10/24 News Day! Ceasefire NOW; THIRD Trump Lawyer Flips; Argentina Elections w/ Jacob Sugarman

October 24, 2023

It’s News Tuesday! But first, Emma speaks with Jacob Sugarman, lifestyle editor at the Buenos Aires Herald, to discuss the recent results in the Argentinian presidential race, which is now heading into a runoff. First, Emma runs through updates on the growing death toll in Gaza, the release of Hamas’ hostages, Donald Trump’s legal and electoral woes, UAW labor action, the impeachment of Joe Biden, the first publicly funded religious charter school, and Bob Menendez’s complete lack of guilt, before parsing through recent statement from both State Department martyr Josh Paul and AOC on the US’ failure to hold Israel to account with the Leahy law. Jacob Sugarman then joins, parsing through the lukewarm good news coming out of Argentina, with the center-left’s Sergio Massa beating out far-right dark horse candidate Javier Milei and pushing the presidential election to a runoff, before stepping back to analyze what so particular about Milei’s brand of “anti-establishment” politics, anarcho-capitalism, and general bigotry, and why it has won him his base of young Argentinian men. After contextualizing Milei’s rise within the ongoing economic crisis facing Argentinians today, which has seen years of skyrocketing poverty, debt, and inflation, Sugarman walks Emma through the alternatives to Milei’s anarcho-capitalism, namely Sergio Massa, before wrapping up with the dangers of historical revisionism among the far-right and their junta connections. Emma also touches on the myth of a crimewave, the House GOP’s Speakership chaos, and dances on the grave of an enemy.

And in the Fun Half: Emma watches Fox & Friends go crazy for a ground invasion of Gaza, before parsing through the Times of Israel’s own assessment of such an operation, also talking with Ross from North Carolina on gameplan toward funding Ukraine, and watching Cenk Uygur the moral case for Palestinians on Piers Morgan. Timor from Ontario dives into the chaos in Canadian politics over Israel-Palestine divides, and the MR Crew watches speeches by Donald Trump on being Nelson Mandela, and Nelson Mandela on terrorism and Israel, plus, your calls and IMs!
