omicron has reproductive number in sort of, which suggests that one person can infect up to seven people who have not been vaccinated or previously infected. the monkey pox vaccine, that number is less than one. so it's much less contagious. it requires either infection by droplets or direct contact. a lower -- >> dr. rhiner, we got to wrap it up unfortunately, dr. rhiner, we'll have you back. thank you so, so much, i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room," erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, pentagon confirms plans are underway for troops to guard the embassy in kyiv, significant show of force from the u.s., as new cracks are appearing tonight in the russian peoples' support for putin's
war, plus trump versus pence, candidates in duelling rallies just hours before the polls open, is trump about to face his biggest primary defeat yet and was it a love triangle turned deadly? texas marshalls looking for a woman who allegedly killed a cyclist dating her boyfriend. let's go "outfront." i'm erin burnett, pentagon confirming plans under way to send u.s. forces to protect the embassy in ukraine's capitol, planning includes potentially sending special operations forces there and that would mark the first u.s. troops into ukraine since the war began. even as president biden promised there would be none. just a short distance from the u.s. embassy, mean time, towns are still under attack like desna where according to ukrainian president volodomyr zelenskyy, 87 people were killed after four rockets hit the town. this this comes as putin faces growing opposition to his operation in ukraine inside russia, today long-time russian diplomat quit in a damning letter saying he's never been so
ashamed of his country writing the aggressive war unleashed by putin on ukraine and in fact against the entire western world is not only a crime against the ukrainian people but also perhaps the most serious crime against the people of russia. it's a stunning rebuke. he's a 20 year veteran of russia's foreign ministry and today the state department responding to the sudden resignation in a statement writing, it takes immense bravery to stand up to an oppressor and requires courage to speak truth to power and we saw that bravery again this weekend. just watch as thousands chanted at the war, at concert in st. p petersburg. thought there would be safety in numbers there but the chance, nonetheless, incredible to hear. cnn spoke to one russian officer who simply had enough and resigned his post. had been part of the massive build-up of russian forces in
february, taken to crimea and then shortly after february 24th, his battalion entered ukraine, told cnn he was embarrassed and confused why he was even there. said, quote, we were dirty and tired, people around us were die, i didn't want too feel a part of it but was a part of it, said he went to his skmander, stood his ground and resigned. we heard similar stories from villagers on the ground there, how embarrassed troops were when they heard ukrainians didn't want them there. we know russian troops have been struggling with low morale in many cases, in part because they didn't understand the mission and were confused but still no sign putin is going to end the fight despite all of this and the economic toll it has had on russia. it is important, though, to note, that toll is not as black and white as it seems, for example the ruble surged to strongest level in four years against the u.s. dollar today, needless to say, that's well before the war. melissa bell "outfront" live in
kyiv, what is the latest on the ground there tonight? >> reporter: well you mentioned, erin, tonight, the strikes to the west of ukraine targeting military infrastructure, that's something we've seen again today in eastern ukraine, around the town of dnipro, you can see there on a map, that is again targeting military infrastructure, trying to prevent and stop and get in the way of these ukrainian supply line and see specifically, what we saw in the west, trying to target those military supplies, coming in from nato allies which speaks to just how difficult this offensive going on in the east of the country is for russian forces. still, they're trying to press ahead ever more forcefully with more fighting, more shelling around towns, all along that frontline where they're trying to push northwards from donetsk. now this comes as even one russian soldier was, in today in kyiv, sentenced to life in jail, speaking to those hapless foot
soldiers whose fate is becoming more and more clear exactly how difficult those first few days of the war were. a blow for the first russian soldier to stand trial in a ukrainian court since the start of the invasion. >> the court found shishimarin guilty. >> reporter: sentenced to life in jail for killing an unarmed civilian in a village in northeastern ukraine, four days after russia invaded the country. >> war crimes, we now have a sentence, well it's not enough. it's only beginning. it's these three months. our investigators and prosecutors properly have done their job. >> reporter: shishimarin confessed to killing the man last week but said he was under
