Ep 116: Omarosa, railroading Keith Ellison, and Disney's gay-for-pay controversy (14 Aug 18)
2 days ago
Today's big topic is Omarosa and her impact on the Mueller probe. And while Cliff and I spend a good deal of time talking about just that, we also discussed the sexual assault accusations against Keith Ellison, and whether some on the left aren't jumping a little too quickly to judgment before even seeing or hearing the evidence against Ellison. Then we segue into a new controversy involving Disney's first openly-gay character, and whether it's okay for Disney to have hired a -- wait for it -- straight actor (Jack Whitehall) to play gay on the screen! Da, da, dum. For the record, I think it's totally okay, and that led us into a lengthy discussion about whether the Internet isn't turning us all into a bunch of victims whiny who are far too prone to cry wolf every time we get even the hint of a slight.
This is one of our longer episodes, to make up for last week's skinniness, due to my hard-drive crash. Enjoy!
