Were Harry and Meghan in a two hour car chase from the paparazzi or is this actual fake news? Marion weighs up the possibilities before moving on to the other near catastrophes of the week including the debt ceiling, Rudy Giuliani's legal troubles and the expiration of Title 42.
What’s going to happen with the debt ceiling? Will the US Government come to a solution in time or are Kevin McCarthy and Joe Biden in the wrong place at the wrong time? Is can kicking the new national sport of America or will this recurring crisis ever be solved once and for all?
The orange lead knows a thing or two about postponing an impending crisis even if that means flushing the documents relating to it down the jacks! What’s happening with the many lawsuits upcoming for former President Donald Trump? His best lawyer Tim Parlatore has had enough and left his legal team for good. As time passes is the case against Trump over classified documents indefensible? Marion breaks it down.
It's a crisis that has been a long time coming. Are we finally about to watch downfall of Rudy Giuliani? Bombshell claims of sexual harassment of a former employee and accusations that he offered to sell "Trump-pardons" for $2million each have rained down upon him in a shit storm like no other. We have all you need to know in this week's chat.
The one crisis everyone could see coming but nobody did anything about. (In the second half of of the show on www.patreon.com/irishmanabroad :
Did the border crisis fizzle this week. What is happening now that Title 42 has expired and the sky didn't fall. The horrendous overcrowding at the border and in migrant camps caused the death of a young girl died on Wednesday. What has to happen for Republicans or the Democrats step up to the plate?
One man hoping for a crisis so big it allows him to swoop in will announce his candidacy next week. But what kind of candidate will Ron DeSantis be and will he be successful?)
I am also on tour right now. I’ll be doing my latest standup show in Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Armagh, Galway, Cork, Kilkenny, Naas, Birmingham, London and Tralee to why not grab a ticket while you can. All the other dates have fully sold out! https://linktr.ee/IrishmanAbroad
