The Trump administration is gaslighting America and nothing makes sense any more. Today, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Congress doesn't have the authority to enforce a subpoena, upending the constitution. The president is celebrating a murderer and castigating peaceful protesters expressing their 1st Amendment rights. Nothing whatsoever makes sense in 2020... Today, I'm joined by Laura Flanders, whose show is moving to PBS this fall. We'll see if she can talk me down from this ledge...

Rick Perlstein has written the definitive history of the rise of conservatism in American politics. His fourth and allegedly final book in the series, "Reaganland: America's Right Turn" is just out, and I'm thrilled to welcome Rick Perlstein back to the show today.

Howie Klein of Down with Tyranny and the Blue America PAC joins Nicole every Thursday to talk politics. Today that means the RNC shit-show, Republicans jumping ship, progressives who can win in November and lots more. But we start the show today marveling at the awesomeness of professional athletes who are standing up to ending the epidemic of police violence against unarmed black people with Dave Zirin of The Nation and Edge of Sports.

Broadcaster and author Thom Hartmann is our guest today, joining in to discuss his newest book, "The Hidden History of Monopolies". But we begin the show with the latest news --both out of Kenosha, WI with Black Lives Matter, and about the RNC shit show, lying to Americans for two more nights.

Last week, the Democrats held their virtual convention; this week it's the Republicans turn. Who better to talk with about all the news being made than my friend, @GottaLaff. We get together on the air every Tuesday to commiserate and talk about what's happening in our very strange world.
