Bob Mitchell’s in for Scoot…lots of hot topics: when is it okay for a restaurant or business to refuse service? A 3year-old girl, who was maimed and lost an eye in a severe pit bull attack, was reportedly asked to leave a KFC restaurant because her appearance was “scaring other customers.” Does this fall into the right to refuse service? KFC offered the family 30 grand to say I’m sorry. Is that enough? Would you accept? PLUS: is the name of Washington’s NFL team on its way out? The United States Patent and Trademark Office canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration, calling it "disparaging to Native Americans.” Do you believe “Redskins" is an ethnic slur? Redskins owner Daniel Snyder vowed he will never change the name. After this ruling should he reconsider? Will potential loss of revenue force his hand? ALSO: Is telling a lie for any reason okay? In a rare unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that an anti-abortion organization, has legal standing to sue regarding Ohio’s False Statement law. The law makes it a criminal offense to knowingly or recklessly make false statements about a candidate—what ordinary people might call lying. Is telling a lie ever okay? Would you vote for a candidate if you knew he or she lied about their opponent? Would you be willing to lie in court for a close friend, if it meant saving your friend from going to jail for life? AND: on the lite side-- You can select one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question,…who would you choose and what is the question?
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?

You know on the other side of this as. What do we do in in this society any chance we get a an opportunity to sue. Someone does something a little bit wrong and their their no war there's no more ball -- are no more accidents it in our society. Someone's always looking to sue and make a bunch of money so. When you look at that side but does KFC. They offer of thirty Grande do they would offer anymore at all and is telling a lie. For any reason. OK maybe you can share with via timer too when you. You told alive for a good reason and I'm a wonder how many guys have used this for a or -- told the slide. I'm only going up for one beer that's ultimately having one beer but the guys aunt and I'll be right now on the light side and did and this from the personal -- You can select one person from history. And have them truthfully answer one question who would you choose. And what is the question you can select one person from history. And have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you choose. And one of the question to figure what it's 7866. And nine awaits them they already know -- Amendment to the caution ahead of time capsule got a good start ago. Mine would be Lee Harvey Oswald. And I would -- Did you really killed JFK all bully yourself walls of the conspiracy. That's what -- talked let's go to John in Slidell laureate John thanks for hole. Doing good thank you. Pardon me for coming from the other side this is morally it's a bit extorted -- Red Cross your list and on the thirty that first thirty go to me that -- Yorman salute that. If they had given the 30000. And that balance something they might not shall beat the chicken for six months anywhere John. The leadership question do you find a little interest into the obviously you were the same article I read where they said that they were investigated. To see exactly what happened. But we contribute 30000 dollars a month and he's. That means you already know what happened now they're gonna try to figure out how to cover their butts in the best way. But I don't see it that way are generally -- pretty pray they did something. Or or. This quarter real shut down or so on I don't think they need in that hey here's why am I may be totally out. All right you're saying that it may not be the truth. I'm saying they. Went out and it's -- -- the -- are. Just grossly irresponsible media and -- old little girl goes to beat him. A -- important grandma right now. Three dog attack her. Tibet or what border what is useful -- -- which the three pit bulls they're. All I'm saying is and I seen it on a book four and and I -- Graham stories under per cent pack and I mean. People I -- And look beautiful girl deserves all the medical help she couldn't yet -- everybody. And then it just. I want to believe that people are bad cruel Bob May be one incident eating at some point you. But I do. One look at the other side in wonder what one of the things that -- that came out message board where I did read it. On grandma culture story little bit of a rookie starter put it on great book in and Vietnam. You know get your percent openly -- -- I don't know that to be two totally accurate. But it down. I feel I feel there must be some truth to it because I don't Arnold KFC. What would have written a check -- and issued a statement well while they stand behind her and they they wanna do whatever they can -- I believe that probably would happen is that the with an initial investigation. And it might have just been one person but in all our eyes sometimes looked at at at the other side of this to. We in in our society and I'm not saying that