Russian Valentine

 

We’re one month in, everyone. Somehow, Pres. Trump managed an entire week without an Executive Order! However, we’ve had our first real scandal.

We cover Michael Flynn’s “resignation” (read: firing), Russia’s loving actions this past week, and follow some interesting tangents in between.

Featured in today’s podcast:

  • Pres Trump to Flynn: You’re Fired!
  • Vlad parks a boat a little close and launches a rocket
  • The Revolutionary has a bit of a moment
  • A Special Guest joins us!
