He discusses the hurricanes battering the east coast, former chief of staff to former Vice President Mike Pence – Marc Short on CNN unraveling the Republican excuses for trying to overturn the 2020 election, and Vivek Ramaswamy getting caught lying on Fox News. Then, he interviews The Nation contributor Amanda Moore. She focuses on far-right extremism. She reported undercover as a MAGA supporter for nearly a year before being outed by Antifawatch.net. Her new feature, “Undercover with the New Alt-Right” appears in the latest edition of The Nation magazine. Then Max chats with Bill in New Jersey on abortion and Trump. Next, he talks about President Biden touting the prescription drug reduction that will happen as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.
