While the media is obsessed with the president uttering the "N" word and the confederate flag, Congress is about to relinquish its responsibility to fully read, understand, debate and amend a major piece of legislation that could turn the world upside down! Nicole discusses this with Gaius Publius. GottaLaff joins in to talk about the issues they're using to take our attention off the Fast Track vote.

Nicole discusses what happens when you have the confederate flag combined with racism and guns... it happened in an African American church in Charleston, SC. Guests are media strategist Joel Silberman and the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Dan Gross.


 Nicole asks the question she's asked so many times in the past: What will it take to get our elected officials to do something about our gun epidemic? She talks about the elephant (and donkey) in the room with our resident Republican, John LeBoutillier, plus the Pope on climate change, Donald Trump for president, and more. Our Flashback Friday segment today is a video interview with Ben Folds recorded at LA's El Rey Theater in November of 1997.
