Let's go to Nicklaus open it's mixed bag heckler WB yeah. Our boys. So give us the behind the scenes story. I'm well let my wife. Create is. I go well for. A lottery based. Ticket Tom. Our giveaway and I got you know that com. That I got a ticket. I'm sure that was a really hot commodity. Its who wants to see the state of the state. While waiting in line to balance. The whole law. I decided that golf originally a weapon in the gulf it's now like look from one minute fame. It has stomp yeah articles some earlier today. Opposition both stories it is obedience to god like and right at some and let that be or when I you know can you think things were actually true. So I and and it was hard to sit through. And what I did what I wore. Not Roger obviously calm all the eye on what article sure. Ball and that what I got and very cold but the only come YE. The blue shirt off and all I am I mean Cuomo on what note that right awake these glaring hole. All we gotta okay hold on we we have to do picked this story up after traffic and weather but one of the questions and answer when we come back is. Why did you select the color shirt you selected because it didn't look kind of like the carpenters union shirts. And as you've probably heard earlier one of my dear friends is one of the big shots in the carpenters union. I'm so I'll just I thought that was ironic let's get back to Nicholas who tackle Governor Cuomo during Governor Cuomo is buffalo appearance today will play UV relevant parts of that audio. To weather wise men what we should there. So far. So I. Niagara fools. May learn. That's that's a good stuff there first of all the shirt you're selected Nicklaus was that dumb because you knew that the carpenters guys had similar colored shirts or was that just by coincidence. No I didn't know that you're either today com I only had one caller on the ball. Was appropriate or spurred. So it just was a coincidence. Right OK I had asked that question from different. Aren't sure. Just panic state Fannie. Armed scrutiny is getting in the door. All right Smart thinking Smart thinking and then how close were you two were the governor was speaking. Will be picked surprisingly it think it may be. Eight to enroll. From the podium. We're used center right left. I wired right from the podium. OK so if Governor Cuomo was looking eight to ten rows deep and off to hear is. Yeah out. Our great EIL and and I actually leaned out. All this couldn't worked out any better you what a horrible setup of your Cuomo what else do you think you are at this event this is this is like the feeling I get if I see Steely Dan and I get front row right in front of Donald Fagan okay it gives me that special kind of feeling so anyway. Nicklaus at what point did you decide it was time to tackle and how did you figure out what you're gonna say. You know what I I just edit arms and provide. I you know it takes a much seeing what I it was courageous spot. It takes. A little bit of courage to do let me on your product in all 34000. People that just think that Cuomo can't do any wrong and your whole paper stands up and that's. All it took balls here necklace it's a great deal of testicular fortitude and by the way your wife also exhibited. Fortitude. During that protest last week where your wife and her other friends were called quote stupid white bitches at that rally against racism. So. So you're bigger you're leaning out in to the aisle this did not work out any better had you paid somebody to do it. And were you waiting for him to bring up the ball million. You know what I just. Because it like at that I I can improvise because it was great thing law. And I knew how to defeat opposition obviously Paul when you are talking about the ball all billion and only Kurt involvement. Farm grown involvement and that. All I thought that that was the perfect opportunity via com. They would I want to say about it and all it is under investigation and are like eight said earlier in order a lot of all. You know corruption behind. You know hall. These contractors were able to get these agreements are sort of building. And Internet crops and surrounded with. And that got him necklace see. That's his Achilles heel in New York safe. It is the corruption investigation and win you named it when you when you said corrupt and what you said Ferrara. I'm talent in his voice there was hesitation and it was almost like the formal we got the day after the indictments when he came to the Albright Knox over rated modern art crap gallery. It is if he was flustered by questions and to. Like all I I actually screamed at them and Hollywood and what are you. Com. And and redirect welcome all the caller into a conference that. Call meeting insisting on a spot law I'd put that the record straight I I write that bill. From the union he called. Alms you know and said at a what in the dark glad that yes. You'd did not yell drop dead at the sound like your voice you have to kind of like it it's your voice but yes you do not yell drop dead. Core. And we have corroboration. From a guy who doesn't agree with your politics my friend bill. So here's here's my question if you make is that. I I don't know I don't. But here's my him I think for unit is it. So you you. Governor formal make eye contact with you he sees your shirt. On right. We are at once obvious that he's dealt that you would think that someone would at least be prepared for that. You ought to be like a guy takes up assured you know. During the war all these old pictures right now they're chilled but all these things and they were removed the jacket wearing pink and they put opting tiara and it's like okay. They're about to put red paint on their hands and say your blood on your hands and you would prepare for an attack like that if Governor Cuomo was prepared. For what you mean what you said it was not that offense. It was that offensive at all but he sounds like a mean you went on to say that buffalo would billion ride in that a billion square does what Buffalo's getting them when you made to make. Too ridiculous mistakes argue they custom yeah. He probably made it out sitting next to do a piece that are awful billion