"Every day, you heard everything from Herschel Walker that ended up in this ad. You know, beginning with the vampires and the werewolves and all that, listen. What the hell is he talking about? Is he serious? Is he for real? I want to tell you something that I found out. A wild wolf can kill a vampire. Do you know what is he talking about? I don't want to be a vampire anymore. I want to be a werewolf. Oh, my gosh. He's talking about vampires and werewolves right now. Yeah, yeah, serious about this, right? Okay, so look, we could have kept on going. It's like three minutes long. A lot of material there, Rick. If this stuff isn't already making up people's minds though, is this just for fun? Is it a fun campaign stunt or does this get to the 200,000 people the Genie mentioned? Well, yeah, certainly that's a target group. These are governor Kemp voters who did not vote for Herschel Walker. And likely didn't vote for Warnock either. So yeah, they would be in play probably for Republicans only. So can you get them out and can you convince them to vote for Herschel Walker is the attempt. But look, as I said, these are the kinds of things that were tested in that ad tested. I use that in quotation marks. We're pretty bad faux pas, right? And what's really interesting is there are faux pas to all of us. But I don't think Herschel Walker thought they were faux pas. I mean, maybe there was some deep meaning and being a werewolf, I don't know. Well, that's when he was really starting to really come out in full character on an ad lib at the podium, right? Jeannie, this was, I think Rick is right here. He thought he was starting to hit his stride at this point, and now it's the target of quite a little advertisement here. Well, as you know, Joe, I loved this ad because, you know, we had been on the Eric a few weeks ago and every once in a while you would say, hey, Jeannie, can you interpret what walker is sick? And I was at a loss of words. I could have been in that focus group saying, what the heck? I won't say the other word. What the heck is he talking about? Because I could not make any sense of it. So I think the ad is incredibly not just funny, but it's incredibly effective because it's where many voters find themselves because you're hard pressed to understand what he is talking about. And again, it underscores the issue. He is not fit for this office as Obama said he may be a great football player, but being great at football doesn't mean you would be a great U.S. senator for the state of Georgia. I don't know if we have enough time for this next one. Herschel Walker on the Dan Patrick show, sometimes it's not funny the things that he's saying. Listen to this. I talk about the Russian roulette people. Are you trying to kill yourself? I know, that's not, 'cause that's against what I believe in. I said, what it was, if you came to my house and said, you want to challenge me or something. And you know, everybody, everybody always want to challenge me. Everybody want a child with me. It's like, why? I say, okay, if you want to challenge me, you're tough enough. Let me see you pull this here. Pull this trigger here. Put a bullet in and people are like, you're crazy. I would take it and put it to my head and snap it. You're trying to kill yourself and no. And I don't know whether I'm just blessed, but

"Week we have the runoff election for that Senate seat in Georgia. And they're spending a lot of money on media. And this is how some of the incumbent Raphael Warnock is spending his in trying to take on Herschel Walker. Do you ever watch a stupid movie late at night? Hoping to get better, don't get better, but keep watching anyway. 'cause the other night the other night I was watching this movie. I was watching this movie called fright night treat night in some kind of night, but it was about vampires. I don't know if you knew that cool people. What the hell was he talking about? That was 20 seconds of a long ad that Raphael Warnock is running down in Georgia. And for those of you on radio, what they have is a split screen with people listening on headphones this sort of rolling their eyes and shaking their heads. Not understanding exactly why he is talking about what he's talking about. Back with us now, our Bloomberg political intruders, Rick Davis, a stone court capital, and Jeannie Chan xeno of university. So Rick, take us into this election from your point of view. What do we know about it? It's been a very short one because they shortened up the time for the runoff. Do we know anything about where these two candidates stand in terms of polls? Yeah, there are a couple of polls banging around out there, AARP came out with one last week that showed a 51 47 race with Warnock on top. I saw one this weekend from Republicans that said 47 47 tie. The bottom line is it's a dead heat. And so turnout is going to matter a great deal. The shortness may be good for turnout, which is going to be really key for both of these candidates. But I think the real secret here is can governor Kemp turn out any part of the 200,000 votes that he got that did not vote for Herschel Walker. This is the biggest group of swing voters in this race if you want to call them that. And his attempts to do that right now are pretty significant. And we should note that early voting started in Georgia over the weekend, and it really picks up today, but already they had about 200,000 people vote over the weekend in certain areas and this early voting runs through Friday. And what's so interesting about this runoff is that under Georgia's new voting law, you can not register new voters. So these two campaigns are really going after the voters who are already registered and the real persuadables there are the 203,000 voters who split their ticket in November. And so to Rick's point, you know, Brian Kemp is out there trying to persuade those voters to go out and also, you know, you see Warnock doing the same thing in both trying to pull over a very small patch of voters because most people have made up their minds. And you know, just speaking of those ads, we've seen about $25 million spent by Democrats since November 9th, and about 16 million by Republicans. And by some estimations that's because the outcome of this matters a little bit more to Democrats than it does to Republicans at this point. It's not going to decide power in the Senate, but it would give Democrats real breathing room that they've long desired in the Senate if they could hold on to this seat. But it really is going to be a battle about turnout and you see Warnock out there talking about competence and then you see Kemp out there saying we've got to stop Joe Biden and it's going to be again a question of who wants to do what and who's willing to get out again in just what an 8 or 9 days from now. Rick jeanie says it matters more to Democrats. Why does it matter to Democrats? They've got a majority with the vice president voting with them on a 50 50 split. Does it matter a lot whether it's 51 49 or 50 50? Well, they've had a lot of trouble in the United States Senate with that 50 50 split. And the reality is they still have Manchin and they still have cinema. Who has thwarted some of their big spending plans in the United States Senate. So sure, if they can get an extra vote into the margins there, then they can offset some of the exposure that they have with those two senators who really have been much more difficult for the Democrats than any one Republican in the United States Senate. So sure. This matters to them probably a lot more than it matters to Republicans. So Gina, you're a political science. I've got a question now from a viewer that I think is a quite interesting question. It's basically this, how can a pastor in Georgia actually be tied or close to tide with a man who has his tracker? I won't go through all the things that the viewer describes. Why doesn't the religious vote in Georgia just rush over to Raphael Warnock and away from Herschel Walker? Well, you know, I think, you know, I was just thinking about the issue of abortion in the exit polls in November, it showed that was the second most important issue on voters minds. The Georgia Supreme Court came in the other day and reinstated the 6 week ban and on an issue like abortion, religious voters will be inclined to side with a Republican, particularly someone like walker who claims he is going to respect the right to life versus Warnock, who has a different view on the issue of choice. And so one issue like that that's critically important can explain that to a certain extent, but I think the viewer is right. That is a real big challenge and it has been for Republicans as they get candidates out there like walker who have issues and regarding character flaws that have been become a big issue in this election cycle. So we'll have to see what happens in 8 or 9 days. Thank you so much, so I'm looking for Rick Davis of stone core capital and Genie Chan xeno of iona university.

