Look turner is a father of four raised him bro Kansas by a single dad who worked at the local sonic drive in restaurant to pay for college to become a teacher. His family he says reflects Republican ideals. I think the Republicans need to do better job of selling our message it's very a tractor. Individual freedom personal responsibility. Do you think. Right now that loyalty to trump is sort of a pre requisite to be a Republican or how do you thread that needle. This is a party that trusts individuals. To believe what they believes.

How often talks about how each you know gets a lot of ratings but at the end of the day. People want problem solved not ratings or her personal you know. Popularity and that's why some of our Republican governors are the most popular people whether or not they are loyal to this president.

The FBI says Q and on could pose a domestic terrorist threat. And some of his followers have been charged with murder planned kidnapping in domestic terror but the president and some Republican candidates have welcomed their support. Well an aerial much about the movement other that I understand they're likely very much. Which I appreciate at least three GOP congressional candidates have openly embraced Q and on. Cho Ray Perkins of organ Marjorie Taylor Green of Georgia and born Bober of Colorado. If elected be be the first to give it a foothold in US government you can't. Corroborate any of it. But you have to listen to it only because. There are millions of people didn't do listen to it.
