Today we talk about Trump's increasing efforts to derail his own presidential bid and blame others for his demise. We take a look back at a week that saw Trump attack the family of a U.S. soldier who lost his life in Iraq; the release (some say by the Donald himself) of naked pics of Milania Trump; uneasy "sane" Republicans begin to speak out against Trump; and, the Trumpster's inability to keep his fingers off the Twitter.
This week also saw the launch of Bernie Sanders's new organization, "Our Revolution,"
which promised to continue the fight to bring a political revolution to American politics, advancing a progressive agenda. The organization plans on supporting at least 100 candidates for local, state, and national office this fall. Have progressive finally learned that we need to invest in building our institutions for the long term? We shall see.
Yesterday, the progressive Pramila Jayapal
, won the Washington State primary. If her victory is any indication of a shift in the political wins in the country, that's good news for Zephyr Teachout's campaign
in New York and Jamie Ruskin's
in Maryland. A more progressive Congress in 2017? Just might be.
We also talk about a newly released Franklin and Marshal poll showing Hillary pulling away from Trump by 11 points in PA. We're seeing similar results across the rust belt states.
Finally, Sean fills us in on the latest Pizza Boy can release and Kevin "discovers" a hilarious hipster word...a couple years late. All this and more!
