Episode 131 talks to Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal about what Democrats need to do to protect "Dreamers" and win back the House. Also discussed: why Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury is such a sensation and whether liberals have lost their minds over "President Oprah." Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images


Really? Oprah as President of the United States? Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders get it—but they also think some lefties are being a bit reckless by elevating celebrity above all things (including, for example, the small matter of political beliefs).

After that, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is on the show to explain the renewed fight over “Dreamers,” what Democrats are going to do about it, how progressives can take back the US House in 2018, and why "we have got to stay out in the streets."

Speaking of progressive strategy in 2018, Dan Savage is concerned that the Blabbermouth podcast itself is not walking its talk on political action—and he wants to change that, starting today.

Finally: Fire and Fury. Why, exactly, is this sensational book by journalist Michael Wolff so damn sensational?

Oh, and PS: There's now a Blabbermouth Facebook group! Join in and yell at everyone over there, too!

Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
