty strikes yet again. It's crazy because there's no margin for error the way it's all the dates don't have here in front of anymore. But at times out for October twenty ninth for a full Senate vote, you have no margin. Yeah the they've gotta get going it's it must stay on track and on time and just do it it Masa computer. We've been doing Komi and other. Hearings I don't think he's going to but if he were to lose then you're certainly going to scream and yell and kick and exactly scratch about doing the vote after you've got to get this thing gotta get done number third. Absolutely. Her so in addition to president trump testing positive for covid. Now we have Mike Lee. Chris Christie Senator Ron Johnson. I wonder because Johnson and Lee were both on Glenn Show last week did they get it from him down the phone line or? Did they send it to US UNCARING? Yes. Right. Telephone Kellyanne Conway also has it. Her daughter has it apparently, she came on Tiktok and talked about it. She's fun. She's fun girl. Yeah. She's a she's a joy to behold I have got to be proud of her. So Amy Conybeare in apparently had it the summer. If I heard correctly H. E. I'm not sure I heard that She's already had it. Yeah. So she shouldn't be in jeopardy this time even though she was at the super spreader, the Rose Garden massacre she was she was there but has already had it. So hopefully she's a little bit protected. She did have. here's some of the drugs the president is taking right now. Regina Ron. A RIM DISAPPEAR ZINC VITAMIN D For. Modine which apparently is PEPs it a SI FAMO- dine. Is Pepsi's. Google that I'm pretty sure. That's right. I. Heard that was a treatment. That is really weird. WHY PEPSI A Because that's. What is Blocking blocker. Yeah. It's an antacid. Melatonin. Aspirin and. DEXSA method. A method that one. So he's on eight different drugs, none of them hydroxy chloroquine. Interesting, that's fascinating. Why not on because he was taking advise on admission he was taking Hydroxy Clarkin awhile ago. But. Apparently, that's not part of it anymore. Okay. So that Dick SOM Metha-. To treat an inflammation. Now, they said that usually given to patients and this, this might be where the. More severe descriptions of how the president was doing over the weekend was because they gave him that I guess it's a treatment when it's further along but they might just be trying why wouldn't you give him a steroid now if that helps. With the with the lung situation, give it to them now. So it doesn't get severe I think that's what they're doing actually. Because I I. Don't know if you know if if you're not taking it long term, it's not gonNA. Stir. It's not GonNa hurt you much, right. Yeah. He made it a point to show that he was doing fine with those videos and that trip around the hospital supporters that was a big shot in the arm yesterday I think yeah. You got into a an SUV convoy and. Went driving around the street. Around the corner. Areas is waving. dixie supporters. It's kind of cool. And of course, that was terrible to do as well as we found out. That presidential SUV is not only bullet proof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack. The risk of covid nineteen transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures. The irresponsibility is astounding. My thoughts are with the secret service forced to play. That's where my. Doctor tweeted this out. Dr James Phillips, play that again because let's take a closer look as many pat heads were pointing out. please. Take a close look here president mass size got masks on everybody in the vehicle. So they're protected right? That's what we've been told that turn your mask. You're fine. So fine. The patient president trump is wearing a mask service agent masks there should be no issue of. SUV hermetically sealed. So. Okay. So I've been told that masks stop bullets apparently freight. That's So Dr James. Phillips. Are you saying masks don't work what he saves? You're saying? That's a good catch by pat heads all over the place. Yeah. he he was wearing a mask and so were the agents. So what are you crying about? Can't win. Win. You just can't win. If. You'RE DONALD TRUMP. You can't win with the left but of course, according to Michael Moore, he didn't even have it. Michael Moore says, is quote lying about having covid nineteen to gain sympathy? Democrats liberals the media and others have always been wrong to simply treat him as a buffoon in a dummy and a jackass. Yes he is all those things. But. He's also canny He's he's canny. This entire thing is a quote from uncle more star either you're a buffoon and a dummy or your candy you can't be all three. I'm sorry. He's clever. So he's clever and canny and a dummy and a buffoon. Yeah, that's bizarre Michael. He outfox Komi he ought Fox Mueller Muller He outfoxed twenty Republicans of the GOP primary in that did the same to the Democrats winning the white. House. Receiving fewer votes than his opponent. He's an evil genius Oh. Now he is canny. Clever. A genius. And a dummy in buffoon. Wow. Got, these people so twisted up. Exactly, the can't even make sense that that I think is is trump's big string. So great that the first time in my lifetime there's somebody that lives rent-free in the heads of liberals no, kidding. Yes. Yes. And and who plays their game better than they do know. I love it. They've met their match man. He's an evil genius and I raised the possibility of him lying about having covid nineteen to prepare US and counter act his game he knows being sick tends to gain one sympathy. He's not above weaponising this. He's losing the election and he knows it. It's not two thousand sixteen. He was hated in two thousand sixteen but he's hated even more now millions of Americans are on fire and on the verge of serving him up a major league, ass whooping and a record landslide defeat. So. He needs badly to totally change the conversation about this campaign. And he just has. Being the canny. Clever. Genius who is also a dummy and a buffoon. A lot of stuff I mean you're smart like that. Yeah. I. Think it hurts him no more than anything right I think Y- Yes having covid nineteen. Yes. Because of everything he said about it up to this point and he's kind of tried to you know minimize it so that there wasn't panic in the country. And is shown up at an awful lot of places not wearing a mask and that plays right in to their mass hysteria. So that's that's all that he would accomplish is for them to say see we told you should have been wearing a mask all this time and you wouldn't so I yeah I think it hurts him more than helps. Because sympathy as he can gain, he's looking game anybody on the left the little care. who was it that wished he in fact they? came out and said, they hope he dies. So many I've got that. Yeah. It's an Obama staffer who was also Hillary's national spokesperson. her name is zero regime and she wrote on twitter. I hope he dies. I mean. How despicable is that? He even Piers Morgan jumped into comment on that calling it shocking and shameful. Now. Peers had been a supporter of president for a while and then kind of lost him seems like kind of not as much after covid nineteen he didn't like the he was handling that and now he's You know they're so they're so out rage though they tend to push you back toward him. Even if you've even if he he lost you for a while the left will push right back toward him. So that was the thought from. Zero. Rahim I. Hope he dies. Isn't that beautiful? That's lovely. Thank you for your loving inclusion and your tolerance and. And just real. Beautiful sympathy on the left majority Piers Morgan called them out just said you guys are no better than this man that you loath yeah. If you right in doing to wish him ill. All right.

Great debut with us Thanks for being here triple eight nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety-three also pat unleashed on twitter John. Roberts. Remember how indignant he was last week. asking. Kelly mcenaney. About whether or not she or the president would finally condemn. Racism and white supremacy Fox News Guy Right Yep. Okay. Yeah. This is amazing because he was so pissed off. That people were upset with him. That, he came back at him on Friday. So this was later on Friday he had this to say president didn't know who proud boys were and Joe Biden just throughout the name If he didn't know they were why did he denounce them? Why didn't you say I don't know who they are he did say that John Maybe you should have been listening. He did say I don't know who they are, but I condemn save their if they're bad. I. Condemn Oh can you give me a little bit more information about them and then make a decision about it so this is this all remains very puzzling and for all of you on twitter who were hammering me for answering that quite for asking that question. I. Don't care because it's a question that needs to be asked. The president's Republican colleagues a mile away from here are looking for an answer for. Well John a clearly you do care no kidding or you wouldn't sound like a petulant three year old. Who was not invited to his best friend's birthday party I don't care I don't care I. don't WanNa go anyway I don't care. Surprised she didn't break into tears there he almost did. They turn the camera off. Air. Be The question has already been asked and answered over and over and over again, he has denounced the multiple times. See John. You. Should crawl back under whatever rock you crawled out from before you got to Fox go go back was CNN where was Roberts? ABC CNN? I'm pretty sure it was seeing. Check it out here that is. Ridiculous. and. Let's. Let's just show how many times how many times has donald trump content condemned white supremacy has he finally done this I mean he's finally he's Done it now in fact, Jon Costas. John Kosta tweeted over the weekend trump has finally condemned white supremacists case. So that was on October first what does that Friday? No Thursday Yep because he was doing entering, he tweeted that out tweeted that out during the Hannity interview that trump did by phone from the White House where and so the cost of says he's finally can then white supremacists and then everyone on twitter guess forgotten reminded his own stupid tweets. Let's check in over three years ago 2017 Mukasa tweeted out trump condemns KKK, and white supremacists common commenting on Charlottesville racism is evil. That's a quote from trump racism is evil according to Jim Acosta me Don't people want check your timelines how Jim Acosta? No the gym across to new that trump had already condemned a white supremacy. You know three years ago. How would he know it? Oh, wait he tweeted about it. That's how he knew it all. What did he know? So ridiculous and here are a few other times when the president has condemned white supremacy, etc.. White supremacy the NEO Nazis hasn't condemned darn thing. You've got David Duke just joint two, thousand, eight, a racist problem with. David David Duke and Robo calls around again the white supremacist movement supporting you. Do you have any words for that? Disavow David Duke Disavow Okay we're league at it. I guess about David this about David Duke all weekend long on facebook twitter. Obviously never let. So are you prepared right now to make a clear and unequivocal statement renouncing the support of all white supremacists? Of course of course I am. Joined Conference and they asked me the exact same question. I said I disavow. disavowed. Today. On ABC with George Stephanopoulos I- disavowed again David Duke is a bad person. Go I disavow on numerous occasions over the years I totally disavow that Lou. Klux Klan I totally disavow David Duke ultimately he got to the Klux Klan which obviously I'm going to disavow inject David Duke rejected David Duke, I've rejected the KKK the Klux Klan David Duke is saying to his supporters and followers vote for Donald trump white supremacists or saying do you want those votes I don't want them and I don't want him to say I want the support I, don't want any. White supremacist. By the way, I don't like any group of Hate David Duke Bounced his Senate candidacy. Claiming your agenda. Are you ready before you ask the question Newt? Gingrich said To repudiate this guy. And I do we built is that okay revealed. Done do you want white as over? You know I don't not at all his campaign is denouncing a show of support from the K. K.. K. 's official newspaper as in the Ku Klux Klan New York Times interview, he denounced white supremacist, he the Neo Nazis who support him racism is evil. And those who violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK Leo Nazis White Supremacists. and. I'm not talking about the Neo Nazis and the white nationalist because they should be condemned totally I spoke out forcefully against hatred bigotry and violence. Over and over and over at least seventeen time right that we just saw there. What does it take and on CNN ABC everybody knows it Stephanopoulas Wolf Blitzer Chris Wallace they all know he's done it. Why do they keep asking the question your own archives people? But I'm just never know. When you think he's finally going to. condemn. Geez. You know and it's it's to the point where even the proud boys are denouncing white supremacy. the leader, the Salt Lake City leader of Brown boys and their organization denounced white supremacy. Here he is doing that. Cut Three I will go out and say that the proud boys as a whole I will say this on behalf of the entire national organization denounced white supremacy We are in no way shape or form wisey premises. We have a vetting system that just gets those guys out of our. We could not have anything to do with white supremacy. We do not have anything to do with the Ku Klux Klan denounce those organizations. Yeah, and it's interesting to note. The guy himself is not a white guy. So it would be tough to call them. White Supremacist wouldn't it? Wouldn't they've got a leader who isn't white? By the way do you have a still shot of the guy? Clearly he's let himself go needs to get a workout in. Let's see the proud boys. Boys just give us a still shot a look that. Do. TWINKIES set. Sad how he's let himself go there. I mean, look at some point you you buy a shirt that's size larger. Yeah well, I see I see what you're up to their boy. He's out. He's proud of his muscles. Oh. My goodness less. They got together with him in salt, Lake City and they did a joint press conference and they said Look we've come to agreement on a lot of things We understand each other and and we can get along. It would be nice if we could all do that nationwide not just in in the. The Salt Lake City area. Let's let's all come together and maybe figure out that there's there's some common ground here. None of us want violence hopefully. By the way over the weekend part of the trump thing was somebody else somebody else obsessed with trump and the media? was saying how well he hasn't been tweeting a lot I bet somebody else's running his account now I think his situation is more serious than they're letting on. In the last. Hour News tweeted eighteen times. Is. Given rocket enroll in their at Real Donald Trump this morning eighteen times. So wow encouraging people to vote in. ALL CAPS WITH EXCLAMATION MARKS? I'm pretty sure. It's the president behind those tweets. Pretty important pretty important to to to do that to get out and vote. So I hope people heed his message there because if they don't. We're going to be really sorry. Come November V. It's not going to be good. Triple Eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety, three as if we're GONNA. Know on November fifth. Remember third. And yet, her liver four November fifth I know for a couple of weeks afterwards March twenty twenty one. This is gonNA. Get ugly. And Let's see. According to. What you got there this guy, this Guy Mike Ryan from the World Health Organization. One of the WHO doctors has some new numbers on the corona virus infection rates seven hundred and fifty million people have been infected. That's what there s percent of the world's population. They think that, yeah, we're up to ten percent of the world's population has been, which is point zero zero, one, three, percent death rate then if a million of die out of seven, hundred, fifty, million people. That's a really tiny death rate. Death rate that's much smaller than even the flu. Oh, much smaller light smoke. Yes. I I swear they. Fun Ron Right. Yeah. So they're saying now they estimate ten percent of the world's population has been infected with covid nineteen. That's seven, hundred, fifty, million we run with those numbers now because if we can run with those numbers than. You're looking at a non frightening disease trump office. Yeah. Then no, we can. No, we can't. That's I mean, the more testing we do the more people they find out have in fact been infected and we're doing a lot of testing and source some of the other countries now. And everybody's kind of ramped it up. So I think what they're finding is that, yeah, a lot of people get it lot of people get colds and Flus to. but this would be the election year flu. So. Going to get the the accurate numbers ever. No, that's right ever. That's right. In, and it's a real shame too because it is screwing up our society and it's causing us all kinds of. Yeah beyond repair of consequences that. We may never take care of. It's amazing. Triple Eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety-three pat unleashed on twitter more coming up. On tweets here academy you should elicit tweets. Most of the people I know don't like the president are wishing death on him. When was the last time? This was okay. Yeah I. I can't think of a time actually welcome to twenty twenty. Gear. Michelmore course accused the president of making up his diagnosis never trust a fat socialist. Like a skinny chef or a trainer with a beer belly they don't know what they're talking about. look fat don't call me chief tweets. So. Let me get this straight. The people that are hired to possibly take a bullet for the president. If the if the situation arises are endanger even though everyone of the vehicle had mask on all righty then from coop one. Aren't virtually all racist groups Democrats. KKK B.. M.. planned. Parenthood, yes. Yes. As a matter of fact That is pretty much the case isn't it? Let's see. Pat had cody cody done sentence of video of. A young Joe Biden? Apparently. His struggle with the English language is not exactly new not a new thing. Now, it's not a new K.. Here's this is an old video of him. That might surprise you because. Goes back as. It was a little something like this. Have you ever had a dream. that. That you you had you'll. You'll do. You want you want you can do so you you? You you want. Him To do so much you could do anything. Him Seventy. Got Through it. Yeah Joe. Biden. Old. Footage of him as a kid. Yeah. Yeah. So again, it's been happening for a while. Side Note. G J Herman points out. Twenty twenty. Yeah. Lots of people pointing this math problem out divided by six. Equals three Oh three three. Oh Joe. There you go. Yeah. That's true. Yeah. It's absolutely true. Absolutely true. Is it true? Is it twenty twenty doing it right now? Aren't you? I'm going to type it in two, thousand, twenty, nine, hundred by six, six, six equals. Three zero, three, three. You go to Joe Go Rio three three Oh. I twenty twenty, you need to I got a calculator over here divided by. He's going to do that equals three, oh three, three, oh, three, three, zero, three, three, zero, three, three, zero, three, three. You gotTA. Stop agree with me. Go to Joe Three Oh three three three, three, zero and helped me. Right. You're you're welcome. Go there and help him in the fight. Isn't that fascinating three point? All three three. Oh If, you just carry it to that decimal point. That's fantastic. How Weird is. Weird. It's an interesting coincidence. Is it not? Coincidence. A coincidence shirt is. Wow good stuff. Also, another video for Joe here implying that he served in the military didn't get to this last week Jess Hell. Bent confirm. By Mobile. Sources. Those of us, those of us who sign up put our country on I'll put our lives in the line or veterans as I mentioned earlier. Wait what those of us. Did he just say those of us. Signed up and put our our lives on the line our veterans as I said earlier. There's ventured firm by multiple sources. K. thinks those of us those of us who sign up and put our country. Yano put our lives on the line, our veterans as I mentioned earlier. That is amazing yeah. while. It's Now if again, if that's trump saying that. Oh. No problem seeing that video. That's actually the first time. I've I've seen that yeah. No, and he did it last week. Nobody's playing it. He's playing that. Trying to steal valor what what do you mean those of us? That is crazy. Then, apparently Joe had a little trouble number again over the weekend over the weekend some never issues step up and passing another economic relief package right away. So painful cuts don't make this crisis worse. You may remember John when we went through this the great with the that the single most significant recession in American history short of a depression sure Barack, and I came into office and we were inherited the bush. I was asked to manage the Recovery Act, which was eighty billion dollars. Eighty billion excuse me eight, hundred, billion dollars eight okay, eighty no, eight, hundred, billion. No. Eight hundred million billion. Trillion dollars eight hundred thousand million hundred dollars three, zero, three, three dollars. Seriously I think I think incoherent Joe Biden. As a kid made more sense I'll absolutely absolutely the kid is smarter than this that saves billions of gallons of gasoline. Billions of billions of two point two point three, billion dollars worth of five hundred billion dollars in savings right to point something to building. No idea no idea what I'm saying at all now. Because care and. School or sure not no. Not The camp it wasn't a document. Not Clear clear. Going nuts. Medical School. In. Guatemala Door and and and Ecuador insane. Honduras. Folks eliminate one tax loophole right out of a trillions billions billions for. Four hundred. Four hundred billion out of about A. Hundred. million. Trillion trillion four hundred dollars even it so much. Yeah. As by the way, it cost about seven hundred and forty million dollars. Million billion. trillion. JILLION dollars and this this year Outbreak okay. is taken more than one hundred year. One Year is look in look. It's incredible man. More lives than any other year man for the past Hundred Years Dude for the past Hundred Years I. It's like one hundred years of years. Can we go back to that clip? Where he goes. He says, look I'm not going crazy or I'm not going nuts. US that yeah just spoke Dr. On healthcare. The medical school or not I guess. against. The, medical school. Willing to be clear I'm not going nuts. Well. He knows. He knows he's got a problem there and he knows what's going to be said because he doesn't know where the hell he was and he admits it he doesn't know worry was. So he has to try to. He he has to try to sort of alleviate. The fact that he doesn't know where he was doing Disney's mines by saying I'm not going crazy when they know he is it doesn't even know where he went to doesn't he right Delaware State? And trump called him on that. And then he called he said he didn't say that. The Delaware Dilawar state thing I don't know see if we can find. Was 'cause I can't remember was it as we? Debate video video. Yeah. He's at a Black College Delaware state where he talks about how he got his start there. Yeah right and then during the debate, trump called him out on that. And he called Trump Aligarh he said trump was lying about that. No. I never said that what do you mean didn't say it? Yes you did. Of course you said it. By the way Kyle Rittenhouse. Is Planning to that's the kid in Kenosha who shot to people, and when you look at the video, there's an eleven minute almost like a documentary that was done on that shooting. After you click through the four hundred, three disclaimers from Youtube, it's hard to get to because they they try to dissuade you from finding it but once you see it pretty convincing that the kid was defending himself sure it was defending his life question. They were coming after him and he shot them to save his own life. So an attorney, for Kyle Rittenhouse. Who is accused of killing two protesters. has announced plans to sue Joe Biden and his campaign for libel after he tweeted a video suggesting the Illinois between team is a white supremacist. Why is everybody. Who isn't for the rioting a white supremacist interesting. The, Democratic presidential candidate wrote in his tweet, which contains the fifty second clip. There's no other way to put it. The president of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night. The Post refers to a question Fox News host, Chris Wallace asked President trump during the presidential debate about whether he was willing to condemn white supremacists militia groups. And to say that they need to stand down and not to add to the violence in a number of those cities. The teens lawyers have argued that he fired in self defense, and again when you see that video, you're going to I think you'll be convinced he was self defense and we will shortly tweet out that video. So when you have eleven minutes later today. You will want to check that out. It'll take a few minutes to get to so might be a little more than eleven minutes but. You jump through ten of the. Third clicking through the Youtube disclaimer and then it's just a one minute video. Would told Fox News on Wednesday that he planned to sue the former vice president and his campaign on his client's behalf. As of Thursday morning, Biden's tweet had garnered more than fifty, thousand, Fifty, seven, thousand retweets and one hundred and seventy seven, thousand likes. On behalf of CAL Rittenhouse, I shall sue Joe Biden and Biden Harris Campaign for libel. That's what it's GonNa take it's going to take. Some of these people losing some money like CNN. Like CNN did to face from. You know the Catholic School San men. And and people like Kyle Rittenhouse who are not gonNA. Put up with the with the liable that they're getting. From the likes of these left wing candidates and the left-wing media. And it shouldn't put up with it. Maybe that will dissuade them from saying these kinds of things in the future I doubt it but maybe By the way nothing is off the table according to the Democrats if they get control Chucky Schumer had some interesting things to say about everything that is still on the table if it comes to. Joe Biden being elected president. Here's what he had to say they have ruined the Senate. We are using all the tactics we can to slow the thing with food adding if the Senate becomes a democratic majority adding DC in Puerto Rico as states ending the Filibuster I would believe me on DC and Puerto Rico particularly Puerto. Rico votes for it. DC already has voted for it wanted love to make them states, and as for the Filibuster I I'm not busting my. Chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing we are going to get a whole lot done and as I've said. Everything. Everything everything is on the table including making Washington. DC. At Puerto, Rico states. Like to have a couple of really super liberal states added to the US. Added to the Union that's great. Zoom. You kids who are younger may not recall the first two years of the Obama Presidency two, thousand, nine, two, thousand, ten when Democrats did have absolute power in DC, all three branches and They got stuff done. Yeah. You ever heard of Obamacare I have okay. That's just one of many things that see when Democrats have power. They do something they sure do because they don't give a rat's anus about the Republicans in how they feel and whether or not they're going to whine and complain about it. They don't care and that's what he just said really because everything's on the table. Everything's on the table stacking the court. Making extra liberal states part of the Union. They're gonNA do everything. They possibly can ruin this country they've been trying for a long time, and now they see that they're almost they're they're right there to fully complete the fundamental transformation of the United States of America. Don't forget Biden still daring the debate. Did Not say no when he was asked trump. Are you GonNa Stop the court are you going to? Say, no. No because he did he intends to and what was. The response was was an honest responds I. Don't want that to become the issue. Yeah I bet you don't right. Because you lose. What a weird thing for a presidential candidate to say, I'm not GonNa, tell you my position because that people talk about it then? President Man. Yeah. We need to know where you stand on that. If. Any Coney Barrett. said that about everything when she's She is going through the nomination process. What do you think they'd say, yeah, I'm not GonNa talk about that because that's how people talk about. If I say my position. Yeah Roby wait I'm not gonNA talk about that because that's all that'll become the whole issue. So. I'm not gonNA talk about it. All right. Just remember when you go to Moat Joe Biden refuses to tell you if he would stack the court fundamentally transform this branch of government. And he also refuses to reveal who would be on his list to be a Supreme Court justice. Yeah. Those are two really important things that we should probably clear up before submitting a vote for Joe meanwhile claiming. A woman's right to choose on the ballot this time. Well? No, it isn't because it's not even before the court right now what are you talking about? There's no Roe v Wade challenge going on right now. So it's just a complete lie that it's on the ballot at all. But. Let's hear where you stand on that. Will you have a litmus test and you know he will, but they won't ever say it but they've got a litmus test for whether or not their nominee would be a pro-abortion. Of course they will. You can't beat Democrat, you can't be a supreme court nominee a Democrat without being pro abortion and they know it and it's been that way. For a really long time. So. On one side you can't be against Roe v Wade and on the other side. You have to be for it. Have to be. As a condition of you being nominated. It's just it's. It's amazing that they get to have. They get to have it both ways. Triple Eight, nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety, three meanwhile people who support president trump continued to be discriminated against we got an American cyclist who was suspended. From cycling. For posting a pro-trump. tweet. good stuff man Quinn Simmons. He was the two thousand nineteen junior road race world champion responded to a tweet posted by Jose Bean. Dutch cyclist in a statement Simmons Cycling Team announced that they were suspending him until further notice regrettably team Rider Quinn Simmons. Made statements online that we feel are divisive incendiary and detrimental to the team professional cycling. It's fans and the positive future we hope to create for the sport. He will not be racing for Trek Sigfredo until further notice. So what happened? What was the horrible thing that he said we'll tell you in just a minute. Gray. Straight to have you with US thanks for being here. Blake nine, hundred, thirty, three, ninety, also at PAT unleashed. From look fat. Trump's already fired off eighteen tweets this morning it's more than that. Yes. Should probably get a count on that home. Yeah. That was just an hour our. Find I'm guessing Biden is still tucked away in his jammies. He said he doesn't even get up until eight. And some days he calls it a day nine. Yeah. That's a fact is, is there any question about who we'd want to answer the phone in the Oval Office three am not someone that can't get out of bed. That's right. Amy. What's her face tweets I? Think the reason Biden struggles with number so much is because they represent an irrefutable truth that he's allergic to uh-huh. Okay. Richard S Lightner tweets Biden talking is Biden talking is a verbal version of someone trying to juggle for the first time and the tennis balls all end up going all over the room. Reality check congratulations to the young man that is suing Biden and his campaign. The next step is suing every broadcaster that reports misleading or misleading information or lies. See we were talking. A cyclist thing does cycle is yeah who got. Kicked off his cycling team incredible and the. tweet. Honest it was pretty agreed just think yes I I mean it was you can't you. Can't get behind someone like this. He did. No I mean, it's despicable. Not only should the kid be suspended knee already was from a cycling team, but he should be put in prison. What kind of prison like a Regular prison prison, still regular prison. Maximum security. Solitary confinement where you and and a place where you gotta go break rocks all day. So a hard labor prison would probably be more appropriate actually being of gentle because this is bought about it again for a minute execution. Yeah. But you're giving him don't give it A. Duty to continue to breed least. So what what did he do that? That warrants such a harsh punishment, pat well, when Dutch journalist. Jo Say being -ture posted on twitter that she hoped for her American friends that quote this horrible presidency ends. and. If you follow me and support trump, you can go unquote. So, what he did was This young cyclist, nineteen years old. He should know better. What God what did he do? He replied by writing by With an Emoji of a hand waving but the hand. Was Black. Oh. Created or skip the race of the hand he did he used in a mall. All said did not represent his race Quinn Simmons order you thinking. So obviously, he's gotta go gotta go. So somebody said apparently you're trumper. He tweeted that's right. That's right and then he used he tweeted that's right. The He tweeted. That's right. But then he used an American flag emoji to? No Sir. Yeah. And some users were offended by Simmons, use of the Black Hand Emoji and the American flag emoji. So he typed. He he he were by. Hand, and then he did then then he did the American flag and that's right. That's right. So he said by. And that's right. Are you rethinking your your light needs to? He needs to die. He needs the death penalty. Swear on the world man on believable. How is this possible that you can suspend a person for something like this? Wow. Well, how can you let them live? I think is the more appropriate questions degree. That is. How we are in hell, you can't even say to a Dutch reporter. Okay. See then by all right yeah I'm supporter I support our president. Sorry. No you can't be. Sorry. Your Life is just over you might as well flush down the toilet now at nineteen. He really have been given crap for just saying by and admitting he was a trump supporter. Why is gone now then? Then you mixing the Black Emoji Han and that just they think, oh, that's a cherry on top there. Yes. Just, Yup Madness man now, you've appropriated the hand of minority. Rights online way in somebody else a PAT head. I forgot what video it was. I I don't even remember now, but it was one of these stupid be l. an in your face at a restaurant video and all these white people standing around doing the black power signed and and somebody was like So why are they allowed to appropriate the black power symbol good. They're a bunch of pasty whitey standing around this restaurant in really good question. there. An answer to it there's really not is there. I guess because they're supporting sure 'cause they love the cause and the cause is all that matter. The other answer is that we are in hell. Is is possibly as possibly. Could I mean that might have something to do with it. I'm not sure. No, it's a fun year and keeps getting more and more fun It does. We do have the Delaware state comment from Biden where he was talking about the state, the institution that he started in college and the the the Black College. Yeah. You're you went to predominantly black college I got started out of. Our State? Delaware state here. Okay. got started at. My folks all the sides. The fact is. A species trouble financially. That's the fact and he started there and so their near and dear to his heart. Historically Black College is what HBO stands for and he went to one. And and nineteen, what six to. Eighteen sixty. You know how old is Pretty old being real here pretty old. So the university, Delaware State University of course quickly confirmed that right they said he got US started did the opposite said no he? He never went here so. Even they Even they said no on that, and then when trump called him out on it, it was that night or the next night at the debate. Biden light about it. Check this out he panicked or he just looked at the stock market one of the two because guess what a lot of people. And a lot more going to unless he gets a lot smarter a lot. President. Did, you use the WORD SMART? So. You said, you went to Delaware state, but you forgot the name of Your College. Go. To Delaware state you graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest class don't ever use the word smart with. ME. Because you know what? There's nothing smart about you jail forty, seven years you've done. Great stuff. Yeah I really wish trump would use the line. He used one time during that debate I. Wish that would become a campaign slogan. I've done more in forty seven months and you've done in forty seven years. It's a good one. Yeah, and it's true. So. Yet. He should use it early and often. Now. What's really sad about this is that apparently Biden's numbers doubled after that debate I you know he did not win that debate I. Don't know that anybody wanted. It was just A. It was cluster fund and Muster Fund we all know it, and so the first debate did not really go well. But for Joe, Biden to add seven points to his lead and be up by fourteen now I don't understand that America definitely lost. That night for sure in heads actually want to turn the cluster fund phrase into a t shirt t shirt idea I I. Could get it done, but there's one individual Nathan Nichols. So when is the an evening of Cluster Fund Shirt Lloyd be available? Actually, we are talking about some form of cluster fund being so rod came up with. An evening of Cluster Fund featuring the hassle of a president trump in Joe Biden. But we will try to get something Like maybe just joining the cluster fund, you see the pingree unleashed option. So we'll try to get something like that in the store. but yeah, it's These debates and now you know the next presidential early. So you've got the vice presidential debate is Wednesday night of this week right? Or is it next this? Oh, my goodness. Yeah it's this week. Oh. Boy That'd be fun. Cluster Fund. So and an October fifteenth, which is exactly fourteen days from the diagnosis of Covid for the president. That's when we're supposed to have the second presidential debate. That's GonNa, be a tough one to make happen. What is GONNA happen I? Don't think we'll have it. I don't think there's going to be a second debate either they'll be not at all they just you think they'll skip ahead of the third one or do you not sure. We're going to do any more debates I think they've found a way out and I think they'll take it. That's what I'm afraid of, and we need a second debate. He needs to get back in this thing and get on top of it. 'cause I I'm not sure that happened. Well, obviously didn't happen to to one by two to one people think. Biden won that debate. I think by default. Just, the fact that it was such. Cluster Fun Cluster Hung Yeah I it's just too bad because there was a lot of opportunity. Exactly. That's the problem advantage of. And I think he did himself disservice by talking so much over Biden even though both of them did it. he is the one who got most of the blame and Chris. Wallace gave him all the blame. pissed me off. We're less than a month out from election day. Obviously some people will be allowed to vote up to two weeks after. Michigan we're looking at U. you have a prediction on.

Pennsylvania and Florida are are Florida's not turning I thought trump was up in Florida drifting toward Joe Now and. Since the debate. More. Yeah. Really. I'm scared pat you hold me. I Shan't be holding you I thought I could get him to. Know. So I'm very nervous. I'M NOT GONNA land to I don't like it and A month out now, who was it I saw a headline to Dan Fox early this morning that. Oh. Okay. It was Beto O'Rourke says that Texas Okay Texas is Biden's to lose. That can't be true right I. Mean I haven't seen. I haven't seen the actual poll from Texas for a few weeks. If Biden, it's Texas.

Are, you gonNA play an animal video? No. Sports video, but it's also historic. This is confirmation. Yeah. by Lou GEHRIG. And his actual voice. This is actually Lou gehrig confirming that Babe Ruth did call his shot. Yeah. For almost one hundred years. Now, there's been questioned. Babe really caller shot in the thirty, two world series I think it was no way and somebody's doing a book They're researching for Lou Gehrig in the unearth the audio from NBC Radio Never before heard audio clip listen to this. October six, nineteen thirty two NBC radio. Fleischmann's scour. The leading exponents of my favorite sport, a local boy who made good on a big way the man Chicago pitches love to hate and salute Gary that brought up from take a bow ladies and gentlemen. This is Lou Gehri-. Thank you rudy and good evening. Ladies, and gentlemen. You'd evening I would like to say a few words on my favorite topic. That said topic being agenda by the name of George Herman Ruth. Jonah. Man. The baby I got back to town and hour ago from an ornate fishing trip out on the south shore of Long Island sound. Between Week Fish, the gangs, a lot of reminiscing about the series and everybody agreed that the high point of the whole wage was baby homa in the fifth inning of the third game out in Chicago Hall. I've played a lot of baseball. But I have never seen so much nerve on display before. They had two strikes on him. There were fifty thousand come fans giving him the old bronx cheer. And the cubs players were riding him from the field. So what does he do? You stand up there and chose the world that he's going to stack that next one and not only. What he tells the world right way, he's going to suck it into the center field stand. A few seconds later. The ball was just where he pointed in the Centerfield stand he called his shot. And then made it I. Ask you what can you do with a guy like that? Out Is that that's pretty cool. That's very cool. It's the only contemporary audio account of Ruth's called shot known to exist. Gary was actually on deck when Ruth hit the famous homer off cubs Charlie route that's that's really something and then Gary, hit the next pitch for Homerun as well, and then sadly a few years later Lou Gehrig. Bizarrely came down with the don't Lou Gehrig's disease I mean what are the odds that a guy named Lou Gehrig? Yeah. Would contract Lou GEHRIG's disease scenic. I. Frankly, I guess. He was just predestined. I don't know. Really Weird though. Really really really isn't it I mean don't you think that's amazing I mean what are the odds? Right? What are the odds they're bad. I would think they're astronautical but apparently not you would think that. But no. Triple eight nine hundred and thirty-three ninety-three. You also think that Uncle Ben's might be a pretty innocuous named have for your rice, not this year but not now no. Mars will change the name. So Mars owns uncle Ben's. Wow how about that? Mars will change the name of its bins rice products to Ben's original and drop the logo depicting aide Chicago head waiter as part of the company's previously announced plans to create a more inclusive brand. because. There's nothing less inclusive than somebody named Uncle Ben who sells rice I guess I. I don't get it but for some reason, people are upset by it. Apparently or someone was maybe one person in the world I don't know. The revamp Ben's products which featured the same blue font and orange packaging will hit the shelves next year twenty, twenty, one, the transition from Uncle Ben's Ben's original comes amid the course the broader movement about racial. Equality. Nothing, says inequality like Uncle Ben does it. No. Not Having a black man on a box of rice. I honestly don't understand the problem there. Maybe, somebody can explain it to me because I don't get it. I really don't understand after we after our society eliminates black figures on food products, labels, and stuff like that give it a few more years and the cry will be, where's the black and minority representation on food labels and prime where's that? Will we eliminated a member because they were racial stereotypes in all of those food what? You want. In June. The food companies that make uncle Ben's aunt Jemima. Cream of wheat wait. What was the problem with cream of wheat has got a black dude on it. So there's your problem. And Mrs. Butterworth's all said they're going to retire or rebrand their products. We don't even know what Color Mrs. Butterworth. Now she's like shaped like A. A bottle of. Bottles. And I guess because of the Syrup is of a dark color. Get. Out. Wow we're. We are. Well, we're now this is madness man everywhere every. Crevice of society is infected Mars Rice brand was named in the nineteen forties for Uncle Ben. A possibly fictitious black rice farmer from Texas supposedly renowned for its high crop. It featured the face of Frank Brown head waiter at an exclusive Chicago restaurant who posed for the Uncle Ben's portrait according to an archived page. Now, I understand Uncle Ben's family. An Aunt Jemima aunt, Jemima's to both of them loved the fact that they were on the packaging they liked it. I don't think any of the family had any problem I know that for a fact on the Jemima Front Glenn Beck Down The hall here he tells that story or he told it about you know a couple of months ago. But notice that last line you just read they had to go do an archived page on the Internet to find this story about the about Uncle Ben. The company said it didn't even know if there was an actual uncle, Ben. This is ridiculous. There's no place for anything in this world that hints at Social Injustice though a company spokesperson said. The privately held food and pet products. Company also will partner with the National Urban League and donate two million dollars to a scholarship fund for aspiring black shifts. The company will donate another two and a half million to educational programs and food access efforts within the community of Greenville Mississippi where the products have been manufactured for four decades. All right. Well, good good good. Good good. That's good. That's really what do you think I think it's good. Yeah. Yeah. I think. We'll good you know. Also. Berkeley is the first city in the US to ban junk food in checkout lanes. Berkeley is gearing up to become the first city in the nation to ban junk food from the checkout line in grocery stores in a unanimous vote last week the Berkeley City Council. Passed the Healthy Checkout Ordinance. Okay if the city council. Has the authority to tell grocery stores what to put in their checkout lanes. As anybody have a problem with that in the United States of America 'cause I do. I do I, give you the finger. Like my thumb to the same council. Come up but no down down. Thumb down came, but that's I mean hate the. figure. I mean, that's not really technically a meager. Okay. That's true. So really there's only a one in four chance that you're talking about. What finger we're going with we're number one. Let me just tell you this in a unanimous vote last week they passed the Healthy Checkout Ordinance and come March Twenty Twenty twenty one. When the measure is set to take effect large grocery stores in the California City will be prohibited from selling food and beverages deemed under thirty in a three foot radius from the checkout on. Now, there's going to be like circles around your register in Berkeley. You do not have the authority I'm sorry. No. You could stick that somewhere. Because we're not doing it. Yeah. It's not a it's not really a ban. It's an John co-sponsor of the Ordinance Council member Kate Harrison told Fox business. What we've discovered is that this law enforces good behavioral economics and facilitates better choices. They know better than you do oh, my goodness they. are, out of control. Yeah Well with the food right there. You're powerless over it, and so you need the progressive. City Council to tell you no. No we gotta take that out of your sight so that you don't buy that kind of stuff because you don't know any better right into by we have said it time and time again there the rancher we're the cattle that and I am waiting to be proven. Wrong. Other than the choice to murder a baby in the womb where does The freedom of choice they don't it's not at the register now. What they'll do instead of the checkout line is set up a little abortion booth. Therefore, you if you're pregnant, don't you dare. and Go ahead and take that baby out of you're. Right they're giving ideas man 'cause they know I'm thinking no on images in my head not good. This ban will eliminate items that contain more than five grams of added sugar or over two hundred and fifty milligrams of sodium per serving Adams like chips candy bars, soda or other processed foods will be replaced with healthier. PITA. Chips comments health bars. Milk no now into torture and Berkeley. Come on why don't you just want to set a set up the registers in the produce area? Seriously that will hurt the grocery store sales and I would tell them to stick it. Because I wouldn't be doing that you can't. You don't have the authority to tell me where to place my food items in a grocery store. You'd have that authority. How is nobody. Opposing that well, it's Berkeley so they probably love it. In. Berkeley, they're probably, yes. That's a good news for looking out for me and my health healthy choices. Imus Oh checkout line that's going to be great. What the citizens of Berkeley or probably on board with this from the beginning, and they probably had city council meetings you come and voice your opinion and people. What would you like to see in the checkout lines at the Berkeley Grocery stores and Hamas was probably the top of the list probably pita chips with second yes. What do you? What do you think else was on that list probably Avocados and of course in Berkeley I gotTa have your. Health Oh yeah. Again ill milk but definitely, not some cattle drive into the data organic milk though indefinitely not from cows not from animals like like. Do. So milk humans are the only species that drink the milk of some other animal. Right. It's probably because humans are about the only ones that can make that happen. Okay. But but that's a fact and that's what they'll tell you. I mean, that's why they'll tell you. It's unnatural for us to be doing that I just know it's just that we can other people can't homogenize the milk that comes from other species. Hey, we can, and so we do I don't know if it's from growing up with far side cartoons in my in my world but I'm matching a cow now in a field standing up and holding a little calf in feeding it a milk bottle with. Milk for you. Yeah that's probably not going to happen. Yeah. Because you know why? Why? Not? Because it's it's a natural because they can't they can't do it and that's why they won't. So. A Little Yak Yak. Information for you. That's good. That's good. Yeah we are still. I mean. We have some abilities. There's other species don't hesitate to say we're still the superior species an barely, but it's It's it's it's a photo finish your. Point not only the only species that can use other species milk. In our in our daily lives, we're the only species that has developed an airplane and can fly. I don't know if you're aware of that. No there. Done that either only humans, cows, airplanes, cows are not flying planes cover not no they're not. That's weird. There's going to be they don't drive cars I don't fly planes they don't operate heavy machinery. We're the only ones that do any of that says you says. Yes and there's still time they'll find us out maybe they'll get to the moon before we knew a second time I don't know maybe they'll make demars before we do I mean they cattle or horses or apes. Cows already telling us. To eat more chicken. That's true though already nudging us. But. Good. We are being plug into space without opposable thumbs. Go Back to Berkeley in these checkout aisles come on. Let's noodle this out. What are you gonNA. See in the checkout island Berkeley Probably Tofu. Fresher. Like some weird healthy alternative member McDonald's and then it seems like a burger. I don't really know. I think that was a cost cutting costs cutting thing. He, he's A. Borderline Vegan Research Martin borderline ships seaweed chips Oh is that a thing I believe so they love like, okay him flax or Avocado toast. Avocado. Got It. Yeah. Some weird stuff on that menu. Also subway sandwiches contained too much sugar. To legally be considered bread. Ireland Supreme Court just made that really. The, Supreme Court ruled that sandwiches made by subway in Ireland contained too much sugar to be legally considered bread. The ruling arose from an appeal from the book. Finders. Limited subway Franchisee, which claimed that it should not have to pay that. Tax, all, the value added tax. Those are fun as many products. It sells are staple foods and should attract a zero percent VAT tax. Okay. However the five-judge. Cord. Ruled that the sandwiches must attract a rate of VAT. Due to its sugar content. The law states that for bread to be considered a spit staple product and not attract a value added tax, it shall not exceed two percent of the weight of flour included in the dough shut up. So here's what's happening. Subway's bread has a ten percent ratio they are. That's crazy. So it's basically a junk food tax there saying that subway bread doesn't get to count as bread we get the tax it with this, you know what the radius to. Thirteen point, five percent. It's unbelievable. How. The. Judges rejected the argument agreeing that it was clear that once the allowed percentage was exceeded for anyone ingredient, the bread lost zero percents. This formula shake madness man thirteen, point five percent just because it has more sugar than the government wants you to eat. You'd think it's hard to take. Isn't it? When you enact something like a value added tax they're never gonNA come for the bread. And yet. They did. Cows Man I'm telling you there takeover over passing take over. It could happen at any moment. I was just reading an article about how smart they are. Apparently, they're really smart. Yeah cattle. Yeah. They are yeah So got some cattle drive into town not smart enough to avoid climbing into the truck on the way to the meat grinder. No thank goodness. Still still I still want him to wind up in my fridge and they do. Okay also from craft, they're offering limited edition, pumpkin spice Mac and cheese this fall K. now you've gone too far now the Kansas is official. Yeah. Yeah that's official. We should be the only species that can do a limited edition, pumpkin spice Mac and cheese, and we shouldn't be doing that. Okay. We should not be doing it I. Look at that. That is pumpkin spice Mac, and cheese why how would that be good? After after testing, they're pumpkin spice Mac, and cheese north of the border craft is bringing the autumn themed concoction to the US in limited quantities. Oh the Canadians are on board so we should be oh, there's a exactly. Haitian. After seeing the huge response no pumpkin spice Mac and cheese received north of the border and even hearing some heated debates about it down here we had to bring it to the US for Americans to try. Who knows? Maybe you can become a new North American fall favorite. Okay. So so this is this test what we said earlier. You should have the right to try it. Right choice ensure There's no way I'm going to like this. I, gross. They added hints of Nutmeg while to Mac and cheese the sounds pretty strange. Yeah. Hints of Meg Rice Cinnamon and ginger to its traditional cheese powder. Now through Tuesday craft is offering people in the US a chance to win a thousand limited edition, Pumpkin Spice? Kraft. Mac and cheese products by using hashtags. PUMPKIN SPICE KMC sweepstakes. Okay. That's a little wordy for a half. Point out as well as kraft Mac and cheese on twitter. nope. So again, it's limited edition. Yes. So you gotta get there quickly I think it's a limited edition because they know everyone's going to think it sucks. That's like, let's say it's a limited edition because he no way this is going on. Don't see how it could quite frankly. But I did add though ironically and Mac and cheese yesterday and I added like citrus lemon pepper type flavoring to it. Yeah. We'll say that works. Really but I'm not doing this. by Mac and cheese. That's sanity we've gone too far and the cows. Obviously it. Now it's official. They're in charge I. If yes, and they should be they should be we've laid out evidence in the last ten minutes to show. The couch should be controlling us at this point. By the way speaking of Control. Pandemic crowd and traffic control measures being taken in London are an absolutely perfect indication of what I believe is to come the city of London's traffic lights, streets I mean, they're light on traffic. They are. Of course they want this to last beyond the plant pandemic taking steps to make that happen now rules introduced over the summer to maintain social distancing in the final financial district have seen wider footpaths driving lanes narrowed, and in some cases timed road closures and they've already said we're going to keep going after words because it already lessened the traffic in London. This is exactly what they want. This is their plan as we re boot after this pandemic, they think it's the perfect time. Now to institute all the things they've been striving for on climate change on socialism, you name it this is their big chance and they're already taking advantage of it in London. By, disallowing you to drive the streets of London. If you don't think this is coming to the united. States of America as well. Like you're, GONNA be. Sorely. disappointed. Because it will.

