Sam and the crew discuss the most important stories of the week including a deep-dive into Trump's potential judicial nominees to fill Ruth Bader Ginsberg's seat.
On today's show: Trump asks how Ilhan Omar is running "our country." Rush Limbaugh excited about new justice says it could end Roe v. Wade and restore American values that made US exceptional. 2016: Amy Coney Barrett says inappropriate to replace a justice in an election year when it would "dramatically flip the balance of power." Asked about Democrats' charges that adding 9th justice before election will tear country apart, Trump says it won't, "We need 9 justices," makes more claims about election fraud.
On the fun half: Matt Stoller Twitter thread about Congress and the courts. One of three cops that killed Breonna Taylor charged with "wanton endangerment." Matt Gaetz wants Florida AG to investigate Bloomberg for poll tax "bribery." MONDAY: Tucker Carlson dismisses reports about RBG last wishes, says life is bigger than politics. TYT Michael Shure asks Georgia voters why they don't wear masks. Local PA news report on naked ballot ruling. Plus, your calls and IMs!
