I want to know where you grew up. And how you got involved with all of this stuff that you've been involved with over the years i did not grow up around and kind of show business. My dad was arab. my mom was from kansas. They met at the university of missouri. My dad came over on the boat and he ended up getting his doctorate economics at georgetown university and they married when they were twenty lived off campus. They actually eloped. It was a big scandal. You know those days to marry a foreigner. They had me when they were quite young. And they were like twenty five or something and we lived in in the east coast near washington and then my dad eventually got in started working for the united nations and he worked for the united nations. Must for the rest of my life and Or his life. He moved around a lot. You know and and we would go back to the middle east every other summer and then every other summer we'd go and visit my mom family in kansas and missouri. So i had to culture. My dad was a very intellectually what he loved reading all kinds of books and he turned me onto a lot of stuff and he knew you know there was always music and there was always a very artistic strain in the house and both my sister and i were pretty artistically inclined but both my parents worked in that environment. Let's dad is the un for the diplomat who served in the diplomatic core of eu undp. And then he ended up running the united nations volunteer program. My mom got her library degree from home when she was had the kids. And then she ended up working for international trade and for a little girl from kansas. She was one of those people that got out. She wanted to see the world and so we traveled. And and so that was kind of my upbringing. I was exposed to a lot. I remember my mom. Taking me to see is going to date may carol burnett and the entertainers in new york. And i was drawn to theater and i was always drawn to that kind of thing but i was incredibly shy so i never really was in any school. Plays or anything like that. I was mostly like writing my own. Little books and things like that at home and i was playing piano and i was into music. I was really into music. Always following the music of the day and by the time we moved to morocco. For two years i went to boarding school for my first two years of high school in england and then my last year of high school i came back to new york city. And that's where they had moved back to the city by then and i was just. I went to the un school for two years. I was basically playing hooky a lot going to concerts. I mean i saw ziggy stardust. The first time he came to new york. And you know. And i just you know a teenager running around with my friends and getting in. I don't know how we got into these places. I don't remember buying a ticket. Or you know and i was a dead head when i was sixteen. I went to all the dead concerts. And and then i kinda ran away from home. Because i i wasn't. I didn't want to go to college. And i went to college. I skipped a year in hedge tied to europe with my best girlfriend from the us who was elicit guest. Who is chris guests sister and in fact when we were that's how that whole connection happened when we were in her father was also in the un so when we were in high school we went to see blended because her brother for older brother. Chris was in lemmings. Miss john belushi and chevy chase and all those guys. I ended up going out with chris guest and then we went up to the lampoon. We were lampoon radio our all the time. And that's where. I met kinda wind up belushi in the village because there was a whole bunch of people through the national lampoon that were friends before saturday night live happened and that was sort of the gang and i lived in this tiny little one studio apartment on perry street and john and judy lived on. Bleaker street literally between charleston. Perry around the corner from me and everybody else lived in the neighborhood and we would in those days. We would all meet for breakfast or we don't figure out what was going on that night and we'd all meet up or there was several places people would hang out but we didn't have cell phones and we didn't have answering machines. I mean i think eventually we did but you know what i mean. Those days you were just like hanging out and you would run around and you run into each other or you go up to the radio hour and then go from there and it was all kind of organic. When i grow up with chris i became really good friends with belushi and judy with his wife. So we became kind of best friends and then saturday night live happened quite shortly and so that became a bigger pool of people and i was like the kid on the block. I was really a much younger than all of them. And but i wanted to work. You know i had a sort of work ethic from my dad and you know what are you doing with the rest of your life. And since i knew i studied acting when i was nineteen for about a year so i was to shine freaked out to be an actress so i i ended up just kind of. I worked on the stereotype book. Somebody drafted me into that. And then john short film with tom shore and then he had he worked on it with them and he started gave me tom schiller and said here you know. Put her to work so. Tom taught me everything about making short. So and so. I did that. And i made all these short films with tom which is really fun so we were kind do. Oh and that was it. I was either hanging out. You know with john and judy and danny and all those guys or her and up at the show and that became you know it was just twenty four seven kind of it was like i say it's kind of with my college you know. My college was very life. Which doesn't really set you up for anything late. My comedy live. Comedy doesn't really give you equipped for anything else in life. But not very grateful. I really i could have just hung out and been friends but the truth is i wanted to do something i wanted to work in i. I had a certain talent for a would. I didn't realize could producing in that time. It just you know putting things together and running around and getting people together and everybody seemed to be okay with me. You know. And i'm pretty funny so i guess that was it but it was. It was an education comedy. I mean i had to. You had to be able to hang with boys and you had to be able to hang out when it got heated in the kitchen..

"Balanced for men. Women. The old Cory I need to run the story by you. I mean, you've inspired the my, my going to the story I will have I proved my guess will prove this was not on the docket. I didn't send you this story. I want to run a by the World, Health Organization officially classifies video game addiction as a mental disorder. Can I get your take on that Corey? Do I get a disability placard now? You may this ridiculous thing. But it is something that needs to be addressed. It's not video game. Addiction is addiction in general people with addictive. Personality disorder can get addicted to pretty much anything. There was the story of addicted to buying coins. He just he felt the thrill every time he bought a new coin and it was addicted to your own feeling your own adrenaline drone endorphins. And yes, if you're playing video games too much I would say, that's an addiction, but it's not the video games. All you understand our help. I understand the coin thing. You know, I got I got that map where you get to put the coins in each state, so fun. And I was I didn't have an American Samoa to save my life. I could not get an American Samoa. And when I got it, I mean, there was a family celebration. Believe we got American Samoa dinner was on me. Accredited. So I understand. Pay with your map. I know wouldn't that be nice? You know, the map still hangs up on our wall completed after years of hard work. But so obviously, I think Corey brings up a good point if it's a mental disorder. Maybe you could American Disabilities Act, you, you would be able to play video games at work because you're addicted, why not well well did they feed it? Is that a thing do they feed your addiction at work? Like if I came in. I said, I'm addicted to, you know, something people addicted to alcohol alcohol at work at work. I think that people have done right. The people have used the Americans with Disabilities Act to say, no, you need to give me time off, I need to go. You know, I need to eat, my treat it emotional support bartender comes in. Well Corey thank you for the call. We get a break here, and we will be back with the Tom shillue show.

