Episode #278: President de Blasio? Fuhgeddabowdit!

The battles over abortion continue, as they have since Alabama passed a very restrictive law and, quite frankly, as they have since the Roe decision 46 years ago.  Julie Rovner of Kaiser Health News offers a history of abortion in politics.

The decision by Michigan Congressman Justin Amash to support the impeachment of President Trump makes him the only Republican in office with that position.  And it has put a bullseye on his back, especially from the president and his supporters.  Todd Spangler of the Detroit Free Press discusses his political future.

And New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has become the latest Democrat to jump into the presidential arena.  Grace Rauh of NY1 sums up de Blasio’s record, warts and all, and analyzes how he might play nationally.
