4.1.16 – Trump’s April Fools Dip-Fecary, Heritage Foundation’s James Sherk, and Dan Chambers

I’m not clever or creative enough to set up an effective April Fools Day joke or prank. So I began the show with some discussion of Donald Trump. Which has been an ongoing joke/prank for months and months.

Listen to the entire show here:

Today’s HausGuest was James Sherk, a labor economics fellow at the Heritage Foundation. James is a full-on brainiac and was a GREAT guest.

We first talked about the absurdity of a $15 minimum wage and the massive unintended consequences that will result from it (as my home state will soon be finding out).

We then talked about his most recent article:Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 9.55.43 AM

The Chicago teacher’s union strike perfectly illustrates a variety of what ills education: lack of focus on education, public unions, insider dealing, runaway spending, lack of accountability, and more.

Next up was our regular bi-monthly “Ask the Counselor” with Dan Chambers.

Dan and I discussed the various Supreme Court cases right now (Obamacare birth control, abortion, Obama’s executive amnesty) and the problems confronting the court due to Scalia’s absence.

Other topics:

  1. “The Guardian” pulled an April Fools Day joke:Screen Shot 2016-04-01 at 10.25.54 AM
  2. Trump hilariously and embarassingly explained that his abortion flip-flop was due to (1) a convoluted question and (2) selective MSNBC editing. MSNBC responded by asserting that they played the entire interview WITHOUT edits.
  3. He also backtracked on his GOP pledge, putting into play ALL of his South Carolina delegates. LOL.
  4. This week’s “The People VS OJ Simpson” had Mark Fuhrman taking the 5th Amendment to avoid self-incrimination
  5. This week’s “The Americans” episode review
  6. Archer” Season 7 just started!
