Never a dull moment in 2017 America. Today is Day 4 in the Neil Gorsuch SCOTUS confirmation hearings and the House Intelligence Committee investigating Trump campaign-Russia collusion charges seems to be imploding. Today was supposed to be the big vote day for the ACA repeal & replacement bill, but they couldn't come up with enough votes and tabled the bill. Let's hope it's dead and buried. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein joined in, and told us about his long history with his congressman Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee who's been doing a great job in countering Devin [...]
The madness continues. It's Day Three of Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court confirmation hearing. While he was answering questions, the eight current members of the court voted unanimously to overturn his 2008 decision that basically said that school districts have to provide the barest of bare minimums to special ed students.

The media, including the NY Times, is finally done with the euphemisms and is finally calling Trump the liar he is!
On this St. Patrick's Day, Nicole speaks with Dr. Steve Buser, a psychiatrist and editor of A Clear & Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of President Trump
President D'ump today released his budget outline and it confirms everything we thought we knew about him and his agenda. I ran through most of the cuts he fantasizes about regularly on today's show, but if you'd like to see for yourself, read from the NY Times and/or the Washington Post. Of course, he wants to use the "savings" from all of those cuts to fund a $53 billion increase in military spending to compensate for his really tiny dick. It's Thursday, so Howie Klein joined me to talk about all of the above, as well as a slimy child-molesting [...]
