The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Sam hosts New York Magazine writer and author David Wallace-Wells (@dwallacewells) to discuss the state of the Covid-19 pandemic in the US and how it will impact our climate change debate.

On today's show: Larry Kudlow is mad people keep bringing up his "airtight" clip, says he was speaking about facts at the time.

New York Magazine writer and author David Wallace-Wells (@dwallacewells) joins Sam to discuss the state of the Covid-19 pandemic in the US and how it will impact our climate change debate. The rapid changes that have happened over the course of the pandemic and how much we still don't know. The confusion over who people should listen to. Trump's abdication of responsibility. Why haven't international organizations like the WHO been more helpful? Is this pandemic teaching people the value of state bureaucracy? The lethal combination of ideology and corruption driving the WH response. What measures might actually end the pandemic.

On the fun half: Trump hopes the election will be a referendum on his crisis response, claims he's created the world's best health systems. Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves says he will open state because MS is not NY, NJ despite rising Covid cases in MS. Dan Bongino says we live in a police state now that prisoners are being released from jails infected w/ Covid. Fox host says bailouts do not equal redistribution. Dave Rubin says his intellectual movement is the largest growing in the country. NYPD beat up young man and bystander for not having a mask, "flexing." Trump says he's been treated worse than Lincoln. Sam on the George W Bush video. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Sam hosts Digby (@Digby56) and comedian Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) this May Day Friday, and special guest Winsome Pendergrass (@WinsomePenderg4), a tenants' rights organizer in NYC who is leading today's rent strike.

On today's show: Joe Biden denies Tara Reade alleged assault: "it never happened."

Digby (@digby56) joins Sam to discuss the latest on Tara Reade's allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden and Trump's homicidal response to the Covid-19 crisis. Trump says "Democrat states" want bailouts, suggests GOP states are handling this better, talks about "negotiating position."

Winsome Pendergrass (@WinsomePenderg4), of Housing Justice for All and New York Communities for Change, joins Sam to discuss tenant organizing in New York City. She outlines the pre-existing housing crisis in NYC and Governor Cuomo's negligent handling of it before explaining why Cuomo's "eviction moratorium" is not enough and what people are doing to fight back. Get involved at housingjusticeforall.org and nycommunities.org!

Judy Gold (@JewdyGold) joins us for some catharsis about Mad King Trump and a discussion of her new book, "Yes, I Can Say That: When They Come For The Comedians, We Are All In Trouble." Order it at JudyGold.com.

Larry Hogan has South Korean tests guarded by National Guard at undisclosed location because he fears federal repossession. Armed right-wing protesters at Michigan State House. Jamie analyzes the Biden sexual assault story from a socialist feminist perspective. Dennis Prager says his choice to not wear a mask outside makes him like Rosa Parks, Nazi resistors. Tucker Carlson says Covid "gave our leaders more power" than anyone "in the history of this country." Trump wants to know which DNI official said Covid-19 was not Chinese made. Plus, your calls and IMs!

Michael Brooks hosts Kurt Hackbarth (@KurtHackbarth) of Jacobin to discuss his latest piece, "Never Let a Pandemic Go to Waste," on how Mexican elites have used the pandemic to thwart President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's (AMLO's) efforts to govern as an economic populist.

On today's show: Brian Williams segment on Trump's nervous breakdown gives Trump a nervous breakdown. Trump's "Lyin' Brian Williams" tweet.

Kurt Hackbarth (@KurtHackbarth) of Jacobin joins Michael to discuss his latest piece, "Never Let a Pandemic Go to Waste." After running and winning on an anti-corruption, anti-drug war, economically populist platform, AMLO has faced substantial challenges from right-wing forces both foreign and domestic. Now, in the wake of Covid-19, elites are doing everything they can to use the crisis to discredit and undermine him. Hackbarth provides context for the critiques being made of AMLO's Covid-19 response, as well as what he's done right, and the dirty tricks the corporate media is using to attack him.

