Richard and Adam close the book on the Trump years — except for the whole post-presidential impeachment thing. And Richard elaborates his case for regulating Twitter as a “common carrier.” Looking ahead to what the new Biden Administration might bring about, they both already disagree with some of the Administration’s day-one policies. Does the end of Trump’s era, and the beginning of Biden’s, mark the end of Richard’s and Adam’s own “reasonable disagreements” with each other? Surely not! But the disagreements will be fewer and farther between.

    I’m glad Professor Epstein is feeling reasonable, because I’m not hearing anything like reason out of Mr. White. 

    The limited time of impeachment gives a bad incentive to presidents to misbehave when it’s too late to prosecute? If we’re going to worry about that then howabout we delay the inauguration until the questions about the election are settled first.

    Biden as a dignified public figure? Big f’n deal if true. If nothing else do you remember the 2012 vice presidential debate? 

    Unity? I don’t give a fig for promises of unity. Let’s see the left move to compromise, at all, on anything. You know, like not signing on with the Paris Accords in the first twenty four hours. Oh wait, blew that opportunity. But I’m sure that we’ll be seeing that hand of reconciliation any day now.

    I had to stop listening to this, but got almost to the end. Professor White seems to admire Mr. Biden inordinately. Did anyone mention Tara Reade and the selectively-applied “believe all women” doctrine?

    “During the 2020 election campaign for President of the United States in March 2020, Tara Reade, a former staffer in Biden’s U.S. Senate office, alleged that Joe Biden, the former U.S. vice president and Democratic nominee in the 2020 presidential election sexually assaulted her in 1993 in a Capitol Hill office building when she was a staff assistant in his office.”

    Remember, Adam White sold his soul to The Bulwark, which group is pretty much owned now by the center-left.

    I’ve been listening to this podcast for years and I’ve found reasonableness from Prof. White to be the rare exception.
