No one joins Jonah for the latest Remnant, which he compensates for by being extra discursive and dyspeptic about the news (Supreme Court, Democrat overreaction) and pop culture (Ocean’s 8, Incredibles 2) of the day.
Jonah invites Cato Institute legal scholar Ilya Shapiro back on to The Remnant for some rank legal punditry: a rundown of the cases the Supreme Court decided this term and speculation about what happens to the Court now that Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring.
Political strategist, erstwhile academic, and friend of NR Luke Thompson joins The Remnant for a discursive discussion of the fine art of campaign consulting, the ins and outs of U.S. history, and the future of the Republican Party.
This week’s Remnant reunites Jonah with his fellow goatee-sporting journalist Steve Hayes, the editor-in-chief of the Weekly Standard. Jonah tries to keep the chicken wings and cheese curds away from Steve long enough for them to talk about the state of the Republican Party, Charles Krauthammer, and . . . fraternity pledging?
Can the president pardon himself? Are cakes free speech? What is the tonnage clause? Jonah invites Ilya Shapiro, Cato Institute senior fellow in constitutional studies, onto the Remnant to answer these and other legal questions.
Enjoying a brief respite from his book tour, Jonah takes time to memorialize his larger-than-life father-in-law, address critics of Suicide of the West (buy now!), and engage in some rank punditry on Mueller, China, and North Korea.
