PODCAST 42: TRUMPOPHOBIA - THE MADNESS OF THE LEFT AND THE WEAKNESS OF THE GOP



Andy and Colin are joined by political analyst Keith Preston of Attack the System to talk about the Trump phenomenon and why a man who essentially makes sensible, middle-of-the-road statements so successfully "triggers" the media, the establishment, and the Left, and what this reveals about the deeply unhealthy nature of American society and its economy.
