We'll known to delve into Donald Trump's latest comments about the president Barack Hussein Obama being the founder of prices. Well we come back some historical perspective Tommy went on to W. Any Friday morning we'll keep you apprised of everything you need to know as soon as you need to know citizens the information comes in. Are now we're talking to Bruce Jones and Middle East expert Duke University professor work of the State Department from 2009. 2011 morning anchors are good thanks taking time with the pleasures so it will be busy with the rain but I'll one talk about this because. Hugh Hewitt who is apparently conservative radio show host. And I'll be honest I didn't know anything about him until Republican debates. Please talking Donald Trump and yes in trying to get the chance to walk back comments that. A rock in I'm quoting him now Hussein Obama was the founder of races. And Hugh Hewitt's enacting what you mean when I understood it means that the Obama administration created the vacuum that they lost the piece of led the creation of crisis. And he said no I meant he's the founder devices ideally was most valuable player again and most able player award gamer too by the way Hillary Clinton. And he said you know it's that we can't tell me that the president sympathetic eyes and he's not trying to kill him. And he's Johnson I don't care. He was the founders he is the way he got out of rock was. That was the and that that was about me devices okay. On historically Telus crisis came and currently Versa if you want an. Percent of viewing get and to the the politics of this are not but it seems as though for whatever reason. Politicians. And that's both Hillary Clinton Donald Trump whom and view. If people like them they are somehow granted. Did the privilege of infallibility. And I'm Adam and any mature at the Pope is infallible. Let alone presidential candidates so. Explain if you will how prices came to be. You have to let me just say you know with what you said about what trump saying I mean we really needed debate about crisis this problem more. Whatever happens after I decisive and after a Qaeda. That is going to be successes that even if we defeat crisis in this series to date and and what prompts doing doesn't really help that it is the crazy. It's one thing to disagree you know and Republican Democrat but the best way I think that we came out. What was called al-Qaeda and rock the founder. Would the leader of that movement which if you if you actually Trace it back came out of the US invasion under George W. Bush and the guys are probably. And they died this buildup in Iraq moved into Syria. It's a fair criticism to say that this late in Syria help prices grow. And the Obama policy you know can be criticized as strengths and weaknesses. And then it grew and you know the president was way off when he called it gave me. But since then you know we've been making significant progress we've taken back. Such as we we have our allies. You know significant metal and they controlled Iraq and Syria. Last week we did the same and in Libya. So let's have a healthy debate. About what's the best rated fuel prices over there in including the terrorism threat they pose here in Europe. Elliptical beyond this really crazy distorting. Not use solutions. Accusations like. I think you've summed up what it was those feel and reason I was so angry about the as late as serious situation calls for serious conversation. And in serious decisions that have to be made that involve human lives American lives so all all of this. Crap we don't we don't need all of that and it's not helping anything in and plus it's making him look in my opinion. Foolish side I don't know why he insists on doing that calm you mentioned even if we. To eliminate eyes wide amount however. There's something else gonna pop ups I mean is this the new normal we will always be facing radical Islam. For a long time an effective coming from Islam and we've had a from from elsewhere but if you think you know in Google computer terms al-Qaeda is the one point oh. And I this is the 2.0 there's going to be a three point and it is the long term struggle. That frankly isn't just starts the countries in the region. It's kind of existential affects their survival you know affects our security. And yet going to be with that for a long long time we have to find a way to. Push it back control it. Do you look at headed off with the past. But the reality is it's not it's just not gonna go way no president can make it go. And that's a question Bruce with over let's go ansari we don't have more time but. Is this something that can only be contained and not eliminated. I didn't do what can and you can you can reduce it and put it back. But if they get better though it takes is 11 crazy person you know issued at the nightclub and Orlando or San Bernardino. And and you can't possibly about an percent elimination that we just have to really do the best we can. Thank you sir appreciate your time. Kristiansen Middle East expert Duke University professor he worked in the in for the State Department 2002011.

