Ep. 819 Donald Trump Picks His Vice President, and Special Counsel Jack Smith’s Election Interference

Megyn is joined by Victor Davis Hanson, author of The End of Everything, to discuss the major stakes in Thursday’s debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, what is on the line for both candidates, how Trump should handle the moment, the latest on the 2024 polling, black voters still supporting Trump in record numbers, Trump saying he has selected his running mate but not revealing who it is, why Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) is a frontrunner despite his previous criticisms of Trump, the positives Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum could bring to the ticket, the surge of violent crimes against young girls by illegal immigrants, the left and media downplaying the severity of the crisis, MSNBC laughing about one of the cases, one MSNBC host refusing to use the term “illegal” to describe a criminal, and more. 

Then, Jonathan Turley, author of The Indispensable Right, joins to discuss Special Counsel Jack Smith pushing to put a gag order on Trump in his Florida classified documents case, the way a gag order on Trump is akin to election interference, the unconstitutionality of gag orders in the first place, the absurdity of the New York business records trial, the ongoing attacks on Judge Aileen Cannon in Florida, whether Smith could get booted from the case, how the attacks on free speech relate to January 6, a newly revealed video showing former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi admitting responsibility for the January 6 riot, whether the video was suppressed until now, the attacks on free speech in the U.S., and more.
