February 22, 2011 - 7:24 am
This morning, on Talk Radio Networks’ nationally syndicated “America’s Morning News,” Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown offered some heartfelt advice for the accused shoplifter and former child star, Lindsay Lohan.
He told co-hosts John McCaslin and Amy Holmes that he thinks about her “a lot” and wishes he could have “ten minutes with her and just sit her down” and tell her “you can do better and be better.”
The senator, who had his own brushes with the law for shoplifting as a teen, said, “I kinda look at her like almost I would say the same thing to my daughter.”
Somebody get these two together on the phone!
Here is the audio. See transcript below.
Holmes: So I want to ask you — this may seem like a bit of an off the wall question. But in your memoir you talk about how you were a serial shoplifter in your teen years. You might have become a juvenile delinquent if not for a judge who, quote, “verbally kick your butt.” Well, we have a very famous young woman who’s in the headlines, Lindsay Lohan. Do you have any advice for her?
Brown: It’s funny you mention that. I think about her a lot. And I often say: You know what? I wish I could have, like, ten minutes with her and just sit her down and talk to her and say… You know, ‘cuz who doesn’t remember her in “The Parent Trap”? This incredible movie, this bright young actress with this bright young life? And now all of things you read about her, you feel badly. You just want to kinda go out and just talk to her and say, you know, you can do better and be better.
“So, I would hope that she would start to get some real guidance from some people that care about her and not looking for headlines or purse strings attached it.”
“I kinda look at her like almost I would say the same thing to my daughter. So, I guess it reflects my age.”
