Progressive politics, news & talk hosted by David Waldman

David Waldman’s morning set at the KITM World Headquarters’ Comedy Kitchen opened quite upbeat today, wondering “what’s the deal” with toothpicks, crazy parkers, idiot Presidents and such, but soon segued into darker territory—the moment a soon to be award-winning photographer captured that moment a "law-abiding" open-carrying good guy with a gun became none of the above. What is the deal with violence-cosplaying alt-right 4chan incels?

Then the discussion got real. The necessity of an impeachment inquiry has placed Democrats into competing existential crises—save their job, or save the rule of law? It would be a real shame to lose swing state Democrat Katie Porter, but even as she realizes the precariousness of her situation, she also knows the importance of this moment to everyone’s future. David returns to Robert Mueller’s “Take Care” clause, then travels over to Article Two of the Constitution to see what can be done, and finally takes a thorough look into the Office of Legal Counsel, in particular the Trump administration’s abuse of that institution.
