Truckistan Falls

Happy Presidents Day! Today, Eric and Jacob discuss why we call Washington's birthday celebration Presidents Day and why some on the Left want to rebrand it or cancel it entirely. They also cover the latest neoliberal panic, as The New York Times and The Atlantic ponder on how to weasel out of the international and domestic dumpster fire they helped create. After throwing some well-deserved shade at a certain DC-based conservative outlet, they dive into the biggest story of the week: the fascistic crackdown on Ottowa's short-lived Truckistan.
