A no-bullshit conversation about politics hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor that breaks down the week’s news and helps people figure out what matters and how to help.
As Trump prepares to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, Jon and Dan talk about the consequences with one of the deal’s chief negotiators, Brian Deese. Then, they break down the politics of the decision, catch up on the latest Russia developments, and talk with Ana Marie Cox about Trump’s decision to rollback birth control coverage under Obamacare.
Trump jeopardizes the NATO alliance on his “historically successful” foreign trip, Kushner conducts secret diplomacy with a Russian banker, and the Democrats hone their message after Montana. Then, Senator Elizabeth Warren joins Jon, Jon, and Tommy in studio to discuss the fights Democrats should wage on behalf of working Americans.
Trumpcare gets a CBO score so bad that it causes Republicans to lie, cry, and body-slam a reporter in Montana. Then, the Atlantic’s Annie Lowrey talks to Jon and Dan about Trump’s budget, and Ana Marie Cox joins with a look at the President’s foreign trip.
Jon, Jon, Tommy, and Dan talk obstruction of justice and all the rest at the Ace Theater in Downtown LA. Plus Mayor Eric Garcetti joins to discuss the Democratic agenda and the lessons we can draw from success at the local level.
