Donald Trump

(Episode 234) #TSRP “8 Years In”

Yooooo! It’s the 8th Anniversary of The Spann Report! On January 8th of 2011, the very first episode of #TSRP was uploaded into Podomatic, and ya man Spann dipped his feet into these podcasting waters, and hasn’t looked back! So it would be apropos if we do a little reflecting on how far we’ve come along the way. From Spann starting the podcast with a laptop and a headset, and a teleprompter program, and audacity crashing on him all the time. To doing weekly live shows with no script, speaking to the issues of the day, and expanding on that, and producing more shows on to complement The Spann Report, and hopefully grow even more. After we get the warm and fuzzies out of the way, it’s time to get back to the business of what we do. And we hop In The News, as the partial government continues, government employees are working without being paid. And TSA screeners are calling in sick to work because of it. Ellen DeGeneres is catching heat for supporting Kevin Hart, and lobbying to get him to host the Oscars. Michigan Representative, Rashida Tlaib is under fire for referring to Donald Trump as a MFer. And an assaulted McDonald’s worker finally speaks out about the fight that she had with a customer over a straw that went viral. Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as it seems that Madonna may have been a bit unhappy with her backside, but were injections really the answer? People are really trying to make re-usable toilet paper a thing. Yes REALLY. Kevin Spacey is in court to face charges that he groped a teenage bus boy, and did Erica Mena, and Safaree Samuels secretly get married already? And Birdman, and Toni Braxton called it quits on their engagement. We should all be able to breath again now that that craziness is over. Then it’s time for Proud To Be An American, where we find one of those folks we hoped we left behind in 2018, a Black Republican getting on national TV to suggest that those on public assistance aren’t looking for jobs anymore, they’re looking for porn. And a Manhattan judge has just ruled that it’s perfectly legal to throw Trump supporters out of bars. But is this the right thing to do? And of course, we wrap up the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. Soo much to get into and cover, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing on episode 234 of The Spann Report!

(Ep. 232) #TSRP “Too Much Dip On Ya Chip”

On the final episode of #TSRP for 2019 we got a lot to cover. We start the show with some listener feedback as we got a few emails after the last episode concerning Kevin Hart debacle. We then hop In The News, as The Betsy DeVos Department of Education cancels over $150 Million in student loan debt after being sued for delays. Male birth control is on the horizon, and it’s a shoulder rub away. A report came out from the New York Times that during the 2016 Presidential election, that Russian operatives targeted Black voters in an effort to dissuade them from voting. And the government is currently shut down after Donald Trump refused to sign a funding bill, because it didn’t include monies for the border wall he said Mexico would be paying for. Then, we’re off to Blue Blazes, with Chris Rock getting dragged to all hell after video resurfaced of him defending Louis CK’s use of the word “Nigger.” Millennials in China are sending nude pictures of themselves as collateral to secure loans, and singer Jacqueese is catching the wrath of old school R&B heads after he proclaimed himself, King Of R&B. The Special Hotep Unit makes a return as Umar Johnson comes out from the shadows to attack Tyler Perry for the ways he spends his money. Namely the paying off of Christmas layaways of poorer families. Then, it’s off to Proud To Be American where a bank called the police on a black man for trying to cash his paycheck. A jury acquits a man who blasted Fu*k The Police right in front of the police. A bill in the Michigan Senate is seeking to end childhood marriage in the state, and in Huntington Woods Michigan, disgruntled parents are seeking to put an end to Drag Queen Story Time at the library because they think the practice is “perverse.” We’ll be covering all of that and of we’ll have our Annual AssHat of The Year Class Graduation, and ourChamps of The Year announcements. Lots to get into, so let’s get right to it right here and right now on The Spann Report!

(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.

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.

(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!
