Later the quartet discuss whether or not Al Franken should resign following sexual harassment allegations, the Republican tax plan, Net Neutrality/FCC/Sinclair media, and Otieno watched Fox News so you won’t have to.
On this week’s episode of Secretly Timid, Cindy shares an embarrassing bedroom story and a cheater was caught red handed at one of Jon’s poker games. Hot Topics include a discussion on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, an apparent act of terrorism at a mosque in Minnesota, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s political aspirations, the American Psychoanalytical Association reassessment of the Goldwater Rule, and whether someone with genital herpes has a moral or legal responsibility to inform their casual sex partners if they are currently asymptomatic.

Addendum from Otieno : it was McCleskey vs Kemp, Sandra Day O’Connor not RBG, and the phrase was:
“The Court next states that its unwillingness to regard petitioner’s evidence as sufficient is based in part on the fear that recognition of McCleskey’s claim would open the door to widespread challenges to all aspects of criminal sentencing…Taken on its face, such a statement seems to suggest a fear of too much justice.”
On this week’s episode, Otieno, Ryan, Regina, and Jon discuss Wonder Woman, the Black Panther trailer, Jeff Sessions’s testimony, Trump being under investigation, the shooting in Virginia, and the verdicts in the Cosby trial and the officer who murdered Philando Castile.
