Lovett or Leave It - May 29, 2021 - 1:07:15

Scientists ask for a fact-based debate over the origins of the pandemic. Manchin and Sinema ask Republicans to be reasonable. Surprise! They were all very disappointed. Akilah Hughes is back to break down the week's news. Ashley Parker of the Washington Post stops by to talk about how the Biden White House works. And we quiz a listener on some of the most absurd scare tactics used by Fox News from red meat to mask mandates. A Grand Jury in New York? Terrific.
