Donald Trump recently tweeted that an impeachment proceeding would instigate a second Civil War. This has been a topic of discussion on the right for a long time now, but it hasn’t warranted much attention because it’s such an absurd proposition. However, this week we discuss it and a Daily Beast feature about where the military’s loyalties lie--and why: (source https://www.thedailybeast.com/if-trumps-rage-brings-civil-war-where-will-the-military-stand)

We also discuss Jacob Wohl’s recent caper and the fact that his extreme himbo Marine veteran’s sordid Elizabeth Warren tale fell apart instantly. Why? According to Nate, it’s because the O’Keefe-style grifter ecosystem has changed and become a bit trickier.

This week’s Patreon bonus features yet another visit from Marine Todd, in which he reads a famously insane veteran outrage clickbait piece. We also have a discussion about how the veteran outrage business cycle works, plus a special visit from emotionally-evolved PhD student Marine Theodore.
