'It's Not About Donald Trump Being Crappy, It's About the Government Being Crappy': Podcast

The podcast crew takes on the The New York Times' controversial new hire, Trump's trade war escalations, Medicare-for-all, and 3D-printed guns.

Oliver Contreras/SIPA/NewscomOliver Contreras/SIPA/NewscomOver the weekend, Donald Trump tweeted that "tariffs are working big time" and said that his trade war would help us pay down the national debt. On today's Reason Podcast, special guests Eric Boehm and Robby Soave join Katherine Mangu-Ward and Peter Suderman to talk about the latest escalations in Trump's trade war and how Trump's bad trade policies are enabling cronyism.

Also on this week's podcast: Medicare for all costs how much? Will 3D-printed guns doom us all? And what are we supposed to make of The New York Times hiring technology writer Sarah Jeong, even with a history of controversial tweets? As always, we end with recommendations for books (Manhattan Beach), television (The Affair), and a video game (Wolfenstein II: The New Colussus).

    What about Hope Hicks?

    Helloooooooo Nurse!

    from the comments, glittering jewels that they are:

    Her left boob is lower than the right.
  • Rubbish!||

    Not true of the close up stepping off the plane. Nipples are nicely aligned. She does seem to have sagged a bit on the left after going indoors. That happens with some helium balloons too. She's very pretty.

    She would make an excellent home entertainment center.

    But if we didn't have a crappy government, then there wouldn't be as much crap going on.
    Did anyone ever think about that?
