This week The Brody File looks at Donald Trump's big upcoming meeting with evangelicals. Plus, an interview with conservative talk show host Dennis Prager where we talk about whether GOP unity is attainable. Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO

ANOTHER EDITION OF "THE

BRODY FILE."

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

IT'S JUNE.

HEY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

THAT MEANS.

OH, I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS.

IT IS A MONTH FROM THE

CONVENTION.

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, THIS

MONTH, A BIG MEETING,

DONALD TRUMP AND

EVANGELICAL LEADERS.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THE DONALD IS GOING TO SIT

DOWN WITH HUNDREDS OF

EVANGELICAL LEADERS, IN A

ROOM, TRUMP TOWER,

JUNE 21st.

AND "THE BRODY FILE" IS

TRYING TO GET INTO THAT

MEETING.

IT IS A PRIVATE,

CLOSED-DOOR MEETING, BUT,

HEY, WE HAVE CONNECTIONS.

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE

FOLKS THAT WILL BE AT THE

MEETING.

JAMES DOBSON, "FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY."

TONY PERKINS, PAULA WHITE,

RALPH REID, THERE ARE SO

MANY HERE, THAT WE COULD

KEEP LISTING THEM, BUT

WE'RE NOT GOING TO DO THAT

BECAUSE I NEED A LITTLE

MORE AIR TIME -- NO, THE

REASON IS THAT THERE ARE

SO MANY THAT ARE GOING TO

BE THERE.

THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY

IMPORTANT REASON.

TIME, RIGHT OFF THE BAT,

FOR A BRODY FILE

COMMENTARY.

LOOK, HERE IS THE DEAL AT

THIS MEETING.

WHAT WE UNDERSTAND IS

THERE IS GOING TO BE ABOUT

30 OR SO EVANGELICAL

LEADERS THAT WILL MEET

WITH HIM, AND THEN THEY'LL

BRING IN A COUPLE MORE

HUNDRED OR SO.

THERE COULD BE UP TO 400

LEADERS AT THIS MEETING.

WHAT WILL THEY ASK HIM?

YES, THEY'LL TALK ABOUT

POLICY.

THEY'LL TALK ABOUT ISRAEL.

THEY'LL TALK ABOUT RADICAL

ISLAM.

AND THEY'RE GOING TO WANT

TO GET DONALD TRUMP'S TAKE

ON ALL OF THAT.

AND THEY'LL ASK HIM ABOUT

THE SUPREME COURT.

BUT DONALD TRUMP HAS

PREEMPTED THAT STRIKE BY

PUTTING OUT HIS OWN

SUPREME COURT LIST THAT

HAS GONE VERY WELL SO FAR.

ONE THING THEY ARE -- AND

YOU KNOW THIS IS GOING TO

COME UP -- THAT THEY'RE

GOING TO DISCUSS IS

TEMPERMENT.

CAN DONALD TRUMP BE, IN

ESSENCE, SECURE, OR AT

LEAST THEY FEEL SECURE

THAT HIS TEMPERMENT IS

OKAY, AND HE'S NOT GOING

TO GO OFF THE RAILS AND

START CURSING UP A STORM.

IT IS NOT VERY

CHRISTIAN-LIKE, AND I

THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

THAT THEY GET SOME

ASSURANCE THAT DONALD

TRUMP IS ABLE TO SOMEHOW

REIN IT IN.

IF THEY FEEL MORE

COMFORTABLE ABOUT THAT,

THEN IT WILL BE

COMFORTABLE ALL IN ALL.

SO IT IS IN DONALD TRUMP'S

BEST INTEREST TO TONE IT

DOWN AND MAKE SURE HE

ACTUALLY DOES WHAT HE

SAYS.

> ALL RIGHT, LET'S MOVE

ON NOW TO OUR INTERVIEW

WITH DENNIS PRAGER,

CONSERVATIVE TALK SHOW

HOST OUT IN CALIFORNIA AT

THE RENEWAL PROJECT EVENT.

WE WERE THERE AS WELL.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK

WITH HIM ONE-ON-ONE ABOUT

DONALD TRUMP, G.O.P.

UNITY, AND IS THERE HOPE

FOR AMERICA.

DENNIS PRAGER, LET ME ASK

YOU FIRST, DONALD TRUMP,

THE REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION --

HAVE YOU SEEN A CRAZIER

ELECTION IN YOUR LIFETIME

THAN THIS?

