“You’ll know your president is lying if his lips move,” Blum concluded. “The world will end, or it won’t. I’ll be batting .500 on this one, either way.”
However, in Thursday’s discussion, Blum expressed optimism about combating the regressive politics that seem inevitable in 2017. He argued that people have the power to band together to influence their legislators and spur them to action.
The conversation also focused on the Electoral College, Supreme Court nominations and the role of executive actions in a Trump administration.
