How old Tommy soccer WW LA Hamas almond dot com. The morning game and good morning you know there are times I think in and they history this country where of ends. Trans. Send that TV where they come on the TV into your living room so it right in your lap well and when I mean as tension leading up to the debate last night what with everything that it happened with. Donald Trump in the video and comments to Howard Stern about his daughter which of all of those offensive. But. Those moments when they're waiting for the candidates to come out on stage you can feel attention in the debate and I'm pretty Shuler. If you are aware of what could feel that your living room as well aria. And to me it was a very unpleasant situations someone so that with. The level of disdain. That both of the people involved head for each other in the underlying current of tension and I say this on jokingly. It reminded me. Family gathering before the exiled me from the family. Oh really now that's pretty serious and hid it from that. I'd get up and take a prescribed calmed down peeled because society Regis yeah I don't know it was a flashback I don't know what it was it was very uncomfortable it really was. I think. Mine would talk to heal all morning about this bodies in one candidate Donald Trump Hillary Clinton and separate jaguar opinion poll. As some thoughts on and owning your which all have to say at first I think this at the end of it. I think Donald Trump was finished. Before he went into the debate all last night he was done. And he's still may be done but I think maybe he might have at least. Lent some plausibility. To his candidacy. Last night that navy. Harm he handled it well enough. So that at least they can still talk about it being a presidential radio and I'm just down ballot recent years back on some even footing or some some work closely about. Toward the end of it they they talked about you know scream Korda if you watched it now and at the end. They asked one candidate did the candidates say one thing positive about the other Hillary talked about Donald skids. And Donald says that Hillary never ever quits. And just the whole thing made me sick to my stomach that this one of these people's beat president for the next four years. Tech's guns in Donald Trump crusher she is done and it is all about opinion because nobody knows I mean it's all about I guess you'll watch the polls and see if anybody gets a bump. CU and Evans leading up to the next debate you tell me what you think T 60187. You want and as Donald Trump done or did he managed it. Live to fight another day 612 Tommy Tucker 260187. AM. May we announced it atlas and thirty days now I think until Election Day one of these two is gonna be our president. He has said that the video doesn't represent who we is. But I think it's clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who we it is. I will tell you that way and Hillary brings up a point like that that you talks about words that I said eleven years ago. I think it's disgraceful and I think she should be ashamed of yourself if you wanted to do it. Run down the road before we get our guest morning on DeVon WL Tommy you heard take on a debate new reasoning one. Right. Yeah. Well all I'm out. It all out. Hello well. I. It well. That no god. But. I. Lot to pay all we call on. That is a little bit actually it. No doubt that. Call this it and it is. That we got. Yeah. I wore bullet be able. Back. Back. Have a bad. About articulates. It well. What you want about Tibet where it accepts its closest home. We will have all now. Given orders. Would you ever just to curry favor with a shock jock in his the most disturbing thing to me all week yet. See Howard Stern's shtick is he gets celebrity's on the talk about their personal lives and any turns a dirty. And if they don't play along if they don't come on any goes after him and his minions go after them in their life as miserable. So when Donald Trump talks about his wife is a daughter being a piece of me. And that her rest a real. That to me is the most offensive thing in the world and the only reason I bring that up. Ron is that does that mean that you're so. Anxious to be accepted you're so afraid that you won't be that to getting kids Howard Sterns body and let him talk now every once you about your daughter. Or that you're gonna pretend to be a big shot when you're 59 team and you've never done these things is to try to impress somebody from the inside edition. It it's about security with me and that's the thing that worries me about him. Thing. They were aware that trial. Are tolerant you are out. The media out thank the media we will seek out the demand out there. I went back to. You are ashamed about dead is not about Howard Stern but he's so funny when he dozens. Stupid body parts stuff that's the least of what he Hindus on anoint does I guess this gets up and tell me quickly what else. Paula but all Hubble if mobile. Poppy shot you sit out a whole lot web. Albeit vehicles what he believes that maybe that. It's not outdated air it out by about it I'll lie. Watergate reached now about it I'll lie in and out lie. I want to be. Out about the video so much about Asia. The bell it habit. You do run banked in a Texans in and says his letter man on earth has made remarks like that only difference is no audio. And really can't disagree with that I don't think your parish priest or our ministry did that but. The of the daughter part. Bugs me because I think