Tracy Morgan Dennis and Callahan on AT&T hotline. X series. We've got to ask him more tools to eskimos daughter is a beautiful thing about his daughter via the justice he does have a daughter. But the funniest line -- that was. He has three sons in the had them when he was young and he's is one of the sons is older than he is -- at the at the which that's a tough -- -- I don't how that how Malone owns all the Craig. Chris in Connecticut hey Craig good morning. Yeah hurt our guys got player that is true about the way. And oh explain you why it was eight year loose all your body your site here. Stopped there it doesn't change. What. That is removed around it there or revealing. What authorities there OK right. So it makes a significant difference in all our all 100 that he can't I wish I was too young to one point okay. Then if you -- made a big difference I mean. What started out you know I was -- Six point pick and choose their words and I want to -- this little. He's made a big big difference are also level washboard half now which they -- -- You know back and I had. You might -- also went from like 67 inches. The 2930. Depend on the as the patent will now. So it makes it really big difference I mean if you start now know whatever. It just started how would you if true this is different -- -- -- I'll talk to Greg Greg help W 6066. Foot six foot 188 east -- -- is 29. I don't believe that or the nine point whatever he says. It's OK -- don't are not -- anything -- on the -- my own story didn't. It's just didn't -- it should motivated to do whatever you got his Gunner you're gonna. Dino did do it he said it doesn't work that way as far you haven't -- ruler you know I've gone in and -- on the ruling would need -- ruler of discuss that he gained like 33%. Or 2%. Any disappointment when the united -- is like -- yes and it's like merely first -- -- And yet Horry got pregnant I -- -- me angina. Nine inch waist with that is for compartment Bobby Valentine in -- that is making them. Well we are trying to change the subject and it keeps going back to pianist and a -- yeah that's true we contrast Tracy Morgan but that would have little disjointed and have been funny he's not -- he's just not a morning thinking it's just such a I'm not a morning per Carolina. But he's and again it's genuine you know. Yes not like an act and I built -- -- say there's a that there's a crazy insane factor there right I'm and I just thought it was -- trip and I should remember we talked -- one comedic in this what's off limits. It was a woman it was a Lendl you're sure to Lenny when he was and -- out -- at least -- now no no but anyway it was -- what's off limits and she said flat out. Handicapped children nothing else. Open else though there was an interesting Nancy I think about it so handicapped adults okay kids who are -- I mean that's in her mind. Is the the bottom -- would tell you it's something -- else beyond him to Tracy Morgan wouldn't tell you what not and and he has an older brother that's -- palsy. And you know he. Went to get a tough joked that obviously tough life. It is you -- -- -- -- question his father was a drug -- came back from Vietnam addicted to heroin it's got a lot of stuff yeah like yeah. But when you say nothing's off limits and says what about -- -- that's obviously off limits Jersey -- is right. If -- went to this tough time of his brother and India to protect them became kind of his you know when these deals were. In a comedy became the outlet and -- from the tough childhood that's fine but -- -- nothing is off limits but I think. I think what he took offense Stewart took offense to what he's trying to point out is his style is to not. Point out people make fun of them this stuff -- all about him. This is what I did this is how screwed up was this happen it's it's more about his life experience as opposed looking out of the audience and making fun of the fact dire the you know the general Paul aren't short there would have the case may -- make fun of people. Comedy this stuff is observational suppose about his alive -- DNC a pack your. -- -- Ordered to cripple our commitment that I had a daughter that.
