Apparently was quite the get wasn't on ABC last night. It was on ABC. I counted down the seconds until that interview came on. And they did not allude to. They did not tees. Or they did not mention. The last five minutes of the show. And the bombshell. They were sitting on an ABC so. Did you watch Travis I did odd about that in rooms greet the interview is phenomenal. And they wait until the last five minutes. An Amy. Rob wrote Brock says. You know anything. About what was gonna happen Nancy Kerrigan like you think back it's all over now and Tonya Harding. Essentially. Admitted that she did it essentially. Travis would you disagree now no lie I had the it is like but in terms of not. Coming out saying yes I did it but coming out saying. Here's what she said she's if you can find it Scott because my Giant Eagle. I. She said. I he knew. They were talking about doing something. And I heard them saying. Well what if we take her out. And I thought all what are they talking about what you would need to take anyone out because I'm gonna be number one I don't need your help I don't need anyone taken out and that Amy looked at her and goes. So you're saying you overheard them talking about quote taking her out or taking her down. And then when the hit to the knee happened. You're telling me you didn't put two and two together and you could kind of you know when people either look up and laughed. So is well she does I'd put it together like. Like four days later. And you can see Amy going. And it makes cents. It's over isn't she into she's now married in a non abusive relationship for the first time as a son. Nancy Kerrigan was like and we move on I'm sick of talking about the as well it's talking about it. That's what you're known for but the aster that she said do you feel like you're known. For the assault. And she goes I'm a two time Olympian. She said that was just hand it Samie. I. Was an Olympic skater. I forgot there's one moment Scott back during the Olympics as you forget Nancy Kerrigan took second just post tickled. An ox on a bike you'll skated in that little sixteen year old Russian policy and skated in and took it like to. Thousands of one billionth of 1%. And there's a moment where the cameras are on Nancy Kerrigan and there waiting for rocks on by you'll come back out after her scores were released and she was crying and excited. And Nancy Kerrigan goes on camera. I don't know why she needs time to put any more makeup on she's just gonna cry at right back off. It. On some of the story is. Security was not all good. And Tonya Harding was not all that. I thought it was fascinating. To read it correctly and I think just about everyone in Kansas City watch that darn thing last night because it's interesting. Is it about that episode. That occurred I mean remind anyone 24 years ago I don't now that we still care I don't know. They said that that figure skating competition. Between Nancy and Tonya on the ice. Was deep like one of the most watched is not the most watched. Olympic. Thing. In the history of the Olympics when they were removed yes and it showed around the globe everyone's stopped what they were doing to watch those two women skate. And as you were called Tonya Harding fell on her face and it was just a disastrous was at the Olympics where she wanted the set. It's. Was that a deal that was at the Olympics and she squandered and she'd been smoking she hadn't been training. To know why I find this so eminently fascinating. But I'd do that does that have anything to do with the fact that this was something. Not from your childhood but for me earlier told it was before OJ. During a simpler time might think and you have these characters involved that are just absolute losers one of the quotes from her mother you cannot make this up. You cannot make this up because they did tracked down on her support him. And they said they heard did you beat her. And she said well I did Peter with her Bryant's. I spent two with her breasts. And there's a witness that it blocked and Scott said she was beating her senseless. With this brush. And there was a comment made about how Tonya Harding was always called trailer trash and the bomb who's now in eighty. The smoke and drink and crazy lady looks right at the camera and she goes. And we were not trailer trash we had a nice new trailer. And you see your daughter if human being given new trailer camp Dietrich you'd be your daughter. I just anyway you missed it that it goatee or on demand and go to free. Shadows. And just pull off ABC and it's it's there. You know your says she also still skates and I don't know why I thought because she's aides to. She's put on some weight she sprightly fifty something and or 47. She's outrage and she gets out she is not my age you're itching eyes severed she gets out on the ice. And is twirled and flip that around and skate around like it's nineteen. Still kick a soccer Bolden are you really comparing kicking a soccer ball to spinning up and around in the air at age 47. Probably. Forty pounds heavier than you wore a home like she did that trip now to an Islamic terror. Reactions still coming into president's proms reported vulgar comment during a meeting on immigration we'll have more and acts. 230 Syrian Kansas City from the KM BZ newsroom I'm Kara remarks are the president sent to a used an expletive in referring to Haiti an African countries during a meeting on immigration yesterday doctor Henry Ford and Haitian who's the chief of surgery at children's hospital Los Angeles.

