The Circus returned tonight…oh man I made a tea.
The episode opened in a restaurant…as they always do (minus Mark Halperin…single tear) but the restaurant was in…Moscow!!
They’re investigating this idea of a new cold war between US and Russia.
The first interview is the editor in chief of RT (Russia Today) a channel my dad and I will occasionally watch. I watch Chris Hedges’ On Contact a NY Times writer and social critic. Excellent show…you’d dig it. Chris wrote Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt a dense and deep book on…well revolt and ruckus. Highly Recommended.
Anyways they asked the Ed-In-Chief if the recent Russian election was fair and free: she looked at them and said point blank: our elections are as free and fair as your American elections are.
OH SNAP! That’s a table flip.
The Circus quickly went to the next interview.
