Clock joining us now to talk more about a couple of scandals that are rocking heck you could say it's rocking the administration.
-- -- not -- -- -- -- It didn't that the president is being -- -- -- say.
Doctor -- tableau it is Wednesday company Wednesday free health care on that day and he's bringing us some doctor keep Babylon -- here.
They are invincible couple things going on.
You've got the GSA scandal.
And the the rap video.
Which does that they like to party.
-- government services administration absolutely and spend our money doing it and then you have the Secret Service agents down in Columbia.
With reported now 21.
I don't I don't know.
-- friends friends -- stopped by their hotel rooms.
Allegedly of these eleven agents and five military members.
Debate just not care what we think.
Do they not care I think the first of all when you.
There's the psychology that when you're on a trip out of the country or a way it does to some extent dis inhibit you.
His okay -- this is just the fact I'm not suggesting it's wise.
But people for some reason feel like well on the way all the structural things that define me at home no longer apply -- citrus -- there are always a way.
But there always -- way and as to whether there ever not on the clock I'd go back to their paychecks are they paid 24/7 portal.
Because that's the data that apply.
I'm saying look at their paychecks are they paid 24/7 portal to portal or aren't that because otherwise it goes to whether they ever signed and I assume they do right.
Some kind of behavior code we will not -- Larry the United States.
-- -- clearance if you haven't extramarital affair for instance because you can be -- and that can be used think you know took to heart of the president.
They haven't they won't -- -- more if you haven't but nonetheless yeah.
I -- -- all -- perimeter.
They're all these parameters so if they violated those then of course you take action based on that.
There's all -- this is like you know from you know Freud once said if you understand like depression because general psychiatry.
This is like Utica and -- in almost everything because there's so many issues here one is prostitution.
And the fact that men.
Many many men millions of American men avail themselves of escorts in this country it's not.
In general prosecuted they consider themselves to be -- decent people I guess they go to work -- families and yet we lock up.
Some people for it we find people for it we gotta make a decision -- we legalizing restaurant -- because it's just it's kind of unattractive to me.
That like law makers some.
People who will be lawmakers people who were police officers higher.
Prostitutes in large numbers and yet we're content to have these laws on the book you know I wish I -- get him off the books because otherwise we.
It up to something else that and I understand that two consenting adults -- two consenting adults.
But when you have a large group of number that I have a large number of people in a foreign country.
And you don't have ID checking I think and I'm not saying it happened in this case.
It is a growing grounds towards sex trafficking.
Absolutely because in those countries you tend to see younger and younger and younger girls and women in that trade.
And it may get -- all sorts of things which we are definitely sure about in this country we don't want.
And maybe prostitution is on the fence children and prostitution -- not on the fence will.
We're not on the fence about that we shouldn't be on the fence about that but again we get into all of these issues right so one is.
-- can you beer the -- terrible irony that millions of American men and some women.
Avail themselves of the services.
And yet it's against the law.
Same with drug laws we get a look at that too because it's unattractive to have many many congressmen and senators who have done cocaine and are content to lock people up for doing cocaine is bad karma.
It makes as it makes us look like -- to face we have to fix that we have to decide what will.
You mean wait a minute wait a minute didn't this president -- and one of his yeah I think the audacity of hope I can't remember which that he did you initiate it that he.
I would agree one.
100% of doctors saying I think we should be criminalized things that are victimless crimes because let's remember at the same time the police resources are being CNN -- line.
You're you're now the candidate for reelection -- agree with -- I don't agree with everything the president says but you know when I would -- center for me is.
We're actually having police -- law enforcement officials are spending -- resources money time chasing down people smoking happen joint in their basement and we could be home after real credit.
As we know these are businesses not the government's business what people place in their bodies -- what they do with their bodies it never was.
Is -- our business if these Secret Service agents who were on advance before the president got there two days before.
-- happens -- -- artists they should all be fired immediately raised should be gone all right the president hasn't had any idea.
My out of.
Okay so how can the president -- go to professor gets locked out of his house in Cambridge mass and say this is like a national disgrace OK and not call for the firing of these folks because he looks insane.
Speaking -- You look a little utterly -- but the real consensus Saint John well I think back at me I think firing the actual -- -- what he has said that I don't know I think companies that benefit turn -- the president here is the president.
And -- and I being period.
-- may be angry yet that's it yeah.
Count me head -- -- somebody in the corner office who's trustworthy and embraces all citizenry.
Can't believe yeah in the exactly what it was and -- in the blue light -- after the rule of law not just blue blob of black professors he gets locked there I was a little all of us and white guys in black guys I -- Asian lovely men and women along parts of the rule of law works in the way you find the evidence for doesn't like to commenting on a great deal.
Please ask -- -- my act and I got the residents that staying.
Commenting on cases that are local.
Jurisdiction criminal cases or not even criminal obviously his -- -- on you know and now this one with a kid who Florida was killed and Holler okay Charles Rangel says it's nice son would look like I.
Tonight he's realistic you have -- a prostitute.
Charles resettle iChat aim it doctor Q a despite this one thing -- I like a supporter now of so yeah apple.
Think the addictive behavior.
-- serotonin kick in when people engage in this kind of behavior that these agents are accused -- that's all for jury -- -- life.
-- Look I think yes I mean is there an addictive quality to the release that comes with being anonymous and engaging in highly erotic activities -- I can be like a drug.
And it's funny but people the -- -- and do you personalize those experiences they never think of it as well am I really.
You know weighing in a negative way in this woman's life is this going to be something that she looks back on that I wouldn't want to be part of so really what's required here is free agency.
We've got to get to point we're say look if you're eighteen and you can go to war sign up to be in the military certainly you can make the decision.
-- to get naked with somebody.
Like other than that is -- -- you -- let's get alleged this whole thing came out because somebody didn't wanna pay the bill.
Well that's that would make anyone angry would make me angry and.
