June 8, 2018

Digby (@digby56) & Isabel Gillies  (@isabelgillies) join us for Casual Friday.

On today’s show: Trump says “I don’t think I have to prepare very much” for North Korea summit. Gorka mocks “clown” Dennis Rodman for attending Singapore summit, is possibly just jealous.

Heather Parton aka Digby (@digby56), of Salon.com and Digby’s Hullabaloo (digbysblog.blogspot.com) joins us to break down the latest tomfoolery from Washington DC. Trump’s utter lack of preparation for the G7 summit and naked fealty to Russia. Scott Pruitt’s fracking billionaire benefactor and the circle of corruption. What’s Giuliani doing in Israel? The role of economic sanctions. The sidelining of John Bolton. The Democrats’ enduring lack of nerve and need for new leadership.

Isabel Gillies (@isabelgillies) joins us to remember Anthony Bourdain and discuss the mental health crisis in this country. Check out her work at isabelgillies.com.
