He began as a teenage political commentator – he got his start in this business 15 years ago – and has written many books on many different political topics, some of which he wrote even before he attended Harvard Law.

Today we discuss how Donald Trump won the Republican Primary, where the Republican Party will go if Donald Trump loses, and what will happen to Breitbart after the election.

“Bullying works better in politics and in life than I think it should.” – Bill Kristol
Bill Kristol is the editor of the Weekly Standard, and I sat down with him in his D.C. office to chat about why he isn’t supporting Trump, what will happen to the GOP after the election, and how the media has covered this race.

Rick Wilson is a Never-Trumper, and now the Campaign Strategist for Evan McMullin’s Presidential bid.

Matt’s book Too Dumb to Fail, was written pre-Trump nomination, and sets the bar for explaining where the Republican party stands. This book hits the nail on the head on the state of the Republican party and of the Conservative Movement.
