8/1 Biden, Trump, 2024, & New Student Debt Relief Live

August 1, 2023

It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on 2024 Presidential polling, Hunter Biden’s newest nothing allegations, Donald Trump’s various legal woes, LA’s hotel strike, Oklahoma public education policy, Phoenix’s destructive heatwave, and the Biden administration’s Student Debt plan 2.0. Next, they watch Bryan Cranston and Ilana Glazer tackle the ridiculous inhumanity of the studio executives amidst both the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, before diving a little deeper into public opinion on Joe Biden heading into the final 12 months of the election cycle, and why Biden’s failure to pass much of his agenda with Build Back Better might come back to haunt him. They also dive deeper into the details of Biden’s brand-new Student Loan relief program, the non-revelations around Hunter Biden, and correct the record on the Lab Leak discussion with Ryan Grim.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma tackle the conservative obsession with identity politics, as Vivek Ramaswamy dances around the existence of institutional racism and Malika from Raleigh tackles the genuine violence in pushing progress for marginalized people aside. Sam and Emma also discuss RFK ramping up his zionist rhetoric, and Soren from Minneapolis parses through another anti-trans grift attempt in the world of sports, plus, your calls and IMs!
