Isn't -- a you regret asking me if I regret about of course I -- And I -- -- my one regret is that I'm not at this moment promoting my book guilty.
Some title liberal victims and their attack on a little -- liberal victims are the biggest bullies -- -- Look no one would referred to two.
A Down's syndrome child on someone with an actual mental handicap.
By saying retard -- do you think the words in missile idiot moron right creek and come from these are all technical terms that one's on.
Retard has been used colloquial lead to just -- -- loser -- thirty years but don't -- these these aggressive victims have to come out and told what.
Weren't giving you may think that it's liberal totalitarianism that does dictating that you can't -- -- -- you know John Franklin Stephens.
Who is a member of the Special Olympics he's an athlete he's -- an adult who has Down syndrome says that he -- invited you to join him.
To see the Special Olympics he said that.
In Europe he's your friend he hasn't made yet but he hopes he can and he says that you -- understand what that life is a wonderful gift and that.
-- John need to be told it is I was talking to joke about Special Olympics the way our president did by the way.
You don't want to -- said in my tweet and joke about Special Olympics as a joke about downs on.
No I would calls some with Down syndrome so hard.

It was calling the president -- -- You're not.
This is not a left right issue this not a liberal or conservative issue.

Despite our constituents regular appeals.
To her meaning you -- compassion and are they proposing I I used treatments as well -- proposing ordered to -- but I -- we welcome an open invitation for her -- you to be invited.
Occasionally my education on you know what has -- police on how I can use moron idiot -- none -- us.
Well I I think there are certainly doesn't make much sense and they are just.
We don't -- our -- carry and an arbitrary and which weren't there and which weren't -- -- -- -- to work in other words have -- some of the sting like there's certain words -- and I just you didn't turn it affects the sort of -- on race you know that there -- certain words that are not a right to use for African Americans right now -- get into my book yeah well -- through this you -- drives -- crazy when -- you wouldn't use the N word through.
And it is just -- even on -- -- would you.
I'm answering now you keep saying would you would you.
Every time liberals start being the word police they always say you wouldn't use the N word.
Know the cameras it's in his own category I have a whole chapter on my current book.
-- liberal did not -- from the seventies don't I don't you're not black that's should've called my book guilty.
You're not black if you talent in slavery you brought here and slaves slaves for hundreds of years.
Discriminated against by democratic policies of Jim -- Now police and what what people say that but yes black people can't but I black but that -- zodiac.
How about people who are disadvantaged say -- you can't use the don't say you can't use your real into black to say you can't using your -- -- with disabilities -- -- -- -- -- or any weren't it is unkind.
To someone who has an actual handicap mental or physical I would not do that but that was -- really did its -- -- through a lot of feel they're being authoritarian.
Or the people who -- people with disabilities feel the Cuban sold down since they -- you -- -- and I know what had been an.
And the entire several other thing Olympic and -- the other thing about liberal victims they always claim like the Jersey girls to speak on behalf.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- No I do not I will not offensive -- cannot be bullet wound design on an Albanian an old they're not offended there is happening is they could be the -- jump on their high horses.
And go around you aren't debate on this Juan -- And and I and I'm a lot even consider discussing this anymore until I find out whether treatment in a missile immediate and more -- okay you cannot explain to me why those words are OK but not restart -- -- -- sickened five words.
Out of the English language now I think people -- Can -- -- preposterous as it.
And if in addition of John Franklin -- you got a letter.
I'm John well he is being unhappy if -- yeah hello all -- handled the if you got a letter.
He's an ambassador for the U -- say the fourth -- by a thousand people.
Who are dissonance this.
Three who signed your people and they were disabled and sign it would you then say -- I've IC and now offended people I regret not.
I attacked bullet the last liberal human shields the Jersey girls.

Did you notice any quiver and apologize for that no I do says the only event and one person mentally but at the number of people -- -- this is offensive to was -- Your -- and my -- but but you're not the arbiter that.

