News this week makes the argument that the Trump campaign might have engaged in at least some footsie with Russia harder to refute than ever, as we discuss on the podcast.

The 2018 midterm elections look more like a Democratic rout than they did a week ago. The hosts discuss what the elections mean for Donald Trump’s coalition ahead of 2020. Also, French President Emmanuel Macron’s strange definition of nationalism.

More

We delve into the results of last night’s election and allow Sohrab Ahmari to take a victory lap—which he kind of refuses to take because it wasn’t a wave but it wasn’t not a wave, see. You don’t see? Give a listen.

The president’s new web advertisement featuring an illegal immigrant who is also an unrepentant murderer drives home the themes he’s been pushing as his closing argument for 2018. Along with moving troops to the border and flirting with an executive order challenging birthright citizenship in the 14th Amendment, the president seems set on whipping up nativist sentiment. Or is he?

So Elizabeth Warren has a teeny bit of Native American blood in her. Why is this a big deal, or a deal at all?

Give a listen.

Today’s podcast takes up the question of who’s benefited from the Kavanaugh controversy—the answer remains unclear—and asks whether Hillary Clinton’s and Eric Holder’s denunciations of “civility” are the way the Democratic Party will continue to avoid the introspection necessary to reverse its decade of political horror.

Are we defending him because we are genuinely discomfited by how insubstantial the allegations against him are, or are we doing so because we agree with him ideologically? We explore this on today’s podcast. Give a listen.
