We dig further into Trump’s selections for his crony cabinet including Rep. Tom Price for HHS, and Vincent Viola for Army Secretary, both of whom have massive financial conflicts. Then, Alexis talks with Chase Strangio, staff attorney at the ACLU, about the ongoing disaster that is North Carolina’s anti-trans law HB2; Gavin Grimm’s pending Supreme Court case and its implications for LGBTQ rights; and an update on Chelsea Manning. And we also talk briefly about how sad we both are over the death of Carrie Fisher.
