It's a rollercoaster of a day on the show. We were part of history last night, as the House of Representatives, for only the third time in history, voted to impeach a sitting president. Donald J. Trump is now impeached on two articles -- abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. After a break for the holidays, the action moves to the senate where the trial to determine whether he'll be removed from office will take place. Former Congressman Alan Grayson has a new book out, High Crimes: The Impeachment of Donald Trump. He returns to the show after [...]

Despite D'ump's Orwellian pronouncement that "what you're seeing and reading is not what's happening," Nicole Sandler is back to tell you that yes, indeed, it is exactly what's happening. Since there was no show yesterday, GottaLaff joins Nicole today for her Tweet Spot and the rest of the news.
After an update on the day's news, we welcome Denis Campbell back to the show to discuss his new book, Donald Trump: Deplorable Bully -- 45 Shameful Weeks of POTUS 45
It's Tuesday, so GottaLaff joins us to talk about the news of the day, and today's news is all about Donald Trump Jr's email. Karma much?
I don't usually interview right wingers. I can't learn anything from them, and have no desire to give them an outlet to spew their bullshit. But every once in a while, an opportunity presents itself to interview someone so full of themselves, so wrong on just about everything, so completely devoid of humanity that I just can't resist. Such was the case with Roger Stone. He has a new book out: The Making of the President 2016: How Donald Trump Orchestrated a Revolution. He'll be doing a book signing down here -- in Palm Beach, of course, at The Palm Beach Bookstore, 215 [...]
Are you as sickened, outraged, frustrated, worried, and as determined to effect change as I've been since November? Feeling a little helpless, a lot exhausted, discouraged, at a total loss? Want to let your elected officials know exactly how you're feeling, offer them a suggestion or twelve whenever you get the urge? Wondering how to use your voice effectively? Ever wish you could make even the tiniest difference without so much as getting out of bed? Yeah, me too. There are so many ways one can be pro-active, even if you're physically or financially unable to participate in ways you [...]
Today's Los Angeles Times letters to the editor, because our voices matter: So we are now charged with babysitting the president? You must be kidding me. (“Let's normalize Trump,” Opinion, March 14) Normalizing President Trump will only enable him and his administration to enact their agenda and destroy our country. Have we not seen this with the totally inept first travel ban and the horrendous healthcare bill, which will enrich the top earners and strip millions of insurance coverage? Dan McLaughlin’s statement, “Some of the ways he’s not normal are good: He has open contempt for the swamp of D.C.,” [...]
It's Thursday, so Howie Klein was with us. Before the show, he joked on Twitter No, I'm not going to discuss the $1.6 billion bribe to Trump on @nicolesandler's show today-- unless she forces the issue. https://t.co/8GpW6hAEgS — Howie Klein (@downwithtyranny) February 2, 2017 When I asked him about that, his mood changed as he explained that he received a threatening phone call telling him to take down that post. The call came from an unknown person, to his unlisted number. These are scary times. But as Howie reminded us, last week, 35% of Americans said they already wanted to [...]
