Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Bill Maher quipped Friday night that the US attack on Syria was code-named "Operation Desert Stormy," suggesting Donald Trump is attempting to force his legal and ethical nightmares off the front pages. It didn't work: on Sunday night, fired FBI Director James Comey described Trump as "morally unfit" for office on ABC News. On Monday, Sean Hannity of Fox "News" was revealed in federal court to be a secret client of Michael Cohen, Trump's hush money payoff "fixer." Meanwhile, last week's U.S. missile strike on Syria was billed as a response to an alleged chemical attack by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against his own people, but was done without the U.S. presenting any actual hard evidence of a chemical attack or who was responsible for it. Moreover, there is no legal authority whatsoever for Trump's attack -- either domestically or internationally -- despite various claims to the contrary. most of Congress, both Republicans and Democrats alike, failed to demand accountability. The unlawful US attack is believed to have cost some $200 million -- an amount that could have paid for the replacement of all of Flint, MI's lead water pipes some four times over, as new studies reveal that reading proficiency levels for third-graders in Flint has plummeted in the wake of the lead drinking water contamination crisis. Callers weigh in on all of the above, including one who notes that some poisoned children, like those in Syria, seem to be of larger concern for the Trump Administration than others, like those in Flint, no matter the evidence, or lack thereof...  Brad Friedman, Desi Doyen
