    Trump’s E.O. Turns US Airports into Protest Zones

    Trump’s E.O. Turns US Airports into Protest Zones

    Members of Congress are declaring there is a “Constitutional Crisis” in the wake of Trump’s Executive Order banning Syrian refugees and travelers from six majority-Muslim nations in the world. We breakdown the chaos of the weekend.

    And, it’s not just protests at airports around the country that are capturing the unrest toward President Trump’s executive order. So, too, are dissent memos coming out of the State Department. Trump’s own administration is already turning on him. That story coming up later.

    Also, we’re going to get Donald Trump’s first Supreme Court nomination soon….and that could be paired with some uncharacteristic courage from Democrats. Some Senate Dems are already threatening to give Trump’s pick the Merrick Garland treatment. We’ll tell you who, later in the show.

    Trump and the US Deep State

    Trump and the US Deep State

    With the Trump presidency comes several power struggles. The White House versus the intelligence agencies. The intelligence agencies versus themselves. And the White House versus themselves. We chat with Alternet’s Washington Correspondent, and author, Jefferson Morley about it all.

    Plus, the first full week of the Trump Presidency means we have a full Garbage Can line-up today. From high ranking officials to an angry traveller, we run-down the worst of the worst in humanity this week. Stick around until the very end because you won’t want to miss who goes in…..the Garbage Can.

    The Origins of Trump’s Tweets and Tall Tales

    The Origins of Trump’s Tweets and Tall Tales

    Mystery solved! We know where Trump got the idea of millions voting illegally in the last election. It was from a German golfer. No joke.

    Also there’s a very real assault on the Freedom of the Press underway during these early days of the Trump administration: the jailing of journalists. Oddly though, mainstream news media outlets are hesitant to even cover the story. We talk with media writer Adam Johnson about it later in the show.

    And, the Labor Department released data today, which gives us a better picture of the Obama administration legacy; specifically, why it lead to President Donald Trump. We’ll explain later, in a People’s Bulletin.

    Dems #Resist Trump...by Approving his Nominees

    Dems #Resist Trump...by Approving his Nominees

    Trump’s cabinet nominees are sailing through the Senate, and you can thank Democrats for it. Can the Democratic Party really lead the resistance to Trump when it approves all of his nominees.

    Coming up, DC is still recovering from inauguration, Disrupt J20 and the Women’s March. We sift through the wreckage with our favorite local reporter. DCist’s Rachel Kurzius stops in, to chat about the inaugural clean-up.

    And with the stroke of his pen, President Donald Trump gave a big F-you to tens of thousands of environmentalists that worked to defeat pipeline projects like Keystone XL and DAPL. We’ll break down the latest executive orders that could leave the planet even more vulnerable to climate change

    Liar’s Press Briefing

    Liar’s Press Briefing

    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had press briefing number two on Monday. It was his first time facing the press since Saturday when he uttered five lies in five minutes about Trump’s inauguration attendance.

    Trumponomics are shaping up, as the President discussed his plans for the US economy, this morning, before a meeting with a dozen CEOs. We’ll let you know what Trump said, and what the reaction was, later in the show.

    Also, Trump had to have known this was coming. He’s been in office just a few days and he’s already facing a lawsuit alleging he’s in violation of the US Constitution. It’s that pesky emoluments clause. We’ll discuss the lawsuit and the possible release of Trump’s tax returns later.

    Trump Takes the Reins Over His Swamp

    Trump Takes the Reins Over His Swamp

    Coming up, dissent and pepper gas clogged the streets and air of DC, today. We couldn’t leave the content factory, but we chat to two people who were there. The Street Fight Radio Boys….Brett Pain and Bryan Quinby….join us.

    Also, just because it’s inauguration day doesn’t mean we’re not taking out the trash. Our Garbage Can will be in studio. Our Garbage Candidates will be named...and one of them will get tossed in. Stick around until the end of the show to find out who.