Trying to be the architect you're the ones and it's not offensive -- you're being ironic he's endorsing you can't say that don't I can't Illini music -- went -- using and workable again.
Black is different yeah you couldn't you -- processor and tell us and actually isn't -- such a good example the more just.
Is the word negro which was never used as an epithet.
And in fact the Supreme Court opinions used non negro until the de -- good Marshall volumes as the other and where it is much more offensive but that's not the putts.
And it was actually respectable.
Upper middle class wealthy blacks who were being denounced by not like the black Panthers as negroes was like uncle Tom type -- And that's why many opera crossed.
On lawyers and doctors who are black insistent on being cold negroes.
That's more something where it's a gray area and yeah I say I say blacks can boss us around a lot but the feminists are not black illegal immigrants are not black.
On this and those -- -- disadvantage women are not.
The disabled American -- out into the spokesman I.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- As answered my question on insulin treatment more on an -- Well then don't take it under Connecticut re election which is only want another consideration right now but I want answered those person who wrote the letter by the -- has Down syndrome who would like you have a meeting.
To talk about this will you be willing to do that I'm just might answer you consider.
Cancer on treatment moron idiot and in the -- they've been and to your quick before you'll agree county -- -- explanation.
I think you have you ever been wrong of anything.
Molina Vick and they are releasing more and you are -- people.
And creating some -- to -- because -- never tweet I'm not insulting the president I am a Republican.
And created a huge issue on TV and cool unappetizing.
Uncle but they aren't bullies.
Seen my book you'll love this -- getting publicity -- not I want public sick and I'm very aware that -- I -- you've got a book unlike a lot -- but my lungs as -- is that it's totally -- down hosts and MSNBC and other interest on PCs to -- into an honest -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- just -- -- they inaugurated the season on racial demagoguery my bookings come guys in the first week making fun and MSNBC and now they make a peep about it now all I did what you think Chris Matthews the only liberal.
-- -- is traveling about race with -- straddling about it.
Well let's say prevalent of late -- -- there was a new one tonight that was racist I was just -- out the door and you have to watch is reads like.
It was just a race bullying extravagant -- -- Let me ask you about that and holders are against and this plays into your book.
Donald Trump today as you well know -- And a unique.
Says he would like to see Obama's school records and he will offer five million dollars and if indeed.
That record is forth coming along with passport information is that not racist to say the black president.
Only -- -- the schools because he's black and we want to see the records that was under because there might be something there that we don't really understand what they did this tool like you don't like president you don't think there's racism behind trumps a claim that is not his real birth certificate or be.
His school transcripts need to be seen and I verify that he got to school for a -- that's not -- quick.
Points one is -- totally -- dot com for doing this to distract from you typical Obama campaign move -- unsealing sealed divorce strikers which is you know Gloria Allred is doing.
Might wanna move that aside movement -- And -- wouldn't -- know what's racist is our our race based affirmative action programs which this country and you're not only how -- that we have to.
Pretend they don't exist yes and point three yes I think a -- is a Smart man.
I can think.
It's preposterous to say that he was not held by -- Biden being black in his own autobiography talked about being an occidental to this school it's not Columbia University smoking -- the hold on to -- Answers that I want to party was head of the Harvard review that's not hastily grades view is that he was not -- -- and -- you know they'll.
And the audience he went and now it's the weather is based on grades and I know Larry it's rising and is that because.
And that he did this this is his fault they got the Nobel.
But it's not in a liberal within this because -- well yeah.
-- -- -- but he did I do that -- quite -- do what you reported my real question which is behind this.
Push to -- -- birth certificate information or transcript information you don't see that's a racist effort that -- really I think behind us I think.
Racial quotas and college admissions is what I think about -- I'm talking about Donald and yes when have we ever simply get your.
Isn't the information that -- only get into these schools because he's black.
We want to see the -- gives to verify that it was his race the garnish part of -- like part of it because people -- I don't think I racists -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- for -- college admissions to give a bonus on the basis -- race.
Race spectacle after the president is -- purposely not being transparent to hide something like I've got -- because he's black.
-- by the way I think you're -- I prefer I really don't know why you're -- and -- -- And making good because I think my answer is much stronger -- -- -- What do they -- there is what I think they're really looking Fuller is losing you know -- publisher said that he was.
He was from Kenya.
And you know those rumors out there and because there's always an -- traveler but point is why would -- say he's ten and applying to Harvard -- -- If you want to know what the point of skid that's what the vote is I -- always made fun birthers I attacked them in my last book demonic.
And -- -- to make -- -- Donald -- Well I ones on here I think the night it was -- and as birthday thing is not -- comes kooky right.
Meaning and he's he shot it down on given credit for that by getting out long form.
By -- they believe the long for -- so that's not real it's a forgery but the point is it's pretty much that was a very fringe staying on the right Donald Trump is still going -- and it had nothing to do with -- is is Donald Trump and I absolutely nothing.
A child is still going on and I long for not being real this is that is real loose on that you know he's not an amount that was standing or else already you don't think trams got this truly is the continuing to stay the -- -- the -- -- you're afraid to go after trump or.
I'm on the floor but I actually -- this because I'm so ticks off that the Obama campaign is going back in use and technique on on things.
Just you know -- Well -- campaigns not doing my lawyer and I -- Iowa and I can't think what we're having.
Divorce is put under seal.
The -- -- doing an immediate can just go on to say it might be something interesting Gloria already is not the problem and I'm doing mr.
defender of of and it's a lot -- liberal and I'm I'm I'm disabled children.
On the way Obama -- he was senator was first they -- -- -- strikers of his primary on -- hall was definitely going to we have.
On -- and ugly things get out.
N.'s Jack Ryan an incredibly attractive Republican totally would have and I was Obama's fault that -- gonna do nothing to run according to New York time no information and it's all in my book guilty -- -- -- guilty of a -- and the -- and driving one last point here at the records unsealed Jack -- with enforceable out of the race.
-- custody records and both Jack Ryan and his acts like didn't even unsealed because -- song has lost his.
And David Axelrod the Obama campaign and a judge in California said screwing you.
We think that might be something interesting -- -- we don't care if it -- your artistic so how about you online deliberately set now aren't you so.
How well the -- about hypocrisy of being a family values candidate.
And having that stuff come out -- a -- it doesn't bother you don't think that's the sheer hypocrisy of these rightly -- -- this year.