"Can listen daily show correspondent and Fox News host on their resume. Tom. It is Tom Schiller. It's Tom shillue. And we're back with the Tom shillue showed the numbers eight three three eight five two four eight six six, and let's sketch out what the problem is. We have here. I've been I've got all these great soundbites here from sheriff Steve Raines, he he's not going to enforce the Colorado red flag laws. He says they're too extreme. And it would make him do things that go against his charter as the sheriff. I'm doing what I think is right by my constituents. I'm standing up for their constitutional rights and someone has to just walk away from this position. If I just walk away from my office. Then basically what I'm saying is I want to uphold my oath and protect the constituents in their constitutional rights. I liked this guy. I tell you. We gotta do a whole thing on law enforcement in this country because the. A lot of city people like myself. They don't have a lot of interaction with sheriffs. But a lot of people out there in the country. That's all the law enforcement to them. Is there sheriff so many counties? The only law man is the sheriff. And it almost sounds too citified folks, like myself, it sounds like, you know, sheriff marshal Dillon in the old days. But I don't even know what the percentages are. I'll look them up or what percentage of the country is has sheriff jurisdiction. The town. I grew up in had an old fashioned police department, you know, but the sheriffs are different from the police department. And if you are in a county that is where the sheriff is the law man, they have a lot of power. And sometimes if you have a bad sheriff, it's bad. But if you have a good sheriff. It's it's very good. And I like this guy sheriff Steve Raines, eight three three eight five two four eight six six, but he is essentially going to engage in civil disobedience. He says, no, no, no red flag laws are basically unconstitutionally goes against our second amendment rights. Are you for or again, the red flag laws Lindsey Graham wants to go national with them? And he says he's got the support of the president. I don't know if he does eight three three eight five two four, Tom, Gary and. North carolina. What's your town? Oriental? We're on the end of nowhere. It says that's your slogan is it on your license plate. Now. That's. It's pretty much. It's called the sailing capital. North carolina. It's a very small town population nine hundred do you have. Police department. We have a share up. In fact, we have a panicle county has the younger sheriff in the United States. And we have a great sheriff. When we have a great sheriff's department, and they're all community players. And we pretty much know everybody that is fantastic. It's wonderful, and Tom, I gotta tell you. I don't agree with this law and any former mannered you're calling from LA pretty much hit on the head. What it is is going to turn. It's going to turn political basically saying that is you know, how the left you so anti gun anti. They're gonna start screaming bloody murder that this guy is crazy. You know, you need to take away your guns. And let's say you've got a liberal prosecutor liberal judge that can sign off on it. Well, there's just more guns gone, and the sheriff is very very dangerous game to play for law enforcement because it's very going up to someone's house on some accusation that was handed down by person or persons to judge that's very very dangerous for them. And for the person that's being accused, and I don't agree with any former matter, Gary you make a good case. And I like the way you make succinct points, and you kind of sound to me. Like, Ben Shapiro. Do. You know what I'm talking about? Ben Shapiro, Gary. He talks fast. He very he's very succinct. He's very logical. You kind of remind me wh- as you were talking. I said who does this guy sound like sounds like Ben Shapiro? I hope that's a compliment to you. Anyway. Gary good point. Thank you. Gary for calling in oriental, North Carolina. Eight three three eight five two four. Tom is the number eight hundred three eight five two four eight six six Brian in Raymond Mississippi. Red flag laws. Do we need them? No. But I'm a veteran. I know what an sixteen can do to an individual. I was never for the semi automatic weapons being put into the hands of civilians to begin with. And I expressed my point back in the day when they allowed this to do sold to civilians. Yeah. You don't like the the AR fifteen. Yeah. Because of the damage done a shock done for duck hunting and a handgun for home defence. Yeah. Is because of the damage the what you cited was you've seen the damage. It can do. But I mean a shotgun can blow your head off cannon. Yes. Yes. But. Purpose for shotgun for hunting birds. Are fifteen is meant for nothing. But killing people, isn't it. But I hear from hunters though, I ever mutters a call been say that my main hunting weapon is are fifteen and you need it for those. I don't know what they're killing. But big. A herd of deer charging them. That's just ridiculous. I mean, if you have somebody break into your home, there's gonna be two three maybe four match guys breaking into your home. That's when the hand of comes in new Kaka shotgun, who's you ever break into your home is probably gonna soil themselves. What about is? Okay. Yeah. So your point though on the guns is that the, but so you are. So this is good testimony coming from you because you don't like the semiautomatics you don't even like that. They're out there. But you're are you for or against the red flag laws? I'm against the red flag was because there are enough people. You can go back all the way to do. Good Kentucky and a family member had concerns about this person having access to weapons, and that's when the family needs to get involved with my dad had a few minor parking lot accidents. And nothing major. No one got hurt. It was just dense and cars, and we went over and told them that it's time to stop driving to got us in town. You've got the senior bust. I think that comes to your building and can take you somewhere. That's what needs to happen with these stunts, sandy, hook, Connecticut. I mean, I'm from originally from Connecticut. And you know. The mother was job. I mean look at their kids haircut. Yeah. Well, that's the concern. Is that like you said, you guys intervene with your dad, and you said, okay, we're gonna take this. And we're gonna take this car away from you. Yeah. But the the case of the sandy hook mom, she wasn't gonna intervene. So I think that's why these people have the red flag laws. They say the people that are doing these things are coming from from bad families that either there's a single mom is not she's not doing her job or the school is not monitoring these kids. So that I I guess that's the whole reason for the law is they're saying that some people don't have families that look after them the way that you do, you know? If you connected the dots were enough people out there that knew that there was issues with this family that they if they connected the dots. Could've said, okay. Yeah. We need to go in and bring a family bring family members. If that's possible. To bring down the tension in the situation. But bringing the police to to have the authority to help you get the gun away from these people, so Brian let me take that tomorrow. There callers Brian says, let the family courts handle this and let the current laws you can intervene in with law enforcement. You don't need extra quote, unquote. Red flag laws Jake in Denver. He's calling from where this new law was passed. J? Are you comfortable with the red flag law in Colorado? Not at all, Tom, man. It's it's it's it's a terrible. All I don't. I don't agree with it at all. It's gonna end up with a lot of bad things happening to good people in my opinion, and the whole last guy that called talking about the AARP fifteen hunting. I absolutely do hot with AR fifteen we use it for varmint, hunting coyotes feral hogs, especially in Texas. I mean, Radicati feral hogs of Texas is something that has become next to impossible trials state. But so, yeah, it's not just big beasts. I mean, you can you go out there. And why do you like the air fifteen is it? It's it's it's handleable. I mean, I've shot one. Very accurate. It's a flat shooting done. I can fire thirty rounds out of it pretty quick. So if I have I have Tim Sherlock shouldn't Sonny three of them are over three hundred pounds. I mean one bullet unless it's very well placed is they're gonna kill that animal. I'm gonna need a couple more hours than that. And that animal, but I mean, you got thirty feral hogs and funding you you're gonna want as many rounds