John’s monologue this time is about all the latest news including: Gavin Newsom appointing Dianne Feinstein’s seat to a Black lesbian, the attempt by Matt Gaetz to oust House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, and Donald Trump back in court in New York – this time on trial in a $250 million dollar lawsuit that should alter his personal fortune and real estate empire. Then, he interviews journalist Bob Hennelly on current politics: the near shutdown of the government; the Bob Menendez bribery scandal; and the attempt to vacate Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House. Next he welcomes back comedian Rhonda Hansome. They talk about the Trump trials and take calls from Bill in New Jersey, Charles in Miami, Mark in Portland, Stephen in Kentucky, Mitch from Kent State, Lisa in New Mexico, and Sean in California.
