And he had a great point I think I told you this yesterday care he said if Americans why do we care about a British one. And I got to thinking about. And that's a good question. And I I made the arc into the young man I said the. Cause we used to be an English Colin. She's a dentist. To. I I know mine was while that dictum of Sussex is currently big. So speculation says that Henry duke of suspects and meg and duchess of suspects are embroiled titles. Who sought sex after. It's excellent it's Earl grey and English wrecked fifty which. Now.

Like you can understand this even though you say you don't know that you do. We have never had that that he only sing even remotely close notice the only thing remotely close and not even that. We have never had a sitting president. Rise to the presidency is a single man and then Mary. During. His term that would be the only thing even an and that's still not even in the realm of what's going on over there would ever would be lovely and fun of that would happen. I'm not now it's from that someday if there was a single guy what he might see one woman racism. Because of banks and stores are really trying to write real source. It's. Where is listening to editor of the bread. It is up on where to turn it all veteran. If you miss the call I still can't get out of that I don't doll if you miss the call came and little more than an hour ago from Kohler victory. Against illegal she wants you now kick a map or march and against illegal immigration. Very oppose it would immigration. If you miss the call it is up on Twitter. And you can podcasted. It is worth here. It is four minutes of your life he will not get back. Were talking about a story here from the cancer and cancers star. An Oklahoma woman. Was on a flight from Oklahoma to Chicago. There was a delay on the flight she's. Self admitted not the smallest woman on the plane. Take that I want. But anyway she was sitting next to a man sixty years old and she couldn't help but overseas that he was. Texting friends saying I am stuck on this plane next to smelly fatty. Was talking about her. The fought was apparently so big. That a man across the aisle even soul what this man was writing about her he got up she calls him her Angel. He gets up is how many people would have done that Scott got involved bird bird be on urge you urge one out of ten has maybe warning. Gets up points the guidance as you know our switch seats not sit next year she's she's a ball tears at this point. And. I I've been on flights next to a larger person when I was coming back from my uncle's funeral in Raleigh Durham, North Carolina. I happen to be on a flight with my brother as we're coming back to Kansas City. And the woman that sat next to me was very march. Very march. And. To the point where I had even lean over towards my brother because. Curb her her body was big. But that is someone's wife that is someone's daughter and I always say hey do you know what I said to her nothing. You're damn right probable area out of high high tea and how are you yeah where you're headed on some pretzels we do walls small talk right and I'd tried to girls like Egypt. You know my mother when she flies is not the biggest person on the plane she's not the smallest person on the plane my husband. Is what six it's two three's next. You know we've tried business class he needs like Graham he. You know. I always say to myself. If that was your mug her would you want someone treating your mother like that. In life on an airplane anywhere because that's if you start thinking every day like that Scott. Or if you wanna be really rude to a seventeen year old sandwich Clark. If the second you start thinking of that situation through the eyes of what if that was my son. What if this was me. Or someone else like me that wanted to be really mean to the seventeen year old and that seventeen year old is my son. How would you treat that seventeen year old who's bagging your groceries if the whole world would start thinking in those terms we would have been a much better place. These you wouldn't do that he wouldn't do that you would think yourself I would never want someone to treat my mother like that. So why is it OK I don't know people always said fat shaming is the last least protected. Socially he what is acceptable. Understood. Well the thing. The argument though data would be unlike race. Disability. Gender. These are things aren't even sexual orientation. That this is the one thing that you can change or prevent. With a whole lot of hard work I understand yes I Anderson yes but but that's the argument for why it is certainly not a protected there must be something wrong with someone who can't was Wayne Hale and you remember this is it. Three example. Maybe about a year ago there was a woman in line at an eat fit place up and and someone was making fun of for a sexually two women in which to me just makes it even worse. And the woman's post went viral because Scott she was yes let's say 220 counts. In this line at one of these eats it goes stores. She said what those women didn't realize it's. It was a year and a half ago I was 450. Pounds. And yes I still have a ways to ago. But how dare you. I have warped. To lose that weight and I'm still working to lose that weight and it's so easy when your size zero to poke fun at someone like me. And and that piece resonated I think with a lot of people because you don't know someone's situation you just don't. Maybe this woman on an airplane. Eats for comfort and anxiety because she lost a child. No we don't you just. Don't. Now. But you have to be a special kind of jerk. To text a friend. With that woman sitting right next year and say I'm city and I'm seated. Next smelly fat. Why I mean I am almost starting to wonder. We worse today. And more and let let me let me sort of semi answer my own question. Are we worse today than we were thirty years ago. When you and I were in high school. Or is it the social media. Or is it the perceived anonymity. Or is of this idea that well you don't have to be politically correct anymore in fact being politically correct is. What is it and maybe it's not worst of it maybe it's just. Now I just you know my family says I waters and Mike Graham was a kind human being that she would say if someone was overweight she is trying to describe the track of it came up. You know you don't want talking about I don't know. She's she's stock. That's my