"Okay. So here's the leftist media. Yes. And what they're concerned about is Trump isn't a Christian. So you're saying that's can you imagine being in that newsroom. Running down the hall, Jimmy. We'll just use Jimmy Olsen for whatever. Running down the hall. Sure, I've got the story what Trump's not Christian like. Jimmy. It's two thousand eighteen you just now figuring that out. He didn't say the apostles creed. It didn't say the street, but he's he's not Christian like he's portraying himself as as a Christian in order to get the Christian support. So you're saying you're saying we shouldn't believe Trump. Well, I I don't think that the definition of a Christian is whether you say the apostles creed, I know, no, no, it is not in a in a church service. Outside of your church. Right. So I think we'll just try to make that clear right now. I don't know. As a Catholic and the apostles creed is set in every Catholic mass. I don't know if you reject Christianity or Catholicism, if you don't say it every time, even if you're in your own church. I've never been told that that is a rejection of Christianity. I've never read where that is an outright sending you would be passed out. Am I lost my head and not speak it while it's being said in a in a in a in a mass, right? Do I have to verbal? I this is this is the that's just so stupid. They believe they're reaching for anything hoping that people. Hook onto it. Well, that's it. Now, that's he didn't walk across. And then he didn't actually mouth. Now, the interesting thing is if he was mouthing didn't sane it Nate accused him of lip synching. Yeah. See bouncing. It wasn't really saying. Which means he didn't mean it what if he'd set it. Oh, I just think he said it. But he doesn't really mean it. I just saw that one. Now. It's just ridiculous. It really is. All right.

"I think after the speech is at seven thirty. They said it was going to be open to the public. I guess open all night. I guess it is still going on though. I am not sure I was reminded of something in my life that was extraordinarily important to me at that time and that was in June of nineteen sixty eight when Bobby Kennedy was shot and Bobby Kennedy's body was brought to New York. He was a Senator in New York at that time and Bobby Kennedy's body was brought on a train all the way across the country. I believe on a train or maybe it was flown to Washington and then on the train up to New York City because I remember the great writers like Pete Hamill and Jimmy president wrote about this these are columns, I cut out that saved for fifty years that are somewhere in in my. Stuff somewhere these columns, and I was very affected by that. I really really loved Bobby Kennedy, and he was lying in state will not instate, but he was lying. His body was at Saint Patrick's cathedral, and I wanna say something like June eight June nineteen sixty eight and I went in there with a friend of mine, and we we got on a line that probably went fifteen blocks of and fifteen blocks back and got in a probably in my case three or four in the morning in those days. I could stay up. I wasn't getting up at three or four. I'm now and walked by the casket don't recall touching the casket though. I do recall that others. Did you know it was draped in American flag? I didn't want to do that. But that was extraordinarily meaningful for me. And and I people that make those trips, and there's thousands of people that do this that are touched by whatever small thing happened that give you a personal relationship. I never met Bobby Kennedy. I just loved Bobby Kennedy, and it was important for me to do that. And I guarantee you there are people that went through the capital who've never never met. And it was some small thing that happened that turn them towards George. Herbert Walker Bush, and that they wanted to be there, and it was to see the family when when the speeches were being made, you know, that's an extraordinary family extrordinary. And and the former president was on the verge of tears at many of the many of the speeches. Tomorrow, the entire Govett government shutdown for the services. I think there are four people are going to eulogize him. His son is one I think Jon Meacham presidential story and his one is Alan Simpson. How old is Alan Simpson now, but he was a Senator from Wyoming. I believe Alan Simpson. I think there's something in the paper today that he sold George H W Bush seven eighty seven. Okay. And is there somebody else not? It's not Jim Baker is it is Jim Baker going to them. Guy I've ever met in my life James Baker. Yeah. James chapelle? I think he's opening. But in any case that will be I mean, that's that was an fatter. The capital was kept overnight open overnight, very unusual currently, but I think the thirty four hours or something straight. They were going doubtedly people are going to walk through there. They're going to walk through and just be there. And that is going to be the best most satisfying thing they do. 'cause I I remember doing this Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney. That's okay. So they want us to been very very good pals that that story you mentioned before about changing your age. Yes. Dutchman wanted to change his age when I was driving home yesterday. I was a sing. Of course, the T O P because I need to find out the weather in the trap. Local break. Listen to right.

