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?

George Clooney starring as Edwin Edwards in a movie. Negotiations apparently are underway for a movie about it would have which biographer Leo Honeycutt says that he's working with somebody on -- -- a screenplay about the life and times of Edwin Edwards. Which you go see that movie. Now UN I know a lot about it when Edwards because he's in the news all the time here in over the years we're familiar with his story. But I guess because of this phenomenon of him going to prison getting out of prison. Being an older gentleman having much younger wife. And now fathering a child that I think mathematically could be his. Grandchild. Enemy could be used pretty good to be is great grandchild but it is great ticket to easily his child abuse -- So that a cause a lot of a lot of talk advice. And since he had a reality show I don't know if it's distilled water and two which -- -- -- his wife and that is created some interest around the country. But I think OK George you know I saw the picture that we got on our website at WW dot com the picture of George Clooney and young it would neighbors. George Clooney could play Edwin -- here's the big question now. How many different actresses. But I have to hire to play all of his wives and -- France number six on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. The unemployment rate has fallen to six point 1%. The US economy added 280000. Jobs last month. That is the fifth consecutive month of an increase. Of over 200000 jobs each month. Now I tell you this because if you watch Fox News or listen to ultra right wing talk show host you know you can hear much about it. Because this is really positive positive news about the economy. Now it's interesting that a lot of people will say all that the numbers are cooked of those hard or serious number greeted as they did something with the numbers to make it look good. But it's also interesting to note that the same people who believes the high unemployment rate. And use that to condemn the president. But the same ones who now say well those numbers don't really mean anything. So you really can have it both ways also the Dow Jones did Dow Jones closed in over 171000. For the first time ever. I honestly I honestly thought the economy was gonna collapse if Obama was reelected I'm not saying this out of defense of Obama. But I'm not principally. Talking about how ridiculous it -- to save the economy was gonna collapse. If Barack Obama was reelected president it has not. And I hope that nobody's disappointed. That the unemployment rate is down. And and beacon mortgage rate has has gone down as well jobs are being added. And the Dow Jones closed over 171000 for the first time ever now of course there may be a correction or somewhere but the point is. The president really doesn't have as much as a lot of people. What you to believe. It doesn't have as much due -- economies and people would have deeply. The president is more of figurehead but. He doesn't really controls the economy to where some people seem to think and and all these threats that -- in and that that's what they weren't they were threats if you vote for Obama he. The economy's gonna collapse. And that hasn't happened so I just I thought it was fair to point that out number five on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Cable news ratings continue to draw up. Fox News still dominates MSNBC and CNN but the ratings for all of the cable news channels. Are -- MSNBC was number two CNN struggling at number three. He's still watch any of the news channels. And which ones you watch. I help you you you channel surf I hope you go back and forth between the different wanted to just focus on one. They are biased and I don't think there's anything wrong with that tidbit you just need to be Smart enough to know that their cable news channels are biased and they have a right to be bias but it you know you have to use your intelligence in and realize that. That they are. IC what CNN and MSNBC are doing and -- -- fox is by far the best they are by far this quickest if they're not fair balanced. There. Very conservative although they seem to be changing just a little bit and -- on the show last night Megyn Kelly's new here hairstyle. It reminds me of David -- The early years of David -- reached really attractive entry Smart. And I -- new hairdo. So you might -- down on Fox's the departures usually -- in terms of the presentation in the entertainment value. But he watching any of the cable news channels.

