The Roaring 20s are busting out all across the United States. President Donald Trump gave his third State of the Union Address on February 4, 2020 and touted "The Great American Comeback." He touched on incredibly strong economic numbers, historically low unemployment rates, stronger international trade deals, and claims that America is once again respected around the world. Democrats sighed. Republicans cheered. Trump announced that he had promoted 100 year old Charles McGee, a former Tuskegee Airman, as America's latest general in the U.S. Air Force. He also asked Melania Trump to pin the Presidential Medal of Freedom on radio host Rush Limbaugh who was just diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

President Donald Trump rallied in Lexington's Rupp Arena on behalf of Governor Matt Bevin on the night before his re-election bid. Trump talked about Bevin's many achievements, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's successes in getting federal judges confirmed, Kentucky's overall progress, University of Kentucky basketball, and many random quips about various national Democrat stars.

Seven years ago, he taught me one of the most enlightening, compassionate lessons of my life at a moment when I was way out of my comfort zone. The day after he and I co-hosted a mostly improvisational show in front of an African American audience, I wrote this blog post. It was truly one of the greatest experiences of my life. ----------------- BACK IN BLACK I have always had an affinity for African American people. Their music always moved me more than the bland songs sung by white performers. Their distinctly different clothing choices made me want to be colorful like them instead of rigid and uniform
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell confirms that he is prepared to use the so-called nuclear option, changing traditional rules of the Senate to allow for a simple majority vote to confirm U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch. In a WHAS radio interview with me, McConnell noted that the longstanding tradition of requiring a supermajority of 60 aye votes was overrun in 2013 by then-majority leader Sen. Harry Reid.

Two blunt men, one show Now the question begs, will the heavy money people back Rand Paul for president?
Ready for a presidential race? The women of 2016 are firing broadsides now. While Hillary Clinton was speaking to Methodists in Louisville, Sarah Palin spoke to NRA convention delegates in Indianapolis on April 26, 2014 and she was armed with one-liners. The newsmaker was her declaration that if she were president "waterboarding is how we would baptize terrorists." Palin's critics pounced before she completed her remarks. Hillary Clinton's tame remarks in Louisville drew notice only because she had been virtually silent on personal religion identification since her presidential run in 2008.
