John Fetterman and Symone Sanders-Townsend on House Chaos (Live from DC!)

In This Episode

Senator John Fetterman, Virginia State Senate candidate Jennifer Carroll Foy, and chef José Andrés join Jon, Jon, Tommy, Dan, and guest host Symone Sanders-Townsend live in Washington, DC! Chaos reigns in the House of Representatives as Jim Jordan tries (and fails) to become Speaker. President Biden gives an Oval Office address on democracy and the importance of supporting Israel and Ukraine. And as the rest of the GOP primary candidates flounder, Donald Trump bounces between the courtroom and the golf course. Senator Fetterman gets real about mental health, Andrés ranks Tik Tok food fads, and, Jon, and Tommy announce their new book, coming in June.
