It's News Day Tuesday! Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Donald Trump’s widening lead heading into the New Hampshire primaries, the Supreme Court’s decision on the Supremacy clause and Texas’ border policy, Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza, the US and UK’s continuing strikes against Yemen, the US’ growing labor consciousness, Senate policy, and developments in the US tax game, before watching Nikki Haley hold those darn Media Trumpers accountable on Fox and Friends. Next, they parse through Shawn Fain’s recent statements calling for preparations for a General Strike in 2028 (with an apt callback to the Reagan era), and explore the Democrats’ minimal gains from their ongoing capitulation to the GOP’s radical immigration policy. Next, they get into updates out of Gaza, including Israel’s complete decimation of Gaza’s infrastructure and cultural institutions, their flailing military campaign, and why the American people are so “obsessed” with this issue, also touching on Netanyahu’s ongoing battle with the families of Israeli hostages. Wrapping up, Sam and Emma tackle Biden and the UK’s ongoing battle with the Yemeni Houthis, the absurd and destructive futility of the tactic, and tackle Israel’s recent meeting with the EU over their plans for a prison island for Palestinians.
And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Joe Rogan kindly platform an up-and-coming content creator (it’s just him falling for fake news again), John from San Antonio calls in to discuss Greg Abbott’s rejection of the Supreme Court’s recent decision on Texas’ border wall and walks through some previews of state-level Democratic primaries. They also reflect on Nancy Mace’s endorsement of Donald Trump, and Dave Rubin defends people’s right to spread blatant lies about him as long as it’s fascist, plus, your calls and IMs!