I HAVE NEVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE IT.

TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST, IN

ANY EVENT, I HAVE WRITTEN

THIS AND BROADCAST THIS, I

AM NOT HAPPY WITH EITHER

CANDIDATE.

OUT OF 330 MILLION

CANDIDATES, TO COME UP

WITH DONALD TRUMP AND

HILLARY CLINTON, OR FOR

THAT MATTER, BERNIE

SANDERS, IS SAD TO ME.

HAVING SAID THAT, I SAID

FROM THE BEGINNING, AND I

WAS EXTREMELY CRITICAL OF

DONALD TRUMP.

I'M A CONSERVATIVE

REPUBLICAN.

I'LL GO FURTHER, I'M A

RELIGIOUS CONSERVATIVE

PERO.

REPUBLICAN.

I DID NOT WANT DONALD

TRUMP FOR CHARACTER

REASONS, AND HE WAS MY

17th CHOICE OF 17

CANDIDATES, BUT I SAID IN

A NATIONAL REVIEW AND ON

MY RADIO SHOW, THAT IF HE

IS NOMINATED, I WILL VOTE

FOR HIM.

I CONTINUE TO HOLD THAT

VERY STRONGLY.

BECAUSE THE GREATER GOOD

IS THE DEFEAT OF THE LEFT.

THE LEFT IS HURTING MY

COUNTRY, AS IT HAS HURT --,

INDEED IS DESTROYING THE

UNITED STATES.

NOT EVERY PERSON ON THE

LEFT IS A BAD PERSON, BUT

THERE IS AMPLE HISTORY OF

PEOPLE WHO ARE DECENT

PERSONALLY AND WHO HAVE

TERRIBLE IDEAS.

I'M NOT ATTACKING THEM

PERSONALLY, BUT LEFTISM IS

RUINING OUR COUNTRY, OUR

SCHOOLS, OUR CULTURE, OUR

CHILDREN, OUR ECONOMY, OUR

INTERNATIONAL

RELATIONSHIPS -- YOU NAME

IT, IT HAS RUINED IT.

SO THE DEFEAT OF THE

DEMOCRATS IS THE GREATER

GOOD, AND THAT'S WHY I'M

VOTING FOR TRUMP.

David: WE HEAR A LOT

ABOUT G.O.P. UNITY, AND IT

IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT

REPUBLICANS COME TOGETHER.

DO YOU THINK IT IS

OVERBLOWN?

I DON'T THINK IT IS

OVERBLOWN.

I WOULD LIKE THE G.O.P. TO

UNITE.

BECAUSE THAT MEANS THEY

UNDERSTAND THAT THE

GREATEST GOOD IN THIS

INSTANT IS THE DEFEAT OF

THE DEMOCRATS AND THE

LEFT.

TO SAY THAT ONE IS NOT

HAPPY WITH DONALD TRUMP

FOR ANY NUMBER OF

REASONS -- I SUBSCRIBE TO

ALL OF THOSE REASONS.

BUT IN LIFE, YOU DON'T

ALWAYS GET A CHOICE

BETWEEN WONDERFUL AND

AWFUL.

YOU GET BETWEEN AWFUL AND

MORE AWFUL.

AND I'LL ALWAYS TAKE THE

AWFUL OVER THE MORE AWFUL.

WE SUPPORTED THE GREAT

GENOCIDAL DICTATOR,

STALIN, TO DEFEAT HITLER.

DOES THAT MEAN WE LOVE

WHAT STALIN DID?

NO.

IT MEANT IN THE CONTEXT OF

THAT DAY, THE GREATER GOOD

WAS THE SUPPORT OF THE

BUTCHER STALIN OVER THE

BUTCHER HITLER.

WE DROPPED TWO ATOM BOMBS

OVER JAPAN.

WHY?

BECAUSE THE CONTEXT,

MORALLY DEMANDED IT.

THE MORAL DEMAND IN OUR

TIME IN AMERICA IS THE

DEFEAT OF THE LEFT.

David: THERE ARE A

LOT OF FOLKS, DENNIS, WHO

SEE THE CULTURE AND THEY

DON'T LIKE WHAT IS GOING

ON.

THEY FEEL DOWNTRODDEN.

