tv   Risk and Reward With Deidre Bolton  FOX Business  June 2, 2016 5:00pm-6:01pm EDT

5:00 pm
breaks to build and was smashed by 4-year-old in seconds, just hours after going on display. wow. david: think of the guy on the left. he actually built it. that does it for us. "risk & reward" starts right now >> he is not just unprepared, he is tempermentally unfit. this is not someone whoever have the nuclear codes. he believes we can treat the u.s. economy like one of his casinos and default on our debt to the rest of the world. we can not put the security of our children and grandchildren in donald trump's hands. deirdre: hillary clinton taking on donald trump, on foreign policy, as house speaker paul ryan says he will vote for donald trump. this is "risk & reward." i'm deirdre bolton. speaker ryan tweeting as hillary clinton finishing her address. i will be voting for real donald trump this fall.
5:01 pm
i'm confident he will help turn around the house gop's agenda into laws. speaker ryan's chief communications advisor followed up on that tweet saying, we can call it an endorsement. we'll bring you more. first on foreign policy. donald trump says hillary clinton is not qualified to be commander-in-chief. >> she's not qualified because she has bad judgment. now who said that? bernie sanders said it about hillary. she is not qualified. she's one of the worst secretaries of state in the history of our country. now she wants to be our president. look, i'll be honest, she has no natural talents to be president. this is not a president. hillary clinton, who lies, i mean she lies! you remember that, i started that, she lies! she lies. she made a speech and she is making another one tomorrow, and they sent me a copy of the speech. and it was such lies about my
5:02 pm
foreign policy. these are crooked people. these are crooked people. they have been crooked from the beginning. deirdre: well, hillary clinton was speaking, trump tweeted out, bad performance by crooked hillary clinton, reading poorly from the teleprompter, she doesn't even look presidential. trump's foreign policy advisor walid phares is with me now. walid. welcome back. always glad to have you. >> thank you. >> deirdre: i want to ask you in a general election, assume it is hillary clinton versus donald trump, you are a foreign policy expert. both want independent voters. who made better case today in? >> secretary clinton engaged in a massive criticism of donald trump. she tried -- [inaudible]. he did this, he did that. he said this, he said that. don't trust him. the problem here is that we're not talking about two persons who equally had the chance to
5:03 pm
govern. we're talking about an opposition leader, mr. trump who is making states and also delivering foreign policy speeches and a secretary of state who for four years who had made decisions on real issues, she talks about mr. trump saying, he can't make decisions off these issues yet she made those decisions in libya, in syria, and iraq, in yemen and many other places. i think mr. trump during his debate with her he will actually describe what is happening and his response to her personal attacks. deirdre: so she says, speaking of which, that donald trump is temper mentally unfit to be president and i think implication was commander-in-chief. she has spoken about him potentially in that role as a loose cannon. you are working closely with him on foreign policy. what would you tell us for people who are not in the room with him, when you discuss foreign policy strategy with him? >> that's great question, deirdre because the advisors and
5:04 pm
briefers work with him. and i'm talking about many, many months, leading to him becoming the presumptive nominee. you know how many briefings he to the, you know how many former generals and, people who had been in the real world spoke with him? >> did he ever unleash that information in public? look at her speech. she was talking about the security arrangement on those ships between japan and south korea. she has been using actual information she has been briefed on and in times of controlling yourself, controlling information that you have, the evidence is here. the. deirdre: so, do you think, walid, because there are many people who admire donald trump's spirit. he is a fighter. people say that's what america needs again. but isn't good listener, two experts on foreign policy such as yourself? >> we can not speak, we advisors, because they're not expected to say anything about internal operation but ask anyone who worked with him or briefed with him on the outside
5:05 pm
