Are they Cosplaying?

Sam, Becky, and Luke broadcast LIVE, just after returning from a Patriot Prayer rally in downtown Tacoma. They delve into WA State legislator Matt Shea’s “Biblical War” manifesto, and his scary brand of evangelism and separatist “liberty.” Irish blasphemy, Pence, and Messianic Jews get mentioned too.
