Jon Hansen fills in for John Williams. Jon kicks off the show with some improv with President Trump.

Plus, The Daily Line Editor and Reporter Heather Cherone chats with Jon about the goings-on of the state and the city. She weighs in on the most eligible mayoral candidates and makes a prediction for marijuana legalization.
