In our weekly 20-minute review of Trump-Land, I joined Alexis Conran and Andre Walker of talkRADIO on Saturday.

Topics include Donald Trump’s latest tweets whipping up division and attacking his agencies, as the Russia investigation closes in; November’s Congressional elections; the possible extent of the conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Kremlin-linked officials; and the difference between journalism, Fox News, and Breitbart.

There’s even a shout-out to Britney Spears.

This is a very toxic atmosphere, and the chief man whipping it up is Donald Trump.

We can tie this into issues about being racist. We can tie this into issues about being misogynist. We can tie this into issues about creating a shadow “Left”, a stick-man Left, to try to get away with this.

Bottom line right now is Donald Trump feeling more and more embattled, and each day he’ll take it out on someone different.
