5/25 Mike Hanna: Trump’s Trip to Saudi Arabia & a New Middle-East Peace Plan

May 24, 2017

Mike Hanna, (@mjahanna) freelance presenter and former bureau chief for CNN in Jerusalem. What is unprecedented about Trump’s decision to make his first trip abroad to “the world’s great religions.” What’s happening inside Iran as the crucial context for middle-eastern prospects for peace. Trump’s obvious natural affinity for authoritarian leaders.

On the fun half – John Podhoretz not sure if Michael Brooks is as bad as the holocaust, Hannity continues to melt down over the Seth Rich story, Trump talks cavalierly about nuclear war, the Trump admin dances with swords, a CIA agent says Trey Gowdy should get his ass kicked, and your calls and IMs!