as possible because otherwise they're just gonna run you over. Yeah. Wow. So you're out there nail and a whole bunch of feral hogs at a time that does sound like fun. We've got to the point in Texas where we don't even use guns anymore. We use channel writing feet blocks. Just blow them up. Wile E. Coyote, jake. Look it up on at look it up on good. Whenever you get a chance hunting hearts with ten right? I'm picture with the TNT you pushed after and then feral hogs. Face with smoke coming out of it. It's fantastic. Jake. Thanks for the call Jake. He doesn't like the laws in Colorado. Do we need extra red flag laws, Patty and a Legrand Oregon? No, I don't think we do need any more laws. Unfortunately, Oregon has already passed one and it's been in place since last summer. You have a red flag law and you ever heard of it. Have you heard or seen of this being implemented? Not yet. I have not it is what it says in the law that who requested a family member spouse partner, parent-child cabling or anyone living in the household. What happens is that person petitions the circuit courts with the notarized rotation. It goes to the circuit court. They have to hold that hearing within twenty four hours the person who's being accused of this does not have any representation at that first hearing, and if the judge agrees twenty four hours all weapons in hand gun permits have to be surrendered and they can't buy gun or get anything for a year. I don't like that. You know what I don't like about? It is the the person being accused isn't there? It's, you know, this is the whole idea of our Justice system is you're allowed to stand up face your accuser and say, I'm not guilty of this or or at least make his case in front of the judge. So the judge can say this guy doesn't seem crazy to me. Yeah. That's exactly what is concerning. A lot of the more conservative people in Oregon. Yeah. Okay. Patty. Thank you for the call. The Patty did a good description of how the law works in her state, and I don't like the by her description. I know she wasn't reading me from the statute. But I don't like the sound of Dave in Delaware. You gotta sheriff in your area. Dave. Yeah. But the state police mostly services are area. Wanted to make between police departments and sheriff's office. Yes. Please teaser appointed by mayor county executive governor. Whereas a sheriff is an elected official. I know, and I don't know which one I prefer which one do you think is better? Prefer the sheriff because they're electing change in a police department. Can you can get them out of there? And if you have a you know, you've seen what's going on in Chicago and things like that. And and keep a hands are tied by politicians. Yeah. You could completely do away with all that. I'm not saying every police department like the real small municipalities, but at least on the on the county level at sheriffs. In those sheriffs are. Above the smaller jurisdictions, and those smaller jurisdictions have have to answer to this year. Yeah. I think he'd take a lot of problems at a law enforcement. If if you just made that one simple change. Yeah. Thanks for the call. Dave. That is I said, you know, we had a sheriff's department in our town. And you know, I mean, we had a traditional police department in our town, and I never lived in an area that had a sheriff. But I failed to mention as Dave did the this central difference. Sheriffs are elected and police departments are appointed. Now, you could think of a scenario where maybe you have a small town. And you got this guy. That's connected. And he, you know, he's a good old boy, and they and he's. You know, he keeps getting elected and reelected, and there's corruption and things like that. Elections can lead to corruption and they can lead to a kind of a a lifetime almost a lifetime. Know a lifer in there. Just like we got these guys in congress. We can't get rid of. But. I like the idea of accountability. And that is what is good about sheriff's is that their elected, and they're accountable to the people they serve eight three three eight five two four eight six six, but we're talking about red flag laws de alaikum DNR them eight.

"This president using hardens or the potential of pardons as a way to sort of keep witnesses in line. It's almost like a suborning perjury. If you kind of dangle pardon power out to people, nobody's dangling pardoning power. But you know, what Tim Kaine keeps? Talking about dangling pardoning power. The president has never promised a pardon to anyone. But you hear Democrats Tim Kaine saying that he's using the power of the pardon to influence Justice that he's obstructing Justice, by dangling, who's dangling pardons. Senator Tim Kaine and yet Fox News is fear mongering because they reported on the caravan. Are you guys laughing? I'm making myself laugh. At how the rich irony of this Lillian in new Bern, North Carolina. Hello. Hi, tim. How Tom I'm sorry. Oh, yeah. No problem. Close. It's very close. Okay. Listen, first of all they won't have. What the heck is his name on FOX, Matthew. Will you mean Chris Wallace Chris Wallace because he won't get into questions at a time period, that's three? So if you won't give the questions, and we'll just we'll just not have you at all. Well, they don't usually get them like handed to them. But sometimes they sneak them as you know, Donna Brazile was able to sneak the question. If you have a cold or they have a way of finding out they give them to him because it gives them to what makes them think for one minute that everybody doesn't know they cheat. Sneak out. Yes. Yeah. The person tonight. Give me give it to all the crummy bum sets. That he released from prison and everywhere else junkies and druggies and rich not Frank rich. But the Marc rich the famous Mark rich pardons and also his brother Roger was outselling pardons. A even though he didn't he would actually charge a hundred granted to provide a pardon. And then he wouldn't deliver it he'd say. Oh, well, I tried. That's what they deserve exactly so lily, and you think he should boycott the networks. They don't do anything for him. Anyway. Once they all of these things are all you can have a go on FOX. And have a list of things that he wants to talk about. All the people what he thinks about the Orioles. I don't see why not they don't do anything staffing million. Thank you so much. I like your point of view. Let's take Franken Staten Island should the president boycott the networks. Oh my God. I want him to take them on full bore. So like, not boycott them. Go on you want them to to not boycott not to go. I I'm sorry. Go ahead. You want him to either. I mean is it a boycott or do you want to take them on his own network? Like, go on Lester Holt show and fight back while he's being interviewed. Oh, absolutely full bore. I want him to and the reason why I want him to even though no matter what he says, you know, ninety percent of them are never gonna listen to. It's gonna fall on deaf ears. I just wanna make sure like the person three calls before independent to said she voted for him. They said he's not doing a good job. And that he's losing he needs to do the right thing. Well, she's right. But he is doing a good job. But he does he do the right thing. And that right thing is to get that built with no matter what it takes. What you were saying it's not it's not it's beyond laughable. It's almost insane. They talk about a Taliban. Right in front of our eyes. Are things is happening. Every day. It's not history. It's happening right now. And and they're not doing anything about it. They're not saying anything. Meanwhile, you could go on YouTube, and you can see Clinton Schumer Obama. You could see all them. Shame five years ago. Six years ago. We have a problem, and we need money for security to secure borders. And I'm like, you gave a home run fifty billion dollars. And you're telling me, you don't have money. Frank. I like it. Thanks gone from Staten Island, New York. And I think there's a lot of Trump voters out there in Staten Island. But you guys Frank you end up getting swamped by all the other boroughs. You know, that well, listen, let me tell you something. And you know, I'm not fun sat down originally, and they always look down. And they'll say, oh, Staten island's or they're blue collar people. I said wait a minute though. Are blue collar workers a lot of union workers, which are normally democrat voters. A lot of people changed sides to vote for Trump. Yeah. A lot. Yeah. Frank, thanks for the call. We're going to break your eight three three eight five two four eight six six. We have good good callers convincingly on both sides. You see me? I'm I'm going back and forth like a ping pong ball.

