Wait, we want ANOTHER Donald Trump?!?
Why are people in the Twittisphere talking about Joe Biden being the guy who can take on Trump on Trump's level? I want a candidate with substance, and this rant episode digs into Democratic candidates of substance, not sound bytes.

Red Lip Rant: Republicans, Denounce the Violence or Embrace Legislative Change
Olivia rants about the violence in New Zealand and the lack of strong denouncement from the conservative right. Republicans, fix your violent, white nationalist problem, or we will! Activism can fix problems before laws can, so unless we are going to create new laws for strict gun control, the Republicans need to fix the need to create them.
