I adore this podcast and NPR; however, is this a topic that should be covered? As Mara said, "This really was a greatest hits rally." Nothing changes, why cover it?

I'd like her to be careful about bashing the current president. Not sure how folks on the fence will respond to that.

Give me a break! The #GOP and #TreasonousTrump do not cate about congress or due process. They are obviously just stalling for time to help cover for Trump's crimes. Stop being so charitable to lying thieves!

This isn't partisan bickering here... #TreasonousTrump and the GOP are obviously still working with the Russians and anyone else that will help them retain power!

So Bernie is saying we don't have to defeat #TreasonousTrump? What a joke. If Bernie would rather have Trump he is a traitor just like Trump.

I am disgusted by the fact that traditionally 'liberal' news outlets like this are making excuses for leaving an obviously criminal 'president' in office. It is disgusting!

All of the participants in this episode are being MUCH too charitable to the administration. This immigration 'proposal' is obvious white supremacist garbage, call it what it is!

I've been listening to this podcast for years, (since it began) but this year they are really getting insane. I feel like 1/2 the episode is time stamp intros, excessive chitchat, and 10 min of "can't let it goes'. it's getting really tiresome and I'm looking for alternatives now. I wish they treated the podcast in a more professional manner and condensed the content.
