Joins us on this Monday morning as he does every Monday morning he's -- -- on the phone from Palm Beach after a very successful.
You congratulations -- on the WGC Cadillac championship yesterday at Doral it was fantastic.
It was tiger was basic and it's great guy by the way have really great guy but he but -- -- that this golf than.
It is very good for my asset -- -- protested that now going to be essentially blown up were building the lives do incredible course there it.
It's been it's been really so that Democrats would -- just it will -- record setting up and we had a great case.
Straight whether fantastic let's bring it back to the White House because so much -- made last week about the fact that the White House to -- Were being shut down affecting a lot of kids quite frankly because of sequester.
But then there was music came out over the weekend that beyoncé -- -- Dell will still be going to the White House to celebrate Michelle Obama's fiftieth birthday.
The White House is saying that that is not true do you see any sort of a conflict of interest here.
Well there has become.
You know -- -- -- -- -- -- that this is what's going on with what you that.
I'm not only talking about the -- everybody at that Christina -- it like it we actually have a dysfunctional government.
They beat everybody basically get -- -- nothing ever comes doesn't mean it's by the way they go play golf together which.
I actually it was a great idea when that myself -- bitter split with the -- but that they care about is that.
I think jumped out of anything edit the return of our nation is going to -- -- -- But let's can we talk about this a little bit.
Senator Coburn who was in that dinner with President Obama last week said that there's at least 200 billion dollars 200 billion dollars per year.
Of wasteful spending -- of of duplication of regulation etc.
that could be saved.
Why in the world with the White House choose the -- the White House tours.
Which we all know what it cost them a heck of a lot of money to open -- fact I've offered to pay for a week you've offered to -- pony up some money for it why would they do that.
Well I guess just Politico they what I -- the people they wanna do something to -- their point they wanna do something to -- their opinion get things.
Going even if it's going the wrong way you know a lot of things are being talked about that -- bad.
And if you look at what's going on I guess that just tried to make a political point.
It's just really ridiculous I don't think it to be you know frankly it's it's but it does it does make it look awfully bad -- -- pathetic.
Well and by the fact that the White House is turned off the tour is it just makes him look.
Petty and mean I'm you dilute Newt Gingrich had this tweet I don't know if you saw this but he wrote.
That's you should offer to pay for the White House stewards he can afford -- and it would show who cares more for American students.
What do you think about that suggestion.
Well I think it's so nice of Newt just suggest that I don't know anything about it and I had a yard out for the first time.
You know I -- I liked it a lot -- -- members of bike club is that it's really lovely wife and members of my club but watching it.
And I love all of by baboons.
And it did happen to be a great book and delighted to hear this but it does reasonable debate why not.
Well let us know if you are gonna follow Eric -- he's in -- to pay for a week and I don't know the numbers and they're very good and bad water and there's -- numbers updates ABC news centers around 181000 dollars we looked and we went down we dug deep they're about thirty Secret Service and personnel.
That guard the White House during the -- they get paid fifty bucks an hour they work eight -- shifts it comes about 74 grand.
Per week Donald I threw in a week Kennedy -- -- throwing a week we've had other people say I don't have seven program but I get 25 bucks to take to the aggregate some.
Here's the point -- People Americans want the White House -- don't we want the White House opened for tours for the kids so that -- season all of learn history symbolic funeral charts.
Well it's always been that simple and it's always been opened and it's certainly not a lot of money and you know that the big thing is that the country is going to lose.
Essentially lose a trillion balances here.
We have seventy tree hit it that close in -- as tourist is not exactly the because they thought.
It and I think that's the bigger story here you know -- -- they discussed that the biggest issues which are the entitlements and and the real spending here.
I say nobody should donate any money to keep it open because the -- should fall.
On what they're doing with regard to closing at four.
-- money compared to the amount of money they're spending in general let's move -- -- ambassador Susan Rice because of course she was controversial with regard to -- -- -- situation in those talking points on the Sunday talk shows -- now it appears -- be the top contender to become the next national security advisor do you have any thoughts on that -- We'll let the -- that he really likes he really does like he wants or someplace and I guess that's his prerogative whether we like it or not you want the electorate that's.
It says that may -- be happy about it.
And you know I -- the Republicans that they do whatever they can't but they -- to what they don't.
It received -- I'm a Republican but the Republicans -- it to divert it negotiated.
They don't get their way they have the filibuster I I happen -- -- disagree with -- very good read Derek.
I happen to feel that the -- filibustered did not think they got nothing out of it that was truly epic -- by it but.
It was just to protest that you know we -- what that threat was.
Well but we -- action it did highlight it did highlight the fact that the that's what the senate floors therefore you have an issue your senator.
-- and do it do it anyway in the but it didn't get out of bread and it didn't stop the -- it.
No that's right but you know you know what I don't know which is what it shouldn't really the purpose should've been -- that.
Right and and it was a foregone conclusion everybody knew that you know he's gonna get confirmed what she did.
But what Rand Paul was asking for he was asking for clarification because the administration's get these secret policies regarding drones and the simply sit.
Can an American citizen be killed on American soil.
With the weaponized drone within -- twelve hours after he was done Eric Holder pumped out a memo.
No so in that respect -- I don't get.
But everybody knew everybody knew that memo was essentially what was going to happen anyway and you know many of the Republicans that is that you have friends with better Republican -- they would not happy with the developed you know that -- you know there's two sides to that.
Absolutely yeah absolutely committed to an end and almost got a bit and learn the things that -- people from sitting in my -- say they can't we can't we you know I can't.
The Republicans get themselves together.
Where they coalesce behind one.
Person or one group or one ideology -- that the splitting is it's not helpful to anyone on the right.
Well the amazing thing to me is the Republicans have so much power and they just don't seem to be able to use -- they don't use it properly yet.
You know that don't deal from strength that negotiated the right well they really are there at a great negotiating position and yet they just not using it I have ever seen anything like it.
It's other negotiating or messaging one and one of the two -- both and other things.
Speaking of singling people out C -- Is coming up which is the conservative action council I believe and you're going to be speaking there although some of the Republicans were not invited to speak there.
What message do you hope to bring to the conservatives there.
Well -- somebody that really is very good on something called jobs -- getting the economy working and are you going to and that's what we're going to be talking about it and -- look at China look at.
Brazil I look at these countries doing so well we're doing so badly so I look forward to being there was a great honor to be -- -- -- -- Friday I believe.
And I really look forward to pick great people to expect people are great people and you know they believe -- something you know what it is working yeah.
Good point nothing wrong with that whenever I had to say that anymore they believe it working and -- -- this country great.
Speaking of working and not working and fired some -- I don't I have yesterday I went to bed before you -- and find out we've fired -- starting to watch.
The apprentice last night celebrity all star princess last night I'm -- -- agreement prompter.
Well let's take too much.
-- -- -- -- -- You never quitting your life I'm -- But in Washington fight.
Much different than I would have thought -- get fired.
I'm not shocked because last week Brett Michaels you governor Brett boy and -- Dee -- to two solid play.
Right now is a great guy it's so spread by the way he's a great guy and he.
Do it himself there was that disparity did something that would there was just their defense so it was that this will not be controversial but he is a great guy that has.
You know before that though -- we didn't show is you actually fired Penn Gillette for a second and then you sit up but he just didn't.
It's is better but what's -- -- the shape they step over the it's just that like you know.
Yesterday data rerun of the apprentice from seven -- nine yeah and then they had from nine until eleven of the apprentice so that's four hours and then -- a golf tournament don't -- five hours before that allows us and yet we have got to directed I think it was a night hours.
