Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

Is Glenn Greenwald full of it? Not completely, as David Waldman determines in today’s KITM. We aren’t really “at war” with Russia, so where’s the crime in some unmonitored hijinks? David sorts out the thinking in Greenwald’s twitter rant, and considers the distinctions between American Interests and Trump’s Interests, and Putin’s Interests and Russian Interests, because heaven knows Donald Trump won’t. Does Donald have a special weakness for strong men, or is it that maybe he’s genuinely confused about why that's "bad”?

Speaking of taking the time to consider nuances, Dr. T’Chanda Prescod-Weinstein wants to reduce the antisemitic conflation of Jews and Zionists.

It’s hard to beat the scum and villainy of Trump Tower I, or Trump Tower Toronto, or SoHo, or Vietnam, or Scotland, but Trump Tower III in Miami could be contender if a pair of Russian husband and wife human trafficking high-end prostitution entrepreneurs have anything to say about it.