grandma would say. And ensure it was great bigs old she's been around. You know. Big. But I tell you this this person that she sat next from a plane she's says appeared to be spurt roughly sixty years old. Which is halfway between my age and what my father would be if he was still alive today. I gearan hot damn tee and my dad cuss like a sailor he had. But my dad would have nav. In a million years as you age sixty to that's about it does a little bit. To because don't we expect someone at age sixty to be more well behaved or a little bit immature I'm not excusing it gets money and Dana listen alt. I'll be the first to tell. I have the senator's seat on that southwest flight coming back from North Carolina to exit look at my brother had windows. Yeah when this woman poked her head around the seat it was late at night so yeah plane was pretty dark. And she just said is that seat open I said yes ma'am it is have a seat let's go. And she sat down and I literally. This was me Dana when she said that I'm not kept and this was you know this is about the saints this chair and I'm sitting at a same size more sustaining that. And airlines see his yeah thinner yet. But it's roughly the same size and Maryland's which you agree art this is what happened when she sent out this is me ready. You just leaned our I don't know I was forced over. A guy I mean when she sat down my body went like this okay and then and Scott Sheen knows that exactly right that's exactly what I thought. And I I turned my brother and I said well. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to be in your space. That's all I sent in sent from hurting you know no no no no and I don't my brother and IMAP I've mouth I didn't say it out loud so. And he's like it's on camera in my Norma. And it was the longest two and a half hour flight in my life. But you know what I wasn't about to say something that partly because to your point gain and it's a good one. She. Of course as one of the first things this woman says. During the fight that man was so mean to her was. It is my worst nightmares about that Scott my worst nightmare is being on a plane because I know I'm a bigger Earl. Next to someone who is mean aren't comfortable because of me she calls that her worst. Nightmare. Now think about that. Ask you what my worst nightmare is that's not even in the top five. Thousand. You know I think if you are that size. You are so self conscious about it. Which is why it makes so much worse to me when someone and that's low hanging fruit to pick on her when someone. Is mean to an individual like that. 5767798. It's a cup into an aero quick exit I mean yeah. I go ahead. It's. Okay you were clearly going through a tunnel. Michelle in Kansas City hello Michelle Imus out. I'm I com wanna comment on your question on social media may lol. The situation worse. And aren't I teenage kids and I believe. That social media is making network that seemed like these girls can hide behind their own. What iPad whatever it may be and yet and the ugly. Messages. And I remember in school we are saying that we that they have faith and it was not nearly the level and today. Not great because this on the airplane wouldn't have said to her out loud you are fat smelly and I'm sitting next year. But it was OK for him to text it to someone else. Exactly. Exactly it is that land and the school I mean I note that not teenagers and not a go out and schooled don't help. But let's let Michelle let me interrupt for a second and I don't mean Beirut. Don't we always say that doesn't every generation say that the generation that. So seeds that are succeeds them. Is worse our parents I don't know how old you are but it sounds like your your forties or fifties. If you tell me in your thirties a majority complete. Now. Or okay but. Our parents always thought that we were gonna go burn in hell because of the music we listen to remember that and we are all promiscuous because Madonna in and friends and and I think generations have this habit. Of saying that the generation that follows them is always worse. If it is to your point about social media though. I wonder if that gives us a certain level of perceived although falls anonymity. Where we think we can just say whatever we want. Yeah yeah I think you have a bearing out I think that that is true that social media. Get that feeling that week in order that we want with no repercussion. Nobody. And Michelle thanks for the call us and has heard and I agree that people shouldn't be jerks however if you know it as you said. Why doesn't someone just by to sit out now broke a solvent excrement. That the passengers on that plane have no control over the fact that those seats are basically he what would you say fifteen inches wide. I mean. I just look at their way to those seats are too small that is not my fault that is not your fault and that is not this woman's follow. And let's say that because his flight originated out of Oklahoma we can assume although not know for a fact. May have been a Southwest Airlines flight southwest doesn't operate like you don't call that's right. You go onto the plane and you take a seat if somebody wants us next year they get to sit next you you don't get to say that ought Tutsis beast or mind. That's not how southwest works now let's say she was on united. My uncle died three weeks ago. I had to buy a ticket. Like that yeah okay. It was 488. Dollars round trip it would have been a thousand if I was really fat and needed two seats who can afford that. Install mention don't renewed in him. By 7677. And. Struck again you're going to retire earlier. Is it may have an independence I go ahead. Of that. Debate why don't. Get it. OK okay Gregory on the list of this really quick to like I gotta read this I got called fatty at my fourteen year old son's baseball game Tuesday night. By a senior citizen. It happened after she tried to parent my son and yell at him for hitting a foul ball that busted windshield. I'm sorry pure baseball parent you know you don't park. That close by act finally told her walk away and stop yelling at my son her response was maybe you should walk away fatty. I asked her if she was twelve years old and told her she needed to work on her insult sucked up. Good. And she said that said that to her how old was I said how old am waiting on the reply back you'd think sixty is old no she said in an older woman. Bobby online for about it I body.
