Malcolm Gladwell sells books with capitalist gusto, but how would he fare as part of a socialist political bloc? Sean and Paul consider whether, if the Popular Front were revived, Gladwell would be a comrade (along with co-belligerent Matthew Yglesias). Also, Paul continues his rant on Trump’s ill-considered tweets about broadcasting.
Sean and Paul briefly discuss the revolt among Trump’s base over the proposed DACA deal as well as the patriarchal wet dream that is the Bruce Willis remake of 1972’s Death Wish. Then, they turn their attention to the undeserved good reputation of America’s 35th President, John F. Kennedy.
