The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Alex Pareene (@pareene) and Film Guy Matthew Weiss (@langdonboom) join us.

On today's show: Meet the Press just making stuff up about Bloomberg and his potential campaign. Impeachment update: what are the political effects of this timeline? Pete Hegseth freshman dorm bong philosophy: "Trump is the whistleblower." Trump's defense against whistleblower accusations: completely inconsistent, really bad. Just what does Mike Bloomberg think he's doing?

Film Guy Matthew (@langdonboom) joins us to talk about what he's been up to and recommend a film: "Heaven Knows What," the 2014 film by the Safdie brothers based on the true story of a homeless drug user in NYC.

On the fun half: Steven Menashi squirms on LGBTQ record during Senate confirmation hearing. Morning Joe says Medicare For All is the worst political idea he's ever heard. The "my father" heavyweight title showdown: Don Jr. vs Meghan McCain. Ben Shapiro says left is too quick to say all of American history is brutal, compares slavery to family squabble.
