Dems Race To Move The Goalposts

Today, Dom spent the first hour of show discussing the Democratic scramble to come up with new talking points and to push the goalposts. Nancy Pelosi, speaking to reporters, insisted that even if Trump is acquitted, he won't be acquitted because it's not a real trial. Also, Alisyn Camerota offered up a soccer shootout as the way to settle a potential tie on the senate floor. Dom also asks listeners what meme they'll be using if and when Trump is not removed from office, and asks whether or not listeners are planning to stay up late to catch the final vote.

Dom, Dan and Joe theorize the reasons behind the shift away from greeting cards, and listeners call in with their thoughts as well. Also, Dom runs through the Superbowl prop bets and finds out that his new calendar is finally here.
