Which party is the most hypocritical...Democrats....Republicans or Libertarians?
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?

First up on our show this afternoon there is some breaking news Orlando police officer has been gunned down while she was on duty. Our lead a police have announced an officer was killed it is official now. The the Twitter account this morning said the shooting happened near a Wal-Mart store in Orlando earlier this morning. The tweet read if one of our own which taken in the light of duty there are no words. And there was a host of the officer's body being taken out of the hospital wearing waiting for a fan in a flight comfort stretcher. The suspect. Is. Mark Heath. Lloyd. And the last I heard it was he's been caught. The last I heard he still on the loose in fact tragically. Another Orlando police officer was killed in a motorcycle accident pursuing. The suspect. Was I say as far as I know we still on the loose having it there could be breaking news at any time the tape that caught the guy. The police chief says that we will find this guy and he called in the dirt bags that we will get the start I can bring in the justice. And somebody knows where he is. I hearsay chief John Maine on the Orlando police chief at a press conference earlier today. I regret to inform our communities that Warner are here is and lose the shot killed in the line duty. You know this is another sad story Mary you know we don't know all the details but apparently this guy was in the Wal-Mart. And the police officer had been shopping there and she was putting banks in her hurt at the truck for car. And somebody said something to her about a guy inside the guy comes running out. On he doesn't stop I think she shouts out stop he does it stopped and time he shoots her. He fired off according to this witness about twelve shots three of them hitting the officer is more what to police chief had to say. We have a lot police resources. Trying to catch the suspect. Local state and federal authorities. Are all working together diligently. To bring him to justice and he will be brought to justice in this is just a reminder of what police officers. Deal with on a regular basis and I think sometimes that gets lost of their. There are bad cops we we know that there are bad people in in every walk of life. They're more good than bad if there weren't there would be even more tragedy our streets. The good news is there's more good than bad and it it's just it's. It's tragic when this happens and again it's a reminder of how. People. Ten to treat now some people tend to treat our police officers if you wanna join us with a comic this afternoon on numbers 2601870. Very code 5042601878. Text embers a 77 he also this hour let's talk about senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. He's meeting with president elect Donald Trump today effectively meeting has already taken place but this was scheduled for today. The senate begins confirmation hearings on some of Trump's cabinet nominees. Tomorrow. Democrats have taken issue with the hearings schedule. Because they say it's happening too quickly. And it all the paperwork is not done. So we can't do the proper background checks on some of the nominees. The government ethics office says it has not received even. Draft financial disclosure reports for some of the nominees set to appear before congress this week. Many of the wealthy businessman. On The Who have never held office before our. Among those that they're waiting for these draft financial disclosure reports from. Now Mitch McConnell is saying the Democrats are playing politics. Because there are trying to slow down the process. The Democrats and the government ethics office. Are saying wait a minute we're not trying to slow anything down we just need you guys to get the paperwork done. Back in 2009. This would have been playing president Obama was being inaugurated. And when he was making his. Cabinet picks. Back in 2009 Mitch McConnell demanded that cabinet contenders. Complete all the paperwork before the lyrics. Now Mitch McConnell apparently is not for that. Does the political hypocrisy in this country drive you insane. An aid for its mean knots. I don't see how people can. I don't see how they can talk to us I don't see how politicians can actually talk to us with a straight face when they say one thing. And don't rectify that they never reconcile that they've that they've changed their opinion on something. And explain it better. Mitch McConnell is complaining that all the paperwork is not that all the pick fortunate done but that the congress is slowing things on the Democrats start to slow the process down. And McConnell demanded that the same thing that did Democrats are demanding now he demanded that act in 2009. Here's a pretty general opinion poll this hour which political party is more hypocritical. Democrats. Republicans. Libertarians. Get issue for you by going to our web site WW dot com I mean the that the hypocrisy that you see in the news almost every single day. Is maddening to me. There's a bomb he was much is it bothers me and which party do you think is the most hypocritical and if you if you have a an opinion. Why do you think that party's more hypocritical. Our numbers 2601870. Erika at 5042601870. Tech states have VA Stephanie. I execute and we'll be back in trivial. Happy birthday today to Dave Matthews of the Dave Matthews Band fifty years old today I'm scrutiny afternoon here's a quick update on our parties are bought a new poll. Which political party is more hypocritical. 