Starting tomorrow if you're 21 you can legally smoke marijuana at home and grow plants at home for maybe you were you. But you still won't be able to smoke in public and there won't be any legal way to buy and cook who still in the lead now by an evil profit. And I also fly and anything anything we can do. To help this go alone and there for you and to call my people who called me it doesn't make any difference who have no formal system. Around here. There's no sign the Stanley influence is waning now. Once trump moves to the White House the first lady's office is slated to become the first camera off. Think that you're going to be part of the administration and Monica. I am now I'm going to get on. Perfect as it were true I heard things were not true there but all good at all all good as I've written some nights of the week. Let's start right off the bat. There is no formal chain of command I that I actually believe that in the war here in the more I read them believe that. Let me tell is something I hate formal chain of command I know what you are saying I don't know it's got a I got in here. We let everyone and like I've ever I had to and I always hated it. Detroit I agree we got those gift cards dividend and a DB just want to give them outrage I'm sure yeah. If you really bothers me Bibi is this did cheat after being goes through day. We have a game is on lawless and I would we can't we do you saw her ahead of him. He will like slyly but not so subtly I. Hard to talk to him and I mean I don't care it's critical not clearly you're a Catholic school and smacks you on your you know and as you all the chain of command. I the more you unlock the more the person gets irritated that you've gone above them. Like you know and our particular point now where you you've reached the point of dog we're cities it's not worth the war the last place I worked. Same thing there was a joke about going up the stairs because if you went up the stairs before going into that office up. Either you're in big trouble or you're violating a really do or who like Cold War is satin stole the rule that. We were not gonna have to have a meeting as to why you thought you could do that your response. To the golden key that got you op somehow the crazy this usually in the office this is why collectively we might be the worst team on radio because you guys should be trusting me that's the reason why I eight interject myself into these situations because. I don't want you to get in trouble they look at you would. Like I hope there are gone you haven't even including yeah. I'm going over its head I don't I. Art through email see this is where Cheney committing it's crazy. Gave implicitly assumes when we go to the next low level person above him which Omar you're about six levels above them all in my view yet. That somehow it's cloud something that Dave has anything to do it. It's a partisan fronting kind of amount I may be talking about that person about golf about fatherhood about Christmas yeah it's have nothing it usually doesn't have anything to do with him. But there's free food how dare you this is the clintons were the epitome. Of the Clinton administration was the epitome of chain of command. And now with what we were rejecting some for trump to save these yesterday it's a total ratification. Don't think trump picks up the phone will just call Summers say it's DJD what's going on I and I believe him actually I. Think that this isn't just TM in a meeting with cameras near perfect example of this folks we're talking about this in the second. But there is an explanation today about how this whole thing started with Mitt Romney. And you know make calls there president lacked. Present like misses the call. Calls him back. He's is okay. This is great why you called Donald again when you get a sack as dot com and having their eight you can tell they're just all sort of like all that you know I'm mr. habits also look at Chad. I it will be easy to be true I think there's really not all that much chain of command and everybody's just sort of they are trying to do their thing. Anything we can do. To help this go on them. There for you and to call my people who called me it doesn't make any difference we have no formal chain of command. Around here. So you Euro yeah I tape forever that's show's judges organized and well this array and bottled. I can I ask anyone every single person on CNN that is going to rip that statement today I ask you. Do you like the chain of command at CNN. Because you show me guy that likes chain of command and I'll show you the most unimaginative. And innovative. Uninspiring. Rounds I've just punching in and punching out workers there is ever band no little likes chain of command I don't remember this too. Chi he may say there's no chain of command that he has the ability to put one in police. You know. If it's Dave starts calling it the president all of Latin yeah he didn't say too cute Dave locked you know Biden are or you could say to. His secretary. You take care of this iMac a deal there isn't universal. There is a chain of command but the parts that wasn't and verbal comment because that was if you have an issue. Feel free to call me feel free to text me which is at right I address it at some point if there is a problem if there is an issue. Yes sure maybe they call him first but then what is he gonna he's gonna pass that onto right there he's in east and wet like every. A person in newsroom is important enough. Don't hesitate to call right and I may answer I mean not most of those guys know how to get to him directly via Twitter I don't. But they know how to