and in terms of how many questions he asks? how many times he asks about internal matters. he actually asked or asks while he is meeting with people outside of the campaign as experts, as he sitting in the oval office. information, the input is coming from agencies, and when you have the input, what would you do with it? for example, when hillary clinton was speaking about libya, she would put input on syria. what did she do with it? not that you receive the information, what you do with it. >> excellent point, walid, thank you for joining us, i know you called into join us especially, and we appreciate it. >> thank you so much. deirdre: walid phares, donald trump's senior foreign policy adviser. trump did give details earlier this week, and as part of that press conference, he gave the microphone to a retired marine sergeant. here is the sergeant's comment. >> stop using them as political
5:06 pm
pawns. you got a guy outside mccoy, do a google search on his facebook. he's out there, his picture's with clinton. they are using veterans as political pawns, it must stop. donald trump is doing this from the heart. you're all focused on the way he's raising money, and you're not looking at the 22 veterans killing each other every day. not concerned about the thousands of veterans on wait lists. look at this, he talks about medical cards, talks about fixing the va, talks about competition. i think the liberal media need to get your head out of the butt, focus on the real issues. deirdre: sergeant al baldasaro is with me now. sergeant, welcome, we are very glad to have you. you are a state representative. as a veteran, someone who has been on the front lines, why is donald trump your choice for commander in chief? >> well, first of all, i want you to know i'm not just
5:07 pm
somebody who went to desert storm. i'm a father who sent their son to war. i would never, like i said on tv, i would never put my name on anybody unless i had 100% confidence that they are prepared to take on and look out for the veterans because my son is one of them. and that's why donald trump is the real deal. he looked me in the eye, he listened to all the veterans that i brought when i first met him. he tells it like it is. he holds no punches. deirdre: so he, obviously, has consulted with you about your service and speaks to you about your son's service. >> yeah, not only did he consult me about my service. he came into new hampshire before he even ran and wanted to see what was going on with the va, what's going with the veterans? so i put a meeting together with his manager and we brought in the vfw, the american legion, patriot guy, the
5:08 pm
league, we sat at the table and talked to him one on one, he listened to every one with the issue in new hampshire and veterans throughout the country. deirdre: so sergeant, for people who say he's full of bluster, you say i know from my personal experience, he's a good listener? >> you know, i served five presidents, five commander in chiefs, okay? a couple were useless on the military. i know what it is for a good commander in chief who will build the military and make damn well sure they're going to protect my children and everyone else's children to be able to take on the american dream. he's the real deal. i have confidence in his fidelities and abilities, and past years of experience, what he's done for the veteran community to fulfill his promises. deirdre: so sergeant, we take your advice and insight because you have been on the front lines, you have a child there
5:09 pm
now. here's hillary clinton moments ago on her impression of donald trump. here is what she said. >> he said you've got to give kim jong-un credit for taking over north korea, something he did by murdering everyone he saw as a threat, including his own uncle which donald described gleefully like he was recapping an action movie. and said if he were grading vladimir putin as a leader, he'd give him an a. now i will leave it to the psychiatrist to explain his affection for tyrants. deirdre: so sergeant, i don't know if you listened to hillary clinton's speech, but we just played a bit now. what do you think of her comments? >> i would give her an f. first of all, i put her in the category with jane fonda. blood on her hands on benghazi, the way she treated the marines in the white house was terrible. she has no respect whatsoever
5:10 pm
for the military. she's got these paid vets that are going to columbia university. i think they're the second most liberal university in the country, going after trump and saying that of vets. i'm sorry, she's a disgrace and i'm scared of her as commander in chief of my son in the military, and i'm sure many other moms and dads should be nervous after what happened with benghazi. where was she? was she sleeping at 3:00 in the morning? deirdre: well, that is an event that certainly haunts her to this day on the campaign trail. speaking of, which since you are a state representative, i want to ask you, house speaker paul ryan endorsed donald trump. do you think that's a signal of the party, no matter what the differences are, coming together? >> i think it's awesome he finally came together because more and more republicans around the country that said they could never vote for
5:11 pm
