Tony Campolo
I always was into it, just seeing guys growing up on TV in postgame conferences and seeing how they’re dressed, glasses they’re wearing. That kind of just always was something that caught my eye. Now I got the opportunity to show off what I wear, so I just try to take advantage of it.

Tariq Ramadan
Years ago, when I was (at Stanford), you had maybe one or two teams — at one time I was part of one of those teams — you didn’t have to worry about, … Now it’s not that way in the conference.

Tyrone Willingham

Greta Thunburg
You can’t become a leader in one conference.
John C. Maxwell

Bobby Jones
Certainly, I know what to do, and when I am Vice President — and I will be — there will be contingency plans under different sets of situations and I tell you what, I’m not going to go out and hold a news conference about it.

Dan Quayle
A conference is just an admission that you want somebody to join you in your troubles.

Ryan Tannehill
I have the possibility to watch Messi in training each morning, and because of what he demonstrates he is the best player in the world, he stated during a press conference. It is a pleasure to watch him, and because of the way he plays he is an undisputed leader of the Barcelona team.
Thierry Henry
Dan Rather pulling on a sweater and thereby winning a whole new chunk of the populace: That’s television. President Reagan’s press conferences: That’s television. Keith Jackson is television. So are Kermit the Frog, instant replay, and the Fiesta Bowl.

generation, third-generation Mexican-American, he said – his words here – he considers them beyond reproach.
Steve Kornacki
I never did any training in journalism or in finance, so I really was in the deep end. I got very good at going to press conferences and nodding. I’d figure it out when I got back to the office. Charts and numbers. I’ve never been great with facts, ever, my whole life. For a journalist, that’s not a very good trait.
Sophie Kinsella
There are conferences every year where all the major coaches get together, and they talk about the issues in wrestling, what’s going to happen. There’s a major governing body, U.S.A.

Bill Engvall
The beginning point at both conferences must be that everything is a woman’s issue. That means racism in a woman’s issue, just as is anti-Semitism, Palestinian homelessness, rural development, ecology, the persecution of lesbians, and the exploitative practices of global corporations.

P. J. O’Rourke
When it comes to training imams, one needs a partner. But if we want the mosques to preach peaceful coexistence, we will have to do something about it. One goal of the conference is to find a partner for the training of imams and teachers of Islam in schools.
Wolfgang Schauble
My father? A hard drinking man from the 70’s. We actually have no pictures of my dad where he is not holding a beer. Weddings, Funerals, Water Skiing, Parent-Teacher Conference. When I got sick around him as a kid growing up, he’d always warm me up a shot of 100 proof whiskey. Never got sick… that I can remember.

Press conferences aren’t the best thing to do, but it’s part of the job.

Robert D. Hales
No press conference announcing a last film. I’d just steal away. Best way because, if by chance after two or three years something interesting comes up, I would not – like Sinatra – have to say: ‘Well, I’ve thought it over and decided to come back.’
Sophia Loren
If you haven’t taken a writing class, take a writing class. I took every class that was available in my area. I went to conferences inside and outside my area to network with people. That’s how I got my agent. I found my agent through another agent who was at a conference.
Kimberly Willis Holt
We also have a conference call feature where up to five people can talk on one Skype call.

Brian De Palma
Hillary Clinton is guilty, of all the things that Director [James] Comey stated at his press conference and Congressional hearings, and far more. He stated many things, but it’s far more and he knows that.

Victor Frederick Weisskopf
Everybody likes to go to Geneva. I used to do it for the Law of the Sea conferences and you’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.
Ernest Hollings
Every team in the Western Conference has flaws.
Charles Barkley
The debate on healthcare was not done like most of our conferences are done – meaning it was not all on television. There was this procedural feeling that the bill wasn’t done thoroughly and didn’t reflect peoples’ wishes. It’s not coincidence that upwards of 60 percent of folks in my district are against it.
Tim Griffin

Jane Haddam
Some people call it the ‘Al Jazeera spirit’ – courage, re-thinking authority, giving a voice to the voiceless. We have never been favored by the authority. The human being is the center of our editorial policy. We are not a TV station that rushes after stars, big names, press conferences, hand-shake journalism.
Wadah Khanfar
Conspiracy theories themselves are big business, of course, selling books, videos, conferences, and all kinds of merch. Then there is the economy that promotes conspiracy theories to sell goods such as supplements, survival gear, and yes, bunkers.
Annie Lowrey
In contrast to what most prosecutors do, we try to treat all individuals with complete fairness. We do not go out and hold press conferences and the like.

