Donald Trump's accounting firm fired him as a client, we talk about the ramifications for Trump. Then we delve into the latest right-wing lie about Hillary Clinton (they really can't get over her). And finally we talk about the latest regarding the Canadian truck protest. As always, if you'd like to hear us ad-free, and support our work, please con…
 
On today's show, more about that Canadian trucker protest, and how it's about to come to the US.

In today's show, we dig into Susan Collins', and the Republicans' overall, disappointment with Joe Biden for daring to nominate the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. You see, he's apparently dividing the country by not being racist. We also get into Trump's confession, the ongoing Joe Rogan Covid disinformation saga, and Michigan Republicans'…
 
In today's show, Cliff and I talk about Dan Bongino getting permanently banned from Twitter (sorry, not sorry), GOP Sen.

As always, if you'd like to hear us ad-free, and support our work, p…

We also discuss…
 
President Biden made Donald Trump the centerpiece of his speech to the nation on the anniversary of the January 6th Insurrection, making clear that Trump was responsible for the violent attempt to overthrow our government, and also that Biden was rededicating his presidency, at least in part, towards defending American democracy and the threat it f…
 
This week is the one-year anniversary of the January 6 Insurrection, when Trump supporters tried to violently overthrow our government.

On today's show, we discuss the latest weirdness from Republicans, in which Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee, led by Jim Jordan, are telling people that the Covid booster doesn't even work.

On today's show, we start with a discussion of GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn's bizarre origin story of how he met his wife, who he's now divorcing after only eight months.

In today's show, we discuss the rather odd turn of events by which Donald Trump is now the Covid vaccine's biggest booster, much to the chagrin of several of his top supporters. And we have a quick chat about Joe Manchin, flip-flopping again, and Steven Miller's shopping woes. To hear our shows ad-free, and support our work, please consider becomin…
 
On today's show, we actually discuss a number of topics, but focus primarily on Joe Manchin killing Biden's signature legislation, the Build Back Better bill.

On today's show, we spend a lot of time on two topics. First, GOP Congressman Devin Nunes quitting Congress in a matter of weeks, in order to become the CEO of Trump's new social media company.
