Politics And Reality Radio: John Amato On Trump V. Gold Star Families

This week, we'll be joined by Sharona Coutts from Rewire News, who will tell us about a new analysis that found a significant overlap on social media between prominent white supremacists and the religious right.

Then we'll talk about Stephen Bannon's war on the Republican "establishment" -- and the grifters who are coming along for the ride -- with American Prospect columnist Eliza Newlin Carney.

Finally, we'll speak with rock star and Crooks and Liars founder John Amato about Donald Trump's latest public battle with a Gold Star family, and consider whether Niger is really "Trump's Benghazi."

Playlist:
Spearhead and Zap Mama: "To My Ba-Bay!"
Southern Culture on the Skids: "Country Funk"
Nightmares on Wax: "You Wish"
Otis Redding: "These Arms of Mine"
