Wolf -- got -- stocks that should never been there number one.
There is more than I think there's about two days when they realized that he had done this in 2002 in 2004.
Apologies don't matter I mean that -- would he apologize about calling someone fat or something and so we want American troops.
Their families their wives and their kids to die and -- of being pulled back.
-- know apologize for that you're a bad person get him out of the way to.
Do you get a hole -- he said -- -- Bradshaw I guess got to the rest result just don't show up next the president that's on us.
All right so they once rapped about killing American troops and their families and now South Korean superstar side.
It's to hang out with President Obama has being a map -- nearly a billion YouTube views since July.
But now he's under fire for this -- surface from a decade ago with these lyrics.
-- those blank yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives kill those playing yankees who ordered them to torture.
Kill other daughters mothers daughters in law and fathers.
Kill them all slowly.
So despite these -- -- outrageous lyrics President Obama is seen laughing during a -- performance in Washington DC last night even shaking hands at the now controversial artist.
On Friday -- apologized for his offensive -- saying.
While I'm grateful for the freedom to express oneself -- learned there are limits to what language is appropriate.
And I'm deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted I -- well I will forever be sorry.
For any pain I have caused anyone by those sports you talk congressman Jason -- it's joins us.
Jason -- I think a lot of people across America were surprising they've heard this song they've seen it on.
All the videos -- that in a billion YouTube views of many people have seen it.
Got all gone on the football field and then all of a sudden you find out that while he had a very different past and what anybody would have thought today.
Well what's troubling about what President Obama did is he gave this guy an audience with the president of the United States.
For somebody is advocating the killing the death.
Although Americans and their family members and I -- say I was just out on the USS Eisenhower.
These people put their lives on the line.
And and you go why do you say we should be killing these people that -- to a different wobble that the White House had a choice they didn't there was no consequence for that these comments.
They didn't dismiss them from the program.
What the president actually standing up for our service men and women insignia but that's not acceptable you do owe an apology and you don't get to go to the concert.
But that's not what happened that's what's so worrisome.
-- I can understand why people are very upset about this I did think it's important that.
Yeah it was ten years ago it was famous song that he wrote he was performing another person song.
And at that time in 2002 in 2003 you'll remember the South Korean people where Barry angry at America about on the situation that it happened in Iraq that was.
That involved a South Korean.
Do you think though that when he apologizes.
Is that enough.
Before it's due to vote -- we -- either candidate that chance to perform at the annual Christmas in Washington show.
-- there should be a consequence to this he didn't do -- once he did it twice.
It was at a protest rally against Americans and now that supposedly you know he's popular on YouTube and everybody's got to see -- dancing around -- do it all that.
Doesn't mean you get an audience with the president of the United States in one of our most celebrated holidays.
He shouldn't even beyond that he should be on the no fly list for what he did for goodness sake let alone meeting -- the president of the United States.
I hate it just doesn't make says it's offensive to the servicemen and women.
Their families and their loved ones who -- out there in harm's way to put this punk.
Out there with the president of the United States it one of our most celebrated holidays it's just wrong.
If he has had any big hit like a true change a part of it got the apology from the publicist.
I wonder if having -- chance now to have this wild success.
And especially in particular in America.
If maybe he has changed his thoughts about what America stands for because that's why I think people are so offended.
By the comments originally that.
America's as a great wonderful nation of we help save.
Korea South Korea we gave you the chance to be who you are today I wonder if is gonna change his mind at all.
Well -- -- a personal local but he does so we're very.
-- you know work country they get for gives people but how about the message to the men and women of this country I want our commander in chief.
To have a zero tolerance attitude to say I'm standing up for you first and foremost not some -- from South Korea who's gonna go a lot advocating the death of your children.
And your wives.
And that's what the president needs to do it that's the message that he should be sending to the world not trying to go out of protect this -- so that he can have more YouTube hits.
That's that's -- that's not -- your priorities right.
It's a pretty good point I want to ask you may be bigger picture question which is that for the last several years.
There's -- this integration between entertainment Hollywood.
And politics and you guys have a lot on your plate there and Washington but it seems that we can't get away from the Hollywood -- of the presidency.
Well in that that's one of the worries is that the president is more concerned about.
-- appearing with celebrities in being liked by celebrities as opposed to may be sitting down with Republicans or even Democrats.
Talking about maybe some of the lofty things that are out there they're gonna affect every Americans life -- like the fiscal cliff that some -- the other.
Big major things that are out there and that's.
They look every president's got obligations and parts of his job and duties that he asked to do it and you know that firsthand.
But -- and that we don't need to put this -- up there.
-- -- -- until about the top of the newscast when we got so many other things but the president does this to us.
And these are presidential decisions and I don't think he's very well served by his staff that that puts him in these positions.
As a really great point and we are gonna continue to talk about all of things that you have on your plate we're really grateful that you join us tonight thank you so much.
