Benjamin P. Dixon joins us to discuss the latest news from Washington: The government shutdown, the power of the strike, Trump and abortion, Cory Booker’s campaign video, Kamala Harris’ criminal justice record, and wtf is Howard Schultz doing?

Virgil Texas, prolific gamer and co-host of Chapo Trap House, joins us. Steve Schmidt defends Schultz run. Mike Slater claims we need billionaires to save us from poverty. Amy Klobuchar proposes tax-savings nonsense for “apprenticeships,” education. (PSA: You don’t have to pay for an apprenticeship at a good union job.)
