Elon Musk, the crypto crash, 'Ultra MAGA' and more — Michael E. Hayden (5/16/22)
Six big things that happened while the show was on break.
Michael E. Hayden is a senior investigative reporter at the Southern Poverty Law Center and good friend of the podcast. Mike joins SH!TPOST this week to chat about all the stories the show missed while it was on break.
In this episode, Mike and Jared discuss Elon Musk bidding for Twitter, the far-right laundering fascist aesthetics via “Ultra MAGA”, a right-wing YouTube star who was caught on tape spewing racist and antisemitic language, cryptocurrency markets taking a tumble, white nationalist movement figures clashing over cum stains, and Rep. Madison Cawthorn getting the brunt of a nasty political smear campaign.
