The group that wouldn't let things go are the Republicans. in the past, they kept trying to prosecute Hillary Clinton on Benghazi although they couldn't find anything. The Republicans are the ones that go off the deep end to try to prove something that they feel is true that end up not being true. If Trump is not a manchurian president then I'd let it go. Id just be ready to vote in the next election to get him out of office. But, there are just too many events that has happened in the trump admin to ignore or just brush off as coincidental or trump incompetence or him being a blithering idiot. The stuff that Trump does is just to fishy to not have suspicions. You seem to want to give him the benefit of doubt. But if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, chances are it's a duck. I'd be surprised, shocked, and astounded if he was proved to not have some crooked ties with Russia considering all these meetings he's had with Putin alone.

very anxiety-inducing, listening to you rush your guest. yeah, his pace is less driven than many speakers on the pod, but not nearly as aggravating as the host's leaning on him.

this is the only spot in the universe where I can say that I love "tRUmp" and mean it. The Tweets are consistently a highlight in each episode. Brilliant voicings.

great show. Dr. Arnson's breadth of knowledge and professional integrity were impressive. she should be included in all federal discussions re Central American policy. she has both heart and mind on the task.

i wish SOMEONE, anyone, would go in depth on the only aspect of adding more border wall that is actually relevant: no land, no wall. the federal government does not own the land on which the remaining fence/wall would be built. almost all current barriers went up some years ago, on land in az and nm that were already federally owned. the remaining open borderlands are almost all in texas, where an epic battle has been being waged for years by hundreds of individual americans trying to save their generational lands and homes from condemnation by the feds through eminent domain. they have been lied to, cheated, and steam-rolled over by homeland security and other federal agents. a very relevant sidenote of this issue is trump's history with eminent domain in nyc, where he very famously used the courts to take land from a lot of individuals, in order to get land for his buildings- his historical quotes on eminent domain are quite chilling in the current context. another small but fascinating side note is how new mexico recently put a mile of border wall up for auction, in protest of the federal government having summarily and illegally built wall on land owned by the new mexico state land trust- the details of this story alone are worth notice by those who want to get into the ACTUAL issues surrounding this wall. the land under the wall needs media coverage, to dispell the issue's vast oversimplification, expose the irrelevancy of the current discourse, and to put the dilemma of these borderland americans to the forefront- if the federal government was making this enormous and agressive land-grab anywhere else in america, it would be big news.

when all is said and done and the day is over we're all on the same team so you should rally behind the head coach instead of scrutinizing and putting him under a microscope and picking at everything instead you should encourage and try to uplift a fellow American these are seriously some sad days when people use platforms to put down other people it's the wrong thing you should build people up not beat them down

Have you all ever seen Madame Secretary? I know she’s not top dog but I think she’s such a believable, remarkable political character. And to see her struggle with being a woman in the white house and around the world, dealing with world leaders (who are almost always men) who talk down to her, don’t take her seriously and have even assaulted her is so interesting and it makes you realize how important that job is and how having hot headed idiots fill that position and handle those relationships recklessly is so so dangerous.
