12/15 Republicans Close In on Tax Plan, Will Trump Fire Mueller?

December 15, 2017

Paul Ryan wants us to make more babies and Heather Digby Parton (@digby56) joins us to discuss the implications of the AL election, whether Trump is going to fire Mueller, Trump’s chances of impeachment, the Trump admin’s terrifying foreign policy, and police violence in America. Judy Gold then joins us for a Two Minutes Hate sesh on Omarosa, Roy Moore, Orrin Hatch, Israel, net neutrality, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders. A new Jimmy Reefercake song is played.

On the fun half: Dennis Miller tries out a new comedy routine on us, Trump wants to end the immigration lottery, Trump judicial nominee Matthew Petersen is hilariously under-qualified, the crew outlines leftist positions on gun control, Mindy calls in to commiserate about how fucked we are, and Mike Cernovich is the new Baked Alaska.

Cast: Sam Seder (@samseder), Michael Brooks (@_michaelbrooks) Matt Lech (@mattlech), Jamie Peck (@jamie_elizabeth), Brendan Finn (@BF1nn)