Here we are in the height of an election season that will determine the future of the country. Are you going to listen to WHO can you trust? Who could have thought that when people told, Democrats, they had to treat Wisconsin like battleground they would take it quite so literally. iheartradio is number one for podcast, and it's easy to see why listen to the buck sexton show on the iheartradio APP or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to today's edition of the rush limbaugh show podcast. So Ladies and gentlemen how many times have you heard me say how many times have I said? That the news. That will affect the election. Hasn't happened yet. Every time they issued a poll, the past six months and don't pay any attention to it doesn't mean anything. The event steadily affect the election haven't happened yet. Anybody. WanNa. Dispute Man. Probably Southern Command in sunny south. Florida. Why Where we specialize in perfection? We specialize in pursuing excellence. It is the rush limbaugh program. It's the open line Friday edition. Now, that just means it will we go to the phones the callers? Have even more freedom latitude and leeway than they normally do. This program is a benevolent dictatorship when you strip it all down. I run it I'm a good guy. And I am fair and honest and I treat everybody calls its program with the utmost respect. But it's also a radio show that we gotta keep people listening to and I can't I can't allow for things get boring here. Now, I'm not boring. So that means if there's anything boring on this program, it will be the callers. Can't permit that. So Monday through Thursday, we screen it pretty tightly. That's the thing on Friday though we don't screw very tightly but pretty much whatever you want to talk about fair game. And I run that great professional risk. Turning, the program over to the non professionals, it's fun I look forward to it and we're added again eight hundred. Two Eight, two, two, eight, eight, two is the number if you WanNa be on the program. President, trump. And the first lady Melania trump announced early this morning that they have both tested positive. For Covert Nineteen. I was made aware of this. Just. Before One A. M. Today. And in fact I was in two stages I had been made aware that it was possible. And that. The. President and the first lady had been given tests and the results were being awaited. And it was shortly before one am that I've found out what the results were and I have to tell you. Folks I was crushed. It's really Strange. The emotions that hit you. You learn a lot about yourself and you learn a lot about what you really think of the virus has been around here since. The beginning of the year essentially February march. and. Depending on whether or not? You know somebody who has contracted. In it. Is dealt with by people in different ways if you don't know anybody. Who has come down with? Covert. Nineteen You think of it in a certain set of ways if you know somebody who has. You think of it entirely differently if you know somebody who has been killed by it, you think of it entirely differently than. People who only know of it From a distance and then you add to all of that what you think of the virus in the first place. Do you think of it as a death sentence if anybody gets it and a lot of people, do you know we've run the stories over the course of this past year? Discuss them. Where something like thirty percent Is If I getting this thirty percent of the American people like nine million. Americans. believe that everybody who gets covert one, thousand, nine, hundred s from it. That's what it was, and it's something like nine million Americans have died. That's right. Thirty thirty percent equals nine, million American. A huge I think it's over half the American people think very close to it. I'd have to look up that story, but the bottom line is the way the virus has been treated in the media the way it's been reported on. The pictures. Of Boarded? Up. Cities and towns. The. d- everything that's happened. The economic downturns result the the blue states cities in the blue states states that have been kept shut down because of the virus artificially on purpose to affect the economy of this country and to make. Sluggish to prevent its full full-fledged return for political reasons but. However. You see this The impression that a lot of Americans have is that this virus is a death sentence. But it isn't. But nevertheless it you still have the way it's reported. The way we are. Altering every aspect of American life because of it, you almost have to excuse people thinking that it's a death sentence. Because it is being treated as such. It's being reported as such day in and day out. Pretty much every public health. Suggestion. Admonition. Local city or state requirement is Rudin. Or based on the fact that if you contract this virus. You are in huge deep big trouble. Everybody is according to the way it's reported so you can't. Blame people in a way for thinking that. But here is. I I watch Dr Marty mccarey today he's He's a brilliant. Cancer specialist at Johns Hopkins. And he is a regular on Fox News. And he has been talking sense about the. The virus and the way it's Way Impacts various people and. What to do to prevent it to keep from getting he's really, really good. And he said today that. melania trump. From all of the best kept medical data that we have since the inception of this Myers. In the United States that she has a ninety nine point nine percent chance of a full recovery. And then he said that president trump. Has. A ninety nine percent chance of full recovery. That took me aback because I have been under the belief. That president trump as somebody who's over sixty five. by the way, he's not obese. They're trying to say that he's obese overweight. But. He's not not obese but regardless, they say that he's got demographic. Characteristics. that. Put Him at Greater? Risk. For really bad things happening. If he contracts the virus and here's Marty Dr Macari saying I'm ninety, nine percent chance of. Full recovery. In my case. Getting covert would be dire. It's all about whether or not. Your immune system is firing all cylinders and whether you can mount some kind of your body can mount a defense. against. President trump I have to tell you I I. What I heard this at one am that was crushed folks. was crushed and I've been examining. Why was I crushed I is it because I think about the virus it's the. It, it's the belief system that has evolved in me based on the way the virus. Has Been reported on in the in the media and. Independent ways I've informed myself about it. May, you'd rather not get it. Even though the president said, they have a ninety nine percent chance of. Full recovery. To me you know I all I could think about. Just. Share with you the the rush of emotions. That happened instantaneously. I was crushed and I was trying to put myself with him president and the first lady are in the residents of the White House, what are they thinking? How is this impacting them? What really? Not not the public face they're gonNA. Put forward but. Rather just as human beings. How is This affecting, how does it affect anybody? WHO GETS IT? But president trump isn't just anybody president of the United States. And then I had flash memories of that night in the House Chamber. On what was it February fourth state of the Union. Where be. President. Bestowed upon me the presidential medal freedom. And I just I saw this larger than life individual. Prowling. At the podium. That night state of the Union House. Chamber larger than life. See that's the key. We're dealing with somebody here to all of us. I don't care whether you hate the guy. I don't care whether you think that he is a lying. Worthless Morally bankrupt bad. Orange Man. He is still larger than life in fact I would venture. To say that if you hate the man, he dominates your life more than. People's lives who love him or dominated. You are so obsessed with the guy. You're dislike or your hatred is so consuming that you can't stop thinking about him, and that makes him larger than life. You wouldn't know what to do with him if he weren't here. You would know what to do with yourself. You have those of you who do not like the bad orangemen. Those of you who have convinced yourself that every problem you face in life is his fault. What a convenient excuse you've got. Donald. Trump is the reason you're a unhappy be miserable. See have no job no job prospects what whatever your reason for not like the guy it is all consuming. He is larger than life to people love him. To people that respect to people who have invested the literal hope and future of our country. In trump he's larger than life. This cannot happen this. CanNot, be allowed to happen. Whether you. Love like dislike or hate. Donald trump the one thing that you know. And you either love this or you hate this. He's invincible. Seems Invincible Imagine Fox to the American left. And the Democrat. Party. They've done everything they know how? To Destroy Donald Trump I mean literally destroy. Not, just getting thrown out of office, they have tried to destroy his. Reputation his family's life is past his future. They've thrown every weapon they have and they have. Watched every weapon just bounce off. Making not even a dent. They haven't stopped him. They may have slowed down the implementation of an agenda, but they haven't stopped donald trump to to them. Whether they want to admit it or not. Seems Invincible. Particularly healthwise. I've known him for long time never. Seen him sick never heard of him being sick. Even with the common cold. So. Knowing what I knew what I thought I knew about. President being in the number one demographic danger zone. And This. This this rushing. Flood of emotions about what? Must they have felt like when they got the results back and I know what that is by the way me and my family know what those feelings are when you get a diagnosis and it would. Just some people think covid nineteen, th death sentence other people know that it's not but. Can't blame either one because as I say the way it's been reported will shape the way you you think about it. And then. When something happens like this to somebody love what happens to you it's a whole different thing you deal with it. In different ways when it happens to, you wouldn't be at covid nineteen or some other. Diagnosis. Regardless, whether it happens to you arte somebody you know respect. Have Immense. HOPE INVESTED IN Life is. Precious. We all only get one. I look at Donald Trump and. If there's ever been anybody who has lived life. To the maximum potential, it would have to be Donald Trump you know William F Buckley Junior was the same way. An, incredible life lived not seemingly a wasted waking moment. Same thing with trump. Then here comes illness and it's it's the one. It is one of many common denominators that no matter how you live your life. No matter. What kind of person you are here comes illness. It's the great equalizer. It is the great common. Denominator. We. Used to be able to say all of US meaning Americans. Not True now. Still true for a vast majority but it's not universally true. We love and respect the office of the Presidency so much. The office of the presidency is revered. revered. In our country, it's revered among our peoples revered in our history. It is crucially important is the most important. Leadership job. In, the world. Less. Than fifty people. Have held it. And you hate to sensitive to someone JFK was nine years older sixty-three leasing three, twelve years old. Fifty when John Kennedy was assassinated even at twelve years old you know this is not right. This is it was devastating. Anything. Happening to the occupant of that office. is amplified and compounded because. Of the office. That we love and respect. And revere. So much. We love this president we do. We love how hard he's fighting for us for the American people. Regardless, what's thrown at him? He doesn't stop doesn't stop fighting for us. Four greatness. America gotTa take a break, but I'm not through hang on. Right before we went to break, it was a announced that the Biden's have tested negative for covid nineteen everybody at the debate. was tested in the Biden's have tested negative senator. Mike Lee. From Utah has announced that he has tested positive. For. covid nineteen, and of course, Hope Hicks who is the? ranking presidential aide tested positive for it, and it is thought that she is the the spreader here I don't know if that's still. An active thought. But. She does she does have thought that's where the president the first lady came down with at least the last I saw this. Anyway. On the break very quickly. No, we Speaking for myself and people I know and many of you. We Love Donald. Trump we love. And Support Him we continue to invest in him because of his. Continued fight. For us. And for the country and for the American people. Is the only want engaging in it Now I mean there might be some other Republicans on. Saint page making me effort but he's the leader. He's the one that gives everybody. The freedom to move in the cover and he's Unwavering. In his professed. Love for and support for this country and I'm going to have some thoughts on. What this election to really all about you WANNA, make it as simple as as you can for people. So that's that's coming. If. I. Had a medal to give Donald Trump I would. Give a one sadly. I don't. But. If I did I would we wish? Him in the first lady, the best speedy recovery, and so forth we'll deal with some of the hate that's out there next when we get back, don't go away. By the way Amy Coney Barrett has also tested negative for the. For the virus. she has been in contact with senators, Mike, we who have tested positive for it. So. I guess a lot of people that. we'll. We'll be announcing the results of. Tests I just saw Chris Wallace on Fox. He not going to get. He was at the debate to you might. You might have remembered him he was the moderator. And he said, he not GonNa get tested until Monday. He and his wife because you gotta wait, you gotTa wait for the stuff to happen settle in out there doesn't necessarily show up. Within a day or two of coming into contact. With someone who has The virus a lot of people taking the occasion now of the president's contracting covid nineteen. And the first lady. To say that he didn't wear the mask. It's obvious. It's the mask that's the problem that just warn mask. This wouldn't have happened. They say he's The most protected, the human being on earth. Lives in the most secure bubble of any human being on earth. Everybody that has a meeting with trump everybody that's going to be in the same room with him. Has To get tested for Cova. For their allowed in and still. He. Got It. Still, the first lady got it. and. Summer saying that's just proves. That you're gotta wear the mask that just proves you gotta listen to the Science. And I don't know does it Would the president wearing a but conclusively say that he would not have gotten covid nineteen had he been wearing a mask at all of these? Meetings and places and rallies and fundraisers, and so forth and he had attended grab sound. Bite Number Number Twenty one David Rodham Gergen today. On CNN, a former are the anchor John King. Said, what goes through your mind on this day when you think about where we are in the calendar and the consequential election that's just ahead the president of the White House come out and show some humility about this to recognize in fact that they could have done a better job I think it's GonNa go one way if on the other hand. What we see is the president within just a few days a Palestinian into our living rooms by television and saying I'm the guy who be Kobe. I'm just staying here for extra caution sake but I took it like a man and everybody else can do it and we've turned the corner if he's In other words I think it's GonNa go very play and I don't think other will have much sympathy for him. Now what must you? Must you be thinking if that is the way you're thinking, he's GonNa react to it. That's David, Rodham Gergen former Clinton adviser former Bush adviser former. He's Mr Washington conventional wisdom if you want to know. What the conventional wisdom is on any given day topic in Washington DC. Just find out what David Rodham Gergen is thing about it. He says if he has some humility here could be could be okay. But if what we see Is a president within just a few days bouncing back into our living rooms. On television saying I'm the guy beat covid. And if I can do it, everybody can do it. If, he's defiant in other words. I think is going to go very different way. Don't think the public will have much sympathy for him whatsoever if he turns into a braggart. About having beaten covert nineteen, this has been one of the ever since campaign in two thousand sixteen to one thing that trump critics of. Throw name is constantly is that he has no no no humility. And he does and it's on parade maybe fleeting. But you can see in every one of his rallies. He has humility and he's got empathy but the humidity is It's on display. You can see him he fully thanks everybody for showing up. He lets them know. His supporters, the crowds. Them know how much he appreciates it how? Much. It means to him. He may say it in thirty seconds. You may say it in ten seconds, but he lets people now and his supporters know it now Michael Moore. Thinks that trump may be lying about it. that he doesn't have covid nineteen that he's making it all up just to get some sympathy. Because he knows he's losing the presidential election. Michael Moore Floated Theory That trump could be lying about having covid nineteen to prepare US and counteract his game and to gain sympathy ahead of the election. He said Democrats liberals the media and others have always been wrong to simply treat trump as a buffoon as dumb as a jackass. Yeah. He's all those things, but he's also canny. He's clever. He outfoxed. Komi. IRT. Salafi out Fox combing. He outfoxed Mueller. Muller. There was nothing to outfox Mr. Moore. There was no evidence. He didn't outfox anybody. That was in fact. What we don't want to go down that road again, we've been down there. It was so damn dangerous what they were trying to do. They were trying literally. To have a guy convicted thrown in jail without the any evidence whatsoever of any crime having occurred they were. All Up. It was the most scandalous thing to happen in Washington in my lifetime that whole Russian collusion meddling in the election thing. Trump didn't outfox anybody. And I'm not trying to take anything away from him. There was nothing to outfox those people had no evidence now you might say, well, brush. It was still a monumental achievement. You got the whole town of Washington D. that whole. Gun for you. And you still beat them back. Yeah. I I like knowledge that but he did not Fox anybody anyway. Michael Moore believes the point is Michael Moore's proving the point whenever you hate him you love him he's still invincible to you. You still can't lay. A glove on him, he outfox Komi. Komi is now so humiliated and embarrassed commies running around. I don't remember. I. Don't recall James Comey was Mr Government Mr Honorable. Mister last man in Washington you can trust this guy was. So you WanNa talk about no humility you. WanNa talk about no grace you wanted to about no. Empathy James Comey was one of the most falsely manufactured images of purity. that. We've ever had in government or in Washington this guy lived off what is obviously now at totally contrived. For. Honor And Integrity. What's he been reduced to? Hillary Clinton I. Know My minders Jello I can't recall I don't remember. His only way out I don't remember. And yet for. Three Years James commes assuring everybody that trump. Is. A Russian agent. Trump is a traitor. Anyway as far as Michael Morris concerned, he's outfoxed all these guys out twenty Republicans in the Republican. Primary? And then he did the same thing that Democrats when he won the White House. Despite receiving fewer popular votes than Hillary Clinton. More, he's evil genius and I raised the possibility of him a lying about having covid nineteen. To prepare US and to counter act is game he knows being sick tends to gain someone sympathy. He's not above weaponising this. This is a facebook post by the way put up just hours after. Trump announced and the first lady have covid. Nineteen? Early. This morning. Yeah. He's losing elections. He needs to do something here to rebound really quickly so it could be making all of this up. The New York Times beside itself. Two things? Here's a Newt Gingrich tweet. Just when you think the New York Times can't get any dumber they tweet this. If trump becomes sick. It could raise questions about whether we should remain on the mallet. And all. You Pelosi out there now saying trump one, not even debating but the end of it Biden these not debating put a put a lid on it. No more debates. For. A guy that won the debate hands down they sure seem eager not to do any more of them. Times reporters, Peter. Baker and Maggie Haberman Save it. Trump's positive tests throws the nation's leadership into uncertainty and then the new. York Times had an editorial. Calling trump's infection the result of his deadly. Foolish. Recklessness. No matter how you feel about trump's performances president we feel pretty strongly than it's been a disaster writes the Times. is another crisis for a nation reeling from a year that almost seems apocalyptic trump's impeachment covid nineteen. A popular outcry over racial injustice, the deaths of John Lewis at Ruth Bader Ginsburg catastrophic wildfires and now this. A reckless president who's irresponsibility has in danger not only himself and his family but the. Of the country I throwing the executive branch into chaos another crisis this when fully of trump's own making. WHAT THEY WANNA do they WANNA throw him out of office. GET HIM OUT THEY WANNA get rid of pence they want to install Pelosi. Even keen to the idea. Okay to the phones we go. It's open line Friday. And I always try to get started on the phones in the in the first hour Texan discipline, but we're gonNA. Do we're going to start reading? Connecticut. Welcome Ruben great to have you here sir. megadose. Thank you. And Godspeed to you you have my family's prayers for your health and speedy and full recovery. Thank you very much. Appreciate that you welcome. Welcome. The reason I'm calling is that. If I hadn't heard the news myself earlier today and I just turned into your monologue Yup I would've thought you were eulogizing the president when you scare me there, you sounded down in the dumps. Almost. Talking to them like he was in the past tense. Is that right? That's fascinating. You. Go back and listen to yourself. You'll see what I'm talking about. Well. I it's a good point I I don't get to listen to myself the way all of you do. 'cause I'm too busy doing it if I were to go back listen to what I said. So it I can't possibly here. This program is heard by by by you I. I don't think that I could possibly appreciate how great this show is not like you all do because I'm and I'm too busy doing it. But now you're white you're observation here is fascinating to me because that was one of my points. It all depends on how you perceive this virus. How you perceive the reporting on the virus I'm telling you you. That's why the numbers. Of. Thirty percent nine, million Americans believe that everybody who gets the COVID nineteen virus dies from it why do they think this? I guarantee you. It's because of the way it's been reported in the media. and. So if if if you heard my comments on this. As a eulogy more than I. In no way do I think the president is going to succumb to this? But it was more a sober Reaction. To, the to the just seems. Of all people that are invincible, the things like this donald trump is the top of that list and there aren't very many people on the list. But I'm still fast that you heard it as a quasar. Eulogy and if if that's I. Think that's largely in part because of the way I. Have Been. conditioned. To react to. The virus what I've been conditioned to think that it is. and plus there's a personal component here too and that is i. Because of my circumstances were to get it. It would it would be dire it would be. That's why I've had the. Hermit One oh, one, recluse one. Oh, one into. full-fledged practice. Here It's all about the immune system and went to mount. A Fight against. But I appreciate I, appreciate the observation I I didn't. I didn't mean for that to be the perception I'm glad that you. Shared it with me. I'm glad you call too. That's why we wanted to put you up first to get this. Even I. At times can learn how things have happened here are heard and perceived by very valuable. Here's Connie Lake. Hang on minute lake. Orion Michigan great to have you. I was GONNA. Say Onion I wouldn't wear my glasses and I can't be lake onion I never heard of lake I just anyway how are you doing? Good. When Love You love the president he did sound kind of sad there in the beginning. So my positive spin this is going to be a turning point for president he'll be able to speak and relate to people yeah. Wants to get through this what Tree Mitzi. Sad, etc.. And my other comment is that mask on percents you know also just got listen God bless you. Let me go back to why why do you think this a turning point that campaigner rob a turning point period. Because, he'll be able to relate to the people. He'll. He'll. He has it now in once he gets through it what she would Sunday. So you think. Positive spend on your sad enough. So you think I sounded sad. Yes, they did. Though no, no, no is not. Here I'm I'm appreciative of the of the feedback. Or sort of first caller brad sound like you're delivering a Eulogy Youth think that I was. A. Projecting Sadness. Or Look I'm not happy that he Malania have contracted it. Yeah But I think this is a good point for the president. He's basically healthy. He's GonNa make it through. He'll be able to speak to you know America that's what I'm saying. I thought I made it anyway. So. You think this will help him re late to people more now that he himself. Has Come Down with the virus that will be able to relate more to people who have now that. I'm sorry you want someone interpretation I'm interpreting or interpreting you is saying. President. Really relate to people very well. At forty, six percent trump's pre debate job approval is the highest since May. This is a Gallup poll and there's another fascinating aspect to this Gallup poll I haven't seen reported yet standby. It's all coming up. Support for this podcast comes from at and T. Five from at and T. is fast, reliable, secure and nationwide. So should you switch? Well, historically, those were the reasons. New Tack was adopted Neanderthal some fire heated things fast and made their cave secure from rampaging woolly mammoths. The ancient Roman saw that the would were a reliable and fast way to transport water. So they stopped carrying water jugs on their backs and adopted them nationwide. Oh, ending eighteen hundreds. Victorian. saw electronically light up rooms fast and be more reliable than candles blowing out. So they stopped pumping into walls and made it nationwide. Today's no different switching to a t and t five G. is kind of a no brainer I mean historically speaking it's smarter than candles water pots hungry dinosaurs at and T. Five G.. It's not complicated. five-year choirs. Compatible plan may not be in your area see at dot com slash five G. for you for details. Hey. It's Buck sexton. Here we are in the height of an election season that will determine the future of the country who are you going to listen to?

The biggest names in the heaviest hitters in politics trust me. So we've done a lot buck and we have some great support. Your viewpoint is very important to me very, very important.

Grab more calls telephone number eight hundred. Two Eight, two, two, eight, eight, two, the email address elrushbo at EIB net dot us. A lot of. People. Who have contracted the virus, the the governor of Virginia. Wrath now them. You remember him. He is a doctor. He's a wounded painted self up in black face in med school and the Democrats don't that were funny. No black lives matter problem now, he got it. He's a doctor he perfect lockdown he got. President Trump's. Germaphobe. Lives probably the most secure environment and a human being in the world trade winds in constant testing everybody around him constant testing. He got it. You can look at the mitigation efforts against Kovin. Six feet. Social distancing where mask still people that social distance and wear masks have contracted the virus. It's a virus. The virus dozens of all, here's a mask I'm going to go somewhere else. Ooh, that's too far away six feet. I can't get there I. DON'T I don't know that it works that way. I look I'm not against people taking whatever steps they think will work. To, prevent getting it and so forth. But I don't think it's Safe to say that there is a universal set. Of behaviors that will guarantee that you don't get. It. You. Know what they're probably is one. And even this one. Is. For. Most people. Impossible And I mean that lily impossible the best way. Of. Ensuring. That you don't get this is to never. Ever, come into personal contact with another human being. Now. If that's what it required. If there was, let's say there's a killer virus out there. Not not this let cintas killer virus. And the only way to avoid it was to avoid contact. With humanity could you do it? Could you do that? Most people couldn't wouldn't they wouldn't have a prayer. Human beings need human contact. They need the interaction they need the physical contact, the emotional psychological. But that is probably the best step you could take and it wouldn't have to be universal but seeing as few people as possible never leaving home. Never letting anybody in. I, mean, if you really want to go to the Max to not get the those are the things that you would have to do. Then you can take the other steps that they recommend and you can hope that they. They work. You just. Do. The best you can protect people who are at risk of getting it. And suffering greatly from it including dying from it. You do the best you can, and if people do get it, you treat them the best that you can. Game. One. Of, the finals between the Los Angeles, Lakers and the Miami. Heat. Brought in seven point four million viewers to ABC according to the Hollywood reporter. That's. The lowest viewership scene for the NBA finals since Nineteen ninety-four. Now Nine, thousand, nine, hundred dollars when total viewers began to be regularly recorded. So it's not that something happened in nineteen, ninety four and made them really bad. It's that's when they first started. tabulating. Total viewers that number is down forty five percent. From last year's game one between the Golden State Warriors in the Toronto Raptors. which have thirteen and a half million viewers. This is the fourth straight year. That game one viewership has gone down compared to the previous season lowest viewership in recorded history why you think. Basketball's basketball. The Lakers the Lakers Lebron James is Lebron James The star players at the star players. You like the NBA You like the NBA finals you'll you know the people are tuning out in. Droves wonder why what could happen anybody got any ideas I wonder what it could be. Very. Strange waves, Charles, gasp arena I got. I got an email from a friend in the last hour. And the subject line of my friends. Email is what the heck am I missing here. Any email was A. Tweet from Charles Gasperi no Charles, gasparilla economics reporter. Where's he at Fox or CNBC maybe? CNBC went to Fox or the other way around. I'm not sure where he works now at work anywhere how I can't keep up. Anyway, here's what Gaspar Reno works at Fox business. Here's what he said. Following the debate trump's odds of reelection fell dramatically. But in speaking with Republican advisers. They say the party has now largely given up on trump for November the focus. is on trump at least trying to keep a close soda to Republicans can keep the Senate. So. My friend centers. No. So what? What? What what am I missing? Why do I not look at it this way? and. I wrote back. The very simple reason. You don't believe the polls. That's what you're missing. Every one of these people believes the polls and the polls if you haven't noticed. Have Biden winning in a landslide and the landslide is growing every day and he's winning every battleground state. These people believe the polls and you don't. Well, she doesn't believe the polls. and. You know. Why is it other than the obvious the polling is done on the percentage of people registered in the parties as twenty. Sixteen. Since then GOP registrations blown the off many states. So they should be pulling more Republicans but they aren't and the polls for the most part is still close in many within the margin of error. So I don't. But it's clear to me that the vast majority of people think this is over. Truly believe that it's the they believed the polls. I don't. And I never have. And I've been bitten by it and I've been validated both have happened but I'm still stunned. I maybe I shouldn't be but I literally am stunned by the number of people who blog who are journalists or who just opine. The number of writers to whom the polls are gospel. They. I Guy I ran into that exhibited. This trait was Tim Russert. Remember having dinner one night with Tim Russert and his wife Maureen, orth and it's It's one year after president. Year. Was it. It was one year after presidential election. So It might of been one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four. Clinton Year was ninety two point. A campaign is first year in office was ninety three. And at Dinner Tim Russert was citing for me the polls of the ninety six presidential race. In nineteen ninety-four is so invested. In what the polls said that was his frame of reference total framer. This is not a criticism only misunderstand. I. The polls today matter. This is one thousand, nine, hundred Tim you think they really matter as to what's going to happen in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty well yeah I mean it's an indication of what's happening right now. WHO's popular now who's got a Leg Up on everybody I just don't see it. But. That's who these people are and they firmly believe. That this whole thing is over. mentioned. In the last half hour, there's a Gallup poll out and it pretty much. It's really contradictory though. Because it's got the usual stuff about. Biden winning big. Expanding margins and battleground states. But then if you if you keep plotting away and you keep reading toward the end of the poll you find. A fascinating. Part of it. At forty six, percent trump's. Pre. Debate job approval is the highest since May. In Gallup's polling conducted over the two weeks leading up to the first debate. Trump's job approval rating is forty six percent at its highest point since May. Trumps. started the year with the highest approval rating of his presidency, which is forty nine percent that'd be in January. That was amid his acquittal on impeachment charges. But then the approval numbers started to descend the thirty eight percent to forty-two percent range during the summer. As the pandemic and the. Economic downturn racial injustice issues afflicted the nation. Although the increase of four percentage points in trump's latest rating is not statistically significant. The fact that he is up from thirty eight to forty, two to forty, six percent. Two weeks before the debate. That's big. But there's one more part of this. One more nobody's reporting on. It's a single question. Regardless of whom you support. And trying to be as objective as possible. Who Do you think will win the election in November A majority believe that trump is gonNA win fifty six to forty percent. This is among People Gallup has polled. Question again, regardless of whom you support. And you trying to be as objective as possible? Who Do you think will win the election in November Donald Trump fifty, six, percent biden forty percent. Republicans answered the question trump ninety percent. Biden nine percent independence. Fifty. Six percent trump thirty, nine, percent, Biden. Democrats twenty four percent trump seventy, three percent biden. Now what would explain this? That's this answer doesn't jibe with any other poll result the top there and I don't care even the Rasmusen. Let's let's. Even include them. The all of the polls. No matter where you look at them every poll, nate silver motel you. Biden wins landslide. Eight points, ten points and it's getting worse for trump as time goes on and trump really destroyed himself in the debate it's really bad after the debate then to the battleground states and it's looking even worse for trump. and. Yet. In just such a poll where Biden wins big in debt just doesn't make sense to me. Biden doesn't have the kind of enthusiasm behind him. The kind of raw support that would generate a win like that. But they're sticking with it now we have Gallup. Reporting that the people participating in their poll think trump's GonNa win fifty six to forty percent. Why is this? Could it be that these people Weli one in twenty-six with nobody thought he was going to win. Same, thing's going to happen in twenty twenty. I, you tell me. But this for some reason. And I can't put my finger this. When fascinates me? Because these are the people in the poll that are producing the results. That suggest Biden's going to winning a landslide. They like by they say they don't like trump this then but then when you ask about who's GonNa win fifty six to forty. I gotta take a break. We'll come back and resume with you on the phones right after this. By the way one of the thing about this Gallup poll. Where they ask people in the poll who they think is going to. Win. It's never been wrong. It has never been wrong. They started this pulling his nineteen ninety-four. So it doesn't go back all that far. This is about. A little under thirty years, but it has never been wrong looking back. Gallup has asked Americans for their predictions in the late summer or fall of every election. It's one, thousand, nine, hundred, six, not not even ninety, six to two, thousand, twelve and each of these polls. Americans accurately predicted the winner of the popular vote. They predicted Gore would win the and they were right in two thousand but Gore did not win the electoral vote. Anyway never been wrong. They are predicting therefore that trump is going to win and win the popular vote. So why? Well I ladies and gentlemen have been analyzing this. I'm not just asking the question rhetorically, there has to be a reason. The same people in this Gallup poll that report Biden this Biden up by eight. But well, they answer questions that produce the result of Biden. Winning big landslide here landslide battleground state with the same people. When Gallup asked them who do you think's GonNa win being objective as you can fifty, six to forty trump's gonNA why? I'll tell you why. You know what it is. These people? An overwhelming majority of these people know somebody voting for trump. A, majority of people they know are for trump. That's why. That's why these people in the Gallup poll fifty, six to forty. Think trump's GONNA win because they're hearing everybody. They know our most people they know say they're voting for trump. We're talking about a representative sampling of people who believe this. So if polling methods and silence. are to mean anything we have to give this great credence. Ought to cut through any other concerns about these shy trump voters. You know there are a lot of people out there who are relying on the fact. Yeah, well, a pulse say one thing there's whole secret number trump people. Now they're really gonNa vote for trump air-freighter. Say so they're afraid of it beat up they'll frayed there'll be set a with gasoline they're afraid of bb guns you wait when it's electioneering sharpen vote trump andro, this kind of disproves this this. Fifty six to forty is not close and I'm just telling you. For. Those people in this Paul to think. By fifty six to forty trump's gonNA. Win They have to have some. Feedback producing that? Opinion. and. I, think the feedback is. That They know. A lot of people who are voting for trump they hear it. These people can say trump will win in this poll without revealing themselves to boot. So, there's no danger to them in saying they think trump will win. Because they're doing it anonymously. Gallup is not attaching names. To their respondents. But it hasn't been wrong since they started this. In Nineteen ninety-six. Now there may be other reasons to. Why this result exists, but this is not. I don't believe I. Don't believe. This is an insignificant part of a Gallup Poll. I think it's a standout. And it it had me really curious. Because again, the same people that produce the results in the poll that Gallup reports Biden winning hands down in the battleground states in the Bob your vote no matter where you. The. Same people who produce that result think trump's GONNA win fifty six to forty percent. By the way Dianne Feinstein has asked for a delay in the aiming Coney Barrick Comfort no kidding. We predicted that. Yeah. Right. Here it is meanwhile even before president trump's confident news, Diane, Feinstein and every other Democrat Senate Judiciary Committee were demanding. That Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearing be delayed jaws. As we predict that minute I heard that they were going to go ahead and a lot weeks for hearings. Folks I got a bad feeling about this. We just do not learn and it's not even that we of course learned Lindsey Graham cannot possibly be ignorant. About what the Democrats intentions are here, we don't even need to do any hearings. This whole thing has got to happen before the election. This came up in the debate the other night. And trump, start a mangled it. If you ask me, it's not this complicated. He was elected president in twenty sixteen for four years. We have an opening on the Supreme Court that is occurring within those four years. The American people spoke they elected trump largely on the basis of his Supreme Court list of potential justices. He made it a big part of the campaign. In Two thousand sixteen to say that trump is not entitled to make this pick. Because it's so close to election is nothing more than a Democrat delay tactic? He of course is entirely. Entitled to make this pick constitutionally. There's two things about it and that's it. The president names. The Justice Senate has a role to play advice and consent the Republicans run the Senate. If their advice is we've got the votes to pass the nominee. We don't need to do any hearings then there's the consent and we can be done with this. Now. No. Now, we're going to do hearings, and now we're GonNa do this and that and We may not even finish until October twenty second. We gotta have this or that happened, and now there's even Mitch McConnell will not even guarantee there will be a vote before the election and so what the hell's going up well, he's in a tight battle in Kentucky. So what? Then this is big. This judicial nominees this may not come by our way again. This opportunities if if this woman is not confirmed before the election, you can kiss it goodbye she's not going to be confirmed after the election. What rush. Even. Trump wins. If trump wins, they're going to do everything that it depends on what happens in the Senate. But. You don't WanNa take the chance. We've got opportunity to get this woman confirmed. Legally. Politically whatever. Way You want to analyze this. The legals and the constitutionality all on our side. Now. Here comes the Democrats demanding delay even even before trump gets covert nineteen, they're demanding a delay. The process they say is to hurry. To properly vet. Amy conybeare no, it's not. The woman has been vetted three years ago they put her through. The indignity of this three years ago. For her nomination to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. This this visit. All of this was so predictable. It was dammed predictable. This was going to happen. Anyway, let me get back to the phones Scott Columbia South Carolina you are next. It's great to have you here. Hello. Hey Rush it's an honor to talk to you man, please keep doing what you're doing. You're amazing. Thank you very much. just I a couple of points. One is polls are garbage right now talk to me the twenty first of October and then maybe. But right now, I don't even look at them too. I, look a lot of trump supporters including myself down in the dumps right now it's we're praying for the for the first family but I think we're missing a couple of opportunities here I think. Trump being off the campaign trail for what ten days I think his supporters. I think he's GonNa come out like a revving engine supporters we're going to be so jazzed when he comes out of this and it's GonNa be again like an engine ready to rock and roll and I think a lot of people are missing that he stays off the trail for ten days. I mean Christ bikes days off the trail for twenty days at a time. He stays trump's offer ten come on this isn't going to do anything but rev up even more not in. Just a minute who says that trump's GONNA stay off Trumka call this show anytime he wants if trump wants to do a virtual rally on this show, you could call right now. If the president wants to address the nation. He could call right now call into this program and say whatever he wants to say right now. I'm here by offering if the president wants to do a rally. Because, he can't go to rally, but he if he wants to do a nationwide rally. I'm the most listened to radio talk show in the country's got an open invitation to come here. But if he doesn't do that, who's to say he won't arrange a rally somewhere with a bunch of gigantic screens I. Don't think he's going to be invisible ten days. Or whatever length of time the the quarantine is I think it's ten fourteen days. But with the marvels of modern technology, he doesn't have to remain. Invisible anyway shape manner form. I'll tell you something else fogs. A circle back to amy coney. Barrett, we've got the perfect. The absolute perfect reason to cancel the hearings and go ahead and confirm covert nineteen. We cavity hearings. We can't put these. Russia. Forgetting Lake Ado virtual hearings they could do zoom. Okay Democrats want to do that I think Democrats want to be able to insult her but not to her face. Mine and Dandy. We've got the perfect answer. For an immediate confirmation vote for Amy Coney Barrett and that is Cova. Nineteen. Got Washington. Paralyzed. Right. But we're not we don't have to be. They don't have to do hearings she's been vetted. Here's Here's Richard. Richard in Bay, City Michigan I'm glad you called welcome to open line Friday. Hi Rush you're in our thoughts and prayers keep up the good work Mike point is I'd like to see president trump Started doing weekly Primetime. dresses to the nation on TV, and they can sidestep the crop media. You can do it from the Oval Office and draws distinctions between. The trump America and the Biden America I don't think a Lotta people that Watch the. Media even know what they're voting for when you're fighting. For the radicalism communism that's coming their way if they vote all hell I I, in fact I'm glad you reminded me of something I that. That's true. But there's a problem. Going to be upfront and honest, the president's not going to be given unfettered national anytime. To address the nation from the Oval Office in campaign mode the networks are not gonNa make it available your. Foxwood and that would be it the one. America, News Network and make it available but. Not CNN NOT MSNBC nobody would see it again it'll be the same problem that exists now. It would be seen and you're even suggesting that be a pain event. He needs to stop showing up with liberals. He needs to stop doing events for Liberals in the media get a shot at him he just needs a national address. Address, the Nation Oval Office wherever keep the liberals out of the equation. there is no notice, but there's no requirement. That if the President says he going to address the nation the Oval Office the media is under no obligation to televise it. Presidents have to ask for that time and if the. And they would think that it's raw political. That There's any about they will not get anywhere near it. They won't do it. So while it's a nice idea. They're going to have to find a different way gotta take a brief break. We will be back after this. Now. I'll tell you ladies and gentleman is bouncing off of our last caller who wants. Trump to screw biden screw these debates, scrawled stuff just doing national address. The media will never go for that, but there is one element of that than I do support I think trump ought to adjust cease. Any. Back and forth with the media anywhere anytime I don't care if it's these press conferences, he does out on the White House lawn on the way to the helicopter or you don't see the media don't even engage him right up till the election. In other words. Out Biden Bite Biden's avoiding the media Biden doing diddly squat. Biden is hiding in his little basement wherever he is. Now he's doing it for different reasons. There is nothing to be gained by quote unquote being fair with the other side there is nothing to be gained by letting the other side have open shot at you. Trump has proven that it doesn't work. He has been the most available president. In our history, the past three and a half years. He has he has done more press availabilities. He has spent longer in each of the availabilities press conferences. Press goggles letting the press into the beginning of a cabinet meeting whenever There is no president who has been more accessible and more available and more cooperative. With the media. Than Donald Trump and where has it gotten him? For All. These people in our sites as well. You know what? Rush? discussed the show we got to show that we can be fair. We gotta showed a week and work with these people. On the other side we gotta show that we are not intended to be impugned. Do we not embarrassed and we certainly are not threatened money Why do we have to demonstrate any of this? Why do we have to show anybody who we are and who we are is that not the essence of defensiveness. We to show who we are. What are we doing? We're simply accepting their allegations against us and saying, no, that's not who we are watching us. I think trump ought to have a thing to do with the media from here to the election. Find ways to reach the American people without him like. If he wants to call in here any time he can. If he wants to use this program to do a radio rally. Is More than welcome to. And I'M GONNA I'M GONNA I'M GONNA find a way to reach out the White House and extend this. Invitation formally. He's got plenty of ways to reach the American people without. Opening up himself up. To there is never in addition to a president, never being more available, giving more time to the media than this guy, there's never been a president more mistreated more maligned more lied about more impugned than Donald trump he owes them nothing. Now. At about what was it about one, fourteen, th afternoon live sometime in the one o'clock hour today political ran a story and the headline of the story McConnell vows full steam ahead on Barrett. AS FEARS RISE VIRUS OUTBREAK Senator Mike Lee Republican Judiciary Committee announced he'd tested positive for the corona virus. So. Here's the guts of the story Lindsey Graham sheduled to begin hearings for Barrett on October twelfth. which are ten days from now planning to hold a committee vote on October twenty second. In his statement. Mike. Lee said he planned to quarantine for ten days expected to be able. To provide support for Barrett in the committee. Said I've spoken with leader, McConnell and chairman. Graham and assured them. I'll be back to work in time to join my judiciary committee colleagues in advancing the Supreme Court nomination. Still looking for the part of this story where McConnell says, it's full steam ahead. Of Ever. McConnell was appearing with with Hugh Hewitt on the radio. Today said, he has yet to choose a date. For the final floor vote but that the Democrats will be unable to delay Barrett's confirmation. However fallout from the pandemic is largely out of his control all C E. Our biggest enemy is the corona virus keeping everybody healthy and well, and in place to do our jobs. The turtles said that portions of Barrett's hearings are likely to be conducted remotely. Not sure yet whether senator who met with Barrett And White House officials had contracted the virus. Some. Still looking for the part of the story. McConnell vows full steam ahead but don't see it in. I have spoken with leading. Well, I'll trust your word for it because the headline says he's bows full steam ahead but. I don't see evidence of full steam ahead. Here's Patricia in in poplar. Montana, you're next open line Friday. Hi. Hi. How are you honored to speak with you rush. Thank you very. Mega. Prayers, I just want you to know that I have family members in the medical profession who has had hand experience with Kobe nine t and therefore I know the science and I didn't think you were being negative at all when you talked about the president and the first lady because I already knew the science and I knew and you went on in your your what you told us on our. Your listeners, you told us a science, which by the way is one hundred percent correct which you're saying according to my to doctors in my family and also further in the program you talked about math and that's right. They aren't always going to protect you because that Kobe thing is so tiny it can get you any mask except for some of the ones that the medical providers where which are they can nike. So that's what I have to say. And I want to say one more thing. God. Gave you your gift. He's also giving your strength. To get your problems. So. Can't deny that that's that's very, very observant on your on your part. That's why I say talent. On Loan. From God. Anyway, glad you call Patricia thanks there was seen as another caller two doesn't think that I was in eulogy mode that that was not an eulogy mode in a way shape manner form I was. What it was folks it was more. A reaction. To, learning that somebody WHO's a hero of mine is actually invincible not invincible. It was a it was a sobering. Reality. Like A wakeup call. Actually. A better expression of thought that I got time constraints. Go we'll be back in continue here in mere moment. You know how it is one of your heroes who seems Indestructible Yvonne to be human that that was more my reaction to trump getting covid nineteen wasn't a eulogy folks and really don't mean overreact that we just had one caller who suggested that. Let's see what else we have Well, whatever I have enough time to get into it now because the hour is about to come to a screeching halt, but there's more, there's one hour remaining open line Friday and we will get to it. Sooner than you know. Anywhere. I've got a lot to do here and there's all kinds of stuff that keeps me from doing it like show opens and Intros, and stuff like that. So. From, the Southern Command in Sunny South Florida head. So good. Why That's right isn't l.. Rush Mall. On Open Line Friday. Big Busy broadcast hour eight, hundred wait to two, eight, eight two if you WANNA be on the program, the email address. ELRUSHBO AT EIBNET DOT. US One thing I haven't mentioned. Other than. Ten. IS THE JOBS REPORT TODAY September jobs report the the news was beneath expectations and I'm not talking about the usual. Left wing expert. Expectations was something like. Eight hundred and sixteen or nine hundred and say, wait a minute. There's a reason for it, which is just point. The jobs that were created were less than what was expected given. The economic recovery should be robust now and and many people believe that it is. Wages were up four point seven percent unemployment down now to seven point, nine percent or labor force participation rate. Is Sixty one point four percent here it is six hundred, sixty, one thousand jobs add in September and the number hope for was nine, hundred, thousand to a million. Now, there's a reason for this. Ladies and gentlemen there's a solid reason for this. We've talked about it and you know what it is. And the media does not ever mention it when talking about whatever. Economic news whether it's good or bad. But especially when it's disappointing. The the reason that the economy cannot explode. It's not the reason the economy is an exploding the reason it can't. is due to the states. That are purposely keeping themselves shutdown. These Democrats run states. Are keeping their economy shutdown. In their schools closed. Connecticut. New York. Virginia. California New Jersey. Illinois. You can't just shut down the economy, for example, in New York and California and have it not impact the nationwide economic. Circumstances. And it has been the state of Washington's in a mass at Portland and Seattle in a mass. and. On Hill these states up. And until that, there is a booming economy in these states with. To. Fill. Then, the economic news is not going to meet expectations and why is this? It's by design the blue state governors. Along with the mayors of the large cities. In these states. In New York Governor Kumo. Governor Newsom in California. New Jersey. Virginia. Illinois J. B. Pritzker. When you shut down those economies. When you shut down those states. Then you are going to. Have Large obstacles in the way of a nationwide recovery and they're doing it on purpose this has been the. The thing that we have marveled about these governors. And these mayors. Are, purposely, purposely folks. Seeing that, their people in their states are suffering economically. There's a story out of New York. That half of the restaurants will never open again. We. Had Barry diller yesterday saying it's over in New, York. If they don't open this place up soon, it's over New York is not gonNA. Come back. Well it's not gonNA COME BACK ANYTIME SOON By design and the same thing with California. They are purposely keeping people out of work. They are purposely seeing to it that jobs are being created and it's all to get donald trump thrown out of office. It's all to see to it. They can do what they can to make the economy bad enough that people will vote against trump. And the media is not explaining this to anybody. The media is not when they give the jobs report like today. They don't tell you that it's really hard for the nationwide economy go boom boom when these large Democrats states remain shutdown. Walked down more like. Investor's business daily Biden lead over trump. Cut to three points after presidential debate according to their own Paul. Joe. Biden's lead over president trump has narrowed two point six points. Among likely voters that's a new poll from the investor's business daily trump's rise comes despite registered voters seeing Biden as the winner of the debate. Tuesday. And coming across as more likable by double digit margins. The new investors business daily poll was conducted after the debate on. Tuesday night. But before the news on Friday, the president has tested positive for COVID. Nineteen. So, in this Paul Biden alleged trump forty, eight, point six to forty, five, point nine. It reflects an online survey of one, thousand, two, hundred, and twenty one registered voters. Including Thousand Twenty one likely voters from September. Thirtieth Year October I. Even though even though Biden was seen as more likable. In a two to one margin, trump is narrowing that gap. Narrowing the gap. Between himself and Biden, which is exactly what started to happen in two thousand sixteen. As the polling. Companies. All began to take stock of their reputations. Back in July Ladies and gentlemen I shared with you what I thought was A. Very. Timely and. Well written piece. About the stakes. Of this election. Talked about the flight ninety, three Column that was written by Michael Anton. And it accurately described the states, the stakes of the election in two thousand sixteen. And he's got a book out that expands on that theory and then there was another piece. From Chairman of Board of directors at Claremont Institute. That that came out. In in July. By Thomas. Clinton's name. and. He has now a companion piece that was released this week. It was the the piece in July. Was If you're I'm sure you remember this was a piece in which. He advanced the theme that this election is about. and. In fact, what the the way to define the future of America going forward is that it is about preserving the American way of life. Preserving the American way of life. So He's expanded on that theme and I want to share as I did back in July I wanNA share with you some of the. Some some quantum excerpts from from his piece that was published this week. He says, trump versus Biden. And by the way, what he's done here is just try to reduce this. To the simplest. Explanation of what's at stake? As he can in order to reach. Vast. Numbers of people. Trump versus Biden. According to time clinging stain. Is the choice. Between a man who believes America is good. And a man who is controlled by a movement that believes America is bad. I don't think you can make it. Any more. Simple and I don't mean simplistic I mean simple. That is that is squarely what this is about. Trump believes America is good. You believe America's good I believe America's good. We all believe America's good. We and I don't mean good great and good in the sense America's decent. Place America is a great place for decent people. It is the home. For decent hard working self reliant people. Who Love family who love God who loved their country? Who revere the Constitution and above all who revere the importance of freedom and liberty. And Biden. While his campaign is controlled by people in a movement that believes America is bad black lives matter and t foam. His Ilhan. Omar that whole. Cabal. Believe that America is deeply flawed deeply imperfect and irredeemably. Unjust. And that's a keyword when deem ably, America cannot be fixed in their perverted view. America is beyond all hope America must be destroyed America must be torn down and rebuilt. As a socialist paradise. Those are the people controlling by Biden doesn't think any of that. That's the daily Made Biden does not think any of that. That's why he's sold out on the green new deal sold out unpacking the court. He doesn't believe in this stuff. But. He had the convinced Bernie. Sanders he does. Or better stay that he added convinced Bernie Sanders that he will. Implement policies along those lines. Mr Clinton Steen. Then says I do not think Republican. Leaders framing the election properly. Nor. Are they doing a good job of describing what's at stake in this Mr? Clinton senior exactly. Right. But you know why the Republicans don't think there's a crisis. Lindsey Graham doesn't think we're in a Crisis Mitch? McConnell doesn't they? America faces a deep crisis. A few Republicans in the House of Representatives, understand what's going on but few Republicans really look at this. As America in the crosshairs they just think it's the usual Republican versus Democrat Democrats win some. We win some they get their judges we get our judges and we go back and forth. That's why they're not. Framing the election properly Mr Clinton stink they don't see it the way you do or the way I do. And that's why they're not doing a good job describing what's at stake they think anything is other than the party may lose. And it's trump's fault. So, trump is there scapegoat trump is the Republican party's reason for not framing the election property it's a lost cause. Trump is their excuse. For, not describing what's at stake in this election day think trump's blown it. They think trump's embarrassing and is embarrassed them. Mr Clinton's again this election is a contest between a man. Donald Trump. WHO believes America is good and a man Joe Biden controlled by a movement that believes America is bad or to put this another way. Between a man who wants to preserve the American way of life. And a man who will end up destroying. Republican leaders are too focused on policy. This is not a policy election. This is they resume decision. This is a way of life election one way of life. The traditional American way of life based on individual rights, the rule of law, a shared understanding of the common. Good. Government's role is to create the conditions for freedom to flourish and then get out of the way the other way of life. Mr Clinton's team calls multiculturalism or identity politics this way of life. Assumes that society is made up of identity groups, all of which are oppressed by white males. Government's role in this regime is to create equal in common power for every group as a means of redress. Says there's another thing going on the Republicans don't realize we are living in a revolution. An actual revolution, not just the word. There is an actual revolution taking place. The American left is revolting against America s founded. They are not the Democrat Party of old this is not the Democrats versus the Republicans this is. American Marxist and communist conducting a revolution against America as founded. Now, going back to this. Government requirement to create equal incoming power for every maligned group. As should be immediately apparent achieving this kind of outcome equality requires a never ending redistribution of wealth and power, which can only be achieved with a terrific form of government. This is the same multi-culturalism which is taken over the Democrat Party constitutes a revolutionary movement. I don't mean metaphorical revolution. It's not like a revolution it is. A revolution an attempt to overthrow the American founding. As president trump said in his excellent Mount Rushmore speech on the fourth of July. Republicans should say the same thing Republicans everywhere at every level. And at every opportunity GotTa, take a break, but this piece will link to it at rush limbaugh dot com Tom Clinging Seen Claremont is to go back with. More after this? All right a Susan in Miami as we returned a great the habits. Susan. How are you? I'm great. It's such an honor to be on your show and I think if for taking my call. I'm actually from Missouri. So, I wanNA make two points You know they that with the covert that the symptoms can show up for five days before you actually test positive and I was a little disappointed on the debate the other night with trump you know getting a little angry and And you know the media had a frenzy with that and I'm just wait a minute. What were you disappointed about? I felt like he maybe came off a little bit angry at times. Now let me preface that just by saying that I feel that Chris Wallace is always softer on the Democrats. Then he is on the Republicans and I knew that trump knew that going in so You know I think probably You know felt that and but I you know I just I think that maybe he wasn't feeling at the top of his game if he had symptoms coming on. So maybe Ho. going. It took a little while and get there. Yeah but I see what you because you had to get your digs in it. Chris Wallace. Hannah get your digs in it trump. You're gonNA tell everybody you thought he was grumpy was angry didn't do well higher percent trump supporter. So why are you are but you still want to get digs of this and now but now the reason is you think he was already feeling the symptoms of covid ninety exactly. My theory. Theory. Well. Let me tell your theory. I can't see. I can tell you that your theory could be exactly right. And I can say that based on personal experience. But not with covert nineteen something else. But. Then I'm going to draw a line I'M NOT GONNA to go any further because I vowed I'm not going to be a cancer patient on the radio here. But. If. I look back at things. There were things that I was having trouble doing in December that I didn't think anything about. That didn't explain themselves until the beginning of February ended into January later your theory could be I I don't know how much testing cove and symptoms present. Joining don't. Want. Clue you into something you don't know anything about. Today. When this program opened At at twelve noon eastern time open line Friday opened I was going to open with. Not An announcement when I guess. That's good. A word as any. Yesterday on this program I mentioned. How I think it is important. To stand up and speak out. For American, law enforcement and first responders, our American heroes. We are sick and tired of seeing the police. Unilaterally. Impugned and criticized mis-characterize it was. Not that long ago the stop and think of this. Not that long ago that the police. First responders were considered American heroes. You Go back to nine eleven nineteen years ago. Less than a generation. Everybody thought the police were the end all and first responders they were American heroes people ran into the World Trade Center towers. To try to rescue people if you go back to that era. Athletes loved. Displaying the American flag. Professional baseball players. Carried, large and small American flags as they rounded the basis during pre game, warm ups, and so forth. Pre game ceremonies. Gigantic flags were unfurled to cover entire football stadiums. Presidents showed up and Major League Baseball game throw out the first pitch the national anthem was king. The American flag was revered. It was back then that Rudy Giuliani was wearing a new cap nypd. F. D. N. Y. Fire Department New York these people were considered our heroes and now now look what's happened in our country. Now we have people openly suggesting that they be murdered now we have them being attempted. To be murdered sitting in their patrol cars in. California. We have people laughing at it after it happened hoping they die. In a few short years, how does this happen? How does the entire? Well, that's it's not the entire. How how does? The American mood and the American opinion. Of, Save, police officers or any I respond how does it change so dramatically? To the point I mean look. We've always had young people at think the cops are pigs and they should fry as bacon at their the fuzz but that's always been young people. Now we have. Entire, segments of our population. Thinking that cops are wanting racist murderers like in Ferguson Missouri, deadly lie. About the cop their deadly lies about the cops in Baltimore involving Freddie Gray. Throughout this country that cops routinely lied about and yeah, there are there are some bad actors in the police just like there are bad actors in every. Institution and every line of work in this country. Anyway. This has. So affected me. US. That we produced a video. To Honor American heroes. Are. Police. Law Enforcement First Responders. A, special message. To demonstrate this support, we have in their honor. And we're going to. Debut it today we're GONNA. Put it all over the place and I decided not to. When the news of president trump and the first lady coming down a covert nineteen hit. And was going to do this at noon and we decided not to do it because of all of the attention deservedly. So understandably, so the president's. Situation Covid nineteen got that is the program on today. The site what the heck let's just do it. So we've done it. We've now posted the video at rush limbaugh dot com we posted it at our faith YouTube channel. It's coming soon to our facebook page and yeah, we do have a twitter account I don't. Use it like other people do but we have a twitter account and we're going to post it there and it's going to be posted in a number of places that we hope where it'll be re tweeted and we want you to re tweet it. We want you to redistribute. We want you to send it to everybody that you know. You know we started the. The effort. yesterday, and today we're we're going to release the the video. to continue the effort and we just decided about a half hour to go ahead and do it what the heck. It's time that we stand up for our law enforcement and first responders and make safety for all Americans. A top priority. So the video is available at Rush Limbaugh DOT com. It's going to be available at Iheart that websites going to be available at facebook and youtube pages. And a whole bunch. Of other places as well. Here is Paul in elmont Michigan. Great to have you. Glad you waited Sir Hello. Low Russia's actually Belmont near near grand rapids and sorry it says elmont up there be. I understand I, I'm reacting to something you said In the last hour. The whether whether Amy Barrett would actually her confirmation vote would come up before the election or not and specifically I think what you said was McConnell couldn't promise that it would because he's in a tight race and and I understand tight races and the importance of of of his his winning re election but. What I would say is if you try to equate the importance of his reelection. with the importance of getting ECB confirmed and on the supreme. Court there's just no comparison and it's one of the most asinine things I think I heard in a long time. You're you're running you're running two things together Let me. I heard somewhere this morning during show prep. either. Somebody on Fox was saying I read it somewhere. And it was my first red flag that went up and it was that that Senator McConnell. was suggesting that there may not be a vote. On judge. Barrett before the election. And it's the first I'd heard of that I said what name of Sam Hill. What. What. What am I missing and I didn't hear any more than that then later. I had heard in when I was running this by some other people. Did you hear this somebody said? Yeah, he's got a tight race going on Kentucky so that mentioned that. I don't know that that's why there's not going to be vote onto. That's what somebody said to me. I'm sorry I. Didn't make that clear. And then the politico. Came out with a story in the one o'clock hour would send the exact opposite of all this. That McConnell is prepared to move ahead with the vote. So I'm. Here's the problem for me. The problem is that when I heard and I I wish I could remember. I got too much stimuli too much coming at me at one time, and sometimes if I don't stop what I'm doing a make a note of who I heard say where I'm reading it. Then all got his my memory of what I heard and I heard. Somebody either say or it was either me of might have been videotaping McConnell himself saying that we may not get to vote here before the election. And it might have been a story on the whole. Idea of getting things done before the end I just. Stopped what I was doing red flag because I totally believe that about. Republicans and I wish I didn't But The political piece That came out and I've now I've put at the bottom of the stack here. Political piece came at one o'clock hour and like I might have just stumbled across here. McConnell vows full steam ahead unbear- it. As fears rise of virus outbreak. So apparently what I heard. Early this morning. Bothered a Lotta people and it caused the turtle go out there and clarify. What's going on, but I'm telling you there doesn't seem to be a sense urgency about this. I don't care what these people are saying. I don't think there needs to be hearings. The woman was vetted three years ago. She's already put up a Dianne Feinstein, insulting her Catholicism. This is a train wreck waving the happen. We have proven that we don't know how to stop these train wrecks when they start. Cavanaugh was on verge of being confirmed. And then here comes ballsy Ford's letter that Dianne Feinstein just miraculously was able to produce. And it stopped everything they started working on. Jeff Flake a Republican senator to stop and get another F. B. I. Investigate and here came every one of the damn lies about cavenaugh running rape trains and spiking the punch and all this stuff and not a shred of it was true. And we had to go through two to three weeks of it. And the idea the Democrats are not GonNa do it again me is ludicrous. We run the Senate we control the Senate. We have the votes. To, get this judge confirmed I don't mean to sound. Hysterical here. But this just ticks me off when a history starts repeating itself. It's so unnecessary. We have the votes to get her confirmed. We don't need to do hearings. If we're GONNA do hearings we doing for two days. But I tell you if you open the door to hearings. then. Democrats are coming along already asking for delay not enough time. Not Enough Dianne Feinstein not enough time what. I take him to break. Hang on folks we got more coming back. Former. Era Renters and former apartment dwellers. People that live in apartments and rent condos afford or buy condos. But live in less than a single free standing home. They always got the short end of the stick when it came to getting home security systems installed. Property. Owners like the people you would rent the apartment from they didn't WanNa give renters the green light to install a system. They thought the installation cost and the wires being run. For an annual Renner wasn't worth it because the river's going to leave and then there's messed up, the next redder may not want this mess. That was all before the invention of simply safe. Now, simply safe home security changed all of that with the introduction of a wireless system I keep harping on this, but for a reason. You take the wires. Out of a system where there are so many sensors on doors and windows, motion detectors, cameras, all of those wires. is a complexity problem at installation. It's a complexity problem when you have a bad sensor and you have to track down the the wires getting rid of the wires changes, every makes it cheaper less expensive. It makes it simpler. It makes it easier. But it doesn't change the effectiveness in fact, it may even enhance it. It. Uses Wifi every sensor, every door and window every camera. Every motion detector uses Wifi to connected the bay station. Simply safe makes it possible for you to protect every door every window every room of your home. The system you buy it online and it comes to your pre tested reconfigured your only job. is to put the sensors where you'll want him and it's something you can do it after you do it, you have an intimate awareness of the system. Everything about it if you live in an apartment if you rent, you can do this. You don't have to act the landlord you want twenty, four, seven, monitoring fourteen, ninety, nine, a month Fox with no. Contract go to. Dot Com. They'll throw in a free hd camera with your system when you order simply safe USA, DOT com here is Joe in looking Glass Oregon great to have you sir. Hi Rush Mega Maximus does to you and Catherine and prayers for you. Catherine the president and the first lady. Thank you very much. We all need the prayers I guarantee you. Well I wanted to let you know that I think that this thing with the covert affecting the president will probably just prove how. Uncomfortable? He is, and if he if he can beat this than anybody in the country can and it's time to start opening things up. Oh I wonder where you're going time to open. You Know Day even Rodham Gergen of CNN. Addressed this. Very thing today. And he said that if trump comes out and does what you just suggested. that. It will be extremely unlikeable. It will be no humility if trump comes out and starts bragging about how he beat covert nineteen but a covert nineteen is nothing. That had no reason to be afraid of this. That I. Donald Trump, beat it back. The first lady beat it back. There's no reason to be if he does that said David Rodham Gergen. Then it's the end of trump. said, he's got to be more empathetic. You've got to be more understanding just but you think. It'll show greater invincibility and rebounding positively. We'll be back after this. Know, I keep forgetting. Remind me on Monday. I'm GonNa make a note myself. I've got to tell you all about the Roger ailes documentary also, I will be here Monday even though treatment week is next week we'll be here Monday have a great weekend. Fox and see. When it comes to what's happening in this country and around the world, the best podcast you can listen to is the buck sexton show. Hey, buck sexton.

