John McCain, women in combat arms, and a Twitter troll – Ep 20
Without even trying, Danny and I spent the episode discussing numerous topics where others have gone to great lengths to mask the truth. Whether rumors of John McCain’s military prowess, discussing an anonymous op-ed from within the White House, or analyzing a set of boilerplate articles on women in combat arms, it’s all about making something seem different when all the while, they were lying their asses off. The sad truth is that these deceptions get passed around by ordinary Americans without question. For your listening pleasure, here’s some illumination.
