Good episode? Give it some love!
A new poll shows Republicans behind a staggering 30 points with women voters in the lead up to the midterms. Now, the White House is considering advice to practice some affirmative action and explicitly recruit a woman to replace UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Despite railing against Obama for inviting rapper Common to the White House, Sean Hannity now says Kanye's visit to Trump's oval office was "phenomenal" -- guess he likes the new Kanye. The Trump team is floating a new defense in Robert Mueller's probe into Russian influence of the 2016 election: that publishing stolen DNC emails is within their first amendment right so long as they didn't steal them. Liz Plank and comedian Chuck Nice join Ari to preview some of the best and worst ads of the 2018 midterms. Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man speaks about the war on drugs, police violence, and Martin Shkreli buying his rare album for $2 million. NBC's Richard Engle shares some new reporting about Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi’s alleged murder. And Ari revisits some of the best moments from Michael Eric Dyson's epic sermon about Kanye Thursday night.
