Ep. 822 America’s Ability to Tolerate Risk, and Hillary Clinton’s Cringe Comeback Attempt

Megyn is joined by Mike Rowe, writer and star of Something to Stand For, to discuss the decline of patriotism in the United States, the polarization we see today, the freedom we have in America and the risk that comes with it, how this country is different from so many others that aren’t capitalistic, an incredible story about prominent American leaders and “bull testicles,” the erosion of trust Americans have in the corporate media, the way today’s journalists are no longer skeptical of those in power, why a journalist’s goal shouldn’t be gaining power and popularity, and more. 

Then, Maureen Callahan, author of Ask Not: The Kennedys and the Women They Destroyed, joins to discuss Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s embarrassing attempt to connect with young voters, it’s failed attempt to help fellow ‘Squad’ member Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY), his blowout loss to a moderate primary challenger, Hillary Clinton’s cringe new book cover that looks nothing like her, how out-of-touch her New York Times op-ed about her debate technique is, Jennifer Lopez’s relentless focus on herself, her inability to convince America that she is really just “Jenny from the Block,” and more.
