Now Tom why I don't mean our man. On Tommy Tucker on one on you well meaning a man and dot com wrong. What's in the news. Allies as election debate last night Dan is couldn't get to sleep and it was up to about 1230 reading your body's comments on Twitter and in the stories and it's called show prep and notes and a two latest. This you and your eyes on his free thirdly what are you like your Irish hunt where you walked in the doors flew in literally walked into the dual gas. You know what I tweeted this last night the phones are open. Does your own spin room. Call me tell me whatever you wanna say about the election whatever you wanna say about the debate because. And I think the big thing they come out of the debate last night what I mean a woman he says right in the middle of some calls it. My own opinion. I think Hillary Clinton. You know yeah during a prize fight you will be. While that was the flurry that really took him down ourself who won and secondly. When Hillary Clinton started listing everything that he said was read. A borrowed. And I am not a Hillary fan believe me but when he talked about low. Republican primary was raid another one was rigged and she even went down to the Emmys that the reason the apprentice he said didn't win and an Emmy was because the Emmys rigged yeah she got little -- pretty good jab bananas as a flurry I think his morning gambling as a flurry coming no Atlanta downed jet to get the right. Dana that the left in the open microphone on the upper cut and then before you know it you know he's seen stars. Scientists now any other thing the big news I think out of that debate is. And a lot of Republicans have not taken kindly to this. Is Donald Trump saying that he will he'll keep us in suspense and he'll let us know vote. Accepting the results of the election. That was the but the big headline it seems that most of the news agencies went after. I did that was that big of a deal now. I think it is kind of because and we'll talk to hedge your vernacular talk deal about that because. Again I think one of America's private finest hours was when no tanks were in the streets and we didn't know who won the election until Supreme Court decided. In early December and even then a lot of people were not happy now what happens so we bend air right on the edge so but if that would happen if you were to replace Al Gore with Donald Trump I don't know. I don't know what the response would be conversely as we're talking about yes there Ole Ole dummy say this. That I want to get some free up done yesterday as the jets and you know some minor knee problems as an a couple of just couple torn meniscus and left all of us. And doctor fittings to take care of that but it meant to Jerry. Nurse Lisa who want to say hi big fans of yours. Well thank them for listening at Sarah senator week and I don't that's name please not. At dead of the pets around it and dog food Ayman Al. And Brenda and these people just recognized in the voice of listen all its nominees and to make sure to tell you fellows on don't know when and thank them for listening. But the phone lines are open T 601878. The last debate has been held we now go from rapidly rolling downhill if you wanna say that toward the election on Tuesday November 8 she. I had no idea either Russia and China currently I. I am not and I know I'm happy I am quote Hillary you haven't no no I did yeah and Intel dude out and Clark got married I don't like it. An agency he's like yeah. Hey. Why not right I mean it is talking I'll reach other. Anti semites waited guessing and follow me yet he Tucker a double WL. The and I debated debate around tweeted wait to debate was tonight and then at the same time simultaneously entered this is it that seriously did trump just say such a nasty woman and he did. The hedge your opening joins us right now aghast you know political science professor from my home Monday morning it. We're all I'm Liane you know. The relative question these personnel and with clear and look I did some you know research. All over yesterday in the last three legs talk to I don't know sometimes who I am and just ask about it bodies sickened that up with a they can't believe it is the only do we really have. To choose from and isn't the C over the next four years ago what was a big thing jump doubted you Ed from the debate last. Well I think the big thing that attempt I mean for a lot of people was but the fact that Donald Trump home basically said. He may not respect the will of the people. Come November. When they go to the polls are both oppressive. That didn't sit well with and I'll focus groups either independents Republicans who were watching you know it wasn't gonna sit well with Democrats in terms of those. Little dials that day that they turn is there a group of people a demographic. Among voters that will be particularly offended by the answer is this an equal opportunity offender and why and who would it be so offensive to people. Well because it's it's basically attacking the integrity of the electoral process to democratic process that. We have to remember that democracy exists in the hearts and minds of people not just about. In a legislative processes and it's not just by institutions. And if people don't have faith in the system that democracy and so that's what's really dangerous about the. One of those the more effective. Didn't I guess comebacks in terms of opposition research preparation whatever you wanna call it was when Hillary Clinton then and at and a year. You can't take sides in gain entry yet your own opinions but. I can and I'm not a Hillary fan but I item I thought when she mentioned everything that he. Railed against that was rigged even going to the apprentice in the enemy's. I think that kind of may be resonated with the American people is there because I don't think America like sore losers doing. Narrative. You