Tune in for Talkback with Newsvandal JP Sottile as he and James Moore go INSIDE THE HEADLINES for another WEEK THAT WAS.

And it most surely was another week in Trumplandia USA.

Will Trump be able to make headway on Middle East Peace on his trip abroad? Will the Russian collusionI investigation continue on its trajectory? Will Joe LIeberman be the new FBI Director? Who will replace Chaffetz to oversee the oversight committee? Will the Pope and The Donald hit it off? How about that embassy move to Jerusalem for Israel?

Talkback with JP Sottile and James Moore. We'll try to dissect this incredible WEEK THAT WAS, as the President's head begins to spin at the speed of light.

Above the law? What law? Fire the law! Fire the judges! Fire the press!

As the Russian nuisance tightens around his neck, Trump summarily fires the FBI Director, who finds out about it on TV.

"Look, he's a showboat. He's a grandstander."

--Donald J. Trump, talking to the mirror, er, I mean, about firing James Comey, which the president admits may have had something to do with "this Russian thing" after all

The so-called realDonaldTrump also tweeted that...

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

..Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future "press briefings"...

Interview to air Friday 3pm | Sat 11am

Did you know Iowa is home of the oldest mosque in America?

In response to a distrurbing rise in reports of Islamophobia, talk of Muslim travel bans and the new administration's emphasis on radical "Islamic" terrorism, Imam Taha Tawil, the leader of North America's oldest mosque, has scheduled a multifaith rally for this Sunday, March 26th at 3pm to encircle the Mother Mosque of America in Cedar Rapids.

Enjoy a conversation about the rally and related topics. Imam Taha stresses that it's not as much a Muslim rally as a rally for Americans of all faiths and even non-faiths to stand for the Constitution, the freedom to practice religion, assembly and exercise free speech which are birthrights of all Americans.
