1981- Mueller Time Approaches & Democratic Wrangling Begins w/ Benjamin Dixon & Film Guy Matthew Weiss
On today's show: Sam sets a right winger straight re: his "suicide may be the only option" comments. Kid Rock says we can disagree and still be cordial but "screw that Joy Behar bitch."
Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon) joins us to discuss the latest news from Washington. Updates on the Mueller investigation: is Mueller setting a perjury trap for Trump? Joe Crowley undermined Barbara Lee's campaign for House Democratic caucus chair on his way out...sour grapes, much? And Chuck Schumer continues to be hopeless.

Film Guy Matthew (@langdomboom) joins us for some Casual Friday movie talk. The crew discusses Matt's master list of film picks, which can be found here. Can the crew still watch Woody Allen movies without feeling grossed out? Matt's pick for today: "Manlife," a documentary about a quasi-socialist movement that began in the Great Depression and eventually turned into a creepy religious cult. Take note, DSA.
On the fun half: Trump on Cohen's "Moscow Project" plea: "I was allowed to do whatever I wanted." Laura Loomer wears a Star of David, handcuffs herself to the NY Twitter office because she's being persecuted...for her racist tweets. Dave Rubin and Tucker Carlson say it's wrong for the left to claim Rudolph is about bigotry. Sam kicks off this year's War on Christmas with a clip from an old CNN appearance. Obama now wants credit for boom in US oil production: "That was me, people." Paul Ryan whines about "ballot harvesting" in midterms.
