It’s a special midweek edition of HWX with Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas and Paul Happe of the Nihilist in Golf Pants reconvening to discuss the critical issues of our time. Topics addressed include:

* Black Lives Matters protests – their tactics and motivations are analyzed, including audio of a master of rhetorical jujitsu, Bill Clinton and how he responds, with equal parts shaming and offering up the real villain – the Republican party.

* Hillary Clinton and CPT time – analysis of her allegedly racist joke, as well as exclusive new audio of her subsequent appearance to make amends with a comedy set at the Apollo Theater.

* Trump – with a break in the primary season, the Trump children take center stage, and we analyze the genetic comparison of children by Trump wife. Also coverage of the Trump children’s inability to vote in New York, and Ivanka’s hot new scarf line (with an exclusive sneak preview of her new ad).

He gives us the latest scoop on the new movies getting the Rifftrax treatment, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Also details on the upcoming Rifftrax LIVE show (at a movie theater near you), on May 5, with a riff of the cult classic Time Chasers. We also discuss the grand reunion of the entire Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew (Joel Hodgson et al), coming on June 28. Tickets to both events can be purchased at Rifftrax LIVE.

    Regarding Ivanka’s flammable Chinese scarves, you say you “took this idea and ran with it”. Not the best thing to do with a flaming scarf, I should think.

    Also, as much as I liked your choice of theme song, perhaps “This Girl Is On Fire” might have been more contemporary.

    And by the way, meat raffles are well known in Buffalo!

    But, as I understand it, in Buffalo it means something *completely* different