"Away from politics these days, even when it comes to dinner parties at Mar-a-Lago and who gets invited to take us through this really infamous now dinner party that former president Trump had welcomed Bloomberg political contributors. Rick Davis of stone court capital and Genie Shan Zeno of iona university. So Rick, I must say I knew who Ye formerly known as Kanye West. I knew who he was. I'm not sure I knew who Nick Fuentes was. But what is the deal here? Why would the former president have dinner with somebody who I guess is an avowed anti semite? Well, he first of all, let's start with yay because yay was in the Oval Office as an anti semite and caused quite a bit of ruckus at the time. But obviously Donald Trump wasn't put off by that because he invites him again to Mar-a-Lago as a presidential candidate, which is even more stunning after all the problems that yay has gotten himself into. And claims did not know that Nick Fuentes avowed Nazi sympathizer, white nationalist, anti semite. I mean, we could go through the list, right? Everything we don't like about people in this category. And he shows up at dinner. What kind of staffing is that? He's a presidential candidate and he doesn't know who he's having dinner with, which really is an indictment of his own sort of self discipline. But this guy, Nick viente, I mean, he really showed up on the scene during the Charlottesville riots that were fomented by Nazi sympathizers and he's got his own TV show. He's quite a celebrity in what is considered the underbelly of evil. And in the reality is Donald Trump should have been running away from this, but not trying to explain about, oh my God, the guy was impressive and but I didn't even know he was coming to see me and I didn't know who he was. I mean, all these protestations seem pretty hollow. You want to pile on? I want to pile on. You know, vile is the right word. And not only should Donald Trump have been running away from him, but so should the Republican Party, because David, while you may not know who Nick Fuentes says, you know, very prominent members of the Republican Party do. And that includes Marjorie Taylor Greene that includes Paul gosar, who spoke before his group, and there has been almost deafening silence from the GOP on this. We had the ambassador to former U.S. ambassador to Israel did speak out and strongly condemn this to his credit. As did Chris Christie, maybe we will hear others. This is a nightmare for the GOP, because as all these lawmakers return to D.C. this week, what they are being asked about is not about their plans to combat inflation, not about their plans in terms of oversight of the Biden administration or what they want to do in the coming term. They are being asked about Donald Trump courting anti semites. And again, if you look up Nick Fuentes and hear what he had to say as Rick mentioned, starting from Charlottesville all the way through to today, that is vile hardly describes it. And I think my favorite part of the reports out of this was that Kanye West or yay as you guys call him, he has decided he has run for president and actually asked Donald Trump to be his vice presidential running mate which set Donald Trump off apparently. So nothing worse for Donald Trump than that. And of course, he then took to truth social to disavow knowing anything about Nick Fuentes. Okay, so this is a pretty ripe story. Obviously, but Rick, I wonder whether the bigger story and an adverse story potentially for the former president actually came out of the 11th circuit Court of Appeals and a couple of judges who, in fact, Donald Trump appointed. That's right. The special prosecutor Jack Smith had quite a holiday. Basically going to the 11th circuit and saying, you know, this special master that was appointed to really get in the way of an ongoing investigation was really abnormal. The judge at the 11th circuit asked the Trump lawyers a couple of questions as to what their rationale is for defending it. They couldn't even answer the questions. Most lawyers I've talked to have an expectation that the special master will be thrown out this week before some deadlines that are starting to come into play. And that may clear the opening for an indictment to Donald Trump before the end of the year. Yeah, it was a very bad week for Donald Trump legally. You know, you had the Supreme Court saying he must turn over his tax records. You have the continuing investigations. And then of course, as you were just talking about this 11 circuit hearing, which was very bad news for the Trump administrator for Trump's candidacy and also for what he is facing from the DoJ because it looks like now they will be able to investigate and continue their investigation into the classified documents at Mar-a-Lago without being held back by this special master. And so if Donald Trump thought that announcing his candidacy early was going to make it difficult for the DoJ with the appointment of a special prosecutor and also with a pending decision out of the 11th circuit, these are both bad signs and we don't know what the DoJ does with this, but they are, you know, it could be that they do decide at some point in the new year to prosecute and Donald Trump's announcement doesn't seem like it offended that off at all. And of course he's still got competitors in the GOP who look like they are thinking of announcing to run for president as well. So if you thought he was going to put them off, neither of those tactics succeeded for Donald Trump. Okay, I am happy to say that our political communities, Rick Davis, a stone core capital on Jeannie Chan xana of university, will stay with us as we're going to take up the question of that runoff election coming up next week in Georgia, which will decide is it 50 50 or 51 49

