Isikoff Sucked!! Good Riddance!

The other two were good. The stories were interesting. But Isikoff kept on being the devil’s advocate to a ridiculous extent. I don’t know if he sincerely held those beliefs, but he was outrageous and should have been fired for his irrational behavior.

For example, when Rudy Giuliani had his law license suspended for all of his ludicrous activities and probably illegal activities in court for Trump, Isikoff questioned whether that action by the Bar Association in whatever district that acted against Rudy could be going too far and might be a precursor to actions against attorneys undeserving of such sanctions in the future!

Please! Isikoff just loved to argue the other side no matter how stupid his opinions were.

I’m glad Isikoff is gone!
