This week, all eyes have been on a very large and very slow-moving hurricane that decimated the Bahamas before landing on the coast of the Carolinas.

And our president has been devoting all his time to justifying a tweet that mistakenly put the path of the hurricane over Alabama – even going so far as doctoring an official Weather Service map with a Sharpie to “prove” that he had not made an error.

MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills admit that the ensuing Sharpie memes on Twitter were a hilarious distraction from all the horror of a week that included yet another mass shooting, corruption in plain view, and batshit crazy politics in the UK over Brexit. They discuss that and more in this week’s podcast from a progressive point of view.
