After a look at the latest news and outrages, we'll reconnect with Thomas Neuburger (the writer formerly known as Gaius Publius) to talk about his latest piece up at Down with Tyranny: "Trump's Eviction Moratorium Opens the Door for Medicare for All by Executive Order" and more! Today's funny was a [...]
