Wharton School of Finance honors graduates, May 1968

So hey, Hairspray von Clownstick didn’t graduate first in his class at Wharton. He didn’t graduate with any kind of honors at all. Ain’t that something?

I wonder if we might talk about that a little bit today? Oh yeah, there’s more stuff. But this one I have a picture of.

Well, he may not have been first in his class. But he was voted “Most Likely to Have a Racist Butler.”

Something’s missing! It’s hard to not find hide nor hair of that guy!

Listen LIVE right here at 9:00 AM ET!

Who was it that I saw saying that they wished they knew of a quick and easy way to support the Kagro in the Morning show?

Was that you?

I thought so!

Well, now you can help justify the continued occupation of the “family room” at KITM World Headquarters by our “high-tech studio” with simple and easy PayPal donations, or recurring, monthly subscriptions! For you hipsters, we offer the same monthly option, but with a fancier name, through the KITM Patreon account!

And remember, the more of you who contribute, the less I feel like an idiot for doing this. Come on, that’s important!

David Waldman tries to pull our gaze away from the Trump train wreck and on to more reasonable concerns, but you know us. Wait, Donald Trump is winning? Greg Dworkin explains how the Republicans are getting in line, but Democrats know that coalescing is boring, which is one explanation for the “lead narrowing” stories. Trump is rising, but so was McCain. Could the bruising of the primary fight hurt Clinton in the general? The Democrats are considering new rules to avoid “convention chaos”. Does Trump really believe the crazy stuff he says? Reddit’s biggest Trump community fractures over right-wing extremism. Is the friction in both parties a sign of the future of the political parties relationship with voters? It won’t be the first break up in the Gop. Greg explains how voters and policies are converging, and why. Not everyone is going insane. Some catch on to the danger of accepting Donald Trump. Suburban swing-state white women don’t trust Trump. The NRA shoots itself in the foot, as the backlash is felt from its Trump endorsement. Overseas, immigration backlash is at the heart of the British push to leave the E.U. In Austria’s election, the far-right candidate and his rival are tied at 50%. Bernie Sanders says he supports the DNC Chair’s primary opponent, but why would she want to stick around anyhow? Guns: Portable, valuable, and interesting to thieves.
