2019 is here, and so is the 116th Congress! The Democrats are back in control of the House, and we can allow ourselves a bit of hope again. With a narcissistic madman in the oval office, it's easy to get discouraged. That's why every year, we invite John Nichols on the show to salute The Nation's 2018 Progressive Honor Roll. Today, a look at the best of 2018, and a preview of what's to come in this new year.
Every year, The Nation magazine publishes its Progressive Honor Roll. Today, we're joined by John Nichols to go over the best of the left list for 2017. But first, Donald Trump is a moron, and Steve Bannon spilled the beans to author Michael Wolff in the forthcoming book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, a bit of which was excerpted today by NY Magazine...
As 2015 draws to a close, we can't wait to see what the New Year has in store. Today, Deborah Newell Tornello joins in for one final 2015 romp through the Oy FloriDUH files. And continuing an annual tradition, The Nation's John Nichols joins in to run down their 2015 Progressive Honor Roll.
Nicole is back for a new year with John Nichols and one last look at 2014 with The Nation's Progressive Honor Roll, plus remembering Mario Cuomo. And Digby weighs in on our police problems and other issues facing us with a Republican-controlled 114th Congress convening tomorrow
It's Festivus, so Nicole joins Pope Francis in the Airing of Grievances, one of the Festivus traditions. The Nation's John Nichols gives us a preview of this year's Progressive Honor Roll, and we visit with @GottaLaff for the last time in 2014
