First up, Donald Trump has been convicted of being a sexual abuser and raping a woman. Is he going to jail, NO...he just has to pay a bunch of money to E. Jean Carroll who he claims he never met. But this brings up a bigger issue for our host Mark. All the stories seem to emulate from the republican/GOP/Conservative playbooks and never/rarely from the democratic people and stance. What is it about Republicans and these people that warrant their need to rape or even be sexual abusers of people. Plus if they aren't holding trump accountable for this outside of paying money, then they are unwilling to hold this man to the stones.
Next up George Santos and more shootings in the republican stronghold that is NRA loving Texas. Greg Abbott is doing nothing to protect his state. People are dying weekly and this time a child was killed to. And Santos is now arrested and charged with 13 counts!!! Fraud and all kinds of fun for George...but once again, these are the biggest stories in the country and they all deal with republicans being horrible.
Finally we reached the next round of the TOPC! We are working on Best Teen Movies and this is the Drama Division of the tournament. Movies where emotional (in most cases) damage or physical damage happens to the chracters, but still teen based. And this one goes off the rails a little when there are hearing issues for two of the three men. Find out who moves on in this battle of juggernauts and academy award nominated films!
