Bob Mitchell’s in for Scoot again tonight. Some hot topics coming up: Congressman Ted Poe from Texas is calling on President Obama to make a deal with the Mexican government to trade five Mexican prisoners for Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who is currently being held in a Mexican jail. Sort of like the trade we made with the Taliban for one American soldier. Do you think his analogy is correct? PLUS: for years nutritionist and moms have said to “EAT YOUR BREAKFAST!” Now a new study suggests “the most important meal of the day” is not really so important especially for adults trying to lose weight. Do you eat breakfast every day? And as a kid what was your favorite breakfast cereal and do they still make it? ALSO: The Powerball jackpot is again getting above a quarter of a billion dollars. Everyone always says money can’t buy you love or happiness. Do you really believe that’s true? What would it buy for you? AND: Donald Sterling now says he’s not selling the Clippers and is going to fight the NBA. He says the NBA now stands against privacy rights and freedom of speech! Do you think he’s really fighting “the good fight” for his rights or does he just want to raise the price tag for his team?
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?

And I've Bobbitt to end first boot -- filling in for Garland here's what's on our WWL talk table for the ball and give view. The phone number if you care to join us and I'd love you too call it and take part of our conversation. It'll heated sometimes we which we try to keep things as calm as possible to lose zero -- 7866889087. Here's what we're talking about. Congressman Ted -- from Texas. Is calling on the president -- call the Mexican government personally. And say tell you what. Will -- of five Mexican prisoners marine sergeant Andrew to -- Who was being held in a Mexican jail. Or maybe say a word activist then you anymore foreign aid until you let him go. Does that sound like the right thing to do. Now when we're saying this. Just so you know we're not personally. Fifteen on the president. Do not know I'd have to say that. Our last caller was right I'd do not know if the president has placed a personal phone call the information that we have the information that Washington is releasing. Is that he did not. Place a personal phone call and looked at at this late if he did place a personal phone call that's something that they would want us to know because. That would -- a little lead. Show the American public that pay our president is on the job -- the bottom line is. This marine. Has been sitting in jail in Mexico now for a little over two months. And if you don't know the story I was surprised I had lunch the day with just at a at a restaurant in in Slidell loved. Today a new restaurant called expects that apple would love and just. I'm I'm the kind of person I talk all the about -- talking to a couple guys. Who -- were at a table next to me and we were talking about this -- their first thanks a lot. But what sergeant. Marino in Mexico so if you don't know what we're talking about. It's the marine sergeant Andrew probably a -- and his name to more recently he was arrested in Mexico after making a wrong turn. Across the border from California. With fire arms and it legally owns in the United States but they are illegal. In Mexico. Now he's being held in a Mexican jail now for two months. For two months. He's still there. Didn't do anything wrong. And now congressman Ted -- Of Houston from Texas. He thinks it's time for the Obama administration. To bring the charger home. And what he says this of erotic that we can deal with the Taliban. And get an American soldier relieved we can't get them ringing the across the border released this is what has so many people frustrated. Frustrated to the point that a 100000 people plus subsided signatures. A addressed to the White House about what you need to get an official White House response so you know people are saying wait a minute. Wait a minute we didn't we didn't give up five really terrible bad guys. Taliban leaders to get one of our guys back. And yet we can't do enough to get the back from Mexico. What do you think there's this a good analogy to secure one late 78668890870. And a prayer breakfast person. You know nutrition experts of the NTELOS project -- retrospective but -- it's the most important meal of the day. Especially if you wanna lose weight. Will now test to show in this act and doesn't matter that. And just as many people lose or gain weight it if they do or do not eat breakfast so I started to become a fun tonight deflate where. And what do you eat for Europe favorite. Ultimate breakfast at breakfast when you just totally totally want to -- ago the one more thing powerball jackpot. Is getting above a quarter of a billion dollars everyone always says that money can't buy you love or happiness. But Al Green and the so called love and happiness do you really believe that's true do you really believe that if you weren't all that money. It would buy you a little joy. 2601 late 78668890. It's simply what what did buy it for you okay let's go to a -- -- calling from Schreiber Ryan. While they are you won't talk about Donald Sterling right. Talk about it when you'll. You pick it up I'm in a Donald sterling and now says. He's gonna fight the Nvidia. Is gonna take a stand he said that. He believes that the NBA is taken away his freedom of speech. There is a privacy rights. They're not really taken away his freedom of speech win when when you are in an organization like the and the day. June or -- be careful what you say but. I do not believe in anyway. I do not believe in any way that they should force of the so this team you you can I mention this earlier. Went when he bought the team back in and in the eighties. You don't think they knew what kind of person it was you don't think of all these years that -- -- knew these