Hi Ari on a lighter note, one of my friends mentioned to me that she now watches The Beat and she no longer watches CNN. She likes that you deliver factual information and likes your perspective on politics, law and culture

Hi Ari, Good evening and Happy almost Fri-YAY!!! As Lizzo would sing, it is about damn time. Now I can believe that no one is above the law...Trump’s indictment is the best news ever!

Today was indeed a good day!

Well, once he’s convicted his face and tiny hands will match his orange jumpsuit. 🍊

I'm not sad about this... That said, I am infuriated by the GOP candidates and wanna be candidates who are maligning this indictment, and the NY DA. If these fascists wanted to do something for the US citizenry, they might propose some solutions for the border; for our energy independence going forward, for the deficits and debt, for the looming societal acrimony caused directly by their empowerment and legislation to simultaneously enrich the most wealthy while concurrently dissipating assets of those less advantaged. They want to control a woman's choices but reject adequate assistance to women to house, feed, and maintain the health of that child, let alone the mother. What about the fact that they've enabled and in fact encouraged job flight from the US and more recently, amended tax laws to tax income produced overseas at rates less than those for domestic income? Main street America has been abandoned by these MAGAs in favor of the multinationals who send our best technology abroad to the detriment of our competitive stance.. Roughly 20 of the largest corporations pay no income taxes. Yeah, these Pubs are real patriots.........mostly resembling the most notorious civil and criminal scoundrel in US history.........Donald Trump. While I can understand the fundamental precepts behind the GOP of 50 plus years ago, the current followers and drivers of the ultra right are being taken advantage of not unlike the Pied Piper of Hamlin trumpeting the rats into the river. They are the most naive suckers we have ever witnessed at any point in US history.

Since the MAGA craze and the systematic destruction of American institutions, I have been eagerly waiting for a sign that the Justice System of the USA was the last institution Trump could not corrupt and destroy!!!!

I got my sign tonight !!!!

Hoping there will be more signs soon !!!!

Hooray and Hallelujah, you had it coming to you

Goody goody for you

Goody goody for me

I hope you're satisfied you rascal you!!

Praise the lord and pass the handcuffs.

We waited and we waited, not always patiently but it has finally happened and hopefully they will come now in multiples. What the tangerine tweeter has done to this country is such a shame. I only hope that the judge, in any of these issues, will insist on a gag order so we don't have to be continually assaulted.

Break out the champs!

Ari… as usual, I watched The Beat earlier and and thank you to you and all of your brilliant guests for a most timely and informative hour. Indeed this is an historic moment for which we have long awaited. Now, we must be patient and let the judicial process take its course.

Hello Ari,

Oh, what a night!! As you so eloquently stated, "This is a whole different challenge, and if he doesn’t know that yet, he is about to find out." In other words, tRump done f***ed around, and now he's about to find out!!

Next Tuesday's arraignment, should it actually take place as reported, is gonna be -- to paraphrase the history-making, now-indicted former president -- "wild." 😲😼

With each unthinkable, immoral, possibly criminal act unaccounted for over these years, my confidence in our systems of justice and governance crumbled just a little more. Until today. My faith is restored. Let’s see what happens. On a lighter note, it was so hard to focus on brilliant Maya Wiley’s words on your show tonight because I was waiting for her cat to knock that piece of pottery off the top shelf behind her.
