Trump threatens fire & fury

Hosted by , and

President Trump has threatened "fire & fury" if the North Koreans don't stop threatening us, so in response, the North Koreans threatened to attack Guam. Is the president going to tweet his way into a war? Two experts join us to discuss Kim Jong Un's options and ours. The FBI raided Paul Manafort's house last month in a significant escalation of the Russia investigation. Maybe that's why the president suddenly got so mad at the acting FBI director? Juliette Kayyem will tell us what she thinks the raid means. Then, John Carney, a recently named editor at Breitbart, addresses the feud between Trump and Mitch McConnell. Is that who's stopping Trump from draining the swamp? Finally, Google and diversity.
