Got a book out now called.
-- like you -- the they have Mercedes you know you can't put this title of the book story Connecticut -- placement.
They actually -- -- -- -- in my element of anger it would gentlemen and women and that of the places on top shelf and you can't let the U squares is -- but it online the F word on them.
And that that the title came about because you know if you work Fox News and you you know that lets people -- People that they disagree with its out of the plug while -- -- limited and did I get treated only every minute of it -- gun blazing aren't so bad they came from that kind of grind the united what do you think we have a different title -- -- -- anyway for them to the publishers say you can't.
You know the public -- was you know was what was on board with him enterprising and I can say that.
Maybe they had a few misgivings but nothing you know nothing to see -- do you go by your initials.
Because when I was the key militants in my last name.
Cigarette it was it -- my name my name is Darrow is there Alain the nobody can ever say that says who literally you leave the -- -- -- -- that -- diseases -- a little cards wonderment that so -- logical and on and this is today you have to be here on chick filet appreciate right particularly.
Let us like Americans need excuse.
CE fit roots movement with the intent like we needed -- bet you'll never see broccoli appreciation day at a Manhattan and -- Carolina and I think is great and I hope conservatives eat all the -- for late night ahead -- and other light of -- and -- -- -- in the end.
Suddenly obamacare -- looks of Debra Messing it up and pull hook once had to -- a cardiologist and that was that -- that decently.
Yeah but I mean it's really amazing others has metastasized into -- at 600000.
People out her legal staff but he.
Missed you know I don't look there's a line -- underlying -- -- united nominee if they say 600 can't be at bay six six this horrible for me because this.
I love -- -- police and it's not about dying hacking is in his stance and yet you and I still an area and it and did nothing -- I love the -- I can't take this this game -- -- -- compromises.
I'll give particular about the book that's.
That's happily I just I think -- -- I think it obviously this man has a right to his beliefs you know in.
You have the right dean supporter Manhattan I think he's he's kind of crazy that.
That it becomes a statement.
That you -- comes and people -- let's get to work that would.
It's that that the red buses that anything I don't know if everybody actually gives big money again interrogator and -- -- also it is almost like he would be it would be.
I can I can take somebody having a different -- philosophical ideological.
I can't take and taking my money.
And then -- -- dissolving them adamantly opposed to slacking but I think I think he's evil that I can't eat the chicken.
And a -- left.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It is.
-- -- -- -- -- -- He pretty well anyway we both have value would -- -- a -- -- -- it's an you've got a lot going on this book I mean I guess everybody's talking about everything all the time.
Who are the particular people you want to shut up now.
Well I think more than anything.
We suffer from the disease -- served.
If you'll let that it is that we're gonna -- -- network if they they expels does this and it.
Were they so certain that if you believe him and follow what they say that this would be -- and I think that's a right wing thing I think that's what is right wing radio does but the left wing radio because.
This it is in the -- of certainly the black or white.
Everything's black and right there's no in between it and this is a way to do it in a Rush Limbaugh's first book was called the way things -- -- and you just follow along in Yemen makes life easier but obviously we head -- even the things that that -- clever people don't know left to it's it's like oh.
Go do this would go to war here -- make -- safe if we cut.
This year will will experience these if we -- this guy this will be it this way if we if we give more money here than.
The senate primary will rise -- we always so certain and we go wee bit.
The farm yeah we call ourselves a new you've heard about this the book that we had to put the best American -- -- which was in this country and that we integrators with the best country in God's reader at.
And you point out -- on a number of metrics.
Only 37 and health care where you know we're not.
When -- number one woman was the Olympics.
He -- got to drilling if it almost -- helped him before we.
Like in Macedonia so -- I think that it -- my love for this country and -- There are people who want to say you know obviously -- levels that's going to -- that every time you don't follow them right right now -- -- that's a very much and the idea of something like is that people look at access.
When you see what we become look at the -- we used to do that we don't and more like congress that they are based on -- -- -- in -- we -- -- about what -- Was the last time he went to a doctor.
And you can pronounce his name on it -- The last name or what I'm look oh my diagnosis of -- -- -- When is the last time you actually saw us excelling in something.
You know like.
We came from a generation of people.
Who won two wars that the world manufactured cinemanow -- Now we got FaceBook so we can like policy at rice can do it again and at.
When you say the doctors last name who would have thought -- have a president neighbor Iraq Hussein Obama right right and I think I think that the fact.
And I certainly when wanna paint it and about more breaststroke but I think that the fact that this president.
He's in a White House has driven some people to the brink of -- -- Pat -- of the patriot when they're people who went who stated position is they would -- -- -- -- -- that they would rather see this not to fall off a cliff so they can get back yeah.
