Trump Holds VP Auditions

In This Episode

Ceasefire negotiations hit a major sticking point as Israel prepares an invasion of Rafah over Joe Biden’s objections. Judge Merchan holds Donald Trump in contempt again and warns that jail time may be necessary to enforce the rules. Trump holds a retreat at Mar-a-Lago where he compares the Biden administration to Nazis and holds another public audition for running mate. Noted puppy-killer Kristi Noem gets a mention, and so does Sen. Mike Lee’s hair. Then, Vote Save America’s Shaniqua McClendon stops by to discuss the big launch of Organize or Else—the easiest and most effective way to get involved in this election.