The Skeptics Guide #815 - Feb 20 2021

"You're listening to the skeptics guide to the universe you're escape to reality hello and welcome to the skeptics guide to the universe. Today is tuesday february sixteenth. Twenty twenty one. And this is your host steven avella joining this week. Or bob novella. Everybody cara santa maria. Howdy jane novella. Hey guys and evan bernstein. Good evening folks. How everyone this lovely week. Warm and toasty pretty good. Man we have. La and like our butts off. Yeah ours we have a pretty some serious no underground. Unfortunately it's at that point where there's an ice dam around my driveway so you have to water flooding the lower part of my driveway middle of february. It's pretty predictable for middle of everybody. But it's supposed to go up to like fifty tomorrow crazy really. Yep yep some melting. Yeah the high. Today here was seventy seventy two. I think that's fair by the way karras at least not in texas. Yes that's why talking about. This is one of the warmest states in the unions. Not today or yesterday or the night before or at least as of this article reading the dallas. Texas is colder than anchorage alaska. Yeah my family lives in texas. I was born and raised in plano texas. Which is a suburb of dallas. My dad lives in plano. My mom in richardson. My sister is in a small town called stephenville and she texted me yesterday with a screenshot that showed it was one degree. And the thing is that we have to remember is that there's no infrastructure for this in dallas none. This is not typical at all well to see how bad it was. We decided to to our our friend who happens to live in texas and get news from on the ground so we actually have on the line with us. Steven blackwell steve. How you doing buddy adventure into us from a bathroom in your grandmother's house is that what my mother-in-law but even worse i was thinking why i kinda got lucky in that regard. She's pretty pretty cold but we we've got nine people piled into a two bedroom house because by brother-in-law's family and my family are without power without heat and have been for pretty much since nine o'clock yesterday morning. Now on top of that it was the dallas temperatures you guys matches the single digits And there there's no we. We hardly got any snow I have friends out in austin. And they've got five or six inches with now more. Ice storms coming tomorrow and thursday. Oh my god air really screwed because when you got six five six seven inches of snow and there's no plows there's no sanding salting. They can't go anywhere. And and we all are suffering with whatever you hear about the rolling blackouts that's a myth for blackout. There's only to deal with a rolling blackout because you can play. Well i think the phone the rolling blackouts are there to try and prevent the total blackout. That you're now dealing with just straight up loss of power. We have one friend who jennifer works to who they in their area which is up by taos. Now they have the rolling blackouts plan around it but most of the rest of the state is just wiped out power. Now the thing about texas guys aren't hit to this. The the texas grid they they are not connected to the rest of the continental now they privatize the and its old. They've had several times before. Were freezes of dumbness not as bad done it shuts and ignored him and every time they do this. This isn't the only time they've done this kind of stuff but every single time they do it. The only people it hurts is the people. Here's here's one for you. Have you guys seen that. That mean flying around. That shows the using fossil fuels to lubricate the windmills blog. Lot and it's not a picture from here a pitcher from sweden from whites four years ago. Oh that happens often. Tv you saying that right now the windmills are. What's giving the little power that texas has is coming from windmills. There's still some nuclear plants and there's still some gas and stuff but it's it's woefully diminished capacity. Yeah the problem. Is everybody's pumping capacity. And i know my mom said she got an email from the city. That said you know. The guidance is unplug. Everything you're not using and turn your heat down to sixty eight. You can live at sixty eight on your heat. Do that to to relieve some of the pressure on the grid. But i don't know if everybody's doing that a lot of people have old space heaters that they're trying to make use up where they can't control the amount of power that they use and lives are in danger right now. It's not safe again. You're you're talking about a place with no infrastructure for for dealing with ice on sidewalk Yeah the ice is almost more dangerous than the snow isn't it. that's why texas shuts down even at a light freeze because there's no way to get rid of the ice and it's who dangerous to drive in walk and these people don't they all think they're the best drivers ever. You're so right for that about texas. I thought it to man. You're literally the worst drivers we were so mean about the oki's that would come down into texas oklahoma and say cancer. We're going like twenty over on the free way. I'm looking at some news items here. Firefighters helplessly watch home burn as power outage cuts off water. Seventeen deaths already. Yeah hi to them. Winter storm man and also. Wasn't there just a few days ago so it was like at the beginning of all of this madness like a horrible forty car pile up or something on the freeway. Hundred hundred hundred and twenty all my current one. Twenty-one car pie. I remember that growing up that this would happen a lot. Twenty big and the problem was to it was early. It was like the time for like six in the morning. Seven in the morning so it mostly or not mostly but there was a significant percentage of a hospital bed. Emergency service personnel. Shift change steve. I'll tell you what you've had a hard time when this is over. I'll send you some meatballs or some lasagna. Whatever you got the weather map is amazing. You can see the blue reaching down all the way from the arctic down to right down to texas all the way to the gulf. And we're we're not supposed to. I mean we're supposed to be above freezing. I think tomorrow night it's still going to be below. Thankfully most of the roads melted off today. So they're they're. They're actually very pretty drivable except they're still have the highway's closed. Well steve stay safe. I hope you get warm. Hope your power back. I'd rather be safe. Keep us updated. Text us when you can let us know what's going on. We'll do. Thanks guys stevie. Why as a french navy. you still live in connecticut. And then for some reason he decided to move to texas. I know i will. Let's move on to some news items. I me start by asking you guys a question so you know that. There were mammoths walking around fourteen. Fifteen thousand years ago in america no like three to five thousand years ago in north america now but they were walking around elsewhere. I said in north america. Yes talk we're talking about north america. So what do you think killed off the mega-fauna not just amendments. But you know there were giant beavers. They were american. Cheetahs camels. lacombe was no horses. This is an ongoing debate. Right was not going to pay. Would you say intervention or was it an ice eight or was it wasn't was it west complicated and he's a climate change in people. Yeah so there's there's two main hypotheses. One is the overkill hypotheses that hypothesis that humans arrived in north america and killed off all the mega von through direct hunting. The other is that it was climate. Change this was the transition from the glacial periods of the interglacial period. We've spoken about before about the younger driest. You guys remember that one. Yes so you had the the ending of the glacial period from the paleocene to the whole of seen around. You know fourteen thousand years ago where it warmed up considerably but then from twelve thousand nine hundred for about thirteen hundred years. There was a cold snap. Like a re really wish vicious return of not only really cold temperature but very dry. And that's really when a lot of the mega-fauna died where they call the dry s not to its driest is from the flowers that are common in the fossil record determines that layer you know in in the in the soil but yeah the question is the question is was that enough to kill off the mega-fauna so there was thirty eight. Genera went extinct during that period of time mostly mammals and mostly the big ones giant trees foster to dance because looks like rhinoceros looking. No they're look like giant armadillo ga cool steep. Can they roll up into a ball and crush you as a role by the arming. I don't think to a ball but it's like a big carapace. They might be able to tuck into it. But we're like a turtle. Yeah yeah so. This was one of those scientific debates. That i love. Because they're you know there's a lot. Scientists are really having to dig deep in terms of like. How do we even answer this question. You know there are different schools of thought that are exploring different lines of evidence. And there's no definitive answer right now. And there's a lot of sub questions within the bigger question of what killed off the megaphone. We talked previously about what caused the younger driest. That's one also controversy was it a comet impacting canada or was it the melting of the glaciers and the runoff all the freshwater altering the jet stream and then resulting in the plummeting. Temperatures and that controversy is raging in the background as well. So what is the evidence. Interestingly there isn't any direct evidence of humans hunting mega-fauna in north america at alternating weight. When there'd be like like marks on the bone from from tools and stuff that we would be identifiable so there's a site in mexico that is a trap meaning that it's a collection of mammoth bones and it appears that they fell into a crevice. The question is was that Engineered by people like people heard them into the or. Did that just happen every night. Every once in a while at mammoth would fall into the crevasse. The zero any evidence to start like there's not a sarawak bit but humans definitely messed around with the bones. For example like there's out seven mammoths every was missing Weird yeah there was definitely some work on the bones for the but that doesn't mean killed them you know they could have just scavenged them or done rituals on them. It didn't necessarily be responsible for killing them. But do we know that they had. They had weapons then they did. They did have a tool kit. They had you know if you recall this. Yeah they had the different toolkits in north america. Here we talked about a lot of stuff. Yeah but now. A few years ago a few years ago paleontologists found the first direct evidence of humans. Actually hunting mammoths was a a flint. Tip like a spear tip in a mammoth bone. That's pretty unless that mammoth fell over on. That's right landed. That however was in poland. And so we have do. We have evidence of europeans hunting. Mammoths not the paleo indians that were in in the north america. At the time steve. We do have evidence at the same time that they were hunting. Other animals that do have say weapon tips not not mega-fauna though not megaphones something more easier to kill now maybe mesothelioma part of the reason for this is that there's just a scarcity of evidence we just don't have a ton of fossils and so you could always say well that doesn't mean it wasn happening you know at some point. We'll find the smoking gun right the Spear point at the spear point a mammoth whatever. We'll find direct evidence of hunting but until we find that you could argue that we don't know if they were actually doing it. And so there's also a statistical argument you can make this. Is the actual news item because we have. We don't have a lot of a lot of direct evidence and there's a lot of inference going on here in terms of what likely happened. Paleontologists trying to make statistical interpretation saying well based upon the evidence that we do have. What's more likely and like for example you could say well if they were hunting them to extinction not just occasionally picking off a mammoth. But if they were engaged in a massive enterprise of hunting mega-fauna to extinction than we would be seeing tons of evidence of that and so the lack of evidence is is all the more telling because of a hypothesis. Not just they hunted them but that they hunted them to extinction but another approach is to as correlation. Oil is to say if the overkill hypothesis is true. Then the extinctions of the mega-fauna should correlate with the arrival and the spread of humans. And if it was caused by the climate it should correlate with significant climate change specifically that younger dryest like the significant drop in temperature. Sounds reasonable a few years ago. Few totally reasonable few years ago scientists published just such a statistical analysis and they concluded that it's the overkill hypothesis case closed. This fifty year controversy has been finally and forever resolved in favor of our side. We win over killer victory. Plan your flag. When did they do this a few years ago. Why didn't they do this earlier than that. Like we've known we've known about these different. What they were doing was looking at carbon dating and then analyzing the correlation between the carbon dating the amount of carbon dated material over time of both humans and the mega-fauna now this now the new the new study says whoa not so fast of course of course they did a new type of statistical analysis which they say better corrects for the error the uncertainty in the carbon dating because they said that the problem with the old the older method is that the uncertainty can lead to false patterns. That if you look for a pattern you're going to see it so we need to fix that and what they did was. They did a simulation of known evidence to say like they took a known fossil record and said we know that a correlates with be over here. So let's do our statistical analysis and see if it retro dick's the known data and if it does then that validates their motto right So and then. They said they said yes. Our model actually works better than the older model. And then when we apply our new statistical model to this question of the north american megatonne it shows that that fake their extinction correlates with a change. So it's the exact opposite of what the other team came up with. Which i think throws us back into uncertainty in my opinion and also wouldn't it not be the case that with the change in climate also comes the change in eating habits yes chain migration awesome and food scarcity. Yeah i mean so it could be that the humans were hunting the mega-fauna because it was cold because there's not a lot of food around but there's that giant mammoth over there. Let's kill that thing and we need more fuel my open and we can get inside and get warm. Well also yeah. We need to make skins. We don't know when these certain types of innovations where what what year range where you're saying we were looking at thirteen thousand years ago. Two thousand years ago so we don't even have evidence of pottery in the in the in north america. I don't think cuba just find like the newspapers from the time they would be all decayed. I get it i get see. I'm not even sure. Like how much tool use. Or i don't know there was where people against animal skinnier probably longer than that and we have evidence of making putting would in the ground and making from a million years that way back. Yeah but i think that pottery only goes back like ten thousand ten thousand thousands of years. You ever not definitely not that long. Yeah so we wouldn't even ever have that animal because they've been those cool studies where they found milk in pottery. It's talking about all over. The world. Or specifically in north america but america fruit for the world the oldest known ceramic artifacts dated as early as twenty. Eight thousand years maze. Yeah but that was in the czech republic china not in north america north america. I think it's like just just under ten thousand. Is that the clovis early closer. The clovis peoples another big controversy. The clovis people have definitely they had tool kit that was designed to kill mega-fauna bigger right and then that was replaced by a finer. You know weapons. That were clearly geared towards smaller animals. So that's that's still that's one piece of but again we've never found human remains next to clovis tools interesting so we're just lacking all these people have all these separate pieces but we don't have the evidence to stitch them all together. So that circumstantial evidence exactly. There's a lot of influential evidences. A lot of circumstantial evidence which is why you can have different schools of thought. But i do love the fact that they're arguing about well. How what kind of evidence can we find candor. Be how would this address. The issue are all the different lines of evidence we could bring to bear and they're making their case and they're just going back and forth with evidence. It's awesome so that's to me. That's more fascinating. The answer itself know whatever the answer turns out to be. That's fine even. I doubt either or anyway i. It's probably both that was my guess. I mean certainly the changing. So here's another very interesting question. So for example the pro overkill hypothesis scientists. Like isn't it. Awful coincidence went extinct when humans were extended throughout north america. And you could look at other parts of the world in that generally extinctions flow in the wake of human migration and it's not just from direct hunting it's also because humans bring rats. Rats are good at killing eggs and things in their nests and they could bring disease also they could change the ecosystem and other ways than through direct. It's also the plants that certain animals and then those animals don't have them to eat and yet. Hey we know that are back this goes but we know that like the native americans in california. What is now california. Were burning the forest. In order to grow acorn oaks. They were they were burning all the other kinds of trees. They were dramatically changing the ecosystem even though they weren't hunting acorn culture but they were burning down for us. It was you know so called cultural burning but in any case yes a humans can have a profound effect on the ecosystem hunting and two other means they do ten. We do tend to sort of devastated ecosystems where we go because we have our population density because we bring other animals with us like rats for example and we explore it resources resources absolutely every hunt and absolutely on. But also you know. It's certainly plausible that the transition from the glacial to the interglacial period was definitely a stressor a climatic stress as well so so some scientists have asked. Well were there. Mass extinctions during other glacial interglacial transitions. And that's a good question one. We do not have a good answer to but there isn't. There isn't evidence that we could conclude one way or the other so we just line of investigation that somebody could pursue at. Some point is plausible. That they would be an extinction just because of the of this transition it. Has it happened before you know. The last time was one hundred and twenty five thousand years ago we can go back then so this is something that's gonna take another fifty years. I think you know of different lines of evidence. You know being brought to bear and i do think i agree with you care. I think that the answer is going to be yet. All of it was multiple stressors. Yesterday was hunting as the weather was a stressor. Yes there were other ecosystem things going on that. We're adding stressors. That was definitely an extinction event false extinctions and it really was like the mega fauna mammals. You know. he wasn't a specific type part of the ecosystem. Disproportionately it was above background levels of extinction. So it definitely needs an explanation. So i have a quick evolutionary question for you. Of course. I know that this is going to be way more new us and way more complicated but by and large. Let's just say like gross back of the envelope. Calculations wouldn't large mega-fauna be less likely to adapt to massive climate shifts then smaller and just just if we were to look at all other variables being equal the bigger. The animal the less likely it is to be able to change its mechanisms for survival. I don't know the the the broader question is so. Some animals are more adaptable. They're generalists than others and specialists. Go extinct much more quickly than generalists. And so the question. Do reframe. your question to be are mega for necessarily specialists. Because they're so large right. I don't i don't know the answer to that question off the top of my head what i do know. Is that the reason why the mega-fauna is so mega right. They get big. Because it's so cold because you want to have less surface area per volume so bigger animals are adapted to the cold but interestingly when the in the interglacial period in that initial warming they actually their populations increased so they do fine when it warms up. That just more food around you know but then when when you know the the continent went dry and cold. That's when their populations crashed. We also see island gigantism which has nothing to do with coldness. It's just wants. Something is like isolated from other things. It just tends to get big. Yeah but what happens is the opposite happened. It's awesome do. Yeah what happens. Is the smallest animals. Get big and the biggest animals. Small dwarf elephants in giant rats. Rats reasoning that. I'm gonna fight you guys tour fetch. They talked about. But thinking about this guy is they. Talk about remembers the hobbit you know the home authorizations is so they were they were a diminutive human species may be they whenever they were like four feet tall but on that island with them were giant rats so they were they were living with rats that were comparative to them like the size of large dogs. Yes actually it might be kind of cute like a kathy barra yet. But it's still a rat all right all right. I know people who've had rats as pets. I can't be cute. Yeah let's move on bob. Tell us about the fifth dimension. Science fiction show. That was a music group from the fifties but not talking about the music group from the fifties. Now what does he tell with there. I listen friends. Researchers claim new insight into dark matter. this past week. They say their model may point to the true nature of dark matter and requires a brand new particle and wait for it. A fifth spatial dimension. That that really caught my attention. So this is the call. Theoretical physicists of the prisma plus cluster of excellence at johannes gutenberg university mainz The recent publication is in the current issue of the european physical journal see. I'm pretty sure. The sea in journalists stands for cool or could be crazy One of those two. So if it's true. I mean this would be a trifecta of science awesomeness. You'd have on one hand. You'd have a potential solution to some of the big mysteries specifically dark matter. There'd be also throw in new physics brand new physics outside of the standard model. And i end potentially could be testable. I mean those three together. That's that's like multiple nobel prizes. I think if you know if this pans out this is pretty early. So let's get a little crazy but let's talk about it now. We've all heard of extra dimensions and science fiction right but in the late nineties it was taken more seriously perhaps ever before when they realize that if that if we could associate or extend our standard model of physics the physics that that we've been using to explain and predict every all the particles and all the forces free can extend that into a fifth dimensional space time than a lot of big mysteries in particle physics would be resolved and that reminds me of cosmic inflation. Right because because the cosmic inflation was is this idea of the exponential inflation after the big bang and that one idea that one idea solve the plethora of physics problems like the flatness problem. The horizon problem. Look them up So this is this kind of reminded me of that reminded me of that and and if this is all true then you know it's a good analogy but if not then it won't be so we shall see so a few years ago a just a few years ago. More progress was made on this theory then when the researchers five dimensional field equations that they developed predicted a brand new particle that just popped out of the math and it was similar to the hague's on much heavier you guys. I'm sure you all remember the higgs. The so called god particle that a lot of people hated that term. I regret saying it now. But the the the higgs field gives mass to all the other particles right. It's god damned. Yeah that's where that's where all there and it's really. It's the higgs field the way to say it so it was. This was the last particle predicted by the standard model and it was finally seen at the elliott in two thousand twelve and it wanted to nobel prize like what like the next day. I mean just like bam here. You go nobel prize of definitely deserved it so now. This new particle would have a tremendous mass a much greater than the higgs and the the the large hadron collider could not create. this could not produce this and nothing on the drawing. Boards can't either which is very disappointing and frustrating. Because like damn you got this great new theory and you want to be able to prove it you. I didn't make a testable right. That's what science is supposed to be so this is a few years ago now. This most recent paper adds a new juicy layer to this science onion. They discovered that the particle that they predicted would necessarily be able to mediate a new force between elementary particles. In our universe with the ones that exists in this extra dimension so this particle would be kind of like a go-between between our universe and the particles in it and these potential particles in this in this extra dimensions that are somehow connected to dark matter. So that's that's what. Got them all excited now. It's really hard to describe. Exactly what is going on with this. This force in the mediation between the particles. So i'm just gonna use the scientists words themselves to describe To describe this They said if this every particle exists it would necessarily connect the visible matter that we know. And we've studied in detail with the constituents of the dark matter. Assuming that dark matter is composed out of fundamental firm yawns which live in the extra dimension. Okay so the talking about firm yawns firm you may have heard of them their common. Everyday particles are electrons quarks protons neutrons etc etc. Th the particles that That kinda would come up against in your everyday life. They're not the super exotic particles that require accelerators to produce all. Now one theory over the years. There's been lots of theories to explain dark matter. The one of those theories is that dark matter is is called for miata dark matter so that dark matter has some basis in firmin's some way so that's that's related to what we're talking about here. So here's another quote from yawns could be communicated into the fifth dimension through portals which is very unfortunate word that they disused through portals creating dark matter relics and firm dark matter within the fifth dimension i wish they didn't use fifth dimension and portals because now people are saying they discovered a portal to the fifth dimension no they did not discover a portal into the fifth dimension. Please tell that to all your friends can't go there. There's a couple of other quotes. They say dark matter could be the result of firmin's pushed into a warped fifth dimension. Let's see one more firmly on the through a portal portal. Again to a warped dimension could be acting as dark matter so that that's how they describe what this new particle is doing in mediating mediating the forces between our particles and these dark matter particles in the fifth dimension. I'm hoping that in the in in the near future. They'll be able to have a better way to describe. You know to describe this and maybe there is no real easy way to describe it except only in mathematics. Because i mean that's how some of the stuff is look at quantum mechanics. Now likely not much would come of this if this was just an yet. Another one of the higher dimensional theories that could never be experimentally verified. That happens a lot but this is the real good here. Matthias newburgh who's ahead of the research team said this. We are now confident that the mechanism we have discovered would make the dark matter accessible to forthcoming experiments because the properties of the new interaction between ordinary matter and dark matter which is mediated by proposed particle can be calculated accurately within our theory. So that's promising. And also they say in the end so our hope. The new particle may be discovered. I through its interactions with dark sector. So they're saying that we may be able to potentially discover this new particle because of the weight interacts with what they call it with this dark sector. They refer to this realm as and then if we need another angle some of them are saying some of the researchers are saying that they they mentioned gravitational waves and that somehow gravitationally might be produced especially in the in the far distant past when when a lot of the when these dark matter particles were created and that they can be searched for with future gravitational wave detectors. That's promising that we we all know about gravitational wave detectors and and their potential and so that's very encouraging that in the future. I i'm not sure how you know how sensitive they would need to be because they're already pretty damn sensitive but once we get some of these gravitational wave detectors in space and have them separated by vast distances they will be even more sensitive and so maybe within a generation of so they'll be able to use these to detect evidence of of this particle and the force and potentially even you know this this higher dimension so All right so down back to earth you know. This is a new theory. You know what this theory's trying to do is think of it this way. Trying to understand matter that's never been seen by using a particle that no one has ever detected and also by invoking a frigging fit spatial dimension. So all right so just calm down everybody you know i mean this is still. This is still some crazy stuff on the other hand. This isn't just sci-fi fan fiction or the result of cranks. But i'll leave this to the particle physics community. See what they have to say. And lastly i'll say that. I looked at their five dimensional warped geometry theory. And it's it's fascinating it's fascinating stuff is true. I mean they invoked things like cosmological brains b. r. a. n. Es if you haven't heard of that brains on senator construct. in this case it's a construct that our entire universe would exist on with all the forces and particles except for gravity which may be tied to another brain and that would explain why gravity is so weak. An all of these brains imagine if there's multiple brains it could be one. There could be too but these brains would exist within this warped higher dimensional space. So this is the theory. This is the model that they're working with. And if this is true. I mean this would be one of the biggest discoveries. I mean. you're discovering not only new physics but a new dimension new particle a new a new force of nature. I mean just to an amazing sweet of discoveries. So i would. I hope that this this is real. But we'll say maybe we'll we'll get evidence. Maybe maybe other physicists won't knock it down immediately. I don't know but we'll see keeping an eye on this one because it is pretty interesting stuff. Yeah but you know it is definitely the kind of thing that you you need to follow over time to see if it has any legs right right now was just like just spitballing. It sounds like yeah. So yeah absolutely what i described as i tried to read a lot of commentary about the paper. I went through their paper. Which is damn dense. Oh my god and it helps. It helps but i really wish. I knew more particle physics to really take apart their their paper. But that's what other physicists are for. And then and what. I'm for in some sense in in trying to make it understandable. All right thanks about well. Everyone go take a quick break from our show to talk about one of our sponsors this week. The great courses plus guys. It always feels good to learn something new.

I was going through the great courses plus i found impossible physics beyond the edge so usually on the edge but this was beyond their so. This was kind of really out of my wheelhouse. But it's really stretching man. It's a holiday talk about stuff. Perpetual motion maxwell's demon. Do you know what that is. It's it's fascinating absolute zero predicting the future just lots of that are just beyond the edge. I like they say in their title and it's very apt and it's fascinating.

The great courses plus dot com slash skeptics. You don't wanna pass this up so go now to the great courses plus dot com slash skeptics. Ernie guys. let's get back to the show. All right keira tells about the birds magnetic world so we've often known that song birds have like an amazing sense of direction. They're capable of navigating over thousands of miles. They do it every year. You know going. From europe to africa and back and they go to the exact same place that they when the very first time and it's been kind of a long and complicated questions similar to the questions that you were asking us earlier during your news. Item steve about like why is it. What's the mechanism. What do we know what contributes to it so there are these different hypotheses some of them have a little bit more weight than others but it does seem to be the case that you know there are a lot of different things that are involved in animal migration and specifically with migratory birds. We see things. Like ole faction being really necessary sense and smells we especially see this. With seabirds with homing pigeons. We think that there are visual cues. That are really really important. But of course a big par that a big part of the research that gets that we go back to over and over is about the earth's magnetic field. How do birds utilize the earth's magnetic field. We're still not completely sure there is. There's some research pointing to things like utilizing these molecules called cryptic rome's that are sensitive to light. Some people think that there might actually be sensory cells that have magnetic particles them like iron oxide particles but they've never been found so even though we don't yet know the mechanism researchers are getting better and better at uncovering what is going on with birds when they migrate. And there's a new study that came out in current biology was just published on february twelfth. And they did some really cool interesting experimentation to come to some interesting findings but before we dive into that. There's a couple of words we need to know. I think that a probably you guys know these words. But maybe not we've heard of declaration and inclination from like an astrophysics or not even astrophysics but an astronomy like a star gazing perspective right. But have you guys heard of magnetic declaration and magnetic inclination. Okay so so declaration which is really important for. This story is the between magnetic north and true north because we know that those are not in the same place right. We've talked about that a lot. So the difference between magnetic and true north is the declaration so when magnetic north is east of true. North declaration is positive and vice versa. When it's west inclination which is a little bit less important for this story but still important to know is the angle that's made by a compass needle when the compass is held vertically so inclination has to do with how magnetic field point downward into the earth at the point of the measurement does that make sense when we think of magnetic fields. They go pole to pole so north south generally there's no right left magnetic field so we measure right left by declaration. That's the difference again between true. North and magnetic north. When we're looking at north south were calculating it both by the magnetic field but also by the magnetic inclination which is the angle that the it gets pulled in towards the earth. That's a part of the north-south calculation. Okay that makes so it turns out. Birds probably have the kind of own. Gpf's and how do they have this because it seems pretty likely that they're actually using a grid their own grid this in a similar way. I shouldn't say the same way in a similar way that. Gps calculate these different measurements in order to to navigate a grid. Birds seem to be doing something similar again. We don't fully understand how but this is how we kind of know. There have been a ton of experiments navigation experiments where birds are thrown off course during migratory event and are able to course correct and find their way home anyway. It's very common for birds to get blown off. Course and for whatever reason they're able to find their way back but these researchers did this really really cool interesting thing they they use this weird box and they put the bird and the bucks an hour just to songbird and outside the box they were able to and this is a really special box that is often used in these types of experiments but outside the box they're able to induce magnetic fields and what i did was an experiment to let's say in a non real world setting change the declamation similar to an experiment they had previously done where they changed a bird's declaration in a real world setting so just like i said the wind blows a bird is full set off course east or west and eventually course corrects to find its way back and the researchers were like well that's cool they can somehow accommodate declaration changes so there were like let's test this experimentally will put them in this box will induce this magnetic field and introducing the magnetic field will take them where they are but will make them think that they are east or west of where they are okay that makes sense and then they look at the direction the bird flies when they open the box because or the direction it tries to fly because the bird with this little birdie feats makes little scratchy scratches on the floor of the box and they can tell by the little launch scratchy scratches which direction the bird trying to fly what yeah it's really cool 'cause it's on its migration path so they know the direction of its path. They're catching them and they're putting them in the box right. Where they're caught so the birds are exactly where they are within their migration path and then they induce a magnetic field to make the bird. Think that it's either east or west of where it is and what they found when they did. This is that the birds couldn't really correct themselves and they were like well crap. That doesn't really comport with the research that shows that the birds could course correct so then they had another idea. What if we change everything. Not just the declaration but also the north-south coordinates and we choose a coordinate on the map. That's outside of their migratory pattern so it's a place a bird has never been but it reflects accurately a real geologic place on the globe. So they did that and the bird was able to course correct god so what. They're what they think is that and this is still hypothesis but it's hypothesis an action that the bird couldn't course correct the first time because it wasn't a real place and because the bird could recognize that there was an interference pattern that it didn't represent actual geography that they were able to ignore that cue because there are little blip sometime soon birds are flying. There are little magnetic blips and if they were constantly reacting to them they might not be able to fly accurately but since they induced magnetic field that approximated a real place on the globe even though the bird had never been there even though the byrd should have no reason to know what that places like it knew how to correct in order to get back on track which is freaking awesome unbelievable. It's unbelievable like they don't they can't say for sure that that's exactly what the bird is doing. You know they're obviously whenever you do a study you talk about the limitations of the study you talk about. Some of the different reasons could be four why they corrected or why they didn't but they're you know outcome there. Hypothesis seems to be in line with a lot of other research. But it's pushing it further. This is not a new area of research but this specific twist on the research is new and it seems to be like chipping away even closer at what's going on with birds. This cartesian coordinate mechanism is theoretical. Still but there are a couple of different. Hypotheses one is that they have like a pure capability to navigate a magnetic grid and the others that they follow more of a rule of thumb. Generally speaking they know that they're let's say north west of where they should be so they course correct until they find other cues that help them realize their back on their migratory path so that could be sensory accused. That could be other. Cognitive cues right. Visual cues seeing other birds that are migrating may be smelling the right smells. That tells them their back in the migratory corridor or it could be purely magnetic. We don't really know that yet but either way it does show that they have a sense of how to course correct and get back into their migratory corridor and that sense is purely based on on the magnetic field lines of the earth and of course the experimental change to them within the little bird box. I don't know it's fascinating. I love this story. Yo it's cool to think about with things like i also think about this with. It's it's not that they're hearing the noise and consciously interpreting it's there it's subconsciously being constructed the same way our visual experiences subconsciously constructed and then just presented to our conscious experience. Yeah we don't be like that is closer that is farther. I shall walk longer tickets. We know we just sent. Yeah and it's just. It's just a sense to us. It's the same thing they're just sensing the magnetic field and their brain is processing that information and they're just reacting to it the wrong way you gotta go the other way so it sounds amazing. But it's like yeah but they're seeing magnetic fields. You know partially the reason. It's so amazing. I think to us because we don't have it and that's always. It's really cool to envision a sense that we don't have it's like a weird exercise in empathy because like we talk a lot about those bio hackers like that movement of people who want to kind of induced changes to their bodies in order to experience different phenomena might talk about bio hackers who implant magnets under their skin and see what it feels like to be drawn to something that's magnetic or whatever and it's not the same right because we don't we don't have certain capabilities and other capabilities. We might have latent in our brain but you know we evolutionary we. They're like this digital. But and other ones we just don't have that kind of architecture that but it's really cool to out experiencing something like like seeing infrared for example or and we have to let us do some of that like we can look through certain filters and lenses but to be able to just live in that world where you have these senses. That aren't the senses that human beings are used to. It's like cool thought experiment. Yeah that's cool all right evan. Tell me about this story. This story sounds like total bullshit. It's the pentagon has ufo wreckage. But they were talking about it. As if it's like an alien spacecraft kinda hit the nail on the head. There steve boy roswell right boy. This getting leszek. Skeptical juices flowing. That's for sure. I got to give you a little bit of history for context bear with me. We're aware of the origin of the term flying saucer thing. It's the greatest cultural contaminations of the modern age. Yeah so i have to give you a little brief a primer on this it is relevant all right june twenty four thousand nine hundred forty seven amateur. Pilot kenneth arnold. He's flying to an air show. And then when he saw bright blue flashlight in the sky near mount rainier. And then you saw nine more flashes of light and quick secession. He could not figure out what he'd seen upon landing. He told people the airport what he'd seen and word spread quickly the next day he was being interviewed by a reporter. He tried to describe the motion of the objects to the reporter as like a saucer. If you skip it across the water that was those were his exact words. Well the reporter took this to mean that the objects themselves were saucer-like not about their movement. And there you go. Flying saucers is born and what that did is it. It went in an age where there was no viral as we know it today it went viral the analog viral era in a way because by july fourth there were newspapers literally hundreds of them reporting on flying saucers and people's accounts all over the place. It was such a hot hot topic at the time in a very short amount of time and on july fourth in new mexico that same year. That's when the rancher found the remains the material remains of something that fell out of the sky. Couple of days later he takes it to the local sheriff of roswell new mexico this year calls the officials at roswell army airfield and the next day intelligence officer for the armed services issues a statement to reporters saying they were in possession of the debris of flying saucer and he actually used that term. Oh boy did that. Set off a storm that we're still paying for today in my opinion next day. Cooler heads prevailed higher up in the chain of command in the airports retracted. That claim they said they actually captured the remains of a weather balloon. We know many many many many years later it was project. Mogul which was a top top top secret air surveillance program in which we were trying to detect The actions of the soviet union in their nuclear tests by sending up sound sensing material equipment into the into the high atmosphere. There were corner reflectors. Yeah that's right so there you have it and so the news item. This week is that. I mean there are so many headlines about this united states defense intelligence agency. Dia released one hundred fifty four pages of partially redacted test results about them at about material science. Ripe up we love material science. The declassified documents contains sections five sections metallic glasses biomaterials materials for advanced aerospace platforms. Metallic spin tropics and meta materials for advanced spes appplications. Okay so what's the big deal. Why was this report released. Well thanks go to a person named anthony breath gallia who is a lifelong ufo enthusiast. He lives in florida. He submitted the freedom of information. Act request back in two thousand seventeen that got the world. The wheels spinning on this particular. Release and it all links. Back to while the impetus his impetus for doing it was about the debris found back in roswell for nineteen forty seven. He's under the assumption that this report these pages of this report or alluding to materials that were collected at the roswell crash how he is able to actually make that bridge based on the report itself is quite remarkable because if you read the report and the report is down there it's it's available on the internet. It has nothing to do with the remains or items retrieved from crash sites at all. They're just talking about the technologies themselves he writes about. This is motivated reasoning in action. Right he says oh you have to quote unquote read between the lines. Of course which means you have to make shit up out of whole cloth according to whatever you want to believe. That's what that and because he spent the years. Putting through the effort the foia requests the initial rejections and having to rewrite it and resubmit it and they finally do release something. Many years later he has to be able to claim victory in some capacity. You can't just say oh. They released a bunch of pages on a bunch of materials science reports. That are that have nothing to do with anything having to do with extraterrestrials or crash sites or anything if you read it. It's just straightforward material science reports which are cool in their own right but have absolutely nothing to do with what he's bridging it too. So that's what he's trying to pin this to and of course the headlines. They're always going to go say anything. Roswell say anything. Ufo and it's an instant headline at least some circulations and some papers in places around the world frankly and it did pick up some trash and around the world. One of the things that he talks about is the their extensive a remarks about how often they bring up nights and all and ti and nickel titanium familiar with. Yes yep shape altering or in other words if you It's it's material in which you and you can you can crush it and turn it into something or it'll apply a little heat. Nfl reassume its original shape. Break breakthrough technology as well. Yeah however these this. This particular science has been around for nearly one hundred years now in which people have been experimenting these kinds of of alloys and materials. That will do exactly that. They predate the roswell era. Let's even and what he's claiming. Is that the tin foil material. That we know about is part of the wreckage of the roswell balloon and project mogul. There's all sorts of stories about this being this very smart super technology. That only at the time for some reason could have could have devised could have come up with responsible for everything having to do with their technology at the time. And there's no way apparently that people or even the us government in their secret projects could have been possibly using at the time. That's not true. That's not true at all. And i'm not even convinced that there were these materials that he's claiming were found there. It's almost taken. He takes it for granted or he makes the grand assumption that these meta materials were found there as part. And it's not even it's not even a discussion as if it definitely was it was part of it and the reason why well because forty people said so forty. Different people have forty different stories about this material in which some people handled it and other people saw and they said it acted in strange ways. And you would crush it up and it would go back into its original state like nothing they'd ever seen before but they're all stories and they're all very weak stories after all talking about There was a boy there. Maybe this the son of the rancher who found it will he picked up a piece of the material and pocketed it and held onto it for a long time and then eventually later gave it up to researchers who then determined what its properties were and then another person also was out there and he found it and he buried it in a box out in the desert so because it was so unique and it didn't wanna be he had. He knew something special there but didn't want get caught so he buried it for ten twelve fifteen years and they went out dug it back up and then got into the hands of scientists who determine what it was funny how it all came about actually around the time that these materials were being written about were being discovered were being used in the nineteen fifties in the late nineteen fifties and suddenly a lot of people have their memories jogged or memories chart. Oh yeah. I remember that material. I saw that roswell oh that was part of the crash. So there's your stories about that level of week not even evidence. The chain of evidence was broken. Yeah entire entirely broken and we know of all about the ability of memories. We don't have to harp on that because we talk about it so often so many topics that we do talk about. And you're getting people from the nineteen sixties seventies and eighties to talk about what they were experiencing what they read what they were doing at the time. Back in nineteen forty seven. I think you're going to have some contamination here and there among their stories. Yeah the narrative takes over. It's all know the narrative now there's no actual evidence absolutely but he said okay. The and i'll wrap up with this. She said based on the document documentation received the regalia said. It appears the recover debris exhibits the extraordinary capabilities by remembering their own shape. When bender crush some of these futuristic materials have the potential to make things invisible or compress electrostatic energy. And even to slow the speed of light sir. Yeah it's kind of what else slows the speed of eighty march. Every right exactly and light passes through stuff. It goes slower than its maximum speed which is in a vacuum so water slows. The speed of light glass will slow. That's how lenses work. Slow this being the light material that returns to its shape. You mean like rubber. What did you say. Steve it kind of slows it. It doesn't really really slow it but it kind of slows it. Because it's still going you know it's it's usual speed but it just takes longer. 'cause it's going a more circuitous path but yes can say that it slows. It goes slope more slowly and other mediums or media but technically it does battling it out there bob. He said that this these technologies represent a literal quantum leap beyond the properties all existing material known to man to so hyperbole much there and you know obviously when you invest your life in in a narrative a story and you go through a lot of effort new. You're pouring everything you have into it you cannot you cannot break yourself from that you cannot suddenly on more yourself from that you are invested to the maximum. Come what may and whatever the results and breakthroughs that you supposedly have our. You're going to claim victory no matter what the result is all right. Thanks seven well let me one. We'll take a quick break from our show to talk about one of our sponsors this week. Kiko hey guys. Kiwi coat really is amazing. They create super cool hands on projects designed to expose kids of all ages two concepts and science technology engineering art and math. How are those every kid. Every kid needs to know this stuff. Kimiko's mission is to help kids build confidence creativity and critical thinking skills. We know how important they are and have a whoa awesome experience while doing it. Each crate is designed by experts and tested by kids and teaches a new steam concept. Each boxes delivered monthly and comes with all the supplies needed for that month project plus detailed kid-friendly instructions and an enriching magazine field with content to learn more about the crates theme guys. Here's another awesome project. So they give you a laser machine that generates a laser you build. The machine generates the laser. Then you connect these mirrors that are on that are on servers that can move and you could make geometric shapes with the laser on your wall so it teaches you a bunch of different things at the same time. It's a ton of fun especially if you turn the lights off it's really cool. I think any any age group will enjoy this. Everything you need to make science technology engineering art and math seriously fun delivered right to your doorstep. Get thirty percent off your first month. Plus free shipping on any crate line with code skeptics. That's thirty percent off your first month. That k i w i o dot com promo code skeptics. Let's get back to the show. Jay z time. Okay guys last week. I played this noisy. Any guesses like an ice kind of sound in there somewhere. Is it sounded. Like cooking kerry cooking on the brain tonight. I know exterior veterans. All right well. This one was definitely difficult. Got a lotta guesses these t road and he says i hear water slapping on a boat. Then an aircraft low pass you have me stumped beyond that and not not a horrible guess with keep going. We have a listener. Named jordan mueller. Muller at the i listen my gut was saying creaky. Ice splashes some kinda vibrating vehicle passing with a doppler shift has to be something passing someone on a lake in the spring when the ice starts melting wpf but a couple more listens and it is a total face palm my brain decides to remind me i have heard this before. The creeks of ice turned into cables under tension and the vibrations. Turn at the sound of rollers. Has to be a chair. Lift or brother. I give you an a plus plus for effort play and you will face palm yourself when you find out what it is. So i'm gonna jump right to the winner. We have a winner from last week. And the winner is oliver baier and he's jay. Thanks for your great noisy. Which i always enjoy. Thanks for featuring me the other day. I guess he gets a previous. Who's that noisy for this week's noisy. I am at a loss of what what it could be. I think i can clearly hear the doppler effect something coming towards you passing and driving away since it sounds like the sound is recorded in water. I'm going to say is a high speed boat. That is passing by another boat on water. And he now that that is correct however there are more details so this is an ac seven five class of boat. They are unique to the america's cup. As far as i'm reading here there are seventy five feet long. They seven tons and they're entirely powered by the wind. They could reach over sixty miles per hour. And in the key thing here is they. They actually travel on. Hydrofoils built by carbon-fiber sixty miles per hour is absolutely incredibly fast on water. So the person who sent this in said that it is basically like a formula one car on the water. That's how fast these things are. So let me play for you again. So it's kind of like think of like a regatta type of boat but incredibly more futuristic and Just beautiful looking. So when these things get to speed. They're barely barely is like a fin in the water. That's it that's touching the water in a couple of places because they're riding on on the foils so they're really cool. Check out the sound again. That was it zipping past the boat where it was being recorded very very cool. I highly recommend you. Check out the video. You can look up an ac seventy-five class boat and you'll you'll get to hear that yourself. So i have a new noisy for this week and this noisy was sent in by by two listeners. Actually jere coucilman mennan. Sorry man you know. Come on. And then to w olson okay. They both said there in the same exact noisy basically five minutes from each other and they both see my cool guys so i wanted to use them both here. It is of course. My attraction to the sound is quite obvious. Let's test care how well does carreno me after all these years care. Why do i like that particular. Yes of course has blasted like sounds. This one is more complicated than you think. There's multiple things happening. And i'd like you to give me the best description that you can email me at. Wtn at sky dot org. And don't forget if you heard something. Cool send that to me too all right. Thanks j. j. ever couple of announcement that we should talk about. You are correct. Next is coming up. August six and seven. That's friday and saturday. August six and seven nexus sister. This is mainly a save the day. You could check Nec dot org as details. Develop and we are tentatively scheduling rescheduling for the second time are denver extravagant answer. This one is going to be on thursday november eighteenth in denver. Where can they go to find. Information on that j you can go to the skeptics guide dot org forward slash events and you will see the denver extravaganza and the denver private show happening on two different nights. One on the eighteenth one thousand nine hundred a couple of emails. The first one is a follow up to the Lie detection segment jay that you did last week. This comes from fred. In canada and fred rights big fan of the show. Thanks for that. I am a police officer and just wanted to make a quick comment about the lie detector. News item and following discussion in the episode of believed that the comments reinforced misconception. About police interviews that i have seen many times. It boils down to a study demonstrated. People are bad at determining if someone's lying to them even police. This is scary in the context of police interrogation. I hope that is a fair summary of the conversation. The episode i think the issue with this is that it ignores the context that most police interviews occur in and the training receive interviews. Take place normally after a large amount of evidence collection and investigation has happened the purpose of the of an interview to compare the content of the interview to the evidence at hand. While someone's emotional state is certainly something to notice. It is only a piece of what we would call a constellation of facts. I could say more on the topic. And i'm aware that there are issues methods. Some police us at times but this message already feels pretty long. Thank you for your time. Dedication to your listenership insights skepticism Thanks for that email. So actually i wrote back fred. My my sense is. I do think we hit this point harder. Which is why. I wanted to follow up. I agree completely with With fred and i think that was the actual point we were making. I don't think that his summary was with my sense of what our conversation so what he's talking about. This is how. I think. I would explain it. There are two basic ways. You could tell if someone is lying right. You could do a content analysis or you could do some kind of functional analysis. The functional analysis is like are there is starting around. What's their body language are. They do they look like they're stressed. The content analysis is are. They is what they're saying plausible. Are they contradicting themselves. Are they contradicting evidence that we have etc the only useful mess method. I think we're there's actual evidence added effective is the content analysis is actually doing the investigative work. I said during the police. Do the investigation when you interview. Somebody already have all the information we talked about this actually not too long ago on the show. That's partly why you need a lawyer. Present is if they're interviewing you. They already know a lot. More than you can possibly imagine you know in a hypothesis and they already have a hypothesis right so you may not be aware of what that is but in any case so yeah. I agree that the but the trying to decide if someone's lying based upon their body language or their tells or whatever that nobody does that well as we said last week it's fifty four percent at best. It's a coin flip and having more experience or training or being in a profession. That has to do that. Doesn't help you have to just forget about it. And i think the d every even deeper skeptical lesson which i think i would dry is that people are always looking for a shortcut right. They're always wanted to have some kind of trick. One crazy little trick that you use. As in the same exact thing comes up in so many different contexts. We've interviewed for example. An economist on this show a few years ago. Who has the same thing. You could play the stock market based upon a functional analysis. Or you could or you could do a content analysis. You could decide. Is this company overvalued or you could play astrology with the stock market and decide look for patterns and try to hack stock market and get the shortcut to cheat and i think the whole self help. Industry is basically cheat and a hack and a shortcut on psychology as opposed to doing all the hard work of actual self-improvement. Yeah or like brain games. You're gonna get smarter by playing this one simple little game. No you have to do the hard work of anything that is worthwhile. There is no shortcut or hacker cheat or magic or whatever. And i think this is just one the idea that you're going to find some tell where you could know instantly if someone's lying that is such. It's so alluring. It's so appealing that people keep looking for that in so many different contexts and it just rarely does anything like that every now it just becomes a. It's astrology a massive distraction. Just do the hard work. Yeah i agree. A lot of people always looking for shortcuts. Came up with a really quick and easy way to prevent people from doing that. One simple trick that works all got me for three nanoseconds long. Are one more email really quick. So this is a follow up to care. Piece about sweat and d.c. Detox at yes. Yes so i'm not gonna anyone specific email. We had a bunch of emails in the theaters. a couple of themes and there was basically questions diving. A little bit deeper care was talking last week about the fact that you know a lot of the infrared saunas boss on us. We'll sell the sauna treatment as a detox treatment and we talked about the fact that that's basically nonsense that you know the we don't sweat to detox. We sweat to cool down. Your livers kidneys. Do most of the detoxing and when they spas talk about detox or not talking about specific toxins is just sort of this vague term that they use as entertainment purposes. Only you know kind of thing. So number of people asked some version of the question of but i heard on this other podcast. I read somewhere that you know. Saunas are actually healthy. Or good for you or that you know there is actual toxins in the sweat. So yeah of course everything. It's always more complicated as always more nuance. It's always deeper. So i did a bit of a deep dive on this trying to answer a couple of questions do we sweat out toxins and is there any evidence that saunas could for your health. There's yeah there's a big difference between like is there. Are there medals in our sweat and is our sweat a mechanism by which we reduce arm. Exactly exactly so there are. There's a tiny amount of heavy metals in our sweat merge. We mentioned she mentioned it. But is that a meaningful way that the body excretes those things and so there's not a lot actually of research on this. But i did find one review that found that you know it's not it's small but it's not negligible meaning that it actually could affect the amount of say mercury in your body. The amount that is being lost in sweat. But that's because it's such a tiny amount to begin with that even the there's orders of magnitude of course like more sodium in your sweat than there would be of any of these heavy metals but the thing another doctor writing a writing about this topic pointed out that. Let's say you go into a sauna. You sweat off a couple of leaders or whatever you lose a lot of water through sweat. There's some tiny amount of toxins in the sweat. You might actually end up having a net increase in your ultimate toxins because if that water had been instead filter through the kidneys the kidneys would have done a much better job at detoxifying that water from your plasma basically that plasma then the sweat glands did in fact if the kidneys reduced the amount that they're processing that they're making urine in order to come to hold onto water. 'cause you're sweating it all out. That actually may have a net negative effect on your because again. The function of sweat is to detoxify. The through is to call us off now. That's true but you know biologists complicated and just ask something has a primary function doesn't mean it might incidentally secondary functions so it might be true that certain things do get excreted through the sweat and that that may be biologically important. But it's not something that you need to maximize by going to a sauna. Saunas certainly suck toxins out of the deep fat as as they were called out. And that's really the point that i'm trying. Is that if there is metal in your sweat. It's probably very likely that there other places than there are medals and that still are liver or kidneys. These are areas. That are better at at quote detoxifying this and ultimately if you have high levels of metal this is something that you need to see a physician about writing. Yeah don't go to the sauna because that's not going to. It's not going to get you to the place that you need to be right right but yes did some of that too will come up with the sweat and may actually be biologically significant but it's not the primary mechanism and it was not something that you would manipulate as you say. Now let's get to the other question because you mentioned cares. There is some benefit to saunas mainly for cardiovascular health and then one email there was like oh they listened to remember the name of the podcast. Where they somebody quoted these dozens of studies showing how saunas have all huge range of health benefits. Which immediately set off my science based medicine red flags. So i kind of knew what i was going to find. I hate to say that. But i mean i've done this so many times i i can smell what. The writ literature is going to be like alternative. Well that was one thing it was some of it was published in the journal of alternatives. But even when there were articles published in mayo clinic proceedings and other mainstream health journals that here's the bottom line. The level of evidence is two things right jack and shit now it's just things. One is physiological studies stuff is happening studies. So when you when you're in the you're heart rate goes up. Your blood pressure goes down. And your blood vessels become more pliant. And you're cooped your left and trickier ejection. Fraction goes up and your blood. Perfusion goes up. But you're profusion actually goes up to the skin and decreases for your oregon's just generally got a good thing Interesting but that's a short term effect and of course you're getting dehydrated so a sauna thing is from what i can. Tell from reading the physiological literature. I don't see how a sauna is different than taking a diuretic that will lower your blood pressure to you. Know and then if you get dehydrated that will increase your heart rate too. So all of those effects seem to be generic effects of dehydration and the the effects are also short lived. there's also the second kind of evidence epidemiological where they look at people who go to saunas and see if they have better health outcomes and some of them do but of course. It's very hard to control for confounding factors because even if you're trying to control for known ones because people who go to saunas may do other things that's not a randomized cohort. There are almost no controlled trials. They're small the results are. Here's a phrase that always perks heterogeneous. So when they say the when you do a meta analysis or systematic review and you say the the randomized trials were small and the results were heterogeneous. That means they're all over the place and and the other thing is i did look at that alternative medicine journal summary of the evidence which is going to be the most favorable and it was very the tone was extremely favorable and then even they can't say that there are proven benefits. It's always just. There's a suggestion that there might be benefits and that we need we need to actually do clinical trials and test the net health effects. They basically haven't been done so i'm very dubious about the benefits of the sauna like health benefits hardcore health benefits. It feels good. It's a good warm down or whatever after exercise it may be good for your helps. Your muscles relax. Everybody just like saying you're gonna have reduce your chance of dying of heart disease like we don't have the kind of data that we would need to say that with any competence. The suggestions in the literature are all that preliminary stuff is happening kind of studies which then require a boatload of speculation and also there's definitely risks to going into asana there are case reports at least case reports people having sudden sudden cardiac death in asana because they got dehydrated or they stayed in too long or they let it was too hot so it's not risk free and there's no proven health benefits. The physiological changes are all short term. Like i mean thirty minutes as kind of studies that are being done. And it's not one of those things where i'm holding my breath thinking. Oh yeah this is going to be some major health benefit to this. If there is great. I would happily report that when two studies get done but the kind of studies we need to know if there's actually net health benefits to frequently visiting asana is have not done. That's the bottom line. The the studies that i saw were also very specific to specific cardiovascular. Problems like they might have done a study with a certain number of participants who had this very specific cardiovascular or heart issue and then they did sauna trials with them. It wasn't like a general protective factors or just like normal people going into the sauna are less likely to have you know harms or whatever but even still it's like yeah of cour- stuff happening you're sitting in a super hot. Dr room keeps sweating. Yeah your cardiovascular system is going to respond to that situation but yeah i could see certain heart. You know issues it. It may be better. Summit may be worse. It's not you know and again like use commonsense if something if you feel dizzy if you feel unwell if something feels wrong get out a lot. A lot of the mainstream medical outlets summarizing. The evidence for sauna emphasized that like just be safe bottom. Line is don't overdo it. Don't stay too long. Drink a lot of cool water before and afterwards you got to replace those that fluid that you're losing don't overdo it etc We we've talked a few years ago about the sweat lodge thing where they having that is part of his spiritual ritual and pm. Di di in those sweat lodges because it's like not good for you and don't get me started on hot yoga. That stuff is now. There's a great doc about bickram yoga on on netflix. If you wanna watch us all about bickram and what does it come down to sex like they all do raising those go right shaving when his pants good right on like pizza. Let's go on with scientific. It's time for science all fiction. I come up with three five fact to real and fake. Then i challenged my panelists got to tell me which one is the fake theme this week. I've been meaning to do this one for a while. I'll probably do it again. I think this is really fun. The etymology of phrases phrases. We use all the time but you may have no idea where it came from. It actually means love it okay. You're ready to hear three phrases from the number. One happy as a clam was originally happy as a clam at high water. Because that is when clams are safe from predators i remember to the term nitty gritty originally referred to the small debris at the bottom of a slave ship and then came to refer to the slaves themselves before the volving to mean tiny details. I number three. The term bury the hatchet derives from native americans who would literally bury a hatchet as a symbol of peace accord. Carrico first clams. I think they're happy. 'cause doing pearls no way. Those oysters from predators. Are they really. Are they less safe from predators of water. I don't want this to be true. And the bury the hatchet one sounds like we always attribute weird things to native culture that i feel like we didn't do correctly so i don't know i have no idea which what this is a shot in the dark but i'm going to say it's the hatchet. Okay jay happy as a clam. The first thing that popped into my mind was that clans almost in a weird kind of way. I think that they're smiling. Or whatever right. But i'm fairly sure that that's not the reason why there's something about that. One that rings in my head. So i'm gonna say that one is science the second one the nitty gritty. Yeah i mean you know. Knits and grit right. And then they're saying that this is What would netzer bugs. I don't know that's interesting and then care doesn't like very the hatchet and i just don't see okay. This is why. I think that carrot is correct. I don't think that native americans would bury a useful tool or metal that they have to have metal. Were they getting the medal from anyway. I wonder you know with the hatchet. Could have been stone tools. Sure i don't think they'd berry tools like that. I don't think so. I think that was a fiction. Okay up see happy's acclaim. I've always heard happy as clam at high tide but high water same thing. I'm sure you wouldn't just change when stupid word like that. That's what that means same. It's not. It's not the gotcha. But then i was thinking the gotcha might be that Clamps are safe are they. Are they safe. And i was trying to think they would be safe from terrestrial predators. So maybe it's the maybe that does make sense on nitty gritty. Got no idea. I mean no no idea at all but for the hatchet deer that strikes me as potentially problematic as well as often. I'll go with the guys say that's fiction okay. Aunt evan happy as a clam okay. Safe from predators. People consider themselves predators. You have to think about this. If you're going to say happy as a clam obviously a very human centric thing. You're not thinking of other animals in the context other than the clam itself because that is when clams are safe from predators so unless you considering a person themselves predator as a person not a well i get dappling but you see better human came up with it and did they consider themselves the predator in this context. So this little unsure about this one. Let's just put it that way The nitty gritty. One never heard this before. no idea. and it's you know a bit disturbing if you ask me in. that gives it some ring of authenticity. I think the bury the hatchet one. I'm gonna break from the group. Save that one is a true. I do seem to have a recollection of Learning this way back when that this was in fact a a symbol of peace. And they would do that. There were several symbolic things that native americans did. And i believe this was one of them. I had the clam one. I don't understand know that one is just something not quite right for me about that one. So i'll say that one's the fiction. Happy with the cleaning. I'm not happy with this. all right. you all agree on number two civil start there. The term nitty-gritty originally referred to as the small debris at the bottom of a slave ship and then came to refer to the slaves themselves before evolving to mean tiny details. You guys all think that one is real and this one is the fiction hut. Thank goodness. I never before. That is however a myth about the origin of the phrase nitty gritty. But it's not true. There's absolutely no reference to support it whatsoever. It doesn't have anything to do a bugs. So we don't know we don't know what the origin of nitty gritties. We know what the first recorded use of. It is that that you can find actually fairly recent. It's it's an early twentieth century. Really saying and it's one of those. There's a lot of phrases that that have repeat a rhyming word. You know like nitty gritty and so those tend to catch on just because they're like of the the poetry of it but yeah just means it means the tiny little details. It's always meant that it never really meant anything else. There are there are references going back to one thousand fifty six. You know that kind of thing so was actually more recent than you might think so one here so nine hundred fifty six for example. This line from alice children's novel like one of the family. You'll find nobody comes down to the nitty gritty when it calls for naming things for what they are. That's one of the earliest references to another one. Nine thirty seven there was a song titled that nitty-gritty dance. That's those are the earliest references. Never sure exactly where the ultimate origin of it was but then at the stuff about the slave ships are just made up that there's no evidence at that's correct but it sounds kind of like it makes i mean i dunno it computes the idea of it being knits and grit like acid so grit things a little tiny things that rhyming thing but the some of the represents always reading were saying that. There's a lot of paranoia about phrases being racist and so people almost like look for connections. Sometimes even when there isn't one you what i mean so that might be why that myth sorta came about Well let's go back to number one happy as a clam was originally happy as a clam at high water because that is when clams are safe from predators that is true that is science it whether or not it's literally true that clamps are safe at high waters beside the point. That was the meaning of the phrase. It's very common for phrases to be shortened over time right you guys know the rest of like the one that irritates me is when people say the proof is in the pudding sting. Yes proof of the pudding is in the tasting. So short did there's a tendency to shorten phrases over time just for efficiency long sentence but then the the meaning gets bastardized then misunderstood and then it could morph into something else. It's very common that they take the opposite meaning originally meant have ironclad yeah ironclad and copper bottomed and cover bottom tripe ripe part. That was great so happy as a clam goes back to the early eighteen. Hundreds this there's a reference from eighteen. Thirty three in the harpies head kentucky never occurred to him to be discontented. He was happy as a clam at high tide and high water. Yeah so that's that goes back a while. Probably originated in new england. Where there's a lot of clamming going yep all right going number three. The term bury the hatchet derived from native americans who were literally bury a hatchet a symbol of a peace accord. That is true that is science. I loved that one because it sounds so fada. It does agree. It sounds so much like something was made up. Be right because you would think it's got to have some more nuanced meaning. But no the that they've done that for centuries and there are lots of examples going back to the you know that we know of going back to the sixteen hundreds even the seventeenth century and it was. Yeah it was very ritualized. They had a hatchet. That had all. It was very ornate. Would they would bury it for like big like when multiple tribes have an accord and unite. So there's many examples of this in history of native american tribes doing this ritual. You know it literally burying a hatchet and that's where the the phrase came from. It's interesting it's one of those things. That sounds fake. When i hear it sounds like something made up at its. it's well it looks like you made out nice this week. Steve again again getting tired sweeping us. Because i'm not even close. I'm feeling a little tired on this end. You guys still have more sweeps against me. That i have against you this year. All right yeah. Yeah but it's interesting that there's been a lotta sweeps in both directions so far. You know it's interesting. I think it's just nothing. I think he just randomness as clumpy right. And this was this was care. Said this is a pretty much a crap. Shoot unless you actually heard one of these. You know now all week. All i got to hear from steve is the only one science fiction. Swept you guys blah blah blah. Nikola always steve the great global. Yeah a great closer. That's why you'll be remembered by all right. Evan give us a quote. Nothing in life is to be feared it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more so that we may fear less marie curie. Well i like it. It's great a very good quote. I like it but it doesn't that strike you as a little ironic. Yes it. I mean maybe we should fiercer in things like radio activity or at least respect it. You know so obviously you know. We have marie curie died of the radiate radio activity from the substances that she was researching that was she was trying to understand. And i i get what what she's saying but yeah there's a balance in there where you respect the power of the things that you're studying to. When did she say it. Was it earlier in her life. That's a good point early on. She had no idea but by the time her husband died of well actually. He got hit by a car but he was with a carriage. Whatever they were back that he was suffering the effects of radiation poisoning. When he died she may have changed her a to a to modify my earlier statement. It took years for them to start seeing the effects. Remember for like years. People were going and getting radiation bad. Or drinking radiation. Were drinking it. They were putting it in their face was creating it for its health. And that's only ended that only ended when the fda bandit that's what it took like in nineteen forty seven or something. But i did the. I would say that the sentiment there is that we shouldn't fear the unknown. We should study at and try to understand. I think that's a. That's the the good way to frame that but you gotta historically. It was a little irony in there okay. Well thank you all for joining me this week. She thanks honesty. Thank you we will see you.

