Is it a good movie?

We were going to debate what the first 500 days of the Trump presidency meant to us, but we already know the answer to that. It’s annoying, relentless, and busy.

So instead we debated (500) Days of Summer. We all agreed it wasn’t busy, being an extremely well-directed movie, but it sure as hell had some bad ideas about romance. It doesn’t hold up well, but hopefully, history is more kind to this politics podcast.

Elsewhere, the gang talks net neutrality, fake Eagles fans, Trump’s Spygate tweetstorm, Environmental Protection Agency lead Scott Pruitt’s weird and possibly unethical requests, and the glorious return of Melania Trump.
