I joined Julia Hartley-Brewer of talkRADIO to start the week with a look at Boris Johnson’s “Trump tactics” to try and become UK Prime Minister.
Boris Johnson is doing something new in British politics, in part because he’s watching Donald Trump and because he’s been talking to Trump’s former advisors, including Steve Bannon.
Rather than talk in tones that we’re used to within certain boundaries, he’ll lob verbal grenades — like Trump has done — to grab the headlines and grab the news cycle, even though it can be really divisive.
After that, we try to inject some sense into an over-reaction of a far-right surge in Swedish politics after Sunday’s election, assessing the real story of a diversifying system in which no party has a majority.
And then we glance at Vice President Mike Pence’s tactics amid the possibility that Donald Trump may not survive in office through next year.
