It's beyond fantastic

They're great. It's true. They do a great job Tremendous people. Making America great (again).

Gavbod ,

Once left leaning discussion and analysis but trust in the information they supply is suspect.

Left leaning information and discussion on the political and social issues in the US. I have enjoyed the teams discussion on a variety of topics but unfortunately they refused to tackle Clinton and her issues once she became the DNC nominee, becoming a solely anti Trump and now I can no longer trust the information they supply or the analysis they give.
