In this week’s quarantine episode of our Useful Idiots podcast, hosts Matt Taibbi and Katie Halper are joined by Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept, who has yet again found himself in the middle of some media controversies.
For Democrats suck, Katie breaks down the recent viral Joe Biden clip, in which Biden plays “Despacito” from his phone at a rally during Hispanic Heritage Month. “That’s what we call Hispandering,” says Katie, who translates the sensual lyrics of the song into English for our listeners.
Katie also gets fired up about a recent proposition on MSNBC that Biden’s association with Bernie may be hurting him with Cuban-American voters in Florida. “I’m just so tired of people using the Cuban-American demographic as interchangeable with Latino,” says Katie.
