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

As the US death toll approaches one million, Trump, Fox and parts of the country are rallying to reopen and refuse masks. Author and editor-at-large for The Daily Beast, Molly Jong-Fast has been keeping up with it all and joins me on the show today to talk about the latest coronavirus news, Matt Lauer’s attempt at a return and New York City’s resilience

Life-long Manchester resident Rep. Chris Pappas made history when he became the first LGBTQ representative for the state. Saturday, he will be a commencement speaker at in Campus Pride’s national “Lavender Graduation” for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) and ally graduates of the Class of 2020. He joins me on the show today to talk about this event and more from New Hampshire and Capitol Hill.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with Trump’s refusal to wear a mask on his tour of the Ford factory, Trump attacking Michigan’s mail-in ballot application, and discussions of Biden’s VP shortlist.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is Eleanor Clift the Washington correspondent for The Daily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.  

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been a leading force for fellow Democrats, improving public health and addressing the impact of COVID-19 at this critical moment. He joins me to talk about the latest in the pandemic response and more.

Plus, political strategist and friend of SiriusXM Progress, Joe Sudbay, checks in before he guest hosts the Dean Obeidallah Show tonight.
