Politics And Reality Radio: Amanda Marcotte Reflects On A Long, Twisted Week In Trumpworld
July 23, 2018

This week, Salon columnist Amanda Marcotte joins us to talk about a week like no other in Trump's "presidency." Will his base ever be bothered by Marshal Tweeto's incompetence and corruption?

Then we're joined by Mike Lux, head of the non-profit American Family Voices and author of How to Democrat in the Age of Trump. Mike argues that many of the debates that fascinate the pundits are actually false choices.
