Adam and Drew open the show with Ami Horowitz in studio making his ADS debut, Adam was turned onto his work from listening to Dennis Prager’s show.
Adam says Ami’s work echoes what a lot of us sane, non-partisan people think.
Adam is now talking about the “voter suppression” and the notion of a race of people being unable to get identification, he says it’s the ultimate form of racism.
Drew brings up Obama’s farewell speech, Ami is weighing in and explains what making it easier to vote actually means.
He explains how they could mean a variety of things with the claims of wanting to make voting easier, Adam says it’s been nonstop election talk for a year, if you wanted to vote, you know how to vote.
Adam talks about his history of voting and not voting, he chooses when he wants to participate.
Ami and Drew make a point about class over race, identification is not a bridge to far for black people, nor any race living in America.
Drew asks Ami about his video asking white liberals about voter suppression and identification among black people, Adam brings up the ultimate racism, hubris and narcissism white liberals express regarding the notion that other people are incapable of simple tasks.
They play the clip from Ami’s video.
Adam comments on the ample bosom on the black woman who closes out the video, Ami says it’s sweet over racist, it’s a form of ignorance and it’s good natured.
Adam says it’s beyond racism and he cites his old-school counselor Mr. Tomey who told him which classes were and weren’t for him, treating him like he was lesser than his peers.
Adam jumps in and makes a point about the perceived bias of the videos and Ami’s work, Adam has Ami tell them about the actual stats of the people documented.
Ami says he only shares videos with super majority opinion differences he doesn’t cheat it nor share the stuff that is too close to make a video for.
Ami says only one person recognized him and skewed the polling in the videos.
Ami is telling them about his attempt to support the opposing candidate at each of the political conventions, he shares how kind the conservatives supporting Trump were toward him vs, the democrats who spit on him for supporting Trump.
Adam shares his theory about hippies being covertly angry and aggressive, Drew says it’s a disavowal of their own aggression and Adam uses Rosie O’Donnell to make a point about how she hid her true nature from her daytime TV audience.
Adam is explaining why they program TV that way, Rosie had to be fake to be successful, he cites his friend who worked on her staff and he cites Ellen who didn’t dance at the weeding they both attended.
Adam is making a point about portrayal vs. reality and he cites Dennis Prager as a counter example and goes back to the hippies putting flowers in the barrel of guns.
Ami references Howard Stern along with Dr. Drew and they say “peace and love” and then Drew mentions Joey Boots.
Adam is talking about the professor who demanded some “muscle” the infamous story where Melissa Click was fired, after her hidden rage bubbled over on camera.

Adam says fuck that horrible message and Drew tries to look for the most positive element of the speech, regarding interdependency among humans in society.
