why don’t u do a story or have a discussion about why boris johnson eats birthday cake and a few other non big deal things and he gets ousted. compare that to trump having high security level docs, nuclear secret docs, etc. (he knew he had them because trump said they are his and he can keep them) and people make excuses for trump and to question why he had them to right is treasonist when what trump did is treasonist. what is wrong with US? many days i wish we had lost the revolutionary war. ahh yes, parliament, slavery ended much earlier, etc. there is a lot the founding fathers mucked up with this now broken experiment.

Special episode

I really enjoyed Friday’s episode all about Trump and the affidavit. I wish there was more like that because it broke it down very clearly for me.

Hate the music

Music used to be OK. Now it is beyond irritating. Horrid! Seems like I am not the only person who hates the music. With all due respect, could you show some respect!
