That is that, that is true, and Oprah at least had a good reason not to roll conned who's that? What was her good reason not to know you know who I was? William just thought you were someone else Mr. shattner, right? That you're famous. I've actually interviewed mister shattner before I have not yet but been who remembers right in situations like that. I but Oprah and I interviewed that was before an interview with Oprah.

Sequence of events today with William Shatner who goes by Bill Shatner, who thought you were his friend, the director and left very nice things on your voicemail nice that you connected them row. I really you know, there's a lot of ways that could have gone, you could have made it a bit could call them on the air. Yes. But he's such a nice guy. You did the right thing. We did play the voice mails on the air and it worked out. Okay. Ten worked out okay for everybody, as far as anybody knows I think that for me is I was still like to know how it is that William Shatner had my phone number because it's a one in a trillion chance of just randomly dialing numbers that you're going to get mine, and then dialing it dialing and being so sure that that was the right number. Like getting go bang. Okay. Transcribed a number here. No, he just kept calling it. And even when you confronted him he said, that's not this is the number I have for Kevin. You've got the wrong number. No, that's my number. I don't know whatever it is. It was it was very, very funny. Everybody was a good sport about worked out. That's fine.

"Headline White House officials fear the president's anger had the mullahs report. We're talking about the possible roots of that anger. He's been venting lately on Twitter would certainly fits a pattern. Question is what happens Thursday when the redacted report arrives in fear, loathing aside? How will the report be received by Democrats who control the house demanding to see more congressman Rokon is a democrat who sits on the house oversight committee. I spoke to him shortly before airtime. Congressman the fact that the president has been railing on Muller in recent days could he have been given some sort of a heads up on the content of report or do you think he's just? Covering his bases. Well, I think he's concerned. They White House did not calculate that their own White House counsel, cooperated with Muller and spent over thirty hours testifying Muller. And I think he's concerned about the obstruction of Justice issues, and what the White House counsel may have told Muller in terms of White House aides the reportedly being worried that the report might make the president angry them should they have had some expectation of privacy or should everyone who talked to Muller have assumed that what they say would one day become public. I think in an investigation like this. If you work for the president specially as the White House counsel, you should assume that this is going to become public is, especially when Muller as report was going to go to congress, and what's surprising to me is that the president know nor anyone on his team actually talked to the White House counsel or some of the aids to see what they told him. I'll or and this is why I think they're concerned because they're worried about what may have been shared their four categories than the bore has said he will use in terms of what to redact and one of them is about third parties. And it's not clear exactly what he means by that. I mean, he said it doesn't apply to to the president. Do you think it possibly applies to two members of the president's staff? Well, it shouldn't and bar has not been transparent in this whole process. I mean, ordinarily an attorney general would sit down with Jerry Nadler, and one of the Republicans in congress and come to an agreement about what should be redacted, and what shouldn't be redacted. And he hasn't followed any of that. And so what we now need to do is see the report see what the reductions are see if there's if there are fair, and then push to see more if he has not been transparent, how long I mean, if there are a lot of reductions that Democrats field or improper how long a battle that could very easily become a legal battle that could drag on for and some in the past in somewhat similar circumstances. Strike down for years. It could. And I don't think that's good for the country. I don't think that's good for the president. I mean, even if they're embarrassing details in the report, the president should be for getting it all out there and moving on. I mean, let let's get the facts out there. So that we can focus on issues that people care about. And the other thing is that Barr. Could at least show the report to Nadler, the chair of the judiciary committee into the speaker. And the minority leader, I don't need to see it a not every member of congress needs to see it. I think we should be able to. But at the very least in private share the report with the key committee chairs and the key leadership. Why is this important because you know, there are plenty you could look at this and say, well, look speaker Pelosi has all but ruled out impeachment proceedings because the Senate it wouldn't pass through the Senate the attorney general's personal counsel they've already ruled out criminal proceedings. So regardless of what the report says what's going to come of it. Well, it's important because the American people should know there was misconduct..

Well, this wasn't a good movie. This is not a great film. I don't care what you critics thing. As you should absolutely. As you should. I mean, I I value a lot of their points. And for me, it's just fun to watch. This is why maybe the reason that the Oscars were considering that fan favorite category, which they then eliminated because it was so stupid the way they rolled it out. And maybe ultimately, it's a bad idea. And maybe it's because they wanted to get more of the networks action and comic book movies in. But it is for a movie like that that you could say, okay, maybe the critics didn't love it. But the fans did. So let's put some stuff in there for them with ten nominees possible.

