Episode 1894: Caitlin Thompson On The US Election, Trumpism’s Next Move, And Joe Biden
It’s been an exhausting week to be an American, but we speak to one of our favourites Caitlin Thompson, founder of Racquet Magazine, who, long before she ever talked to us about tennis, was covering politics in the US. How does she feel about the election result?
Shep fact-checks President Trump’s remarks:
-No evidence that pollsters knowingly got polls wrong to create voter suppression
-No red wave in the election
-No evidence of election interference
-Polls may have been wrong, but they weren’t fake#Election2020 https://t.co/2ydxgqlxGJ pic.twitter.com/VqncLjegnS
