The Nightly Rant Episode 182 Show Notes
Mike opens the show talking about Torya's new favorite word — loon bag. It literally means “bag of loons”, but that isn't how Torya views it. She sees it as a bag of lunatics.
Torya says that the Urban Dictionary definition of the word is wrong and tells people to look up the definition of “Michael” in the Urban Dictionary.
Mike speaks about Tomi Lahren and why she is so popular. She isn't afraid to say what's on her mind. He says that's why America elected Donald Trump. They thought they were getting a straight shooter and instead they got a bumbling idiot. America didn't know enough about him before they elected the guy.
Mike says Trump is not as smart as he thinks he is. Torya says Trump is not as eloquent as he thinks it is. Mike says Tomi is better at age 26 than Trump is. She just says what is on her mind. Nothing has ever been handed to her.
Mike says we need more intelligent people who are willing to say what's on their mind. He says Tomi's approach in the hands of a President would be unstoppable. Torya says she hasn't given it any thought.
Mike gives examples of why he believes a blunt President would be very effective.
Mike points out that nobody can be direct without people being offended. Torya says people seem to always be offended.
Mike says with Trump, people get offended by every single thing he says or does.
Mike transitions to a discussion about Buena Park District 1 City Council election. One of the candidates, Sunny Park, was caught stealing signs. Her supporters call people racist if they say Sunny Park is a thief, but she was caught stealing!
