Gillibrand Interview

I really appreciated that Michael pushed back against Gillibrand’s refusal to consider the possibility that she might have been wrong, or at the least hasty, in her condemnation of Franken. This kind of inflexible thinking disqualifies her as a presidential candidate in my view. The disingenuous response that “it was Franken’s decision to resign” is belied by the fact that she knew full well that Chuck Schumer strong-armed Franken to resign. What “choice” was there in that? In my view, this case threatens to weaken the MeToo movement by appearing un-balanced in the pursuit of the truth.

Kirsten Gillibrand on Al Franken Episode

This was the worst interview I’ve heard on the podcast. I don’t know what you guys were trying to get at by pressing Kristen on her decision to speak up...

Senator Gillibrand

I am a fan of this podcast, but Michael’s line of questioning towards the Senator from New York was abhorrent. She deserves a public apology.
