  • Donald

    Menoza had not properly paid his taxes or some kind of tax fraud and he had to step down and not run for President.

    • Kyle Faber

      I think what happened was he was paid to make some speeches but he didn’t report the earnings, so he lost his position and won’t be running.

      • But that seems so random.

        • Charles Bikle

          According to IMDB, the actor who plays Mendoza is on the pilot episode of American Crime, so maybe they just wrote him out of the show due to contractual/scheduling conflicts ?

          Also, the filming for this show takes place in Baltimore, MD, so maybe it just wasn’t financially do-able for the actor to stay in MD and miss out on work on the west coast ?

  • Donald

    Love your Back to the Future reference. LOL.

  • Keith Dixon

    I will never ever get tired of Rob doing Frank Underwood impressions. “I pick Tim Tebow as my running mate” (LMAO)

    • I love to do it, I hope it’s not annoying.

    • I’m gonna work on my Donald Blythe for season 4!

    Very underwhelming season so far. It’s like you’re still
    waiting for the good stuff to start every episode.

    Just for Doug, Rob should do a podcast (“Today’s street cam footage is over, but we’re just getting started here on Street Cam Post-Show Recap and now, here’s a guy who never slows down at a yellow light…Rob Cesternino”)