Trump Spiritual Adviser Says 'He's Like an Elementary Schoolchild'
"Trump standing at the end of the table, he's got Franklin. All of mine are well behind. Ben Carson lime and I put Sam in Rodrigo's dinner by. He said he was scared of the same man. I said, good. I'm gonna put him right in front of your nose, and I did. And Donald Trump stands up and he says James. And Carson said he wouldn't endorse me. You know why we're here? Endorsement, let's talk to you. Tell him talk to you in our games. Do you remember that? I told Ben, I don't talk to anybody 15 minutes. He said, James, how long did we talk two hours? I said, no, sir, we talked an hour and a half. And I might add that so long as you've been quiet, your entire life. Hey, he died laughing and everybody else did. The man started calling him on his cell phone. And then he started asking me to call him him and for 5 years he took every single column. Sometimes two or three a day. You say, well, what were they? Many times they were encouraging. As he told Rick Perry said he just started to preach it. And he said, and then he just prays, Rick. He said, it's amazing. He said, you never want anything. Make sure to think he does. He wants God's will. He called me for marine one to tell me that he was sitting there having that conversation with Trump. Okay, he heard you can always heed. Everything you wanted him to hear. Every single thing you have a prayed for him to hear. Came through these lips, got straight into his face. And with the same force you've heard me talking to you, I spoke it to him. Sir, you act like a little element for school, child, and you shoot yourself in the foot every morning when you get up and open your mouth. The more you keep your mouth closed, the more successful you're gonna be. You say, well, that didn't work very well, did it?
Senator Josh Hawley Discusses the Future of Senate Leadership
"Now is senator Josh hawley, one of the few fighters in the U.S. Senate, and I am so happy and thrilled that senator hawley's influence will be increasing because JD Vance is going to the U.S. Senate senator Holly, how you doing? I'm doing great, Charlie. Thanks for having me. I know you and I are both on the ground with JD Vance. I wish we would make Blake masters as well, but sending JD is a big deal. Thank you. And thank you for all your help with that. Let me just kind of start with the leadership election or selection I should say yesterday. Tell us what you can without breaching any confidentiality of what happened behind closed doors with what looks like now senator McConnell is going to be continued leader of the Senate minority. Well, listen, I'll just tell you what my position has been, which is that I voted for new leadership. I said before the election, Charlie, that I wasn't going to support to Mitch McConnell for leader. I don't think that he has led the party in a good direction. I think the results of this last election make that clear. And I think we need a different direction clear. I mean, if you look at this last election and you say, oh, everything's fine. It's just fine, you know? We don't need to make any changes. I just say, if you're a Republican, you know, you're delusional. Particularly if you're one of these D.C. Republicans that didn't give the candidates anything to run on, that didn't actually put forward a coherent agenda. The basically just set off Biden sucks. He's no good vote for us. You know what we learned out of this election is that independent voters, they actually want you to come out and fight for them. They actually want you to come be on their side. It's not enough to say it's our turn. You have to go show them that you're willing to fight for them. And I don't think Senate leadership has done that. So Charlie, I voted no and you know, I urged for there to be new leadership, and I asked both of the guys who were running, which was Mitch McConnell and Rick Scott from Florida. I asked both of them, what are you going to do to put forward an agenda that will actually deliver for the American people, not just talk, not just do press appearances, but what are you going to do that will actually deliver?
Who Should Donald Trump Pick As a Running Mate?
"Heard you were at Mar-a-Lago for president Trump's big announcement on Tuesday. What are your thoughts? What are your thoughts, especially who do you think he will or should pick for his VP running mate this time around? Well, I have to say watching him yesterday only confirmed to me that this nomination is his. And anyone, including Rick desantis, foolish enough. Did I say Rick desantis? Ron. Yeah. I can't believe I said that. Ron DeSantis. Anybody foolish enough to challenge him? I think we'll get crushed. We'll get bruised and could end their political career. I don't say that as a threat. I think that's a reality. I think if you have wisdom, you know that so many people in this country aren't just behind Trump, but love Trump for where he brought us as a nation, I mean, to have three Supreme Court Justices confirmed to overturn roe V wade to have us energy independent to have the economy booming. I mean, of course he made mistakes, but generally speaking, it was he really is owed, I think, our fidelity for this season in the GOP. So I think if desantis is smart, he would make a deal before anything to be the VP nomination or at least try to get that. But I think loyalty to Trump is going to be very big. And I think it's easy to talk, but I honestly think that at the end of the day, anybody who goes up against him would be sorry, in a sense, I think that they have to be very careful because I just think so many people are so loyal to him. And rightfully. So at Mar-a-Lago, I was reminded as he spoke of just in a sense of how he gave so many people hope at a time that there was little hope and I really think to be able to get out of the ditch in which we find ourselves and to go back to what things were like before COVID, but I honestly think he's the guy and you know maybe desantis maybe Carrie Lake, but it'll be very interesting.
Where's the Talent on Our Side? Joe and Victoria Weigh In
"So big issue we've discussed, where's the talent on our side? The big, big brains. And I don't want to I'm looking. You know, it's not just the last four years of Trump. I would say from the aughts onwards, we didn't have the gingrich's, the bakers. We didn't have the people who were, you know, the good Machiavelli's of the right inside the building. Did we not cultivate them? Did they all go off into the private sector? Give us explanations. Well, the bush people don't cultivate new talent. They're not interested in it. They don't care about it because it's all about them. It's a network. That's why when Jeb Bush ran in 2016 and that famous, okay, you can applaud now. That's because that was a sense of entitlement. And they surrounded themselves with the same players, the same tired old people who didn't understand what's changing in American politics. There are great talented people out there. We just haven't done a very good job of cultivating them. And again, I blame ronna mcdaniel. I believe the blame Rick Scott. There's all kinds of wonderful talented people. The guy from Wisconsin, who was the first chief of staff for president Trump. Ryan. Brian's priebus. What did they do to bring in great new brains? What they did? They went and got the old people from the Republican national quote to quote on exactly this issue, just to give it a little bit of a flavor a little bit of color. I think it was some rag Vanity Fair or something. Bannon gave an interview about the first four weeks in The White House, and he actually used this phrase when we needed 4000 positions filled. Presidential appointments. He said, I sat down with reince and we, quote, made a drug deal with the RNC to fill those positions. And it's really quite remarkable that we achieved what we did, given the fact that the old schlep of the skull and crossbones and all the good old boys filled those positions. They went and found every rhino they could, and president Trump had a rhino in charge.
