Welcome to Wednesday, that middle-of-the-work-week day during which we traditionally enjoy visits from Greg Dworkin and Joan McCarter.
So, we’re gonna do that, again. Because it’s pretty great.
Plenty to catch up on, as always. Including the news that Trump claims to have finally vetoed that Yemen resolution, even though the Congress.gov website still says it hasn’t even been presented to him.
Well, they could be wrong. Or, Trump could have imagined that his entry into the Publisher’s Clearinghouse Sweepstakes was in fact a veto message. I’m not sure which is the more likely.
Listen right here at 9:00 AM ET!
PODCAST LISTENERS: There’s a new podcast platform in town, and the big news is: this one pays! RadioPublic pays podcast producers at $20 CPM for listens on their native app (available for iPhones & Androids), financed by pre- and post-roll ads they insert. Not a bad way to support the show, with somebody else’s money!
So if you’re a podcast listener, please consider downloading the RadioPublic app on your Android or iOS phone. Yes, you can still download directly from their site, or listen to the player embedded here at Daily Kos. But it’s listens in their app that count toward payment. And get this: listen to just three episodes in their app, and we earn a one-time, $1 “loyal listener” bonus.
Nothing changes on our end. It’s still Greg Dworkin, Joan McCarter, and even Armando. Plus also, me. And you! As always, we still want your voice on the air with us. Sit down with your smart phone or other electronic recording device and send us your stories and commentary to share with the audience. There’s no easier way to try your hand at podcasting, without all the hassle!
Of course there’s no substitute for having your support via Patreon, or one-time contributions via Square Cash. (And hey, if you want a cool trick for donating sorta-kinda cost free, get their cash.me app and use this share code to get $5 in your account (plus $5 in mine) when you send your first $5 (to anyone)!
For now, how about one on the house? Here’s what we did on our last show:
Great news, the Notre Dame de Paris cathedral made it through the night, and you can hold up on cancelling any tours you might have scheduled over the next thousand years or so. That was some prime real estate opening up downtown, so of course that got Donald Trump’s attention. Donald hoped to clean up the area a little and maybe build something really nice in Paris for once, if only France could meet him halfway with their fire regs… Luckily, France did have experts to address their situation. We, however, have Trump, and his usual gang of idiots at Fox, assisted by their extraordinary gang of idiots that always seem available for these events. If Donald wasn’t President, he’d be cable news’ number one guest right now. But that was only half of today’s KITM! David Waldman has only two days left to prepare us for the release of the 2nd William Barr summary. Actually, the latest Barr summary wasn’t the first time Barr pulled this sort of thing. Barr misled Congress in his 1989 summary memo, redacting just the right/wrong information about violation of UN charter, international law, abductions in foreign countries… yada, yada. Oh, and Bill Barr has some connections to Vector Group, Alfa Bank, Deutsche Bank, Russia, yada yada… Maybe you’re wondering if a cabinet member has ever been impeached? “Watergate grand jury member No. 1” personally lived through the Teapot Dome of American scandals, and therefore he knows a bit about those things.
