In this episode (recorded 6/14/17), Atief and Scott welcome Robert back from his vacation in Canada and catch him up on the news—and in particular on former FBI Director James Comey’s congressional testimony—while he was gone. Next they talk about the apparent rise in political violence in the US. Then they consider various models for understanding and forecasting the Trump administration. They close the episode by considering the COVFEFE Act and the significance of President Trump’s twitter account.
