With all of the misinformation being floated from fake and legit news sources alike, I thought we should find out what's really going on with the recounts, so I called on BradBlog's Brad Friedman, host of the BradCast, to bring us up to speed. Then, since it's Tuesday, GottaLaff joined us to continue our disbelief discussion too...
Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). His blog posts range from political comedy to humorous commentary on pop culture. For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts, too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc. A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day: China has lodged a complaint over a controversial phone call between President-elect DONALD TRUMP and Taiwan's President that has overturned [...]
Donald Trump is a fucking liar. And his surrogates are going out claiming that facts are subjective. ARGHH! Seriously, listen to this exchange on NPR's Dianne Rehm Show with Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes in which she claims There is no such thing unfortunately anymore as facts Aside from the fact that it's grammatically horrendous, it's factually fucking insane!

And RIP to Cherie Haskins, [...]

(I know that, if you're reading this, you haven't been taken in by the most successful con artist these shores have ever seen, so that wasn't [...]
As the official election recount gets underway in Wisconsin, Greg Palast joined me on the show today to talk about what happened. He firmly believes the election was stolen. The way they allegedly did it is laid out in an impressive, credible and very entertaining manner in his new film, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy. Follow that link to buy or rent the film (it goes to the Nicole Sandler Amazon portal, so we'll get credit if you do it through that link). Knowing Greg was coming on the show today, I finally sat down to watch it and was [...]
Republican U.S. presidential nominee Donald Trump hugs a U.S. flag as he comes onstage to rally with supporters in Tampa, Florida, U.S. October 24, 2016. REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst As much as I try to believe that things can't be as bad as they seem, Donald Trump does something else to make me say, "Oh yes they can." This weekend, after the news broke that Jill Stein had raised enough money to finance recounts in the three very close swing states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, Donald Trump lied to millions of Americans when he Tweeted In addition to winning [...]
