Donald Trump

Does Meryl Streep Speak for America, Will Trump Be Awful, and What's Obama's Legacy? (Reason Podcast)

Nick Gillespie, Katherine Mangu-Ward, and Matt Welch discuss and debate.


At last night's Golden Globe awards, actress Meryl Streep gave an impassioned speech calling for creative types to stand up for the little guy now that Donald Trump is just week's away from becoming the 45th president of the United States. Was her speech just more Hollywood virtue-signaling or does it carry the harsh truth that the billionaire developer is going to rule with an iron fist and a harsh Twitter account? And while we're at it, isn't the presidency vastly more powerful than it was when Barack Obama took office eight years ago? Where were you when that was going on, coastal elites?

In the newest Reason podcast, Reason magazine Editor in Chief Katherine Mangu-Ward, Editor at Large Matt Welch, and I talk about all this and more.
