Tensions With North Korea; Terrorism In Charlottesville

Aug 16, 2017

This hour, we talk about the neo-Nazi rallies in Charlottesville, VA, where one person was killed and many injured after a driver plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters. 

And there's still fallout for President Trump, after two long days where he refused to denounce the neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Now he's lost four executives from the American Manufacturing Council, and there's growing pressure to get rid of advisor Stephen Bannon. 

In what you might call better news, North Korea has announced they will not fire missiles at Guam, after a tense week of "fire and fury" diplomacy. 

And in Connecticut, municipalities are begging legislators to come up with a budget
