No looking back because they're back this was done -- the -- god got more and warrants aren't. Tell the law about losing ways that time I'll walk like a war reopened their mom won't run. All industries they shot Abydos likens Islam insistent that -- another brother hung.

Mean not happy you know grateful instead of you know say in things about the police and religious trying to protect his property. Yeah I'm with you by -- are around so with you on Jim Crowley trust me different from Cambridge PD. It really gets my goat about this last week. Barack Obama had the gall to shake the hands of police officers. That represented the 23 -- in the 37 Port Authority operatives never mind the 3.3 five fighters. Who made the choice delayed on the lives. Many had to think Larry -- -- -- party at the white house on us talked about how Michelle Obama needs a few too many tamales don't get between the -- Molly. He joked that night. Now -- police. Memorial week -- supposed to be recognizing the sacrifices. Made by dead cops on Sunday. This is the same -- that -- his campaign. His staffers purported Johns and Portland Oregon police memorial. So aren't please -- a week when his -- all of the DC Michelle Obama.

That his poetry if she's invited common to the White House tomorrow night to celebrate. Poetry. Well to me it sounds like rap whip out but boom boom in the background. And my opinion is perhaps then from the word crap. So you know -- I see at the silent -- Yes right exactly. And how appropriately named is that -- comment. Spezza and that's I think it's insulting TJ there's so many beautiful -- I mean patent problem I into the Atlantic it. Fantastic how about we invite. Even who -- precious. That sapphire and a problem with celebrating. Diverse poets I do however have a problem celebrating. Rappers slash AKA -- according to Michelle Obama who wanna kill police officers and make.

It's not divisive to have a public who dropped did she -- for Italians and by the way up from a dynamic and it. The fact that this guy can drop -- that. Call that murder police officers get an invite to the White House whether -- can recite this moment but I. I don't they show I totally like -- don't they get spoke should be -- -- it would -- black people at the same. A quarter in the first place I always -- all cops but one myself but we just. That that I don't. Yes it everywhere and chart that make it. Took a black do you predict when you know a policy mistake it's ridiculous that our. That's what I'm saying.

A common stock are having it be that it's. Read the lion aren't exactly and it nation are -- that's the point they should be at the White House either of redneck picnic. So on dropped recently that and Kolb I'm pleased -- -- it's fascinated with they had they have in mind this is not about race this ballots right in this is about my money. And once again my money is being squandered to throw out when I'm sure -- serving very expensive champagne. To people who have no business getting through security gate to get into the White House in the first place the Secret Service -- have to I. I told that they are -- aren't they cute bit and that's where it went keep our ears that's basically it expects should go to another bank NA as. Obama attitude or a certain end up reports people what -- -- made a mistake but George Bush and -- nickel back. I don't really Bosnia there. Raise the. That's good Steve Steve -- Michelle McPhee. In a Howie Carr and how our show I Steve. -- Michelle you know trying to put a are trying to find the positive Bangalore and -- work with -- for a minute. I don't you think that if you can get beyond that the cop killing. -- think that this just a person who has asserted his Second Amendment Rights. This is and we use it during the lighter -- -- legal loophole. In racing's Second Amendment Rights. Well we expect that. The argument Steve and where the pictures of Osama bin Laden with a double tap to the Durbin. Not by about one. Now Steve -- and that's the remote app on my FaceBook page which you can I'll accept that Michelle -- dot com. I'm all that said Michelle I bought the Steve Grossman. Who lives up to his last name and I agree with you on this one because yeah it does just. -- and I mean. Couldn't defend any idea that this guy was at the White House is trying to defend rap music and the idea that content has been invited to the White House repeatedly. And Christmas remind everyone how common met the Obama's in the first place. This is how they all became pounds in Chicago. This is where they. All started to. I don't think it was it an island that is we have it longer and America what I had impressed -- how they on the actress. -- -- answer right Ron Amadon man at the reverend Jeremiah is church. And a -- -- next and I like our show. I'm Michelle and I thought if I have not really great job you know that it probably they had it location Tom and gotten some time. Yeah you're right why plus and -- had it. You know -- comic book movie star now and I'm not a big hip hop band -- out. I think at best it's repackaged just go at worst it's the thirty year search for the perfect novelty record. And now. A common I think you know I know enough about what's going music these days to think that hip hop and few common. Sort of pathetic. You know. A tempest in a teapot. And you know not someone who is as swaggering as some other artists might be. You know so in some -- people onto the White House because he's just another kitty cat but. Chicago Obama. Well that's all right it's like if they don't travel in packs over there and in no we have Deval Patrick from Chicago we have Ron Emmanuel. We have all these people who have done I think great harm today constituents that they -- that they -- I'm the youngest son -- band you know. Most notable fathers then noted musician I did not know. We had a far out they had -- some raw art history. And the -- others pat Patrick Rick -- of that vote. I did not know at Bryant that's really into it Darren -- -- I am -- look at sunny email on that nick PW RK dot com that's that's very interesting did you see the Deval Patrick's. Father what I really nightmare I did not know that either this pretty interesting. I'm gonna -- Deval Patrick Tom Kelly gala. On Friday night that medal of honor recipient that he dumped unceremoniously but he still shot but the -- Down by Charlie Baker at the Hynes convention center on Friday night. Can you are next. On. And so I don't. Shall point here. I think well there I was for the most divisive president we haven't had. It's your country. Except Britain and make our country I think. More racial racially divided. Debate and appears in market appears social. If you that we have has not helped here -- the sad fact that. Young -- African Americans in the music on themselves -- -- streak with a legal guidance. And Leo goes as such as myself who hunt for in I can't have illegal guns are registered. They want to. I just register weapons and now they want to collect tax weapons probably illegal guns are on the streets every gate. Cardinal political approach children or consolidate various social drug -- could have been last week. Why is it that black people I never portrayed as being racist they can call. I hit series like people all cookies. Crackers why things. In the N word is the only racial slur. In there in -- an English language I don't understand what I'm very confused. Well can I don't even wanna go there because it's just not part of the conversation that people have an everyday life. That's the reality. But it's okay to drop these racial epic that's in a home. That you know -- -- -- to show you really think they're gonna read up home at the White House it doesn't matter if they read this -- -- letter to the lot. At the White House it's the idea that the man but who do all the home is gonna stride right past -- replacement. To the White House. What are you talking about here and we are paying for it.