WHERE IS THE HOPE,

EXACTLY?

I GUESS WHAT I'M ASKING

IS, WHAT DO YOU TELL

PEOPLE IN THAT SITUATION?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I

TELL THEM.

I AM NOT OPTMISTIC.

THAT IS CORRECT.

BECAUSE GREATNESS,

GOODNESS IS FRAGILE.

EVERY GENERATION HAS TO

RENEW WHAT IS GOOD.

AND WE HAVEN'T RENEWED IT.

STARTING ABOUT 58, EVEN 75

YEARS AGO, WE STOPPED

TEACHING THE NEXT

GENERATION WHAT AMERICA

STANDS FOR.

WHAT I CALL THE AMERICAN

TRINITY: IN GOD WE TRUST,

EPLURIBUS UNIM, AND

LIBERTY.

IT JUST STOPPED BEING

TAUGHT.

THEREFORE WE ARE LOSING

THE AMERICAN IDEA.

AMERICA IS NOT A

GEOGRAPHICAL IDENTITY.

IT IS AN IDEA.

IF WE LOSE THE IDEA, THEN

WE JUST BECOME A

GEOGRAPHICAL ENTITY.

THERE IS CANADA, THE

UNITED STATES, AND MEXICO,

THE THREE NORTH AMERICAN

COUNTRIES, AND THAT IS IT.

WE'RE A PLACE BETWEEN

CANADA AND MEXICO.

WE'RE LOSING THE IDEA.

HOWEVER -- HOWEVER -- AND

YOU ASKED THIS, WHAT DO WE

DO ABOUT IT?

THE FACT THAT I'M NOT

OPTMISTIC DOESN'T MEAN I

DON'T FIGHT.

AND I WILL TELL YOU HOW I

LEARNED THIS.

WHEN I VISITED NORMANDY

BEACH AND SAW ALL OF THE

GRAVES.

THOSE GUYS GOING OUT TO

NORMANDY BEACH, ESPECIALLY

THE FIRST LANDING -- WHY

WERE THEY URINATING IN

THEIR PANTS?

BECAUSE THEY WERE

OPTMISTIC?

NO.

OPTIMISTS DON'T PEE IN

THEIR PANTS.

BUT THEY WENT.

YOU DON'T FIGHT BECAUSE

YOU THINK YOU'LL WIN OR

YOU'RE SURE YOU'LL WIN.

YOU FIGHT BECAUSE THAT'S

THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

I'M FIGHTING FOR THIS

COUNTRY BECAUSE THOSE GUYS

DIED FOR ME.

BECAUSE GEORGE WASHINGTON

MADE SOMETHING

SPECTACULAR.

I DON'T KNOW IF I'LL WIN.

BUT THE IDEA -- IMAGINE A

TEAM, THEY'RE LOSING.

IT IS THE THIRD PERIOD --

I'M A HOCKEY FAN.

THIRD PERIOD, THEY'RE DOWN

BY TWO GOALS.

WHAT TEAM SAYS,

STATISTICALLY, IT DOES

LOOK BAD, SO, THEREFORE,

WHY SHOULD WE GIVE IT OUR

ALL?

THAT'S NONSENSE.

David: WHEN WE COME

BACK, PASTOR MARK HARRIS,

FIRST A PASTOR --

ACTUALLY, STILL A PASTOR,

AND NOW DABBLING INTO

POLITICS.

HIS STORY FROM NORTH

CAROLINA WHEN WE COME

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

TIME TO FOCUS IN ON PASTOR

MARK HARRIS.

HE IS SENIOR BAPTIST,

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH IN

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA.

HE HAS BEEN VERY OUTSPOKEN

ON THE GAY MARRIAGE ISSUE.

AND HE IS FIGHTING THE

GOOD FIGHT ON THE

TRANSGENDER BATHROOM WARS.

AND NOW HE IS MOVING FROM

THE PULPIT INTO POLITICS.

YES, HE'S A PASTOR, BUT

HE'S ALSO NOW RUNNING FOR

THE U.S. CONGRESSIONAL

SEAT, NINTH DISTRICT, DOWN

IN NORTH CAROLINA.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO

HIM ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON

IN HIS LIFE.

