Shields and Brooks on the Trump White House

This is from July 21 but it’s still relevant. Mark Shields is a moderate liberal and David Brooks is a moderate conservative, which means among other things that they can talk to each other without yelling. I have my disagreements with both, sometimes strong ones, but I still find what they have to say at least interesting.

Here they talk about several things, including Senator John McCain and recent events the White House, and despite their political differences they pretty much agree with each other. They speak with respect for people they disagree with — albeit with one exception — but they they do so bluntly and honestly. I’d like to see more discussions like this from sober moderates.
