Well. That whole thing about the Electoral College stopping Trump didn’t work out, did it? Dan Savage and Rich Smith give Eli Sanders some deserved reality checks regarding last week’s Great Hope for Resisting Trump, and right after that... It’s on to this week’s Great Hope for Resisting Trump! His name is Ezra Levin, he’s a former Democratic Congressional aide who witnessed the rise of the Tea Party firsthand, and he’s one of the authors of a free, open-sourced guide to using Tea Party tactics to stop Trump that’s gone viral in recent days. The guide’s called “Indivisible,” you can find it at www.indivisibleguide.com, and Eli talks to Ezra about its ideas. After that, Dan, Rich, and Eli talk about whether we really want to race Republicans to the moral rock-bottom when it comes to political combat (can you guess who’s more than ready for that race to start?) and whether we have any choice at this point. Finally, Stranger Social Media Manager Jessica Fu is back to explain Facebook’s plan to solve the fake news problem—and to answer Eli and Rich’s questions about whether the plan’s any good. Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
