Today, Jackie Beat joins us from her home in LA to talk about her quarantine parodies of Three’s Company, Carrie, Mommie Dearest and The Golden Girls presented into a whole new genre: video conferencing sitcom.

    Jackie Beat is amazing. Love her. Great interview. I may have an answer/non-answer to the people who support trump. I have friends who are trump supporters. I asked several of them why they support him. Not one of them could tell me why. It was mostly how awful Obama was. We know that is a lie. I’ve come to the conclusion that people who are Republican and extreme, like these supporters, only vote Republican, and that party can do no wrong.

    To me, this is an uneducated way of thinking. I’ve voted across parties when I felt the candidate would be better for the job. I always thought that was the way it is supposed to be. In addition, there is an element of bigotry from the extreme right. They are still so butt-hurt by the fact that a black man was in charge for 8 years. They want trump to be our dictator and will do much harm if trump loses this election. I worry.

    Anyway I’ll get off my soapbox now. Very good show. I love you guys! Hugs!
