Donald Trump

(Episode 228) #TSRP “I Did Because They Did”

On episode 228 of #TSRP Spann is back after taking the week off to watch election results. And boy oh boy did it get popping in this last week. We start out the show with some of Listener Feedback, and then we go into Spann’s Random Thoughts, as Spirit Airlines found themselves on Spann’s shit list, friend of the show, Correy Boyd-Bell is seeing her comedy star rising as she’s being featured on TruTv’s Laff Tracks show with Cipher Sounds, and will be opening up for Monique in Chicago this coming weekend. Spann checked out her set while she was here in Detroit, and her set is definitely worth the price of admission. And because the elections were last week, Spann talks about his experience leading up to election night. Friends that are no longer, and the problems that apathy has on the communities that can least afford to be apathetic. We’re then off into Sexy Time, as a woman claims to be in an exclusive relationship with a ghost, says he’s proposed, and she’s trying to have his baby! Yeah, you read that right, I felt stupid just typing it, but we’re going to see what’s up with that. Then we go In The News, as former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, limited the use of consent decrees by the Justice Department, on his way out of the door. A court has ruled that Obama era student loan regulations must take effect after Betsy DeVos and her Dept. of Education administration have been dragging their feet on the enforcement of those regulations. Michigan legalized the recreational use of marijuana in the state, but what really happens now? And the original founders of “Blexit” have threatened Candace Owens with legal action over her use of the name, and the selling of merchandise using the name as well. Then the craziness of Blue Blazes comes along with a Strip Club closed down after they were found accepting food stamps for lap dances and drug sales. A study has found that men spend up to 7 hours a year in the bathroom just trying to get peace and quiet. And a teacher gets into a fight with student, and folks have raised almost $150K for him on GoFundMe. The craziness doesn’t stop in Proud To Be An American, as Dennis Hof, the pimp best known for his Bunny Ranch in Nevada was just elected to the Nevada state legislature. The rub is, he’s dead. And a white student enrolled at an HBCU actually “wishes she could take credit…” for the pipe bombs that were sent to the Obamas, and other vocal critics of Donald Trump. We’ve got all of that, plus of course, or AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. It’s been two weeks y’all, and we’ve got a lot to discuss, so lets get right to the Real Talk, All The Time here on The Spann Report!

(Episode 225) #TSRP “He Had Me At Larry Hoover”

On episode 225 of #TSRP we kick off the show with some listener feedback, and then we head right In The News, as a grisly discovery was made in a Detroit area funeral home. And a verdict was made in the case of Jeffery Ziegler, the Rochester Hills man who fired his rifle at a young black boy who knocked on his door asking for directions. And a Federal judge has thrown out a defamation lawsuit by Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump. We move on really quickly to Sexy Time, as a woman has taken a whole new meaning to merging sex and food, like LITERALLY. Then it’s off to Blue Blazes where a South Carolina man shoots his cousin over eating his potato chips. A man is run over by a lawnmower while he attempts to kill his son with a chainsaw. Yes, you read that right. And Bill Cosby just might have had Cheaper To Keep Her playing in his head when it’s found out that Camille Cosby drained one of his “secret” accounts to cover expenses at home. And in Proud to Be An American, a white woman calls the police on a black man babysitting two white children. An Arkansas sheriff forces inmates to wear Nike T-Shirts to “mock” Colin Kaepernick.

(Episode 218) “Praying For A No Hitter”

