This whole mob mentality social media that brings out the worst in people.

That now -- social media people to feel like they can take a look at our public about it. It's still -- large part really. You know not because -- that. The time even -- -- like apple -- back to normal -- actually pick out your work or we're talking apartment at all. I made easier to say what ever they want to so it couldn't pick them out but clearly we are not dirty side why. Because we're not acting immunity -- -- -- your expert at gate forty at. On -- family package moved out he lost the job and as a result of that story coming out. And for people haven't seen a docking eating go to just Google -- Albany and cited skateboard dead that. The kids on like what it ten or fifteen. Put in client I guess in the dead for whatever reason you like his body language you don't just panic kicks again and -- -- more pushes him with his foot down the rampant. -- -- video goes on I'm only -- about fourteen seconds of it but from that I. I enough people were able to make up their mind that this guy it was evil and as a result the whole family is suffering now because they've had the mood move and he lost his job. That's right and you know what the problem due in court to protect the baby you're -- -- that in the in this video. Now the dad would be dominant global mood at bat or -- there at the outback. But when you say -- you know people feel like you have a chance to talk back to the news of thing that. I guess bothers me a bottle this we're getting ready to talk about veterans hospitals and problems that there have been there and the president issues a statement yesterday and I'm not trying to. To be political about this at all is it goes back to previous administrations. But it's it's not like gambling in Rick's casino is a little really we have trials of the veterans hospitals no kidding. But nobody -- nobody gets fired -- about -- on social media but let there be twelve seconds of idiotic video and then all of a sudden it's nationwide guessed her on.

Make some changes in the country that need to be changed you'd actually have to and I'm not be in Maine but you'd actually have to read about and delivered a resurgent find out. What the hell you're talking about before you know what you think you would have to actually do some research to find out what you're talking about as oppose a watch in a 122. Clip of video. And then here's doctoral back with a -- ramped up. Doctor -- what I was saying is I think you know it comes to research and having to find out really make an educated opinion how to fix things. And twelve seconds of video maybe it's -- seniors react to that instantly and make it to up to be whatever you want. Exactly the unit in politics you're it would people boat people on things where to start and commercial and they've made it in my go in the literature. And -- both sides are out making up their mind and well and so. But we get a lot of profile and second of commercial on -- side of the story people will be really really likely to roster decision. That they. Well people don't usually have an opinion to the current. Doctor appreciate you time to become the gunman's.
