Donald Trump's political success has been partially attributed to his ability to reach the public directly through his Tweets, bypassing gatekeepers in the media etc. This reminded me of the "fireside chats" that FDR delivered by radio during his presidency. What do you think? Was FDR the predecessor to Donald Trump for connecting with voters directly or was FDR more closely related with modern political podcast hosts such as yourselves while Trump was merely Commander in Chief of the Internet Trolls?
In a lot of recent episodes Lina Khan has been mentioned as a government official who displays productive energy and initiative. Last week Christine Wilson submitted an op-ed to the WSJ about why she is resigning as an FTC Commissioner. What do you think about Wilson's criticism that Khan has disregarded the rule of law and due process in her role as FTC chairman? More broadly, do you think action-oriented politicians/bureaucrats should be wary of "moving fast and breaking things" because there are certain things public servants should be expected not to break?
