We’d Rather Pay Tribute to Elijah Cummings (MOMocrats Podcast)

1 min read

The nation lost a great advocate of democracy yesterday, with the passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings, who was chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, currently part of the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump. MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills believe that Cummings was the epitome of all that is good about our country, and they will talk about his legacy. 

But his passing came during a week when the country was rocked by presidential actions that – in the wake of what’s being uncovered in the congressional inquiry – were even more erratic than usual. Bloomberg journalist Sahil Kapur tweets out a list of all the bonkers news events that have occurred each day. Yesterday’s tweet looked like this:

  • Elijah Cummings dead
  • Sondland testifies
  • Mulvaney briefing
  • G7 at Trump Doral
  • Quid pro quo
  • Impeachment support
  • Pence-Erdogan
  • Turkey-Syria pause
  • Zuckerberg speech
  • Bernie v. Biden
  • Pelosi presser
  • Senate EPA rule vote
  • Rick Perry quitting

People, that’s just ONE DAY. And the pace is just accelerating as Trump’s malfeasance begins to come into the light and he tries desperately to change the subject.

The MOMocrats will do as they can to put all of this into context in this week’s political podcast from the progressive point of view – part of the DemCast family of podcasts.
