Eli Sanders, Katie Herzog, and Rich Smith consider the “Creepy Joe” situation. There are now four public accusations against likely Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden from women who say he touched them inappropriately at political events. And, as we already know, there’s no shortage of handsy Biden photos and videos out there from his long period in the public eye.

Should Biden drop his plans to run for president? Should he stay out of the already crowded Democratic presidential primary for solid reasons that are totally separate from the “Creepy Joe” situation? Should he be held to “The Franken Standard,” or to “The Trump Standard”? All is discussed.

After that, Mitch McConnell’s is going to use the “nuclear option” (again) to help Trump pack the federal courts. And Trump, after promising (again) to repeal Obamacare, now says he has a secret plan to replace it with something better—but will only reveal his secret plan after he’s reelected.

Finally, Jasmyne Keimig and Charles Mudede talk about Jordan Peele’s provocative and genre-expanding horror movie, Us.

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