At the cashier at the people who are bagging the groceries all I swear and all they kept talking about. Wish these epidemic of these creepy clowns. And apparently now there have been incidents in over twenty states it's going all the way up to Canada even in Nova Scotia and other places in Canada. It allegedly started in August. Whereby in South Carolina. Somebody saw a tool clowns dressed up in with the creepy mask and everything and they claim. Is that they were trying to kill somebody in the warts. Griese. I got balloon blowing yeah. So I don't know we'll lose. At hand this hole I kid you not. There have been videotaped having that people have been videotaping clowns sightings everywhere. Clowns at ninth clowns on the side of the rolled clowns in the wards. Clowns in parking garages clowns in and dark alleys. And it's gotten so bad that there are actually have been several clowns creepy clowns we'll column imitators whatever they are. For example one in New York. A creepy clown this is just a couple days ago on a subway. In Manhattan. And started to chase a teenager out of a train station he was wielding a knife. The clown once. And there was like I was trying to like stabbed a teenager. And a teenager basically ran for his life. As the creepy clown was trying to to stab. They say that other creepy clowns have tried to stab her assault other people. In twenty states the problem is. That now everybody seem creepy clown wants. And so I'm not kidding you've got police chiefs. Who are now complaining that they're getting so many calls of creepy clowns are a potential creepy clown attacks. Betty it's draining. Public resources. 911 calls the police. And you've got university campuses. Whereby for example in Syracuse. The Syracuse University is now because the students are so afraid of the clowns I swear to you. That there warnings still wins do not assault cock clowns. If they see one on campus. Or god forbid if they should see one on Halloween. And they're saying if look it's not a crime to Wear a clown suit. And if you see somebody McLeod suit and you attack come they say it's gonna be a violation of the lights and assault. Quote just stay away from that person I'm headed the opposite direction. And it's getting so bad listen to this story this is Emmys is just an incredible story. So with all of this hysteria it's a wave of hysteria. Gripping this country about clowns creepy trounced the series of all these creepy clown sightings. There is footage that has now come out. Whereby it's a group of teenagers they were just sort of hanging out in their car. And one of their friends wanted to play pranks army collapsed but it's just a little bit funny. And so we dresses up as a creepy clown with the creepy clown mask and everything and he's holding balloons. And he walks up to the car and the car I don't know where it is more secluded air in the area that is hanging out having fun. And he just stands in front of the car. And so literally baked or taping is and they start freaking out in the car. Going nuts in the car. Well one of bomb ends up grabbing a baseball bat. And he gets out of the car and he smashes the guy Dick in the in the clown suit in the Meeks. And then a couple of other friends jump you could see on the audio and they start wailing on the ground I mean they're beaten the hell out of the clown. And then they finally run back into the car and then they rush off. And this guy's like on the ground on if beaten target eleven beaten to a pulp feel like guys it's it's meets Joey yeah. I'm just horsing around there was a gag. Yeah yeah yeah Romeo has got yeah. I'm real. Yeah are you serious. I don't know. And gore and his crew broke solid sound and the Euro. Oh and let's go. Around. And I. I mean it occurs a mug him out of a car are much remembered Karr. I mean the guys about Leo areas I mean so it's getting so bad listen that is. So in north Redding now this is in masks. Even though there have been no direct threats in north threading that town's police chief Michael. As well as the superintendent John Bernard. Are saying now because they're citing club has been clowns sightings like near schools and near the kids and stuff. They're saying now that they're coordinating with state and federal law enforcement. To address potential clown threats. Sold their soul worry of these creepy clown than maybe they're gonna assault students. That mother bringing state and federal law enforcement. Now. Look I saw very creepy clown. Scared the hell out of me I don't know about you that was Tuesday night that was Tim Kaine. That was creeping gain. I mean the creepiest clown I ever saw who is on Tuesday night. And if I saw him look at the parking garage or whatever walk in the hallways here earlier that might I've got rock. A rock Britney the other way it. Here Britney Ron run for your life run for your life. That's the only combat I'd seen. And so it's getting so bad. You're gonna think I'm joking god is my witness it's not a spoof. They've now formed deport clowns have formed an organization. Or group called clown lives matter. I'm serious and they're gonna start protests thing they wanna hold rallies. To stop this discrimination. Against the clowns. It's gotten so bad if you have professional clowns. Saying we're leaving the business. We're just quitting it's not a word that. Nobody wants the higher singing more for birthday parties or functions are events. And now I get we get verbally abused we get insulted. We're getting physically a pack. It's it's almost like we've become non persons. It's almost like we've become public enemy number one and so there's amassed defection of people now leaving the clown business completely. They don't longer wanna be clowns. So they'll pull question of the day is this. Are you afraid of clients. Mike if you see a guy walking on the sidewalk or on the street when a clowns who are you afraid. If the answer is yes. Dad Jeff he's creeping clowns or start a creep me out tax the letter age this 68680. If on the other hand a clown is just the call my own and you know why.

Jeff my seven year old granddaughter on choose day. Was near this swings with a friend jarring recess. When a late teen early twenty year old girl. Walked over to them showed a clown on her phone to the girls and said he knows where you live. And will come and get you. They ran through the teacher. Funny you need to get buzzed into the school building but you can walk on to a school playground. This is in New Hampshire. That's not funny. I mean if what that girl you know if you walk up to seven year old kids in you've shown pictures are clowns and they know where you live and they'll come and get you. Even if that was a joke that's my fun. There it is just not funny 617 to a segment that's me 61720666868. It's. Her in Woburn. Almost order. Let me order you're on the air scooter.

