Watch the full episode here.

Lee Camp is a stand-up comedian and political satirist. He is the host of Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp on RT America. He created the Common Censored podcast along with Eleanor Goldfield which focuses on grassroots activism issues. Camp is the author of the new book Bullet Points & Punch Lines.
