We love callers on the Q. They are what really makes our show special. But sometimes the callers are special themselves. On this episode, we focus on the need for someone to put Trump in a checks and balances type situation. His entire team is going off the rails and making weird and dumb claims that are hurting his brand and Presidency.
First up, we discuss Kellyanne Conway and her need to create fake and false massacre's to fodder the Muslim Ban that trump enacted. Kellyanne went on another political show on TV and stated that because of the "Bowling Green Massacre", that's why the ban is needed. Only problem is that It never happened and she completely made it up again. Another Alternative Fact.
Then the guys take some callers and they decide to go in blind and see what the fans of the show are thinking. May have been the wrong idea. The callers definitely were the star of this show, so saddle up and take a listen....prepare to be entertained.

Matt Krueger is back and what a show to return for! The President Donald Trump has had a busy first week in office and at the end of it he decided to Ban people from 7 specific Middle Eastern countries that have terrorist ties. But the issue is that he left a few other countries that are also terror based off the list. Why? Well maybe he has economic ties to those countries, or maybe he doesn't feel they are a threat at all. Regardless, the hashtag #MuslimBan seems to be taking the entire world by storm as country after country denounces this US stance. People are taking over airports and we discuss whether this is all justified or not.
But first, Kayo Bracey joins the show to discuss hip hop and growing up in North Carolina over the past few years with all the confederate flag talk and now Trump becoming the president. He tells us a little about his upbringing as well as his influences coming from the home of hip hop legend Petey Pablo.
All this and much more on the Q!

Well He's the President now and with that starts the reign of Donald Trump. And right off the bat, Trump sent new White house Press Secretary Sean Spicer out to let the media know, "We don't like you!" All because the world showed pictures of the small turnout for the inauguration of Trump. Welp, that's kinda life and reality can be tough to swallow sometimes.
But it didn't stop there....The next day on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd pushed the issue of why Sean Spicer went out to everyone the previous day and lied about the pictures from a point of spite it seemed like. Kellyanne Conway decided to put the breaks on and stated that Spicer had uttered some "Alternative Facts" which is just another phrase for LYING.
So Mark and Jason along with Steph on the board, decided to delve in this week and discuss the Alternative facts. As well as an Alternative Universe we seem to be in now.

Oh Donald Trump, how you woo the subversive people into believing a single word that comes out of your mouth. And, with Mark being a moderate willing to give anyone a chance, Trump seems to just be doing everything he can to grab ire and anger towards his presidency.
On this episode, Alex Elias and Jason Kull, joined by Board op Stephan, come together with Mark to discuss the newest revelations. Including the continued need to lash out at NBC's Saturday Night Live for parodying him again.
But, the best is when political commentator Jonathan Harris (OAN, Young Turks, MSNBC) jumps on the line with Mark and the crew to discuss where this presidency is going and if there is any light at the end of the tunnel. A big discussion is the way Trump treated Jim Accosta from CNN this past week during Trump's surreal first press conference since winning the November election.
All this and some fun phone calls from the listeners and fans!
