Donald Trump and the Republicans have reacted to the gruesome murder of Jamal Kashoggi like we figured they would. They say he’s not a real American, he’s a Muslim, it’s a Turkish problem, we don’t know who did it, could have been anyone… maybe a 400 pound guy living in his mom’s basement. Trump does a lot of business with the Saudis – they don’t want to mess that up. The Republican party went from tolerating Trump, to covering for Trump, to getting completely behind Trump and propping him up. And that’s why we talk through it every week on this show. It’s not hate. It’s disappointment.
Brian Forster will tell us why Trump and Kushner can’t afford to deal severely with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, and it has nothing to do with diplomacy.
Plus, Republicans are always talking about voter fraud, but the real issue is voter suppression. Seth Blair will report on that and how it could impact this year’s election.
We’ve got all that and more, on this week’s Cup of Joe Politics Podcast.