45% say the Democrats. 53% say Republicans. 3% say libertarians. Leadership team by going to our web site WWL dot com here's a textile scoot. Both are hypocritical depends on who's in office. And the text says where's the both option. Well the question is which party is more hypocritical. And since both parties are hypocritical. Obviously if we had both up there that would be the most popular choice. But I like to with our attorney general opinion poll I like to challenge you to pick one over the other and sometimes when you have both it's just too easy to just put down both. So which political party do you think is more hypocritical Republicans Democrats. Libertarians right now Republicans leave 53%. It was your opinion by going to our web site WWL dot com afforded to like your calls. Here's son Mitch McConnell dishes after the meeting he had a meeting with Donald Trump earlier today and said that the meeting was good it was about confirming the cabinet members. The president elect and I had a good meeting about the senate agenda which of course includes. Confirming a cabinet appointments. Getting. Further down the road toward repealing and replacing obamacare. I've been here's what bothers me about Mitch McConnell. Now I look at your trust supporter this is not gonna body. Activity that's disturbing because what we should be bothered with the is just the blatant hypocrisy. In 2009 Mitch McConnell demanded that cabinet contenders. Complete. Paperwork. Before their hearings. Like financial disclosure reports. This was when Barack Obama was first being inaugurated. And when Obama was selecting his. His cabinet members. So what 2009 Mitch McConnell demanded that the paperwork be completed. Now Mitch McConnell is saying that the the Democrats are trying to delay things because they're demanding that the paperwork like draft like got a draft financial disclosures. That he's demanding that they -- be completed by the time the hearings start. So they're slowing down the process. I mean which isn't. You know one thing I love to do when they show and we do almost every day. Is or nothing hypocrisy. And the saddest thing about all of this is that. The apart when she is never recognized by those who were actually at a critical. I don't see it. It yet it dislikes or blatant I mean. Are we a nation of stupid people. I mean how can we don't recognize us. It's both sides. Right now we're talking about Mitch McConnell but don't call the show and say we you never say that about the Democrats because I do. But in this case we're talking about Mitch McConnell. An even if you're a Republican isn't this. Political hypocrisy. If you would like to join us on numbers 2601870. Area code 5042601870. At a Texas 877. From the north short. On your WWL. Shoot. A and at. Its individual that individual. You. More. Good vision and balm. Legislature. But that. All our. Long ago. Koppel at. The end but she. Would option. Witten. Or. They. Yeah. It. Stop by. Mail so. And there and at the I. The pop it. Out. The cut him off the. John I've I I've pointed that out the F today it it's like there's more focus on the Democrats blaming the Russians bent on blaming themselves for four on unfairly. Making it appears if they wanted to make sure that Hillary Clinton got the nomination. But let's also remember that the Republicans were guilty of working against Donald Trump I mean they wanted anybody but as a party they wanted anybody but trump to be the nominee. All. In. All. But. Are. Well. It. Bill. What. What. It is job. Call. A spy. I. John I respect the fact that you admit that at one point you were not for trump which you are now and that's the only thing that that I asked that's the only thing that really diffuse is the Epoch receipt. If Mitch McConnell would say okay look back in 2009. This is why did this. And this is why I feel this way today but you don't you don't hear that and and you didn't even hear that from Hillary Clinton with a whole email server scandal. She was a contrite enough she didn't say will look that's the way I was then this is what I've learned and this is why I feel this way today why would never happened so. You know again that the political pot hypocrisy at play it's it's it's a that we deal with daily an issue and I love doing it because I don't think it's enough of this on the air in the media. From the rose junior on Devi of of June I'm gonna ask you to hang on because not got to get to CBS news update here and then we'll get it right back to your comments if you would join us. 2601870.

