A listener reminds Sean and Paul that they’ve been pretty rough on the old Donald since…the beginning of the podcast, so they put their thinking caps on to find something good, or at least not utterly terrible, about the Trump administration. Along the way they discuss tariffs, the FDA and reciprocity, North Korea, and angry neo-cons.
On this episode, Paul and Sean discuss the Jones Act of 1920, an incredibly daft law that makes life in Puerto Rico (and Hawaii and Alaska) unnecessarily expensive. Then Sean, in an impressive act of masochism, takes us along on his deep dive into libertarian podcasts. Finally, they wrap up with a discussion of silliness vs substance in politics (detouring to consider James Akin’s famous “Philosophic Cock” cartoon lampooning Thomas Jefferson).