Joel Silver
Any form of a winning record in the conference is an accomplishment.
Jordan Knight
This conference ? of, for and about women ? is, in itself, a rainbow in the clouds. When numerous women come together and show that they care, not only for themselves but also for each other, that is the occasion when a rainbow is shining down on somebody else.
Maya Angelou
Last night, President Bush gave a prime-time press conference. It was such a big deal that Fox decided to preempt American Idol. Which made sense to me, you don’t want too many amateurs on in one night.
David Letterman
I go around the country, and I speak to colleges, conferences and thousands of people at a time, and I’m like, ‘Great. Fine. Whatever.’ Coming to speak to about 60 kids, I am scared to death.
Wil Wheaton
The fighter (like the writer) must stand alone. If he loses he cannot call an executive conference and throw off on a vice president or the assistant sales manager. He is consequently resented by fractional characters who cannot live outside an organization.

The most common post YC failure case for the companies we fund, is they’re incredibly focussed during YC on their company… and after they start doing a lot of other things. They advise companies, they go to conferences, whatever.
Sam Altman
We hope to organize team residencies and a conference bringing together professionals from Latin America and from other groups around the world who are also focusing on this issue. We want to bring them together so we can learn from each other, and then widely publicize our conclusions.

Ben Casnocha
[On Nancy Reagan:] At one photo op press conference, she toured a crack house and decried how awful it was, yet one suspected that for our Drug Czarina it had something to do with a plaid couch.
Kate Clinton
Why can’t the Arabs and Jews resolve their disagreements at the conference table like good Christians?
Warren Austin
Every day that goes by shortens our opportunity of booking it successfully. Whether it’s members pulling their condos for personal use, whether it’s a convention booking our conference center, whether it’s golf packages being booked .. not hearing makes it that much harder to accommodate them.
Bill Vaughan
They are that same group, but I’ve got my own rivalristic problems. Is that a word, rivalristic? I’ve got my own rivalristic problems in the Eastern Conference.
Shaquille O’Neal
For hard resets, conventions and conferences can be inspiring.
Kelly Sue DeConnick
During a recent press conference, former President Jimmy Carter said he could never run for president today because he doesn’t have a lot of money. Well, that and the fact that he’s the famously bad president Jimmy Carter.
Jimmy Fallon
A missions conference is a business meeting to decide the fate of the heathen.
Dwight L. Moody
I was very fortunate to grow up with parents who love to travel, so I traveled from a young age. My dad’s a heart surgeon and goes to conferences all over the world.

Jihad and the rifle alone. NO negotiations, NO conferences and NO dialogue
Abdullah Yusuf Azzam

James Dashner
We must be prepared to see an Association of Nations in conference growing into an organic system of world controls for world affairs and the keeping of the world’s peace, or we must be prepared for – a continuation of war.
H. G. Wells
Each year, we learn that customer service diminishes. You may argue it’s because the IRS budget has been cut, but I’m going to argue that it’s because the IRS chooses to spend its funds in other areas like the Affordable Care Act, bonuses, and conferences.
Ander Crenshaw
That’s the attraction of the conference circuit: it’s a way of converting work into play, combining professionalism with tourism, and all at someone else’s expense. Write a paper and see the world! I’m Jane Austen – fly me!
David Lodge
The Heartland Institute, which people mostly only know in terms of the fact that it hosts these annual conferences of climate change skeptics or deniers, it’s important to know that the Heartland Institute is first and foremost a free market think tank. It’s not a scientific organization.
Naomi Klein
A war fitness conference some time ago declared that the highest form of recreation is to go to church. The word recreation should be written re-creation. More real rest can be gained from an hour and a quarter of worship under these circumstances than by eighteen holes of golf.

