Today on The Todd and Don Show we discuss:

Trump is the president that keeps on giving. His rally on Tuesday just goes to prove that.  President Donald Trump stated that he would be willing shutdown the government over the funding of an enhanced border wall, that he was still considering the firing of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and that we are seriously considering a future without NAFTA. This is a lot to unload which leads us to wonder, is he running for a 2020 election or is he preforming the duties of president.

 Robert Lee was sidelined from announcing a football game over his name. ESPN in a statement said, "We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name...” Was this move was justified to help ease racial tensions, or was it this just another example of political correctness gone wrong? 

 Louise Linton, wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, has publicly apologized for her response in a nasty social media exchange over a post in which Linton called out many designer labels she was wearing.

Whole Foods shareholders voted to accept a proposed buyout by online retailer Amazon. So now that has passed, let’s all ask Alexa to buy us a cedar plank smoked salmon for lunch.

Ford has designed a crib to simulate the feeling of driving is a car. Ford claims that the gentle rocking motion and passing of lights will lull babies to sleep. No prices are announced as far as we can tell, but we can assume that oil changes and scheduled maintenance are not included in the price.

La Metro will begin issuing tickets for man spreading , the act of a man taking more than one seat space. The tickets are an attempt to make the traveling experience more pleasant for riders. Who would rack up more tickets, Todd or Don? I’d say the money is on Don… if he ever rode public transit.

Christi Bowmer of Cedar Park is suing the owners of the Littlefield Garage, GTT Parking LPP, over the neglect of the cabling system used to prevent crashes. This is the same garage that had a truck dangling over the edge not that long ago.

 Greg Kelley was released from jail on bond on Tuesday after a court finding that his due process rights were violated.  We ask, what is the future of this case?

 A new report by IIHS claims that is lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring where made standard on all vehicles, 85,000 crashes could be avoided.
