Trump 101. Our retrospective on President Trump's first "100 Days" in office. We see a quietly impressive string of accomplishments and sense a more "optimistic" outlook in America. Change is in the air. As for the early setbacks, we review the increasingly authoritarian "Resistance" strategies of unelected judges, bureaucrats and media. Are these unaccountable sources of power showing undemocratic contempt for the American people? Meanwhile, Trump steers clear of the White House Correspondents' Dinner by holding a massive rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. To the crowd's chants of "CNN Sucks" we listen to Trump poke fun at the "Fake News" of the "Washington media" and "Hollywood actors." Also, we offer updates on the election in France between Nationalist Marine Le Pen and Globalist Emmanuel Macron. What to make of their clash at a Whirlpool factory? Vive La France? Plus, we remark upon Barack Obama's two $400k speaking fees, puzzle over Kim Jong Un's dwindling prospects for "saving face" in North Korea, and offer vignettes on Spring Snow and Skiing in the Denver Metro area. With Listener Calls & Music via Counting Crows, The Beatles, the Chainsmokers, Michel Delpech, Saint Etienne and Autour De Lucie.
