Today, Dom started the show talking about the firing of New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo. Pantaleo was the officer that used a 'forbidden choke hold' to subdue Eric Garner, leading to his death. Many democrats have virtue signaled from the debate stage that this officer must go. Yesterday, Bernie Sanders said officers like Pantaleo should go on a registry to make sure he never works as an officer again. Those on the left believe the Garner death is because of a racist system. Dom disagrees.

Then, Dom had some fun with clips and stories. First, the mayor of Middle Township, NJ, Tim Donohue, published an opinion piece for Save NJ that satirizes the left’s rhetoric that all Republicans are white supremacists with white privilege. Donohue wrote, “I imagine I’ll be held up in traffic by the daily KKK marches and torch-lit Skinhead Rallies. I have never seen one yet, but I’m sure that is my own biases and bigotry blinding me to the heartbreaking oppression I bring upon others.” The Cape May NAACP is now going after Donohue. Then, Dom plays back a clip in which Jill Biden defended her husband’s bid for president saying, “you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election. And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.” Dom uses this as a jumping off point to talk about the Democratic candidates, and discusses how he believes Elizabeth Warren will be the nominee for the Democratic party and reveals how he thinks she would do in a general election. Dom also talks about California’s poop patrols, explaining that the cities which have people cleaning human excrement have a long history of being democratically run.

Finally, Dom makes his argument again against safe injection sites, continuing the conversation he had with listeners yesterday, this time honing in on Republican politicians in Harrisburg who seem to be doing nothing about it.