He's it's a four profit business. It is please shows visit capitalist. Trust me. What's going first of all J? Yes. I'm gonna come over there to you. I wanna I wanna I wanna ask you. What do you think is the most important news topic that's going on in the world today? Well, I think everybody knows what that is today. We want to hear your opinion. It's the Mueller Muller Muller. Are you? Sure. 'cause I've heard it both ways I have to. I don't know what. You learn Mueller or ready for your reporting Mueller, which one will leave respond to Steve what do you think the most important is Mullah case? And but if you wanna throw shade at him you say Mueller. Well, we do we want to. Shade at somebody just mispronounced their name or though the word little in front of anything. They're doing little podcast for you. Well, y'all are wrong on all accounts. The hottest news story right now. At the moment is Michael avenue has been arrested taken into federal custody for trying to extort twenty million dollars from Nike. This douche this. If you live in a glass house, don't throw stones. It's just oh, of course. Michael naughty, was stormy Daniels. Lawyer in Ed a potential was going we've got to run for president until the whole domestic abuse thing came out, which he was cleared of those shards on Manasota them charges. Yeah. So he was. Yeah. But now he's been arrested. He's been taken in federal custody. You did a bad bad thing. If he did a bad thing on. Bad thing. The Miller report is so yesterday. So to no collusion. But no exoneration what are you have going on in the world net. I mean, do you wanna do you wanna hit because? I one thing. I I wanna talk about is something that Trump brought up and that's the illegal aspect of this entire investigation from the beginning. I mean was there enough cause for them to even spend fifty million to even investigate this for twenty two months? Two years. Was there enough? Because Trump says this is a legal will let's look at that. Because in and if anybody missed we did a special special podcast addition had fun. Sara Gonzalez couple of days ago on Monday talking about the Muller investigation. Do we dedicated the whole episode of that? And so we kind of unpacked that whole deal, but you have to go back to the source you have to go back to where did it start? When did it start? Why is Barack Obama never mentioned in any of this? It started under his administration. It started under his administration that standard would not be happening. Had Donald Trump in office had George W Bush been in office. It would not have happened in that way. They would go back, and they would be accusing an investigating the president who was sitting in the office at the time this whole deal starting. So you have to go back. It some point in time. We have to know what was that conversation that Loretta Lynch had on the tarmac in a private jet. Bill Clinton, we need to know what all was in the. Emails that Hillary Clinton was sending on a on a unsecure server that was deleted thirty thousand some odd emails. They just uncovered a new batch of them. They have to go back and look at this wiretapping thing the Steele dossier, fusion GPS uranium one. I mean, I mean, I could list things for days that need to be looked at James James cone. Jim Komi Clapper Brennan, Adam Schiff. I mean, he's alive. What's that proof proof? Yeah. Exactly. I mean, there's so many people that need to be, you know, Brennan Clapper. As I said Komi. I mean, this guy's a snake in the grass. So, you know, the DOJ the CIA the FBI the FIS a warrant all of these things that we now know about that were there every single one of them are sketchy and anybody listen to this knows sketchy. We know Donald Trump is sketchy. We know Donald Trump. I mean, the dude his name is Donald John sketchy Trump? We've always know, Don, Trump sketchy, ask anybody in queens. But you know, what the dude is for America. He's pro America. He's not he's not for white America. He's not for male America. He's not for heterosexual America guy is making he's doing things for America. And there's the evidence and the proof to back it up. So here's a guy that regardless of his past, regardless of the foot and mouth disease that he has and things that he says on Twitter, and the in the mishandling of certain things with the media in speeches, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, the guy's pro America. But you can't tell me you can't tell me that somebody who goes out and creates a fake notebook full of lies like the steel dossier and brings it in. And it that is enough that somebody like the late John McCain who goes in a create a Fiso warrant to investigate a candidate. And then once he becomes president to unseat the president. It's a coup d'etat. It is. A coup. It is an absolute act of treason. Makes me mad. It does. Because ultimately the end of the day every single person sitting in this room everybody, I know wants the greatest America that we can have we want America to remain the strongest most powerful economy force military. We're blessed to be in this country. I've been all over the world have been in every third world country. You can imagine I've seen the worst of the worst. We're blessed here, and we want it to continue being that way as America have its flaws. Of course, it does. But come on folks, we gotta get this together. So almost said shit, right? Been the first time. Won't because of this lack of, you know, exoneration the left says, we'll no no, no, we still need to look into you know, abuse of power. Conflicts of interests. Powell stretching of Justice conflicts of interest. He's got to be guilty of something. And I mean, he he's spray tans, you know, and it's killing the ozone. I I don't know lot there. Yeah. There. Jay, do you think Donald Trump should stop tweeting? I love asking you that question. I mean, I know that he can't now he can't we wouldn't know what's going. I don't think he took forty hours off from Twitter like I just imagined on Trump's sitting on the toilet three AM, but naked with Twitter in hand is I phone and the only thing you can see the whites of his eyes the rest of orange except for the bikini lines where he's got speed veto playboy sticker. On his right there on his Anguilla. No muscle. What do you think he took off forty hours? I think it was one of those things just let it ride. Let's just let it ride. And then you know, he got up yesterday and said good morning. Have a great day. Yeah. And so and then followed it with Meg America. Great again. If you can't if you can't just get a little bit of a sense of humor. That's there. Now, see I like that when he's not being a total jerk. I like that. I like, I'm all for being a smart ass will so late here recently. I wish that Donald Trump. I I agree with our friend. Dan, Crenshaw congressman from Texas who said Mr President stop talking about Senator McCain it gives a little too far after a while. It's like, okay, we got it. Mccain was war hero. But beyond that, he didn't end. Well, in my opinion. He did some things pretty shady not the least of which was pushing forward that Steele dossier the fake dossier because he was so anti-trump. That's that's not good. But yeah, things like that bother me. Like, it's just you know, you don't have to call everybody names. But again, I get it. I think he was because he's Donald Trump. Right. But I think he was so defensive at first now he doesn't have to be now I can say something like good morning. He came out in a speech yesterday and called himself fully exonerated, see. I love that when they say he's not exonerated. But Trump says I'm fully and completely exonerated. F you to the media? He's like, hey, you know, what you lot about everything else. And you're gonna keep pointing this out. So you think this takes us now? I mean what what's the next step? They're going to keep on with this thing. It's not as one as one Senator tweeted yesterday. He's. He said this is not the beginning of the end as the end of the beginning, which is their way of saying they're just getting started with this. So now, they're going to cry out wanting a full release of the Miller report and that they're going to it. It can't get it. Because it's illegal to get it because there's classified information in there. So you can't just release that to the public. You can't just release that congress. So they're gonna say, well, we don't really know. What's in it? You know, kind of like ObamaCare, we've gotta pass it before we know. What's in it? You know? And so nobody's they don't know. They don't know. So that's going to be there. Fall guy is that document this unreleased, and they're going to continue talking about it. Well, did we know he's not when you use verbiage like he's not fully exonerated. We'll leaves that element of doubt. There's a question in your mind saying, well, he probably did something but doesn't every president? I mean all wants to my knowledge. Seem like there's been a president in the past that hasn't done. Something Miller is more straight up doodo of Millard Fillmore was straight up. Let me tell you that guy had integrity and he loved his wife, and he milked his own cows. The last honest president we ever had when was that Millard Fillmore what year was that is a little while how long was he president? I'm really kind of pissed off at you guys. Don't know history. Everybody's looking at each other. With these clueless is going Millard Fillmore. That sounds like a character on the Simpsons. One of those guys he'll name the president's. I can speak the Greek alphabet alphabet, again, delta Epsilon, eighty yo. Macron Piero sigma tau hoops along fee, keep CO mega. He got too much time on your hands educated man, or that guy in college that you sat in his door. Yeah. Yeah. As the one that messed up the curve, we got that. Right. My my Greek. Professor my migrate professor. He said you're going to be that guy in the old, folks. Home slumped over a chair on L flew to delta. Fillmore. Pentathol had a bat a forum because he was fat. Millie? Okay. Yell scream into much Chad brighter show. Yeah. Yeah. It is Miller I'm inviting Bob Muller to come sit down with me in studio. Twenty two and silent. Herbert we're going to hang out party foul. Steve snapchat. We're going to talk investigations Muller investigation. Fill more over here. How what years what were the what did you Kate yourself with office from eighteen fifty to eighteen fifty three? And so, you know, for a fact that he was good to his wife and a great, I don't even use married. Nothing about him. So so now, we're just going to keep on going with this. Because what we can't stop more money to be guilty. Let's spend more money got to be guilty. Yeah. So at this stage in the game what we're doing is. We are paying our tax dollars are going for opposition research. These people are just digging dig and dig and dig and dig and they're using taxpayer dollars to try to find more and more. But if you keep this narrative up, here's what you're going to get you going to get a presidency in twenty twenty that is not liberal. It is leftist. It is socialist it is off the charts right now the two leading people in the democratic race for president for twenty twenty are the unofficially announced. Joe biden. Who is going to announce in April? He slipped in announce the other day because he's old as dirt, and doesn't know what he's talking about. But, but he does have some very, nice hair plugs. They make him handsome is hair plugs. Joe Biden kudos. He is a good looking seventy eight year old man, I'll note that when I'm voting he's got great hair plugs. But he's already said that well, you know, the the speculation is that he would choose Stacey Abrams. Former gubernatorial candidate for governor Georgia which is inherent in the word, gubernatorial. I apologize for the redundancy. But. She's crazy straight up crazy bat shit. Crazy. She is I'm sorry. Mom. She's crazy, but anybody that knows Stacey Abrams. No, she's not. She's a socialist leftist. She must take guns the whole thing Kuku. So Joe Biden is the woken of the woke. Then you have. Then you have Bernie Sanders believe it or not another another octogenarian. Steve winces when I say words with four syllables. Yeah. There's more than four in that one. The. Democratic Party who is so. Progressive has picked to old white dudes and are leading in the polls to be the next president United States, Bernie who honeymoon in Russia. Let that sink in who praises bread lines and Fidel, Castro and Kuba. This guy is Kuku could chew. Did you see him when he busted his head on the can't even take a shower without cut his head open? And he comes out not with a little little bandage. He comes out with this. Big fat piece of luck at Rolla toilet paper stuck to his head right there. That's the picture. We need to get is Bernie with this thing. And I mean, it's like all over, and it's like this cookie old mad scientist, doc Brown whose inventing the time machine and trying to figure out the flux capacitor. And this is what the Democratic Party is coming up with is too old crusty white dudes and then Kamala Harris who slept her way to the top. And in fact in. Crazy Cory Booker and John Hickenlooper, and I'm gonna run I'm going to run. On the democratic ticket. Yes. One hundred percent, you got the Yang dude who who says it white people are about to start turning on Asians. And you know, we're going to start killing mass killing Asians because we don't like Chinese people. It's just lunacy here. So in twenty twenty if we're not careful. These people's platform all the platforms. Are we gotta get rid of Donald Trump? We gotta get rid of the guy who's created a four percent growth in GDP. We gotta get rid of the guy who wants border security. We gotta get rid of the guy who has said, look we're going to fight terrorism. We're going to Bosch ISIS. We gotta get rid of the guy who has made the economy explode who's creating record unemployment numbers for the blacks and Hispanics, a guy who's made jobs available to everybody access a guy who's done a ton for women who's done a ton for minorities who donates his paycheck one hundred thousand dollars every quarter. He just gave his paycheck homeland security. I mean, here's a guy who are you kidding me? This guy is he behaves like a I'm gonna say it like a Saint he behaves as president like a Saint does. He say things that are crazy. Yeah. But as he made an un-american move. No has he has he invited has he invited Kim Jong own into the Oval Office for state dinner. No. But I mean. Look at look at they're not firing missiles over there, are they? I mean, you know, this is crazy. This is ludicrous. But you want somebody that's going to give you to use all your money to give you universal health care to give you a free college education for everybody to make sure that everybody has a universal income of thousand dollars a month that you're going to tear down all the buildings in America and rebuild them. So that they are now green and good to the environment. You're going to get rid of the farting cows, you're going this is this is absolute lunacy. We wanna repeal the second amendment or at least emended. But everything will lose value. If we do that. Of course, everybody's paid the same and everybody goes to college. Then why try what good is first of all bachelor's degree these days virtually worthless on. That's what the kids nowadays are finding out. It's not necessarily their fault when they graduate either. But they do need to make sure they're picking degrees. That makes sense. Remember that up Assode party fell was drunk, and hyper which they're not more than I mean, there's more than one. It's behind you C J. That's the problem. You're now talking common sense, not just come on. That's you know. So if a bachelor's degree right now is virtually worthless in it is virtually worthless. If you're not willing to go get your MBA your masters degree, follow into a doctorate PHD or something like that. Look. It's like high school two point. Oh, people heard me say this over and over again, you've got I if all of a sudden, it becomes universal that everybody gets it will then it's like having a high school diploma or GED, it's acceptable to everybody. It's worthless. It becomes worthless. You're not I mean, look everybody's up in arms. Here's the hypocrisy. Everybody's up in arms because Laurie Laughlin and what's her name? This mary. Lizzy Huffman, they go out, and they spent all these people. You know, this rich privilege they go out and spend half million dollars to get their stupid daughters in college. And when I say stupid, I mean it by the true definition of the word, these girls can't dot is and cross T's. They put them in the get them in college. Just so they could say they had that college experience, and they went to such and such. Okay. And everybody's up in arms saying all they didn't on it. They didn't. They don't deserve. That was all because of somebody else paid for it. They got privilege. What the hell are you think you're trying to legislate when you're trying to make universal education free to everybody? It's the same frigging thing. You didn't earn it? You don't deserve it the expectations just came way down. Exactly if everybody gets it. Nobody has to work for my friend. Jesse Lee Peterson my friend Jesse. I love Jesse Lee to and he's controversies hill. But up if you're not watching Jesse Lee Peterson we'll get Jesse on the show. I've been on his show timer to it. But I love Jesse Lee Peterson look up his interview on YouTube about. Of white privilege and affirmative action and all that because the girl ease interview, and she's African American young beautiful young lady, and she's talking about she went to college. Because of affirmative action, Jesse Lee. Who's a black man said, oh, I'm sorry. She's like, why are you? Sorry. He said we because you didn't earn it. You didn't you didn't do anything to deserve it. They gave it to you. You know, you gotta go watch it. It's really fun. And you know, she probably is very smart. And she she ever spoke educated. But she was shocked that he responded that way. And he was so blunt about it, and so black and white, and so common sense about it. He was like so what you're saying. Is you got in because we gave you a loophole to get in. Yeah. I'm proud of that loophole. And she was proud of it. She's like, that's the only way I got in. But that's not a compliment to yourself. You know, it's really not. So that's an excellent point. I'm fired up the gloves frigging off when it comes to this. I'm pissed off. I am. I am mad and I don't ever get mad about. I mean, like, I'm tired of the abuse. I'm tired of tad of it is James Brown says we need we need some audio clips we need Jesse league on beta male. And we need we need James Brown. I'm tired of it. We need those clips we just hit it anytime. Candice tad of candy Queen of the we're going to get it on that. I need a button, I need a doctor Instagram. Talked about his daughter got into a u u s. Yeah. He. He said my daughter got in on her own, and there's no she's not going. We're not going to jail. Good. A bit him love. He had donated seventy million to the university back in two thousand thirteen for a fine arts music entertainment business development center. So he he deleted it. And I'm sure he's getting some heat because of that, you know, quit deleting tweets. Okay. So okay. First of all, and I know people say, well, it's been done for years. People donate the universities and things like that. Okay. That's fine. You donate to university. And they build a building this is different deal. This are they provide scholarships or things like that? Look, there's some merit in that. I think it's just like if if I could have gone to Clemson university on a couple different scholarships. And there's no question about it. Because my father was a graduate of Clemson university. I had some special favors from people that he knew there that were willing to say, you know, what? Yeah, we're willing to take a look at you. That's just like the, you know, Amer do you realize that your statistics of playing major league baseball increase exponentially? If your dad played major league baseball, there's there's merit in that actors just how stuff happens. Yes. Exactly actors and actresses tau stuff happens. But what was going on with this? College thing is they were greasing the palms. And then bribing people in Photoshop ING their kids on the on the crew. Crew on the rotea in and they never rode a boat in their life. This is got. Just lunacy. I mean, this this, and they were bribing coaches, they were bribing officials and changing test scores. So it's a different deal. But no back to Bernie Sanders back to the politics of the whole thing. This whole we have this entitlement culture participation trophy, these environmental non events that were in kids for an and they come up with this idea that they deserve all this crap. And they don't you can't get educated playing fortnight kids. You can't you can't. We had a kid this morning that texted because he wanted to come home from school. You remember when you used to have to go to the office in or the nurse's office when you were sick, and they had to give you permission to call home and say, hey, can you come pick me up pretty sick? No now, they got frigging cell phones. We had a boy our boy this morning. One of our boys who who calls from the bathroom on a cell phone. He wasn't in the bathroom. And I'm like this pisses me off to I'm like come on get over it. And I was a big girl. And I told him that I said boy, you're gonna have to push. Not close on not going to compete up. Even if I was close while my hand hurts. Well, I don't feel good. I'm just not having a good day. And I said, well, you know, people have to go to work when they don't feel so good up. Yeah. Yeah. Not having a good day. What else is going on Italy? Well, I wanna talk about the patriots. But I wanna go high. And then I wanna go I want to talk about this too because I'm a little bit educate uneducated on a couple of things here. Okay. We'll talk about it. Oh, gosh. I don't know if I'm educated enough, but we'll try we can get through it. Try not to make fake news. The only thing I don't know is I didn't hear Bob Kraft's statement. I wanna go that's my low. Okay. This tangle high. You take me where gronkowski could you imagine being twenty nine years old and retiring he just announced he was going to retire. I think over the weekend on Sunday. Thank you can afford. It. Probably can what's impressive about the gronkowski family is all five of those boys. Played pro ball that their dad. I mean, he trained him from childhood. It's like the manning family. Obviously, rob was the most successful one of them. And and gronk like almost thirty. Yeah. I mean, you gotta takes a beating. So absolutely. You might as well come out while you're healthy. And enjoy the fruits of your labors and thirty years old. I don't wanna play pro football. Yeah. Stomach, you know, and they've done its grueling. Yeah. He's he's been part of a winning team. Yeah. That's okay. I hate the patriots. Yeah. Understand that good for the but I'll wrongs going out now. Robert Kraft, Bobby. That's the reason he's going out now because he may be he's going to be brought up now. Oh, man. Don't don't dawn you heard it. Here are Trump gronkowski's going to Jack shack Asian spa trust me. But then again graphs he's got six billion dollars care for his seventy seven seventy eight years old. But anyway, well, of course, he pled not guilty to the two counts. But he did, you know over the overnight apologize and said he knows that he has disappointed his family his coworkers his fans patriots fan. So he has apologetic. Or something not guilty. Keep that on the down low. Okay. So this is what I need people to understand. We're living in a world where reality and language facts and truth have been redefined they've been subjugated to emotions and feelings. So yes, I'm not guilty. But I apologize for what I didn't do. See it doesn't people say this stuff. And this is the world we live in and people go. Okay. It's not you. But you're not guilty. This is the world we live in a day. And this is this is problematic. If you did it you did it if you didn't do it don't apologize. If you did it don't apologize who you Paul jaaz to who you polish. He's not married. He's not married. So okay. You went into a place, which could potentially be some kind of deal with self self sex trafficking, and all that. Okay. Well, that's on. You don't do that. Don't do that. You don't need to apologize to me. Right. You're the douchebag unit to fix yourself. Don't apologize to me. I don't need your apology. You don't need my forgiveness. I don't care. What you did? I I care that you know, people are being human traffic and stuff like that. And you were you're exactly part of the problem who is contributing to this issue. But I don't need you to polish Demy apologizing. Got to quit apologize for everything. It's like he's apologizing for basing himself. Sarky? Sorry every married, but he has family, and it was it's, you know, it's it's an embarrassment for the family. I mean, you're right though, go go purse, privately apologized to your family or do you? Do you owe them public apology age? Bob kraft. Compartments as good job he along with about a dozen other defendants are trying to or they filed a protective order to not let the surveillance footage be released. According to the police that probably will be released because there's no reason to not allow it to go public and the police that it's it's very graphic. Hey now. So he's crazy. He has a Anderson video there is there is a deeper concern here, obviously with trials to watch anything graphic that has Robert. Man boobs. Nobody wants to see that the first time. It's like. What are you doing? My Lord, you're the world to. Yeah. You know, if you want to apologies are one thing. And I get the sentiment. I understand people. Want to apologize for things and stuff like that? But look man, you did it on it. Go on not a single one of us is without sin, and some former fashion you wanna make amends. Okay. Will then. Help a sex trafficking. Yeah. Exactly. You're billionaire your multi-billionaire go out there and help people, you know, fight sex trafficking. He could fly out of right Nevada in pay for it out there, and it's legal. Yeah. He can. With the solutions. You really gonna come? You know, he could go to Thailand, build an orphanage and really these street. You know, what you can go to Vegas man, right on the strip ended out there. We know who Steve's looking out just fine. The girl slot machine at three AM not playing you know what she's doing? As to do things. He should go to the bunny ranch. Oh, my Lord. We do actually have an orphanage in Thailand pulls young girls off the streets because of the sex trafficking trade, and there are things. I mean, I I encourage GAAS like that. Don't you words, a worthless? I mean, if you're going to do that, then go and everybody's live. Donald Trump was photographed with the owner of the massage. I'm tired of James Brown Todd at it. It beta male. Okay. Well, speaking of apologies. Oh god. More. Well. Barbara, Streisand or heart van come on Sista. Oh, I don't know that she thought that one out. Does a lot of thinking. I wonder how many Eminem's we could fit in her nose. Did they have that on video was it like? We're off the Robert Kraft. Because I read it in text, you know, on a story what she said. So what she said was that any kid would be thrilled to go to Michael Jackson's Neverland. That's true. And his needs were his needs his sexual. Sexual and she put the blame on those children's parents. Well, for allowing it to there's some blame to be put on some parents since their kids to grow man's house to spend the night, you're. Michael Jackson, had your I don't mean that lives. Dolls is bedroom. Ron white said if you found a life size woman doll in my room. You know, what I'd be doing with it? So anyway, well, Michael Jackson digging up. He thriller. Video now though. Oh kristie. She said that I think the another piece of that that oh that just get ya is. She said it didn't kill them. She said they got married, and they have children didn't kill them. Now. Budgeted you die. I went to check since never land rich. But did you die? Motion. Like, I was is he dead. He says telling me that call him a culkin's doing. All right, MacAulay Culkin. No. And those and those kids may not be there. Just doesn't mean that they're doing. Okay. If anybody in the room watch the never land finding Neverland documentary haven't not watching it. It's like the McDonald's. I don't wanna watch it. You know? The years that I was performing in that we did the show in a couple of weeks ago is having a when I was looking at their little calendar thing it had it had. Oh, no. It was it's the one I'm going to April twentieth. Lake charles. Golden nugget lake Charles seeming April twentieth. It had a tribute to Michael Jackson show. And then it had plus Frank Sinatra. Plus started add names like it was a tribute to Michael Jackson show, then they're like, oh, a we gotta add some talent here. Other names at the wall. Like, we just have Michael Jackson show because it's creepy. But. The music Industry Michael Jackson's too big to pull his music or anything like that. No matter what they. Is the biggest biggest deal ever? Biggest deal ever. So. We find out things about people. Whether it's Bill Cosby. Michael jackson. In the list goes on that you find out about these people that were won't say heroes, but they were conic in your life, and they were in, and you think these are just sweet little innocent people, but they had these dark dark secrets, and you wish that in some cases that it would die with them. But let's face it. These are not victimless crimes. These these things are still you're you're talking about with Michael you're talking about a child you're not talking about a consenting adult. You're not talking to Harvey Weinstein here who these girls had a choice. They had a choice. You're not talking about Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton did she had a choice. You're talking about children who are enamored with their hero this icon this legend, and now they're going over here for the slumber party. In Michael's doing the freaky freak, you know, PYTI on them, and it's not victimless. So for Barbara Streisand to come out and say what she said. Is stupid. It's asinine. It's idiot. It's crazy Chapala joust. Well, of course, she do. Of course, she did backpedaling put if you're so stupid to say that in the first place, then you're too stupid to apologize. That's my theory, Mark. That's all I'm saying if you too stupid to say the stuff to begin with you're too stupid to apologize because if you say something that asinine why in the world are we going to trust your apology? Do you really think that Barbra Streisand is sorry about anything sitting in her house in Malibu? No. She doesn't care. He's moved on. She's playing out. Sorry about the whole statement. Because I still go back to the parents. We've all known even I mean. Stable, and those parents still allowed those kids to go there who Michael has not been stable. He did not come from good background. And I'm not trying to give him excuses or any Joe. Far, pepsi. Now, he's drinking seven up. Come on. You know at NASA stamps for Nate another son astronaut. What I need another. Too soon. I was in fifth grade when that happened. I watched it live on TV jokes about this next day the next day because that's what we do is comedians. We write the jokes. That's like. Steve Harvey said when a tragedy happens we got jokes written that afternoon. But we can't say them, you know. Yeah. Not unless you want to apologize later. You're absolutely right. About of this brilliant minds. You know, Michael Jackson, the these these are all these talented people wash makes me worries worry about you. Because you have a brilliant minds cracked coming out pretty soon about you twisted this while never run for office. Tell us to secrets now little skeleton toes going to pick out from the closet out. Do you know why that happens to tell you whether that happens it happens to it? Whether it's a television evangelists, whether it's a. These folks Bill Clinton, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein. It's real simple deals. It's because they get above accountability. No one feels powerful enough to get in their face and say, you're wrong stop. I'm. My friend, Mike Lindell that has my pillow dot com. So Mike will tell you his story his testimony. He said I was on drugs so bad now is just with Mike the other week. He's at I was on drugs, so bad that my three drug dealers held an intervention for me and said, we're cutting you off, and that's funny. But disturbingly crazy. I mean, it's it they he has drug dealers gave him an intervention. So when you get to a point of you are so far above accountability. Go back to a call maims go back to Jimmy Swaggart. I remember, you know, go back to Jimmy Swaggart. He tell you right now, he got above accountability. No, one was willing to come get in his face and say, you gotta stop this is wrong because these guys get so high and powerful that people they have they first of all these men and women they hire. Yes. Men around him. They hire people that are only going to agree with them. You gotta have somebody that that's gonna get in your face. You gotta have that person your life. And so, you know, having looked at that from that perspective. I try to have those people in my life. You know, I don't go anywhere party. File stays not there with me, which is a lot allot. He tells me no lot. But I've never been, you know, Jupiter Beach Florida looking for you know, a spa Saugus. Yeah. That's the deal. These people get above accountability. And that's the problem. No, one first of all, I don't think that anyone is designed to be famous. I don't think human beings are designed to have that many eyeballs on you. I don't think we're created for that. I don't think that we can handle that. That's why people who are famous go into the enclave, and they have the people around they can trust. And and do these things the smart ones. Do they live in their located communities? They stay in their little circle of friends and network, and they don't get outside of that. Because you're not mitt to have that many eyeballs on you, can you imagine coming out of your house every day and have them 'paparazzi sitting across the street. Just waiting to take your pictures. You drive out miss dumb. Nobody's designed for them. So the other part of that is when it comes to the sexuality problems that we see these guys and girls, they have everything handed to them. Well after awhile it gets boring. So now you have to delve into experimental things. Whether it's drugs sexual addictions, sexual weird things, you know, whether it's. Or what did you say? That's not that weird. You're just weird. But but what a whether it's pedophilia. Whether it's set a masochism whether it's bondage, you know, the news report just came out the other week about the anchor in LA, the the news anchor in LA who was Shelvin crackup is, but and and vomited in his latex mask while he was having a tryst with his boyfriend at the hotel where they met up after meeting on Grindr. I mean in this guy died he choked on his own vomit from you know, one rock up your butts fine, but don't do to apparently. So this these people they get to a point where it's like this like normal relationships are not enough anymore. And so now, we gotta go out there and get freaky with it. I suspect the reason somebody like Barbra Streisand comes out and says, well, this is this and this this because listen if you really uncovered the bubble of Hollywood in perversions that are going on out there. If you could really uncover. We don't understand the rich and famous we have no idea the world, they live in enemy tell you. It is freaky Daiki is weird in this could be minor compared to what she's seen surfer self. I'm sure. Because you know, who is Mel Gibson that came out and said, look, it's it's a city. You know, Hollywood is a town. That's that's driven by pedophilia in perversion, you know, sex trafficking, and all of a sudden couches. Yeah. So. Where's our couch? That'd be the new studio. We don't have a casting couch to tell them her. Silence. I like you. What else? Well. You'll like Chick-fil-A. Yes. It's good right is good. Now. Jesus it is they they have a very clear message on where the founders the owner stand San Antonio said you are not welcome here in our airport. They said, no, no, so Chick-fil-A has been banned from the San Antonio port. Steve has an opinion, but do have an appeal. I don't think it just has to do with the they're the owner's position on lesbians, gays and the other letters. It doesn't matter. But where I think it comes down to them not opening on Sundays, which I think I believe that. But I believe that the airport wants them open on Sunday, and they wanna be able to serve their customers on Sunday and Chick-fil-A is going to say, no, it's not gonna happen. So stay is one hundred percent wrong. Well, I think that too because they serve so anytime you're anywhere where there's a Chick-fil-A plus other restaurants, chick flay line is always much much longer. Always moves much quicker. So whatever they're missing out on Sunday. They're certainly picking up Monday through Saturday. I don't think it's enough to cover though, when the line that they have the because it's Luffield here. Deputy kills. It kills there. And so all the mass Chick-fil-A is at all the airports. Their stated reason was about LGBTQ their stated the airport. Stated reason was about LGBTQ because they believe they give to hate groups and stuff like that, which anti algae TB Q behaviors which being interpreted means they believe in the bible, and churches, and they donate to churches and ministries, which say that homosexuality and homosexual relations are a sin, but the same bible in the same churches say that any form of fornication outside of what God ordains, which is marriage between men and women if you believe the bible to be true, then as the word of God, then those things are sin in. That's all they're saying. They're not saying they judged the individual. They're not saying that they condemn the individual. They love the individual. They. I love the person, but they say your actions and your lifestyle are not pleasing to God. Okay. We still love you. And they hire them still in God, still loves you. It's gonna hurt Chick-fil-A not to be in the San Antonio. They don't care. I it's good publicity to be. Well, of course, it does. So anytime, you do a boycott of Chick-fil-A, they're they go. So so here's but here's where it's a slippery slope. And here's what's dangerous. So if you're gonna come out and say because of your religious expression and believes in your faith system. We're going to deny you the ability to business here. Gets difficult. Can you imagine going to a Muslim run restaurant and saying yellow too close to sharia law? You throw gaze off of the buildings. We're not gonna have your Schwartz here. I don't even know swarm Muslim. Sh- warm Indian right? I apologize to all of my POC's. So anyway, but can you imagine that happening? That's not going to happen. Because then they would get thrown off the building exactly because but but Christianity is free game you can attack. Christianity. We we can call them hate groups. We can call. You know, look, there's there's not a religion. You're not a major religion in the world that condones homosexuality and says, look if you're gay you're gay. I I got people in my life that are Gaya love. God bless you hug your neck right now issue right on the mouth agent kiss him right on the mouth right now. And he loves it. And I've done it kissing right on. Put Chick-fil-A in San Antonio airport in the long run or not. I don't know. But he, but your point is long if they're paying rent on that space in the airport thing open one day a week doesn't matter. They're not making royalties off a Chick-fil-A sandwiches. But if I'm owner their port, and I'm I want my customers flying through my airport have they're gonna fly through there. They're gonna come have people aren't coming to San Antonio just for Chick-fil-A. I don't I know that they are. I don't know. I don't know. I don't want you to put your business in my shopping center. If you're not gonna have you're paying rent doesn't matter probably is rules. They know that the people expect it to be overstated reason has nothing to do with Sunday's the stated reason LGBTQ, right? What Steve is saying everyone in America knows as not open on Sunday. And we lived through it. We don't like it. Because that's when we want it the most when you want it the most, but I respected. All right Chick-fil-A tomorrow, chick fil Monday for lunch. But everybody knows that Chick-fil-A is a value based business model. Right. It's not a profit based. It's not a whatever you wanna call it. There's a list we could go down. It is a value based business model one of their values. We closed on Sundays. Because I don't want him to I want them to open their value. They value that I wish more companies were value-based. I wish more companies did do business based on how they value think. Hobby lobby's one of them, I'll be lobby closes you. Go into a hobby lobby store play Christian music over the radio that is there that they are up about Disney's don't await this. None. They're not saying Cristobal either. So, you know, I look I'm on the side of Chick-fil-A. Always will be true. At Cathy was a good, man. Dan, Cathy's a good, man. They're good guys form to give you the shirt off their back. You know, and they don't care. They don't care what your persuasion is. They love you. Right. I love you. Judgment. There is no judgment. They're the best place in the world. Mcdonalds is trying to copy their model now by putting people out in the drive through. Fishing thing. I mean, Donald doesn't have it down yet. Close. They don't they just started. And I think it's great at least they're looking at another model and being like, you know, what that's working for them. We're good. Let's do the same thing. Again. When I keep saying the gloves are off. I we're going to get some t shirts made the gloves are off you can wear it with your Magherita hat, and you can get it through the Chad pray through show. Like when Chick-fil-A comes into Manhattan and everybody saying, oh, no we boycott because this is their hate group all these anti chick fillet posters and signs start showing up shut up. I mean, give me a break. These people have built something off of their faith off of their values. And they look at something. And they say, look, we believe that this this this and this, and this is a sin sin is a religious expression. First of all sin. I it's not wrongdoing. It is sin means I am selfish independent negative of God's. Will sl end selfish, independent negation of God's will. I am looking at what God wants for my life. What God says is best for my life. And I'm saying now, I'm negating that I am selfishly independently netting that from my life. I'm going to go my own way, the book Romans chapter one says that that people they run towards iniquity, they run toward it's because it's in their heart. They run after it. They. After you know, there's no truth on their tongues. Their feet are, you know, in their hands or quick to shed blood. These are things that where we say we basically thumb our nose at God stick a middle finger towards heaven and say I'm going to go out and do my own thing it breaks God's heart. When you don't live, according to his pattern that is the statement of scripture. These people say we believe in the statement of scripture, it is the word of God us, therefore, we are going to say to you. You are on a dead end road that is going to end in destruction for your life. We believe that what we encourage you to do is to change off of that road and get on the right road. That's all there say where I went to a church in Austin. And his the motto was come on. And there's always room for one more hypocrite. That's where they're saying. We're not here. Judging you this is this is the word of God. This is what we know to be true. This is how we understand the word of God. But whatever your sent is. I'm not judging it because I got enough amount. I'm trying to fight through. And that's how they are that we are all sinful. Right. And so this is needed turn into the church. Power hour, CHAD'S church, but I will say this. The apostle Paul said apostle Paul says that even my righteous deeds are filthy rags before God when he says filthy rags in the Greek language he's talking about a minstrel, Pat. He's talking about menstrual ministration wreck. He saying this a filthy rag. Even my right my good deeds. So these people aren't saying, hey, we're still fractious. And we're setting ourselves up and looking down on you, and judging you now, it's not that at all. We're not anti you were anti action. And this the actions that we feel are destructive for your life. Now, look and that that's the problem, that's the slippery slope. Because if you if you talk about. Your religious convictions these days, it's now hate speech in. That's that's that's not where it's at man. That's not where it's at. And we're going to get to a point just like the guy Britney other day who's now been arrested because he mis gendered someone when he referred to them. He didn't call them the right here. She NA arrested him. No. I haven't heard that miss gingered all the time. I really don't. That's your high aunts beautiful hair. Those laws. It's true. A male Dilling turns out pre enough preaching yeller, welcome. We'll let you go. Okay. We got a rep this thing. Mark. Hey, this is actually just a PSA. Marquee. You're gonna we're at fifty six minutes cigarette. This is a PSA for you guys. Start start really watching what you put on social media because insurance companies are now taking a look at what you're doing and they can hike up your rates. So like if you're driving and doing live, your he'd video or if you go on vacation, and you've everybody in the world knows that your home is unoccupied for burglars. Crude by. The security system. So, yeah, if you're on Bill, drinking smoking, you know. Nonsmokers? Lower my rates. How about that? I don't do. I don't drink. I don't smoke lower my rate about how about how about how about a. All the. Yeah. But, hey, if you're riding a motorcycle motorcycle without a helmet, you know, and they see you these insurance companies can utilize that because as a trauma nurse in Fort Worth. I saw many many many motorcycle accidents which overall most of them got Rex all by themselves. Nobody got in their way. Nobody cut them off. They just ran over rock or curb or whatever. But most of them also did not have insurance period. So was like most of jocked most of them most of the ones that come in and car accidents. They did not have health insurance. If there's a correlation. I don't know. But I would think twice about getting on a vehicle that has no protection around me. So here's the deal. If you choose to put your business on public forum, you serves every right that the people who let's face it the insurance companies while four out of every five dollars in America belongs to an insurance company. Let's face it. This is they're they're the ones who are going to be paying out the nose. If you if you have the problem or you have the accident, but the nose surf you check in got it if he check in at the golden chorale, and you're eating the Buffa, and you'd think big picture of you and ask me where I was getting to it. Where does your all that line? Like now, can we not get health insurance? Because I see you eaten fried chicken at Diane's and Fort Worth. Or you know, I mean, what's your eating six portions of versus, you know, can I not take pictures on my food anymore because that's not a heart healthy. I mean, there's there's it's just it gets. But if you're gonna put your stuff out there, you know, employers have been doing that for longtime determine whether or not they wanna hire somebody based on their. Social media. So I can tell you when I go out to Hollywood. And we talk with all these networks about sitcoms and shows and stuff like that. All of my writers are like, okay. So you're Twitter scrubbed, and I'm like. Twitter is one here. Let's go to chick fillet. I don't know. God bless them. Don't apologize people. That's the takeaway don't send. Your man to apologize. Also, another man Chick-fil-A Sessa. And if you put your chicken between him bones. Don't you jump between him bones? Don't get extra pickles. If Chick-fil-A messes up your order is because you ordered wrong ordered wrong. What you were supposed to Chick-fil-A in the wrong things in the bags because Chick-fil-A than you. What you want deigned need? Yes. The other day, I drove off and I never checked the bag because it's always right and sure enough what I ordered is not what I was last female. Do you? It wasn't in the bag actually. Yes. They messed up the tea. It was not sweet. Sweet tea, and I just had to choke it down because I knew that's what God. Day. It was four Dane. And I said I wonder who's going to play Jade in the movie for them to get that wrong. Yeah. Breads, by the way, we should do. I'm gonna talk to. So I encourage everybody to go. See the movie unplanned it comes out. It's already come out. I'm you're seeing this and watch this because I was at the movie premiere out Hollywood, the Chinese theatre Mann's Chinese theatre TLC theaters there on Hollywood Boulevard we had about three thousand people that showed up for that premier. Go. See the movie on planned? Several of my friends are in the movie, we've mentioned Mike Lindell mypillow dot com, he was a producer several other guys the folks that made God's not dead. The folks that made I can only imagine all produce maybe unplanned, did he say it's good maybe and just thinking about that. Talking about your own sweet. God ordaining. I remind everybody. I don't care who you are. I don't care what color yard on cave. You fat skinny man woman. What you persuasion is or anything else. God created you by design he or danger existence. You're here for a reason we love you. God bless you hot news, Natalie. Appreciate you. Jay, I prefer hot Jade Hutton. Well, that's just that's like a sandwich. Hot news. It has nothing to do with Natalie. Dave don't start apologizing. Start justifying things and you sound guilty. Accept your apology. Steve. Thank you. It is hot. Jade is hot. Somebody asked if we were related asked me that. I was like yes, we are. We don't need to know. Jay, I had a dude the other day who come in and on there. And he says I've never seen him interview. A man on here. Gosh is he still married? I'm like, that's a hell of a correlation. You just. Yeah. Somebody came on. There said he's interviewed just as many men of the as women, but we didn't make sure that the women look pretty good on the shoe. Ooh. I just birthed. Okay. I love y'all. God bless you with the next time back.