"If he has really she's almost did you see over the weekend. I didn't she did a Wilbur Wilbur Ross that made me laugh very very high. She did that on another episode that made me the line in. This was very over. She says anybody on a I'm hearing ghosts. It was very funny that might have been the best episode of the season. I think so I left a lot. Halsey? This past Saturday. I was walking around just to have in my, you know, idle thoughts as do and suddenly for some reason. I remembered the episode from February of nineteen Eighty-four of Saturday Night Live that was hosted by newsman Edwin Newman. And I suddenly thought to myself. What was then what about right? Why did that happen unloved to know? And I went back, and I watched bunch of the sketches from head you. You. They're fine. But they don't answer the question. No, don't I remember seeing one sketch from that abyss owed because they repackaged around Libya year or two after that they did a weird episode of us. And now that was a it was a clip show. But the premise was they got siskel and Ebert siskel neighbor came in and they just showed all of the films like the, oh what what they Tom Schiller retains yet. And so and then they would review them sincerely or scripted. You know, I might brain wasn't able to discern. Whether I think it was supposed to be funny, but they were being themselves and being critical of the stuff. But but at one of the things I think Edmund Edwin Newman was in one of say like that rings a bell. But I I'd like I feel like it would be interesting. If they did that today like had a host who to ninety percent of the audience is just a random old, man. You know is not an actor. We did do that. And then he became president. Yeah. But he was hosting that. Does Dan rather. My son wise, Dan ran who's basically he's been a blogger for the last. She's yeah. Is an my wrong because I if this didn't happen I felt like it probably almost did before his crews derailed, but did Brian Williams ever hosted. I want to say he did once because he was very getting very deep into comedy. Deepens allies. I remember John Stewart he was on the daily show, and Brian Williams was getting off great jokes again, and again, and and John Stewart said in an interesting tone. He said you're too good at that. Like. But not quite man. But like this is wrong. Yeah. In a weird way away kind of felt to me like like it guests at what was coming. Right. You know what I mean? No, you shouldn't be an anchor. Like you. There's not you're not stiff enough. You're not serious is boring enough. Right. I like him. I wouldn't do Brian Williams did that eleventh-hour enjoys program. Here's the thing. I want to direct people because it is. It's become part of the popular culture. Would just be like. Oh, yeah. Brian Williams is a liar. But there was an episode of Malcolm, glad wells podcast where he goes into like that whole incident, and they they t- talks to memory experts who are like. Especially in trauma, your brain tends to like make get things wrong. And like he was he was in the convoy that was attacked..

"Everything, right? Their whole lives. But let's be clear about what he did is file it is racist times have changed a lot of the subtle racism that is out there. Is not seen as being subtle anymore. Alesi runs the Georgetown University institute of politics. He spent two decades working on democratic campaigns, including eight in Virginia. There are a lot of people out there who would look at a picture like this one twenty years ago, and either ignore it or laugh it off. And that won't do that anymore. Lazy says the country has changed culturally, and there are Democrats who think of north as an honorable person who made a mistake years ago, but they cannot let it slide while also taking on Republicans.

"And everything we'll take a look at the guy. So don't write out Schultz people wrote off President Trump and now the door is wide open. For the billionaire businessman to come in as president Connor in Boston. What do you think? Yes. Yes. So I think the president has so many accomplishments that I think we takes us when this comes to the campaign that the American people will be able to see that the Democrats say the walk not who we are. But the American liberals not who we are when it comes down to American values. Yeah. I mean, I think you're right about that that most people in the end when they when you use the word wall it doesn't poll as well. But when they talk about do we need to. Have barriers on the border overwhelmingly, most average American's say, yes, of course. Just a few quick points to what it comes down to our economy when it comes down to all the other policies of the administration's made ports immigration, what it comes down to just, you know, just in general, I feel that the president is mostly honest. And when it comes to somebody like Elizabeth Warren, I'm you know, I'm from Massachusetts. So I was through her twenty eighteen campaign. Yeah. The whole thing was on not running for president. I'm not running for president shift elected. Oh, I'm running for president. Yeah. We have a Senator in Massachusetts. It's pretty much useless. As if she was to begin with. Insys politicians at the swamp. It's the establishment and Trump is not a part of that. And people at Kamala Harris like Elizabeth Warren. They are so radical, but at the same time they are part of that. And it's just not who we our country, and our values if you could even call them are not device that we share as American. I agree. Connor. And the thing is that Kamala Harris if she were to get the nomination, she is to the left of Obama. But you know, what would happen is once she got the nomination. She would ask the help of the media to portray her as a centrist the way that Obama. Did they did help they helped Obama portray himself as a not red or blue? He's a transformative figure. He's not about party and Kamala Harris would expect the media to fall in line and do that for her, and they probably would do it. And she and her communications team would then fall back on the fact that she was a prosecutor, and she was tough on crime. And all of a sudden, the social Justice stuff would just would disappear and she would emphasize different things. Just like they did in the fall. The Democrats said nobody talk about the wall. Nobody talking about the border. Nobody talking about immigration, and they all fell in. In line. And that's how they snuck in this fall. Unfortunately, the president wasn't able to if he had the wall situation if he had the the heat on the wall and the border the way he does now before the election he might have been able to stem the tide little Connor thanks for the call eight hundred three eight five two four eight six six. We're getting some good advice for the president for twenty twenty eight three three eight five two four eight six six. This is Tom Schiller. We'll be right.

