CHARLIE KIRK (HOST) And I want to pick that up after the break because it is driving people nuts. And I'm afraid, Mr. Speaker, if we, as the figures in the media, the people that have audiences, aren't clear about the proper course of action, that this is gonna get wildly out of control. In a way that people will act you know, I don't want them to act violently. I don't. I'm trying to preach peace as much as possible. But Mr. Speaker, you know his history. It's almost like they're being provoked, and I don't like that.
