"Good ethics doesn't mean good politics!"

David Bossie was Tucker's first guest. He talked first about how General Kelly has "put a stamp on his reign as White House Chief of Staff." Then he went on to talk about how three GOP Senators stopped the health care legislation from going to a House/Senate conference.

Charles Krauthammer was the next guest, and he agreed that this might be a turning point for the Trump presidency if Kelly truly stops the leaks and imposes order. He thought the real test might be to see if Kelly can impose some order on Trump himself! On health care, Charles observed the importance of the big donors and lobbyists paying off politicians.

The show continues to follow the story of how one sanctuary city, Portland, Oregon, has failed to protect its citizens.

The show also continues to follow the story of the Pakistani family that made $4 million as IT specialists for top Democratic politicians. Were there kickbacks? Some of them had side jobs at McDonalds. Why would you need to do that if you are making six figures for Congress people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz? Why was he attempting to flee the country? Why did they smash the hard drives of computers?

The next topic was the show's week long look at El Salvadoran gang MS-13, whom Trump and Sessions are trying to deport back to El Salvador.

Tucker's last guest was a psychology professor at Northeastern University named Lisa Feldman Barrett. She is making the case for censorship, not inviting speakers whose views she considers hateful. I thought she made a good point when she said guest speakers should be people who encourage debate. She said colleges should ban speakers who make anyone feel unsafe. Tucker was frustrated with her because of the way she answered or didn't answer his questions, which were, who decides what is hate speech and define a "reasonable" person.
