Sometimes I wonder

I generally like this podcast, but every now and then I wonder how Cato employs some of its people. Gene Healy today (2/16/21) said B Clinton's lying about a blow job was arguably less serious than D Trump's lying about inciting violence, and was worse than R Nixon's cover up and obstruction of justice. Is this guy for real?

Single Caucasian Male???

I suggest your ‘expert’ guests spend some time doing research. The male who grossly assaulted the 65 yr old Asian woman was not Caucasian. Also any discussion about domestic terror that does not mention ANTIFA or BLM, who are responsible for billions in damage and many lives lost, loses credibility. You can do better CATO
