What was the purpose of Donald Trump’s visit to Ireland? As Marion touches down in Dublin after her holiday, she puts forward her perspective on why Trump was visiting during the beginning of his civil rape trial in New York. Is Trump afraid to face E Jean Carroll as Joe Tacopina uses his thuggish methods to take on the trial.
The most damning evidence against Trump in the trial being used is the infamous ‘Grab ‘em by the pussy’ Access Hollywood tapes. Marion gives a run down on what’s been said so far in the trial.
Tucker Carlson is out of a job at Fox News after alleged racist text messages he sent. Was it the straw that broke the camels back or was Carlson on his way out when he said January 6th rioters were peaceful tourists? Where does Carlson go from here? Marion gives her views on potential networks that may take him on for less cash that are to the right of Fox News.
Was there an assassination attempt against Vladimir Putin this week? Marion doesn’t think so. Russia claimed that Ukraine launched a drone strike over the Kremlin on Wednesday. Marion gives her views on what bleak motivation Russia may have for making the claim as she discusses how Ukraine is fading from the news agenda.
What is the value of the Met Gala in times of economic crisis? We debate whether the parade of exuberant wealth and excess is necessary after the inaugural event celebrated the life’s work of Karl Lagerfeld on Monday. And while stars were making their way down the red carpet screen writers were preparing to strike for their rights in LA.
Does Joe Biden have a writer’s room himself? After the White House Correspondents dinner it certainly looks that way. I look at the best jokes from Biden’s set as he and Marion discuss dinner’s of the past. With jokes about Tucker Carlson’s sacking and his age on the table, sleepy Joe has a few tricks up his sleeve.
