I am hearing a lot about the Fast and Furious scandal, what is the Fast and Furious scandal?
DML: In short, it’s another botched initiative during Obama’s time in office. Expanding on the explanation, but without getting into too much detail, it was a lame attempt to capture cartel members. Gun-buyers, many of whom the feds suspected were drug runners and criminals, were given safe passage to take guns purchased in the U.S. and take them back into Mexico without interference from U.S. officials. The plan was that once the guns were sold to the drug cartels, the ATF would later trace the guns. Whistleblowers and investigators, however, found no attempt to trace the guns.
Hearing the FBI did a raid on offices of GOP consulting firm in Maryland? Any truth to this?
DML: Yes. It is true. Click here for our story on the raid.
You made a comment on the Walk & Talk yesterday which is the most brilliant comment I’ve heard this week. Harlan was bringing up how Trump is no longer as aggressive as he was on the campaign trail, and then you said, “Trump isn’t playing to win. He is playing not to lose.” You are so right DML! He has to play to win.
As you said it best, “Playing not to lose gains no yardage.”
What does Trump have to do to play to win?
Keep up the AMAZING work. You are the best in the business. You are funny, insightful, always thinking, always working, always honest, and never biased to the point of where I feel I’m being shortchanged the facts. — PD
DML: He needs some new blood in the White House. People who are fresh. People who will inspire him to do more than just go through the motions. Remember, Trump is an older man. He’s been running hard for two years now. Mentally and physically it takes a toll on a person. He needs a shot of adrenaline (not literally). He’s a momentum player. Right now, there’s no measurable momentum in my opinion. Good news is it all but takes one event to change it up. Or perhaps, one new person at his side. (hint, hint)
