Iraq's atomic talker WWL. A on my thumb on dot com. Thank you David Blake a look at at a story here that says. Not my president trump announced in protests across the United States and that. Makes me wonder if we're not look in the mirror from 2008. Wins he's not my president. And I wonder the protesters will eventually start saying they want their country back. And I'm not saying you know I mean it just seems like deja blue all over again. What an area that I gotta tell you this I ran into a friend and obviously known names here but. Who was in tears. Today. Did not go to work yesterday. She is convinced. That everything that Obama did. Is going to be out the window no more rights for gays Nomar right surgery LBJ EP TIE. Just a we're all county GT QQ are but everything has come to an end. And she I swear she is. L I L in all over there there were college professors who gave their students the day off yesterday. If they couldn't deal with the results of the election and wanting we will talk about this hour and it really do wonder. If you voted in your first election you could have been a young as ten when Barack Obama first took office writes all you know was Barack Obama is president. Then as an eighteen year old you do your due diligence and you decide Melissa's really who might want to be in the White House and you can't you vote. But it doesn't turn out that way well it doesn't mean that the the system is flawed or that you don't have a G message. Again not everybody gets a trophy and on everybody gets a winner and somebody's gonna win and somebody's gonna lose. I think of this country could just listen to what Donald Trump said after he was elected. Listen to what Hillary Clinton said yesterday yes listen to what Barack Obama played yesterday said yesterday. If you believe. In any of those people listen to what they said and do what they asked you to do you. I don't think President Obama or Hillary Clinton would be selling you into slavery. If you're LB GQ. LB GTQ I don't think it's gonna happen and but I'll tell you this that we may be an Anatoly audiences to you may view of fear of fear is irrational. But that doesn't mean that that fear is very real. As in the Casey your friend. Yeah right and. And the other thing with a mark friend is she's convinced I mean seriously can this is an intelligent person that because of what Tron said and did. That groping women is just going to be the way it is. I've heard the same thing from various people just Anna's street run wild I would calls for if that were the case you know you got a net debt and the blood you gotta have serious crackdown. Law enforcement on that in some very stiff sentences and I guarantee that'll take that Graham about a people very quickly real quick. Thank you David I would like to know what you all think it's music so money sending and I want to be clear about it is. In no way am I making fun of your fears or semis saying that you're not entitled to them. I can't see the future maybe you should be afraid I don't think he's good. I think it's irrational but that doesn't mean that European that you feel isn't real. I'd like to hear from the NT six O 1870 if you are afraid. It like David Blake is set or you have a young person in your life that voted for the first time inward will and and it had with my daughter was devastated because. It's trump did Hillary Clinton didn't win and it's one that's that's politics as a as a way it is somebody when some on it loses. Sometimes we all lose Dennis and his Solomon good morning or Devin WL. Demonic. Welcome. Experts on news from the Nazis capital world. And there's a lot out there. Oh. Yeah I think most well watered and you bolt out. It is an Iranian right now look at it where it bit me. Last Thursday that it that it removed today bitch you would you put the yen. Yet again with the at Utica it almost went from Monday but he needs you think they use sharpton's she gave. Yeah it was. Hey let's get this. Saturday's Iowa now I'll outlook and pretty girl named Tom where someone or something so great and called an inward. I don't know his name was but yes exactly yet and that and that's inexcusable it's unforgivable the people would do that to go to jail. Right now I have a grandson that tents right in Baton Rouge. You've gone to on the street and bought the Tibet ruse. And through black guys put a gun in the back which it and the bandit itself well. Now my son in law into the same thing gonna get a gun to block grants that. London and get those two QQ. I totally agree with a lot lets it S. I rate to guide not. But I will say this. Out of superstition. They are setting in my opinion they are setting those kids up to get killed. Exactly and that he would back to town sphere. About elected president. He much and remember on the black campus he must remember America you mustn't remember that to light who. Call it easy at all. Reverend Wright Reverend Wright was marine and today is the birth in the marine. Yet again you know I am indeed tickets to the problem with this country is not like you sit nobody. Keep it that much in industry. Will promise free education. In the sand as well Hillary got elected. They know that that that is topic a change in America Asia have a change