What’s happening to protesters in Portland?

On today's happy hour episode, we're talking about a headline that sounds like it's coming from a different place and a different time.

On today’s happy hour episode, “This Is Uncomfortable” host Reema Khrais is on to talk about what’s happening in Portland, Oregon, this week. Federal law enforcement officers are reportedly taking protesters off the street, placing them under arrest for reasons unknown and driving away with them in unmarked vans. It sounds like a headline from a different place and a different time, but it’s happening in an American city right now. Later, we’ll lighten things up by talking about a socially distanced knighting and … ants.

Here’s a list of everything we’re talking about today:
