About this Episode

After Katie provides an update about her elderly Trump-and-guns-loving neighbor, the hosts discuss a canine controversy Andrew Yang got himself into that features some of the very most annoying people on Twitter. Then they talk about Facebook's efforts to censor a news article about a Black Lives Matter cofounder's real estate holdings. The back half of the episode is dedicated to Lindsay Ellis's recent social-justice troubles, which, if you squint, are really stupid.