know. We're taught that children that you know sporting event you basically. Shake hands on October you know you're should be. Greg champion and a good loser and and and you move and so that's something we. Are something that you just simply missing in the election. So it's it was their wireless and other in Chris Wallace does I tweeted today again and I would you know any people follow me and that's going keep mentioning this split. I think that the real winner was Chris Wallace. As a job well done your dad's in the heavens newsrooms and that's my boy I thought he did the best job just about. Of any debate even in the primary and the yen primaries and I've seen your thoughts. And yet he kept the focus to try to keep the focus on the issues and it probably problem more policy oriented they. Victory. And in terms of who won a lot and obviously potential supporters go man. You deploy. Seeing so far was that in that in principle which showed. That Hillary Clinton was the winner. Of course you know there are a number of polls out there so she would. Bowie had two weeks. Five days I think left until election. Dumb is it would it'd be much better for anybody to do is say. Or at least in terms of of moving on for somebody to win in a landslide. Either one. I think that it's gonna take it to settle any debate them and whether there is this notebook product. I mean the beer honest when you look at the numbers but it's going to be Hillary Clinton wins Hillary Clinton and little. And is there anything that Donald Trump in your opinion can do to change that Eric. Any candidate has ever done in history to reverse these kind of numbers. The candidate has come back. That's far down the game. Belgium's have a lot of opportunities to sit. It's changed the dynamic where it seems to be unable just to expand you know there. You know we are or where it was weight from the pivot or you know to act more statesman like to reach out it'll be on base and am in. You know you win elections by addition by subtraction and at that point I don't think there is can he can have anymore. Didn't. It seems like. Last night a reminded me a year to remember a come from an extremely dysfunctional family situation. But it seemed like where it's like OK we get everybody as the holidays are nine and in any in an old stuff that comes up or anything everybody is going to be nicer tank. And that's what it seem like is there. But he started for about a half an hour right her body was nice and then. Before you know when he got back to the same old name column in the same old arguments in this and and the Ed thank you so much free time I appreciate you know early I appreciate everything you do from my alma mater UN no and I hope to amateurs men table talking and soon. Thank you stretcher and make you know political scientist phone lines are open. And Nabil until about 2:10 o'clock or so and is yours been rooming Tommy whatever you want about the debate would lead you learn what it. What did you not learn hug your candidate do who won. And up are ready January opinion poll is asking you will you accept the results of the presidential election interesting note it was on this date forty years ago that the will industry and ferry sunk and those of us that are. Old enough to remember that the ferry was crossing from ruling did downstream and it was hit I think the ship as the frost. And the captain was found to have been intoxicated the timer of liquor in his system at least. And he was ultimately ruled that fall for the accident because he tried to almost racy ship. Across a river and Annie didn't win so a lot of families so affected by the at a Lloyd Nolan good morning and other WLU Dylan. I'm all right what's up. And say. Oh the bay. They're ridiculous. Don't want to talk about Albert on that's about Donald Trump or you know alleged about Hillary Clinton led. What about the fact she enjoyed all of this union of war. Black. Should it actually here on the director. Of Wal-Mart a company that will quell the storm portal out to unionize. She with the goal early in the harder. And a grandfather a modern conservatism. She supported him her or campaign. And a young woman. Okay. We are talking about your note that we talk about culture now let me say that I can't support Donald Cha. Because of who you market or the Supreme Court. However I don't think that there have been spared them at all. And we're not looking at things. So I draw this altogether forming so I can get to a get to your point here for we go to news. You Bojan imminence Eric and CNN's. What's it. We all go ahead Lloyd so what altogether you're trying to say what do viewed summon up at one dozens. Or can talk the American public. What will offer. We don't think. We just. I mean think about Hillary Clinton should she would go out to be tarred. Oh that Robert gave them that terror hundred million dollar loan and he'd charge isn't it ten billion dollar. This is the character we want to run the United States. See here's the deal I got a good news Laguna I don't know who you're for I don't understand who went in my. I thank you a lot of money on he used cancer. Your on this main things I had three hours of sleep and he's just lying awake with my eyes wide open after the date if there I'm sure a lot of people word text comes in. If Hillary Rodham Clinton I presume that's what majors he stands for gets elected. There will be no 22 when he election America will be done. Done. You really think it's a deck of orca comment on and we and that Yuban amassed in the audience he really think it's true. That no matter who wins because they heard the same thing about Barack Obama and we're still here yeah so you tell me at 260187. In and it takes continues on. Not offended at all but how do you think Barack Obama got reelected if you don't think that voter fraud happens then you are an idiot. Sorry for