I focus you. You know, I'm not a huge fan of interviews, because you know it to find so many interesting people, I'm lucky to have today a good friend here,
It's fun of me on Fox and a five z thinks I laughed at everything which I do. The grave great God fell from the great got. Show the five and everything else Gregg thanks for coming on the show we appreciate it. I just wish everybody could. Turn our conversation before this started. Don't understand how much you hate doing, interviews and what's interesting is I am totally with you one hundred percent. When I was doing red eye, I did everything I could to get out of interviewing people We should come up with a list with Workpeople to interview generally These are the worst right because it did think they really want to talk about themselves and not about the project, so they do completely miserable back. He was people, then you musicians, who have absolutely no wisdom. All in all. Looking for is parts which is fine with me baby it, and then you have your politician.
Your phone is not, although the words it, in other words, the worse, you have. Your talk, show host friends with bullets were basically you have to do it as a favour, which is what you like the interest go like everyone to do this crap again, but that new dear me, I got it You hear that he now it's funny, because it makes the same. I have to say proud of. We need a mutually assured destruction clause like I promise not to ask you to intervene if not it bother you you don't bother me. We just quite others book The, however, for an shown, its greatest tells me, take you back to the worst. We would it have. You are or authors than about books. Yet and that's why we're people ask you. What's it like to be an author, I go. I have no idea I've, just a guy who writes books, don't even it This is seriously the greatest problem, however, but this is This is why I have you want, because I think what
just in your show is obviously not greasy observed a runaway success me. I think one of the secrets of the great God felled show that people don't know is that We actually have a more substantial audience that a lot of these liberal talk to your house, but it's almost ever talk about outside of the trade magazine you right institution and we haven't been a guest, and you show in knowing you now for a while. Behind the scenes really are like when these guys, you breaks the fourth wall down like there's. Almost no secrets on your show we do this and cutting that's exactly we were talking about for the jihad, is so hard to find interesting people in an interview. You know any shit. You know what I learned and it's a good point in your brain the reason why the Gigi show is good is because none of them that we don't have quote celebrities- everybody. There is more interesting, tiresome way more interesting than anybody. We Kimmel has cats funnier than anybody
a balance has an altogether we cycle through whether it is your new or its Joe Mattie or chose aware whoever he was the last time you alone, but just great, but the only thing, but I p m, but it ends up being smarter and funnier it any group of celebrities- and I think that's why people like it in and in answer to the report by the court walk. I talk about stuff that that happens. It's him. Everything. To me, the fact that I didn't know that cows- could be male or female, I make no. The house can only be female. I didn't I got the big we male and female, and don't I love it. I didn't know that Martin Luther King painting, I remember king pin, I got you wanna get. I look the cow, we don't Africa, we gotta remember that one debate be the family, for we may have to cut down without folks. Just yet
Where, legally, I let him take but you would. I also thought I also thought that Beale was its own animal. That's stupid, like I have a problem. That's good have approved One well scary, agrees thing this and we are here for your book. You get important business, thickened doc, because my audience loves you, I'm a big fan of you as well, so we have this book out here. I have a copy of the plus self help for people who hates Well, now: listen because breaking down the fourth Wallen Gregg can tell you this ninety nine out of a hundred houses where they read the book and they got a one age and your sheep with questions there I promise you. I actually read most of the book I got to about six percent of it. You know I did I'm not kidding I'll answer. My questions are based on what I this is not a pr she that is damn Bonci, knows hand. It notes. So when I see you a person, I want you to put actual work into this. This is preoccupy you impressed yeah because
most of the time. I don't do that at me. I read I dont Red Fox NEWS books as much as I read like other books, because there are always like historical stuff like kill, needs books, never reach. It's never really adds up I'll kill me nobody Ya'Ll about Greek exact and you carry we every time. Riddick Syria is his paper, blacks, you're, like the odd during his daughter, your boxer, number one it's ridiculous and he just walked around the office with a backpack all the time trying to say do you could buy and sell us. Why are you here Gregg seriously later view in him? A very few. People do as much like you do. The five you do. The great got fetch me kill me the do does Stop we're ridiculous! You up this again. Here's one! Always you Emily Danny hatreds fan that AIDS is family of this group about an export comes out of Chernobyl. Do
