VisuNews Podcast – RNC, Racism and Steamed Hams

Aaron Cynic and I chat calmly about The Purge-like Republican National Convention. How there was, unsurprisingly no voices outside of the Trump cult,  the terrifying world of MAGA, and two days of weird “TRUMP’S NOT RACIST” and “TRUMP HAS BLACK FRIENDS.”

Then we move on to the linguistics of “officer-involved shootings,” well-coiffed racist Richard Spencer’s PR move “endorsing” Biden and finally and likely more importantly we discuss Steamed Hams.
