Facebook is still a target for election interference. Giuliani is not making much sense. And even the “feel good” segments on local news are secretly sad now. Plus we talk about wildfires and climate change, Manafort’s expansive wardrobe, Tom Cruise dangling from a helicopter, and more. Lucia Aniello, Fatima Asghar, and Andrew Ti join Jon to break down the week’s news and the dedication of certain movie stars who are the perfect height.

And we're back! Wisconsin Republicans reject the will of the voters, Mueller closes in on Individual 1, Fox News launches a new streaming service, Lou Dobbs loses the plot, and the Women's Center for Creative Work's Community Chorus join us LIVE to sing a brand new holiday song about Obamacare open enrollment and Trump's efforts to sabotage it.

We’re days away from the midterms and Republicans are doubling down on racist fear mongering as their closing argument.

Trump uses the fear of innocent refugees to rally his base. Fox News explains the motivation behind the migrant caravan.

Erin Ryan is joined by Nicole Byer, Emily Heller and Andrew Ti to break down the week in news.
