In the second week since his acquittal, Donald Trump stopped trying to hide his corruption and started flaunting his crimes in plain sight. This week, Stu and AJ discuss the accelerating descent into tyranny and the sincerity of William Barr’s smack down of the president (spoiler: there was absolutely no sincerity).

Take Action: Even many Senate Republicans acknowledge that Trump’s actions on Ukraine were far from perfect but, they insist, they do not rise to the level of impeachment. Time to call their bluff! Call 202.224.3121 and tell your senators to censure the president for withholding Congressionally appropriated military aide as he demanded an investigation into a political opponent.

Moment of Uplift: In the hyper-masculine world of professional sports, NBA legend Dwyane Wade is celebrating his trans daughter Zaya and shedding powerful light on the wonderful uniqueness in each of us.

This is your country for the week of February 17, 2020!

Produced by Sam Graber
Engineered by Mark Charles, recorded at the Ramshackler Room, Louisville, KY