Do you have created all right, so I hate self help. Books too. There's only Two I read that I thought were really worth their time. Is the road less travel which, like a billion people, read, and to follow what right now that the people of a lie with the great book, but most self help books are kind of like so they know nobody's gonna do and it sounds cutesy. So when I read your title right self help for people whose wait so I got our I like. Actually read this book in European PR person sent me a hard copy, we're just gonna like like the pdf file, so why what about this book? I know the secret I've seen it, but what about this book is different than the twelve that book here well, I think it's because I dont I'm not a self help personal. I worked against. I worked in lakes, service magazines. Health and not gave a vice like in everybody's
This is why some weird they're just weirdos self help authors tend to be really kind of creepy eye. When you meet them, I'm not. I consider myself creepy. I consider myself a normal person who wrote a self help book based on kind of like this simple wisdom. I was ok. Let me back up his am I going to write this book. I was gonna write about cancer, culture and mob rule, but I realized I was giving any solutions, and meanwhile I was dealing with my own issues- would cancel culture and mob rule. In my own life, I was going and social media too much I was screwing around on Twitter. I was drinking in tweeting and I decided like ok before I do everything anything in the day. I'm gonna ask myself is: two plus or minus sure before I tweet? That thing? Is this a plus or minus? Before I send an email to the producer. Is this what's your minus or that snort Let me comment to one in my coat that's, what happened I started doing and I started thinking. Well, you know it. Maybe this is
the answer? To all? Did the I'd like by book proposals? The net they all become kept became like the chapters the I'll go like this. Could the solution for these problems and so obsessed with and that's what it was a boy down to like every day you gotta make a choice is plus or minus and its basically providing top speed, on your decision making, so every decision you make is just a little better and the eldest decide adds. Isn't I can't I can't even describe my book. This is why What did abuse shocking authors sack? No, no, you Eddie I'm going to describe your book better. You can, because I actually have it that the motto my hand written note. They actually read the damned book. As you know, to explain the plus, because I gotta tell ya: like I've read the chapter, will you write about planets such simple concept, you're like Why hasn't anyone thought of this before? Like always what I am about to do? Actually gonna benefit or hurt me like this. This is not
located and yet I've never heard of these points are simply no seriously like mistake on the part of Europe. But that is especially Malaysia. Taboos tweeting, which was another question later so across that when we already that got to tell you it's funny, is it because I just never had this? It's called it just called impulse control baby a combat, a cut in wisdom. I never thought of it, but I thought you know what plus or minus everyday system, but I make like ok so locates. It lets him. Why Billina? I want to she's doing something that kind of bugging me, and so maybe I'll just point out this NGO bit plus or minus that's easy one MIDAS don't do and then you just going to cruise along and then there's something else. You sit down. There's something on Twitter. That is, you are beyond belief. Jimmy killed, Jimmy Camels, saying something
stupid. It's a guy in a retweeted, make on a pact Oswald, all these losers, plus or minus ago. This is gonna preoccupy you for an hour. You gonna check this see what happened. Somebody's gonna call you and take great good twitter minus skipping. Sometimes you can think like. If you wanted to be, if you think it's gonna be a place, you can wait, may I tweet myself into an email and then I look at it two hours later in a by stopping it's funny out. We did, but it permits the drum. I know I can say about it that one it's it's really simple, but smarter, Fighting with Paul right now is my producer ripe. So this morning, she's now I want you in our hands a frustration biogas, my my wife, I'm sorry. I left by the way your dedication to your wife we hold on. I gotta read this folks. This is great this Greg's dedication and the book. Obviously, the plus self help for people who pay itself out make sure you pick it up. Amazon pointed up to later. It is about Musa design. What's your name,
If some lady, I know that's the greatest, sorry so Gregg to your plus or minus so this morning, we're in this battle right. I did my regular shall be ass. Edwards about this speech. I don't. I don't want to do anything like that, so we're going back and forth like ok. Do I come with some wise, ass common right now is this. If I were to take it s now, if I would have read your book before, I would a bit Much better shape lay enough. She still mad at me, because it was clearly a negative to be a wise ass. So I which Peter would adopt your approach for all including me. Do you know Joe it's interesting will you you work a lot from home and I've during the pandemic. I've worked a lot at home, and so I had to do like I did you like it as soon meeting about a month ago. This is a great story about being married and working, so I'm at home and generally when you're in an office, you have a different tone, a different set of
