John discusses the defense of insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt by Trump and the GOP, the Tallahassee School that fired their principle after a parent complained a Renaissance art lesson was pornographic, and the testy congressional hearing over whether to ban the TikTok app entirely in the US due to national security concerns. Then he chats with Prof. Corey Brettschneider about the many Trump investigations. Next he welcomes back political analyst Dr. Jason Nichols and they talk about Texas schools changing laws to allow discrimination, the Trump narrative about his arrest, and Young Turks commentator Ana Kasparian tweeting that she finds certain trans-inclusive ways of addressing ‘women’ as degrading. Then finally he speaks about the authorization of military force in Iraq being finally repealed. He takes calls from Jim in California, and Riley in Montana.
