Mona is absent this week, so Jay grabs the mic and welcomes a guest co-host: David French. They proceed to take a tour of the news.
Our relations with Australia. Our relations with Russia. Justice-to-Be Neil Gorsuch. The National Prayer Breakfast. The Wall. The refugee “ban,” or whatever the agreed-on word is. Betsy DeVos. Holocaust Remembrance Day. Steve Bannon. Three to five million illegal votes (?). The American flag (especially on lapels). Victimology versus personal responsibility. Etc.
Jay and David end with the NBA – especially with Charles Barkley and LeBron James. They also talk about Franz Rupp (pianist) and Adolph Rupp (basketball coach).
The music at the end of the show is Beethoven’s “Spring” Sonata – the concluding Rondo from it – played by Franz Rupp and Fritz Kreisler (not to be confused with Fritz Crisler, the football coach).