On episode 218 of #TSRP Spann opens up with a few Random Thoughts, but we’ve got soooo much news to cover. Arizona Senator John McCain has died after fighting off brain cancer for more than a year. The press has been making a big to do about his heroism in death, and even some Democrats have gone out of their way to lay down plaudits of good will towards the man. But were his policy positions and how he wielded power that something to celebrate? 1 in 3 Americans have less than $5000 saved for retirement, but we’ve got a great economy right? Right? Betsy Devos is currently contemplating allowing school districts across the country to use federal funds to buy guns. Not books. Guns… House Representative from California has been caught with his hand in the campaign cookie jar to the tune of $250,000! But it’s not this that’s going to make you scratch your head, this story gets stranger. Aretha Franklin’s dies without a will, leaving the condition of her estate in question, or does it? And Georgia election officials have rejected a proposal to close polling places in a majority black county. Then it’s off to Blue Blazes, as the mother from Philly, who spent over $25,000 on her son’s prom sendoff has been indicted on Social Security fraud. A homeless vet, who gave a stranded woman his last $20 so she could get gas, now can’t get the money that was raised for him by that woman and her partner, because they refuse to give it to him. And a gym teacher drags a 14 year old girl into a swimming pool, after she refused to do so because she didn’t want to ruin her hair. And in Proud To Be An American, multiple women of color have been rejected for jobs from one company in particular because of their “ghetto” names. And Donald Chump makes fools of Black Pastors again, as he pulls his support for a prison reform bill that they met with him about specifically. It’s a lot yall, but we got this. And of course, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week Announcements, so lets get right into the Real Talk, All The Time right here on The Spann Report!

(Episode 217) “It’s Been A Long Time”

On episode 217 of #TSRP Spann is back after a much needed break, and getting his podcast chakras in order. We start the show with Spann reflecting a little bit about his time away from the mic, and some of the things he learned about himself while he was away, but then we get right into the silliness as Spann has a few Random Thoughts to get off of his mind. We hop In The News and reflect a bit on the life of The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, and what she meant not only to music, but to the city of Detroit, and a crazy revelation in how Spann found out about how the Queen of Soul, got that name. Voter suppression is rearing it’s ugly head again, this time in Georgia, as Republicans in the state seek to shut down as many as nine polling places in a majority black county leading up to the mid term elections this coming November. And Donald Trump finds himself surrounded by convicted felons as his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort was just found guilty of 8 counts of fraud. Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen has also decided to flip and plead guilty to the Feds for 8 counts campaign finance violations, and says he did so at the direction of Donald Trump. 8 obviously isn’t Trump’s lucky number. Then it’s on to Blue Blazes, as apparently you can get your Viagra fix on Detroit without a prescription, and you’ll never guess where you can get it. R. Kelly is being sued by property managers in the Atlanta area for destroying two rental properties to the tune of over $200,000 worth of damage. And Bill Cosby thinks that having to register as a sex offender will “damage his reputation.” It’s too late for that one there buddy. And in Proud To Be An American, Alex Jones has been banned of most of the more popular social media websites. Is this an infringement on his free speech, or is this something that all of these platforms waiting far too long to do? In Clearwater FL, Michael Drejka, the man who invoked a “Stand Your Ground” defense after shooting a man in the chest over an argument over a parking spot was finally arrested and charged in the murder of Markeis McGlockton. Will this be a replay of what happened with Trayvon Martin, or will the video of the actual killing make a difference in this case? And as promised back when she was fired from her White House post, Omarosa Manigault-Newman is out peddling her new book about what she witnessed in the White House while working there. And in her press run, many people are contemplating whether or not black people will accept her back into the community after her dogged support of Donald Trump, will we? And of course, before we close the show, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. It’s been a long time indeed, and we got a lot to get into, but it’s good to be back and we’re doing it. So get posted up and enjoy the show this week on The Spann Report!

(Episode 216) “Just A Little Russian Meddling Is All”

On episode 216 of #TSRP we hop right into the craziness of the week and kick off the show with Blue Blazes. We update the story of the gas pump thieves in Detroit. A man finds out that his wife was cheating on him in the most tragic of ways, and there’s an armless man out here in the streets stabbing folks! We then hop In The News, as the world reacts to the Trump/Putin Summit, it becomes ever more clear how much racism has driven this country even from it’s own stated principles. The US Army is discharging immigrant soldiers that they previously promised citizenship to for fighting on this country’s behalf. And Democratic lawmakers are seeking to ban the current legal defense of “Gay & Trans Panic” to better prosecute cases where a Gay or Trans person was killed because of their sexual and gender identity. And in Proud To Be An American, a Trump supporter calls into a C-SPAN show to thank the Russians for interfering in the 2016 Presidential election. On Capitol Hill, interns who are wearing MAGA hats are being refused service by Uber drivers, and in yet another case of white fragility, a white CVS employee calls the police on black customers because he suspected that they were using a fake coupon. We then get to the listener feedback we’ve gotten over the course of the week from YouTube, email, and iTunes reviews. And of course we close the show out with our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So lots to get into, so lets get right into it right now here on The Spann Report!

