Michael Bloomberg chooses to become a kingmaker rather than a presidential candidate…the Democrats play footsie with socialism…Ilhan Omar and anti-Semitism, House Democrats open a sweeping corruption probe into Trump’s world, and a look at the life of Theodore Roosevelt with historian David Pietrusza and his book TR’S LAST WAR: THEODORE ROOSEVELT, THE GREAT WAR, AND A JOURNEY OF TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY and we’re just beginning. Welcome to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show and our weekly political review with Halli and veteran White House correspondent Matthew Cooper the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com and on all your favorite apps.
As always, Halli and Matt slice and dice the week’s political news. There’s a lot of news and a lot of questions. Now that Michael Bloomberg is out, will former Vice President Joe Biden toss his hat into the presidential ring? Do the Democrats have an anti-Semite in their midst and what to do about Rep. Ilhan Omar?
In our second half-hour, Halli speaks with author and historian David Pietrusza about his fascinating book TR’S LAST WAR: THEODORE ROOSEVELT, THE GREAT WAR, AND A JOURNEY OF TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY, a lively, witty, take on one of America’s greatest presidents. As seen through the lens of the Bull Moose, the 1916 presidential campaign, America’s entry into the Great War in 1917, Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, Pietrusza not only transports readers with his dramatic portraits of TR, his hated rival Wilson, and politics in wild flux, but also poignantly chronicles the horrific price a family pays in war and so much more.
