The 2016 presidential race is a crowded one thus far, especially on the Republican side. From Scott Walker to Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, there are a lot of GOP candidates making bold claims. Perhaps the boldest, and arguably the most foolish, have been the statements of Donald Trump. Is his spate of rash comments on immigrants and prisoners of war part of a calculated strategy, or is it just the foolish words of a bumbling celebrity billionaire who has overstated relevance? We want to know what you think.

Joining us today is Dr. Stanley Shapshay. He’s a board-certified otolaryngologist—that’s ear nose and throat—with Albany Medical Center.

I scream. You scream. We all scream for….you guessed it, ice cream! This sweet treat is a hallmark of summer, and universally enjoyed the world over in many different flavors, colors and forms. From soft-serve to gelato, black cherry to death by chocolate, we’ll have you screaming for ice cream by the end of this show. Paul Nasrani of the Adirondack Creamery joins us in the studio today.
