Despite D'ump's Orwellian pronouncement that "what you're seeing and reading is not what's happening," Nicole Sandler is back to tell you that yes, indeed, it is exactly what's happening. Since there was no show yesterday, GottaLaff joins Nicole today for her Tweet Spot and the rest of the news.
As usual, Nicole Sandler runs down the latest news of the day. She then welcomes the one and only Driftglass back to the show to comment on the insanity that is life in America under the Trump administration.

Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins Nicole Sandler every Thursday afternoon... today, Joe Lieberman rears his ugly head again to fight against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Republicans seem to have no problem with Russia interfering with our elections.

Plus the latest news and information in What's News!
Nicole Sandler checks in with UK Progressive publisher and Three Muckrakers host Denis Campbell to get the British perspective on Trump's trip there. Former CIA operative Jack Rice weighs in on the president's big blunder(s) from an intelligence professional's point of view.
It's the end of another crazy week. During the first half of the show, Nicole brings us up to date on the latest news on Trump's European trip and the Peter Strzok hearing in the House. Then, we're joined by Gaius Publius, who had an op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle last week entitled "The Next US Constitution is Forming Now."
Trump alienated our NATO allies as he continues sucking up to Vladimir Putin. Today, he heads to the UK where he'll be greeted by a giant Baby Trump balloon and the Green Day song "American Idiot." Every Thursday, Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins Nicole Sandler to talk politics.
I've been lucky enough to interview some fascinating guests over the years. One of my favorites returns to the show today -- author and columnist Thomas Frank. His new book is called Rendezvous with Oblivion: Reports from a Sinking Society. Of course, you can't go wrong with any of his books, What's the Matter with Kansas?, Listen, Liberal, Pity the Billionaire and The Wrecking Crew. Follow him on Twitter @thomasfrank_....
Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Thai soccer team is freed from the cave, and thousands of migrant kids are still separated from their parents, courtesy of the US government.
