    Donald Trump said for the first time that he believes President Obama was born in the US, but does he really think that after the admission people will forget the years he spent peddling the conspiracy?

    Donald Trump is trying to put his birther past behind him now that he’s tantalizingly close to winning the White House. The best way to do that might be by starting a new scandal. Also, what should Hillary Clinton do now that she’s losing voters to far-right Libertarian Gary Johnson. 

    And we report on a bit of good news. Migrant farmworkers in Washington State won recognition of their union last week. We discuss it with Maru Mora Villalpando, communications coordinator of their union, Familias Unidas Por La Justicia.

    Finally, John Boehner is loving life right now: drinking wine, chain-smoking cigarettes and taunting his enemies on Twitter for their embarrassing failures. He’ll have less time to do that, however, now that he has taken a job as a tobacco lobbyist. At least he’s practicing what he preaches!

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