trump. when they wake up and look at crooked hillary, what she would do to the country, how she would destroy the military? take away 2nd amendment. this is a no-brainer. people see this here, especially a supreme court justice could take away our constitutional rights in the flick of a pen? thank you, paul ryan, for doing the right thing. deirdre: sergeant, we thank you very much, retired sergeant-state representative al baldasaro, thank you very much, sir, and for your service. >> thanks, i'm a first sergeant, but thank you. deirdre: okay. fox business is going to have a live coverage of next tuesday's contests including california primary. lou dobbs kicks off coverage 7:00 p.m. eastern time. well, from domestic politics to international ones, new study reveals the chinese government is buying luxury hotel chains around the world, especially in the u.s., to
5:12 pm
improve on its ability to spy. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge with me now with the details. so catherine, we know that president obama didn't stay at a very well-known traditional hotel in new york. we assume for fear of spying, but this is a widespread practice? >> that's right, deirdre. the report warns of massive campaign by the chinese government to buy up luxury hotels as part of larger strategy to steal business secrets. >> the chinese are responsible for 95% of the economic espionage that we see in american firms. so rather than describe the hotel as certainly compromised, we're calling it a high-security risk. reporter: the research group inbent ip has produced this interactive map showing 2700 locations. it says are chinese government owned, controlled or affiliated hotel properties. comes down to the fear of bugging rooms and
5:13 pm
eavesdropping. while there is no definitive evidence of spies in western rooms, the chinese military runs worldwide hacking operation out of a nondescript shanghai office building. china has a long history of using hotels for economic espionage, and today experts warned that internet and wi-fi services are especially vulnerable. >> the second you accept that wi-fi connection, all of the transmission of data that you leverage from the device and the device itself and the information held on it can be accessed by the network. >> reporter: the risk may not be hypothetical. the u.s. government broke with decades of tradition and abandoned the waldorf astoria in new york for the u.n. general assembly meetings. the white house offered a vague explanation. >> there are a range of considerations that influence where the president will stay when he is not at the white house.
5:14 pm
those considerations include everything from available space to cost and to security. >> reporter: fox news reached out to two of the major hotels identified in the research and there was no immediate comment. last year, when the issue first arose, the waldorf astoria in new york did not see security issues coming out of the chinese purchase. deirdre? deirdre: thank you so much. catherine herridge with us there. take a quick look at the markets, s&p 500 highest since november. this is the seventh day in a row in the green for the nasdaq. its longest winning streak in 16 months. you had two key groups that supported the gains, health care and telecom stocks. the state department is admitting a deliberate edit seen here from an exchange with a fox news reporter doing a 2013 press briefing on the iran nuclear deal. the former state department spokesperson involved in that
5:15 pm
exchange, jen psaki, denying knowing anything about it. we'll give you her full statement after this. >> we learned there was a deliberate request, that this wasn't a technical glitch. this was a deliberate request to excise video. and as i said, and said it this morning to the staff, i don't find that an appropriate step to take. ♪ ♪ (singing) you wouldn't haul a load without checking your clearance. so why would you invest without checking brokercheck? check your broker with brokercheck. it's more than a nit's reliable uptime. and multi-layered security.

5:17 pm
5:18 pm
. deirdre: first it was called a glitch. the state department admits eight minutes were deleted from a 2013 briefing video. a question from our colleague james rosen was removed.
5:19 pm
at time of that exchange, state department employee, jen psaki said this -- that state department employee is now the white house communications director. her colleague current spokesperson for the state department james kirby made this comment on fox and friends about the edit. >> i want to thank james rosen. your correspondent. for bringing this to my attention. if he hadn't a couple of weeks ago, i wouldn't have known. we took it seriously and talked to the technician who was asked to make this cut, and the call that came into her was a dpraul somebody else passing on a request from another official, that's why it was too removed. >> did the editor remember who called her and directed her to do this? >> she did not.
