On this week's episode of Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie talk about an unusual and surprising case where the Trump Administration has filed a brief in support of fair housing advocates who have sued Facebook for its part in enabling discriminatory advertising. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes. 

The two start the discussion by briefly explaining Facebook's data collection and advertising practices and the way that they allegedly fun afoul of strict provisions preventing discriminatory housing advertisements. They then discuss the Trump Administration's surprising recent filing that offers full-throated support to the housing advocates' claims of discrimination. That leads to two questions: is the Trump Administration right, and why are they doing this? Ultimately, the two both give credit where it's due.
