Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! In support of full discourse on today’s KITM, David Waldman will not waive reading selected articles out loud before bringing them up for debate: Donald Trump was a no-show at his own inauguration yesterday… or was he? We may never know. If you give Trump $49 million for his $20 million house he’ll be your buddy. Donald will need some cash shortly. Drunken abusive doctor Ronny Jackson didn’t have a problem with...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! The best thing about it being March 4th, finally, is that it will soon be March 5th. That, and David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, and today’s KITM: Are the calculations correct? Is this the day Trump followers have been waiting for? The day is young, but it looks like the storm might need to wait a while longer. The US House did scrap its Thursday session, but not before passing H.R.1, the most important set of...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Greg Dworkin deliver us to the hump of a not-so-chaotic and informative week. Meanwhile, Joe Biden bestows Americans with the gift of summer, by delivering enough vaccine for all of us by the end of spring! All he needs is some more good news and ‘22 and ‘24 are in the bag, right? Well, no, Democrats will need to be unanimous in passing legislation, because Republicans will be unanimous in...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Joan McCarter deliver Tuesday’s KITM as well as you’d expect. (As long as you expect perfection.) Who didn’t know that Trump knew that Mohammed bin Salman murdered Jamal Khashoggi? Governor Andrew Cuomo did remember to ask for consent before his third accused sexual harassment, but Cuomo probably should brush up on every other conceivable aspect of human interaction, perhaps on his own time....

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Remember last March? Okay, forget last March. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin introduce us to a much better one today: Trump-who? at CPAC-what now? CPAC used to be the event Republican losers, looneys and nuts would gather at to say crazy stupid stuff. It still is, of course, but anymore that’s pretty much who they all are, and what they all say every day, and that just ruins everything. (No matter how much they...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman was away for two days, but nobody could take him being gone for six, so here he is for a Friday KITM! Greg Dworkin couldn’t pass up this chance to sail his Raft o’ Stories™ back into port either. CPAC will never be confused with CPAP. The future of conservatism is white supremacy, bigotry, conspiracy theories, fanaticism, and Marjorie Taylor Greene. Trump is putting together a super PAC to...

Kagro in the Morning "Encore Presentation" - February 25, 2020, airing February 25, 2021

2/25/2021
RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Another debate tonight! There can’t be many more of those, at least for a few of them up there. And then there’s Super Tuesday, or one of them, because aren’t all Tuesdays a little super with KITM and David Waldman? Bloomberg hates Bernie, at least at tonight’s debate. Trump loves Bloomberg, at least according to Howard Stern. Richard Walters started at the RNC at 23 years old and in just 7 years is well on his...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) What were we doing a year ago, today? Well, we recorded it for you. And today, we'll answer that question, by... playing you that recording. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin welcomed us to another episode of NKN, Nobody Knows Nothing™. Of course, those two know some things, but check out all that people don’t know: Bernie Sanders blew through Nevada with a “Tyson Fury” this weekend. Indeed, there are some who...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman and Joan McCarter! They probably talk all the time, but if you can hear it, it must be Tuesday on KITM: Merrick Garland is doing very well in his confirmation hearings, which most of us could have guessed for half a decade now. Mr. Garland humiliated Josh Hawley by citing the horror of 1/6, but really, how many Republicans couldn’t you shame by citing the horror of 1/6? The answer is, of course,...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) It’s Monday on KITM. Time for David Waldman and Greg Dworkin to cooperatively overlap us into a new week. No dead air between those two! The Boy Scouts celebrate their first group of female Eagle Scouts! 16 year old Isabella Tunney needed 21 merit badges to qualify, but earned all 137. The US can make vaccine access more equitable, but the prime challenge will be in building trust with vulnerable people through...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman warms us up for the weekend: Ted Cruz is not Donald Trump. Cruz isn’t even Joe Quimby. Ted just assumed someone would clean up the mess at home while he was gone, but Cruz somehow couldn’t guess it would follow him right onto the airplane. (He named his poodle Snowflake — take that, snowflakes!) Not quite tan and rested, Cruz quickly returned from Cancun still treading water, while people kept...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) Why not kick back today with David Waldman and Greg Dworkin, relax and take the time to learn the latest — There’s no Rush! The late ethno-nationalistic sadist Rush Limbaugh was about 30 years later than I would have preferred, but he finally shut up. Also heading to warmer climes — Rafael ‘Ted’ Cruz has been caught snowbirding down to Cancun, Mexico for a long weekend. There wasn’t much for Ted to not do back...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) A symbol of some of the worst America has to offer came tumbling down today. Make that two... But, it only reveals how far we still need to go. David Waldman and guest Greg Dworkin accompany us on today’s leg of our trip: The blackout continues as Texas is surprised by weather too cold for their infrastructure, tax avoidance, ideology, self-image, and sanity. Governor Greg Abbott wonders why AOC would have done...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) David Waldman welcomes you to today’s post-holiday KITM special! How was your Presidents Day, George Washington’s second birthday, the Ides of February (following the Nones, before the Pridie to the Kalend, et cētera)? You learn a lot on this show! For instance, do you know who’s responsible for the “Reid Rule”? You would, if you’ve been paying attention in class... Joan McCarter reminds us that the filibuster...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Happy Presidents Day! Wow, Donald Trump has ruined another thing forever, huh? How about, “Happy Family Day”? Or, “Happy Canadian Flag Day”? Canadians always have it figured out. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin never fear the Ides of February: Our long national nightmare is over, again. Yes, the majority of Americans wanted Trump convicted, but since when do the majority get what they want? The Republicans that...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5!) There’s still an impeachment trial on, and if you think I’m going to be able to keep Armando off the air, you ought to be impeached! We started right off the bat with everybody’s big worry, that the decision to truncate the impeachment process might be a mistake. (Not that anybody’s looking for a miracle, here.) That set things up for Armando’s critique not only of the strategy, but of the performances of some...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman and Greg Dworkin give us a quick, 2 hour review of Trump impeachment II, Day 2: History will demand to know why we didn’t hang Donald Trump. History will discover that it’s because Republicans acquitted him. Trump is as guilty as sin, but so is the Gop, and they know that if they don’t hang together, they will hang separately. But then again, if they hang together… they might hang together, so just...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Donald Trump had a rough day yesterday. Donald’s not in office anymore, but there will never come a day when those words aren’t sweet. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin (almost) have all the kinks worked out on KITM podcast/broadcast! (Once our tech guys figure out how to remove the kitten filter on David we’ll be all set for video.) It looks as if the Presidential Apprentice will close out with their worst ever...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! So many crises! Not so much chaos. Somehow, it all feels more tackleable now. David Waldman rolls up our aggregated sleeves: House impeachment managers, Senate leadership, and even Donald Trump’s legal team have agreed on the impeachment trial rules, so here we go again! The question is, can Donald stand trial? The answer is yes. Republicans argue this business will be a slippery slope, eventually leading to the...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and Armando are here with last night’s game highlights, followed by 2 hours of political news and opinions: Did you catch that commercial with the old guy driving out in the winter with no roof, no hat, telling us that the place to find national unity is in the center of Kansas under a big white cross? They’ll try to sell us anything, I guess. Remember Lou Dobbs? Why bother? Lou’s...
