It is that is not going to end well on the US ambassador friend of mine was in the meeting with US ambassador. To Ukraine. Over the weekend and the ambassador expects. It's going to be bad I think we all should keep our eyes on Ukraine. And say a special prayer for them during the holiday season but boy what a week it was what a week it was last week. I was doing three weeks on the radio here two weeks for. Sandy beach one week for Tom and in it was -- real pleasure. In on just the listener in the -- they called me and I was real pleased rule rule on -- Albrecht took up weeks off after this hard work folks very hard work very very hard work it's me a lot easier by the -- team. Who're don't even realize I'm talking about that right now. But it's made a lot easier by the heat team Jo and Chelsea but it's really hard work but I took a week off and went to the sun. After three weeks of working way too hard. And afterward came back here and into buffalo and snuck into New York City. On Wednesday of last week. A couple of friends of mine David DiPietro was an assemblyman. From actually my assemblyman and -- -- war the lovely place to live on earth. And another assemblyman from Rochester area. Bill know -- Called me and asked me they are trying to tell me that you know the Donald Trump should run for for governor. And hide the Arab Donald Trump had said. In Europe and in news interview that it's nice to think about that happening he's very honored but he didn't wanna run so they asked me well we don't wanna take no for an answer. And through the media I mean we're trying you know from him. So they asked me to set -- meaning with meeting with mr. trump I've worked with mr. trump in the past and a lot of people around him. So we set that meeting up in. Is happening last Wednesday we had David in and some -- As well as some Republican county chairs and some Republican operatives. Go and meet with Donald Trump it was one of the most interesting things that I've been through a must say and certainly in the last several years. Guy you've seen in his building. His digs so to speak on on television. It's quite palatial -- -- offices are in the trump tower now you and I we all live here in buffalo. We live our lives in a certain level of comfort. And you know we all know it's cold here and we we bottom bundle up for. You know what we go to New York City things -- little difference will be warmer in the buildings a little bit bigger error. In today's larger scale there but when you're going to meet with Donald Trump. No that's a scaled it's very hard to describe -- trying to describe it for him. And then I'm gonna talk about. What kind of for meeting it was so the chances of him running for governor. And dead -- DiPietro is gonna guard join us for a little bit today as well is assemblyman bill and OJ from Rochester -- that give you bear. -- their take on the meeting. We have a Baker's dozen people there. What -- mean it's it. We we got popular I flew over with the sentiment DiPietro. It's way too early in the morning for me to be responsible to get to play and I would -- at 7 o'clock in the morning I cannot be responsible. So. The assemblyman delivered me. They are to safely in the morning by picking me up I think it was zero dark thirty. I'm pretty sure it was zero dark thirty we went on down to buffalo airport by the way the easiest airport on the planet as you all know another reason to -- buffalo. Who won in two in Manhattan we got there. And I or you know 9 on 8 o'clock Garrett took the our long cab ride into the city and David -- deep -- cab as they say. Right out in front of the trump -- you've never seen that trump tower. It's something right out of his story -- you walk in the first of all whole front shiny copper gold it's as gorgeous as the beautiful great -- last two hours ago in -- and all of for a review. From floor to ceiling of probably four stories of an atrium in that book and building is marble all the way to -- reminds me of I'm -- view we don't have any bones like that. And I don't know they have a lot of buildings like that in your city but mr. trump spared no expense putting that. That together we met all of -- people downstairs. And then took the the climb and the in the elevator. Up to mr. Trump's week now let me tell you something when you take up to mr. -- week. It's not like -- pushed you know he pushed that seventeenth floor form -- he sends down -- Butler by the way. I don't know what else to call him because he was bodily. Definitely bubbling he'd have -- everybody up. Senator Cathy Marshall from Saratoga. Wanted to buy something I'll buy a book removed for mr. trump assignment we Europe they're so. The Butler went over and made sure she got a book at the bookstore right downstairs selling all of Trump's. Because and books and -- water fuel -- -- And our team out of the elevator went all the way to the top of trump tower -- -- on -- there's some most of -- -- Certainly seen on. The apprentice at the same. -- receptionist EC there. And you know base 34 people immediately come -- and start asking you can take your coat and I can make it -- committed to prop via Munich. You were being bottle to death. But they put this in two. Huge conference I've been some big conference like this one takes the case. I suspected Donald Trump said what's the largest conference room on the planet. In his news his builders said well you know this one he said I want one that's twice that size because Utley went back please. These huge huge huge huge and surrounded by windows windows right over Central Park. You -- beautiful views of Central Park on the movies and on the news. This one's better because Donald Trump's view you can him that he doesn't tolerate something less than others -- you all. But we sat there you know. Deeply. Some -- patronize. The cast -- On the -- over there's going to be a -- meeting but he was wondering what Donald Trump would serve for launch. And we we -- what kind of menu billionaire as it is in news. In