Dana Gould
To put it another way: a conference is an elite meeting on equal terms; a congress is a group of elites meeting on opposite terms; a convention is a mob meeting on equal terms; a course is an elite instructing a mob; and a colloquium is a group capable of considering all these phenomena.
Malcolm Bradbury
I had given a presentation on design and happiness for quite a long while at design conferences. I had found thinking about the topic helpful for my own practice, as it forced me to consider the fundamentals, and the feedback from the audience was always enthusiastic.
Stefan Sagmeister
I did not see any major issues other than the jury substitutions. I can’t know whether there’s a problem there, until I read the transcript from the in-chambers conference, when those jurors were excused.
Catherine Crier
I have done quite a few signings at bookstores, libraries and conferences. I have received phone calls and letters from people who liked the book.

Hans Frank
I go out of my way to stay off commuter planes. I have skipped conferences because I would not fly on marginal airlines (and because of many mishaps, I also avoided flying on ValuJet).
Mary Schiavo
I am convinced that when the history of international law comes to be written centuries hence, it will be divided into two periods: the first being from the earliest times to the end of the nineteenth century, and the second beginning with the Hague Conference.
Ludwig Quidde
I want people to know we throw real parties. We don’t need more boring libertarian or conservative conferences.

We started giving presentations at practitioner conferences in 1986, and since then all of our derivatives research has been stimulated by contact with practitioners.
John Hull
It’s weird: I was in a conference room, shouting out story ideas in the voices of different characters, and it was something I had to learn because I’d never been in that atmosphere. But I think I had a quick learning curve, because this is the job I was supposed to have.
Mindy Kaling
The informed, unmanaged question. That’s the most dangerous thing at a press conference anywhere.
Ron Suskind
I’m not used to doing press conferences, and I don’t like giving interviews.
Roberto Firmino
The lesson of all history warns us that we should negotiate only when our military superiority is so convincing that we can achieve our objective at the conference table, and deny the aggressor theirs.
Richard M. Nixon
I do have the feeling that other writers can’t help you with writing. I’ve gone to writers’ conferences and writers’ sessions and writers’ clinics, and the more I see of them, the more I’m sure it’s the wrong direction. It isn’t the place where you learn to write.
Nelson Algren
I went to a mystery writers conference … and I learned a lot not only from the faculty – and in the faculty we had forensic doctors, detectives, policemen, experts in guns, etc. – but from the questions of the students.
Isabel Allende
The fact that Newark is having poetry festivals and peace conferences – all of these things are building an undeniable thesis that our city is making incredible strides forward.
Cory Booker

Natalie Portman
“I tell you,” he [Milosevic] continued, “Izetbegovic has earned Sarajevo by not abandoning it. He’s one tough guy. It’s his”. These words were probably the most astonishing and unexpected of the conference.

Jilly Cooper
Another very strong image from the first day was giving my initial press conference in the morning – going down and finding out that everything I had said, the essence of what I had said, was wrong.
William Scranton
I have received so many letters, messages, emails, testimonies of women whom I meet in international conferences, wherever it may be, who tell me, ‘It’s great that you have balanced life and work so successfully.’ I now think I have underestimated that, the ‘role model’ aspect of my life, I must say.
Isabelle Kocher

Then it’s settled,” I said. “We’ll do a dream conference call.” That love and rapture faltered. “Wait. How is it settled? How did we go from me declaring my love for you to me being okay with a dream?” “It’s Adrian Ivashkov logic. Don’t try to understand it. Just roll with it.
Richelle Mead
Let me just say that it is super wierd throwing your own bash at a conference instead of just leaching off everyone else’s, but hey, free beer, right?
Rob Malda
When [Erwin Schrödinger] went to the Solvay conferences in Brussels, he would walk from the station to the hotel where the delegates stayed, carrying all his luggage in a rucksack and looking so like a tramp that it needed a great deal of argument at the reception desk before he could claim a room.
Paul Dirac
People are waking up in their homes – without conferences. They’re waking up because life is waking them up, not because of some conference called “Body and Soul.”

