The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam and Emma host Heather "Digby" Parton, proprietor of the wönderblog Hullabaloo and contributor, to discuss the week's top stories, including Biden's bipartisan fetish President Manchin and the filibuster, and more. They explore the Democrats’ plan to make June the month of failure, using the filibuster as part of their ass-covering project, and Biden’s lack of leverage over Manchin, before moving on to how the Republicans have been mastering the obstructionist blueprint for decades. Next, they touch on the futures of the voting, infrastructure, and (now singular) reconciliation bill, and how Manchin remains the bar for Biden to put a bill up for a vote. Sam and Emma then watch Lara Trump bust the theory of Trump’s August Inauguration, and Sam hypothesizes how Q stans will work around her comments (it’s easy, just delay it a month!).

And in the Fun Half: Dagen McDowell declares government-run healthcare dead (ironically enough), because, obviously, we ALL have healthcare, and Glenn Greenwald doesn’t quite understand just wanting healthcare. Sam, Emma, Brendan, and Matt discuss how Donald Trump is working to sustain his base to ensure the role of presumptive nominee in 2024, and look into how PC culture has begun to interfere in the papal labor market before Rudolph Giuliani blows them away with HisPillows, and slippers, and more! Then, Kiester from FL rebuts Mike from Miami’s Gillum takes, Jeff from LA calls in to discuss the horrors of insurance copay policy, and the crew watches George P. Bush’s baptize himself in all Trump’s glory as he prepares his run for Texas AG, plus, your calls and IMs!
