In this Blabbermouth extra, recorded live at Seattle’s Neptune Theatre on March 27, Eli Sanders sits down Preet Bharara. He’s the former federal prosecutor for Manhattan who was mysteriously fired by President Trump not long after Trump first took office. Bharara is also the author of a new, best-selling book called “Doing Justice.” No surprise, he had a lot to say about Trump, the end of the Mueller investigation, the Barr memo, and more!
Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith wade through the confusing arrival of “The Mueller Report.” The report is finally in, but only Attorney General William Barr and a small handful of people at the Justice Department know exactly what it says. All we have is a very short “Barr Report” that summarizes Mueller's findings, plus President Trump's take on Barr’s report: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION.” Um, not exactly. After that, Katie Herzog assesses the Republicans’ latest attempt to dismantle Obamacare and the wild turn in the Jussie Smollett case. Finally, Jasmyne Keimig has an issue with how cooking for one forces you to eat the same thing all the time, The Atlantic has an article on the weirdos who actually love to eat the same thing all the time, and oh, look, Rich is one of them! He offers his rules for repetitive eating. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Katie Herzog admit that every once in a long while, they find a thing or two to agree with in Trump’s tweets—of which there were 28 this past Sunday. Also, Dan continues his war on the electoral college and Katie wonders what Beto O’Rourke has ever really accomplished. After that, Chase Burns talks about the Andrew Yang phenomenon. Yang is running for president as a Democrat, wants to give every American a thousand bucks a month, and has enough support that he’ll be in the first Democratic presidential debate. Finally, Jasmyne Keimig on HBO’s new documentary about Elizabeth Holmes and the Theranos scandal. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