5:20 pm
she did not know who to call. >> does that mean because she gets these calls all the time? too many for her to remember this one in particular? >> i don't think that's the case, no. >> why couldn't she remember? if she remembers deleting it, why doesn't she remember who gave her the direction. >> only a few people have the power to edit out the record. >> i was as curious about this as you were. i can't speak for what she remembered or didn't remember. all she remembered was that it was a request passed on -- the caller was passing on the request from someone in the public affairs bureau. and again, we don't find that acceptable. >> i imagine that you as an admiral, under your command someone say i forget, that would ever suffice under you? >> listen, i did not specifically get involved in this particular line of questioning. deirdre: my power political panel with me now, conservative review chief political correspondent deneen borelli.
5:21 pm
democratic strategist basil smythe and hadley heath manning. welcome to you all. so deneen, those eight minutes were removed by someone, the spokesperson at time says she doesn't remember who asked for that edit, why that edit was requested, but clearly that edit was made. what is your take? >> deirdre, this is more lies, propaganda and spin from president obama and his administration. clearly, this was done to cover for president obama because they did lie about iran. they lied about iran -- >> meaning supporting the international community. >> and manipulated the information to americans as well saying they were not in talks with them, when, in fact, they were in 2012, and this came out in 2013, excuse me. more lies on an international level, benghazi, they lied. national level, obama lied about obamacare. they lied about all kinds of
5:22 pm
things that americans are tired of. deirdre: i want to pick up on the domestic issues. basil, what is your take on this edit. it's pretty odd? >> it's odd and everyone from the admiral to the former spokesperson said it's odd. i don't want to throw in the kitchen sink of policy issues that some may claim that the president has lied about. i obviously disagree, but i think if you have the two people who are currently and formerly responsible for what comes out of department saying they didn't have knowledge of it, that this should not have happened. i think it may be something that was done -- deirdre: is that too easy, basil? like you're on my team, i do something that's not right, and i just say, well, another team member said it and that person has another job and so it's over. >> i think it should be responsibility taken for it, no question about it. i don't think there was something untoward that came from the highest levels of
5:23 pm
administration as have been implied. deirdre: hadley, do you think this changed the fate of this nuclear deal which many people see as an administrative mistake? >> you know, regardless of how you feel about the iran deal, you have to be troubled by the series of events within the state department. not just odd that the video footage was edited. it's troubling, in order to have a functioning and robust democracy, we need informed citizenry, they need to know what information they can trust. and right now public trust of government is at a low, at about 19%. so this is a bigger issue than the iran deal. this is an issue of can we trust the institutions that provide us with information that we use to make decisions. deirdre: fair enough. points to you all. thank you so much. hadley, basil and deneen. thank you for your thoughts. we want to let you know oil broke its four-day losing streak. earlier today, prices were down on word of no deal on production from opec, but then
5:24 pm
prices moved higher after that. there was word of a drawdown in u.s. crude inventories, so otherwise known as less supply pushes up the prices. at the pump, average price $2.33 a gallon, up from a month ago at $2.21. when we come back, a former state department top watchdog debunked hillary clinton's main claim in the e-mail investigation. former george w. bush state department inspector general is my guest next. >> i fully complied with every rule they was governed by.
