tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News September 7, 2018 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
>> the economy is doing right now. >> more than 4 million jobs created since the election. >> let's remember when this recovery started. >> it was the weakest recovery we ever had. >> wages were rising. >> the best rage number that we've had in many years. >> suddenly republicans are saying it's a miracle. >> we just started. >> the job numbers are the same as they were in 2015. >> isn't this much more exciting than listening to president obama? >> neil: and let the credit taking and back slapping begin. i'm neil cavuto. this is "your world." and wasn't it odd that we found
those bites that had a natural drum roll underneath them? so weird. more than 201,000 americans, we're at 3.9% unemployment. who takes the bow for that? the president of the united states right now or the guy that preceded him? that was seen in display today for all of its monkeyness and in your faceness. let's go to connell mcshane keeping track of it all. >> hi, neil. the report that we had today was a solid report. the report on jobs. we look at it by the numbers. 201,000 nonfarm jobs were added in the month of august. that was better than what we saw the month before. the unemployment rate staying where it was. 3.9%. we also saw a pickup in wages average hourly earnings increasing by 10 cents. up by 3% from the same time last
year. actually the biggest gain we've seen since the economic expansion began in the middle of 09. speaking of that expansion, it was indeed the reemergence of president obama that brought the origin of the expansion back into focus. the former president made a speech in illinois. he did take credit for starting the economic comeback. here's our look at how it really played out in growth terms. now, you look at this. the economy was contracting in 09. it did turn under president obama. peaking with a growth raise of 2.9%. that was 2015. the growth has not only continues but has picked up during the trump administration to this point. this part we're locking at quarterly growth, not annual growth. the growth rate, second quarter, topping 4% helped by the trump tax cuts. the question will be what comes next. the experts say that may depend on the federal reserve.
higher wages are something that many are wishing for are here. that's good news. it means the fed will likely continue to raise interest rates to prevent the economy from overheating, which sometimes can slow growth or slow things down too much. so finding that right balance he be the key. certainly today's report on jobs was strong. >> neil: you sound very excit g exciting. thanks very much. so who gets the credit for this? we have lee carter here. charles payne, democratic strategist superstar, rich is here. rich, beginning with you. president obama saying look, they're bragging about stuff that i started. you say? >> i'm really excited to hear from president obama finally. a lot of democrats have been waiting for him to actually come out. president obama performed an economic miracle during his presidency and donald trump has been blessed because of it. >> neil: that's what you've been
saying. >> anyone that thinks that someone can implement policies and then we'll immediately see the results of that, the positive results of that overnight is full of it. the economy is a slow-moving ship. >> neil: so let's say this began under president obama. it's fair to say it went on steroid with president trump. can't both take a bow? >> both are trying to take a bow. a couple things. first, let's talk about the wild card factor under obama. the federal reserve printed $4.5 trillion and put that into the economy. they raised rates once in eight years under obama. they raised them five times to slow down the economy under trump. so you have the term security lend fog sillty, the commercial paper thing, the asset backed thing, the money mark thing, the mortgage backed securities. $40 billion a month. treasuries, $45 billion a month. the federal reserve put so much money in this economy, you have
to put an asterisk on what president obama did. the federal said only if we had fiscal policy matching monetary policy, we can grow. with president trump inherited was a economy the last two quarters under president grew under 1.9, 1.8. that's where the fed came in. >> neil: you don't give president obama any credit. >> very little. >> neil: let me raise this with you. enough to emphasize both fine arguments. but you can also look at what president obama was trying to do today to reach out to people to say republicans shouldn't seize this economic mantel and say they're the reason why things are going great and they're going to take to it the polls and hang on to the house as a result. he said we should own this ourselves. >> absolutely. if you look at the only thing
right now that trump is performing well on is the economy. voter sentiment right now is very, very positive towards the economy. so the president and the republicans get credit for the economy, that makes it hard for the democrats to take any credit. >> neil: how about charles point though? the federal reserve did keep interest rates near zero a long time. i remember recovering it, had it not been for that, anybody could have been president. you needed that. that provide add lot of juice. >> one thing they're not talking about, they're not talking about the federal budget. they're not talking about the fact that trump is act to exceed the deficit by more than a trillion -- >> neil: whoa, whoa, whoa. this is not a democrat lecturing -- that's like me eating salad. >> so trump spending -- >> neil: when did you worry about the government spend something. >> if we are going to talk about
