Reading

💕Midnight Library. (Did Obama’s book as audio). I’m reading fiction as I need an escape from politics (when I’m not listening to podcasts, watching & reading news)

Get over yourself, Lovett. 🙂

Total fan of PSA, but really, Lovett…. You were embarrassing in the interview with Buttigieg. Your “jokes” were street level and juvenile, beneath the Office he holds. Kudos to Pete for “not understanding the question” and therefore not responding. Step up your game. We are still in very serious times, levity is appreciated, but not in this particular interview.

Absolutely lacking in substantive arguments

PSW Willfully ignores logical counter arguments from the opposition, while simultaneously lying about major issues simply to further their preferred political causes. Their commentary is usually a steady diatribe of logical fallacies and profanity laced personal attacks. They will never try to ask difficult questions to any guest they agree with politically. In the months I’ve been listening they have never interviewed a guest they disagree with politically.
