Out d'Coup | PA Senate Passes Abortion Ban and Paycheck Deception Bills; White Nationalists Go to College; Trumplandia Files; Daylin Leach Launches #ShitGibbon; and, more!
It’s Friday, February 10, 2017. I am Kevin Mahoney, editor and founder of Raging Chicken Press and Raging Chicken Media. Each week I talk to our Capitol muckraker-in-chief, Sean Kitchen, about the good, the bad, and the ugly in state and national politics.
Week three since the Trump Organization took control of the White House and the floods have not receded. This week, more confirmations - including a historic VP tie breakers and a middle of the night vote. Oh, yeah, and now we have a racist Attorney General. Right-wing organization launches $2 million ad campaign to get their guy in the Supreme Court. More attacks on the media and Melania lays bare her plans to use her position to cash in. Indivisible protests grow. And PA’s own Daylin Leach has the term for Trump - “shitgibbon” - hashtag that one folks.
And it just gets crazier her in PA. PA Senate passes a 20 week abortion ban. That bill has its origins in the national Right to Life Committee - something Sean has been reporting for over a year. We talk about what happened this week with SB 3 and what comes next. PA Senate also passes Paycheck Deception bill...just one step to step closer to Right to Work. And, white nationalists look to recruit fellow fascists at Berks County colleges and universities. All that and so much more on today’s show.
