Episode #202: It’s My Party (And I’ll Cry If I Want To)

President Trump pledges to have a good working relationship with Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell at the same time his former chief strategist works for the defeat of Republican incumbents.  Republican strategist Vin Weber discusses the role of Steve Bannon in the 2018 midterms and how Trump has changed the party.

Ron Chernow talks about his new biography of Ulysses S. Grant and how his role as a military leader and president have long been underestimated by historians.

And conservative activist Linda Chavez takes us back to 2005, when she and others on the right worked to defeat President Bush’s choice of Harriet Miers for the Supreme Court.
