2/27 Bhaskar Sunkara: Perez Beats Ellison and Marxism vs. Trumpism

February 27, 2017

Bhaskar Sunkara (@SunraySunray), founder of “Jacobin” magazine, joins us on the show today. Where we stand after 1 month of the radical President Bannon. How the GOP retweets nazis while democrats shy away from embracing socialist democracy. What it means when Bannon and Norquist reference Lenin. Tom Perez and the DNC’s atrociously limited imagination.

On the fun half – Republicans get reamed at town halls across the country, Seb Gorka gets called a charlatan, more on Tom Perez, Reince Priebus argues with Chris Wallace, Mnuchin, and Grassley and Rubio get castigated at a town hall.