That her skating is her only ticket out of the daughter and that is a direct quote. During an interview. That it's her only ticket out of the gutter. There's like a cadence in communication.

It over to will be stresses try to commit to Iran after 5 o'clock news story here from channel five. Is this a fair sent its. The drunk driver. Who hit and kill. I Johnson county sheriff's deputy has been sentenced to twelve years. Six months imprisoned. The judge sentenced 39 year old Adrian Espinoza Flores. To the maximum time allow. In October. Espinoza Flores pleaded guilty to reckless second degree murder. And three counts of aggravated battery in connection with the death of master deputy Brandon Collins norm that's tortilla. The crash happened on September 11 2016. Collins a twenty year veteran of the Johnson county sheriff's department and father of two girls. Was killed when his car burst into flames on impact if I'm not mistaken this was on 169. Member of the Conakry out burned so bad you could see. Exactly where his car was what it was when it was. Court documents state that Espinoza floor as blood alcohol level was double. The legal limit. When it caused a crash that killed columns in the treatment not once excellence excellence. The deputy was conducting a traffic stop on US highway 69. In Overland Park to pick up truck driven by Espinoza Flores. Ran into columns is parked patrol vehicle from. So your driving drunk. At 6951. North and from the state and your hammered. You plow into the back of me. Patrol car and you kill assures deputy. Whose only mistake was actually trying to enforce lol and you get twelve years in prison. Where you know giving. We. Have a problem. With sentencing. Guidelines. In this country and there was a conversation earlier today about five young men. Who sexually brutalized a sixteen year old girl taped it and put on FaceBook. And the young men that were caught and charged and convicted in that case will serve I believe three months. So this is not the first time we've had this type of discussion. I am always astounded when it is a drunk driving death how low. Those sentences can be. I think we coddle truck driving in America. You don't see this and other countries. Correct you do not. Drive drunk in Europe you just don't do you are young go to prison so that. When when my when my brother and I went to Germany in 2006. I was drinking obviously backed them. Column we've rented a car and we had with this for the entire week and a half that we were. I would not drive that car if I had a drop of alcohol for fear that the Pulitzer I would pull me over. I mean think about that. I wouldn't have a huge drop of alcohol. When my brother and I went to dinner. I had a soda my brother would drink a beer and I'm sure their rates are lower of. There because of it is. The added issue you have in the United States right now. Is now more than ever there is no reason. To take that chance. You have the number you have list we we have education that we didn't have back and maybe the seventies and. Services is that there's a guy in Kansas with over twenty do you wise yes he lives in Easton. Which is west of Weston. What is he has eighteen do you wise. Remember that story leavenworth county was an ease in Kansas. He has eighteen do you guys he still walks of Freeman. Is it was do you wise saying that you know every. Personally gets pulled over with with the bureau their breath. Needs to be handcuffed and taken off to prison that same although in Europe. They don't screw around. They do not screw around but in this country it's almost felt like I am only in I mean there are legends Roger you know this. About George Jones the lake country singer. No show Jones hit. If you focus his wife had taken the keys away from he was a notorious. Alcohol there. He ended up getting it do you why because he wrote me. Riding lawn mower to the liquor store you could still hurt someone on Iran against UK. As the modern day he'd just. I mean at and we tell that like it's folk lore or something to laugh about it we do laugh about it. Their house to be a metal I don't know how I feel about the lawnmower or the bicycle I think that's silly. We have listener Texan. And wish if they're listening they would call maybe three days ago we were talking about something access. And they were in a hotel in Kansas City with a colleague from out of town I think they said Boston. And they were talking about music and the guys that you know what I have that CD out my car hang on I'm a Democrat so they're sit in the bar. This guy runs out to the car to grab his CD is sitting in the car shop around for the CD and an officer comes over and says. Can I asked to do answer. And he's someone I'm going back and I had grabbed CD. He got it do you lie. He was cited for being in the car does listener. Science learning in parts just last year she's hitting very well known hotel. And she said I am an advocate for. Safe driving I I am anti drunk driving but shouldn't be happy middle somewhere. You know you hear people passed out in the in the front seat of the car Scott and is it true that the keys in the ignition and you're not driving. You can still beside. Yes. It is true. In fact about no mistake rod in the keys are anywhere in the car. You merger. Even if the car is not all you word right.

