Allison and Jamie have their annual fight about Love Actually, Ohio's terrifying anti-abortion bill, a new nightmare scenario: Republicans gut Casey instead of Roe V. Wade, the CIA leak mess, Trump's picks: secretary of state Rex Tillerson is the chief executive of Exxon Mobil and buddy of Putin, Labor pick Andrew Puzder is a critic of the minimum wage increases and an alleged domestic abuser (he'll be the third alleged domestic abuser in the Trump cabinet so far), EPA pick Scott Pruitt is a climate change denier, and a key economic post goes to yet another Goldman Sachs guy, Gary Cohn. Also, Trump will be Troll-in-chief, Trump supports the DAPL construction (which will financially benefit him), GOP introduces plan to massively cut Social Security, Secret Service is being advertised as hot "new amenity" at Trump Tower, Trump is staffing his cabinet with TPP supporters, Senate's response to Trump-inspired anti-semitism is to target students who criticize Israel, Trump cuts ties with Mike Flynn Jr. after he promotes Pizzagate conspiracy on Twitter, and Trump's lies about voter fraud are already leading to new GOP voter suppression efforts
