Former Republican National Committee Chairperson, Michael Steele, joins Rick on The Enemies List. They discuss the Republican majority for the upcoming term in the House. Who is really in control and the chaos that will ensue. Also on the docket is what happens to all the politicians that recognize Joe Biden as President and denounced the January 6th insurrection. Plus, Rick adds a new group to the growing Enemies List. Listen to find out who they are.
After spending the past week scrambling to defend Trump while attacking DA Alvin Bragg, Republican 2024 hopefuls have shot themselves in the foot instead of making a defiant stand against their most powerful opponent.
So where are the rest of the 2024 GOP presidential primary contenders, and what's holding them back from getting in the fight? Rick is joined by Politico's Jonathan Martin to discuss the Republican presidential field so far, what it may look like in the future, and what those odds are for future challengers to the orange man.
They've learned nothing. The GOP is repeating the 2016 strategic mess that got Trump elected the first time. Reed and Rick write that Republicans are acting out the definition of insanity: doing the same thing and expecting a different result.
Why do Republicans spend so much time focusing on China and ignoring the atrocities of Russia? Rick talks about this and more with author, historian and Washington Post contributor Max Boot including the present state of the GOP. Rick has a Week In Review and this week's addition to The Enemies List.
