they just trying to make Joe more relatable showing vulnerable n laughing off is an attempt at hiding his incompetence n makes him a bit goofy n likeable so this trying to up his popularity by being a bit goofy by being this starwars laser shooting character...if u can laugh at your own self, americans love you.. opposite of being a laughing goof is dick Cheney grumpy eww man whom no1 likes....so a nice ploy to get ppl to upgrade joe's image while hiding his incompetency..will it work? maybe.. my take. Am i genius? plz say yes.

a phrase similar to "parents dont have time" when talking about being involved in their kids lives (was driving and didn't pick up exactly when it was said) from the host is disheartening and maybe an aspect of some of the issues. if a parent can't be involved, so to speak, I can't be surprised of some of the issues. if you have kids and are one of the uninvolved.... switch. get involved.

this is such bullshit guys. amber heards claims of Jhonny depp abusing his girl friends have been debunked ( Kate moss ). she was straight up lying . also she is on tape abusing him, admitting to hitting him etc. this is such fake feminist bullshit, trying to protect an abuser !

Listening to this episode, got so mad! Laughed at the whole embryo/zygote thing (idiot). The pot shots against liberals at the end... And the constitution as it was intended as written... Not adjusted for progress made since then?? Sounds like he wants to demote women to property as they were then. What else does he want to return to days when constitution was written?? More people need to be aware of this person and his like. How despicable.

This Podcast is awesome. Love listening to the more in depth explanations. I am very alarmed by the statement made that the US gestational limits are on pat with much of the world, then uses China and North Korea as examples... Not exactly a where we should be aiming.

I was really surprised that a liberal outlet had the stones to list all the sordid things about Hunter. Makes me wonder what they say about him on Fox. #hunterisadisgrace #beaugotallthegoodgenes #hookersandmeth #footfetish
