Here's Tommy talker on WW LA MFM dot com clients oh we have a new mom. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson and everybody is gathered around it looks like. Piercing and we with a sense of on and nom resilience in the movies always looming. Winning pressures Owen Wilson Owen Wilson in when they are really Google interns. It's kind of a scene like that because everybody is hug in the real on a second floor and of lowers. First floors filled with people waiting to hear. From what Rex Tillerson houses today and at this point guess I would ask you. Right around the time. I get straight with when you use Rex and when you donate money right because not king or accidents wrecks just for a yet. Well what about Davis. Is if you say secretary wrecks aren't sane secretary king. Well. Can you work on forming. Talked to some or Mary and Ed do that. I'd never known that that was a job and yes it is thank you Chris let's get political now so I'm reading from a CNN article here. What do you believe it or not and now I mean you can believe I'm reading implement the continent but do you believe it or not. Omnia Australian prime minister saying the report that the president hung up is not to correct the call ended courteous sleep. Fires in nature of the discussion very frank and forthright I stand up for Australia's interest I make Australia's cases powerfully. And persuasively as I can wherever I am. You better believe these are two alpha males on the phone talking about. And down go to the CNN article here to try to keep this clear because it is a long. Circuitous. Narrative. So on November 13. Riders the election was winding up and President Obama knew that he was not going to be in Pollard John Kerry knew that he was not going to be. The secretary of state. They made this deal to take again these detainees. Most of whom far and away are from Iran. And then if you wanna go in it just drop so much from here I guess we can mention at the second largest would be. Contingent would be Afghanistan and thirdly Iraq. Pakistan's fourth there's also is reliant. State was any you know where they're from Bangladesh. Burma India Nepal Somalia Lebanon and even then others so. On November 13. John Kerry the State Department and President Obama cuts his deal for Australia. To house these immigrants. Most of whom arrived. In Australia by boat. 424. Rome 22288. Got there 'cause they overstayed their visas 67 came by air. I guess nine came legitimately by C. I don't know why the United States got involved in this deal to begin. If they landed in Australia and then Australia shipped in the not chip them but took him now. The surrounding small island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Then what does that have to do with the United States so anyway the State Department made the deal on November 13. Along with of up. The body of the United Nations. To bring these people to the country the United States Donald Trump finds out about this. And and at that point I guess he's weighing well weigh in and I got a ban on people from Iran. And by the way Iran says they're gonna continue to do what they damn well please. Mom as far as being put on notice. So. The does it it's just doesn't make any sense to me it's it's you know if they went to Australia why did the United States get involved if it's November 13. Well it's seen in May before the election. If there is your policy take a man now would clearly be a way to avoid any of this. Making news during the election and our question to you is. Do you think the United States needs to honor this deal that was made in the last days of the Obama administration. By John Kerry he of the long face Barack Obama and a segment. Of the UN. I wish I could've been briefer. But it's a long convoluted story that seems to me to reek of back rooms and etc. who. AJ you're under the WL. Well I'm dizzy after giving you the details of this. I don't know how the United States got involved in this and if somebody knows please call me and tell me. I thought that when it comes. You know vote that the president executive branch the power to negotiate. With foreign countries but you know to be ratified by the. Well and that's why congress wrote a letter. Saying wait a minute now and and does John Kerry confirmed the arrangement. With the UN eight CR the organization of the UN saying that the end United States was very engaged with UNHCR. And helping refugees there and other parts of the world. So it's it's a few. Well Cheryl there. Was ratified by the proper authority of congress it seems like a little more often. You know permanent if it was something that was initiated by the administration. Yeah the new administer an election. You know I don't there was no congress and even know about this like Garrett dollars and ratified by anybody. What then do it seems like it's the new administration's war art and I hadn't responding journalist with Ringo art Pollard and text or straight because I think that. The only didn't elect you I might jump in and put in and please sure. Well well that's. Click. He. Was elected I shouldn't that give the guy catching it earlier there. Yeah I agree. That. Some call it let them. If I can just jump in for a second your path to don't you think I don't think you have a choice because you hope that the president fails. And I'm like you with that of President Obama did not vote for him I did vote for a Donald Trump because I just couldn't imagine myself voting for Hillary and anything else seemed like a wasted vote. Mom but I guess in oh was anyway. On any other reason is I want to be able to tell people honestly that I voted for the man so they didn't think I was treating him unfairly. Well you have you know reasons. We went. People on both sides are still want to make inflammatory comments like. You know music to. Control. The moment. In a day now. Hopefully in specially with the appointment of the saudis Supreme Court justice this guy was being. Broad executive orders so let me tell you that. You know that may be. The presidential our little bit more practiced it China in world war. And instruments that in one out of it yeah. We're out. Here. And everything on Mars and thank you blow. Out. But the commitment. You're the executive order reverse executive orders and new level ministers. And placed special report. And party as well. You know. That. Are in an extreme to boast a continuance you'd make inflammatory remarks that's certainly. Any award. Well the puppet dictator. As a Christian. It