We start this week’s radio program right off the bat by prognosticating the possibility that God might be some nerd from a completely different space-time continuum who is completely unaware of our very existence.

Next, we point out the fact that the Rump has now obviously been thoroughly schooled (possibly provided with a reminder of John F. Kennedy’s fate) and that our rebel president is now playing ball — meaning that we can count on more business-as-usual.

That, of course, is exactly the problem.

Then, we contemplate the irony of the fact that governments were originally formed to protect us from mother stabbers and father rapers rather than acting as their hired hit men.

Next, the Toothless Old Grandpa makes an appearance and he reveals how the Rump managed to trick Rachel Maddow — of all people — into disseminating some pro-Rump propaganda for him! (Whoever came up with that one probably received a hefty bonus…)

Then — for the feature Thunderbolt this week — we strongly suggest when it comes to heinous war crimes that you should never assume anything. We would instead highly recommend that you ask this simple question: Who benefits?

Conspiracy theories (n): When people dare to speak unspeakable truths.

Cover the children’s ears (or not). It’s time for a few Thunderbolts!
