On today's show: NOV 17: Dianne Feinstein asks the same question twice in a row to Twitter CEO.
Sara Nelson (@FlyingWithSara), International President of the Association of Flight Attendants, joins Sam to discuss the need for Coronavirus relief and how labor organizing can help the left achieve its goals. Where the union's priorities currently lie and the leverage airline workers have. A critique of business unionism. How to push the Biden administration to give concessions to labor.
Erika Andiola (@erikaandiola), Chief Advocacy Officer at RAICES, joins the program to discuss potential Biden immigration policy items. What Biden will probably do via executive order (DACA, taskforce to reunite families) and what he will have to be pressured into (dismantling Obama's deportation machine). How the Democrats get immigration policy wrong and what leverage immigrants have.
On the fun half: Half of Americans don't know that Facebook is not a news gathering agency. Biden says he won't act on police reform because of GOP portrayal of Democratic position, say it'll hurt Georgia races, pivots to explaining how Democrats should govern, says they shouldn't question motives. Biden uses assault rifle strawman argument to explain to civil rights leaders why he won't go all in with executive orders. Louie Gohmert's tooth falls out during press conference. Conservative Christian host says Barron will become President after Trump serves out terms. A call from a newly radicalized person who used to work for TP USA. Plus, your calls and IMs.