GOD HAS YOU ON THE FRONT

LINES FOR TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE AND WHAT IS GOING

ON IN THIS COUNTRY.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

IT WAS DURING THAT

EXPERIENCE, I WOULD SAY,

THAT GOD BROUGHT SOMETHING

TO MY HEART, THAT I GUESS

I KNEW IN MY HEAD, BUT IT

HADN'T SETTLED IN MY

HEART.

AND THAT IS, BOY, THERE IS

A VACUUM OF LEADERSHIP IN

THIS COUNTRY.

THERE IS A -- AND THERE

ARE PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA

THAT ARE FEELING THAT THEY

DON'T HAVE ANYBODY

SPEAKING THEIR VOICE.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYBODY

STANDING UP FOR THEM.

IT JUST BEGAN TO WEIGH ON

ME AND WEIGH ON ME.

David: LET ME ASK

YOU THIS, AND THIS MAY BE

VERY VALUABLE FOR PASTORS

THINKING OF GETTING

INVOLVED IN THE POLITICAL

AASPECT -- WHAT IS YOUR

ADVICE?

ONE THING AT THE CENTER

OF THIS HAS TO BE PRAYER.

AND NOT JUST YOUR PRAYER,

BUT YOUR SPOUSE'S PRAYER,

ALSO.

YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE HAVE

TO BE TOGETHER ON THIS.

I HAVE NEVER MADE A

DECISION LIKE THIS WITHOUT

FIRST BATHING IT IN PRAYER

WITH MY WIFE, BETH.

I THINK YOU'VE GOT TO PRAY

AND GET THAT CALL OF GOOD

IN YOUR LIFE AND THAT

AFFIRMED WITH YOUR SPOUSE,

THAT THIS IS WHAT WE'RE

SUPPOSED TO DO.

SECONDLY, AND IN MY CASE,

I FELT LIKE I WANTED TO

BRING MY CHURCH ALONG WITH

THIS.

I KNOW DIFFERENT PASTORS

FACE DIFFERENT SITUATIONS

WITH THEIR CONGREGATIONS.

SOME CONGREGATIONS WILL

SAY, YOU HAVE TO DECIDE IF

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

POLITICIAN OR PREACHER.

IF AR YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUR

POLITICIAN, GREAT.

RESIGN AND GO ON.

I WAS VERY BLESSED THAT

OUR CHURCH UNDERSTOOD.

IT UNDERSTOOD THE

SITUATION.

IT UNDERSTOOD THE

CIRCUMSTANCES.

David: TELL ME A

LITTLE BIT ABOUT THIS

BOLDNESS, HOW PASTORS NEED

TO BE BOLDER, ESPECIALLY

TODAY.

THE BOLDNESS IS

DEFINITELY NEEDED.

I SHARED AT THIS EVENT

LAST NIGHT, THAT THE

PASTORS -- IF WE GO BACK

AND LOOK AT OUR NATION'S

HISTORY, ALL THE WAY TO

ITS FOUNDING, WE HAVE TO

CLARIFY TO OUR PEOPLE THE

REALITY OF WHAT PROVERBS

SAYS.

I TALKED ABOUT PROVERBS

28: 4 LAST NIGHT.

AND I TALKED ABOUT THE

FACT THAT WE HAVE GOT TO

RECOGNIZE THAT THERE WILL

BE THOSE WHO WILL PRAISE

WHAT GOD CALLS SIN.

AND WE'VE GOT TO RECOGNIZE

THAT.

AND WE'VE GOT TO CLARIFY

FOR OUR PEOPLE THAT THERE

ARE TWO DIFFERENT WORLD

VIEWS AT WORK IN OUR WORLD

TODAY -- A MINIMUM OF TWO.

AND PASTORS HAVE GOT TO BE

BOLD ENOUGH TO REALLY

TEACH OUR PEOPLE THE

ISSUES.

THESE ARE BIBLICAL ISSUES

THAT ARE STARING US IN THE

FACE.

AND IT IS A RESPONSIBILITY

TO DELIVER THE WHOLE

COUNSEL OF GOD.

David: PASTOR MARK

HARRIS HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WHEN WE COME BACK, AMBER

C. STRONG JOINS THE SHOW.

WE LOVE WHEN SHE IS ON,

AND SHE GETS PAID EXTRA --

NO, SHE DOESN'T.

