Donald Trump's success reveals a frightening weakness in American democracy

Ezra Klein on the lesson of the 2016 presidential campaign: "A republic, if you can keep it." Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Donald Trump’s nearness to the presidency rests on two separate accomplishments — or, if you prefer, two separate institutional failures — that are often conflated. The first is his victory in the Republican Party’s presidential primaries. The second is his consolidation of elite Republicans, and of the Republican-leaning electorate. But it's important to zoom out, and make a structural analysis of what allowed these things to happen. And believe it or not, that’s where things get scary. For more...

Kellyanne Conway's interview tricks, explained

Kellyanne Conway has a supernatural ability to derail any interview that paints Donald Trump in a negative light. How does she do it? Follow Strikethrough on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/CarlosMazaVox/ Watching Conway do backflips to avoid answering simple questions is fascinating and occasionally entertaining, but it doesn’t provide viewers with useful information about what the Trump administration is doing or intends to do. And it should raise questions about what the purpose of interviewing an administration official actually is.

Ezra Klein: 100 days of Trump’s flailing presidency

Governing is not a reality tv show. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO What we’re learning, day by day, is there’s no magic to Trump. When he does things people hate, he becomes unpopular. When he backs bad legislation and bad processes, the bills fail. When he doesn’t prioritize staffing his government, his government doesn’t get staffed. When he doesn’t choose aides who know how to manage a presidency, his presidency careens forward unmanaged. When he doesn’t spend time learning about the policies he backs, he’s unable to persuade the American people of their benefits. When he doesn’t build deep relationships with...

The military coup in Zimbabwe, explained

Why the Zimbabwe coup is not a revolution. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO On November 14th 2017, Zimbabwe military troops drove tanks into the capital city, Harare. They patrolled the streets, blocked access to government buildings, and took over the state television station to insist…. This is not a military takeover of government. Once praised as a war hero, Robert Mugabe helped Zimbabwe win independence from Great Britain in 1980. He became president under Zimbabwe’s new constitution with the support of the people. But soon, he digressed into a repressive dictator. He secured his power through aggression and threats, there have been reports...

Why Donald Trump can't become "moderate"

How a 1990 Playboy interview exposes Trump's biggest weakness. Ezra Klein explains. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Of late, the media has become convinced that Donald Trump is going to reinvent himself as a sensible moderate as he transitions to becoming a general election candidate. "When I'm president, I'm a different person," he told a crowd back in January. "I can be the most politically correct person you've ever seen." No, he can't. In 1990, Donald Trump gave an interview to Playboy magazine. Read today, it stands as an astonishing testament to Trump's consistency. Nearly every sentence of it is something Trump could...

How to impeach a president

What we can learn from Reconstruction, Watergate, and the Clinton saga. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO [2:31] CORRECTION: A previous version of this video misstated the year of Andrew Johnson's impeachment. He was impeached in 1868, not 1863. The founding fathers included impeachment in the constitution so that Congress would have a way to remove leaders who had "rendered themselves obnoxious," in the words of Benjamin Franklin. But the way they set up the process, it's nearly impossible to remove a president from office without substantial support from the president's own party. That's what happened during Watergate: some congressional republicans protected Richard...

Some in Silicon Valley are even calling for a basic minimum income provided by the government for everyone, under the assumption that work will become scarce. But many economists are skeptical of these claims, because the notion that the the economy offers a fixed amount of work has been debunked time and time again over the centuries and current economic data show no signs of a productivity...

Proof of evolution that you can find on your body

You have your mom's smile, your dad's eyes, and the ear muscles of a Triassic mammal. Forty-two percent of Americans say that humans were created in their present form within the past 10,000 years — a percentage that hasn't changed much since 1982, when Gallup started polling views on evolution. Several lines of evidence, from the fossil record, comparative anatomy, and genetics, tell another story. But you don't have to read all the research to find signs of our evolutionary history — you can see it in the vestigial structures in each of our bodies, like the third molars that no longer...