Republicans Find Their Way Through Tough Conversations
"More to glory, America, bonjour, high candidate who you're alive inside the beltway on this Thursday I'll be on special report tonight on the panel with Brett bear talking about the house finally being called for the Republicans. Mitch McConnell being returned to lead the GOP Senate. One of his colleagues, Jim Langford, just won a thunderous reelection for another 6 years. I'm not sure if at the sentence or a big win. I know you want to serve the people of Oklahoma. Welcome back, senator lankford. How are you? I'm doing very well. Good morning. Yeah, by the way, it's a bit of a boat. It's a victory and a sentence as well. So I'm very glad for you. I was at a national Republican senatorial committee event, probably a year and a half ago with you and your wonderful wife and with Rick Scott and everyone. You know, Republican senators may have disagreements. But they actually, they don't have fisticuffs. I tried to explain that in the first hour I'd like you to expand on that. Any partnership. And I've run two law firms with more than 20 partners. And they disagree. And then they get that they have a vote in the end. You go along with what the vote is. Is that the way the Senate Republican caucus will work? That is the way that it works actually. There's always frustration. We obviously underperform what we thought we would during the elections last week. So there's a need for a very serious conversation about where we're going. How we communicating the issues, what are the key things that we're actually trying to be able to promote and put out there. Those are hard conversations that need to have and we spent hours Monday and Tuesday going through some very Frank conversations on that as we should.
McConnell reelected Senate GOP leader; Scott's bid rejected
"Mitch McConnell will be back as the Republican Senate leader amid a party in fighting I'm not going anywhere For the first time in 15 years as leader McConnell faced a challenge but Republicans reelected him over Rick Scott I'm pretty proud of 37 to ten Those who voted against McConnell included allies of Donald Trump who encouraged Scott to confront McConnell There has been public GOP unrest in both chambers of Congress after a disappointing midterm showing but the vote leaves McConnell poised to become the Senate's longest serving leader next year Sagar Meghani Washington
GOP Sen. Scott mounts long-shot bid to unseat McConnell
"Following the midterms both parties in the Senate are gearing up for the new year with Democrats remaining in the majority majority leader Chuck Schumer is celebrating the midterm results We had a great happy and spirited discussion in our caucus Democrats are ready and eager and united For the Republicans Florida's Rick Scott is mounting a long shot bid to unseat the minority leader Mitch McConnell I have the votes I will be elected The only issue is whether we do it sooner or later Scott's unexpected challenge to McConnell comes as Republicans are wrestling over a lackluster performance in the midterms when the party out of power historically sees significant gains Ed Donahue Washington
Fixing the Election Process
"You know, we've been griping about Katie Hobbs. Katie Hobbs is in the battle for the governor's race in Arizona and Carrie Lake we all think is a rockstar and we've heard about the shenanigans that hit seemingly taken place in Arizona that race has yet to be resolved. So we'll keep you abreast of that. But I have heard a lot of people talking about Katie Hobbs and as well they should. She's incompetent. She's over the elections, the Secretary of State there. So she's over the elections process, no doubt about it. But I just before I go back to this issue with how then governor Rick Scott, and then subsequently, governor Ron DeSantis got our election system safe and secure and got us to a place where literally at 7 8 p.m. at night on election day we're like, okay, we have nothing else to talk about here in Florida because things wrap up so quickly. Marco Rubio tweeted out earlier today and I retweeted it, you can follow me on Twitter or any place social media, the Carl Jackson show that is the Carl Jackson show. But he tweeted out, listen, we have 7 and a half million voters here in the state of Florida. We wrap up our elections in about 5 hours. You know, basically what's up with the people and I'm paraphrasing at this point 'cause I'm not looking at his tweet directly. What's up with the people? What's up with the states that have 2 million voters and can't get it done? It takes days.
Caruso and Bass Locked in Tight LA Mayoral Race
"They were flying Rick Caruso banners over the stadium. We don't know that yet, we don't know the results, right? The closest race of the night last night. Nationally was here in Los Angeles for mayor. And I'm sorry. With science, Caruso, just standing above the overpass. I don't know who he is, but they pay us these money. That's what I mean. This is like talk about like this billionaire, right? Businessman with no experience. How could that possibly go wrong? But just the true a ton of money at this race. I mean, you will see. This is why. By the way, I get it. I probably see more of the city than most people because I ride my bike over the whole city, you know, pretty much every week. I hate the homeless problem too. I want to see it cleaned up too. The fact is Rick Caruso is not going to do anything about it. He could have spent all that money to do something about it, but it's just him saying I'm going to build, build, build, well, he's going to run up against the same problems everyone else has. Everyone will vote not to have that housing in their neighborhood. I mean, Karen Bass has been working at this problem on the state local federal level for a long time. It is a complex problem that needs complex solution. It's not that simple. There is a wonderful tiny home community near Oxnard in the one 70 right there by the new development by the mall there with the new regal cinemas. I think they have a hundred units there and it's brand new. They're all multi colored and obviously whoever wins you'd like to see more of those. But yeah, running inexperienced businessmen, not a great play. It was a Republican until a second ago, right? I mean, anyway, I'm still praying for our friend Karen Bass,
Gov. Ron DeSantis: More Republicans Than Democrats Registered in FL
"You managed to you and managed to with your policies and so forth I mean completely change things in four years I mean four years ago you won by what 50,000 votes or so Yeah so if you look back before I became governor the marquee race each every two years Rick Scott 2010 governor Obama 2012 president Rick Scott reelection 14 Donald Trump in 16 and then me and 18 Those are all one point races or less And that was kind of the norm in Florida politics We had almost 300,000 more registered Democrats in Florida than Republicans When I got elected well today we have 306,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats had a lot of people come that don't affiliate with a party but are with us largely because they were refugees from COVID lockdowns and they came to the free state of Florida So this electorate is going to be the first electorate that we've ever had that has a Republican advantage at all We've never had more ours than these in Florida history and to have 306,000 in just a four year period That's almost a 600,000 registration shift in favor of Republicans We've never seen anything like that A lot of that's migration Mark but honestly if you look at the number of people that go from D to R in Florida versus R to D we are converting so many more Democrats to Republicans than vice versa It's not even funny particularly in a place like Miami dade county