Like, I mean, it does seem like this sort of thing of a winning franchise would want to go do especially since it. They take them away from from Green Bay. That's a good deal.

"Support plan now that package would provide various forms of support including software and maintenance to the Saudi Royal airforce at le- at six different airbases in the regime through December thirty first twenty twenty five. So we are going to continue apparently aiding and abetting the. Saudi government in in all the horrific things that they have done in Yemen. And we now have more concrete sense of how long that lasts because of TY T investigates reporting here, it will go through twenty twenty five and and I wanna point out that the heroes that lead this fight and almost one in congress to stop that funding for the war in Yemen. And the stop to support of the Saudis were Rokon on the house and Bernie Sanders in the Senate once again, the most progressive members of congress are the ones that either take action and get things done as they did was stop bazo sacked or come incredibly close to actually getting other getting the Republican vote with them and do more progressive legislation when the so-called moderates have gotten almost nothing done. So let's be honest about whose practical and pragmatic, but unfortunately, they they missed out by three votes in the house because of. Five corporate conservative Democrats voted with the Republicans so underside understand who's on whose side here. And I also want to help people visualize just how bad the situation in the m and is now there's been great photo journalism from the New York Times on this story. And I I wanna commend them for that. But in terms of broadcast journalism, I haven't really seen much coverage on this at all. And there hasn't been anything to help people visualize what's going on. So we're about to show you some images of you, many children and just the toll that this war in Yemen is taking on them. These are innocent civilians, obviously, but the images are difficult to look out. So I want to give you a warning before we go to them. But this is what Donald Trump supports. This is what Donald Trump is complicit in. It is horrendous the famine that's taking place, the tens of thousands of children who have already lost their lives as a result of this war. I it's so heartbreaking. So let me explain the numbers. So fourteen million people are on the precipice of dying from hunger in Yemen. It's unbelievable that in the year twenty eighteen that millions of people might die from hunger. Five million of them are kids. It has already begun the deaths have begun the famine has been around for a while. Eighty five thousand kids have already starved to death in Yemen. So they didn't have to the Saudis blocked a port that brings in food and medicine. That's why they're starving. And and so they control the country and the Saudis don't, but the Saudis control the port so the country's starving. And so we we should be incredibly upset about what happened in Jamal kashogi the Saudi government chop them up beheaded him and cetera. But we should be even more upset about eighty five thousand kids who starved to death because of the bar Barrick regime of Saudi Arabia and our eight of them. And again, this TYP story proves we unin bay a undeterred by this massacre. That's happening in Yemen. The United States military still working with the Saudis all the way through twenty twenty-five. And by the way who benefits. In this case, it's a company called tactical communications group. So a defense contractor is still making money while those kids started remember why we launched bombs on Syria a little while back who was last year and Brian Williams called the bomb spectacular and beautiful and the media's celebrated the Donald Trump was being tough. And finally, he's the president..

"But now, here's a another fun part. Okay. So next week. I'll Thursday we are going to do what is next for the progressive movement. What should we fight for now? You know, some of the policies, but we're going to prioritize wash should come first. What should we do strategically? How much should we fight for how much should we try to push Democrats is easy to push republics? Although not apparently for the rest of the Democrats, never pushed Republicans, but for progressive that's easy. But how much should we push other Democrats? Right. So we're gonna have a whole range of progressives from very socialists. Okay. Some of them seem to make arguments that are. Borderline communist anyway in that Kim place their arts. Okay. Sherry to to establish a little bit more establishment t but really, you know, we're so we got the whole spectrum of progresses. But obviously, you know, every sport a Wolfpack, just Democrats, and you know, what younger stands for. I think we're also arguably the mainstream progressives, these progressives as in Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren people who actually represent us, obviously Alexandria, CASA of Cortez et cetera. So that's gonna be a big night Rokon is going to be here in many other guests, and they're gonna tell us, and he's inside the house is one of the leaders of the progressives. And he's gonna tell us what priorities they have. And what order they're going to go in and how much they're going to push democratic leadership. So that is really interesting.

