This week, the Guys start off by talking about how the incoming Trump administration is coming along. While things looked a little rocky at first, once Mike Pence took over from ousted transition chair Chris Christie things began to go more smoothly. As expected, liberals are not at all happy with Trump’s initial choices for his administration, with the selection of Steve Bannon as chief political strategist being the pick that has people most up in arms. Mike and Jay review all the picks and talk about the speculation surrounding some of the next big administration nominations. They also discuss possibilities for financial conflicts of interest and nepotism in a Trump administration.
After that, it’s a look at how the Democrats are coping with their loss, and where they go from here. They focus on the upcoming selections for Democratic National Committee chair, which pits Howard Dean against newcomer Keith Ellison, and the House Minority Leader position, where longtime leader Nancy Pelosi is facing a challenge from Rust Belt Democrat Tim Ryan.