Rick Santorum: Good Signs for Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania
"Is certainly in odds as favor, although at this race hasn't been put to bed by any stretch of the imagination. There's still very, very close. There's some good signs out there. Number one, the early voting. We have, we don't have early voting locations, so you can't vote in person early and Pennsylvania, but there is no excuses, absentee ballots, so you can request an absentee ballot and vote early. And what we've seen so far this year is that that number is dramatically down from 2020, more so than what would be typical of a difference between a presidential election year and a midterm election year. And so that's not good news for the Democrats Democrats on early votes back in 2020. We've got about 75 to 80% of the vote. And so the fact that that number is down substantially for them, they show indicate a lack of enthusiasm of Democrats, they probably don't have as good an election day turnout operation as Republicans do because Republicans count on day of voting. And so are more oriented to getting the people out on election day. We're Democrats count more on mail in voting. So that's a good sign for the ticket overall for congressional races, governors race, not just the Senate race. But this still is unfortunately in politics today in a state like Pennsylvania or many of these deeply divided states where it's very close. Sort of two camps and no one, everyone starts to brush aside the problems with the candidates as long as the candidate is pure. And that's the case of John fetterman. He's a pure progressive. And so the base of the Democratic Party is going to vote for him where he can do the job or not. As is the issue is he's not really seen as pure. He's not seen as a pennsylvanian. And that's really hampered him and his ability to sort of close the deal in Pennsylvania so it's still a very tight race.
Can Don Bolduc Take New Hampshire From Democrats?
"General, you know, full disclosure. I didn't think it could win and I told people that over and over again, I was for chuck Morrison the primary and then cotton slapped me around a little bit and said, the general's going to win and then Rick Scott said they're poor and money in New Hampshire. What happened? Well, you know, it's called hard work. It's called perseverance called never quitting. And that's the kind of campaign that we ran. You've got my voice. I just got over that. Whenever you go out and do 5, 6, 7 events a day, you get the voice. So we'll slow down and give you the chance. Take your time. Tell people about yourself because if anyone's listening in New Hampshire, general bulldog's going to make a great senator. Well, I feel that my whole life has been centered around public service, whether it was working as working on our family farm as a farmer and providing a public service of food, dairy products and other things to our community or a police officer in laconia or 33 plus year career in the military. Going from private to general, my whole life has been oriented on serving others.
How Inflation Is Hurting Agriculture
"Now, senator, the one thing we haven't talked about, Wisconsin is a huge agricultural state. And I often forget to talk to candidates about agriculture and I apologize to my farming friends out there. Why does inflation doing to dairy and farming generally? It's crushing them. I mean, when you take a look at the just the cost of fertilizer skyrocket. So dairy farmer does not get the benefit of the increasing milk prices at the grocery store. Somewhere, those increasing prices are going some of the somebody else's pockets. So no, dairy farmers, the farmers are always Wisconsin, are struggling. As you just in general, inflation crushes everybody. It destabilizes the economy. That's why it's so easy to slip into stagflation. You have rising prices and it just crushes economic activity, resulting in what we just saw the last few quarters, negative economic growth, and we have to recognize growing our economy as the number one component of the solution to get us out from underneath this massive debt load. But it's amazing what Democrats have done in such a short period of time that just destroying our economy, they're destroying people's savings accounts. Destroying people's retirement, the destroying our country. They have to be stopped. They need to be defeated.
Ron Johnson Makes Case for Reelection in Wisconsin
"Doctor Oz not only won last night, so did senator Ron Johnson Mandela Barnes is more radical than John fetterman. John fetterman lied about all of his previous positions. I wonder if Mandela Barnes is trying the same thing. Ron Johnson joins us now. Good morning, senator. How goes the effort up north? Good morning, Hugh and yes, he is lying about everything. That's all Democrats have, they can't descend 40 year high inflation record gas prices, skyrocketing crime, deadly drugs flowing through our open border. They've got nothing other than lies and character assassination and they have no problem doing it, by the way. So just pointing about our politics is the left has no problem lying through their teeth and of course we have the media amplifying their lives. I've never seen a combined arms campaign of the media of the DNC and democratic candidates fail so miserably, though, senator, because you can't tell people that inflation isn't real and you can't warn them, you can't not warn them about crime. Let's start with crime. Because I understand in Wisconsin, it is a huge issue. It is from 2019 to 2021 statewide murders are up 70%. You may walk the same time frame 93%. We're on phase two have another record number of murders in Milwaukee. Carjackings are way up. And of course, we just witnessed the trial of Christmas prayed murderer that is now in the hands of the jury, hopefully to decide quickly. But of course, that's spilled over me. That was the result of low bail no bail policy. That guy should not have been out on bail. Those 6 people should be alive today. They'll 60 people should not have ever been injured, but that is exactly the kind of policies that the radical left is pushing on society and making society and our neighborhoods far less safe.
Can Republicans Pick up Washington State's Senate Seat?
"Washington state votes by paper. It is, everyone gets mailed a ballot. I've never liked the system. I don't trust the system. It helps Democrats. But our friend Tiffany smiley may be your best man. Yeah. What do you think? I think she's got a shot. I mean, Tiffany has doubled the fundraising of patty Murray who's been there 36 years. Patty Murray is just not likeable. I mean, who likes patty Murray? She's not nice to anybody. And so I think unfortunately for patty Murray, like Hassan and New Hampshire, they know her. They don't like her. And Tiffany is a great candidate. I think she has a real shot the last poll I saw she was only down a couple. I think it's going to be a good election night for us. What we're seeing with the early ballots is it's really a good year for us in contrast to my race and 18. It was a bad year for us. It's a good year for us. We're going to have a better turnout. So if you're down a couple, you got a really good chance of winning.
How John Fetterman's Debate Performance Hurt the Democrats
"Senator from Florida chairman of the national Republican senatorial committee is here to run down the races for us and senator Scott. Let me begin by applauding you. You patiently plotted through a withering barrage of consultant criticism because if you weren't using them during the summer and now the Republicans are set to regain the majority in the United States Senate and it's because of your leadership. So thank you. You've done a great job. Are you very nice, but we've got great candidates. They run great races. You look at their debate. All of them have done a great job in their debates. And Biden's not gotten any better. And the democratic candidates have to defend the Biden policies, and they're not defensible. Let me begin by saying, I'm going to put in the win column. Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and which content. I'm going to talk to senator Johnson a little bit. We all saw last night's meltdown by John fetterman. JD was on yesterday. He's winning comfortably in North Carolina, Ted bud's winning comfortably. Question about that. Do you believe that John fetterman's performance last night hurt Democrats everywhere? Because I do. Oh, absolutely. I think this is what they've done. They've come across as radical candidates. They've come across as half of the tribe. They can't defend Biden's policies. They try to change their policies and act like they're somehow bipartisan, middle of the road, things like that. And if everyone's just actually the least example, I mean, he took it chase the position on fracking change his position abortion changes position on crime, changes position on basically everything they ask. And so I think that's what people see it. And that one was a significant national people a lot of people watch that. And what they're seeing is a Democrat. I mean, they don't have a, they don't have, they don't have anything. There's nothing that they can brag about. I
ABC News: The Path to Republican Victory Is Through Arizona
"According to ABC's Rick Klein and Jonathan Carl yesterday, the path to Republican victory might just come right through here in Arizona with a Blake masters victory. Yeah, John, this poll with ipsos shows that both parties have their areas of strength, but Republicans are starting to open up pretty open up a pretty significant gap on some of the biggest issues that motivate voters, inflation, crime, issues around the economy, double digit plus gap. That's what the campaign has been about. That's what the ads have been focused on. Now, Democrats have their issues as well. They have yawning advantages on things like gun violence, abortion, climate change, but the problem for them, John, is that those aren't the issues that are motivating voters first and foremost. Either in polls or talking to voters, it's those issues around the economy. And if this campaign is about inflation, high prices about crime, Republicans have a big, big advantage. Okay, and here in Arizona, a senator Mark Kelly, the Democrat, obviously running against Blake masters, tight race, you have been saying that this could come down to something you're calling McCain Democrats. Yeah, and John, this is kind of a microcosm of what we've seen around the country. Keep in mind that right here, this used to be red territory. Maricopa County fastest growing county in the country. John McCain won right here in 2016 last time he's on the ballot by 15 points. Fast forward just four years though, Mark Kelly and Joe Biden both win this state. Biden winning by barely 10,000 votes. One of the biggest upsets of the election cycle. So the battle right now, it's over suburban voters. It's over new voters in this fast growing county is over Latino voters. These are the trends you're seeing everywhere, and this drop voters, people that for decades voted Republican now have been voting Democrat where they land almost certainly determines where Arizona lands. And if you want to see why that matters, John, take a look at this. If just this one Senate seat flips, if Blake masters is able to beat Mark Kelly in a few weeks, Republicans go from a four in ten chance to an 8 in ten chance to take the Senate.

