This week Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco celebrate Trump’s ban from Facebook, discuss Liz Cheney and what we’re calling anarchy in the GOP, share their reactions to that scary New York Times story saying we’ll never reach herd immunity, and honor the teachers in their lives. Plus, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand joins to discuss sexual assault in the military and why opposition to her bill to improve the system is melting away. Then, writers and comedians Lindy West and Kara Klenk stop by to talk about Mother’s Day, what it means to be a mom, and what it means to choose not to. Finally Erin makes the case against McMansions and other petty thoughts in I Feel Petty.
