Something rare happened in this bonus episode of The new abnormal podcast. Hosts Andy Levy and Molly Jong-Fast listened to an audio clip of Donald Trump shitting Mitch McConnell’s popularity, and they kind of agreed with him.
The clip in question was a recording of Trump’s speech at a May 6 rally in Pennsylvania. He tells the crowd that Mitch McConnell is “an old, broken crow” — “crow” is another word. Andy thinks “Shit”. He also says McConnell is “the least popular politician in the country.”

“Donald Trump: wrong about everything else, right about Mitch McConnell,” says Andy.
Molly pushes back. “I’ll say Mitch McConnell got him three Supreme Court justices and probably kept him in power, right? How, prevented it from being removed. I think he served Donald Trump to serve his own interests. I have no love for Mitch McConnell, but Donald Trump repays him by attacking him,” she says.
But Andy remains steadfast: “He’s right about McConnell. But of course for the wrong reasons.”
The two also address Congresswoman Lauren Boebert’s promotion of Dinesh D’Souza’s vote-fraud conspiracy film 2000 Mules and the glaring problem with it.
“No one knows who the mules are,” says Molly.
“We’ll have to find out,” jokes Andy.
Plus! Model and fashion activist Karen Elson tells Molly about her work unionizing models in the fashion industry and the dangers they face at work.
“The illusion that ‘beautiful women’ have problems is very difficult for people to understand. And to think that there are maybe egregious things, things that happen in our workplace, like worst end of the spectrum, sexual harassment, abuse, a tremendous lack of financial transparency that exists between our agents and no pay, for Example, immigration violations, yadda yadda, it’s a lot to unpack,” she says.
Elson explains how model rights work in practice and explains the Fashion Workers Act, a law in New York that could change the game for her.
