The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Virgil Texas (@virgiltexas ), co-host of Chapo Trap House and co-author of The Chapo Guide to Revolution: a Manifesto Against Logic, Facts and Reason, joins us.

On today's show: Pete Hegseth can't stand these damn identity politics. An entire Fox News segment dedicated to exploring Pete Hegseth's genealogical identity.

Virgil Texas of Chapo Trap House joins us for some wonkish talk of the 2020 field. Beto's appeal to voters What's the deal with #GravelGang? How about Andrew Yang? How much do the Democratic primary debates matter? What are Bernie's challenges at this point? How much does he need to win by to actually win?

Trump fumes and calls Fox's Maria Bartiromo "fake news" for grilling him on his attacks on John McCain. The MR crew is visited by a spirit that gives us insights into Trump one could only gain from another dimension.

On the fun half: Trump says Democratic candidates not attending AIPAC are anti-Jewish. Hegseth says candidates who skip AIPAC "may be anti-Semitic." One of Melania's platforms for her "be best" campaign is "opioid abuse." Trump explains how administration will cut off funding to colleges that de-platform right wing guests. Trump says he's been witnessing free speech problems for a long time, says he loves loans. Virgil recalls his run-in with the Yang Gang. Plus, your calls and IMs!