But there's a water tower that says like the official farm for turkeys may get pardoned by the president and then it was like turkey transport which was the official transportation method for turkeys that may get pardoned and even like the turkey pen was like holding turkeys for pardon since like eighteen. Seventy years like so so. There's just all these visual like like signs like if these official places just kind of reiterating. The absurdity of the entire turkey pardoning process.

It seems that Two episodes is like a coincidence but six episodes seems like a trend. Here we have gotten one inter dimensional cable type clip in every episode. This season this episode being no exception as as jerry is eating thanksgiving dinner at the table he has the tv on. And he is watching. A carly a charlie kaufman reboot of wizard of oz. there's there's some dialogue in the background like saying that one of you wants courage which is like a personality trait the other two one actual human organs or something like that and then the man is typing and Yeah like like adaptation like that movie adaptation with nicholas cage.

"What what do you think about. The the critique seen about rick and morty with with the seasons specifically with starting with like a conceit and in doing the conceit poorly i've seen also mentioned about heist movies. Do you The the the critique for this episode was they started with national treasurer and like the. It wasn't like it was is poor commentary on Like a parody or spoof of national treasure. Do you think that was the point of of this national treasure because they did have an no or at the end with the the crypt of the new world. whatever. I don't think that was the driving force behind it. Like if they had set out to do a national treasure episode. I think. I think it would have looked a lot different. It would have been much more high. St and things like that. But i mean the movie. National treasure is just an american themed heist. Right like that's and they've they've they've done a heist episode. They've done I mean they've done some other episodes like that. So i i. I don't know that. That was the goal here i think the and honestly there's a part of me when i started i was like are they gonna do like a pickle rick thing like is he going to be a turkey in episode like is that is that oh look at me. I turned myself in a turkey turkey. Rick woo like so. I i think they were able to balance that well where they had the turkey stuff up front and then they kind of moved away from that brought in the superhuman turkey. People at the end just really playing with those different types of turkey's throughout.

Like sometimes it feels a little bit rushed Because there is so much going on there's action sequences. They're they're moving the story along very quickly and they only have about twenty two minutes to to get everything in I feel like. I don't get to fully appreciate these episodes the first time i watched them. I think i think i have to. It does take a couple of times to to catch some of the subtle jokes and other things that that seems. Just be going by too quickly yet. You're right you're right. You're right about that it's i. I can't recall feeling this way in earlier seasons. And i'm not saying that that ruler seasons are better. Even though i enjoy more will always say is that i. It feels like there's a lot of starting one way till the break and then after the break going a completely different way I this episode felt for the most part kind of consistent with that they it started with turkey's ends with turkey's there is a consistency there. But it does. It does feel rushed. Were they want to get to the next. The next part of the journey much quicker than than maybe feels like they've built like they flush it out enough. I will say that There when with all these episodes in season five the first time we watch them. I am always like okay. What is what i enjoyed. it sure. What is actually happening here.

Which of course is is the loophole that rick exploits in this episode breaking any number of federal crimes and the finagling his way into being pardoned by the president by assuming the role of the turkey in turkey and so so the first president to do that was fdr then You also has no. I if this says the national thanksgiving turkey presentation is a ceremony that takes place at the white house every year. Shortly before thanksgiving The president is presented with a live domestic turkey by the national turkey federation usually males of the broad breasted white variety. The early years also included a joint presentation with poultry egge national board. That's that's for you fun fest. Fun factory folks at home It does date back to the nineteen forties however those turkeys were usually slaughtered and eaten with some exceptions prior to the nineteen seventies. So from one thousand nine hundred forty to the seventy s. they just eat them turkeys. They're like they've they've they've they would present the burnaby like sir. This is the turkey that you're going to eat later. Newbie be like alright. And then and then in the seventies they started to spare the turkey and the actual pardoning of the turkeys with the bush presidency And has carried on since then. Okay okay so it's basically a tradition like any other in the us where it starts very very savage and and we're we kill lots of things and eventually were like no. This is a fun thing.

I i think this this season's gonna run september right Yeah if the math is correct. So so yeah. So if you're going to do a thanksgiving episode and you ha i. I like the ideal. I like the absurdity of the turkey. Pardon and as as like an idea in general and so for them to run with that. I i don't mind necessarily that. It's not a thanksgiving time of year. And i think now so. Many people rewatch episodes throughout the year. It could in fact be something. A thanks giving. Let's watch the thanksgiving rick. And morty episode. Just like just like the thanksgiving charlie brown episodes right like you. Just go back and you watch well. I think there's a there is a certain piece of how things become tradition and how things become watched over and over again that you can't you can't force it other otherwise it it. It doesn't has to take a life of its own. Same thing with Movies that have achieved cult status. Where where like john.

I if an episode or a movie sets out to be that kind of tradition. I don't think. I don't think it gets to the the same the same status. I don't think i don't think it does lay day. Nobody watches that on independence day. I don't know that's true. I'm sure somebody watches it. Somebody that's like really into fx or something like probably watches it. But or the or the usa network. I don't know they probably watched the cable cut version of it I watch i watch it I think that weekend down at the theaters. Here's a here's the long-term here's a long-term bet brandon will adult swim. Rerun this episode in the third week of november this year. Oh shit Yes i don't think they'll do this one specifically. I don't think the it'll be themed after this episode. But i think it will play only because adult swim plays rick morgan marathons every other day nonstop right. I don't know. I don't know maybe they will. Maybe what do you think about turkey pardons. But how do you feel about the tradition of pardoning a turkey in the united states. I didn't put this in the the read it the discussion post stuff but i think it is a very very strange.

Podcast as where they actually play. dnd live or prerecorded for an audience. And you get to watch them. Play in in this case. Playing the rick and morty verse dungeons and dragons or i guess the other way round dungeons and dragons verse. Rick and morty set. So so this is what they're playing They have written by patrick rothfusz in illustrated by troy little. I think some like that And little was on the was on the was in there. Playing he may have been the dm But i but. I know like no jim was in there. Think jim's was was okay. Okay we we will the game. We wanted to play we. We asked folks if they wanted to play.

