  • Reclusive Billionaire Drops Tens of Millions into Trump Campaign 6/21/24

    21 JUN 2024 · Comedian, actor and writer Hal Rudnick cohosts. Banking heir Timothy Mellon poured $50 million into to a pro-Donald Trump super PAC last month. The donation came right after Trump’s felony hush money trial convictions. The money is now with the Make America Great Again Inc., PAC and will likely be used on a nationwide advertising campaign next month. Is Trump setting the stage for a potential win by President Biden in the upcoming debate? Political analyst and journalist Michael Shure has some ideas about why Trump is suddenly calling President Biden, a formidable opponent. Summertime in Florida is always just a little bit crazier. That gives a bit of a seasonal edge to Friday Fabulous Florida. The Culture Blaster, Michael Snyder, will be in to celebrate pop culture. He’ll look at what’s worthy of streaming, review the latest movie releases, and if we’re lucky, throw down some sports.

    17 JUN 2024 · Video is circulating of President Biden at a weekend fundraiser in LA. He looks like he’s waving to people in the audience along side former President Barack Obama.
