Contributor Post Created with Sketch. A Night with Yoo and You

 

John Yoo, distinguished Professor of Law, McRib aficionado and resident legal analyst on the Ricochet Podcast, has a new book coming out – Defender In Chief: Donald Trump’s Fight for Presidential Power.

Sharpen your pencils and your minds and bring your best questions! (And if you’re not a member, you can be!) Who knows? You might even win an autographed copy of the book!

    Yoo, Yoo, Yoo!,

    Sorry, John, I got carried away.

    Troy,

    Don’t be a wet blanket. He just needs a little theme music.

    Regards,

    Jim

    I’d love to have John Yoo as a professor. I’m not so sure about Richard Epstein.

    Say it ain’t so, Troy. Say it ain’t so!

    I feel confident he’d live up to my expectations, even though he’s a lawyer, because at least he’s not a politician. :)

    I’d even go eat at McDonalds with him, and I have not had a meal at McDonalds in about thirty years.

    I mean, I still wouldn’t eat the McRib, but I could choke down some French fries and a strawberry shake.

    I am really interested in checking this out. I love the Law Talk podcast too much. Though I am interested in how John squares his early criticism of Trump with, what I understand from the recent Ricochet podcast, his approval of his overall governance. 

    Also, we need Adrian Vermeule on a podcast. I’d love to know what Yoo thinks the AV both in terms of his actual beliefs and just about maybe being the “odd man out” in the faculty.

    Regarding royalties, I believe the standard rate is 15% for the author.

    Greg Mankiw has made 42 million dollars from his economics textbook.

    He no longer teaches intro economics at Harvard – can you blame him?
