On today’s show, Steve Clemons (@SCClemons) of The Atlantic joins us to discuss foreign policy with regards to North Korea. In many ways, Clemons says, the U.S. has become the rogue nation in the equation. Trump is dismantling the diplomatic options and leaning on military power, possibly in an effort to distract us from the Russia investigation. Yikes!

In the fun half: Whitefish Energy picks a Twitter fight with San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, Trump complains some more about how unfairly the fake news media is treating him, Trump brags about his excellent "president president" relationship with China's president Xi Jinping, George H.W. Bush gropes women from his wheelchair, Mark Halperin's pervy behavior and weaksauce apology, and a ten-year-old girl with cerebral palsy got caught by ICE on her way to the hospital.