The year cable news. Channels do not really attract as many people as you would think. And a -- came in in in fourth place but -- while Fox News still dominates. A Fox News is still losing a lot of viewers in the very coveted demographic of 25 to 54 adults. And most of those who watch the cable Newser channels are over over seventy. Number for tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Police in New Orleans are looking forward to more people in connection with the Bergen street shooting. Justin Odom the twenty year old who was questioned as a person of interest. In the fatal urban street shooting early Sunday morning. Has been released because of jail overcrowding. I know I mean you I'm wondering well is there somebody that we could let go in May be kept him. But he's innocent until proven guilty. I he was being held in Jefferson Parish but questioned by NO PD -- Lisa arrested on -- and related to charges but now they have have released on. Still photographs of -- they're not they're not. Graphic photographs I believe their infrared photographs. Of two other people that they're they're looking for the -- -- tonight is about its rush to judgment. In suburban street shooting case and also in the case involving the Georgia father. Who left his 22 year old kid to literally bake in the car. And the scoop legs about how many Americans a rush to judgment in both of those cases. And may have been very wrong this duplicates on our website at WWL dot com -- chairman others. Number three at tonight's list of the top eight at eight. I wonder if those who have signed the petition demanding that the charges be dropped against Justin Harris the Georgia father who left his 2.2 year old son in hot cars die. I wonder if now they're having second thoughts. After it was revealed in court today that the father apparently had an unhappy marriage. And we sexting six women. One I believe under age. Six women as he sat at his desk. While his son. Was dying in the hot car. That could establish. A motive. It was also revealed today that he was having financial trouble. He -- wife the mother of their son Cooper was not happy with his spending habits. They had a total of 527000. Dollars in life insurance policies. On just went to Michael. -- a little bit unusual not everybody takes out a life insurance policy on their child. It's not unheard of -- I'm assuming it was whole life of me he could not possibly have been term insurance. Maybe he was just trying to build up of a bank account for the child but here's a guy who was just initially. Defended by so many people. Oh look at the cute pictures of him and his -- oh my god this father's destroyed the police should drop charges because he's a grieving father. And it is grief is enough of -- punishment. Well. Certainly the the sexting. And the information about the life insurance policies and an unhappy marriage these things. Could simply be. Coincidence. This could be simply circumstantial evidence this doesn't necessarily mean he's guilty but it does paint a very different picture. Of the -- so many people rushed to defend. As soon as they heard the story. Number two in tonight's list of the top eight at eight. Well she she looks like she could be trophy wife Monday. But right now she's a trophy hunter Kendall Jones is a nineteen year old cheerleader for Texas Tech University really attractive girl. She's being criticized because she goes to Africa. And she trophy hearts. She kills lines. White rhinos and other majestic animals. So obviously they're there women who hunt and I've known that that's that's not to. A secret. But when I saw this story I I did have to ask myself. Why would people do that and and I'm I'm not a harder but he admitted that on the show. I'm you have a right to hunt dive I don't two I don't oppose her -- a beat -- not against you if your daughter. And I know there's so many hunters in this part of the country but I'm just simply being honest -- -- I'm not a harder. Now I I eat some meat I don't eat red meat but I do enjoy. And poultry and fish so I guess it makes me somewhat hypocritical I don't particulate. But but honestly if if you kill it I don't -- -- the lobster in the pot of boiling water but I'll eat it. I don't wanna put the -- you know and nobody -- the crawfish to look at you with those little black beady eyes. You know they look up that -- their claws -- please please don't put in the border please don't. I can't do it digest. Can't bring myself to do that. If you put him in here. -- -- But I got to thinking about this said -- attracted nineteen year old cheerleader. Who's a trophy under. And it may be it may be wonder what do you get out of a trophy hunt and maybe you've never being. On that kind of a heart. But if you're -- -- and you wanna explain to me and and again I'm I'm. I'm accepting this information with an open mind it's it's not something I do I'm curious. What is it that you get out of it. I understand more. About hunting for food or if you enjoy the sport reporting. You eat what you kill. And a lot of people have that philosophy. If they killer. -- edict. Against -- careful about what they kill. But what is it about a trophy hunt. That would bring you satisfaction as a human being. You're sneaking up on an animal with a high powered rifle Nikhil. -- to do anything to you know like you -- and fear fight with the animal. Killer disease in the process. So what is it that somebody gets out of being a trophy harder. And are you woman who -- As your wife or girlfriend. And I would want to try to understand the pleasure. In killing a beautiful animal.

That's a that we talked about on the show. I know somebody's gonna take this wrong. But when I have been really really tired. And the times that I have admitted in the past. That I have beer and drunk behind the wheel of a car. And thank god nothing ever happened that's not something I do anymore but I have to look back in my life as many of you would have to and admit that you did get behind the wheel of the car when you had too much to drink. I felt like I was better. Having had too much to drink there when I was tired. Because and it does it mean that I'm promoting either one. But when I'm trying to point out is I don't think we pay enough attention to how dangerous it is to drive while drowsy. And there's also a new study that shows that speeding related deaths are increasing. So I you know I see it all the time people speeding. Why do people speak what you speak we think about why do you speech. And is it my imagination or does it seem that more men speed. And women.

They were so many people who immediately said drop the charges against this guy he's a grieving father and hampered his grief is enough of the punishment. And yet we're learning things about him that he had his double life and I wonder if people who've signed that petition. Maybe having second thoughts.

At a text number is 878 Saturday police looking for two more people in the investigation of the suburban street shooting early Sunday morning. We've got their pictures it's scan of infrared pictures so we really can't see any. Real distinguishing. Features. The I'm not sure what race they are but I think we learned about the the two people of interest. Whose pictures were posted our website and an all over the media is that he you can't be too quick to judge who may be involved. And even if it does turn out to be young black males. How does that affect the fact. That it happened. Here's a Texan -- good I've heard you say on the radio before that if the speed limit is seventy you'll do 79 and the reason is. That you gave was because you can get away with it over nine miles over the speed and you know I don't of course and I could get away with it but I have traditionally driven. Eight to nine miles an hour over the speed and it's not ten miles an hour of the statement. I don't remember saying that that's because I can get away with it that's the only reason I do it but with this with this Labor Day on this budget with this fourth of July weekend coming up. And so many people being on the road there -- a lot of warnings about driving drinking and driving driving drowsy. And a lot of people do that not just over the fourth of July weekend but far too often people dozed off behind the -- that is very dangerous. But also I read a report that two did the accidents related to speed. Are on the increase. And when I see people whipping in and out of traffic I mean going like really fast over -- -- the speed limit whipping it out. I sometimes think we don't maybe there's an emergency.
