There's a legitimate objection ... and then there's the sort we often hear from performers.

Jim Gearhart can't help notice much of Hollywood is filled with people each eager to say something worse about President Donald Trump than the last. And he suspects they're not all genuine in their criticism.

"The mother's milk, the lifeblood of a performer, is getting attention," Jim says in the Jim Gearhart Show podcast, available here as well on iTunes and Google Play. This week, he's joined again by longtime morning show partner and New Jersey 101.5 traffic reporter Bob Williams for the show.

The only problem? You've got to keep escalating to get attention. And some have gone as far as to wish the president harm.

"I think in some of their hearts, they are hoping there's a John Wilkes Booth out there, an unstable person," Jim says.

But the opposition isn't only in Hollywood. Jim finds some of what's going on in Congress downright shameful.

That's just part of what Jim takes on in the latest installment of his podcast. Check out the full episode to hear the rest. And Email Jim at
