That Trippi Show

Legendary Democratic campaign manager Joe Trippi skips the hot takes, outrage of the day, and viral tweets and breaks down how presidential and national politics work in 30 minutes or less. From Howard Dean's that reimagined modern presidential campaigns to the historic Senate victory of Doug Jones Senate over Roy Moore, Joe hasn't just seen it all - he's been in the thick of it. That Trippi Show answers the question that matter: How do Democrats win key races moving forward and save American democracy?

A House Of Crazies And Muttering About Jumpsuits
Trump's telling the MAGA House to shut down the government to avoid his prosecution - and we hear that behind the scenes, he's picking out his prison wardrobe... And we don't really see a way out for the 18 Republicans in Biden-held seats. Is this the most dysfunctional GOP ever? And what is Joe seeing behind the scenes in New Hampshire that might help a Trump primary challenger? How far might the fight go?

"Sometimes, You Just Gotta Call Out Their BS"
They just can't help themselves. Why impeachment (not to mention another shutdown attempt) will backfire on MAGA in the places they need help the most. 18 House Republicans in Biden-won districts will not like where this is going... and why John Fetterman's exactly right to call 'em out.

One Poll 14 Months Out Or 40 Years Of Presidential Results
We really need to stop handwringing about these polls! Joe gets into why 40 years of presidential elections show just how meaningless any poll 14 months out is. And how do Democrats handle the age question? Turns out, Joe Biden's already answering it. Hint: 170,000+ jobs created from the Inflation Reduction Act is just the start of the contrast.

Two Completely Different Worlds.
Who won the first GOP debate? You wouldn't know based on watching the coverage. Joe thinks he knows - but why won't he tell us who it is? What could change in Iowa? Plus, why we saw so many hopefuls tanking with general election voters in real time.

"It's Not A Political Party; It's An Authoritarian Movement"
Joe is joined by Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project, to talk all things Trump indictments and what to expect. Hint: We've still gotta beat him at the ballot box. And if you didn't think it was a vast criminal conspiracy before... of course there's video.

"Trust Me, I've Seen This Movie Before." Ohio, The Economy, And More
What does Joe think Ohio really shows about the MAGA cult? Joe explains why 57% (and counting) is a huge number and why it's further proof the red wave was never happening in 2022. But what does it mean going forward?

"I Don't Even Have A Word For How Despicable It Is"
Joe and Alex dive into some polling so bad we just had to talk about it. If you buy that Trump's winning women after losing them by 15 in 2020 and Dobbs - well, you can probably stop listening. So why are these polls even coming out? Joe has a theory.

"It's Been Over Since He Came Down The Damn Escalator"
Could the entire GOP field be having a worse week? Why the looming batch of indictments probably won't hurt Trump in the primary, but Joe thinks he could make the difference in the general. Yeah, Ron DeSantis is having a horrible week, is he the worst primary candidate ever? All of this is good news for Joe Biden, but why does Joe think his ceiling is even higher?
