Episode 122: Hauling Out the 25th Amendment
3 days ago
After yet another week of presidential lies and incompetence, Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith dust off the 25th Amendment and talk about how it might—or might not—solve all our problems. Also: Eli has a very, very, very elaborate fantasy about how some totally constitutional means could be used to get us a President Hillary Clinton by 2019. It’s… complicated. After that: finding both inspiration and some rather odd word choice in Senator John McCain’s rousing speech this week, plus some really impressive national journalism that just got some serious results. Finally, the #MeToo campaign, our tour of Donald Trump’s long pattern of sexual assault allegations, and our call for help in getting through this dark marathon that is his nearly-one-year-old administration. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
