*On Tuesday, October 13, the hosts welcome Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has a lot to say about the upcoming election.

She shares why she believes it’s so important to have female voices in politics and especially why we need to hold our government leaders accountable for promises made to communities of color. (She also has a very strong opinion about whether there should be another debate between former Vice President Biden and President Trump!)

Later, the ladies discuss whether vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris is covered differently than other politicians in the press because of her race.

Shaquille O’Neal revealed he will be voting in this election for the very first time! Should he be shamed, or will he open the doors for more Black men to vote?

And the hosts speak to business owner Stella Williams who was body-shamed and became a viral meme. She reveals how she handled it, turned it around and made it into something positive.

Sen Warren: We Need To Hold Our Government Accountable For Their Promises To Communities Of Color

Loni Love: Politicians are making a lot of promises to the Black community, and then they often don’t follow through when they take office. How will Biden break that cycle?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: Hold us accountable. All of us! Biden, Harris, but your Senators and your Reps as well. So here’s how I see this: We’re really in this right now, we’re going to get all of the vote turned out between now and November 3rd. Then on November 4th – I hope – we’re going to be out there celebrating. But then on November 5th, we’re going to be right back in this fight. We’re going to be back in this fight to hold everyone we elected accountable. And let me just remind you what that means. It means not just some kind of bland race-neutral, “Oh, I’m going to advance these policies and somehow it’s going to help the Black community, it’s going to help others who’ve been left behind and discriminated against.” No. We’re going to actually take a look at race and respond directly. So for example, childcare. One of the reasons we need to put childcare as a top priority is most child caregivers – paid child caregivers – are women and women of color, and they are so badly underpaid. So part of our childcare system has to be, as we invest and build this system – it’s about raising the wages of childcare workers and that’s going to be a big boost to Black women and to Latinas across this country. Another quick one – student loan debt. We cancel out a big chunk of student loan debt – you know who that specifically is going to help? It’s going to help African American students and Latino students who borrow more money to go to school, borrow more money while they’re in school and have a harder time paying it off when they get out. It’s time to look at how every one of our policies is affected by race, and to say we need to think in terms of, not just some kind of general how we make things better but specifically – how we undo the impact of generation after generation of racism and what it has done to this country. And that’s only going to happen if all of us continue to fight to hold our government accountable. We can do this.

Then Academy Award-winning director John Ridley visits to talk about his five-issue miniseries, The Other History of the DC Universe. He shares his views on actress Janet Hubert’s recent comments during The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reunion about being called “difficult” and how that term affects a Black woman’s career in Hollywood. He also reveals which medium – films, books, plays or comics – is the most difficult to write and why!

And singer-songwriter Queen Naija drops in to chat about her debut album, misunderstood. And it turns out she is a huge fan of Adrienne’s husband, Israel Houghton!

Jeannie Explains How She Was Prioritizing Work Over Her Health

Jeannie Mai: Man, we already know how precious health is, but I am a workaholic and I do prioritize my work more than my health. And in this situation, I absolutely kind of just thought taking a steroid shot or just taking Theraflu or Dayquil would help cover it, because – I was in a competition, yo, and I was not going to let down. I really took that too seriously, more than my health, and then I – God taught me a lesson. So, um – it was a… the part that… Getting sick wasn’t the upsetting part, it was actually just being depressed because I let myself get to this, and for the last few weeks, I gotta be honest, I was pretty upset at myself, because everything ended. I stopped shooting my favorite talk show every day, and I had to step out of a competition, which I feel like I was doing good, and I could have staying in the running…

Adrienne Houghton: You were gonna win!

Jeannie: So, I’ve, I’ve just… thank you, Adrienne. I believe I could have too. But I didn’t give up!

Adrienne: I believe you were gonna win!

Jeannie: I really – I really appreciate that. I, I really learned a lesson. Being in a dark place where you actually just feel like you have no… you’re helpless – it’s the worst feeling ever. Like, you did it to yourself. And so, I take full responsibility.

Trump’s Misspelled Tweets are Coded Messages? Q’Anon is Even More Deranged Than You Thought (Watch)

*You’ve heard that the Trump supporters within the conspiracy movement Q’Anon believe that Democrats are running a pedophile ring and eating babies to extract a life-extending chemical from their blood. And that these child eaters/molesters include Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, George Soros, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey.

But did you know these folks also believe that Donald Trump’s misspelled tweets – like “covfefe” and “the smocking gun” – are secret, coded messages for Q-Anon members? And that Trump was secretly recruited by top military generals to run for president in 2016 in order to break up this criminal cabal of Dems, end their control of politics and the media, and bring its members to justice?

Did you know that two Q’Anon believers were just elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, representing areas in Colorado and Georgia?

On “The Daily Show” Monday night, Trevor Noah broke down Q’Anon’s origins, their infiltration into mainstream politics and just how removed from reality its members really are

*Netflix has yanked Dave Chappelle’s comedy sketch series “Chappelle’s Show” from its platform.

The series originally aired on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006. The comedian famously walked away from the show in 2005 due to creative differences.

Chappelle revealed in a lengthy Instagram video Tuesday that he requested for the series to be removed because he “never got paid” by ViacomCBS after he quit. 

“If you are (expletive) streaming that show, you are fencing stolen goods,” Chappelle said in the 18-minute video titled, “Unforgiven.” “They stole that (show) from me, they just took it.”

Watch him tell it via the Instagram video below.

“I found out these people were streaming my work and never had to ask me or they never had to tell me,” he continued. “Perfectly legal because I signed the contract, but is that right? I didn’t think so.”

Chappelle signed a deal with Netflix in 2016 for five stand-up specials that have been released on the platform, including “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity,” “Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin” and “Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones.”

“(Netflix) agreed that they would take it off their platform just so I could feel better,” Chapelle said. “That’s why I (expletive) with Netflix because they pay me my money, they do what they say they are going to do and they went above and beyond what you could expect from a businessman.”
