Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Later tonight, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will meet for the first in a series of debates between the two Presidential candidates, but as has been evident throughout this whole campaign it is widely assumed that Donald Trump’s performance will be judged by a much different standard then Sec. Clinton’s.  Joining me today to talk all about the how the debate bar is so low for Donald Trump tonight is Amanda Terkel is a Senior Political Reporter and Politics Managing Editor at The Huffington Post.

On Friday, Politico reported that Donald Trump’s team was building a 'psychological profile' of Sec. Hilary Clinton in preparation for tonight’s debate and that the GOP nominee and his team are taking a more sophisticated approach to debate preparation than previously known.   Joining me today to talk all about tonight’s debate and how the Clinton campaign plans to hit back against Trump is Congressman Seth Moulton who represents the 6th district of Massachusetts and is a surrogate for the Clinton Campaign.

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

In this current election cycle the difference between the two major candidates for President couldn’t be greater.  On the one hand we have Donald Trump who has offered no plan on how he will ‘make America great again’, while other hand we have an experienced politician and leader who has offered countless policy papers and proposals to explain how she plans to get things done.  Joining me today to talk all about Hillary Clinton’s policy agenda and why it’s time to get excited about the possibility of her winning the election in November is Jonathan Cohn, Senior National Correspondent for The Huffington Post.


This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Donald Trump calling for a nationwide stop-and-frisk policy and the use of racial profiling in law enforcement, not to mention the revelation made in The Washington Post about how he uses the Trump ‘Foundation’ as a personal slush fund.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.

According to a blockbuster report by The Washington Post’s David A. Fahrenthold, Donald Trump spent more than a quarter-million dollars from his charitable foundation to settle lawsuits that involved his for-profit businesses. Those cases, which together used $258,000 from Trump’s charity, may have violated laws against “self-dealing” — which prohibit nonprofit leaders from using charity money to benefit themselves or their businesses.  Joining me today to talk all about mounting evidence that Trump illegally used his ‘foundation’ as a slush fund is David A. Fahrenthold who broke the story.

As diplomats from around the world are gathering in New York this week for United Nations meetings, one of the items on their agenda is combating climate change, and serving as an urgent motivator for these talks is the possibility that a climate science denier could soon become America’s president.  Donald Trump, has called climate change a “hoax” and said that as president he would “cancel” the UN’s new climate pact, the Paris agreement, which was finalized last December, but could he actually do this and what would be the ramifications of this?  Joining me today to talk all about how he could possible do this and what the ramifications of that would be is John Upton who is a Senior Science Writer at Climate Central.

Yesterday, Democratic members on the House Judiciary Committee urged Attorney General Loretta Lynch to open an investigation into the alleged donations made by Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.  Joining me today to talk about this inquiry into wrongdoing by Trump and Bondi is Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), one of the members of the House Judiciary Committee.

Earlier this week, the NCAA announced it would move all its championship games from North Carolina over their discriminatory HB2 law, or what some have come to call the "bathroom law" and it was announced today that the ACC would "move neutral site championships for this academic year".  This comes as a blow to Gov. Pat McCrory who is currently in a re-election campaign for Governor and is trailing his opponent in the polls.  What does this mean for North Carolina moving forward?  Chris Sgro, Executive Director with Equality North Carolina, joins us today to discuss.
