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?

If you're just joining us on is so beautiful Tuesday afternoon and welcome to our show I'm scoots glacier witness I love spending every afternoon which you.

And then a cold front coming through tomorrow night it's gonna get a lot colder you've heard in our forecast. If you're just joining us here's what we have been talking about on the show this afternoon. Our president trump insisted that. The only reason he lost the popular vote was because about three million votes came from illegal immigrants. But he doesn't have any facts to back that up so at this point that's fake news. The president however did have a very apparently had a very productive meeting with the top auto executives today at the White House. Part of his plan to bring manufacturing and jobs back to America. And the question we had was which you pay a little more for product if you knew it was made in America because it may come down to that question. Also we were talking earlier about this woman who was kicked off this Alaska Airlines flight from operating a passenger in the seat right next to work. When she discovered that he had been in the DC area to celebrate the inauguration of Donald Trump. She asked the man were you here to celebrate or protest. Is simple answer was I came here to celebrate democracy the woman started reading the guy. And this was so it was caught on his cellphone video which is gone viral. But he said before that even happened before he turned the cellphone on here's what he says she said. She said I'm entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap I'm going to throw up right in your lap you make me sick don't talk to me don't look at the oh shoot deer even put your arm on that rest you disgust me you should be ashamed of yourself. You put a media X finger on the button Europe bigot you should get off this plane. Interestingly. The woman and her husband were escorted off the plane. And the guy says that time a black gentleman came over on the plane and took the seat on texting him. He said he's a registered Democrat. And they had a really nice discussion. He said this is a great example of free speech in America. And it was about people coming together. You know it an at some point people like that liberal woman have got to get over. And and those on the conservative side who have this hate speech he got to get oh for you know Barack Obama won the presidency. You may not like it but there's still reason to hate everybody who voted for an. And the same thing with Donald Trump the recent hate everybody who voted for Donald Trump he was one of the choices. A one and the congress that if your home state with a subject to a more vehicles in just a moment. But I want Ed the conversation this hour near land through a revealing a plane yesterday to make New Orleans safer for everybody. The plan includes more lighting more cameras on Bourbon Street. It would be monitored 24 hours a day. There would be the elimination of all vehicular traffic through the busiest section suburban street that was something that was in effect over the Sugar Bowl. New Year's Eve weekend and my experience with that in the in the quarter was it was great. And I thought that that should be in effect every weekend is going to be in effect. For the NBA all star game and for morning draws well no the camera cost traffic through those sections suburban street that are most crowd. And also a more controversial new rule that would require bars to close the doors at 3 AM. This is a city that's known for being open 24 hours today. And there are not many cities like this in America this is a really unique thing go cops walking around with a drink and being able them to go into a bar. 24 hours a day. But does anything really good happen after 3 AM is it is it okay two. Is it okay to. Shut the doors at 3 AM. Ours is going to somehow hurt. New Orleans.

