If you want an expert on the Republican party, look to Tim Alberta, the author of the sensational new book American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump. Jay puts him through his paces, and Alberta is in excellent form. He even jabs Jay at the end of the podcast about college football — in response to which, Jay can only smile weakly, dreaming of the approaching season.

    I think a lot of those Republicans who speak of Trump one way in private and another way publicly may see they have no choice. They know Trump is crazy but with Trump they can get judges and tax cuts. If the Democrats take over? They only get crazy. If Trump really wants what is good for this country, he would not run again. But then again, if that were the case he wouldn’t have come down that golden escalator either.

    Jay is muscling in on the Commentary podcast’s “crushing morosity” territory.
