There’s change afoot in Congress, and Greg Sargent—writer for The Washington Post’s must-read blog, The Plum Line—has some tips for the new leaders in town. His new book, “An Uncivil War: Taking Back Our Democracy in an Age of Trumpian Disinformation and Thunderdome Politics,” is both a deep dive into the Trump effect on our political system and a manual for how the new Congressional majority should seek to restore faith in democratic institutions. Sargent joined Daniella and Ed on the pod to get into the weeds of all of that and more and to explain what, exactly, he means by "thunderdome politics."
