It’s News Day Tuesday! Sam and Emma break down the biggest headlines of the day. First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Israel’s continued ethnic cleansing of Gaza, protests at US ports to shut down military aid, election day in the US, Donald Trump’s fraud case, the upcoming GOP debate, SAG-AFTRA negotiations, labor action, and the global climate emergency, before watching CNBC grapple with UAW’s incredible victory. Then, Sam and Emma jump into the start of Mike Johnson’s speakership, highlighted by an incoming government shutdown and a massive influx of aid to Israel, before parsing through the more *personal* elements of his identity that have recently come to light. They also tackle the absurdity of recent attempts to paint the US as having a *lack* of leverage over Israel, walk through the practicalities of a ceasefire, and what an attempt to actually dismantle Hamas would look like (if Israel or Biden cared).
And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss recent bad-faith arguments about the call for Palestinian liberation “From the River to the Sea,” and Israel’s absolute refusal to ever engage with any civil Palestinian liberation movement, before watching Simone Sanders’ recent comments on Biden’s candidacy moving forward. Ramsey, a Palestinian calling in from the DMV, reflects on the long history of the pain and occupation of the Palestinian people and why it is only just now getting acknowledged by the Western world, Abdul from Atlanta discusses Biden’s failed promises to Black Americans, and Jay from Troy dives into some odd strategy from the GOP candidate in his local Mayoral race. Donald Trump’s lawyer takes after the best, and Sam and Emma parse deeper into the FBI probe of Eric Adams’ Chief Fundraiser, plus your calls and IMs!
