Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

The first debate for the 2020 Presidential election! Who won? Who lost? What were the defining moments? Surprises? Fails? Triumphs? Takeaways? What were the takeaways? We need the takeaways!

Just don’t ask David Waldman for them. Oh, go ahead and ask, but it’ll probably go to his answering machine; this is a travel day for him. Instead, enjoy this special Kagro in the Morning, chockablock with exactly what sets KITM apart from the others—forays into the outer, icky edges of Trumpworld’s web of sleaze and corruption:

The N.R.A.’s longtime C.F.O. was caught embezzling before joining the N.R.A., an organization renown for giving such down on their luck a second chance

The compassion continues at the White House, with the official in charge of U.S. arms control with Moscow covering for Kremlin connection Paul Erickson, the former boyfriend of Russian agent Maria Butina.

Donald Trump works his way back to the Founding Fathers to burn each bridge created in American history. He’s reached year 145, dodging the international postal service, and managing to suppress the vote while he’s at it.

David tells us the one about the Evangelical, the Pool Boy, and Michael Cohen. Then there’s the one, or actually the five about Duncan Hunter.

Tonight... back to the debates. Joe Biden has the experience, but how far back will his opponents’ memories go?