well Castro said that that make it into. Christian. And I don't have any problem with you. Processing your story. But it certainly could crush this I. Across the post a moment. Guarantee that the government won't. Follow it. Can condone what religion the other. People can make them. Just don't do these aren't. My. Uncle and you know it doesn't and you wanted to kick out. Keep ticking. Well let me say this of spoilage goat is an egg at the break. A lot of these people have been and again picks is a little kids holding up signs that say third. Christmas in custody or whatever it is a countries that are holding them in camps and camps have some very bad. Reputations so here's an insane if you. Keep somebody from 120 days from coming in the country and they were borderline Moeller will be pretty ticked off when I finally getting here. And if you keep on minicamp for four years. Then maybe they bathed RO open the radicalization I guess when a mask in his is that the longer you keep boom. The more of a chance Ewing Kerr of them becoming dangerous and hurting somebody in the United States. While watching appointed economy when it comes archer and last you know it's staged there in other countries. United Nations what happens kit off. That their agenda. Saw these problems in the and in. Much and that's what oh you're either too cute joke was. In. It measures and stuff like that. It doesn't make things worse kicked them out. Are you bring in red sand. Wait you're breaking bad fan. I think you said half measures that was area. Pretty the central. Portion of a series of episodes that's one I was wondering what is again I think if you've been in New York you know of the day is that are all over the streets up and down the I think they'd some home grown meat needle some neat there's cigarettes you smoke or magazines coax waterway and yet. Is you know when your on Fifth Avenue monies business places they don't ham. 7-Eleven or something you want getting soft drink racetrack and every call. But they're closing today in protest a group of Yemeni business owners plan to shut down the Delhi's grocery stores in bodega is across New York City. In protest of Donald Trump's travel ban on people healing from seven Muslim majority countries including Yemen. Now. If you were to say that without that being true I think you might be guilty of a racist statement wouldn't it. If you said oh well I guess. In protest did this just in and in protest of Donald Trump's immigration policy. You won't be able find an open bodega in New York City. And I think it would be braces but yet. If a group of people choose to do it I guess maybe it's cultures opposed to racism and over the fact is that most of these are owned. By Yemeni. From Mike in Metairie good morning and other WL kind of calling. And one on the armed just. You back a little bit back to talking about sort of up in a trump and that's toward. And and not bad guys and clear enough. I didn't say the threat of it because that means that the wars to mean might be. Justify on saying is given notes state of the world factor at all in together. China with the islands in an idea that he built up in the south Tennessee only one of which is really. Weaponized if you will Iran with the missiles. Everything else going on in the world do you use saying. That the world conditions are such. Factoring in Donald Trump that we will be in a war within the first four years. Well I presses well getting to on an acrid United Center questioning by point. My point about the thing with the Australian guys from mean. Conditions as personal opinion. About the answer that old work that that question after talking about has to do with straw and if you go into the news to sing with the Austria. You know we look at the deal we're looking at to be also the Chileans. Australian agreed. It's taken some people so trump get upset. She is in losing anything. If I get in mine mine would be to Australia prime minister machines are equally to renege on it back out. And then you go back the summit in the congress and to hear about the conversation started. The conversations start with trump talking about it but Tory vote strong talking about and so keep contingent that and other situations. So it seemed. Wouldn't like me reasoned that this conversation when all fails. The policy was about the guy necessarily neck kissing trumps all sorts of means the dangers like to talk about without getting in the war. Isn't necessary about what's going on has to do with the man and kissing is behind lower. Being forced to honor a contract that he didn't negotiate he was not aren't great but it's bookmark. Is that true. But where's Australia's negotiation how we are the ones if anything with the break in oak ordered. So he's humorous to me it's anybody had a right to be upset it would be Austria. But if you believe you're fortunate and they'll go back to with the beginning of the conversation. While talking much torque while I feel like Jeanie who launched herself. To this the prime minister you don't hear me so it goes back in demand in my opinion and I think. Being you know what you believe. Personally that these and I think that's in the and I think the main thing so go back to question about all the situation on if he can't handle. A conversation with an ally. That doesn't go off the rails because the guy's been struck by how you can handle it when it's somebody that morning. It's an interesting point that you made an opening in the way you make it in my. I. Know. And no idea I think. Anderson which is saying your concern is that if with an ally like a history even though. It's a deal over 12150. People. That if and in the dollar strain prime ministers and he did did trump did not hang up on him I think for president. Any president to hang up on another leader for a country you know like an upset teenagers not right now things that should never happen. But I guess anyway bottom line do we honor the deal announced. It isn't like is that it was by adults in a political reason and then again talking about an apartment assumes politician a political reasons like. You know forms main thing about it it emerged now. Politically no I don't see the big deal but my concern is with the tone of the conversation going out the rails because it wasn't. Inch it would and the guy. Making trump feel good about. Oh wait I'm real quick I gotta go do we let a manner not. We take commercial. Or. High seas the other thing I think we got to remember thank you for the call was that we're not talking about. 