Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Jasmyne Keimig talk about Elizabeth Warren’s high-stakes attempt to both prove her Native American ancestry and skewer Trump at the same time. It hasn't gone smoothly for Warren, and it raises the question: Has Trump achieved a bullying check-mate on this one?

After that, millennial-adjacent Chase Burns tries to explain to Dan why he’s not a totally perfect, always-and-forever voter. Good luck, Chase!

Finally, A Star Is Born. Blabbermouth has some feelings about the new Lady Gaga + Bradley Cooper extravaganza.

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