Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
On today’s podcast, Abe Greenwald, Noah Rothman, and John Podhoretz ventilate upon the president-elect’s decision to attack a local union official by name — a classic instance of punching down, a style Trump has used to great effect — and wonder what it portends for a presidency that wishes to project strength above all. We worry about the PEOTUS’s apparent unwillingness to divest himself of his businesses and the political problems it will cause both him and the Republican party, not to mention the potential for policy chaos. And we don’t let Barack Obama off the hook either for his speech full of self-praise for the terrorism problem he has actually exacerbated. Give a listen.
