Gay sex art in the home of a religious right leader?

How’s that headline for a teaser?

In today’s podcast, Cliff Schecter I delve into a number of topics — primarily Obamacare repeal and Paul Manafort’s latest legal problems with the FBI — but we also touch on a number of other issues in the news, including the strange tale of a new bundt pan I purchased this weekend at an estate sale in DC that turned out to be the home of a top name in the religious right. Oh, it gets better.

Suffice it to say, in addition to a $4 cake mold, I walked away with a hearty laugh.

I’ve posted our podcast below, and here’s the rundown of topics, and where you can find them in this episode:

During his UN speech Trump calls North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un “rocket man” (0:00), the GOP prepares to repeal Obamacare (again) with the worst bill yet (4:19), John buys a bundt pan from a gay-sex loving family values conservative (6:55), Hillary trolls Donald Trump deliciously (13:20), Don Jr. and Kellyanne turn down Secret Service protection (16:42), Sean Spicer tries to cleanse his soul at the Emmys (20:13), the physics of pee (29:23), former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort in deeper water than ever (30:06), more on the GOP effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act (35:39), John offers some personal thoughts on his healthcare (51:00), Cliff provides some action steps on ACA repeal (54:30), Trump wants a military parade North-Korea style (58:25), and more about Seb Gorka’s penis (1:00:56).

    Amazing story, John. I feel bad for the widower, but won’t shed a tear for Lee LaHate. He chose to work as the chief financial officer for one of the most awful anti-LGBT hate organizations in the country. The fact that he was gay just makes it worse– he obviously chose money over his fellow members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Again, I feel for his husband, but I’m having trouble working up any sympathy for LL.
