The Rundown - Monday, May 1, 2017 - Pres. Trump vs the media; I love fossil fuels; Fyre Festival's Fraudster; Jesse Watters' blunder

President Trump gave a speech to thousands of loyal supporters just as the White House Correspondents' annual dinner proceeded in DC without the president attending for the first time since 1981, and that was when Reagan was recovering from the assassination attempt.

It was a long night, but the highlight/lowlight was clearly the so-called comedy of Hasan Minhaj, a man who had no business doing what he was doing, but the left wanted to pander to those who think that if someone is millennial, dark-skinned, and Muslim, then he must be awesome. For the record, I have no problem with any of those things; it's just that I also don't see them as automatically making someone qualified for the job. Minhaj's remarks start around 52 minutes in.

6:36 AM Guest: Alex Epstein, founder and president of the Center for Industrial Progress and author of "The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels"

Sticking with a major recent topic on the show, we'll be joined by Alex Epstein who thought he had a debate scheduled against Al Gore, who canceled, then against Leonardo DiCaprio or at least one of his minions, but he also canceled, and how Alex is stuck debating former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter. When you hear Alex, you'll know why Ritter is going to lose.

And at 7:15, we'll talk with Duke University Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences, Avner Vengosh, the lead author of a new paper which discusses the lack of impact on groundwater of fracking in an energy-producing area of West Virginia.

I just loved that Denver's "climate march" this weekend had people had to deal with snow and freezing temperatures. It's incredible how often that seems to happen.

And finally, it's hard to feel terrible for the people who were sucked in to the Fyre Festival, the latest scam by a guy who keeps getting suckers to spend money on him.

Oy veh, another bit of stupidity at Fox, right when the spotlight is on them. I wonder if Jesse Watters will come back from vacation. My guess is yes (and my guess with O'Reilly was no), but we'll see...
