What Hugh Hewitt Should have Asked Donald Trump

By 25 Comments 974 views

I’ve made no bones about the fact that I dislike Donald Trump. But I thought that he blew an opportunity when he appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s show.

The Corruption and Fundamental Transformation of America by the GOP

By 20 Comments 1,576 views

Last night, I was caught in heavy traffic and a horrible back-up for diverting traffic off the interstate to facilitate road construction, but the hours of creeping along the interstate went faster by listening to Savage interviewing Donald Trump.
