In recent weeks, we've had some guests on THE LATEST PODCAST who made it clear they weren't big Trump fans. In order to balance the scales -- THE LATEST is completely neutral when it comes to politics -- this week we interviewed Larry Jarvik. Jarvik describes himself as an independent -- but he clearly likes Donald Trump. Democrats? Not so much.

For those who like Donald Trump -- or who want to understand why Trump supporters love the president so much -- this week's podcast is a "must listen":

Larry Jarvik is a columnist for TheLatest.com.  At THE LATEST, we invite commentary from across the political spectrum, so long as it's all presented in a spirit of mutual respect.  We have a nice mix of liberals, moderates, conservatives and independents. 

THE LATEST also covers non-political topics -- business, tech, show business, sports, lifestyle, etc.

Post-recording, Jarvik supplied some links to stories he thinks back up some assertions he made during our session.

Jarvik said, pre-George Floyd, 40% of Black voters in America supported Donald Trump:

Jarvik said Obama was far tougher on whistleblowers than Trump has been:

Jarvik also said Democratic mayors were behind some of the race-related protests we've seen in recent months:

Special thanks to Christine O'Donnell of Bright Sighted Podcasting, our producer.  Christine was "shadowed" this week by Karagan Knowles, a student intern working with TheLatest.com this summer.