"'cause we're desperate to get Trump out of office? What does that have to well, joy joy essentially admitted it in their frustration. They they don't like President Trump. They think he's gotten away with something. It really bothers them in any way that they can slander other Americans who either support him or like him. They're going to take it and they jump on it because they're frustrated because they're angry. It's like they're slamming doors. They're they're they're pounding their fists on the table. They're they're at their wit's end. And it's irrational. I'm sure that's something that she's not willing to admit. I'm glad she's willing to admit that the reason they're flailing around, and they are willing to blame innocent people and take down students in anything else. They can do to damage people's reputations. It's really really terrible the piling on. And this was a it was a crystal clear example of that why is it because they're frustrated because they don't like President Trump. So the fact that these kids had a mega hat on made them fair game to them. So my question to you. Would you wear a maga- hat and public? Would you go out with it? I I wouldn't I wouldn't because I don't want to be attacked by idiots. So I wouldn't wear the hat would you wear it out in public. Now, look, I'm criticizing people. I would like to mercy who did a tweet. And I said look this shell shocked. They shouldn't be reacting to this. And then I was kinda bragging I I don't have any regard for these people. So I'm not afraid of them. Obviously. I just admitted I might be a little afraid of them because I'm not going to wear a maga- hat to an award show. I'm not even going to wear it into a a subway to order a sandwich. I mean, a subway or into the subway certainly not into the subway. I don't want someone to hit me over the head. So is the what is the mega hats say exactly what does it say. I mean, all it says make America grading, and obviously it's a little bit more than that. It kinda says I support President Trump. Right. I'm sure there's a way you could walk down the street and say, no, I just wanna make America great. I don't even know who this guy is Trump, but we all know the mega hat is a Trump thing now, but listen to sunny hostile listen to sunny hostile on the view, the ladies of the view, they have a way of admitting things and saying things eight a clear way, it's amazing to get their viewpoint. Sometimes it's so wrong and sunny halston is so wrong here. But listen to the way that the media or the mainstream people want to treat this incident, which is it's nothing but fraud a fraud was perpetrated on students in the story. And there's not there's no other angle to this is nothing confusing about it. But they want to always say, it's so complex and the kids. Start started this chance one kid ripped off his shirt, and you know. Which chanting? Prolife were there for them. And that's the other thing, you know, Catholic churches, you know, you get this this exemption this tax exemption because you're not supposed to be through medical, and and they had these fees. These political these hats on these these outfits again where were the adults advising them that they can't wear that. Where were the adults advising them? They can't wear that hat says sunny halston these people are so clueless. But I love to hear them talk because they this is mainstream America. This is someone who's paid to be on TV everyday to analyze the news. And she's wondering where we're chaperones ordering the children that they couldn't wear those hats why because the school that they go to belongs to a church that receives some tax benefits. What are you kidding me? So how does Sonny halston think that students shouldn't be able to wear those hats? What does that mean? I get another amazing quote from sunny hostile on the story. And again, this is why I love this story so much it is eight is it crystallizes what's going on in America. So much. What's the mega hat mean? Would you wear out in public? Because it is being called. It's undeniably in the clip. I'll play when I get back. They say that they had itself is the latest. You think it is a racist symbol, they think it's a symbol of racism. So you should be able to essentially judge someone based on this make America great again hat eight three three eight five two four eight six six. Eight three three eight five two four, Tom. What does that mean? What is what does the magazine? I mean, what does it say? Tell me what it says when you see someone with the hat on. What do you think about them? What does it say? What are they wearing on their head? What are they telling us? This is Tom Schiller. We'll be right back. Tom.

"Two four eight three three eight five two four eight six six. Tom Schiller back with the Tom shillue show that is right. The number is eight three three eight five two four, Tom. I mentioned Karl rove. This is Karl rove saying that he he wants to trade. I think the president ought to say explicitly. You know, what if you'll give me the wall, I will give you a legal a legal status for the dreamers. Put it on the table. He's been willing to do it in the past. And then we'll see whether or not the Democrats are going to simply be mindless obstructionist or whether they're going to do the right thing for the country. So that's called robes idea. Trading the dreamers and he's right. He had put it on the table before a certain number of dreamers a certain number of requirements for the dreamers to have their path if he were to put it back on that would be a major. In your face. Kind of gesture for Chuck and Nancy could they resist that? I don't know if I agree with core of I kind of liked the temporary the two week. The the sweat lodge routine. Two weeks. We're going to go into the lodge. We're going to negotiate in good faith. If they promised me. I will they will negotiate in good faith. Chuck Nancy, the president should say if they promised to negotiate in good faith. I'll open the the the government for two more weeks, and we will hammer out a deal. What do you say you guys say, no, he say, he can't give any more. But you gotta do something. I think. Either Karl rove way or my way. Or maybe the Chris Han way. Christopher Hans joining us. Now, don't let that scare you. Keep your calls coming in at eight three three five to four Tom. I don't want them to be scared of you Chris on nobody should be scared of me or anybody. They disagree with for all Americans who has got more in common than we disagree about. But you're not scared. To them. I might you know, I like taking calls when you're a guest on my show. I'm not afraid of anybody. And I encourage him to call in. And I think they should I you know, what I do my radio show. The people who disagree with me. They go to the front of the line front of the line. I don't say that. I always say I want to hear from people who disagree with me. But I never used that front of the line thing because. You know, I it seems like I'm not being fair. You know what I'm saying? I mean, look, I'm telling a point of view, and you know, I always I used to do a segment on my show. I used to start my show with a random that bring in a conservative commentator to disagree with me. I used to I use my life. So Tom shillue tell me why of all, you