3/16 Our Social Distancing Future w/ MR Crew

March 16, 2020

Sam breaks down last night’s debate and what to expect moving forward as the Majority Report does its part to flatten the curve with social distancing practices and telework. Sam discusses plans to move Majority Report production to his satellite studio and shares precautions listeners should take to help prevent the spread of the virus. Before leaving the MR studio for the foreseeable future, Sam examines the Trump administration’s inaction and its 2018 decision to disband the NSC pandemic response team. On this freebie Monday, in the second half of the show, Sam recaps last night’s Democratic debate between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Sam explains why Sanders should have capitalized on Biden’s decision to attack Sanders “super PACs,” none of which the former Vice President could name. And why progressives need to start asking Biden about the “new normal” why his platform of returning to Obama-era policy is no longer possible in the wake of this pandemic.
