December 4, 2020

Sam hosts Brandon Sutton (@prettybadlefty) of The Discourse Podcast and comedian Francesca Fiorentini (@franifio) to discuss the biggest stories of the week including Trump’s last stand, what’s happening in Georgia, and more.

On today’s show: Kilmeade and Ainsley complain about Biden mask policy, says everyone already follows mask rules.

Brandon Sutton (@prettybadlefty) of The Discourse Podcast joins Sam and Emma to discuss the biggest stories of the week including Trump’s last stand, what’s happening in Georgia, and more. Asked why she’s on board with a smaller coronavirus package, Speaker Pelosi cites the “game-changer” of vaccine development and Biden’s election. Katie Porter reframes how we should talk about “stimulus”: “it’s not stimulus to feed yourself.” Obama’s dumb criticism of the movement to defund the police.

Comedian Francesca Fiorentini (@franifio) joins the program to talk about the news and check in on some of our friends. Team Trump shares video of supposed ballot planting, Georgia journalist points out there’s a Sec of State official monitoring everything. After talking about Trump election lawsuits, Rubin pivots hard into being ready for the revolution, motherfuckers. House passes bill to decrim pot: Which Dems voted against it? Brian Kilmeade announces that he’s on Parler and might leave all other social media if it goes well. Tim Pool compares Trump’s refusal to concede to Hillary waiting an evening to concede, Destiny pushes back, Tim digs in. Tim Pool pivots to culture, says he’s chilling, telling younger generation it’s okay to not cancel each other. Plus, your calls and IMs.
