The Mincing Rascals are John Williams and Steve Bertrand of WGN Radio, and Eric Zorn and Scott Stantis of the Chicago Tribune. They start by discussing the significance of the hand gesture one Cubs fan gave in the middle of an NBC Sports report. Then, the Rascals go on to debate whether or not the United States is undergoing a constitutional crisis. Meanwhile, they go on to talk about our “economic sugar high” in the time of President Trump. And, in Illinois, the Rascals weigh in on college sports betting and the legalization of marijuana. Finally, the Mincing Rascals discuss two reporters’ gaffes that led to their terminations.