right now. The urban ranked. We we said the same thing and then people are tax board have been repeatedly pointing out that they billions weird is not who. Up Nicklaus all of that. I mean your report right now the Merle Streep. So I mean what I'm asking you is we get back to following the news break. Ought to wrap it okay and I don't I don't want eagerness to have like a squabble tonight. In your house sold because you know you're wife had more airtime than you did on the buy hourly and television show so basically we're we're just trying to. We're trying to promote domestic tranquility. Are such a good they were. There's miffed that heckler he'll be back with a some news or the united thirty WB yet its hourly in bell Libya and we still have Merrill's street Italy and two as well. So we set a buffalo. It. Is this Aureus. Let's go to work Nicklaus the heckler and a Williams bill once again that was I've mentioned your wife I said. What I like about your heckling was the part where you were specific. About the corruption. And about our. And I mean I thought that was a whole run I thought that was your a game and you actually got all ball I think flustered worked flummoxed. When you were doing. Right in retrospect. And it's always easy to New Hampshire quarter but in retrospect do you think if you would stave that the heckling would have been more effective or did you. Do you have a mission accomplished. I don't know that over the mission accomplished I mean I eat like Edgar they're are you saying that I could go all they cannot Wear. Wall mall one while people pat and and that tackling and comment that came up in that way I talked call. The only read and I get a little fill and by calling him a traitor to New York State two and and a tyrant was because I feel that he is the earth. Our group and your state constitution and then part two and so why I turned it did at as a villain and the outside and yeah. The holes that you don't. But the audio first part of the audio wise. Right talked about them now at corruption. Law looming over him and Ali and the awful billion. Odd adult walking out I guess. Like it that I did some Dylan off I was being met by armed opposition from people any idol call me filthy name them. I'm what ever and I wouldn't care. I hope they didn't call you stupid white bitch. All all laid out here is because your wife and her courageous friends from last week I think that's a title they can actually Wear with pride going in to eight din of hundreds of people. As basically people we're supporting curls for human rights. Right yet exit at another situation but you know actually and I think what we're talking about because Karl at all a lot of rock and all homes nit thing you know 450. Million dollar an awful school district there get a lot a lot of corruption at the Rollins. On the named the monopoly all small and the awful school districts all are I think it all and I than what. You know the same story. On the end you know about that caller bill American you'll be at it and bought. Not yet understand that. A lot of these contracts and the like late Dave mentioned that you know big pretty much say in the country expert would get gold. Bad nine union company can't pay these project I worked nonunion construction at the former for twenty years. And I know that we're reputable company and we could do well is. Beat you mean guys. Look I you know I I think Bill Maher is is doing the right thing and as I pointed out the I mean it was all about a major component of it was you you've written out. A request for proposals. So you can bet on something and yet the only company that could possibly bid is this company that can expect all this money to meet in the Democrat party. There's something fundamentally. Corrupt appearing about the. Format exactly right now and that's that's fundamental difference but I am what formal hand. On the union and like I thought I don't. Ebony paper for the union. But I just don't like the crops connect complex aspect of it and the aspect though call. On the money was. Award it to be contractor. Armed like etc. my company at nine union and be viewed as follows you on union tree. Right and I am just so we're clear just so we're clear I am on your side I'm bet on that issue. You know I mean you're obviously your friend of the show your wife is a friend of the show. The guy who called in from the union he is a personal friend author and I you know I just felt. That it was important for me to be honest with people and say look there is a pre existing personal relationship I have with bill and his wife Courtney. So I would rather just be up front about that and the truth is right I have a very hard time. Confronting somebody over politics when we don't talk politics off the air a lot. And win you know just at his house and they were just a mind get out of San. Sure I have a lot of union and. And yet as sort of say this yacht it was a pussy interview I did but in general I'm not a spineless person. Not while we see you know build it and understand the relevance to what how thing secret what an informed and it Noelle I'll stick in the contract that I know. Arm healed everyone now and making it only possible for one developer to get there in the contract. I was with the awful schools to well implement an awful schools. Where you know New York City and not Erie county it's sort of blank track to one developer. Well thank god that Carl is has pointed that out and thank god by the way that we've got a guy whose wife isn't the lieutenant governor of New York State at the other end of the state. Who coached the US probe into it. And the only thing I don't like about pre Ferrari is the guy who's given him political cover all along is Chuck Schumer. Yeah go after the people are has gone after unless you've got somebody on top who is. Shall we say. In your own little glossy body but who's giving you an umbrella of cover open its network. And I just I wondered on the line what Farrar is gonna oh sure but maybe we're just putting the cart and for the worse. Right yeah I fear I fear that through myself arms so I mean he he has is let the people he's allowed to go after an analyst