This edition: The Politics of Abortion

Episode Details

Original tape date: May 23, 2019.

First aired: May 24, 2019.

More and more states have passed bills this year restricting abortion rights, with the Alabama bill being almost a total ban. This makes abortion a hot-button, culture wars political issue in the 2020 election cycle. How will Republicans and Democrats approach the issue and does either side have a political edge?

President Trump has a full plate of global conflicts in play, from China to Venezuela, from Iran to North Korea. Not to mention his battles with House Democrats. Will all the drama overshadow a strong economy in the 2020 election.

Plus: "Chumps to Champs:" the story of how the disastrous Yankee teams of the early 1990's turned into a baseball dynasty in just a few years.