intense pressure and had no choice but to file the fatal shot. his lawyer says he will file an appeal. >> translator: i believe and continue to believe a person carried out an order cannot be convicted under this article. >> reporter: the judge said because the crime broke international law, was, quote, against peace, security and humanity, the court couldn't impose a shorter sentence. >> this will be a good example for other occupiers who may not yet be on our territory but are planning to come. all those here now and planning to stay and fight. >> reporter: on friday, shishimarin made a final plea for clemency. >> i'm sorry, i severely repent. i was nervous the moment it happened. i didn't want to kill, but it happened and i do not deny it. >> reporter: the kremlin said it's concerned about shishimarin and will seek ways to assist him. i mentioned a moment dago, erin
that fighting in the east and difficulties the russians are having but what this trial provided was a window to the first few days from russian point of view, just how badly organized this offensive was to begin with, how the invasion was not understood by those fighting for it, as you mention hearing from that soldier who spoke to cnn off the record, happily at home unlike shishimarin spending the rest of his life in ukrainian jail, we've heard russian officers being sacked from beyond the russian military as well. >> melissa, thank you very much from kyiv tonight, pretty stunning could resign as that soldier did and then go home, perhaps more to that story. "outfront" now, retired general mark hertling former commander of europe in the seventh army and i mentioned a 20 year russian diplomat quitening that scathing letter condemning the invasion and criticizing the russian foreign minister by the
way, sergei lavrov and said the russian foreign affair as not about diplomacy, it is about war mongering, lies and hatred. what do you make of that? >> it was stunning. erin, to use your words, it was the first thing i read this morning and holy smokes that is a real crack in the russian federation. this guy is not an underling, he's a well known diplomat, dealt with our diplomats on several occasions out of geneva so this shows a crack in the system but compounded by all the other things happening. we enter tomorrow as the 90th day of this conflict. russian forces have had low morale from the beginning and only by all intelligence sources getting worse. so you're seeing these things compounding. what is occurring on the front line, and that putin is paying no attention to. ambassador's letter addresses specifically those things, you know, the letter you showed
earlier on the screen, it just gets to the key points of how krookd and criminal the authoritarian regime of putin it but also goes after lavrov, 20 year veteran in the foreign ministry and decimates him in this letter as well so pretty significant. >> also significant that you point out it's 90 days in and have people now standing up and obviously, when you do that, the risk you take of something happening to you, a sudden death, is not small. obviously did nthat from geneva so lloyd australiaein said puti general strategy is unknown, here's how he put it. >> at the outset, envisioned using overwhelming force and speed and power to rapidly take down the capitol city and he are place the government. they failed in that.
so we've seen them really proceed at a very slow and unsuccessful place, pace on the battlefield, and you would expect that he would seek to use other levers of power. >> so what can you determine, general, about putin's strategy now. what is he trying to do? he does, of course, now control essentially mariupol, right, i mean there have been significant changes in the map since february here. >> not much, erin, i'll push back a little bit on that. you know, what secretary austin just talked about, the strategies of the russian force at the beginning, by my count, there were five of them. take over the ukrainian regime, replace their power. further divide the west, get access to the black and asov sea, and he built those things into an operational campaign plan with tactics, battle field tactics associated to them. all of those strategic goals,
he's failed at. he hasn't achieved a single one of them and in fact, there's negative connotations to each one of them now. he's built nato, not divided it. the ukraine regime is the strongest it's ever been. there's support for it through the west, the ukrainian army is performing magnificently, there have been truly no battlefield victories, you mention mariupol but that is a battlefield destruction, not a victory. so we've yet to see the kind of things russia is trying to do in this campaign. i don't know what his strategy is right now. he's just looking to take off a bite of the east and perhaps the south, but it's certainly not part of the original strategic goals of mr. putin. >> general hertling, thank you so much, always appreciate your perspective. thank you. >> thank you, erin. next, trump versus pence, both headlining rallies at this hour before crucial primary that could have trump facing his
biggest defeat of the year so far, plus china warning the u.s. is playing with fire after this remark from president biden. >> are you willing to get involved military to defend taiwan if it comes to that? >> yes. that's a commitment we made. >> and the number of potential monkey pox cases in the u.s. growing, now suspected cases in two more u.s. states, bwhat the biden administration is warning tonight.

