Stop lawbreakers with Arrest

I would like to comment on what a great job Claire McGaskill does filling in for Nichole. She has become the best fill in gal if you ask me. I listen to Nichole at bedtime b4 falling asleep and Claire is the only other one whose voice is just as relaxing to me even when the subject can fire me up lol. All the guest seem to respect her just like they do with Nichole n have some humor during their conversations which I love. Thanks for finding the diamond in the coal pile

Far left conspiracy theorist

Former Bush lapdog Wallace pushes conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory .She’s been on the wrong side of every issue. How does this woman with a room temperature IQ still have a job? Truly one of the dumbest people on television and a vile and hateful person.
