Wednesday morning welcome to our broadcast good to be back with you. And thankful for. The presence of people who are committed. To helping others with their own money. Talking abouts Michael Jordan we mentioned this the other day in this broadcast. And we have a little more information about what he is doing. Which I think is an extraordinary thing it's agreed example. Of what America's all about. Sure would get FEMA. Sure we've got the part of Homeland Security. Will catch government programs. But nothing is more touching. Than human beings making personal decisions to help out other human beings. Michael Jordan. Contributing two million dollars two million dollars. To help the victims. Of hurricane Florence. In case she didn't know. Wilmington. Is the place of Michael Jordan called home. And this is one of the main reasons. These are quite burden over his former city and really the entire state that's been affected by the storms in recent days. Two million dollars is what he's contributing to relief and recovery efforts. After Florence. I mentioned Jordan was raised in Wilmington. Before he moved on to start North Carolina and the NBA. And he's been quite disturbed by what he is seen. Thought about the places. That he went you. As he was growing up. And he spoken the deaths. Especially the babies. Including the one ingesting counting. All of this hits close to home. For Michael Jordan. What he's doing specifically is contributing a million dollars each to the American Red Cross. And foundation for the Carolinas. Florence response fund. Red Cross. Is providing food and shelter to people who were displaced by the storm foundation of the Carolinas direct funds to nonprofits. In north and South Carolina. The idea behind this is to address the immediate needs but also to help out with the long term needs. That will certainly be there. You know this as well as I do how many times do you see these tragedies that occur. And it's very often. Yeah we've talked about the drive by media. Boy they really really pumped it up during the event itself. But as time goes by. Kind of fades from our memory I mean how many view. Have thought about Puerto Rico in the last day in the last week. Had conditions significantly improved there probably knocked. Because of what happens to our attention span. And it's so important to their people. Mort Michael Jordan who are willing to invest and again we're talking about his own money. And if you've contributed. Or planning to contribute that's your own money. People helping people. In this is going to be a very long process of recovery. Long process. There's also some other things the hornets are going to do the team personnel. The gathering Friday to packed thousands of disaster food boxes in partnership with the second harvest food bank. At the metro line and food lion. The hornets partnering with fanatics on a hurricane relief teachers. Proceeds from the sales of that hornet's Carolina strong teacher go to the cure foundation for the Carolinas relief fund. Those can be ordered online at hornets fan shop dot com. And again these are ways that you can. Contribute as well. So these serve. Some specific ways that you can partner with Michael Jordan. I mention very thankful for the steps he's taken. And contributing two million dollars. Ends this is the kind of thing also that provides a further incentive for. Us of lesser those of us some lesser meets. To participate to make a difference in the lives of literally thousands of people maybe even millions of people who have been affected by the storm. Speaking of the storm did you hear some of the details the impact on livestock. These these numbers are just absolutely mind boggling. 5500. Gigs killed. 5500. How about chickens. 3.4. Million. Now I haven't seen anything on this. But I would not be surprised if players a price spike as the results. Of this laws that's a lot 3.4 million chickens. That is insane. That's double the casualties from Matthew in 2016. Ends it's possible we may learn more bad news because truthfully. Some farmers have not been able to assess the damage on their property yet. By the way that figure I gave you 3.4. Million that's actually chickens and turkeys. All of this the result of the storm. The North Carolina pork council said some of the hogs drowned in floodwaters others perished from wind damage Barnes. So this is one of the things said you know we're obviously and for good reason focused on the human. Situation. With these storms that animals suffer as well. So these farmers. Have really suffered a lot. Some of this information. Comes from a note to investors issued by Sanderson Farms. Saying the flooding claimed one point seven million broiler chickens. And it's twenty million in the states. Ranging in age from six days to 62 days. Sanderson has. Sixty broiler houses and four feeder houses that were flooded. Can you imagine. There are also areas. That could be without power for as long history weeks they're running on emergency diesel fuel. About thirty independent farms that supply the chickens are isolated by floodwaters and unreachable. In each of these farm houses. Contain about 2111000. Chickens. Total of six million birds. They cannot be reached which he competes at the can be more losses year. So it should think about those people who we have lost. Also think about these poor farmers and the recovery they face in the coming days. Because this is a monumental. Task monumental task. Coming up of the broadcast will talk about some of the other news developing. Donald