    Trump Thinks The Protests Will Help Him Win Like Nixon. That’s Unlikely.

    George Floyd’s memorial was held in Minneapolis today, and all four former officers involved in his death have now been charged with crimes. Plus, the New York Times’ Jamelle Bouie on why Trump's Nixon comparison doesn't work (and that controversial Tom Cotton op-ed).

    The date...June 4! The time...News O'Clock!

    George Floyd’s memorial was held in Minneapolis today, and all four former officers involved in his death have now been charged with crimes.

    The cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine has donated $100,000 to help bail out people arrested for protesting police brutality.

    K-pop stans are fighting for good, yet again.

    And we have the New York Times’ Jamelle Bouie with us to discuss why the protests on the streets don’t mean it’s 1968 again — and why the comparison doesn’t work the way Trump wants it to. (Oh, and also Tom Cotton's very controversial op-ed.)
