Jonathan -- right let's continue what we've been talking about today and now we've got new segment -- as you know bias fashion it's probably something -- look forward to.
With Jonathan but today we are talking about a topic I think you'll probably get a little fired up about.
Because it's got about a guy who really likes to get fired up about Alec Baldwin.
Alec Baldwin going prime time -- and asked NBC.
As a host of this Friday night 10 PM eastern time show.
Let's talk about this a good move for MSNBC they're gonna get some attention as a result Justin dot com joins us and he is a senior Washington correspondent.
For talk radio news service good morning Justin thanks so much for being here.
I let me get your reaction to deaths -- Alec Baldwin joining MSNBC.
Well it makes sense you know we know that MSNBC is the liberal network and they know what side their bread is buttered on however it's.
Absolutely irresponsible to be giving this kind of -- -- to somebody who's shown that there.
You know sexist homophobic.
And prone to fits of rage and that does not somebody that you really want to have any position of influence especially when he hasn't really been repentant about any of it.
Yet let's let's talk a little bit about or remind our viewers of some of these comments he made.
I in Florida after the trade on -- verdict at and I can't even use the words but he said that the verdict was asked to opt.
Simply because he didn't like the way that the jury decided that.
I'm ready he had referred two -- British journalist as a toxic little.
Queen which is homophobic.
-- think that a lot of gay rights groups would come out against Alec Baldwin being on MSNBC.
Just a result of that comment alone what was there any backlash -- there's also got.
There was no real backlash and instead we saw him give one of the most disingenuous -- of all time.
He came out and said that he didn't mean to be homophobic by using the word queen.
And that that was the word that he did not have any association with homosexuality in his -- unfortunately for mr.
That doesn't quite fly that is a word that is deeply ingrained in that and that is a very clear -- solar.
And so and -- didn't -- idea why his excuse.
You know this you do have bought it you know we know that glad Clinton's apology did it -- because of -- I mean I must be.
We know that if any conservative posted on this it was actually -- conservatives use language like this in pretty play full tones and whatnot or maybe just pleasantly.
And in this situation he was using it in the context of pure hate.
He was telling us Twitter followers to chase down this reporter calling the -- little queen.
And encouraging mob violence plays and hopeful that language tonight and that it is absolutely offensive I mean and this is like -- -- -- style stuff you can't really get.
Any more shocking -- that's.
Right and remember what happened amount -- and as a result at least at that time that he had made some some comments.
A lot of our viewers will remember that's when he -- in his daughter he called her a rude thoughtless little paging and voicemail message which is that one of those cool things that you could -- your child.
Let's let alone the somebody you love.
Back to 981998.
He said that he would like to stone Henry Hyde.
Two deaths from participating in the Clinton impeachment proceedings and got a temporary likes to run off his -- And that's NBC's going to be get some some attention and some press as a result of us.
But is -- the kind of press that they that they watts.
What we haven't seen the show yet we're not sure he's gonna -- down I wouldn't be surprised if he does but this is something that.
Is actually shocking and just unforgivable the fact that he called his daughter a rude little pig at the very least that inside of you know being a pretty questionable -- And the worst -- flat out sexist that's not language that you used against a woman or a girl especially not your own daughter.
So I I just don't understand why he is able to get a free pass with this -- anybody else that uses language would have had to have gone through a Bob -- like -- of therapy.
You know I wonder -- they're gonna do this show -- a live show or they'll do it -- shall I have to think with his schedule that they would accommodate him and that MSNBC executives are gonna.
Take this thing.
Does that that they -- not -- centrists are made exactly that may be within their best interest.
Because I think -- he's -- -- live show too much can go wrong and doing live television.
As easy it has as a come -- you have to be really willing to you have to be very nimble.
And that's something that he'd may not like the constraints of doing a live television show where -- having to listen to others to -- -- the producers and take direction from other people I'm just not sure how that would go over with that personality of this.
Exactly and when he goes off he goes off -- deep and full heartedly.
This is not like you know just a little slip up we see we have seen long ethnic rants from him both on Twitter and voice -- messages.
And that would not be a good thing for anybody to see on there.
OK -- we're getting -- some comments from some of our viewers this morning Joyce he'd be right said he won't last and that job.
After all MSNBC we'll try to make him stay with they want he'll go off it won't work but the channel we'll get attention for a little while.
Can't get that are seven that's I think I think that's pretty much sums it up.
As a pretty fair assessment you know this is a clear grabbed her group for ratings.
And it's always good to go on the ball when there are a lot of Hollywood celebrities weren't sure had equally you know liberal views as Baldwin.
But we're not prone to these crazy manic episodes I -- I just sort of shooting themselves in the you don't have.
-- kind of a fun one to watch would be.
Oh what's his name's.
The space is named for a second I have does all the oh darn nevermind I'll remember it and that's a puppet that statement made that Matt Damon that's the name I was trying to take out what it -- one -- You know I'll watch it purely because we have not seen him call his daughter a rude little pig and a and -- a -- celebrity doesn't do that you're better than -- Baldwin.
Yeah -- -- you like to see Gary Sinise lieutenant Dan would that be fun to have organized.
He's a good actor and friendly guy so yeah that -- he's done so much for our wounded warriors.
OK -- we're gonna have to leave it there thank you so much -- -- dot dot com he's a senior Washington correspondent.
For top radio news service just and thank you so much.
