The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Digby (@digby56) and comedian and prank call master Chris James (@theCJS) join us for Casual Friday.

On today's show: Biden's teeth fall out.

Digby (@digby56) of Salon.com joins us to break down the Democratic primary debates. The Democratic Party's move to the left. Biden's awful reparations answer. Jorge Ramos asks Bernie why he won't call Maduro a dictator. Beto explains why AR-15 will be a mandatory buyback. NRA Magazine in 1962: AR-15 "for military purposes." Jamie gives her take on Beto's framing.

Chris James (@theCJS), comedian and host of the Not Even A Show show on YouTube, joins us to talk pranking right wing media, including: Curt Schilling, JJ McCartney, Roger Stone on Infowars, and the deplorable who shut down his whole call-in operation afterwards.

On the fun half: Warren and Bernie explains the false choice of taxes vs. cost of healthcare. Biden says taxes will go up under Medicare for All. Warren and Bernie ask who likes insurance companies and paying premiums. Biden explains how his Medicare Choice opt in would work. Julian Castro responds to Biden's opt in, asks "Did you just forget what you said minutes ago?" Trump shares dystopian plan to "clean up" homelessness.

Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop

TODAY'S HEADLINES:

During last night’s democratic debate in Houston, Joe Biden got roughed up so badly the poor guy’s teeth fell out!

Meanwhile, The Supreme Court’s Chief Justice John Roberts reportedly changed his vote at the last minute to keep Trump’s notorious census citizenship question.

And lastly, Trump’s ruthless war on the environment continues as the administration announces the repeal of Obama’s Clean Water Act.

And our QUICKER QUICKIES HEADLINES:

The Republican-controlled Senate committee on Thursday rejected Democratic attempts to cut Trump’s latest border wall request and prevent him from again funding the project without congressional approval.

Politico reports the U.S. Air Force has lodged crews at Donald Trump’s Scotland resort up to 40 times since 2015. 

Although the number does not indicate how many of those trips occurred after Trump became president, crews of up to 40 people have stayed at the resort in at least four visits since September 2018.

Gregory Cheadle, the black man President Trump once described at a rally as “my African American,” has decided to leave the Republican party and run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives as an independent in 2020, according to PBS NewsHour.
