Richard and Adam close the book on the Trump years — except for the whole post-presidential impeachment thing. And Richard elaborates his case for regulating Twitter as a “common carrier.” Looking ahead to what the new Biden Administration might bring about, they both already disagree with some of the Administration’s day-one policies. Does the end of Trump’s era, and the beginning of Biden’s, mark the end of Richard’s and Adam’s own “reasonable disagreements” with each other? Surely not! But the disagreements will be fewer and farther between.
A day after rioters stormed the Capitol to disrupt Congress’s certification of Joe Biden’s election, Richard and Adam reflect on yesterday’s tragic effects, and the path forward. They also discuss the Democratic Party’s victories in Georgia, winning control of the Senate; and President-elect Biden’s nomination of Merrick Garland to be Attorney General.