we've all said things were we just think we're going on comedy riffs and we try to get more and more outrageous with each other in. Like Roger says that had been on tape we'd be in deep trouble already jaguar opinion bowl. You can log on to it done WL dot com and cast your vote two thirds think. That Donald Trump won the debate 13 given to Hillary Karen good rusty professor political science dean. College of arts and sciences Winthrop University. Played on good morning. I'm doing well good morning to you. Thank you I was mentioning earlier that when the debate came on I had to go take a doctor prescribed anti anxiety building hill because it was just it was so intense it was like. Some kind of bad family singer something I don't know house to describe it give me your take on debate and was there a winner or loser. Well I actually think it was more of a dropped. I don't give Donald Trump credit he did much better in this format than he did in the first debate and it. And that's all the more remarkable given the rather horrendous week. We are. Yeah I did better in the second debate that he did in the first. I've made it clear he'd prepared. Yeah and LA is you know the college for. Professor you know I just keep thinking well you know preparing for the test does make a difference race he had better answers. Didn't he did take a lot of Hillary Clinton's base. He. Kept interruptions to a minimum and it's hard to overstate how annoying that is to women and women voters it's good way to alienate them. He's been a little bit. The better prepared now that it you know he was pushed on Matt and frankly he should just come out forcefully and said what I did and when I said was crying and you know put it to bed. Frankly the argument about locker room time. And the argument like everybody does it in eleven years ago really felt. Work they don't really to sell me. Because what he doesn't Benny turned around and he brings that way Hillary Clinton minus senator Don Webb Bill Clinton has centered on 25 years ago. So if his words and actions of eleven years ago it shouldn't matter than I would the Clinton's words and actions of 25 or thirty years ago matter. I mean there's a logical disconnect there he got closer to pocket the policy but he laughed at when he threw my hands under the bus. I'm that before and I'll say it again. Donald Trump is not a conventional candidates but at no point has he been president. Candidate ever done anything like that was around me. I think the narrative was at least the Democrats are trying to push and certainly. A lot of the mainstream media was over the weekend before the debate was that he's done he's finished a better concentrate. You know talking about it and has to be GOP. A conference call a day among GOP leaders talking about dropping him from the ticket which I don't think it's gonna happen and I don't. Or replacing him with somebody in can't happen. But it seemed as though they there worlds you know just moving on saying the presidential race had been decided in that. They should concentrate on my house and the senate but after last night's performance. Is Donald Trump back in a barely. At eight but that's hard to say I don't think that in terms of they're republic and parties to the strategy that they're gonna end up focusing on down ballot races. These you know these revelations let you know first the taxes and then now that's terrific video followed by. The other audio from Howard stern show. Isn't that damaging. That I don't know that there's a way to recover especially since you know the Christian conservatives. Are now beginning to bail crime. I'm tramp and they were only reluctantly and its coalition anyway. The opinion that I think it's pretty clear that Donald Trump does not listen to advice he doesn't understand the difference between appealing to his base. And appealing to a blotter electorate. He has not been able to make the adjustment from campaigning for the for the high in the primary season which he did extraordinarily well. To campaigning in the general election that those are different audiences and that they they require. But as the second went requires more temperate mass. Well what would Donald Trump has to do. Right now to. Make himself. Serious contender or is there anything in your opinion and do and what would Hillary have to do. To maintain whatever lead she hands. Wow that's an excellent question now first I think he would need to release his taxes and come pick a good candidate. Well do opposition research on themselves or have their campaigns he's at. And that come up with a strategy of how to deal with and and they are really really confident ones. Well put that in a negative information out themselves early. So that they can then message and it and it and have outlined to deal with it and then get it through the news cycle. It is now. So late that it. It's frankly child options are few he can try and do that but it is still going to hide him well into November because we're only you know a month away. And moreover the Republican Party probably is not going to drop trumped up because they don't want to vote because they can't. Great parity and internal party rules that really talk about what a vacancy appears like somebody diet are voluntarily remove themselves from the ticket. But when you look at X 61. States including the District of Columbia. Election won't the ballot access rules. Can't take trump off his name will be on the path clip at this