EP. 45 — Trump’s Worst Week
Ana Marie Cox (With Friends Like These) and Mike Pesca (The Gist) join Negin to break down the week’s particularly dizzying news cycle. They get into the Comey paper trail, the new special prosecutor and Trump’s possible obstruction of justice. Plus, with so much going on in the West Wing, it can be difficult to keep up with non-Trump news. Fear not! Negin has a roundup of important stories you may have missed, from the resignation of the Census Director to Jeff Sessions’ mandatory minimum directive, and the Supreme Court’s rejection of the North Carolina Voter ID Law. Lastly, they hop on a phone call about polyamory with a man who is on his second open marriage.