Fred Upton

If we are really anxious not to have nuclear weapons in Iran, the first thing is to call an international conference on abolishing all nuclear weapons, including Israeli nuclear weapons.
Bruce Kent
I discover that some of the Eastern papers represent me as a great blasphemer, because I said, in my lecture on Marriage, at our last Conference, that Jesus Christ was married at Cana of Galilee, that Mary, Martha, and others were his wives, and that he begat children.
Orson Pratt
The president had a press conference about this this week and he said that the U.S. has no plans to attack North Korea. And then he added, ‘Like having no plan ever stopped me before.’. He has something even more deadly in store for them – we’re going to bring them democracy.
Bill Maher
Politics is quite draining. There are so many heated discussions and press conferences to cover during a convention.
Megan Alexander
I attend Internet conferences all the time, and they literally make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
Natalie Massenet
To work for better understanding among people, one does not have to be a former president sitting at a fancy conference room table. Peace can be made in the neighborhoods, the living rooms, the playing fields, and the classrooms of our country.
Jimmy Carter
I think there’s a vast difference between the Big12 and some of the other major conferences. I think it is tougher to score in this conference, just because of the emphasis on defense.
Eddie Sutton
It’s certainly easy to calculate the average attendance for Perl conferences.
Larry Wall
At a recent conference, a colleague told one of us that in IPCC discussions, some scientists have been reluctant to make strong claims about the scientific evidence, lest contrarians “attack us”. Another said that she’d rather err on the side of conservatism in her estimates, because then she feels more “secure.”
Naomi Oreskes
I had a recurring fantasy in which I took (Rudy Giuliani) out during a press conference (it was nonlethal, just something that put him out of commission for a year or so), saving America from the horror of a President Giuliani. If that sounds like I had some trouble being ‘objective,’ I did.
Michael Hastings
I have done conferences explaining that cloud is a bad idea. It’s putting all your eggs in one basket.
Michael Demon Calce
It is quite wrong for party conferences to be used as an excuse for the Commons not to sit. Conferences could be held at weekends.
John Bercow
I stand here as a black lesbian feminist, having been invited to comment within the only panel at this conference where the input of black feminists and lesbians is represented. What this says about the vision of this conference is sad, in a country where racism, sexism and homophobia are inseparable. . . .
Audre Lorde
While I’m a venture capitalist who invests in early-stage tech companies, I often feel like a professional emailer and conference call maker. I try to spend most of my time doing whatever the companies we are investors in need me to do.
Brad Feld
A few profit – and the many pay. But there is a way to stop it. You can’t end it by disarmament conferences. You can’t eliminate it by peace parleys at Geneva. Well-meaning but impractical groups can’t wipe it out by resolutions. It can be smashed effectively only by taking the profit out of war.
Smedley Butler
There are various ways of mending a broken heart, but perhaps going to a learned conference is one of the more unusual.
Barbara Pym
Good judges are always open to the possibility of changing their minds based on the next brief that they read, or the next argument that’s made by an attorney who’s appearing before them, or a comment that is made by a colleague during the conference on the case when the judges privately discuss the case.
Samuel Alito
But if you’re coming off ACL surgery, you don’t need to be having a press conference at OTAs. Every week? Really? It becomes a circus, a sideshow. It takes away from the focus of what those sessions are supposed to be about: the team.
Donovan McNabb
I wrote a book. It sucked. I wrote nine more books. They sucked, too. Meanwhile, I read every single thing I could find on publishing and writing, went to conferences, joined professional organizations, hooked up with fellow writers in critique groups, and didn’t give up. Then I wrote one more book.
Beth Revis
If any foreign minister begins to defend to the death a ‘peace conference,’ you can be sure his government has already placed its orders for new battleships and airplanes.
Joseph Stalin
There was a change in tone in terms of the [Donald] Trump who showed up in Mexico City for this press conference.
Steve Kornacki
Joe Gallager’s like a petulant child sometimes. In press conferences, for instance, when we’re talking, he’s rolling his eyes like a schoolgirl, pretending he’s not listening. It’s disrespectful and I don’t like that.
Carl Frampton
In addition, black folks need to attend green conferences, too. We just self-segregate and don’t go. They might even waive your fee if you apply on a diversity basis, because they’d be so shocked to see somebody from a different background wanting to be a part of the green movement.
Van Jones
People in the East Conference are starting to see how good the twins are. They make my job easy. I just go to the net and look for holes and they keep finding me.