of president. When I tell you this Dennis and that's why answer bill Cassidy that's why. Brilliant producer Jordan looked it up. Any goes to the budget they could get a budget passed. They did in 22 and they did into when he fifteen. From that time it has been for the largest I would think bludgeoning operation and in the world. It has been a series of continuing resolutions it's like if you had a business okay well. That's been figured out for six months and we'll go from there and then they couldn't even agree. One sequester kicked in remember they said we can no budget to sequester cuts kick in and they did a lot of people say that made the military weaker. So to think that all of a sudden. There's going to be this unified effort to attack one group of people or the other unchecked. I don't I don't I don't buy. Any stance. It Democrats and Republicans that treatment like tennis ball it just ball was so long that go to the other beast two groups. Need to understand that they have to make rules that govern their entire United States and make that building at one. I agreed to end. The app but it. It's it's it's it's in Paris in the watch without you on television. Yet here again and on the blamed in news you know on the back out right you've skipped it gate it was cameras off to a mall just they've been able. But. In we'd have a discussion about that this hour to I think days and I think it's newsworthy in America American public needs and now. Especially when vandalism becomes a part of that they had sprayed hated. Some miscreants did as part of protests kkk. On down your hall the newly refurbished you know your whole from the outside and and foundation work and now they're doing some things on the inside. But they had to clean it up before they get Tillman episode of NC IAS new long ones today. You are. Yet and I had this dark thank you Dennis somebody help watch him to have 96 coming east and hung up on most. Wondering how many stitches he seeks a 18 Sony Floyd home and go to your into the WL. Pat down. Not. Yet the minute thing that my about. Go back to the brief phone that he did negative lowered. Everybody award we all sell or. Yet gets out here right there. And this wanna hang around. This started the Jordan you know when administration started under I think it was Reagan but I might be wrong. As a way of keeping people in rural areas that did not have phone service. In touch with each other and giving them an emergency contact. That's how it started. And then under some administration added Obama and started let me just say that and then. Some howling with the aid of congress it got expanded to include. People that word. I guess elderly and you know a follow and I can't get up to protect them and now it's gotten to be. Bob. It means is thing I believe if you make below X amount and I just wanna get factual on it that's. Okay it our all their its lottery. Outlet and the alma and I get what they. Are you looked up in the shop and keep it on here. Okay that started under Reagan brought on line in congress expanded. Well I'll get better and now 10 OK now. Or longer Ronald S driver look agent last to label a major last so much about it obscuring. I didn't I didn't realize. At all the co op and that the and demonstrations. Obama would. Remember that. Com I think the people that were opposed to President Obama were not the type to take in the streets I think they were older and I think. They tucked him media and there was you come on now you know Floyd there was a lot of we got to take our country back. I'll also Marx's. Mina the Marxist socialist he's in which he probably is. Daddy's. Not from here that he's not a legitimate president so you can't say that Obama was welcomed with open arms. Well you know opt opt out I'm not saying and it thing Obama innate but really didn't know you black adult life in order you back. All the debate shouldn't get in that thing out. In the electorate. You our common and the standard and according to law independent bill on the billboard affiliation. But I would hope that the Republican. Can get. Well and just say this guy is half white too and it erotica. On main. I guess is why it was how you identify and man when he sees them save them money and get my DNA test them and Revere or reveal the results. Live on the air. Like Morrie. Keep in mind is on paternity this is DNA. Happy birthday to the United States Marine Corps I remember her on ups in the movies one to be a marine and it turned in the seventies and devastating analyst and wonderful would have been tough enough to get through Christine Gary did these marine. To get through basic training in boot camp but I know back in a day of those drill instructors from the old time resilient. They'd they'd be they'd be pretty free to put their hands onion and bunched up look that have been like what you're doing on. A Mike and Wallin saga about the election go ahead good morning under the W I'll admit and maybe fears I don't know what do you thing. More on and I'm on the target speech you know. Right to a number one. There about it but what Donald Trump. Right they have to be white race in amateur did you. Right idea and he's right people who are in our rule if you're responsible for down on you