his kitchen in his office. And a date. Some of DiPietro bad. That it was going to be something special something. To -- ours something underclass. I bet we're gonna -- coaches that was -- And well no -- what you know we have a little bit later but this was a very -- mean we were supposed to meet from. 1130. Until 1 o'clock last -- Mr. trump way ahead said no one of them run for governor. Before we got there he'd agreed to the meeting just being nice thought. He was. He saw that this is an important delegation meet up Karl kept calling -- important to him. When our delegation was all freshman first elected. People assemblyman. And senators -- would only. Been serving first term. But still -- probably very important group that was flattering but also true in a lot of ways because. Nobody else had the guts to go ask for a meeting. And tell him he should run for. In fact I think there's a lot of people the Republican Party who were afraid. Of him running for governor. Certainly if -- Democrat I would be afraid. But I'll tell you we sat there and pick our seats and we put so once here and so there. And we moments later in walks Donald Trump and it's nice of them guys Paul. I don't know if you've seen that on television but he's Paul if you didn't make any money in real estate development he might have made a few blocks in the NBA. He's all night at seven foot tall but maybe you know. Maybe justices persona makes him seem taller -- -- An average but he's -- while six foot he's got -- -- But he's got the news 3000 dollar suits 5000 dollars suits some 500 dollar pocket square and the jacket. And that every so. Carefully -- here it is. Witches. Just -- magnificent in person as it is. On. Video. On the apprentice. And he sat there any -- the meeting he he welcomed everyone. And he said I understand why accuracy. Understand that your to be running for governor and I -- spent some time talking to you that. It's not something I've really ever considered before but I want to hear your case. And we started. The meeting was supposed to go from 1130 until. Mean you do the math that's in our path. We walked out of here. Two. To ten something like that. He was interest me toys have been he was varied interest. End. Interest in the in the and the logic interested in the opportunity I don't know that -- interested in running. Bush will talk about that during the -- idea that that one thing I was hoping would happen did happen. And that was Yvonne -- Markey amendment and that is a woman. That is very impressive beautiful really Smart -- the business line really good ideas murder. In ways to make money for business -- has their own fashion line shoes. On the issue -- -- bit -- and it's a good bucket issues. She walked in there each one of the most sparkling person you've ever seen but Tyson and television does not do her justice. The guy you see on television. Mr. trump I think it's pretty much the same type of it is his personalities exactly. He would note TV cultural. And officer Donald he's the same guy in both places. But about -- looks a lot different I mean she walked into the room and all it's turned. And I think that's a problem for somebody you like Donald Trump must at his daughter very proud of her. But all heads turned she she she speaks very intelligence and she's gorgeous. She lights of the room like Christmas tree. And she said she -- a great idea -- -- -- considerate and well I know one thing if -- Basra and use the companies are in good hands. With his daughter and his son. Mom and my understanding is that the daughter and son are are are finding this very interest. I'm relatives did what you think. Donald Trump running for governor of your Tuesday. He promised us that he would think about it he didn't say no the NC yes but the fact that we were able to move him from no. Maybe I think these greens is significant. Com. You know the Republican Party has already has some interest in candidates out there. We'd look at. -- Reno. Rob mastery news county executive from down which sets the -- keys. Very impressive here -- with a lot of leadership experience. A very bold vision for where we want to take the stage. Really strong Republican values and have Carl Paladino who's also talking about running if certain. Let's say -- measures not demands measures he wants are met. Including. He wants -- -- -- New York State Senate leader. On -- cohorts. And the new York state assembly leader Brian -- to be forced to resign. And if a governor candidate does not the man that when he announces. Mr. Paladino says he -- support. And he well he's intending to run on the conservative line. And we'll talk about that as well. I'm not -- I can talk about my experience with mr. Paladino on what I think about his possibility of running on the seed line. It's been a little bit of time -- with -- is the manager of his campaign. But the entrance of Donald Trump into this race would be incredibly interest incredibly. Humid it's something. -- this bid and 77 campaigns I've worked on -- 77 campaigns in several different countries. And if Donald Trump runs against personal up from runs on as a Republican he gets the nomination. But second of all he runs against Andrew Cuomo it will be the most brutal epic. -- that on like race you've ever seen in your life you'll you'll. Make sure you tell your children to watch is it will be nothing there's been elected before and they'll be nothing like it ever again. So what was it right back with that this is Michael Punto. And for Tom hourly on news -- 930 WB Dan. This ain't coming from Dover on the we -- the. Thousand. Okay. We're back. -- Tom our show. On news -- the WB -- this is Michael put in for Tony news don't have the ways he's not here today. He's off for the week RB through Friday. And I'll do my best to keep you entertained but in the meantime. We were talking about the upon the prospect of Donald Trump running for governor of New York against. Andrew Cuomo I'm curious what you think we know that. Carl Paladino is