Anson Carter
In a climate of tight budgets, reduced workforces and stiff competition, internal training can be a great substitute for costly offsite workshops and conferences.
Harvey Mackay
Nonviolence is really tough. You don’t practice nonviolence at conferences; you practice it on picket-lines.
Cesar Chavez
I feel blessed that I had an opportunity to be in the Big Ten for four years as a player and be in the Big Ten as a coach for eight years. To get 12 years in a conference like the Big Ten – it’s a first-class league with great towns and great fans.
Steve Alford
When it was time for parent-teacher conferences, I remember that I was always embarrassed about what my parents would hear about me!
Derek Jeter
Tennis players go into a press conference, and almost every one of them is the same. We do very little differently on a day-to-day basis.
Lleyton Hewitt
It was an idea we had when Al was in the Senate – to organize and moderate an annual conference that would look at government policy through the lens of the family to help identify ways that the family can be supported and strengthened.
Tipper Gore
Let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl; the Zionist Congress; the English Uganda proposition; the future world war; the peace conference where with the help of England a free and Jewish Palestine will be created.
Max Nordau
If a single Russian source would come forward, he would be in hot water. And in the United States, what I did appearing at that [Vladimir] Putin press conference was not worth the price.
Edward Snowden
On April 19 1943, the Bermuda conference gathered, with the participation of representatives from Britain and the United States, in order to discuss saving the Jews of Europe. In fact, the participants did everything in their power to avoid dealing with the problem.
Ariel Sharon
If we want to avoid a clash of cultures – and the jury is still out on whether we can – we’ll have to make different cultures and religions compatible with the universal nature of human rights and tolerance. But I can promise you this: Anyone who calls me an infidel at the conference will be in for a fight.
Wolfgang Schauble
I did not agree..to having my article censored. …The published report of the conference gives my name as a participant, but you will not find in it the paper I read. …Scientists as a group are no more, and no less, influenced by emotional and irrational reactions than other people are.
John Yudkin
I hope that if I ever disappear, people don’t look for me based on the last websites I visited. Kind of an awkward press conference for my parents. Officer, do you have any leads? Well, based on Mr. Finnegan’s computer entries, we think he was abducted by Sorority Sluts.
Christian Finnegan
I go to a lot of writers conferences and literary festivals that tend to be in college towns or cities, and I’m eager to see what happens if those same texts and those same questions move outside of those areas to smaller rural communities where there are surely people who read and love poetry.
Tracy K. Smith
Personally I support 14,000 kids in Zambia – I feed and clothe them – but I don’t hold press conferences about it. I don’t do it so you’ll think what a nice person I am; it’s private.
Gene Simmons
Nothing so enchants attorneys general, their eyes generally fixed on higher public office, as slinging accusations against successful financial executives. Preening press conferences and fawning media coverage are virtually guaranteed, whether or not the charges have substance.
Kenneth Langone
This weekend the Conservative Political Action Conference, CPAC, featured several speakers including Sarah Palin and Phil Robertson from ‘Duck Dynasty.’ It was a good weekend for conservatives – and a great weekend for wild animals.
Jimmy Fallon
We have Al Jazeera Arabic news, Al Jazeera English news, of course; we have three sports channels, and we have Al Jazeera Mubasher, which is a live channel that broadcasts live press conferences and symposiums and meetings. And, of course, we have Al Jazeera commentary in Arabic.
Wadah Khanfar
My brother was a big marathoner. He was a great collegiate runner at Beloit College. He won his conference’s races, and he did tons of marathons. I would go out and run with him every once in a while just to hang out with him.
Tate Donovan
I grew up in the Big East Conference for 30 years. We were a conference that was nothing. We were a bunch of schools thrown together and within five years we were one of the top two basketball conferences in the country.
Jim Boeheim
I love almost everything about my work except conferences. I am too shy in front of an audience. But I love signings and having eye contact with a reader who already knows my soul.
Paulo Coelho
Detente is a readiness to resolve differences and conflicts not by force, not by threats and sabre-rattling, but by peaceful means, at the conference table.
Leonid Brezhnev
And I would be the first to admit that probably, in a lot of press conferences over the time that I have been in coaching, indulging my own sense of humor at press conferences has not been greatly to my benefit.
Bobby Knight
But then I lock back in and I start thinking about how fun it is to compete during the playoffs and the first round, the second round, and Eastern Conference Finals. If I’m lucky enough to get here again, it will be fun to do it.
