Every Tuesday, I'm joined by GottaLaff to shoot the shit about the news, as mostly gleaned from Laffy's Twitter feed... Today the news mostly centered on Trump's meeting with Congressional reps about DACA and immigration, and Dianne Feinstein's decision to release the transcripts of the testimony of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, going around the back of Chuck Grassley and the Republicans. Oh, and we also discussed the ridiculous calls for Oprah to run for president.
Nicole Sandler looks at the news of the day before bringing on Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny Blue America PAC and the to talk about the Democrats embracing their dark side, and the ones who are real progressives.

Just as Roger Ailes and Bill Cosby put punctuation to their own creepy sex scandals and waved anything resembling public respect au revoir, The Donald's long and storied history of bully behaviors/abusive speech re women pivots to Ick. Trump pretty much Triples Down on his most offensive bigoted commentary. He enjoys calling women pigs, deriding them as 'fat' and 'ugly' or 'semi-attractive' or 'slobs'.