It was wired to the the Electrical power source that came into the VHS Blair so you didn't have to replace the batteries stories. You don't have to worry about any interference because it was going out over the air where it right on the telephone line On a wire right back to FBI headquarters and John Gotti body likes to talk. He lacks talk a lot and they heard a lot of stuff up there in the Internet charging a whole lot of people Off that one little hidden hidden microphone. And specifically the murder of Paul Castellano was included in those indictments and after nine minutes came down they got got in and Sammy. Sammy the bull and guy named Frank Cossio and several others rico charges and murder and racketeering extortion. All the the usual suspects the parade. Eight of horrible for for the defendants They had a bond hearing December the Fourteenth Nineteen Ninety and the FBI agents is played tapes and that bond hearing trying to show that these guys could be a flight risk and what horrible criminals. They weren't how dangerous they were and how they may go out there and try to intimidate witnesses S.'s or kill witnesses even and and won the tapes they played was John Gotti talking to another underlying I think in I'm probably a little Cossio. He was one of his confidants at the time about Sammy. The Bull. who wasn't there now? You know we all at work will be bad mountain. The boss us when the boss there are Batman somebody else in the unit or the division or or where we work in our office when they're not. There's always somebody that that's going to be on the wrong end of that office. Gossiping in this case it was you know Sammy the bull. Because he wasn't there you know If if you take part in that stuff and you ban mouth people aren't there. I'm GonNa tell them folks when you aren't there. Somebody's bad mountain. You and making fun of you. So that's that's gotta the human nature. I I try not to participate in that too much it just. I don't like putting somebody down at at their expense in trying to make myself feel better. But that's my my little editorial comment for the day Gary's wisdom how I live my life. But here's what he said about him. He said things like you know. He thinks he's building a fucking army within an army. He's got all that adhered giving me anything and complaining about Sammy the bull and and Sammy. The bull head was smart. Godley Godley was more of a street guy who was a real charismatic leader. Men wanted to follow him but he was more of a straight guy and he was. He was sick degenerate gambler and and he was constantly gambling and losing money. Honey Lot and in the bull he figured out under Castellano the in needed getting Bob with business in Sammy. The bull time had gotten a concrete concrete company they said and in the island of Manhattan which we know is the most expensive place in the world. Live Sammy you if you wanted to buy concrete to build L. to building even if you're donald trump back then you had to buy through Sammy the Bull Girvan and so he was making a lot of money and and Gotti was was jealous and and of course he wanted more and more and more because he always needed more money After plan that you know bravado they said you know what I read they. He said he gave him heart stairs and said something about. You didn't have to do that. And they say that that's that's the reason that he turned but I. Oh I think it's more than that. And we'll talk to Steve about that because he knew some other people in the in the penitentiary About that that's how we got to where we were. And and so when Sammy the bull turn he gave up. This William Peace to was a New York City police detective than I talked about before. And he he. He had been given information the guy long and burned while the first one. He burnt some bugs that were in San Mateo. Bogu semi the bowls club and his construction company office and he burned other people and they just couldn't figure out who it was. If you remember they had foreclosed and they they where he was maybe a cop. He was maybe Golfer he was maybe a cousin of somebody's and he was. Maybe a lawyer in from that that. FBI and it was really a dog dog FBI agent Figured out who it was and we talked about that last time Steve. You've heard about what what I learned Komo from public sources. Why Sammy the ball turned because Gotti was bad mounteney minus back but I have a little bit of hard time leaving him? He was just because he was bitching about him behind. chinese-backed that's not that unusual activity among guys like this is it. Oh you always have somebody talking about you. I mean that's common you leave room. Leave the room and they start talking about you. People say that when they went to jail that day you know that Gotti told Sam the bowl he said. Listen you're going to take the heat on this. You'RE GONNA take it all because I really need to get back out there. People need me but they don't really need did you. So you need to take that heat and and you'll be okay and he couldn't believe it when he told him that he said you know In this business he he said we get rich together and we go to jail together. He said both he said we. Just don't get rich and then dump the case on somebody else and they claim that's what he he did Whether it be or not I don't know but they say that's what made him flip. I believe it because you know if if God he told him that and then he he didn't do it you know what's his life going to be worth nothing nothing nothing then and guiding was more of a dynamic leader at the time I'm although You were in joint with them. Some mother mob bosses that that worked real crazy about God. Is that true. That's exactly right so you were an what apple you said you ran with Tony Ducks Corallo and Was the other guy. Tony Salerno. Tony Salerno who were Bob bosses than the five families in Manhattan so they appears of podcast. Llano who I know they didn't. They never ever approved of Gotti hidden costs Lonzo so he could get elevated to boss a did that without the commission's always without permission is my understanding. I'm not I don't know if that's for sure but what you were in joint of these guys you'll ever hear him talk about a Guy Yeah. They weren't happy there. They were the old school guys. You know Fat Ed Tony. He just shakes his head because he knew that the you know he was just out there too much and flashy clothes and just kind of thumbing his is knows at the FBI. Everybody knows that sooner or later. FBI is GonNa get you because they got too much money and then Tony Ducks was a nice guy. I used to have coffee with him. He was a really good guy too and he same thing just you know they did like that new stuff. You know flashing election this inflation. That and Domino's Adam you know and that's what happened. Yeah I mean even got the nickname other news teflon don on. I mean this goes back to like the gangsters did in in the thirty like Al Capone did in the thirties and and you know that they had a lot of covering the court systems in FBI and nobody was very sophisticated. FBI didn't pay attention to the mob back then but they do now and they do not like you thumb your nose in their face do they. Oh okay got all the money as we used to say and the police department. We've got the biggest street gang in the world when we were dealing with street gangs here in the city. They talk about their bad thirty first street dogs and say well. We're we're like the sixty third street pig dogs because our station was on sixty the third street and we got a bigger gang batter gang than you do. These kids guy but law enforcement has the biggest gang in the world biggest the organization in the world. And you just can't i. I used to stay by us to workdays cases you know where it was on you or whatever I remember thinking like you know if this guy only knew that the weight of the federal government and how much money and time and effort they'll spend to do make you quit doing what you're doing and the only way you know at that point in in persons live the only way you're gonNA quit is if somebody forces you to quit and there's the only one way to force you to quit it and that's the step on your toes so hard that it hurts more to to try to continue doing then then stop and and and that's you know that's kind of the not so much to put somebody in jail. There's two to four somebody to quit doing what they're doing and You know just sometimes you have no idea you know the famous statement is. They can't do that. They can't shake their head. Can't do that could tell you. Stories that that like you said like I told you one time they gotta find the dinosaurs and they put him in jail. They can't do that and then anything they want. Oh yeah that's right. Tell me that story again. Then we're GONNA talk about how Girvan Dino was turned that day then we'll go back to you more about William Peace but teller listeners wire-tappers after that story about that that dude that got. How many years did he get like seventy only got? You mean dinosaur. Yeah you got ninety days. He's got a really. Yeah but what's what's the deal with finding a dinosaur. They they wanted to make him a felon and they did. He was an anthropologist. Yeah and I I seen him one day and I was getting close to getting ready to go home in ninety nine and I was talking to him having some coffee and I said well how long you've got he said. How long have you got left? He so I got ninety days in ninety days. You kidding me so what you do. Yeah well I've found a dinosaur found a dinosaur and you know you meet so many people that are full of it you know. I'm thinking this guy's got some some kind of story but I said what are you talking about. Well in South Dakota he owned museum and his girlfriend was out digging. She was anthropologists allergists as well and She called him up and she said I found something significant. You need to get out here. So he got in his car and I guess he drove out the mountains where they were digging and sure enough. She found a significant fine that The more they dug up the more they found and it ended up being a t rex dinosaur and they put it together at a cost of about two hundred and fifty thousand back in US museum and when they got the last has bone put together the FBI. Come in and said hey thanks a lot for putting our dinosaur together and he said what was on government land. It was so well we give an Indian five thousand dollars long story short they said No. It's government land so they confiscated it and And they ended up selling it for twelve million dollars. McDonald's bought it donated it to Chicago Museum history and they named named sue which was after the girl founded T.. REX named soon his name was Roger Law Larsen and you can google at anytime. You don't pop up quick nick and it's and he still shaking his head. What if they can't do that they can't do can't do that? Guy Gone Down because they can't do that and You know and he said he was going to soon so he went out of the country and came back with more money than he was supposed to say. They arrested him and give ninety days. It make him a felon. I can't even go out of the country now. What L. Man they can do anything you want a really who will I guess like? You said they can't do that. Oh yes they can so anyhow. That's a was one of the many many prison stories we're gonNA hear from. Steve is over the next few weeks. We'll keep getting together every once in a while and tell them some prison stories. You up for that Steve. I'm up on got some to anywhere in jail. House Nachos could tell us out of make them anyhow. Yeah let's go back to SAM. How did Sammy the bull come in? How did this happen? I mean you always read about it and people get all mad. Because he's a rat a snitch and everybody loves John Gotti. I'm I'm not real clear about that. he rewards there but From what you said Steve. I don't think he really had a choice. He had no choice is either I. I mean it was either him or guy that's like Franco out in Las Vegas. He was either Hammerton. donuts block throw what it came down to because this block was told. You need to clean up your mess out there in Las Vegas and and Culotte was part of the mess that that had got into after these guys got caught on the inside added that burglary And and somebody was GONNA start talking out of that and and so he came in and anger Bano. I think he was. He was part part of the mess that that God had created and he was going to have to clean that up so eric to me they didn't have a choice Just might as well kill yourself now. But in in the fall of Nineteen ninety-one as Gotti's trial grew closer. There's some woman called the FBI office. It was handling the case and the agent. John Recognized Your Voice. I don't think he's ever said nobody's ever said who it was. But obviously one of the given Relatives confidants probably probably a blood relative. Don't you imagine imagine. Probably and Colas case agent that Sammy the ball. I want to meet privately with the agent. So and here's how they do this. I don't know if this ever happened to you. If you so this diva name stories about this let me know. But he's digging out of his cell at the Metropolitan Correction Center in Manhattan. which is the federal a place that they kept people there for you know going back and forth to trial hearings and all Latin? I guess if they had a gossipy only got a ninety day sentence they send you to full-fledged it's penitentiary also Jail they keep you in like if you're in the county and the state you just go the county jail for ninety days But anyhow they pulled Mommy's sell for a handwriting exemplar. So there's a good reason the pulling out kind of a cover but afterwards instead of taking him right back to his cell he was taken into a jury jury room because the courthouse was like attached to this somehow N- took him to this empty jury room and there's an FBI agent and the US Attorney. Guy Named Bruce Mau Imo. Oh you W who was prosecuting Gotti in this case and there was going to be got he's last case and and I talked Damon and said you know he said I got a lot to tell you guys and and when the agency was there would later say that he he said this he's like like Johnny Cochran here. You get a little rhyme says I talk. I walk Kinda teaser. He described the exact scene. And how it went down when Mall Cast Alana was killed and that was kind of like the holy grail to solve the murder of a mob boss New York City that that would be one of the the. US Attorney could could stick and hit a feather sticking his capital today. Now solve the murderer mob boss. That would be a huge a few days later. They you know they journeyed and sent him back to his cell phone got together with probably had to go all the way up to the Attorney General's himself and you know who was who was in charge of of this under the attorney. General was by Moore. Who Famous Bob? Mueller Mueller Muller Muller Muller Muller Botton famous Bob Laura he was over the criminal division of the entire. US Attorney's office and so he had been involved in this decision He can't take down drumbeat. Nobody cares sure. Took Down John Gotti in the end or his people in a few days later these guys the agent in Bruce Mile came back and and said you know. Here's what you gotta do. You gotTA testify in a variety of different trials at least for the next couple of years but you also have to take a conviction that that had an as a maximum sentence of twenty years as I mean. This guy seemed like Sammy the bull. How many murders did he ever read that? Stay saying nineteen nineteen eighteen murders. I mean this guy was he was a killing machine. He was killing once he kind of became the under boss especially he went and I'm not going going down through all the names. But he he cleaned up some old business and took care of some graduates because he could then he was a cold dude man and and But he'd have to take this conviction for at least twenty years and and when they say a maximum twenty years he'd never served twenty years. I think he served. Maybe you remember. Stay five he served five years In some kind of a snitch. Prison somewhere BRAHMANIC. There's one out in San Diego. Yeah but would you know. I read this ironic that You know first of all being a snitch or rat I I absolutely don't approve over that. That's a personal opinion. Whatever he chose and why Joe's it is his business? I guess but to me you know. Oh that's the you know if you if you do the crime like they say you gotTa do the time. And that's the way it's supposed to be but I read where they went. They went in the middle of the night to pick up. Sammy the bowl and the guard told them all your year to pick up the man and they said yeah and they went and got got involved Godley out there they in God he said what what is. What's this shit? And so he knew then that they came. Let me get GROVONNI. He said that eight to one so they he knew then. The GARONA was rolling on him at that moment. That's exactly what I heard too. That's exactly had happened. They said they were taking Gotti back. And he must have looked out the papers and said Oh it's for in he knew he knew. And there's supposedly taking him out to another prison that normally they would take them to if you want to transfer somebody upstate New York but you you know you're waiting for trial you're not gonNA take somebody out. Yeah exactly A man and they said bravado can hear Gotti Yellen oh I bet and rabbit. They said that he just wanted the agents. That was there said you know he just was stoic on the way out and he looked up at this age and he said is interesting little tidbit from this. FBI and he said you know he said where are you from in his agents in the middle like FBI from all over the United States. And you know here. We are in New York. City San Zimmer Gavino is probably never been out of New York City except to go to Atlantic city or maybe down to Ford or something and especially to Iowa and the agent says I'm from Iowa and you know New York New York people think us from the Midwest Missouri or Iowa. Think we're all a bunch of rubes hillbillies Hicks but they also think that there were probably pretty honest It's not the same as those cops and law enforcement people back east. It's been my experience. And he said well he said I'm going to start trusting somebody. I might as will be somebody from Iowa so I thought interesting little tidbit so they take him do. FBI Office and they ended up taking him to a motel and they start art. Hide needs for him. I got taking his family and hide them too. Because this is I mean. This is huge extreme extreme security precautions and there was a lot of potential santeuil breaches during the next few weeks God He's had figured this out but one of the early questions that this. US Attorney had had Bruce Mau was what's who is this detective that's men snitching too Gaudy. He's because he knows from that wire that that that was one of the first things that the guy told Godley was that there were bugs inside of Granados office and his At his club and the office at his business and so he knows that he knows. And so he tells the story that you know Yeah The guy's name was William piece which they knew by this by this point in time they knew they knew who it was but they just didn't have enough to to make him on unless he confessed. Yes there was no all case money. They just gave him cash and they say you got a lot of money. You had accessed this information but if nobody talks on the other who got this information eight you know. He's going to walk on it but he said Yeah I said God. He paid him five hundred dollars a week. said he paid him as much as ten thousand dollars became up with a really good tip trump and he named Joe Butch Guerrero. This George Helbig and beat Mavis is all embalmed. The situation if he remembered when the agent he he ran is down and and he figured out that that Joe Butch and Caroline George hibing were the first ones that were talking to Godley about out who this snitch was and what he could tell them and then he ran down the cousin. Pete Mavis and then from Pete neighbors. They ran down William Peace Nineteen ninety-three February William Pease who had retired by this point in time you know A. A St will tell you a little more about What what he said was why he he did? This is But he got seven and a half years for selling confidential information formation to William pieced and and so You were what did you first meet former detective pieced. And what did you think that you know he was was a cop or yanked in South Dakota what's the name of the The facility up there it's out. FCC Esi Yanked Mount Marty College and then they turned it into prison. Oh so is it more like a is it lower security lower security because I went from a higher security he and I put in to go to lower of security because I wanted to become a baker and go to college and that's the only place they had that program really so you're able to get transferred. Yeah they're Kinda cold up there in the winter like thirty really so anyhow you you get up there and so they put Mr Peace in that in yanked yes I wonder why he was lower security. I guess he was a low secure. You wouldn't put a guy like that you know in a high-security no reason he was put up nerves because supposedly and I beg to differ on this but on paper yanked in. South Dakota is a medical center to yeah and it's really not there's no different than a regular place but they sent him there because of his lake he only had one leg right. He had that leg. If Your Mirror folks I talked about this he got hurt in a car wreck got a one point four million dollar settlement from the lawsuit and was still Raton out the New York Police Department but to Got Him but ah leg was taken off at three operations was taken off almost up to his hip knee these. That's what I read. So that's why it was after I'm sorry. I interrupted Steve. Go ahead and all. That's fine that's you what you met him in bakery. Well he wasn't you know he came to me one day and because I was ahead Baker which means I had three other bakers at work below me. And you know we'd put to the three meals out that day and then we'd be off two days so it was a sought after position and he came to me one day he said you know. My Name's bill piece. Do you know and and he says I I. I don't have anything to do. They got this lady got me on medical. He said is Ernie way that you can get me over in the baker bakery. I agree and he said I'll teach some tricks. Trust me I so how you going to teach me any tricks east of allies to Bake Waldorf Astoria really well. You can't get any better the credentials the net. Yeah so I went to the cops in in the bakery. Amin in the John I said. Listen I got a guy that's related to me and because you had always lie to get something done and I said you know he used to work at the Waldorf Astoria no good nuts in jail. I get him over a few hours during the day and he can teach me how to make some stuff. Oh yeah yeah no problem. All sign sign up you know so. He signed him off mobile there every every day or other days in our work and so he came over there and he did. He taught me some techniques that I would never learn because they they don't teach you all the fancy stuff and the joint but he He knew every trick in the book and he was a really Nice Guy he knew his business. He I mean he could make a cake for five foot tall with no problem. And that's just what you could tell that he. He was professional bakers so now How'd you start learning about his background? I guess by then because in the penitentiary. You don't bring somebody in close to do something for them unless you know a lot about them because you don't want to I'm snitching and close to because I'm sure Steve that you were pretty square during your time in the joint but you still gotta do certain things to survive and to have few extras and and and so you don't WanNa bring somebody in. That's just looking to. Yeah get some some off. All the all naked told all US stealing out of the kitchen. Yeah that ain't no big deal. But no he. He came to me one day and he said you know you saw. I need to talk to you. I said Okay and he said don't want personalized. I said okay so we went out and the Challah got some coffee and sat down. He said now when I tell you this he said you can do whatever you want he he said I think we we became friends. And and and you know he's but I'm just going to tell you the truth he said a New Yorker magazine just came out and it's got me on the front cover. I said Okay and I said what's the problem is. Did you tell anybody because if you toll on some money then that's a a problem you just have to go down the road. He said No. I'm a cop I see your car. You a cop now he said no no no. I wasn't copies and Tom. I retired and anyone on told me the story about him being in Iraq and in he was actually off duty but he had a squad car and he got hit on one of the bridges in in New York and he lost Lake. Well he kind of expected to the Police Department Department to let him retire with full pension with no taxes and he was going to sue them. You get me a few million dollars each sued for eight million and and he said you know he said they would let me retire so he says the all night I could do is they. Put Me on news squad the Organized Crime Squad and he said they put me on this to protect this jury and he said I was just very very unhappy with the police department so he said my cousin knew some mob guys and so he came to me and ask me. Hey we need a name any name and that's started so he worked up to do that. You know because he he he was like doing stuff all along is what I read. No thing there is actually I read that New Yorker article is pretty comprehensive article and Dan. he was I didn't really it didn't say was any squad car now folks if he wanted a duty related pension which Steve said it's a tax free. which if you had your duty disabled an a duty related situation or accident or you know no intention all your your shot or something when you retire? They'll give you eighty percent leased in Kansas City is probably might even give one hundred percent of your pay. The the last has paid last year. You were on and it'll be tax free. They don't tax that is like if you get a settlement on a personal injury case that's not the tax attack that's all tax free anything that's for Injury is tax free from the feds so that was huge to to get a duty disabled attention and not only would be higher pension but it also be tax-free which adds another twenty five percent on to your money and I guess he was mad that they wouldn't do that and I didn't really realize is in a squad car if if he's in a squad car was off duty taking his wife mom to Thank would it would have been a little easier for the pension. Board to grant made nudie related disability And Steve is asking me about that. And I've been on the pension board here in Kansas City and pension boards Sort of you know taking money out and giving it to yourself you can do a lot of stuff. I mean if you if the board is a whole votes to give somebody a duty related aided pension just because I've seen it done here in Kansas City just because you want to because you think the guy was kind of a hero and even though oh he wouldn't on duty duty duty related particularly. I remember a guy that broke up a fight in a bar and got shot in the face with a shotgun and blinded name and they gave him a duty related disability but yet you know he was out in the bar drinking and part of this whole crowd and and so But you can do that kind of thing is like the That's why the mobsters. That's why they WANNA kill Jimmy Hoffa at that point in time they had control the central states pension teamsters pension and fund and the pension plan can do whatever they vote to do And if they squandered the money to make bad investments. That's you know just you know. Well we made a main. It made a mistake and and so They could have done that but they didn't. I guess I can see why was mad. Emmy's in a police car had a little more of a leg to stand on so anyhow he's he's baking with you got a bakery story You may have. Is that the same place where you made that special treat for everybody buddy. Over holiday were the pastries no that was a higher level and I was a pretty good when he. He made everybody in that prison. Happy Happy for one day as he folks. When you've got a good cook in a institution like that you got a good cook? It keeps everybody happier happier gear and calmer and less likely to fight. If you've got a crappy cook and crappy food then you got a little more trouble. Would you agree with it. Hit the fan. Yeah Yeah So. A cook is I used to have a guy Over a treatment center in Patient Treatment Center and he had a cook and the guy got a Dui and he's looking at jail time and and my friend got hold on Mason. You know he said we don't have any money at all and he said I'll give you a little money but I sure would like to keep him out of jail because when he's there at the treatment center cooking everything goes so much better after three or four Burns's in court and much plating on my part because he was a a multi repeat offender and it came to drinking and driving. We kept him out of jail and he went back to cooking down at the treatment center. So it's a it's a pretty important job in in any institution. Whatever kind of institute school? He's a a tip on the green puffs. Okay tell them about the cream puffs of yeah I was in a FC seek and they just opened it up So a Lotta guys was there. That was unhappy. It was thirty below. It yanked him but it was about forty below or fifty below. It was Zeke Minnesota so that was worse yet and they didn't have much there they had no recreation and nothing 'cause they just opened up so I'm the one that opened a bakery great when they shipped me out of the Yang I don't know what for but it was in the middle of the night go. That's another story stories. We'll do that. Sorry folks but anyway pastry cream puffs they were really unhappy so I told that the The guard hard in the kitchen. I said listen. If you let me do what I WANNA do everybody will be happy. Trust me and He and I told them. I said I WANNA make cream puffs for everybody cream puffs he said are you crazy. We got five hundred people here. It was a small amount and I. Yeah well I said that's okay. I said that I said you. You hold the head and I said you know let let me blankety blank this horseshoe. Just hold Ed and you see. Can you really do it. I said well yeah. Oh on cream puffs. If anybody's out there that's knows bacon. ALZA takes US flour and water. And that's it to make the Shell and the cream you know you can make a whip cream or you can make the Bavarian agreement. I choose of very in Queen by the way and so I made about seven hundred fifty of these cream cream puffs and then we get them. We cut them in half. I one guy got them in half with the chain on the blade so you couldn't take your room with you stand there and cut them in half and then I'd have another guy fill 'em wants an ice cream you know so we'd film with Ice Cream. Put the top back on. Put them in the freezer. So one of the guys is come to the line. And was there on plate sitting there and I had hot hot chocolate hot fudge chocolate. They come to the line. I'd put that fudge on there Erin. Handed to them and they went through the line faster than they would. Normally it was really nothing to it. Is You knew how to do it. Warden come by. And he says say John Villain three or four. I said well you know what we got to keep everybody happy you know. Just just the supplies coming. That's all I want. So yeah it's they they can make you make things a lot easier on people really all right. That's a great one. That's a good one okay. When one more we're going to get out of here but You you were also one on one of the other people that were involved in kind of the setup of how connected piece how they connected him with A. You've got a guy named Joseph Vincent Joe Butch Crayola was it. I pronounced that correctly grail. And you were in that one of your facilities you were in with Joe. Butch is at Rochester Minnesota which is colder than why seek us so they kept sending me somewhere cold old just all across the nation. Top of the United States Yanked in South Dakota. Yeah Wisconsin in Wisconsin and Minnesota showed. Uh Oh my God so it how well at least you had the Mayo Clinic up there. If you got seven having mayoclinic go ahead with what was your interactions actions with With this dude well you know you just don't like everybody knows you don't go to a joint and and And just bust in the crowd and say hey here I am you know. Let's say yeah. It doesn't work that way. But fortunately this was my seventh-place ace okay. So you're a veteran. A veteran and I knew a lot of people a lot of guys from New York that was down in Springfield fat. Tony I was with lefty jarrow. Which I made the Donnie BRASCO? Yeah about Oh that's right you're gonNA talk about and He was there so I knew a lot of guys that knew a lot of guys but when I entered Rochester. Usually if somebody knows you they'll meet you and and get your stuff you need and whatnot and I had a very very dear friend of mine than I knew. Way before I came in named Frank Gag Liano from New Orleans. He was a gentleman's gentleman. He was a great guy and I was friends with his son. Matter of fact today that that they rated me. And I'm not GONNA point anything. They my guys rated yeah and My Boys Franken Jack Gag Liana which were dear friend of mine. I just taken him to the airport. They had been at my house for about a week up above the Deli so I took him to the airport and in F. B. I.. In the squad was was kind enough to wait till I came back and then Yeah so anyway to break down your door that's right. I did that because that was a hard door to break down. That's why it was such a long way. So Mr Frank I had. I had sent word down there. I said they're trying to get you. You know he said I am not doing anything so well whatever I said. That's all they want to talk about because they interviewed you all the questions about. Oh Yeah Oh yeah I'd after that that's all we wanNA talk about US will i. They make a good move a lot. And that's all I know and so Mr Frank since that time I guess they arrested him in four or five guys from New York for five thousand poker machines. Louisiana's at video poker deal with Saint Saint against the boy for awhile. All these guys are into video poker and making some money out of it but so he was there waiting for me and he said You told me I said I sure did so. Oh you know. He introduced me around and there was a couple of friends of mine it was from Kansas City. And so you know. Don't take long to know people so I'm walking the track one one day and I'm walking the track with this Joe Butch Corral. We became friends. And so we're walking track and this guy's about six foot eight six foot nine so for every step he takes to buy like a slow jog and he's walking and so we're we're walking walking and talking you know. What are you going to talk about? You know it's nice outside today. Finance looks a little bit taller so you know I broke the silence today. Joe And this. I've been after I met him. I knew him for about a month or so I said did you knew a guy named William Peace knowing. He stopped dead in his tracks. Eternit me says. Where'd you get that name from us? We'll I know how do you know any I'm looking at him. I said well I was in yanked his South Dakota with them. Yeah I know aw I said he was a cop right and he should.

And if you ever read anything about Bill Beast. They'll say Aka Baker because he used to making the warfare orphan story and prior to that he was a guard at rikers island. And he had told me all this. So Joe Butcha wow man it's a small small world. He said yeah he was all my case and then he explained to me that Yali says you know. He said he retired and he was. We been retired for several years and we thought everything was fine and all the sudden. Sammy the bull flip. Don't everybody and they went and arrested. The detective is come on. You're going to jail so you know it was a it was a small world small world and I think can't sit. He's a small world but I've been in that Federal Federal Penitentiary System.

You're not going to give any secrets he was he was like I said he was a gentleman. WHO's all? Yeah he was a really nice guy and the only problem with him is his diabetes real bad and if you touch him like grabbed him by the wrist he just turned black and blue. Oh really yeah. And and he started a painting up there and he became a prolific painter. Because he didn't know he had the skills so he used to go paint every day. What what did he do? Do you do like landscape. You're like somebody's face or you do. He faces aces of you. Know like New York skyline but he was is good You you looked at it and go. Wow who did this. and He'd send them back he had a couple of Talian restaurants on Mulberry Street and he used to to send them there and they'd put them in the window and stuff.

Let's make your jewelry box. So he made my daughter jewelry box would with copper and it was beautiful full and he had her name on there so I sent that home when it was just a really really nice guy. But he was a tough guy you know he was in the seventies he's and he was having problems in his unit him and a couple of his buddies had some young guy out there. You know young guys are GONNA try motorcycle. Recycle Gang Motorcycle Guy and I told Joel I said Joe.

Yeah there he's a captain and he's in charge of security and stuff and I said you know that guy don't like anyway I said you gotta be really be careful and the next morning. One of his friends come out and said well Joe's was gone. I said gone when you mean Di di he said no he said but they He got into it with that motorcycle guy and he cracked up with the chair. Because you know all those old timers they don't they don't play they're not gonNA take any anything off anybody and so they shipped him in the middle of the night. Put Him in Lear jet and send them to Springfield and and I had told them I said well. You don't WanNa go to Springfield Giga down. There hey you know you're not gonna get near the care that you do it Mayoclinic obviously absolutely yeah you you mentioned that to me. We always thought I always thought Springfield was like the you know the good place for all they close at Florida for Staph Evan faction for many years ago well you had to go downtown to Saint John Memorial or Cox Memorial which. I've been to both so you had another interaction with you. Renew York at this Cigar Store Yeah Joe. Butch owned a cigar guards threw. It looks to me like it might be at one forty one Mowbray Street. Probably the Be called the three Lillian this cigar bar. I'm not sure it's down on mulberry. Anyhow focused down Mowbray Street now. We're not sure if it's still there that it was about what what we figure about. Five years ago four years ago it was in two thousand fifteen and and so you knew that that had been his. Now he's he's deceased see snow diabetes or someone is still in the joint either died in the joyner who died shortly. They let him out. And I know I know Left who died after he was out here because I used to call them at his house about once a week. He wanted me to call his house and talk to him and I did So he lasted a body year but he was real bad smoker. I can today you know. That's a that's a part that was Al Pacino. Play him in Donnie BRASCO. The movie. Yeah thank you thought. So anyhow. You're you're in Manhattan.

I went in there one day. And I. We're up there in New York me and my family and and I said you know what I'm going to go into cigar store and see if Jill's son is there and and It was during the day and it was an open. And I'm thinking man you'd think of business with reopened while he was that night. Six o'clock tonight really So I call them at night and went in there and I explained to myself. I explained to him who I was and told him some things that he had. We would probably know no that only somebody neum would know and after I told him that. He Oh manny hug me and that was my dad.

FOF #2725 Tom Goss Thinks Outside the Hot Box

"Yeah. For LGBT folks who spent a good part of their lives hiding their gender or sexual identity can seem like one of those while boxing videos from YouTube not to show the world really today. Visit Tom for years. Film and music. Joins it. You work. Directed by the domain Gebro. The video presented the idea that we literally put ourselves a little box often child by limited disruptions other. Tom talked about the mainstreaming of musicians on American idol and rupaul drag rakes singing Facebook live on Friday mornings with Devon green. And the worst of. Gary spice Mel b reveal. She had a sexual credit with Dallas Spice Girl. Jerry hall. Jinju? Bye. Bye. The big boys and not wealth them our eleven. One million dollars. Tender introduces high nerve occasion on the other measurement verifications soon. Follow I'm out. And as as pieced of fun. Hi, Tom GAAS time gas who's this, Tom? I thought we were talking to Steve grand today. Yeah. Full. Just can't. Congratulations on the new song and the new music video wake alive. Thank you. This new video it's not actually new Sar desire has been released for very long time. And I sat that video years ago and just could never figure out how to finish it. And then I did wait a minute. So this is something vault. That's something from the vaults. I really that's my twenty sixteen record. But doesn't break I shot that video February of twenty seventeen. I bet where are you right now, Los Angeles. No. I mean, you sounds like you're like playground somewhere. No. I'm just outside sitting outside this cafe, oh, I can hear the birds chirping and the background nice. Just as good just be careful of the wind until those kids to shut up who am I telling to shut up the kids? I hear children playing in the background see any kits. Okay. Just came by. So we play a little bit of wake alive for the listeners. Okay. Here it goes. Sorry. That's the wrong track. That's Jackie Hoffman. Singing Mima live. Let's play a little wake alive. Trouble on Goss. Goss strike thing. Now too. And always just Todd shadow. You're. It to you live. It's all you see. Thank you. Good to me. Honey, you are really thinking outside the box and this box. Absolutely. So for people who want to catch the video, it's on our website dot com. And of course, unusual, Tom Goss music. This video is directed by your friends Scott Brooks from Baltimore where you and your friends are trapped inside these cardboard box heads in a box, just blockheads and Gumby, just like the movie Kevin people's backers and seven remember that. Oh, I don't want to give spoiler alert. It was somebody died. Really horribly. Okay. I've stir really a great friend of mine. I missed a lot. He he we live together in DC, and he did make believe me and hand collaborated on the maple leaf record. He was the painter and make believe and so we were just he was coming onto LA for a show. We started talking about the ten show. Ideas for a new music video, and I really was playing projection at the time. And so we really wanted to do something with production. And this kind of what we what we came up with the super super fun. This approach to sort of putting someone's face over a cardboard box is very puppetry. Reminds me of the seventies and eighties puppet superstars Moomins shots. You guys might remember from the muppet show. They had they would usually perform. I think there were French they would perform with these mass men out of clay or or post it notes, and they would remove the notes and the expressions would change that's so clever. I have no idea what you're talking about. Well, the reason I bring up movement shots is because your video certainly like reminds me a lot of their great work, and it takes to a new level. Yes. It's really interesting. You know, what I really wanted to do is like projection mapping, which is really complicated. And but super entrance. Just remember this right out. So try what why did you do is projection mapping on the body itself? But it's three D project. So you can make it look like something was crawling up the body. So that's what Scott, and I were really talking about. But it's too complicated. Right. And so I went to get and then I found this company that like would take pictures of you. So you could have a three d rendering? So you could do the projection mapping, okay? So what you call them. And I emailed him like how much is it? Oh, it's like, you know, and it was like supervision price like came out to like he kept saying like, oh, it's like fifteen seven for this. Cool. I talked him like fifteen times about and then I got there. We did the whole process of the picture taking which was really. Ornate house like man, this is really the doing a lot of work. And then he sent me a Bill. So he was like fifteen in seven was like, I don't know twenty two. And then he's at me a Bill for twenty two hundred dollars. And I was like so he meant fifteen hundred fifteen hundred fifteen dollars key never said hundreds at the end of his saying. Yeah. And I thought it was cheap, but they had stuff on their site like like map stuff that was like thirty bucks or twenty bucks. So I was like, you know, but it was he have really mad at me. And I was like, dude, just stop, you workout. I'm not paying just don't don't do anymore. You know, it was like he'd never said hundred ever. But maybe a an estimate in pepper or an Email talked on the phone like it's fifteen for this at six for this. It's whatever it was. I don't remember the exact numbers, and in your mind, you're thinking hundreds thousands. I was thinking neither hundreds or thousands of dollars. Thousand dollars. Yeah. Not fifteen hundred dollars a fifteen thousand dollars fifteen million dollars. That drives me crazy when real estate agents do that like they're like, well this house is one fifty and I was like, oh, wow. That's really cheap one hundred and fifty dollars now Honey a hundred and fifty million. Well, how am I supposed to know what the scale of zeros? Are you talking about here? Yeah. That's important information. He was trying to do Pugh was their reason that you decided to release wake alive in the spring right now or is just a project. I was sort of being developed and it just came to fruition. So yes, I shot that years ago, and we had this whole this whole concept of what it would do and how would look in. How would evolve we had a camera go down when we were shooting? So we lost some footage in felt like the story was that the arc wasn't what we intended shoot. So we went to we started editing, and I don't need to go into the the whole labor process of it. But it, but it just was never quite looking. Right. So I just kept going back to going back to kept cutting it differently and kept and just kept like coming at it with different ideas. And then finally it ended up where it is now which I'm really happy. It got the spice 'cause I think it looks really fun at dynamic, vibrant. And it's really different than anything that I've ever done. And so yeah, it seemed like a really big funny fun like vibrant, fast paced on. I thought springtime was wasn't wonderful time. When I really like about your music videos is that they follow this eighties style of people are struggling in the video and the music, let them cut loose and at the end, they're all happy and free. Get out of that box. It must have been terrible afterwards to have to clean up. All that confetti. I don't remember it actually being that hard. Do you might doing this? I gotta go to another video shoot. Shatt rounded, all the right places. Guys were like a scarf the head glitter on it. And I've fucking tell you what I had to clean that studio for over an hour just going over and over and over for the glitter over vacuuming sweeping. I work events. Sometimes like some of the places I worked at they have like things contractors. No confetti if you if you use confetti, it's a two hundred and fifty dollars charge, which was the same for this guy. He's like this is the only rule like no glitter. And I didn't even think it was clear, and I'm not even kidding was a scarf so small how every single piece of glitter all over the studio. I have no idea to suck. You know? It's funny that we sort of take glitter events and shows and performances that ubiquitous right? We started watching this documentary on studio fifty four on net flicks. And basically it's a documentary on the first corrupt. Gay bar here city, and I guess just the guys are really like sleazy are fucked up shit, and you know, there were like in with their money, and, you know, created a very popular very opulent bar that celebrities straight people gay people all felt comfortable in and the things that they sort of according to the documentary pioneered was throwing confetti over the dancers on the dance floor, and I guess for people that was such a novelty at the time, but all the cleaning crew the next day. They're like. In clean up this cut as all over the place. I used to clean up a baseball stadium. When I was a kid like I was like thirteen and we had a minor league team and Kenosha. And so I would go like after every game the next morning how people eat the peanuts Sunfire season spit them out. Me like sweeping and cleaning. Everybody's like spit peanuts and sunflower seeds and candy wrappers and popcorn. It was like I would clean the entire stance by myself. It's interesting you dedicating your life to creating music, videos and songs urging people to break out of their box to live free to be there cells considering you know, for you like that's also been something you've been trying to grow as a person throughout your life. As a Catholic priest who was a wrestler, and then you became a musician. Do you feel like in some ways that your songs? Also, speaking to yourself in a in the past. I think it's myself in the president. I don't think that I don't think that I have accomplished anything growth. You know, what I mean like, I know that I'm grown. But that doesn't mean that I have like it's not like, you reach a pinnacle, and you sit there, you know. And so I really love the the words in the message in the song week. Alive. And I'm probably wrote it because I honestly wrote that for weight. So I probably wrote that song twenty thirteen I was just writing crazy for way in a bunch of the tracks on what doesn't break my twenty sixteen release were throwaways from that record because they didn't fit the vibe of that record in. So I feel like at the time listening to think about it. I was doing the artist's way. I'm not sure if you've ever done the artist's way, but. Yeah. So it's like pretty like every day, June the artist's way was really into it. And really a lot of that messaging is similar messaging to that that I'm certainly saying to myself, but what I listen to it. I also come to a realization understanding that I haven't achieved a lot of those things, right? Like, I'm still trying to tell myself the same messages that I was trying to tell myself in that song. So yeah. Yeah. I mean, I definitely speaking to myself a lot of time to the song. But I feel like we we all need to kind of messages that are like we are good. We have valuable. We are not our shadows. You know, we we are. We are. We are greater than that. Well, this is the thing that is really exciting about living in this age of YouTube, and sort of alter do it yourself music videos. I think of Feo harra, Jeremy Kerry, I think of Steve grand Albert, you Levi cries a lot of these game male artists and other LGBT Q artists are making a lot of really interesting music, videos, and putting them on social media, and sort of really laying themselves out bear, and the common thread that I see through all these videos is this idea of making sense with who they are as their offense excels? There's this idea that the person you are right now is. Not the real you or that. Somehow, you're Steve grant in his latest video. He's he's coming into conflict with as mayor self. Yeah. And and and so it made me think about like Allison wonderland, and, you know, the book through the looking glass, and even like Star Trek where this idea that pops up in literature and also film that the when we when we interact with somebody in a mirror universe, or in the mirror character that pops out of the mare, usually like an evil version of ourselves Lewis Carroll was trying to say with the book through the looking glass is that the mirror universe of ourselves is really is is a story as an allegory for science that the that our senses betray us. And through objectively through analysis is the way we can understand ourselves in the world that our senses are always lying to us. And so what you see is always what you get. And so for as LGBTQ people, there's a lot to process here for as LGBTQ people were always wrestling with who we are as our cells because we feel so much internalized shame and bigotry and discrimination. And we're trying to always make sense of that. And sometimes we're angry at ourselves for making poor decisions in the past. And also we need to understand that those poor decisions that we made in the past are still part of our thank selves. Yeah. We need to forgive ourselves for making poor decisions and move forward in our lives as artists or as. Yeah. I I would agree with that. And also disagree with that. I'm not even sure that all the decisions are poor right there poor because hindsight's twenty twenty and so we can't really put himself back the shoes into the position that we were like the fact that we are where we are aware like alive and healthy in the moment is needs that we made the right decision at the pass. I do think that I would disagree with with the the assumption of Lewis Carroll that our sense is that our senses of betray us. And I would say the opposite. I would say those things that. Aren't actual that are only perceived negative did in our psyche. Those are the things that betray us. And I think if you look at algebra artists that are creating new content. I think the thing that's wonderful about it is they are creating a new narrative the new normal. I think the reason that our psyches betray us is because we live in a society that imposes social mores and social norms upon us in us us being gay or in and of itself betray all of those social norms and mores. So it's impossible for us to understand ourselves in in a construct that is normal and good and less. You strip yourself everything which you have that you have been taught throughout your entire life. Tom are you saying that Lewis Carroll's Fulla shit? No. Wonderland was. Heroine was he wasn't he smoking opium. I think he may have been. Yeah. So, you know story the idea that he's trying to convey in in the idea is that the mayor mirror universe. Self is not necessarily like you're a villain. It's the what is it the ganger? You're you're evil twin it's actually just a better understand. It's a different understanding of who you reflection of who you are like a mirror. That's why they use it as a mayor. Right. But that but the idea you have to think about marriage at the time of Lewis Carroll. Mayors were shitty mirrors were like imperfect. There were flaw. They were they were full of imperfections. And so when people looked into the mayor's time, those mayors were distorted their images and so. Yeah. You do not look exactly like you do in America. Well, except for me. But that's that's the kind of thing is like, you know, in every time, you sort of making this video, and it's a very difficult place to be because it's so much easier. Talk about like for us. I think in some ways what we do is a little bit easier because we're usually like talking about somebody else's are or where sort of analyzing ideas or news items. Whereas in your case, you're sort of in a situation where you're going to have to make it up out of thin air and tell and put yourself in a very vulnerable place and tell your story through metaphor or directly. No. Yeah. I that. I do think that people don't understand really a lot of times. What what artist do? And I think people are very quick to to to comment on it into to consume it, and then to comment I in a way in which that that is their opinion is as valuable as the art that's created without really understanding what goes into that. But how do you void like getting into area of cliche? Like, you know, because we always hear people like think about outside the box. You gotta think outside the box. And I'm like saying you're thinking outside of the box is the most inside the box thing. You know? I don't know. I never wanna do anything really that. I've done before. Like, everything has a different angle to it at different twist to it. I mean, even if I go to lunch somewhere, I really have a hard time going the same place twice. You know? I think it's just like a Nate in my body that always wanna be pushing pushing pushing my senses and pushing my experiences and just seeing how I can see things differently. And I think the truth of the matter is I see the world differently. I grew up, you know, I mean this happens to this day, but I I get into conversations with people. And I remember this happening a lot growing up, and maybe this this is the idea of social norms when I was fully fully immersed in this hetero normative society as as a as somebody not claiming to be gay and. And I was you know, we'd have conversations. Everybody shares the perspective in dialogue, and I would say well feel that way I feel this way. And I remember over and over people. Your pin? You doesn't really count because you're so different. You're so weird. You know what I mean? Like just the way that I perceive the world in the way that I act in the world, I think is different than most people. So I think that works in my favor what certainly like a privilege to be able to make art and to be able to put so much time and energy into these videos. You know, and without a doubt as an artist it does place you in sort of an a different position than most people have. Yeah. Absolutely. And you know, in terms of your music videos. You're certainly doing a lot of things that are sort of embellishes like there was one was that make believe or you're just like lying naked and Dennis animation was like flowing across you, which must take an hours in years and days to make. Yeah. It was honestly that was one of the easiest video. Laying there naked. Yeah. I mean, we it took you know, the clock's there because it gauges how long shot is eighty minute shot. But once you press once you we dropped it into the editing and you fast forward it. It's done. You know, there's like. Probably took three hours of editing to make video, you know. Whereas the other videos on like forty fifty sixty hundred hours of adding, you know, there was lot more pre planning to make sure that everything was was going to hit perfectly. But once we got a good take of it. Then we were good to go. Currently you're right now singing live on Facebook with Devon green and her gentleman friend. Ned net. Douglas, douglas. Yeah. How's how's that project going along? Because it seems like a lot of fun just to get together with friend and such. Kick. Yeah. And seven lives right down the road, you know, sorts literally like five minutes to get your house, which in LA is gold in and of itself. But yeah, we've started writing we shot is video together We South three of its kind that'll be coming out on a month or so to profonde super cute. I can't wait for everybody to see it. But yeah, it's been fun. It's been fun just to do something. That's that's kind of light. And that doesn't have a lot of pressure. Even even recorded the song and making the the music video was at full of pressure. And the most the things that I do. Are like you said they're super ambitious the videos in the songs that I make. I do it. I do it in a very very tight budget. And I do things very ambitious. You know, you see my my videos, and they look like they cost one hundred thousand dollars, and they definitely don't. Why usually able to catch you guys are on a regular schedule with with Neten, Devon? But. It's ten o'clock on Fridays. Oh, is it always ten o'clock on Fridays? Okay. That's probably I'm usually up by that can jet Perry. Catch part of it. Yeah. Ten AM. You mean? Well, but that's. Central time is noon. Yes, I'm often eating lunch. And I was like, oh when I was growing up. They always have the shows it'd be like nine eight central. You know, remember that? Yeah. I never really knew it that man a little kid. And I was like what for me, you know, just assumed it was like math. And I'd be like, oh, it's just like the the the average of the two. So it must be eight thirty. I love the way you think Tom. Yeah. Everybody's really excited about Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon the gate church janitor from Maryland, the mar as a. And and you know, it's really interesting the fact that we're starting to see finally like openly gay singers and performers and people in in these mainstream TV and film projects and changes the dynamic for for people like you who's been throughout your whole life very much as a as a counter cultural figure as a sort of indie musician, and you know, like, what do you make of all this mainstreaming of like, queer music and culture to answer. Do you want? My honest answer like, what is April fool, so whatever you want. This feel really super happy about it. And I'm happy. There's so there's so many queer artists coming out right now. And they're doing really interesting work and their voices that have bad squashed throughout attorney. That are seeing the light of day in a way in which we can't even fully fathom Mike in a way in which the culture is so hungry for that their voices are being heard with more weight than regular regular had a row artists. And so I am super duper grateful for that. And really proud of that. And I'm proud of my contribution to making bat a possibility because I do think that I've been doing this for dozen years in those bunch of artists out there, you know, you named a bunch of them about ten minutes ago that have been doing this. Same thing as me. I don't think that this is possible without that groundwork being laid, but it's interesting because a lot of young people like don't understand this history. Don't even have an appetite for it or even older people too. They're just like they television and film is such a powerful medium that obliterates anything that we've been doing and even obliterates history it self after I personally like can't feel a little bit jealousy or frustration. There's my flip side that I was gonna say the odyssey of it is like and not even. So if I'm being honest. Yeah. Sometimes I frustrated only because. I'm grateful that it exists for other people. But it didn't this for me. And I'm all now. So it's like there's there's a certain amount of of of like sadness and longing that I sometimes feel that these opportunities were there for me like when I was calling and when I was knocking on doors people were like, you know, we don't have faggots play here. You know? And I definitely did get that, you know. So so I do have a little bit of envy for that. But at the end of the day, I wouldn't I wouldn't take it away. I would still want it to be there. But if you and you had had the same -tunities that Jeremiah on American idol has right now, it would also isolate you from people like us. Absolutely. I have. No, I don't regret. I don't regret my career. I feel a little bit sorry for these sort of like young queer kids who getting thrust into the spotlight so quickly. They one thing that they're missing out is on on the LGBTQ community, and those close friendships that you develop when you're Arctic career doesn't explode overnight. Now, that's true. And I do think it also gives it does. I think it also gives me perspective like I played everywhere. And I played horrible horrible shows that I've played great shows, and I met horrible people, and I met great people. And I I am grateful for all of those interactions. And I also know. Whom I real friends are and what are really is. I think it'll be harder for him to fully actualize as artist. Maybe I mean, he seems pretty he seems like he's doing really amazingly, especially the young person into songwriting really great always buying really great. But I think one of the things that I've been grateful for in some ways in not being able to have that mainstream success is maybe really a dig into myself as an artist more and more and more to the I can be truly authentic artists instead of having to placate to what what's gonna make the most money. So are you saying that like beyond say is not an authentic person? No, I'm saying that beyond that a different level. Right. I'm saying that if you get souped up by American idol when you're an unknown. You know, you you don't have a lot of control over what you're doing. If you're you're youtuber, you'd odyssey don't have a lot of control of what avoid doing because you just always trying to appease everybody. Right. And so I've gone through a lot of phases in my life where I tried different things in an attempt to appease people in an attempt to play with algorithms in an attempt to make the money in the way that I was supposed to make the money, and that was really unfulfilling to me had that been successful. I might be trapped doing that, Tom. You mentioned you've had some shitty. Gays over over the course of your career. What's the shittiest you ever had? I had some fairly traumatic gigs this past fall. Like, I don't usually have bags, but to horrible gigs in a row when was at a pride festival where the this sound guys were just fucking it up. I literally yelled at the com guys. From behind a microphone in the middle of the stat. That was pretty horrible. What did you say to them? Well, it was all this integrated video so it's just big video screen, and it was integrating my videos with my songs, and then they just for like fucking it up. Like literally had a press play like a button play it, you know. And I just said I just fire them like, no, stop it. I did have a gig once in DC ten years ago where the sound guy got fired in between apps. He was drunk. So they like in the middle of one of the acts the owner called different sound guy came to this app. Fire the sound guy that we re sound check for like twenty minutes and then finish the show, but I had a horribly traumatic one in Fort Lauderdale this fall where playing sunshine cathedral, which is being which is beautiful on the sounds impeccable. It's a church. It's a it's a it's a church called sunshine cathedral. But it's really wonderful. And they've invested a lot and civility to make it wonderful for for concerts like this, and I've played there for a long time. And it's always really great. So I always wanted to highlights, and it was just a wonderful wonderful show. And you know, the, you know, how you have the shows were just the audience just like totally in your hands and just like the energy is palpable. And then. Now in change into the show with three songs I had. In old college buddy of mine show up completely shit faced with his dog. Like, this is kind of place where you could hear a pin drop at the back of the room, right? I know all of a sudden this this this guy shows up with his dog screaming like heckling the whole time, and I had to tell the fuck up like fifteen times from set. And then finally the show's over, and then it just it just turned. It was just turned into this accused. He was definitely like having a nervous breakdown at my show. And then they some history because like it it was like he he became like this big Trump supporter, and like attacking people online when Trump was like doing the thing do like getting elected guiding getting into fights with my husband and stuff. So it was almost like yes, it was like for me ahead talked to a couple of years, but he was one of my best friends. And so I went there I called him. And I text him a couple times trying to mend fences, and then he didn't show up to the gig. And I was like, okay. He doesn't have time or he doesn't want to. And then he shows up in the so there's like all this added energy to two, and then it was probably he was probably there for an hour an hour and a half after the screaming. In telling like joining the fight people and tell him like they were like, you know, they're just a fact that they're going to get what they deserve. And like I that he just broke down crying. And it was just like this whole Arandas thing or end this around hot pan out to become out of the closet. No, he's not no just pan out. I mean, it was just over like essentially like physically had to. Get rid of him. And I mean, it sucks that it was at this place. It's so nice. It's so harsh so friendly because it was at a club that bouncer would just bounced you know, what I mean, that's dope opera or something. It was straight out of a fucking soap opera. And then it was just like, you know, what he's like screaming at me than crying, and this and this and like I was like get the fuck outta here. Like, you gotta go, you know, this is should do drag because he could have snatched the wig off your head and turned it into like real of viral moment. Yeah. It was knowing that was in a way of I remote. It is literally like Email from my mom the next day. All my friend was at the show data data. I'm like, so in the podunk, Wisconsin. My mom's hearing about this thing that happened in Fort Lauderdale the night before you know, and and that's what everybody's talk. That's what everybody left the show talking about. So we took this wonderful beautiful highlight, I would have been a highlight of my career performance. It was that good. And it was that powerful. It was the energy was out pop -able, and it turned into this just like horrible, horrible horrible thing. That reminds me of Marcel Deschamps painting on glass at what is it called the bride stripped bare by her bachelor's. It's also called the large glass, and when it was being exhibited it fell and broke into thousands of pieces and Marcel Duchamp, and has brilliant. Wisdom said now the painting is finished. Double entendre, right? Sometimes when these these flaws, these imperfections, these these train wrecks that happen to our near and dear works of art can actually be a really transcendent moment and finish it in both ends of the word. No one is going to forget your performance ever. Yeah. But I mean, yeah. No shoot. I think from a personal perspective. What you're saying is true because it was almost like this person who I would spend who is one of my best friends spent so much time thinking about and so much sadness about you know, because I think maybe maybe you guys had mushrooms. But I know I talked to a lot of people they did when when when our kind of world was turned on its head. And you realize the extent of of who who was on the Trump train and who felt like this about and gay people or Mexican people are Muslim people you realize. Oh, this is so much more pervasive than I possibly Magid in. It's not only pervasive. It's pervasive in the way. That's that's allowed and ugly. They feel like they finally get the chance because they were quiet for eight years and doing y'all favor by not criticizing down. And you just kind of like, what are you going to criticize him for you know, what really? So yes, so yeah. Well, this meal reports. That's that's the ambulance. That's a siren truth hunting that was. With his Miller report. Everybody seems to be focusing on the fact that it sort of exonerates Trump, but Trump on record is admitted to all kinds of crimes. So if the Miller report doesn't and. Right. Yeah. Implicate Trump in major conspiracies and fraud. It's the meal. I think it's a Miller reports fault that here's a person actually admitting to a crime leaving trace of all his crimes is still like you have this Republican who's actually, you know, Mueller Muller is actually friends with bar the guy who's putting together this four page summary summary, you know, who's trying to cover up the investigation so very little faith in that. But you know, where it's going to go. But it is like it's really up to us to put pressure in the voting booth and on the streets to get rid of this tyrant that we have in our hands. Yeah. It's really. Yeah. I agree. And it's really it's really interesting place in which we live, and I think for me just talking forever like perspective. It was really sad for me that that our friendship was hurt by until that moment. And I think. Transformative thing for me was like, oh, I just don't really need this at my life at all. Whether that's whether that's my neighbor or my brothers, or my best friend. You know, what I mean, it just really like those titles don't really exist. If it's if it's damaging it's hurtful, you know, who I would love to see you do a collaboration with besides Jeremiah, the gay church, janitor, who is mayor Pete Pete booty judge judge how do you pronounce his name boot edge edge? Buddha. Judge who's that? He's run for president. I gape mayor front running candidate for president United States and the mayor of south bend, Indiana. And he's like your cousin Honey heels wholesome wiz. Br brilliant, progressive wise and able to bridge the devised definitely gay to watch out for in the future. Your favorite gay dating app? For the big boys growl was sold. Earlier this month for eleven point eight million dollars. We should have been doing an apple this time and not a podcast they made so much money. And you knew I loved about that app. And those guys are friends of mine. So I'm really happy for that. But they're they you know, you could do like the shouts all the time. And then like living in a big city you get like three or four or five shots day. You know what I mean? Those shots cost like five at twenty bucks. Let's say like fifty bucks. We'll just average it. And then you think like how many major cities are you're like at least twenty. So even just like that you're adding adding it up and explain to the people with a shout is because a lot of message out to a radius so five mile radius. So everybody if you're like, hungry hungry in Broome three oh, eight at the Hilton, and you can send that message to everybody within a five mile ten mile or twenty mile as a lot of come dumping. It is in every way you and I saw it for two or I would like show up in town send a shout out to. Everybody in the area about my show, and then start conversations with people and Bill relationships. Did you get any Harney people coming to your shows expecting sex instead of music that was this really funny time this is so long good now, gene, Oregon where I I was sound checking this guy was there really early sitting right in front, and he was like. Belly? And he just kept saying. Daddy. You get that a lot don't you? Do because he was like get your get. My my space message, and this is a long ago announcing no, I did it. But I went to the Cox liked in the old member that wifi Jenner like that little wifi USB thing from like sprint. I don't know it doesn't matter. But I immediately looked at the message was like, this is fucking hilarious. Guess hilarious. What does it say? I don't remember. I'm sure something crude. You know what I mean? It's like just the you know, what all of those felt it was a good marketing tool though for yourself growl. I yeah, I liked it. I can also send world you can send that worldwide writing. And so you can just hit essentially, I think it's like five or seven million pockets like that, you know, you literally sending a message to. All those millions of pockets at the same time. So I mean, I don't know what's what is going to give him a great ad right now in the. Endorsed by Tom gos-? I n those scholar for sure I met so many. I honestly I've met so many wonderful people to growl that have become really good friends of mine so place to go for the big boys. People who like the big boys. You remember the Spice Girls? Right. Are you a fan the Spice Girls? Yeah. If you wanna be MandA, you gotta get with my friends. Well, yes, they actually did get with their friends, and they meant it. So Melanie Brown? Best known as Melby or scary spice scary spice Melby, spilt some hot hot girl on girl by CT Melby said she had sex with ginger spice Geri Holwell back in the day when they were in Spice Girl, Spice Girls, they were getting with their friends literally. And she says what we were best friends just happened. Gotta say though, ginger spice. Has great boobs. And I think that's that's wonderful. I think happens a lot more time that time we say are you saying like groups like new kids on the block one direction they all had a little bit of gay trip. I mean, I'm not saying that. But I think that that probably is happening and has happened moved in the Beatles all off together they did. Wait, really, why do you say that? Poem currency set it, and if you're not too long ago, but he say said we would jerk off. And then like, you know, we turn on the porn jerk off. And then somebody would be like, oh, Brigitte Bardot Marilyn Monroe, and they talk about like the hot woman, they're attracted to be liked with the church hill. Yeah. That's I mean, I don't know. That's cool. I think. With a lot of very attractive. Very desirable musicians. Yeah. I've never had experience onto or I am trying to think. But no sorry experience any other musicians getting on with other musicians. No, it's interesting. You guys like sort of for being, you know, gay. This is the idea like, you know, you're gay musicians, your query musicians, and you're expected to be a little bit more, you know, free Lovin, but in reality, it's usually the opposite, isn't it? Well, I can only speak for myself. But here like I seldom see any other musical acts that we see touring like, you know, being I, you know, mostly not. They're not gonna make you privy to listen. But usually. Told me story, but it's not stuff. I want to repeat. Tale chains and whips and stuff like that. Yeah. But I'm saying, obviously, they have life. I'm just saying like in terms of the touring like hooking up with other musicians in that in that space. It's like having sex with a co worker, you know, it's like if things go wrong things can go really really wrong. Like, I'm hearing this is like a way in which I can grow and next time. I talked to you. Maybe I'll be have better answers for you. I'm just trying to talk about this phenomena. Right. So like when you work with somebody really close, the does Bill a very close, bonded, so sometimes romantic feelings to develop but the danger of that is it's sort of like farting in an elevator. If something goes wrong and can go really horribly wrong. Whether that is, you know in your office, or is it your musicians on its or together, you're still working you depend on the cooperation that goodwill, and if you have sex with somebody on the tour, and then, you know, hearts get broken, it can tear the band apart. Well, and I also feel like now to be weird. But like like, Texas not that important, right? So it's like it's like even if I wanted to do that, even if I had thoughts of doing that for me the project the saw the video is far more important, right? I am. I am creating this thing. I'm telling the story. I am making this beautiful piece of art to put out into the world to exist for all of as far as we know. Right. How many lives going to impact by this song? Visit really great responsibility. That I feel when I when I'm creating and having an orgasm is wonderful. Is that is is much less important to me than that all of that stuff that I just thought. Now, the dating app tender is doing new feature I guess, which is they wanting to verify the height height verification badge. And h v b so it's something they've had for a while. I guess then finally rolling out because a lot of guys lie about their height on the dating apps, especially. They're going gonna have like a penis size verification app as well. Right. But see, I don't know how that would work with the tender one you have to go outside and stand next to some kind of commercial building. Then you state the verifying and you'll get a badge. Fear profile. So I don't you know, they're going to be able to measure you against a door or something. I just doesn't. Those are modern smartphones. Now have two lenses on the back of the phone. And so if you're if you they'll have a measuring app where you can measure a person's heights or the length of your penis, or you know. You know, I've actually gotten a picture on one of the apps of somebody's peanuts. And it had a height like it had a length verification kind of thing on it. It didn't it. Sure. Did I probably saved I can send it to you. And it was eight inches, and he didn't respond to me after that. So I never got divide our fight in person. But I got straight guys Tinder are they live. They're hike is only fourteen point five percent of US males or over six feet tall. And so a lot of guys say that like they're five ten, you know, the really they're five six, you know, that he's still I set it lying about my height for a totally opposite reason. Why why because nobody believes how short I taller you. Exactly, I'm probably like five five. Short do not like a little person. I if I say if I say anything less than five six I get into arguments. Oh, people don't believe it people are like, no, it's not true. And and so I just say five six it's easier. Five six nobody argues. It's it's there they still sometimes think it's to shore. But they're also like the it's not it's not agree. Just enough for them to argue about it. Right. I'm the same way with my age on his apps to you know, people. I lied about my age on these apps just because otherwise it all becomes about my age. If you like what you see in the photos, you're gonna like me, you know, I say forty plus like forty one or forty two or something like that. I take a decade because if I actually put my religion, which is fifty two that's all all my God. I can't believe you're fifty to your fifty two and then. Well, when you're in this part of the reason like a lot of people, you know, and I certainly like the party in my opinion is a little bit over when it comes to like hook up apps or dating apps is just that you just dealing with so many people's mental health issues that you just kind of becoming a almost like a free therapist for the general public, and you're not getting anything in return. You're totally describing my life. And I'm like, you know, that there are actually apps out there that will actually you can talk to a therapist about like all your exerting issues, or you know, you can hire a personal trainer to give you advice on fitness. You can there's a lot of sources, but it feels like, you know, these dating and hook up apps are fulfilling much more than a function than allowing people to come together. It's also creating a mental space for people are very isolated and lonely. Yeah. And. I think that's true. I think for me that also exists social media. You know, I I think I very accessible, and I think a crate work that's really powerful to people that are struggling. So I seem like a very easy person to. To like to to take from emotionally that makes sense. Sure, I feel like I have so much to give. And I and I do, but but I do find that I become very depleted. Well, that's what we started. Our patriot patriotic dot com slash feast, a fun. And if you want life coaching art coaching or just a sympathetic friend to listen to to talk to you can join that tier and several times a month. We would Skype with you one on one and talk about your your your projects your life as an artist. It's completely confidential, and you know, Mark, and I both have a graduate degrees in our fields have a master's in art and Mark has a masters in business. And so in terms of like our qualifications experiences. Have you guys listeners of the show? It might be something that might be really useful to you in terms of like addressing, you know, your creative blocks in terms of addressing your isolation in terms of developing and growing audience. You know, coming into feast of fun and having an experience with us through patriot might actually be the even if it's just for a week or a month or a very short amount of time in my actually be something. That's really Hughes full to you in growing and going to that next step in your career. That's awesome. And that's sort of urged people who sort of, and I would are Jew to do this to like create a space where you do get your needs met and are able to help other people with their needs as well. We're we're sort of out there. And you're putting ourselves there is as media personalities, it it can be very draining, especially we're doing it on the internet. Whether it's no financial compensation for it for sure, it is interesting. The dynamics of of patriot versus Kickstarter versus like pay pal. Donations versus merchandising versus online ad sales are dramatically different. And just because you know, you see somebody who has millions of us on YouTube or millions of Scribner's on on for their podcast doesn't necessarily mean that there's people are going to be financially successful or even around in the future. And if if you really love their work, you'll it to yourself to ensure that that is going to be around. And that's why people like if you're excited about, you know, Kamla Harris or Pete buddy judge or feast to fund or Tom Goss or whoever it is. Is even if you just give them one dollar it can make a huge difference in their lives and be around for years to come. And actually be able to do what they're going to do. That's why I gave a dollar to booty judge. You know? Yeah. And it's it's not much what I can do because I I don't have a lot of money. But it's like it's part of it is just me sending on the message. I believe in you. I give a dollar to Bernie Sanders. I give a dollar to Hillary Clinton. You know, it's it's idea of like participating democracy and participating in your in your cultural life is something that will help you be a better person will help you think outside of the box. So you know, you want to build a world you wanna live into? And so when you give that dollar you're helping to create that world, and I wanna live in a world where the judge judge or fused to find is their time. Is there? Is there, and you know, I've really the more. I read about Pete the more. I love him. And I don't know if you'll be president someday. But I love his platform. And I love that a queer person is out there and is saying reasonable, intelligent, charming handsome. What do you look at him? And you look at Donald Trump. It's just like please make this chain a monster versus a gal Knight in shining, armor hero. You know? And and it is such a contrast in different. So, you know, I wouldn't mind not people judge riding on a horse to Washington and slaying that dragon, and even if I'm Bernie supporters even Kamala Harris support, it's you know, you can support those, and you can also support Pete, you know, as queer people we need to. Well, this is like politically I don't grasp why people feel like they have to have one candidate the rooting for. Yeah. And right now here in Chicago. We have to really qualified in amazing women running for mayor and either Lori Lightfoot or tourney preckwinkle are going to win their the to your house. Definitely gonna be. Yes. It's definitely awesome deal unless you know, repulsive. You know, somehow. They will be able to do anything at this point. Exciting at this point, though, the you know, there's a lot of, you know, some people have problems with both these candidates won the winkle has been an insider for a long long time and Lightfoot has never been elected official. Also, people have some concerns with her and being part of the police oversight committee here, and as you know, there's a lot of issues with the Chicago police police. So it's it's going to be interesting to see how this all turns out. I've voted already. I hope everybody else has voted heavy. Top. What's what's new on the horizon for you? What's going on you coming back to Chicago to see it soon? I need to I'm I'm creating so much content right now. My new record. I went to get it mastered last week. So that is finished. It's wonderful. It's beautiful. I'm producing seven music videos at the same time right now. Roese it's bonkers. So essentially probably late summer. You're just going to start being bartered with the best stuff I've ever made, and it's really fucking gray. And it's really powerful, and it's really fun, and it's all sorts of different things happening collaboration. What state of undress will you being? Well, this one video also so yes, so you'll see plenty full Backle full Budi, judge judge. Yeah. I'm thinking I'm thinking like. Yeah. One of the videos as me completely naked the entire time. When videos is yes. Me shirtless on the videos. His me naked making Alice somebody. There's definitely going to be some time skin at some of these and now them, and it's always it's always in a way which is case fuller. Interesting are contributing to the story, not not not good to it as, but, you know, oh, come on little gratuitous never heard anyone what are you doing with from dentist franchisee is that how you say is last name Daniel Daniel from mean girls you've worked with him. Actually, he's in a couple of video. So so he's in he's in my first radio call for door, and he plays my counterpart on. We just shot a second video in Quebec call Quebec, and he'll be one final video call regretting it. So there's definitely a narrative arc with him. So it's been kind of really interesting. It was really great to work with him on the door. And that was really interesting definitely spurred a friendship, and when I sent out a call for Quebec, he was cute. You know, we had a good time. It was like, hey, man. You know what? Made sense because it's the same character. So it's been really really nice getting to work with him more and really really building a friendship both personally artistically, Dan, Daniel friends friends says he is. Yeah, he played Damian in Maine girls. I'm a little bit in the foggy about who. He was in the movie, I think he's his characters the gay best friend or less. Louis. Yeah. Because this movie came out in two thousand four. Yeah. Well, also, the being in that movie kind of he says forced him to stay in the closet because people just wasn't ready to come out when he made the movie and everybody assumed he was gay.

