York city -- blume book is very much pro gun control of one around next guest -- help with him.
He asked -- that if he would be willing to give -- his -- security detail look at this.
They're former head doing Jason -- -- Brooklyn -- in the spirit of gun control you disarm your entire security team.
You will things get right back -- get back to me.
Would you like -- have my -- Mayor Bloomberg white.
Like why can you defend yourself but not.
The majority of Americans I mean look at look at the team of security guys hang on an advocate for -- -- -- 234.
Five -- -- the probably more.
Tom well that video has gone viral the man in the video is Jason the -- he's the -- of Hollywood hypocrites and he joins us now.
UN after it did you ambushed him.
And I think this was he's pretty straightforward and I would consider an aggressive journalism a question that should be.
On that the tongues of most.
Press members today and it's very simple if he -- Michael Bloomberg has his own personal swat team protecting him and he should because he's the mayor of New York City.
Then why would he go out there and at the Washington Post called him the most prominent and deep pocketed advocate for gun control -- tried to restrict.
The rights of Americans New Yorkers to protect themselves and their families from you know possible home invasions or.
You know -- you up other other violent crimes that you would agree that the threat level against people like now Bloomberg is a great deal high out from the threat level against the it's above and person in their own -- amid the threat level is different business -- and that I don't -- is Mayor Bloomberg for having.
But you don't go ahead -- in the spirit of gun control if he wants to if he says that guns.
Are the reason why we have violent crimes and the less -- will be equal less crime.
Then he should lead by example and -- clearly he wouldn't go ahead and lead by example in fact.
He he -- presume you know he had NYPD officers guarding him.
Are presumably -- -- armed armed with with with firearms that have around magazine rounds of a fifteen so why -- -- trying to restrict New Yorkers and other Americans he's working conjunction with the Obama administration.
To limit magazine capacities to eliminate a certain farms I mean this is hypocrisy all right you asked him if you he wanted -- -- -- -- soda and catalyst that gos are just I want to make sure that our mayor is properly hydrate and development.
-- -- -- -- I and I -- ever thought what cost 32 outside those.
If if there was -- and the legal substance in that area it was the yeah like everything else so I do have a -- even as a private citizen didn't.
But more likely Bloomberg is gonna have to sort of security you know I -- -- -- Stewart.
-- we understand you know celebrities but.
When you open and newspapers not celebrities that that you know we're shot overnight or robbed and stuff like this unless you know happened before and until parking space at the same time is Chris Brown.
You know I really integrated thing about these celebrities have a problem so I want I think Jason was spot on with this -- and so to life.
And I'm not I'm not critical I'm just asking him why -- books that -- I think you're pretty straight.
-- I think it was pretty straightforward question and and and after word I mean his security team actually followed me down the block claimed they had security jurisdiction.
To question me and security jurisdiction is not even a legal.
Term -- one former New York prosecutor told me yesterday then they asked for my date of birth I mean do so.
I had to essentially show why wise idea in order to ask Bloomberg a question but in the that's bizarre world -- -- even my beautiful.
-- just -- should just ask that a critical question.
Of a prominent politician that was very good yes that's very good very good reason -- gotta say we're on the screen right now you can see that's where you -- being asked to provide ID before you can ask any questions and they falling today on the street they followed me twice while wants to.
To questioned -- why wasn't show identification I asked that the NYPD officer officer stopped -- if he had jurisdiction.
He said he had security jurisdiction which again doesn't exist he can investigate.
On anything in DC.
Then he followed me a -- a block later and ask for my date of birth now why in the world would you need my date of birth is this how we're going to treat.
Members of the press are we going to a go ahead and investigate.
And and question and pull their personal information just because we don't like the type of questioning and reasoning may pro -- -- politician excusing Michael warmer Bloomberg we are not peasants who work for you.
You work for us.
I think it was a comment on the media -- because everyone -- what you did is so outrageous when in fact all you did was ask a very basic question that was on the minds of every American so immediate -- media wasn't -- -- You wouldn't seem so outrageous.
Well we're gonna we're gonna put the entire video by the way on our FaceBook page that -- official presence -- it's gonna say yes it's great video yes yes that's -- -- -- What's the whole thing it's really good stuff if Jason thanks to bring -- to thank you sir --
