A worthy political podcast
(Had to add this part after Monday - Pod Save America has NOT said that Biden would win with any certainty. They say don’t be complacent and that trump still has a pathway to win and that we must get out and do the work. C’mon men and women!)
One almost has to appreciate the mental gymnastics some must do who write about unwanted opinions in the comments here who undoubtedly are biased to the far, radical, trumpian right. They criticize CNN as being too liberal (they’re actually far more balanced than FOX, Oan or the Russian propaganda channel, RT, ever pretended they were or could be) while undoubtedly listening to the likes of Hannity, Carlson and Ingraham who regurgitate conspiracy theories, hate speech and whatever their billionaire puppet masters want them to say. What a joke!!! Check your privilege. Check your blind spots and maybe research the research on critical thinking to see how radical right you have become. It’s not a good look on you.
Yes, my sanity. Thank you fivethirtyeight politics crew
