Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Podcast for July 11, 2017 it’s the Long Never Trump edition of the podcast with our special guest Rob Long (or as we call him at Ricochet, The Big Cheese)!

As the followers of this podcast know, we are (often enthusiastic) supporters of the President and have been since before the Republican primaries began.
