Irishman Abroad’s US Correspondent Marion McKeone checks in with Jarlath after a week of hacking and spiralling pandemic numbers. Could we reach a tipping point?

Marion details the terrifying realities of the accounts of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West and Elon Musk being hacked. Marion also discusses the "belligerent swagger" that is evident in the southern states regarding the wearing of face masks and how Trump's lack of empathy with struggle is seriously affecting the American economy during the pandemic.

Jarlath quizzes Marion on why she sees a brutal dog fight of an election ahead, the growing danger that any election result will be contested, the fallout of the release of Mary Trump's book and the possibility of the beloved Doctor Fauci being fired.