5:25 pm
5:26 pm
5:27 pm
. deirdre: hillary clinton has said that previous secretaries of state had private e-mail serveers. a former state department watchdog debunks that claim. he is with me now, former state department inspector general of
5:28 pm
president george w. bush, howard cronguard is with me guard. sir, welcome, glad you could join us. to your knowledge, have other secretaries of state used private e-mail addresses and or servers? >> well, no one has used the server prior to secretary clinton as the ig report pointed out, secretary powell on limited occasions did use personal e-mail for business-related purposes. secretary albright stated she did not use it, and to my knowledge, while i was present and as the inspector general report stated, condi rice did not use e-mail for either personal or government purposes. deirdre: where is the disconnect? because hillary clinton actually named all of those people as people who set a precedent? >> i asked that question as well, so i don't have an answer for it. deirdre: i was curious, maybe you had more information than
5:29 pm
we did. >> nope, nope. deirdre: a fox news source says findings in that report that you referenced puts increased pressure on the department of justice to seek criminal charges. do you agree with that? >> i'd rather not speculate. i really prefer to educate as to what has happened rather than try and speculate about what might happen. deirdre: so what sticks out in that contextual point in your brain about this situation versus any other? >> i'd say two things. one, i think there's been too much focus on the content of the e-mails and not enough attention to the source of the e-mails. what would trouble me is whether e-mail or other information was taken off classified networks and found its way onto an unclassified private server, and there are, of course, reports only reports, i don't have the firsthand information, that information that was on sipper net, a classified government
5:30 pm
system was taken off and placed on an unclassified server. that would be a serious matter. but beyond that there are reports that information came from what is called j-wicks, perhaps the most sensitive classified government communications system, and if, and i say if, because i don't know and it hasn't been reported officially yet that that's the case. if information came off of j-wicks, was taken from j-wicks and jumped the so-called gap from a classified system to unclassified system, that is a very serious matter. deirdre: you're saying that to this point, the media has been focused on the wrong issues as far as the granular details go. >> i wouldn't say wrong, and secretary clinton continually said she never sent nor received e-mails marked classified. that focused the information on the information, and i'm sure
5:31 pm
the fbi is paying more attention to where it came from. for example, anything that came off of j-wicks and sipper net as well, by nature and location is going to be classified regardless of what it's marked. deirdre: great point. howard, one last question as far as the fact that some of hillary clinton's aides said that at various points in communication, her own server, private server went down and she was offered the .gov through a different device and said no because she didn't want that to be accessed by the freedom of information act, does that stick out as irregular in your mind? >> it does. not to jump but one of the things that stands out more in my mind is the refusal to cooperate with the ig's investigation. as an ig myself, i would be very disheartened if the head of the federal agency did not cooperate with one of my investigations.
5:32 pm
i think that when comes out of ig's report is an appropriate matter. there's a lot of technical issues, but that does stand out. deirdre: come back, we would like to get into more detail. you helped us reframe the conversation, thank you, howard. >> thank you. deirdre: howard kronguard, former state department inspector general. if you look at amazon's stock, a week of wins. online retail giant hitting yet another lifetime high today, the third in the row, the sixth one this year. when we come back, a government crackdown on dinner. the fda is announcing a list of 150 food categories where restaurants should reduce their salt amount. we have a restaurant owner that says the government should butt out.
5:33 pm
i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise.
5:34 pm
trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes and should not be used by people with severe stomach or intestinal problems or people with type i diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer, which may include a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. medicines like trulicity may cause stomach problems, which could be severe. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and any medicines you take. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, and indigestion.
5:35 pm
some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney failure. with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar numbers with a non-insulin option, click to activate your within. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. is it keeps the food out. for me before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. just a few dabs is clinically proven to seal out more food particles. super poligrip is part of my life now.
5:36 pm
. deirdre: the obama administration is going after salt. the fda has issue voluntary guidelines aimed at limiting salt content in packaged foods and restaurants. so 150 categories of food are targeted including deli meats, bakery products and pizza. with me now franchise owner zane, he owns appleby's restaurants. what does this mean to you as a successful restaurateur. >> if you want i'd get up on the table and jump and scream
5:37 pm
and shout, but for what? deirdre: we have the image. we have the image. >> one more incursion, one more intrusion, one more add-on to what we've been experiencing in the salt. deirdre: what happens if you ignore this? then what happens if your restaurants have a walk-through d? nspectors and you get in . >> you get fined. we have it now. they can come in on saturday night with the department of health. deirdre: when everybody is crazy. >> and walk in and do a surprise inspection, sneak attack. deirdre: what are you supposed to do with the menu, supposed to put the salt shaker icon that has anything more than a teaspoon of salt. >> supposed to identify it and let people know they're eating x number of milligrams of salt. which by itself, cigarette smoking is not so terrible. where does it stop or end?