Nick in the lowlands higher and got a W out thanks for calling. Today I wanted to defend stroke. Anything say anything saying it all out by the league for what he's set. And it that are called for and then come back. Any example of what. Got an idiot for example worse. Hillary has done that data port. Yeah I cannot talk to our door one at a time. Every one are gonna say it. Beat Eric and you'll be great and here we it is how you eat reviled by. We easily take care I attacked a country that terrorism that we take them out even little. Individual tax will stop that we held out patent their propaganda which simple. Individual. Reform act like. It's not people from himself on the Internet that confuses me. That we. It was awesome and that's seldom on the Internet trying to stop somebody from posting something to the Internet. But at the source is the state sponsor all don't go out we brought in and then follow it. A cat will open that nobody without propaganda there was no sort might bring and what they are there. Terrorism can be eliminated completely. Well not completely but are there occasional. Though that Britain like in the U relate. But you know rarely. And then a year artwork out of wine every mean that they're not going to be. I were earlier times alarming incidence. Do you really think that Barack Hussein Obama pounded ices. Well now. I'm man enough hang on second Hugh Hewitt gave him a chance to back up and he said what you mean is they created were created. And as Bruce channel and just said they happened because of the vacuum of power in Syrian Iraq right now nod instead and all I meant he's the founder of vices I do. Somebody while net. Aren't are not. Completely. Research and there is no doubt. That they with a complete joke and so are calling on them. Out joke. And. I didn't even know about I don't know about Filipinos die so I'm asking you on the case. Ballot and that when you know about. Com politics he's running for election trying to create a situation where voters will vote for you can say being. Whatever you want to get elected and. Would you fall Hillary Clinton for doing the same thing. Lot of value that you can bet everything he said with something Hillary said and I you saying it's politics he can say whatever he wants. Which is oh yeah and where in Eastern Europe. That really. Oh yeah quite a real. Ought. Is fallible his front ever made a mistake. I am sure image which. I. I'm a look at me. Or watch. And or read that back. I'd still win Hugh Hewitt. The media gave him a chance to be accurate and factual here and he wanted to stick with the as narrative of no. Barack Hussein Obama basically I had to add a gathering in a garage or the White House 19 today let's find let's found prices let's start this group. And you think that's his campaigning and that the media even though the media tried to give him a chance to straighten it out. Conserve our idiot you'd think that they know are. And we like it. You've not heard about Hillary's emails. And we're. Actually at what they are accurate that she doesn't money. Felt that our security about the people who. Actual. Security. I'd want. I'd c.s they would run for president used to joke everything's easy joke around Biggio. I okay thank you 730 to run a late time now Devin W offers news's Chris Miller. I 740 Tommy Tucker talking Alexander cramp bird now from the very busy channel four double WL TV pinpoint weather center. What do we focus on a first off morning Alexander. What are we focusing on the north short this particular moment. Pretty much you know that's the area where we have now let's huge slot. Much of the North Shore under a flash flood warnings and I don't watch but no warning indicating it's happening right now. That will go until 1 PM since several hours war. Of this rain coming down probably contributing to the problems that we're seeing north of that lake south with the way we have plenty of rain too it's not anything like an easy commute out there or really that much better as side. From the fact that we're not seeing a lot of active flooding on the roadways or anything like that. At this point still though a lot of rain out there pretty much every location in our area is seeing rain at this point and again the heaviest out of the north. North Shore areas north of Philly. How much it Lauren Palin Amy we can still see your head so that's good. I'll watch how much rain have to have the different areas receive DN totals. You know some of the highest that we've heard are on in the let's see what the area more than eight inches has fallen. From last night the group the overnight hours into this morning and also frankly ten I think that's the highest that we are so far in our immediate area. More than nine Ames is about nine point 25 inches. It's what we heard a little while ago and it's still coming out of this kind of staggering in and out there for areas north of the lake getting closer to livingstone's day and Baton Rouge which can and outside our area. More than ten inches has. Know it's weird Alexander's element in the tedium and the back Kia. No listen I'm guessing you're looking at the screen since my. Tell me about it is this the train effect that's going on or not really. Well how could I mean you could kind of say that but really it's just that low that spinning right over us so right now it's just it's just growing up that waste your from the Gulf of Mexico and it's just. Not really can change very much of the next several hours so what we've been noticing south of the lake. It's you might have a pretty heavy downpour moved through and and it doesn't move. But north of the lake Christine on two continents and scale lose sometimes. Which is kind of just smaller scale. Rotation at least he with a little low pressure area developing kind of within this bigger area. And that's part of the problem we've just heavy rain staying in the Simi areas north apparently. So. We it is going. To