First up is a new Late Night Phone Message from Melania.

Should Democrats Be So Sure They’ll Take Back Congress in ’18? Ep. 143

Jene updates us on his call with Running Wild With Bear Grylls, a reality show in the wilderness that, for some reason, Jene thinks Jerry should attempt.

Then, Jerry tells a story about how he actually once worked for Donald Trump, hosting the Miss Universe pageant and embarrassing himself on television.

Then, Jerry worries about how the Democrats are projecting much confidence about the 2018 elections. Democrats are optimistic they could take back both the House and the Senate. But are we seeing it with clear glasses?

Furthermore, Jerry wonders about the impact of Republican support of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, and how women voters might perceive those gestures, especially in the midst of the #MeToo movement. Protecting women should be a top priority in the elections this November.

How Did Trump Do In Year One? Ep. 142

Jene asks Jerry and Megan if either of them currently serves in government – because Jene has an update on his end.

Jerry talks about his typical fans. People who say hi to Jerry and ask for selfies always say “I don’t watch your show.” Except college kids who say they love it – and it crushes in waiting rooms at hospitals (and prisons).

Then Jerry examines Trump’s first year in office – how did he do as president and did he hold up to his promises?

Bootsy Collins Joins The Show! Ep. 141

We’re joined on this episode by legendary funk musician Bootsy Collins and his wife Patty, who is the head of the Bootsy Collins Foundation. Jerry, the panel and Bootsy discuss shared history and Bootys’s album “World Wide Funk.”

Later in the episode, we hear original music from Bootsy and Patty’s son Quiwey’s group FunkSquad. For more on Bootsy:

But before that, Megan and Jene beg Jerry to run for governor of Indiana, maybe Florida, possibly Illinois? No such luck.

Then Jerry takes a look back at 2017, a strange year for our country. He says Steve Bannon and takedown of the American government was largely successful – for now. He also notices that the Republican Party is unrecognizable, as Evangelicals justify Trump and fiscal conservatives justify a trillion dollar increase to the debt.

Music from Booty’s son Ouiwey Collins and his band FunkSquad, playing a new song titled “Together We Can.”

Can We Legally Get Rid Of Trump? Ep. 140

Jene says he got an email from Ask The Lifeguard and reads it. Jene pleads with Jerry to allow him to contact the NBC TV show “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” to pitch Jerry as a contestant. Jerry isn’t keen on appearing. Then Jerry wonders: Can we legally get rid

When Every Week Is Trump’s Worst Week Ever: Ep. 139

Jene and Megan ask Jerry, since he announced he is not running for Ohio governor last week, to consider a run for Kentucky Governor. No, then maybe as Kentucky senator? OK, is there a glimmer of hope that you could set up residence in Folk School’s basement and run for Ludlow city council?

Jene tells how he saw Mick Cronin Div. I coach for the University of Cincinnati call out for a fight on Xavier’s J.P. Macura, an opposing player at the end of a college basketball game.

Jerry’s rant: “This was Trump’s worst week ever!”…. Is what people say each week. Then he does something even worse the next week. How long can this keep happening?

Music this week from Matt Woods:

Sylvia Tyson Interview: Ep. 138

On today’s show, we have a live phone interview with Sylvia Tyson, of the iconic 60s folk duo Ian and Sylvia.

Then, Jerry dives in on the Republican tax bill and how screws the middle class. The middle class pays more in taxes and loses services they need. The white middle class in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio – who sent Trump to the White House – get killed by this. The Republicans are rewriting the tax code to appeal to one small group: wealthy Republican donors.

Musical Guest: Sylvia Tyson & Quartette