the economy -- >> we have debt under barack obama and debt under trump. >> the debt under obama is because of the great recession. >> neil: so $10 trillion is stuff that he got from bush? >> the debt happened under trump is permanent. we're talking about $25 billion for a wall. 1.5 trillion for infrastructure. then we know how much -- >> neil: the $10 trillion that we spent -- the administration is done now, the obama administration. that is very real money that we added to our debt. >> it is. but i'm making this point that you cannot sit here and ignore the fact that obama -- first of all, obama was dealing with 800,000 jobs being lost. >> neil: fair enough. you're right. he came into a nasty situation. >> that is incredible. >> neil: here's the argument for you, charles. the market has taken off with the big run-off. people are saying the same
mentality is there, whether republicans or democrats are in charge. you be moan that as well. >> absolutely. >> how much of a worry should that be for president trump? the same thing that he railed against barack obama will haunt him? >> what she said is spot on. it's a damn shame about spending. we don't know when we'll hit -- >> neil: the president said you can grow your way out of it. you know, protect the social security, you can grow. >> reagan proved that you can grow, but if you have a federal government that never slows down spending. you know, don't forget when you talked about debt, president obama today, former president obama hinted at no debt for students. so taxpayer going to pay that $1.5 trillion in student debt out there? that would certainly be huge. >> neil: what do you think of that? there's debt that goes to good
causes in the eyes of the beholder. how is this weighing out? americans are feeling good about the economy. how is it sorting out? >> it's an interesting thing right now. look at the rise of socialism as it's more popular than other ideologies. one of the big reasons is because of student debt. people are saddled. kids out of college with $200,000 of debt. that's how they're starting out. of course, someone that promises that they're going to solve that problem is going to be popular with young people and their parents trying to help them get out from under this. on on the of that, a lot of people with healthcare problems, healthcare issues. insurance premiums are out of control. families paying over $2,000 a month. when you say you have solutions, that's good. but how are you going to pay for it? it's candy. sounds great. will get people excited but i'm not sure -- >> neil: now the presidents will be at each other. >> that's president trump's responsibility -- >> neil: president obama indicated -- this was his opening salvo.
he will be stumping for candidates. how do you think it's going to go? >> i think that -- i don't see how republicans can take credit for this economy. it's not to say that president trump hasn't done anything well. i mean, this is great. we're moving in the right direction. but the take -- >> neil: i want to replay that bite. this is great. >> to take complete ownership of that? no. >> neil: i want to thank you all. and then there's charles. when we come back -- >> i'm saying thank you. don't stop. >> neil: democratic senator cory booker is not backing down from the comments he made and what he was saying about brett kavanaugh. but forget about the sparticus stuff. but calling the whole thing a sham? after this. this is a story about mail and packages.

designed to try to prevent documents from being seen by the american people. so i'm standing on this hill and if they want to kick me out of the senate, so be it. bring it. >> neil: all right. i still don't understand this whole process of leaking e-mails and all. they said they already agreed to do it and all. that was the read of cory booker here. judge andrew napolitano, help me with this. he's tempting, go ahead, kick me out. what did you make of what he's doing and whether it had in effect? >> i think -- good afternoon, neil. a pleasure to be with you. i think what he was saying is this a sham rule and the rule to which he was referring was a procedure whereby a senate judiciary committee staff member on her or his own can designate documents as confidential when and after they're designated confidential, the members of the committee can see them but not
refer to them in public. as it turns out, the documents in question which were some e-mails by brett kavanaugh when he was in the white house and talking about scholarly opinions of roe v. wade and how aggressive police could be in the months after 9-11 had been marked confidential by a senate staff member. but through negotiations between republicans and democrats in which senator booker did not take part, the confidentiality was lifted. so at the time he made his grand display at the judicialry committee hearing, judge kavanaugh sitting there waiting to be questioned yesterday saying i'm sparticus, meaning i'm willing to die on my sort, this is so important to me and my beliefs that i'm going to reveal necessary confidential documents, no fact, that were no longer confidential. the issue did he know that and was this all a farce and a
