9/26 Biden’s Historic Picket, The Menendez Line, & More

September 26, 2023

It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam is back with Emma to break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, they run through updates on Biden’s decision to join the UAW on the picket line, Trump’s anti-union event in Michigan, the Supreme Court’s rejection of Alabama’s gerrymander, Kevin McCarthy’s crisis in the House, Bob Menendez’s corruption, climate catastrophe, and student loans. Next, they parse through the malpractice in mainstream news coverage of Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s respective industry visits in Michigan today, and touch on updates from the strike, before diving into the impact of the Supreme Court’s decision on Alabama’s racial gerrymander and why this Court is still no friend of voting rights. Next, they chat about Bob Menendez’s rebirthed corruption and why Chuck Schumer refuses to address it (like he did with Al Franken), before wrapping up with the House GOP’s continuing meltdown.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma talk with Sarah from Illinois about the indifference toward culture war in much of the military, watch various killer climate actions, and Gumby from Topeka calls in about the theoretical conclusion to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The Canadian Government accidentally gives a rousing applause to a Nazi, Jackson Hinkle goes to LARPing camp in Russia, and Grey from Virginia assesses Donald Trump’s flight risk, plus, your calls and IMs!
