Welcome back let's find out of the editing around so far that's -- TV -- -- hate hey there and okay are you worried that prevent the astronaut Bob that what's any -- -- enough.
-- jobs -- dominant that it certainly is not so I went down over the week went to my great uncles ninetieth birthday party.
I was just given the French legion of honor which is France's highest award apparently for his World War II service this is what he did.
Todd Goldberg was still in high school in the United States into World War II with -- -- to join the fight he dropped out his senior year landed on the beach in Normandy a few days after.
Serving with the eightieth and ninetieth infantry division he was engaged throughout the European theater of operations participating in the -- and Central Europe.
Northern France and -- campaigns.
Before returning home to Brooklyn on Christmas Day 1945.
But yeah I think it we make start he jokes and show cat videos.
Yeah so I think about even that is about it panic yet you're absolutely right whiskey.
-- -- my legion of honor.
Well yeah I don't -- I -- there apparently was yes.
-- I was accidentally rhetorical.
Saudi judo athlete I actually where it -- -- -- first -- guy in started every don't call it -- they call it zionist pinned up.
I don't know we're not.
Are appalled and did you come here for a brawny paper towel or.
Ordinarily that's where you're going with that yeah you're late getting -- -- that's what you're going with the -- I I understand it would've taken you about a half -- to -- that to me like three -- now exactly -- as -- like to -- it it was -- -- -- that's men's Wal-Mart what you're wearing.
He's really the and I did that yet you made a really stupid confident that.
Wow -- better than the party who that was awful.
Not -- used as long as this doesn't put her opponents at a disadvantage your fine with it.
Here's my concern and it's Greg sort of guys just mention as to what -- an opponent during -- match accidentally ripped off for Hedgecock now Greg you were concerned that the Saudi when would be killed.
I'm concerned they'll be a fatwa against her opponent not -- -- -- that could happen but I but -- but with.
-- they it they allowed to sort of grab for that part of it I -- -- and grab bag garment at that point maybe that that's part of the rules I don't know if we count on them.
Well a million ground you can do it okay to Grammy and he can -- grabbing like the back of the head I -- it looks like -- maybe that's not Univision look she doesn't want to be their best guy is ready at that point someone's gonna go like this -- he's gonna look.
And then pulled out and give up that's that's gonna -- -- a she's a woman what a thing wrong with you she's because she's completely ill equipped to fight against these people at this level because I needed maybe older -- people.
I'm not really a reason why now for everything -- I'm -- -- tonight.
Just making you're right it's right but -- -- -- -- -- reaches I Denish you brought up the fact that Saudi Arabia wouldn't have bowed to her wishes if she.
If she didn't want to Wear a head scarf.
Which is a good point could be one thing if you live in a free society and she sort of chose to follow those customs but it.
-- living in a country where she doesn't have a choice is that the Olympic spirit here is very good point why about it nothing I know that's why I got -- -- that's why second of the are absolutely.
Rebecca you said this is religious not political but isn't the same thing in Saudi Arabia they have religious police.
And as you know our government and it in Saudi Arabia about the Olympics are trying to separate the throughout trying -- and -- -- Every country -- Now yes that lovely.
Why -- I mean by doing that by doing that don't you legitimize government maybe shouldn't be legitimate I mean the Olympics are trying to separate politics and I think we're not getting involved in politics -- you have to -- why -- our legs are wet like this when I said that so it means it was a really good point yes but you are that he.
Anything we could just look at this as progress.
You know progress is very slowly winning -- have a woman in there -- she's wearing thing.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Up on Saudi Arabia you guys I rewind that happen to like their oil.
And I believe that sentiment makes me it equal when -- wall -- tattoo that uncle.
You're probably right what I don't under I don't understand how last week this was a dangerous situation -- to Wear it and as we don't know it's fun.
How does that work.
I don't know another rhetorical question that is well not really yeah.
The answer listening to it and ignore us skull cap rather scarf about it yet kind of cut that they probably adapted -- we're like gang colors at least he's gonna or some minor head -- lingered Yang and and -- like that.
Got to be great direct.
I -- So Chinese swimmer test negative for drugs degrades you know you purposely mispronounce Brian -- these game of the cannot know who -- is well because the thing is five.
If his family actually found out that I was the one setting those letters written in my own blood.
Weird you know -- should have been adamant to figure out what I lost track how many Twitter account to view open today you can tweet in various 647.
Is that obsessive -- weird.
I don't I think anything under 650 or find that as a general I hope he -- that tortured and it out of my discarded toenails.
-- can't see how we wouldn't.
Now took -- four months Annika.
Rebecca you said it if you don't test of the woman it -- if you don't test positive you can't really call it defamation.
Did that I say that I sent if you can't -- the why why the American cuts coming out saying anything like this why don't we just have.