(Episode 215) “This Is Fine”

On episode 215 of #TSRP Spann opens the show with some random thoughts about local newscast, and then we hop right In The News as scammers preyed on the poor and had many of them assemble in downtown Detroit under the guise that the city was about to give them all a home. Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on 3 felony sexual assault charges as fallout from his scandal continues, and Chris Brown gets arrested AGAIN! men in Detroit somehow hacked a gas pump and were able to steal over 600 gallons of gas from a local gas station. Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as a new game show comes out with the twist that the winners will have their student loans paid off. Witnesses who’s testimony put rapper C-Murder in jail for life have now recanted on their stories. And men in Detroit somehow hacked a gas pump and got away with over 600 gallons of gas over the course of a day. And in Sexy Time, we ponder how much people are willing to pay to have an amazing sex life. Is $100K a year too much? You decide. And in Proud To Be An American, Detroit students found out the that sometimes this country doesn’t always live up to it’s promise as a court has decided that they do NOT have a right to literacy. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT! THEY DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO LITERACY per the judges ruling. Speaking of judges, Donald Chump gets to make another Supreme Court Justice pick, and let’s just say, Donald Chump is definitely trying to cover his ass. Also, as Spann has been seeking to have more of a presence on YouTube with clips of the show, one of The Spann Report videos were linked with bunch of conservative black folks who were talking about #WalkAway a supposed movement of black voters and a few others moving away from the Democratic Party after they claim “the left has lost it’s mind with it’s lack of civility, and intolerance.” But is this movement real? We’ll discuss all of that and of course, we have our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements, PLUS, Listener feedback! We got lots to get into, so let’s get right on to it this week on The Spann Report!

(Episode 212) “They Don’t Care About Me Bro!”

On episode 212 of #TSRP Spann celebrated Father’s Day and a birthday all in one weekend, and we’ll talk about whether or not the social media frenzy around who gets to celebrate Father’s Day and how has finally died down, or has Spann just chosen not to dwell on it anymore. (Could be a little bit of both.) And since it was a Spann birthday, we’ll reminisce on the year that was. A little bit anyway. We get off of that and head right into The News, as rapper XXXTentacion has been killed at the age of 20. We’ll talk about performative empathy, and the nuances of if it’s ever OK to speak ill of the dead, despite the kind of person they exhibited themselves to be while they were alive. Detroit Pistons player Reggie Bullock will be the first active NBA player to ride on Pride Parade float in support of the Transgender community as his own sister was a victim violence because she was Transgender. Andrea Kelly, the ex-wife of trashbag of R&B R. Kelly has revealed in a new interview that she too suffered abuse at the hands of the singer. And Donald Chump has ordered the Department of Defense, and the Pentagon to create another branch of the armed forces, and that branch is…. “THE SPACE FORCE” No seriously, this idiot wants a space force. And in Proud To Be An American, a waitress, and Air Force recruit not only lost her job, but lost her shot at the Air Force, after a video of her looking to “HUNT NIGGERS” went viral. And another black man has proclaimed he is “Off The Plantation Bro!” as he bashes BLM, the LGBTQIA community, and progressives in general while speaking at at Turning Point USA event in front of Candace Owens. We’ll break down the silliness that is this notion that progressivism is somehow inherently bad to the black community. Then it’s on to Blue Blazes, as Jerry Springer has FINALLY been canceled after nearly 30 years on the air. And a cheating husband got caught doing the do in the most bizarre way possible. And before we leave out for the night, we’ll be charitable on this Juneteenth 2018 and not have an AssHat of the Week, but we WILL be highlighting a Champ. All of that is coming and maybe a little bit more tonight on The Spann Report!

We dive right In The News, as Louisiana felons have now regained their rights to vote in upcoming elections. Anthony Bourdain has passed away from an apparent suicide, and Donald Chump is having a face to face meet up with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. We move on to Blue Blazes, as Jemele Hill’s mom shows there is nothing more ride or die than a mother from the West Side of Detroit. A man has a child with a married woman, only to find that he has no parental rights to that child.
