Last year, the late, great Dick Gregory came in to the “Ed Lover Show” studio. He and Ed Lover had a fascinating conversation that spanned many topics.

He also explains why it’s ridiculous to think that the President will be trusted alone to knowing the nuclear codes, rather than the generals in the military.
