We'll have the latest on the rescue operation, and the long-awaited reunions. The Big Payback: Donald Trump's threats of revenge for his criminal conviction are getting more specific and more sinister. And his MAGA supporters are already trying to make it happen. Olivia Troye and Anthony Coley tell me why this rhetoric is so dangerous. And Defending Democracy at Home and Abroad: President Biden attends a state dinner with the French President after a week of honoring the heroes of D-Day 80 years ago and issues a new challenge to fight against autocracy around the world.

    The Sunday Show With Jonathan Capehart: June 2, 2024

    On this week's episode of 'The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart': Donald Trump ramps up his post-guilty verdict tirades, warning if he's sentenced to prison, that could be “a breaking point" for Americans. His MAGA Republican allies are backing him up, demanding retribution. And in a new interview, Stormy Daniels weighs in on what should happen to Trump. Plus, disorder in the Court. With major Supreme Court decisions on Trump and January 6 coming soon, Justice Alito is rejecting calls to recuse himself over his flag controversy. I'll ask Rep. Jerry Nadler, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary committee, about all of it. In addition, the Washington Post’s David Ignatius comes by to talk about the Israel-Hamas ceasefire plan President Biden announced that got drowned out by the legal drama around "the former guy." All that and more on “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”

    The Saturday Show With Jonathan Capehart: June 1, 2024

    The Saturday Show With Jonathan Capehart: June 1, 2024

    On this week's episode of 'The Saturday Show with Jonathan Capehart': For the first time in American history, a former president has been convicted for his criminal behavior, while still serving as the presumptive Republican nominee for President. Donald Trump calls the verdict "rigged" and himself “a political prisoner." But here’s the thing; he’s not in prison. And outrage in the MAGA world: Trump's allies, including the House Speaker and several potential Republican vice presidential candidates, are blasting the verdict and unleashing dangerous rhetoric against the justice system and our democracy itself. We'll talk about it all -- the prosecution and the politics -- with Rep. Maxine Waters of California and Politics Nation host, the Rev. Al Sharpton. We also have MSNBC political analysts Michelle Goldberg and Tim Miller and former federal prosecutor Ankush Khardori lend their thoughts. All that and more on “The Saturday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”

    The Sunday Show With Jonathan Capehart: May 26, 2024

    On this week's episode of 'The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart': This Memorial Day, how Donald Trump's praise for insurrectionists and dictators is a slap in the face to Americans who gave their lives in the fight for democracy at home and abroad. Presidential historian and author Jon Meacham, joins me to discuss the state of our democracy today. The beginning of the end: Catherine Christian and Ankush Khardori will break down what we can expect from closing arguments and jury instructions in Trump's hush-money election-interference trial this week and the chances that Trump will be the first former president convicted of a felony. Plus, a critical congressional race in Oregon that could factor in giving Democrats control of the House. I'll speak to the Democratic candidate hoping to make history. All that and more on “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”
