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!
