So we'll get to.
CIA director John Brennan in a moment but first.
You know is on Twitter.
A -- name Mumia Abu Jamal.
You know he's not on Twitter Daniel Faulkner -- that nobody special just the cop that Mumia Abu Jamal shot dead.
So thanks to the skewed priorities of our cool cool culture a thug is a cause celeb a victim forgotten.
Google Daniel Faulkner you get a 193000.
Hits Google -- you get one point two million including some really thoughtful black and white photos.
He's so delightfully dreads he writes poetry I bet he's a tender lover.
Surely take only an hour to find out how guilty -- is but why when you have Mike -- ambassador prince while -- on weeping on his behalf.
And now we have the new Mumia documentary out everywhere which is about -- -- an Italian cruise liner of -- Valentine to a thug.
Who mass murder as martyrdom it's out now to the gratifying -- white prods everywhere who hope that the dangerous cool of a murderer rubs off on their vapid lives.
-- is global warming in a prison jumpsuit cocktail conversation for -- Even -- that these tools crusade for gun control as a defender cop killer screw -- I beg you stop following celebs -- glom on to vacuous -- Crusades that elevate thugs but they -- a cops life just be cool instead Biden murdered by -- at the book by the victim's wife.
Maureen Faulkner she could use the money and the next time you see someone in his shirt proclaiming free Mumia slap that book across their forehead.
The -- the closest they get to real knowledge ever.
Anyway you interestingly enough Bob while we were while I was writing that there's another cop killer on the loose Christopher Warner.
Who's running around LA and their people -- Twitter supporting him what is it Andrea.
With people who who who wrote -- evil at the expense of good.
I have no idea and I have no idea while these people would make it cop killer into a hero.
What are the most egregious things I think that they did with with Mumia was too much and PR offered him a talk show from prisons.
I mean -- we really want to hear what he has to say elevating him to that position now it never really happened that.
You know it it's it's mind boggling that they pick the killer over the hero to glorify in something like this even -- it though.
For for years -- with this -- me it seems like he'll never go away music commencement speaker dean effort to -- American colleges to more than.
You so inspiring yes.
A I really don't I've never really understood the celebrity piece of and following people because they are good at acting or because there.
Four but whatever they have done and then getting this huge bombing it's -- totally foreign to me yeah I mean -- and it and sure it is to you -- who listens to you.
Yet that is going to -- but I I like it I like that she and that wrote the book that the the victims and wife wrote the book.
That she had a chance to say something and that -- giving people a chance for alternative because I bet you that 99%.
Of his followers probably have no idea what is it what.
But this is the issue -- if you go online you you'll get a million and a half hits.
About -- -- you won't see much about the -- Nobody actually don't take them yet he's got yet so that nobody goes so now he's got the documentary there's -- documentary about the police officer.
They didn't they are probably was sometime over the last you know 1520 years from norm -- remembers that they remember -- -- there and a whole bunch of Hollywood celebrities saying it free Mumia.
Thankfully he hasn't been freed in probably won't get free day it comes of these.
These hearings all the time and won't be.
Interestingly though Greg I didn't hear that -- -- -- this Christopher Horner that the kill the cop and shot two of the people in LA is that the big manhunt going on.
There are people supporting him -- got like what you'd be anarchist he could because he said he was against.
The government he's yeah against the LA -- what is not against.
Piers Morgan -- fed appears Morgan could puts a period of organic I have no why idea.
Well he he was a former LA police officer right right that's for military -- in the light at the end -- -- floor in California.
I have to do those trees that line here.
Back in the eighties when I was completely.
I think I may have signed -- petitions are pretty woman who.
Hillary I would let me move me it was a pill and I tried it.
Are you saying that you're just a little bit out of it now.
Well a lot marine units and I was.
And I could really get it at -- Well anyway.
The point is it that that was a big -- -- and -- a good opportunity the it was thirty years she's been ready.
He's a prolific writer he says -- these -- cancer of the greater breakfast.
And I don't.
I think the evidence is fairly overwhelming I did see one thing about somebody confessed it.
Kelly the killing and and than Greg shut that down before restarted by saying the guy's dead.
So I guess I get -- -- hang my head on his.
Brother said that there was a confession of killer but the person confessed was already dead -- -- and and for some reason the brother waited twenty years to give the confession so there's no way you could follow up on it.
-- and the coincidence that -- would be there are wild police officer is fighting with his brother and shoot -- like how did that happen at the end of the same place the same time just by pure coincidence in Philadelphia makes no sense to me whatsoever.
He's guilty -- There was a radio show with this guy -- they did a lot get out of jail at.
Their -- on Twitter you don't get -- I -- I didn't have more power lull and then we all put.
That is great is the crime for murdering an obvious -- -- gets upset media -- -- a penalty from -- it was he gets doses that it was reversed.
By the I think it was -- -- for the -- probably because the jury selection was not done -- something that they didn't excuse the crime -- we've been given life in prison.
