On Friday’s edition of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we get into the war for the wall and how Republicans and the White House have decided to wake up and fight for once. But will it last?

And for the video edition, we sat down with Brian Kilmeade from Fox News to talk about how he got his start, ended up on the most popular cable news morning show and became author of multiple bestsellers, including his latest, “Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America’s Destiny.” (The Kilmeade interview is available in both versions of the show, but the video edition is exclusively the interview.)

Listen to the whole show:

Watch the Kilmeade interview:

In what started on this show when Ann Coulter denounced President Donald Trump for refusing to stand up to Democrats and demand funding for a border wall, and ballooned into a chorus of criticism from conservatives, the war for the wall is engaged. While it’s something to celebrate, it should never have come to this. It shouldn’t be hard to get people to do what they were elected to do, what they told us they’d do if we elected them. And with Democrats taking over the House on January 3, this is their last chance to do it.

The House passed a funding bill for government that included $5 billion for the wall, now the fight moves to the Senate with a shutdown looming.

Everywhere, “journalists” are beside themselves at the prospect of a shutdown, or so they say. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, in an amazing display of activism, advocated for “compromise” to avoid a shutdown in a debate with presidential advisor Stephen Miller. It was an exchange for the ages that has to be heard to be believed.

Last week we sat down for an interview with Brian Kilmeade. The popular Fox host talks about how he got his start on a 976 number and worked his way through the sports world to become a successful television and radio host, not to mention bestselling author. Then we talk about Andrew Jackson and the important role he played in American history both as a general and president. It’s an informative and funny interview.
