Lyman deigned to show up this week after having taken a break last week. Our discussions included the ‘Bernie Bro’ phenomenon and whether the exist (they do) and if they are toxic (they are). Of course, I have to issue the ‘not all Bernie supporters’ disclaimer (both of us are Bernie supporters), but the problem is significant enough that we think it should be called out more than it is.
The coronavirus is our next topic. We discuss the latest news, including the fact that both of our home states have cases (Tennessee and Maryland), as well as the fact Italy locked the entire fucking country down. And, of course, we had to discuss the utterly incompetent handling of the outbreak by Our Orange Overlord. The individual states are having to handle themselves mostly on their own because the Feds are woefully unprepared and ignorant. Just another day in the Trump administration, although this particular fuck up might kill us all.
Finally, we talk about the Democratic Nomination race and the current status. We love Bernie, but it’s not looking good for his cause. We then talk about why Biden is shitty, but also that we’re not fucking idiots and we will vote for him if he’s the nominee.
There’s a lot of meat in this episode, so come hungry!
