This week Sydney Brownstone, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about the GOP's Roy Moore problem and how it's similar to--and different from--the left's Bill Clinton problem. Also: the complexity that comes along with the instruction to "Believe women." After that, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions takes another spin in the Congressional testimony chair and so, of course, The Honorable Rich Smith must return with his Sessions impression. And watch out: the Republican "tax reform" plan now includes a big helping of Obamacare repeal shenanigans. We tell you who to call. Finally, Chase Burns is back to discuss Don "Baby Don" Jr.'s shady DMs. No idea what that means? Chase'll explain, Boomers and Gen Xers. Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving in advance because we'll be off next week! See you on November 29.

And finally, Stranger Social Media Manager Chase Burns is on to talk about this week's Facebook vs. Congress showdown, and what the hell we should do about the bigger problem of social medal vs. democracy. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
