In today’s edition of the weekly discussion-debate with WGSO radio talkshow host Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz publisher, Stephen Sabludowsky, Trump continued to be the topic of their discussion. Trump said over the weekend that-- John McCain was not a war hero because he got caught. After making that statement, Trump has repeatedly called McCain a war hero.
Below is the interview discussion and the transcript of the WGSO-Bayoubuzz Radio Google Hangout.
CROUERE: He's really been just treated really abysmally by the media is going to, the media's been going after him the Republican candidates have been going after him, the Des Moines Register says he needs to get out of of the race. He's been blasted, ridiculed, criticized, and really been called a hater, a buffoon, a clown etc. etc., yet I'm looking at a brand-new poll that's just come out and low and behold, he's got a massive lead in the race at 24% followed by his next competitor, I think at 13%, so what's happening here, the public's not following along with the media wants
SABLUDOWSKY: Well, 24%, he's getting a lot of TV coverage, and you can have it both ways, you can't blame the media and the media is interviewing him all the time, so I think that's a large extent why, he's also a showman and so I think that's part of the reason
CROUERE: They’re not praising him
CROUERE: They been criticizing him, been blasting him
SABLUDOWSKY:There been giving him a free ride in much of the media
CROUERE: Free ride?
SABLUDOWSKY:Let me finish, let me finish
CROUERE: Free ride?
SABLUDOWSKY:I think they've been giving him a free ride, they been going to him all the time for any kind of issue and so he makes a full of himself on the stage in Iowa and wasn't just the media it was everybody else. He had an opportunity to redeem himself yesterday, the day after the event and he wouldn't apologize, he wouldn't admit that he was saying exactly what he said and instead he said well "I said this four times", that he was a
CROUERE: War hero
SABLUDOWSKY:Yes war hero but that's only after he realized what he said it will kind of embarrassment he was making of himself, this guy is a mockery. In the same poll that you're talking about Jeff indicates that he is not in any way, that he's not going to--- 62% I think was the number would not vote for him, for President.
CROUERE: In a field of 16 candidates, he's got double the person comes in second
SABLUDOWSKY:Sure, yeah, yeah
CROUERE: Let me ask you this? Would you rather be in his position or would you rather be at say 0% where Bobby Jindal is
SABLUDOWSKY:Well that's asked me if I rather
CROUERE: Or would you rather be in the position of anybody else who's in second through 16th place
SABLUDOWSKY:I would rather have the money that Trump has to be able to fund the campaign
CROUERE: He has not had one fundraiser
SABLUDOWSKY:Okay, and not be concerned about super PACs or anything of that nature. No question, I would love to be the type of situation, however, this guy in my opinion is a loose cannon. The Republican Party is having conniption fits over what he says and it's not just the Republican Party
CROUERE: Would you agree with me that he striking a nerve, that he's finding an audience whose agreeing with him about the establishment and the Republican Party, about the media, about the Democrats, and they are agreeing with his plain talk
SABLUDOWSKY:His plain talk? Well, if he so playing talk why didn't he yesterday admit, on O'Reilly--O'Reilly almost had to been him out of shape, said "come on Donald, certainly you would admit". A plain talker would have said-- "I really messed up"-- "I did not really--I was joking or I really screwed up and I do apologize"
CROUERE: And that's the normal media formula which is the point that Rush was making, normally you have the media attack a person and then you have that person grovel and say "I apologize"
Oh come on Jeff
CROUERE: And then Steve, what happens, the person becomes irrelevant. The person falls from the scene. This is truly the first time you have a guy who refuses to apologize, who doubles down and who stands firm and whether you agree with what he said about McCain or not, some people say no we admire somebody, he's not going to grovel, apologize and be politically correct
I see, so insulting, not just John McCain, but insulting Americans who fought in the war and who got caught or just Americans who fought in the war and this guy didn't fight, but he's insulting those people, I mean my God
CROUERE: Let me ask you this Steve..Does McCain owe the 15,000 people who were there to rally, an apology?
Yes he does
CROUERE: Does McCain oh the millions of Americans who are in the tea party movement that he's called hobbits? Does he owe them an apology? Does he owe the people like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul that he called them wacko birds? Does he owe them an apology? When is McCain going to apologize for all the statements that he has made--why doesn't anybody ask McCain, to make an apology for his incendiary comments about millions of Americans who are involved in the tea party movement
SABLUDOWSKY:Let me ask you question
CROUERE: Well I'm asking your question
SABLUDOWSKY:And my answer before was yes.
CROUERE: So he owes all his people
SABLUDOWSKY:He's an elected official
CROUERE: When is he going to be asked to apologize
SABLUDOWSKY:I think that he should apologize and I think that's game
CROUERE: hasn't he been pressed to make an apology
SABLUDOWSKY:While at same time, let me ask you question, when the tea party, and others and go and call people communists and socialists, when they're not--and call them wacko's, and don't you think you think that you said it on your radio show now let me ask you a question, don't you think that you are to apologize too?
CROUERE: I never called anybody a communist who is not a communist , or socialist whose not a socialist
SABLUDOWSKY:Oh really, you haven't
CROUERE: I believe that Barack Obama is a socialist
SABLUDOWSKY:I think he's pursuing policies that are socialists
