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?

A -- campaign that is designed to challenge the idea that women's beauty determines their overall value. The campaign has called stop the beauty madness. And it really brings up an interesting idea which occasionally comes up the founder is a Robin writes. As she said that the main mission. Is to say that if women are worried about their weight worried about their looks to the point where they're not actually putting themselves out in the world. They were missing out on some really extraordinary individuals. And some really important conversations. We need to be having. And it's. It made me wonder. Do you not consider. Being with somebody. Because. Of their figure. Do you not consider being with somebody because state. They don't feed your expectations. And there are a lot of wonderful people that don't have perfect bodies. I mean incredible personalities wonderful people. And I think a lot of people shut those people out of their lives but I wonder if they shut them out of their life or don't consider having them disappears departure. Because. Of how you feel about that person or because of what you think others would think of view. If you with that person. And it made me think about how often we applied. What others might think of us. When we pick somebody that we date. Or marry. Or hang out. How sad is that if you were ordered deserted island. And you were alone with this one person. There would be no peer pressure. So he wouldn't care what the person look like. And you would be with that person because of the person. So I hope you've made it to a point. In your life where. Looks. Really don't determine exactly who you're with. And that there are a lot of really incredible people that some people might wanna be width because of their personality because of their intelligence.

You know I remember I think we're sick and at TGI Fridays when rivers in the bottom of that -- -- three or four store office three or four story office building. On veterans highway. Between a probable cause way. I remember I think that's the first place I ever had potato skins. It was like the good news chic thing dipped to eat it I guess it was back in -- in the mid eighties. And I remember that. For some reason I always remember that Kenny boardwalk. Of the -- was always there -- win or lose Kenny board -- would be there right after the game. And it was -- was a big thing I think my brother Winston manager -- for for many years in to this day I'd still get people coming -- to -- your brother miles was manager when I worked at Friday's.

Fox News contributor doctor Q&A blow somebody that I occasionally talked about on the show because I respect discuss. And I I quite often talk about some of the op Ed article city writes for foxnews.com. Would doctor -- blow was on fox inference this morning. And he said that a new California law it replaces the words husband and wife with a spouse. Is considered a milestone on the journey towards full equality when it comes to marriage but he says this could lead to people marrying. They're dogs. Doctor atlas said there's no way the state of California can deny a marriage license to four spouses. Eight spouses. Or I would say three human spouses and it canine they absolutely love. Because if love is the foundation of marriage. They can love their dog to. I -- I thought this idea that same sex marriage would lead to people marrying their dogs. I thought that was something that was really reserved for the ignorant. The doctor rebel is not ignorant but this is one of the most ignorant things. I've heard him say and it's one of the most ridiculous arguments that anybody can say I mean if you wanna oppose same sex marriage. You have a right to be opposed to same sex marriage in this country. But. My gosh don't. Come up with something stupid like well if if this is allowed and people can narrator talks. I don't can't give consent. You were talking about two consenting adults when it -- to -- six mergers is why I'm just amazed that anybody would bring up this idea.

Just thought. -- something to think about -- due to the point we can marry dogs what dog would you -- number three tonight's list of the top eight at eight. The other night I got off the air and time I mean to stop before it got to my apartment and I was eyes watching this guy. Who's playing video poker. And I realized that it didn't really seem like he was playing anything. It seemed like he was totally obsessed with pushing the buttons as fast as he could to get another hand. He went with -- whatever didn't the machine suggested that you hold but then he immediately pushed the putt as fast as he could. I saw him go up 200 credits -- one point. Then got enough. That he put more money in the video poker machine. And he would get up and then back down again I mean at one point he did cash out I don't know how much money he cashed out. And I have no idea what he spent in the process of getting to that point but it really made me think about. Why -- we call it playing video poker. If you're totally obsessed with it if you're as an appearance on the I'm not it and I'm not a gambler. It doesn't mean I haven't gambled at times in my life and I'm one of those guys who could easily walk away after at least a couple of blocks I'm on dot. But some people can't walk away. So what I'd like to know tonight is if you're gambler. Why you why are you or why were you -- why do you think people or so attracted to something like video poker. To the point where they sit there and play it in what appears to be some kind of zombie state of mind. And again. I'm hard pressed to use the word play video poker 'cause it doesn't look like much of a game. It doesn't look like they're really playing. And if you're gamble. What advice do you give people. When it comes to walking away. And -- gamblers who really think that they're going to at some point recoup all of there losses. I'm not being critical just it would have gambling in this city we have casinos we have video poker -- almost everywhere. And around the country eaters there's -- So I wanted to have a conversation about this this is not criticism of gamblers. But I'd like to understand a little more about what makes somebody so obsessed. With gambling. And it's not a gambler I don't want this to seem like a lecturer and I'm being critical. But I just right when I saw this guy playing and being critical this guy. It just didn't seem like it was much find it seem like it was kind of a business to him. And maybe it is a mean you can can you be able to the point where you actually make enough money to where it's it's it's fun but it's also it's also profitable. Table talk about this on the -- might have if you gamble I would love to hear what goes through your mind when you get to the -- -- say OK I'm done. And even though I've lost something I'm walking away. Or if you -- The human instinct is to keep on gambling with that money down let's get more. -- the and you end up losing it.

