My veins run.
Randall a little static out why he's he's a middle.
Emotional Paul Ryan getting a hero's welcome in his hometown this weekend.
But not everyone is greeting the congressman with open arms there has been some pretty blunt reaction from some.
Two his being named on the GOP ticket including.
Some -- the left like hip hop mogul Russell Simmons who treated out Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan the two men who will destroy our people.
And that's just -- example of the bitterness coming from some in the entertainment industry here now Bradley and who's the former deputy assistant to president George W.
And Dick -- -- and chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party.
They will destroy our people let's just -- up.
Got out there will be the end of the republic as we know it.
I don't know what he actually believes that -- you in this deck or or whether he's just trying to make a point because you read his whole piece he's talking about the poor.
And he's going on about how he thinks he's too rich guys -- one rich guy -- one guy who wants that you know reform the budget.
Are going to destroy the -- is back going to be the narrative going forward.
I don't think so and again I think we put too much weight on -- -- -- so called celebrities comments.
Whether it's Russell Simmons on the left or.
About Ted Nugent on the right to.
Called the president United States a piece of do do I cleaned it up and said he had a machine gun that he wanted Obama to sock on.
Now that's offensive to me but you know he's an idiot.
I'm not saying Russell Simmons is an idiot but -- Hyperbole on both sides ridiculously that's some serious problems facing this country we don't need -- -- hyperbole and hoopla on -- side now.
Brad how defendant may -- Russell Simmons if you'll defend Ted scrapped that cat scratch fever Nugent.
Brad let me -- -- No I hope I'm not gonna defend -- act because I I think there's nothing more irrelevant.
Then an ill informed quote unquote celebrity when this guy talks about his people.
What people -- -- get in his Rolls Royce drive outside his mansion in Bel Air California.
And -- with his people the fact that -- -- -- let you finish your -- about -- where Russell Simmons is reported to be worth over 340 million dollars to step by yeah.
His people are hurting -- and in the Obama economy than anybody else the inner cities and minorities are double the national.
Average in unemployment.
There unemployment benefits have run out that's why the president seeks to strip workfare from welfare to continue this reliance on government so.
Celebrity's pick -- whether Democrats or Republicans.
Are aren't noise and nothing more they don't move the needle and they don't convince people either before against someone.
Is that true because you know he's a powerful guy in the entertainment industry he and it if you read the whole PC goes on to say in part -- I will fight to stop a literal destruction -- poor people in this country speaking -- -- -- he says you will eliminate every program we have that protects the most vulnerable.
You are two men who will destroy our people and laugh all the way to the bank with your rich friends I mean.
He does he wasn't in the mood for some group that believes this is truly and -- as you went up there are some of the right to believe that Barack Obama is determined determined.
To ruin an America.
But this is this is -- -- that emerges.
I mean I think first of all he's got 340 million dollars a -- if you watch in this.
Go right and Allison are Coke brought the size check to priorities USA get off the dime quit line and spend the money maybe he had fifty million dollars.
Get get not not I haven't heard that give fifty million dollars to priorities and put your money where your mouth is.
Okay did we make lemonade at eleven stack.
Up tight -- around for years.
You know I know you tell me Brad whether this kind of thing has an impact because you know forty years ago -- Sarah Palin was nominated.
Or announced even as as the vice presidential candidate the celebrities came out in droves and started ripping on her and the list goes on -- -- about those two.
Were really really.
Harsh on her joy they are suggested she reminded her with some of the lot and -- and that's just one example that comes in my.
-- people who listen or can it be alienating.
To those independent voters.
I think you can have a very minimal effect but but the proof is in the putting I've -- never seen.
Are reliable poll by any reliable source that -- a celebrity had a positive or negative effect on the outcome of election.
They do get print and and they and they make sensational statements as we've seen.
In this celebrities we've mentioned here at the end of the day they have this year a fact now they fact they do have is it raising money.
The Democrats have that have fabulous opportunity and raising money from their Hollywood friends.
But at the end of the day that money doesn't translate into a vote.
For them specifically it helps the democratic coffers it helps the candidates' coffers and really nothing more than that.
-- guys interesting debate thank you so much as always.
