My daughter Grace, a 27-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter, weighs in on the presidential race, the Trump and Sanders phenoms, and she makes a November predication. We kick off episode 28 of Scott Ott Show with our first-ever live interview (had a few audio hiccups, but straightened it out around the 6:10 min. mark.) Then, two viewer questions launch us into a passionate tribute to the pursuit of happiness, and of telling the federal government to stick it. And we end with some funny stories and a song.
I also carved out my interview with Grace from the rest, so you can get right to the best part of the show.
“If I had known that every candidate I like would drop out of the race…I would have liked Donald Trump.” Scott Ott joins Amy Chodroff and Dave Williams on KLIF 570AM in Dallas/Fort Worth for a morning-after debrief of the impact of the Ted Cruz campaign suspension, and Bernie Sanders rolling revolution.

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.
Despite having two Cuban-American presidential candidates — Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio — Republicans don’t seem to be doing much to reach the rapidly growing Latino population. In this episode (#34) of Scott Ott Podcast, my daughter, Grace Barron-Martinez, makes the pitch for changing the approach from talk of walls and simmering xenophobia, to genuine connection with these future voters who share many Republican values.
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.