tools like when you're dealing with eighty and your computer screwed up. You talk to the Idee guy. At least I do and not the best kind of tone and it's a dude hey, get this thing to work. What is going on and do not tell me to unplug plug it back in exemplary, did no. No, no you. We block me out of my account, you put it on its own I'm setting a presume call in my wife is here, and I'm talking to Eighty- and she was looking at me in horror, she'd, never see, Gregg never seen worth Gregg before she never saw great work, and it's like is that sees that what it is well that's what it is. I am sorry that he and I don't mean to distract you. My wife tells me you know I I I mean a lot of different businesses. Bond GINO report, parlor everything my wife's I swear she hears me on she's like
What do you think this is exerting prison guards? She's my secret service get stuff tat. That was her only job. We worry about the feelings that acute sees the waiter. She was shocked. Restoring Y Y got up and walked outside got into a car in droves. I teach might have even written. A man had because she was gone for like three hours and it was just like she could. I think she discovered it was merited like Jekyll High being the other thing. I bet given that this is wrong, and I bet this happens to us. I talked to Jesse about this locked away when they say stop talking to be like a paneless or a hopes on your to me, like I'm, not this policy, but we indicated she says a save reg, not a candle, was on the five. Is someone worry need
the greatest. Without a court room dude what she'll funny, I believe that is, skills that you use on a panel will are actually good for a relationship it. Nobody, simply because you want to look at your wife. You want to pretend that or her lawyer when you're originate city trying to make her argument better, but it doesnt work because it works. If you just have to shut up answer, mine is and then do too little Rick and then it will become almost instinctive but its opening. All, have the same problems and its it, but I think the working is the same for all guys who are working at home right now. The pandemic, their wives or atropatia reversed their husbands and the work. When the what whitefish working you see her working and that's it then too, so it's kind of I didn't know dispersed is it might even be more attractive? I know it's less attractive for my wife to see me work.
That's definitely interactive her. She says she hates it. When I got a cracked, the whip with somebody companies, we run she loves. It some good date night ferocious worthwhile. But after that we ve changed like this is crazy. She says she doesn't like it, but she I know she likes. It said she deftly later when I boss mode comes up by this is more about your birthday again. Folks picked it up, plus Gregg got failed self for people hate self help. Gregg with one of his funny looks on this. You know the book is its I know we're talking about and what kind of joke it up. If you have a lot of really good stuff in there, that's, I think, deeper than you'd let honour. I don't want to scare people by pretend that it's like a philosophical, but some great stops. You talk about this and I have heard you say this on the five quite a bit too. And of two ideas and gas gray eyes there ever been a time in human history where this tree, is more evident. I mean right now: it's either shut down the economy. We want people dead or lot schools forever or you definitely want teachers dead. Can you
blame it. Cuz actually really sick. You here in this after the other one. Is you want you there you want to punish protest, you want, you want to hurt peaceful protesters. What's the other side of that prison, if you, if you want justice, our jacket law and order screw it go to the ones you use is no better. Imprisoning two ideas means there's only tooth there's only two stances in an issue nor We their lot the environment or your for new We are power, you can be built nuclear power, lovely environment. So it's dickie dividing it. I'm trying to think like you, ok this would you can be for peaceful pro. Testing and want law and order, but what they say is what line order. You are going to be violence against peaceful protest,
now. You want law and order, and you wanting bear out the violent people and protect the peaceful protesters. So the prisoner to ideas makes it impossible for us to have a discussion. Because it immediately demonizing your your opinion puts it in a prison and says: oh you wanna. You want to open up the economy. And people are gonna know we can open it be. We can have bull, we could open up the economy and save lives. There's gotta be a risk, but so the prisoner to ideas is designed to get us to argue with each other instead of cooperate. This is the power of economics and nothing can get off track, but no, it's studying it. As my passion, my whole life- and you know, economists, it what's the old joke, you know Unita or one armed economists Gazelle always tell you on one hand that they'll never give you an answer, but the benefit economic strategy I write exemplary couch in answer. Is it does our shoot away? Cost benefit in awaits now