FOOD WASTE, SHE IS ON TOP

OF THE CASE.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

I DON'T KNOW, I'M JUST

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

TIME NOW FOR A STORY ABOUT

WASTE.

NOT NECESSARILY ABOUT "THE

BRODY FILE" SHOW, EVEN

THOUGH IT CAN BE

CONSIDERED A WASTE OF TIME

FOR A LOT OF FOLKS -- NOT

US.

WE LOVE THE SHOW.

THIS IS ABOUT FOOD WASTE,

AND BY THE WAY, "THE BRODY

FILE" NEVER WANTS TO PUT

FOOD TO WASTE.

BUT THERE ARE SOME

CELEBRITY CHEFS OUT THERE

WHO SAY, WAIT A MINUTE, A

LOT OF FOOD IS BEING

WASTED.

AND WE'VE GOT TO COME UP

WITH SOME CREATIVE NEW

ALTERNATIVES.

AMBER C. STRONG ON THE

CASE WITH THE STORY ABOUT

THE WASTE -- HEY, IT

RHYMES.

Reporter: GOURMET

FOOD FIT FOR A KING,

THAT'S WHAT A GROUP OF

CHEFS SERVE TO D.C.

RESIDENTS FOR FREE AS PART

OF AN EVENT ENTITLED

"FEEDING THE 5,000" BUT

THE STORY ISN'T THE WORLD

RENOWNED CHEFS SERVING UP

THE FOOD, BUT IT IS THE

SOURCE OF THE FOOD.

THE INGREDIENTS FOR THE

MEALS CAME FROM WASTED

FOOD.

THE CHEFS AND EVENT

ORGANIZERS HOPE TO SHOW

THE BEAUTIFUL MEALS THAT

CAN BE MADE FROM FOOD

OTHERWISE BEING USELESS.

AMERICANS TOSS OUT MORE

THAN A BILLION DOLLARS

WORTH OF FOOD A YEAR.

WHEN MOST PEOPLE THINK OF

WASTED FOOD, THEY THINK OF

STEAMY PILES OF GARBAGE OR

A MEAL LEFT ON THE PLATE

AFTER A 2-YEAR-OLD TAKES A

BITE AND PROUDLY DECLARES,

ALL DONE.

SOME OF THE FOOD WASTED

COMES FROM GROCERY STORES

AND FARMERS HELD BY

BUREAUCRATIC RED TAPE AND

INDUSTRY STANDARDS.

A FARMER MAY BE FORCED TO

TOSS A PART OF A CROP IF

IT DOESN'T MEET INDUSTRY

STANDARDS.

SO INSTEAD OF FINDING A

USE FOR THAT MISSHAPE PEN

CARROT, IT IS TOSSED IN

THE TRASH.

SOMETIMES GOVERNMENT RED

TAPE CAN KEEP A GROCERY

STORE OR RESTAURANT FROM

GIVING AWAY UNATTRACTIVE

FOOD.

CONSUMERS GET EASILY

CONFUSED BETWEEN THE

DIFFERENCE OF THE

GUIDELINES THAT SAY "BEST

BY" OR "USE BY."

THE FOOD WASTED IN THE

U.S. AND EUROPE WOULD FEED

A BILLION MALNOURISHED

PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.

A GROUP OF TOP CELEBRITY

CHEFS BROUGHT THEIR

CULINARY SKILLS HERE TO

CAPITOL HILL.

THEY'RE TESTIFYING BEFORE

A HOUSE COMMITTEE HOPING

THAT KEY LEGISLATURE

CHANGES CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE WHEN IT COMES

TO AMERICAN FOOD WASTE.

FOR EXAMPLE, CLARIFYING

THOSE LABELS THAT SAY

"BEST BEFORE" COULD SAVE

AMERICANS SPOONFULS OF

MONEY.

AND MAKING IT EASIER

FOR FARMERS TO GIVE AWAY

FOODS THAT OTHERWISE WOULD

GO TO WASTE.

THE SAME WITH RETAIL

STORES.

ONE PIECE WITH PICKED UP

WHICH IS THE MOST PUZZLING

PART FOR MOST PEOPLE IS

THIS IDEA OF A LABEL THAT

IS ON THE BACK OF A CAN OR

A BAG.

MOST OF THOSE LABELS ARE

SOMEWHAT ASH STARR. ARBITRARY.

SOME PLACES AREN'T WAITING

ON CONGRESSIONAL CHANGE.

