Joyful conversation in the disaster of Trump’s time in office

Rabia and Susan’s fantastic rapport is the highlight of my week (now fortnight... boo Covid). I can never wait to see what they’ll have to say and I am always educated by the conversation. Please don’t ever stop even when we don’t have to dissect Trump’s mania day by day and your conversation can just be about cats.

Overly leftie lady rant...

...sure, have a pod that focuses on the President; absolutely, follow, digest, channel policies of the presidents administration; without doubt, ask questions, debate, consider, behaviours of those upholding the offices of state. But do not, NOT, waste your time doing this (or frankly listening to it) if you’re going in to it all with the attitude - ‘Trump, bad man, orange, Trump, Trump, not my President, slay queen, yaass gurl’ - because then you’re starting at a place which means you’re incapable of doing anything except repeat what the ill informed want to hear. Summary, this pod isn’t a platform for reviewing the 45th’s time as chief, but a birds-nest for two leftie shrews to rant their ‘bad, orange man’ trite from.

Drops mic.

Deeper dive on Trumps Presidency

Great deep dive by Susan Simpson and Rabia Chowdrey from undisclosed podcast. Often has a republican and Democrat point of view and in this world of fake news it’s good to take a step back and review the week.