KFC shouldn't helpful girl. But sometimes in this society it's almost like. We'd look to sue for any reason at all -- you can no longer make mistakes in the society. Will eat you also. Lower would be too cynical here could the school girl as a result. Yet but it. But putting this story on a grandmother -- -- who's gonna get secret connections can -- actual topic on hand. And further that only her but -- that other people. Rome new illnesses and spoke on principle to the sort of you know gain and -- people well I don't. I've I think -- I think I've picked up the the story from -- I believe it was Romo put the TV station that the that ran the store job do you think it's ever OK to lie. If he can help -- you know there's an instant and bottle on an average. Order. Two angels line orbit anyway Bob when he -- to go date somebody like that would be the the only time when year or helping to Marty. You know -- -- What about when something. Would about something when your -- says can you tell of lost a few pounds and you can't. Do you. Mean -- you that you tell the truth and let out there aren't at. That's surviving. The good news or are -- -- an annual -- says the you'll my mom. All of course. Of course only. There's been lying -- in network or dared admit that like you said that -- look I just want to look at the other side. And I almost feel bad for doing it because I do this well if it would happen the way. If it. He you know people just don't make counts of money to keep him lead on going search is too little and end. And I just don't want to believe that people like it could make one -- in the group said something that. People that -- let's -- All right -- let's go to Bob on the Northrop Bob first of all thank you for holding on for so long. Let's see on the screen you have a story you -- tell what your daughter what happened. Yeah what -- involved but. Your first I want KFC has got to hire people with more common sense. But you'd think so well. You know maybe minimum. Raising the minimum wage it would -- I don't know. But I have another -- story my daughter was four years old was diagnosed with type one diabetes. And that the great work and but at age five she was doing all of their medications by herself. And she found out that she real pal. He's walking into the issue travels with me all over the country.

Who had been attacked by a pit bull lost and my initial in in the pit bull attacked. Was reportedly asked to leave -- KFC restaurant because customers were complaining that her parents. Was scaring them. -- this fall in the late to refuse. Searched more emotional talking about is it ever okay. The -- lie and go I don't know why we -- we brought this subject up the Supreme Court ruled. And you have the kind of followed with -- Nixon summit. In as the Supreme Court ruled that an anti abortion organization. Had legal standing to assume. Regarding all -- false statement law -- law. May actually criminal offense to knowingly or ridiculously. Make false statements about -- candidate. In other words the ordinary people might call lines so that's Alexei and lol it's -- the law. Is it ever okay July would you vote for a candidate if you knew he or she lie about their opponent. And lonely when we're talking about these commercials these political commercials. How many of you. Actually think I'm of one of what you'd call mailed us how many of you actually think. Every ad you see or hear that they are telling the truth. The whole truth and nothing but the truth comment if you look at these ads and say optimal and that's going to be like and I know -- a sue. I assume that in all these commercials. I assume that somebody's line and almost every one. Or they are totally distorting the truth. 26 or 1878866889. OH seventy I'm Bob Mitchell improved note let's get to via both of 02 Brian Miller or you Brian. Eight Bubba thanks take a look I'll -- about whole redskin fiasco. I -- -- major problem what it says that bit the system in the country sent out to the point where. You know somebody treat the product and they tied it in the market the product you -- and a couple of people. Whether or not they -- support that product code. And why so many people built according I mean the Gretzky advocate for a prompt can't game the year. Obviously the big workers have no problem but the -- and Tom you know OK let me see him on NBC. He's -- opening game Simoni ESPN Monday Night Football. So effective offensively. And we took out the free market I mean if people really don't like the product because it didn't seem that. They will not support it they will not unity when people. And you know on the outcome of it from the people look at it and we got -- is a wayward marketing it pretty well they do educated. It did all it is obvious that it's not offensive to the majority but I want you to listen to this. Text message and -- had just lost a toast of the screen. Jumped. -- debate as to say a year ago. This makes me think. Bob if you had an American Indian for an would you be comfortable calling his kids and grandkids. Little Redskins to displace. What that makes me think. Yeah. Pop it. Patriot that's my problem I don't know if that is offensive to blow up the film. -- to pin the upon