Senior editors at the Federalist, David Harsanyi and Mollie Hemingway, hosted today’s Federalist Radio Hour. They discussed how the Connecticut Governor plans to deny citizens their constitutional rights without due process, how Donald Trump has imploded the Republican party, and the new book edited by Jonathan Last, The Christmas Virtues.  

“Will Connecticut have to change their state name from the “constitution state” since they obviously don’t care about the constitution?” Hemingway asked after explaining the breaking news of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy’s announcement to sign an executive order prohibiting those on government watch lists from buying guns.

Later in the hour Hemingway explained why she admires Trump, why she hates Trump, and why she hates how the media covers Trump. “The media flip out beyond belief over everything he says,” she said. Harsanyi said he thinks the media loves Trump because it forwards a proposition they have. “It goes like this: Trump is like Hitler. Republicans secretly agree with Trump. Republicans are like Hitler,” he said.
