On the approach to Memorial Day Weekend in America, President Obama visits Hiroshima, Japan to share his sentiments about the future of humanity. As Obama calls for a global "moral revolution" and hopes for a "world without nuclear weapons," we find ourselves questioning the realism of his lofty assumptions about human nature. Some naiveté involved herein? Could Obama's halting, hesitating form of 'patriotism' be paving the way for its opposite in his successor? Meanwhile, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump passes the magic number of 1237 delegates and stays on offense against the Clintons. As the GOP unifies, the Democrats plunge into further disarray. In spite of widespread buttressing from the media, is the Hillary campaign prematurely imploding? Could Bernie Sanders take California? Also, we discuss the enduring pathologies of Bill Kristol, Mitt Romney and the "Never Trump" fringes. With Memorial Day tributes and listener calls.
