It is into an under construction Twilight Lounge that the boys descend this week, willfully ignoring the chaos that surrounds them (for the most part, until the smoke detector goes off). After a two-week layoff, Goldbrener has returned from his Sequoia Park poker outing to muse on potential guest hosts during Rosen’s upcoming summer-long European trip. Spoiler alert: there will be no guest hosts.
Rosen then explains why nobody in college likes the sober guy with the guitar before segueing into Jewish news, including: problem with Jewish foreskin inspectors, Impossible Burgers(TM) and AOC’s latest headline-stealing stunt. From here things, as they do, get serious, as the boys try to solve the border crisis before backpedaling and asking:
This week, Rosen and Goldbrener tackle the college admissions scandal and Bay Area media’s gleeful coverage of involved local families and somehow end up blaming Napster for the rise of youthful socialists in the U.S. Having established this, they move onto things Goldbrener finds either distasteful or unimpressive: Exxon, the Black Hat Guys, Rosen’s claim that his mother’s family is Ukrainian and Jexodus. As a matter of fact:
Is Jexodus good for the Jews?
Given the events of the past few weeks, Rosen can’t blame Jews who are considering leaving and increasingly “Corbynistic” Democratic Party. Even so, there’s got to be a better option than being led into the arms of Donald Trump and despite Goldbrener’s impassioned defense of disaffected American youth, Rosen’s not convinced they’re the answer either.