Now a lot of people don't know this pipes on a couple of years ago hired Ted Nugent. Tried to blow up Obama's limousine. But he Bertie slips on this the exhaust pipes so apparently two hour I'm scoop we'll be right back on every of your. You know I thought about this song is as bumper music as we talk about this a planned by mail land route to have a bars close. They're doors. At 3 AM. That would be part of a safety plan. Yeah I've developed personal philosophy recently it in New Orleans it and look. I tend to be in early and I spend most of my time at at home even though I've just lived two blocks from there the French Quarter and I consider that to be my neighborhood. I enjoy the French Quarter due spent time there. But I'm no longer out late. And on a weeknight after midnight 1 o'clock on a weekend after one or two you really need to be off the street. So what do you really matter if the bar's closed their doors at 3 o'clock. Is there an argument for. Or is there justification for keeping the bars open after after 3 o'clock now it's my understanding that they're not gonna make you go home. But they're gonna close the door so there's no new customers. And if you if you listen and pay attention to the news so often you hear about bad things happening between 2 AM. And 6 AM. Because there's a different group of people out they're not all of this way but there's a different group of people out during those hours upper cut off Roy here on Devi WL. Thank you. I haven't had that you don't. Cut me off this is not quite product called about. But you know black caller that. Lovely woman. Made a point. That. All of my own them or not here. And I agree 100%. But boy it sure appears. That the majority of fear. About. Well almost all terrorists are Muslims. Yeah okay now back at 3 o'clock in the morning hey yeah. And it will make no difference whatsoever. All that means is that the animals. That go around. Oh. No concern whatsoever pre human rights. Or just about the starter earlier you don't quarters. Yeah I don't know if it's going to I don't know if is that in particular is gonna solve problems on I I liked the idea of limiting the vehicular traffic I saw that today in effect. A copy of publisher dribble New Year's weekend and it was a really really a good feeling and a quarter it really turned it into much more of a pedestrian mall which I thought was a really good. I like the idea of more lightning and and more cameras on Bourbon Street I'm not sure telling the forced to close their doors at 3 o'clock is really gonna. Have much of an impact. I think where I think wherever you are truly be a pedestrian mall. Aren't prepared are you sure you know more like I mean I. Honestly the best looking hook the net and hookers the best looking dancer. The best look at the best looking dancers at the clubs in the quarter they don't even go to work until midnight. I don't know it or not and that's what I heard anyway. Well I appreciate the call. I'd say about all those German thanks solicit. From Holland zeeland John you are now on WWL. He's young. Our. A part of our yeah. A new job out ideas on what is it Obama elected to the door in the market on Politico is what. Or Chris or bad things don't just happen around bars that have the brewers open a 3 o'clock I mean that is it and united I guess the good news is most of the of the crime is not totally random it's. It's a drug dealers it's it's a bad people. Are killing each other. China ebitda that you know that it would probably. Wanna do. It whatever. These you know. Well call it talk about oh you know a moderate Democrat or Republican. But I did vote for low Hillary. He ball or what not apart during the book and I mean but on them anyway I mean I don't support now undergo by. Reporter. I Gardner court and you opera and now we are supporting them. And I hope. Do well you know where Carter. And we did that come together at 1 June college it was their to do it although you know. Noted that content on the boat now. John I appreciate the call it and have to get to under a CBS is a David at CBS news that they coming up and following that Chris Miller with our WWL news update and then I'm coming right back with them more of your comments. I hear is a text that says son at one time police could Borg details at the bar rooms in the French Quarter I don't think they let this happen anymore I would I I think they may be back to that and I'm not sure I'll have to I'll check on that. So if you're Holtz they witnessed more of your calls it mortgage text are coming up but here's an update on a pretty sure we'll opinion poll do you think closing the bar suburban street atrium is gonna make the quarter safer. 8%. Say yes 92% say no give us your opinion Debbie if you'll dot com and we'll be back. That's exactly what the mayor and police chief Michael Harrison are saying don't bring your guns to the French Quarter. So there are plans to make New Orleans safer. They're looking for cameras that can help determine who's carrying a gun and I know that a lot of people are sent with when it was bad but. Nominees you've got a gun legally then you know don't worry about it this may get a lot of guns off the street and you know NO PD does a good job basically say if they do a good job when their big offense getting some. Illegal guns off the street this is not a doubts legal guys I got a text is says a scoop you were not understanding what the mayor said the bars will not close at 3 AM. The bars will close their doors at 3 AM and people outside will be encouraged to go inside the bars will continue to remain open for 24 sevenths. Why not I I get that I I understand. So yeah I mean let's be clear about that the bars are not going to close but the doors are gonna close so I mean in some ways we're talking about semantics. The the door will close the bar mostly open in the back. So I guess you know I guess I gave the impression that did the the bar would have last call and everybody would go home and that's. That's not the case so. AM is this gonna make any difference at all. For apparent hand Sean your Adobe WL. State school Sean. I don't think well I don't bit. I don't think that it's gonna open it and it Burton great clear that a thought that the meant that use chemicals aboard and it was meant to be anymore because you'll be. You know about me be stopped to look into what trying to did it lead the boy pretty close but definitive like Clinton. Bubbles so by that date you revise them be united breweries. Well you know I've lived in a lot of cities where last call we're says it was 2 o'clock AM and that was Sarah somebody get used to having grown up and in New Orleans might not always thought it was like oh really dangerous to empty. You know UST especially if you are an area where there are number of bars you've been empty every bar out to collect everybody's leaving the bar the same time and getting their cars. Yes and I can't wait well and there were a few. She. Well that was I don't didn't go only to save. I think the cameras mail also put you know you can put police and the police took after the crimes in Egypt. Just got to. Know Jack has got to be like her like with two people stepping up saying something. And do not being threatened but it could do to restore old story. You conceive field quality series of yeah and evidence being. Work effort and and. Shown think about how many people on know who shot him and and and police are still looking for information on on who the shooter was. And it and say somebody shot me and I knew who wants until the cops. And yeah I realize it might be easy for me to say that but if you don't tell the cops would make you think that person not an issue to again. Give them the ticket wanted to visit him in the title illegal in the call the school not mill is a good time on public. Not know don't go to. I've been dubbed the ball doesn't float all while doing it might have company is just get it wrong. Family comes to your house. To. I do understand why people don't wanna go to the core I do and and I have a good time in I I try to be safe and I'm still here so obviously I have been relatively safe. John I I appreciate the call so there's been some discussion about what Madonna actually said we had on the show yesterday but I want to replace this for you again today. This was during the woman's march in Washington DC here's what Madonna says that was. Controversy. So she said she thought a lot about blowing up the White House. That's something that does get the attention of Secret Service and it should. How was she really gonna do it. No and I guess there was no evidence to back up her claim that she had thought a lot about it or that there was going to be any action to that. But I still think people like Madonna and and Ted Nugent and Ashley Judd I mean if they say threatening things they. They should go through the process of being held accountable just like everybody else if you wanna join us for the comic this afternoon on numbers 2601870. Area code 5042601878. Text numbers they Seve Seve so we're talking about this a new plan from the mayor and the city of New Orleans. This plan calls for more lighting more cameras on Bourbon Street the elimination of vehicular traffic through the busiest sections on in the cross streets so with the news of her Syria would be a real. A real pedestrian mall and also the bars would have to close their doors at 3 o'clock you think that's gonna help. We'll be right back on WL. On this day January 24 1969. Jethro Tull played their first concert in the United States. May with the opening act for blood sweat and tears at the Fillmore east in New York City.

I yeah there's there's I mean there's there's there's federal funding for abortion although Donald Trump recently made a move to to stop satisfied if I'm not mistaken. But it would federal money. Record well yeah. And I also thought there were some figures well anyway. That people still just because a general funny people still on. That mean I'm sure what like Chris I appreciate the call it getting it to break but when there's no question. That people there are some people who want the government to pay for everything. And it's really sad. 'cause we should not depend on the government and a lot of people have been trained. In their life to take advantage of the system and use the opportunities that they have to take advantage of our government. It's one of the the people are one of the big reasons our government is in debt. I'm scoot we'll be back on WL.
