Jonah brings Mo Eleithee, the founding Executive Director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service and a former high-ranking employee for the Democratic National Committee, for a productive (!) and civil (!!) conversation between two reasonably disagreeing adults about politics (!!!). They discuss the 2020 Democratic primary, Trump’s re-election prospects, and how the Democratic Party could lose what George H.W. Bush called “the Big Mo” by writing off white working-class voters.
