There is also the irony that Nixon opened the door to China and Trump has started a Trade war there.

Wow really dont appreciate the clear bias against Bernie particularly from Mara... Bernie is fine, the surgery is standard for people his age if you researched at all you would know the recovery time is only days.. He will be at the next debate. I listen to you guys for my corporate bias media because you are generally the least bad of the MSM but keep trashing Bernie subtly or otherwise and I will stop listening.

why the hell did I get a notification for this?? just a heads up I'm pretty down the middle on politics, don't listen to this for any actual information. this episode contains no facts, no evidence, and no point. much like the wasted tax dollars on the actual "investigations"

Marianne should have been on that stage. The status quo was the only thing represented in the 3rd debate. No depth.

Wow, I thought you guys weren't biased. Not a single mention of how Gabbard got shut out of the debate (probably because she put the smack down on Harris), and all this talk about Warren when Sanders consistency polls higher than her. Your corporate funding is showing.