by the way that put David duke can. And it. Hang on the island. And no matter how it cracked where they hang you or don't you dance Anthony went into this Fuller and not in the mood would today. George good morning or Devin W rallied on. Bond Tommy thank should take to grow large and geology. Virtual. Particular Hersh. All the talk show host plus our. Christmas came from me early. You should try and collect it is important to you once did me electors. The commission. I just felt like. This country is rooted tree. And our culture show probably. Actually shall walk much a moment ago and said that it would blow it up and put a politician's. Politician. We're politician. And Ray Nagin. Yeah and he turned to appear at this. Anyway a light which is going to around a true that we need change. I'll have a record what you are caller. Two columns should go. Coalition and come back. And I don't agree what is. The traditional. The crime rate in metropolitan towards you won't that you brought more. In its first off just to be clear but go ahead make your point. It Cha it shall we nobody questions. And he beats ago for recreation. Not occur as a and the trial supporters. But Petraeus. I like me it's like Pia American experts and only people are gonna talk. Today it's a different issue because I think. If you give a young black man gone to defend himself and you also have a talk with him about. The police and now yet to be very careful because you thinkers of bias between. Or against black people by the bullies. Even though some offices are black and a lot of offices black I'd think. There and you kind of contradicted because I don't know that I would want him carried on you with me. I'd probably sit com or cardinals management and and back. It's fortunate you know even today in an apartment. Who march. Are terribly that this city. What issues are and what happened yesterday what age pretty well great care and school windows. But it just simply that this city. Import car change would let down orchard. I arledge we got to run to as we get an update coming up from CBS I would presume it would have to do something with the meeting between Donald Trump. And President Obama which has to be more awkward than a dog in a mailman getting stuck in an elevator. I need on I'm right you that are river river line. Maybe they'll find common ground I'm sure both will be cordial and again I really wish that. Everybody would just do it all three of them have said trump Clinton and the president after the election year ago CBS Jimmy in Metairie to morning or DeVon WL. Eight much talk about. It started. Out first the Democrat. These people look not only have themselves the wine and a lucky in the day. A comment about the election. Ballot stuff and it worked against him. And they don't. In this questions what are. Charity class her mistakes that you make that mainly aptly themselves they have to take a hard look. As themselves. The. Well today is something that does surprise I'm sorry go ahead that your number Demi Moore go ahead. Well. Another thing. It's kinda. Crappy that did Democrats are all open. You know Trout camp began it wouldn't want to Ian Bill Clinton did thoughtful. But you don't hear that come out in the media thing like. Let me ask you this and this I think is the point. Does any of that matter. He won the election I can remember where I was exactly in this control room when I heard the sound byte of President Obama. Telling Republican congressional leaders and 2000. Eight. Yes. In the years or 2008. Listen I won the election's over I won meaning you know I get the club I'm gonna use it. And I just think after the election is over. And one keep in mind 25 point 6% of the people voted for Clinton 25 point five. For trump 46 point 9% didn't even votes it's not like the entire country. Was clamoring for either one but it seems to me. Unless there was any. Chicanery shenanigans. Wrongdoing voter fraud. It's over when he election is over it's like you know what like it or not it is what it is and I hate the phrase it is what it is but in this case. It is what it is and I think that thank you Jim and ladies college thing that everybody needs just listen to what Donald Trump said after the election. What Hillary Clinton said yesterday and not just a concession speech but I think was her farewell politics speech and what the president says. Because they all three agreed. And if you worry fervent Hillary Clinton supporter do you really think. She would have been as gracious as she was if she thought there was a real risk. Today anybody LB GQ TE LB. Yet and don't mean just as sex Leo is messing up LG. The UT I think as it is. From real or any particular race or whatever you but he didn't say that she says he's the new president. And I is which was if you'd you would see enemy of Donald Trump Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Can all agree on one message that may be it wouldn't be bad for us is Americans. To follow that advice. And if you think I'm wrong. I'd like the Iranian T 60170. And if you are afraid. I really do want to know what it is that you're afraid of as it relates to. To Donald from being president do you think these fears and again they are real you worry you are more than