The Mincing Rascals 06.01.18: Presidential pardons, Roseanne Barr, Memorial Day shuttles to the South Side, Kim Kardashian
The Mincing Rascals are John Williams and Steve Bertrand of WGN Radio, and Eric Zorn, Kristen McQueary and Scott Stantis of the Chicago Tribune. They start off by addressing President Trump’s tweets announcing his pardoning of Dinesh D’Souza and consideration for the commutation of Former Governor Rod Blagojevich. They go on to evaluate the cancellation of “Roseanne,” a decision by ABC President Channing Dungey. Plus, the Rascals rate the decision of the Chicago Police Department to redirect African American kids to the south side on Memorial Day. And, the New York Post curates a not so punny cover.
Scott recommends that you try a vow of silence, much like they do on his Jesuit retreats.
Eric recommends that you listen to episode two of season three “Revisionist History,” a Malcolm Gladwell podcast.
John recommends that you ring in Summer with a tequila cocktail.
