Molly Ball on Primary Races and Trump Backing Off Deportation

Today on The Federalist Radio Hour, Molly Ball of The Atlantic talks this week’s political headlines with Mary Katharine Ham.


Molly Ball, politics writer at The Atlantic, joined Mary Katharine Ham on Federalist Radio to recap Tuesday night’s primary results, talk news of more deleted Hillary Clinton emails, Trump’s flip-flopping on immigration.

Later in the hour, they swapped back-to-school stories as summer comes to a close. “My first lunch box, which I’ve always been sort of proud of, was tin not plastic, and it was Gremlins,” Ham said.