kind of things alleges that while he's on the centric old god. Now that have been out of school on public. Day of course want to trade and protect their brand. And it's all about money they know they don't do this it's gonna -- the NBA money but think about this report like. Two years -- that. Let's face it he went on a racial threat. -- somebody called and told me that I shouldn't judge him and call him a racist OK so he went on a racist rant. And if he sells his team. If they portion of this team for two billion. Dollars. Two billion dollars you can make a ton of money. Isn't that rewarding him. -- Maria. It didn't take away his speech in our yeah he's used to say it just. Like. You know when -- nor should. Like center. It's in this country and -- -- Not like where you want I would. However when workers in the you know organization your job. Whoever it may be. There -- cheap to make rules and rules or don't speak up speak up now we have a king public. You know personally I think it's ridiculous he's gonna make that money -- -- -- -- -- and just. Say. Well what I would do I don't know if you heard in my solution is. Do nothing. You dinner. Earlier just solid play out that's an option to write an outlet and you never know might play he may get players by the -- that he's great in May talk on money still are they just take. Well enough they can do that legally probably not you know probably not but if but but think think about that while that if if they deflated ego. Here is eventually what would happen. Some players would play form. And some what some players would say. Well you know what I will do I will play. Advantage of -- but not everybody wants to play for him and I'll get even more money. I'll I'll pay is out take his money and main hit it the money you. Earlier and more right -- the well it is their right to the -- dump the money is still green. And if if if enough people do not play for him the team will not. Put people in and halls he will lose money and then he will have to sell the team at a much lower price. Wouldn't that wouldn't that be a better example than -- say. Hey you'd order a racist rant for the company and you be useful the company name and we're gonna give you a lot of money to get out. It reminds that thing with. It would TV news network world order where he got you know it came down right and there is the sort of life. The legacy should be able to dislike. Whoever whatever reason you either you know you that street of this country you have that right don't voice is -- its engagement troubling problem. So -- mr. What do you think about the marine in Mexico. That's a shame. You know -- -- for too much and you should come back home you know matters. All of the military. Big ergo our. Horrible people on shall. You know and and personally epic edition and that they can just get the hammering in out of Mexico. When he argues there earlier that you know the congressman offered to treat our prisoners are Mexican prisons well. Wanna watch freedom is actually start dropping off the most horrible. Up next in -- we have in the country on the front doorstep and on the at least sub industry visionary. Well the -- and also says I mean we give vote we give Mexico for and they just and I can depend on auditor. You know and you know someone. Called the -- I think the guy's name with Ron was was basically. Defending the president. I'm not you know this president has done some good he he he -- he did get Osama bin Laden but now. We're talking about one of -- -- we're talking about one of one of our Marines. That's sitting in a a Mexican jail and I've got a text message that says. Heidi you know the marine was going down there sells weapons. There's no proof there's no proof of that nah -- If he had legal. It legal right to have those weapons and someone needs to step up so we can weaken I'm a bottom line person. The bottom line here is we have a marine has been sitting in prison. For two months and he still there Andy and he's their -- absolute bogus charge. Something should be -- whatever whatever our government is doing whether it's wedges whether it's the president or not whatever they're doing they are not doing enough. Yeah.

Well for -- the that are -- but the goal but it it by an effort to whatever outweighed. Cordoba billion dollars. Well at least not about like one sort of in BP. Where the I don't know that by an injury to him and not a big basketball. And I'm I'm I'm football and College Baseball. Right there weaker than. -- thing about it though about it and we basically like you clearly he really came out without. And -- -- we if you -- the -- of control run that you did do that money. Eight ride in and I I talked to these guys that launch and the that I don't know who they -- and they took a step back and they said you know. That makes it so don't I was I was talking to -- he's he's he's my aboard up during and built a lot more than that and he said you know. -- I never thought about that but. The NBA today. They don't want to lose the money the NBA they don't want to lose sponsors think about it this guy and an option out of a couple of times. Are right. We the are supposed to be nice and not judge medals so we -- calling the races will say he said racist things okay. So here's a guy that that says these these racist things that oh and and what he said it was -- was just terrible. But where does anyone think he became a races in the past couple years would anyone think that. -- this is not been part of his life for years and years and years. It is I'll boot. You could go barrack -- if you want big you already to our house discriminate like. Or right or wrong. On this little surprise. You right now that it's public today with. Listen now that you have really messed up real bad will give you two billion dollars to go away. There. So in other words of course I wouldn't do that but in that type of logic that means that.
