Host John Iadarola is joined by Brett Erlich, host of TYT’s Happy Half Hour, for the latest episode of The Damage Report.
Workers at Target, Amazon, Instacart and more organize a historic May Day strike to demand better health and safety conditions, as well as hazard pay. Joe Biden finally addresses the Tara Reade allegations on Morning Joe. Trump seemingly defends Biden, saying Tara Reade’s allegations “could be false.” Trump’s base could finally be turning on him. It’s time to take out the trash as John, Brett and you (yes, you!) pick the Garbage People of the Week!

"Having apparently learned nothing about the novel coronavirus since February—when he predicted the contagion would disappear "like a miracle" by April—President Donald Trump insisted during a roundtable with corporate executives Wednesday that Covid-19 will soon "be gone" even in the absence of a vaccine, a view that is not shared by public health professionals.
"It’s gonna go, it’s gonna leave, it’s gonna be gone, it’s gonna be eradicated," Trump said when asked to explain how the virus will simply disappear without a vaccine. "It might take longer, it might be in smaller sections. It won’t be what we had."
"If you have a flare-up in a certain area, if you have a, I call them burning embers, boom. We put it out," Trump continued. "We know how to put it out now. But we put it out."
In response to Trump’s remarks, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) tweeted that the president’s "magical thinking and downplaying of the virus has led to over 61,000 American deaths.""