On the fun half: Amazon, Instacart and other essential workers planning huge labor action on May 1 (don't cross the picket line!). A national rent strike is also coming; learn more at housingjusticeforall.org. Trump says virus will go away, wants to see the Yankees play at Yankee Stadium with fans. Trump says virus will go away: "It's gonna go." Fox & Friends debate restriction rollbacks and those vulnerable, callous Kilmeade suggests Ainsley is overreacting. Karen Pence explains why Mike Pence didn't wear a mask, says he gets tested often and Mayo Clinic didn't tell him. Secret Marxist Jim Cramer asks Nancy Pelosi what she will do to help people who've lost their jobs, Pelosi emits Biden-esque string of pablum. Andrew Cuomo uses masks sent to Albany to construct art mural instead of distributing them. Ben Shapiro says we're making "actuarial deductions" about Covid, a senior's life is worth less than a child's.

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!

Sam hosts author and Columbia history professor Adam Tooze to discuss the on-going recession and his latest piece in Foreign Policy, "The Normal Economy is Never Coming Back." Sam and Tooze discuss the troubling disconnect between the financial markets and the "real economy" and the strange lack of parity between them. Tooze compares this economic moment to the cartoon roadrunner suspended in midair off the edge of a cliff, spinning its legs before it looks down and crashes. The global economy has never experienced a shock quite like this. It will be a while before debts go unpaid, and the banks' balance sheets become problematic. We're all living on credit right now, which will eventually run out. Businesses with small margins with lower-educated workers will be the first to show damage. Sam and Tooze then move the conversation to the role of banks and who gets saved during the pandemic's economic triage. The two conclude their discussion on ways to build political capital against austerity measures pushed by McConnell, why the national debt is a red herring wielded for political gain, and how Democrats need to spend to help the American people.

And in the Fun Half: the My Pillow guy's memoir is coming out, Tucker Carlson's toxicity, Tara Reade's allegation against Joe Biden, weighing Joe Biden's candidacy, the cancelled presidential primary, Trump's return to the podium, plus your calls and IMs!

On today's show:

Sam hosts Frank Snowden, professor of history at Yale, to discuss his new book, Epidemics and Society: From the Black Death to the PresentHow densely populated environments brought humans into contact with Covid-19. The disaster of unpreparedness and how economic inequality causes diseases to impact the poor more than the rich. How diseases heighten class tensions. An epidemic's role in the Haitian revolution and other uprisings through history. How work, transportation, and capitalism itself will need to be re-thought in the wake of Covid-19.

On the fun half: Pelosi says "just calm down" to those who think she made a tactical error in relief fight with McConnell. Pelosi wonders whether minimum guaranteed income may now be "worthy of attention." A national rent strike is brewing; more at housingjusticeforall.org. Asked about injecting disinfectant, Trump said he was being sarcastic to troll the media. Should the left be reaching out to wealthier, more highly educated people? Newt Gingrich says money for states has strings attached. Mark Cuban says we need to "lift up from the bottom" and help working people, implement a federal job guarantee and UBI for stay-at-home parents. Steve Doocy says we can't really know if Covid-19 measures are working in the moment, wonders about Sweden model. Tom Cotton says we need to stop STEM student exchanges with China, implies Shakespeare was from the US? Gorka says the left hates Trump because of his masculinity.

Sam hosts Emma Vigeland and David Feldman and breaks down the week's biggest headlines. Emma and Sam breakdown the latest round of stimulus money, the road ahead for Democrats, and why our elected officials need to see themselves as essential workers during this pandemic crisis.

Then David Feldman joins Sam for maybe his most honest and transparent conversation about the state of American culture and whether or not we are allowed to change the way our country fundamentally operates. Ultimately, the suffering we see playing out before us is the result of our political leaders' decisions. You don't want to miss this one.

And in the Fun Half: why is Larry Summers leading the Biden economic recovery, AOC takes a stand, and A Bernie or Bust call!

On today's show: Trump says "we're covered 100" to attack Iranian boats.

