Thank you David Blake directly to Jeannie Zain of late I gonna get this in real quick Wisconsin Alabama playing on Saturday night I don't know if you saw I dared. It's it's funny but it's not Michael Caputo as safety goes tackle and Alabama running back in gets a needed again. And even have time to be evaluated there anything but he was not so goofy. He went lined up in the Alabama huddle. Candidacy got in a couple of animal Alabama players and I don't think he belongs here says when the sideline it to his helmet away. Oh little bit and us dale can cash in a thank you David's a genie is ano joins us right now political analyst professor of political science and Iona College. And a professor of campaign management at NYU. And is nice and have to spend. A little over Labor Day when this morning Jeannie. Same to you and thank you for working. Witness. Oh the GOP. Any thinly veiled attempt to get all of the all of the candidates. Not to rioted to primarily Vegas captured Donald Trump. And have him sign a document saying he would not run as a third party candidate. And I presume the other Republican candidates signed it as well or not yet. I don't know all of them but I think you're right the primary yet at one McDonald's company that was the one they were most worried about the economic the other candidates. Could possibly run as an independent and during the party at all. So old. Donald Trump you know I would think in the course of his. Business career hands occasionally weasel out of work and I don't mean as we make it sound pejorative I really don't let's say backed out. Backed out of some of the agreements that he's made and and maybe saying made some promises that he couldn't keep but I remember there was a a flap over a golf course that he built in Scotland anyway. Do you think he's likely non event. I think that the made the Republican Party look incredibly weak and afraid and Donald Trump and bill. After the first crack at the last debate when they egregious and done it if you're willing to commit to the Republican Party long term that they want to read it and I think Billy. To try to rein in I think he kind of like that as you noted he signed. And yet but it is not legally binding. That they acted organizations they're acting up the could not keep people. He could act now and tomorrow it independent if he wanted it. Felt it you know it made the party will be actually more than will be connecting to shut out. Has the upper hand going or completely pull out of New Hampshire and Iowa City he is you know twenty. 2930%. And nobody is near except. And cart that. By all accounts everybody knows about trapped as one reason he's the billionaire because these cheek. And yet settled and over again he wanted to spend his money can make Iran for. That. Money's important for the Republican nomination if he can run as an independent happened and an awful lot of money and buy his own account. It's not going to be winning campaigns that you think about it part of town trump would. You know billions and billions of dollars of money from Ron and independent campaign that there's no hope. As independent of the don't succeed in US presidential politics. He would may sell. All in all I think he's the winner from Mitt won the GOP look silly he signed the pledge he snapped and independent Heatley though. I think it really does speak to where they feel like they are at this point which that they feel like they act in court and out power when it comes to that that apple trying to. You Hewitt a conservative radio show host last Thursday. From China quiz Donald Trump on his the knowledge of world history. And it's pretty awkward to listen to but. EU at the radio hosts this trumpet news from you with general has seen Zuma money. Commander of Iran's -- marrow paramilitary cahoots borders. Is that he had been a gimme a little guy had Tommy needs as he runs recruits forces entrances OK yes the Kurds by the way have been horribly mistreated. And and a host has none no not the Kurds includes. The Iranian revolutionary guard scoots force. And he said yes Jesse said and I thought you said Kurds but he nine guide. Kinda. Defensive said he wasn't interested in god Chia. Questions that as far as the foreign leaders he didn't have to known because they'd probably be changed. By the time he be elected. Carly Fiorina on the other hand pretty much knew which he was talking about. And a reason I bring it up is so many resonance especially in today's world. They really do concentrate on foreign affairs because of the giant bureaucracy. That is the American government they have more of a chance of a change in those and they do the American government or American policy. So does it matter. To trump supporters whether he knows these people are not. To China supporters at least as far as we can tell that era constituency. Seem to embrace him regardless so I think it mattered it supporter at this point. And it shouldn't matter to Americans quite frankly he claimed that they have acted journalism but for people who don't know you you know you know and he is a well respected. There it is Republicans options of how he act. Everybody need corrected it you attracting properly for an interview with Hugh Hewitt Hewitt you know let me answer that not only added dimension if you