With Donald Trump suddenly whining about Kasich, and predicting doom for the economy, voters in Wisconsin’s open primary may hand Trump a shocking defeat that turns the tide. Scott Ott joins Dave Williams and Amy Chodroff on KLIF-570AM (Dallas-Fort Worth) to consider this, and Hillary Clinton’s Berning sensation.
It’s time for Republicans to speak bluntly about the undeniable weakness of Donald “Donny” Trump. On the eve of Super Tuesday, just before the GOP debate in Houston, I gave advice to Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio for hamstringing the pompous blow-hard. Wonder of wonders, they took it. Listen to find out how they can take it further on episode #33 of Scott Ott Podcast.
Obscene, racist, anti-Semitic, homosexual slurs…that’s how supporters of Donald Trump responded to my recent Scott Ott Thought video, listing the 10 reasons why I’m not supporting him. Hear that story, plus my response to some listener questions about the presidential race on this episode (#31) of Scott Ott Podcast.
A young feminist needs Hillary Clinton like a fish needs a bicycle, to paraphrase a saying popularized by former feminist icon Gloria Steinem. On episode #29 of Scott Ott Podcast, we talk with my 27-year-old Progressive daughter, Grace Barron-Martinez about Steinem’s awkward interview with comedian Bill Maher, and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s damnation of Grace and her fellow non-Hillaryites to a special place in Hell. What can Hillary do to turn the tide of youth, and especially young women, toward the one who would become the first female president?
Hillary Clinton, speaking at a Democratic town hall meeting hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper, said she received $675,000 for speeches to Goldman Sachs, the Wall Street finance firm, because “that’s what they offered.”
Nevertheless, she said, Goldman knows that, “I’m going to shut ’em down. I’m going after them. I’m going to jail them if they should be jailed. I’m going to break them up.”
Would President Bernie Sanders have to Bern down the House…and the Senate…in order to accomplish his socialist purposes. In this episode of Scott Ott Podcast, I talk with my daughter — and Sanders supporter — 27-year-old Grace Barron-Martinez. She explains what she thinks Sen. Sanders means when he says that if Congress won’t cooperate, he’ll go straight to the American people.
