The President Was Booed; Deadspin Staff Resigns; Obama And Cancel Culture

Nov 4, 2019

President Trump changed his primary address from New York to Florida.  He says he'd been treated badly by political leaders.

He was also booed twice last week, first at Game Five of the World Series between the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros, this past Saturday at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden. It does hightlight how infrequently the president ventures beyond the safety of the controlled settings of his rallies. 

Also this hour: journalists at Deadspin submitted their resignations en masse last week in a revolt against the corporate mandate to "stick to sports."

Lastly, President Obama objected to the prevalence of call-out culture last week during an interview about youth activism. He's being called out for his comments.