want to be president of the United States. He's not. She's beaten not being you know. You'd people. You know march teen book somewhere and directed. Applicable these are serious questions and it imagine. It currently it means I'm human child. And enable the Internet so. You know I think it was hot here he certainly didn't know what he's talking about people to listen to interview you did incredibly awkward isn't it. You think matter and who aren't and trumpet. Expect journalists like you illiquid areas to do their cap and I'll asking you questions about how well prepared art can be the country. And Kate trumped up very well prepared to meet up. At least in terms of foreign policy he want to try to do what he does it change the focus complained that journalists. That's Connolly. You know there came in at the main issue that she was asked what they perceive reached by Katie Kirk but. You know he treaty aircraft in that YouTube is the area Republicans period conservative. And everybody backed away Hugh Hewitt is going to be one of the people on the camel. But you know and an angry angry trumpet that they hit you again. Next week I think that's going to be happy meeting you as well. That he's not gonna you know be plain ground when he's there he's an apple in the picked up questions that you want. Protect into the parking lot to make sure whoever said the company is a factory in. So if you can't prepped for an interview. What does that say about your work ethic when it comes to president being president because I can imagine with Donald Trump. And if you if you don't like this please call limit to 60187. Mean you can have your say as well. But Donald Trump my impression in the Oval Office would be if he got a a briefing every morning and he didn't like that he would chew out the person that brought it to him. Not for a second appreciate any of the nuances of that and I know what happened from there. Yet it you know and I think he'd be too. Obviously even when it comes to the political and he used that as they called Kart and makes it very attractive to people aren't that meat from that contingency in the voting population but beyond. Have little experience in government and that. Think that something you expected if you need anything rhetoric business or politics or sports you've got. Faintly. For the first debate you Munich QQ okay currently support sixteen there I get ten and nine other people on that second debate stage. Apparently he's not expecting much for his speech input into the off the top. And he'd been very bright very able to do that. Our questions about real serious policy can't be around them you have to know what you're talking about. I think many thought this that they real concern and we heard many of the other Republicans and it comes out pretty. Trumpeted including Marco Rubio who let these you know great actor foreign policy areas Beatty the note being picked it. But it be part of the deal at. Foreign relations committee for several years and they have studied these things technical term he's the things that he can comment. He can appropriately. And and you've got to wonder whether or else it would look like it. And opted you know and hear people listening to agree but he you know I'll try and EB you've got one. That he would be able to your caddie your board policy that all he told the art. Got higher inaccurate and the image before and I'll be I'm not quite sure they're hiring or what. We did. Be aware when he knows what to do that for these you know get the nomination he doesn't and again that he's at at this point he made it back. Get a taxi comes in timing going typical liberal why not drop. That's not them that's a lead choose a president why not. Successful people surround themselves with great people to be successful. Obama gets updates daily on everything does trump. No but again you would think if you're trying to get a job and you know on on an interview. You would be prepared you to go on line you would look you'll find a little bit about the company. Another incision your impressions usury ignorance you're implying a self made billionaire. Is lazy and knows nothing Miley knows about real estate. I don't know about. And in about foreign affairs and running a government. I just to be clear I'm a nominee re registered Republican. I am a conservative fiscally I'm a libertarian socially. And Jia I could support Carly Fiorina and I don't think it would mean neo liberal in terms of this to Dexter I could support. Doctor Carson as they did make me a liberal I could support. Chris Christie and that would make me a liberal but sometimes Jeannie these trump supporters. And I college cult like weird if you even mentioned the man's name. Then all of a sudden you your anti trump and I don't know why it is an I would love to talk to people at 2601878. And tell me what it is about Donald Trump that mystify you so much. And that makes you. Want him to be president so badly nine to Honeywell we come back we'll talk about Bernie Sanders there are some Democrats in the state. And in the audience about his rise on the Hillary Clinton and money is all about. Tommy Tucker back in a flash under the W. Jeannie saying no I guess political analyst professor of political science at Iona College new York and professor of campaign