161. American Dilemmas
Mona begins with a guest: Walter Olson, of the Cato Institute. They talk about the Libertarian party and the Libertarian ticket of Gary Johnson and William Weld. Then Jay joins Mona for some Trump talk: Trump U, the “Mexican” judge, and so on. For the remainder of the show, Mona leads a discussion of some big problems facing America: runaway entitlements, debt, a feeble foreign policy. Jay chimes in dyspeptically. Mona is indulgent. In conclusion, Jay relates an unusual lunchtime encounter.