D.C. CENTRAL KITCHEN, A

NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. PRIDES

ITSELF ON FEEDING THE

CITY'S HUNGRY USING

DONATED AND RECYCLED FOOD.

David: AMBER C.

STRONG HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, WHAT'S THE HAPS.

I JUST LIKE SAYING THAT.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON TALKING

ABOUT MILLENNIALS AND JOB

PROSPECTS, AND ARE THEY

JUST SITTING AROUND EATING

CHEETOS IN THEIR PARENTS'

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

TIME FOR A NEW SEGMENT,

AND WE CALL IT, WHAT'S THE "WHAT'S

THE HAPS?"

AND ABIGAIL ROBERTSON IS

HERE TO TALK ABOUT MILL

NEALS AND HOMILLENNIALS AND HOW TO GET

THAT JOB.

JUST GET OUT, GET OUT, GET

OUT.

"WHAT'S THE HAPS?"

Reporter: THIS WEEK,

IT IS THAT TIME OF THE

YEAR WHEN YOUNG ADULTS

GRADUATE AND SUDDENLY FIND

THEMSELVES IN THE BIG,

BAD, REAL WORLD.

I KNOW FROM FAIRLY RECENT

EXPERIENCE IT CAN BE A

DAUNTING AND HUMBLING TIME

IN LIFE.

TO HELP LAUNCH GRADS INTO

THIS NEW SEASON, I HIT THE

CBN NEWSROOM TO TALK TO

SOME HIRING PROS ABOUT THE

GOD AND THE BAGOOD ABOUT THE

INTERVIEWING PROCESS.

I'VE HAD SOME GOOD

INTERVIEWS FROM SMART

INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE

TALENTED AND READY TO TAKE

ON THE WORLD.

AND THEN I'VE HAD SOME

REAL DUDS.

DO YOU HAVE ANY

EXPERIENCE?

NO, SIR, I DON'T HAVE

ANY EXPERIENCE, BUT I AM A

BIG FAN OF MONEY.

I LIKE IT.

SOMEONE CAME IN FOU FOR AN

INTERVIEW RIGHT AFTER

SCHOOL, DRESSED DOWN,

INCLUDING A T-SHIRT AND

FLIP-FLOPS.

I TOLD SOMEONE THE OTHER

DAY, NOT ONLY WERE THEY

FLIP-FLOPS, BUT SHE DIDN'T

EVEN HAVE HER TOENAILS

PAINTED.

YOU'RE WEARING A TUXEDO

FOR A JOB THAT REQUIRES

CLEANING A BATHROOM.

PLEASE LEAVE THIS

INTERVIEW.

A YOUNG WOMAN WHO CAME

HERE TO INTERVIEW FOR A

PRODUCER POSITION FOR A

VERY POPULAR SHOW HERE AT

CBN NEWS, WHEN I ASKED

THIS WOMAN WHY SHE WANTED

TO BE A PRODUCER AND WHAT

HER GOALS WERE FOR THE

JOB, SHE TOLD ME -- AND I

FEEL COMFORTABLE QUOTING

HER -- SHE TOLD ME,

QUOTE,"ALL I WANT TO DO IS

GET MARRIED AND HAVE

BABIES."

WE HAD THIS APPLICANT

WHO LOOKED REALLY GREAT ON

PAPER.

WE DECIDED TO CALL HER UP

AND HAVE HER COME IN FOR

AN INTERVIEW.

WE MADE THE CALL, AND NO

ANSWER.

SO WE LEFT A VOICEMAIL.

A FEW DAYS WENT BY, AND

SHE STILL HADN'T CALLED

BACK.

[PHONE RINGING]

SO ABOUT A WEEK AND A

HALF AFTER THE INITIAL

CALL, WE FINALLY GET A

CALL BACK FROM THIS

APPLICANT.

AND SHE SAYS THAT THE

REASON SHE DIDN'T CALL

BACK SOONER -- AND THIS IS

A, QUOTE,"BECAUSE LAST

WEEK WAS MY BIRTHDAY

WEEK."

David: I'M JUST

LAUGHING.

IT'S OVER.

THE RESUME AND COVER

LETTERS ARE VERY

IMPORTANT.

WHEN YOU WRITE THAT

LETTER, MAKE SURE YOU

PERSONAL LIES IT.

