Thank you David 910 and as weak and this last our of the show this morning we want you to say something nineties. About the other party. Our talent really that's at is not possible I don't know say something nice that places the nice as I've it's a fork. Is. Someone said. You mentioned earlier about being a fly on the wall now yeah okay they said. The nicest thing I can say is I would not be a fly on the wall. At Hillary's files because like accidentally might see you phenomenon of the Shia force holes oh. I won't do that shall like in a boy that and that's supposed to be knighted yeah. Sure if it's off so well Wilson and I'm going to be here are some movies I'll write it down for a ride or cared right. So does a politician's private life matter to you. No Bill Clinton doubles when knowledgeable fours elected president it's actually a law possible people that he was a good president. Well Bill Clinton to do the job via the Donald Trump do the same now that the media was different than them than me. And well yea your right and you weren't you earlier mentioned you know gone way doctor. JFK and before that in and in in a way the media protected residence they knew darn well. You know bouts taken drugs because of pain and and womanizing. And and it wasn't splashed out to you never heard about it. Not and and Clinton had a reputation before while he was running for publisher but they kept in oh. Now I I think with the media today I would have to mantra we probably have more holding for seven. Media operations now than we did win what when Clinton was running an archer. And now both social media made that gets out and you can say anything you will often. About anybody. Well and doesn't this coming out of to a theory that a lot of people have that you know who that wants this job right I don't care how much power of the money's not great and and now everything. Will be revealed and as as you go on even even for all the player council. All the tools like from maybe you know any anything you've ever done is going to be oath. Yeah. And you stand up to the scrutiny of we computers will be hopefully everything is exactly what you have to go to the mountains and find on the Monica. Thank you Dave all right let's go to Derrick in Algiers they're cut does a politician's private lives matter to you or should it matter to anyone. I believe the problem like ship matter. Depends on the circumstances by which they've done something. Okay but as we just finished talking. Clinton. Pedal a reputation of really be in a womanizer. He got elected he got elected twice and even today when you ask people about Bill Clinton most of them site. That they I think he made a good present I've heard people say they wish bill running instantly Hillary than vote for him so what does not site. I think that we decide about but I also believe common independently you know and political pressure I do what when it comes to Vienna womanizer you know. Is he what he really before. The betterment of women. I don't think so I think he would use his political clout in order to. Back charcoal whatever support he made same public. For a woman and that's certainly not too. Isn't Donald Trump on that same situation though that the the but the womanizing. Reputation that he has. DP GA and I believe it is. Jim and Bill Clinton both share the same shirt same beta circus so to speak. But does it put a stop you for voting for president. Okay so like a lot of people been telling me we're not voting for a poll or voting for president. That's correct you have to look at what their individual brings all world. When it comes severe external stereo and now it's in an airplane just one thing I don't like about Donald Trump. It's a fact that he is technically. Funny digital campaign but he's also using his own company of private planes supply this battle on his staff complete technical tails whenever eagle place. So in theory. He's funny you know campaign but also paint himself on the back in because he's using his own property any company assets. All right Derek now say something nice about Hillary or the Democrats. Something nice something sweet. Pocket saw like how Democrats. They progress they liked in the campaign to date between social media life has changed times which change and I like how Democrats try to. He called it understand people that eventually comes to game manager knows type of things. How wherever Hillary as a huge issue when it comes to working across party lines in just she lied. Lindsay is said something nice now you. That is centralized. I mean I would ask you a lot I agreed to try to do the woman artist or actor you know. All right Derek date that thank you so much let's go to. In Slidell Jay thanks for calling WW well Jay first evolved should a politician's private life matter at all. So that they in as being there. And consider where relationships. With women in that's between you would. And pain in your. And yet they have. Look like with. Allegations of social saw in the weight the they do that but it's incredible records then. Where is that the mindset of somebody. That would force themselves somewhat. Someone. With a certain. Should should be in. The they just being. JD the only the only point I'm trying to make here I'm I'm I'm not trying to defend either side of tea. When you look at Bill Clinton and we know all those things about him. Yet when you ask most people was Bill Clinton a good president most people say yes in fact. I'm really surprised if I had been running the truck campaign during the debate out of bed Donald Trump asked Hillary Clinton. Was your husband a good president did he do great things for the country and you'd have to say yes yes yes that he could fall Wednesday. So this bite the fact that he had all these allegations of all these women did not stop him from being a good. And the oh. To be as. Well in the country. And install an investigation with them. You know. I urge you between the public Ortiz. But when it was because. That would. She is. What. Happens to us. About the trees. You go to. Bill Clinton's impeachment over the an alleged. And so you actually. And it's like in the past in the country but it is way Bob. Well it's an open book and yet to show that sixty to 65%. All the public. All we're gonna just like either in. It's the people who understood. That. It works. Most opportune the book fortunate. Like Jerry just. Like well Ian and implode here so that you and me. Of doing which he's still. It when you get to the hot pursuit. All popular vote now then you why did. But which ones that would aid to state that's what what what what it used to ports. Are you that you see. You. On stage at least urgent to you know but that you know major. RJ got to take a break say something nice. Bought the Democrats now. And you use. Your. One in. The cage. She should have you. With. He or she. And it by the. All right thank you so much okay I would only take a break and we're going to come back.