moments ago, former vice-president mike pence, headlining a rally for kemp on the eve of a primary pitting pence squarely against donald trump who is backing election denier david purdue, if purdue loses, would be the highest profile defeat for a trump-backed candidate so far. let's go "outfront" to that rally tonight. >> reporter: tonight, mike pence on the campaign trail, taking sides on the eve of the georgia primary, in a rare public stand against donald trump. >> i'm a christian, conservative and republican in that order and here to support brian kemp. frankly, kemp is one of the most successful republican governors in the america. >> reporter: the former vice-president resounding support for brian kemp who is
trying to move beyond relentless crit criticism from trump, for refusing to overturn the last election. >> i can say i was for brian kemp before it was cool. >> reporter: putting a fresh spotlight on the long-simmering conflict between the former president and his once loyal partner. >> president trump was wrong, i had no right to overturn the election. >> the governor hoping for a big win over chief rival senator david purdue, in one of his riskiest gambits of the campaign season. >> reporter: brian kemp is a turncoat, a coward and complete and total disaster. >> kemp refused to engage as he did today on a call to reporters. >> i never said anything bad about it him, i don't plan on doing that, i'm not mad at him, i think he's just mad at me and that is not something i can
control. >> campaign not focused on trump but on stacy abe rms in the primary. heading in on election day, 85,000 people already cast their ballots, a record early vote for an off-year race in a battle ground where voting rights is at the center of the debate, where many republicans made clear they're eager to look forward, trump's obsession with nearly losing georgia loomed large up and down the primary ballot, endorsed congressman jody heist for the top election official, secretary of state jeff raffensperger. >> trying to turn the table on me because i'm fighting for election integrity. >> reporter: raffensperger famously refused to help trump overturn the election. g.o.p. voters will determine his fate tuesday. >> as long as i am secretary of state, georgia will lead the nation in election security and election integrity.
and accessibility. >> reporter: now the former vice-president has just left the hanger here, erin, and after shaking hands and posing for photographs with georgia republicans and he followed the playbook that brian kemp has been doing all along, he did not engage with the former president, but he said the election here tomorrow would be a sign of the future of the republican party. so clearly, unmistakable message there about what is next for the g.o.p. but the former vice-president's appearance here in georgia, tonight, erin, spoke volumes. >> jeff, thank you very much, and in the final hours of this race, the two republican candidates making their closing arguments and as you can imagine, right, they can't be more different here even in these final moments. the front runner, incumbent brian kemp focused on the general election. >> we will all unite on a mi
mission to make sure stacy abe r abrams is not going to be our governor or next president. >> while david purdue focuses on kemp and the last election. >> allowed fraud to happen in our election, denied it happen and coming up here ever since, and i want to fix this election fraud situation in georgia. >> "outfront" now, mark short, senior adviser to the kemp campaign, and james carville, lead strategist on bill clinton's 1992 presidential campaign. so mark, when you're looking at this race, there is a real concern that trump's attacks on kemp are going to cause some trump loyalists to sit out the general election all together and that general election likely to fit kemp against abrams so if sitting out, georgia gop activist told the institution, and i quote, they think both stacy and brian are evil and there is no lesser of two evils, you're awarding betrayal.
how concerned are you by that sentiment? >> well erin, thanks for having me on tonight. i think, i certainly hope there are peoples, at home, i think the stakes are too high not just for georgia but our country and i think you're going to see a massive turn-out in the midterms because i think people are frustrated with enormously high inflation, highest in 40 years, frustrated with the gas prices highest they've ever been in american history, frustrated with the direction of the country and that will benefit republicans and the reality is if brian kemp defeated stacy abrams in a much more difficult environment in 2018 for republicans then it will be in 2022. first thing first, he needs to of a good day tomorrow, win the primary with more than 50% to make sure there's not a run-off, focus full attention on stacy abrams but i think the campaign is very confident that will happen and he'll be able to take on stacy abrams a second time and defeat her again. >> james, when you hear the
