Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

As the Supreme Court wraps up the term, new decisions in Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru and Little Sisters of the Poor Saints Peter and Paul Home v. Pennsylvania will have a huge impact on employment discrimination and access to birth control. Vox’s Senior Correspondent Ian Millhiser breaks down what the latest rulings and their implications for civil rights, healthcare and more.

As record numbers of Coronavirus cases in Florida put pressure on the state and its hospitals, Gov. DeSantis and Trump keep minimizing the issue and pushing to reopen even more aggressively. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL-22) has been advocating that the state and nation take on the crisis with testing, precautions and more solutions. He joins me to talk about the response to the Coronavirus and more from Capitol Hill.

Trump has made overt calls to white supremacy, pushed for more authoritarian control and refused to acknowledge or address Russian bounties on US soldiers. Yet, the press coverage of these stories fails to convey the urgency of these issues. Media critic and creator of PressRun: the home of fearless media commentary, Eric Boehlert, has been scrutinizing the coverage and joins me on the show to discuss these and more top stories.

On Monday, the Supreme Court overturned a highly restrictive Louisiana abortion law in June Medical Services v. Russo. While this is a victory for this law, anti-abortion forces continue to organize around the nation and more court challenges to reproductive freedoms are in the pipeline.

MSNBC Political Analyst, Chief Public Affairs Officer of MoveOn.org and Obama Administration alum, Karine Jean-Pierre, recently joined the Joe Biden2020 campaign as a senior advisor. She joins me on the show today to talk about the campaign, gearing up for the election, Pride Month during a pandemic and more.


Exploring the history of the fight for gay rights, we’re focusing in on a key movement that began a generation before Stonewall. Author and historian, Eric Cervini, chronicles the story of astronomer Frank Kameny, the systematic persecution of gay federal employees, and the movement to fight it in his new book The Deviant's War: The Homosexual vs. the United States of America. He joins me on the show to talk all about it.

Trump’s Tulsa rally was a flop and he’s falling in the polls as the number of coronavirus cases keeps climbing in many parts of the country. Editor-in-chief and columnist at the Michigan Advance, Susan Demas, argues that we’re seeing him struggle because “Trump was elected to hurt the ‘right people.’ Now he’s hurting his base.” She joins me on the show today to talk more about the shift and the view from Michigan.

This Pride Month we turn to Army veteran and former press secretary for the Human Rights Campaign Charlotte Clymer to talk about the Supreme Court’s ruling against LGBTQ discrimination, the Trump administration’s latest attack on transgender rights and her USA Today op-ed responding to author J.K. Rowling’s bigoted statements about trans people. She joins me on the show to discuss these topics and more.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened from major primary election energy for progressive candidates to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Louisiana abortion law to a vote on DC statehood.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.
