Donald Trump Tells Anderson Cooper to ‘Shut Up’ 15 Times

During the CNN Wisconsin Town Hall on March 29, 2016, Donald Trump essentially tells Anderson Cooper to ‘Shut up’ 15 times (plus one) by saying “Excuse Me.” Who said Trump was rude?

Nana B Passes Into Legend: Scott Ott Podcast #42

Funny what you remember after people pass on.  Nana B left the butter out.
Funny what you remember after people pass on. Nana B left the butter out.

Meredith died last week, but perhaps it’s more accurate to say that she passed into legend. In episode 42 of Scott Ott Podcast, I remember a woman who lived to 103, but more importantly, I treasure the values that animated Nana B.

(NOTE: As any of my loved ones will tell you, I have a poor memory, but also recall odd things most others forget. I apologize for any part of this podcast that doesn’t square with actual events or others’ recollections.)

Finland is about to wipe out a bunch of social service programs for the poor, and replace them with a monthly stipend — a Universal Basic Income — for everyone.

Listen and tell me yours.

Here’s the City Journal story I reference in the podcast.

Data crunchers at FiveThirtyEight.com say evangelical Christianity has been a bulwark against socialism in the United States. Scott Ott explains why in Scott Ott Podcast #40. [Map shows countries governed by “Democratic Socialists”, according to Socialist International.]
Blame evangelical Christians for cheating America out of the glories of socialism — that’s according to some data crunchers at FiveThirtyEight.com. And they may be right, but they don’t fully understand why. In episode 40 of Scott Ott Podcast, I layout the Biblical case against Socialism, and then pile on with the economic, environmental and “pursuit of happiness” cases…until Socialism is sprawled on the floor, a quivering mass of gelatinous failitude.

Stephen Kruiser and Michelle Fields sitting in for Bill Whittle and Stephen Green, joined Scott Ott on PJTV’s Trifecta back in November 2014.

We don’t know yet whether witnesses are right and Donald Trump’s campaign manager physically assaulted my former colleague, Michelle Fields, but we know what Corey Lewandowski and other Trump thugs did to an injured woman afterward. I’ve not been this angry in a long time. Within hours of recording episode #38 of Scott Ott Podcast, we learned that Fields has filed a criminal complaint. The implications for the Republican Party are profound.