Number two on tonight's list of the top eight at eight. And I did during a dog with the team built. -- New Orleans is back in the national news. All of the national news outlets have been carrying the story about a former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin being sentenced to ten years in federal prison for his conviction on corruption charges. What's your reaction to it and -- sentencing. Was it too long. Was it too short. And you also -- our our news we've got the full story on our website WW dot com. I'm a former governor Edward efforts went to oak dale spent some time at I guess that is just one of those camp said at a place of Dave pudding greens. I really should have looked this up I -- he said prisons bad because it separates you from from everything that you. The -- love. And the people that you love but he said it's at low security prison and there's no could be fences send the wire a top balls. But he he does say that it's it's prison it's it's not a place for violent offenders so it's not the worst place you can go but its still prison time I believe William Jefferson. Is in oak dale that's that's a suggestion from the judge don't know if he's gonna end up there but it Nagin could be out in eight and a half years says that's my understanding. And that's a lot less of a sentence than prosecutors -- many people are expecting somewhere between fifteen and twenty years. So what's your reaction to the the sentencing of Ray Nagin endorsed of people at the courthouse. When lawyers for the prosecution were speaking after the verdict was rendered. After the sentencing was -- -- there were people who were tried to shout down those who were talking -- wanted to deficit that as a technique that some people use. They just they just shout things they just they they wanted to announce what you say because they don't agree with what you're saying so they don't even wanna give you a chance to say it. And I I see that technique used by a lot of people that I'd I'd really don't think. -- Understand freedom of speech I mean there's a way to disagree with something but it just try to stifle somebody.

And the president just kind of smiled and laughed and it turned away. Obviously didn't excepted but if the president -- smoked -- in Colorado and it's legal in Colorado. Is there anything. Wrong with that. The president has been criticized by members of both parties for not visiting the US border. Where there's a humanitarian crisis that continues with thousands of children crossing into the United States. Both sides are using innocent children to play politics. And I think it's up to us the citizens to reject the use of children. In what is a high stakes game politics. But can we resist taking sides. The -- like tonight's this title should President Obama.

Russert talking about the sentencing of Ray Nagin and today -- gambling will get into that -- victim later in the show if you do have a college because at any time.

Semi literate and made talkies in double negative all the time and I was sort of off the pitch in the fact that. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Hitters in the city in he would take vacation of the city's -- -- -- -- both parties which in the fact that they were blockers which had nothing do with it whatsoever. Well -- it's unfortunate that there are people who will be. Supportive of somebody. Because of their skin color and there are people who will oppose somebody because of their skin color.

Think you can get out in a half years if he behaves a service interest and immediately go to prison and you're giving good time off for good behavior. I would think that what you go to prison you do you kind of realize that excuse me that EU should be behaving. And at that point you would do nothing but behave in a very good manner he's apparently gonna go 20 deal Louisiana where former governor Edwin Edwards was. This is so low security prison but as they were says its its still prison it's not too rough it's not for violent offenders but its still prison. -- we're also were talking about whether or not President Obama should visit the US border where the humanitarian crisis continues. The president has been. Already ours our campaign swing for four race fundraising for a democratic candidates. NEC and in Texas in Dallas.
