10/16 Dueling Town Halls, Feinstein’s Gotta Go & How to Push Biden Left w/ Benjamin Dixon & David Rees

October 16, 2020

Sam hosts Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of “The Benjamin Dixon Show” to discuss the week’s biggest stories including the ACB hearings, dueling presidential town halls, and more. Then Sam hosts David Rees (@david_rees) of the Election Profit Makers podcast to discuss betting on political futures and raising money for voting rights.

On today’s show: Sheldon Whitehouse tells Republicans they have shot their credibility with “because we can” actions. Dianne Feinstein thanks Lindsey Graham for a great hearing for ACB nomination.

Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) of “The Benjamin Dixon Show” joins Sam to discuss the week’s top stories, including the ACB hearings, dueling presidential town halls, and the recent Politico story about progressives pushing Biden not to appoint a bunch of corporate lobbyists to his administration if he wins. Biden highlights destruction of Brazilian rainforest’s impact on climate change, carbon capture. Asked about Q-Anon and whether or not he disavows QAnon, Trump says he doesn’t know about it. On healthcare, Trump says Obamacare “not good” and he’s going to provide something better.

David Rees (@david_rees), of the Election Profit Makers podcast, joins Sam along with his co-hosts Jon Kimball (@jonkimball) and Starlee Kine (@StarleeKine) to talk about their political media/betting operation. As pundits, they put their money where their mouths are and bet on their predictions, and 2020 has been quite eventful for them.

On the fun half: “15 minutes that ended:” Trump celebrates marshals executing Michael Reinoehl killing, again. Laura Ingraham and Steve Cortes call Joe Biden Mr Rogers, compares Trump townhall to The Wire. Rudy Giuliani losing it over Hunter Biden emails on Fox and Friends, talks about Hunter’s drug use and sex life. Ultimate cuck Chris Christie says there’s no downside to wearing masks. A caller asks the crew to define capitalism, socialism, and communism. Plus, your calls and IMs!