Nice little Olympic area nice little side when he started saying things like that -- people come back that are actually work well it doesn't seem sportsman like -- Unless she she but it appears that she's not twelve appears she's not what we're gonna do hear -- -- merely saying these things simply if she has now positive drug -- thing.
He didn't see if we can do.
That you China in these games become like -- -- Russia in terms of they're doing really well all the sports and Richard now -- sensitive.
Implying that this drug use and we can't really afford to walk up and too much because the video the monitor.
I don't got that's entirely -- this was.
A unique situation just.
By how much he shattered the previous world record by so much yeah that I think it could just raise a lot of eyebrows -- I'm good actor that I like this the faster than Ryan -- view of the facets of it back to them elsewhere are accused of and if I don't feel like you're in the last -- this story for ten years and she really does have a body type that allows that to happen you know wait.
And haircut yes she did beat Ryan didn't see not not overall just in the the last leg of her last lag time or whatever they call it lap whatever segment.
And the last thing that ever was less -- what you have any -- -- last fifty meters and it was -- I think his last -- right but not be over I don't think -- overall time now know the last fifty laughter when you're the most higher than what he poured on and actually swim.
Yeah he did you know what if they haven't found drugs that.
I think the real story is the Chinese haven't.
Older -- they don't give any thought that I would.
Now and they never really amazing video -- -- don't get anybody in an advantage doping with them is like ducks thought she can ask for every night and again a I have no idea what that means it doesn't mean anything.
It means a lot insightful and funny but -- -- tested negative with our audience.
I asked him that was good you hack.
It's been bill you said quote I could have killed her in the sport of Olympics.
The rules for that sport -- I think that's reason number 500 Q why should be a commentator with the click on NBC fabulous you're gonna be worth it and then.
And she -- good.
A big deal with the matter however -- -- I'd watch that and guess what I'm not watching tonight but I watched that.
Greg you seem to endorse all the athletes taking performance enhancing drugs because you say would make the competition better.
I miss the days when athletes looked and acted like Babe Ruth.
Yes it -- hot dogs -- and you'll be -- -- a close win.
But you can have bolt because you've never -- a guy -- a lot of steroids usually stop acting stupid now big oversized arms Bobbitt -- -- things.
These could be our next.
That's that would save attacks or car and that's what I thought of us it was collapsing appointments if everybody's all have everybody will be.
Yes you know parents strength the premiere -- -- And this -- -- his body ideally -- I think you you just allowed I think you should not be allowed to train for the Olympics.
To -- and everybody doesn't.
I -- you just you show up and it you know you you do your best and.
And if you win you win but you haven't you don't spend your whole life learning how to jump three times in a row or swim fifty meters you save you save a lot of money and you go -- have a good time.
We -- shortly compete and everybody does that and then it's just fun I think could really all we don't feel like it could be us.
You might frustrate people at home movies and go and I can do that I do that I can do that that's -- -- Your audience when you're performing.
Well I don't it's like people at -- saying 3 in the morning this guy's got to show why not let me.
This show you plead every morning to be -- -- Also this idea how many emails did you get from call this morning.
Not just one text I'll just want to accept that yeah votes which I did not respond -- again you're socially I just I just put them into a separate file of things will never open -- you have.
What did you public about socially.
Retarded yeah he's at mentally handicapped a month you let me get everyone you text is that way and your response the only one -- knows how to work this thing.
Die on I don't know I think you're perfectly nice text with a picture Ryan watched the DeWitt -- -- what you are -- over -- -- nether region.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I decided I guerrilla I don't leading up Bill Clinton agreement not I am not very different -- I do think they.
That the reporters it is whether it's presidents or athletes or whatever it I don't understand no one ever stopped accepting movies.
No one ever stops to answer those quite as they're getting up when they say.
Thank you blood pressure and they start walking off everyone starts shouting more questions but the good he's leaving that my bosses heard me say mister president visits that were held there and not I've got the code off -- -- go back to the office -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I'm gonna place to respond to that I like what I like you know I want.
That are blowing our guys back guys when have people talking doesn't -- I like but he did what he did but I also think he did have to apologize because he -- the traveling Press Secretary and he's got to meet -- relationships of these guys yeah but I like what he did that to the guys you know how do you think you make a marriage work just -- you apologize doesn't mean that we believe it's.
I think oh yeah sorry I didn't I just last week Paul you said this -- until -- he squares a holy place it's night's historic place but it's not -- Both fairly unknown soldier and he said he said it's a beliefs I think this I had all of this is a -- -- or things that -- and I was it was a crime -- -- -- -- and that and I'm making a really good point we're doing this with an eye on.
You're not you're just not compact Nokia I -- -- that was his quote.
That was -- quote.
Are you done I think we are done OK I'll see him.
Later maybe coming up president.
