11/13 The Second Wave Approaches w/ Digby

November 13, 2020

Sam hosts Heather “Digby” Parton (@digby56) to discuss this week’s surging coronavirus cases and Trump’s absence from his job as President of the United States.

On today’s show: Rand Paul says people who’ve already had covid should go out and celebrate because they’re immune (they’re not).

Sam hosts Heather “Digby” Parton (@digby56) to discuss this week’s surging coronavirus cases and Trump’s absence from his job as President of the United States. Digby on Ron Klain, Biden’s pick for chief of staff: not afraid to confront Repubs, not actively hostile to the left? The Democrats’ failure, once again, to pin the bad stuff on the GOP.

Alabama Senator elect Tommy Tuberville says three branches of government are House, Senate, and Executive.

On the fun half: Justice Alito at FedSoc says SCOTUS same-sex marriage rulings crush free speech. Alito says Dems’ threats to expand court are like “countries governed by power not laws.” Alex Berenson says a lot of people have died from covid, but most of them were old and sick already. Why now’s the time to try to move your Congress Rep on something, and how to do it. White Republican Dan Browning gets caught making up a gay black friend. Plus, your calls and IMs!
