The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), Judy Gold (@JewdyGold), Film Guy Matthew Weiss (@langdonboom) and Isabel Gillies (@isabelgillies) join us for the final Casual Friday of 2018!

On today's show: GoFundMe wall man says the wall is in our constitution. Benjamin P. Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), of Progressive Army and The North Star, joins us to discuss the latest news from Washington: Mattis resigns, Trump pulls out of Syria, and more. Stephen Miller goes full Stormfront (w/o spray hair), asks "how many people have to die?" before we build the wall. Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) joins us to wish this year good riddance. Trump explains why he needs wall funding in the spending budget: we'll be overrun by literal coyotes.

Film Guy Matthew (@langdonboom) and Isabel Gillies (@isabelgillies) join us to give us some movie recommendations for the break, including: Roma, Ozark, and Amour. The crew also recommends Thomas Sunkara documentary Land of Upright Men, Narcos, Escape at Dannemora, and late capitalist masterpiece Spring Breakers.

On the fun half: David Cicilline criticizes Kirstjen Nielsen for not knowing how many children have been separated at the border. Ted Lieu explains that immigrants commit less crime than native-born Americans. Louie Gohmert defends family separation, says it's what Mueller is doing to Manafort. Brian Kilmeade says Trump is "refounding ISIS." Plus, your calls and IMs!
