Just click to play: or download here Donald Trump spoke to the American people today, after Iran retaliated against his assassination of Iran's top general by bombing US military sites in Iraq. We'll try to figure out what it all means. After a few minutes of that, we moved on to hear an interview I taped with Cenk Uygur, founder of The Young Turks, who's running for Congress from CA-25 to replace Katie Hill.
It's a big day, as Nancy Pelosi yesterday finally came around and announced that she's opened an impeachment inquiry into Donald J. Trump. Nicole begins the show by bringing us up to date on the latest developments. Today's interview is with Bonnie Weinstein, wife of Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. She just released a new book, "When Christians Break Bad: Letters from the Insane, Inane and Profane". And I thought my hate mail was bad!
Nicole Sandler and Dave Johnson recap the 2018 midterm elections. Sadly, Beto O'Rourke didn't win. But, as his concession speech shows, he's the real deal. I'm sure we'll see him again, hopefully soon!
After an update on the news of the day, we welcome Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny.com and the Blue America PAC back to the show to talk politics.
After a recap of the day's news, I welcomed Dayna Steele back to the show. Dayna spent most of her adult life on the Houston airwaves, known as the First Lady of Rock & Roll. She's also an author, TV personality, entrepreneur, speaker and will hopefully be the first woman to represent Houston and Texas' 36th district in Congress.
What a night last night, huh? Keith Olbermann and I had the same thought at the same moment... that Donald Trump's campaign ended the moment he said he wouldn't commit to accepting the official election returns. Last night: subverts our elections. Today: jokes about it. My message to @realDonaldTrump: Burn In Hell. pic.twitter.com/q2gvPzYOLf — Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) October 20, 2016 Just don't get cocky or complacent about it as we still have to go out and vote. But, as Howie Klein said on the show today, he saw that moment in the debate last night as the opening for the [...]
