Last Thursday’s horrific suicide bombing revealed why we must get out of Afghanistan as quickly as possible. For the GOP it was an opportunity to sharpen their talking points in advance of the 2022 election; calling for Biden to resign a pathetic bone tossed to the party’s MAGA base. The reality is that it’s Trump and his GOP lackeys who are the real terrorists; spreading their election lies, allowing Covid to rage out of control while allowing the extremists in their party to metastasize. The fact is more death and chaos has occurred on their watch in the past year than all the US targeted terror attacks frankly, ever.

While Rep Indiana Rep Jim Banks, another MAGA blowhard has spent his time asking why Pelosi didn’t do a better job of protecting the capital.

The criminal indictment of the Trump Organization puts Donald Trump squarely in the crosshairs of legal jeopardy. But a wounded Trump is still a dangerous Trump; creating a new urgency to jumpstart his political life and remain viable as a candidate. He won’t run because he’s afraid to lose. But as long as his MAGA base thinks he’ll run, the more money he can raise. In addition, he can claim that the DA is only coming after him as a political vendetta. But to remain viable, Trump must appeal to an extremist base that is more prone to conspiracy thinking, violence, racism and hatred. All of this was on display last weekend at his first public rally and will only intensify as his legal troubles mount.

The Manhattan DA’s case against the Trump Organization and Donald Trump has put intense pressure on the former President as he finds himself increasingly cornered. The prospect of an indictment has forced him back out on the campaign trail as he seeks to shield himself from prosecution by spinning the case as yet another political witch hunt. At the same time, the GOP must reckon with the fact that for good or ill, Trump is still the center of the Republican universe and thus they need to change the narrative. In the past several months, the right has engaged in a propaganda war to white wash the history of the Trump presidency and what happened on January 6th. The result has been a steady drip of stunning and shameless lies. Finally, political strategist and Democratic stalwart Joe Trippi joins Mea Culpa to discuss the fall out caused by the GOP’s authoritarian crusade.

73: Why the GOP Killed the January 6th Commission + A Conversation with Don Lemon
5270
While a vast majority of Americans favored the establishment of a bi-partisan commission to investigate the January 6th Capital riot, the GOP is only interested in self-preservation. So the whitewash continues with Donald Trump and the usual suspects pumping out a counter narrative where, he not only won the election, but the activities of that day were peaceful and the agitators leftist radicals. If it sounds insane, that’s because it is. But 73% of Republican voters polled believe that’s the truth. Next, Michael looks at the Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene MAGA hate tour which they’ve billed the “America First Rally.” Should the GOP retake the House and Senate in 2022, this racist circus will be coming to an arena near you. Finally, CNN’s Don Lemon joins Mea Culpa to talk about his new book, “This is the Fire,” the madness of the modern GOP, the death of white supremacy and much, much more.

5422

The ouster of Liz Cheney from her House leadership position for refusing to accept Trump’s Big Election Lie is a frightening turning point in an already chaotic, political year. The GOP has abandoned all pretense of caring about democracy and has shackled itself to an insane, conspiracy driven, illiberal movement that threatens to destroy the party. This is all happening amidst an emboldened Trump who has triumphantly and aggressively shaped the party in his own image; purging any all dissent. The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur joins Mea Culpa to help Michael predict what will happen next.

67: Breaking!!! Are the Feds Ready to Flip Rudy? + A Conversation with MSNBC’S Jonathan Capehart
5254
Last week saw the reemergence of Donald Trump as he pushed the Big Lie from Mar A Lago and the GOP leadership forced its members to get in line or get out of the way. Liz Cheney tried to push back but found herself in the crosshairs of Kevin McCarthy who instead of moving on from the election has made it the central theme of the GOP. Meanwhile, the SDNY has found itself with a treasure trove of dirt inside Rudy Giuliani’s hard drive. Could their appointing of a so called, “Special Master,” to sort through files be a sign that they’re getting ready to flip Trump’s other former lawyer? Finally, MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart joins Mea Culpa to discuss the GOP’s sidelining of Liz Cheney, what happened to Tim Scott and so much more.