courageous defender of open government that he wants us to believe he is. i don't know what the answer to that is. >> neil: i do know the movie "sparticus." all the other slaves stood up to say they were sparticus. it was a moot point because they were all killed. i don't want to give the movie away. >> correct. a very, very -- >> neil: where are we going with this, right? >> you know, neil, i think the democrats are still smarting over two things. one, the refusal of the senate into consider president obama's nomination of merrick garland two years ago to replace justice scalia and two, their loss to the presidency and their opposition to anybody. mother theresa, could be st. thomas aquinas. so the only way they could express that anger and feed
their base is through the histrionics that we saw the other day from my boyhood friend, boy hood friend, cory booker. >> neil: i was thinking the mother theresa was alive and subjected to what we put these candidates through on capitol hill, she might say some controversial things. judge, always a pleasure. thank you. >> all the best, neil. >> neil: are there the votes after all of this back and forth for judge kavanaugh to become a justice on the supreme court of the united states? senate republican conference vice chair roy blunt. what do you think, senator? >> i think he had a fine week. it's a grueling process, but i think what judge kavanaugh did this week expressing his understanding of the law, kind of void he is, even the american bar association not just unanimously giving him the well-qualified rating but going out of their way to mention what an outstanding individual we
have an opportunity to put on the court. i think that will happen. i believe it will happen by the first monday in october when the court reconvenes. i think he will serve the court with great distinction hopefully for a long time. >> neil: there was some concern, senator and how some of your colleagues feel about this, on the e-mails that went back many years. judge kavanaugh might have had a different view of whether roe v. wade was precedent and should not be fooled around with. now, he said he was speaking at a lawyer about the arguments for the case, but a lot of democrats weren't buying it. what about some of those republican colleagues of yours for whom this could be a make or break issue? >> first of all, democrats weren't going to buy whatever he said, this is a situation where half of the democrats or roughly half of the democrats in the senate said that wouldn't be for the nominee who matter it was.
there was a single yes vote that was going to happen on the minority side on that committee. so they weren't going to buy anything. i'm hopeful that all of my colleagues will look at what happened. you're asked to edit something that is being written and you carefully as a lawyer try to eliminate anything out of that that others could argue with. my grandfather told me one time, you always lose your argument based on the weakest point, so don't make it. that happened to be a time when judge kavanaugh as a young lawyer saw this is not technically without argument about whether everybody agrees with this point, even three current judges on the point appear not to agree with that point, doesn't serve any need here. why would we put it in and distract from whatever else is being argued. that's what a good lawyer would always do. more importantly, judge kavanaugh has 300 cases.
those are what my colleagues ought to be looking at. there's plenty of material out here to look at. 13 of those cases almost verbatim determined by the united states supreme court to be good enough to be their opinion and there's more paper than there's ever been. i think it paint as really good picture for the kind of justice brett kavanaugh will be. >> neil: he does have quite a paper trail. thanks, senator very much. we have more coming up including request on the part of the president to the united states to ask his attorney general this. can you get to the bottom of who leaked that information and who leaked that editorial to "the new york times"? that could be inviting another legal quagmire after this.

>> people have suggested and rand paul that i like and respect came out this morning and said have them take a lie detector test. a lot of people said i didn't do it. they wrote strong papers. almost -- what i see, almost all of the high level people have said that. you know, when you say that and then if it were you, you'd be shunned for the rest of your life. it's very hard for them to say it. eventually the name of this sick person will come out. >> neil: all right. a lie detector test to get to the bottom of who was the writer of the editorial in "the new york times." john roberts has more on that and the attorney general to fibbed out what happened. john? >> certainly the president would like to find out sooner rather than later who the person is aboard air force one to fargo north dakota earlier today.
the president saying he would like the attorney general jeff sessions to launch an investigation into who wrote this op-ed piece and put it in the newspaper under an anonymous name. the president suggesting this is a national security issue because if this person has a high level security clearance, that means that they could be going into a lot of classified meetings. the president doesn't want a person like that in those classified meetings. so the only way to prevent that would be to identify them. listen here. >> i think so. i think it's national security. i would think that jeff should be investigating the author of that piece. i believe it's national security. >> is there action that should be taken against "the new york times"? >> we'll see. i'm looking at that right now. i'm looking at it. >> is it treason what happened? are you serious about that? >> we're going to take a look at what he had, what he gave, what he's talking about.
