Here are couple of Texas are you going to reverse Obama administration's decision not to drill in the Atlantic trump. Have you ever had a mental health valuation it's always the most intelligent people that you are unstable and probably here's my favorite to a question. I would ask him. Forged daughter's phone number on it right to John does he's been the holy north for a few minutes. John over the past eight years of things gotten better worse or stayed the same for you. Wound. Now I'll have received several text messages and a lot of people are saying the exact same thing if you or worse off. Then you were eight years ago he need to look in the mirror because you have a problem with you you agree with that. Party believe it's the politics and problems that the government. Politics Pollack because. They're gonna get more work before. Nobody is sitting there you know that we not at all let him and counsel whatsoever. You better off now than you worry years ago. Me directly mount saint. But. There. The economy overall. Is weighed. Governmental role as we've got a huge gamble to ensure. I don't know if the economy. I am financially not as well below was eight years ago because of a lot of the the interest rates that you got all in on your money in your savings accounts and your CDs has dropped quite a bit so from that standpoint. I don't know of Rabbani as well off today a better off today than there were eight years ago. Let me ask your question and a dollar comes to the cameras press conference at 10 o'clock tonight. If you could go to the press conference and you could ask Donald Trump one question what would you ask him. I lagged down cultural. It is the allegations have been made against them. And Russia. The book slaying definite sense but also treat him. I don't know if anything's but right now it's it's it's just information and today there some people shall end of the book from people. Or say in the you know it's it's it's fake news and he's he's not really been accused of anything. I you know one thing you'd hope that they're going to be other reports are gonna ask that same exact question and you probably saw its all laws. Well he sees the that was once before but and so intelligent. Man. The store in the ball game from my point somewhat social media. Well I don't idol bigger I don't think at this point the intelligence community has said we know this for a fact I think they're just talking about the information. That has come up. I'm all right. Both women when he put and so every ounce for the problem and that. Then then pretty much had been on giver Petraeus to. Get to the problem Ahmadinejad. Ally that did and what it wanted to. But and there are also gonna give the president you know anything they think he might be interested in house. But does not it it'll. Tranche.