FOF #2722 The Bearded Belly Dancer

"Yeah. Initially drawn to belly dancing as a form of exercise camera soon discovered that it was a great way to express femininity, which was something they always struggled with. But after a decade of gyrating those hits camera came out as trans male which put into question everything, including his identity as a belly dancer for camera. This meant either giving up his life's passion or having to readjust dancing means is a trans artist today the fierce and fabulous camera Chicago's first trans masculine belly dancer joins us to talk about their journey and belly dancing performing drag king and incorporating belly dancing into burlesque, plus a Russian man writ Sophist closed before trying to board a flight claiming has nudity when make him more aerodynamic Canada, discovers the world's largest Toronto Soroush rat and grimy who's viral video where she licks. Airplane toilet seat grosses out the world. I'm Fausto for knows. I'm Mark Kelly. And this is feast of. Guess what? What we've got a new patriarch page. Oh my God. We do where you go to patriots dot com slash feast of fun. The audience has been asking. Hey, why don't you guys do a patriot? So we finally did their baby out patriae on feast fun patriot vs. Our guest today is Chicago's first trans masculine belly dancer camera who for over eighteen years performed as a belly dancer, and then three years ago came out trans and because we tell everybody you can have it all cameras still does both very very well. I think he's the fun camera. Yeah. Thank you very much for having me. I'm excited to be here. So tell it sells your extraordinary journey because you I discovered your passion for your for your life through dance as a belly dancer. What what got you where you're kid who watch I dream of Jeannie or. Kind of. Yeah. But that actually wasn't where the belly dance stuff came from. So it was a friend of mine back in. This was actually in Louisiana. She wanted to start like do exercise and stuff like that. And I couldn't go to the gym. And I hated going to the gym and she couldn't go to the gym. So we found these old there this is how long ago it was it was VHS tapes there were on sale for like three for ten dollars. And that Walgreens or something yard sales. The Discovery Channel store. So no, I don't think. So. Yeah. Anything they exist anymore. But yeah. Discovery Channel used to have a store and they would sell VHS. And so they're having these sales on VHS tapes, and they had three they were the belly dance twins Vena, Nina. And so I got them and one of them was like fat burning and all that. So I'm like, oh, this sounds great. And I continued on with it, and my friend did not. So I was doing it for exercise, and then you get into shape. Absolutely. Yeah. Yeah. About cardio, or is it just hips is like birds calories it well a little bit of both. So you can do cardio. In fact, I teach cardio class on Sundays. That's belly dance. So you can do cardio. But it's also a lot of muscle controls. You have to build your muscles. So now I've had to go back to the Jim which I hated in order to be a better belly belly dancer. So the end the bodybuilding world, it's very controversial. But there's a lot of people who wanna do vacuum poses again. Do you know what that is vacuum? Pose? No, I don't talk basically when you suck in your gut so much doing that sort of Indian Swamy kind of thing. Yeah. Okay. To make your midsection as tiny as possible that is classic bodybuilding like see vintage like Arnold Schwarzenegger, or they're all pushed in and that sort of training your midsection to do that is actually really good for your for your pose for your gate. More your movement. Yeah. We'll having a strong core. I mean, that's important for belly dance because we have to have a really strong course. So it's like I have. Really great set of ABS underneath my little protective covering, but you know, it's gonna keep more somehow. Right. But yeah. So it's it's you know, a lot of work. It's a lot of because I use my hips a lot. So my oblique really, strong points and stuff. Yep. Yep. Shimmy planks going to plane, then shimmy in place, you have to show me that one after the pike. Yeah. If you really wanna hate yourself afterwards plank. Yes. This guy who just applying for like thirty five minutes. Nobody some years what share can do to really long only five minutes. This guy did it for like thirty five. I don't know if it's the world record. But I was I was super impressed only for a minute. I might be able to do to minutes. I've never timed myself because it doesn't really matter that much to me. But I could probably do two minutes. Can you just grab me like what your performance was like before you came out as trans belly dancer? So it was really hard for me in the beginning. Because I was not very feminine like when I started belly dance. So it was kind of like this weird hobby that I had I'm like, yeah. I like where big baggy shirts, and I don't like to show off my body. But here I'm gonna be dancing for you half. Naked. So it was weird. Did you wear traditional bra? And then like a little belt Felton and all that kind of stuff bells and all the fringe and all that stuff. I completely feminine tried to stem in as possible where make up all the time trying to get like really into. And I mean, I'm always into body positively, but in the feminine form, you know, trying to celebrate Kerr's and being proud of my breasts and all that stuff, and it was really hard for me. Because inside I'm like dying. Like, I'm supposed to be so body positive and love my boobs, but I really really hate them. So yeah. Weren't quite there yet to identify strand. Right. It took a while. I mean, it was like the only trans people. I knew were trans women. So I didn't know that you could be transmitted like a transmitter trans masculine. And I mean, it makes sense now it's like, oh, well, I mean, of course, you can be trans masculine ever seen a video or read some more online at this woman. She was she was a belly dancing, and she's very outraged. She felt like belly dancing was being co opted. Did to please, ma'am, originally something that women did to entertain each other during childbirth or something like that is that kind of thing. Yeah. Some of the we call it like wish -tory because some of it isn't really real. And some of it is. So the whole childbirth thing is no, that's you know, like dancers have babies all the time. And they're like, well, I mean, I guess it kinda helped but in other ways it really didn't because you have more control over your belly muscles. But that's not necessarily going to help. It's not like they're just like let me shoot out. Not at all. So in your dance training. What led you to your interest in martial arts? Ken PO jujitsu karate kendo third place in the world taekwondo championships. Yeah. Do not fuck with so martial arts came first. Okay. So when I was thirteen I got picked on a lot as a kid. So my parents put me into taekwondo in order to defend myself and me self confidence, and that sort of thing. So I started martial arts. I and then as a beginner I went to world championships, which I think they're still held there. But at the time they were held in New Orleans. And so my sensei took me to world championships as a beginner. So it was a white belt beginner beginner like only been doing it for like a couple months, and I won third place in world championships. Like in the world. I was as a beginner third place where those championships anything like the karate kid movies kind of your opponent, really attractive? You know? At the time. I was I was a little girl. So so I fought against other girls. There was a Russian lady. Who was very intimidating. Really? Yes. Thankfully, she ended up getting disqualified before I ended up having to fight her. Juicing or something. No, she was heading people where they shouldn't be hits. So they're scoring places. So the Belcher so blackbelt tournaments or different. So like what you see in credit kid like they can sweep legs and do all that kind of stuff. You couldn't do that in beginner. You only had certain places where you could hit where you'd get a score and hit a point. And so she was hitting people in places where they weren't supposed to it was illegal hits, basically. And there was hurting people. So they disqualified her for that camera. Is it true that polishing car help you with karate? I mean, it could really like increase your strength in your muscles. I mean cross training. I mean thing walks off. Yeah. We're we're for the karate kid people. Don't know. What is he talking about a whole bunch of Coburg highs? And I got a picture with. Too. So that's the actor. So that's the bad guy. The guys in the movie or the Cobra is also there are a bunch of people dressed up as Cobra Kai's and dressed up as Daniel in the shower. So I got pictures of them from C T two. It was great shower reference from crazy kids. So when he dresses up as a shower to go to the Halloween. Fairly. Remember, I trust you always had the biggest crush on the villain Williams Zab, Johnny Johnny villain. He was the blonde villain was always villains. And what have you his name? He's still looks good today. He's like he didn't crack off. Macho didn't turn out to be some weird Trump supporter Jitty. Now, Scott bay. God for my child. So for you like, you sort of became really good at so many things we we actually have a we call it a sort of a jack-of-all-trades phenomena that queer people because we're sort of misfits where the middle children of society world, we aim to please each other, and we very attracted to show business. But even if we don't find ourselves in the path of show business, we become good at all kinds of things. And chances are you talked especially like, I've noticed a lot of modern trans people. They're like California Adams one of them musician field surgeon play right talk show, host doo-doo-doo like crazy long list of things. I think part of it is that we get scared that if we come out we're gonna fired from jobs, and so we try to horrid as many skills as we can. So that we can like, okay. Well, I can't make it in corporate life anymore because I'm trans or or gay. It's like, maybe I can be performer, and then I can do this. I'm going gonna do this. But what was your interest initially? I'm just sorry lay this on the audience Nali, all these other things you're also a research. Scientist with a background in molecular biology chemistry immunology and carry currently manage undergraduate laboratories in a local university. Yeah. So yeah. My I bachelor of science in microbiology. But when I graduated microbiologists were kind of like not needed released. So I had a lot of training biochemistry. Molecular biology, I've done cancer research. So like major cancer research funded by the army multiple millions of dollars. So oh, wow. The army was give people cancer. No. So the army considered breast cancer to be national emergency because it was killing so many people. They basically figured out that it was like if we keep going, and we don't figure out a way to cure, breast cancer. We're not going to be able to have enough people to defend ourselves. Fuck out. Really? Yes. So they started funding breast cancer research public information. It is now. Wow. Are they still funding? It, you know, I don't know the grant that I was on ended. But that particular researcher has gone on. I don't know I've lost contact with her. So I don't really know if she's continuing on with. It's fascinating. What do you think is causing breast cancer to escalate that number's always been that way? I mean cancer has always been around. It's not really a new phenomenon. But I mean because we actually technically. So here's here's what's going to blow your mind, technically, we all have cancer. All right now it happens all the time. It's like a normal cell process like your cells whenever they divide sometimes they divide incorrectly. But your body has special cells that are called natural killer cells that go around and try to find these cancer cells, and when they find him they killed them. But what happens is the cancer cells some of them will learn to hide from your immune system. And that's when they become the problem, and you get like what we think of cancer. So we're exposed to toxins that sort of our immune system in. Purdie? Right. And that's why we're not the cancer can hide it has time to hide. Right. And I mean, there's there's a lot of things that cause cancer. So there's no leg one thing. Like this. This rate here is what causes cancer. There's never going to be one. 'cause there's also never going to be one cure either. Because everyone when you get cancer, it's your own cells. It's not like there's an invader coming in. So it's really like your your. Cure has to be tailored each person. So like, what type of cancer they have where it originated how it mutated? So usually requires at least one or two mutations in the to become cancerous. So they say a lot of modern diseases actually our immune related disorders to some degree with HIV and aids or you know. Just the body attacking itself. Allergies allergy chancer and all that stuff. Do see like. Probably somebody who knows a lot about what is in the in the future. As we of get better at treating diseases will we be able to radically these if fighting for cancer and fighting for HIV and aids and autumn Yoon disorders sort of interconnected some degree. I mean, it's hard to say with cancer because because it's so individual we can get more and more effective treatments for cancer. But there's no real way at the moment to stop cancer from starting. We'd have to monitor all of ourselves all all the time. And the like, Nope. You can't you know, you know, there's no way to do that not not currently, and there's no real lake kind of drive towards sort of research. So we're we're looking for treatments that actually are more effective. So we'll be able to beaming out of our bodies, right? Yes. That would. Bull space. Bullying me. I is you're always aiding and then they just beam the food out of your stomach. In the future. So three years ago. You just come out as trans. Yes. And that point it was kind of a hard decision for you. Because all of these things that you really loved in terms of the belly dancing were sort of brought into question. Should can. I continue right. Yeah. So it was like bellydance was has always been kind of like seen as this really Oltra feminine thing. You know, that only women do which is totally incorrect, but it's perceived that way. And so I was like can I still have a career as a belly dancer and be trans and there are famous male belly bellydancers? So I'm like, well, I know I can be famous as a male, but our people because I'm like, I'm in the public eye. There's no way I can just disappear and then come back as a male belly dancer. I'd have to basically transition in the public eye. So, you know, it was kind of like, I can't just be a male dancer. I'm going to have to be a translator. And can. So can I have a career with that? And. There actually is another trans dancer who kind of showed me that that you can. So there's a dancer in Texas named conus and Dr Kona draconic Sokoto's. Yeah. Vampire, so dragon actually Koto Jonas. Yeah. And he's a fantastic dancer. We actually did a duet. And we went like mildly viral in terms of belly dance. We went viral on YouTube when we did it do at together. So first time ever to trans masculine belly dancing on the same stage. So how did you did your style of dancing change from you know, before you transition to after you transitioned a little bit? So my my presentation changed, and so and then because my muscle mass changed, you know, it's like before I had large wide hips all of my weight was in my. But now, I have I still have white hips because that's never gonna change, but I have wider shoulder. So it's like my center of gravity changed a little bit. And so there are some movements that are easier for me. Now, we do back. Bends and what are called Turkey stops where you bend over backwards and then dropped to the floor. It's kind of like a death dropped from a back bend. And so those became easier for me. And then just my presentation has changed, and then some of my movements have had to change a little bit. But it was really fascinating. So it's almost like you're arc started to change as you sort of started. Do you think that it's off? That's stock replacement therapy had an impact on that. So it was it was definitely like that physical change. And change the way you were dancing. Yeah. And then also people have told me, so I've had more than I've probably had maybe half a dozen to ten people come up to me and tell me that when I'm on stage. Now like they've seen me before a transition. And then they've seen me after they seem perform, and they're like, you're so much more us. So you're more confident on stage. You know, you project more your energy better. And then dancers that I've danced with both before. And after have said the same thing, my friend Sam she does American tribal style. She was my teacher for that. She had dance with me before and after and she told me, she was like, you know, your energy is different. You know? And it's just like you're so much more confident. And so that has changed and so it's actually gotten so much better for me as a trans masculine dancer because now I am not carrying this thing in the back of my mind where I'm like, I'm this weird lake. It was almost like doing drag, and I would call getting into makeup getting into drag because it was. You know? So it was like when I was presenting female. It was like I was so uncomfortable with it because I had to put on all this fake stuff in order to be able to perform and so that was kind of separating me for my audience, and I was having to project myself through this like character. It was like a cataract or something over my character. And I just couldn't get through it. And now that that's gone. I can my own personality can give. Yeah. Yeah. In terms of like, your gender identity, where do you see it now today? How would you describe it as somebody who's not you? So I'm trans masculine ideas. Trans man, but sometimes man kind of makes me a little uncomfortable. But for the. Yeah. I mean, I'm trying to get more comfortable with it. And I have a couple of trans guy friends. We talk about that sort of thing and kind of like almost like trying to reclaim men and be like, yes, I can be a man and not be toxic or poets were people. Right. Yeah. So it was your mask personally if I'm gonna person, it's not this great divide. Yeah. And I mean, I tend to kind of fall in the non binary area a little bit because I don't quite feel like totally like over on the man side. There's a part of me that still feminine that lakes makeup glitter and stuff like that. Which you know, I mean can like that to telling me when we're talking about you coming on the podcast belly dancing in a way is although you identifies transparency they know it's a way to celebrate femininity. Well, yeah. So I feel like I can connect to my feminity more in a healthier way. Because when I was trying to do it before I transitioned I was connecting to my femininity and away that was really really unhealthy for me. It was kind of like shoehorning myself. I'm like, we'll be feminine. I will I will I will leave, and it was just it felt so unnatural and now I can leg can be flirty and feminine, and I can wear skirts, and then I don't feel like I've been shoved into a weird bucks. I always try to explain that to gendered people, the, you know, the hetero normative people that and like drag for a lot of people are theater allows us to be more by pretending to be somebody else. It's easier to be authentic cells. And for you that you also identify as drag king. Yes, not a drag Queen even though you present as male and Dennis is male masculine. So it's like you're sort of saying the real me is also the stage me, which is also the fake means you're blurring the lines between real and fake too. Well, and then also I mean drag is about being like something you're not. And so I mean, like, I'm I'm non binary and trans masculine not fully like a man, but like as Gabriel knocks can be like fully male, you know deal. I mean, it's like I don't want to portray like toxic masculinity or anything like that. But it it gives me a way to kind of access the way more masculine side. Although he's gotten a lot more. Feminine too. Because you know, it's like sure your stage. Gabriel Knox's as you're drinking name. Yes. And do you ever run across any trans men who are like, you know, deeply into toxic masculinity. Sure macho jerks. Oh, yes. What do you say as little as possible? Manifest itself that I mean, they believed that they really buy into like you have to be a man's, man. You have to, you know, hunting and fishing and they really buy into those gender stereotypes. And you know, they they treat women badly, and you know, that sort of thing, and so the, thankfully, that's rare. But you do in counter them, and then a lot of them like pariahs, and we're circles and stuff or think. Talking about your ex. No, no. Even with you on this pockets talk about you know, my none of my drowns. But yeah, I mean, you see it. And then a lot of them are also like very anti non binary. So they think like non binary people aren't real and that sort of thing. So well, it's an interesting phenomena observed both in, you know, I'm not sure if this manifest itself as much in, you know, SIS gendered gay women lesbian circles of, but certainly like gay male circles and transfer have this issue of authenticity. That is that you're not real Li trans or really gate if unless you're meeting certain set of criteria. Yeah. And usually you hear this expression. Walk the walk. Not just talk the talk walk the walk. Yeah. And they wanna see surgery. They wanna see hormone replacement therapy. And if you're not doing that, you can't be in the cool kids club, right? And we. We call those people true scum truce go. So it looks like trust gum, but it's actually true scum. So in the Transworld, that's what we call people. Who are like, you know, you have to have this for you to be trans you have to at least want surgery, like if you can't have it you at least have to desire, it, you have to want to be on testosterone, you have to want to be, you know, like a man, and that's really kind of like, well why I mean, you can you know, like some people can't do top surgery. Some people can't do h RT's some people can't transitions freaked out by needles. Yeah. I mean, I mean, you can do the pumps for testosterone. So you can do. Gel gel creams, but not the pain in the by so masturbate with Joe. He probably could. And I would bet you that some guys have because that's supposed to increase the size of like transmittal penises. So have a gorgeous beard. Three of us. Here. You have the best beard. My beer. Well, you're nice and thick and you have market ivory admires. Those those tunnel. Red hairs it's hard to get by red hair altern gray now to go. Yeah. This. But so so for you like, I remember this in the nineties some trans men or women who people who are assigned female at birth who are experimenting with their gender. And I don't know. This is even true they were going around telling people that were taking austral Jalen rubbing on their face to get the beard grown. And I was like I don't think that does anything. Yeah. There's there's some people who think it does. And it's it's really complex because the testosterone. So there's what's called dihydrotestosterone t. And that's what actually causes you to have male pattern baldness, Andrew Janik. Yeah. So it's like in some cases, H T causes territory nearly lose hair on the head. But then it causes your beard to grow. And so people have been taking tea instead and using that to increase beard growth or to increase bottom growth. But then they think that if you rub it in that place, like just regular testosterone that it'll convert to t- there because my friend who. Pugh who's trans? Is there anything I can do to get a hair your chest? He's just like. We need. We need a fight for trans rights. So then everybody have the dick that they want the hair where they want it. No, it's all genetics. So why trans-phobia, you know, it's like just working against the you're wanting to have a big, dick. Ultimately ended today, you know, and we put as much money as we do in the military into like, well, you know, trans the technology. The people were empowered don't want people living there authentic lives. Yeah. So they wanna stop it every chance they got whether the gay people whether they're trans people whether they're artists, you know, like, no, no, no, no, no. Both of your name's Gabriel knocks and camera. Where names you chose for yourself. Yes. What are their origins because it's always been great stories. Yeah. So come rise from it's loosely based off of the Arabic word for moon. So el-ahmar or L come are, depending on the dialect. You're talking about I didn't want to take something that was like, absolutely Arabic. But also when I started dance there were five dancers with the same name. It was my dad name, which I'm not going to say sorry. So in the theme city five. There are five of us that had the same name. And so when we would have shows like here's another one, and here's another one, and here's this, and here's we would end up in shows altogether. And it was very confusing. So I'm like, okay. I'm just gonna take a stage name because this is ridiculous. I can't show. So. Yeah. So I didn't want something that was really it's like super era bec- because I didn't really feel like I was my place to take something that was like, overtly Arabic. And so I looked around and I saw that moon. So I googled it. I'm like does anyone have this? No one had it you couldn't find it. There was no in name, comma, and then like two months after I took the name there's like an Indian village somewhere that got bombed that was come on, man. This is why we. Yeah. So it was like, okay. But you know, like, it's basically a name that no one else has knock. She picks the Cox. Well, no. I mean, that's great. But so Gabriel, you know, angel which I didn't I'm like, I'm not Christian. So that really doesn't the home as Muslim. No. Nope. I'm well, technically, I'm pagan, but I'm not really practicing that much but. Okay. Jesse? That's that's the other other style of paganism. That's not not not the flavor that idea, that's Wickham wick. Yeah. Just kidding. Yeah. Baby dog. Yes. Good. But what we're seeing? You're you're you're able to try king name is Gabriel. Yeah. So it was like, you know, I name. Well, so Gabriel is my new my new legal name and name I self after Eric Evans cat. So the crow has has the cat named Gabriel. And because I didn't wanna name I self Eric driven because I felt that was a little bit too. You know, like, okay. Well, losers. Your your big for so comic. I do. Yeah. So I named myself after his cat instead the beautiful name Gabriel such a lovely name. And so I took that and knocks was just kind of like Email address for Gabriel Knox's king night angel. So it was like Knox means night. Like angel of the night sort of thing. No, you know, one of our other favorite guests of the podcasts of a lot of our listeners will know her as pleasant game. But also as Princess for Honda. Yes. I know Princess for multiple workshops from her. How was that? What was that experience? Like, she's hilarious. So I don't know if you know this. But if she walks into a room like they electricity in the room does weird things she's very into electric energy. Yes. And I have witnessed this. So like anyone if they're going like, oh, yeah. Whatever. No. I have seen this happen. Like, she walks into a room and the lights dim. It's. It's really weird. Yeah. I mean, the podcast. Yeah. Kind of weird stuff. Equipment doesn't work right around or. Yeah. Press buttons, no long to work. Be in a room with her and see what because we talked to her over the phone, and I'm always like, she's just dropping the phone. You know? She's like a phone starts malfunctioning. My wife doesn't work in the house and stuff like, okay? No. It's totally her name Gabriel. There's of course, there's the, you know, the angel Gabriel the Michael and stuff what is the meaning of theirs expression when Gabriel blows his horn like it's an times. Yeah. So he's the nounce of Armageddon. Was that was that a factor, and you're using that name as well? No, no. I just really liked the name Gabriel. I mean, it was mainly the cat because that was a name that I gave a character in musical that. I wrote glamour in America. It was it was kind of a cross between vita, and and Romeo and Juliet and takes place in the future in a post nuclear apocalyptic earth. Okay. And Gabriel is the gay president who is a right wing figure who's in the closet because he's gay launches thermonuclear war. You know, destroys all earth and makes everybody into almost near dead Alpine's. Well, that's definitely not me. So. What's interesting about the name? Gabriel is also somebody who like announces change is the message messenger Besson's. Can you see yourself as that like in some ways that you're like, you know, sending a message? Yeah. Definitely. So especially in billions. And this was kind of the reason why I wanted to come on the podcast was to kind of tell people about like what Billy dance is that. It's not like this weird lake. Strange white lady old lady hobby. Actually that it's fun that anyone can do it. We try to be very very body positive, and that sort of thing. So it's like that's the kind of message. I want to get out there and that it's queer friendly. So it's like, they're trans people. Like, I'm not the only answer out there. There's a couple of us. And so that it's something that everyone can do. And so that was kind of like the message. I wanted people to know that you know, belly dances. Really cool. It's great exercise. It's fun. It's really challenging it's one of those rabbit holes. Like, you'll never ever learn at all. So if you want to just have something that is going to be with you forever and ever and ever and you're going to keep doing until you drop dead from it. It's belly dance. So you can't just put a towel on your way and go now. Definitely do the dance of the seven veils. No. Although so I started burlesque recently, and I do some belly dance there. And one of our shows that we had recently was all about kink and the guy who hired me wanted me to do veils as a Hanky code sort of thing started pulling out veils of different colors, and I use peaches Hanky code song. And so it was pulling out different colored veils dancing with them. And then I ended up doing a black veil and danced to Depeche mode. Master and servant. So. Yeah. And so I guess people are asking, you know, about your beady SM play. Do you get put of it? It's like being a performer is you're putting yourself out there. And you're getting a lot of people sort of like, you know, your vied ING, it's a very flirtatious practice and good actors good performers are tend to be you know, slutty a little bit pride capital ass. Totally fine. How do you manage or negotiate that you're putting yourself out there in a very sexual body positive way? And sometimes, you know, you have to tell people know. Yeah. Well, for Billy dance, we try to keep billions like wholesome and family friendly as possible because it does have this kind of image of being, you know, like really, you know, like the whole like soultion dancing for the Sultan, and that sort of thing, which is really orientalist and not at all what it is. So we try to keep it as a wholesome image as possible. But it's like you're dancing like with a body and your dance your dancing half naked. So of course, it's going to be sensual and sexual. In a way, and people are going to take it that way. And that's fine. But belly dancers are always like you can't mix burlesque belly dance. You just can't. And I'm like, well, why not because both of them are celebrations of the body. You know, and it's like there's nothing wrong with our bodies. We can celebrate negotiate that resistance because you've sort of always breaking these walls. They're right. When the trans male female your sale, if you're stage self the world of of drag in the world of burlesque, well, I want to show people like dance when I do belly dance. I'm usually topless. I mean, I do have some times it depends on the venue. I have things where I can cover up if they, you know, they're a little bit more modest that sort of thing. But it's like I want to show my body. I'm like, I'm like, I'm my body is normal. There's nothing wrong with it. You know, I have scars. I've actually had people think my scars were makeup. And they're like, wow, you're make-up's. Great. Like, I had a straight guy. Tell me he's like your makeup is great. And I'm sitting there going why is this straight guide telling me my makeup is great thinking face makeup. And then later on his wife told me that he had thought that my scars were makeup because I was doing a sword dance. So he thought it was like. So, but I want to normalize trans bodies show. And then I wanted to do burlesque not just mainly for me to kind of get used to thinking of my body sexually and essentially and that sort of thing and being comfortable because it's like, I don't always have the same parts as like this man does. And so in lake is gonna weird people out when I do burlesque, you know, it's like do. I wear a Packer with it. Or do. I not does it matter. In the history of drag kings here in Chicago. They used to rule the roost. Yeah. And they would pack venues with easily five hundred people coming to see this Kogyo kings, the Vic theatre Margaret show sort of debuted her. Less routine and notoriously would strip tease and to show prosthetic penis and people are like Margaret cello. My glasses on I was like real. It's real. Okay. You know, but it was really complicated. Because a lot of the audience expected to see mortgage show do sort of her standard comedy. And she never spoke at all. I think to my recollection. And a lot of the audience was really off put by Margaret shows sort of reclaiming her body and her sexuality, and they're one of the funniest that didn't want her. It was weird. Why dance dot code microphones some jokes about her mother. I sometimes worry about that with burlesque when I do belly dance burlesque show. 'cause I'm always like are they going to expect me to take my clothes off when I'm doing belly dance. Because I I usually don't. Belly dancers that you tip them? Yes. You can't do just hand them the money or do you stick it in their bra? What do you do? Well, you shouldn't stick it in there. Well, yeah, it depends on the dancers. So some of them will offer what we call body tipping. Some dancers will not. So a lot of times they'll have a vase or a bucket or something like that that they'll come around with at the end of the show, and you can put them in there, or they'll have armbands where you can put it in their armband, if they offer to lake if they give you a hip, sometimes, they'll tease you show a hip, and then you try to put the dollar and then like new new, and then they'll offer it again and try it again, like, no, no, no. With it. So you can do that. But you never want to grab someone in shove Atip somewhere. I've had that happen. And it's like, okay. So here's here's what you why you really first of all it's bad manners rate. But then also we Dantley twenty five minutes sets. So if at the end of twenty five minutes, you're going to be grabbing dancer, you're grabbing sweaty dancer. So you probably don't want to do that. I had a guy once run his hand on my belly. And it was like it was at the end of my set, and he just ran his hand on my belly. And I was like I was looking at him. And he was kind of like, oh, God that was a mistake. Dude. Like, I'm slimy by the end of my. Interesting throw that on social media that drag queens drank weeds, tend to be very combative on social media here in Chicago, at least, I don't know about other cities. But. And I'm sure they are they sure they are. But and there were there were tacking other drag queens who don't make eye contact when a fan tips, the Madala you better make eye contact with those people who are giving you a dollar because you do Dazer of your respect. Yeah. And I was like, I I'm always people person. And I'm always making eye contact with people. But I also understand, you know, as a performer you want to focus on the performance not grabbing dollar for somebody because otherwise the performance just looks like somebody getting money out of an ATM. Yeah. You know, very exciting. And the irony is all these people were the ICS most customer unfriendly people, I know talking about the irony of how they see other people being very cold and hostile, and you know, and I noticed this in dance communities tend to be very supportive of each other. Whereas. Noticed not in the drag king seen when it was big here in Chicago. But recently with drag Queen scene, they tend to always look for flaws or ways to call out each other to try to get each other's gigs. Yeah. Well, I mean some of that does happen in belly dance. Like, we actually so I don't know if I should talk about this or not. But there was a gig that was stolen from another like a group that had had a gig for like over ten years, and like a restaurant or something and another group just came in and stole it from them billions world. Yeah. So it happens and Billy dance. But we do try to be supportive of each other's. There's always going to be about Apple's people who like undercut and stuff like that. Which I'm like, why would you be so stupid as to go to someone and be like, I'll do it for less money. I'm like, okay. I guess, but that's seems like really poor planning other people put in the work. Well, they've already so I just have to show up now. So wind up for more money, though. Come in. And be like, oh, well, I'm so much better. You're going to have to pay me this much more and order to dance here because I'm going to give you a better show. It's like a hermit crab that moves from a bigger show into a little one just off the other, right? It's like, you're just hurting yourself. You're making less money. This makes no sense. Yeah. It doesn't make any sense to me at all. So you went to see too easy to for people that don't know it is the Chicago comic and something entertainment entertainment expo. Yes. So it's you know, it's all the comic book stuff. It's all the nerd stuff. It's kind of like Khan, but a little bit smaller. Right. Yeah. What did you see this weekend? What was the hot thing? So you dress ask not to address it. Of course. I'm the huge nerd, so of course, I had to dress up. So I dressed as a Steph Lord, not a specific wine. I just have like Seth style gyros. And so I went casually hanging there. They're just around, you know. So I I went into that. And it was actually because I had a choice between Kylo Ren. And the Seth Lord, and I actually chose the Lord because it has more layers, and then I didn't have to actually bring a coat do to Mike. I'll just go around on the and my robes, and it'll be fine. So yeah, I went to see two to one of my friends, Don and Michi they were on a panel together about Asian representation in comics. So I went to their panel, which was really great. And then I just kind of walked the floor hung out with some friends. I bought a bunch of cool stuff so toys or no like what do they call them? No, no, no. I try not to get that kind of stuff because then I would get into collectible like black hole, and I'd never escape from all the stuff in my apartment, but I bought shirts. And I bought a pen one of the pens that I bought says weird and shy which is like perfect for me. Because I'm we're in shy. So then there was another pain. I actually got to support another trans guy. So there was a pin that all the proceeds going towards them for their top surgery. Awesome. So I was like, of course, I'm going to buy the pen. Yeah. It was a lot of fun. I wanna thank you so much for command. The show is there then talking to us we should get into some strange. You guys heard about grimy grimy grimy is an American sex worker and the posted on Twitter a video of her in a toilet on an airplane. Licking the toilet seat is gone completely viral. It's going to be the name of the girl, they call themselves and. No, the name has grimy, and it's just flying Barscelona, and they have video as quote underneath and saying like, I've looked a lot of times day. But this was the first that made by Tung go now. Microbiologist? That's very frightening. Well, later fess up that they had cleaned the toilet before. This is kind of like the name is grimy. So that's one of the things they do. And you know, there's a lot of people that are really ended like toilets and sexual kind of way. And Sharon think they're doing this for the pobably specific client. I want you to Lincoln toilet five hundred dollars camera on life, set a bad idea. I mean. Toil actually the handle to the toilet to the bathroom is actually d'oeuvres you than the actual toilet seat itself or something. Well, I mean think about you know, so you're putting your rear end on the toilets, which you know, there's not going to be. I mean, you're not actually putting your butthole on the at least. I'd hope you we're putting a hole in the seat. But then you wipe yourself and so your hand comes into contact. And then you flush the seed flush the toilet. Yeah. The handle is going to be definitely more disgusting than the Sita's. But still I have bad news for anyone who keeps her toothbrush right next to their toilet. And every time you flesh, you're spraying aerosol of all that stuff into the air. And it's going to get all over your toothbrush all of your bathroom select the toilet. Well, maybe I mean, I don't recommend. Rinse my toothbrush before it's not gonna do anything to do anything the bacteria now so dip, peroxide. No, you should just close the toilet seat. Whenever you flesh. Oh. Delta off the poop goes down though. Well, you can check it later. Is it a danger though? Like, I mean, I'm just thinking of millennials of people people all over the world flushing toilets with lid open. And really is that dangerous. Well, I mean, if you're compromised, or if you're like, if you're already sick it can cause other problems. I mean, it's it's your own bacteria. And so like, you're probably going to be okay. Whenever you get like Rangers pooping. Yeah. So. Yeah. You don't know what bacteria they have? And so it could make you sick that way. So we have one of those electric toothbrushes, and we close the panel. And we also likes to disinfect that would work UV light guy that thing needs to be closed at all times. Now, the light and use the UV light. All right. Yes. Dear. The one that brought it up. Well. Thanks for ruining law. So with micro biology. You have like after I got my degree. I tell people that I'd have to make peace with a world again. Because it was like everywhere was I knew all the germs that were growing on everything. And so it was like I had two choices. I can either become a germaphobe not touch anything ever again. Or just be like, you know, what it hasn't killed me yet. I heard that actually using those hand sanitizer. Lotions is a bad idea. Yes. Not not always. So they're good. Like if you have nothing else, they're fine. But if you constantly use them, and drives your skin out. And so the barrier of your skin stops working the way that it's supposed to Europe the gym. And they have those things at the gym on the wall. It's better to wash your hands a sync with Sylvan WADA water than to use something like that. But if it's in a pinch like if you're like, I cannot get to open water. Absolutely go ahead and use a hand sanitizer. What would be a circumstance would need to sanitize your hands? But you're not near soap and water. Like, well, I mean, he's wiping your ass. Hot dog. And if you're at a festival or something like that they don't have festival. Yeah. Yeah. No. We're not going to be near any water. Eat one eight something with your hands. Then that's the if you've been writing the and you go to a festival, and you're gonna wanna put your hands over your food jazz handsome ties. I do we do. Yeah. Carrot with not always have it right now with I don't trust us. Yes. Well, also, go home and wash my hands. Now, there's a guy in Russia who tried to board a narrow plain and he did it naked at the Moscow's airport while shouting close make him less aero dynamic, technically true. But guess what you're inside of planes. Yeah, matter like man, Trump supporters are really going. He's trying to get into the cockpit. I thought it was very interesting. Everybody's excited about the the Mueller Muller. I'm sure how you pronounce it baller. This the reports became release it. Well, here's a couple of things we know even Trump admits to. You know, a lot of crimes and the major one being obstruction of Justice. I mean, yeah, it's been out over the open. He can't. I mean, it's like he's on Twitter like actually like actor. Yeah. I mean, he's that's what he's doing. He's obstructing Justice. And no one's called him on it. So I think we need to talk about is like here we have. We're not in dispute whether he did these crimes who are wanting Justice. And I think that's what we're talking about. Yeah. Like is he actually going to be like, we know he's done it? But he actually going to be prosecuted for it of you know, it'll probably eventually happen. The trust that the state of New York not foolish enough to let that go. Well, we'll see what happens. I I'm kinda just hoping job dead for anything. Doesn't want him to drop dead. Wanna see him, you know, answer for his crimes, and it's part of it is like, you know, he's really compromised so much of our our lives here in the United States that we can't allow somebody like him to get away with it. The the major issue and man that the Russian bots Republican bots are in full force on the internet and somebody just like it's really hard time to talk about politics with a fourteen year old like you. And I said, well, it's really hard to talk about politics with a three month old Twitter accounts. Yeah. The by created this account to start having these conversations with people about this stuff. So it's and part of it is like I'm not too worried about anonymous account. It's more like when people we know. Follow follow take that as news. And then they're legitimate person. Passing this garbage office news. Happen me out. I know that's the problem. Yeah. My my own parents actually are at least as far as I know there are Trump supporters. So and my I had to call my mother out on spreading fake news. Does your gender nonconformity sort of jive with them? They don't like it at all. Yeah. No, no. It's a hard place to be. Yeah. It is. They have been completely unsupportive. I mean, my my parents now call me Gabriel, but they were really resistant to it in the beginning. You know, my mother was you know, kind of live. Well, why didn't you talk to us about this? I and I'm like what's to talk about. You know, you how it is. Yeah. Because you're you're dragging name is also the name use in everyday life. No, I use Gabriel. That's my legal name. But my my last name is different. Okay. Yeah. So in terms of like. Comrades your stage name as dancer. Gabriel. Knocks is your state name as a trans king. And then as a trans guy Gabriel's also your name. Yep. I know it's confusing too many names. Chart. Probably don't have joined king name that separate from you know, everyday everyday. Yeah. I just I really actually the drag king name came first because I tried it out like I wanted, you know, like the whole I mean, a lot of trans people try drag before they actually transitioned, and so I had I had done that. I just really liked the name Gabriel. I was like well just go ahead and keep that in the same boat as you like throughout my life. I was was trying to create drag characters and personas and all that stuff and people are like, where's your gender identity analysis? Well, it's definitely very non binary. But it's more like these inventions these characters that have made I transition them to be more like me. So I could be more comfortable as myself. And so people like all the time. What's what's your drag stage? Name. What's your character? I'm like, I use the same name us. I was given. People go Faustine, feminizing and stuff. Yeah. But on the posers, Fausto, you know, and that necessarily their head, and I think sometimes it's really hard. If you're you know, when you decide to create that character, just be just a reflection of you. And you're very clear about that. That's just people. It's very difficult for for them to handle that. Yeah. I mean, I just I like the ability to be like, oh, well, I want to be come rod today. And I you know, I can be a little bit more feminine in that way, and do Dan's, and then I have Gabriel knocks where I can do burlesque and be like super masculine with burlesque and then dragging stuff whatever play the same Bill. What they come on later drag king. So the boy last show that I do I did do a belly dance thing. And then the burlesque thing, but I just use Gabriel knocks whenever I do that. Which is fine. There's there's been a part of me that's thought about dropping the name just because I don't really need it anymore. But it's like I have so much name recognition. You know, very gender ambiguous. Oh, you wanna talk about J K Rowling? This. This story has been beaten to death in a DVD of the latest movie that came out talked about Dumbledore and the other guy Grunwald, and they had a very passionate relationship or something intense sexual relationship. And so, you know, it stopping at ending the box that hasn't been in any of the movies. So people are always just like your Connie. Is that the right word? She's fading gay-baiting aiding. It's like you're saying this to to appeal to the gay people. But you're not like the straight people at something. They're not even going to pick up on right? Yeah. So it's like, you know, she she wants to ally. Cookies be like, hey, look, I have representation I have gay characters, but not actually put them on the screen or in the book or on, you know. And that's kind of kind of way gay-baiting is where it's like, you know, you're suggesting that these characters are gay, but you're not going to get the payoff. Chris Hemsworth bending over. Jenky heat last year because she'd like to couple of tweets that came from some trans exclusionary radical feminist. Yes, is J K Rowling a turf lead listeners once. Yeah, it's hard to say. I mean, she. Yeah. She's like some tweets that are from accounts that are turfs. It's hard to know whether she is aware that they're turfs or not in the UK right now. They're actually having a really hard time with trans rights, their gender recognition act is under fire. So they want basically trans people to be able to just go to the NHS and be like, hey, I'm trans can I get my gender marker change. And so the turfs are really really powerful in the UK. And so they're like, no, we don't want this. And so they're all inter fire and all these UK turfs started tweeting stuff about men in bathrooms. We're talking about trans women and bathrooms. China's kind of stoke that fear and JK ruling has liked a couple of those tweets about men can't have men in. She call it was caught on. And she responded that she was just kind of clumsy woman. And she didn't she unlike them. Yeah. So it's hard to say. I mean, she keeps liking them though. So she does. Yeah. There's been a couple of the turfs are really really sneaky with a lot of stuff and the thing. That's what the Turks. The Turks is viewed look at their literature. It's the same kind of same kind of bent as the conservative. Right. Well, they've allied allied in a weird way. And in many ways, kind of using the the turfs this series circuits for their own kind of agenda, and they're supporting and paying for some of the stuff just get a couple of, you know, crazy lesbians out there or his mostly lesbian sees actually a lot of them are straight women's okay. Especially in the UK. Okay. Turfs as being lesbians or something? The Michigan women's music. Okay. There's variability wanted to go in the first place booting. They're voting transpeople. Oh, well, that's good. I guess, but they're kind of not too that the word. They're the word on the street. They're fucking it up. Again, not surprised just move forward. People moving net flicks strangers things three the premier the trailer has become the most watched video Netflix channel. And well actually haven't seen it yet. It's not out yet. I haven't seen the trailer. It's fun. It's cool. The same thing monsters video, of course, you know, eighties references and games with their awkwardness. You know, and I just been to binge watch the whole LA Madeleine McCann 'cause I never paid attention in two thousand seven when this girl was kidnapped all of the news and stuff. But I'm just like what am I going to do about? You know what I mean? Portugal's Jon Benet Ramsey. Okay. Parents were used of ours. As other people were excuse. This was that. I mean, I was like how much juice does this story have to warrant eight hours smile of this. But actually, I have to tell you. I was like I was drawn within the first time. And it's the first diagram that showed like, we're the parents eight and went worthy kid was when the kid was stashed. I was just like this is amazing. And so it's. Active. That's netflix. Tune to science rope you in. It's kind of like, you know, stay up all night drinking during drugs. Sure. It's a lot of fun to the next day you're miserable and with net flex you wanna binge binge binge? The next day. You're like why did I do? I feel like I got many of the angles covered from that thing and no little bit better. But you know, really is disheartening just like how children are trafficked in this world one series. I'm really looking forward as the dark crystal age of resist. Okay. So I have a story. Story for you about Dr crystal that you're gonna flip for you for making my crystal harder. Yes. Still a couple of years ago. They actually had a competition in order to write the prequel book I entered that competition under my name. So if you go to crystals website, you'll find my name. Yeah. And so I submitted the story that I had they had guidelines and all that stuff. So I submitted the story and I didn't win obviously. But I did get editor's choice. Oh, Raj alleged plot. What was the in a nutshell? So it was about to geldings that are basically like trying to get the word out that the sketches are evil now because they they weren't evil in the beginning so divided right. Yeah. So there crystal. No it. Yeah. So they were like trying to get the word out about it. So for people not familiar with this. It's Jim Henson Stoner fantasy from the early. In a world where you had these godlike creatures. I don't remember the names. And then there were not the sketch series though, the mistakes mystics, yes. And the dark crystal cracked, forcing the godlike creatures into male and female versions of themselves. Well, not really it was they're kind of genderless sketchy is where they were the bird lake wins. And then the mystics were the ones that flew. One person used to be one and the end of the movie they rejoin, and I'm like, you know, this is a very advanced idea because it's basically it was like to always thought the sketch where female in the mystics were male. Thanks, very like, you know, sort of like women are evil men are good or whatever. But that the combined the genders you have these gender binary God's non binary gods. And there was the splitting of the gender is what caused heartache and. Yeah. Yeah. And so for a lot of trans people like the dark, crystal kinda like the never ending story and other films spoke to them because of that idea is this killed Jim had some now labyrinth when he was filming in the bog has on you. Wetsuit on you. And he developed Omonia from because it's a Christian scientist, Anna workaholic, he went to the hospital the very last second he needed to. And he was so nice. The cabdriver dropped him off a block away because he didn't want to inconvenience cabdriver walked to the hospital and collapsed in the emergency room floor and died later that day terrible. Yeah. But anyways, Jim Henson's vision lives on the dark crystal age of resistance. It's all going to be practical real life puppetry. The only thing they're going to use green screen to remove the puppeteers. So you're gonna see some hard core sketch sees Scott on action. Say that. Showing like in the trailers, the wearing this armor or something. It's just hilarious and wonderful. They bring the astrologer weird lady with the. What was her name? That words. It's relevant this movies around. It's really fantastic undecided for that the world's oldest and biggest Toronto source Raxit was discovered in nineteen ninety one. But it is now on display they need Scotty. And he's almost forty feet long weighed almost twenty thousand pounds ju- imagine. And so not only is longest won't be is also the oldest one they figure he's about thirty years old. And he saw a lot of action his life because he's got some broken ribs and some scars on his bone. So he probably got into some pretty heavy duty fights. That's awesome. I wonder how that compares to sue the t Rex we have here. Look. America's tyrants with small hands. Sorry. Home. Somebody about me. They have her in meters in Canada. No, she's twelve point three meters. Stands three point six meters tall. I don't think sue's very big. I don't think. T Rex's skeletons discovered they were the most complete, and you know, that they. Pronounce pursue, right? You're right. That'd change. What was it last year or something right because I don't know their gender, right? So sue us day them pronouns. Well, you know, we sort of do that with our dog Jesse. People are like this is really funny things like you're walking your dog. And they think your dog is female, or male, whatever. And there's just like oh. I'm like dog the dog doesn't have any gender identity, and you know, but then they all upset about transpeople. Please call me, you know, he him, and they're like, well, I don't know. I think of you as a girl you could call your car a girl. Give her car name and be cool with it. You could be cool at somebody change their name or change, their whatever gender identity. They want to present us, you know. And it's part of it is I think I think Alexandra billings said it best. It's not any that that causes a lot of hate that it seeing somebody pursuing their life and their dreams and here, you are not doing that. And it's really a hard built. It's a pill to take a little jealousy. As Mr. Bank says Mary Poppins now, it's jealousy. That like, oh, I can't be my authentic self. So I'm gonna make sure that no one else can be.