management. At NYU and a frequent contributor and a friend of Irish Jeannie and in some tax year a lot of them. Comparing Donald Trump to present and Obama and I don't think. Obama can run again tanning. No he cannot run again but that it I yeah Eric because they get. Pat and me is they rate compared then he got it means in terms of their upbringing or anything like that but in terms of the ways orders Rick. To the candidate because I can tell you in Westchester county New York which is that moment Hillary and Bill Clinton. And you look at 2008 she was our senator from New York she was very popular at that point. When Barack Obama came out in India in heat generated among liberal Democrat. Sounding Tinny and it got to the point even here in new York and receive their amateur. Where you couldn't even talk about Hillary Clinton or say anything critical about Barack Obama because the voters were cell. By about India and I think it'd be right yup they crackle pop. And of course when he got opt in opt that you need I mean I mean about 180 deport people start getting very frustrated. And I think we'd probably see something similar going in the tunnel turn people. Our theory supported the theory. I needed I think it almost did and we used to talk about the Obama team has put out there is some kind of got like Matthias they pocket religious imagery you remember talking about. The opinion that everything I think we see the same imagery and I'll try and unfortunately. Just not clear if it works that might fear is that he was elected president we have something Mary immaculate but Barack Obama. The only constituency. Port frustrated and even people who get deported that I think there is they've been there something about the people we meet again. From attacks on get neat. Attributes of Barack Obama that the things that people didn't like about him conservatives especially when he was first elected. Now they're saying well. Trump doesn't either incite we'll wait if you hated it for Obama how could you love it for him if it was a negative attribute. Yeah. I think an older you know that there Eric how much frustration out there and understandably. We have a congress that app the ground to a halt the that point you need to happen be highly transportation bill that we can use Arab realistic yet Andy at. It's people are very frustrated and I think. You know what voter we sometimes get it accurately see into kind of wish that there was somebody. Like that could come in and pick this thing and people feel at me now trumpet just different enough heat he brings something different call after it politicians that are out there. And he could maybe she Washington to take you know I hope that's true certainly get elected I hope that true. But if history is any guide. Not probably that we that we should be heading and you know I think we all of the ticket that back it. Say if we want real change in Washington that change doesn't come through electing. Country and Obama but it comes through changing the them so that would be things like campaign finance reform and other things get it means that really. Ernie went out. And Jalen and let me tell a similar to talk about tomorrow. I am convinced that went swept Barack Obama into office loses hope. And chain's slogan and I think people looked at that beyond. Apolitical context I think it's got to be and got to mean of people in term of the day expectation if you will Barack Obama. That any thing I don't like in my life he is going to fix if I don't like the way my wife. Did it leaves the counter messy he's gonna fix that in a final like my butt non serious of I don't like my boss at work. He's gonna fix edit grocers are too expensive he's gonna fix that because when he saw hope and change. That's that's what they associated with a and I thought it was a brilliant campaign. Now I think and again we'll talk more about this tomorrow. I think Donald Trump is the Barack Obama that not only need Z catchy slogan. And Republicans are the conservatives in the country will believe and maybe the moderates the same thing nad here's a guy. Maintain seemingly from nowhere in terms of politics then all of a sudden. This man is going to fix everything after Barack Obama MI out on a limb on manner not. Absolutely agree and I can remember being back in India I think people forget back in 2008. When Obama was inaugurated. The amount of burger that was out there at the I would gonna be able to change. Everything. Hope to hope and change an. You know the only people were trying to walk that back by the way where his brilliant campaign managers from the start in helping American public that don't look at Barack Obama. He put any topic you can sustain problem that George W. Bush and ill informed. Look at that if you keep it or not they are out there saying yeah. It was kind of usable optical electric make it they tried to block. That's when I tried to look at that I can. You know it makes sense but in that you know it didn't hit people until a court he could. While the promises that he made it to come to fruition. And I think you're quite the same thing it hit the now trump I think the important to keep my. Child or. The winner this work you don't go into it and I as part. And that'll you know it can confront that reality they're