Today's hot topics on Hot Air at the Fair: Tax reform, trade, Manafort, media bias, and my favorite grill!

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:

  • Get ready for some grill talk from our show sponsor Solaire Infrared Grills*! Solaire president Rett Rasmussen joins us to talk about my favorite pastime over the last couple of years, and we’ll share a code or two to allow listeners to get a big jump start on owning the last grill they’ll ever need.
  • Rett and I will also talk some politics, particularly around the tax reform and trade policies of the Trump administration and how they’ve impacted his business. As a former Annapolis grad and Navy man, we’ll also get Rett’s thoughts on John McCain.
  • Andrew Malcolm joins us for Tuesdays with Andrew! The Prince of Twitter and I will discuss all of the hot political stories of the day.
  • We’ll also talk about the latest from the Manafort trial, more on the Catholic Church, Vice President Mike Pence’s upcoming visit to the Twin Cities, and much much 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!

Note: Solaire is sponsoring the show, but I receive no compensation for it or for my commentary on their grills. I just love the product.
