3297 – Schumer Presses Israel, Trump & Biden Clinch, & TikTok w/ Jeet Heer, Matthew Film Guy

It’s Casual Friday! Sam and Emma speak with Jeet Heer, national affairs correspondent for The Nation, to round up the week in news. And then, they’re joined by Matthew Film Guy! First, Sam and Emma run through updates on Trump’s Georgia case, Menendez’s legal woes, Gaetz’s Subpoena, Russian elections, Donald Trump, and objections from big tech over labor laws, also parsing through some of the major seats up for grabs in the House and Senate come November. Jeet Heer then joins, as he helps Sam and Emma parse through Sen. Schumer’s recent call for new Israeli elections alongside a two-state solution, looking at it in the context of the “uncommitted” movement as a (rather weak) attempt to stay the pressure from the left ahead of the election, despite the genocide raging on. Jeet, Sam, and Emma expand on the electoral conversation, discussing RFK’s ballot access problem and VP PR stunt, and the Democrats’ continuing failure to mobilize voters for Biden, before wrapping up by assessing Biden’s dwindling polling numbers and the absolute absurdity of his new TikTok ban. Matthew Film Guy also joins, tackling his Oscar re-previews, and offering up his suggestion of what to watch this week –– Kiarostami’s “Like Someone in Love.”

And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma discuss Bernie’s 32-hour workweek bill with some help from Shawn Fain, Tim Scott and Tulsi Gabbard do their best Trump Administration auditions. The MR Crew tackles the likelihood of a Kristi Noam VP, Dave Rubin and Greg Gutfeld celebrating fascism in their own, unique ways, and Ben Shapiro wanting to make you work (and you better be happy about it!). They also tackle the great retail theft myth, plus, your calls and IMs!
