On today’s edition of The Daily Signal podcast, Rob Bluey and Ginny Montalbano welcome Reaching America President Derrick Hollie to talk about his organization’s innovative solutions for African-Americans. Hollie discusses his commitment to finding solutions on issues ranging from energy poverty to occupational licensing. And he shares his thoughts on President Donald Trump’s ongoing feud with NFL players.

We also recognize the contributions of longtime conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, who died Thursday at 68. Heritage Foundation President Kay Coles James said: “In print, online, and at Fox News, Charles consistently raised the level of our political discourse. Not only did he have a unique ability to make the complex clear, he also had a wonderful way with words.”

Plus, we share some of our favorite letters from you and highlight a special birthday for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Your letter could be featured next week; write us at [email protected]. Enjoy the show.
