Jeb Bush says Donald Trump cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons. Reminiscent of the old liberal LBJ attacks against conservative Barry Goldwater, we explore the validity of the accusation. And we ask: Do Americans really trust their "foreign policy establishments" anymore? Do our hyper-interventionist foreign policy experts truly possess expertise? Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Ukraine? Trump's stated foreign policy appears less interventionist than most other GOP candidates, as he declares an unwillingness to start "World War Three" over Syria and uses his early opposition to the Iraq War as an applause line in campaign speeches. Have we come full circle on Iraq? Further notes on the Jeb-Trump feud over 9/11. Will billionaire Sheldon Adelson support Marco Rubio? Would Adelson's support turn Rubio into "a perfect little puppet," as Trump contends? With music and listener calls.
