In Dallas, Texas last week, 18 year-old high school valedictorian Paxton Smith decided at the last minute to throw away her school-approved graduation speech to address a new Texas law signed Republican Governor Greg Abbott that would make all abortions illegal as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. Video of her 3-minute speech has gone viral and caused a rumble - so she joins Rumble with Michael Moore to explain how she summoned the courage to deliver that speech, how positive the reaction has been, whether she defines herself as "politically active, and the best advice she's received since going viral.
Finally, Michael Moore is confused as to why Joe Manchin was sitting behind the legendary Joan Baez at the Kennedy Center Honors on Sunday night singing along to "We Shall Overcome" to honor her when it is Joe Manchin's intransigence, selfishness and greed that needs to be overcome. Weirdest TV moment of the year.
