Yaron and Amy: “SQUIRREL! Trump Threatens Government Shutdown if Border Wall Isn’t Funded,” TODAY at 7 p.m. ET (4 p.m. PT)

Both Yaron and I can appreciate a good shutdown, in the right context. But today we see Trump in a very public showdown with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, not because he wants to hold the line on government spending and debt, but because he wants money to fund a YUGE infrastructure project, his wall, which is very popular with his base. I suspect that, in doing this, Trump is trying to distract us from more important issues, and so I suggest we focus on some of those in today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss with Yaron.

The show will be broadcast live via streaming video on Yaron’s YouTube Channel as well as on his show’s Facebook page here.

UPDATE: ICYMI, you can watch the full episode here:

And, as a teaser, find out what Yaron’s official position on Pineapple Pizza is here:

    Hi Amy… With due regard for belief systems, I think the border wall is an important national security issue. Walls, even penetrable walls, may still make good neighbors but more importantly, the government is rightly charged from protecting us from invasion or penetration by foreign or domestic dangers. Please explain to me why it is not a legitimate national defense issue. Thanks, Frank

    I thought the American spirit was dead. Maybe not …