threatening to run a certain conditions are met people are taken very seriously. We know that. Donald Trump might run he's on maybe not know. And we know of course that Andrew -- -- we know that. Rob mastery though the county executive -- progress is going to run. A very good -- Our -- best -- if you've ever met him I've been very briefly with when I was traveling the state with Karl. A very good -- He's not he doesn't have the money that that let's say somebody like Donald Trump for Carl Paladino might we've also got. Steve McLaughlin who is and a member of the legislature -- he doesn't have. Much. Money himself and certainly got conservative very conservative values. Agree. A favorite of the Tea Party certainly from his district. But of course the one who really runs. The gamut of the Tea Party the one who. Really attracts the rank and file folks who were member of that movement is Carl Paladino. Com and for good reason he spent a lot of time with them cultivating them helping that they were the core of the reason why he won the Republican primary one of the very big reasons the Republican primary in 2010. So who do you want to -- For governor are you big Cuomo -- you like that say activists call. 8030930. Here -- news radio 930 WB and this is the most important election form many. Many different reasons many different reasons. That is first of all. If you think your taxes are high now wait until the lame duck. In term of Governor Cuomo he won't have to run again so you can raise your taxes with impunity. I'm also if you think. Running someone against anyone against Cuomo is going to be easy it's going to be hard I've said this before it again. State senator Jesus H Christ could not beat. Andrew Cuomo. No way not I don't care if the if the debate was dawn on of the cross it he would not win he would not win. It Cuomo was a juggernaut around here. Alitalia rob mastery you know if he doesn't raise something on the minds of four -- probably thirty million marks. He's not competitive and cowboys. According to last report. 27 point eight million dollars in the bank my guess is after some several months of fundraising since July with the last report he's probably got. Goodness gracious probably got over thirty. The 35 minute if he runs against rob mastering or any other unnamed that doesn't or person without money it is up -- all that much more. But if and I'm sorry if if Donald Trump bronze. Alitalia into what will be raising money most of the time. You'll be out their rates probably 02 -- partly because liberals in New York State across the country could not content to the idea of governor Donald strong. But the date. If it comes the date but it. And Donald Trump announces for office. The the fundraisers the person towards your fundraising for Andrew Cuomo will most certainly. -- -- there would be going to double maybe triple. Rather spend in fact I don't think Donald Trump would have to spend as much money as global. He could spend less than the incumbent governor and win and I think. It would be very competitive I think it would be very difficult you think people are are tough on it. On Andrew Cuomo and I'm sorry if you think people -- telephone on. I'm Carl Paladino. If you think the media was tough on him wait to see what they do with cultural. They're gonna try and ripped to -- now we said that to mr. trump in the meeting and he scoffed. I mean I don't know -- that was the best cough I ever saw if you look at -- in the dictionary they would say see Donald Trump is that we -- off. An -- you know we said that they're gonna they're gonna ripped to shreds and he said come on you don't think they've crawled all the -- my backside right now. These people have have done everything -- -- -- you know he refers to the Democrats of course because he spent a lot of time. Are talking about and the president dispersant advocate which many people think hurt him. Maybe many people think that he's a Byrd third in the and that that ruins has credibility. Because he was out there beaten up on that issue he started being attacked by the White House the house machine and all of their -- offense in the media. And he took a pummeling he took eight pummeling but he stood tall. I think that he would be able to withstand an QB it was David he has he's not the most thick skinned guy in the world if -- Rosie O'Donnell took a swing you would you take the swing back featured. He -- her more than once in the in Twitter and other places he doesn't take criticism. Lightly. I'm not saying that sets him off and it turns an engineer responsible person I'm just saying. That if you criticize him you better be ready for an answer as he gives an answer every single time in the terrorism. To run for governor in this day. You gotta be ready to take what ever comes down. I was told. -- some Somalis remember the day that Carl won the primary. We had a big party at the that's we're going the most beautiful office building on plan. And that that that first for -- -- you know and all winding staircase we set the stage. That became synonymous with -- campaign. And that might that we -- My wife and I -- I'd never stand with my community when -- when it's their moment I was trying to deceive the picture from the crowd and I went up in the balcony looking. -- victory speech we beat. Rick Lazio's the establishment candidate. By record numbers -- I think we won I think it was -- lines of 64% of the vote in the Republican primary. And we were challenging the favorite. That's tremendous that will stand for ever I think Carl Paladino will hold that record for beating the establishment candidate in the primary. I think certainly from my lifetime and maybe life terms on. But I stamina my wife my way we're Carl was basking in the applause it was one beautiful -- -- -- And my wife turnaround I mean -- -- -- cry. And I said I'm not crying for. Crisis he reached over took my cheek and took the tear up my cheek as she said you are occurring on trying to fake it what's wrong I said