Mike Slater takes on the questions of the season: "Why are Republican candidates always presented as if they're the next Hitler?"

Also, Mike digs into a reasoned explanation on why the country is not hunting minorities and delves into how dangerous the rhetoric has become, which leads to a discussion on white privilege.

Talking about how we can reconcile our cognitive dissonance, Mike applies an ageless lesson from one of Aesop's famous fables: "The Fox and the Grapes," a succinct tale of a character who would rather deny his desire for something, than admit his defeat for ever attaining it.

Also, Mike tackles why you have to have a healthy amount of cynicism when hearing reports in the media of attacks by Trump supporters.

The Mike Slater Show is live every Saturday from 3pm-6pm ET, only on The BlazeRadioNetwork.
