February 17, 2017

Cliff Schecter, reflects on the passing of Bob Michael a moderate Republican leader. Trump’s popularity with Republicans and the insanity of Republican politics. Republican leaders have responsibility for creating Trump. Trump and Planet of the Apes. Trump thinks all black people know each other. Trump freaks out on a Jewish reporter. Trump is wrong about the drug crisis. Trump tries to explain how fake news can lead to real leaks and Trump rambles about Russia and it’s crazy.

Is the Trump Administration going to use the National Guard to round up immigrants. Shep Smith calls out Trump. Sebastian Gorka is a hilarious hack and wants you to know in response to a question about being a Nazi sympathizer with an answer about not being a Communist. Guns, mental illness and terrorist watch lists. Russia and the Trump Administration and your calls and IMs.