So in the final scooter a lot of people have baseball bats at the house or in their car for protection. I mean not everybody can be Brittany what a 44 Magnum you know what I'm saying scooter. Don't all don't understand what don't think god bless you buddy I'm glad you're an American citizen out those who you for a long time. Thank you scooter right appreciate it thank you my friend 6172666868. Look any topic is on the table. We can talk about hurricane Matthew we can talk about the debate on Sunday which you think trump needs to do we can talk Syria. But let me ask you this yet what all this epidemic of clowns sightings in creepy clowns. Like I mentioned to a previous caller you're at a Dunkin' Donuts you're at a dairy queen your router wherever. There have been a little snack here relaxing you know listening to direct talks are listening to music or the patriots when Brady comes back on Sunday or your car. And you see a creepy clown or somebody in a clown costumes in your parking. In all honesty. Are you afraid. Do you leave. Or do you just say it's a clown. All this is much ado about not. 61720666868. George another one in Woburn. Great show you George I get slaughtered her briefly talk about the debate coming up Sunday yes. And quote I'd like to see trump prosecute Hillary on the other three major scandals and back which I haven't come up yet. It sounds awfully simplistic. But it basically writing on April. Really concise. Focused talking point talking point could go into it in two minutes. And basically have antlers. It'll tell trumpet basically MR I at least point. And practice saying it would have been hearing it again just sitting around and talking about the idea. You need at eight pretty basic memorized permanency in and that's my point. And I hope not too long is going to be difficult at town hall style meeting. But. I thought I heard that the moderator you're gonna ask a few of the questions. If they do as the time to get these in the matter what he has to do it. Did you switched topic to get into ticket confiscating things in the earlier in the debate content other. That's likely because I'd been getting frustrated these parties and cutting out and money to it. And not really crisp and chat in Korea. Do we. Really icon and Georgia are they think you're spot on look. My advice to trump is this a we'll talk about it in greater detail Sunday starting at 7 o'clock for our special corner report. So will do pre debate showed taking your calls. We'll cover the debate and then at about 1030 local and take a post debate show taking your calls Salma beyond seven till midnight live this Sunday. But my advice to trump is very simple. That's the one strike against him that many people say again and again is they wanna see him be more presidential. More statesman like doesn't mean he can't be tough doesn't mean can't be forceful doesn't mean you can't take it to Hillary. But stop it looked dead the dead the funny faces. Stop it would the facial gestures. Stop a cutting her off when she speaks just let her serve which he's got to say that you come back that are hard. In other words you have to come across like you can be the commander in chief and the leader of the free world. And so my advice to him as deep presidential. Stand tall. Showed dignity show costs but you've got to take a tour. And you've got to have a couple of paragraphs in your mind memorized. Where you here. On Ben Ghazi on the Clinton foundation on the emails on Libya on Syria on iShares on the Russian reset on her record. You gonna pour it all together. And you do that. And you hammer her. You can't lose. Now the town hall is his Forte. He likes people he bounces off their energy. He likes dealing with people they can kind of feeds off the energy and a passion of the crowd so I think any town hall will suit him better. But if he's gonna try again to be well Chelsea's in their home and I don't want her Chelsea's feelings and if you've got to look you're gonna caulk it. You you've got it caught it. It's round two you've got to go for the knockout. And I think with Mike Pence having done so well launch Tuesday night's debate. It's gonna set up trump very well for Sunday night. If trump fox presidential. And trumpets focused and on message he will destroyer. But iffy starts with the insults or the the facial gestures or that stray you know other than that that the facial movements and the rolling of the guys because the camera turns right awaiting him. Jaded they always wanna catch a look as quote unquote before nation as possible. So he's got to be for ninety minutes he's got to be ultra disciplined. He does it he wins Sarah in Bedford going head sour. There actually called let's talk about Cabrera set am if you get that way into Tampa no I'm just joking aren't. With trump I'd think they'd need to take away his Twitter account at earth and them I think he'll probably do trying to the next debate with that being account top. Up. And then with the clown and now I don't peseta crown before it was cool but I have to say it is ridiculous it's going on right now however. I am hearing things on track and and local neighborhood. I don't call that the school and I and that the school. I'd start a note from my friend she said that someone stands and know what to the high school her daughter and with a list of didn't name. Threatening that they are gonna come in a clown cars cost him and killed these students and he's so people are out. I don't know who is not match ups are. I hope they catch them I hope they get charged appropriately meg they go to jail because at that particular armed to scare people like that. Saro while I did not hear this. Yep it's done I know. Right over here that there I don't think and know when somebody get caught high school threatening you know on a bomb at a knock out Arantxa. On and down in Florida is where my friend is that I am. Her high school glad I had a threatening letters today with students' names policy about and it and saying that they're gonna come on kill Christians. So I am I mean you can't get people being a little. Sickening I mean it's disgusting Sarah I wanna askew and when asked the audience is all kidding around now we all kidding aside forgive me no kidding around. To me growing up honestly Ronald McDonald clown parties. I always associated clowns with something positive happy. You know kiddy like fun. Where did this come in our culture and panel Stephen king's novel it but generally that clowns are menacing. Clowns are evil. Clowns or something to be afraid of almost diabolical. How what happened in our culture that now suddenly you put on a clown suit and it's almost like you're intimidating people. Yet you know honestly I am I don't know why I always catch it in public and I would get hysterical I don't think it's not like them. By he's thinking it movie definitely it was dale. And them and you know I. I have country and knowing other people also don't like crap I don't feel so old without admitting it. But up and reminded I have a plea. Loved OxyContin. I can hear when barking in the background Saro. Thank you so much for that call I appreciate it god bless you Gunner in middle world golf. OK.
