    There was a lot of Trump trashing at the Democratic convention last night in Philadelphia. Vice Presidential Nominee Tim Kaine gave an inspiring speech that was his first mass appeal introduction to America and President Obama gave a speech that was a rally cry for Hillary and the Democrats. What’s your reaction to their speeches? AND: Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained by Hillary is trailing Trump among white males. Pelosi said in an interview on PBS that “many times white – non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose.” Pelosi went on to say that the support from that group of white males is changing because of Hillary Clinton’s “economic agenda to create jobs, good-paying jobs, increasing paychecks.” Do you agree? If you’re a white, non-college-educated male – do you always vote Republican?

    Were American flags banned at the Democratic convention? Is social media poisoning America? Scoot got a text from a listener who wanted his opinion on the Democratic Party banning American flags from their convention. When I got off the air yesterday – I did some research and found out that a few right-wing websites were reporting that the Democrats had banned the American flag from the convention because it was offensive to too many Democrats. And the websites offered visual evidence of the absence of American flags at the Democrats’ convention. But the “so-called evidence” was totally false and presented an unfair depiction of the two conventions. Have you fallen for something that was sent to you that wasn’t true but only sent to promote a biased view? What was it? What did someone send you? Do you see more vile, disturbing things on social media or more positive, enlightening or fun stuff? And, which is more concerning – Facebook or Twitter? How do we change social media being used to poison America?

    Last night at the Democratic convention – former President and husband of the Democratic nominee Bill Clinton spoke to the delegates and the nation. He talked about the love and respect he has for Hillary. The speech seemed to be an attempt to humanize Hillary. Bill Clinton has always been known as a charismatic speaker. What do you want to say about Bill Clinton’s speech last night? Did he make a strong case for Hillary? Did he soften her image? Did Bill humanize her? Did he prove she’s an agent for change? And, Did the 9-11 speakers impact you? Should Bill have more directly addressed his infidelity? Do you think Hillary really forgave Bill? Or, is there marriage a marriage of convenience that they both benefit from politically? PLUS: Armed robbery at the Lamplighter Lounge on Veterans in Metairie has many people shaken today. A Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Deputy shot and killed a suspect who pulled a gun on the deputy. Three banks have been robbed in the New Orleans area in 5 days. One robber got away on a bicycle.
