It's been a year, that's for sure. We're glad it's ending. Nicole Sandler welcomes her friend Dave Johnson back to the show for a conversation about the year gone by and why we're already stressed about 2019...
Nicole's here through the holidays, though the news is somewhat slow. So today, Nicole begins her annual year-end look back through the year that we can't wait to end. Comedian Ron Placone joins in with his take on the news of 2018 - that sadly turned into an ideological argument...
We're finally coming to the end of what just might be the craziest week of Trump's presidency so far. We'll have the latest news and information to keep you up to date. MMT proponent, economist Stephanie Kelton returns to the show to talk about the proposed Green New Deal and how it would be paid for, something she wrote about for Huffington Post. And Denis Campbell checks in from the UK with the latest on their crisis surrounding Brexit. Have a very merry Christmas, Grievance-free Festivus, or a wonderful whatever you celebrate. I'll be back Wednesday... In the meantime, enjoy [...]
As the year is winding down, the president is getting more and more unhinged! We begin the show, as usual, with an update on the news of the day. Then, as it's Thursday, it's time for Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC. Today, what's the deal with the Green New Deal? Today I also read an excerpt from a Washington Post op-ed by Helaine Olen, and promised a link. Here you go!
Every Tuesday, @GottaLaff joins Nicole Sandler for a free wheeling discussion of the news of the day as gleaned from Laffy's Twitter stream. It's a busy day in the news (what else is new?), as Flynn was dressed down by the judge and his sentencing delayed, the Trump Foundation is shuttered, and lots more.
It's been another crazy, news-filled week in America. Nicole welcomes comedian, broadcaster and senior correspondent at act.tv, Julianna Forlano back to the show to look back on the week that might mark the end of the beginning of the Trump-Russia probe...maybe. See the video Julianna shot at Trump Tower yesterday where a group read the new children's book "Goodnight Trump"
As usual, Nicole Sandler spends the first half of the show reporting the latest news of the day. As she does each Thursday, she then welcomes Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC back to the show. Today, they discuss the five so-called Democrats in the House who voted to continue our involvement in the war in Yemen. Then, the Cook Political Report for 2020 is out, but Howie says they're always wrong!
It's a busy week in Mueller world - starting with last Friday's release of the Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen sentencing memos, leading up to today's sentencing of Cohen. Jacki Schechner of the InvestigateRussia.org joins Nicole with the latest. Plus, we're closing in on Dec. 15, the last day to buy health insurance via the Affordable Care Act. We'll have to sneak in a few questions about that for Jacki too!
GottaLaff joins with Nicole Sandler each Tuesday to dish on the news of the day, as gleaned from Laffy's Twitter feed. Today, a bonus! Lunch with Chuck, Nancy and D'ump. I played two clips on the show today that I promised I'd share here. The first is from funny lady Lauren Mayer... The second clip is from today's White House meeting between D'ump, Chuck & Nancy. Here's the whole thing. Enjoy the emasculation!
