Amy Swearer, senior legal policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation, joins us to discuss the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. First, we discuss politicians’ and the media’s eagerness to blame everything from video games to Fox News for the shootings. We then talk about the liberal outrage mob that broke out when The New York Times correctly reported that President Donald Trump denounced hatred and white supremacy. Finally, Swearer breaks down some commonsense solutions to curb gun violence, while still respecting the Constitution.

Also in this week’s “Problematic Women,” we discuss:

Jessica Anderson, vice president of Heritage Action for America, joins us to discuss a recent survey commissioned by the organization that reveals the top issues that concern women, whether their opinions really differ from those of men, and how women feel about President Donald Trump’s performance—and personality—thus far. Specifically, we discuss what the results tell us about suburban women and their take on the so-called soft issues, such as immigration and abortion.

We also discuss:

Kelsey Bolar sits down with Heritage Foundation research fellow and mother of six, Rachel Greszler. Greszler breaks down why a top down, big government paid family leave program would actually hurt women, and why the private sector is better equipped to provide solutions.

“Conservatives, do support paid family leave,” Greszler said. “We want workers to be, mothers to be able to stay home with their children… What we don’t support is a one size fits all government program that tells workers the type of leave they can take and when they can take it.”

Did the confirmation battle of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh help or hurt the #MeToo movement? How did the mainstream media miss so many red flags regarding his multiple accusers? And what was the horrific media storm like for the Kavanaugh family? In this week’s edition of Problematic Women, we interview Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, authors of the best-selling new book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” on what really happened during the hearings, and what that means for the future of the Court and all Americans.

Also in today’s podcast:

USA! The United States women’s national team won its second consecutive World Cup after defeating the Netherlands national team last weekend. Of course, the title doesn’t come without controversy, with team members declining a White House invitation and co-captain Megan Rapinoe doing a media circuit bashing President Trump. We’ll break down all the drama, as well as the equal pay debate.

Also on the podcast:

On a special Independence Day edition of “Problematic Women,” we team up with Jarrett Stepman and Fred Lucas, co-hosts of The Daily Signal’s “Right Side of History” podcast, to discuss some of the most problematic women throughout American history.

We begin by honoring the legacy of Betsy Ross after Nike pulled its latest USA-themed sneaker from the shelves in light of the claim by Colin Kaepernick, NFL player and liberal activist, that the “Betsy Ross flag” featured on the sneaker was offensive.

This week on Problematic Women we interview, Shannon Bream, host of “Fox News at Night” and author of the new book, “Finding the Bright Side: The Art of Chasing What Matters.” We ask her about her time at Fox News—including through the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal, her decision not to have children, her experience with chronic pain, and whether or not she identifies as a feminist.

We also discuss:

In a recent poll for “Axios on HBO,” 55% of American women say they would prefer to live in a socialist country over a capitalist country. This week on “Problematic Women” we discuss why women are embracing socialism and what can be done to stop this trend. Also, we break down why freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says members of Congress, despite already making $174,000 a year, deserve a pay raise.

We crown Yale University graduate and future Justice Brett Kavanaugh law clerk Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld Problematic Woman of the Week.
