Megyn Kelley swats Newt, Nasty Women, and T&Z Talk Money

We took a departure from the regular fare in this episode and talked about more personal issues. We hit on some of the highlights of what's going on in politics, but had a bit of an unplanned detour. Listen in and settle in.

Nasty Woman, Bad Hombres, and Making Stuff Up

The final and third debate in the insane series of Trump v. Clinton and Tony and Richard run down some of the highlights of the 90 minute fiasco.

Trump called Hillary a nasty women, lied about his wife, his kids, his wealth ... and well everything. It got nasty and if Trump was trying to prove that he had an awesome temperament, loved women, was loved by women, or knew anything about foreign policy short of the conspiracy theories he's read on lunatic websites, he failed.

Melania on Donald's Behavior, Donald on Hillary's Drug Problem, and Elizabeth Warren is Spot On

OK, so Melania Trump believes that boys will be boys, even when her “boy” was 59 years old when he admitted to sexually assaulting women. OK, so next exhibit: According to Mrs. Trump he didn’t know the mic was on…kinda the point Melania. He didn’t, therefore it was his honest feelings. Oh, Melania, T&Z asks you to have someone other than Steve Bannon write your stuff for your own sake and for when the prenup gets caught in the court system and his words are used against you. Maybe plagarize from someone intelligent, like Michelle Obama, for example.

Well, as the first war on drugs didn’t work, T&Z are not so sure why Trump thinks his war on drugs will, and frankly, we’d like to see him take a drug test. And so would the women on The View. Can you say deflection?

And we end the show with Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s impersonation of a clucking chicken (really!). It’s worth it.

Is Trump’s Brain Rigged?  — Wikileaks and Why It Doesn’t Matter — Interpreting Trump While Invoking Gingrich/Giuliani/Pence

OK, so Hillary is not on drugs, all women are not liars and elections are not rigged. So, as we explore what Trump says, what his surrogates claim he is saying and what to expect moving forward (not that anyone can truly figure that out), T&Z have their take at it.

As the “liberal” media is spending as much time on Wikileaks as they are on The Donald’s ongoing implosion, Trump is a one man PR firm whose wheels fell off weeks ago. If we were him we would fire him.

Oh my, the upcoming “debate” should be a doozy, or a freak show of Barnum and Bailey proportions. Politics 2016. The year of the drag-on!

Trump Does Hamlet - Michelle Obama Chimes in - Slings and Arrows

Back to back and overlapping speeches by Trump, Michelle, and Barack addressed crowds this weeks and the differences were stark. From Michelle Obama's impassioned speech in which she addressed the pervasive sexual assaults that happen to women regularly, Barack Obama's charm, humor and wit at the podium and then Donald Trump's poor attempt at reading a speech off of a teleprompter. His unnatural cadence, mispronunciation of simple words and weird hand gestures.

Tony and Richard discuss these speeches and more in this episode.

See Me — Touch Me— Feel Me…

Nope, not a Who song, but a Trump mantra, sadly. As more allegations of @realDonaldTrump’s disgusting and disrespectful behavior toward women makes itself public, as only 'The Donald' can, to solve this issue, is to threaten to sue the messenger. Way to go Donald.

The mainstream media has FINALLY had enough, and none too soon. Now they have drawn a line in the proverbial sand and are not allowing Trump surrogates to cross it because not every answer should start with, "but Hillary Clinton.” Touché

Until tomorrow compatriots. Don’t forget, nothing replaces voting on November 8, not the 28th as Trump suggested.

The Trump Slump — Hillary Explodes and Trump Implodes — Ryan Ain’t Lyin’

Oh, what a wonderful time to be political pundits, and T&Z had a field day today as the Trump Train has fallen over the abyss and is heading for the bottom on the gulch! As Hillary Clinton’s leads has reached almost insurmountable numbers, The Trumpster continues to scream insults at her, accuse her of having no stamina, and says her behavior toward women is worse than Bill Clinton’s. And, we wish we we lying, but alas, this is Donald Trump, after all, so we suffer for another 28 days.

Stay tuned for the show tomorrow as we continue to try and explore the reality and the alternate universe that is American politics 2016!

The Debate, Melania's Pussy Shirt, and Trump Grabbing ....

Today's T&Z welcome back show was filled from top to bottom with debate, denial, debunking and delusion. Facts were left on the cutting room floor for The Donald as he, very Grinch-like, made his stalking presence known to both Hillary Clinton and the audience. With some in the media praising Trump's return from oblivion, that didn't last even 12 hours before the rest of the country chimed in declaring Hillary Clinton the winner of the debate by large margins. Trump is toast, the nut and grain kind. His chances of being president of anything but his own companies is done as well and once November 8 is behind us, America actually will be safe again, from groping and fondling our American ideas. WOW, what a night!
