THERE’S A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE – TRUMP

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with with the astonishing piece filed by journalist Jeffrey Goldberg for Atlantic magazine whose headline reads, “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers.’” It’s quite a journey we take from there.

There's a Sucker Born Every Minute Trump

As we do every week, Halli and her partner in politics, veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper take a deep dive into the current political landscape in their weekly snap, crackle and pop conversation. And what a week it has been. The United States  reached yet another milestone, a weekly event. There are more than 6.17 million cases of Covid-19 in the United States, more than 187,000 dead and the outbreaks are continuing to spread via classrooms, bar-rooms and via Trump and MAGA Super Spreader rallies. And as we go to tape, there are 59 days 15 hours and 07 minutes until Election 2020. Joe Biden headed out on the campaign trail and much to Trump’s chagrin, did not sound like the old, doddering fool Trump wants voters to think Biden is, Attorney General Barr is on the agenda are are Nancy Pelosi, Antifa, and, of course, Donald Trump.

Stars and Stripes, Jacob Blake, Joe Biden, Covid-19, Donald Trump, Putin, Florida, Election 2020, Black Lives Matter…it’s September and November is just around the corner.

A MOTHER’S STORY OF SEPARATION AT THE BORDER

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Donald Trump ripping families apart at the border and caging children, the Coronavirus surge, Black Lives Matter, Election 2020, Attorney General Barr and the Mike Flynn case are just a few of the subjects we tackle this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table are Rosy Pablo Cruz and Julie Schwietert Collazo the co-authors of THE BOOK OF ROSY, A MOTHER’S STORY OF SEPARATION AT THE BORDER and Former White House correspondent and Time and Newsweek veteran Matthew Cooper.

We begin with our weekly take on all things politics when Halli and Matt slice and dice all things politics, and Donald Trump, too. The coronavirus is surging all across America and Donald Trump seems to care less, taking his re-election show on the road, contributing to the spread of the virus. His polls are devastating, but that isn’t stopping him. Joe Biden is leading in all the battleground states. We discuss, but that’s just where we begin.

In our second half-hour don’t miss a truly extraordinary interview with Rossayra Pablo Cruz, a Guatemalan refugee who along with two of her children, aged 5 and 15, made the arduous 5000 journey to America to save her family from the violence that has upended her country, and cost her husband his life. The first Central American mother who had her children ripped away from her by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) to tell her story in book form, Rosy’s account of her harrowing experience is a gripping shaming story of the human cost of inhumane U.S. policies. THE BOOK OF ROSY is co-written by the woman who rescued Rosy from the hovel that is the detention center prison the U.S. government locked her in, and reunited her with her children, Julie Schwietert Collazo, founder of Immigrant Families Together the grassroots organization that reunites mothers and children, who also joins us.
