We've made it to our second July 4th with Trump as "president." But we still only have one July 4th show during that time. And guess what? This is it!

Remember when North Korea wasn't our newest bestie? Well, back then, North Korea launched another missile, but Donald Trump anger-tweeted them, so don’t worry about it.

In the meantime, we used the holiday quiet period (minus the threat of rogue nation nuclear missiles) to catch up on Jay Sekulow’s sekret sektarian skimming, s(k)pecifically that of his son Logan, a racket that netted him nearly a million bucks, and which began at the tender age of 18.

A Florida judge drew the line on the state’s then-newly expanded “Stand Your Ground” law. It may yet be erased, but it gave us another opportunity to discuss the inappropriate short-circuiting of long-established principles of law, because guns are cool and gun owners shouldn’t be bothered with the responsibility of abiding by the law, because they're so law-abiding and stuff.
