The Ruling Class shows growing signs of panic as it struggles to contain populist, outsider candidates for President. American elites are presently flummoxed, perplexed and vulnerable. Will they be able to reassert control over the process? Meanwhile, Trump rolls with increased momentum. Megyn Kelly takes a vacation. Jeb Bush says taking out Saddam was "a pretty good deal." Trump responds with incredulity. Are GOP voters ready for a clean break on Iraq? Trump signals "restraint" on foreign policy, in the Middle East and even Ukraine. Meanwhile, hysterical pundit George Will goes nuclear on Trump. We discuss Trump as "entertainer" through the prism of Roman statesman Cicero. We ask: Is it bad for a candidate to be so entertaining? With music and listener calls.
