Everything is terrible! But we try to keep our spirits up on this week’s podcast. John Podhoretz, Abe Greenwald, and Noah Rothman point out that the two major candidates are unpopular and unsavory in different ways, gorillas are dragging kids around, and suddenly Americans aren’t living as long as they used to. Despite all that, we’re full of energy and vim and vigor. It’s like being on an elevator in free fall — scary but exhilarating! Give a listen here.

    John, Social Conservatives are you kidding me?!

    Social Conservatives in every state except for Maine, turned out for Trump in overwhelming numbers, abandoning Cruz who courted them for years.

    They did this despite knowing he was a New York liberal who has been divorced multiple times.

    If you think they are going to abandon Trump because of Transgendered bathrooms or abortion, you are completely out of touch.

    The hardest of hard core social conservatives went for Trump.  The Moral Majority wants to win.  And they see Trump as that vehicle.

    You have the death rate being up as a bad thing.  Why?  It would seem the death of working class whites mainly men to be a good thing by governmental standards.  You can reduce healthcare cost and get rid of whites all in one event.  A twofer so to speak.
