Max, alone in the studio yet again, except that is for the Max Miller Dog, wonders about the sanity of GOP rep Steve King, and whether an intervention is in order. Next Max gets to the decline in the stock market, the price of pork (of all things), the costs for working families of Trumps Tariffs, and the fact that China is not rolling over after all.
Max and Ginger jump into their weekly round up with Max first trying to understand what it is that John Cornyn actually means when he says there is nothing to be done about mass shootings.
Ginger attempts to keep Max on track by getting back to the topic of the day, in this case all the fraud phone calls people receive, the types of scams and what to do about by talking to scam expert Jim Browning, and no it does not include Donald Trump. Finally, Max finds out he is a minority of one in the studio when he discovers no one else has a land-line phone these days.
Max gets to midweek wondering about his sanity and if his brain will explode.
After the terrible shooting’s Max delves into the response from the GOP, in particular certain members of congress who find time to blame the problem on video games and gay marriage. Yup, that’s it, problem solved. Without Ginger to keep him in check, Max once again gets side tracked by tariffs, and the 737 Max.
Max gets to mid week by having fun with Mitch McConnell’s new nickname, Moscow Mitch which seems to have upset McConnell no end.
Then Max gets to his suggestion on how to needle the Donster and it includes Trump Tower, and gold. After Max get back to McConnell’s state of Kentucky and how badly it does compared to other states, which reminds Max that 9 of the 10 poorest states are, shock horror, run by Republicans. Max also goes through the list of items that the GOP has said they were going to do, and what they have succeeded at…. not a lot.
Max and Ginger make it to the weekend, and attempt to do a roundup of what has been happening over the past week including Mueller, Trump, and of course, the 737 Max, unfortunately Dan the Long Suffering Producer earns his nickname, as soon will become clear. The main subject for the show is Community College, something close to the Voice of the Radical Center’s heart. Their guest this week is Dr. Gretchen Riehl, from Austin Community College. Max enjoys the visit so much he gives the good Dr. the Converted Max Miller Mug.
Tucker Carlson and Max actually agree on something, and Max cannot wait to get to that topic, unfortunately he has to get back to the topic of insulin which makes him seem like a stuck record, but it is something close to the Maxsters heart.
In particular after the Wall Street Journal has two article on the subject back to back, and they contradict each other. Plus it seems that in addition to Max and Tucker potentially becoming BFFs, the New York Time also seems to agree with the Voice Of The Radical Center.
