Enjoyed talking with Joe. For a little context on “No Trump without Rush”—Rush exploited the repeal of Fairness Doctrine (which said broadcasters had to fairly present differing viewpoints on issues) to spread lies and spew racism, homophobia, sexism, and hatred.
“Without Rush, there would be no Trump” ⁦@alfranken⁩ the only former U.S.Senator currently on tour, joins us on ‘That Trippi Show’. From how he caught the political bug, to reforming the filibuster & the threat to democracy - don’t miss his take link.chtbl.com/TrippiAlFrank…

I’m just thinking about coming up with a hilarious joke about Trump saying he could declassify documents by just “thinking about it.” There! I thought about it. Hilarious joke, huh!?

Flying to Dallas to receive The Ernie Kovacs Award tomorrow. The Ernie Kovacs Show played with the medium of TV in its infancy & inspired previous awardees like John Cleese. I don’t deserve it. But I’m taking it anyway! Get Tickets: videofest.org/tickets/

Understand, this is a matter of deep principle for Lindsey. Just like when he declared Trump “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot.”
GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina introduced legislation Tuesday that would ban abortions nationwide after 15 weeks of pregnancy. cbsn.ws/3xk2gIS