12150 barrels of whole lower sacks of flour anything like that these 12150 human beings have been. Som. Detained. From loans for years now running into the back and re read because I forgot it how they got. To be there and for over it because the United States working with the UN commission and trying to help with immigrants and that's how the US got involved. With this flu and I just on the guys in the control room I was gonna get a king cake today do those celebrating because it was the weekend you know for the big game. My god yet to come to found today's there's Thursday. Its start celebrating early. Maybe. Depends on how long lines. But say it's 5 o'clock somewhere it's the weekend somewhere does not hold up its guests it's king cake to tell us homeland that's maybe. Could be. Liz and Graham and good morning thank you for calling you are on WW let me refresh everybody here if you just joined as. Some of the United States got involved with 12150. Immigrants that Australia has been paying to. Did neighboring island country's small countries to hollows. And on November in the third as it was late in the election. John Kerry along with this agency agreed to bring and Barack Obama to bring them to the United States. And Donald Trump a weekend phone calls with the Austrian prime minister was not very happy. About it now Australia's says that the United States is gonna honor of the deal old Donald Trump says he's gonna. Review. Hi what do you think Liz. I don't think I might want to thank you can. Really believe it turned need to be negotiated with the deal. By strong Heatley and renegotiated. That need to be negotiated and how will be. He. It refugees will be seeking an arc and ending it on the top hundred people could drop in the black. By I believe me in the old block content is right here I'll be coveted. I think carp really need it you know Twitter. An act like apartment apparently it would mean negotiate a country. Initially executive order without it accidentally. I honestly think tank. Now now are you talking only about the it did abandon the UV because a rollout on that was tough with the you know and a lot of people known about it although they're trying to say they did now. Am officials on talking about in May be the rules not exactly clear for example if you get a green card. Well they said you can't you couldn't command and now they're saying you can. The Maghreb and seats. The are available on all of that that you can't issue an order should not I think I can enter our plan actually in pretty. Should you know where he got to. Act in a while in someone's like kids you know any you know he picked them up. Albany is he simply our country what it. They are usage and meet me in. Be aware of the axle. Other people's religion is not everyone and then I'll look at them and you know. That car turn better. Argument that country. You know have. Really. Sony knows well in terms I don't like the ball in the air. But in terms of late the there will be in the paint. But but yeah you can't say those countries have clean hands when it comes to terrorism do you think. Not clean hands but if you bought and go on to prevent and treat it like I Arabia Egypt Lebanon and anchor it although I think they need me cabinet and they are well. And any if you don't do that we have a great respect and I didn't do it out of pop like bill Paula it previously in eagle yeah. Bit crazy right now. You don't think Barack Obama had a huge egos he hears that thing when people talk about. A narcissistic. And Nam did he concede it would seal of raising used if you add that level of politics if you don't think. Let me take long story today I had to take at one point a multi Spacek. Personality. Test. And it questions for somebody that. Reforms are entertained and every one a college for a living in or goers and non leadership position in politics of it and view. They need a different test because of urine gauging this is somebody that works and office or at a job goes on. And just in Iraq's primarily with their family the results are going to be biased I think you have to have. Narcissistic tendencies. In order to get to where you have to be da doo BA senator. Or representative you name do you think that. If they would need to work with other well this is surely won't be. You can't you know and hot knife and elegant met him you amassing over Mexico. There's one point three million dollar and the one point three million signatures and like it had more action and lead the cool. You're in the act of our mind you met with Qaeda and team all the people come together. And you know are convinced that they feel like you know I wouldn't want people better. Is better only little hang on do you think you're messing with Iran. You know I'm I'm paying. The now we're not happy with the band. Without and act in you know it is to keep poking the bear it out and let it let happen kind of content it got kind of quiet. People get going Hannity and bill congress are not met with the Olympic thing there. About Hillary's and sadly is as you know Iran yesterday James Flynn. National security advisor maybe director guy loses title and Michael Flynn yeah. Mom goes goes in front before from Sean Spicer and the daily press briefing in says. That Iran is numb. Now mum on the quote in front of me Manning a senior moment here help me out there on its. Edited. On notice he put Iran on notice that's what it was and. I mean you did David did their tried their testing missiles that they have no purpose other than delivering a nuclear warhead. So. I mean you can't let things go Kenya. I believe. You handle being in the evening without eating on Colin hitting on Twitter and on it definitely will be a better way to go. Point in time for me and I think that on it. Work out and you have to do it. Or not you know we have we have our work. And all who live on the I'm. Saying I am I don't wanna go on when it may not an airport. Tonight I gotta go listen lady called oh we gave you enough time it was about five minutes. Matthew McConaughey hey says it's time for Hollywood to embrace.

Punxsutawney Phil the official groundhog did. Which means six more weeks of winter and I guess here's the nutria we would want him to see shadow.

Text comes in and says I think it's long overdue that we broke out Teddy Roosevelt's big stick we have spent far too long. Walking Solso it's speaking softly I think is vehement Trumba sinking as back to the old tough America look at the difference.
