We vent about Iran, the catastrophic implication of the Trump administration's actions, and the effects on the world in general and US politics specifically. SPEAKING OF, we're then joined by Bernie Sanders' national press secretary Briahna Joy Gray to discuss the state of the Sanders campaign and what YOU can do to help out TODAY.

So, listen up screwheads, this is what you gotta do:

Bernie volunteer options, in order of importance:
1. If you’re in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, or South Carolina:
- find an event near you: events.BernieSanders.com
- Download BERN and add everyone you know and ask them to support Bernie: BernieSanders.app.link 

2. If you’re not in one of those first four early states, the most important thing you can do is get to one of those first four early states, especially IA and NH. Take the “Bernie Journey” and travel there to knock on doors: BernieSanders.com/BernieJourney 

3. If you can’t get there in person, make calls to early states. We have a huge goal of 5 million calls before Iowa. You can do it on your own from home, there’s a chatbox if you need help, and there’s a community on Slack of other callers to talk to. BernieSanders.com/call

4. If you don’t like making calls, join our texting team. It’s like tweeting but you’re convincing actual voters and is very easy. BernieSanders.com/text

5. If you live in a state that votes on Super Tuesday (AL, AR, AS, CA, CO, MA, ME, MN, NC, OK, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT):
- find an event near you: events.BernieSanders.com 
- And make sure you download BERN to organize your friends and family members for Bernie: BernieSanders.app.link

Rob Delaney stops by to talk healthcare, Bill O'Reilly, sniveling Democrats, and Gorilla Mindset. Then Matt tells us about the Juicero and Felix and Brendan reveal a new single by P.J. Dade, "U Give Me 3nergy."

Message from P.J. Dade below:

I am an evangelical Christian, the owner of a secondhand boat store, and yes, that was me in the news report about “bathroom encounters.”

I sell rudders and motorboards during the day, but I have passions outside of work. Obviously, God is number one. But passion number two is my awesome wife Klyeelissa and my kick butt little guy Mason Jesse James Treibart (the best 4 year old in the world ;) ), Passion the third is, you guessed it, Evangelical EDM.

Yes, Evangelical EDM is the thirteenth largest growing music genre in the entire world, but I'm not in it for money. My entire life, I've been searching for a way to tell people how my soul felt. I tried to find it in the bottle, in the pipe, and yup, through the bathroom stall. But every time I thought I was breaking through, I was just putting barriers between my spirit and the world. With Evangelical EDM, I know that I'm finally speaking the true voice God gave me.

So I decided to send the boys in "The Trap" my newest song, "You Give Me Energy." I could try explaining my life, my journey, my triumphs, and my pain to get these guys to understand who they're mocking when they mock evangelicals, but they wouldn't understand it. the universal language of music is how neighbors can see eye to eye, though. It's been like that since the Book of Genesis, and it's like that now.

So without further ado, I hope you can begin to start to think about considering who I really am, and who you could be.

Blessing throughout you, your family, and the world.

"You Give Me Energy" lyrics

[intro]
This song is dedicated
To a group of people I fail every day
But they're special enough to forgive me
I'm talking about my family and the Lord Jesus Christ
Let's go

Every day is just another chance
You can do evil as long as you come right back
Forgiveness is how the angels dance
It doesn't matter if you were born here or in Iraq

You are the best of me
You give me Energy
Once I was lost at sea
You give me energy

He's in our hearts before the coffee's in our cups
God is our breath every time we hiccup
He is the fistul of uppers when we crash
He will pump your stomach if you swallow sin for cash

You are the best of me
You give me energy
You wipe the sweat from me
You give me energy

Slouched in a stall, my luck's run out
I refuse to die, refuse to doubt
He is with me all around
I pick myself up off the ground
‘Cause even if you relapse in the hole
Your Wife understands it’s one step towards your goal

You are the best of me
You give me energy
The Holy Ghost nests in me
You give me energy

[outro]
I'm sorry for everything that I have done
That I will do, and haven’t done
And you're welcome for our son

The show receives another celebrity call as a prominent broadcaster sets the record straight about the globalist demon media.

The lads then discuss Mike Pence’s Rules For Dating Mother, the sad sacks at the DNC, why American health care sucks (more on that next week) and a magical reading series from National Review’s Jay Nerdlinger about his field trip to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. He did not like it.

Special thanks to Tim Heidecker

The second half was recorded the next day and it’s our second official reading of Ben Shapiro’s catshit novel “True Allegiance.” Ultimately everything turned out alright.
