Sam tackles the strong strain of antisemitism that runs through the Left. It was on wild display today by Valerie Plame and then underplayed by CNN. All that and a visit from Sweet James!
Old mistakes keep coming back to bite people in the rear. It turns out journalists shouldn’t have been so quick or forceful in their verdicts that no wiretapping happened at Trump Tower or to his campaign. Details of Anthony Weiner’s “sexting” scandal have leaked and they’re much worse than imagined. All that and Madeline Albright’s ghost of North Korea past have made for a eventful news week.
Thank God Donald Trump isn’t wearing a “WWHD?” bracelet. His speech at the UN has been polarizing and was undeniably much tougher than anything Hillary Clinton would have said. And it’s about time. Sam explains why.
United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May is dealing with the latest terrorist attack by blaming Google. Why? Because Google allows content that teaches anyone how to make a bomb. And again, radical Islamic terrorism and the terrorist who committed the heinous act escape all culpability. Here on our side of the pond, universities and the media are blaming Ben Shapiro for giving speeches at Berkeley, rather than the Antifa thugs who commit acts of violence.
Where do the political sides line up when it comes to DACA and the wall? Do Republicans even want a wall? Plus a visit from Sweet James to tackle driverless cars and what the legal implications will be.
There seems to be a lot of equivocation on Trump’s border wall. Donald Trump’s meeting with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi led to a join statement in which they claimed there will be a standalone DACA deal with no wall included. The White House initially denied it, but Trump’s statements today don’t feel very convincing.
President Trump had Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over for dinner. And there seems to be some differing stories about what was agreed to. Will there be a wall? Will DACA go forward? Sam discusses.
I have to be honest. Here at Sam Nation we were very concerned about what a media landscape would look like without Hillary Clinton. Thank God she’s decided to force herself onto the Democrats for the foreseeable future. And speaking of God, what has this world come to when Charlie Rose is pointing to the Catholic Church for good immigration policy while the Pope tells Catholics to listen to the scientists.
Sam talks 9/11 and Benghazi. Also, Steve Bannon gave his first ever television interview Sunday with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes. You’d better believe Sam has some comments on that.
Hurricane Irma is coming and Florida has been given a mandatory evacuation by Governor Rick Scott. The left in Hollywood is blaming Trump for this as well but there’s another hurricane coming, a political one caused by Hillary’s book tour.
