Reaction to the Dylann Roof verdict.
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?
The extremes represented by The Freedom Caucus in Washington, D.C. and Take ‘Em Down NOLA may be destroying their own positions.
President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly. Does this reflect badly on the Republicans?

We were scheduled to talk about Donald Trump's kids being part of the administration and we can still have that be part of the conversation but since the jury in the Dylan roof trial. In Charleston, South Carolina is now deliberating. It has to once again see the video of his confession since they're deliberating right now. Let's you and I deliberate on the radio. Dylan roof is the guy who he's 22 now but he was 21 in June of 2015. When he went to the African American Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. And sat there while there was a Bible study. Prayer meeting going on. And at one point he decided to. Start shooting. And he killed nine people who were at that prayer meeting. Based on what you know and what you've heard and we're in the court of public opinion we're not in the courtroom.

And he also do the attorney also praised the FBI's investigation. But he argued that roof was a suicidal impressionable loner. Who never grasped the gravity of what he did. Prosecutors successfully objected several times to those arguments as he tried to make groups metal status part of it to judge said hey that's not part of this phase of the trial. Is mental status will be part of the sentencing phase. The trial. They show what I know. I would convict a guy but again this is issue and nine. Talking. Out of the courtroom.

It appears is just his daughter you vodka and her husband Jared Kushner will have offices in the White House. And I'm hearing that you've Barca will occupy an office that he's usually occupied by the First Lady and will carry out many of the duties that he First Lady would carry out. So what about Maloney. But she didn't do. I'm sure she's going to do something. But he knocked it seems like a very capable young person. Who would do it very good job of taking care of many of the things and A First Lady would take care of effect I think one of the causes that she's going to take up and this is gonna surprise a lot of people is climate change. So isn't this a problem for UN and the guy Jared Kushner hurt her her husband and don't Trump's son in law. Was apparently very instrumental in guiding him through the election. Getting him elected. So. Should he have an office in the west wing. Went areas in office and official title or not. Is there a problem with kids being involved here I don't think so. And we you feel the same if Hillary won the election and Chelsea became an active part of the Clinton White House. And also have you ever worked with your kids. Have you or do you work with your kids how does that work out. I personally think it would be very difficult to work with your kids in the same way that it would be difficult to work with.

That is and as soon as we do will react to that we've already started to react to that I wish you convict this guy look this didn't take very long. And if they did not deliver I mean they they just started a little while ago. So they came to a very very quick decision. Now they have a sinister in two to death but this is a death penalty trial prosecutors want the death penalty. But at this is via the conviction face of this the sentencing faithful who will come later. And I guess we the jury just didn't by the argument that well this this guy was delusional or. They did they didn't buy any excuses that he he may have been on given. For his state of mind when he did this it sure seems like it was just pure evil and pure calculation. On his part.

Here's part of what Kellyanne Conway she was very instrumental in the extra campaign here's what she said this morning on MSNBC's morning Joseph about the kids and the administration. They have assured everywhere Joseph and Mika. That there will be a complete distinction and separation no ambiguity. About business holdings they have to separate themselves completely from these fast has their own business holdings boost. He's a young men and women are at the top of their earning keen to sacrifice that they were all meet to go in and serve if that is what they choose ultimately. Is really unprecedented extraordinary the idea that they would complete me. Separate themselves from their businesses are very successful businesses is Michael. I mean is it really that a mutual that it's a muddies the idea that the concept of somebody's kids being this involved in the administration. You know even people who didn't like Donald Trump admired his kids I thought they were sharp. And it seems like in some ways they for the ones who let him in. The right direction on a couple things and it provocative sharpest daughter. Is talking about taking up climate control as her main cause sitting in the first lady's office.

Southern Texas and stories like that Shelby and we don't need to be that way coming from someone who doesn't practice organized religion.

