Episode #6×44: Thanksgiving Plans, Trump Kinda Concedes, Movie Release Changes

Just in time for Thanksgiving: Twitter launches FLEETS, Rudy Giuliani melts on live television, and Barack Obama’s A Promised Land drops.

  • Taboo word of the week is back! This week’s taboo word: Biden.
  • How are we all handling Thanksgiving this year? While the panel tries to plan a safe and enjoyable holiday, we’re 👀 at the people who are having large family celebrations.
  • We predict that the closest thing we’ll ever get to a concession from Trump is this tweet.
  • What does it mean if the President kinda concedes, but recounts and court challenges are still happening?
  • Trump really is tired of winning: not content with losing Georgia twice, he is requesting a third recount after the state certified its results last Friday.
  • Don’t fuck with Detroit: the tale of how a gridlock to certify Wayne County’s election results turned into a Zoombombing good time.
  • In happy news, Dr. Fauci confirms that Santa is immune to coronavirus, and can still make the rounds this year!
  • Vaccine check in – are we still feeling cautiously optimistic?
  • Laura’s rage of the week: 80% of inmates in Texas county jails who died of coronavirus had not yet been convicted of a crime, and were in jail simply because they couldn’t afford bail.
  • What to say to people who say you’re being “too safe” right now: Laura wants to say “fuck ’em,” but Huffington Post has some (perhaps) more helpful recommendations.
  • Pam reports that some California counties are now on mandatory curfew, prompting us to wonder if covid only comes out after 10 PM?
  • Universal has struck a deal with some major theatrical chains to shorten the theatrical exclusivity window, a win for everyone who prefers watching new movies from the comfort of home.
  • This week’s recommendations will keep your feeds clean, your liver busy, and your Christmas lights simple: Tweetbot (Andrew), Gingerbread Murder Scene stout by Pontoon Brewing (Laura), and smart plugs (Pam).
