Eat, Drink and Smoke – Episode 19 – Is Fast Food Really Racist? Two Marches, But Only One Gets Coverage and the Florida Sun Grown Cigar

The President invites the Clemson football team to a feast of Big Macs and Whoppers. Is that racist? Tony Katz has the same feast with April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy to figure it out.

The latest episode of Eat! Drink! Smoke! reviews Prichard’s Tennessee Malt Whiskey and the Florida Sun Grown toro cigar from Drew Estates.

There’s no deal on the shutdown, and the Women’s March took place. So did the March for Life, but you didn’t hear about it…unless you learned that Ben Shaprio lost two sponsors because of his speech.

And a New York restaurant has barred women from sitting at the bar, because they may be confused for hookers.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – Motley Crue Will Not Get You Out Of A Speeding Ticket and Stop Taxing The Poor!

A water tax? Really?

The new California governor wants to institute a water tax to help others get access to water. Yeah…it’s just an excuse to add yet another tax in the state. Unfortunately, California is not alone in raising taxes. Check out Indiana…and France!

Speaking of water, is it drinkable yet in Flint, MI?

And a guy in Canada gets pulled over in his car for speeding. His excuse? Motley Crue was on the radio, and he just had to drive fast. Do you think that excuse would work? April D. Gregory says she never had to blame the music to get out of a ticket.

Tony Katz hosts Eat! Drink! Smoke! The podcast is recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Tony is joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.

Quick Hit – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez On Morality, Facts and How She Wants To Be Judged By You

On 60 Minutes, Dem Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told Anderson Cooper that more important than getting the facts right on policy, is that the policy is “morally correct.”

Tony Katz explains how Cortez has opened herself up to an entirely new line of questioning. “Rep. Cortez has done a great job of avoiding criticism and making those who attack her look bad.” says Tony. “But now, she’s let all that go. She doesn’t care about facts, which is exactly the argument progressives make about President Trump. And she has asked people to question whether, morally, her Socialist policies have value; people get to question her morality. I don’t think she realizes what she’s done here.”

281 – So A Guy Got Locked In A Burger King Bathroom, It’s Now Speaker Pelosi and Apple Gets A Bite Taken Out Of It

With Democrats taking control of the House, the Night of 1000 Subpoenas is upon us. Tony Katz discusses what will happen, and why Speaker Pelosi has her hands full with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

And why is President Trump not aiming for the head of Senator Mitt Romney after his op-ed in the Washington Post?

A man got stuck in a Burger King bathroom for an hour, and was offered free food. Did he really think it would last for life? And Apple is seeing a massive slowdown in the purchase of iPhones.

280 – White Women Wish For Wokeness, LeBron the Activist has A Lot To Learn and Mitt Romney Swings Wildly At Trump

The Women’s March in Eureka, CA has been cancelled, because of too many white women. Tony Katz breaks down the progressive cannibalism that is the very concept of “wokeness.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is running for President. And Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s inauguration speech shows that he’s running as well. Unfortunately for him, the speech is just awful. Sen-Elect Mitt Romney takes President Trump’s character to task. Unfortunately for him, his Washington Post op-ed doesn’t do him any favors.

LeBron James may be the best basketball player in the world, and he might be the best who ever played the game. But activist LeBron James has a lot to learn.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Snack Size! – Do You Want Your Alcohol With Lemons, Oranges or Cherries, and Cruise Ships Aren’t For Everyone…Even If They Have Roller Coasters

April D. Gregory has found her new love, and it’s a cherry liqueur made by Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery in Indianapolis.

On this Snack Size edition of Eat! Drink! Smoke!, Tony Katz has to contend with April and Fingers Malloy enjoying an entire bottle of the cherry love, while Hotel Tango owner Travis Barnes encourages them. As a veteran, he also has a great story of how his mom used to send him bourbon while he was serving in Iraq.

A new Carnival cruise ship has a roller coaster on it. Have we gone too far with our first-world entertainment? Either way, Fingers won’t go on a cruise ship, which he calls a “death trap.”

279 – Tucker Carlson Gets Boycotts Because Conservatives Do Nothing, and America Is Woke About Bigot Louis Farrakhan…Just Not Rep. Andre Carson

Tucker Carlson of FOX News is facing boycotts for comments about illegal immigrants; more than nine sponsors have left the show. When MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski used a gay slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, nothing happened. She gave a half-hearted apology, that didn’t include Sec. Pompeo, and all was forgotten and forgiven.

“Conservatives have to accept the fact that boycotts work.” says Tony Katz. “And if the politcal right isn’t willing to fight fire with fire, they’ll continue to lose the culture war. Boycotts are awful, but doing nothing is worse.”

Americans of all stripes understand that the Women’s March leaders are proudly connected to antisemite Louis Farrakhan. Yet, Democrat Rep. Andre Carson continues to support him.

278 – Mexico’s President Uses Dead Girl To Attack Trump Over Border, Obamacare Is Only Unconstitutional On Paper

A seven year-old girl died of dehydration at the US-Mexico border. Former Mexican President Vicente Fox blames President Trump. Tony Katz discusses the indecency of the anti-Trump crowd, that they will gladly use the death of children to move their anti-Trump agenda.

“Hate President Trump all you want.” says Tony. “But using a dead girl as your cover is obscene.”

MSNBC host Joy Reid has no time for a Biden/Beto ticket, because it’s too white. And too male. And too white and male. Obamacare has been ruled unconstitutional…yet nothing is going to change.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! – Episode 16 – Will You Vaccinate After Lou Ferrigno’s Mishap? Steve Harvey Says No To Oscar and Meet a Military Veteran Who Went Deep In The Bourbon

Lou Ferrigno – America’s favorite Hulk! – is saying that a pneumonia vaccine went wrong for him, and he’s warning others. Bring on the anti-vaxxer crowd, and the renewed conversation about vaccinations in America.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! is on site this week at Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery with owner Travis Barnes and master distiller Eric Stauffer. Talking to host Tony Katz, they go deep into what makes good bourbon. Travis started the first disabled-veteran owned distillery in the country.

Steve Harvey is happy to host Miss Universe, but he wants nothing to do with the Oscars. Why? He doesn’t want his past dug up

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded live at Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery in Indianapolis, IN. Tony is joined by April D. Gregory and Fingers Malloy.