know. And they would you know, they would debate. What I just went on to five minutes. I do my show a little differently now. So I don't do that. I bring a guest on not until the second hour, but I want I, you know, I believe in vigorous debate, which is why I really value the time I spend on Fox News channel. And a lot of my my liberal friends wonder why I do it. I liked the free exchange of ideas. I've directed a lot of good friendships with people who I disagree with who. I love personally. I always put by Bongino out there. I'm Dan, and I are really good friends. And we we have some of the most heated debate you'll ever see on TV. So it's we disagree on a lotta things. But we're Beth American values and our core beliefs are very similar. I think what's getting lost in this debate. And the politics of the last two to six years is we're starting to look at each other with suspicion because we might have different views on how we should run the country and we've got to get away from that. Yes. That that's going to be possible in the Trump era. Well, why not how about you guys? I got a great first step give them five billion and see what he does with it. How's that? I love that. Here's my thing. And I've been saying this, and I'll say it again. There was a deal in December to keep the government open cast a hundred did nothing in the Senate. And it was only four this had it because Mitch McConnell had the understanding if that's what the president wanted to do. Then he changed his mind. The next day and closed the government. The Democrats are saying we don't wanna negotiate against ourselves open the government, we'll negotiate now what you just said about two weeks. That's fine open the government for two weeks and negotiate. And I have a feeling that isn't that two weeks? You'll get it agreement on border security, whether it's five billion or three billion, whatever Democrats are similar to security. They may not do a physical wall. That's likely the president hasn't really presented a plan for physical wall. But the is there is you know, that they agree on a certain dollar value for border security in exchange for some things that Democrats want. That's the way it works. Look, there was an election in November the Democrats won't overwhelmingly, and it's it's time to. To acknowledge that they have some power in this government, Mr President opened the government negotiate with them. Well, the this is a good example because you look to the future Chris on. I said, hey, why don't you give them the five billion? You said I want to remind you that back in December. That's every time. You hear an argument? These guys the Democrats keep saying, well, you know, a few months ago, this you guys keep going back a few months. Don't you want to look? December the deal was we're gonna kick you government open and allow the new congress to be seated and to negotiate border security with the president that was the deal. Right. He went back on it. You know, I don't know about you. But I read the art of the deal, and what are the things in the rules. The core principles of the ordeal. Don't negotiate against yourself. The president is asking Nancy Pelosi who's really skilled negotiator to negotiate against herself. And she why would she do that? I don't know what that means said that a few times, but she's negotiating against him. He Saint gimme five billion. She's saying, no, I'm giving you zero. So the negotiation is give me some big open the government, and we'll we'll talk. She's not really saying. No. He's hearing now because he wants her life people always said yes to him. He's been a millionaire since he was three years old. So very few people have said no to Donald Trump. What he's hearing. No. Because she's saying no judge. I watch her in the hallways. She kind of whispers it Kazushi. She likes the quiet voice thing. But she says, no, no, no, no money. No wall to wall. But we'll talk to our security, right? So what's a wall? We don't Democrats want to offer decided shining. See I don't think that most security officials want wall ABC's are starting to say there might be someplace is to build a wall. Nobody should do. Is it a place where wall a high fence or some sort of is appropriate? What they're saying is we don't want a nineteen hundred mile wall. So somewhere between we don't want a nineteen hundred mile wall, and adequate does not adequate, but really good border security is where the compromise is gonna lie and to get the first you gotta open the government like you said you'd do in December and negotiate for a month. And you know, what two weeks aside negotiate because I think that they're doing a lot of negotiation. I think they know where they are holding eight hundred thousand workers without paychecks as ransom is a problem. And I, and I think that you know. Oh, look, it's gonna stop becoming a real problem when they decide to shut down Kentucky your portfolio week because they're not getting paid. And the TSA doesn't show up in the air. Traffic controllers say, you know, what you're not paying me about showing up. I dare you to take them to court and say you gotta show up without getting paid. This is this is not just the way it works in in a capitalist society. Well, let's take rocky in Wichita, Kansas. Rocky. You think that the dams are going to blink first? But you're listening to the Chris Hani. He seems to think that's not going to happen. Rocky. Well, number one. I I'm really glad that Trump shutdown Pelosi's trip. It's about time. She got treated like a regular person instead of the elitist that she is. I think that was a brilliant move. What do you think about the two weeks? Two weeks is all you get and we're going to hammer out a deal hate it. Okay. Trump needs to stay. The course they need to the government. But he needs to go on offense. Start deporting dot rocky put his tax return and doesn't get it. They don't want the government open. I pay taxes every Erica. File your return, and you're waiting for your check to get your refund. And you don't want the government shutdown hold on let dancer rocket rocky. Thank you for the call. Let's answer Rockies question. Chris he thinks Democrats here have the weaker hand. And I I agree that Democrats have the weaker hand on this even though everyone saying oh look at silly President Trump. Rush limbaugh. And and all the crazy talk radio people that that they say he's listening to they're all saying the same thing. And I think they're right. That doesn't the only idea that Democrats keep talking about the shutdown the shutdown shutdown, but the thing is America's talking about the border the board of the border and like longer and the longer we discussed the border the better it is for Trump. I agree with that. Let me explain this. You a metaphor that you'll understand comic books. Trump is general's odd. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer superman. Sometimes weakened in that relationship to general Saad with bus at a group of people and superman fighting general rod we'll try to save the people the president of the United States does not care about these eight hundred thousand families that are going without patriot killed last about south. Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer, the Democrats care about them that.

