When Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin did a gag with a mask resembling Trump that was covered in fake blood two years ago, it unleashed a backlash from the president to the media to law enforcement that put a hold on her career and her freedoms. She’s back with a new “docu-comedy” detailing the event and featuring her new comedy materials in Kathy Griffin: A Hell Of A Story, which will be airing in theaters on July 31st. She joins me on the show today to talk all about the movie, being a warrior for the first amendment and much more.


As this weekend’s tweet storm demonstrated, Trump’s racism and lies are right out in the open, and yet, the media fails to call them out clearly. Media critic and Daily Kos contributor Eric Boehlert joins me on the show to talk all about how the media are covering Trump’s racist attack and more top news.

Back in July of 2018, Rachel Bitecofer’s innovative forecasting model raised eyebrows by predicting some four months before the midterm election that Democrats would pick up 42 seats in the House of Representatives. In hindsight, that may not seem such a bold prediction, but when her forecast was released, people were still having a robust debate as to whether the Blue Wave would be large enough for Democrats to pick up the 23 seats they needed to take control of the House of Representatives and return the Speaker’s gavel to Nancy Pelosi. It’s also important to note that not only did she predict that Democrats would gain nearly double the seats they needed, but she also identified a specific list of Republican seats Democrats would flip.  Now, Rachel is back at again and based on her model’s 2018 performance, and the theory that structures it, she seem well poised to tackle the 2020 presidential election – 16 months out.  Rachel joins me on the show today to talk all about her 2018 results and what she is seeing ahead of the 2020 election.  Rachel is the Assistant Director of the Wason Center for Public Policy and Lecturer in Government at Christopher Newport University.
