Michael is joined by The Intercept’s Jon Schwarz to discuss the shockingly unshocking report this week that the Saudi operatives who murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi had received State Department-approved paramilitary training. They also discuss the recent foolish attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar, the meaning and background of the phrase “moral equivalence,” the AP’s cowardly firing of Emily Wilder over her college advocacy for Palestinian human rights, and lies we are being told about “worker shortages.” Schwarz is a friend and former colleague of Mike’s, having worked on “Capitalism: A Love Story” and as the editor of MichaelMoore.com.
