Some people say this is exploiting children and it is the wrong with use of children and you -- I completely agree I think that the presidency of the of the United States and the weight of the presidency should be enough for the president to stand up the fact that he and stand up.
And announce his new reforms and gun control and having a visual of the president's back being capped by a bunch of -- -- is really not the -- that we're looking forward the inauguration around the corner.
-- -- a second term president who as a man he's a stand -- surrounded by other adults and say we have the backs of children not the I'm not the other way around.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- what you said -- we have the backs of children by doing it this way what you're suggesting is anyone against us -- against kids anyone who doesn't agree with my policies.
It's a knowing that we should her children that we should Hartman and got to allow them to be -- yeah.
Applicable U value below the line really for the president this -- -- there have to be able to articulate its message it's a bit intellectual conversation.
Okay it's not gonna be buoyant -- -- What about the three people around this table of all saying it's exploitative of children if I shouldn't do it and you say it's just -- Central Park looking for a date.
We're not using kids as props it called -- it is is on the for the New York Stock Exchange listening to Al conversation.
I say -- so called a second the cost on say it is legitimate political theater.
The president won't support to push his measures through congress if he gets that support by using children.
That's what he's doing I don't think is despicable at all and you -- -- I'm a mother of two and there are so many ways to get points of -- I mean are we gonna ask children about whether or not people should be on welfare get food stamps -- -- here.
Stories about people who are suffering.
Because they don't have a job and unemployment still -- I think every children and for every one of his points.
I mean I understand where the children are coming from but I just don't think it's their place talk about it seriously.
Yes hi thanks Nicole back the American music -- do you think that the -- Who I tend to think the -- has gone overboard on this and that -- is almost hysterical reaction.
To just children in the background when the president makes.
A legislative push it's not just children in the back -- -- every choice and every decision is completely calculated.
And I completely -- Charles are we saying the people who -- against this legislation hate kids.
Are we saying that there aren't fathers and aren't mothers who you'll saying that spot did you think the implication -- I think that that's exactly what the message isn't I think that that's horrible.
I think that the what we know we can't make -- -- -- that kids are not.
To be used I'd get a book as a backdrop for the president to push across legislation's that we can this faces saying that this is a reminder though what we're about whether this is about probably has seen a total editorial sandy hook if we don't have the kids behind -- we have as it is their message here that's saying.
You know what -- it was a detective let's let's coming across as if it wasn't a good idea before and let -- yeah.
In the for -- presidential campaign at a magazine that wives and children were off limits.
In other words don't pick on my wife don't pick on my kids okay use the same you know.
You said this then -- why would you bring someone else's children on -- -- when the president was pushing for Obama can making a legislative push on occasion he was surrounded by doctors adults L dot com unless.
But don't -- -- people who was he using the medical.
Professional and -- -- really hadn't been agility -- is not a legitimate.
I think is -- -- they're adults that's the issue but I went some people just dressed up in scrubs that was it -- I think actors are not you have the last book.
I just because we can't even imagine why -- -- thought this was a good idea.
Mean we have -- intelligent people sitting at a table if something's sunny for the stock exchange were all sitting here saying.
Good idea who thinks this is acceptable and I can't imagine anyone does and anybody who does -- -- looking parents say.
Why am -- using it had to do something like -- you make.
