Death Panel for Ryancare in a Frantic News Week: The Fifth Column

Hate-crime hoaxes, Tony Blair's testicles, real estate racism, and more


A couple of hours after Ryancare went down to a dusty death on Friday, The Fifth Column, your weekly podcast troika of Kmele Foster, Michael C. Moynihan, and me, popped open some Flying Dog and Johnnie Walker and let 'er rip. You can listen right here:

Among the cud chewed: President Donald Trump's possible post-Ryancare pivots, Republican confusion on Obamacare, this article by Peter Suderman, the Israeli anti-JCC bomb-threat caller, media susceptibility to hoaxes, Moynihan's forthcoming HBO documentary on American foreign policy post-"New World Order" speech, Kmele's weird experiences in New York real estate, some Masshole named Steve, and much more.