Republican or Democrat liberal or conservative. And yet I think as voters we looked at that's not true but just the way. Moment daylight. Donald Trump needs slogan. In in terms of hope and change but something more conservative base and I think he's he could be liable was he Jeannie appreciate your time I really do. So greed did not. You have a great spectacle it. You to Jeannie Zdeno political analyst professor of political science at Iona College. Professor came management. Campaign management and and my you. An element of phone lines again 2601878. Wing and spent the last half hour here give me Donald Trump campaign phrase. That would be equivalent to Barack Obama's hope. And change one pops up on the screen here make America great again. I don't it was Reagan's or not but gained gimme your Donald Trump campaign slogan. Paneling Barack Obama's hope. And changed 932 little bit late time now for Devin WL first news and for that we go to David Blake made it sound as though that was a two war. Want to get there back to. Tommy Tucker. I'm on Thursday morning and there is Donald Trump. Needs a campaign slogan President Obama here as was. Hope and change. Carry so we need a campaign slogan for Donald Trump with the liking her you don't. So many tax it and make America great again somebody else accident take our country bank are carrying another question for you back in the days he says ask this. It might have come from Mad Magazine I don't know which used to be one of my favorite he would periodicals. And out explains a lot yes it does. Oh make America great again is is slow on it pocket from way to better net though. Yeah how about. It is my hair really well. Now okay now sorry mom. But anyway. Would you buy a used car from this man. And I would ask you. Would you buy a used car from Donald Trump. Sure you what. If it was a in way if Chevy cavalier. And is it look at barely drove this car the engine is used good is new give me 101000 its viewers 9000 viewers. Would you buy a used car from them try out of the deal a status on entice a year while on business plan. Would you buying a used car from Donald Trump. Nicaragua and nods and and he's he's a shrewd business ranked. Plan and how that translates into being the president and I would love to hear from you. At T six though things happening right and how about Hillary Clinton here by year's car from her now. Our current. Same problem well I confining history because it would be tied up and server. Cores and Bernie Sanders probably give it to me. I don't know we may get eaten banana wrong road understand in terms of being the businessman. That be an interesting question actually. In terms of Tom any candidate would you buy a used car from any apple would you buy he's gone from Bobby Jindal. Yeah it would not. They have some any hazardous or anything would you buy you stuff from Ted Cruz. All right you can go on and on. I don't know ten Arturo rubio I would probably buy a used car for a songs he took the water bottles on the back. Who else would we. Crews. Casing giant is about used car from him not a guy Carly Fiorina I would buy a used car from her because. If you look at what she did it Hewlett-Packard made the card probably terribly undervalued and you'd probably get this deal. I can't think any others they assume any right now it. Difficulties six no 170. From which candidate would you buy a used car. And from which one would you not. And so many text in and says. The Whig Party with Donald Trump is making it come back. But I think they hit an eight Jeanette. Slowed and he's already got when you're fired. And balances in the Chrissie. That's a relation to the government Ortiz him. Or reverse the change. Smoke and mirrors would be a good campaign praise for Donald Trump. Donald Trump Tony sixteen let's give his four years so he kind. Sony finally stopped running T 601870. Let me go. She's in long rub. In home hey WWW. Good morning the more you Dylan from your car although I looked like an out of the great white hype. A lot of great white hope that we'll do this on campus for doubtful. I know on the tape right now if you disagree with what rob says. Don't call him names. Don't call me names. Come up with something of you groan and call it in Sierra sane in the great white hype. On a green white apple and so we did pretty the real legal. Yet. Going to be a critical to buy a used car from him Knowles went by Hillary. I'm part about the use what little luck who believe that he's a little where they go back for the trojans don't want to digital audio that you. Are you agree with you a little bit but in the old Sunday but what about it but now with box. How about them crawl. Wait are you saying that Hillary just goes back and forth to churches a little lady that drives a car. There on the popular and regardless more than usual working at that moment of the concordia and. Adding and talk in more about. Trust worthiness than the actual vehicle Robson what do you think. Is there any Republican from whom you would buy a used to our court Marco Campbell on the Colombian core group on debt. Forgot about him not tonight second I'd definitely buy use government thank you and rob. Oh. Again. They have that they probably don't look so good hit a couple of copies of the game because there. While