what the name they think the whole thing ridiculous. Yeah I had a text message earlier promo. A full blooded Indian and so that being called Redskins is the least of their problems. People we care and -- -- It. Is then. You know so we -- that this country to meet the Internet or in Indy you -- -- The patent system. You speak which you if you don't agree with the prop up and you -- you know people. That. If you look at television. Or television today. You'd pay attention outs and it is stupid and egregiously stupid people to break. Alert so yeah. -- do. They can do it right there. You have the Pacific come in the neighborhood and betrayed -- strong. Independent woman it all the answer -- look at -- whatever situation. Commercial and control of calm cool and the police. And destroy everything. Could we. Put it. Out. Between it and maintain that need to be paying. It's in the product right now complain about it take puppet of you know. That -- of the. -- -- the owner of the Redskins finished on and he has no choice though because since they have canceled. The trademark registration that means that anyone good or not Washington -- T shirts -- what church or whatever. And he would get no income from the -- -- also. He's I think is going to be forced entries and they now because -- but that means at all. All the jerseys with the -- with the Redskins means that since he doesn't no longer owns the trademark that people make any money. And there's so much money to be made and that I'm good I'm gonna predict he might change it to the Washington Indians or something like that. Well credited with the second -- that happened that happened apparently in 1980 known as well. When you -- the patent. Or whatever. I didn't know that and you know. And the second column is apparently and I know college and tomba. You know this thing they've taken them -- moral -- that's where it's and I'm an immigrant and I do not like day -- night at all. Just because it's free agency shenanigans -- Yeah and you know appreciate it to ridiculous contract like that Paula you know become a real McCain try to get creative good. -- you mean like that wonderful deal he made Albert means worth. -- One. How electable in the make me a deal like that. -- God but it -- you know it doesn't that mean he could be a major media market -- -- -- the on the top of the publicity. At the right into and the good these. The talking about -- import export to any body out of big east. And it just makes no and they -- meeting you look at that not workable. I mean he thinks it's ever been pretty simple -- it. It doesn't -- All right Brian here's our light question of the night. You can select one person from history one person from history and have them truthfully answer one question. Who would you choose and what the question but he. The the pretty upload short note but I would probably go out model. And -- a question about is politics book far. He knew way back. About tyrannical government Weller Caminiti nailed it -- book I don't really shocked that somebody over 2000 years ago new. Exactly. I'll -- -- Hitler created a committee. And mine would be very simple Lee Harvey Oswald an -- woman though did you really shoot JFK and did you act alone. My will be very simple appreciate your calling Brian. -- 02 Michelle how are you Michelle. Always good to have the -- phone -- warriors. I -- So what what do you think about the situation. At the KFC where three year old girl. Who was. I mean she's lucky she's she's survived this does it pulled to and she its stars are -- -- -- on -- -- of -- half over place was paralyzed but it's a terrible situation happened on a call one out early on -- the grandfather had like. Ten that bulls in the trial was visiting and there -- three pit bulls attacked her but anyway. Someone what he complained. And said that her face was too scary and the pastor belief. I didn't. And being. -- -- for our I -- a pair. I would point greatly to draw the line at the right turkeys are you guys act and act -- country and a lack of freedom to act. He -- -- mean. You and the pork and that means indignities and that person. You know I think he's got a car -- didn't -- did little or. Not. It not right exactly all kinds of laws and you can't -- to offer and the corporations are honored to investigate. Union needed something wrong. That's my thought on it in on unknowing of the dollars of all it did that as the Arctic. I don't know I I would have to think. That a better PR thing would be if you did do anything where you immediately. Issue a statement and you say. That is totally 100%. Balls KFC would never ever ever. Do anything like that we train our people that just didn't happen if you if you plunked down thirty grand in the beginning. You'd make because and good attorney would say it in a way you're admitting guilt. Exactly. And it quietly like an American and the ability is packed. Is it. Either want to add it. All. Day on the -- it out each and in the bad. Thing. Happened. I'm looking. People are in part they're like I am content. Knocking. I'm not a -- yeah.

Little have to happen though is Snyder's attorneys would have to file. And the media -- appeal and that would probably protect them for awhile.
