Now Stephen A you've been in the you've Been in the space for a while yeah what And and you know you know somebody will Make a position somebody will do Something and you may not comment on it And some things you will comment on it Because you understand the Professionalism and certain things Beyond closed doors but you know the the The way Don Lemon handled the situation With musk and what he did from your Perspective he's not with somebody he's Independent today himself and you know Him and Chris were you know Back to back and they did their show Together for not not together but they Had a back toback show for many years Yes uh how do you think Don handled the Situation with Elon Musk going asking For 8 million 5 million a car shares you Know private jet massage all this stuff How do you think what was wrong with his Ask towards musk well let me say this to You um we live in the capitalistic Society you are what the market says you Are I'm certainly not going to knock him For asking I mean there's certain things That I wouldn't ask for you know give me I'm the kind of person I'm not going to You for all of those things just give me The money so I can get all of those Things on my own I don't need to ask you For if I'm the type of person that okay I might want a massage and I I might

Want a therapist I might want this car I Might want this that well damn it that Adds up to about an extra four or5 Million you know than what I originally Thought so I'll ask for the extra $45 Million because I think that it comes ac Across as excessively extra when you're Asking for specific things as opposed to The money where you could go out and get It yourself that's number one number Two when you saw the interview with Don Lemon who I respect by the way I respect Him I don't always agree with him but I Respect him um and I respect some of the Positions he's taken not all over the Years I would tell You I thought that he was the one who Messed up the Elon Musk interview I'm Like you can go on CNN all you want to You can talk about it till the cows come On that was on you and it's this simple So I want to come and Work for Patrick B David and he's got this platform Valu Tainment okay and I want to work on this Platform and you hire me and my first Interview is you I am not going to treat You like you're somebody that just Showed up on my show like I had on CNN I'm I'm I know who I'm sitting in front Of and I understand you have an Obligation to the audience but you also Have an obligation to be practical and Understand business as it's conducted

There's a way to do things it's not that You can't ask questions it's not that You can't probe it's not that you can't Let them know what the people want to Know and I'm but the manner in which you Do it you don't treat Somebody like they're just anybody Elon Musk purchased X for 4 $ 44 billion last Time I check I think that's the number Okay and I'm on his platform damn it he Ain't just anybody and one of the things That I have a problem with when I look At things that are transpiring in this Country you can't in the same Breath talk about Capitalism talk about how it's equal Opportunity that we want but everybody Doesn't deserve the same it's about your Level of production some people are High-end earners some people are high Level producers and stuff and uh you Know they're getting treated they might Earn more than somebody that just don't Have that skill set that's the world We're living in and I think that you Have a lot of people here that want to Act act as if you know what we we're After a different culture we want Everything the same for everybody you're Lying you are lying I grew up in the Streets of Hollis Queens New York City I Was my mother was on welfare for a Little while and it killed her killed Her that she was sick to her stuff that

We had to get government cheese and Bread and all of this other stuff and She got the hell off of it as soon as She possibly could and I know that when She sent me out there to work she didn't Send me out there to be like just Anybody she sent me out there to be the Best that I can be why so I can earn More for myself than the average typical Person and most people in a capitalistic Society believe in that and so when you Have folks walking around like everybody Is supposed to be the same that's Nonsense you're lying to the American Public you're lying to yourself it's not True and the in the end people who Produce More ultimately end up more successful Than those who don't and Jimmy Johnson a Former coach of the Dallas Cowboys said It best I will be very consistent in my Inconsistencies those who produce will Be treated better than those who don't And I appreciated his cander whether you Like it or not that's the reality and I Think that the sooner that we accept That the better off it is we just have Too many people in this world especially On Capitol Hill as well that want to Give this impression or want to Literally go about the business of Changing that and making things equal The only thing that should be equal is Opportunities but what you receive from

Your level of production is on you I can No longer remain in today's Democratic Party Tulsi gabard say she is no longer A Democrat a potential tulsy gathered VP Where we are being told that we just Have to comply and go along with Whatever they say American people uh are Smarter than this however we must remain Vigilant to recognize their propaganda For what it is pure life unfortunately We live in a time where free speech is Under attack whatever they say goes and We we have to just fall and the people Who suffered under your reign as Prosecutor you owe them an Apology taking on KLA Harris on a debate Stage before I would look forward to Doing that Again so if you like this clip and you Want to watch it another one click right Here and if you want to watch the entire Podcast click right Here
