    On today's episode...

    - We had a big Fourth of July weekend, but not as big as Trump who gave a speech in front of Mount Rushmore on the 3rd then again at the White House on the 4th. We discuss the content and reaction from both sides

    - Ghislaine Maxwell has been found alive so now she can totally tell us everyone involved in the horrible sex trafficking of underage girls with her and Epstein right? She will be totally believable and honest and justice will totally prevail here

    - Hong Kong was pretty much officially cancelled by China last Tuesday with the passing of the National Security Law which allows China to throw any Hong Kong dissenters of China in jail for life. China has now started removing pro democracy books from Hong Kong libraries

    - Here is a fun headline. A rare case of brain-destroying amoeba has been confirmed in Florida

    - So QAnon is not only back, apparently it never left and it’s so strong that multiple active legislators and new candidates are actually in the cult, or whatever it is. This weekend General Michael Flynn had a "take the oath" party to have his friends and family pledge to Q

    - And of course, in the biggest news of the weekend, Yeezus himself is giving us the gift of choice this election season. You can chose to vote him in as President if what he says is true, as he declared his intentions to run for President of the United States in 2020. He has missed the deadline for several states but if you think he will or won't run officially you can bet on it either way with our sponsor PredictIt, and if you go to that link create an account and deposit at least $20, you will get a free $20 no strings attached.

    7/1: Drunks Operating Heavy Machinery, Bison Attacks, Parrot Prison

    7/1: Drunks Operating Heavy Machinery, Bison Attacks, Parrot Prison

    WTF Wednesday Edition

    -Bison are generally mad as hell and it seems that they're not going to take it anymore. This Australian idiot (below) tried to pull off a sick finishing move while hunting a Bison with a crossbow, but he got just a scoch too close and paid the price in the form of a pound of flesh from each thigh. I hope he's delicious.

    -Two hammered Irish sailors were sentenced to real jail time after they sailed 26 foot pleasure craft into a shipping lane which they then refused to get out of for either the harbor master or Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

    -Hugo's Tacos in LA was forced to close both of it's locations temporarily after the restaurant's employees were repeatedly attacked by customers whom were asked to put on masks. According to a post on Hugo's Facebook page (below) some customers went as far as to throw "objects and liquids" at the restaurant workers who dared threaten the customers liberty to breath unimpeded.

    -A Tampa man who runs a parrot sanctuary sent an email to the Tampa Bay Times recently arrived with the subject line “SOS.” The message read "My name is Majid Esmaeili (AKA) Magic and I am prisoner in my own property with over 200 parrots. No way to get in or out." ... this one is pretty self explanatory if you ask me. Also, after taking a look at this poor bastard it's pretty clear living amongst tropical birds was inevitable.

    On today's episode...

    - The couple from St Louis that were in the front lawn of their mansion pointing guns at protesters that broke into their gated community to protest the mayor are apparently protected by Missouri's “Castle Doctrine”, which allows people to use deadly force to defend private property. Also the man is way shorter than his wife

    - Yesterday the Supreme court blocked a controversial Louisiana abortion law that would have closed nearly every clinic in the boot. It was a 5-4 ruling and what really shocked people is that Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s four liberal justices to block the law

    - TikTok is going a bit on the dark side with a new viral trend being TikTokers expressing their depression and possibly desire to commit suicide via the phrase "I had pasta for dinner last night" or some variation of that. This is crazy alarming, if you yourself need help or know someone that does please contact the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255

    - Just when you though 2020 had enough b******t to deal with: Coronavirus, Murder Hornets, Riots, The Oldest and Craziest Presidential Candidates in the History of the Country…here’s one more and it’s not going to be that big of a shocker… another Virus is headed everyone’s way from China It’s a new Swine Flu. The last one was H1N1 from Mexico in 2009, this one is G4 EA H1N1 from China, carried and pigs and transmittable to humans, and it’s got the same traits that could make it another pandemic

    - It’s summer time in the UK, which means that 94 year old Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family, with the exception of Harry and Megan of course, have taken up residence at their summer home in Scottland at Balmoral castle in Aberdeenshire. Because of COVID, pretty much all of the public facilities are shut down which include public bathrooms. So all the people going to the giant park that is Aberdeenshire for long day trips have been literally shitting in the Queen's lawn.

    - A Starbucks barista made $80,000 in tips in all time backfire after a Karen who was asked to put a mask on threw a temper tantrum and took a picture of the 24 year old before storming out without a mask and without coffee. Her Facebook post calling the barista a loser for not serving her backfired to the tune of he got an 80 grand go fund me by someone that didn't like her post.

Stellar Podcast

This is by far the most underrated podcast put out by barstool sports, a great way to get mostly unbiased takes on the news and politics. Each and every good morning from Will actually makes me have a good morning which is why this is the first thing My girlfriend and I listen to when I wake up. The interaction with your listeners is unique and awesome. I can’t wait to see Hard Factor grow to rival Joe Rogan, Call Her Daddy, etc. Also, Boat Race part 3¿?
