Curmudgeon’s Corner: Soap Opera of the Royal Court

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan get some feedback. It seems last week’s show was their worst show ever. Too much Russia conspiracy theory stuff and Trump palace intrigue stuff. Not enough on “real” policy stuff. So they talk about that feedback and defend themselves a bit. Then they move on to talk about, well, uh, Trump palace intrigue stuff. They wrap it up with reaction to PA-18 and what it may mean for Election 2018, which is at least a little different, right?
