The LangerCast is live from the DC premiere of the new documentary, A Billion Lives... a film about how vaping techology is shifting people away from tradtional smoking, has the potential to save millions upon millions of people, and how that industry is under siege from a variety of special interests!  We interview Tony Abboud from the Vapor Technology Association about the film, and about the latest assault from the FDA on vapor enthusiasts!  Michi Iliazi from the Taxpayers Protection Alliance joins Andrew and Jerry, and the three talk about what TPA is up to, discuss the California Primary, Trump's comments about the judge in the Trump University case, whether the Libertarian Party is interested in courting social conservatives, and touch on the latest Game of Thrones and Haley Atwell's comments about Captain America's romantic interests!

Andrew and Jerry break down the lunacy that is the #JusticeForHarambe movement, and the idiocy of the public outrage over the gorilla killing in Cincinnati this weekend.  Then they talk abject disappointment - disappointment in the possible proffering of David French as a Third Party candidate, disappointment in the Libertarian Convention, and disappointment with the choices this election season.  An in-depth discussion over the ethics of #NeverTrump - and who would be easier to oppose... Trump or Clinton.  And tales of snakes in the yard!

We try to have a Trump-less week.  We fail. Regulation is the order of the day, and then we launch into a discussion on what's legitimate to criticize about Trump, and just what isn't.  His attacks on others this week--and whether they distract from the Clinton news (which we dissect).  We talk Elizabeth Warren, and the differences between politicians who are narcissists versus those who are ideologues.  Then we talk prayers and praise, Memorial Day Plans, and classic rock!

Jerry's fed up, and Andrew's had an epiphany.  Is Donald Trump merely a rorschach test for America, holding a mirror up to America's voters?  Is there a third choice beyond #NeverTrump and #NeverHillary ? Tune in for a potential solution to this conundrum. The North Carolina bathroom fight is a mere proxy war in an overall push by the left--and the left's attacks on Captain America fit into this!  And the guys give thanks and congratulations to several LangerCast friends and listeners!

LangerCast Episode 94: Rush Is Wrong... About Trump
 
Andrew and Jerry dive right into the meat of the matter - Rush Limbaugh translates what Trump really means... and he's completely and utterly wrong.  We break down what happened in Wisconsin, and what this bodes for both Trump and Cruz.  Trump's plan to build a wall may be correct, but how he plans to pay for it is not only idiotic, but dangerous.  We set Trump's post-Wisconsin statement to fitting music, and underscore what the statement says about Trump himself.  Then we talk about the assault on speech, especially skeptical and dissenting speech, by 20 attorneys general.  Finally, we talk about our weekends, Batman v Superman, and give a fitting tribute to Thurman Munson at the start of this years baseball season.
