Monday’s executive order signed by President Trump to ban six predominantly Muslim countries (Iraq excluded) from entering the US was the opening topic of conversation on our early-week fix of Pod Save America.
Before addressing the comical elephant in the room that is the alleged wiretap on Trump’s phone, the Big Three – Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Tommy Vietor – tear apart the newest version of the travel ban and expose its catastrophic failures six weeks after the original blunder was imposed.
As Commander in Chief of the free world, Trump’s strategy in safeguarding borders hasn’t been so well received by federal officials, who have now stepped in and taken the form of frustrated college professors grading a bad student.
In true Pod Save America fashion, the guys take turns to vent on the wiretap subject and excoriate Trump for running with an illegitimate Breitbart News story claiming that Obama had ordered for Trump’s phone to be wiretapped for a stretch of the election campaign period.
Before US Rep. Adam Schiff joins in on the fun and voices his own issues, the witty humor applied on the subject dismisses any ounce of doubt of wrongdoing by Obama and his contingent.
With the possible nuclear threat from North Korea gaining traction over the past few days, this episode won’t make you feel any better about what’s to come.
Pod save us all.
