Some fantastic and important guests today on what seem like a whole bunch of wars:
At 6:47 AM, my KHOW colleague Jon Caldara joins us to talk about his op-ed for the Denver Post explaining why conservatives should not cheer the decimation of the Denver Post by its current owners.
I agree with Jon that this is a very important story and that conservatives better be careful what they wish for. More: https://coloradopolitics.com/denver-post-editorializes-against-its-own-owners/
At 7:06 we'll talk with former US Army officer (and enlisted man), and accomplished author, Ralph Peters, about this weekend's chemical attack in Syria and what it means for the United States. On Sunday night, it was reported that an air strike hit a military airport in Syria though at the time of my writing this note it was not attributed to any force or nation yet.
At 8:47 we'll be joined by Dave Berg, former co-producer of the Tonight Show for 18 years, about the vicious war of words between Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity. Kimmel is trying to back it off a bit, but it remains to be seen how Hannity will react. Follow Dave on Twitter at @tonightshowdave
I don't think this is something that Kimmel should be proud of. And for the record, his job is to make us laugh. That's not Hannity's job, though I think Sean did make too much of Kimmel's comment about Melania
Just one example of several of how nasty this got on Twitter:
Don't worry - just keep tweeting - you'll get back on top! (or does Trump prefer you on bottom?) Either way, keep your chin up big fella..XO https://t.co/R4QJCoGYCL— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
Kimmel sorta apologized:
Hannity is keeping people waiting until Monday night to get his reaction. I think he should invite Kimmel on to his show.
Just had this pop up. I am at a tournament with my daughter. I’ll have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow on Hannity. 9 EST FOX. pic.twitter.com/JLdZDa07BI— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 8, 2018
Bill Maher's panel is horrific. If the victim were anyone other than Laura Ingraham, they would be appalled by what's going on:
Congratulations to the Colorado Avalanche for going from being one of the worst teams in the history of the NHL last year to making the playoffs for the first time since 2014! They'll be going up against Nashville, the best team in the Western Conference, but with this young Avs team anything seems possible!
