I appear on the Nicole Sandler Show on January 27th at 3;30 p.m. e.s.t. with my old friend Nicole Sandler. She have known each other since the Air America days and beyond. President Trump has declared war on the media and his watch dog Steve Bannon has upped the charge. He says the the Media should just shut up and listen. That's fascinating considering when what Mr. Trump continues to say is verifiable lie after verifiable lie. By the way, I am not using the term lie here loosely. What he is saying regarding a whole series of things has been verified false by source after source after source. When POTUS continues to repeat the lie and claim that it is true, regardless of how many times it has been pointed out, I believe that the term lie is appropriate. We will talk about the role of the media and why now, more than maybe ever, the media needs to stand up to politicians.
On a separate issue, we will also discuss torture and the CIA. Apparently, POTUS believes in waterboarding and may be arguing for its continuation. This is quite extraordinary and should result is an amazing conversation. I have some very specific ideas about it and contemplate what it might be like to prosecute this President in the Hague for crimes against humanity.
This promises to be interesting.
