Alex Pareene (@pareene) of the New Republic joins Sam to discuss the week's biggest stories, including: Mitch McConnell and the GOP's relentless — and potentially unstoppable — quest to capture the judicial branch for decades to come. The technically legal methods Trump and the GOP will use to steal the election. The Democratic Party's uneasy relationship with its base.
Comedian David Feldman (@David_Feldman_) joins Sam to discuss what campaign strategy the Democrats should pursue: promise nothing and don't spook the voters. Everyone just needs to chill out, all right?
