Avatar 7:14pm Billy Jam:

for me today's speech at noon in DC (which was sampled along with last night's speech at Lincoln Mem by Trump too) - was so good as in conman good by Trump that he almost got me / convinced me that he was a good guy - hence why I had to juxtapose today's speech with his back catalog of insults -

But the Honorable Judge Jam, now that my presence has been presented shall we start the proceedings?

By the power of Grayskull...I have the power!!

Great show, Billy Jam. I really needed this music today. The countdown to 2020 now begins.
  7:33pm steinski:

Billy, this really a great set.
  7:34pm Foxy brown:

I wish Eric B. was president. Keep jamming Billy jam
  7:34pm eye in the sky:

The first Executive Order Trump signed today raised poor and middle class first time home buyers tax by $500 per year. The first thing Obama signed was the Ledbetter act to make equal pay for women. This Trump motherfucker is a paid Country Assassin.

Avatar 7:41pm Billy Jam:

hey Chud me too. Hey FOXY Brown - thanks for tuning in /commenting - @Steinski YOU are a GOD of political commentary via your audio art dating back 3 decades from this one up to the brand new one from yesterday u made that will be played in a bit here - Thank YOU
  7:42pm steinski:

Oh Billy, you flatterer. Thanks so much.
  7:42pm Betamax81 (Aaron Hali):

You hear that funky cold Tone Loc cowbell sample in the beginning? Good times!
  7:44pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

I have an honest feeling that Trump will will do something illegal in terms of doing something against the constitution. Do you really think he is instantly going to change his ways that he's been getting away with for years?
  7:48pm **!!@@)):

Thank goodness for WFMU! Thank you Billy Jam...Listening to this show while scrubbing dirt off my walls (Trump makes me feel icky).
  7:49pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

As I've said on one of Billy's past shows, just sit back and eat some popcorn and watch the new 45th Season of the Twilight Zone. Channel your energy into a positive matter towards yourselves and not waste it on all the Trump Admin nonsense that is about to unfold.
  7:50pm Foxy brown:

I'm a native new yorker. I grew up with that moron in the newspapers 247. He will never change. If anything his pockets will get fatter while regular people will be in the poorhouse

oh shit thats Trag Khadafi?! Heard Elucid mention him before... LIT
  7:54pm **!!@@)):

Just remember...anything he says that makes you think "hmmm he's not so bad" is just an aspect of his ability to manipulate people. Don't let yourself be manipulated! And yes, channel your energy into creativity and other nurturing activities.

We've had bad presidents before and hopefully we'll survive this one. Stay vigilant. Call your senators and congressmen and make your opinion known.
