Episode 181 - Tom Arnold

Hollywood celebrity, podcaster (Divorce Party), and legendary comedian, Tom Arnold, talks candidly with Craig about his many Colorado connections. Jokes are told about Nuggets v Lakers with fun discussions of politicians, comedy clubs, movie stars, charitable galas, and sports celebrities.

Here are some bold name people that come up: Shaq, Kobe, Vic Lombardi, Coach Michael Malone (Lakers’ Daddy), Marilyn Van Derbur Atler, Mchael Strahan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh, James Cameron, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles, Geraldo Rivera, Alan Berg, Kevin McCarthy, Michael Cohen, Jerry Fallwell Jr., Marvin Davis, Barbara Davis, George McKelvy, etc.

A proud Jew, Tom Arnold explains his roots, clearing up any misconception he converted to Judaism to marry Roseanne. Tom Arnold gained fame in comedy clubs, including Denver, and then as a comedy writer for Roseanne and others. He passionately responds to the failure of the Hollywood Writers Guild to compose a condemnation of Hamas.

Roseanne Barr, formerly Roseanne Arnold, is back in the news and spewing pro-MAGA conspiracy theories. Tom Arnold has us consider his ex-wife’s conduct now by pointing to certain events way back when. It’s somewhat shocking Barr would be a big backer of Trump and MAGA given what Arnold witnessed, and describes.

Tom Arnold has known Donald Trump for over four decades. He and Roseanne headlined for him at his Atlantic City hotel. Tom Arnold understood harsh truths about Trump long before others perceived it. Trump took him to the LA Playboy Mansion to show off his girlfriend. And they all posed – plus Melania and Ivanka. Arnold describes the scene.

Tom Arnold knows damaging truths about Trump, and what he wants to do to destroy American democracy. Tom Arnold spent time at the Four Seasons in Moscow, across from the Kremlin making a movie. Tom Arnold describes his informed perception of Putin and Trump dynamics, and communications.

In honor of Tom Arnold and his tempestuous relationship with Roseanne and other wives, Show Troubadour Dave Gunders provides “Hole in the Head,” a tragic-comic song about an awful relationship. Colorado responses to the Hamas attack and Kristallnacht 85 years ago reviewed.