black or white. Like nobody says. Do I use the example of the time you know in the winner? Nobody ever says you hey it's here. No heed brother not really everything's about the more just how much do you was, but nobody says that with these lockdown now it's your exact example the prisoner to ideas where, if you say that you dare When your mouth and say to someone tat, you know the economy down. People are killing themselves were seeing high school kids drugging themselves in committing suicide Redfield set it yesterday, CDC doc. You know, wishes kids losing a year of education? Have you wait this? You want so what you'd brow you definitely want of dead and you are like what is that not a fair question at its a mechanism to shut you down. Having one more thing, I am your interview, but I noticed this happening you. What about what happens? If you would media matters you sense something on the five where you were just couching an answer and weighing both sides. I felt like wants this guy dad. I saw you like it rots on this loser peace, a judge
our big and wide I then piled on, but that's kind of what you're talk is alright. It's funny easy. You make you Maybe you started out with the idea of economists that that is what is lacking a why most mostly speed thinkers berry shallow in their skill. Set. Anybody got an economic background or likes economic understands cost benefit it now sis- ended, exist everywhere, it's everywhere, but like ok, celebrity movie star there's a musicians, reporters it they're, not an economics, None of these skill set. They can't do it, they weren't taught in school, but you mean you remind me of another and never another theory. I came up with its called game over theory where it like the old video game, when a story about was really short the games in last long, it didn't matter if it did not memory, when you would you died in the video game. You just started over right, starring role now with new video games,
the story. Development is so long that you have to say, because you know want to start over the next day the these the way they talk about the pandemic and about the riots and about from its of game over every day. They start over with the same talking point as if you ve never talked about it, took twenty tweeting home. I gotta go yes, it's been forty years, we're on chapter eight, now you're still in the practice and also its like the pandemic. We're just words it lets you you're talking about going back to school. Did someone say: well, we just have to make sure that the children are safe and it's ok, so we ve moved on from that like it. In their head. It's always at the end of the day the gate to trot ports are raised and they start over with the same argument, which is oh, we need to worry about the children. We ve already incorporated that into the cost, benefit analysis you moron and its it also with non violent protests, persons, violent protests, the first. The first argument is the last
You know what everybody has the right to freedom of speech agree. I know what we're talking about the looting and the burning in the hour said I know, but the mostly peaceful protesters than ever right to speak. I know, but we ve already incorporated that in our thinking when we are trying to arrest the violent people you idiot, but you so you see, like a game over the date for them, they can't think that bought barn advanced. So the game is up. Were immediately and they just start over again the myth of city best Rollin at rock up the hill every day. That's what happened When you're a conservative or liver, there. You have to start work every day with these people, and I don't know they know they're doing it but their side is green knowledge to great analogy folks, we're talking a great got felled, there are, I got through in a couple hours, it's really terrific. It's called the plus grey. I felt there, it is right here: Amazon bars are noble, bookstores everywhere they take. A quick break, will be right. Back with great God fell to show you. Buy nets. Red list in the last few months have taught us which really important life and also taught us what we need to eliminate or change snow different for business.

act. My interview with Gregg, I felt quite I want to welcome back Gray got failed. Authors are really fantastic new book, the plus. Please go pick it up support greater really. The book, your zip, through its really fast, what a great insight great you talk about in the book you bring up. Is it This is cancel culture you get into it, and I you aren't Tucker the other night and he had a little bit of a disagreement with talker right about chemical. I'm with you on this. A hundred percent have been all that I'm mad, mutually assured destruction guy. If the left is going to say tat It's you set out when you were fourteen are clickable now, when you're, forty, seven or whatever they are, and there's no apologizing and no redemption than those are the rules than those rules apply to you and when they apply to you, you'll get how stupid they are. Tucker seem too. Secondly, a little bit if you could elaborate on that, and I think the reason why, disagrees. Is he's soap removed from social media and it's amazing. He doesn't care, he doesn't care.