A watch on the land. Let's go to duke is that they got it right. Acquitted them let's go to let's go to Mike Mike how warrior this morning. Craig Moore under. Wealthy out. It it outlawed is that you know there are now dominant and are you know district trump or Hillary picked up by artillery. There are certain every administration except ordered off the exit he wrote a book call final hour you at all but he. He served declared no well which serve. But he always took public opt to.

I'm not so happy to record you know you may disagree with the law the law you're going to take the oak brook federal. Government property you know and I think I think they're. I think the court should the jury there were well baker a political decision rather than a solution based on all law. I just like held down with a couple cowboys trying to hold onto their land near. Yeah yeah you know united outpost not all sales for the epic darker land that they hear you know. Boca. You out there who do that so well though are. Of all I'm glad that it got solved a non violently that's got to be that was the main thing I was pulling for our. All right Mike. Thank you so much. All right Bible four to six year old needs to ebony and we won't come in this half hour as we go win two but think tank at 10 o'clock with a Don Dubuque if you are Republican. A watchers say something nice about the Democrats view Democrat watchers say something nice. About the Republicans. And dogs. I. Politicians. I've life. Really mattered you know that if you or. Just. Immoral. And your private life can you still be. A good leader and I'm not in anyway. I don't backed the type of lifestyle but Clinton had huddled back at my watch lifestyle. That that that trump had but when you ask people about Bill Clinton including me let's take you really good president well Lee was the womanizer too. It's 930 it's news time on WW well. And as we continue to ask a nice comments about the other party that you don't believe in yeah how you doing on not. Well I did do a couple examples you are right are sweeter sugar got an ice all men are ya Tony. Hillary's hair styles much better when she was First Lady. And that's supposed to be a good time REI denies using it to about trump he's responsible for making Saturday night. Live footage and that's good that's yeah. Something nice to say about Hillary her she always looks professional and chances leaving no room for Trump's bulb to remarks that you were readdress. Do you realize if Hillary flip thwart it show that one over royalties and rushed the amount of publicity she would again. Everybody would be viewed that big big time that looks like. That's about it and not it's it is it is it's hard to block any recognize this if both of them have drowned about one more. Good thing about Hillary he's okay should thank lawyers when she's a great Haider. Chic and hide Easter eggs like she does as it's not the way a are right that's nice down dozens I was just so all right Betty. I think I'll get back to the phones and search for more serious you're gonna get our library let's go to Jay in Slidell. Whether you like trump but say something nice. Among the other side. I have to say that he'd Democrats announcement that you know rank and file Democrats are saying. It's admirable. Their commitment to. Social justice to turn. Well now of course so is people have their own perspective sometimes that I think. You know that that these chances and passionate about it and. All right I can set the compliment. The number one how much does a politician's private life really matter to you when you're voting for president. I think it's gonna player rule because I think if you see. How they act. When there are just completely candid in this year's special interest so. I think sometimes that give you an insight into how they're going to construct situations. As commander in chief. Like. I think in me and if a person in. Guilt like. They they have a trust in that they'll do right wing in their position I think. The private stuff as well. Turn the ball. Yeah and I am I am not have been accused of a couple of like most of them that I am. I'm trying to help trump I'm not trying to help anyone this is something that I just came to at as an observation. Bill Clinton. Was a known womanizer when it was running for the presidency but of course the media didn't didn't reveal a lot of bad. And even now a few as people with everything Clinton win to. And in in getting in it impeached and and and having having sex in the Oval Office I mean that's those things are totally immoral. But people will still say. Bill Clinton was a good president I had people. Who offer truck right now who said the Bill Clinton was running instead of Hillary. I would vote for Bill Clinton so. What we can go back and say Clinton was a good president how ever but when it comes to trump. This one thing that Clinton winnable lot of things but this particular thing but there waving against its character. And so it it does seem to me that with a lot of people the private life doesn't really matter that much. I think the interesting thing to. The private matters even for you and Bill Clinton. Interfere remember when he launched the missile strikes. There was no a lot of references to the way the dog say and they. Distract attention from those private thing. And I think that's a little bit disconcerting to the American people at whole picture is. We want to have the confidence that if our commander in chief sent our troops and arms way. Or launches the strike against another country for whatever reason. We wanna believe deep down on the matter which party is in power that. They're doing it because it's the right in the dew and some and that truly is our national interest and not try and distract from personal questions he. Do you agree with the comment that Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas said that Washington is broken that that we can no longer have civil conversations. Or that politicians can't. I think I think it had to think I agree with him but I think it I think it's more of the same. Of the fact that we have moved. Both parties are moved so well into the right. And I think there's less common ground you which you have that you have differences of opinion. They're so diapers. That trying to find common ground to reach compromise which as. Kyra the hallmark of all of our of over and over democratic system. That's the heart and I think that has happened. What you're seeing here is that because there's less common ground. The vitriol has increased and the fact that it's become pretty good actually the election is a kind of a winner take calls. You know approached that's why it's there you know civil discourse is going out and. And what you mentioned compromised do you think it's easier. For two politicians the compromised or husband life. And what that we'll take a breath. All right. There we were gonna take a break and when we come back I'm good at talking to my buddy Joseph in Chicago. About what's going on in the city of Chicago and the cubs and Jerry or give to your phone call to. Bob Mitchell WW. Say something nice. Above the person of the parties. That. You wore not a member understand okay hear something good about Hillary. I'm reading text measures something good about nearly wasn't easy she's very good at evading questions and prosecution. Hillary didn't double park or brutal last time she isn't on all these nice things are right one of the things that's of course going on. If if you or Chicago pub club. While few pubs and that's fun if you're Chicago Cubs fan. Is it is the World Series and I got a buddy Jobe from Chicago on on the Coleman. That Joseph did the cubbies fans even dream about the World Series this year. Well let me say a couple of things first of all you are Chicago crowd and our band as well. And demand. I daydream about it they dream about 365. Their entire life. And to seal the deal line from Jack. And the beat you'll. Go to YouTube and type it and go go cubs go light your house. And you see an addict can't stand. Currently tire electronic show with the songs go cubs go all that up with faces now and every. Compound near the city and haven't. How hard would be to get a couple of tickets. Well. Last I heard last night and you're only going for 19100 dollars in the world. While. Yeah and I understand that even the bars in the pubs or have been specialist and charging people to reserve tables. That according to what I heard all of the bars surrounding Wrigley Field. Are charging a 250 dollar cover charge just to walk in the bill. People over the weekend. I read somewhere that that the 250. But a lot of times does not even include a table and that there are some bars yurt they're charging you 500 bucks you get a table and Ambien. Right yet the duke it is just there for the privilege of walking to the so it's. It's just just amazing here even the White Sox on there mark key. Are congratulating. And rooting for the cubs know I grew up and in New Jersey and you never saw that between the Yankees and the Mets won Rudy the other one. You know there weren't you know it wasn't in the series. Now of our. Armed biz break businesses open today I mean are a lot of people to shut down debate because of the cubs. Well my that. Is having a they can't kick off party at 2 o'clock today closing at B there. And that drop of forty people and cause you're street thirties everybody has more than enough time to get what they wanna beat. And I have to imagine everybody's wearing cub shirts and hats. Both can be copied little cubbies book. Now Joseph I know for a while there and and I think they had to go to corps over. There was there was a restaurant that was or apartment that was. What right outside the wall and and we're selling seats on the roof that actually did build some bleachers. Whatever happened looked at it. So. Back in the day you know going back about twenty years. The rooftops around Wrigley Field all content you know somebody. Just to to get that after the group there and trying to erect one of those apartment to live and would like you know well winning absolutely want Google. Bowl. And I am sure it then in the late nineties what happened what corporations or rattled buildings and converted. About 1012 buildings surrounding them out he Wrigley. Into. Wrigley Field party browsers we've bleachers on top with that refreshment stand with bark inside and outside. And and the last five years since the Erica Stanley purchase the columns. They actually bought out by those buildings themselves. We get the rap. Because favored tactic 30% of the take prior to that. So about spite building your own becomes available in stone my individual corporation. I felt I thought I read somewhere that at the the Rigby field put up like some some barriers or some funds to try to block the view it's not. Up and up until last year Wrigley Field here at electronic. Board you know on the big Margaret everybody else well. 600 square monitored they put up the media right he'll block which blocks the view about that 80% to a home that the Rick legal route stops. And that the country since bought those buildings. To settle out of court with those owners and nevertheless spiel there's huge sign over there as well that they'll lock on the built. So will you be at the game or at a pub tonight. Our I will be at the game in spirit. There's the lead. A beer and eat there. All right Jill thank you so much buddy appreciate the reporting. I got that Joseph from Chicago reporting on the cubs it's 952. Time to take the not a traffic break but just how we do know day. Told us enough. Traffic no traffic while blood drives and I want to.
