Blood in the Water

Welcome my friends to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number 203 it is the Blood in the Water edition of the show with your feeding frenzy hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. This week we focus, nay, we obsess, on the emerging picture of what makes Trump tick and how will he handle the ever-circling legacy media sharks because they smell the blood in the water! they are looking to *bring Trump down*! Will they finally have there way? Or will Trump just swim like the giant whale he is merrily along enjoying all the attention that the efforts at impeachment will attract to him? (like he doesn’t have enough attention already). We will discuss.

Our shower thoughts of course! And this week’s hidden gem (continuing *someone’s* psychodrama) is Dido’s signature hit White Flag. Enjoy!

    Trump’s lazy *because* he relies on his instincts and he’s become convinced it works. Like the kid who didn’t study but gets a B and thinks this is how to get good grades.

    It’s one of the more maddening things.  He’s Mike Tyson.  Great knockout power, and no one’s really sure how great he’d be he had some technique to back up the brawling savagery, and certain thought that if he did have technique, he wouldn’t be Tyson

    White Flag was a perfect hidden gem.  I could see the President saying one term and out – and I could see him running again.  Happy Gaudete Sunday everyone!

    There’s a saying in music: “learn the technique, lose the art.” Applies her as well.

    Ya, good enough. I like the Tyson analogy for Trump, but for Tyson going to prison on sexual assault charges. And in the show description Stopa calls Trump a whale, which doesn’t seem to describe either he or Tyson, so we have to deal with that.

    Dido elevates innocuous to felonious levels, so lacks the punch to trigger nausea.

    Trump as the Mule.  A magnificent analogy.
