    On today’s show: Donald Trump said of SF QB Colin Kaepernick – “maybe he should find a country that works better for him, let him try, it’s not gonna happen.” Above that story at FoxNews.com is this headline: “Love It Or Leave It: Trump tells Kaepernick to find a country that works better for him.” We hear this often – if you don’t like America – leave the country! Is there a difference between “hating” America and “protesting” America? Should protesters be seen as haters? Haven’t some protests led to positive change in America? If all those who want to protest America left – who would be here to change it? THEN: David Duke sent out a robocall that backs Trump for president as he promotes his run for the Senate in LA. Trump has rejected David Duke’s endorsement. Is it fair to judge a candidate by those who give their endorsement? AND: CNN left out the word “crooked” when showing a tweet from Trump. In Trump’s tweet, he called her “Crooked Hillary,” but CNN reported the tweet as saying just “Hillary.” Was CNN protecting Hillary even though it was Trump who used the word to describe her? Is this an example of media bias? PLUS: Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who lost his position over sexting photos of himself, has done it again! This time his wife, Huma Abedin, says she’s leaving him. Abedin is a top aide to Hillary Clinton. Is this fair fodder for the campaign?

Is this fair fodder for the campaign? 2pm poll- Should Anthony Weiner’s repeated behavior of sexting lewd pictures of himself to women shed any negative light on Hillary Clinton’s campaign, since Weiner’s wife is a top Clinton aide? ALSO: A report shows that it will cost $3.6 billion to repair the streets of New Orleans to the point where they are in “fair” condition. How bad are the streets for our cars and trucks? 3

    Are you better or worse off since hurricane Katrina? How did the worst disaster in the history of America impact you, your loved ones or your business? (Some 1,800 people died; the cost—over 100 BILLION dollars...and recovery is still happening 111 years later.) Are you and your family fully recovered, or still struggling to do so? If you went through it – what’s your most vivid memory...what’s been the hardest part...and what’s the biggest lesson learned? If you didn’t, what do you want to know or worry about most? PLUS - Trump & Clinton’s heated battle for minorities and undecided voters continues. Who is better position-ed to win over either? ALSO: Your take on Colin Kaepernick’s decision NOT to stand during the national anthem. Do you support his decision as “freedom of speech” or do you think it’s an insult worthy of a fine or punishment of some sort? Is what Kaepernick did UN-american or very American, standing (or sitting) for what you believe in?
