It’s US election time and even though Joe Biden is on track to win, Donald Trump appears to have picked up at least an extra 7 million votes compared to 2016.
Why did this happen and what does the left have to learn from now eternal Trumpism?
Also we look at Australia’s top US election commentary from Karl Stefanovic, Alan Jones Joe Hockey and Malcolm Turnbull.
The “Cushion the Blow” Budget!
Jobs, tax cuts, record deficits, zombie businesses, irresponsible lending, axing kids TV shows, blow cushioning – the 2020 budget really has something to confuse and annoy everyone! We break down the big night and look at all the ideologically driven policies designed to turn Australia into a nation of nothing but tradies and landlords.
New episode out: Australia’s COVID-19 political blame game continues, with thousands of Aussies stranded overseas left to fend for themselves while back home the embattled aged care minister Richard Colbeck keeps walking out of questioning.
Also we put the spin on some recent news to make it good-er!
New ep: Scott Morrison introduces paid pandemic leave, except it doesn’t apply to anyone useful, already existed and achieves nothing.
Also: Australia closes its state borders, masks become mandatory and Karl Stefanovic attempts the clunkiest coronavirus-related segue of all time (hint: it involves the Muppets!)
New episode out: While Victoria faces a horrible virus second wave and New South Wales plays whack-a-mole with outbreaks, the Morrison government gives us a mini-budget full of massive cutbacks in the middle of a recession. Can austerity, tax cuts AND tax rises help get Australia out of recession? Also Stefan Pazur stops by to plug his new spin-off podcast ARTS FIGHTERS.
We’re back with a look at the blame game over the second Melbourne Lockdown and an indepth analysis on the Eden Monaro by-election battle for nothing changing.
Australia is in its first recession in almost 30 years and the governments solution is for boomers to renovate their kitchens.
Meanwhile in America, the widespread protests against the killing of George Floyd have lead Donald Trump to push the country towards civil war, with his police literally hitting out at Australian news media in the process. Good thing we live in Australia where that would never happen, says Scott Morrison.