also where he is right now. >> outside advisers to the white house tell fox news that the white house has a short list of people that they think might be behind the op-ed. that may be a pre-existing list drawn up when they were trying to stem the leaks coming out of the white house. so far 34 administration officials have denied that they were the author of the anonymous op-ed. among them, mike pompeo who is very critical of the times decision to publish the piece. listen here. >> they should not well have chosen to take a disgruntled, deceptive bad actor's word for anything and put it in their newspaper. it's sad more than anything else. if you're not in a position to execute the commander's intent. you have a singular option. to leave. >> democrats meantime are seizing on this particular passage from the open said said "given the instability many witnessed, there were early
whispers in the cabinet of invoking the 25th amendment" which would start a process to remove the president. nobody wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. elizabeth warren says they should have gone ahead and done it. listen here. >> if senior administration officials think that the president of the united states is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th amendment. >> where this goes from here is unclear. the writer did not appear in the op-ed to disclose any classified information and unless there was some proof that the author was misusing classified information and tried to thwart the president's agenda or certain parts of it, this, neil, may come down to the end of just being nothing more than an employment issue. >> neil: curious about the senior administration official description. that is obviously can go way beyond the president's cabinet, right? >> yeah, it absolutely can. the term is often used loosely. i was joking that i saw a senior
administration official watering the plants the other day. but for "the new york times" to take an anonymous open set from a senior administration official, i would think that they would probably have to be an assistant to the president level or maybe a deputy secretary or something like that. i think that they would -- to be able to get over that bar, they would probably need to be a fairly senior level officer. there aren't that many of them who have been here from the very beginning. so really does shrink down the pool of where they'll look. >> neil: all right. john roberts, thank you. now to karl rove on this. karl, what do you think? do you think they'll find them? >> well, i'm dubious. history may find him. remember, we had deep throat, it was decades before we learned that it was mark felt of the fbi. i think in the short run, this
is something that perhaps somebody inside the white house should be charged with trying to figure out who it might be. but i really think -- we're less than 60 days from an election, which will have a huge impact on the president's agenda the next couple years. and i just think that all of the time that's being spent talking about this and all the focus and all the angst -- look, i understand what the sense of personal betrayal is that he might feel but his time and voice are better spent on other issues. >> neil: the issue of the 25th amendment, some group thinks the president is compromised or his mental health. none of that is the case here is. is this individual saying for the good of the country, i'm staying with my colleagues to keep an eye on this president that was duly elected president? it's weird. >> i think it is weird. i think whoever this person is has a certain amount of
narcissism. what good did this editorial do? if they felt by serving in the administration, somehow not persuading the president, if they couldn't persuade the president, working to undermine him is in the best interest of the country, their quiet is what was necessary. speaking out didn't help it. drew more attention to him. look, the president was elected by the people. it's one thing if you're an aide to the president, you owe the country and the man you serve by giving the best possible advice. if the president disagrees and makes a decision the other way, there's two choices. you can either acknowledge that he's the president and follow the decision or you can leave. so while it's worthy to -- people go into office that may not agree with the president every day, the president wants those people around him, a good president does want to have people that will say, look, mr. president, i don't agree with where you're going. on the other hand, at the end of the day, one person has the will
of the people through their votes and that man is donald trump. >> neil: real quickly, the emergence of barack obama today. i think it's triangulates this economic issue that he says that republicans are trying to co-op and he gets the credit and that it was started with him and meaningful with him and president trump and the republicans are taking control of what democrats should be proud of. what did you make of that? >> there's a reason why on election day 2016 two out of every three americans thought the country was off in the wrong direction. a reason why since january 20th 2017 that consumer confidence, business confidence has risen dramatically. it's why the economy is growing fast. it's why wages have begun to rise. president obama presided over a economy recovery but the weakest in america's recorded history and began with legislative actions that began by his
predecessor that today he could not acknowledge. so once again, we've been subjected to president obama's self-centeredness. >> neil: okay. all put you down as a maybe on that. we'll have more after this. to make me feel sluggish but now, i take metamucil every day. it traps and removes the waste that weighs me down, so i feel lighter. try metamucil, and begin to feel what lighter feels like. that skills like teamwork, attention to detail, and customer service are critical to business success. like the ones we teach here, every day. athis'neil, if this flighted mission is successful, moon.. you'll go down in history. we're planning on the flight being successful. the entire world's watching. five... four... we need to fail down here so we don't fail up there. three...