Then two seats -- If you did a woman like it if you love a woman and -- wanted to you willfully participate in their dueling diets as you come back to you.
You wouldn't call it a page you don't have in common stock when you don't expect to beat.
And you get a restraining order that rely heavily on the street corner where it became -- what we make that analogy we spend all our money on being -- Like the bully we we want.
With a drunken -- we wanna sit can't wait for a chance to show how strongly on we sacrifice -- little or no provocation with no idea how to get out.
That's really sad and you know it if you look if you -- the Republican debates you know who's who will be tougher on Iran who's going to be that will strike them for.
I'll be tougher to lobby and -- my favorite with a Republican debate was not -- -- -- -- someone to host a debate you are now also holds a debate is like flavor of labels in the spelling it can't it.
It's funny even like this is a simple choice for -- night.
This is the one question I'd like to as you know why would -- round.
-- -- profited from the way things on and who has been around people who profited from the -- things want to change.
Why would -- be -- be necessary.
When -- seen no evidence in -- the immediate -- are in his life changed things aren't as bad as he claims they are to begin you get images you just point out they've got to claim that things are really Banda what president -- To that you bring it -- -- but things aren't as terrible and the stimulus maybe it didn't work as well as he would like -- fast.
But it did -- on the job to -- it Dee -- -- is it's almost like.
I think like somebody in the book -- address this.
And they said how could you know -- -- -- -- -- to mountain park which of the party were never mind you we never did -- it is like if you look on the left side.
-- -- Hav a Tampa lends a -- for gays no Tampa.
There's no -- not look at.
About it and we look at it that there was no and yet they embrace -- -- like Herman Cain -- -- -- Herman -- is a -- gonna listen and he's got that guy.
But by any standard he was not -- but he can be president -- so let's look at.
You did it in people I was at William because he's black -- you call -- -- I never call call upon.
-- -- -- all or her McKinney there of their viewpoints and if you haven't it was a one -- neighboring wise if you don't think like -- Only somebody who believes -- appeared you were believing you a -- But it had left right dichotomy to people and both sides do it you know -- -- you're dumber can agree many the other sites do absolutely.
That's in the and he tied to an end and you'll see that in the book.
I'm am I am.
Outcome for game there it's just against gay divorce things can I think -- you know the first leaders of any group have to have a guy and he had to go to.
The end stocking had to be assassinated -- and -- had a good deal.
The first one of them the due date the present at the statement is it's not it is that the -- you -- forgot about black leaders of black you know -- -- the black leaders of -- Martin Luther King mark of the king was a great man and a great time and call for he -- -- -- He believed he was a write -- at the right time and it was a turbulent time.
And he exactly the right steals it to -- you know knew would -- cost Jesse Jackson I believe had that same kind of -- it.
And was groomed and ready for things that happened.
That fight never get so imagine being groomed and ready for a fight that never -- and being do you do you know that you having seen great news.
You aspire to would you be willing to sacrifice of their -- never comes and abdomen you make an -- when you say in some leaders Leo the good leaders issues look for use opposed to a leader -- analyst -- the -- -- -- right.
-- I don't tell -- because usually I like this doesn't help us.
Just one little.
Number sign -- that to make sure you don't have that or bad word -- -- -- -- -- -- what do you believe.
Well let me pick up where we left -- analysts and it.
We are is -- a post racial America because -- Obama's.
Can anybody say it.
-- one of the problems in this country that we look for symbols he's a symbol of what we like to believe the polls for society yet but Ann and obviously we make great tremendous strides.
And in becoming the type of country that we believe -- statements of what's to come become the -- has ever inclusive -- country when that they and I think is like anything.
You can be really handy and there's always those last few pounds that can cause you the most grief and I think we in the last few -- Anderson -- of you you talk about your own child in this book under the age of ten.
You were walking while black right there and ten years old in her cup that you.
And a friend and put your hands and a lot -- -- -- Carla revving up the India had ten years old or any city if you move lovely.
Thing is unbelievable.
Listen I mean I'm not.
It's an experience that -- and obviously.
Eat it started to shape the way I see the world.
And think that things certainly are much different name is now than.
But I don't think you can have this kind of experiences and -- hand him imprint itself from the site.
Is comedy a way to make statements about these things for users is is this comedy the way in -- used to be able to addressing I would never and that and that -- -- never to.
-- -- To say when I see.
And so the things it can stand out the most I think that I kind of gravitate towards but so so it may not look like to make it make in the social -- it was actually.
The things I think the most met your mother and -- in an -- and if the amount of their loved best as moral Obama that much money but.
I think went like it's just I'll be somewhere like I was in North Carolina when they were voting his game management -- of the pastor in the island -- it will game manages day.
Gay marriage is it game in game six is that lesson that's a sin against god has -- this evidently some of them excellent glendening and agreed that we never.