"Welcome back and let speak English shell. We while. This is no night for name calling. It's been well established that Donald Trump is no friend of the bushes, a close ally of the Bush family said on television tonight that in inviting President Trump to forty one's funeral. The Bush family was saying to this current president. This is how it's done. And so while he will not have a speaking role. This current president will be one of five US presidents in attendance in the National Cathedral. According to a Bush family spokesman there will be eulogies from George W Bush, former Canadian Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney, former Senator Alan Simpson of Wyoming and presidential historian, John Meacham with us tonight, the aforementioned Pulitzer prize winning author and historian Jon Meacham, John is the former presidents biographer and the author of destiny and power. The American odyssey of George. Herbert Walker Bush, which I admit a number of us are now rereading for a second time and retired four-star US army General Barry McCaffrey, decorated combat veteran of Vietnam. A former battlefield commander in the Persian Gulf who served a course under the command of his commander and chief George H W Bush, John do you think that inviting forty five was one of the last official acts of forty one. I think it's part of the ambient reality George Herbert Walker Bush, I president he met was Eisenhower. There's a wonderful picture of him talking to Mamie Eisenhower actually used to hang on the stairway up to his office where he's big and charming and cheese clearly being charmed through President Trump. He always had an extraordinary deference to and respect for the office. And the last thing he would want would be to embarrass or somehow caused any sort of pain to do the incumbent president. And so I think it's a totally characteristic gesture on the part not just of the late President Bush, but also the family at large general, McCaffrey, you and forty one have a couple of things in common. You both went to Phillips Andover. And you both made the choice for the US military though in entirely different eras. We hasten to point out then there. Comes a day when you are placed in command of the twenty fourth infantry prior to Desert Storm give or take twenty five thousand US troops. Tell us what that was like as your commander in chief was George W Bush, George H W Bush, well, Bryan, if you remember with a time of enormous, anxiety, the Iraqis having seized Kuwait were well entrenched. They had a gigantic ground army with modern equipment. What was alleged the time be the fourth largest air force in the world with very modern aircraft. They've been at war for seven years. So when we went in initially, we thought we were on the verge of a outnumbered battle, but one of the things that was enormously comforting to people like me, and I'd met President Bush several time who've knowing that when you looked at the senior leadership, but the US government principally our commander in chief who had seen. In warfare in when we lost four hundred thousand killed in World War Two. We also had chairman of the J she s Colin Powell Norman Schwarzkopf both wounded in combat. We'd a lot of confidence in the people running the government secretary Baker. So that was the atmosphere within which we deployed a war. And then of course, you know, I had the president or on the ground with me at thanksgiving. A marvel experienced thousands of troops in a national natural amphitheatre sand dunes in in came Barbara Bush and the president, and you know, brench go Croft and the senior leadership of congress, and we felt mighty good about this, man. Jon Meacham, Patty Davis was on TV tonight. And she was talking about the the mourning process for a public family talking about her own experience with her dad and her mom and now the bushes with. First lady and the president. There's public grieving which you are forced to share with all of us onlookers in HD live television. Imagine how intrusive any of us would find it. If someone brought a single iphone to a funeral of one of our family members and tried to snap a picture, and then multiply that. So I guess I'm asking about their ability to proceed with what's going to be painful. Private grieving this has been their north star for three quarters of the American century..

