DeRay, Clint, Sam and Brittany talk Drake and Pusha T, Black women voters, and the many deaths following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. US Congresswoman Yvette Clarke (NY-9) joins DeRay to talk about the future of the Party, immigration issues under Trump, and being one of only the eleven House members total who didn’t vote for the Blue Lives Matter bill.
Guest – Congresswoman Yvette Clarke:
Trump has no plan to reunite the children he separated from their parents, Republicans in Congress struggle to pass an immigration bill, and Democrats announce a new plan to mobilize young people, Africans Americans, Latinos, and other voters who don’t always turn out for midterm elections. Then Stephanie Teatro talks to Dan and Symone Sanders about her work as the co-director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugees Rights Coalition.
Recorded live at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Jon is joined by Symone Sanders, Liliana Seguro, and Benjamin Sawyer to break down the week's news. Trump shifts, but families are still separated. Fox & Friends gets a little too honest about who deserves compassion. Kellyanne Conway faces an unlikely critic. And sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between a Trump stooge and a villain from X-Men. Anyway, awful week, but a great show at an amazing place.
Trump partially reverses his family separation policy with an executive order that leads to more chaos and confusion, and Republicans take another run at repealing Obamacare and gutting Medicare. Then Democratic candidate for governor Stacey Abrams talks to Tommy and Dan about her historic candidacy and how she plans to turn Georgia blue.