Rob & Akiva Need a Podcast #24: Millennial Bootcamp

"The key. Kiva needle. Yes. That is right, Robin. Akiva need a podcast episode number twenty four and here we are back again. And we're going to be learning Molyneaux slang millennial bootcamp here myself, and my co host for this wonderful podcast where we spin a wheel of ideas every single week that are submitted by you, the listener. And I do it with this man, you know, him. Well, and if you don't he is a man who I've been podcasting with for five years. Now, we podcast all of Seinfeld. We re watch every single episode. We even did a podcast about a whole season of curb your enthusiasm. And then we were stuck for what should we podcast about next? He also podcasts about football in his spare time, and then we decided to podcast about this very idea. And here we are on the twenty. Episode here is the man who is hopefully less and less hobbled every week, Akiva, wheels Winokur. Yeah. Now now that my broken foot is mostly healed. I'm mike. It's I I recovered too quickly. And now, my wife is like back to getting me to do stuff where I should have milked it for two more weeks thing, you should really just that intra once and then you can just play it hit it hit it. And also going to say the man who is recording his audio today. Akiva, Winokur why usually forget to record audio. No. But I forgot to ask you if you are. Oh, yes. Okay. Good. And so that is means that we will have a podcast for everybody. Here. Say are you a milk or are you a milkers with you have an injury? I think so I think I'm a milk or my my dad is is a big milk or my dad when if he has like a sniffles he's like in bed for twenty four hours. My mom's thank care for him. So I feel like I come from lustrous line of milkers. My dad was Amilkar his his his father's actually pretty tough his father like. Was that a brain surgery and working again two weeks later this year? So yeah. And he's almost ninety. So we might be this might be the second generation milk. My wife is a milk her. But she has no tolerance for me being a milk or not that I'm even that much of a milk, but milk a recognize milk. Also, I like she knows that you're faking. But also people said like, hey, you're does your wife think that you fake reading your foot or you're broke your foot on purpose that she didn't? She doesn't think I'm smart enough or or competent enough to do that. But I think now she she realizes like he's he had us two weeks. Now, he's back to work, and she's making me do stuff around the house. Right. I can be sick or injured for about an hour. And then my wife. Oh my God. You are such a baby. Oh my God. So it doesn't last long. Yeah. So I hear okay. I think. The key. Like, if I didn't have an x Ray, I do think that like proof people would've assumed I was saying, but also one dumb thing. I did is I went out this week without my crutches people like you're all better. Like, no can't use the excuse interests shoot one more week. I could have been on my crushes, and it would work. So that was a big mistake of me TV last week. Rene Twenty-three are Robin Akiva smarter than an average listener. And I thought people overall like jeopardy people realized jeopardy a lot of people said put it straight back on the wheel a lot of people like pitching themselves or ideas for who could be our next third. I do think at some point. We will see jeopardy again. Okay. All right. But not today because today we are going to learn about everything that millennials are talking about. So what if they're talking about jeopardy? What if millennials only care about jeopardy? We'll find out what we're gonna find out here today. Now, some people may not know this kiva is actually technically. A millennial. So this should be nothing new for Akiva. But maybe this will be a new stuff for me. I do like to stay on top of what everybody is talking about. And we have a great correspondent now without controversy that he is here to be our millennial correspondent, please welcome in great friend of rob has a podcast star of the wand off and more the great fill t Phil TS here. A what is Gucci my guys? How's it going? I'm here with my two dads. And I'm ready to talk some Eleni culture. Did you know there was a show called my two dads? I should that go fishing up right now. No is there three seasons of that of my dad's. Pretty sure there is of level. Yeah. But the premise I think there was a girl and that I think that her mom was promiscuous. And then I think that she was dating guys. And then she died. I think that that's the Szucs that's a little dark the little dark. They they don't really give you a lot of the back story. I think they probably made about us the star of the show Paul Reiser, Paul Reiser. Yeah. My my two dads and the plot was that the series begins after MARCY Bradford, the mother of twelve year old in the coal bread for has died. A lot of death in these sitcoms and the two men who had competed for Marci's affection during the summer of nineteen seventy four. So I think there's a paternity issue here. Also, so never solved never say engines, sixty episodes. So that's save that for the fishbowl segment later on my dad's with Paul Reiser. And then another. Like, George Michael looking guy, filthy said what's Gucci? And I also think it's important during the podcast. He lets us know like can we as a thirty five and forty year old white dudes? Can we get away with saying the things that he is built films? You have to there's something that we should. We were not allowed to be saying you tell us, no. As four boys. Home point of the program. Gonna be cancelled Phil. Yeah. No hash cancel you can't be hashtag canceled. So that's why you have me here today to explain the stuff to you, very careful, and I know what I'm going to tread carefully myself. Okay. Because. My ritual idea was actually to, you know, go back and find the history of all the all these sort of words butts. I figured that. You know, like, you guys know most of the stuff already, you know, a T is what shade is. Okay. I. I don't want to. I don't want to explain the ones that you know. So I kind of I- I- Molyneaux boot camp is probably a little misleading because I'm probably going to be skewing more generation as well on hold on. This is an audible spill when older you I think that's the first question. On saying is that okay? I'm a ninety four baby. And not as technically I'm technically right on the line of jen's e and millennial so. I like desperately trying to cling to my youth. Like, I have my quarter life crisis coming up. I'm twenty actually who lives hundred that's crazy. But I I'm dead. I don't know could be going the other way. This could be your midlife crisis is true. Thank god. Okay. Just kidding. See? This is sorry. This is the type of dark millennial humor that I was going to get to. But I'm just saying that you know, it might be. I just I want supplies you. I wanted to be a learning experience for both of you. Because I feel like rob is pretty woke already. I mean, he's he's mislead locus Halicki. Yeah. No about rent-free living in people's heads. So that he was who that's start every episode who's who's living finger at filthy who's living rent-free in my head. Oh, I was going to be asked this question to and I still didn't I don't know probably like. Religious like, no one training. I got Smolensk boot cab. If anything it's little pomp low baby Lausanne those. I wasn't even born when Jerrell was a rapper. Yeah. Do you think I could be doing? I could be a little Keady. That'd be my rap name. Yeah. No. I like to your sister's idea of young Santa Claus. I thought that was pretty fire. Oh, my sisters were roast of me on Twitter. That's what you're drunk Santa. Phil. Why does so many rappers have the prefix Lil is is it like a being a night, and you get like a, sir? Or is that like that the grew up, and then they just all had a similar nickname. Well, rob when you are rapper you start really really young, right, right? Oh, it's just like mostly a literal thing. I think also it's just like the formula to being a rapper. These days is like so like all you do is you put loan your name that you get a million face TAT's. And then you do some bad things and Takashi like to kosh. He's with his protection, which is going to be amazing. No one's ever gonna find that guy. I mean, I can't I can't like I can't cosign anything to 'cause she does both ways now because you know, he's a snitch now. So like, I can't no sign that. But also, he's a bad, dude. So I sign that either. So to Takashi six nine is cancelled guys ear to here. I I'm sorry cost. You your first canceling people. If Phil Tiv really thinks I am a millennial or not because it's a big debate. Since the beginning of time is a key because I'm really on the border where I could be like, whatever Rob's Trans-translation is or a millennial. I don't know. Words guys. None of this even matter. Nothing matters. Nick. You know, dark millennial humor. Okay. Well, Phil just wanted to ask you, and you address this a little bit. But should we be as focused on millennials right now or are millennials not that they're over? But our millennials on the way out and his jen's E ON the way in. For me personally. Like, I said before like, I'm I'm kind of like skewing away from the millennial culture because I want to be young forever. So I gotta keep up on Twitter. I got I gotta read, you know, fricking Twitter headlines and make sure I'm on my stuff. Otherwise, I'm going to be old. And that is terrifying. It is terrifying. Trust guys who have six kids. We don't want to discount them Eleni. All's totally because we do have more millennials. Listen to this podcast, then people from jen's e. Yeah. Agreed. But that's that's that's why I figured it would be a better learning experience for everybody. If we skewed a little more jen's Zad attacks that because you're you say that because you're a millennial because you're a Canadian. Look, that's what we're here to find out. Also, like pretty offended. You didn't ask me if I was a milk earlier. Like, I thought we were going to get into some Canadian milk bag talk nets. We find. Yeah. East coast. Does I don't here in beautiful British Columbia? We do not have milk bag. Oh, so you're like Vancouver guy. No, this is no I live in absolute isolation. Northern canada. It's like very small town. It's very cold here, and it sucks. Why does I like when you say west side of Canada who is like the who is the Canadian biggie versus the Canadian to pock was there. Westside rip. I don't wanna talk about like. Okay. Smell like Canadian Canadian rap is. So I mean, besides obviously, the go drizzly Drake, but he's calls, right? Like, there's no like prominent than like mainstream Vancouver rappers. So there's no Couva rappers Vancouver rap. Game or come the main Vancouver. Yeah. You gotta you gotta you know. That's that's the goal right now is to you know, takeover vents be the biggest name van city. Right. So okay. Somebody's got. All right. Phil. Did I blow playing your intro package? Oh, no, no. I didn't know how to segue into it either. So all right. So we're gonna get into our millennial bootcamp had some banter with Phil. But now it's time to get down to brass tacks. So here to kick off our Molyneaux bootcamp. Let's welcome Phil Tae presentation. Laura. Number one reason parents can't get through to their children is that they can't communicate effectively the art on also. Again sheets. This one. Introducing. The break. He'll spin podcast. I guaranteed to learn the ins and outs. And speaking to the younger generation millennial. Boot camp is created by a guy who knows that thing or two about talking shit. I bet listened fan. I've been in the lab cooking up all God. Trust me on this one. I bet I know my shit. I know cat bless. Bless. Don't believe it. Listen to this testimony from are satisfied customers with lineal bootcamp perfect twenty-five different. He'll tricks and commits teenagers. Thanks, still t-. Thank Phil millennial can't tie now know how to effectively with other millennials. Hey. Millennial bootcamp my podcast is called pilot season. Now, it's called pilot season with Kinsey fake. Yes. To peace Harambee. So what are you waiting for go and get it and try millennial today? Toby peace. Not you can. Over the years. Arkadi? That goes on for ten more minutes. I'm so sorry. I didn't I didn't know Michael was going to shamelessly plug himself. I don't know about you one Michael Clark canceled cut that out of the podcast come on. Yeah. Michael Clark has a lot to worry about this. I give him a pass. Why Michael Clark was in Jupiter in January? I wanna know number number two. I rob. I think filthy jazz officially put in more work to the podcast than we have. I think so a lot of work the new pin there, also no no nuke dog. I honestly I was gonna ask dog to hold my hand on the podcast. I'm so jealous of Jessica as we I am terrified right now. But it's fine. I don't need Randy knew who needs Randy nubile. All right, guys. We're the other voices. Can you can you tell us like who are the other people on that? Okay. One is my friend DARA one was Jenny autumn. And one was Michael Clark. Customers. I've I've I've thoroughly educated all of them on Molyneaux culture. So and definitely not. So we are well into this. And we haven't gotten into any millennial talk yet. So let's give the people what they're here for fill the mail vaca-. Sorry later. Later. Point. So I have my own wheel. Oh my God. I thought the medically. This would be a fun way to choose where we start because I believe in destiny. So I'm going to click it literally for me because no one else could see it or hear it. All right. So we are starting at Esco and escaped. It now, Robin, Akiva, when you hear the words and escaped it, what is the first thing that comes to you. Hits your ear. What do you think? It means. I think it's like, it's let's go, and let's get it. Okay. Very perceptive rub seeing because that's exactly what it is. Esco on us get it is a popularized phrase. That was I made prominent by rapper Lil pump. And I'd like to stay just. In general, like little pump is probably the best influence on your young child. As like as far as the the rappers are concerned like he hasn't. He hasn't been involved in like any real like a mess like he does in Caroni face tattoos. Little pump have wilpon has a lot of faith. He's got a frowny face. Checking out now. Some pictures. So I feel like that. That's is you know, that's it. But also someone different. He will. Encourage your child to drop out of school. But his his album is called Harvard drop-out within like Harvard spelt with an EAS so any brags about not being able to read. But anyways Esco on a skit it. The as are ease in Harvard. No, it's not Herbert. It's Harvard though. Okay. Yeah. It's a lot. So. Yeah. So it's basically just an exclamation like an exclamation or a phrase of enthusiasm to express enthusiasm and. Yeah. Okay. I actually we hold on let want to get this. So can can you tell us that? Is it always Esco n s get it? Or is can you use one or the other without the other? Okay. So scat, it is the main part of it the finger about I think because of the hash because the internet it has transformed into Esco and his get it as like an ironic thing to say, I guess like. A lots of people will say a skull. And like, let's go let us go. And let us get it just because it's so absurd that that's just how. You know language, transforms these days, you know, you can say Esco Esco doesn't sound as good as just escaped by itself. So plus. I think paired together they are the best, and I I get away with saying Esco scattered or no absolutely this. Yes. This is I'm I'm giving you the Esco skit card. I don't know if I'm calling. Well, you know, what I am qualified. Vancouver. Okay. So there are different spellings the song by little pump is called Escott it, but it spelt E S S key K E T IT. Okay. Which doesn't that says that's a skied it? Right. But that's how the song is spelt. So it's very very confusing. But. Like reading. So he's not we probably shouldn't take his spelling advice. Go to drop reading. Okay. Phil should Akiva. And I both be tweeting. These terms without context during the recording of this podcast one thousand percent one hundred hundred with the with their red emoji. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So what would be the tweet s Esco and escaped it. Yeah. We wanna see what the response is to my twins. You tweet us go and tweet us, and we'll see see what numbers I'm Esco your Esco. I'm esque Esco without a schedule. We're going to think that I have been hacked. Okay. Well, sat on your phone. Maybe weird. Just both tweet it. Well. And then a kiva can to randomly tweet the next one. Okay. Okay. So Esco and. Okay. All right. So that's with a k ES KO A N D E S K E DDAT. But but but but I bet nitty gritty also wrote a song called the scat. It. Oh, nitty gritty I have never heard of nitty-gritty. Okay. Maybe he's he's maybe a little pump ultra vulture because he's just stealing scattered gritty. Oh, yeah. But that's a little nicer. He can't be a culture vulture. Yeah. Exactly exact- tweet this out and see what the responses are. Okay. Oh, it's going to be your biggest we'd ever think. Okay. We'll say all right. Phil anything else on SCO and scat it. Nope. Not not here. Did you guys have any other questions about Esco in a skit we no? Yeah. Do you think that go onto the next big brother? Twenty-one anybody will repeatedly just yell out Esco all summer long. I hope so I hope I hope diehards diehards. Listen to our hap- are going to be doing that. Now, I really hope thing. Well, there's diehards. And then there's people listen to this. I'm not sure if if they're going to be I guess. Is there a lot of crossover then I mean across over so a hundred dollars. Everybody gets in the house, and then and then quotes us on on. Right. Right. Okay. So are you going back to your wheel? Yes. Spin the wheel fill. Okay. That's what we do on the show the wheel. Okay. Here it smarter. All right. This one is drip, drip, drip, drip. What he what? What do? You think? Drip means. Can you give us use it in a sentence? I have. Yeah. Like, okay. So I I mean not to quote myself about my Caitlyn Herman song. But I said she's feeling the drip tree like locked would go in for a swim. What does that Miehling, drip? I we had a leak in the house. That's called the plumber. As like, hey, I'm feeling the drip. It's it's and from the sink and he came over unannounced walked right into my house. My daughter threw him out of the house physically my thirteen year old daughter. It was very strange. It was a whole all incident. Why? Because she thought that he was an intruder. Well, he came to the neighbor's house like walked into see it, and he wasn't supposed to be there and he walked in without knocking, and she's very mad and she pushed him out of the house. It was very funny. Politics. He had too much drip. That's why that he was just able to walk into your house on announced. So he had the drip, not the not the. Yes, okay. Precisely. Yes. Like, yes. Or is that over that could be over? Well, that might be open. We might have ended. Its now that we say we say, yes. Weans area last. Yeah. No, yes. King is definitely. Yes. King queen. Yes, anybody everybody's royalty? So dread. We do we Hebrew on this guy. Yes. Is that real? Ken mauka? Yeah. That's what we that's what we see. Now. We're learning our teaching each other. Okay. So drip is just basically a synonym for swag concert derivative of the word, exactly style. Your presence. Your drip, like like, can we also be like like because jewelry is referred to ice or you know. That's what I call. It. Your risk this frozen. You know, then hot at citgo. Right. If you're frozen and exactly Esco and get it. And your wrist is frozen. You start dripping everywhere. You know, there's so much ice you just dripping. So basically, that's what drip is I have an example here. It's taken from the song drip, too hard by Ghana and low baby. It's the line is Drake's hard stand to close you might f round and drown off this wave which is implying that his swag is so overwhelming that you might actually die. Yeah. Say f around there's these say the F word. No, he says the effort, but I'm just trying to be. Good later because I get super passionate about this culture saying. Yeah. Famously. Yeah. Hundred percent. So sell. I don't I still don't know if I could use them the sentence. Rob. Verb or an adjective. Here's the thing. It's both like you can drip on someone. Not anymore. Oh, okay. No. And then you know, and you could also just have drip. So. Swag. Cool people. Is that what it is? Yeah. Basically, it's interchangeable with soi is this what I'm say. Like, you know, like the word for swag changes. Every cell often just the current because you said Caitlyn is feeling the drip of so. Caitlyn? But but you said that that was that was your feeling feeling feeling the. She's feeling the Jewish feeling my swag. And and then more like Waterworld word play with the swimming thing. Give us an example famous person. Pop culture has got the drip right now. Who's around who's dripping Rippin? Who's drip, drip? There's this. There's this guy right now called the blue face. He's. That's that's Will Smith. Want? You like old people pop culture. Hold on. Let me. Tank. Oh boy. I don't know most Nala most Sala have the drip. I don't know. I'm trying to think of an athlete that has like mostly NBA players would have honest got right now. Yeah. Like like spicy PASCAL Siaka m- has what Rick drip, even though he's better than than PASCAL. This is not drip, everyone. Yeah. Raptors team as a drip. Okay. Especially Lin sanity. That's he's got incredible drip right now. Sure insanity. Does not have the drip. You. This twenty eleven. I agree. Basketball. So he doesn't know that Lynn is back. He's back. We're gonna sort of. He's on the raptor on the Knicks. He would not be. Okay. The only reason I know exists because he's on the is the only Canadian team. So that's the only reason I anyway, fill could a big brother, contesting, go into the house this summer and profess themselves to be drippy d- would that be would that be good move? Yes. No that that's that is the move. I I am. Oh that is so drippy. Esco? Yeah. Esco that's a ding. I did go onto the next one. Sure. Not right. Let me spin the wheel. Okay. We have any of these. As you spend we have eight of them. Yeah. So there's like six more. So okay yet. Oh, there's a test. All right. So our next word is unit. Yeats I gotta commute a question can explain what yeat is. And I'm like, yeah. I don't know what it is yet. Okay. Is is yeat. I'm gonna guess is it similar to having heat. No, no, no, not necessarily. It's more of. Okay. Keep guess for yeat. I I really don't have a good guess is it like yes, also eat like like eat. We're going to the store. You're close with your closer than go to store. I don't have a hundred dollars. Good examples. Yeah. This test. I would have accepted that as an answer. He'd is just an exclamation of excitement or victory. It was very popular when it was first popularized by vines lavas like twenty fourteen but it's still very very in the mix right now. What's the origin story? Okay. So. When a per-. Okay. So on vine people would make videos of themselves flipping water. Seen that before. Right couch on the right side. Okay. Yeah. And then and then Denzel Curry's ultimate plays. And it's like the one the one then. Yeah. Okay. So basically in a seller of getting a water bottle to stand up. Right. You yell yeat? So that's the thing. But why is yes? Combined with something else. I believe so. Yeah. It's it's it's just. It's a re-. It's regional I don't remember where it's from what obvious on the urban dictionary. Where does he eat come from? Yeah. Yeah. Yeat? And can we get away with saying eat? It always depends on context, obviously, you can get away with sing eat as long as you use it. You can keep I give you Persians say all of these words as long as you use them in the proper context. Okay. Saying you can't just be saying like, and then like, you know, don't do anything. Cool. You have to do something cool and then yell eat. You can't you know, I've never done who'll though. Yeah. Leg gave me like some. Yeah. If you figure that out then you can say heat. But until then, I guess, yeah. So. It's it's it's synonymous with like, you know, when you when you shoot like a like a piece of paper and the garbage can say Kobe or like swish, you know, it's like. You know, it's like it's like that kind of when we were when we were kids. We would like go to the urinal in like third grade. And I don't know why. But my friend was always Bill Cartwright when he was like peeing from like eight feet away from the urinal Bill car was bad shooter. I don't know why. He was Bill car. Right. I had to be Craig Hodges. It was a good through punch. Maybe that was something that Bill Cartwright would do. And he knew the story. It is possible. Maybe we'll cut right? Yeah. I don't know who's famous peeling eight feet away from the urine away. Hey, watch this Bill Cartwright right right now. Yeah, we can make a Bill Carr. Right. That Bill right on the week. Yeah. Tell about my elementary school for an Elliott us to do that. All right. So so we don't know that we don't really know the origin of year. Well, yeah, the Arjun is fine. But we don't know the like, the Genesis of the Genesis of it, right? Almost all these come from hip. Hop culture, though, almost everywhere that gets popular right. Yeah. Because you know, like re very recently. You know, hip hop has surpassed rock and roll as the most listened to mainstream genre of music. So I just think that like. Along with it came all of these, you know, slang terms. So and it's just. Because you know, the people that hang it on the internet are the ones that rap music is four so. That's just how that works. Okay. All right. So we yeat we've done it. Three millennial terms are now vocabulary during the books. Maybe it'll give us a term for that. What's next been that wheel? I'm very proud of you guys. Hold on. Here we go. You think that tonight somebody could win it asker, and then get up to the microphone yeat Christian bale wins hundred percent, who's the least likely to say he'd is it the dude from the Melissa McCarthy movie the British dude. I don't think he's gonna be dropping in the. I think Emma stone might say she might say, you're right. I don't know the difference. We should do a whole nother podcast where you tells them it's been like, Emma stone. Emma, Watson, Emma Roberts. I don't know any of that. Chris podcasts that could be like the undercard. Yeah. Who explaining the Emma's Emma from WWE? I don't know any of them. I would what came up on the wheel filty. Okay. Our next word is plug. Oh. What is the plug? I don't know. I always thought it's like at the end of the podcast. Let's see. I don't know. I don't want to get myself into trouble and guests could you use it in context? Phil. Yeah. Sure. Okay. So. Say if I were. A high school student. You know? And I was selling gummy bears to other high school students. And you were plus. I would I would be the gummy bear plug also a dealer. Okay. So who's? Who's got the connect now. It's just a plug. Yes. There you go. You made you Mering sore. We right. No. You're absolutely correct. That's great. Okay. We nailed it. So the plug is the supplier of something of. Yeah, I've anything, you know, not necessarily where you know, not necessarily what you're thinking. But you know, what am I thinking gummy bears? Yeah. No. That's what I'm saying coming. There's okay. Can you give us? Can you give us some other sentences with this? So we're we use it correctly. I mean. Yeah, I guess so you know, like, oh, hey, I need gummy bears. The you know the plug. Oh, great sense. Explain it with the vampire, you gave ready. Wow. I had. Like, we need money.

