    #307 Bikers For COVID

    Alise and Sami are back to break down the president’s weekend assembling large groups of people in a COVID haunted house, issuing meaningless executive actions, and insisting coronavirus will magically disappear.

    #306 Veepstakes Has Gone Off The Rails

    Sami and Amanda are back to recount all the useless things Trump did yesterday before jetting off to his golf club while tens of millions of Americans await economic relief amid a deadly epidemic he has failed to contain. Then they discuss Biden’s moving deadline on announcing a VP. It was fun at first, but does the protracted timeline pit women against each other and reduced their dynamic careers to pros and cons lists? They discuss why Benghazi will be a factor in Susan Rice’s consideration even though it shouldn’t, and how the press should stop treating the election as a beauty contest and focus more on Trump’s attempts to undermine it.
