Michael Cohen is only a message from Robert Mueller to President Trump

These are the questions that President Trump should be answering in Argentina today at the G-20:

"Mr President how was your meeting with China's president?"

"Mr President have you ended the trade war?"

"Mr president… insert anything relevant here that might show we've solved any of our problems."

RELATED: Michael Cohen's plea deal won't lessen Trump's support. Here's why.

But that's probably not going to happen. Robert Muller - for the second time - has waited until President Trump was traveling to a world summit to drop a Russia investigation bomb. The first time he did this, Muller indicted twelve Russian military intelligence officials for the 2016 email hacks. Kind of significant being that Trump was going to meet Putin. The media frenzy shifted to Muller's investigation. Now fast forward to yesterday. The president had two very key meetings on his docket with Xi Jinping of China and Vladimir Putin of Russia. Thankfully the China meeting is still on, but President Trump has cancelled his meeting with Putin. Now I'd personally love to hear how the situation in Ukraine influenced that decision, but will any journalist talk about that or will they just be asking questions about Michael Cohen?

It remains to be seen. Muller's Michael Cohen bomb yesterday rocked the mainstream media. It's pretty much all you heard about. Cohen is expected to plead guilty in making false statements to Congress, regarding comments he made on a business deal in Moscow. Cohen previously claimed that the deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow ended by January 2016, now he's saying that's false. He claims that he continued to brief both the president AND the family through the summer of that year.

This was more like a message Muller wanted to send to the president.

President Trump has previously claimed in the public - not under oath… and that's key here - that, by that time, he didn't have any business deals ongoing in Russia. The media was acting yesterday as if this was the ultimate smoking gun, but we still don't know anything new from this. At the moment, all this is, is Cohen's word against the president that there was a business deal being pursued in Russia - that was never actually completed - and it was going down during the campaign. Could that be significant? Yes, but - and this is key - unless the president addressed this issue as part of his formal written responses to Muller, even if he has said anything contrary in the public, there's nothing indictable here. And Cohen would still have to provide some kind of document to prove his claim… an email, letter, contract with the president's signature… something.

So a smoking gun right now? No. But it could be significant in the future if there's more there. But we also know that this is a very weak thing for Cohen to confess to. Lying to Congress very rarely brings any kind of punishment. This was more like a message Muller wanted to send to the president. He wanted to say "look… I'm still here, I've got your boy, he's singing like a canary, and this is only the beginning."

We finally have an answer to the long-awaited question of who Trump will pick for his running mate, and it's none other than Ohio Senator and friend of the show, J.D. Vance. At the RNC in Milwaukee, Trump officially accepted the party's nomination as the Republican candidate and announced J.D. Vance as his running mate.

Glenn has had Senator Vance on the show several times to discuss everything from DEI to the Southern Border. If you are looking to familiarize yourself with the next potential Vice President, look no further, here are five conversations Glenn had with Trump's VP pick:

How RFK's example can help our nation in the wake of Trump's attack

How did you feel last Saturday when you heard the news that a former president of the United States narrowly avoided an assassin's bullet by a mere few inches? Were you angry at the media for their constant demonization of Trump and his conservative contingency? Did you blame the left for curating a political climate that fostered an assassination attempt?

In his immediate reaction to the news, Glenn pointed us back to a similar moment in American history: April 4th, 1968—the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated.

"The best speech I've ever heard given was by RFK Sr. on the day Martin Luther King was killed" - Glenn

Robert F. Kennedy, the father of current independent presidential candidate RFK Jr., was en route to Indianapolis when he heard the terrible news. His security team, expecting violent outrage across the country, asked RFK Sr. to turn around and head back to safety. But as Glenn said, RFK Sr. believed in the good in people and demanded to give his speech. He arrived in Indianapolis Park late in the day, and he addressed the crowd of predominantly black campaign supporters.

There were no riots in Indianapolis that night.

The message RFK Sr. gave that night wasn't one of vengeance, hatred, or hopelessness, but of calm and goodness. He appealed to the best in people. He called for people to set aside their differences, anger, fear, and confusion and instead express love and compassion towards one another. RFK Sr. asked for wisdom and the pursuit of justice so that we might be resolute in our unity as the country faces another difficult chapter.

What we need in this country is love and wisdom and compassion toward one another.

Glenn has made a similar plea to our nation—a plea for unity and not to lash out in fear and anger. Don't use this time to blame your friends and family who disagree with you politically for what happened or to tell them "I told you so!" Instead, reach out with compassion and grace. This is a turning point in American history. Let's turn it upward, away from hatred and violence and towards unison and compassion.

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.


During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:
