The Terrible Thing That Trump and Elijah Cummings Agree On

Fight Censorship, Share This Post!

Poor Mick Mulvaney! Just kidding—the White House chief of staff (and director of the Office of Management and Budget) is, according to Nick Gillespie, a bald-faced and balding “liar.” And that was just within the first 10 minutes of today’s Editors Roundtable edition of the Reason Podcast.

Katherine Mangu-Ward, Peter Suderman, and Matt Welch take swings at bipartisan budget awfulness, Federal Reserve debt monetization, David Simon grumpiness, and—yes!—President Donald Trump’s swipes at Rep. Elijah Cummings (D–Md.), the City of Baltimore, and its residents. The editors also discuss what they learned on their summer vacations, tiptoe into the bi/trans wars, and even say nice things about you, the listening public!
