The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam hosts Dr. Michael Osterholm, Principal Investigator and Director of the Minnesota Center of Excellence for Influenza Research and Surveillance, joins Sam to discuss the Trump administration's current plan for reopening America and what we can expect for the rest of 2020. Dr. Osterholm lays out the risk of opening the economy, overwhelming our healthcare system, and why covid19 is different from previous infectious diseases. Dr. Osterholm says that this virus will march on against any mitigation we offer; therefore, we need to construct the best plan to prepare to return to work. What ways can we bring back society? Things like baseball without crowds could help craft a society that allows us to move with the virus. The lack of federal leadership has been a fundamental problem in the age of covid19. There needs to be a Marshall Plan for testing and PPP, something plaguing our country's response. Sam and Dr. Osterholm conclude their conversation discussing best practices to keep from spreading the virus.

And in the Fun Half: a binary choice between Biden and Trump, Mike Pence is protected by God--but what about the rest of us, Dave Rubin makes a breakthrough, the latest conservative fury over a removed YouTube video from doctors who say covid19 is the flu, an extended discussion on where the left needs to focus its energy, plus your calls and IMs!
