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:
