"480 Minutes" - The No Press Secretary

This week President Multiple Wives and Bankruptcies said he's "ultimately always right,"! 45 also claimed that the FBI director was wrong about the law, and attacked the government office that called out Kellyanne Conway for breaking the law and recommended her summary firing.  Using double-speak to say that the actions are a violation of her constitutional rights (they are not), the White House pushed back. To be clear, everyone including Ms. Alternative Facts herself has the guaranteed right to free speech..however there are restrictions when you are acting in your official capacity as a presidential advisor. There are specific laws about what government officials can and cannot say, laws which Conway has clearly broken. She has been called out for similar infractions in the past (like hawking Ivanka's wares) so her transparent claims of  ignorance are really just belligerence towards and disrespect for the law, the media, and every U.S citizen.

Also, No Press Secretary Sanders (there has not been an official press briefing in 3 months - a new record!) is leaving to spend more time being asked to leave restaurants with her family...and right on the brink of war! I wonder if that's on purpose. The question now becomes who is going to be the “acting” Press Secretary joining the “acting” heads of Defense, Interior, Homeland Security, OMB, SBA, FAA, OSHA, FDA, CPSC, EEOC, FEMA, ICE, Secret Service, plus Ambassador to the U.N and WH Chief of Staff? Is The Mooch available? How about "pardoned" Manafort? Frederick Douglass, perhaps? Oh, never mind, Stephen Miller and The Base would never stand for having an abolitionist on staff, even one who's been dead for 125 years.

Today's 480 Minutes show will feature new songs by Peter Perrett (London, England, @thepeterperrett), Plague Vendor (Whittier, CA, @plaguevendor), Stef Chura (Detroit, MI, @stefchura), and Ty Segall (Los Angeles, CA, @tysegall).

480 Minutes is live-hosted from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time and is followed by 2 hours of uninterrupted music. The show is *normally then rebroadcast in it's entirety beginning at 7 p.m., then again on Saturday at 5 a.m. and 3 p.m., and one final time on Sunday at 1 a.m., followed by a rebroadcast of this week's Fuzzy Road radio show at 11 a.m. and then a couple of old 480 Minutes episodes from this week in past years, making for hosted shows all weekend long.

Tune in! (, plus SomaFM channels are available on many set top boxes and home audio systems as well as virtual assistants by voice command).
