Sam and Emma recap the top stories of the week including the voting rights cases before the Supreme Court and GOP efforts to further restrict voting rights across the country.
On today's show: Biden says US will have enough supply to vaccinate every adult by end of May. What's in the Covid relief bill? The Strand moves Cuomo’s book from "notable" to “history” shelf. Supreme Court seems ready to uphold racist voting restrictions.
On the fun half: Cuomo says he supports a woman’s right to come forward, he didn’t feel his actions were inappropriate. Debating HR 1, Kevin McCarthy says voting rights debate is like canceling Dr. Seuss. Glenn Beck declares the era of freedom in America over now that Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potatohead are canceled. Idaho Republican votes against using federal funds for early education, says it makes it 'easier for mothers to come out of the home.' Plus, your IMs.
