John plays a clip of Trump deflecting a question he doesn’t understand. He takes calls from Michael in the Bronx on the Trump indictments, Scott in Arkansas on the difference between a nationalist and a patriot, and Sean in California on affirmative action. Next he talks with Minnesota Senator Tina Smith. They chat about abortion rights, the Supreme Court, and the performative cruelty of Senator Tommy Tuberville. Then finally he interviews Florida House Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith. They discuss fighting for trans rights, protections for workers who suffer in the heat, and how to diffuse the crazy policies of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