you know what's wrong. It's gonna get nothing but worse from here. Because the Republicans when you compete with Republicans -- compete with your own party Democrats against Democrats there are some things that you won't do there are some things that you won't say. But when you run a Democrat for Republicans especially Republican. Swinging for the fences like Carl Paladino verses a juggernaut like Andrew Cuomo who feels entitled to the office and will do anything anything. To win anything. You're gonna get a beating and we got a beating -- that night one of Carl's clothes advisors can not mean he says it. If you think we've had a hard until now. Just get ready because it's gonna rain down on you -- like. Like pummel a pummeling from a big -- and he wants it rained down really. Really hard it was an awful experience. That the attacks that we took from. From the Cuomo camp -- from the mean we were attacked by most ridiculous people for its. I'm pain. June of the attacks came from every angle. An and I tell you that kind of attack if -- I knew when I was told by this gentleman. -- -- -- Bit -- that -- that this was gonna happen if he said it was never experienced guy I knew was coming down and he came down harder than I even expected. But. -- some of -- he was tougher -- I would -- If you if you think the beating on -- -- the beating on crop will be tenfold because. He could win. Conservative like are winning in and blew the darkest Blue States like New York. Was always going to be a heavy lift Steve -- But you know trump is not necessarily conservative Republican he's what he calls but trump. What do you think about that. Who you support from -- Also need to threes -- mountaineer star 930 on your cellphone.

Very interesting -- He won he was not supported by the party not supported by the people who were arguing with the Democrat party. He snuck in there and one the primary in the anyone the general. An interest in cat I'll tell you what they were in their choosing of the new minority leader since the Republicans won. Via. The legislature starting in January. There are choosing the Democratic Party choosing new minority leader and pat Burke from what I understand stood up -- it. And this guy's got some huge stones. He's no slouch.

Now listen. If you don't think. Donald Trump would run for governor of New York in most my friends don't think he's going to you weren't in the meeting I was. If you think Donald Trump is just flirting just to get some. Publicity because he signed a new contract with the apprentice. You were in the meeting that. You weren't even close to them. Because when we walked and we went from a polite Donald Trump to an interest in -- now I don't know that he's gonna run. But I'll tell you at that meeting showed me the he's concerned enough about New York State. To think about running and that's what he's doing we've asked him to just think about. Take it back with his family for Christmas he has his family together this year and they're down in a Palm Beach. And we asked them to just think about it and talk about it and when we. Asked him just to thank in -- he thought that was very kind we didn't put him in -- corner and -- we need you read -- and right now. He said well OK after the holidays we want the same group to get back together again and come back to my office. And will -- I'll tell you what happened we talked about what we came up. But. Does that sound -- and -- -- and socket at me now my friends who have worked with him for years of people in the Republican Party in New York City. And those in Albany are all saying. This man has played Hamlet. More than Richard Burton and they may be right I'll tell you mr. trump is very very sensitive to that his staff is very sensitive to that. He's not gonna come out and flirt with service that the -- have publicly said. But he's flirting in Manassas hour -- Discussions in the media. Army hasn't said one thing either way he's won he's not missing anything until after the holidays. But he got out here for these very concerned about that if he comes out. And that's and says he's thinking about it this time around. You better take note I'm telling you better take note argue chairman Republican chairman up there -- think it's not gonna happen. Now you might wanna hold your bets. And could not say if somebody put it -- of I have a precedent -- put a hundred bucks on because. Mr. trump who -- the headache. And the guys were you know a billion box I don't know she's worth worth a lot of money -- -- night. Why would want this head he's got a TV show if he says may -- publicly in January. Hold your hats -- Because maybe I think in this context is about as close to yes as any of the media I've seen. He's -- I tell you what by the end of that meeting he was lit up lit up. He was talking about Frankie you're talking about economic development he was talking about. The fact that we are the lowest ranking. State number fifty of all fifty states. And business friendliness people. Who were surveyed found. Said that New York is the -- the worst I mean. That really weighed heavily on mr. trump. He thought it was an awful that also don't forget we've had. -- very interesting character elected mayor of of New York City mr. -- COR who was the last Sandinista. Just laughed. Vladimir -- The character wants to raise taxes are by city block. And it's an amazing. Calories liberal -- element of our administrative programs and happy new year New York City in the only person who can keep him in check. Is the governor of New York now Andrew Cuomo will even have trouble if he doesn't believe in the Sandinista doctrine like -- tons. Cuomo will try to rein him and he won't be able to the old person's going to be able to rein in the inquiries say in east down in the York city. Would be a strong Republican governor who's active. On the Republican the can beat into Cuomo and it will be tough to beat him even with Donald is don't. This is Michael Prudhoe in fort Tom Bauerle. On news radio 930 WP.
