    Biden Campaign Unloads on Trump's Conviction

    Biden Campaign Unloads on Trump's Conviction

    The Biden campaign puts big money into a new ad slamming Trump as a convicted felon, fraudster, and sexual predator, and painting Biden as a fighter for working families. Trump courts the Black vote in front of a mostly white audience in Detroit, and CNN announces the final rules for next week’s debate. Plus: Jon, Lovett, and Tommy talk about who’s up and who’s down in the race to be Trump’s VP.

    Trump Returns to the Scene of the Crime

    Trump returns to the Capitol for the first time since January 6th and receives a hero’s welcome from House and Senate Republicans—where he calls Milwaukee a “horrible city,” refers to the Justice Department as “dirty bastards,” and complains about Taylor Swift not endorsing him.

Plus, SCOTUS affirms legal access to abortion medication, Biden takes voters’ cost of living concerns head on, and Trump tries to woo CEOs with more tax cuts.

Then: Jon and Tommy land the world-exclusive first interview with newly minted reality TV persona Jon Lovett, who suffers through a quiz about all the news he missed during his time away.

Debating Gaza problem with Mehdi Hasan

I miss hearing or seeing Mehdi Hasan on MSNBC. Thanks for having him on Pod Save America. As a philosophy student & therefore one who debates, I observe Hasan's ability to argue a point as stunning. His understanding of the Middle East is extensive. However, two points are rarely made in the media concerning Israel, which is to say Palestine, & president Biden. The IDF supports Israelites, that is colonists, when they trespass on Palestinian lands. Ancient olive groves are chopped down or uprooted, orange groves & farm animals are stolen or destroyed, homes destroyed or attacked. It is a fact that Biden identified himself as "Zionist" with joy & pride. Finding him saying it is easily found on the internet via YouTube.

Great podcast

I have been listening for many years. Love the show! Would like Jon and Tommy to be less dismissive of Lovett’s opinion.
