James read the novel, and was interested to see how the two compared. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is currently at the Ahmanson Theater in DTLA until September 10.
4) Dear Donald: Should Kathy Griffin Beg for Forgiveness
Kathy Griffin recently shared that after the infamous photo of her holding Trump’s bloody severed head, she received a letter from someone who claimed to be a CBS executive detailing what she should write in an apology letter to Trump. Hmmm…. This is the letter the “executive” thought Kathy should send to 45:
Dear Mr. President,
Please, I beg you to not stop reading. I have done a terrible thing. I was attempting to appeal to my audience, not thinking of the affect on you and your family. Not thinking how misguided I was. WhatI did was beyond being oblivious to humanity.
I am now being lectured by friends who have supported you, friends who I didn’t want to listen to in the past about you. Now with my world crumbling around me, I am listening for the first time about the great things you have done and are doing. How stupid I was to follow the lies from the “Left”. It took my terrible mistake to finally see the false news. I compounded the lies by creating the ugly, disgusting and horrendous, unspeakable thing, thinking it was funny at your expense or not thinking of the hurt I have caused you and your family, just to possibly get a laugh. How warped and misguided I was. My stupidity is overwhelming.
I do not deserve what I am asking of you. I am begging you to open your heart and forgive me. I have done a terrible thing and I have lost my career and my life. My career is over as I have lost the respect of my audience. I spent my entire life to get to whereverI was in standup comedy, only to lose it forever.
Your forgiveness is to allow me to live my life with my head held high, knowing that I am a good person and forever repenting for the hurt I have caused. Thank you sir for hearing meh [sic] plea.
3) The Alt-Right’s Tacky Tiki Torches
We discuss the terrorists in Charlottesville & their tacky Tiki torches. Those are for BBQs and pool parties not nazi pride marches, you idiots.
2) The Teen Choice Awards: Who the Hell Are These People?
We watched the Teen Choice Awards and couldn’t figure out who anybody was anymore! See if you fare any better, you can watch the show at teenchoice.com.
1) Blackout: The Eclipse on Monday
If you’re in Los Angeles, the eclipse will begin at 9:06AM reaching maximum eclipse-ness by 10:21. Make sure to wear your eclipse safety glasses, and check out this article from USA Today to see what time the eclipse will be in your neck of the woods.
RESISTOR(S) OF THE WEEK
This week we had two. First up was Jim Acosta from CNN for clapping back at 45 saying “Haven’t you spread a lot of fake news yourself, sir?”
Then Tom nominated Clay Aiken as our resistor, and James St. James had VERY STRONG FEELINGS about this. You’ve got to hear their back and forth! It was like Rosie and Elizabeth on The View all over again!
Listen in at 4:00PM EST and again at 4:00 PST (7 PM EST) on SiriusXM! Or listen whenever you want on the SiriusXM App!
And be sure to give your ears the gift of THE WOW REPORT on Radio Andy SiriusXM EVERY Friday.
Do something this weekend that makes YOU go WOW!!!
