Peter Ferrara continuously displays impolite behavior, leads with inappropriate accusations and works frantically to filibuster every discussion Thom attempts to have with him. This bombastic behavior combined with his lack of fact-based appraisal of reality makes listening to him . . . bad radio.

You confused a couple of names today. Peter Beinart is asking Rep Weiner to stay on, with which I agree. Larry Beinhart, who you, Thom, have made my hero, has shown that taxing the rich is only hope. Today, you were calling Peter Beinart the tax guy.

Trump is Broke: Has He Already Sold Out America To Get the Money He Needs?

Thom plus logo Back in the day, Donald Trump's niece alleges, he stole hundreds of millions of dollars from his father's estate, screwing his other family members and the IRS (you and me).

He then went on a massive spending binge, pouring that money into airlines, steaks, vodka, Trump-branded games, casinos, a fake university, etc. Virtually all of them failed, and he experienced multiple bankruptcies.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
