Warning: John Dybvig does try to contain himself, but there are a few swear-words used in his piece, so listen to this week's Letter from America at your own risk.

First up this week, John and RadioLIVE's Graeme Hill salute the good bits of Senator John McCain’s life and character.

Despite being known as a moderate Republican, John says he considered McCain "a rock solid politician" with his ability to counter his own party. 

But John doesn’t shy from what he believes was McCain's biggest career mistake - his former running mate, Sarah Palin.

McCain was a six-time senator, son of an admiral and a prisoner of the Vietnam War. 

John and Graeme later have a go at a "bad bad bad week for Trump".

John lines up the casualties from Trump’s former staff  - but don’t get too excited if you think it’s any closer to impeachment or removal from office.

He takes a special look at Allen Wiselberg - the CEO of the Trump foundation.

He knows where every nickel and dime has gone.

They also touch on the recent claims that Trump has a child with one of his former house keepers.

Also, don’t miss a round-up of the stupidest talk from American politics this week.

Listen to the full audio with John Dybvig above.
