McKay Coppins, staff writer at The Atlantic and author of “The Wilderness,” joins Federalist Radio to discuss the healthcare fail by Paul Ryan and the GOP’s scramble to legislate. Coppins also shares about his interactions with Donald Trump and his profile of Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
“You can make just as much of a case against House leadership,” he said. “Sure, maybe [Paul Ryan] is a policy entrepreneur. He has popularized ideas within his party, but he is not a legislator. He doesn’t have a lot of experience actually translating those ideas into law.”
Coppins discusses Tucker Carlson’s “eviscerating” interviews, and makes the case that he is now one of the most powerful people in media. “Not only does he have one of the highest rated shows on cable news, he also counts President Trump as a loyal viewer,” he said.