"Who who they have on on the panel. Dan harmon chalk. Chris burnell and spencer grammer hosted by brandon johnson. That's right that's right and Yeah was it was. It was okay right. This by far wasn't the the worst panel that we've seen from the rick. And morty gang The thing that i continually go back to. They had some conversations about stuff throughout season five. They didn't talk about platina at all but they did. They talked about all the other episodes leading up to episode five Not a whole lot of substance or some kind of interesting bits. The the question about them focusing more on the family in these episodes i thought was felt felt fairly pertinent until this latest episode but But my thing is is is these these panels have to the. They should say something. They should have some kind of content for us to like. Look forward to right. That's that's what you go to comic con. Four that's what you go to panels for you go to like you hear about how the writing is are all this type of stuff and then they treat you with with behind the scenes or like sneak peeks of of stuff and that's not what we've seen from these these panels with the exception of They did show us the nimbus automatic. I think Last last year. Yeah but also rowlands never there anymore except for the special guests. Rick and morty at the end there's like a bug flying into my face credibly distracting it. I didn't. I didn't know if that was you being like yeah. No you're right responding thinking responding weird to your to your points no i. I thought that was very interesting. That you bring that up. The that rowland was not in the panel. Although rick and morty do appear at the end of the panel and there's a quick little conversation with rick and morty in character Just still images of the characters and then brennan johnson asking them a couple of questions So obviously like justin roy lind in some way involved in the panel but Not actually participating as himself Which is unfortunate love to love to hear from justin and see how he's doing so Yeah overall i. There are things that we miss in these panels. You don't get the fan questions you you But i mean. I appreciate all of them taking the time to do that. Yeah there were some funny comments from from some of the the cast members and things so if you did miss it good news. Everything is on youtube..

"Jerry maybe maybe during season three during the divorce season maybe before but definitely during the The divorce season just because like we. We started being like it or not. We are not assholes. Like rick we are. We are not that type of person. Jerry legitimate and loves his family even know. Maybe he doesn't do it right. Maybe maybe he messes up a lot but at the end of the day in the in his heart he still cares deeply about his family. And and that's that's not that's not a crappy trait to have rick i'd say is is. He loves his family too but he is so adamant against feeling those kind of emotions that the characters is so anti emotion showing sincerity. That he comes off as as the really just unapproachable. And and you wouldn't want that you'd want to jerry her life you wouldn't wanna rick old galilee. Yeah and sometimes that means you have to suffer through them talking about the fact that they have a podcast that they you know they. They don't know the songs to or the lyrics to like a whitney houston song or something. But you know it is what it is. It's it's fine. I i i find it interesting. In this episode that as the the mockery of jerry like reaches reaches a peak. It's actually rick kind of tries to defuse the situation and i are. Maybe we should you know. Get our check or whatever we should get out of here you can tell and i think the writers are are really intentional about this that you know there is a soft spot there in rick where he's like all right like yeah i. I don't like jerry. In general but even rick has a limit and so i think there. Is you know going back to season one and even like the divorce seasons. He's in three tight. Where like rick's like i'm i'm doing all this to get rid of jerry. I think something is happening. There's some sort of shift where rick has come around and he's at least accepting of jerry and maybe even even if he doesn't approve of jerry like he's he accepts him for who he is. Yeah jerry has shown in in the last couple of seasons that he cares about his family that he wants to do it right as it yet and he. He says stupid things and does stupid things but he still. He still cares The episode i lose that the title of it in my mind but the one where where he makes it jerry as less gravity and he starts and just happened in the background gravity any perfect and he sort any starts any starts floating and he goes through the whole thing and he's holding onto the jetliner and You know he he tells jerry he tells. Rick basically square off. You'll figure this out himself. We we've talked about this before each showing some kind of self sufficiency there and even at the end during there's a part of jerry that he stupid but he knows when rick says this is never going to happen again in jerry. Jones says ten four captain. And just pats him on the shoulder and walks off and jerry in rick. Has this kind of like moment. Be frowns but then he walks off. He doesn't eat respond back to that at all. So yeah there. There's a soft spot in an lane in the inside. The episode mentioned that as well that yeah. I like the big could find common ground and they could be some kind of friends in.

"Watched it once or twice. Yeah so we're i mean we'll we'll start from the very beginning a very good place to start With with a cold open where we see a whole bunch from from the trailers this. I mean the the trailers that we saw four season five at turns out a lot of of those trailers are encapsulated in this episode Rick is near death. he's he's dying there on some crystal floating planet. It shows all sorts of different iterations of rick. And morty i. I haven't had the time yet to fully like do the deep dive. What random like obscure versions of rick and morty are probably hidden in some of those crystals but doc and marty there i i'm absolutely But yeah so they they immediately have to take off like rick talks about being a silly silly man. And and so then. Morty is responsible for getting them out of there and in a moment win when all hope is lost. Morty morty calls jessica who else would call And has that final. You know just before death moment where he's like you know. I know time he never worked out between us. But i just want you to know your great and when she said hey let's hang out and watch a movie. Everything changes you know. That's that's very similar to to to my life right when when i I joined the air force in two thousand and one long longtime ago and The first phone call. I could make at basic training. I wasn't on my mom or my dad. You know it was. It was to my future wife chelsea which i mean at that time. She didn't want anything to do with me. Really so like who is this. who burnden. who's thrown away. I'm are barnyard like more. But the difference here is that That jessica wants to hang out with maury and gives him a reason to live That's the difference re. Yeah whereas reason live in this so he crash lands into the ocean. Which kicks off the the rest of the episode. Featuring mr nimbus mr nimby who comes over to the smith household to work on a peace treaty. And that that's bad as the core Conceit of the episode but then it goes off. Wei goes off in a a completely different direction and that a plot turns into the be plot is very subtle shift. Which i which i appreciate. Yeah i i. I found like in the past. We used to be able to really clearly differentiate in a plot and a b plot and we would use that sometimes to to frame our discussions about the episodes but in i couldn't really decide in this episode. What was a plot. What was a b plot. You seem to have sort of two things happening. Obviously the relationship. Between rick and mr nimbus and then there is the exploration of mortars relationship with jessica and also just tied into the mix the the new version of beth in nigeria. The now sex positive couple..