and they can column and much like in the Romney case. If they call him he's gonna call him back you know and or while Barca will apparently. Finally. I. I'm I hope that stays true might do what usually happens is in any organization does your in my doors always open. Within about two months that Doris clothing and well and usually when they call you my door is also rightly knew that to say stay out of my office. I hope this stays I. They did they do that because it be that the practicality of trying to. Keep all the balls in the air becomes too great and then he has to pass it off pretty well and you know rights like you said Dave Wright to be. Right to be a guy who stands at the door and says I'm sorry he can't do that today your PG and and so so for. If you're a tech nerd. I'm a little bit of attack there and I got to try to claim them a bigger tech nerd that I am I'm. That room yesterday. Minus Twitter for obvious reasons. Amazing team all million on billions in that room well. They held brilliance in the room until forget. Give the money right just the greens and the innovation that famous smog summit at the godfathers yes right right right where they you know the five families were there in the cops finally got wind of and they they arrested in Bosnia as. This was that for now tech world I mean this was. Aside from not having gates there and you know I'd just starting at covers I know all right let's fine this was as close as your ever going to get to. The real movers and shakers of the world and one roam around the table we are sure to tell people there were in the remarks. I can't tell you that is the truth that's that is a that is a more powerful room in my estimation. That if you brought. You know five world konduz Jim Brown. If you brought five world leaders I mean these guys. Our salute and these are resolute even most powerful people in the world not America in the world but they have chains of command. Because Zuckerberg wasn't their gates wasn't their cook wasn't there like so there still is the creme de La creme and I'll send a. There wasn't in the houses that's a pretty bench Cheryl Hamburg was their rep got that he probably would mean that's that's the hot item yeah I mean not exactly sure that it was in WikiLeaks she was in there with you know saying she would help the Hillary Clinton Campaign and anyway Sheikh it's. These noses and this is my number one issue. As I've told you with Romney. I will tell you we're gonna do that stories and I will tell you about. Jeff Beatles there has to be a limit. To the open past Jeff b.s those again and he runs Amazon biggest company biggest mover shaker fine. But he owns the Washington Post and he specifically. Ordered personally. His staff to get trauma. And they continue to do it to this day. In the end diesels has this picture that was sent down whether he didn't on purpose or not all of him with this said the sour puss face on in the media now. There is a limit I think these bush should not have been. I disagree and let me tell you why because Donald Trump is the president for all people and. And he runs a huge company now they don't have to agree politically. But he belonged in that room because Donald Trump is the president of all people all Americans. And these this is an American running a very large company they have to find a way to work together. On both sides so ice I come again these these these fellows. Who were coming together to table the rest of the country needs to take a look at this. If they come together at a table in New York City at trump tower and try to listen to one another reasonably reasonably. Then people on the east's campuses and all across this country should be doing the exact same thing I mean they're setting an example. And so he should be their he has to be there he's a powerful guy. And they need one another child. I wouldn't choose. Healthy well I'm here food that's fine I'd but I would that be there there comes a point at which it is personal. In what you have done is crossed the line to where I can just sit there and pretend like this is nothing diesels is way over on that you need further. I ask any links are over the line then Mitt Romney was anyone not for I don't want to line. Then what Donald was in some situations so I put it he's causes the number two never trooper behind along. But I hope your rationale is because days those are column these. And apparently self. But I hope your rationale is because you don't believe that they just said go get Hillary Clinton. Because I want the John Henry's the day's dose of the world to say to their staffs. Go after Donald Trump go after Hillary Clinton get what ever information is usually hot and that is what is serving the public was they. Personal mission to destroy Donald Trump because he thought isn't it trump was the worse. They've spread more fake news about trump and Dave do what they're doing it today is that 2.0 which when I come in in the morning one of the first as a check his Washington Post. But I'm laughingly trying to guess with the absurd stories and they knew what today there's still pushing this BS thing that the Electoral College could still play. This that. Well I think that it's a good sign I like to see them all sitting there together because. You know Donald Trump is he's the president he won what does he care at this point so you know bring everybody together. I am everybody's president and besides a porch he he runs a very very large empire. Six foot 72666860. We've got a great. Show coming your way this morning. Coming up next we're gonna talk about what happened according to a number of