I'm STILL laughing at the "intellectually honest republicans" line......that's comedy gold, right there!! What an absolute joke..he's supposedly intellectually honest yet he continues to vote for these treasonous garbage republicans. They're all so tone deaf and narcisistic like that one caller brought up. They 'll just never accept right from wrong when it's their side doing it.

You were great with Evan and my favorite part was when you told him that you are obsessed with democracy!

So, I actually just finished listening to your show from today. I heard the guy live yesterday. The fact that he said 1/6 was a horrible thing, but then just brushes it off like nothing more should be done, shows his callus attitude towards our CONSTITUTION. He called himself a Conservative Constitutionalist. WTF!

How the hell is speaking about wanting justice for 1/6 and accountability for those involved, causing/spreading hate and demonizing those that were involved? They should all be either in jail or out of government never, ever to be able to run for anything again. The wheels of justice move way to slow.

Also, your 3 hr. show discusses many topics other than 1/6, however, if there is new news about it, like the text messages, you are going to talk about it. As it should be.

I would have loved to hear the plans/platform he thinks Republicans have. The border is rather redundant since Biden already worked a deal with the Mexican government. I wish you would talk more about that.

Anyway, good job Mike!

Your patience should be given an Angel award this year. He just kept changing the subject because he’s got nothing.

Evan was not as far out there as many other right wing hypocrites. However, he certainly had his talking points at the ready, jumping to the border and Hunter Biden as soon as the discussion about January 6th was not going his way. Michelangelo, you summed it up great that if everyone could all agree on the facts of January 6th then we would have come a long way to holding people accountable. It's still party over country for the MAGAs. Those in power are comfortable with the knowledge that their base won't hold them accountable because they prefer the culture wars and conspiracies and a swampy government that only works for them and nobody else.

Maybe the “intellectually honest” ones will move on from “marshall Dillon law” to “marital law” to “Geritol law” before hitting on “martial law”. Evan was baiting and waiting to POUNCE as soon as he heard the word “racist”. He accused you of obsessing while he is clearly obsessing over you, digging around history, etc. At least he sounded basically decent, not the rabid, foaming at mouth type. Good job of whack a mole, Mike. Apparently you’ve gotten under his right wing skin for the weeks he’s been listening. That means another new angel gets its wings.

One of the lasting legacies of Rush Limbaugh is filling the world with people like Evan; they know meaningless words like "constitutional conservative" and steer the discussion back to their talking points to keep you playing defense.

OMG, "the people are being treated unfairly"??!! The people who participated in an insurrection and killed and injured police officers trying protect our Capitol and government? Really? The moron in chief is still being ALLOWED to spout lies about an attack on our way of government and you, me and everyone else who condemned this are the ones 'whipping up the discord'? Unbelievable! Thank you Michelangelo for standing up, as you ALWAYS do to these people who would still have us believe that the election was 'rigged'. The only reason they say that is because they refuse to believe that they LOST! Also, Antifa is an idea, NOT an organized reality like the 'Proud Boys' and the 'Oath Keepers' who ARE an organized racket of criminals!

From what I can discern from your efforts is that your caller is suffering from cult idiocy that doesn't display a hint of clarity of thought. The racism he seemingly hinted at after not being able to get traction on why he voted for people who don't believe in democracy, is a fallback position he can't understand outside of the Faux News bubble. I would suggest you employ a cult deprogramming specialist for future callers of his ilk...

I learn a lot from these encounters. My family are election deniers and I need to refute their ridiculous ideas.

This one is worse than my relatives at least admit to me however I found it amazing that he called himself a “conservative constitutionalist”. He supports defending those that attempted to overthrow the constitution. Wants to pardon the terrorists of January 6

And then he brings as his issue his racist ideals.

if other listeners enjoy the wacko callers, great. I prefer callers who share our perspective--the more colorfully, the better! or the great guests you have.

I loved the podcast. I enjoyed the dialogue/ conversation with Evan. Evans responses underscore the power of misinformation. I was fascinated by Evans non stop minimizing & deflection. The mantra of the far right & many conservatives is to deny, distort, deflect & dehumanize. When a point is made and the focus is laser sharp the strategy they’ve learned on whatever topic is to what about this & what about that in an attempt to pivot. This is why I have with 1 exception no Republican friends and I’m fine with that. I am interested in living in a world where facts, words and context matter. Great podcast. Great job in piercing the wall of denial that is the core of the “ constitutionalist conservative “ bane for being.

That call was HILARIOUS to hear in real time, during your show. You and Joe Madison know how to handle the trolls and trumpanzees...

Caller Evan is stuck on stupid. Even scarier, so are all of those Trump supporters. I just love how you calmly call them out on all that they are doing. Truth is, they will support anyone who supports their agenda, full stop.

It is disgusting and despicable.

Thank you for calling them out.

Evan from Texas can go straight to hell, preferably at the head of a caravan™ of similar whackos. But hey, if he wants to get a Michelangelo smackdown, who am I to object? Have at it, Michelangelo! They are indeed like whackamoles, as Joyce said.

I was listening to that exchange with Evan. Kudos to you for the way you handled it. I may have to consider donning adult diapers as insurance from 3 to 6 PM ET when I listen to the show--out of fear that I might soil myself from laughter when I hear you take on callers like Evan. I was howling! LOL (Reminded me of a Road Runner cartoon "adapted for radio.") "Buon Natale! "
