Kagro in the Morning - January 21, 2021

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Wasn’t that so nice? President Joe Biden’s administration sure has higher production values and standards than Trump’s Presidential Apprentice. Much more likable cast, too. This show looks to have legs. David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and Armando are here today, so you know we have a lot of information to go through. Sit down and pay attention. In two hours you can get back to your Bernie memes. Is it only one day...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman kept me sane. Probably you, too. Is it thick or is it thin today? Either way, we always have a Kagro in the Morning to help go through it. We sure needed a lot of KITMs to get us to today. We all needed a KITM on November 9, 2016, so we got one, and we sure need one today, so here we are. Yay! Let’s all go get our questions answered and our marbles corralled: Greg Dworkin joined Greta Thunberg and...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! The curtain can’t come down hard enough on Donald Trump tomorrow, but today is Presidential Apprentice’s not-(fingers crossed)-so big finale! Lil Wayne gets pardoned! Tiffany is engaged! It’s the craptacular ending we always hoped for! Lucky for us, we have David Waldman and Joan McCarter on KITM today for some quality time: Now is, of course, the time to “look forward, not back”... Forward to Donald Trump’s...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Only 6 more hours of KITM before the inauguration! David Waldman and Greg Dworkin make these two hours count: It is a hopeful Martin Luther King Day, full of fresh starts and new chances. Donald Trump, never really president, is almost... almost an ex-president. It’s time to repent, to heal, shun abominations, and if not smash, at least put a little distance on the false idols. BTW, Donald J. Trump is one crazy...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman delivers us to the weekend before the denouement of Presidential Apprentice: If you are a regular listener to KITM, you are probably aware that Donald J. Trump, and the Trump administration really suck. As you will be gratified to hear, it seems that word is finally getting around. It’s never too late to catch up to news — except for those people whose lives have already been destroyed, or ended, of...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and thou make a beautiful combination to get through a Thursday like this: Donald J. Trump, who no one likes, is a traitor, and the worst president ever, was impeached again yesterday. He doesn’t know why. Hope Hicks isn’t there to explain it to him. Donald is sure that it is somebody’s fault however, probably Rudy’s. Trump is certain that if he went to the Capitol yesterday he would...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Welcome to the second annual Donald J. Trump impeachment! David Waldman, Greg Dworkin, and I have a million things to share with you today. Somehow we’ve compressed it down to about 2 hours and a few thousand links: Donald went to not-the Alamo and found out no one remembered to tell them he was coming. There weren’t many places in Texas that he could have gone to anyhow. If only Trump had his Twitter, he...

Radio Public|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman welcomes Tuesday guest Joan McCarter to help count off the week, before the day, before the inauguration. The Big Lie and the Big Liar head to Texas today, for yet another last stand. Nothing will shut Donald Trump up, but soon, one way or the other, he won’t be saying it as President. Of course, plenty of dangerous crazy morons will continue to believe him, even as their boats sit at the bottoms of...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman, Greg Dworkin and even Armando are on today, to answer each other’s questions, and likely yours too: For a guy raised up by God, Donald Trump sure is catching Hell. Fiery Irony seems to be pouring down from the heavens lately. The Black police officer hero (and should-be recipient of Biden’s first Presidential Medal) is named GOODMAN, for God’s sake. Eugene Goodman used his skin, uniform and quick...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman brings us the latest William Belknap news and opinions, and much, much more today! Donald Trump made his long-awaited pivot yesterday, but you got to hope this won’t break Democrats’ stride toward action. Republican senators now (anonymously) regret not doing more to contain Trump. Donald, Jared, Ivanka, etc. could not be contacted for comment. Remember when you see Capitol Police retreating from...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman, broadcasting from the center of our vast KITM World Headquarters, phones Greg Dworkin down in the laundry room, to discuss all that happened yesterday: Did you read my summary yesterday? No? Well, I don’t blame you. Yesterday was pretty crazy. Yesterday, I was certain Trumpers would be no challenge to Capitol police. The day before, I thought even the idea of an assault on the House chamber to be an...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! A million things to talk about today! A million things to talk about happening right now! All can pretty much be summed up as Donald J. Trump is a loser. A lose-lose, looooozy, lose, loser. Just how much of a loser is Donald Trump? David Waldman and Greg Dworkin have pondered that question for years, and yet have difficulty reaching a conclusion, as Donald Trump keeps losing, and losing... Of course, it’s not only...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Tomorrow, Republicans could replace Senate Democrats with exact body doubles. Proud Boys could rappel through the ceiling of the House chamber. Or maybe, it will be just a “regular order” legislative day. Who knows? Well, David Waldman, Armando, and Joan McCarter have some pretty good guesses on today’s KITM: Republicans are, yes, in disarray. Mitch McConnell is subtly steering the party… in that he has let go of...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! This week we have entered a time paradox in which we hurdle towards January 6th, while January 7th feels like it’s moving farther away. David Waldman and Greg Dworkin deftly pilot us toward the black hole: Donald Trump packed a few more impeachable and criminal, or at least censurable offenses into the weekend with the 19th phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, to beg/extort one more vote...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! It’s a brand-new show for a brand new year! Scott Anderson has got the day off, so it falls to me to summarize today’s show. And boy, do I ever not want to do that! So I will warn you in advance that I intend to half-ass it! The Senate advanced their work in overriding the NDAA veto yesterday, and everyone’s a little bit puzzled as to how it’s going down, and what it means for the prospect (if there ever was any)...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! David Waldman rings out the old year today, but don’t expect any ringing in of the new until Monday’s KITM: Mike Pence cancelled his trip to Israel and Donald Trump cancelled his appearance at Mar-a-Lago’s New Year’s Eve party. Some people have a bad feeling about this. It’s probably not good news, but it might not be bad news. After all, early and youth voting in Georgia is freaking out Trump and the Gop, and...

RadioPublic|LibSyn|YouTube|Patreon|Square Cash (Share code: Send $5, get $5! Armando’s in the house! Virtually — and Greg Dworkin, and of course, David Waldman, so you’d expect a process and umbrage filled KITM. Not so much umbrage as you might expect, though. Of course, Donald Trump has earned every bit of disdain he’s received, and then some. It’s just that Donald and the 2020 nightmares are ending and COVID help is coming. What can Trump do now, other than get a few people, or a few...

The glimmer of civilization today in the form of $2000 survival checks, and our subsequent collapse into barbarism 8 days later. David Waldman brings on Joan McCarter, busy the last few days installing a new house inside of her old house, for discussion and analysis: Thank you, Donald Trump! Donald self-served America right into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ hands. Even Kelly Loeffler...

David Waldman returns from his long St. Stephen’s Day weekend, wrenned out but raring to go into our dramatic denouement of The Presidential Apprentice! Will it be an end to an era? Well, there were plenty of transparently corrupt megalomaniacs before Donald Trump showed up, and there will be plenty of self-serving dim-wits after he’s gone, yet probably no one will be able to lose so ungracefully and so often,...