the name calling but that word as the nicest thing I can say. Voter fraud happens. I think it does and in Evans on both sides of it's enough to change a presidential election I don't know. Yeah that's the thing if there is fraud. And there may very well be and you know of the visit just a little bit as admiral gonna you know. And I are you defining fraud I think one of the most eye opening things. For me when I get this job DeVon have you elements aren't learning the talk thing after Katrina and I got traded from the music station. Was that aid politicians are always running. Right unless it's like President Obama and an even nannies campaigning for the Democrats. And now allergy to a president not specifically Obama. And the other thing was it's all about denounced the votes or if you give people of fried chicken dinner from pop eyes or what have you hair. And get my bus ride to the polls are there otherwise wouldn't have been and tellem who to vote for up. Is that voter fraud. No because I know that happens. When he notes is 60187 in what did you think about the debate in do you think there is any way. That. We will not be here in 2:1 need to morning. As a Republican has stood a lot of things that a lot of bad presidents do you think really that's true. Law enforcement officers would be going scoreless ball palm dot com business to business rounding up people who are undocumented. And we would then have to put them on trains and buses to get them out of our country. Hillary Clinton's comments about Donald Trump's immigration plan. Attacks comes in and says I hate to take the wind out of your sails and know what sales metaphorically this techsters speaking of but voter fraud as a relevant the electoral voters will votes will determine the next president. We essence anchored but who do you think it is that he lacks the elect doors and that would be on us. In the polling place see that's a wayward so thanks for the attempt at clarification. And in terms of truth what is true what is not. I see onto woody here bearing arms a web site that I don't know much about the headline busted political fact gets caught lying again. About Hillary Clinton's gun control record. And there are varied and sundry people who say that the owner and editor of a little effect is anti Republican. And that's why when people say we gotta check it's actually get a check your facts. I don't know I wasn't there and it's hard to determine what exactly was true Walter and me and to build the morning and double WL. Oh yeah a couple of Yasser. One yes there are people out there election. Ordered the only a truck there's. No right. To think about spirit and I. Well so we'll wait hang on Al Gore actually conceded that night and then. It is a fascinating story in Newsweek Indian signed an archive anywhere above that the time that he was riding. From the hotel to the gathering area where he was gonna make his concession speech where they turn the car around. And they thought it was so close season and an unknown male dominant don't do this not that I I think it concessions legally binding or anything but. He withdrew it that just a little background on that proceed Walter please. If you think beer and elections rate in people actually go other people. But I think yet but very mentally and really they're that much on the back. Look at the media. Your your radio station has played fourth page of three traits and sepia. Padilla all square and. Struck out now. I guess yeah yeah we've plated trump liked it we not adequately so far we've later trump might. And once when we played one drop in one wins so what what do we do wrong near Walter. I meant he knew what was the job. Acutely as they drink it Cha. You heard one bite and CBS Hillary Clinton I don't know cheered on a news. But you heard from us you heard one Hillary Clinton by talking about his can his immigration campaign. And Donald Trump your one by talking about his. His email Max and so forth now IKEA I can't continually recap every couple of minutes as people get in the car I think castle bit of imagination. Well that's what Buckner like yes I guess online and Walter in and underdog you return. And then another thing about Electoral College yeah there's nothing binding elect a college Broder. The vote at the way to people in them up to its what you would. Say try. For Hillary they can go in would be the first. What may end things this election cycle are going to be so different when it comes to. Personal media bias secondly Hillary Clinton bites from now until. The moon I can't make anybody vote for anybody you listen you make your own mind up people are too dumb. Tinted do their due diligence scrum they get what they deserve right to say tonight to be so blunt. People blaming the media is like you don't buy every product you hear about if you did you and have any money left. EPO yes Liu and one thing just. Just with the government that man if you watch war world would be guys and so on most things campuses. College campuses in. Some of the dances these people give book. Like voted the American like revolutionary. War China. These are college students and they have a clue some senators. A whining you know these people. Maybe we need to change our education system they put civics in the U historians like that. I sold in high school curriculum but I guess in college people can. Study whatever they want DD is so we view of a trump voter. Hillary know what I was out here Rick trump but when he commented. Be prepared would be in yeah. It. Keep the peace of whatever he. Yeah and thank you Walter appreciated heads it'll defense when peoples are talking about the media it's like being on languages in messenger years. And you know they do you have did different. Does lands on things and that's line you need to watch a couple of different sources and and try to average amount areas of WL.
