Jamie thanks his patrons for joining his Patreon relaunch, Patreon question about book and music recommendations, Donald Trump apparently just found out who Frederick Douglass is, Sean Spicer and Trump spent a lot of time calling it a Muslim ban before insisting it's not a Muslim ban, Trump manages to threaten Mexico, Iran, and Australia in a single day, and then threaten UC Berkeley after protests shut down speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. Funny how it's only violence if antifas damage property—and not if a fascist shoots a protester