Trump speaking again I as attorney general and it's not good and the latest saga. In the judge Cavanaugh story. We'll discuss this more as we continue. Back of Vince Coakley radio program on the text line. Vince didn't see him present truck donated a million dollars of his own money to Florence relief. How much has Nike the NFL players or Colin knucklehead. Contributed. Okay. By the way if you liked you comment on anything we discussed during the course the broadcasts are Ingles advantage talk play and number 809 to 1110. Ahmanson's retirement planning text line. Yeah is 71307. So which one of these spectacles shall we go into next. And there are planning. We've got this one. An exclusive interview. The president's head we have killed TV. As in their kill everybody is getting into the TV business. I would put TV and air quotes. But for an bucks sexton I think was part of this particular interview. And the subject that really got a lot of attention. The president's remarks about his attorney general. I just tell you dizzy just fire this guy in stop whining. This really I mean I have been talking about this for months. This is really getting old. In the interview he stayed in his displeasure with Jeff Sessions saying I don't have an attorney general. It's very sad. If you remember. The Obama administration. How he would travel around the country Mikey was still campaigning. And acting like he wasn't president do you remember that's. Not those because there are people out there I have to know some of view. As you complain. 88 I get dragged Cuba then I didn't. And what amazes me some of the same characteristics they saw and Barack Obama and complained about. I see the same same traits in this president. But oh no we're not supposed to say there are. We have to prove our undying loyalty no matter what. If the man in your perspective is not doing his job fire him. You're not a Vick done. So in this Oval Office interview. This was one of the most ferocious broad sides. In Jeff Sessions. Suggesting that mr. sessions is a walk and performing badly on a variety of issues can I ask you the question again. If you're in charge if you're a CEO. And you've got somebody performing badly. Please help me giant Charles what do you true defiant your words. He said I don't have an attorney general. I don't have an into attorney general it's very sad. Trump told he'll TV. In this interview. I'm not happy at the border I'm not happy with numerous things not just this. So we didn't. If you're happy. You're the president all of these people serve at your pleasure Mr. President. The president's long excoriated sessions forest march 2017 decision to recuse himself. From the Russia collusion investigation. But on Tuesday he suggested. He's frustrated. By session's performance on far more than that. Charles suggested he had a personal blind spot we came to dominating sessions as the top law enforcement officer. I'm so set over Jeff Sessions. Because he came to me. He was the first senator that interests me. And he wanted to be attorney general. And I didn't see it. And low. I'm gonna lose my mind. Straight. He wanted to be attorney general and you looked at Maine dot. I don't think he's suited for this. To play a god. Kids. Danny went through the nominating process he did very poorly I mean he was mixed up and confused. And people that worked with him. For a long time to sit or not nice to him. But he was giving very confusing answers answers that should have been easily answered. It was a rough time for. I'm serious. Can explain this to me I am I mean really. I don't get it at all. Sessions recused himself under pressure from congressional Democrats. And after some Republicans said he should not take part in overseeing the Russian investigation it justice. During the confirmation hearings he failed to mention two meetings with Russian ambassador to the US. Sergey. As they. I now on announcing his recusal sessions said he consulted with the Justice Department officials over this decision and not meant to mislead members of the senate. Deputy attorney general rod resins that became the lead justice official on the Russian investigation because the sessions recuse. Russian style and also appointed special counsel Robert Mueller. After trump fired FBI director James cone. The president suggested sessions experience going to the nominating process the senate have impacted his performance. As attorney general he gets an improbable because the experience he had going to nominating when somebody asked him for the for the first question about Hillary Clinton or something you said. I recusing myself I recuse myself. Now turned out he didn't have to recuse himself actually the FBI. Reported shortly thereafter any reason for anger accused himself. It's very sad. When it. It's fairy except. Is seriously can somebody help me with this. I just don't get it. We'll see what happens a lot of people best way to do that I guess I study history and say I just wanna leave things alone. It was unfair what he did. Referring to the recusal decision and my worst enemies I mean people you know on the other side of me a lot of ways including politically of said. It was a very unfair thing he did. We'll see how it goes with Geoff. I'm very disappointed in Jack. Very. Very to support. Please. I explain this. A few text are you saying. Move on please why do you wanna move now. What did you call in and explain to be wide this is happening why this is unfolding as idiots. I would really love to know. Just fire command.

