Bhaskar Sunkara (@sunraysunray), founder of Jacobin magazine, on to discuss the assassination of Fred Hampton, and political organizing and activism in the age of Trump. The Jacobin article, "Politics is the Solution," written in the early hours following Trump's victory. The incredible inanity of Hillary's "America never stopped being great" response to "Make America Great Again." What is the natural constituency for centrist democrats?
On the fun half - How big of a headache will Dems make the cabinet confirmation process? Reince shows the GOP commitment to the Trump's New Mendacity. Trump bumble into Chinese/Tiawanese relations.
