Donald Trump loves him some beauty pageants. But he probably wasn’t so hot on this year’s Miss Texas who called him out during the Miss America competition for his horrid response to the neo-Nazi violence against protesters. This week on Intercepted, we talk Trump, Confederate monuments, and racism with activist and commentator Shaun King. He also lays out his argument for boycotting the NFL in response to the blacklisting of Colin Kaepernick after his very public protests on and off the field. We also get analysis from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden on the massive data breach at the credit reporting agency Equifax, as well as his current assessment of the evidence of Russian interference in the U.S. election. And we talk about Chicago housing projects and hear music from alt-rap artist Open Mike Eagle.
