It was a treat to talk to my friend, Robert A. George, about the political landscape washing over New York, Washington, and the rest of the country. Â We cover Donald Trump and his initial stumbles, the departure of Preet Bharara, the future of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and the re-election prospects of Mayor Bill DiBlasio among other topics. Â Lots of fun in the world of politics!
