Breaking!!! Trump’s “Big Lie” is the Grift that Keeps On Grifting + A Conversation With WSJ White House Reporter Michael Bender
01:30:45
Michael breaks down the Washington Post’s latest revelations on Trump fundraising practices; detailing how the former president has “raised” over $75 million since January off the back of his Big Lie; promising contributors that their donations would be used to fund the ridiculous Arizona recount and other dubious election fraud endeavors.

Experts believe Trump is living off the proceeds of his latest grift and needs to continue preaching his Big Lie to stay financially afloat.

The GOP's Reckless Imbeciles Imperil Jan. 6 Commission + A Conversation with John Fugelsang
01:36:48
In a remarkable set of events, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two of the six representatives chosen by House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy to sit on the January 6th Commission. McCarthy chose Ohio Rep, Jacketless Gym Jordan who not only voted to overturn the election AFTER the insurrection but has repeatedly made up insane shit about the FBI being responsible for the riot. 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. This is akin to putting people who believe 9/11 was an inside job on that commission. Complete and total idiocy. Well, Pelosi kicked them all in the ass and now they got nothing. Later, SiriusXM’s John Fugelsang joins Mea Culpa to discuss the creepiness of Jim Jordan and why the Evangelicals still love Trump.

A Wounded Trump is a Dangerous Trump + A Conversation with David Plouffe
01:33:50
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.

Inside the GOP’s Plot to White Wash January 6th + A Conversation with Joe Trippi
01:41:15
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.

Why the GOP Killed the January 6th Commission + A Conversation with Don Lemon
01:33:59
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.

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

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.

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.

With just one week to go before the start of Donald Trump’s second Impeachment, the GOP has once again rallied behind the former president; ending the bi-partisan furor that promised to force Trump out of American politics once and for all.

They have threatened to primary and expel any congressmen who step out of line.

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?"

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

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.

Under Bill Barr though, Halpern says the Justice Department became just another appendage of the Trump administration with Barr acting as the president's sword and shield; saving him from the Mueller Report, impeachment and countless other high crimes and misdemeanors while intervening to save Trump's corrupt cronies like Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Michael Flynn from prison.

01:20:08
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.
