A witty, “man on the street” look at the politics of the week. Humorists Will Roberts and Kevin E. West examine the highlights and lowlights of politics, with guests Ben Krause of disabledveterans.org and Rachna Choudhry of POPVOX.com. Tune in as we discuss what’s happening inside the Trump White House and Congress—as well as the Washingtonian scandals and behind-the-scenes maneuvers of the week.
On this week’s show, we’re talking about leadership styles in the Trump White House. Is this still a father-and-sons family business, or a global superpower? Will and Ben take a look at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs’s new tool, Video Connect, which enables veterans to connect with the VA via mobile devices or on the Internet. And Rachna gives us the scoop from Capitol Hill, where Congress overwhelmingly passed a bill increasing sanctions against Russia before leaving for August recess. (And did we mention that Congress isn’t the only one on break? President Trump is on a two-week “working vacation” to New Jersey.)