quote, they think stacy and brian are both evil and there is no lesser of two evils, i imagine that's music to your ears. >> have to catch a few breaks, i think we can get them up to in georgia just from what was said about how too feel about kemp and stacy abrams, let's not forget walker front and center, there's a guy who played football too long with an ill-fitting helmet and he's right there on that ticket and all of his problems are going to come into question and i think governor abrams is a very tough and skilled person and will acquit herself, i think she has more experience than in 2018 so it's going to be a burner like with biden, i think georgia's my
birth state, place of my birth. let's go. >> mark, i want to ask you about, you know, you're sitting there, obviously, as, you know, adviser kemp but you also know mike pence incredibly well and his endorsement of kemp was a bold break from trump, right? trump hates the guy with the heat of a thousand suns it appears and pence came out and defended and very clearly endorsed kemp and trump spokesman telling cnn, quote, mike ens was set to lose a governor's race in 2019 now desperate to chase his loss relevance, going into races hoping someone is paying attention. okay. so it's really turned dark, pretty dark, that everybody could have seen where this is going except maybe mike pence a couple years ago. how bad is it, mark? >> look, erin, i think mike pence is here not for any sort of broader message. he's here because he supports
brian kemp and kemp is one of the most conservative governors of in america, providing billions in tax relief, provides hundreds of millions in additional surpluses back to tax payers, provided parents opportunity to know what is going on in their classrooms, one of the first governors to open up with covid, remarkable record of accomplishments for the state of georgia, that's why mike pence is here in the state, supporting somebody with a great record and going to win again. you know, you can read the various quotes whether it's a disgruntaled republican or from taylor, but i think the most important quote that's out there is just stacy abrams two days ago saying georgia is the worst state in the country to live in and she's running for our governor. so that's actually from the candidate herself denouncing and d dennegrading the people of this great state of georgia. i think pence is here because kemp has been a friend, had a great record, and i think he's going to win it decisively on the way to win it again four
more years. >> so stacy abrams did say georgia was the worst state in the country to live in, she did, so let me play exactly what she said over the weekend. here she is. >> i am tired of hearing about being the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live. when you're number 48 for mental health, when you're number one for maternal mortality, when you have an incarceration rate that's on the rise and wages that are on the decline then you're not the number one place to live in the united states, but we can get there. >> obviously, do you think it was a mistake for her to say that? >> i think she's challenging the status quo. and, you know, you can check her figures. expand healthcare more, wages are not what they need to be and i think shes was saying i'm not satisfied what georgia is, i want a georgia that can be and i
think that's what she'll run on and i think she'll do quite well. kemp is obviously going to defend the status quo, and obviously going to challenge on that point. that happens in most times where you have incumbent facing the challenger so and i think she's got some energized people behind her, very skilled campaigner but we ought to make one prediction that purdue gets 33% because that's about what dr. oz and jd vance got and seems to be a consensus number. >> make a prediction, we'll be sitting here tomorrow night see if that pans out but as you point out that has been the number for the trump based candidate in the other states. thank you both very much, i appreciate it, both of course going to be a crucial part of tomorrow night and you don't want to miss live coverage of all the results as they come in. it starts right here at 7:00 tomorrow evening. "outfront" next, china warning biden not to, quote, play with fire when it talks of militarily
defending taiwan as the pentagon and white house are once again downplaying biden's comment on this explosive issue. plus, 10s of thousands of migrants waiting to enter the u.s. despite a judge's ruling that stopped the surge for now. we're "outfront" on the side of the mexican/u.s. border. hybrid work is here. it's there. it's everywhere. but for someone to be able to work from here, there hato be someone here making sure everything is safe. secure. consistent. so log in from here. or here. assured that someone is here ready to fix anything. anytime. anywhere. even here. that's because nobody... and i mean nobody... makes hybrid work, work better. people with plaque psoriasis, or psoriatic arthritis,

the u.s. is, quote, playing with fire. that is the warning from china after president biden said today the u.s. would use force if china invaded taiwan. >> you didn't want to get involved in the ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that? >> yes. >> you are? >> it's a commitment we made. >> he was very clear. no equivocation, the second time bi the united states has said they would defend taiwan and the second time the white house has been forced to walk the words back and say no, no, the president of the united states doesn't speak for u.s. policy, no policy change.
