The Mincing Rascals has a guest star this week: WGN Radio’s Patti Vasquez. She joins John Williams and Steve Bertrand, and Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune. The group jumps into this episode with discussion of how realistic President Trump’s proposed tax plan is. They go on to agree on the impact of Trump’s daily tweets, calculated or not. The Rascals wonder why Representative Luis Gutierrez will not be running for Congress in 2018. A topic that’s been explored in great depth is again addressed today by the Mincing Rascals. That’s sexual assault – after Matt Lauer was abruptly fired from NBC – and the allegations against Senator Al Franken were reinforced today. Finally, here’s a cool, new idea from Mayor Rahm Emanuel.[audio http://serve.castfire.com/audio/3432435/3432435_2017-11-30-174935.64kmono.mp3?ad_params=zones%3DPreroll%7Cstation_id%3D4191.mp3]
