10/3 The Sinking SS McCarthy & Trump’s Mountain Of Fraud

October 3, 2023

It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam & Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, they run through updates on Kevin McCarthy’s job, legal news around Trump, the CFPB, and Menendez, respectively, SAG-AFTRA negotiations, drug price negotiations, and the eviction crisis facing US children. Next, they dive a little deeper into Trump’s response to his developing fraud case in New York, coming out of the gates targeting the “corrupt” judge and AG, despite the case NOT being a jury trial, before they shift to Matt Gaetz throwing away his future to embarrass Kevin McCarthy (to everyone’s benefit), and the strategic response from Democrats to let them fight. Then, they parse through Ben Collins’ recent reporting connecting Elon Musk’s Twitter agenda to a far-right, anti-Semitic, transphobic, and anti-vax article from a former Trump speechwriter that put forward Musk’s crippling of the public square as a central tool to the future far-right successes.

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Stephen Crowder attempt to clamor back into the public consciousness through gutter-level racism, talk with Ark from New Jersey on trusting military aid to Ukraine (and elsewhere), and the Right Side Broadcasting hosts have some… interesting comments on liberal women. George calls in from the SAG-AFTRA strike, Aaron from Indianapolis discusses the attack on public education, and Astrid from New Brunswick explores the impact of parents’ rights protests. Lane from Nashfield takes on the various types of cooperatives, and the MR Crew covers the live vote on McCarthy’s future, plus, your calls and IMs!
