Ep 574

On this week's Curmudgeon's Corner podcast, the two big topics are Trump's pardons and the Economy. Specifically Sam and Ivan talk about the grand plan, or lack thereof, surrounding the pardons and what messages that sends. On the economy, the questions are how much credit Trump should get for good unemployment numbers, does it matter that he tweeted about those results before they came out, and what's up with the big trade war that seems to be getting started? Along the way, they also cover a health issue in Sam's family, the Puerto Rican death toll, a little on the Trump/Cohen investigations, and the general trend toward US isolation.