Graduate this year to song is not necessarily about me. Here's an update on attorney general opinion poll. Which political party is more hypocritical 59%. Now say the Democrats so and now a new majority says the Democrats. 41% say Republicans and 1% say libertarians. Yeah I don't even think the libertarians aren't competition here. I gonna take just a moment ago that says may be able to to the point where. I'm gonna continue the way it is and a libertarian president will be present facts here's the here's the attacks. Politics one on one. Deny everything. Admit nothing and hopefully the Republicans and Democrats stick to this philosophy when they will have a libertarian president. If it's true. They. Started unity thing they deny everything and yet. It's not that they think we're dumb enough. The truth is we are dumb enough to accept it. We accept it election after election after election and we never as a as a voting public. Collectively we don't hold them accountable. If you gonna join us for the comment on numbers 260. When it's happening. Every coach 504260. When he semi tech state 77 you are remind you that. Coming up right before the top of the hour news at 2 o'clock committee give out a code words and you got a chance to win a thousand dollars in our nationwide. Free money contest you have to do is continue to listen. From the rose by Jude thanks for hanging on welcome to the show. Yeah okay Buddha. 01. Troll opened Democrat bull. Oh I didn't know which portage did the year round it'll didn't care. A lot during all that they'll do you could be bigger tail off and now you recent global warming and it or use when it comes up. I think you do know what they do then they start to pay attention it then they then they start to hug you and they make it seem like they're really do care right before the election and everybody forgets about the rest of the the term. It. What president he'd go well. But not literate but life in a quick Ford. What are. It awarded ball. Up and so called great white hope it's gonna be here. What. People building casinos and he could get there are real people need to do it could be David duke. So you think he should step do you think he should divorce yourself from the business ties. These and make. It in its first eight. He got to do what you gonna do 200 point. Saying it would think. Oh lead on him. Q you're right about that I I've I appreciate the call you know a truck is gonna have to perform. Because there. Are a lot of people as you know the popular vote went to Hillary. So there are a lot of people who did not vote for Donald Trump. A lot of people who did not vote. And among those who voted. More individuals voted for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. So he's gonna have to perform. And there's no guarantee of a free election so let's see what need to be caught I'm willing to give him a chance. And I think he since he was legally elected president this is the way the system works and I think everybody needs to give. Donald Trump a chance. But yet it's gonna be there would be the responsibility of the media. And talk show hosts and you as voters. To hold him accountable. From the nor sure Judy welcome. Back to that other politics Karl. You know I buy it now exactly what true. Seal. You know all right so actually hacked into your aura that apps act that group and but I according to call that we should thank who are. Well yeah I mean that they're there there are those who make their arguments unity event Maine thank god they revealed the truth to us. That you or I wanted out. Oh. Love it the truth is what was written in the emails and and they obviously the Democrats we're not going to release that information now is they're equally. I negative information on the Republican side that was not police because. Because ultimately. Russia thought they were going to have a better friend in Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton I think this is strong possibility if that. I I think there I think there's a lot more to their story then and you know. And you know or or a bit of Black Sea and you know to me. Questioning our own intelligent. At him and they bring up our country and never get our brand. Unheard of and it it just. Astronomically. Wrong to me I. It even unpatriotic. I don't. I'm very much in favor of the US capping a good working relationship with Russia because if we have a good relationship with Russia were less likely to get into war with Russia so I think that. That part of it is is a very positive thing not a negative thing. The hack into our computer system. There is something wrong with this picture. Of a country at done. That we L. So there there and you're. Out ration not a normal situation of course what we thought the country of course we. But it is not an expert on the block that I like it the. But if it is it is it is true that the Democrats it in my opinion maybe it's not true but in my opinion to Democrats should have done had a better job of focusing on the negative stuff that was revealed as not just playing the Russian acting because. What was revealed damaged Hillary during the campaign. We feel that let you talk about her male. No what was revealed was that the Chilean sea and there are. On the DNC under Debbie Wasserman Schultz was who was doing things two to favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. And it was almost as CF. Does that fit in two villas. This non story line for campaign that it's my turn to be president I've I've done this I've done that. It's my turn I'm entitled to this and that did not that did not go over with the American people and the emails that were. Released from the DNC did reinforce that. But I thought the match up. But I also think that was pretty epic what you release their tax information like every other president it. There's something that you a lot. Judy I pre collar. Part thanks for being with us if you when I join our conversation this afternoon our numbers 2601. A seventy. Every coach final four to 60187. He text 87070.

Russia has done some things that indicate that they're not our friend but I honestly believe that that had a lot to do. With the relationship. Barack Obama with Vladimir Putin with Democrats are with Russia and I mean to be honest with you just like before Ronald Reagan became president. There seems to be a lack of fear in the United States. And there's there's there's that there's a good aspect of fear when it comes to maintaining peace. We'll be right back on revenue of derail.
