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.

Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. On this episode of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we begin with presumptive Democratic Party Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s pick for his Vice-President, Senator Kamala Harris; take a look at where the country is in the Covid-19 pandemic; explore Trump’s attempt to win re-election with his sabotage of the United States Post Office, and hey, what’s a podcast without a mention of Trump fixer Michael Cohen and the infamous pee tapes. That’s  where we begin.

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. As Covid-19 ravages the United States, school’s are being forced to open by Republican governors. How is that gonna end? Before Joe Biden’s announcement of Kamala Harris as his running-mate, he was continuing his surge in the polls. Donald Trump knew that Harris was a likely pick, but has flailed in his response to her Biden nod. But what’s a day without Trump playing his two favorite hands: Sexism and racism? There was a deal struck between Israel and the UAE? Good for Netanyahu and Trump or not? Oh, and Congress, remember them? They hung desperate Americans out to try, unable to reach a deal between the parties, they took off for their August recess.

KAMALA HARRIS

Kamala Harris, Covid-19, Kanye West, Election 2020, Congress, Joe Biden, Donald Trump, White House press corps, the Abraham Accord, Michael Cohen book.  It’s August and things are hot, hot, hot and getting hotter.

THE UNMASKING OF AMERICAN POLITICS

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

What if Jack Dorsey threw Donald Trump off Twitter? Would the world come to an end? What if Donald Trump wore a mask in public? Would he be the laughing stock of the world? What if ordinary American citizens stood on their balconies and shouted:  I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore? What if? What if? This week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show we take a look at a lot of what ifs, first in our weekly take on the political scene with Halli and her partner in politics, journalist and former White House correspondent, Matthew Cooper. And in our second half-hour, a conversation with former editor-in-chief of Salon and author of UNRIGGED, HOW AMERICANS ARE BATTLING BACK TO SAVE DEMOCRACY.

THE UNMASKING OF POLITICS

To date 102,197 Americans have succumbed to Covid-19. There are 1,747,781 million confirmed cases in the U.S., more than any other country per capita. All 50 states are at least partially reopened, even though at least 20 of them had recorded a clear upward trend of average new daily cases over the prior week, some hospitals already overwhelmed by the new cases. Forty-one million Americans are unemployed, which translates to the equivalent of 1 in 4 workers have now filed for benefits. And in case you didn’t hear it, Trump is in a battle royal with Twitter because Trump has his priorities in the right place. And that’s just where Halli and Matt begin. Tune in,

THE UNMASKING OF POLITICS

David Daley joins Halli in our second half-hour. Currently, a senior fellow for FairVote. David Daley is the author of RATF**KED: THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE SECRET PLAN TO STEAL AMERICA’S DEMOCRACY, the book which helped spark the recent drive to reform gerrymandering, the scourge of this Republic. Daley, a frequent lecturer and media source is the former editor-in-chief of Salon.com. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, The Washington Post, The Guardian, New York magazine, the Atlantic, the Boston Globe, Rolling Stone. He’s made frequent appearances on CNN and NPR. Oh, and here’s a bit of trivia for you. When writing for the Hartford Courant, he helped identify Mark Felt as the “Deep Throat” source for Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. His new book, UNRIGGED: HOW AMERICANS ARE BATTLING BACK TO SAVE DEMOCRACY, offers a much-needed look into the inspirational citizen activists who are taking the bull by the horn and fighting back to unrig America’s fragile Democracy. Tune in and be inspired. We can all use a little inspiration these days.

Twitter, Jack Dorsey and Donald Trump. Who is that masked man, Joe Biden? Who will save America? Covid-19, gerrymandering, Vote-by-mail, Republican shenanigans, Florida, Florida, Florida and here we go.