You looking after you have your Missy for that. I mean, I don't know. I thought she was very thorough. It was attractive to me. I don't know. All right. So I have landed on ops Opie s. Okay. This is a tricky one. That's like a a measurement of a baseball player. Right. Yeah. On base, plus slugging. That's what all the kids are talking millennial baseball fans. And then all the old baseball fans. Like, I don't care about your millennials, right? Tell me your RBI's. That's all I need to know. Wow. This is this is this is all going so far we've been talking about baseball with millennials. I don't think so I really the only talk east sports, you know, there's only on twitch twitch dot TV watching league of legends. So we learn more about e sports and jewel, honestly on this jewel where we've learned juuling juuling Malayan still care about jewel. I think. Ju that's all they do labels just jewel day. They don't eat or or the law, and they just drooled we're not talking about the the Alaskan recording artists that lived in. Nobody cares mental like eight hours. I'm talking about juuling with to us. Oh, yeah. Jerome. I need a remedial. Vaping. No, no. It's not sure. Ruling. Okay, juuling is its own thing. Okay. But that's the company Kleenex is already. Not cool. No, it doesn't matter. Yeah. But that's that's they Bram truest cooling vaping. Not craving is not cool juuling only when we get into juuling. What Robin Akiva get like go super hard into juuling for next week's what's juuling when you have so much ice on your wrist that it's frozen had is trip in. Yes. Exactly. Now, you're getting it. Now, you're getting juuling so hard that you drip. Yes. Hundred get it. Yeah. This is so fun. Okay. So what is what what's juuling jewel? It's it's like, it's it is. It's vaping. But you don't call it vaping. You call it juuling. That's what's important vaping is over saying his over. You're not vaping your juuling. Yeah. Now that I've told you that then jurors going under today. So that was the secret. Now, I don't know kids are anti sponsor us. They're going to pay us not to talk about them. I think now there is that what you're saying. Okay. Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying. We will accept anti sponsors, by the way. Rob. If someone wants to pay us, the like, you know, be down on them because that'd be fine. Right. Like they're gonna they're gonna pay us to not talk about them. We're not blackmailing people. Right. No. They're just like, hey, just do me a favor and never mentioned never never mentioned. But we're we're not going out the sponsors Stanley. Hey, give us money, or we'll talk about that would be like a legal that would be there'd be a sting and we'd get arrested. Yeah. No, God forbid, their nap boys cannot be bought, and I can definitely, but we didn't say that. We're not going to we'll sell this whole thing Gimblett style for a lot less than two hundred million which just we're just not. We're not blackmailing advertise, and we'll be so drip. We would we would be dripping dripping. You will be drip in. Yeah. You can't say so dread. We say, you how trades. What a mess what a mess. Drip. Yeah. So drip. That's oh, gee, shuttering just thinking of that. Okay. Give everyone gets a twenty on the test. That's teachers will I look guys. Okay. I'm I'm I've never claimed to be an educator. Like, I am the last person that should be teaching anybody anything, and this is probably my best subject, and this is not going. Well. But it's fine. It's your best subject in school was like millennials culture. Yeah. Like, my thesis was on it and stuff. So. What was the term? We were talking about right now that we got into jewel. I have. No well. Curious about jewel. So you know to clarify a little bit. If a what's the what's the topic at hand here. It's ops. Remember otto? Yeah. Making jokes. And I was like this is. Ups. So ops. See they're often mistake in for you know, cops because it rhymes. That's not what it is. Just short for the opposition. You know, you're right. It's basically my enemy not an with haters. Yeah. Exactly. So you know, like. My Zampa that I wrote here is and I'm reading this in the style of a millennial. Tweet structure. So it's my soccer coach good game. Go shake hands with the other team me, na fam-. We don't mess with ops. Right. So is it opponents or is it straight haters? This was a bad week for Robin akitas ops. Because obviously, we were always another episode of crush. And then, you know, the the leader of of our enemy team got busted like so the ops. Who are oppa who are capable that? Leave us one-star reviews on tunes bigtime ops. Yeah. Those guys are ups. Yeah. The people that I'm trying to think who are major ups. Missy Missy is your calm cool. I think with Missy. We're scat it. I got that. Right. And then I don't know who else I guess Chester is kinda my op are there any other wheel podcasts that spin a wheel of ideas. Oh, if somebody. Ripped off soft. That would be our biggest op I think really have to go hard after them. Yeah. We'd be like communist get it. Trying to get you guys nailed this one. You got to have this got this. We know we know about haters. We know about haters. You're not are up your what's the opposite of an ops. Filtering your that the opposite of the ops. Hoof fam- guessed it, your FAM or FAM. But you know, but where your dad's you said dad's fan is dad, right? Okay. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. I know. Okay. All right. Well, spin the wheel. You gotta go. Okay. We got a couple more here. Let me spin. Okay. The next term is juuling right now. I wish I could I could use a jewel. I'm stressed. Uh-huh. So the next term is no cap. No cat. And no cap is that like when you go to a baseball game, and you get a bottle of water, and they give it to you. No cap, then we throw it on the. Frustrating because you can't like flip it and have it stand up. Right. I'm not going to throw it at our players. I'm gonna throw it at the ops. Emoto it's baseball. But it's more like the Padre sign Manny Machado for three hundred dollars. Because there's no cap in baseball. Right. He has and he has really good ops. Should ops. But then the Mets they have a cap Bernie Madoff, right? Phillies. This is just yeah. Okay. No. We're great skull met. Esco Mets boy. Oh, boy, Israel most popular episode. Rob. I don't know. Ops out there. There's got to be ops gonna come out of the woodwork. There will be ups, we don't mess up. So it doesn't matter. They can go do whatever they want. So no cap is basically, no lie. Capping is lying. So. Like. For telling the truth has run out. If there's no cap that means there's no cap to your ability to tell the truth. Oh, no cap is comes from you have no capacity to tell the truth. Or as I like shorthand way to remember an SAT word. I guess so right. I don't know. I I don't make this stuff up. I'm just delivering the news to you. Okay. I'm a mere messenger. Amir. He's. Guess even heard from an while. Oh boy. Yeah. That's that one. No cap, basically means that they're not lying or capping like these serious serious so capping so a cap is ally. Yes, okay. No cap is not lying. I'm no cap. I'm being truthful. Yes. No cap to my aunt got it. Okay. God. Okay. Using like, hey, there is no cap to my dropbox storage account. No, no, no. You can't use it. Like, that's you're owning it you're only wires jen's e or are they using Google Drive or something else. They're into dropbox. No, okay. You know, what guys you actually can't say, no capital? We're taking it away say it, you can't say no cap, I'm taking back. We don't have enough rip to say. That's what you're saying. That's what you're saying. Are you being serious? No cap. No camp. Rob. You can't say no cab. No cap. Well, why we we're we're not getting it. No, you're getting it. But you're ruining it. So you can't have that one. Okay. Okay. For moving on. Okay. We're letting you down fill. Yeah. I'm proud of you guys are what don't worry, it's fine. If anything, it's my fault, right? 'cause I'm I'm being a bad teacher. Yeah. No. I get it. No, it helps to talk it out. So. Next word is bust down bus down. Yeah. Like, I'm gonna bus down to Philly from New York. The bus. No not. That's no, okay. No, okay. So bus down is actually see I should have done these in order because both down is like pretty relative to drip bus down is. Refers to the amount of diamonds in your jewelry. Okay. So. Are killing the diamond industry, and they don't care about. I just read that district going down because the millennials just read that today. Okay. Well. There. I think there are enough ignorant rappers that will just by keeping the diamond industry of flow. You're saying. I agree with that one hundred percent the one from Canada from your neck of the woods like the little kid who is the rapper. Also a girl. About military little tenure. Girl that was like, you know, like an elaborate Gainey like flex like pretty hard for mom rented, a Lamborghini. And there was like all the houses. Mom was like showing for real estate. Trying to buy a sweet new pad, and like, that's what his mom. Yeah. That's what mom so. So. Bus B U S D W N is one word. No, it's bust down down with. Yeah. Jewelry for birthday. So I was like now, you're married. You're all bus down. Now. Right. That say that she bus down. Yes. Yes. Yes. So what I'm talking about? Yeah. Bus down is is means you have a lot of diamonds. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. It's like usually used as a descriptive word for watch. These your bust out the opposite of a bus down. Watch would be like Jane. Like like, I watch with no diamonds in it. But it's still really expensive now posted a picture to our one of our ops. Jaakko Willink of my of my poor patrol. How he's a is. He's my. My main up. Like, it's common. He's he's up. So so is that an my bus down because I have a PJ masks watch. Bus bus down is your you're the opposite of bus down your you're bust up. Mostly down as plain, Jane plain, Jane. Oh, jane. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Right area. Go now. Now, you're getting it watch hashtag watch education. This is great. Yes. And Akiva, Manny Machado might have good ups, but don't expect him to bus down the line at all. That's that's not bad. Although I feel like Manny Machado probably is doing pretty well with bling with like actually bussing down right now. Yes, he's guy. He ends. Not. You can't be. Oh, jesus. Okay. So we asked what part of speech is it. And I thought you said it was everything. So you say you have to have a noun you can have drip. But you can't be drip. If that makes sense they said. In when I was a teacher and the teacher, and I was English teacher. Still like, hey, teach math just be one day ahead of the class. And then they would ask me questions. I'm like, oh, I don't know. What is going on right now? Why can I be dripping? But I can't be drip. Yeah. It's just it's just how it is. Rob. I just like why why in the English language? Do we say? I don't know some somebody who knows English better than me could give an example here, but language is language. How work right? Okay. Okay. All right. We got we got two more here. Two more two more guy to more. Is this a bus down is only referring to diamonds like it's not like anything else. That's nice like mostly. Filthy. You you really helped make to keep need a podcast bus down this week. Yeah. I see. Okay. So. The second meeting the bus down guys there's but I just didn't really wanna get into it. 'cause it's. You know, it's not it's not the nicest thing to say about somebody. What is it? What is it? It's fine. That you can't like a word and then tell us, oh, there's an alternate. Meaning, but I won't tell you what we accidentally put our foot NAR mouth sometime. Well, that's why you know, you have you have to context very important. He's only us talking about watch. Because if you use it when you talk about like a person, it's not very nice, you know. Also doesn't make sense doesn't if it means that my watch is nice and full of diamonds wise it bad for a person. Okay. So that's that's the person that's dated that's dated men. Okay. Meaning old. Meaning, you know, but it's it can still be taken out of context. So, you know, you wanna watch we say. According to urban dictionary is saying that is a sexually promiscuous person with no discretion. That's yeah. That's probably the nicest way to say that. Okay. Yeah. Okay. Relented on. I don't know. I'm spending. When there's only two right? I could just go back. It's fine. Okay. So we got I think one should be left out. I think there should be. Okay. Then we'll we'll leave out. I bet you'll never know what that means site. That's the secret of people. Wait. Yeah. You're gonna get some complaints. Sorry. Okay. So final word is smoke. What is so small like? Oh, yeah. We know that can't get any of that smoke. But you don't call it vaping. It's they don't all at vaping. Smoke smoke smoke. Is it spelled SM? Okay. Yeah. So isn't it like you don't want any of the smoke filthy? I'll whip ya. Yes. Yes, kiva. That's exactly what it is doing anything. Mel. Okay. I'll whoop you. Yeah. Like, I'll smoke beat you up. You don't want any of this or like drink your world on a piece of me what they would say back in the day that I'm very confused. So this is not like that. You have like a brisket. No, not that kind of. Okay. Okay. Tell what it was. No. Although I would say that like you're not getting any of the smoke because it's all my brisket. I would say that. My look at this brisket at I've been smoking. It's dripping. Yeah. It's gotta dress solicitous that. Yeah. Brisket drip. Hashtag brisket, drip. That's one on the show. So yeah. So it's typically used when someone is like it's like. Word. It's like an alpha word. Okay. So. Maybe. Yes. We get now making sense. Okay. Okay. So. My my favorite British rapper. Twenty-one savage would say, you know. Yes, you got asthma. You don't want smoke who want cancer. I'm giving out smoke. Okay. So with smoke, and that's why he got deported. Okay. Yeah. Rhyme. It doesn't matter and rapid more. And he didn't want all that ice. Right. No, he doesn't. Good. Okay. All right. Say it again. So a smoke is almost like imagine like if you were into like a fight outside and there's like a cloud of dust after you don't want that smoke. You know, what that's most? Yes. Her SEIs -ly. Yes. That one that one. So he's gonna get you guys. Got it. Right right off right off cuff. I like that right now, it refers to the physical fight and not the verb fight. Like, I'm going to smoke. You. Is that is I think people would get what you're saying. But that's not what we what we're talking about other content now. Okay. So I believe it's like it's like the smoke at the end of your gun. Body. So I might you don't want. You don't want to smoke because you'll be dead. Right. So that that's what that is. Okay. Are catch these hands. Also, you don't want this. You don't want this smoke, actually dance. Precisely precisely precisely precisely. Okay. Like. Yeah. Okay. I guess we're finished. Now. I have I have you guys are pretty much doing this the whole time. But I was just going to say like. Maybe we could we could put to the test gets you guys to form proper sentences. You know in the proper context, you know, who send us eight words or the seven Reverend words, then I can do that. Sure, you just say them. I mean, I have a pen for the listeners Esco in his get it. And then you was the second one. Right. Okay decades. Okay. Does I I didn't I didn't do this in order. So it's different in my note says it's dress AM all of the order okay ups. Yeah. Smoke smoke, no cab. But I'm taking it back. Now, you can do use it. I sent come on got, no. Esca us down pores. That one bus down was last one. Okay. All right. All right. No, no. I bet it better than forget it. No. I bet you guys you guys. Yeah. Klis spelling on that. If anybody wants to go on the urban dictionary. Garbin dictionary. I feel like makes it worse. Yeah. I h t. Would not have. Yeah. Yes. Okay. I have to say this would have been a very this podcast was pitched by two people like at the same time. And if Jess sterling from the the wraps episode was was was our explainer. I feel like this would have been a very different. Yeah. Very hundred. That's what I'm saying. Like, and I kinda feel bad because like I I kinda went we would have been cancelled if it was Robin. Jess, we would have been able to cancel cultural. All right. So I I think that Phil should test us on. Yeah. What we've learned. So Phil I think that this is what we should do. It should be mean Akiva are now going to compete for who was the best student today. So I think that you give it's already been established rob smarter than me. So. Keep it can get redemption because he can't more of millennial friendly than I am. So Phil could you throw out different people or subjects from you know, from the world today. And then we have to make a sentence using what we've learned here today to describe these things. Okay. Emma stone. Emma stone, Akiva, okay? Emma stone as going to be bust down tonight at the Oscars. Everyone's gonna be saying, gee, even the ops are going to be like, no, they don't want no smoke, and they're going to be like, hey, who's got all the jewelry. I know got the plug. It's Emma stone, by the way, she's a smoke. No. I think I use that one wrong. And. Past the close. Esco asker, and there's no cap to how much Jewish she can give out. I'm pretty close. I know no live. Oh, no cap. She really just won best picture or something. Okay. Now, I'm gonna wait for rob sentence. And then I'll Martin to go on Emma stone, also or a different different per person per person, you say Watson, give them Jaakko willing. You know, you can have Robin Thicke Brown Moore. Okay. Boy, I don't really know a lot about him since the blurred lines video. But I don't know if you know. All right. No cap. I don't watch the meth singer. In fact, the singer is is my ops. And if I'm looking for reality, TV CBS is my plug. The you know, I've got I've got some oke with FOX. Are they are they're they're my they're my ops too. But I will have to say that that Ken Giang often has a risked where that's bus down. Oh. Okay. So you didn't put it in this get it. And. I don't know if put in a year. If my two dads comes up in the fishbowl. I will say both Esco and get it. Nice. Perfect. Perfect. Andy. Okay. So I'm just going to say you both past you both have passed uniform. Akiva, you did get a lower Mark just because you're really with that at the end. But. Yeah. Both the rob technically wins. But. You did you bolted? I bet with that assessment. Yeah. I'm ops to that. I feel I feel like my own examples were better just messed up the last one. Did you get confused with one of the other Emma's? I thought it was A Roberts. We were talking about the trashy one. I don't know if she's really trashy. Emma roberts. He said, I don't know emelina. Learned so much. What does she do? She was a wrestler she stole from WalMart. Oh, yeah. Okay. I guess I guess you guys are both learned men now. And job here's done. So you're congratulations. Well, fill. You did a great job here. Joe capital back to last week. Yes. No cap. It was a fantastic job. And this was not easy to do fill. Yeah. Tell me about it for for both of us. Okay. I guess I'm glad you guys learned anything. Okay. I guess. Because I really I really kind of whiffed by it's fine. It's okay. We all learned. No, you didn't. US go when you. How many lights rob have on the go and get it tweet right now. What do you think two thirty? Yeah. Already tweeted it. Okay. How how's it going? Okay. Well, you were gonna keep wanting you to guess I'm going to say you got ten ten k plus likes probably plus now. No only twenty nine so far only people think it's close. You're you're right there. Now, Phil I think it would be rude. If we did not offer you the chances that are there any a words that you wouldn't like kiva or I two lane to you that are either or or older millennial words. Okay. So maybe I don't know. You can't really do this on a podcast. But I was just wondering if you teach me how to do. The twist twist. Like do the block boy J, B dance or. Each me like. Yeah. I know I had a couple of things we didn't talk. It's it's you know, it's it's it's fine. I just I I don't know. Let's see I'm looking to see if there's any gen-x terms if something is so meant Phil do you know what that is? What that is. Like, I don't know like clean is. This sounds like sounds like you know, like like to like to the fleet can people fleet or fleet cancelled fleet cans, mold. Three or four years ago cancelled. Yeah. People still have swag. My daughter came home from the first day of fourth grade. And I said how is your house your day? And she's like, well, it was okay. But kind of lame because I'm one of only two kids in the grade that has any swag. I didn't know what she was talking about. I feel better saying this rep, right? Yeah. No. You don't want your daughter to have any drip. Okay. All right. Is that the only way you're going to teach me? I'm trying to see orange obvious. Let's see I think that that most of these are pretty self explanatory. The thing about being gen-xer really wasn't an internet or urban dictionary invented so everything had to be sort of easily. Explain what you said like awesome in sweet. And that was yeah. There wasn't more cruel. And if they're were people saying who words, we didn't know about it. Because there's no way for them. Tell us about it. Right. Fresh the cool people like little baby we're not going to converse with Robin myself. Now, they've no choice because they're on Twitter, and everyone could see what will baby and Lil Yati and everybody's up to but nah, but back in the day, Robin. I we we had no contact with yadi or the or whoever the little baby yadi where maybe two buck and big year whatever, but we didn't know them. Excellent. The power of the internet. I tell you it's it's a beautiful thing. Okay. Phil if people want to hear more from you in every one of them. No, no, that's different plug that is if you want to if you want the the plug for more Phil T, how can people find you? Well, I am at filler d- P H L E R D on cheese on on Twitter on Instagram. I'm not I'm not filtered on tick tock. That was my handle was stolen from me by German boy. So it's filtered with three in shoes. Done a whole thing on tick tock 'cause I robbed you know, a lot of tic TAC tic toc Takashi. I really should've done whole thing because tick tock is a wild scene. Lurk on talk social network. It's it's just it's it's the new vine. Okay. Only white trash. Yeah. It's it's it's something else. But I I am a constant poster on I have I have a crazy tick tock following. Okay. It's too. Well, it's it's it's it's a little kid and bread Farren. Call okay. Make minor league tennis tick tock also on that on there. That's why he's on there is that they're getting like view of some German tennis storm. That's only available in like in like Gort. Yeah. Right. And now Manny Machado is an ops of Brad now. Right. Correct. I guess. Yeah. And fill that is it true. That your Twitter handle was Phil heard with an A before you started following a little pump. No it wasn't. You guys crack me up you guys crack me up guys. Thanks, so kind of you. All right, Phil. Thank you so much we greatly. Appreciate it. And we'll see if this in ten more episodes. This might come up for another round on the wheel Scana, hope culture. Completely change us in the next ten weeks. Yeah. Oh. Phil. Thank you so much. All right Keiv. We are ready to talk about the mail bag here on Robin. Akiva, number twenty four. Yup. The dirty dozen this episode. Yeah. Okay. So hopefully, no no ops for this episode. You never told me if you were to pack our big guy, though. Yeah. I really was not super aware of either. Like, I was like I like I knew like their names, and then probably more so of biggie than than to pock. But then I think that both of them ended up being a little bit more things that I learned about after their unfortunate passing. It's funny because I believe if I'm not mistaken, I believe your wife was to puck, STAN. Yes. Yes. She she back that two or almost no thought about it. I think as you're thinking about it. But I think at that time, I think she was you know. Fifteen or sixteen years old. So and that's also that was also like her free pass. If to puck was still with us pop was I don't know if that's like, I don't think we've ever thought she said that I may have to talk to be so nervous about it. Right. I think that we've really ever had this conversation about any public figure let alone public figures that have been deceased for twenty years. But I mean, I guess I'm okay with the two pock hologram. I'm not sure that would work. Okay. But I wasn't expecting to talk about this. I have not had this conversation with my significant other. We don't have a hall pass. I'm gonna talk to my wife about that about. You know, who's my hall pass? Yeah. But you have to do someone like a listener something so many incredibly attainable just to upset her. Right, right. You know, I I don't think that necessarily works the same way with. The these men and women hall passes also this work because like in a relationship like that like a man and a woman it's like you could say someone's your whole pass. But like like the one who actually go out much more often than you can actually make it happen. What I'm saying? You will get you will get too much smoke there. Do you think in the history of the world? Do you think that anybody has ever met their hall pans, and then has had sex with shore? Now has a guy ever done it with a celebrity woman. That's a better question. Yes. Right. If you're attractive woman and your whole passes like a comedian coming to town DM you have at least like a ten percent chance of meeting. I mean what happens but hear me out here me out. Okay. So you trash or that part? That part is happening. Then is the conversation then with the husband like, but it was my whole pan. You got me. You got me. You did say if David Spade ever. And then I I guess I what can I say you said that was that was the whole pan. All pass for right? It'll come right over. So do you think that that has ever happened that kind of everywhere that hall paths, and then like, hey that was my freebie? Yes. But there's definitely been whole divorces. Also, should we should we do put on the wheel, Robin? Akiva, get somebody has if somebody has any hall pass story, you know, I don't want to say. Ends in a happy way or other way. But any hall pass story put it on the wheel we really wanna get into. You could read it will read anonymously next week in the mail bag. Also, okay. Yeah. Let's do an episode on that because. Z like they want us to help them meet their past that we could we could think about that. At least. We like jewel the singer not. The smoke. I don't know if there's any survivor hall passes. Or go to one charity event. You could knock out. All right. All right. I think that the obser- circling. All right Keiv, we have mount reneged more coming up here any other old business. You wanna talk about that? I know we're trying to discuss having a listener go through all the old episodes. So we did we did do that. Right. We have this. I'm setting you up. Oh, thank you. You're like the John Stockton. And I'm the call. I think. Kobe Bryant's wife. Yes. To amazing listener shown Falconer, and we still married. Yeah. We didn't even know chef have listening, but he's out there. And we'll from America the immortal for America. He they both. They teamed up. I think we'll America got got the poll rolling, and they made a excel document with a bunch of different tabs that has everything are a any P related. So they have every pitch we've ever read on air. They have everything that's currently in the in the in the mailbag and on the wheel in the fishbowl. The the list of podcast we've done with links. It's a it's a full-service document. And I will can you wanna post it with the episode rub in the in the episode links and also tweet about okay? And so we're going to turn off the that anybody can edit the document anybody can view the document. Yeah. Anybody could the document. I mean, if if if we'll America who I think created document if he wants a helper, I'm sure I'm sure it'd be down for a helper. But because access he had the. Catch up twenty three episodes. Now, it's just adding a few ideas every week. And but yeah, you can add will from America, but great job by then it's a it's a it's a very thorough documents every every pitch we've ever read. Did you have any takeaways after looking at the spreadsheet? We've we've done a lot of writing we really done like hundreds of ideas lot of stuff in the wheel waiting room. I think that that's that's important. Yeah. Look, we're gonna clean up right now. We're busy season for the for the for the mailbag. But at some point we will really not the wheel, wait a minute. We have a lot of in there right now. Currently we have rejected one hundred ninety five ideas all of them. Great just not not we'll worthy. This is. Really? I didn't realize just how detail this was the thank you will and Sean for for that. Yes. So we're going to get like like. Oh, okay. Well, here's my pitches. That Robin Akiva have to pull something out of the one hundred ninety five rejected ideas. I will getting so self referential. I think we could do that eventually, but we have a lot of good ideas right now waiting in the wings that have not been read yet the wheel waiting room. So rob this week. Let's go with number one on mount Rene more next podcast is going to be during March and Mark for people on the internet, podcasts, and blogs and websites is family famously bracket season SEM bracket season. Yeah. So we, you know, there's some talk that maybe we should bracket a fi some of the episodes coming, you know, coming up we have one bracket on the wheel. That is the TV theme song bracket where we're going to go through. I don't know thirty to sixty four hundred twenty eight some I don't know to fifty six five twelve ten twenty four twenty forty eight forty ninety six weekend. So. Some combination of those with Alexander Chester from Harvard with the e and so. That is on the wheel. But that right now has a one in twenty or one in fifteen chance of being picked. So my mic first question, we've a few bracket related ideas right now. My first question is because it's March for March only should any bracket related idea starting with that one get the equivalent spots of whatever season three episode seven has on the wheel. Hm? To give more of a chance spots. Right. It's gonna be six spot. This week. Then it goes down the two next week. Boy, that's big. But I guess if we're ever going to do it this month. Okay. Fine. So ever many spots three seven. I think it's six right now like you said, so then we're adding six spots the wheel five extra spots for TV theme song bracket. I think that's fair. You know, we do have an ombudsman. I didn't get to that. But we do have an Budman who apply that we haven't really rubber-stamp. But maybe that's something. I should've asked her. Okay. All right. Do you? Do you want to mention that? We we have a person who has applied to be our buds Mun. Yes. So issue wrote in and said, this is a few weeks back. We said we need to podcast on buds men to really a buffer between us and the listeners that they could get blamed that if someone has complain about about. It's basically a shield between us and the. Yeah. The so she says, she's a licensed clinical social worker, and she's previously worked as a therapist and works as a public defender agency an arbiter and advocate was hard to protect people's rights laws regulations investigating complaints and help people help parties reach a mutually beneficial solution. These are characteristics uniquely hold because of my background education training social worker, especially qualified and being able to listen and remain objective solution focused or all right? And I use written in before she's reviews patron longtime listener, I think issues got the gig. Now, hold on. Does does she have investigation. Power of if she wants to open up an investigation the respond. It's like she's like the Mueller Muller every we should be able to shut down the investigation. If we if we want we could refu-, we could plead the fifth can we fire? The buds Mun. Oh, that's I think it's a one year contract. That's how it usually works. ESPN and New York Times. There's no special investigation power. No. She can ask questions. We don't have to answer them. Okay, fine. But if she wants to open up a whole investigation into stuff that if she thinks you're cheating on the wheel or something like that. Yeah. Where we don't. We don't need that. We don't need that. We don't need that smoke getting which so who is tenth. So right now, I guess our first job is is it fair for us to add six spots for the Chester podcast right now. We're doing it. But if next week if it doesn't get picked next week. She's like, no, no, no not fair bring that back down to one. Then I think we have to listen there. Okay. All right. So. Sure that she's there if we get stuck and this came up during the Royal rumble. Yes. I don't know. Can we do this? Should we do this? Okay. Yes. Then we will farm this out to our ombudsman. Yes. Okay. All right. Next up. Rob we have because it's bracket season. We have to bracket ideas, I'm gonna read for for for part two of mount rainier more this week. This is from DJ Lebel Klein, okay? And just thrilling. They right in the emails. Call the next hop idea. Which I think needs we need the idea named needs tweaking they channel dismay at my immediate dismissal of the can't believe just ideas podcast in into a new and improved concept. They humbly present Robin akitas first annual next top idea bracket. Here's our words. Justin DJ Bill Klein, that's a tongue twister will prepare and present a bracket of sixteen new ideas to consider for the wheel reach matchup. You'll discuss the merits of the just enough to pick a winner advance to the next round. They've a plan in case the two of us don't agree because that would be a tie. The winner will be guaranteed a spot on the wheel ideas will be generated just by Jess and DJ Lebel Klein, they're open the fans suggestion. They don't want to undermine mount rainier, more ideas can meet specific criteria. We want like don't include outside. Guests are only include whatever seasons ramp seven or whatever it is. But the mostly factor in whatever we say, but we should trust them. This is another bracket based idea. So this is a bracket base the DEA, but it would basically be them coming on giving us eight or sixteen or thirty two or sixty four hundred twenty two hundred fifty six or five hundred twelve or ten twenty four twenty forty eight ideas. And then we would. We would we would pick one. And I guess it would ultimately the whole purpose of the gas would be to put one thing on the wheel. They have a whole Q in a they have an FAQ really in the in the bottom of their Email. How will any work? There will be no explicit sees, but we will curate matchups and brag placement for optimal entertainment. Eat your heart out NCA. What if there isn't a good enough idea and your sixteen year little faith? There will be there'll be more than one that you will want. What if many good ideas, the Bragman sell the problem you really Jones about something a win? If you're like the second or third best idea you could put it on later. Could you say I will? And they say, yes, our hope is that could become an annual tradition. I think I might prefer if the sixteen ideas were in a Royal rumble, but said this is a high concept to ask Brent to put ninety can you turn? The stone cold Steve Austin wrestler into the idea of Robin. And is one of the ideas like this podcast again like is the. Doing this next year. I mean, it seems like a like a lotta work. What if there's an idea that we like that ends up being not like out in the second round. There's something else. We're we're the voters. But let's the greatest idea that was ever invented is in first round matchup because an idea that we also like is the. They answer the question. They said that like the your favorite idea will win the number two idea. You can always figure out later, but it should be that. If if this idea is in the bracket, and we hit doesn't get picked. It can't come up again for a year a year it's banned for for a year. Okay. Now, this is I always think we're getting too self referential. And this is basically just breaking the podcast. This has become a podcast about a podcast this podcast. Remember that podcast pot on pod? That gave you the review and then the listeners cancelled them. Yeah. This is like this is pod pod. But the pod were about is this pot. We just about this podcast for a whole podcast every week. I don't know. I don't know. Where is the problem? No. There's no problem. Listen, if people if you like this podcast, you will love cast where we only discuss. Future episodes of guests that we may one. That has a five percent chance of being picked in any given week. And by the way, we can veto if we don't like it. Okay. So is the idea bracket going on the wheel? Oh, hold on. Let me give you the other bracket, and you could pick one considered a mini team bracket or you could pick one. Neither about the other ideas. We said we need a moral cinematic universe expert. Okay. Yes. We dozens of apple Cassian. I know. And now one person had the greatest ideas, actually, the one person was me. I take it back. I had the idea of I thought of it last week during thirty two fans I thought. What if we put all the moral experts in a bracket and the whole podcast, Royal rumble or or Royal room, and the whole podcast is just about picking more expert. So it could be like around one Mike bloom versus John John. And then and then, you know, listen to one before the the the. The whole point and it sixteen or thirty two or sixty four hundred twenty eight or two thousand six or you know, goes just every time if that is that like e. Something that we're discovering about you the that every time you say the num- multiple. No, that's my new bit. Anytime we say anything that's two four eight sixteen and up. I'm just going to do that. I think. And also with this idea. Let's say we have sixteen people who who we pick for this bracket. Okay. Okay. What if like there? I you know, I round is based on the brief Email. Maybe like one fact about them every round they're judged on some different. But what if we make them send in like an audio? We're not gonna listen to sixty nine. But what if the final four? I'm just. Really? So out on this. Pitch on why they should be the marvel cinematic universe caster. Jeeze? I'd be more in on them. Just coming together as the avengers including. Like put like they can all work together. When done they can hand in one podcast as Todd cast of injures. Then you and I will listen to it. And then comment on it. As we listen, I'm fine. I love it. But let's just put the idea bracket on the wheel. I also want to make the caveat that the idea bracket should expire on March thirty first perfect. Okay. So we're putting it on the wheel you could you could you could mareo mushroom that thing up the idea. We're calling the idea bracket. Yes. Idea bracket. Okay. And it's getting sick spots as well. Boy. See that's I'm going to say for this week because it gets one spot there's five weeks in March. So it's not like it's running at a time. And that's you should call not article. Okay. But listen to the show anymore for all. We know that he. Months ago. Like like, they weren't. My buds been Email. I'm out. I would say she's probably the on buds person. I think. What it is. I didn't that. I didn't want to ask seemed dumb. But I have no idea. What was funny is like ESPN New York Times watching post all had them. And then they realize like, it's bad. Because like why are we paying someone to criticize us the all everyone got rid of their own buds? I never heard the word before they did an episode of the ringer about like. Hey, we're talking are buds men today. Oh, I didn't even know the ringer, really. Land grant land. I think it was a joke. Also, I think it was like one of his they had one at ESPN and. Had a few for like three years. But then they Simmons would always complain about them. They would rip on Simmons. And then and then spend cancelled because again, why are you paying someone to like it's like hiring a union against, you know, companies do that, you know? Yeah. All right. So these don't open up investigation against us. Yes. So we're adding the idea bracket to the wheel, but for now, it's only one spot the marvel bracket, not even we'll wait, and rob has Matombo that completely out of 'em serious about the all of the marvel cinematic universe experts putting one person in charge, and then sending the adventures off, and they can deliver a work like someone's like, John John you're in charge of iron, man. We don't care how it works. So they can handle person who's who's who's who's the head of the events commit the vendors. That's why we need this. I'm not sure is it iron. Maybe it's captain America. Well, they had cats America vs iron man who that person e. For your e. I don't think it's store. But basically, we put one person in charge. And then they hand in thirty minutes of audio and they can get contributions from all the different people in that wanted to be the vendors corresponds funny idea the podcast will be so so bad. Well, that's I think that if it's so so good or so so bad. I think either of those are acceptable to our listeners. Okay. Okay, fair. All right. So that's what we're working on it. We're we're gonna put one person in charge, whoever whoever we we put in charge. They too. Question. Do we need to pick a bracket the decide who were putting in charge? No, no. I think that we we have to pick somebody that we trust that wants to take on this problem. Emails this week through like if you want to be the captain America avengers project, then writing Email this week so may males. I don't want more morally males. To be the leader. This is the deal with all these people reply if you sent it or any reply originally meals, so so I'm not sifting through one hundred miles from different from the same. Not that many people are going to be the leader is a big project. That's true. That's true. People wanna people want to just get the credit and just help out. Okay. How about this? We're going to change something up this week. Okay. I've I've read basically to ideas, it was like ten ideas. But it was technically to ideas. I just sent you a list of ideas that have been sent in about two dozen ideas, I'm sending weeks, and I want you to pick some ideas, which we've never really done before. Okay. You hit me. I'm looking here at the Chinese menu of ideas that kiva has sent me, and I have a couple of things that struck my fancy a little bit. And I want to see what you think about these ideas to go onto the wheel. And the let me start with an idea that comes to us from our beloved friend shut up, Tim. Okay. Good. He's never had an idea read before so perfect that you're reading his idea. Okay. He's gotten an idea onto the wheel which has been a podcast at least one the. Robin. Akiva, get sorted. Yeah. The Harry Potter one. Okay. So shut up. Tim writes in and says Robin Keefe compete against each other in a spelling bee each wrong, spelled word a dollar from the incorrect person goes into a pot which is won by the overall winner. Each round of the spelling bee increases in difficulty starting at first grade words, and with national spelling bee level seven kiva would you like to compete in a spelling bee is can we get Missy involved. Can we bring back the rene-paul stars for the spelling bee is Missy a good speller? We have no way, I'm issues. A lawyer are lawyers. Good spellers. We don't know. Other ups that we could bring in for for. The spelling beef. Eric Tomlinson from the jets, Eric Tomlinson? I don't know who else we've really been shading. With us. I'm not sure we. Be will be over in five minutes. Well, you know. It could be a shorter episode. But as the levels, go up, I would be it'd be interesting. We put this to vote. Should I think people want us to just make a call on these things? Vote about votes, and it lost last week people said should there. Be a vote about how good every episode was. Yeah. And everyone said no, it was resoundingly defeated. I believe. Okay. Some people did say, yes. But I think people were like, no, I don't want that. Okay. Fine. All right. I thought it would be good to have sort just sort of like an easy metric like oh. Seventy two percents that thumbs up this week job. Next week. So twenty-five, we could have people someone make a form like one of our interns, and and people could sort of fill it out. And then we could have a top twenty five over twenty five. I like this idea. I wonder if there's a slight tweak before we put it on the wheel. Okay. Whether it's a guest, I think we could put this in the waiting room for now. Especially since we have already added one one big thing that we I I think it's going to be very short. And I don't know if people care about spelling and. The play along. I think that it would be good for the podcast. I think that like jeopardy. Yeah. He's got jewel. It's not a little word. If you don't if you don't know if you wanna see if we're getting it, right or not, right? Do we also have a spelling bee person? Who would be are like I don't know who would be the host of coming up with women who were in don't tell me your fourth grade, spelling bee I want someone would offer it to shut up shut up. Tim would like to host the spelling bee that I feel like that. That's something that I'm fine with him being the host on a third person. I feel like that. I don't know if we need them. So we don't we don't need. We don't even opposition. You're saying, well, we should have another tab on the spreadsheet for ops of that. We can then have as easy to go to spreadsheet if we can add that if will could go back and listen to all the episodes again this week again. Yeah. Sean Falconer cours rose. Does he have a cop finding or some guests? And then we then have a tab of all of our enemies and easy to find place. Yeah. That's not a bad idea. I mean, are we incentivizing people to become our enemies because they seem like there's lots of opportunity. Yeah. Know for sure it's much easier. We don't have we don't have a friends sort of tab. We just have an enemies people with. Yeah. All right. So let's put that in the wheel waiting room. And that is that is spelling bee Robin akilah have a spelling bee. I think that's fine. I think they'll make it on the wheel. One more idea. I think it's fun. And I think it would be people can play along on that. And then it's also. There's lots of opportunities for mocking of link. If there's some easy word that one of us gets wrong than people can make fun of us. People are getting concerned with your tweezers Facebook posts about the conus get at tweed people are it's up to fifty one likes eleven comments. People are nervous. You're getting ratio drop. Yes. Okay. Is that good or bad to get ratio? Yeah. You don't know about ratio. No ratio. It is like when you have a tweet. Let's say let's say it's like. You have a really bad take on something and you wake up in the morning. It's like to retweets eleven likes four hundred seventy six comments. That's a ratio. You don't know the ratios. Yes. I guess you've never been raised showed. So you're consider yourself lucky. But it's like, yeah. You have a comment. Like, I, you know, I'm trying to think something, but all the ratios I think are not safe for prime not not family friendly. But it's like if I tweeted like. Actually, you know. I don't know something stupid. Let's say a John Stockton was better than LeBron James something more malicious than that. And they'll get ratio. Okay. All right ratio. Does the term of when I'm when I'm looking at it where people like, hey, let's go ratio your tweet. You can go ratio it, and then you're tweeting ratio. And it's also it's also called the ratio because it looks like a baseball cystic. Yes. Like three twenty four which is like a batting average eleven retweets seventy six likes. So it's like, so they they'll even find the baseball player had those stats like seventy six and then not a multiple thirty two. And then and they'll say like, oh, that's like the Ozzie Smith of tweets. Okay. All right. We should by way. That would be a great episode Robin a ratio, and we just try and find tweets that get us like ratio to the moon, but the problem with year ratio to get canceled. That's an issue. Right, right. You don't want to too much heat. Too much heat is bad too much smoke to too much heat is indicative of smoke. Okay. All right. And then okay. Akiva, this is one where read you two different ideas. And then I'm gonna pitch you on sort of a higher concept idea based off jumping off from the couple of ideas. So Jared writes in and says, Robin, Akiva, recap the animal in this episode, Robin, Akiva could watch in recap the movie animal the movie stars, rob Schneider. Probably also somebody that you don't want on your wife's hall pass, rob Schneider, and Colleen Haskell, and it was released in two thousand and one after Colleen's appearance on survivor the stories about a man who was rebuilt with animal parts after an injury. That would be perfect for the wheel. In this episode. You could discuss the rise and fall of Colleen Haskell from her survivor fame to her disappearance from the public eye. That's an idea from Jarrett. I also want to incorporate an idea that we. Have from Jeff Goldstein who says in nineteen Ninety-six the movie Eddie with Whoopi Goldberg. It's about a Nick superfan that becomes the head coach of the team. It's a mad nineties movie fifteen percent on rotten tomatoes. But it's so bad. It's good. You could do I m d bags and with Whoopi and his lots of other nineties, New York celebrity cameos, there are some sports, but there's lots of other nonsense. So Akiva, I want to pitch you on something that is a new idea. And that is some sort of bad movie fishbowl. Maybe it's not fish bowl. Maybe it would have to be something other than fish on using. Maybe I'm using the fish bowl as a Medicom Sept construct there, some sort of a a bag filled with names of bad movies. If we if it comes up on the wheel, and maybe it doesn't need to be escalating like season three episode seven. No, I think that would be a lot of movies. Yeah. Okay. Maybe it's just like a permanent two spots on the wheel. We have some sort of bad movie been whatever whatever the construct is of picking maybe it's a hat filled with bad movies bail, bad movie hat and movie. Let's go to the bad movie hat. Okay. What are we it's the? The animal. So I don't put the animal on the wheel Eddie needs to be on the wheel, but we could have had filled with bad movies recap. All right. So now, I've thought of this these some of these ideas have been waiting for a while to be read. Here's my issue. And it's really a rob issue. More than kiva issue. Watching movies. It takes a decent amount of time. Okay. Are you as long as the good news bad movies is they're usually like eighty two minutes or not it's not like the godfathers? You know, it's not three hours. I have no problem with it. But I thought at the beginning podcast, you were hesitant to put movies on opposed to twenty two minute episode tell how many times is it going to happen. Every claim on that when when you have to watch like one hundred minute horrible movie, that's watchable, and you complain to me, I can't believe I sit through that. When I'm so busy this week. I mean, how many have movie that came up like that? I mean, we watched leprechaun. Well, now, that's the other issue with the bad movie. No leprechaun. What are we on its own track? The leprechaun gets its own. Gets its own spot on the wheel, but the bad movie bins half this be stuck in a hat with each other. It should be the leprechaun spawned the bad movie confusing because if leprechaun's on in the leprechaun hat, that's confusing. The people. I mean, if our buds buds person says leprechaun needs to be in the hat. I'm fine when leprechaun because where we watch leprechaun, right? Yeah. The well, it would just be it would just keep going back into the next leprechaun movie. Correct. Leprechaun attornal. So here's what I will say. Yes, I'll say, let's. Let's leave leprechaun off the wheel for this week while we wait. Okay. If it gets picked, we'll just we'll we'll go we'll spend again, or you could just take it off manually. And then next week. We'll make decision, but we can't put the I don't think we could do a bad movie hat until we have five bad movies in the in the hat so next week. Are we accepting solicitation? Yes. Or you. Could you read it us? Keep twenty six. Rob sister. Nino or Email us are a rubs website. The calmer new podcast rub is a website that come bad movie ideas. Stop sending the room. We're not everyone's done the room one hundred people Senator also if you have an idea for what what container should the bad movies being. Yes, right now, it's a hat, but we're certainly willing to change the bad movie hat into literally anything could be a trash ban. It could be a toilet bowl. It could be Vermeulen Peng balls. Can it be pingpong balls and a hat or slime? Can we get slime? Inside. Definitely not definitely not. Okay. 'cause rob is a famous lime haters. The bad idea. I can make a good idea for it. Okay. It could be like each ideas in a clean diaper. What about that clean diaper diaper? But I take a bunch of divers, but there's nothing it's like unused. I have like a bag full of diapers on sq. I mean, we had a lot of diapers here. I still have a kid in diapers. I do have a bag full diapers back here. Are they diapers that your kids had outgrown? He doesn't have grown. We just by them like Costco styles. So I mean to waste I I mean could still use them. If there's a piece of paper in it. I guess writing the diaper with the market. We'll be up put a piece of paper with the movie name. I'm not gonna like right on the diaper with Margaret. That'd be funny diapers that he grew out and your wife's coming your office. Like throw out a bag diapers through. She doesn't throw any fan of my office is my job. It's a big issue. I wish he would clean my office. Okay. So don't even want to. All right. So Akiva is gonna keep a bag filled with diapers. Clean diapers. Let's Burs with with the ideas crappy movies crappy movies. Yes movie. Okay. So right now, we have Eddie. We have the animal culling Lasko. Welcome to come on that podcast. And and yet, so let's at least two or three more. And then we'll get we'll we'll have the bad movie, which should be like a diaper. Genie. Those diaper genies like I don't know what what is going to be stored. It got to figure that. Right. Someone. Someone will have a good pitch on that. All right. So fine that is going on the wheel but next week. All right. Yeah. All right. It's a lot of good ideas. We put one thing on the wheel in two things are are waiting. I feel like we're more focused when we when we've narrowed them to for even though we really read like an idea. But okay, let's set up real quick. What's on the wheel, Robin, Akiva, Salva murder? That's where we are watching episode of CSI, New York and talk our way through each act season. Three episode seven up to six spots on the wheel. The coin flip where kiva has a coin. The coin IVA Quinn. And then either the winner of the coin flip will decide what we do the Oregon trail the rise in fall of JT the TV show bracket, which has six spots on the wheel MTV shows trash leprechaun two is off the wheel officially. Mr. Yes. Life coach. That's like the Caitlyn Herman infomercial trash the Royal rumble and the idea bracket with just one spot. But potentially the idea bracket may get bumped up to six spots for next week's show. Okay, keiv. Here we go episode number twenty five Robin kiva Nita podcast rounding around the wheel. Goes it is spinning and slowing down on one. You're not gonna believe this, Akiva, TV themes on bracket, you're close. It is the idea brackets my gosh, people eight when somebody gets put on the wheel goes on right away. Idea bracket it has an earned. It's pinstripe says an idea it should be on probation should get like a we put things on a wheel. And now, it's well, it shouldn't if it comes up the first time it goes on the wheel the wonder if I use show the buds person has yesterday for this going, listen, this is canon. I'm feeling you're not vetoing this, right? That would be insane. No, no. I'm not gonna so we're gonna kick off March madness next week with the bracket, I guess that works with the bracket. It's funny because it was a good probably gonna go up to six spots next week. But it's somehow made it with one. Yeah. Technically, I know there's only four days in four more days in February. So it definitely will. I figured this next week only gonna be February like weeks ago on Google calendar like this podcast brackets. Okay. So Akiva here we are. And we're going to have do Jessica sterling DJ Lebel Klein have sixteen ideas ready to. Go part of their Email was do we how much notice do we need? I mean, I'm gonna Email them the second. We hang up here. But I think I think they will be ready to go. Okay. Now. Of course, what we gotta stop accepting ideas where it's like eight guests come on. It's so annoying. Oh, now, you've really changed your tune. What? I don't care. You edit the podcast not me. I just have to show up. Yeah. Okay. All right. Akiva, eight work. I enjoyed this episode. Phil did a great job on time. Can I say one more thing actually, speaking of the mail bag? Of course, it's not necessarily for. I mean, I guess it is applicable for next week. Should we started getting audio submissions? Sure. Would that be more fun lets people want to feel like if you send nor to submission? There's a much better chance that will read it because right now we're reading one hundred fifteen things that get sent in. But what the people to do that the the record record the use the audio recorder on your phone, and then send and send it in as an Email attachment. Oh, I don't know. You're the tech guy number where people could send it up. You don't want it up. Sure. Sure. But then, but you don't have access to to that. And then you're going to be listening to a lot of survivor voice mails during the week is there. So there's no way to separate. That you're saying there is not a grid separate, but we could start a new let's start with the Email. And then if if it's catching on we'll come up with like, we'll set up like a speak pipe account, or if you want to send our audio Email. We might read it possible will will will will also like that neither of have heard it. Because most of these ideas, I've sort of read through those rely. Yes. So you said an audio idea just say, I mean, you could send a video. We're we're not going to be the week. We're going to do a podcast where the entire first half of the podcast is the siding an idea to put on the wheel. And then the second of the podcast is deciding lots more ideas, the put on the wheel. Well, maybe should we not have a male just like a odds and ends. But we won't put things on. Okay. That's smart smart. There's a twenty two episode. So no mount more next week the whole and this way Jessica did get her wish. I can't believe it's just I got God. I got. Yeah. You got the back door pilot for can't believe in early ideas.

The last week ranked the top nine nine movies of Twenty-eight teen. And it's I think it's bracket season for us coming up. Also, we're doing a lot of brackets on thirty two fans. Okay, brackets and me, you're in luck. You heard you doing a patriots scandal bracket? It's none of. Sick ear stone or the NFL bracket. That's good idea.

Oops All Wafers with Michael McMillian

"Hey guys I'm stevie Nelson Dave Horwitz and this is I burn everything a food and relationship. Podcast Dave we are faced timing. Were facetime ING. I have a brand new USB microphone that I've purchased because we are on day. Eleven Dale Event. Social System is absorbing or sell shadow. She'll quarantine in distancing. I I was talking about this week. Yeah we were like all calm like this is going to a puzzle. This is a vacation. Yeah I am wiped out. I am legitimately wiped out. I have had just a stroke of bad luck all week and I I'm exhausted. I'm exhausted from all this doing talk about your week at all. I'll just give you a brief. A brief rundown ra about t-boned last week. I heard him sorry. Thank you Yeah woman just drove her car. Straight into my. Yeah that's real bad like didn't really even make sense. The accident itself was like I watched it happen. Do you know what I mean like. It was like shoes coming straight at me so strange and there were no cars around like there's no reason for it. Which was the fun part? And then like five days later A guy broke into my car. Shattered my window and stole my person all of my identification and spent two hundred seventy one dollars. Forty two cents at target and I hunted him down by calling all the targets and I have security footage of him. We didn't tell me this part. I knew about the breaking into the car. You found him Dave. They have footage of him. He's like a really tall man who was wearing. I mean sounds like anyone but he was wearing a blue hoodie and a black jacket and they have footage of him. They wouldn't release it to me. They would only release it to the police who I have filed a criminal investigative report with good. Well I literally said after I looked at my window and it was shattered and he stole my purse. I was like He fucked with the wrong person. Well look I mean listeners. Es Stevie is not want to be fucked with. She's she's very She's one of the kindest most generous however I would not recommend crossing her and I haven't to this day for that reason because I share the wrath. Well I'm just loyal and I have a deep deep desire for justice and I don't want him to do this again to someone else. This is a Krim. This is a master criminal. He'll he did it to someone's car across remind he'll do it again. I would like to spare someone. The pain And hopefully they catch him so I I really hope they catch him. This is not the time to be breaking. I mean look now it. Actually you were going out so no. It's not the car meekly. It's not the time through breaking into people's cars who are trying to get some fresh air. It was so discouraging. Dave I was just trying to go for a walk and then come back and I'm like. Oh that's a bummer. I have to cancel all my credit cards and get a new drivers license. He also stole my hand sanitizer. Oh fuck that insult to injury. I know Dave it. Was You know it didn't bug me until today and I it just sort of has like my whole system is crashing understandably I Okay so the real purpose of this intro could and I could I could I could talk. I could talk and catch up with you for hours and I think we'll probably continue to do that longer. Were stuck inside. But we're recording this intro. Because we have a very hyper normal episode of iron everything right now. So we're doing this intro. After the fact we recorded this episode truly was two weeks ago. At this point it was like two weeks ago right when there were just little little tiny bits of pieces about Kovic nineteen. It was just still not a thing. We're if you weren't glued to twitter or the news you probably weren't super up on what was going on. Which is why we talk about going out. We talk about where we like to go out. I talk about how I went to the gym There's a point in it where I I. It's a spoiler but I talk about wasting food things. We can't even do anymore. What not that. I even wanted to ever waste food but listening back them. The sons horrible And I it's just such a weird. It's a bizarre thing to listen to something that sounds dated and it was recorded literally within this month. So we're That being said it's a very fun episode. We have a very great guests He is the host of bigfoot collectors. Club you can see him on crazy ex girlfriend. What about you true blood? His name's Michael Macmillan. He's a wonderful guest. We had a great conversation with him. WE JUST. WanNa drop in because it's going to sound a little weird because nobody's panicking in this episode. Nobody's talking about how they can't secure any rice or beans because they're all sold out from US restore no one's talking about paper towels no. It's definitely like void of all the current problems. We have right now But I hope it's still kind of uplifting and at least makes you laugh a few times. Yeah it's a very very fun conversation you and I will be back Next week most likely to talk about Some more pressing issues and I really am hoping I'm sure the listeners by this point are too. I want some updates. We gotta we gotTa Creative Vigilante duo and find this guy with this blue hoodie and his black jacket and we need to smash his window now. Dave here's the thing were justice warriors. So we don't want to smash his window right. We're not we're not. We're not GONNA tit for tat but we will. We will get him very arrested. Okay well you're promising right. Now you're not GonNa Smash Window promising. I will not damage or do anything to him but I will seek social justice okay. So shaming is coming You can't I will cancel him. Okay well a refunding your cancel cancel. No one likes you your bummer. You'RE A MENACE TO SOCIETY. And but by to you Sir Okay. So without further ado here is our wonderful very recent and yet still dated conversation with actor podcast her. Michael Macmillan here we go Hi Michael Vick. Millena that you're here I just want to give the audience a heads up. If at any point I stop in the middle of thought and go my baby. I just wanted to know that I'm not holding an actual human child but I am cuddling rocket in my arms And I think neither one of us have ever been happier frankly. He looked sell content. He's he's got his chin resting on your forearm. And he's in heaven. I think if I ever stopped doing. Bigfoot collectors club can have a podcast called podcast with dogs And it's just people talking with dogs in their laps. Awhile Tim maybe see we know I think go. I've never asked to be on their podcast. Because I think it's like bad etiquette but I emailed the people. Have you ever heard of the podcast? Can I pet your dog? Yes yes I haven't listened to it though I mean I've heard of it. I mean I just cold emailed Ben like years ago and was like hey can I be on this podcast? And then they had me on and it was great but you. That's the secret to the secret. You have to ask the universe for what you want. I think I think podcast while holding dogs would be perfect because it would. No one would spe- screaming. No one would be too quiet. It's it would lower your blood pressure and elevate your mood and so you would. I feel like it would just be a lot of like. Npr style tone of Hayes. Has Everything's been great and even if you've had been having a terrible they use it for some reason I think everything is perfect right now consider this a backdoor pilot. Oh Wow wow. Wow we should get a dog man. Cc At spotify Campfire Body any company that wants in on this. Just this is a poor man's copyright. Yeah Yeah Cash. Offers only yes. Delivered the bag in the bag is full of cash. 'em Puppies Green bag. Let's do it. Oh and We could like get dogs. Need Homes McCann. Hold dogs that need to be adopted and then at the end of every episode people can adopt those dogs. We decided this just became an actual idea. This is accord- also stop recording. We have to get a video camera here to fly Cameron here and we need to get some dogs rescued dogs. You know what it is. It's like the morning episodes or morning news when they have those little segments of adopting dogs. But less bad and funnier funnier. It's just there there there and then we remind you and then you get to hear how sweet they are because they're not making a lot of noise. Yeah and then. If one's really loud you'll know that's GonNa be like one of the most downloads. That's all that's pure comedy and you have to deal with it. It's a podcast with dogs. I really want to do this. All right we'll talk even if you don't want me as Komo's I'd like to guess Coho sometimes. Listen I'm holding. The candidate is right now and the dog. These let me animal. Rotating third rotating special guests. Maybe once a month is the space. I'd like to crack could be in on this. I'd like to company with like pair with like Care Rescue La all these rescues. Musk euboea thanks in rescue Los Angeles problem is. I'm just GonNa take all the dogs home myself high. Yeah me too. This is just when we start a fire becomes a podcast farm. Just an excuse for me to get more dogs. This far trump's My idea for a second podcast which is called What is your life? Which is me sitting down with Comedians or people who seem to have to always on vacation. But I don't know what their job is. What their background is and I go. What is your life? What do you do? I read your tweets. You're always on a plane. You're always on an island. What is your you have to go like instagram post by instagram posts? Why were you hear what happened here? How did you meet this donkey in a lagoon? You appear to be bi coastal. Explain that I love this idea. How did you find snow? Thursday vacation midweek is having. Everything's on a Wednesday. What's what's your life you have. No I am DB but six hundred thousand instagram followers. What is your life and the description your description for each episode of how many times you've said the phrase what's your life seventeen times and the title of each episode is how many followers they have old with so it'd be like yeah like nineteen thousand with Steve Guys. Give me another idea. Let's go. This is a power says. Yeah Shark tank for podcast. I honestly think we could have a business. That is we help. You Form Your podcast idea. We brand it. We name it. We like we come up with a great idea. A great like twist and hi. It's us that's our since. Oh no by Mike. Thanks for coming by rocket. It was nice knowing you can have them and yet we have a concert for our show that we must adhere to and yet. We have not done that yet. But we're we're going to. We can start right now. It never is too late to start again whom we got. That sounds like about civil is oh my God. That is a podcast. Somebody we interview people who halfway through their life. They change their career and they started over or people who got divorced way late. Like anything like a face transplant or new job. Whatever it's never too late start again. Yeah maybe it's a kid who's just like accidentally destroyed his lego tower. You know it could be the microcosm of very cute up can be a criminal who just got out of jail lifetime. It's officer correctly and not get cod. Yeah the first thing most people do when they get out of jail is gonNA podcast right. That's traditional although that would be a pretty good shoe ripped a mad farts. I believe that love you anyway. We don't think I've ever smelled her rocketfire fine. I'm GONNA be honest. They're rough and also I've also been feeding them a lot of hot dogs now it. I do Novak. You've been doing that in general but it did just sound like it was a today's thing like yeah. It's really on and feeding him hotdogs. Pretty Much Stephen. Allison what is your life feeding dogs too hot dogs all day. Hot Dog Tags for sure that you're going to be like I've started this new like organic locally sourced opposite. Not Hot up hotdogs ziplock bag I will feed them kind of dozens about bag that trick to training dogs is. They'll do anything for our dogs. Anything I taught. Lauren how to hug me using hotdogs. I I did see that before. We have a hug and she straight up takes an arm and hugs me. I've never fed a dog a hot dog. That sounds like fun in women to take this as the logical wage should be. Do you like hot dog. Yeah Yeah I like them. In certain circumstances when I was a kid I ate a lot more of them than I do. Now obviously but we never had like hot dog buns it home so my mom would just like boil a hot dog and then slap it onto like a folded piece of just sliced bread. And then I'd put mustard on it now. I was good to go. Yeah now I like it like a dodgers game for sure like baseball game. I like it in the context of like a carnival or sporting atmosphere. Okay it feels so much weirdly and maybe just because the flavor profile of a hot dog is so specific. But I genuinely don't know if I know any place. There's a place called waltz which is a a bar and they have pinball and they have hotdogs and the hot dogs on the marquee like. They're one of the things that they do there. But besides that I feel like you're seeing every kind of artisan Burger Bullshit Kinda place good or bad and we ever seen. I mean there's painters pinks and in Burbank called. I think is like Paprika hot dog show and it had yeah was across the street from the big boys like near that Falcon Theater over there. Oh Yeah we became a new mommy for a while. That did hotdogs and now it's gone. I think it was called pop. His hot dog show and there was this show part like kills me. Yeah and it had illustrate if I'm remembering correctly and maybe this is just my imagination. But it had the the like the sign or the building had illustrations of wiener dogs with cartoon like Old Timey like nine hundred fifty s weiner dogs with like months around them. This is my dream place. This is really ringing about except for the name and the name I feel like I would have caused a twelve car pile up if I had to. Sign is pretty subtle. I believe my brother-in-law is a consultant. But he works frequent frequently in L. A. And at the time he was on a project mortar brothers. This is years ago and I believe he ate there and did not feel very good after. I can't imagine you would leave. Papua's hot dog show feeling anything but horrible and regretful name. That's been passed around like my my my sister and my brother in law and I have talked of like remember the name so I gotta be correct about that if not if not guys fifth PODCAST PODCAST. So besides dogs do you. Do you find that is there? Is there any sort of way that you eight when you were kid? That sort of carried over into your adulthood Unfortunately yes I've had. I feel like I've had recently a weird rebound of like a childish Palette which I really need to be careful about because now I'm in my forties but I. I spent a good portion of my thirties. Eating like pretty. I mean pretty helpful. I mean I'm not like crazy. Obviously but like you know salads and chicken breasts and Blah Blah Blah and then the occasional Junk food you know didn't eat any chip so I don't drink soda like any of that stuff. Still kind of a meat and potatoes guy grew up in Kansas. That's still so that's definitely still in there for me. Like still WANNA eat a steak every now and then. I really like red meat. I try to limit myself but something going on in the past few months. I've been like more pizza. Please just more pizza. I'd like third hamburger this week if possible. I think feeling like that time is running out for this type of fun food shelter and I'm like let's get in before this year's physical because I'm GonNa have to let it go soon. I love that. Do you think it has anything to do with the colder weather too? I find that I want childish. Food and like comfort food. When it's a little colder sure. Sure yeah and it's just been stressful in general. I don't know if you guys have been outside. I don't know if you've turned on our latest podcasts. I can't stand the news but I think I have been I think I have been leaning like I've been leaning on comfort foods a little bit more in the past few months and I'm I'm realizing like okay. This is might be catching up with me now so I need to to work on it. I feel I've experienced that weird sort of like a kid like resurgence. Every now and then for me it was I. I was like very good with not drinking soda and I still am except for a couple of times a year. If I'm you know at the movies or something but I I remember. I was house sitting for a friend and he He had these little. Mini like eight ounce cans behind his bar. That were you know of all kinds of soda. And would you believe it? My Palate has not evolved past going. Oh you know what mountain dew. The possibly the worst thing you could put in your body turns out delicious well so because those food scientists know exactly what they're doing it's evil science. I didn't eat McDonald's for like Twelve years maybe thirteen fourteen years and a year ago in the summer. Because this is like I remember the shit. I had a very stressful day and I was like on a ride home and I was like. I'm going to get some fucking McDonalds right now. I got like a McDonald's hamburger and like a small fry and I was like immediately kit again. This is the greatest thing I've ever had in my life and then like shortly after that I felt gross and I realized like Oh right. This is why I don't eat this but don't think that there was a six month period where I was like. I think I'm going to get some McDonalds again. You know what I mean. So I've broken that habit. Yeah now I'm like well if I don't eat McDonald then I maybe I can anything else. I'll eat this entire bag of peanut butter pretzels. Those peanut butter pretzels from trader. Joe's or like the guy in the world a deadly the I think the trader Joe's snack section in nobody quote me. I'm not a food scientist. That's the work for our food. Scientists on our science podcasts that we have but I would have to say that anything from that immaculate trader. Joe's snack section has to be in some way better for you than like anything I've done. I've agree with whether or not you're eating so much sugar or so much fat. It's like that you WanNa talk about food. Scientists like McDonald's the fact that it just any one you walk into in the universe all tastes the same time as when you were six years old and begging your your thank you there. It's wild yes. Why WON'T EAT IT? It's because like my brain goes to okay so how many millions and billions of things like the idea of it being so mass produce freaks me out but I grew up loving it. Oh young I I love school. Yeah I eat that Shit. Every day I would go through as soon as I had a car I would go through the drive through. I get like two triple cheeseburger super size fries. Small Fried Chicken mcnugget in like a super size coke. Let's do it again. Yeah it yeah but you can do a lot when you're a high school college kid that you just can't do in your forty one. Oh sure would is. Also the the ritual for me of 'cause I grew up in a small town in Massachusetts and there was a We didn't have any fast food in our town. But all the towns bordering us did so we had this ritual of we would drive through Sharon which is my town into Stoughton. Which is the next town over a little bit deeper into it and there was the Wendy's and Wendy's parking lot like I get all indignant now if I am next to something that has a big parking lot. That's full of teenagers because I'm a GRANDPA like waving my cane at them but I remember just posting up outside with my friends for an hour. And how long does it take to eat? Like a Wendy's Burger seconds or minutes for hops. If if you really pace slow you got to cut it in the fourth chew slowly. That's like that's a very like high school and college thing to do though like you meet at fast food restaurants. Yeah when I was in college in Pittsburgh. We were like pretty much. We weren't downtown but it was a pretty. You know like more of an urban area and there was. I didn't have a car and there was a McDonald's. It was like two miles down the road towards you have pit and I remember like every there was like one day a week when an two hour break and I would walk all the way down to that McDonalds and get somebody to come with me mid walk all the way back and it was like the best. It's fun it's good. It's a good thing. I wish there was something like that today that you could go. Do we all go get coffee together. Right running that are about. I love him. I have long just stated on like what would what is the perfect and maybe everybody has their own answer. My my one I think of doesn't even fully scan with all my interest but it's like a non alcoholic thing that has the keeps the same hours as a bar has the same lighting and ambiance. The best bar you can think of but is does something else like how sometimes people are like. Oh we go to recode remind like as a group at Orlando something where the one I can. The one I have is just. It's literally the exact same thing as the coolest bar you can think of but it is just straight up an ice cream parlor that I think it's an and and you know you mix and match but it's it's not chintzy. It's like the things that are served in or cool like a cocktail glass or something. I know it's an ice cream social I mean guys hell. I hope someone is taking notes. Someone's about to get rich off of I was thinking something when you were saying that along that line like if you could take like taken empty parking lot right and put up like in-and-out style like tables picnic right. Circular Picnic tables have like an ice cream or like Burger Stan there. Maybe there's like beer stand you know. Just turn the parking lot until I. That's fine old school. Hang out but you like really focus on it's kind of like you know David Wayne's here in la not so like not so hipster but you give it a little bit of ambience pomp like cricket sounds and like stuff to really make it feel like summer year round and you guys have like just like the feelings that feeling is like just got back from the lake or like you're bound to go bowling or you've come for the bowling alley like the state fair and now you and all of your friends or like hanging out like that kind of an atmosphere sit and chill in like an open air parking lot and just come and go back. Because it's like it's like what David Wayne's and what that place in Highland Park Block party are trying to do but I don't love the idea of having to go into a bar and blah blah blah. If it was just open that feels so good I think of all the big open vacant lots still exists around in La and just turn the lot parking lot into like a standing sort of like fifties drive in style hanging out. That's fine should do that. That's what you should do. That's so fun. I just like this past weekend. Went to a sonic for the first time in my entire life. Sonic was big in high school. That was never even we. We didn't have one near me. There's not one in La Proper There's none in Massachusetts as far as I know what did you think I will? I got I got a cherry lime made. That's all I got. But that's good blew my mind. I was like this menu. You can get a pretzel. What and then and then. I saw the people in Roller Skates bringing it somebody they. I wish that those commercials with the two guys bless their souls. Those Funny Chicago Improv. Guys who've been doing sauna commercials for at this. Point Twenty Years Non Union. Do we know who know has to be non union audition for any of that. No that's what I'm saying. It has to be non union commercials guys. We're like those guys. Those guys are getting criminally underpaid but those commercials are those guys sitting in a car with sonic in their hands and I just assume they went through drive thru and someone gave them sonic turns out a seventeen year. Old Girl and roller skates is bringing out their food. That's not part of the commercial. I think it is criminally under representative of the sonic experience. I mean say something though. I think all of everyone knows that that's how they're not showing it. It's because we all know that they're on roller skates. You know what though maybe American needs a good reminder was he put me 'cause you're just like you don't know about sonic but anyone who knows about sonic it's like you think of like whatever. Their ICEES are what what do they call them? Slushy That I don't know something. They know sets frosties their shoes. Seven eleven slurpee associates. Lada names for the same copyright copyright that Okay So Yours. Are you trying to eat healthy right now? Or no are generally okay. I really do but I've just been like lately. I've noticed I've been like clothing like career. I was like I just want like. I wish I could just have like a futuristic like Philip K Dick Style food products and ethnic food product that I could take out of a wrapper put my mouth and have it just taste like bland hamburger and like fried chicken like like just and then just be gone. Be Done with my day when I was a kid. And they would show on the jetsons like they would take up hill and it tastes like a Thanksgiving dinner. I was like that. That's what I want. I want that. Oh you don't WanNa per week from ice. Always say that and I had no idea where I got it from but I watch the jetsons all the time. That's probably had no idea where from everyone knows the jetsons knows that's sounds that comes from. It's your turn off with this moment like stay tuned for next podcast. That's that comes from. Yeah it's just a bunch of self righteous along all host very opinionated about this. Yeah it was funny because when I was a kid my mom I shoot say that like I. I always prefer a hot meal. You know what I mean. I would always want like a hot launch. Tooling what do you want me like I go? I don't know just want something hot. That is so incredibly not childish. I wanted I always wanted to like I. I still to this day like prefer warm food. Give me something Morrison sandwiches but not I do but I love a sandwich toasted. I'll listen to a lot of sandwiches and they're fine but like I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day hundred percent because it's always hot like whatever you're even the cereal I mean. Technically called like oatmeal oatmeal fried eggs or bacon toast warm. Wow breakfast is your favorite meal. A hundred percent warm failed. You love it. I love like a social breakfast. I Love I went to this place over on Vermont. It's this new little French place Loopier loops and I ordered a quiche and vegetable quiche and then had a little spring salad next to it and then it came with potatoes. Au gratin in the Michael Awesome like piping hot bowl and when those things arrived I was like this is the happiest day of my life like that of me that you really are meat and potatoes. Guy I am I love it. I love it I really do. I can't obviously eat it all the time. But my mid West roots there. What are your preferences scrambled egg? I just looked at my hand on the table. Like I'm five commission. How do you prefer your eggs? Mueller Muller sorry jokes not even you know timely anymore but anyway actually Kinda love that it's sort of like passed off to you kind of banning this way we can think of a FBI. Name fast. Enough I scrambled number one and then unless on a sandwich I wanted over hard I don't want to runny. Yeah I know. It makes for a mass. I do like an ex Benny Rony. That's true. Franek that if you're gonNA fight over her how do you feel about What are what? Wow