Nancy can help and let's not I kind of let people know that certainly -- think everybody supposed to be a table there's that would attractiveness of the fact.
And if you -- of them basically -- -- get married because once you look at.
I think -- -- think that they're gonna think they can be miserable like aggressiveness that -- -- so the other issue and even talking about recently is the what happened in Colorado Brian this notion that we have more -- will be just.
Right will be floor or that or that or that if we take guns away will be yeah I think I you know I'm a wrote a blog.
Monday and ensco morning American ran up to post.
And I am again I have seven and has risen here in New York in nineteen -- and -- had on my own life -- I make no excuse about but why do you have to I have a couple of little properties and commodities well.
Do pardon me if about loses that who have seen the needed and -- I don't hunt and on the way for India to break him out of the -- why did you did Dick has run us through my iPod -- but there.
But it it they've always been -- a part.
I certainly don't.
Glorified them -- in the business that's put out public high capacity making magazine's art but.
My overall point is certainly not announcing -- regulating guns.
Will do much more.
-- and anything else that I think the most I think having high capacity magazines in the ability to some ways you have to place.
Killed thirty people or fifty people to view is wrong and should be taken away in a bison haven't but.
Also believe that we have to look at our.
Acceptance of mine we have very about it though the -- a year -- -- -- and -- -- and if we wanted to do something -- it -- -- that it -- that.
Pervasive and -- -- we.
I believe that we glorified.
Michael Bloomberg mayor of New York came out and said both the leaders of each party model running on the Republicans and Obama or being timid about this has in the big really should be coming out especially now after this tragedy this notion that we should be -- waiting period that for guns.
But for talking about it after -- Yeah but but they do is place along nobody wants to talk about purses is you know -- there's not the time in the -- but at times kind of -- -- Nobody can tell me it in all these places like the argument from the right es well if -- it would and again.
They wouldn't you know of course in -- smoky dark -- -- -- messages was unique but I -- argument -- some of -- some indignant.
I've been in Colorado has pretty active in laws air over or a lot lot of parts of an army boot yeah service at 2 o'clock and you gentlemen nobody -- -- Or in -- Arizona -- know what hit them and what happened -- days.
The -- the time when a guy she'd sit out with a guy with automatic weapon of the camp -- Is the movie you went to see.
It's not it's not -- cubs waited today do program.
Yeah I didn't shoot even.
And that we're calling -- gunned down and hail of bullets -- it is so he they wait no one is going to issue that was amended Democrat we're gonna we're gonna and that.
They're gonna duck and run like everybody else and I think that.
We have so many simplicity as a do we want a society that does better than to it came we do know better than did those people humans -- We -- because do you are you happy with Obama.
-- tell -- what I was I have had mixed results but -- -- they -- I'm always impressed by someone who does something really great.
And I fat we haven't seen a present in.
It is a piece of that station with this parade in the states are mountain home parks for a given mental health clearly yes I definitely I think welcoming after gay marriage which is Obama but that was I disagree I think -- he came off the game it after it.
-- before after an off the ballot didn't have to ignore him hadn't done it before -- one person is let.
Did Cheney coming -- -- it you know they're not oppose the game -- after he's not running the that he was really where you think Obama -- received an -- so.
And it permanently again I was ice he may turn -- some people don't want to think to a you know sickness that well yeah yeah he black churches even in -- you know he made but I thought it was -- it would have been braver.
Head to me that's just my opinion but I think.
Giving Americans the opportunity to have affordable health care.
Is as brave -- And that's the thing nobody ever takes.
A change it's you know what they'll take that -- to go to war.
Or to just take alive never to preserve them that's just kinda amazing to me it was the bravest thing I've ever seen if it's seen a political.
A major -- I figured.
And what's -- at the unity at the book out.
You -- it it is showtime special so president a reason it is doing really well and we also have -- a documentary to kind of sense of you know be out.
And it joining indecision 2000 to a -- -- -- the black -- put in the endangered species list.
I just testified -- EPA yeah India the EP in memory densities and what round dead if you look at the criteria for getting a -- put on the list -- virtually fit it would change it from a black -- to -- California spotted out -- interest by now we'd be on the -- its.
But it's just you know eight to.
A -- to people for him.
-- -- -- to gang members to neo Nazis to two good from the best of prison complex we put together I think it's going to be.
Very very funny in point very interesting and it's going to be and companies -- obviously tonight oversight and I'm really just.
I like to space them you know like where -- an amendment that.
A great look at the book it's called I want you to shut the F -- it's the audacity of audacity of jokes is running America.
A ruining America aren't gonna running into that got him to actually make it that they are expected to make it's brilliantly thanks demeanor maybe an agreement.