so to the contrary and for wall opposite what would you want them. At this divisive and music I'm probably will be more like the ability of the view that believes that these Democrats. I'll let republic of the won't do them properly at levels that Barack Obama but through Barack Obama has been more of it. But he about it is that no single put simply this it Mo like. But I think I think you'd be using opposite I think. In a lot of ways resonant Obama was handled with kid gloves because it was sampling have blank. Down in front I think because is a Republican. The media would just go after him like wolves. I don't think about the mean it was a congress who went on the problem at the would you lie. And now to damages and guys. This good morning legal like a lot of ultimately mean good. Record in the column to market that they did his wife and children. And they'll be back cover that topic what he'd get more committed to become if you like. Malaria idiots all over rob I'm glad you culled or are excellent immigrant Labor Day I immoral we come back to six 1878. May get a tax conceded Jeb Bush would give you the family car. I think it's I think it's interesting who would you buying a used car from. Of the presidential candidate so Centex come in about Donald Trump's campaign slogan pride not apologies. Let's make a deal electing me. Mom and Illinois ailing at time when more here. Huckabee yes trop hell no would be an interesting slogan for drop. We'll be back Devin WLI we're we're kind of having some fun here asking you. What candidate you would buying from whom would you buy a used car and which one. Wouldn't you. And I sit earlier that it wouldn't buy one from Bobby Jindal but the main reason for that is. I would know where to find him if I had a problem. I know it certainly would not be Louisiana. But they are 49 other states. And if I had a problem with the use scars certainly couldn't drive around all 49. But he Texan and if he did if he did buy a used car from Bobby Jindal would come with I await eggs. Back to the United States. Is one text that comes in. And I were read you some others incumbents need to go. No used car from Chris Christie trumpet as yet to explain. Other than bullying. Ask. Obama. I ask I've mono which he thinks. Tommy you know Sears is Donald Trump six so much oxygen another room a quality candidate doesn't standing chants. From. Restore open reverse the change. Some government for the people not the politicians. And Larry one more for you. Monetary debt that's obscene. Com. America if you wanna winning nation again and play that trump card. As loaded these Republican leading candidates and I'll go through and tell yet. From whom I would buy a used car and whom I wouldn't and you can play along at home I feel like Chris Christie. In. He Yan but it wanna check first Ben Carson absolutely. Jeb Bush. Yeah I'd buy one from him Ted Cruz. This. In you know. Mark ever since former IRS commissioner I'd be afraid to do business with him Carly Fiorina I'd buy it Mike Huckabee I'd buy it Lindsey Graham. I'd buy it Bobby Jindal may not feel about that John days ago Ohio governor I'd take one from him or buy one from him. George Pataki. Former New York governor. Tom Rand Paul know Rick Perry know Marco Rubio yes. I'm Rick Santorum. That is my opinion that I would love to hear from me some of attacks eminent thank god Donald Trump doesn't have experience in government. And it's interesting that a lot of the com the text that are still blaming Obama or making it seem as though trump is running against. Obama. Com. They're saying like Obama and have any experience when he came in Mo but trump will be better while. It cuts both ways done another one career politicians have gotten American nowhere. Time for a fresh start in let's at least see if it works. And I am I campaigning against Donald Trump or for anybody else but I think historians will tell you. Jimmy Carter went in a very. Good man unmanned stuck to his principles. And he tried to do anything as such anything without compromising and he didn't really work is that's not the way to game is played will be back DeVon WL. I Tommy Tucker debit WL I hope you have a great Labor Day. And Indians and taxi from people who were taken my. Farcical buy a used car from candidates getting very angry. Obviously you haven't looked at the legislation that was passed by President Carter he accomplished a lot more than Reagan. You just don't hear about it. I guess a closely kept secret. You know absolutely nothing about Ted Cruz and Scott Walker. But you're disparaging against them you watch and listen to too much network news. I just aren't about mining used cars so it's you know labor day's turnaround here. In terms of trump and his campaign slogans. Hair today gone tomorrow. And allowances hubby says be aware of that hair. Allowances trump equals Nagin. They would do a whole show one day on. If you think the business people would be better running the government why is that. I really do they re great garlands come up best to go on I think if you. Or someone you know is on Social Security disability could you survive if you payments or reduces college worth the cost. And gentrification of you won't neighborhoods thing if shelved in Jordan David and Diane you. May get a great Labor Day.
