McMillan New York Post found out that you know strip clubs liquor stores and gambling -- -- that we use in the court and there.
That's not good well.
ATM machine across -- -- -- machine when I went to doesn't work so we are ironically -- the strip club.
But you can assume that a person withdrawn money from an ATM machine -- spending and at a strip club.
I don't know I don't know if you can assume -- but why would you go into a strip club.
When area ATM machines everywhere well when you go to I don't condone I mean c'mon temporary out of service they couldn't tell all politically you have -- -- -- -- -- for somebody to embassies and also to -- -- the -- So you might you would you wouldn't want to go to one that's two dolphins but the sense you try to find the -- -- one do you think.
Really seriously think somebody's a walk into a strip club just because they wanna get some.
Of their welfare benefits and then walked out I mean come -- well I I I'm a former stripper.
And I -- you are former chairman stripper here in the United States or some other country in the United States and being a former stripper GAAP and on the hunt of a sentence recruits are -- -- recipient well let.
That you're telling -- -- stripper is a welfare recipients don't you get paid if they are they they need that money and go because they have someone babysitting their children so do when they get off from work they may have to get money from that machine.
Let me get this straight but you get paid to -- brand new campaign but you're on welfare to -- I don't -- yes yes what do you do if you don't get paid enough.
The company -- thank you thank you so much -- -- benefit you need to do this is something that will run at a -- government State of New York last year yeah and this with a part of my platform and edit any candidate getting what do you think its okay that it forward people to access.
This both both strippers and people watching this isn't based let's put a state legislative body to get up and talk about this matter record admitted they do help people on Wall Street -- businesses -- and top rally is on welfare.
Welcome -- federal how do you what do you call simple what are the what are called a garden so people are sent whom simple spin -- out of -- well yeah I mean what you wanna spend the money in the way the taxpayer is aligning it to you on rent and food.
He's not -- Entertainment gambling in liquor to -- -- do you abuse that is gonna do put a -- of governor as -- wanted to use that you're admitting that welfare is have you just been a huge Soviet need to be with.
-- -- -- I'm -- I'm glad so I think you -- Diana agree that this these before how big -- problem do you see at the Manhattan institute.
Of abusive welfare -- we just came off the thing rice and I wouldn't print the names of wealthier people but I would print the names of Wilford sheets.
People who get money from the public and then spend it on frivolous things narcotics or blues or whatever.
I think I think that's a horrible abuse of the taxpayer.
How prevalent is that.
Dire we well we have -- the eligibility.
Put food stands has been expanding rapidly we have about 47 million people on food stamps it expanded in 202.
To -- -- it expanded again.
The stimulus bill.
And so what we need to make sure -- that the benefits going to people who really do you have any idea idea on how much of the stuff is being used legitimately own religion is there any style that any stats on that.
We we do not have any good day don't know and I'm really happy if the dollar bet it is yeah.
But it is but we don't have -- -- don't know.
And you -- -- -- that is my problem my -- that this -- state should not who's goal by a media report without conducting their own Augusta tiger would you like.
And -- that just cannot assume.
And they are also human so.
I wouldn't leave it all until you conduct -- -- -- investigation deport you draw any assumption don't.
Why you're spending is -- why you get that -- to -- a script so we do need a law.
I don't know all know or really you know a little longer than not not red hot thanks to their group may not without a -- member of the guys will you find -- that is being abused and that we do you -- what are -- -- -- -- -- -- anyway this you know.
People do on social all of what you you -- Symbolic constitution he knows something totally do and -- a pass a law you have to use it for staples you can't use it -- -- -- happened and everybody.
Right so let's have the apple be held accountable again you -- -- -- -- much -- -- the got a -- -- -- -- -- away just have rules you -- when it is also very.
Agreed tempted it's very easy to be tempted if you get money out of the machine at the casino or the -- -- thought to spend that that.
And it's much easier to have a law that says you just cannot get it out and I think we should I think no I think I don't get very.
-- discussion -- my -- on the look of Islam taken aback by the revelation that you -- stripper at one time that I for a reason yet that was below 1950 -- -- -- -- -- are gonna have a -- ordered the government to a weekend -- he would have told -- my daughter -- -- -- -- it on the -- get my -- surgery.
