On today's show: Trump says Somalis have ruined communities, promises crackdown on refugees and immigrants.
Benjamin Dixon (@BenjaminPDixon), host of the Benjamin Dixon Show, joins us to break down the news. Support for impeachment is rising among voters and the Democratic Party establishment is finally on board. What does it mean for strategy going forward? Trump abandons the Kurds in Syria; US and Russia veto UN Security Council's statement on Turkey's invasion of Syria.
Comedian and filmmaker Tim Heidecker (@timheidecker) joins us to discuss his forthcoming movie, 'Mister America.' In this absurdist political mockumentary, Heidecker plays a bumbling failson who narrowly escapes a murder charge stemming from his EDM festival, then runs to unseat the San Bernadino county DA who tried to put him in prison. Sam then takes a walk down memory lane and plays the high concept trailer for his 1997 film, "Who's the Caboose?"
On the fun half: Rand Paul gets laughed at on "The View" when discussing economic inequality. Ben Shapiro rails against public schools teaching about gay rights. Bernie addresses our healthcare system, taking on everybody in 'History Is On Our Side' Instagram video. Durbin questions Neomi Rao, Trump's pick for DC circuit court, on her past writings about race. PG&E blackout map. Trump says he's not corrupt like Biden because he doesn't care about money, and "no one has ever heard the word emoluments before." Trump attacks Ilhan Omar as 9-11 minimizer, anti-Semite. Plus, your calls and IMs!