Politics makes strange bedfellows. Who would’ve thought that Liz Cheney, who voted with Trump 97% of the time during his four years in office would become a liberal hero for standing up to his lies and autocratic desires? And Facebook makes a big show out of its decision to uphold the former president’s suspension. But it’s all just a big sideshow for the fact that Zuckerberg and Co don’t want to have to change how they do business. Now they’re in a nightmare scenario of their own making. Finally, progressive superstar journalist David Corn drops by Mea Culpa to discuss Don Jr’s legal troubles, the Facebook decision and much, much more.

But now, one year later, what’s even more insane, is that there are people who still want more of this guy. This after all the poison he injected into our system.

A collective sigh of relief was exhaled across the nation as Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges. Typically the reaction between the right and left shows just how deeply fractured the nation has become. At the heart of all this are the racist MAGA conspiracies being spun about how Black Lives Matter threatened to burn down American cities if Chauvin was not found guilty. Tucker Carlson melts down on air about the subject while claiming that Chauvin was lynched by the left. You can’t make this stuff up. Unfortunately, it’s what many believe.

Last Wednesday's MAGA insurrection may have been the end point for Trump's divisive rhetoric but is likely the beginning of a much wider war. Within the ranks of the rioters was a more hardcore group of extremists who were bent on finding and exterminating lawmakers driven into hiding inside the Capitol. Pictures show rioters clad in tactical gear and Kevlar vests carrying zip ties to round up Senators. That they probably had inside help is a chilling development only now being revealed.

4683
The madness of King Donald arrived in the state of Georgia and has morphed into a Frankenstein's monster that threatens to devour the Republican Party and doom their electoral chances in a pair of Senate run off races to be held January 5th. After releasing the Kraken of conspiracy and unsupported allegations of election fraud which saw members of their own party face death threats and online harassment, Trump proxies are now apoplectic at their own lawyers for advocating that voters boycott the election until these allegations are settled. Republican Party Reptiles like Newt Gingrich, who eagerly jumped on the conspiracy bandwagon weeks ago, now find themselves back peddling furiously; trying to put the genie back in the bottle. But it's too late, leaving us to wonder, "has the whole world gone crazy?"

24: Trump’s Legal Team is a Hot Mess November 23, 2020
4545

This week on Mea Culpa, Michael finds himself at peak frustration as the Trump Train barrels this country towards oblivion. How can a nation that is built upon reason find itself in such an unreasonable position, where a two-bit, wannabe despot can work the corners of our legal system to halt the entire transition of power? With the country exhausted from the trauma of this never ending election and the looming specter of death from COVID, we all are stuck in a terrible limbo. Searching for answers and rational thought, Michael speaks with Harvard University Professor of Constitutional Law, Laurence Tribe. One of the main architects of Al Gore's recount fight from the 2000 election, Tribe has argued 35 cases in front of the Supreme Court and finds himself mired in the current mess; advising the Biden team from afar as one frivolous lawsuit after another is filed. His words provide a balm for the ever present irritation of Trump and his team of legal crows.

It's the Mea Culpa Week in Review. T-minus 12 days and counting until election day and Donald Trump is clearly losing badly. While it ain't over till it's over, this one appears to be headed towards a landslide victory for Joe Biden. One of the likely reasons, suburban women have abandoned Donald Trump; defecting in historic numbers. This threatens not just the presidency for Trump but down ballot races as well; suggesting a possible blue wave that would fundamentally reorder Washington as we know it. For the main event, Michael speaks with Olivia Troye, former Homeland Security advisor to Vice President Pence and Covid Task Force member. She resigned from the White house just eight weeks ago and describes a place that was more cult headquarters than presidential home. And where facts are not facts unless they adhere to the Trumpian narratives provided. Troye endured years inside the belly of the beast; doing her best to make a difference only to be stymied by Trump's increasingly incompetent actions. She tells Mea Culpa the whole saga.

Feeling abandoned and utterly alone, Cohen hits bottom at FCI Otisville; believing his life is over. Then, to his surprise, six months after reporting to custody he receives a letter from Rosie the day the President is impeached. Find out what happens next on the season premiere of Mea Culpa!
