Trump and McConnell’s Political Cold War Could Cost the American People ‘Bigly’

Trump is not backing down to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and establishment Republicans.

The New York Times reported the president is on such bad terms with McConnell that the two haven’t spoken in weeks. This is particularly troubling as urgent deadlines for Republicans loom once Congress returns from recess in September.

McConnell spoke in private about the matter saying he doesn’t believe the president’s administration can be salvaged, although we’re only eight months in.

A call reportedly happened on August 9 between Trump and McConnell and was subsequently leaked. Initiated by Trump, the call consisted of Trump bashing McConnell for failing to pass the Republican health care bill and for not doing enough to protect the president during the Russian probe. The conversation became hostile and essentially ended in a screaming match between the two after weeks of private bad mouthing.

Today on Think Thank the panel discussed how establishment Republicans’ political feud with Trump is bad for Americans and puts the GOP’s agenda at risk.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