>> neil: all right. well, the president probably tweeted about it when he said what was nike thinking when they debuted that ad on thursday night football? it is what it is but it didn't just feature colin kaepernick. a host of other athletes and stars in the same ad. lawrence jones is here and attorney emily compagno. emily, for nike, the view is that it took a great risk. given the fall-out from this, which depends if you look at the ratings which were down 8% from a year ago, did it? >> no, i do not think this was a risky maneuver at all. i think it was a calculated business decision on the part of nike. here's why. their most engaged audience is called the made it and know it class. that is successful, they engage online a lot, they know it. they are -- they care about
racial justice. that's one of their top causes. nike knew this and that is who they are targeting. that ad generated 43 million in media ad revenue. nike increased 2,000 over the weekend and online sales of 31%. their shares are up granted there was an initial drop. final point, their market in north america is 40% of this global brand. their growth market is china. so they realize growth in a market that doesn't care about politicalization and catering to a specific audience where it resonated with. >> neil: we'll see about that. lawrence, if that is the case thinking globally and they can take the hit domestically, smart move? what do you think? >> yeah, going to be difficult, neil. it's obvious that nike is targeting the younger generation, targeting the people
that would buy lebron james' shoes. they're not targeting the older voters, the people that would be donald trump's base. you know, we just reported at the leadership institute campus reform that the college of the ozark is dropping their relationship with nike. those are not the people that this is targeting. but this is a split issue, neil. there's a lot of people that believe that this is anti-patriotism and then you have the justice side of the country that believes that this is justice issue. the athletes where they want to get the money from, the people that shoes are $200 plus more are already people that are socially involved in the country right now. >> neil: do you wonder, whatever the politics of this, that usually companies avoid controversy if they can? they like to be as vanilla as possible. nike is taking a stand that we won't do that. that there is a danger to that just as there will be a danger to getting incretesiasingly
polarizing ads for whatever cause? >> nike sell as brand, an image. there's no difference between the material that nike shoes are made out of or reebok or whatever. they're taste makers. they understand the sneaker head market. they understand 2/3s of their shoes are sold to individuals under 35. those are people going out to buy $200 sneakers and selling them for $500. >> neil: and that's held in high regard? >> exactly. individuals that believe in the movement that people on social media -- you see 200,000 people in the streets of charlotte on social justice, nike understands that is the emerging market. the guy sitting around, you know, burning shoes in his back yard, that is not nike's market. >> the problem neil, is this. this is note longer about the conversation of social justice and criminal justice reform, which we believe there needs to be that legitimate conversation. this is about money.
for nike and the present. the moments it's about dollars is where the conversation started to change. the president once critical of this movement now says, you know what? nike pays a lot of rent. they didn't get involved at first. but when it became a dollar signs thing, that's when they started to get involved with this movement. >> neil: bottom line, emily, on the legal issues for nike, the issue for neighbor professional football itself, they had few incidents. nothing note worthy over the kneeling or anything like that. it's a cloud for the nfl and they handled it poorly. that's being generous. where do you see this going, emily? >> i think it's important to note that the nfl p.a. and the owners are behinded closed doors meeting with arbitration to solidify this issue and hopefully come to a conclusion that will resonate well with the pest of the population. clearly they have not made any decisions or actions to be able
to be swallowed by the nation. i want to point out as well, nike never severed ties with kaepernick. >> that's true. >> it's all business for them. >> neil: thank you. we have breaking news to pass along. >> thank you. >> neil: and let you know that papadopoulos, former campaign aide to donald trump back in 2016 has been sentenced to 14 days in jail, 13 months, supervised release and 200 hours of community service on top of $9,500 fine admitting that i made a terrible mistake, i have paid deerly and ashamed and not honest and might have hindered the investigation. my entire life has been turned upside-down. i hope to have a second chance to redeem himself. in about 14 days, he will. more after this. experience a blend of refined craftsmanship... ...and raw power.

>> neil: all right. a former trump campaign aide, george papadopoulos is going to jail for 14 days. he was the aide in the 2016 campaign that apparently lied to the fbi and there was a lot of back and forth about his possible ties to russia, et cetera. how much he knew about and admitted to those ties and whether there were anyone else in the campaign that might have been familiar. judge slapping him with a 14-day incarceration, 13 months of suspended release and a $9,500 fine. you might recall as well that the bob mueller task force looking into that has said that he lied to agents about his contacts to russians to minimize his own role as a witness and to the extent of the campaign's knowledge of his contacts. we'll get the details on this when the judge flushes out this to get to the bottom of it. now for the prosecutor, what do you make of this, james?
