HLC-070-Great Right Hope

Welcome to the Great Right Hope edition HLC Podcast for June, 2016. We are nanophysicist Mike Stopa and radio talk host Todd Feinburg, two conservatives of varying hues who get together each week to discuss, with imagined intelligence and thoughtfulness, to get caught up on politics. Find us online at harvardlunchclub.com and on twitter @hlcpodcast.
Here are our topics:
What’s Trump doing calling a Federal Judge from Indiana a “Mexican” for two weeks? Now, even Newt says it’s time to stop, but Trump argues it’s legitimate to suspect bias given his position on immigration, and he says a similar problem could exist with a Muslim judge.
For a couple of weeks, the name of David French, the conservative Tennessee businessman and veteran, has been tossed around as the Great Right Hope – the potential third party candidate for the NeverTrump crowd. But now he says he won’t run. What’s that leave for options – Stopa?
Is Donald Trump a fascist? The political correspondent at Slate Magazine said so in December, and now the subject has popped up again Trump supporters were violently attacked in San Jose. We explain why it’s ridiculous.
 
We’ll share our Shower Thoughts, and we honor Bob Dylan with our Hidden Gem, as Robert Zimmerman graduated high school this week in 1959. We hear Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.
