1975 - MR News & Thanksgiving w/ "Cindy Hyde-Smith"
Before the MR Crew heads to Mar-A-Lago for Thanksgiving, we brief you on the latest stories including Trump using the DOJ to target political enemies, Matt Whitaker's dark money slush fund, and how Trump's acceptance of the Khasshogi killing green lights murder for the world's autocrats. We're live at 12:00 pm EST. We begin with a clip where Ben Sasse stinks it up on late night, stating the government should function "as the founders intended." Sam then breaks down how the right wing media is portraying Trump's MBS pardon in the Khasshogi murder. Then, we head up to Massachusetts watch Seth Moulton's constituents boo him as the congressman tries to explain his relentless opposition Nancy Pelosi. Finally, a special guest, GOP Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith calls into the program to tell us about her debate last night and why she read straight from her notes. Sam then asks Hyde-Smith if she thinks he has a chance in his 2022 primary challenge against Chuck Schumer. And in Fun Half: Raygun has a bone to pick with Sam, Sam's 2022 Senate campaign video is bringing MR fans to tears, Sam talks Worcester with a caller, Steny Hoyer is a corporatist and we should focus progressive power on keeping him from becoming majority leader, an ex-libertarian caller explains how Ayn Rand turned him off libertarianism, a black caller thought Matt was black, eastern California is the state's last bastion of Republicanism, the GOP has no real morals, and student debt forgiveness is not a moral hazard.

2009 - Brexit, Great Quittin', and the US Shutdown w/ Libby Watson
Today on a Michael Thursday Libby Watson joins the show to discuss the latest on Brexit and how the shutdown is effecting life in DC. We're live at 12:00 PM EST. Libby joins Michael to discuss the latest on Brexit and where we go from the recently narrowly defeated no-confidence vote. The Tories and Liberal Democrats are terrified of new general elections and particularly one where the Labour party is led by the Absolute Boy, Jeremy Corbin. At the same time, the EU does not appear to be budging on its Brexit deal. A no-deal Brexit is becoming a more likely reality with each passage day. Libby explains the role of UKIP in Brexit and Nigel Farage, whose party has no power in parliament but is constantly on television to explain Brexit to viewers. And with all the attention on Teresa May's role and failures in Brexit, David Cameron--who held the Brexit referendum--has really walked out of frame without much attention. Michael and Libby end their conversation talking about the New York Times' failures to call racism out when they see it, the White House staff and its revolving door with K Street. In the Fun Half: A new listener-made Steven Crowder challenge video, how MR got one listener off Sam Harris, why we need a global-left solidarity with the Rojava Kurds, Raygun shares the story of his client who is a mother of six who is in the process of being deported by ICE, Steny Hoyer needs his retirement gold watch, The View's two fail-daughters say the 42% of Americans who want the wall are not racist, Tucker Carlson explains why the Green New Deal is a Russian psy-op, plus your calls and IMs! 11 AM Majority Report tomorrow!