author now of the brand new book, "a sacred oath" memoirs of a secretary of defense during extraordinary times. secretary, i really appreciate your time. so this is the second time here president biden has been, you know, unequivocal, completely clear the u.s. would defend invasion from china in taiwan and second time the white house has said actually, there's been no change in policy so what's going to happen here. is he right that u.s. would go to war with china if it invades taiwan? >> first of all erin, thanks for inviting me on to the show. you know, i finished my book a year ago and have an entire chapter on china and in that chapter i talk about this specific issue i felt the one china policy run its course, that china and taiwan evolved in different ways since diplomatic ways run in the '70s and it was
time to have this broader discussion of our paolicy. i think president biden is being completely honest, his instincts are right and indeed may be the third time he said this and it continues to amazing me the white house staff walks him back on this. >> so you think he's right in terms of how he reads it but the message it sends to china, you feel that is the right way to go? >> yeah, even in the 1979 taiwan relations act there's language that says any move by china in this case to determine the future of taiwan other than peaceful means would be considered a security matter and grave threat to a united states, that's diplomatic language for fighting words, if you will. >> obviously, this is not what we heard from trump. but trump was tough with china on trade. okay. that's just clear, and we should be direct about that, but in other areas, when you talk about trump in your book, you talk about how he initially did not embrace being as tough as you and others in the administration
felt were necessary. you of course, the secretary of defense, and you write here, and i'm quoting your book, in a rare moment, i saw them chastise mike pompeo in remarks made about the prc, peoples republic of china, asking mike to please dial it down as they sat opposite each other, pompeo paused for a moment, acknowledged trump's request and nodded in agreement. so what do you make of trump's handling of china. he did become more critical, of course, as covid spread across the u.s., infamously calling it the china virus, how much was a real turn and how much was political, not wanting to look weaker than joe biden on the issue. >> this is a great topic i write in detail and i try to be fair and accurate in my book and one thing i think the trump administration deserves credit for is forging a consensus
within the united states government that china is a strategic adversary of ours but i also write the president wasn't fully on board with all the parameters of the policy, seemed to really focus on the trade piece of it and really, in many ways, wanted to build this friendship with president xi jinping that in some ways, undermined our efforts. look, the policy with regard to china has to be multidimensional, encompass, economic, trade, political, human rights, freedom, hong kong, you name it and he wasn't there on all the issues which i thought was the soft spot. he did get tough interfinal year i think because china's handling of covid under mined an economy and therefore his electroral chances. >> in the book, something, people should hear your thoughts you thought about many times as resigning as trump's defense secretary and the reasons you did not, that you didn't for what you said the sake of the country and fear he would
replace you with a person who would just say yes and then you sum up the final months of his presidency, write, the president seemed to surround himself with more and more who would blindly do his bidding and implement plans regardless of consequences. country became like a run away car barrelling down a hill with trump behind the wheel and loyalists pushing hard on the accelerator. by all accounts, secretary esper, donald trump is the gop front runner for 2024, if he runs, it's his for the taking, that is just what every single republican strategist says. what do you think it would mean if he won, what would it mean for the country? >> well, from, i'm not certain if he tries to run he will be the front runner. i think what's good to see is there are potential 2024 candidates who are starting to step out and show some distance, on your previous segment talked about mike pence in georgia, mike pompeo in pennsylvania opposing the trump endorsed candidate so i'm hoping that's not the case.
i'm hoping president trump doesn't decide to run and further that he doesn't involve himself in the contest. i know that second part is highly unlikely but look, if he does, i've said before that i'm concerned. i think that a future g.o.p. candidate and i consider myself a regular republican, should meet some core criteria, number one, put country above self, number two, have integrity and follow a core set of principle and see number three, be able to reach across the aisle, work with others and unite the american people and president trump just doesn't do that for me. >> secretary esper, thank you very much and like i said, secretary esper's new book out now. thank you, sir. >> thank you, erin. next we take you to the border where desperation is growing, 10s of thousands of migrants literally just waiting to enter the u.s. >> there's no lights in here, but you can see just how completely full this dormitory is. plus, the hunt is on for a woman wanted in the alleged

tonight, desperation at the bordere border where 10s of thousands of migrants are just waiting to enter the united states, because they were thinking they could come in monday but then a judge ruled to keep in place titght 4 which is a covid-related rule allowing border agent to see turn migrants away from u.s. because of the pandemic so they're still there waiting and no one knows what will happen, matt rivers "outfront" from the mexican side of the border, judge's ruling is temporary, we don't know when the outcome will be or when it will be and the administration will have to face, most likely, this major surge and i think that may be an under statement, at some point, in the near future. >> reporter: absolutely, and what we saw during the day today which we spent here just across the border there, behind me from the city of el paso texas is the people here, who have in many cases been waiting a long time to get a chance to apply for asylum in the united states,