Doesn't give a damn: it's like it. If they come after me, like I don't care in liking helps. Maybe somebody will tell them about it later, but I don't think you bet he's even aware of it if you're living in this in its other world you're on it I'm on it. We know that you, ruined. If anybody tat, I I believe that every I believe that we should all be sharing the risk. So we make it, later for these losers, but at the same time I realized that's not enough and we A mutually assured distrust I loved Scott Adams. Had the idea like, if someone is trying to get you fired from your job, you should be able to try to get them hired from their job, so you need you like the dastardly transparency, when somebody's coming after you to buy where they work and then call there and then have people call there, because it is. Skin in the game. They're not gonna. Do this and to your point He assured destruction make sure they had seen it again and how its missing, but did you notice, like every problem in life, is based on
not having skin in the game. I was thinking about the Corbett. Stop all the people criticising trump never were critic. I see him in the beginning, dating put dating, take any risks and in making practical advice, Pelosi never said anything. The left didn't say anything to now: there they have criticism when they did many students, and you think about the mobs. Amid the people that are level are worry about the violence still live in those cities. You now. You're, not like. No. When I was talking about what happened in my neighborhood, it was there, people that would like so white and its outcome. The skin and again I also allow the salient on the five when you I think it was one you and I the tyre you know, you're always kind of you. You laugh alot, you know, but sometimes you get really fired up and I saw it I mean you know, no one, you pretty well you that was the jet like. You were really passing. Don't tell me this isn't happening wanting. We can debate and react, that's what this shows about, but don't sit,
estimates that I live in the city, that's being I mean you were really pissed in on your skin and the game. You're, not infallible, beheld skin in the game and he bent Japan, these Hammurabi codes. Is that works? If you build a house and collapsed, like you were We're still live in the same type of houses and believe it or not those ass. It were built pretty damn good. I think you're right, it's the people out there twitter? They feel, like all I'm insulated by my liberal label and one will come after me and I agree with you a thousand percent that once these rules start to take out some of their people by these ridiculous rules, we all know are stupid. They realize lay emeralds or stupid, so you're gonna get worse Dewey. Do you have a hard time reading to lead? I have like three of his books and I I know this is off topic now he's no. My reasons is he's the weirdest here's a weary style on Twitter, yeah really tweets he's
he's a good guy, but if it like us. You know about the conversation you what I had before the show. I'm regard too. So I like that, how collapse, if you can, after collarbone twitter, he'll eviscerate you forever and he'll. Never let it go I'll talk about for twenty years and he'll, never forget it, but his book, the black one, is just a lack of genius like I've never seen any. He had. He did this like launch. No look, and I guess you figured all these success, people. Have this one thing in common ethical: find anything except for the fact that they all collected opportunities whenever they could they want to these your pardon eventually dish met? Someone is Pino conclusion that a lot of this is just lock. You made yourself was just genius, but you know it's because he's a these obviously deeply philosophical guy when it becomes I've. Gotta Agraea, twitter but, like I said,
your your book as a lot of this stuff in there. I want you to doubt the downplay you may get other points weaken a tie in your book, even though you make it a kind of an easy to relate to fashion Craig spoke again. The plus variable now go pick it up votes you make this point. I love Joseph Schumpeter, who always said capitalist we're going to China, so the seeds of its own destruction, because it's so successful of a system when allowed to flourish there. People start to Otis things! You write this in your book and in the north the exact same way that this is why these twitter mobs work because we're successful, nobody's worried about food because palms, obesity right, which is too fat. We tat nobody has to work on a farm twelve hours a day. Even you know it's just the union are forced to do it and you make this brilliant pointed This is why twitter mobs work, because a lot of Kids are so damn board. Nothing to do so. They just joined a damn twitter most a great point he ate. It is, I think, almost like ambivalence and boredom are the biggest billions in and young life,
I mean it, it's like it. When you see a specimen there, you see that the twitter mentality, by the way, has train them to think this kind of rage I'll overlooked. Things are anything is now natural behaviour and so neither on the streets. And now you see these under these gender warriors. Let's say that call them social justice, gender warriors where it's mostly men who now and if I as women, and are almost all white, which is interesting, these black mud, like matters the most agitated violent people, are white, which I find o areas in sad but anyway, by on that day, now it's now kind of created, almost like a mental illness or amend, or, let's say, a mentality where their income constant rage, their in constant rage, and they can't stop, and I think it's from out of boredom they dont have. Maybe they don't you didn't, have a skill set their meaning
