1/10 Casual Friday: Cliff Schecter & Richard Kind

January 10, 2014

Cliff Schecter explains why the TPP trade deal is getting resurrected by the Obama Administration and Congress, why trade deals are a fraud, why they are all about corporate deregulation and how House Democrats fight back against Fast Track trade authority . Also Rachel Maddow proposes a brilliant new theory of who the Christie Administration was punishing with the Fort Lee traffic jams, who is the redacted name in the Christie emails? And why Christie might get indicted.

Actor Richard Kind joined the program from Bed Bath and Beyond, what is on Richard’s shopping list, what awards Richard has won, why Richard does not want actors leading the actors union and why he loved The Wolf of Wall Street.

And your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