Jacobin writer Meagan Day (@meaganmday) and Jacobin editor Micah Uetricht (@micahuetricht) join Michael to discuss their new book, Bigger Than Bernie: How We Go from the Sanders Campaign to Democratic SocialismDespite failing to win the Democratic nomination, the Bernie Sanders campaign helped build a movement that must go beyond the electoral sphere and the career of any single politician if it's going to succeed. Looking at the past, present, and potential future of leftist movements in the US, Day and Uetricht identify how labor organizing and "class struggle elections" can build working class power and continue the fight for democratic socialism.

On the fun half: Gordon Brown says we must address global inequality to stop Covid-19 spread. Anderson Cooper says Vegas is a virus petri dish, Las Vegas Mayor says he's an alarmist and it's up to casino owners to figure out how to social distance. Vegas mayor offers city residents as tribute to American economy: "we offer to be a control group." Cuomo is upset about questions about protestors, says anyone upset with unemployment delays can get a job as an essential worker. Sarah Huckabee says AOC is putting people down and she might want to remember what it's like to be a bartender. Pennsylvania workers leave PPE plant after a month straight of living and working in their factory.

Sam and Michael break down this week's top headlines and then Sam rolls an interview he did with Diane Ravitch (@DianeRavitch) on her new book, Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public Schools

On today's show: Trump deflects on VA hydroxychloroquine study and NIH assessment: "I don't know...we'll take a look." After VA hydroxychloroquine tests, Dr. Oz now says we have to wait for randomized trial Dr. Fauci asked for. Study: people who watched Hannity instead of Carlson less likely to follow social distancing rules. William Barr tells Hugh Hewitt DOJ would support legal action if governors' restrictions go "too far." GA governor Brian Kemp doesn't seem to understand his own plan, says he's re-opening close contact businesses because they're the only ones not allowed open, claims they're safer than grocery stores. Nashville 21-year-old battling Covid-19 warns youth to take the virus seriously. Hannity shares a bunch of headlines from March saying Covid-19 is Trump's biggest disaster, doesn't make a point defending Trump.
 Brian Kilmeade & Ainsley Earhardt thank President for allowing au pairs to remain in America, saying it helps the middle class. Daily Wire's Michael Knowles says lockdown is saving zero lives, more will die from unemployment. FLASHBACK MARCH 26: Matt Walsh makes the "drive your car" analogy for Covid-19 risks, says economy should be saved, deaths have to be "way over 35,000."

Diane Ravitch (@DianeRavitch) joins Sam to discuss her new book, Slaying Goliath: The Passionate Resistance to Privatization and the Fight to Save America's Public SchoolsA decades-long trend of school privatization has done nothing to help the average American student; on the contrary, it's made things worse. In this book, Ravitch details how rich and powerful actors like the Kochs, the DeVos family, Bill Gates, Mike Bloomberg, and others have attempted to systematically dismantle our public education system, and what parents, teachers, students and other across the country have been doing to resist.

Sam hosts Time Magazine senior correspondent Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) to discuss her new book The Ones We've Been Waiting For: How a New Generation of Leaders Will Transform America on how millennial political leadership will change the country in the not-so-distant future. 

On today's show: Brian Kilmeade asks Dr. Oz if economic impact "outstrips" public health benefit, Dr. Oz says no.

Time Magazine senior correspondent Charlotte Alter (@CharlotteAlter) joins Sam to discuss her book, The Ones We've Been Waiting For: How a New Generation of Leaders Will Transform America. The millennial generation has been steadily entering politics, with 26 millennials now representing their districts in Congress. To study what impact that might have on US electoral politics, Alter examined the factors that shaped this generation's worldview, as well as the experiences of millennial politicians from Dan Crenshaw to AOC.

On the fun half: Devastatingly effective Trump 2020 ad features Pelosi's ice cream fridge. Scott Walker says we can reopen the manufacturing industry, but keep workers from lunch breaks and breakrooms. Georgia governor Brian Kemp lays out plan to re-open GA's business on Friday, claims it's not a political decision. Ben Shapiro says smart business owners will pay workers less because they can guarantee a job to workers, says workers would be smart to work for less because unemployment will run out. Brian Kilmeade gets upset after learning Tom Brady was stopped from working out at a park in Tampa Bay, Florida. Trump mocks media: "It was all about ventilators, ventilators, ventilators."
