Episode 17: Political Time
2 days ago
The passing of Barbara Bush prompts Tyler and Larry to discuss the incivility and vulgarity of our current politics and whether this incivility represents a new era in political time. The Filibluster duo also focus in on Scott Pruitt’s list of misdeeds and corruption and point out that the policy impact of Pruitt is actually far more deleterious than is widely recognized. Of course, this naturally leads into a discussion of Michael Cohen, Sean Hannity, and Jar Jar Binks’s role in the Republic (not necessarily in that order).
