About this Episode

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky joins the show to explain why he's voting for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. We also discuss the growing threat of "court-packing," and what we can expect from a conservative-majority Supreme Court.

Then we tackle the Democratic push to add Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. as states, and what it means for the balance of the Senate. We also discuss the 2020 election and how ending the War in Afghanistan and criminal justice reform factor into Senator Paul's support for President Trump. Plus, I ask the senator whether there are any areas, such as trade or immigration, where Biden might actually be better than Trump from the liberty perspective.

We round out the conversation with Paul's food take on why mayo is "disgusting" and how he thinks mayo lovers force their tastes on the rest of us.