I wonder he has more listeners than me on the rate it -- look at -- -- government -- really a minute ago yes it actually has a street named after him in Paris.
Figures but it yet it's Iran and he's an al-Qaeda and Iran actually visited him in jail he did that's all you I'm not joking when he was prime minister odd that your -- and afterwards but he visited people like that exit makes America look -- -- what makes us look like -- of the abusers if you visit.
I quote political prisoner where somebody murdered and -- do you think it is these celebrities can hear like thirty years that's the fentanyl -- -- Washington yet.
Let alone attitude segued right into our next topic.
Anchored plaguing governor and oh yes I guess you're pushing this along.
Rock press conference on guns yesterday I believe we have dogs -- I believe that it the most interesting commentary was from Chris Rock god we have the quote.
I am just here to support.
President of the United States.
President that is states is.
You know our boss.
There's also you know the president and the First Lady are kinda like the mom and the dad of the country.
And when your dad says some illicit.
There -- you know it usually by -- And later.
Things that knows I -- if Chris Rock is correct and the president is our boss and our father.
Isn't that by that logic bush was also our boss and our father and Clinton and Clinton as your boss and your father yet so weird I have -- possibly more -- to -- I do dress up like about begs begs the question if Hillary Clinton is president.
She's that she's our mom let me pick that mommy and your mom my hair and if she's your mama because they get it right -- -- guys.
-- -- get me in trouble but do you think he would agree that that bush was your father of course not he just likes Obama.
But let anyone of my cat and mouse I mean there's been -- the big at this complex thing going on and hated his father.
Or something like that it mother or whatever it is.
What it's a Bob's question on why they come to Washington the ticket -- people do listen to them we just like when we started with -- that you think.
People do want to hear what.
People that they've watched on television or in movies that they respect and the funny thing for me is whenever I hear Chris Rock comes waiting for the punch line yet at making heated -- about -- -- but that was kind of funny baby that was yeah that might have been the -- -- translate into.
I am mom and dad it's a very strange view of the American government.
You try to get a lower voice and I I don't see it I guess finger at president -- -- -- -- -- for people -- -- in favor of gun control but.
I still don't know if it is anybody got any qualitative risk positive -- this converts -- anything like well.
-- earned media until you know all the entertainment magazines the same when the candidate Obama always says during the campaign -- their supporters.
Their fans over into this effort to -- well I'm gun control I don't know but certainly for President Obama remember one of the things we talked about was how much he did all the popular media rather than talking to the white house press corps.
Or whoever else happened to be there of course Stoxx six minutes but if he did all of those things music -- why is he just going on the -- and The Daily Show and not.
-- talk and other reporters well.
It worked and hit her -- and I think that.
-- at their constituency in order to keep.
The momentum that they think they have going on gun control somebody like Chris Rock talking about it -- all of us talking about it keeps it going for another few days at least.
We'll -- well Tony Bennett also had something to say at do we have that as well.
It's a kind of -- that happened to the great country of Germany.
Where Nazis came over and created tragic things.
And they had to be told off.
And if we continue.
This kind of violence and accept that in our country.
The rest of the world's gonna.
Really take care of us in a very bad way.
Eric do you follow that that if we don't have got to go over there it is -- -- can really won't pay for the what -- just waiting to -- it was a little.
-- -- -- -- What why did they do this being in elections I see why they did because if you like -- a presidential candidate -- -- form if that Chris Rock like some.
But -- different the difference here with the gun control discussion.
This test to come up to about this is gonna hit it that we've been saying here and Dana and then the rest has -- -- here that.
The senate Democrats can't.
Bringing this to the floor they can't vote on this because the ones that are have been supported by the NRA.
The ones who have been elected because of their stance on the Second Amendment can't raise their hand and say I'm for more.
Gun control it just can't it has been.
Right about that I think they're gonna bring out the whole bill and those Democrats -- -- vote for members to kill the ban on assault weapons and go for the the bid at this cycle access to Decker -- I think they wanna get on record -- I think they're not opposed to the -- there -- -- Walking it back on I think they're walking this back is Cuomo's numbers here in New York have dipped fifteen points that's why Obama released the picture of him.
Shooting -- I want to comment -- that wasn't the most egregious thing that Tony Bennett said he actually said we should be more like Canada.
And because they react better they don't go around shooting people when they -- -- movies and that he says if you don't agree with me.
Your ignorant so thanks Tony for being intolerant but he's also I want to comment on what Chris Rock said.
Obama Girl our -- he was elected by -- to serve the people and I think that's where.
Not just these celebrities -- -- but I think the administration has it backward I mean you ask any of these celebrity's what if the president.
Would've put 32 executive orders on the First Amendment.
There would be many him if he did it or.
Maybe amendment that they yes throw their arms around like they were doing at that press conference.
The point and let's end on a good point yeah are.