maybe they don't have much of a future. I and I don't want to. I dont- want to give them an excuse, but maybe they have got to get everything in life. You're never gonna have to worry about anything except will they have of a livelihood or a career that their proud of, and they took ginger studies right, didn't have a career that actually is great wisdom in in gratitude and achievement. If you, if you're in academia, only what social justice all that's left for. You is to scream into the Boyd on twitter or torture federal building in Portland, because you have nothing else. It's like they created this. This boredom creed, this world, but there now trapped in, and I think it's real and it's actually a threat to us, which is sad. You know one of the things you bring up in the book to is there never ending search to find things to be pissed off about now Gregg you and I are
recently, smart governance and on those Stephen hawking, but we get the idea I gave you. Genuinely outrage you shouldn't have to find a subject. Be out right like if someone you win the day, holidays, you're, pissed, off you'd. Only way to my outraged about this on, like that's the interesting thing about outrage, cultures are so bored they have to face of the Pope. Examples. The Redskins like when you native Americans about the Redskins nine out of ten relating to parents created, honours the reds. You know it eight honours our heroine effort. Is this a bother me so only one out of ten actual native Americans is even remotely offended about this and yeah you're right. You ve got some eighteen year old, snugly wearing small roasting kid limited Mama's basement with no job, never gotten his hands dirty and his life has never had to work on of marble. Actually feed himself like real men, do and he's like direct kids, I'm fewer. Yes, I'm theory and hearing this is like everybody keeps making fun of
women calling them care, and I was one of them, but mostly Karen's. Then it's not that it's not a ginger, think its own, I think I think it's almost you stop exclusively white left this thing and are the ones that are making a big deal over things, and you know it's funny. They are actually culturally approach. Creating black lives matter and black like matters was there so data. So I do believe that it black, like vat as there are authentically upset people and I've, seen them yelling at white. Let this then shot up now. Stop there that crap in its there's. You see these videos now more in Twitter, of a black women screaming like why left is taking you like when they were looting. Taking stock from them are going not get. I love that eleven. I love on twitter when people into in your eye in the outrage theatre when they tweet
I'm shaking I'm real, literally shaking they say literally literally, face lit up literally said no you're, not you're, not thinking you're, literally shaking. If you were in a car accident or nine point zero, earthquake, more YO, r or home invasion. You are literally shaking because comedian made a joke on Twitter. You jack ass. They are Jaguar I listen, I know you gotta, be on your. U you gotta tonnage shows that I did one more question for you to it. One of the pot? Guess I like it, you can talk by rest. Robards is terrific. It sees our long long, former enemies, but he had a guy on in Cuba who work for the CIA is AMOS Martin Gurry, and he was talking about how initially the printing press you know during the thirty years war everybody said the printing press, so horrible people got see religion and prayed for the first time. There's a thirty year war. All these people died was awful. I bring that. Because a lot of people, I think you and I agreed or like she's? What's the point
wait around this thing. Just sought like the world is a bed net negative because of twitter right now. My what right do you think, like the printed press that maybe this it's just a short term big it in the long run. Maybe the exchange of information will make us better or really just doomed. I hope so because they sit like some real promising things here, for example, the idea of the world becoming, I mind, which means we might be able to solve things a lot faster when you got Billy involved in finding a cure for something remember cure for something remember with like looking cures for disease before everybody's working together. That would take years it may Annette and cutting back, see looking for that, might actually be faster. When you have this high minded, you got all these people interconnected. I hope that I hope that's the case, but we are living an experiment right now. We are literally live literally. We are living in an experiment with social media. We are there,
we are the lab rats, we don't we don't know how this is gonna go, that's gonna, be interesting, One of the things in your book again folks, the plus wrap it up here- You give an example in the book about this. Phenomenon, a twitter. We talk about making Kelly former Colleague Fox, we're dull black face episode, which you just mentioned and asked a question like. Was this one I'm acceptable in our history, and yet you have to go Virginia. We don't of these the Koreans, men or the blackberry scope. We still haven't figured that out any still in office. Do you like how is this legitimate twitter? How is this knowledge? It argument? You were outrage about making Kelly and you don't give a damn about who collects clatter already or brought a black face guy she it even wearing anything. She just said kind of like a silly thing, and then I was in the world's poorest he's still of peace.
Cooperating in these, are you got away with it and it simply with? Unlike us, I saw a big Kimmel on aid is story which is like he knew the basketball picture where he was gonna come out and all this other step was coming out. People means many set up. The other could get any goes. I'm gonna go on vacation I'll, be back in September, and I I can't do that you can you can't do it. I can't do that. We get camp we didn't you gotta handle that like Jesse did the other day in the five where you announced in advance. If you think there's gonna be a scandal you're going up before it breaks that right. Yes, he does that other five other that I'm going to make myself everything rebuke, brilliant, brilliant Gregg list. For joining us. I know you gotta run folks pick his book up now, the plus, by the great gray, got felt better than except did always hilarious. This book you'll get through it a couple hours. Please support this man. He deserves it. Gregg thanks a lot and I get it back. There was indeed the depression.
