BRIAN ON ANTHONY WEINER (AKA CARLOS DANGER):
"Yesterday afternoon I thought I was in the way-back machine, I thought why are we playing back Anthony Weiner's press conference where he apologizes for his sexual deviancy....these are just old pictures, right? Boy was I wrong. This clown was out sexting and texting, soliciting people, finally landing a 22 year old buxom brunette sending pictures of his private parts and promising them jobs and vacations and homes in different states, after the scandal that humiliated his family and forced him from office." Brian continued, " did what Lance Armstrong did and Ryan Braun did, he got caught and he denied it and he accused his detractors and accusers of targeting him and went after them. And then once he was found out he resigned and was done, but he wasn't done! He was out doing the same stuff a year later and his wife stands with him."
HOUR ONE COL. ALLEN WEST joined Brian for his weekly hit on Kilmeade and Friends and when asked about Anthony Weiner's new sexting scandal West said, "There was an arrogance about Anthony Weiner that was absolutely shocking to me when I was there in the House...the guys got some problems, there is no doubt about it." West went on to question why people to continue to believe they can have these shortcomings and the American people should accept them and award them with elected office. West cited Elliot Sptizer, Mark Sanford and the Mayor of San Diego as examples of this.
After giving Brian an update on the ongoing fight in the House over cutting the funds to the NSA for their phone records program Fox's Chief Congressional Correspondent MIKE EMANUEL offered up "the bulletin of the interview" when he revealed that he has been jumping around in his man cave basement doing the insanity workout! Mike said it is too soon to send a picture to the Kilmeade and Friends audience, but we hope to get one soon!
Brian also spoke with terrorism expert ERICK STAKELBECK of CBN News and author of 'The Brotherhood: America's Next Great Enemy,' about the dangers the world faces by the growth and influence of the Muslim Brotherhood. Erick states that the Muslim Brotherhood created al-Qaida & Hamas, and really all the groups involved in today's 'war on terror.' "The Muslim Brotherhood is the gateway drug to terrorism. Their plan is to spread Islam by immigrating and building Islamic centers. We're seeing it on a grand scale in Europe and we're starting to see the signs in America as well." He also spoke about how the chaos in Egypt could severely impact the wallets of Americans. "I don't believe the Muslim Brotherhood will go quietly and that is not a good thing for America, if they turn back to terror and say target the Suez Canal, oil and gas prices will sky rocket."
Rising country music star BRETT ELDREDGE stopped by the studio this morning to talk with Brian about the launch of his debut album, Bring You Back, out on August 6th. He broke the news on the show that his current hit, "Don't Ya," just went gold! Eldredge, who just wrapped up touring with Taylor Swift, has also written songs that have been recorded by Trace Adkins and other country songs. He tells Brian how exciting it is to see a country legend like Trace Adkins sing a song he wrote. To find out more about Brett's music or list of his tours, visit bretteldrege.com
Together again! America's Newsrooms' BILL HEMMER & MARTHA MACCALLUM both were back in-studio with Brian today. Martha, fresh back from London where she covered the birth of the Royal baby, shared some behind-the-scene stories while waiting outside the hospital for Kate Middleton to give birth. "There was people down there literally with IV tubes hanging out of their arms, walking around the street wanting to see what's going on, one guy was down there in his hospital gown in his wheelchair who wheeled himself out the front door and into the press so he can see what's going on."