"This article company interests today from the New York Times shutdowns economic damage starts to pile up threatening an end to growth now, this is an article written by the New York Times. It's not an editorial. It's a news story. But their news stories are affected by their editorial judgment at the paper. They say they're not. But of course, we know. We know that their decisions are affected by their viewpoint. Right. The decision to run this story. Shutdowns economic damage starts to pile up threatening an end to grow this is aimed directly at establishment Republicans. The New York Times is saying guys how long can you take this listen to the wording of the article? It's it's worded as a warning is if they are is if it's a friendly warning to the president. Partial government shutdowns in flicking far greater damage on the United States company than previous estimated. The White House acknowledge on Tuesday. President Trump's economists his own economists double down predictions a doubled predictions on how on how much economic growth is being lost each week in the standoff with the Democrats. So the revised estimates. Are beginning to show real economic consequences the analysts and other projections from outside the White House suggesting that the shutdown has already weighed significantly on growth and could ultimately push the United States economy into a contraction. So we would have the Trump caused recession. This is for those wavering. Senators congress people. They are trying to there now, and you're going to see the mainstream media playing this up. I said that we we we were waiting for all of the stories about the hardships. Of the people who are getting their paychecks and the. The national parks that have closed down and things like that. But we haven't seen as much of that as I expected, but this is the tack that the mainstream media is going to use believe this will be the story of the next few weeks. How long can the economy hold up with the Trump caused shutdown actually hurting the economy and American families, do you and I could obviously if I asked for people to call in and tell me have you noticed the shutdown if you are a government employee who affected by the shutdown? Of course, you would notice it. I'm asking people have you noticed if you didn't watch the news, would you know, that the government shutdown? These this is for people who are not, you know, government employees, obviously. Would you know, if someone in your family of your cousin called you and said, oh, I'm out of work because the government shutdown? I'm saying in your day to day life in trying to do the things you need to do. But food on your kitchen table things like that. Get to work. Have you noticed would you know, the government was shut down? I wanna know if that is the case with you eight three three eight five two four eight six six eight three three eight five two four, Tom. The shutdown according to Frank Bruni. Says it is it is being caused by Ann Coulter. Here's Frank Bruni. She is that big threat that he's worried about and she also said a key phrase. There are keyword native self-esteem we talked about this before his self esteem is on the line. And it's on the line in part because people I can't culture of said if you do this. If you don't deliver on your promise, you are nothing you are impotent, and he's heard that and it hurts. Okay. So here's the question. I have for you. Frank bruni. And I've heard other people say this this is now a an official talking point on the on the chat shows is that President Trump is taking his marching orders from Ann Coulter. President Trump is. Making policy from watching Hannity's program. President Trump is actually. Willing to shut down the government. Because of Rush Limbaugh. He's taking cues from Rush Limbaugh. Ann Coulter from Sean Hannity. Do you believe that as a case? And do you believe there's anything wrong with that? I'm wondering what's wrong with Ann Coulter having an effect on the country and Coulter's a free citizen. She's a very popular author. She's bestselling author. She is very tapped into the way that a lot of average Americans feel why would it be any worse for Donald Trump to be following the policy prescriptions of an Coulter, and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh. Then it would be for him to be following the wishes of some government bureaucrat or of John Kelly, for instance, you know, pick anyone the generals and someone like Mitt Romney, what if you know Mitt Romney affected his decision making, which he doesn't obviously no one really pays attention to Mitt Romney anymore except the with the Washington Post and the New York Times editorial page when he writes, an anti-trump editorial. And then everybody else in the the mainstream media loves Mitt Romney, Dale of John casick who's actually just hired an agent, and he's gone to CNN. He used to be around here. You know, John casick had a show on Fox News. I think it was called John case America. Is it different? John casick. Different guy. Now, he's the CNN guy. Anyway, the establishment loves those guys, and they will give many column inches to them whenever they want to write an editorial. But the president has to be swayed by someone right? So what? Is wrong with being swayed by Ann Coulter. Being swayed by Ann Coulter or by garage, or by Sean, Hannity, or Mark Levin or any of these guys are Tom shillue. Just means you're being swayed by the American public. That's why these people have a talk radio audience. That's why they have a following. I mean did and cultures not talk radio. But she is a that's why she has a huge following. That's why whenever she goes on an interview the ratings go up she is kind of ratings gold people like to watch her a lot of people like to what they call hate watching. They don't like hand Coulter. But they watch her if she's on Bill Maher show because they can't stand her and they want tweet a butter. But I want to know what's wrong with doing what Ann Coulter wants to do. She's American and she represents a massive swath of America like half of it. Her political views align with about half the country. I think if you took a popularity poll she'd probably be like in the thirties or something like that. Because it would only be, you know, real real right wing conservatives who say they like her. But I think a lot of people who don't even like her personality like her policies. Same Donald Trump the ratings for the for the number of people who want to protect our border is a lot higher than Trump's approval rating, so Trump's policies work and Ann Coulter Ann Coulter's policies lineup with a huge swath of America. So when you're being swayed by you being swayed by most of the country, essentially what's wrong with that. Frank bruni. And coulter. She thinks it's okay. Does she wishes? She influenced the president more. I suspect people, by the way, this is an interview with vice news on HBO. And it's Michael Moynihan, a brilliant guy who was a Red Eye regular, she you're gonna recognize his voice, and he's a great interviewer. And he's interviewing Ann Coulter. I suspect people think of you and say, here's the kind of bomb throwing communist who has been on the same side of Donald Trump positions. What people don't know is. I actually believe it. Well. But you've been in contact with the president's you had some influence in the president's immigration policy. He reads myself as everyone should I've been advising the president whether on Twitter columns, or in private conversations that you're not allowed to know about since election day. I'm like the good witch in the wizard of Oz. You've always had the power Mr President. So she wants him to take action and she wishes he was more influenced by her. I don't know how much she talks to him. She wouldn't say she's cagey about that. But basically, she says he follows her he reads her Collins, he knows when she she. He probably watched advice interview. And I'll give out the number eight three three eight five two four eight six six. I have more clips of Ann Coulter and more to say about her. But what did I just open up this conversation now with Colin because it looks like he says, she doesn't represent the GOP or most of the GOP Colin in Delray Beach, Florida is that right? Hey, that's right. Might've been a voting Republican by entire adult life. And you know, what what I hear what I hear you say that Donald Trump should listen to Ann Coulter. These are people who have done more damage to the Republican party any people that I can remember lifetime and were talking this party of my. The moderate Republican or even right of Senate Republican party has been hijacked by right wing Republican. And really really crazy, right? Bring Republicans who are capable of compromising on anything. We have a president who doesn't read. We have a president who gets news for Fox News, FOX in the morning. We have a president that is. All over the map every day. Guys. I don't know what else to tell you. But I I can't subscribe to this anymore and to suggest that an colder is the answer. Why does he called me later zone ideas? Listening to Ann Coulter. Rush Limbaugh doesn't believe the things. He's an entertainer just like your entertainment. Well, we're okay entertainers rookie, but call what should we do say like, for instance, at the border? You would you say your your politics lineup with the Democrats on the southern border of the United States or Republicans more. We know we need more control. No question about it. I wouldn't disagree with that. I'm just saying that, you know, there is no moderates lift in this party. You talk about Mitt Romney, listen for all his fault Mitt Romney since a very intelligent guy. And oh, I think he's a very, yeah. And he ran a very poor election last night. He didn't do very well. But my point is. But here's a moderating figure in the in the party. You know, he he can he can listen to other people as I can listen to other. I can listen to the other side of the aisle. If this makes sense, then I'm on board with it along the border because that's the biggest issue Coulter's this issue came about because of the border so on the border. We know we have to have border security. You say should we have shoot? We have the big issues are the wall. Should we have a barrier on the on the southern border or not not a barrier? I think that we need border control at a barrier. What I think the barrier is not necessarily a bad idea at all. I'm not disagreeing with what some of the policy. So you just want to get the policy you want border. I mean, you, you know, a barrier. You know, it's not the be all and end all but it's part of it. And do you feel about chain migration should change it from family family, chain migration to merit based migration? Are you for that? I think that there's a lot of really, you know, here's what I don't like, I don't like all of these people being vilified as monsters and drug addicts and horrible people. Because most of these people are not they're good people that are trying to change their life. No does that mean, we need to open up orders and milk. No. I mean, obviously, we can't let everybody in this country. So there has to be on a control, but we have to look at it objectively. And I think what Trump is doing which is what he's done from day one, which is to install fear is whole. In everything he looks at. He he gets people riled up by using fear. The sleep Nate people, and there are people in this party who are easily frightened, and you know, and we're using spurious arguments that the sport are being over. We're being overwhelmed by hordes. Horrible, rapists, and killers. That's not true. So in other words. My point is is that I can't subscribe to this hardy anymore. They're so right way. And they're so crazy that there's no moderates, there's no thinkers, there's no I look at Reagan with my heroes. Electric all liked Reagan. We'll call it. We got a lot of points in there. Thank you for calling calling liked Reagan. I went down the list he is for a barrier. He wants to look at merit based changing the, you know, the merit based. The family based immigration to to a merit based immigration. He he wants to control the border. Policy-wise? He agrees with Rush Limbaugh me Ann Coulter and Donald Trump and he likes Ronald Reagan. I think Colin was a perfect example of what I've been saying that most of the Trump stuff, it's it's personality stuff when it came down to a came down to things like the anger the fear. I mean, just saying anger and fear. He says that the. Trump appeals to fear. Well, politicians, they all appeal to fear. You know, I remember when Mitt Romney who caller was praising was was accused of fearmongering over Russia by who by Obama. He said the eighties called they want their foreign policy back all politicians. Now, you gotta admit that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have been fearmongering themselves. So it's a style thing. Call agrees with policy on Trump and he agrees with policy on Ann Coulter. Eight three three eight five two four eight six six Tom Schiller. We'll be back. Give.

