6/2 Cliff Schecter: Trump’s Lasting Damage & Andy Kindler: the Twitter Wars

June 2, 2017

Jimmy Dore promotes conspiracy theories and Sam debunks them.

Cliff Schecter explains why Trump’s resentment and insecurity is behind stepping out of the Paris Accords. Why movement conservatives and Bannon’s politics are all about anger and resentment at all times. The United States falls back in the world and everyone else takes global warming seriously and all of the ways Trump and the Republicans are screwing America and the world.

Andy Kindler talks about waring on Twitter. Dennis Miller whines about Robert DeNiro and makes a Taxi Driver reference. Is Dennis Miller having a breakdown? Adam Carolla is making an incredibly stupid documentary. Jerry Seinfeld not funny and Andy has a new podcast.

On The Fun Half: Scott Pruitt references New York Times anti climate science writer Bret Stephens. Fighting inside the Left. Macron calls out Trump and your calls and IMs.

Cast: Sam Seder @samseder, Michael Brooks @_michaelbrooks, Matt Lech, @mattlech
