Sam hosts Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC), Justice Correspondent at the Nation magazine, to discuss the Amy Coney Barrett SCOTUS nomination, our conservative judiciary future, and what the left can do to fight it.
On today's show: Brian Kilmeade says Trump missed huge layup when he did not unequivocally renounce white supremacy. Fox and Friends guests can't say why Trump didn't condemn white supremacy. Trump won't condemn white supremacists, Proud Boys stand by, & Biden calls Antifa an idea, not an organization. IMAGE: Proud Boys' new branding "Stand Back, Stand By."
Sam hosts Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC), Justice Correspondent at the Nation magazine, to discuss the Amy Coney Barrett SCOTUS nomination, our conservative judiciary future, and what the left can do to fight it. Trump's admission that he wants ACB on the SCOTUS so he can steal the election. Barrett's history as part of the team that worked to stop the Florida recount in 2000. Barrett's reactionary views and hypocrisy w/r/t recusal. How a right-wing court could use the Chevron doctrine to block progressive legislation. Mystal's read on court packing and term limits.
On the fun half: Sarah Palin's bizarre video calling out Lisa Murkowski about ACB Nomination: "This is my house!" 1964 NYT headline describes voter suppression. Marco Rubio says Republican Senate was never going to confirm Merrick Garland. A libertarian makes Sam's day by calling into the show. Plus, your calls and IMs!
