Mary Katharine Ham and Bre Payton host the Inauguration Day episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, discussing their initial reactions to this weeks inaugural events, President Trumps speech, protestors in D.C., and why Americans cant trust the media to cover the Trump administration.
At the end of his address, he explicitly says that it aint about words anymore. Its about action and that is central to his message, Ham said. There is so much merit in throwing the deck in the air and confusing this town, and the fact that you and I, who mostly agree on policy, can have wildly different reactions to him.
