Of course they lean left

I’m reading a bunch of one-star reviews complaining that these four guys who worked for Obama and are unabashed liberals are too left-leaning. I mean, how the hell did you think these guys were going to lean politically? If you object to a bunch of liberals on a podcast ripping Trump, maybe you should look in the mirror a little.
