Sarah Huckabee Sanders is OUT and collusion is IN. Adam Conover, Megan Gailey, and Demi Adejuyigbe join Jon to break down the latest 2020 news, Trump's oddly staged interview with George Stephanopoulos, the insane pay gap in women's sports, our national housing crisis, and a new video game from George R. R. Martin, the world's greatest procrastinator. As Meryl once said on Big Little Lies, "I can't complain. Actually, I can."
Trump insults veterans on D-Day. Tucker Carlson thinks YouTube is the government. And Amy Klobuchar joins Jon on stage at the University of Minnesota to face the Queen for a Day gauntlet. Plus Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan, Guy Branum, and Ana Marie Cox help break down the week’s news, the magic of the state fair, and why parades are inherently gay in all the best ways. What a week. Thank you, Minneapolis!
The special counsel speaks and people can't believe their ears because they didn't use their eyes to READ THE REPORT. An architect of gerrymandering dies and his daughter discovers a trove of damning documents. Oh and aliens! Returning champions Josh Barro, Tawny Newsome, and Langston Kerman join Jon to break down the week's news, old bad tweets by 2020 candidates, and the very important case of The Verve v. The Rolling Stones.
Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor join Lovett for an update on Alabama's heinous new law, Trump's trade war, John Bolton's war war, and the Game of Throne's finale. Then we go to Austin for a fantastic live show with Shea Serrano, Emily Heller, and the Texas Tribune's Evan Smith to cover Texas's turn toward Democrats, Beto's habit of standing on things, plus some classic rants and a BBQ taste test. Thank you, Texas!
Pelosi takes on leftwing "exuberance" and offers her thoughts on Democratic strategy. Tucker Carlson is very mad that Facebook kicked off white supremacists. And Texas's own Julian Castro joins to discuss his presidential campaign and to face the "Queen for a Day" gauntlet. Live in Dallas, Congressman Colin Allred, activist Kristian Hernandez, and comedian Emily Heller join to break down everything from 2020 to Detective Pikachu before Lovett succumbs to a Tex-Mex overdose.
