Today, we're joined by Molly Jong-Fast, host of The New Abnormal podcast and Editor at Large at The Daily Beast. We start with her story on Gabby Petito which shook up the Internet this week, as she examined the coverage, the investigation, and the popularity of the case. Then, Joe and Alex ask Molly about the inter-party fight between Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, which has the potential to spill into the primaries and maybe even provoke a nasty fight in the Senate. How can the GOP manage to win general elections when they have to move to the extreme right to win a primary? Finally, the discussion shifts to Texas, where Beto O'Rourke has reportedly decided to challenge Gov. Greg Abbott in the 2022 election for Governor. Could he actually unseat the Governor? Is Texas -- for real this time -- a place where Democrats could make some gains? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
