Today, I'm thrilled to welcome my friend, media trainer and strategist, Joel Silberman to talk about politics, the future of healthcare, cancer and more. The website I gave out to use to call some of the more "moderate" Republicans most likely to vote against the GOP Wealthcare bill is TrumpcareToolkit.org. Please use it every day!
Today I'm joined by Gaius Publius who wrote at Down with Tyranny about our collapsing social contract. Kelly Carlin was supposed to be on today's show, but had to postpone due to a death in her family. We'll reschedule as soon as possible. In the meantime, check out the webinar she'll be hosting beginning next Wednesday!
In case you've missed some of the recent news spotlighting the Donald Trump ignorance, dishonesty, narcissism, bigotry, and bluster that passes for his newest version of an immigration policy, here are a few highlights. Please watch the videos all the way through, they're worth the time it takes, which isn't all that much.