entitled to have your own fear. But do you think it's really. Rational Laura and I mean to be judgmental do you really think there's any basis sport. Daniel and it won't sign urine got a W out the morning. And you know. I'll. Good morning good timing and I'd have to say happy part rate of Marine Corps my hat Wednesday. Colonel in the Marines he's retired now. And every image and woman in an ally for our country understand all. And made a sacrifice be in the Marines that is not an easy thing. Oh you think you could have been a marine. Well I it buried past and it has three daughters so. We are Guerrero has yet by. Technically I don't know may be. You ought to our mind maybe it my country. And we get my life for the current economic email. Gadget Danielle would you say about the election. Not so much to say red comedic you could be prompted could take my time. I'd kill or eight. I mean Collie took a lot of app for. Eight feel so passionate about. I am really really nervous because. Immediately. And here in this election. And I'm quite. We are. Or conservative hand down I was vary vary vary that how many of them you. Channel handle the election felt like eight cricket by strong. They. Did eat at acting and right. And you thought that he had an agreement the way you handle things Michael Graham and of course by. There are a lot of good things that he he's promoting and he wants I truly believe we need to stop and he really helped by. To try to change things. Yeah and that settlement that Hillary Clinton did that to Ali I know. I had some of the year is like art term abortion and I could not believe that was you know. Don't media attention on that. You are and I'd just yet about how life and I feel like a candidate that life. Or get into the world. As a lot about our partner and I really want.

Apparently there are one act them out of date and that we can all live in harmony and support each other and can bring people up in the country. We need that I need to encourage each other at all. Right. Thank you. Hang out precinct you action I really do were running late and I appreciate your passion and you've taken time to call. 26 so when he seven if you wanna get involved in the conversation we would love to hear from you. Om and if you're afraid. And you woke up terrified momentum and being hyped or ball iguana as it is I think people really did. Wake up terrified because Donald Trump was the president. Tell me why. I don't think anybody has anything to be afraid of because I think it's again I go back to the budget model. We've been used in continuing resolution since when he fifteen and if we can't get that done I don't see any thing you know we complain about gridlock in Washington and all of a sudden there's this big fear that. Everything no easy losses suddenly gonna go racing through president of the electron has landed. Man and a mystery and it Ellison and if there's a difference between two anyway he's making his way to the White House. To meet with President Obama. And I think you know one thing about me about these protests is that and I have often said on the years that. I think one of America's finest moments was when and we did new the president was in 2000 until I think it was December 8. One Supreme Court shut down the recount in Florida that was street automatically by state law if I remember that correctly. But there were no riots no protests no nonsense. Here the system worked. And is there reload turn out for the president to race barely over 50%. But that's when the riots happened. And I don't know if again if it's function this generation maybe not realizing. The younger voters not realizing it you not everybody gets a ribbon and not everybody wins and you go in there. And you press the button but that doesn't necessarily mean that like a vending machine Munich it would yeah. Which he ordered but it will follow all of this for you Tommy Tucker rabbinate up here and and I'll be back Monday morning. I'm gonna go visit the daughter over the weekend as men of bank and enjoy the ride and get away married. Texans and processing something that already happen in can be changed is stupid capital letters like protesting spilled glass of meld these are not protest. They are temper tantrum sorry kids the adults. Have taken back their country I don't know about that but I do wonder. You know and you don't have your voice or and so forth and like you can protest but. I don't see a lot of cheese at the end of that tunnel goes. Again it would seem like if you gonna protests 2000 would have been your time for that. And here. Get that. You mean I'd be happy and at the country isn't. Apparently the other hand in there has been vote. Anyway we'll talk more about it Garland is going to be index and the think tank he'll talk about the Supreme Court. And what it from victory in potential consequences mean to. Things like abortion rights affirmative action and gay rights laws would ruled that the media mass media social digital plea in this election. And who reach voters more effectively in they do it and finally come in and out. 28 issues that he do in the first hundred days let's not NAFTA with Garland obamacare immigration Dodd-Frank. And more and Mayo lovely day will talk again.
