7/15 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter and Isabel Gillies on the France Truck Attack and Our Anxious Times

July 15, 2016

Cliff returns from vacation in Europe. His family Star Wars experience in the UK. The truck attack in Nice, France: how much of a jihadist was the attacker was? Trump’s Vice Presidential marathon extravaganza, and why choosing Mike Pence may force him into some uncomfortable policy conversations on trade and social issues.

Isabel Gillies then joins us to discuss the climate of fear now, and how now compares to previous times of unrest. Hillary Clinton as misogyny magnet. Isabel’s new game-changing transcendental meditation habit. Isabel recommends “The Chef’s Table,” on Netflix.

On the fun half – The Trump/Pence logo’s not-so-subliminal sexual message. Newt Gingrich reaches a new low angling to be Trump’s VP. Trump continues marginalizing Chris Christie. Glenn Beck has a gay bull on his ranch. Christian broadcaster Rick Wiles is concerned PokemonGo’s cyber-demons are going to church. Why do journalists focus on national polls? Plus your calls an IMs.
