Professor Richard Conley, an expert on congressional and presidential relations, says Trump could be in for a rough honeymoon with Congress if he keeps villainizing people. The boss, Bruce Springsteen, tells podcaster Marc Maron that it is the people he writes about who are going to be the most negatively affected by a Trump presidency. And Bill Press talks with California Congressman Raul Ruiz about Obamacare and other topics.

Bruce Springsteen

We don’t usually have entertainers on the program, but we have a special guest this week, courtesy of the podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” Bruce Springsteen talks with Marc about the irony of the very people the Boss writes about in his songs being hoodwinked by Trump.

 

Raul Ruiz

Bill Press talks with California Democrat Raul Ruiz about prospects for the 115th Congress.
