Sam and Emma host former Labor Secretary Robert Reich (@RBReich) to discuss his latest book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It, plus his take on the Biden administration's efforts so far and his assessment of how the 46th president has stacked his administration. Democracy vs oligarchy. The advent and subsequent rollback of antitrust. Are the oligarchic tendencies baked into the capitalist system?
On the fun half: Tucker says he looked for Qanon online and couldn't find it. Recently canceled CPAC speaker, Young Pharoah, says Matt Schlaap should also be canceled for previous comments on Jews if the same standards applied (Pharoah agrees w/ Schlaap's previous comments.) Poll: GOP voters care most about illegal immigration, support for police. Asked about Cuomo's role in nursing home deaths, WH spox Psaki avoids questions and says administration works with all governors. Mitch McConnell suggests Democrats will go it alone on Covid relief, says the spending is unnecessary at this moment. Jimmy Dore goes on Tucker, blames Democrats for lack of Covid relief, defends people voting for Trump, criticizes second impeachment. Plus, your calls and IMs!