journalists behind closed doors. And why Mitt Romney is not the nominee for secretary of state. You're listening to WR Cuba Austin aka more jobs. What this phone call. Was to express to president elect's appreciation. For the Ford beat Tony twelve nominee going through the process for being willing to go through being processed and also to express the hope. That the president elect would be able to continue to receive the counsel and advice from Mitt Romney going forward. Mean if you look at the things that Romney said about trump you have to save yourself. I don't care how good a sure loser he is why would you believe him. Movie comes amounts says you know all those mean vicious things I said about just I didn't really mean that. I give me a break. So sure he's got a should Mitt Romney have apologized. Publicly. To Donald Trump six or 766686868680. Is attacks line and that is the question. Because apparently according to a number of sources. That's what Donald Trump needed heading dotted publicly. Total vehicle puck on backward said I should have said what I said. He would be a nominee today. Somebody told me yesterday would you shop for want to take some calls sought they want to have it I have a take on this that I haven't heard elsewhere. I wanted to and after we take a couple calls about that among many he surely. Surely there are girls. My chain of commands instruction I will say one thing about this. You will not need that instruction if yeah. Blatantly ignore it up a. Well we need to give people a chance to die also given just a second here 6172666868. Should their have banned an apology from Mitt Romney. I actually thought we heard the apology and I think we did it. And it was a forward leaning. Apology and saying quote here because armed. You know remembering came outside die she did what I could do I think you know he's got some great ideas solar so hurt. Never any mention the infamous speech obviously and that was I think what's stuck in the. Prague Donald Trump Scott. I know that myself he gets something out try to who was unsuccessful and he won the general election. Scott is in Weymouth this morning hey Scott good morning should be a probe have apologized. Good morning give me easy. And no he shouldn't have in don't they realize he is going to come out looking better than complements. Once you took the bark off the tree it looks like trump was looking political game where Romney thinks yes Romney was holding his ground. Now he says what he meant would be certainly that we amounts. Now trumpet his people wanted him to say you know wink wink nod nod. Say the right thing will be in the cabinet. And Romney held the ground then it got very respectful. I think Mitt Romney has regained himself politically personally and their respective. Country release of those depict particular customer list and those. Where from there's more you know I went pointed out all pickers around. Play along around the inland so I don't think he should have if you want the states. If that is where the rub of the road if if Mitt Romney wasn't a true to himself that know if you want to be a politician. Which is sadly is what the country at all politicians know not many more public servants. Then grounded to the right thing. Scott thank you. Six or 72666868. X 8680 is a tax on so I think. Would do is really shows I believe this story from CNN I don't always been in this case I think I think this is dead on what happened there. Romney humored excuse me trump humored Revis and talked around. As you well know Mitt Romney is very engaging and person he's very likable he can charm people. He charmed trumpet inch hole was surprised by that and and the longer it went on you could tell where I'm sure Conway and Gingrich it's generally stop meeting with it's I think he'll meet with this guy because he's winning him over. But in the end. The speech it wasn't the apology decode for quick shore hands who would have believed an apology was genuine. That apology would have been to a laughingstock and he would stop what alternate universe is he would ironic Scott what does that I think Scott know it was a big seller out it would have been a total ally says it here there's someone out and I I would let up at all for a legitimate right. What this really does show if you believe his story and I do. Is it ultimately. No matter how much sticking charm each other and say let bygones be bygones. Neither of them trusting each other enough and wide right I do very well. So the stories that trump said to Romney. What can you just apologized is that it isn't for me it's for them and he points to Conway and parents and I Gingrich etc. You would freeze damage will put an end to this. Romney has the know deep down. Really though it isn't for you because he's a story out there that you're doing this to make me apologize and then you're gonna pull the world football away from him. This in other words on both the there. There has to be eleven was a little rust when you get down to that if trump genuinely didn't care if trump is the alpha dog food. Pay I don't care Kelly kind common things on everything that he doesn't do can you just do this for them and Romney. Have to have that little guy in the back in his mind saying. He is doing this to humiliate me as much they told you yesterday he never felt that for 12. There had to be a little bit of that of that there of course of the Apollo I was he was ever an audio and think he was Smart in feeling the outlet. Because I don't know that he would have come out and said what I said before was wrong I shouldn't have said it. And Donald Trump would have said