LeBron James
One thing we must understand, that if we have to change the world, we have to change human beings. People think by giving lectures, having conferences and this and that, peace will come. It will never come. A global transformation has to come for peace, for wisdom and for joy.
Nirmala Srivastava
I like to tell people that I have some of the biggest mentors in the world… they just don’t know I exist. Dave Ramsey, Sara Blakely, Oprah, Tony Robbins, Brendon Burchard – I’ve learned everything I know from their wisdom through books, podcasts and conferences.
Rachel Hollis
Reuters was completely accurate that I am concerned about the level of the market. But I also made it clear on the conference call (and I believe as Reuters reported it), that it is almost impossible to predict what a market will do in the short term. There are too many variables.
Carl Icahn
There are no grown-ups. We suspect this when we are younger, but can confirm it only once we are the ones writing books and attending parent-teacher conferences. Everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently.
Pamela Druckerman
I will keep a substantial long exposure to gold — which serves as a Jelly Donut antidote for my portfolio. While I’d love for our leaders to adopt sensible policies that would reduce the tail risks so that I could sell our gold, one nice thing about gold is that it doesn’t even have quarterly conference calls.
David Einhorn
I knew the Big Ten was one of the best conferences in the country. Every night you’re up against pros. It’s just so competitive. You can get beat by any team. That’s really what I like about the Big Ten.
Trey Burke
When so many lives are at risk, when so much killing is going on, when there’s so much chaos and suffering, isn’t the risk warranted? … And if we don’t take the risk of coming to the conference, what do we do? We let it continue?
Kofi Annan
The central question of the Chicago conference was whether the mechanisms underlying microevolution can be extrapolated to explain the phenomena of macroevolution.В  At the risk of doing violence to the positions of some of the people at the meeting, the answer can be given as a clear No.
Roger Lewin
I have been able to attend many technology conferences around the world over the years, including some of the largest, like Google I/O, Microsoft’s Developer Conference, Apple’s WorldWide Developers Conference, Oracle World, Le Web, and more.
Megan Smith
We do not have time to play at “oppositions” at “conferences.” We will keep our political opponents… whether open or disguised as “nonparty,” in prison.
Vladimir Lenin
Other countries may triumph at global conferences where world representatives vote with their hands. But America seems to win whenever the world’s people have an opportunity to vote with their feet.
Franklin A. Thomas
For 350 years we have been taught that reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man. Football’s place is to add a patina of character, a deference to the rules and a respect for authority.
Red Smith
The 1973 Labour Conference will have before it the most radical programme the Party has prepared since 1945.
Tony Benn
Don’t wallow in brainstorming. Time spent fiddling with a business plan or filling up whiteboards with ideas is time that you could spend actually launching your business and seeing if the idea floats. Launching gives you real, solid feedback, instead of the imaginary “what if” scenarios dreamed up in a conference room.
Naveen Jain
Our supportfor assault weapons ban is very broad…I think we’ve got all the police, we have all the mayors virtually – the conference of mayors, mayors against guns. We have medical experts, we have virtually dozens of religious organizations of every creed supporting us. We have just lists and lists.
Dianne Feinstein
Kenyon Martin is the 2nd best player in the Eastern Conference.
Bill Walton
Although boxing is a sport, it’s still entertainment. You’ve still got the fear, press conferences, the stare-downs. It’s all an act in some ways. My whole life I’ve been doing it. I love this side of boxing – as much as the actual fight.
David Haye
I’m sure something will pop into my head here in the midst of this press conference, with all the pressure of trying to come up with an answer, but it hadn’t yet.
George W. Bush
After New – when Newhouse bought The New Yorker, he said in one of those grand press conferences that `Bill Shawn will stay here as long as he wants to be here.’ Well, he wanted to be here until he died, but he wasn’t allowed to.
Nat Hentoff
If [lawmakers] lose elections in part because of their votes on the background-check bill or their position on the terror gap bill, then there will be a rethinking of this issue within the Republican conference.
Chris Murphy
It seems a shallow observation, but… the Tory Conference are not an attractive lot, are they? I mean, if all those people were born in the same village, you’d blame pollution, wouldn’t you?
Jeremy Hardy
I’ve never seen a prosecutor hold a press conference to discredit the victim.
Al Sharpton
[Donald] Trump has said that I would like to sit down and talk to people, work things out. Well, guess what? Some of the evidence is that was, he went straight to Mexico and sat down and had a conference and a meeting directly with Pea Nieto to go over all this. OK, that.
Kimberly Guilfoyle
