I'm disappointed that Sykes glazed over Rush Limbaugh's bigotry and deep seated racism. They discussed how "bad" he was, but what exactly made him bad????

Limbaugh was about ad hominem attacks and strawman arguments from day one.

Mr Waller is beyond nauseating. He like so many on the right or elected Republicans are so disingenuous and insulting fake. He spends so much time make a case wrongly that DJT can't be tried by the Senate since he's a private citizen. Was he a private citizen when he committed his misdeeds? Was he a private citizen when the House impeached him? And the Senate is not the judge, jury and executioner. It i he jury. If 67 voted to convict, then the Constitution which is to be the final arbiter and judge, categorically and clearly states he shall be removed. The Constitution renders the final and indisputable judgment, thereby declaring itself and not the Senate as the judge in the matter. Aside from all of that, Wallner like so many argue process with little regard to the actual substance of the charge and matter at hand. DJT staged a 2 month long failed coup and fomented the attack on 1/6 with weeks of activities and calls to action directly and thru his surrogates. But let's not be bothered by that. Let's debate ad nausea arcane wording while overlooking seditious, criminal and traitorous conduct. Just pathetic...the whole rotten lot if them from the 140+ House Republicans, Haley, 45 Senators. Hawley and Cruz et al.

Just wanted to add one comment regarding impeachment and the fact that House members went home for the weekend: Consider the possibility that the Speaker understood that the Representatives (some brand new) just had the bejesus scared out of them and needed some time to process what had happened. Just a thought...

Tim Miller's vocal fry is hard to listen to and bad for his vocal health. Otherwise it was an interesting conversation.

Elizabeth Neumann is the real deal. Cried to hear a bona fide bible believer deal with deception & false prophecy in Trumpian Christianity. Thank you, Charlie.

Enough with the 2024 Trump Bogey Man. Did anyone in 2013 assume Trump would win 2016???? Come on. Trump is a 74/75 fat white guy. You really think he’s even alive in 2024???

This guy and his clan are really like traveling gypsy grifters, if it doesn't involve money he will not be a part of it. He will be at his florida home greeting guest and taking pictures. There will not be the traditional speaker fees and such. He doesn't have legitimate friends, once he is a private citizen most will not care much of what he has to say. His exposure not just as as an impeached first term president who lost, but the visible ineptitude from those around him, the complicenty of his antics and quite frankly unconstitutional behavior that may put our national and international security and interests at serious risk, he will comprise this country for money, yes. Anyway, that's a start to acknowledge he will be a private citizen, for that I could consider him even more irrelevant, the emperor still doesn't know he isn't wearing any clothes, sorry for that visual, ugh.

I have never understood how average Trump voters felt until this podcast w/your guest of 11/19. Also see how horribly he has abused them, esp. with covid, leaving them defenseless to wait for a vaccine. Won't mock them any more. Love ya, Charlie.

You’re an idiot, if you actually think that Lou Dobbs thinks that Trump’s election win was stolen from him. He’s trolling the audience for ratings.

What if the Republicans back a true coup? I’m very nervous.
