12/20 Samuel R. Bagenstos: How Trump Can Destroy Civil Rights Enforcement

December 20, 2016

On today’s show Samuel R. Bagenstos  (@sbagen) talks about his new article, “Civil Rights Déjà Vu, Only Worse.” The playbook Trump’s admin will use to attack government agencies once they’re in charge. The perspective from career civil servants. How presidencies outlast their time in office through the bureaucracy, and how long it takes to deprogram damage by previous administrations, like George W Bush’s. The GOP’s pathological and insidious obsession with non-existent voter fraud.

On the fun half – Rep. Bill Huizenga unwittingly demonstrates why GOP health insurance plans are nonsense. Alex Jones tries to keep his audiences eye on the ball with regard to Obama’s birth certificate. Scott Brown’s daughter on CNN for some reason, on how she was able to look beyond Trump’s racism. Trump concerned about Russian hacking… in 2014. Glenn Greenwald cautions against Russia-baiting on the Dem side.
