    Trump Just Won the Presidential Election

    Trump Just Won the Presidential Election

    After surviving an assassination attempt in Butler, PA, a defiant and proud Trump was whisked away by his secret service detail with blood on his face and his fist high in the sky. While the staunchest anti-Trump and pro-Biden voters out there are unlikely to change their mind, the majority of American voters are still undecided about their final candidate. But in a moment on a hot Pennsylvania afternoon, Trump changed from a villain against democracy to a hero for democracy by taking a bullet in defense of the country he loves – or at least that's how his campaign is gonna spin it!

Long time fan

Long time fan Andrew I’ve been following from the day I stumbled across your AMA on Reddit. Is there any kind of real commitment to your podcast at this point? I understand your business is exploding and this is becoming increasingly secondary. I guess I just wish it didn’t take an attempt on the former presidents life to get public comments again. I really enjoyed this last season of you making brief assessments of world events is this episode a commitment to any kind of regularity?

Engaging speaker with meh tips with a thinly-veiled agenda.

I stumbled across this gentleman about a week ago on YouTube and decided to try out some podcast episodes. I listened to 10 total and here’s my opinion.

As my title says, the speaker is very engaging and easy to listen to. He’s got a great podcasting voice.

I described the tips as 'meh’ since the ones I heard lacked any real detail. They reminded me of the Monty Python skit "How to Do It." - Great skit, Google it.

There’s an underlying agenda that’s obvious to the point one wonders if he’s working for the CIA as part of some kind of social media outreach program. The last episode I listened to was the July 13 episode, which was hilarious. It was such straight up propaganda that my wife and I busted out laughing while listening in the car. After that one I had to unsubscribe because LOL, No.

To summarize: If you’re looking for life-changing tips, you’ll probably be underwhelmed but Mr. Bustamante is a pretty good speaker and you’ll probably enjoy the podcast if you’re into his political viewpoint.
