David Frum On Rebellion Against Leftist Monoculture And American Prosperity

David Frum joins The Federalist Radio Hour to weigh in on 2016 and comparing political environments then and now.


David Frum, senior editor at The Atlantic, joined The Federalist Radio Hour to discuss the dangers of a Putin-Trump relationship, how the TV industry’s left agendas hurt Clinton, and how politics of the 1970s have influenced our politics today.
