Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi discuss this week’s news and the latest outrages on this episode of Federalist Radio. Our hosts discuss Susan Rice’s unmasking, White House leaks, CNN’s war with Trump, the controversial Pepsi commercial, and whether men and women can be just friends.
Newsrooms have twisted themselves in knots in their attempts to connect Trump to Russia, and to ignore any stories from the Obama White House. “People are so terrified of being seen as pro-Trump, that they simply cannot be distracted from the narrative that there was collusion.” Harsanyi said.
Hans Fiene received major criticism after writing his piece arguing that men and women who are friends should exit the friend zone and get married.
“A lot people, I think, feel insecure about their own failures in relationships. Their failure to secure a wife or their failure to secure a husband,” Hemingway said. “And rather than just respond with a different perspective or engage, they feel like they are being judged, or that makes them nervous to think about their own male-female friendships.”
