Debates & Mugshots | The Roundtable Ep. 185

Meanwhile, the GOP primary debate took place without Trump’s presence or wind in its sails, leading to many bemoaning it as auditions for VP. But the medium itself is showing its age and how little it serves voters. Plus: as splits and subdividing factions take over the Right, Americans should take note and react accordingly.