"It was really cool like i. I just moved here two months ago and then so now they have this and i just realized how weird it is to be so close to the epicenter of where they're going to be doing this type of publicity stuff your new man on the street. You're you're the guy who can you're the guy that knows how to get things and and and unfortunately you're the guy that any time there's anything special l. a. year. The one that's going to have to do it. Because i'm thousands of miles away but you know the second the second through those midwest pop ups out there. I'm your man. That's right. I got it. I got it a very cool. I don't know i'm upset. You didn't get to tried the pickle frosty because that's just that just sounds terrible but it of it. Well this is. It seems like we're destined not to try any of the pickle. Rick flavored anything right. Nah no pickle beverages for these podcast. No no the the miracle seltzer. We didn't get to try theirs. We didn't. I didn't get the try this pick rick frosty. It's it's not. It's not destined to happen. And i'm i think i'm okay with that You're you're probably better off for the last thing. I want to say the for folks who want to try the two drinks You know call up your participating wendy's see see see if the say if they are participating But it's going all the way till august twenty second and the reason this is an important date is because we have confirmation base off the press. Release that it is going to the end of season. Five which means there's not going to be a break. When in episodes for season five every week is going to be a new episode basically. Yeah that's that's pretty crazy. I i mean it's gonna keep us busy. I know that's for sure But you know it's good. It's good stuff it's good stuff. It's good stuff and we know. Now we know where we're in in the no you know before we move onto our last segment of semi news. I do wanna. I do wanna do. Brandon's read it posted the week. That's right host the week Do this and then sometimes forget. Because i'm too busy my life This one is from the geeta archer a four days ago. It's got eighteen thousand votes and it's a general discussion. It says does anyone else appreciate. How rick and morty treats the sexual abuse of men with seriousness and doesn't play it off as a joke and it has a picture of Mister jelly bean king jelly. Bean and morty Also jerry. Getting sexually assaulted by the titanic lady race but Yeah it within the comments or some good discussion about it and basically you know. I think one one comment mentions ya a giant jelly bean as treating it as it's weird that we're taking it seriously. Yeah that's not treating it as a joke. Ca giant jelly bean jelly but like rick immediately recognizing signs the warning signs and then and then taking cam out so anyways..

"In the show it's still it's still relates and it still but it's a new fun and exciting journey with them so also. The show is more than happy to do. Its own they're going to. They're going to sign the talbert persons bids probably going to be totally different than the comic different universes. But i feel like that's also like a part of the appeal. I think about the star. Wars books became out before java. The hut was shown where job the hot lake was. Very humanoid alien. I think that's a big part of the charm is if you read the spin off comics i want you to get a little weirdness under like absolute just being like okay. They're not going to do this. There's no way they're going to do this. Let's let's do this. Which is which is a lot of fun. I mean they'll they could never they don't do because the thing is like a mini series is almost like having a movie in having a rick. And morty movie called lake rick's new hat is really stupid. And that doesn't something show can do. The show tells the show is perfect but but it is like but beyond all like a science fiction sitcom so we'll tell self contained but like slightly longer arcs. Say this to another big part of the comic. That's very appealing for me. And i know alex to is that we're doing stuff in it. That is very comic book specific their stuff in it. We're doing and even if the show the story they couldn't tell it the way the comic is telling now we're doing some real specific comic art stuff like what you're talking about the committee and other things coming up. That are going to be a really really fun. I want that. I don't want to spoil. But it's it's gonna be real good can be real good. We gotta get the people out to the stores and purchasing these books like the hook with those little got for. Eureka morty fans. But they've got they've got to do it and but you know here's the thing Fair listener you have to you know to start doing your comic stores and ordering these things ahead of time because as you're talking about before we started recording Fred alex you were talking about the eh. the issue is being sold out number one being out everywhere. Does that does that does that little bit. I don't know. I don't know if berg person was sold out But it was okay is that how into how intimidating that like. What kind of pressure does that put on you for. You know issues to through seventeen. Assume at least goes centin. Oh yeah they're going to add nine more fred going. No it's definitely intimidating. I try honestly. I try to keep my head down and not look at any reviews or anything when that stuff's going on because unlike i've got stuff to do i can't i can't get in my own head about what someone else's thinking about it but i am fortunate though the people who were like. Hey this one's good and like oh thanks like someone will send me a link and be like this. Can't just let me know. No it is intimidating. Absolutely i feel good. I don't know mostly scripts done is. The last of most of them are don. I know it feels nice. Use like the reality. It is like the comic is selling out. Because fred's cover a so good and the title is so weird and people love like rick. And morty once they start buying. it'll feel intimidated. But this makes me feel like we did a good job. So far i feel good. I feel like we did the characters right because you know comically this. They are looking for a good rick. And morty adventure yet. Ibm's because they've had other Other kind of limited series. Like rick. And morty go to hell stuff the the sex agony forget what worlds apart. I think we're at the park area and all of those. Although i those did those did well rick's new hats seems to be resonating in a in a way that That that those not may not have. I should say excellent books people in rick. And morty ever after all very very good i wanna give those all a plug. They're all such brilliant works. Burland writers david. Ferrier wrote rick. And morty go to hell and he wrote no rights barrier he wrote a comic comic called dave but yeah i think i think they all do well. They also very well. I just honestly don't look at the sales charts for other people's comics out big weirdo i. It's not unlikely some of these other books are also selling out at some. It's just it's not our books so we're not looking at that you know now. They're really excellent books. Though our worlds apart was so good there was ever after was wonderful. It's all rick. And morty fantasy story excellent rick world morning worlds apart i want to give a plug. 'cause they pulled a character that has a lot of dislike. I've been writing rick. And morty for the comics a lot of it is like which existing character they wanna poll. It's a story about jerry's dad leg. Jerry is like poly-amorous father cuckold or whatever. Whatever relationship they have from anatomy park. That's such a brilliant poll. What's more he's other. Grandpa like it's very good in this issue. i am. I absolutely love how you guys have have worked with it. And i am. I'm super excited for the rest of these episodes or issues. Because it's like it's not. It's not a way that. I've seen him manipulated. Sort of or hamstrung in the past and so it. It's a really unique. Take on limits of for rick and and I we've talked about in the past. About how like. Rick seem like a god right he. He cannot fail because of his. You know limitless intelligence in the things that he's created but I don't know. I think you guys are doing some really cool with with this issue. So i'm go by people. Think tank by guy was going to say his rick x. machen Yeah no that was interesting to to explore. Just kind of like the premier theon myth kind of and it seems like just like rick almost because the see. The show is always going. He's a god. He's a god he's a god and i was like yeah. He does seem like a character from greek myth. Who gets a gift from someone. When this was a preview we show rick. Yeah and i was just like the whole story of like what would happen. If those gifts were like those gifts were like tampered. Godly gift tampered samson. Losing his hair back in a thing. Yeah absolutely it's great. I i i absolutely love it. Male pattern baldness for sampson so round you guys.
