This episode covers Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis, the first presidential debate and how SNL parodied it, and whether sente candidate Cal Cunningham’s sexting scandal could doom the Democrats’ chances for control of the senate.
This special retrospective episode looks back at the early days of The More Perfect Union podcast from our very first podcast in September of 2015 through the end of 2016, with clips that cover the rise of Trump, chaos in the GOP primary campaign, and the Hillary-Bernie battle for the soul of the Democratic party.
This special “after-dark” episode of the #MPUpodcast finds the gang bantering about their early careers, the trials and tribulations of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the legacy of controversial Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn, and lots of Trump Administration gossip in-between.
