The Dom Show Counter To #ImTheWhistleBlower? #ImTheSilentMajority

Today, Dom started off the show by talking about a new hashtag trending on Twitter, #ImTheWhistleBlower. Similarly to the public donning Guy Fawkes masks in V for Vendetta, progressives on Twitter are all using the hashtag to express their unity in the protection of the whistleblower who set off the Trump impeachment inquiry. Dom wonders what the hashtag should be for Trump fans, and tries to get #ImTheSilentMajority trending after a caller recommended he try it. Also, Hillary Clinton made another appearance last night, this time on Colbert’s show, and Steve Bannon believes that she will be entering a bid for a 2020 campaign. Also, Donny Deutsch says that Trump, if removed from office, will call on his followers to start a civil war, and Dom proposes his side topic, which is ‘what is the best foreign phrase or word’ in honor of the recent overuse of ‘quid pro quo.’

What Should Be The Punishment For Hate Crime Hoaxes?

Dom also asked listeners what they think the punishment should be for those who make up a hate crime. This coming after another hoax surfaced involving a student at a Virginia school who said that white boys held her down and cut off her dreadlocks after calling them ‘nappy’. Today, it was revealed that the story was made up. Dom suggests an expulsion for this student and Dan disagrees, but it gives cause for the larger question at hand… how should we deal with people, particularly adults, who create hate crime hoaxes? Also, Dom discusses a story in the Washington Post in which a celebrity chef called out the ethnic aisles at supermarkets as racist.

How Do Republicans In Philadelphia’s Suburbs Plan On Combating The Rise of Dem. Politician Popularity?

Finally, Dom talks about local Republican committees and yearns for them to come up with a plan to win over suburban congressional seats. It seems as though Mary Gay Scanlon, Madeleine Dean, and Chrissy Houlahan are all over the news recently, becoming the ‘faces of the Trump impeachment.’ Dom feels as though Republicans in Delaware, Chester, and Montgomery counties have given up in the fight for what should be swing counties.