Your president of the United States act like yet. Thank you. I wanna get your thoughts. Back in the Vince Coakley radio program. Breaking news out of cherry point North Carolina where. President Donald Trump has a rides Air Force One has just touched down. Just moments ago. During the break. He is year to take a look at the damage from Florence. And I'm sure there will be a lot for him to see. The way before I ate for yet again. Issued no idea. A person with ADHD. Remember my mom used to say yeah you would forget your head to weigh in on your shoulders. And it's true merger. I think I'll probably few months ago I told you about a different minded it's just been a very supporter friend reminders him about very challenging. Times that I've experienced a different mining Peter lives in Knoxville Tennessee. I mentioned several weeks ago I believe that he has had some serious heart issues. And he has undergone heart surgery. A couple of days ago as you'd think about it I would just ask you to pray for him. I hope to have the opportunity to visit over the next couple of days some time. But he is. Recovering from I believe open heart surgery keep in mind this is a guy who's my age. So is so pretty sobering. To see this development but hopefully. You recover very soon and get back to normal. So just a favor I ask of you. Your thoughts welcome on my comments about. The president and Jeff Sessions a couple of you wanting to talk about this starting with the gene out of Greenville good morning. Good morning drove a spot since that episode you talked about memory. I yet be argued it Jeff Sessions argued were passer very quick comment about this. Cuter. Cabinet popular member read Isaiah 54 start of fourteen are. And pray that burst. That that writes terrible student council allies. Like that this woman wants an investigation. Total hire private investigator not the FBI don't wanna pay board. But the Democrats expect what birdie and they should go to Oprah on Montel Williams is Montel still operating. I'm sure they've got investigators are picked up for college. Now back to Q a session. Are you you know problems not as he tries to be controlled situation. What that Jeff Sessions. Could not could not really don't did not dismiss them because this oh given the circumstances with the Democratic Party and and your ideology and and their political approach to circumstances you know. He could not get a I'm the approved. You don't here's the other question because I've heard other people call in and suggest this. The other wild card here is what is what happens if the Republicans lose seats. In the set. Now it's I don't think that's gonna happen but what if it dies. And you don't take the opportunity now to hold hearings and have a new attorney general could you imagine what that would look like. And also the Supreme Court. The via another element of activity and so there. If god stage his hand or does not stating it is possible that maybe true. To look the liberal left wing Supreme Court justices might might vacate the that picture put aside its agencies. May KK. Trump doesn't have to do it. Do you think about that rather I'd I'd like to see apart are its Supreme Court before conservatives mad and and I was dedicated. Boy that would be pure fantasy would I don't think you are up a that it's a cut for your college Jeanne I don't think that's gonna happen but that would be quite intriguing Q imagine. How ballistic the Democrats would go would be absolutely crazy. Bernie good morning and welcome. I believe Bernie has disappeared. Oh well. Latest goal out to it seed John would be next out of Fort Mill good morning John. Yeah good morning and he'll play for that person thome with yet but open heart surgery. And the receipt that.

He had great praise for said Kenny we wish she went head Kennedy and Chappaquiddick. And the missing girl that whole fiasco. And this is like after the fact to they've got this this was such a wonderful guy. You this guy kill the woman. I mean what's it just blows my mind to this day. There's never he's never he had never been held to account injuries entire life. But I 8% of those in my get Christie it's. That he was just so they're liberal and cheeks as always. You know Islam or take the right position. On these issues. They won't give your pass on anything and you can kill people and they really don't care as long as you.

Tray dowdy as attorney general. From a break here in the upstate of South Carolina. Page leaving congress.