they're not planning on leaving. many people we spoke to including venezuelan man here said they're going to continue to wait, maybe try to cross. the venezuelan man said he will make an attempt to cross in the next couple of weeks, here's just a little bit of our conversation. are you nervous the authoritys not going to allow you to enter the country? >> si. >> translator: yes very much so, more, the eternity of not knowing how long we'll have to be here, especially for aiden, only a year and a half old so yes, it's difficult. >> reporter: thank you for your time here. his story, very similar to other stories we've heard in the shelter. it's called the good shepherd shelter and it is completely full at the moment. the majority of migrants here right now are actually haitian but as you heard from our interview there, he is z
venezuelan, we can show you, i want to enter into one of the dormitories here but bear with us, it is a little dark as we transition from sunlight to darkness here. you can see just how completely full this dormitory is. it is just bunk bed next to bunk bed next to bunk bed, there are dozens of people living in this facility, most of whom are spread out through the facility, have asked us to respect peoples' privacy here so that's why you're seeing aempty beds bt people are sharing bunk beds here. now, one of the most dangerous cities in mexico and people in the shelter can't actually leave unless they have a reason to do so. one of the legitimate reasons would have been to apply for asylum at the border and many people were hoping, here, with the expiration of title 42, that they could have gone to the border to do that more easily, of course, that didn't happen with the federal judge in louisiana continuing to allow that policy in place and that's
been very disappointing for people here, many of which, many of whom would have gone to the border to try to apply for asylum and we spoke to the director of this facility earlier today who told us things can't continue like this. he's building another facility across the street that he says can house more than double what he can hold now and when that is finished in two months time, says he already knows there won't be enough people, enough room, rather, to handle all the people that he says are still going to be in this area. and erin, we asked the director whether he thought the title 42 being continued would actually slow the number of migrants here, he said no. he said he absolutely expects the number of migrants arriving here at the border to continue to increase over the weeks and months ahead. >> matt rivers, thank you very much. it's pretty powerful reporting, just i mean, you think about that. look at how they're sleeping, filling up across the street and when it's done, build another, lucky for those who have a place
to sleep. look, harry, this is a big, big issue for democrats. biden administration said they're going to appeal the judge, keeping title 42 in place. they have to decide whether to sort of, the speed with which they will do that. this is a really big thing for democrats right now. >> it is, and basically, what you have is the democratic base on one side of this issue and the american public on the other side of this issue so you ask most americans, do you oppose the ending of title 42? in which you essentially find most americans say yes, they do, but most democrats don't. and this, i think is part of the larger picture of democrats moving to the left on immigration. you know, if you compare how where you are on illegal immigration, where democrats were in 2006 to 2022 and what you essentially see is that not at all number, sky rocketing into the 40s. the great deal number, dropping tremendously, dropping from 42% to 18%, so this is part of the
thing where the democratic base has moved on this issue while the american public stayed pretty steady overall. >> and this is one of the times i feel it's worthy to remind people that while more americans self-identify as democrat than republican it's still about 30% identify so then you're talking about the base within that, always make that point that democrats, republicans make too so people understand. so while you have the democratic base moving to the left, american public has not shifted as a whole and on the republican side, you've got a shift the other direction. >> you've got a shift in the other direction. more and more of what we're seeing on the issue of immigration is polarization along that issue, right? go back to 2012 essentially and say how did those voters who voted in 2012, how did they vote in 2020 and what you see, basically illegal immigrants causing crime, is that a big problem? have they caused increase and you see people who switched over to trump who voted obama in 2012, overwhelmingly, 84% of them said that illegal
immigration increases the crime rate versus those who stuck with the democrats, just 26% believe that and so what you're seeing again is this polarization along immigration, one of the number one issues. tell me how you feel about illegal immigration, tell you how you vote in the next election. >> tomorrow night, how crucial it is, run-off tomorrow in the texas democratic side, this schism in the party, criticized in immigration running against lawyer, within the democratic party, a schism. up next, police say apparent love triangle turned deadly. plus, a top white house health official with a warning tonight about the monkey pox in the united states. real good. all of knorr's high quality pasta and rice sides are now made with h no artificil flavors or preservatives. knorr.r. taste for good. ♪ limu emu ♪ and doug.