series. You know kinda have to. You know throw the towel and. Yup and by the way there is precedent for that if you go back and you look at the prosecution of the mob in New York City during the 1940 shall find that there. Tom do week Thomas Dewey for whom through wage is his name. Thomas Dewey went after a lot of mob big shots the most notable. Let people book called her. Who was the only syndicate leader of that stature ever to go to the electorate cheer but. Do we also took heat. As did the mayor of New York City for not going after some of the other mob big shots I believe Albert Anastasia was one of them. They are pretty much left alone. And there was some talk that he just had way too much Jews politically to be gone after. And that the mob itself sacrifice but Colter because he was creating too much heat nobody could make any money. So what the point is. Is that. Prosecutors throughout the ages people ask questions about that OK why did you go after this person and the other person. I guess we'll never know the answer you know here's my whole take on an heckling neck. You know heckling is is root your interrupting someone while they speaking. And you should be ashamed of yourself for doing that. But when you look at what your other her resources are to basically say why he only one here that's not. Just incensed at what I mean don't we have a governor that does not do town hall meetings. He doesn't open up the Florida here people from the other side he's essentially told people like you and me and other people who think like us that we're well. Oh come in his steady. He should we have to move to one another study we can not welcome media because of the way that that we think can believe so we have how. What else can you do in a nonviolent way paid to protest what you think is unconstitutional and outrageous. Yet we don't have many sources. To a poll was. Backed government backed governor I mean I'll leave it to a baseball soccer trying to educate our grandfather he allowed people aren't even interest it anyway. He doesn't read as FaceBook he's a cal already doesn't look in his Twitter doesn't ports like he doesn't respond to people who confront him ideologically and today. He was forced to confront it and he acted like a little girl and by the way our anti analysts say differently in February 2013 were I was at Albany and David your banker at the radio station Cuomo he eat he high -- Albany before her Alley did policy 101000 people saying. He was a gun grabbing tyrant. Nicholas anything else that you wanna say but that we have not specifically asked. It is there anything you wanna say that we haven't after. Are all in all now I just want the trying to make sure around you know any any car. A question. Are you getting a nick are you getting harassed on Twitter right now from the opposite side. You know what I don't I don't Twitter march on FaceBook a lot of people up in arms sure my opinion on FaceBook Fredette about it. On I guess I was getting grants and quarter cup a couple of my friends you don't tax me into Iowa but I'm you know I really I don't do things are popular. Opinions. All I'd say that you know it didn't bite my quad brand has been a big concern is the quality might find that concern me. I'm starting. Their opinion I don't really keep it you know I don't policy and yet on what data it not changed don't go to an enemy. You know you have to put a ribbon up somewhere and stand. I can lead against what concerns s.'s Nicklaus you just got through saying it's not the quantity of friends it's the quality of your friends and here you were talking with Tom and David on the radios or your judgment might putrid suspect. Our house you truth of that and you know deity that is our hero stole Aum. The only thing to do is give McCaw and numb. Your be your very kind nick here's the deal man I thought. You don't you could've used a profanity. You could've made a fool out of yourself. You could evolve hurt someone you could have been cut everything that we've seen in this trump campaign for the last eighteen months. Where people have abused their opportunity to either jump onstage or tragic the microphone away from the governor. Or try to is you know and take over his personal space you do any of that and so while what I'll tell you is is that if there is a way that you're gonna protest something. That to me is an honorable way to protest. And stop by the way and by the way it. In your home tonight who feels more like the king the queen you look. Or your wife after your wife's name last week and her courage and then your heckling today who is is the King of the Hill right now. Well Nancy is the more conservative one I mean I'm like I ate some kind quote CR I'm very comic comic talk and service period because I have. Some libertarian tendencies I guess like Erik Paul someone else like the man three comes to us on all an act that's kind of where. You know I might differ a little bit went to Republican values of most libertarian values. Salt. You know I don't know you know who it is what it is. Well you guys are a lot of fun and I hope I get a chance to you guys again at some point we'll still have time to get to that Bernie Sanders town hall meetings they say about it at the end at about twenty minutes. We'll probably is it that out of it and meet his wife at one point I got into the last week that that was timely adjustments to break I just wanna be an insult but I hope packages to see you guys again. I'd like you know I chaos she really. Like listening here shawl and and if he'd always been a conservative and always been listening to talk you know all talk radio Ol and com do a lot of different things. And I you know we were behind but yet you don't audit I'm power at all. But Roy Nichols took the other protest. The DiPietro protest. That did the DP major protest with a. A together he should have done that in the I think they call the police under well let let's look at we're so glad you called them pastor questioned him laughter pockets within richter. We we need to break or else we're going to be here in print it we're going to be at Entercom jail unless we break the expect lists.