>> not a whole lot, neil. this is low-hanging fruit. what is really intriguing to me is how in the trump investigation, the russian collusion investigation, the false statements charges are being used left and right. you have a man going to jail for 14 days when it's not involved with russia or collusion. not to say that false statements are not serious but the same type of charge was sworn off of in the hillary clinton e-mail investigation. so the lingering issue, what is the discretion that the fbi is using when it comes to false statement charges. by the time of the sentencing, the prosecution said we don't care what happens to him. >> neil: to your point, lawyers have said that his testimony was serious as he made false statements to fbi agents,
however, they also claim the lies and the views that they were more serious that were speculative and contrary to the evidence. so they're saying let's calm down here. that seemed to be given the punishment of what the judge's approach was. >> right. the judge looked at it and said, it's always serious when people disrespect law enforcement and dishonest with them. he certainly didn't view it as something that had a dramatic event on the mueller probe. it comes off as a one-off case. >> neil: to that probe, james, what do you think? where does this fit? >> it seems to me this was an attempt at getting somebody to cooperate and didn't work so they were stuck with a mild small prosecution of him. >> neil: james, thank you very much. by the way, to james point, and he was pressing on this and delivering the sentence, the federal judge, randall moss said he got the sense that papadopoulos does feel remorse and not for getting caught. more after this. your insurance rates skyrocket after

- ( phone ringing ) - get details on this state program call or visit >> neil: you might recall last week, maybe the week before, we had former presidential candidate gary johnson on this show. he's running for senate. right now we have the guy on the republican side, new mexico senate candidate, nick rich. we have a call out to his opponent, the incumbent democratic senator martin hiemrich. hope is eternal. great to have you here. >> great to be here. >> neil: let's talk about the economic back and forth and a roaring debate with president obama entering the frey saying this recovery is on me.
things that president trump is bragging about started with me. he was reminding democrats in that illinois say don't forget that guy. don't see the economic issue to republicans. what did you think of that? >> neil, our state has been languishing the last 20 years. it wasn't until president trump got into office and the republicans push forward the tax reform jobs bill that we really started to see our state turn around. that is down in southeast new mexico where there's oil and gas and we're starting to see a little flicker in our economy. neil, i'm running for the united states senate because our state has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. we have one of the highest crime rates around. our students are languishing and we need a senator focused on the economy, good paying jobs and a education system that works. >> neil: do you think the president, sir, should focus on
that? that is even this writer to "the new york times" said that. this is something that he can point to. all this other stuff, going after leakers, punishing those that write editorials in "the new york times" anonymously that that distracts from his pretty good economic message. what do you think? >> personally, i think the president needs to focus on his strengths and where his successes have been. that's in the economy. when we have seen the jobs bill come through, tax reform, unemployment has dropped, more people are going to work. higher wages. it's good all around. that's what the message is that we focus on. when people ask me am i going to support the president and his policies, it's the economic policies that i support. >> neil: when we had gary johnson here, sir, i thought you
two would divide -- i wouldn't call it the republican vote but a lot of the independent vote and the incumbent senator would just waltz in there. what do you think? >> neil, what i see that gary is in the race is, that the republican conservative, those trump voters that voted for the president and the presidential campai campaign, they're on board with our candidacy and martin and gary are going to be splitting the rest of the vote. we're going to be able to win. the numbers are starting to come together. we're seeing that. we've got a real path to win this race and let gary johnson and martin split the vote. >> neil: so they would split the vote. we'll see what happens. thanks for taking the time. >> thank you, neil. >> neil: you don't see this every day. a billionaire being investigated by the securities and exchange commission sits down for an interview that lasts better than
2 1/2 hours smoking a joint and drinking. you can bet how the rest of that went after this. >> is that a joint? or a cigar? >> no. it's marijuana inside of a tobacco -- >> like -- >> you ever had that? >> i tried one once. >> come on, man. you probably can't because of the stockholders, right? and while we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country, we never forget... that your business is our business the united states postal service. priority: you
