whatever you want or whatever you like. i am combining a garlic nut recipe i found with a little trick our -- 9news' own colleen ferrara was telling me about and in my opinion, it ended up nothing short of amazing. to make this galoreious, not healthy for you treat, a 16- ounce tube of butter milk biscuits, dried oregano, dried parsley flakes, salt, graded parmesan and a block mozzarella cheese. first up cut up your mozzarella. 10 biscuits come in one premade package so you will need to cut up at least 10 cubes of mozzarella. next open up your package of bis kit and flatten -- biscuit and flatten each out. don't have any holes in the dough. place a cube of mozzarella into the middle of your disk and then pinch the edges of the
7:57 am
mozzarella inside. as you work, place each piece of cheese filled dough onto a nonstick cookie sheet. now it's time to mix-up the toppings. melt a quarter cup or half a stick of butter. add three quarters of a teaspoon of garlic powder, half a flakes, half a teaspoon of dried oregano, a quarter teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese and mix it together well. i used a basting brush with this part because it makes it supereasy to put the mixture on the cheesy doughy goodness. speaking of, time to brush a thin layer of this mixture onto each dough ball.

8:47 am
of them, appeal not to their better angels. i don't think that strategy works. we'll soon find out. but it's been put in to effect fairly well. >> you don't think it will work in november. it's obviously worked to some degree. >> yeah, but look. my grand pop used to have an expression. he used to say joey, people don't really make up their mind until after the world series. i'm not sure it's that late but if you notice, retrospect, voters have made up their mind later and later. i don't think the voters have really, really focused yet. they're beginning to but i don't think they have yet. >> the donald trump campaign put out a statement which seemed to acknowledge that the president was in fact born in the united states of america. >> all right. >> yeah, here we are, two months
8:48 am
>> oh, god. how can you comment on some of the things donald trump says? i've kind of given up. i don't have any comment on it. >> trump himself didn't say it. i could read you the statement if you'd like. the campaign says in 2011 trump was able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling president obama to release his birth certificate. the president and the country by bringing closure to the issue hillary clinton and her team first raised. we can talk about fact checking of that statement. >> he's a great patriot for doing that. he deserves a lot of credit. come on.

8:51 am
of deficits was healthcare costs to the federal government. so does it need to be fine tuned? yes, the president thinks that too. >> the vice president, being described as a bucket of warm spit. i've always wanted to ask the vice president, is there a kernel of truth to that old adsnj ad -- adage? >> there's no power in the vice vice presidency other than to decide. it depends how much authority and everyone knows he bestows on him. i've had a great partnership with the president where he's given me major assignments. democrat or republican, whoever the next president is, there's so much the president has to deal with. there's a need to have someone who can take a significant portion of that responsibility
