In this episode we actually cover news that’s… not entirely depressing. We’ll discuss Nina Turner’s massive lead in Ohio’s Democratic Party primary and laugh at all of the Republicans Ken Klippenstein trolled on Memorial Day. But it’s not all fun and games this episode; we’ll discuss the growing sentiment within the GOP for a Myanmar-style military coup here in the U.S., Tucker Carlson’s anti-vax hysteria, and Kyrsten Sinema’s pathetic defense of the filibuster. Finally, we’ll kick off Pride month with the left’s favorite self-loathing closeted homosexual: Jesse Lee Peterson. Enjoy!
