Biden's Gaza Shame & Can Someone Else Pay Trump's Tab? - Irishman In America With Marion McKeone
Unflappable. That’s one word to describe Donald Trump. In the face of being ordered to pay almost a half a billion dollars by the courts he seems unperturbed. Why? Does Marion know something we don’t know about how he plans to pay this money back? As she explains, there is no wriggling out of this one. Meanwhile rubble is being bombed in Gaza and the last remaining people fleeing the conflict pray for an end has Biden forgotten how powerful he is or wussed out? A piece in the Guardian this week has sparked a conversation around the perplexing actions of the President and how weak and heartless it is starting to make him and his foreign policy advisors look. In the final part of our episode Marion examines Liz Truss’ performance at CPAC and the company she now keeps, Nikki Hayley’s attempts to cobble together some funds to keep going, Tucker’s Russian fever dream and more.
