He’s also got a quick update on Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville’s latest efforts to weaken our military, the breaking news out of Ukraine, the domestic terror attack you may have missed, why the Little League World Series shows the best of the summer (and America, and his favorite album of the summer.
