"I i just think it's it's worth noting that there is look i gave if you listen back to when after obama as as presidency was wrapping up i did a three part podcast i believe so or three different podcasts all on the obama legacy and the we did one on foreign policy with scott horton and i gave obama credit for the deal with iran and for opening up relations with cuba i thought those were pretty good things that he got done and you know of obviously i i don't like obama i don't think states should exist i would like the state to you know be abolished i'd probably i would settle for like ninety percent of what they do to be eliminated but if we are operating within this context cced i'd much rather get a deal with iran then have the people who are pushing for war with iran get their way you know i that seems fairly reasonable to me and and believe me the stuff with cuba i mean it was like it made me sick to my stomach to listen to bomb go down and kind of praise raul castro talk about how you know capitalism has its benefits and socialism has its benefits and i it was terrible and i it but you know at the end of the day the policy that he enacted was the right one you know it's it's ridiculous to have an embargo against this country for stuff they did back in the fifties and and you know like it just doesn't make any sense anymore the cold war's over the soviet union fell and i don't know let these what these poor people get a little bit more food i don't i don't see how that's hurting anybody that it just seems so even that i would give him credit for trump so far hasn't done anything like that i mean again look when nixon went into china heap he praised mazi tongue he he praised the you know by the numbers the most brutal dictator to ever exist but i if i'm going to be critical about richard nixon for something it probably be you know the way he was slaughtering people in vietnam and not the fact that he said some nice things about a really bad guy that being said.
