Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick off this week's show lamenting how utterly exhausting it is that the Donald Trump show just keeps dragging on and on like a horror movie monster that just won't die. They also look at a wild presser by the few remaining lawyers still working for the regime, who are not the best and brightest. 

Then we're joined by Princeton historian Kevin Kruse to put this crucial moment in America's often turbulent history into some perspective.

This week, we talk about election, the election and then discuss some details about the 2020 election. There's no other news anyway. 
 
Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick things off recounting the emotional roller-coaster rides they took on Tuesday night. 
 
And then Salon columnist Heather "Digby" Parton joins us to talk about Trump's ham-fisted attempt to steal it, how Dems countered, the new Tea Party movement demanding that ballots be counted or not counted, depending on the state, and what might be ahead as we move to the next battle -- two Senate runoff races in Georgia.
