ITT Sound Off: The Power of Women

Maria is joined by guest co-host Jamilah King, a reporter and podcast host at Mother Jones. They recap the coronavirus crisis and talk about President Trump sending federal agents to cities across the country. They also debrief the violent shooting targeting New Jersey Judge Esther Salas and her family, as well as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s powerful speech in response to Representative Ted Yoho's abusive language. ITT Staff Picks:   - "This is not mere disregard for the rule of law — this is outright disdain," writes Laurence Tribe, a professor of constitutional law at Harvard Law School in this piece for WBUR about Trump's use of paramilitary force in American cities. - Joshua Benton writes for The Atlantic about Roy Den Hollander, the man who attacked Latina Judge Esther Salas and her family. He explains how Hollander's writings revealed "deeply misogynistic beliefs" and a support for Trump. - In this op-ed Lucy Diavolo, politics editor for Teen Vogue, writes, "So I’m proud to be a f*cking b*tch, even if the words sting, because I know it means the people who built the walls are afraid of how close we’re coming to knocking them down."