PERSONALIZE IT.

I RECEIVED A RE RESUME AT

ANOTHER PLACE WHERE I WAS

THE HIRING MANAGER, THAT

PERSON SENT ME A LETTER

WITHOUT ANY SALUTATION ON

IT.

I THREW THAT IN THE TRASH

CAN.

WELL, PAN --

NO, MY NAME IS PAM.

ARE YOU SAYING "PAM" OR

"PAN?"

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE

ASKING WHO AM I GOING TO

BE TALKING TO.

AND THEN THEY ADDRESS THE

LETTER TO THAT PERSON.

THAT'S GOING THE EXTRA

MILE.

ANYONE CAN CALL AND SAY,

WHO IS THE MANAGER IN THAT

DEPARTMENT.

I WANT TO PERSONALIZE A

LETTER.

Reporter: LET'S GO

BACK TO THAT FIRST

IMPRESSION.

WORK ON A CONFIDENT

HANDSHAKE.

MAKE SURE IT IS STRONG,

BUT DON'T CUT OFF THEIR

CIRCULATION.

LOOK THE PERSON IN THE

EYE, AND SAY NICE TO MEET

YOU, AND REPEAT THEIR

NAME.

FOR BOTH THE GUYS AND THE

GALS, I RECOMMEND

INVESTING IN TWO ALL-STAR

INTERVIEW OUTFITS THAT YOU

FEEL YOU'RE READY TO TAKE

ON THE WORLD IN.

LADIES, HAVE A DRESSY

BLAZER LIKE THIS ONE THAT

YOU CAN THROW ON TOP OF A

DRESS, OR PAIR WITH DARK

PANTS, PUMPS, AND A NICE

BLOUSE IF THE OFFICE IS

MORE CASUAL.

PRACTICE SOME STANDARD

INTERVIEWS AND TALKING

POINTS, SO YOU NEVER GET

CAUGHT LOOKING LIKE A DEER

IN HEADLIGHTS.

AND BE HONEST.

IF YOU'RE INTERVIEWING AT

OTHER PLACES, BE HONEST

AND TELL THEM.

YOU MIGHT JUST END UP WITH

A BETTER OFFER IF THEY

KNOW THEY HAVE A LITTLE

COMPETITION.

MOST IMPORTANT, PRAY.

MY GO TO INTERVIEW PRAYER

IS THAT GOD OPENS THE

DOORS TO THE RIGHT

OPPORTUNITIES I SHOULD

TAKE, AND SLAMS THE DOORS

SHUT TO THE PLACES I DON'T

BELONG.

WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD,

RECENT GRADUATES.

STAY CLOSE TO GOD AND IT

WON'T BE NEAR AS DAUNTING

AS YOU THINK.

David: ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON WITH "WHAT'S THE

David: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE ADMIT, WE'RE

NARCISSISTS -- IT IS "THE

BRODY FILE," AFTER ALL.

AND THE SHOW GETS TO OUR

HEAD.

SPEAKING ABOUT GETTING TO

OUR HEAD, TIME FOR THE

OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

[HAVA NAGILA MUSIC]

David: WELL, HERE WE

GO.

IT IS NOT A PRETTY

PICTURE.

A CHINESE MAN WITH HIS

HEAD INSIDE A WASHING

MACHINE.

THAT'S OY-GEVALT RIGHT

THERE.

HE WANTED TO USE THE

WASHING MACHINE.

HE FOUND OUT THAT THE

MACHINE WASN'T WORKING, SO

HE THOUGHT THE DRUM INSIDE

MIGHT HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM,

SO HE WENT AHEAD AND

CHECKED IT OUT.

AND, OF COURSE, HE WENT

HEAD-FIRST, AND THERE IS

THE RESULT.

HE IS FINE.

DON'T WORRY.

I MEAN, LOOK, WE'RE A

UNIQUE SHOW.

WHERE ARE YOU EVER GOING

TO FIND A STORY ABOUT A

CHINESE MAN WITH HIS HEAD

STUCK IN A WASHER OR A

DRYER.

YOU'RE NOT FINDING THAT ON

JAKE TABER'S SHOW.

YOU'LL FIND IT HERE.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS WEEK.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, GOD

BLESS.

HAVE A GREAT WEEK.

OY-GEVALT.
