12/1 Flynn Flips & GOP Poised To Rob With Tax Deal w/ Cliff Schecter

December 1, 2017

Good morning. On today’s show, Cliff Schecter (@cliffschecter) joins us to talk about Michael Flynn flipping on Trump, Jared Kushner’s involvement in the Russia scandal, and the indefensible Republican tax bill, which is clearly a precursor to cutting social security and other services.

On the fun half: Matt Lauer was once quite creepy to Anne Hathaway, Trump can no longer use Kathryn Steinle’s death to attack undocumented immigrants, Jamie shares a personal story about how our country fails people with mental illness, and Paul Ryan dodges a question about Roy Moore.

Also: Jimmy Kimmel challenges Roy Moore to a talk about Christian values, Lindsey Graham contradicts himself, Sam addresses Mike Cernovich’s attempts to cook up a rape joke controversy, NRA TV baselessly attacks the CFPB, a caller educates Sam on twinks and other types of fellows, Alex Jones has a bizarrely specific fantasy about what liberal lesbians are into, and many callers express support for the show and disgust at the Republican tax bill.
