Thanks for calling out Serafin

John you did another great job of talking elections and calling balls and strikes. Tom Serafin has great political knowledge but you are right he plays too much down the middle playing both sides! But after your repeated strong points he finally opened up about the truth of politics in Chicago, Cook County and Illinois!

With the death of objectivity in Chicago media John Kass is the only one telling the truth about politics in Illinois

Yippee! I knew you would come around to President Trump!

Mr. John Kass, welcome to MAGA, where President Trump and 80 million voters just want to Make America Great Again! I hope your impressive brother is a part of the next Trump Administration, he would be a valuable addition. Thank you, also, for for supporting Paul Vallas and now, the rightful President, Donald J. Trump. 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸
