Trump Promises "A Unified Reich"

In This Episode

Donald Trump is forced to remove a video promising “a unified Reich” as Joe Biden and Kamala Harris go on the attack against Trump’s latest nod to Nazi language. Dan and Addisu Demissie discuss how Democrats should capitalize on Trump’s mistakes, including an interview where Trump left the door open to bans on contraception. Then, Jon chats with friends of the pod Brian Wallach, Sandra Abrevaya, and Katie Couric about their new documentary on turning Brian’s ALS diagnosis into an opportunity to organize, advocate, and push for a cure.
