Join Jim and Greg as they cheer President Trump’s selection of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. They also dig into the New York Times story on Trump’s taxes and discuss what might be damaging and what’s just noise. And they discuss the spectrum of attacks Democrats and their media allies are aiming at Judge Barrett – from Obamacare scares to bashing her for being a working mom to why adopting kids from Haiti is somehow troubling.

    People who think it’s unfair that Trump didn’t pay a lot of taxes, himself, hopefully have the brain power to keep in mind how many people were employed by Trump’s various businesses, and how much tax THEY paid.

    But of course if they’re democrats, they may not have that brain power.

    This was about a ten-minute show that took half an hour.

    If Trump lost $1 billion one year, and gained $250 million each of the next four years, he may not owe any taxes.  Because over those five years he didn’t make any money!

    And in those 5 years, a lot of other people – construction workers, etc, even card dealers and waitresses – made a LOT of money.

    Am I the only one who heard a “Biden for President” ad in this, as well as the next, episode?  Neither Jim nor Greg mentioned it, so I’m guessing that they aren’t involved in picking their ads.

    They are involved in the ads that they actually read. The others are done through an ad service, which goes by location and keywords. I keep getting them from a group called BlackPAC, but I’m in Detroit.

    Many peoples’ “location,” determined by their IP address, doesn’t correspond to their actual physical location even if they’re not using a VPN like Jim and Greg recommend/promote.
