HLC-069-They Shoot Gorillas Don’t They?

Welcome to the HLC Podcast for May 31, 2016. It’s the They Shoot Gorillas Don’t They edition. We are nanophysicist Mike Stopa and radio talk host Todd Feinburg. Find us online at harvardlunchclub.com and on twitter @hlcpodcast.
 
Here are our topics:
 
The PC left erupted in rage when the Cincinnati Zoo killed a captive gorilla to save a child who’d slipped into the gorilla exhibit on Saturday after a Monday press conference. Hashtags like #JusticeForHarambe popped up demanding that the zookeepers be personally charged with a crime or calling for an end to animals in captivity. Just a reminder why Trump is so popular?
 
Donald Trump does things like call a federal judge who grew up in Indianapolis and went to state university in Indiana a Mexican, which can make even the most comfortable of Trump voters cringe. So why are we still Trump voters.
 
Billionaire Peter Thiele bankrolled the Hulk Hogan sex tape lawsuit against Gawker because he hates them so much. Should we be worried about the future of a free press if they can be sued into possible bankruptcy by rich buys with an axe to grind?
 
WE’ll have our Shower Thoughts, and for your Hidden Gem we listen to the Becca Stevens Band’s cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Help Me.”
