Is Trump Snoozing on Iowa?

In This Episode

Trump shows up in Iowa to flip burgers before a football game, but his allies worry that photo-ops won’t be enough to win the Hawkeye State. Republicans in Wisconsin prepare to impeach a judge before she’s heard her first case, while their counterparts in DC lurch closer to forcing a government shutdown. Then, constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe talks to Lovett about why the 14th Amendment might bar Trump from serving another term, and Hallie Kiefer joins the guys to test out the latest in right-wing classroom propaganda.
