Had to get a little serious today, y’all. Hope that’s OK. But there’s so much happening in the world, and recently, alt-right trolls have started attacking performers (who have one notable commonality — they’re vocally anti-Trump on Twitter) with disingenuous smear campaigns.
You can call this liberal tears, whatever you want. Doesn’t change the truth of what’s happening. So we discuss it.
That’s not to lump in our later conversation about Chris Hardwick into that problem. That’s a different situation entirely, but another with complexity to it beyond the extreme shouting you may be reading on social media. So we try to have a civil discourse about that issue, as well.
Finally, we get into Sacha Baron Cohen’s new show, Who Is America?, and laugh (through tears) about the willingness many political shills share regarding the selling of their souls.
Guys, girls, we have to communicate better. That’s the point of this episode. Don’t feed the trolls, learn about nuance, be genuine, listen to each other, and be willing to have a goddamn conversation. Also, vote.
