Pretty much 0:3 am crossed a stolen from the pledged to support the candidate. Donald Trump. Out right said he wouldn't Casey said he couldn't. Or is crews and they basically coached their phrase by saying in I couldn't support anybody. That. That would hurt the country. So that's of of airy ethereal phrase you get in the W main sea otter mother had to cruise was even. The the one that was closest. To saying he would support the Republican nominee I think he said he will consider. Carry. So oh you know I think this thing and I'm a Republican is rapidly coming apart at the seams. Between Republicans themselves I think the media's levee complicit in and in terms of you know this thing about it that. Bright boy reporter and they they campaign manager. Getting arrested for grabbing her arm more and trump says she grabbed mine and we should ever arrested two. Talking about the lives. To have a wireless are meeting or vodka trump says well he started it and Anderson Cooper sizzle with elder respect and kind of like what a five year old would say.

Good morning. You're thoughts the town hall meeting last night. Well I mean I. That senator created. Actually it's very good job that connect dean on a personal level with a lot of voters at saint. One of the things that you know senator cruise. Ten to do is come off as its theory an actual. And and sort of theory ideological. And not always. Very personal. No emotion with me it seems like with Jimmy's very. Robot making a he's a very Smart man and like you're saying it's psyches arguing the case before the Supreme Court almost. Yet no doubt and I think it would really fascinating hearing last night. His relationship. With his mother and sort of all the ways in which he. I'm kind of admired her and consider her as. Really a leading light in his in his life and men. Also his conversation. You know about the scene his sister to a drug over. And me in to target different contacts. He had this very personal. Conversation with some of the voters in the town hall let up at a very impressive. And people didn't watch it at one point he talked about his mom his dad was a drunk and that his mom purposely did not learn how to type because she says. He said she said that you welcome me to make it clumsy but that if she did know how to type. She was going to be characterizes stereotyped as secretary and added somebody said they sweetie can you type this morning. She could actually say no I don't know wow but I can be a computer program here if you want Mena that it was a intersect. It is this with Ted Cruz and the U says his sister died of a drug overdose in his mother and not tighten story his wife her success. It is this and I try not to be cynical Larry I really don't but is this a direct attempt to. I guess he gained the women with whom Donald Trump. Is so unfavorably. Portrayed or in the light dean he's got a high and favorable with women is an entrance. Well that's right I mean certainly. I'm Donald Trump is losing favorability among women. Sort of the longer this campaign has gone in his become more and more obvious that. He seems to have very. It you know mad men ish type perspective about who women aren't what they are and what there. Kind of value is in the world. And and I think. Certainly his opponents are why it could be reaching out to Republican women to those women who are conservative. And essentially try to Dubai. Then Republican Party which age gender gap that it's a Smart strategy. And I'd certainly. Would imagine. That senator Cruz who's buried. Thoughtful and calculated and his front very disciplined camp campaign has then looking at. It's actually comes up the Republican situation is no doubt a hot mess. But on the other side you get to choose between us soon to be indicted criminal and perverted socialist. Don't like to bring an avalanche of bill will at least it's a it's a unbiased and our objective evaluation of them. The democratic side but. Herself you know those Hillary Clinton's going to be indicted or not she certainly has not been. And this did meet you know it is like a jobless view a job interview Lara. The other guys socking doesn't make me better. Yes I mean I can't saying the problem now is that just like with the job interview. You know are you going to reject our candidate and that you have to start over in the search process right. Most often. But if the only guy that error again any other offices and hire somebody you don't like that you stuck with for four years. Yeah I. Mean I think one of the things that is going to be very anxious about the treatment let me just respond to it to the democratic side of the ticket. I mean. It uses a complex. Issue if you are. Somebody who is the Democrat and who is looking at the party because wow. You know Secretary Clinton is carrying the majority of party's support. There is the reality that she did not win. Nomination in 2008. There are many people in the party who are not content. With the Clinton legacy. And obviously some of those people are standing behind senator Sanders. But there's not a whole other group of people. Who just simply want senator Sanders because he represents more. Of their progressive values and and I do things. Especially in places like the midwest where you do have some. Kind of what I consider to be moderate. Pragmatic. Democrats. You know people who run more anti. And Ed Rendell who has governor. Pennsylvania and the process chair of the RNC. You know. There wailing maybe beef with the clintons and certainly and rent out that Clinton's largest champions. But at another level a lot of the people who supported. People like Greg now. I'm want politicians who are not necessarily. As. Sort of caught up in the whole legacy of the clintons and all the scandals than men around with them for our you know couple decades now. I'm more with Lara brown won't come back to six a winning Sony Yemeni questions 87 87 if you wanna text in any questions or comments when we come back. Com Monday at the highlights of it for me was it was elder respect isn't that may answer a five year old would give them what I