1/29 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Isabel Gillies

January 29, 2016

Cliff Schecter and Sam explains why Trump is right to be angry at Fox. Why Fox is not a media organization and how they played the same game in media that Trump has in politics. Jeb Bush cannot shake Donald Trump and is bizarre again. Jeb Bush is so sad. Ted Cruz has a terrible debate. Marco Rubio says insane things but no one notices because he is so boring. Jeb wants to take down Rubio. Rand Paul has a good night and how cynical Fox’s debating questioning was. The Democrats debate controversy. Why Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a terrible DNC Chair and who what would a Bernie Sanders Donald Trump election look like. (9:00)

Isabel Gillies has new dogs. How do you best train dogs, we find out. Does Isabel still support Trump? Republicans and fear mongering. Did the Republican debate make any difference? Isabel loves Alan Rickman and she tells us to watch Truly Madly Deeply. (58:00)

On The Fun Half: Donald Trump mocks Jeb Bush. The Saudi Prince who knows how to own Trump. The birth of “Islamic Trump”. Bernie and Hillary who is the more practical choice and your calls IMs.
