Well, President Trump didn’t really rise to the occasion this week, but neither did many Democrats, and the growing notion that every Trump voter is complicit in his every questionable act is beginning to take hold of everyone to the left of the GOP. Is this politically wise? Is it morally sensible? What consequences will it have? Give a listen.

Two mass shootings in two cities over the course of 12 hours this weekend sharpened the nation’s focus on gun violence and the dangerous ideologies motivating the shooters.

Biden and Harris and Warren—oh my! We break it all down for you on this podcast, in which we wonder at Kristen Gillibrand’s strange insistence that fairness would demand privileged kids get shot by cops, Andrew Yang wanting to give you $1,000 a month, and Bill DeBlasio just being a jerk. Give a listen.

Democratic Debate #1 takes up most of the time on today’s podcast, in which we ask: Who was worse, Tim Ryan (who) or Beto O’Rourke (answer to trivia question in 2022)? Did Elizabeth Warren do what she had to do or did she fall short? And is Tulsi Gabbard the new voice of American foreign policy arguing that we weren’t attacked by the Taliban on 9/11? We also take up the Supreme Court’s decision in the gerrymandering case. Give a listen.
