Post-midterm shakeup

Listen 49:01

Guests: Anita Kumar, Nicholas Fandos, Kelly McBride

President Trump was in a foul mood this week, according to several accounts. With the midterm losses sinking in, the impending investigations that the Democrat-controlled House will launch, the Mueller probe still ongoing, bad PR from his Paris trip, and internal White House power squabbles, this should come as no surprise. This hour we’ll talk about the Trump’s bad week, dysfunction in the White House, what Democratic oversight in the House will mean for Trump, the Mueller investigation and more with ANITA KUMAR, White House correspondent for McClatchy News and NICHOLAS FANDOS, congressional reporter for The New York Times. But first, we’ll talk about the ruling on CNN’s lawsuit against President Trump to restore White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass. KELLY McBRIDE, senior vice president at The Poynter Institute, joins us.
