When even classical music radio hosts give shade

When even classical music radio hosts give shade

Driving to work in Los Angeles is no laughing matter. The freeways are gridlocked, the drivers are schmucks, and you're one quirk of fate away from having your prized vehicle smashed up in a 20 car pile up. In short, it's stressful.

So, on my morning commute, I have my radio tuned to our classical music station, KUSC.

One of the station's long-time hosts, Rich Capparela, has a Friday afternoon radio slot which he conducts from his home in Santa Monica. Appropriately enough, it's called "KUSC at the Beach".

As I was driving this morning, he came on with a promo for this week's show. In the last bit of the promo he, very seriously, teased a piece by a newly discovered son of J.S. Bach: "Johann Christian Friedrich Sebastian Covfefe Bach."

Yes, a host at a very strait-laced classical music radio station mocked our Dunderhead-in-Chief.

Now, if you're a listener to KUSC, you'd know that Rich has a very impish sense of humor. However, the station, as a rule, stays away from politics. (Jim Svejda, the other stalwart of the station, is a well-known right-winger.) That Rich felt free to make a joke like that shows just what a farce this presidency is.

So, join in and laugh at Donald Trump. It's the one thing tyrants fear the most.

This is your open thread.
