Berners attack Beto

Over the past week, a number of top Bernie Sanders supporters have launched what appears to be a coordinated attack on liberal firebrand Beto O’Rourke for allegedly being a neo-liberal establishment shill. (O’Rourke is arguably as liberal as Bernie, if not more so.) The effort appears intended to hurt O’Rourke’s possible race for president in 2020, and thus help Bernie’s.

We discuss this on today’s show, along with the NYT’s ongoing effort to appease Republicans, Trump’s sloppy tweets causing the stock market to plummet this week, and we conclude with a discussion of Eric Trump’s sudden concern for the sanctity of marriage.