love about that is. When you say it was elder respect he needs it would every 16 and only three time now Devin WL traffic. And I've been treated very unfairly. Given exam unfairly by a group. And I think by basically the RNC the Republican Party the establishment. Donald Trump on CNN last night during a town hall meeting thanks CNN for live audio. I don't know Larry Brown professor in the graduate school political management at George Washington University I presume Mueller candidate and party neutral. So what has Donald Trump been treated unfairly. By a the Republican Party in myelin managed to remind me to get my interesting theory on Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly. OK so I think it dot com has been treated. That way and me. Hostile. Takeover type of candidate would be treated by political party in other words. Political parties like to promote their own they want to promote somebody who has been loyal to the party and a part of the party. Force there entire political life. Donald Trump has. Long not men or Republican he is not very conservative. He is sort of be Johnny come lately to politics and he has tried to essentially take over the Republican Party and say. You people are that the follow me. So is there any surprise to me that the party has pushed back and used rule. And then Donald Trump is being dumped by delegate map I'm not really this is party politics at its core. We're gonna have to an end in terms of Democrat and Republican we constantly get danced for. Criticizing either once I guess who must be doing the right. Guy. Because he had everybody angry that means you know you should start looking for another job not the point when we come back only ran might Donald Trump Megyn Kelly theory by right. And I give Yang and it concerns and Jerry Lawler and Andy Kaufman from back in a day. The day up 630 more with Lara ground professor and graduate school political management. And GW. George Washington University I wanna hear from you all at 2601870. And that is. About the Republican nominee will you raise your right hand and not Renee and vote for them no matter who it is. Right now time for Devin WL knows what they've public. Beautiful sunrise coming up in the eastern sky David and you know they say your red Knight it's that I reds guide nights it was still light. Reds guy in morning kill them. Really no other there's something about dawn and that excess pounds. I think I'm I think I'm still in the town. It was artistry as mr. That isn't going on in me and I'm hearing a ghost. And confused and a coral snake with that that's what it is blackened yell kill a fellow at the top red sky in morning sailor take warning rents sky had not. Don sailors I don't know now. Yesterday some sad news. Genetic impossibility. But it was sixties meeting bears and this is a and then. Now listen this talk. OK okay. Identical cousins and you get that by guys you got some kind of genetic solutions and so if you heard that. If phrase on sign held where. The Steinfeld is hitting the relationship with a woman they cries about the wrong things. That's where the line came from a hot dog made her lose control there is a line in the song. Says that in that is. Guillen to bomb the patty duke show and it lady died yesterday in and she was and unfortunately too gifted actress yeah. He has got one academy awarded sixteen for the miracle worker which you when you see that work it's hardly it was sixteen year old doing it. And I just wonder she was bipolar world for life and her first TV role was Alicia had started on Broadway before that was. In essence playing two people that we're polar opposites the cousin was from Britain and is very reserved half and the her. Her herself she was like wild and all that kind of stuff so I think it's interesting that. She had bipolar but in those roles. She was playing two different opposites are two different ends of the same person view with you of course don't remember the Patty Duke here too I guess is runs an exit. When when they said that she had passed Houston who I think it was one year old suddenly it's it's on we're coming back room quickly Lara brown and it's not really a fun fact because. The Portland Bellini passed away but her son was Sean Aston who was rooting. So there you go coming back talking politics of the Lara brown on WW. 646 Tommy Tucker talk in the Lara brown professor politics at George Washington University. Political management actually professor and graduate school political management. Professor before we get to my foolishness about. Rowdy Roddy Piper Andy Kaufman David Letterman the eighties etc. These of the Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly the saga about the caucus it's coming up in North Dakota a lot of people think. North Dakota like the American American some oh what difference can they make but they can make a huge difference. Well it's interesting because. In North Dakota which is actually vote means. Republican state convention convenes. And essentially what you missed 28. Delegates. So it is that closed caucus is. You know like good and delegates 28 and they will be back. So it should be a really fascinating. And at an event this week and an unlikely it is. When we look at all of these close contest mean look at who's been doing well. This is probably something weird those people. We will have leaned toward tech crew. In toward the rest of the Republican establishment as opposed to down. But if there. Uncommitted lawyer is that's phrase used. Together officially underground which unloaded that statewide does not require them to do any sort of boat of the first vote. With. What those states. Primary or contest. Is. So I guess when a mask and why even have a Caucasus. We know they're going to be unbound. The union who's gonna believe they are right are you voting for delegates that are going to be unbound. Your ability for the delegates who are going and then go to the convention almost like loading remembers the Electoral College finally they are Italian peddling I'm really into that are not officially bounded by one of the things