The new, darker Donald Trump and his allies have been previewing how he’d use the Oval Office to seek revenge if he gets reelected.
On this weekly roundup, host Ron Steslow and guests Mike Madrid (Lincoln Project cofounder) and Olivier Knox (National Political Correspondent) discuss Trump’s darker turn and what, if anything, we can do now to prepare for a potential second term.
Then they look at Liz Cheney raising the alarm about Donald Trump, how her potential presidential run could impact the 2024 race, and her call for a potential new conservative party.
Next, they discuss the remarkably bad testimony from the presidents of Harvard, Penn, and MIT, the double standard for protecting free speech, and how they’re using the value of free speech as a weapon to punish disfavored speech.