"He does sports afternoons for us on the Rokon show with the blonde you can follow him on Twitter at k Powell seven twenty and let's get back to it. Hey, Kevin the the bears first place Chicago Bears. Let's talk a little bit about this has been kind of a fun season. So far. Yes. First time they've had sole possession of first place through week nine since two thousand twelve so they're in the driver's seat year in which we thought was going to be very competitive division. I think there are some good teams here that the Vikings Detroit in Green Bay of all had some bad losses as have the bears. But it's it's very tight. And we've got a streak here at three straight division ups for the bear. And all three are coming within an eleven day stretch all day stretch. So this is this is really could kinda define the season in where the bears go because he got wyans Vikings in primetime. And then lions again in prime time. If you if you want to consider eleven o'clock on thanksgiving where the whole, you know, everybody's watching. Everybody's gonna wanna get academia. Yeah. Yeah. You got three games coming up here. And. They're big for. Sure. Yeah. Well, did you did you expect them to to you know, to to have this kind of run? I mean, you know, they're a couple of disappointing games. We want to talk about the Green Bay game. But there's a couple of disappointing games in there. But but there was a blowout last week. Yeah. I mean, there's always blind optimism. The fans, you know in training camp and things like that. But I I'm actually not that surprised. I mean, if you look at talents, especially on the defensive side of the ball they're doing what they should do. And they had a couple of weeks you want to call them that you know, definitely Miami. But the climax injury hasn't helped. For the most part the bears are kinda what I thought they were going to be. Okay. Danny green. I know stuck in my head out every now, and again, I can't help it, Nick. Everyday life. They are thought. But seriously, they are like a really good defense. And that a quarterback who has looked pretty good at times. But he's also had some inaccurate throws bears bears. Offenses averaging the bears in general averaging over thirty four points per game over the past five games. That's that's top five in the NFL. So scoring points up fourteen and I'm coming on the defensive side of the ball last week, but they're doing enough on offense and the defense is playing well, and and the bears are looking pretty good right now said these next three weeks and eat health of Khalil Mack weighs heavily on where this team goes. Yeah. Over the next six seven weeks here. Yeah. The next three weeks are really big they're huge for the for for the bears. I know everybody is going to be watching. So speaking of football. Let's go over to north western having a great year. They lost the Notre Dame this past week and you were at the game, correct? Yeah. What atmosphere we were doing a show from their leading up to it? Because there's just such that buzz Notre Dame in town. I mean that was the first time since nineteen seventy six Notre Dame at played at right, right? Yeah. Yeah. They've they've played a good amount of times. But the the pass the previous two times they played which were considered. I guess northwestern. Home games were at soldier. They weren't at Ryan field. So nine hundred seventy Sixers last time there man, it was it was just an awesome atmosphere because. In south southbound, but it's one hundred ten hundred twenty miles that separates the two schools. Chicago means so much to both of those universities for a lot of different reasons. Sale. Right. Right. North north western Boston and northwestern. They take care of business. The next few weeks and went two or three in the big ten championship. Yeah. So that's been sort of a funnier. They had a little rough start there to go. But they together four wins over the last five weeks. So they're pretty good shape. Yeah. Well, David seems happy. That's all that matters. Say that again, I said Dave, and it seems happy. So that's all that matters. That's all that ever mattered. Davis happy. So, you know, they get Saturday, but they fought hard, and that's a that's a tough like Notre Dame's number three in the country. So yeah, not northwestern. Put up a fight at home and luggage said there, they can they take care of business over the final few weeks to play in the big ten championship game. And I think you can call that a successful. You're absolutely let's talk before we get out of here. Let's talk baseball real quick picked up the option for hamels Strope and can Tana. How do you feel about that? The no brainer. They're going to pick this one up in the next one because they are so team friendly. That was a big reason. The cubs wanted a trade for containers. Because he makes so much sense. Contractually Cole hamels. There was maybe so questions that maybe they would try to buy them out and then restructure the deal. Maybe even at a second year under the deal. But that makes sense I let y'all three deals made sense for the cubs shops. And so it's been good for them for so long out of the bullpen. Hamels was great last year trade for me. You're not going to get rid of out after what you traded for him. So they all three mates Rizzo gets the gold glove about that. That's that's deserved. Solidly consistent. You just couldn't rely on them over there. So I think well deserved for results to straighten up. Yeah. And then by as is among the finalists for MVP. Yeah. You're not gonna win. It's probably going to be Chris Christian yelich. You're lucky. Sorry. It's salted. No, no, no. No. No. It's true. Absolutely. No question about it. Yeah. But both great years for for for both guys, really. And you know, I'm really tired of the New England area winning as many championships as they do. Now. I mean, it's just it's it's ridiculous. And he was eleven championships. Now in the last fourteen years, something like that. It's. Listen, I know Boston Red Sox fans would listen they they suffered second only to us in sandwich. Sponsored suffer for a long time. But man, they should just leave those barriers and those like St. guards up in the parade route for all these teams because you're probably saved the city for money. Right. They're having a run over there. Many are all right. All right. Kevin. Well, listen, man, always fun to talk to you on my show. And I appreciate you taking the time to.
