David Waldman and very special tri-weekly guest Greg Dworkin focus our attention on the issues coming up this week—and better yet, put some distance on last week’s crap. A 17-year-old Muslim girl was kidnapped and beaten to death. A van plowed into a crowd of worshippers near a mosque in north London. But, you know, they’re Muslims... and, that SOB talked on that POS show, on Fathers Day, no less. Public pressure helped, but won’t undo the damage done. Here’s a clarifying fable about the problem with interviewing evil.

Speaking of damage done, let’s revisit what really happened in the 2016 election, shall we? The House Russia investigators want to bring in Trump’s digital director. The Trump team prepared for failure, but relied on anger, fear, bigotry, hatred and despair: A win-win! This Trump house of cards could fall under the slightest pressure, so boy is the Georgia special election important.

Not to alienate any subsection of society... but rural America did lift Trump to the presidency. There is a deep cultural divide between rural and urban centers. In rural America, there are fewer immigrants and less tolerance. In fact, racial intolerance is part of the culture, and economy. They believe every fight Trump has is for them, so every fight they have is for him.

Armado shows up at the end of the show to discuss whether trademark law is the venue for social change. (nope)
