We begin the show, as usual, with an update on the latest crazy news of the day. Yes, we deal with Trump's horrific attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar and the rest of this week's insanity. Last night, CNN turned the next presidential debate into a reality TV show by staging a ridiculous live on the air drawing of podium positions. But I noticed that in all of their coverage of the coming debate, CNN has disappeared Sen. Mike Gravel who is running and did qualify on Thursday for the debate by garnering more than the prescribed 65,000 individual donors. [...]
We seem to be in a downward spiral, spinning out of control. This is all thanks to the hatred and vitriol coming from the White House, where the president is intent on painting four members of the Democratic House caucus as America-hating communists who should be sent "back to their countries" despite the fact that all four are US citizens and three of them were born here. The ugliness is escalating, yet only 95 Democrats voted for an impeachment motion brought Wednesday by Rep. Al Green. Today is Thursday, so Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue [...]
Nicole took the day off yesterday, but she's back today with our regular Tuesday guest, GottaLaff, in tow. Unfortunately, there's no shortage of insanity to discuss today.
We wrap up another week with more gaslighting from the liar-in-chief over his failure to get a citizenship question on the 2020 census. He also held a Troll's Gathering at the White House on Thursday. Journalist Brian Karem was covering the spectacle when he was accosted by Sebastian Gorka. Karem joins us today to talk about what happened and fill us on in the role of the press in the Trump White House. Check out Brian's podcast at justaskthequestion.com Also, all eyes are on New Orleans this weekend as Tropical Storm Barry is expected to make landfall in [...]
After taking a few weeks off, Howie Klein returns to the show, just as a rift is growing between the Democratic House establishment leadership and the progressive freshmen contingent. I'm sure Howie will have a few choice words to share on the subject. Plus the latest news and information and more...
It's a busy Wednesday with lots of news to deal with. First, a hearing yesterday in the 5th circuit court of appeals on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act seemed to go in Trump's direction. Ian Millhiser of Think Progress and author of "Injustices" about the Supreme Court, was there and fills us in on what happened. Plus, we'll ask about today's judgement throwing out an emoluments suit for lack of standing. Then, do you know where the candidates stand on foreign policy? Win Without War Executive Director Stephen Miles weighs on on Iran, Yemen, North Korea [...]
Every Tuesday, GottaLaff joins Nicole Sandler for a no-holds-barred discussion of the news of the day, and there's lots to talk about today - from earthquakes in SoCal to new subpoenas and Barr un-recusing himself...
It's the day after the 4th of July, and we're live today with the latest news of the day. With the Trump administration still trying to make an end run around the Supreme Court to include a citizenship question on the 2020 Census, Nicole speaks with an authority on gerrymandering, David Daley - author of Ratfucked about the ramifications of the rulings on the two biggest cases of this term of the Supreme Court.
"Hey Baby, it's the fourth of July!" In case you didn't recognize it, that's a lyric from "Fourth of July" by the band X. Today, we celebrate Independence Day with music. I promise, these are not the 4th of July songs you'll hear at the fireworks display or on the radio. But I hope you enjoy the selections. I'll be back with a new, live show tomorrow.
It's the day before Donald Trump usurps the 4th of July for his own personal aggrandizement. It's a perfect time to talk to Joy-Ann Reid about her new book, "The Man Who Sold America." Of course, I have a few things to challenge her on. **Post show note - I've known Joy since her time here in South Florida when I beat her out for a job at WINZ radio. We were never friends and, frankly, I'm surprised she came on the show. I read much of her book, and was doing a standard interview when I decided [...]
