Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about the firing of FBI Director James Comey. This whole thing feels a lot like the “Saturday Night Massacre” of 1973. (Which, by the way, only Boomer Dan was alive for.) It also feels like a brewing constitutional crisis. (Good thing we explained the constitution to Rich last episode.) What should Democrats do now? Dan, Rich, and Eli have some ideas. After that, three purity tests. First: Was it wrong and homophobic for Stephen Colbert to make a joke about Donald Trump being Vladimir Putin’s “cockholster”? Second: Should liberals have supported a Democratic mayoral candidate in Omaha even though he wasn’t ideologically perfect on abortion? Third: Should you cancel your New York Times subscription because the paper ran a climate-change-questioning column? And after all that: House Republicans are back home for recess following their vote to repeal Obamacare, and Rich tells you how to find them at town hall meetings—and how to shame them if they’re not holding town hall meetings. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
