Today on my SiriusXM Radio show Seth Meyers the host of NBC's "Late Night with Seth Meyers" joins me. We recorded the interview Friday and it already made press because some clips were released. My show is Noon to 1PMET on SiriusXM Radio Ch 121. Here's an article from Entertainment Weekly about the interview and Seth calling Trump "Robin Williams on a real Coke-y night" http://ew.com/tv/2017/03/17/seth-meyers-trump-robin-williams-obama/

Now a Republican Senator wants "extreme vetting" of American Muslims before he will even speak with them! The goal of this is to marginalize American Muslims from U.S. politics. We can expect to see Trump administration at some point also call for "vetting" of American Muslims to see if were are loyal because this is clearly where this is heading. Hope you check out My new The Daily Beast article. Thanks! http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/03/06/trump-s-extreme-muslim-vetting-is-getting-a-trial-run-in-oklahoma.html

Trump is afraid of punchlines! On Saturday Trump announced he won't be attending the White House Correspondents Dinner in April-making him the first President in over 30 years to miss it. Why? Well he claims because media is unfair. The reality is that Trump gets rattled when people laugh at him. And like a dictator he understands that when people are laughing at him it undermines his power. Plus Obama was great at telling jokes and Trump would look horrible in comparison. Hope u check out my new CNN article. Thx http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/26/opinions/why-trump-bailed-on-whcd-obeidallah-opinion/index.html

I have to thank Trump for inspiring thousands of Americans to stand up for Muslims across the country! My new The Daily Beast article on how the silver lining to the despicable Trump is that he has inspired so many good people to speak out. And this Sunday in NYC's Times Square there will be a big "I am Muslim too" rally organized by Russell Simmons, Imam Shamsi Ali and Rabbi Marc Schneier. (I'm co-emceeing the rally with comedian Judy Gold.) Hope u check out the article and if you live in NYC area come out Sunday! Thanks http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/02/17/thanks-trump-for-making-americans-heart-muslims.html

Wanted to share my appearance today on Good Morning America - (Im on about 3 minutes into the segment) We talked SNL and did SNL go too far in mocking Kellyanne Conway. (I say no!) http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/snl-fire-kellyanne-conway-sketch-45453081