late date. And and then it it will vary from state to state about. How they would handle the votes that have been already cast in he can't just say OK to vote for trumpet means pants or somebody else that they were put on. Because that would add in the case for the people who already cast their ballots there's a lot of absentee votes that are parity and in many states early voting has started. Appreciate your time thank you dot aren't. Doctor caring to drug ski professor of political science dean of the college of arts and sciences at Winthrop University there was some disagreement last night on the stage between Donald Trump and his vice presidential candidate. Yeah American strength and better if Russia continues to be involved in airstrikes along with the Syrian government forces have beside. The United States of America should be prepared to use military force to strike the military targets of the Asad regime can. He and I haven't spoken and I disagree. I disagree disagree with your credit to knock out nicest. He and I haven't smoked chemicals. I don't know what. I don't it is you know they some both album. Made me go after the anxiety. Out there and there is a new line and there are some people texting and and I understand your passion I did that but if you hear. Any thing about. Candidate that you just. Passionately support the new presume that so money is for the other and and that's not the case now I will say this. And in terms of men playing golf men do and locker room stuff whatever you wanna call it that's outrageous you know or Tommy. It's outrageous. Knobs we'll know it is I mean I've been involved where drain and a Jumbo professional people judges and lawyers and doctors yet. Where's the you know alcohol flows a little bit and then we all revert to fourteen year old boy isn't saying things. That we don't really feel when we would never act on. You understand and I'm certainly yeah I think it's just part of being a man and that's why men for the most part are still it. And certainly including myself at the top of that list and if you're being recorded without your knowledge and yeah are you could be alone tackle I think in a position once you have a microphone on you have to presume Mark Harris. This somebody's. Recording you're. This was locker room talk. I'm not proud of it I apologize to my family I apologize to the American people certainly am not proud of it but this is locker room talk. Donald Trump obviously talking about is the comments of just became. Well known on Friday and then carried through the weekend and ends of the debate last night when they will say is while I did earlier say that. You know guys when they're together even if their 5954. A 50451. Hand you ten. In donate each other on especially if I don't think Donald Trump was drinking at this point there's a couple of who drinks involved but it will say this of every conversation however crude they may have been I've had. I've never it was a muddy they were always passive. It was never anything about it is so many let me do that are grabbing you know and all of that stuff none of that ever went on it was more. In terms of a woman and in her beauty its that are a couple of text him in the air ones in his. Tommy you may feel like the role locker room talk to some men don't really mean and then won't act on the one in four women are victims of sexual assault in this country to this day. So apparently some men are acting on it. It is a contributor to the rape culture that we live in I'm sorry you feel the need to downplay them a downplaying any thing I'm telling you what happened. To me and at one enforcing a little high but. Take you to word just in north short a morning urine double WL. They won't them. Now. Comment on. Ever craft in the follow absolutely you know don't let you know. Of on the ball and detergent if I have to people throughout the state of churches and that's what the statement that simply couldn't hurt troop. And around ordering online play people. Ought. And it's simply the abortion issue corrections in a that huge. Corrections and a well I had an Israeli and all that that one issue where trump state you know he's pro life and religion obviously. Pro. Was in a wonder that question was asked the very end of view if you've suffered all the way through it. Among about Supreme Court in and the one thing I did like at that point was at least the frankness of the two candidates where Hillary's that luck. Yeah I believe I'm pro choice and that's a candidate number of point oh also she believes in reasonable. Common sense she calls a gun control laws and I'm paraphrasing here where I'm Donald Trump is the opposite and at least they made it clear. And I just think you know. I think character people. We know what they think character wise about either candidate at this point. So I think you better look at the things that bulls seriously affect the nation and make your choice that way. How are. Not believe that you know abortion search patient. You know millions of page murder. In at the Pentagon that they got you know from a standpoint. But anyway in addition you know the common on the comparable. You know yet you know that's you know he has a lot that's idiotic. Own mistakes you know like allergy free diet and everything she does. You know it except apologizes you know chick and give it. And you get it and yet that. Do you think and it sounds like abortions. Topic it is very near and dear to union ardent legality.