that Israel as you wouldn't necessarily be selected as a collector and much you're willing to support the party. Nominee and that this is where there's there is. A great deal of uncertainty in fact. Coming up in Pennsylvania. We will have these these four delegates unbound in the congressional district level. I am the primary and voting that's happening there later in the month. And nobody can win them they are. Pardon upon bound to be unbound. Yes I mean the interesting part about them is obviously they go in. Already been engaged party members already have means strong preferences. So that trek for the campaign. If Teddy bear person elected to beat the delegate which is a little bit different then just trying to actually win on. I new numbers out an unfavorable highly. Dom Donald Trump has a lot of a very high and favorable when it comes to women. And I'm gone back to the Megyn Kelly saying the minstrel comments he he made or implied. The feud between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump and and it back in the eighties come better wrestler. Rowdy Roddy Piper inning Andy Kaufman had a feud going to. I guess was the he would be if it ended it climaxed with. Andy Kaufman thrown a cup of coffee in the wrestler is phase Letterman on and off he was in honor not gonna sign not a result. Scam day where they were working with each other to try to promote each other. Now maybe I'm way off base here but it seems like. Both Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump are benefiting from this and that it keeps their names in the news and MA benefit Megyn Kelly more than anybody. Am I would like smoke and something I shouldn't be smoke in here. I think one day we do you have to remember about Tom is that he would never then positive with respect. Two when. About the only sort of positive. You know one in his life really is his daughter and I mean. Many instances going back over the course of his entire career his personal life. He spends his time kind of didn't treat women and healing them. Those were just another part of his property. Which which he controls. So they do it ain't bad. Whatever is there between Ian making Kelly. While it has probably band aid promotional aspect. There is something very real underneath it because. Meg and Kelly is eat and wives you know at Ares successful attorney cute about mean partner in the law firm before she became. Certain news anchor can't. She is really somebody who understands. What it is like in the upper Echelon for women in business can politics. I don't disagree with any of that and I know of Maine Kelly as successful. Attorney ideas and just think you know I get suspicious when I see Donald Trump him a feud with Fox News. Roger Ailes weighing in on it. It just sends money is there and gets money scam radar detain going in maybe as a promotion I'm thinking you know want this wouldn't be a bad idea but. Then again I'm I'm crazy not in my mind. I can't think that dobbs is not back calculated. That's the biggest problem and. Which brings me to is to his campaign manager being arrested or heaven. To show up for booking when it comes to assaulting that former bright part bright board reporter. Should he really be arrested for running the campaign. As well. I mean I I don't know. Fully why it is that the arrest charges were brought I understand there's video I understand that the video. Even marriage. You know campaign manager. Did push that journalists and that's completely inappropriate behavior. I'm campaign. I also think that there are certain. Larger issues to be adjudicated here. Well and question before run out of time professor died tongue in cheek gassed should be arrested for the way he's running the campaign because. What do you think of the way in thirty seconds he's running Donald Trump's campaign. Well I don't think he has I think Donald Trump is the only one running his campaign and every day it is as one of your pierce netted a hot math. Thank you Lara appreciate your time is always will talk to you soon. And answer I'd Lara brown professor of the graduate school political. Management at George Washington University 653 time now to the WL traffic. 657 Tommy Tucker may have cult Bob May a cult may have Maxima cult plus. And I probably saying that wrong and under a corrected on that the moment but I even looked it up. To see with the wrestler that was involved with. Andy Kauffman and David Letterman ones. And it was Jerry Lawler and I looked dead out but instead. I looked at but today surged which was a rowdy piper are Roddy Roddy Piper because. I thought that's who it was initially I looked at op and I still got it wrong but again. You'd rather have me here mess and stuff but and it's on the air traffic control tower somewhere. So also talk about the GOP town hall if you watched it and if you are a Republican. Will you support the nominee no matter who it is and are pretty jaguar opinion poll asking you. Nod will would should and I think Republicans and Democrats can vote on this one at 8787. In the results are. 75%. Saying yes 2.5 percent saying no when we come back. Talk about Louisiana. And the federal government. And taxed enough already and whatever streak you have to use because. So many people say you know what leave the federal government out of our business they have no right in state business but. Louisiana is very reliant on the federal government knew researches a by use state is the fourth most dependent state on DC which means. I guess if you factory in Washington DC that would make news. If there are 56 areas 56 states above as maybe 57 if you include the district of Colombo. A Colombian red states or more reliant on the federal government and Blue States. Was that make you think. If you're in favor of smaller government and government would you want Louisiana it'd take less money. What they take it given back so when you say it's our money that they're given as they really aren't because. We're getting a lot more back than we pay him. Tommy Tucker are a thousand different subs stuff led you withers on Wednesday morning evidently well.
