Jonah Goldberg is a syndicated conservative columnist, political analyst, commentator, podcast host, and author of Bridget’s Bible: Suicide of the West. Jonah shares how his upbringing in a media and politics-heavy household shaped his future, and gave him a realistic perspective about politics and the media that most people don’t have. He and Bridget discuss the dangers a generation of children pose when they’ve been raised to believe that their feelings are the only source of authority they need, why middle-aged managers are terrified of their “woke” 20-something staffers, and how fragility is being taught rather than mental toughness. They cover young conservatives being led to believe that it’s cool to be a**holes, why not allowing people to grow or change their positions is not a good practice, how Americans are much richer than they realize, and why Twitter makes you feel like you’re living in a small town where everyone’s in your business. Check out his podcast The Remnant.

    I just don’t get the animosity towards the Trumpster.  I really don’t. Jonah comparing Trump’s Ukraine stuff with Biden is simply insane.  

    This whole National Review anti-Trump is just weird to me.  Hell, I was a subscriber since 92 and still revere the NR cover THE WAR ON DRUGS IS LOST, I think that was back in 95.  

    For a conservative rag to say that was incredible. And to be against illegal immigration too back when all the cool kids were for unlimited immigration, it was like they were speaking to me specifically. 

    Then… BOOM! They went nuts. Like I said, weird.