"A show with a unique look at politics, culture religion. And Lord, it's Tom shillue. Tom Schiller back with the Tom shillue show. Discussion of the politics of the speech, the president's speech last night in the first hour. And now the new developments are that the president had a meeting with Chuck and Nancy. I guess Chuck Schumer now is. His complaint is that the president slammed the table and stormed out of a meeting. The president admits he stormed out of a meeting. He tweeted out. Waste of time. And he said just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy total waste of time. I asked what's going to happen in thirty days. If I quickly opened things up, and you're gonna improve border security, which includes a wall or steel barrier. Nancy said, no I said bye bye nothing else. Works now Chuck Schumer gave gives this speech in front of the White House. And he said we saw a temper tantrum. Because he couldn't get his way and walked out of the meeting. He just got up and said, then we have nothing to discuss. And then he also said any sort of slammed the table when leader Pelosi didn't agree with the wall. Sort of slam the table. Now. Do you care? He sort of slammed the table. Do you care slammed the table, really hard? Do you care if he yelled vice president Pence, by the way, went on the record as saying he doesn't remember the president? Raising his voice in that meeting at all do care. If anyone threw a tantrum d-calif, if anyone got angry one would think that this is about the time that you would start having shouting matches with people when the government is shut down and people are talking about a either a government crisis or a border crisis or both. I think the president is meeting to both of them. Let's talk about the border. We had a lot of we get calls and people say if you only knew about the border feeling knew what went on at the border, and I've been saying to you guys. Look I've been down there. Talking to people my parents live near the border. So I was out there doing thanksgiving. I spent some time on a ranch. At the Chilton ranch with a guy Jim Chilton, he's got a big ranch. It's a big old fashioned ranch. And I brought my trustee recorder with me, and I recorded some sound Jim Chilton had me on the ranch he showed me around the property. We actually rode horses. It was very cool. So he's got a real Ranchi. He was a lot of it ruse just a fun meeting. I wasn't there doing Fox News reporting. It was a casual situation, but he showed me around the ranch showed me as his horses. Some of the cattle and how he keeps track of them every everything like that. So here is me. On the Chilton ranch. We're on the Chilton ranch with Jim Chilton, how many go over the acres for me, again, if you could are ranches fifty thousand acres and eighteen thousand is owned by the state school trust,.

"Tom schiller. Okay. So here's the tweet from Donald Trump. It's interesting, and it has interesting content in it as well just left a meeting with Chuck and Nancy a total waste of time. I asked what is going to happen in thirty days. If I quickly opened things up are you going to approve border security, which includes a wall or steel barrier. Nancy said, no I said bye bye nothing else works. So. They're saying, no. So they said. This was their line for the past week, Chuck and Nancy said, and they said it in their speech last night. We will negotiate with you on border security. But you have to open up the government. I. So he said to them, apparently, we'll see what their angle on this is. But there's no reason to think that this went. Differently than he's describing it here. He said what is going to happen? If in thirty days what's going to happen in thirty days of I quickly opened things up. So he's going to do what they said he's going to open the government, and are you going to approve border security, which includes a wall or steel barrier. She said, no. So she has no plans to negotiate. She says steps absolutely not. Eight hundred three eight five two four eight six six I think they are actually boxed in. I think Jason. It's his right. Betsy in Beaufort, North Carolina. Hi. Are you doing? I'm good. Thank you. How are you? Good. And and so what do you think here of the latest with the president walked out of a meeting looks like they're still not negotiate it? Well, I. But I'm not not my honestly, my biggest thing is the. For me personally. It's because people are, you know, people are saying well the. Funded, but we are still haven't they know their. We're not funded. You got the TSA and all that. The bargaining chip again. Every time. And you know, it's just it's it's really hard to put into tomorrow. I'm sure people can imagine. But it it makes me mad to think that something that we're trying to do to stop illegal immigration illegal people from coming into our country. Those people are more important to Pelosi and Schumer than the people that are here. In their country and the things safer our country. Yeah. And he could he could he with the swipe of pen could he add all coast guard units to the an essential. Could he just do it? I think so, you know, with homeland security, and so you think of of security, obviously, I can see why that is connected with the wall. I mean, I do get that. But you know, when they're not suffering the people in congress are getting paid, regardless. And you know, they're not having to feel this pressure from people. We we have bills to pay. You know, my daughter did ask me what happens if we don't get paid. Well, I really don't want to have to discover that. Well, let's hope they get on this quick Betsy. Thank you for the call. I hope they get on this quick, obviously, Betsy obviously from the coast guard. And I'm surprised they're not on the whatever part of the coast guard. She's working on. I would I would hope they are all essential services, Brian and Raymond Mississippi quickly. Hey, Tom, thanks for taking my call to kind of switch coastguard is under department of transportation, but in tasted national emergency..
