this is the first time I've heard the term "gender essentialist." That's the basis of sexism. please don't just glaze over that.

can't be said often enough: "kids" aren't the only ones carrying student loan debt. I have many friends over 50 who are also burdened with educational loan debt.

Their analysis of the Mueller report is about as deep as a submarine floating through the sky. Does that analogy sound stupid to you? Then so should this podcast. Pod Save America relies on your ignorance to not look up facts yourself to push their agenda. If you take enough time and get your news from multiple sources you'll see many of the things they claim are flat out lies. I suggest everyone who listens to only this podcast broaden their horizon and open their minds. Then maybe you'll see how much you've been missing.

but is it necessary to actually appear on Fox to call them on their bullshit, JF? If Fox is a cancer on democracy, I think it will take more than pointing at it to dismantle it.

wow. thanks for the chance to hear Ms. Harris speak in something longer than a sound byte or a zinger question. I am surprised (though maybe I shouldn't be) to hear her stringing cliches together just like "the others" and surprised how disorganized her thinking seems to be. so much hoopla about her. based on this offering, I don't get it. maybe she was just nervous?

Alex Mercedes A very moving sentiment. but those who thought that they were left-of-center are now being pushed into the middle. The left is becoming a party they don't recognize anymore.

nope. not inslee. seems like a nice guy but he does that thing that turns some of us off: asked which is the most pressing climate change concern, he leads with a toot on his own horn. not a good look. In an interview or conversation, I want to see proof the candidates have listening skills. a good way to prove it is by answering the question.

Eric Holder said he was Barack Obama's wingman and was held in contempt of congress and Obama invokes executive privilege to protect him and its William Barr who's the lackey because he says he's going to get to the bottom of what really happened in the 2016 election.... Is this real life or some bizarro world?!

GraWsA The Mueller report was never about trying to find out what happened. The Mueller report was basically and open ended investigation into Trump until Barr stepped in to limit the scope to the original intent which was to learn if the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Since that goal was accomplished a long time ago it didn't take long for the report to come out once Barr stepped in as AG. Now Barr is looking into how the investigation started even though there was no proof of collusion.

Alan Nicholson The Mueller Report is the result of trying to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016. The IG is already looking into making sure it was done properly. What does a guy who helped bury the Iran Contra scandal looking into to spying with zero evidence help at all? He's a partisan. I don't pay enough attention to right wing conspiracy junk so I guess I don't know about what exactly you're talking about with Holder. I do know that the Obama administration was historically corrupt what with it's zero indictments and such. ha

lol! "john kerry" chirp chirp. the point the guy was making with John Kerry is that it was hotter in the jurrasic period then it is now. how is that possible without cars and factories? volcanos? well i guess the volcanos all stopped? also life existed and continued regardless. you guys understand just enough about science to look stupid. oh and anyone who believes that bs about paul revere needs to go to biography.com. or Wi kipedia

I wasn't sure about zip recruiter until you "feast of nerds" referred to it as a "suite of tools" and now I want one. I still don't even really know what it is but I love your zany ads for this sexy, computerish product. You know what? I'LL BUY THREE. Do you accept COD or do I have to drive to where ever y'all are to pick 'em up? ps. I love your show.

You said they're stupid, but they're still running rampant and not being held accountable for most of their shit. I think it's we who truly are the stupids.

They dont wanna admit that was an obama policy so they say that trump Neilson oversaw or enforced the law. I love how they can finally admit there is a border crisis, even if they think the crisis is we arent letting them in fast enough. lmao

Michael Parke yeah. I remember you mentioning your brother before. that's a tough one dude. it's really difficult when you have that kind of conceptual division within your own family. I feel for you there. I think you and I can probably agree that trying to rationalize with irrational people doesn't work. it's also pretty irrational to make your political opponents/internet randos into an effigy of your brother. it's illogical to react to the strangers comment above (which isn't necessarily conspiracy theory) with all the frustration inspired by your family members. maybe you and your bro are polarized in similar ways but to opposite degrees.

Ezra Fickov I understand what you are saying. I would never had said what I did any other time in my life. in an optimist and I used to have high regard for America and my fellow citizens. I still love my country and want it to do well but I didnt realize how many citizens are so angry they will cheer if their leaders break precedent and harm separation of power. if a large chunk of people think a pedophile (Roy Moore), open racist (Steve king) or lying game show host are better then a centrist dem then we have huge issues. I don't want to give up on my fellow citizens and I have spent countless hours using facts and logic towards Trump voters that are friends or family and they will never be swayed. They think qanon is real and is actually posting on chat boards how he is going to take down a deep state. They think a dem candidate is a devil worshiping cannibal child rapist who also likes pizza, they think the dnc assassinated a employee, they think our first black potus couldn't have been.born.here and with that name he must be a Isis terrorist dictator that wants to have death camps in America. That's just a few of the insane things they believe. my brother sends me the craziest things and if any photo has a Q in it that means it's qanon talking to us. What exactly should we do when they live in a fantasy world of constant doom? They also believe Armageddon is close so they live in constant fear and have no logic. Should we waste our time when we know nothing we ever say or evidence we have will matter?