move event I guess I'm asking is how much of a threat is this for the people live and have already seen nine inches and frank went in and. Oh yeah and the big tones and elsewhere. Unfortunately yeah IDC continuing today to let me off a little bit heading into the daytime hours on but some of those areas are still going to see those pockets of at least moderate rain not heavy patches of rain to. I think that'll continue through the day today again I really don't see it lacking not significantly over the next several hours at least. Mock something hinting that by this evening. Some spots may begin to kind of slack off Steve the rain. Either becoming much lighter maybe even you know drying out just a little bit briefly during the evening and nighttime hours. But there will still be more actually coming early tomorrow so yeah until we make it into tomorrow afternoon. We'll continue with the rain chance is pretty much everywhere and knowing it so bad for those like you study that already had several inches of rain. And any and your visibility and a minute but this is primarily in North Shore threat or should we in the south shores well. This housewares also under a flash flood watch all the way through tomorrow morning so I would still be here it's very winners out definitely. Right now again you know we've just seen them the heaviest it set up just out to the northwest at New Orleans still anyone does in a lot of rain you know the flooding potential. It'll it'll be there at least through tonight and into early tomorrow. Thank you appreciate your time and you this Alexander. And look lovely though. Alexander Crawford and the channel four pinpoint weather center well you judges noticed on the monitor issues. Around and talking with their hands I realized is the enemy. We'll talk more we come back how's the weather affecting new Yemeni. Any any news any reports you'd like to give us a 260187. Inning. And also we're talking about Donald Trump and his statements about the present and founding prices and I mentioned earlier that. Full disclosure I'm a registered Republican. And getting tired of explaining for him and I think he's gonna you know the people is texting me saying it was just a joke it was just a joke. If he doesn't stop it he is going to text he's going to joke is way into an embarrassing landslide loss in November. If he doesn't straighten out and fly right at least that's a way I see you may call Sam 45 Tommy Tucker back in a flash on WW well. I 750 Tommy Tucker we sit down we planned shows have a weather event happens and we throw it all out of the window and I'm sure that happens in television as well and we go now to Loren dale. One of the young as stable of talent the reporters at WWL whom we welcome to the area who is now in I guess a flooded Amy how Lauren. I am yeah we're actually on that Donald early out we actually get how to water. Here we're talking with one of the men and help out I guess that car was driving down the road get dot. Well into the flooded area. Right at the McDonald's eating meat and bound. Yeah I would that man that was are there that the water is being twelve feet deep. The man in the car it obviously is luck either buy it there it went out and hand. And Colin that they you know where it meaning flooding all across the area here. Twelve feet deep it's like you did did in the rudely. Actually belong right in front of the McDonald's here. Yet twelve feet right now and is it continue to warn me. Irene is continually coming out not raining and we got here. Or their side. That there raining or. All of the parking lot easier and that does get injured that. Highly BK apple thanks for taking time listen if anything happens where you give as well we've please. I'd Lauren bailed them WL TV. Reporter Morgan's continue our conversation running a little bit late wooded back to the phones but first we stop. And take a look at debit WL traffic. Tommy Tucker 757. Now I get a text here that says it needs to be even it's not. It's not last caller speaks for several guests trot has no tax Hillary lies. This is my thing. If either candidate Republican. Democrat. Or day independent Green Party whatever if they tell you. Is applied you don't eat it. Right. You decide for yourself. ER automatically presume that oh well he said it's fudge she said it's sludge down match a portion don't do that. You don't give anybody a pass just because you think that you'll hold people responsible for what each one says Hillary Clinton with the emails absolutely. She should have been indicted I think. But Donald Trump when he engages in his idiocy. And and refuses to walk it back he speaks off the cuff so yours is the problems I see you know take your calls we come back. The Donald Trump that spoke to the Detroit business club can't get elected on a pre re not the prompter like that. But the Donald Trump they'd just runs his mouth with these streams of consciousness things like Barack Hussein Obama. Founded crisis. You can't do this and what's gonna happen is if you defend him blindly and again going choke it down cousy said it was fudge. I'm going to tell you this. You go really choke come November when he loses inning remarkable landslide. Victory for Hillary Clinton. So I guess I'm asking you is if you like Donald Trump or if you support him or you hate Hillary. Or you love Hillary and he Donald Trump. Heavy granted either of them the cloak of infallibility that supposedly the Pope has in certain situations. I don't. And I think in terms of running your campaign and looking at a pragmatically. If you favored Donald Trump and if you want him to win the election. You'd better want him they shut his mouth and start acting more presidential. As passionate as he is but at least know what's going on. To be in this position and not know that Russia was in the Ukraine for two years is in inexcusable. And don't tell me he was joking about that because it be more fudge the.
