Day 112: GOP backs Trump who tried to steal an election over Cheney
More and more, Republicans are standing behind Trump who is still attacking the 2020 election and are poised to oust Liz Cheney from GOP House leadership for daring to tell the truth about it. Plus tensions between Israelis and Palestinians continue to worsen killing at least 33 people. We discuss that and much more with Ashley Parker, Charlotte Alter, Jeremy Bash, Baratunde Thurston, Bill Kristol, and Dr. Irwin Redlener.
Day 111: Good vaccine news, bad cybersecurity news, and a GOP still divided
Rep. Kevin McCarthy once said Trump 'bears responsibility' for the Capitol insurrection. But now McCarthy is following Trump and openly calling for Rep. Liz Cheney to lose her position in House leadership. Plus, the FDA approves the Pfizer vaccine for 12-15 year old teens and the FBI says a Russian crime syndicate was behind a major cyberattack on a U.S. fuel pipeline. We're joined by Philip Rucker, A.B. Stoddard, Malcolm Nance, David Plouffe, Tim Miller, and Dr. Nahid Bhadelia.
Day 108: Trump loyalists seek to purge GOP of 2020 truth tellers
Rep. Matt Gaetz and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green launched a pro-Trump tour in Florida on Friday pushing Trump's "Big Lie" on the election - despite the fact Trump lost the 2020 race and tried to overturn a fair election. We discuss the future of the GOP, the latest on the Covid pandemic, and more with Peter Baker, Susan Page, Stephanie Ruhle, Dr. Kavita Patel, Caroline Randall Williams, and Jon Meacham.
Day 107: Biden now faces a GOP completely defined by Trump's 'Big Lie'
With Florida becoming the latest state to enact a law restricting voter access, Republicans are rallying around Trump's baseless lie that he really won the 2020 election against Joe Biden. We discuss that and much more with Jonathan Lemire, Lisa Lerer, Neal Katyal, Jason Johnson, Mike Murphy, Robert Gates, and an NBC News Exclusive Report from Andrea Mitchell.
Day 106: Biden says GOP having a 'mini-revolution' as effort to oust Liz Cheney heats up
With a growing number of Trump-loyal Republicans looking to throw her out of House leadership, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney penned an opinion piece blasting her party and warning them for their devotion to Trump's 'Big Lie' that he won the 2020 election. Plus, Facebook decides - for now at least - to keep its ban on Trump in place. We discuss that and more with Carol Leonnig, David Jolly, Jen Golbeck, Eugene Robinson, Bill Kristol, and Dr. Nahid Bhadelia.
