“Remember Senator, today you’re pro-choice”

A new episode of our UnPresidented podcast is out.

On today’s show, Hurricane Harvey ravages Texas, so Donald Trump’s first impulse was to pardon a racist “for the ratings.”

Then Trump flies to Texas, interfering with disaster relief, but getting a great photo opp of Melania mingling with the little people in stiletto heels (seriously).

Cliff and I also discuss the Texas congressional delegation that nearly unanimously voted against Hurricane Katrina relief funding. You’ll be surprised to hear that they’re all in favor of such spending for Harvey.

In our second half, we discuss the latest blockbuster news about Trump-Russia, including the revelation that during last year’s presidential campaign Trump was secretly working on a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, financed by the Russian government. Yeah, good times.

That and more, with Cliff Schecter and John Aravosis.

As always, please subscribe to and rate our show on iTunes (if we get enough ratings, iTunes may feature us, which will help us a LOT).

And we’d love if you became a paid subscriber for our premium episodes on Patreon (about half of our show moving forward will be free, half premium). We’ll be using our donations to upgrade our equipment and hire a producer/sound engineer, and ultimately expand our show.

Thanks everyone, JOHN.
