The elephant in the room is that Biden is just too old for reelection. and that's what's so scary if Trump runs. A younger Democrat to run instead of Biden is what is needed, otherwise Trump might be a shoe in and that's what he and all the Republicans are banking on. Even if a younger independent would run, that would just take votes from the Democrats and Trump would win again. Trump's too old too, among many, many other reasons why he shouldn't run. there needs to be an age limit on running for president. it's ridiculous to have such old people running the country. They could croak at any moment!

How about if we stop using words like Trumpy, Trumpism & Trumpiest. What do those words really mean, truly stand for? Amoral? Corrupt? Authoritarian? Vulgar? Narcissistic? Power-hungry? Saying Trumpy is too benign. Let's call it like it is. Words matter.

Biden is going to be too old to run again. can he have someone in his place? does it have to be the vice president? just curious. I don't know how this works if a sitting president decides he doesn't want to run again.

I feel sorry for Herschel Walker in a way, he is just a patsy for the Republican party. they don't care about him. they laugh behind his back at the ignorant stuff that comes out of his mouth. He's being used and he's being disrespected by his own party.

Democrats demand their Nazi threat to democracy opponents tone down their rhetoric and stop campaigning because their very existence puts their lives at risk. 🤣

I am about to unsubscribe and on my way out the door I am compelled to provide feedback. 2 things drove me away. 1) your constant categorizing people who don't have your passion as idiots or lazy or uninformed... 2) You shill way to much!

I love when they all get together to just shoot the breeze about speech writing. We definitely need more Cody cameos on the pod.

Ron Desantis always does something with his left hand while you are watching his right hand. I believe this stunt is working as cover for something else he has done

okay I'm confused. did they not reverse roe versus Wade because they didn't want the government involved in such personal decisions, but yet now they want a national abortion ban? is that not the government sticking its nose in personal business?

Social Security is pay as you go currently, we need innovative alternatives such as what Chile has implemented. Disagreeing on policy is not treason. Your happy with Bidens speech? It had a terrible perception amongst the public that pays attention.

people don't care think about the past. really. All they care about is the now because that's what they live in. so unless you remind them of the past, they don't know it. they don't think about it. they're busy living.

Jon, it's nuclear secrets at his "OPEN TO THE PUBLIC BEACH CLUB!" Saying beach house makes it seem more secure than it was.

Someone should have vetted Karine's responses for credibility before this podcast. You can't credibly talk about reducing inflation at the same time you're increasing spending in the "inflation reduction act". Laughable

lmao at "mideast peace means a Palestinian state" tell that to civilians getting murdered in Yemen and Syria. Palestinian statehood is also not a guarantee for peace for Israel. Fucking dumb.

I can't..... Wait... I can believe the hypocrisy of these guys saying the Republicans only want government to only hold their opponents accountable as they currently weaponize the FBI, DOJ, IRS to go after their political opponents. Yes Hillary had classified information that was probably hacked on her private server but no one would actually prosecute that. Yes the IRS targeted conservative groups illegally for audits, yes Eric Holder told congress to pound sand, ignored a subpoena, was held in contempt of congress and nothing happened, but sure it's Republicans that are letting their friends off the hook and prosecuting their political opponents.