Wait let's not give the criminals are gone because they might kill other people to let's not let's not. Well I'm not for the Obama who we want him in the everywhere it goes and. Well this was such. Atrocity I knew he wants he wants it. He'd sit in beauty is not the route to. What Princeton you know two different. Well Albert we are right now we have to go through the process I I appreciate the call or not I do understand your peer passion I had a takes a moment ago why did even have a trial. If the guy confessed why did even bother having a trial why did they just go directly to sentence. I respect the fact we have a system of justice flawed as it might be. We have a system of justice and we've got to go through the process. And you can't just executed after being convicted they've got to go through the penalty phase. So while it seems so obvious. To many people what should happen in this case. If you start skipping the steps of justice stand I think you're getting into really. Dangerous territory here's a text I had no idea I am picking up your station a big hello from the Alabama Mississippi State line. Yeah we actually are under WWL 870 AM we actually carry over into on into the state of Florida so we do cover this site entire region. As some of your listening on every avenue Melbourne a 53 FM knowing what you know which you have sentenced. Would you set in central since you don't move to death. That's our party general people give your opinion. By going to our web site WWL. Dot com. And there we'll get back to board your comments here just a moment ago we are reacting if you just joined us senate to be guilty verdicts in the Dylan roof trial. Charleston, South Carolina this is the young 21 year old white guy. Who went into a predominately African American church and I'm set their during part of the a Bible study meeting and then got out. And shot. Nine. Struck and killed nine people. He did not take the jury very long at all like just I mean maybe an hour maybe not even enough I I don't know what the exact about a time wise but they started deliberating. I just a little while ago and they came to a verdict almost immediately. And based on what I had known from this case it seemed obvious to me. This is one. Horrible vicious person and I want you to pay attention to all the voices that speak out against Dylan wrote. This is a moment of unity. This is a moment where we should recognize that. There are whites. Who don't support doing roof. In the same way that there are blacks who don't support black criminals. But the news tends to divide us. It is tends to show it's always a black person representing the black point of view and a white person representing the white point of view when in reality. There are people from both sides. Respecting both points of view. But we don't see that that's not what the news gives us. So listen to the voices and watch the voices and and watch the people who are standing up against Dylan roof. Because just because he's white. Doesn't mean he's getting support. From the white community. And anybody in the white community who does support his actions. They are rejected by the great great majority of white Americans. On this day in 1990 Rod Stewart Barry New Zealand model Rachel Hunter who was the star in this video stay sees mom by Fountains of Wayne. When he married Rachel Hunter. I don't know if I can read this on the air but he made some reference to. A banana and a fruit bowl. And basically said that he was not going to put he's been an a anyway he was talking about how he was going to be very faithful to Rachel Clark. They split up in 1999. We'll be right back on every well. The calendar Arizona State December 15 to 1966. The legendary Walt Disney passed away. He died of lung cancer in Los Angeles he was only 65 years old. And if I'm not mistaken I don't know whether it's still frozen or not but I believe he had his brain frozen. Because he was hoping to have it to a transplanted when they found a cure for lung cancer or. Whenever the date of the issue was he was he was part of acquire onyx our plan again I I don't know if his body his brain are still frozen but that was having an hour's remembered about. About Walt Disney. I if you wanna join us we're talking about the verdict it is just come in on Dylan roof he was the young white shooter in. Charleston, South Carolina killing nine African Americans in a historic church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina this is what touched off the whole controversy over the confederate flag. I if you wanna join us with your reaction on numbers 2601870. Rico 5042601. A semi tech's 87870. Here's a Texas says I disagree with most of what you say I'm white and I think. He should hang he should be hung in a town square this coming Saturday at noon. Yes a lot of people. Feels that Dylan wrote this was a death penalty trial but this was not the penalty phase of the trial which is still to come. Believe it is. Young person should be killed. And again we're you know we're not really when it comes to big things like these were not justified it is is. You would have us as is many people would have us believe. And we're certainly not as divided as the news would suggest we are. Because there are white Americans all over this country. Who are cheering. The guilty verdict. Just because he's white doesn't mean that whites are standing by here there are few who do. But anybody who does is rejected by the general white population in America. So I think it's important to to to keep in mind at a time like this. Also we've been talking about Donald Trump and his kids as some of them may be being part of fate his administration with offices in the White House. Ever work with your kids or ever or would your parents eighteen year under the WL. I. Mathieu kids work for me. And now it's gonna get in this case because. In my mouth that's on seventeen and the middle my daughter is McCain. They both were forming. An about it did you and by in case it's it's the subject matter what which they are now. Now joked before. And so part of the training Doherty earth. And then also. Eight we have been able to carry over there you know kind of the parent. Parent child relationship into the job you know where you teach morality thing to Rome and then. I back into the job where now under teaching him how to do something which is to do this job. And he it's worked out really well. Good as soon as there's so so you don't think is a problem with her sort of with the kids. The other camp. I'd pay their candy you know it's one thing we did in my son is back and work for somebody else. In the same industry. To get to get perspective I think that's important to an idea for them. Am I likely be its restaurant toward that record like a New York State that that was when it with pat on the business from one generation to the next. Wind and children not old enough that we haven't worked the competition. That. And it is not as you know kind of you know other people's that the secret the morgue chip to get perspective. Or and it got interesting that's a really interesting idea. And you're going to you know and in this case what I went to work toward someone in the family business to much micro manager kind of person which I'm not. But public Internet okay you know I think you know popular I would. Like manager and then it was like edit now and which are talking about. I mean they ever threaten you and say look Kyle lucky and if you don't if you don't like now we we know your wife and we'll tell her all about it. Your. And I appreciate the call sounds like a great family business if you are holed hang on if you want to join us with your comment on numbers 2601878. Erick are 5042601. It's heavy text Amber's age 7870 once again we got a lot going on this afternoon. The verdict of Dylan roof has just come in and you know I this is just not a surprise to a lot of people guilty. Not a surprise because it just seems so obvious from all that we knew would be right back. And today we wish a very happy birthday to Cindy bird song of the supreme Cindy is 77 years old today and this is some of those classic early hints from the supremes. Back in my arms again. Also is on this day in 1999 board George was knocked unconscious when a mirror ball fell on his head during a show in Dorset England. Wonder why I think that's funny from Hammond Scott you're on WWL. Good. A it. You know but you noted there are some some whites who might like so much that they. Today I think that this guy. Did a good job. What being cool I think that the old. It is important. But now. Our or record operate as if he. Knows how it would work. In it yet. Scott I agree with you here's attacks that says. Scoop the thing about Walt Disney was a hoax. Really. I was so gullible backhand. I believe the story I mean it's been written a couple of different places but I guess this. Mr. Staal to say they didn't really frees his body freezes brain. The Chicago song of the day as 25 or six to four be listening for that that will be your cue to call to win tickets as he Chicago with the singer march the 21. And we'll be back on WWL.
