“Ted Cruz & masturbation are not things you can take lightly”

Family-values conservative Ted Cruz is embroiled in a Twitter sex scandal, while the nation reels from the after-effects of the second major hurricane to hit the US in the past month.

In today’s podcast, Cliff Schecter and John Aravosis discuss the Cruz scandal (2:30), Seb Gorka’s oddly-timed visit to Israel (8:19), Breitbart’s fury over Trump refusing to say “radical Islamic terrorism” (12:00), Steve Bannon’s “60 Minutes” attack on Hillary Clinton (16:46), Ted Cruz’s “safe word” (23:04), the recent spate of Republican retirements and whether they’ll help Democrats take back the Congress in 2018 (23:32), and climate change’s role in Hurricanes Irma and Harvey (49:16).