You go out to your car to sleep at all. You're in the driver's seat I think that's important rod Wright as agent if you're in the driver's seat. Let's say it's nine degrees outside like it was last night. You turn the car not on but enough to activate the heater. So your batteries on you know the call has the keys in the equation does have the keys in article Bedanova. If you turn the heater off. So that you can warm the cards you can go to sleep and sleep at all for four hours wake up and drive home at 6 o'clock in the morning sir. Do you why public intoxication. I think it's DUI rod. It's definitely that at that point is an system MoneyGram for the city's at that point they're just trying to bring in revenue. That's what that is driving revenue net drunk driving. While you're in the driver's. Keys in the ignition. I knew a guy and taxes was at a party same kind of deal at a party. Went to leave. Got the car the car was parked parallel parked on the street in like a residential maybe yeah I got in the car when it matters that have no business drive you know. And didn't have the keys in the ignition. But put the seat back go to sleep sure cop pulled up and is like hell you doing sec or sleep it off Fargo BA got arrested for Dior.

Received twelve years and six months in prison 25767798. JLO. Erich pica managing. Or that area liberty gear ups aren't a bit a bigger parts aren't. I no problem pegged at the quick point and I say they're not being sent directly that I'm very anti. Drunk driving but about fifteen years ago. I've ever think and maybe we are met office or higher ranking officer driving in Kansas city police department. I've been careful who. On forty highway around blue blue ridge all the audibly quiet. He was stronger than a golf. And beat or the police got there the process the accident. And I'll probably be heard anybody here killed anybody beat or complete got there. He had. College of the law run over to the beard joint up pre. I expected beer on it was pre cruiser. And gotten shot gunned down a couple appeared orbit it administer that EU lie and a breath life curriculum I believe he beat that. You. Other all kinds of shenanigans that go on in that regard also is the micro adequate point. You know these people are around these little motor scooters that are under a hundred these series event common knowledge. At argued beaded Eli Eli and over here. You don't need it drivers like you don't leading. Aren't that's right they drive they are you right investment gets worked for a year. Or however many years you'll want to avoid the law. I you'd be back at them ever go to my two point. I think that's common knowledge I mean you get a deal why. My understanding is they take your license away for year. You couldn't get to work one of freeway well one of four ways get a ride from a friend you can walk. Right from for an army and by that I mean Hoover taxi whatever friend. You can walk ride a bicycle or you get a vest. Because you do are you sure. Possessed yes because you know Joseph as best I guess those are don't Brantley and not all of them. The one he has is a heavy Italian. In its Mayan motorcycle. Tight. It is my understanding you do not need a license. To drive basically a motor scooter. I'd like to double what it further into wide Joseph rides invest. It. I'm getting news alerts at the street told me about during the break I think we should mention it's we don't make it into an answer right now the Wall Street Journal. The Wall Street Journal. Without question the fairest. Most unbiased. Newspaper in America and probably the most thorough. The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Donald Trump paid a porn star 130000. Dollars. In the summer of 2016. To keep her mouth shut about it consensual sexual relationship the two of them had allegedly. One year after he married Milan. That is from the Wall Street Journal. The president trump paid a porn star named stormy Daniels. You've got to be kidding me 130000. Dollars to keep her mouth shot. About a relationship that they had. After he was married to Maloney which is that really her name. Real name Dana relayed that story should not one accurately zags loans to the newsroom a Caremark. Campy easy.
