6/9 Cliff Schecter: Comey Testify’s & Republicans Move to Destroy Finance & Health Care & Isabel Gillies

June 9, 2017

Labor makes big gains in the UK and Tories build a radical right coalition.

Cliff Schecter explains the downfall of John McCain and his bizarre performance at the Comey hearings. Are the Republicans now the “treason” party. Donald Trump’s dangerous instability and why all Republicans cover for him. The Senate moves to destroy health care. Why Republicans will always come together to gut health care and give the rich money. Susan Collins is a fake moderate. A Parliamentary problem for Republicans? And Zach Carter explains authoritarian instincts and why Labor performed well.

Isabel Gillies talks about why James Comey becoming sex symbol. Why Republicans are absolutely never going to impeach Trump. Paul Ryan excuses Trump demanding loyalty from James Comey because he is new to government and Isabel tells us to watch Homecoming King on Netflix.
