Today's hot topics on Hot Air at the Fair: Vacations from hell, Hurricane Lane, MN GOP, Maverick, and more

The Minnesota State Fair returns to the Fairgrounds, and so does Hot Air at the Fair! All this week, local Salem Radio affiliate AM 1280 The Patriot will have me on the air from 2-4 pm CT, talking both national and local politics. We also will simulcast the show through Facebook Live. (Please note: the microphones are muted during the commercial breaks.)

Today’s show at the Great Minnesota Get-Together features:

  • MN GOP chair Jennifer Carnahan talks to us about the upcoming election, and the preparation for a big GOP turnout. We’ll also discuss Jennifer’s observations about sexism in politics and the way forward from there
  • What’s it like to ride out a hurricane? I can (almost) tell you that from personal experience, having been part of a near-miss in Hawaii. I’ll tell you more about the vacation from hell, too.
  • We’ll celebrate the life of an American hero after John McCain’s death this weekend. What will be McCain’s legacy?
  • Plus, we’ll talk about the other big news today — the scandal in the Catholic Church, Donald Trump’s trade victory with Mexico, and more!

Call in to join us at 651-289-4488! Be sure to listen on The Patriot’s on-line stream if you’re outside the broadcast area. We’ll also stream Facebook Live to present the show from the booth (although with booth audio rather than network audio), and will embed each hour in this post. (If it’s muted, right-click the video and choose Unmute.) Join the fun!
