November 30, 2017

Today, writer and editor David Klion (@DavidKlion) joins us to discuss how the left should orient itself to the Trump/Russia investigation. The thriving ecosystem of russia conspiracy theory and disinformation. What’s ‘real’ with the Russia story with regard to both ‘collusion’ and money-laundering? How the real story should be focused on the anti-democratic nature of global neoliberalism.

On the fun half – Joe Scarborough is finally saying Trump has dementia, Roy Moore blames pedophilia accusations on leftists and LGBT people, The Federalist says vote for him, Trump is easily distracted by his own personality while discussing tax policy and nuclear war, and your calls and IMs!
