A happy voice over some discontent about can grind with you for just a second earlier this week on Monday, go and see the accountant find out what we're gonna dole. What we're gonna dole out? And it's not pretty at the lease imponded Rosen but a couple of weeks ago. Get this in what universe is this acceptable. In ours. That's that's a short answer. My mother is a home healthcare nurse, and she's a sane of woman in love her dearly. She's driving. Pulls out from an intersection in somebody's flying down the road to the north. In completely takes off the front of her car. In there going? Well, I mean, you should see the skid marks go for like a block. Somebody who's not going forty miles per hour. Definitely not thirty miles per hour. Takes off the front end of her car. And it's a nice vehicle. Couple years old and. Then the guy by counts of a witness. My sane of a mother in another witness guys skids into a corner, curb retaining wall, and then jumps out of his vehicle and starts running. In the cops. Find various shall we say paraphernalia in the vehicle? And all that to say in this happened to me about a year and a half ago. I got T-Bone on avenue q. Here in Lubbock coming home from the show.

"Hello, miss Leeson. She's a big fan of yours all sorts of stuff to get into today as we roll along on the program. Wes Rappaport Rappaport reports it's pretty cool. Whenever somebody, you know becomes famous in west Rappaport has become that in the state of Texas next star. And he will join us here in about thirty minutes from now, but this is where I want to start the show has been featured now across the state in different publications for an interview we aired with kill cylinder yesterday. Kill Seliger losses chairmanship today because Lieutenant governor who's all in on anything and everything Donald Trump ever said do you wanna go through that list? Opposite your that was my tag in. But it's not I will say, but he lost his chairmanship. But also gained a lot of Texas legend, you know. Yeah. Decks legend, right? And so he took on. You know? Media mogul, Patrick, you know, he says all about them headlines. Yeah. So this is where I'm going to start with all this people are surprised right now that. That kill cellular lost his chairmanship. But here's where I wanna start raven on was he ever not gonna lose his chairmanship was he ever not gonna be sidelined by Lieutenant governor in if you follow Texas politics closely or even check in every once in a while, which you know, is it kill Seliger on behalf. A rural Texas has been a thorn in the side of this Lieutenant governor who has no compass right now, politically he's lost. He's or less on a canoe that is Texas politics and completely misguided. Now people want to cite the show, and I took calls today. Oh, what do you do in there on that show? You're making people, you know. You're making west Texas lose position stick with me for one second. Who came up to the panhandle in tried to beat kill Seliger with two opponents who were virtually? Pretty much the same guy a one in Amarillo one in Midland in try to take him into a runoff who did that that was Alan blakemore who works for Lieutenant governor. That's who did that who took to Luton who took kill Seliger off of higher education and finance the Lieutenant governor who came out and said that kill Seliger. If he doesn't like his committee took him out of context, if he doesn't like his committee needs to let the Lieutenant governor. No. And the Lieutenant governor would replace him who did that Lieutenant governor spokeswoman that's who did. This was always going to happen. This was in the car. I'm surprised it didn't happen last session where the Lieutenant governor came in and took away kill Seliger's chairmanship. That's the news across Texas right now. Kelsey, Seliger losses. Chairmanship, and I don't know who is surprised about it. I mean, why would you be surprised now kill Seliger? Did was it came on this show? We aired the audio yesterday. And he said that the Lieutenant governor's spokeswoman Sherri Sylvester that he has a recommendation for MS Silvester. About her lips and his back end, which I think that was a really respectful way of saying that it was very family, right oriented. I way of saying I think the way in which is really confusing to me is how they're they're really attacking him right now. I really thought hold a whole thought that was a liberal thing. I thought I thought attacking someone's character is something that the left gained backing masculinity in in that. Okay. So look, you're you're looking at a guy right now Daniel the digital guru millennial. Yeah. Who voted for Donald Trump twice twice in the same election of form in the primary and the general, but I know this about Donald Trump, you cannot call. Back end and lips lewd. And also be a strong adherent of this president. Okay. That is a there that's disingenuous and it would take a bridge across the Grand Canyon and logic to make that play out. Why is this so personal?.
