Biden called reporter “lyin dog face” before the question
Strong defense of Wendell Potter on today’s pod. overall I like the pod!
But you clearly didn’t watch Biden’s presser. He laughingly called the reporter who asked the last question about cognitive testing a lyin dog face because Biden was trying to wrap up , and the reporter was sneaking in an extra question. This was before the question was asked. Then Biden answered calmly- a canned reply, but no anger.
it’s a small thing but please do better. I don’t like Biden, he’s a neoliberal war monger, who will resist progressive change if he wins. I’m 71, and I’ve known there’s something fundamentally wrong with this country since college in the late 60’s. A failed state is possible: Pandemic, fascist president, millions out of work, and nationwide police violence -good people are rising up, but we’re not organized, and outcome is unknowable.
lame bloviated and condescending DSA inside baseball crap with sprinkles of Poulantzis Leo Panitch etc.
Truth and thoughtful analysis
Favorite episode will always be #28, it was the first time I had ever heard the truth about how the US, and its allies including Saudi Arabia lit the match that propped up ISIS that led to the Yazidi Genocide.