5:38 pm
i don't know about your apartment, i used to live in the city, and my bedroom was right near the kitchen. is my wall going to stop them. deirdre: do you think this is really going to affect sales? when you think people come to applebees and have a night out and fries and a beer and a burger, they know it's kind of salty, right? >> absolutely, everybody got upset, i did not when they said you have to put calorie counts on the menu. deirdre: that you figured people already know. >> you go out to eat to indulge yourself, if you want to do that stuff or watch your salt or calories, eat at home. the whole purpose of spending money is to indulge yourself. to be more, if you think about the environment. deirdre: as far as what this means for the bottom line. you're running a dozen of the franchises, is it a pain to reprint the menus? you are not worried about sales, it doesn't seem like? >> we're all worried about
5:39 pm
sales in our space of casual dining quite frankly, the economy has not been a great economy. retail sales, macy's closing stores left and right. we're in the retail business, we just happen to sell food, but basically we're in the retail business. deirdre: when a store like macy's closes in the mall where there is applebees, there is no foot traffic. >> i can certainly blame. i know everybody raves and rants about the government. i'm the real world, i'm the real deal, if you will, i'm not an ideologue, or reading a book. we have thousands of depressed people, in harlem, south bronx, i feel gratified we are able to give opportunities to people. the government is trying really hard to prevent us from giving the opportunities to people, and they're successful to some degree. deirdre: what way?
5:40 pm
>> i think the industry's best friend is the government. every time they raise the minimum wage, every time they put more intrusions upon you i.e. the latest overtime rules, you look for how do i survive? what do i do to stay alive? it's getting closer and closer to becoming much more margalran. deirdre: we hope that stops happening. wish you the best of luck and continued success to you. >> thank you so much. deirdre: zane tankel, restaurant owner of more than a dozen applebees. >> speaking of food, a blind man in louisiana is suing mcdonald's. he says the fast food chain's late night drive through policy discriminates against people who are visually impaired. the attorney who is bringing the lawsuits on this gentleman's behalf against mcdonald's is with me next. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece
5:41 pm
in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com.

5:44 pm
deirdre: a man from louisiana who is blind is suing mcdonald's. scott mcghee is his name. he says mcdonald's refused him service at a drive-thru window and violated the americans with disabilities act. his attorney is with me now. welcome, roberto, glad to have you. the premise is denying service to a customer at a drive-thru window who is not in a vehicle, but as i understand it, the main doors of that mcdonald's were closed and the drive-thru window was the only available place to buy food, is that right? >> thanks, deirdre, for having me on. you summed up the case pretty well. deirdre: okay, so the premise is because scott mcghee is blind, he can't drive a car and therefore can't get to the drive-thru window? >> the idea is mcdonald's has 15,000 restaurants throughout the country and open to all americans except like people like mr. mcghee who is unable
5:45 pm
to see, who is blind. deirdre: did you reach out, to before you launched the suit, mcdonald's and say, hey, maybe you want to change this? >> i think not only did mr. mcghee attempt to reach out. many of the 3.5 million blind americans have tried to reach out to mcdonald's corporation and calls fell on deaf ears. deirdre: did they give a reason? i'm not trying to cut you off. i'm curious, roberto, what did mcdonald's say? >> i have no idea. you have to ask mcdonald's that. mcdonald's has not replied to our lawsuit. we served them on may 27th. my office has not heard anything from mcdonald's. we look forward to working with them to find a solution to the problem, it's a very big problem and doesn't just affect blind people. there are millions of blind people and millions more other types of disabled people who are totally unable to access mcdonald's goods and services because it happens to be 11:30 at night.
5:46 pm
