Ben Randle is here to help us wade through the political forecast of election 2020 and what we can do! But first, a new AUTHORIZED Whitney biopic by her estate has just been green-lit, no more Lifetime originals on to the big leagues, but will this be truthful or fall short, like Bohemian Rhapsody and vilify her hidden queerness. We might be in quarantine and lockdown but when it comes to Patti LuPone the library is still open as she is out her reading folks, spilling the tea, and throwing the shade in only the way that Patti LuPone can do, on Watch What Happens Live. Speaking of the state of TV… we need to talk about Wendy Williams. What is going on? Like more than usual. Is this a cry for help on live TV? While some celebrities have no filter, are some too filtered, and do some need to be filtered? Jeff Goldblum may have stepped in it, on an episode of drag race that has some raising the islamaphobia bells, or was he just asking a question about the art of drag? In the main event Ben is going to walk us through the upcoming election painting it as our generations Johnson v. Goldwater moment, how Biden may not be as bad as progressives think, and the key Senate races that are going to need our help.
