Episode: BOTH SIDES NOW: SEPTEMBER 17th, 2016

Both Sides Now Logo

This week, Rich Lowry & Wayne Barrett debate #deplorables & birtherism. Was Hillary’s comment a classic gaffe, impolitic yet true? Lowry says no because it’s untrue that half the GOP are not racists and nativists…which is why she apologized. Barrett doesn’t disagree. “While we can talk about the percentage, she should never confuse deplorable views with deplorable people.” But the Host argues that there indeed is a “Fringe Fourth” in the US, overwhelmingly for Trump, which thinks we should ban Muslims, Obama’s not an American & reverse racism worse than racism. The panel discusses whether Donald Houdini can get away with pretending to be the arsonist putting out the fire of Birther-ism with his 27 seconds saying “ne-ver mind.”  Also: four days of coverage on Hillary’s health and one on Trump’s birther reversal?

Ron Reagan & Mary Matalin look at the first Clinton-Trump Debate through the lens of their respective experiences with Reagan 40 and Bushs 41+43. Our collective judgment is that while Trump will beat very low “expectations” (as was true of Ron’s father in 1980), Clinton’s superior knowledge and experience will enable her to win the debate in the eyes of not the media but actual voters...

Both Sides Now > BOTH SIDES NOW: AUGUST 13th, 2016

Is Trump in a summer slump or death spiral? RShrum & RChristie agree that it’s slipping away because he’s both a boor and a bore — everything is insults + me/me/me. The panelists clash over whose eco plan is better — Ron says Bush43’s trickle down superior while Bob likes Hillary’s “middle-out” version...
