November 23, 2020

Sam hosts Will Bunch (@Will_Bunch), columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer, to discuss his recent piece “How Trump became all of America’s Frank Rizzo,” and the potential of a perpetual Trump candidacy.

On today’s show: Sidney Powell says she’s going to blow up Georgia because of “dominion scam.” Trump campaign releases statement distancing itself from Sidney Powell’s lawsuits.

Sam hosts Will Bunch (@Will_Bunch), columnist at the Philadelphia Inquirer, to discuss his recent piece “How Trump became all of America’s Frank Rizzo,” and the potential of a perpetual Trump candidacy. As Philly residents know, Frank Rizzo was a notoriously racist and authoritarian police commissioner who served two terms as mayor in the 1970s and became a permanent avatar of white aggrievement politics. Bunch explains how Trump and Rizzo are similar and looks to the past for a blueprint of where Trump may go from here.

Trump supporters take GOP to task for not challenging the election results at Philadelphia protest.

On the fun half: Michigan House speaker explains why he met with Trump and what might happen to election certification. Public Citizen president explains how much public funding helped create the Moderna & Pfizer corona virus vaccines. Texas governor says it’s un-American for Oregon to “legalize” heroin and cocaine but not have turkey on Thanksgiving. Dave Rubin comes out as no longer liberal, has no problem with conservative label, calls himself a “new conservative.” Dave Rubin says if Powell and Giuliani are making this up they’re insane, but he doesn’t think that’s the case.
