2/6 Michael Kinnucan on Why Republicans Are Impressive

February 6, 2017

Michael Kinnucan (@MichaelKinnucan) joins us to discuss his new article Why Republicans Are Impressive.

How the GOP war on medicaid illuminates how they go about achieving their agenda as opposed to democrats. How plutocrat money floats a cohort of insane republican lawmakers. How Democrats lost their way after the GOP majorities of the 80s and turned into a moderate corporate party of the status quo.

On the fun half – Trump responds to a Morning Joe segment on Twitter again, SNL goes in hard on Bannon, Spicer, and Trump, Trump says the US isn’t as innocent as Putin, GOP slows its role on Obamacare, Tom McClintock gets chased out of a town hall, and Bernie calls Trump a fraud.
