Laetitia Avia, a former French member of Parliament and senior fellow focusing on technology and democracy policy at the Center for American Progress, joins Daniella to discuss the danger that Elon Musk’s Twitter poses to democracy around the world; the need for better social media regulation; and what U.S. policymakers can learn from Europe. Daniella also talks about the messy vote for the speaker of the House and the lack of party accountability for radical new MAGA lawmakers such as Rep. George Santos (R-NY).
