12/4 Republicans Lose, So They Mount Coups w/ Ari Berman

December 4, 2018

Good morning everyone, on today’s show Mother Jones writer Ari Berman (@AriBerman) joins us.

First, Joy Behar and Meghan McCain get into a shouting match after Joy suggest HW Bush was better on the environment than Trump.

Then, Ari Berman outline the desperate measure the GOP is using to hold on to their footholds in the Midwest and the South. How the media is unprepared for the nakedly anti-democratic nature of the GOP. The almost certainly criminal election fraud undertaken by North Carolina republicans, collecting and trashing absentee ballots of black voters. Why Republicans are just getting started in places like Ohio. Are democrats conscious of the severity of the GOP threat to democracy and do they have a plan to combat it?

On the fun half – Is the GOP’s anti-democracy agenda to complex for people to follow? Sam Seder assesses his performance in the 2018 election and what it means for him vs. Virgil Texas in 2022. Wisconsin Republicans are anti-democratic criminals. Steve Scalise repeats lie about ten terrorists crossing the border every day. Trudeau calls Trump “Donald.” Gorka calls Khashoggi a close friend of Bin Laden. Pamela Anderson has the last word on the Paris Riots. Plus your calls and IMs!
