BRIAN'S QUOTE OF THE DAY
Brian on stop-and-frisk: "They go into an area which is high in crime. Not because it's black, not because it's Hispanic, not because it's white; because it's a high-crime area. They say, 'What do we need to do to be proactive rather than reactive? One thing I need to do is make sure people understand that they cannot carry weapons in New York City.' You cannot carry a gun in New York City. Ask Plaxico Burress that. He shot himself in the foot, he ended up literally going to jail for six months. You can't have it."
"I aspire to be Kim Kardashian!" ALAN COLMES, host of the FOX News Talk Radio show The Alan Colmes Show, talked to Brian about the President's comments about the Kardashian clan. Colmes said that Kim is a great example of how in America, you don't need to have any particular gift or talent to become rich and famous. "I think that's all something we could aspire to," Colmes exclaimed.
FOX News Terror Analyst and Middle East Expert, WALID PHARES, talked to Brian about the situation in Egypt. "The American public at this point and time needs to be standing with the Egyptian people," Phares exclaimed. He went onto say that last night an attack occurred, where 38 churches and cathedrals in Egypt were burned down. "This is the biggest, massive campaign against Christians ever seen in the history of the... modern Middle East at least," he explained.
REP. LOUIE GOHMERT (R-TX) reacted to Reggie Love's comment that he was playing cards with President Obama while the UBL raid was in progress. Gohmert questioned how Obama could sit back and play cards while he had people going after one of the most sought after targets in American history. Gohmert recalled that Obama was also playing golf when the mission commenced. Gohmert exclaimed, "That is just astounding...I don't know, maybe he is auditioning to be a member of Augusta National, you know, they like to play cards and play golf." Congressman Gohmert also weighed in on Obamacare, the future of the GOP, Sen. Rubio and immigration (Rubio has been scared by Senate Democrats), and the Obama rodeo clown.
TANNER COLBY, author of Some of My Best Friends Are Black: The Strange Story of Integration in America, talked to Brian about his new book. He said he got the idea to write a book about integration during the 2008 Presidential election, but his editors were skeptical of the idea since he was predominantly known for writing biographies of comedians. He said to his editors, "If I'm a white guy writing about race in America, ignorance is really the only qualification I need." And they signed off on it.
Conservative Columnist, PAT BUCHANAN, talked to Brian about Egypt. "Egypt's a country of 85 million people and probably 75 million of them are desperately poor. And these folks have one thing in which they believe, and that is their faith. And that is the Islamic faith, and the Islamic faith does not tolerate rival faiths," Buchanan said.
JT THE BRICK, author of The Handoff: A Memoir of Two Guys, Sports, and Friendship, talked to Brian about his new book. He said his book is about "true friendship." JT explained that the book chronicles his life, career, and the growth of a friendship with his best friend and boss. He went on to explain that eventually his best friend, Andrew, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and died. "If you haven't talked to a member of your family or a friend for 10 or 15 years, drop all the nonsense, pick up the phone, and call 'em and get that relationship back on track," JT said.
