Today on the show: racial justice, labor & international activist Bill Fletcher, Jr. (@BillFletcherJr) joins us to discuss the passing of Fidel Castro and what the uncertain future portends for the left. The time Bill met with Fidel Castro. Castro's charisma, and Castro on issues of race in present-day Cuba. A full accounting of Fidel Castro's legacy, in contrast to elite media portrayal. Castro's primary crime as one of challenging property relations. Cuba's support of national liberation movements. Bill's case for optimism and case that the "new majority" is here to stay. The economic anxieties of Trump's white nationalist vote.
On the fun half - Ted Cruz with a graceless subject change in order to not talk about Trump's pathological lying, Castro's meeting with Nelson Mandela, Trump doesn't care about conflicts of interest, Rick Perry and Vanilla Ice deliver crushing blow against War on Christmas.