There was little but stonewalling and President Bush took over and things changed drastically in nineteen ninety he signed an update to the Clean Air Act was at turning point. Here is president George H W Bush at the signing ceremony. There's an old saying we don't inherit the earth from our parents. We borrow it from our children we have succeeded today. The cause of a sense, a common sense of global stewardship a sense that it is the earth that indoors and that all of us are simply holding. A sacred trust left for future generations, Henry Waxman was at that event in nineteen ninety. He was a democratic congressman who had been pushing for environmental action for years. We reached the former congressman today in Washington DC do X men. How would you describe President Bush's environmental legacy? Without his leadership. We would not have been able to pass the landmark dishes to the American Clean Air Act, including regulation of acid rain under a cap and trade program, he felt very strongly about it. He broke the logjam where we still made it in the congress. And when he provided that leadership we were able to work together on a bipartisan basis and pass up. Practically unanimously it's interesting we've heard over the weekend from our own former prime minister, Brian Mulroney who says much the same thing that he had been pushing for some kind of controls over acid rain, which was affecting Canada Allott and no response from President Reagan, but right away, President Bush was involved in that do you remember that relationship between Canada and the US on this issue? I do recall prime minister Mulroney was a good friend to President Bush and both of them cared about the acid rain problem. Canada was a victim area as well as parts of the United States, including the state of Maine where President Bush had his own property in Kennebunkport where he could see the damage that was being done to the trees to this streams into the pawns as a result of acid rain. President Bush said he wanted to be the environmental president. It is comments that we heard earlier talked about the stewardship that we have that we owe to future generations to protect our environment. What is it mazing statement that is compared to President Trump who has nothing near the sense of obligation that President Bush had and the President Obama and President Clinton had about protecting the environment. Government President Trump simply acts like climate change is something he just doesn't believe in as if these environmental damages require a belief rather than observation of the consequences of that pollution, take it back to the nineteen eighties. Because those of us who around at that time. Remember, what an extraordinary thing the effects of acid rain, where we talked about acid, rain and pollution in a way that people talk about climate change now to something that was quite terrifying. Can you describe how big the problem was that time what we were observing? The problem was not as big as climate change. But specific emission of pollution from the mid western power plants in the United States were being pushed through tall stacks and carried long distances even thousands of miles from the Ohio area to the eastern part of the United States and Canada. And well, those of us who wanted to do something about it at fought for ten years to a stalemate where we just couldn't get anything past Antill? We had President Bush baking it high priority and that allowed us to pass what was called the cap and trade way of using the private sector of the Konomi in order to limit the pollution. So that we could stop it the consequences of asset rate we passed and it's worked, and we able to do something that a lot of people said, well, there's nothing you can do. About it. Particularly the utilities because the pollution made that comment we owe a deep debt of gratitude to President Bush for his leadership, and I'm democrat. We worked together. And that's what the American people would like to see us do today..

"You're not wrong with your William Petersen, man, just original references that I do not understand. I remember this from when we shot for a week. No. It's not a bad thing at home. I had work to do because I'm like, hey, what was Sam? Because it seemed like a reference everyone. Understood and I was just clueless Canadian. But yeah, I can't remember specific if I'm not mistaken at the time we'd shot it, which again was in January twenty ten you'd really only been living in the US about two years that right? Not even I don't even even a year. I don't even think I had my green card yet. I just had my one visa, I just I don't even think I was living in West Hollywood at the time. I think it was just like at a friend's house in the valley, that's pretty wild. Because I I remember when when we worked together of full disclosure, I was not terribly familiar nephew. But then as we got to work together every day you brought the funnies. And so then I thought you out and I looked up. The John door stuff that I was maybe enough with and you are and remain white big fixture of the Canadian comedy. You mean, the the you were talking about you pulled up the door television television show, which was a beloved show that ran for two seasons. Right. If found an audience. Yeah, we did two seasons of that thirteen up so twenty six episodes, and yeah, those ball to make we've got away with murder. I got to hire all my friends if we thought it was funny. We wrote it and didn't have a lot of time to right which in hindsight. I'd love I guess everyone has this regret. But I know I could make that show so much better in hindsight. But everyone would say that. But there's a few things I think where we made Sessoms stakes. Yeah. That's show. There are dedicated follower. So I just went back up to Canada Dichio's in Calgary without fail. There are always people that come up to you and say, we love that show, man. He can we get a picture with you, man. Like it mean for fuck. You would be great mind. If we just do they are the loveliest people on the. Senate and I got really lucky doing that show. So yeah that was. A lot of what I did was that a few of the things that we won't mention. But yeah, that was a really fun show to do all the episodes that I was able to find online possibly not legally. I gotta say I really enjoyed on. You're the best. And I feel like this happened after we shot together. And I may or may not have texted you how much I was enjoying those out annoyed up to. I don't know the taxes. But but yeah, you and so that that actually followed up a stint on Canadian idol, no Canadian earth. I'm saying that followed up a stint on co I'm I'm sorry. The show followed up. Oh, yeah. So so if you want to go back to the beginning, I'll make the super quick I started the so I studied I did two years of television broadcasting in Ottawa got into improv and stand up and commercial auditions that thing, and then I had that dream for whatever reason I thought it was going to be David Letterman. I always thought it was going to be a talk show host. That's what I thought I loved the idea of doing that. And I thought Letterman was a genus. So then, you know, you end up on Canadian idol, you know, these things so, but you know, an audition comes up your this young kid, and then somehow Ottawa they decide you're the right guy to co host this show with Ben Maruni while son of former prime minister, Brian Mulroney. So anyway, you start you do that show..
