Amanda Marcotte on the NRA’s grifting and Trump’s dangerous conspiracy cult

This week, Elizabeth Preza and Joshua Holland kick off the show with a look at the Covid relief bill that’s stalled in Congress amid Republican infighting and Trump’s bonkers interview with Jonathan Swan.

Then we’re joined by Salon columnist Amanda Marcotte to talk about why conservatives keep falling for obvious grifts and why the Alex Jonesification of the GOP will almost certainly result in scattered terror attacks if Trump loses in November.