hey you know what I'm gonna anthrax. So much follow up question for a few weeks ago seventies XX 6060s. Do you think if Mitt Romney did a formal apology he would have been the pact I don't. I don't think we can know that I don't I don't really don't and I I. And I don't think that. And I don't think Mitt Romney must have thoughts of by the way there is still I think Mitt Romney still thinks there is a chance I I jokingly said he's he never wrecks her. But if Rex doesn't get the committee vote he's dead if Rex doesn't get approved who do you think he's going to be depicts however buddies get. I've always told the story of for an minds bong brother of mine had a friend. Who is engaged to this woman that my brother didn't like him and she got cold feet and backed off and my brother told them. Almighty god vesting that if it happened near anyone in this long rant about how she was the devil incarnate. Guess what happened than a week later the call FICO warmer they got back together and they ended up getting married in my Brothers and it. They can graduate kids and Coca-Cola acrobat government. So whoever I hate to get to that extent. Until Rex is confirmed it called now after all Romney may have you know I got what may I'm ready 5% chance. But nothing is off. The table 6172666860. Yates self. What do you think should Mitt Romney have apologized to Mardy apologized would it have made a difference I think the answer is that. An apology would not have made a difference in this case I think in the end the pill was just too large for Donald Trump to swallow when I don't think he could. I don't think he could get there I think he can do it. Explain and I think he wanted to in some ways I really do what anyone has ga. Everybody you Romney's dad don't even know I'd like I didn't Donald Trump actually did fall. For him and audit I was second choice he is is as they've said here. Mitch made it hard on him. Because he liked the way talked and he looked the part. Knowledge not a for personal feeling but I did know bill and I don't know if you're cameras picked it up it's all the little clip. But both points preakness and Donald Trump or having filet. On Mitt Romney's played there was a big big slice of crow. Six or 72666868. And. It is so 628 on the WRQ bust not come origin. Was just quote to toy with him unquote. But daring to criticize trop. So you can head to the list of the qualities that trump has faded out. But he's not mean you want to get back good people and make them suffer humiliate I am I. All caught joy. A lot of our Texas think seven they were were you born yesterday. Trump played him like a fiddle go back in your mind what Mitt did he never ever had a shot it was all about putting men and his knees. I did think that originally but I think some I think that's what trump was doing come kiss my ring and and I'll dismiss him and like everything on a quick photo op and ought to begin that he was surprised. I think what he said about Obama holds true for men and he's been surprised at. Who these guys are now wouldn't have been if you write that he has right. Well I'll play yet I guy who is you know involved it was an advisor for Romney back in 2012 actually sad and I'm quoting here I have a hard time believing that prompt. Expanded all this energy expended rather all of this energy in time to simply tweak Mitt. And the Henson rides and others in the president elect's circle. Would play along the dinner change I mean did you not doing that Jane Aronson and out that it's wanting to have him over and try you know I was that would be one think one of the things that people say it was a real sticking point for them. Was Russia because an alleged mistress yeah allegedly were. Mitt Romney has always said that you know he thinks there should be no apologies no negotiation and no trust associated with Vladimir Putin or anybody who's running Russia. And we all know that's not exactly the approach that Donald Trump has. And reports a that they could never they could ever bridge that divide. So that was another reason for Donald Trump to look elsewhere. Let's go to Dan Danson met for this morning hey Dan good morning here at WRKO. Our time you want it here. Is on the streets as the odd couple one is met Robbie violated Ronald Reagan's eleventh commandment thou shalt not speak ill of the Old Republic yeah. Number two. It would be a perfect choice to secretary of state patrol reported that would make her look really well. And but very easily traded to the Republican Party if he should've apologized the party unity. All three of those are true I like your second point the most because I do like his first point because if that was the key so I mean how the Republicans are already heading out badly of other mean and unfortunately backed. That's gone out the window that hasn't been an issue whatever this came up during the race money. You know the Republican Party likes to eat its own have you ever used the phrase right now. And don't tell me about the eleventh commandment if you have if you use that describe Scott Brown Charlie Baker cannot Mitt Romney who. Then you who have violated the eleventh commandment so. The Republicans do that the Democrats don't that's always been a problem for this party verses their power. Six or 72666868. Dollar after this came out last night. Mitt Romney didn't say anything more. Yesterday he tweeting out you know whenever put on face go to stories that Ingram write he's for now. After a thorough I think forever but thank you said Intel hope. Until there's a problem possibly getting Rex threw T Rex right in the oracle and directs direction him.
