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

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director at the new HuffPost Personal and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at HuffPost.

The Trump administration has taken on characteristics of an authoritarian regime, but the tendencies were brewing long before the “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan became popular. Jacob Urowsky Professor of Philosophy at Yale University Jason Stanley argues that fascist politics are running rampant in America today—and spreading around the world. In his new book How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them, he identifies the ten pillars of fascist politics, and charts their horrifying rise and deep history. He joins me on the show today to talk all about.

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

When the Blue Wave swept the nation, it crested in California. One of the exciting new representatives to the sunshine state is businessman, philanthropist, attorney, and tech entrepreneur, Harley Rouda, who unseated incumbent Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher to represent California’s 48th congressional district. He joins me on the show today to talk about his victory, his top priorities for the district and hopes for the new congressional session.

Even before he was elected, Donald Trump has pushed a hateful, anti-immigrant agenda, from the Muslim travel ban to the horrific family separation policy to militarizing the US-Mexico border before the midterm election. Host of SiriusXM Progress’ Affirmative ReactionXorje Olivares, launched a campaign with the Refugee Services of Texas to help individuals in limbo at the border. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

Ever since questions about Russian involvement in the 2016 election first surfaced, the legitimacy of Trump’s election has been questioned. Some politicians have called for impeachment, while others caution against it. While an integral part of the laws behind the government, the impeachment and removal of the president is a rare and complicated procedure. Samuel Ashe Distinguished Professor in Constitutional Law at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, Michael Gerhardt, wrote Impeachment: What Everyone Needs to Know. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

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

Trump’s Russia ties and hush money payments have already been talked about, and yet, he remains in office. Now, the latest Mueller investigation developments have made these even more concrete. As the investigation appears to be closing in on Trump, co-editor of The American Prospect, author and professor at Brandeis University Robert Kuttner writes about the latest developments in the investigation, and why he thinks Trump will be out of office by November 2020. He joins me on the show today to talk all about it.


Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened—the Mueller investigation memos on Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort with sentencing recommendations and details about their involvement, the impending vacancy of the White House Chief of Staff post, and Wisconsin Republicans’ power grab in state government.  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.

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

Noah Michelson, the Editorial Director at the new HuffPost Personal and Co-host of the Love + Sex Podcast returns to the show as he does every Thursday to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines over at HuffPost.

Yesterday, in a direct assault on democracy, Wisconsin’s Republican-controlled legislature rejected the will of the people and passed a bill to seize power from incoming Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who defeated Republican Gov. Scott Walker in the Blue Wave that swept the nation.  The bill, once it is signed into law by Gov. Walker will stop the newly elected Democratic Governor from being able to change state assistance policy and from being able to withdraw from a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act, two of the main things he campaigned on.  Joining me today to talk all about this un-American power grab and so much more is Democratic Congressman Mark Pocan of Wisconsin.


From boasting about the size of his penis to releasing records of his testosterone levels, Trump’s rhetoric and behavior exude toxic masculinity, and according to new research his behavior also seems to have struck a chord with some male voters, specifically the ones who are secretly insecure about their manhood.  Joining me today to talk all about this research and Trump’s appeal to men with fragile masculinity is Eric Knowles, who is an Associate Professor of Psychology at New York University, and who along with Sarah DiMuccio conducted extensive research into Trump’s male supporters.

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

Last night, Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed a two-part sentencing memo for Trump's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, outlining his assistance with investigations and recommending no jail time. The memo offers new information about the Russia investigation’s progress and next steps. Independent journalist reporting on national security issues Marcy Wheeler of EmptyWheel joins me on the show today to talk all about it.

Trump has touted himself “Tariff Man” as he continues to put pressure on trade as a remedy to America’s economic anxieties. Author and senior associate for International Health at the National Bureau of Asian Research, Benjamin Shobert, writes about the dangerous inclination to pin such problems on China instead of looking to America’s own insecurities about the economy, the government, terrorism and national identity. He joins me on the show today to discuss his new book Blaming China: It Might Feel Good but It Won’t Fix America’s Economy.
