The Rundown-Tues 4/17: Sen Ron Johnson; Tax Day; Trump on econ

As Sean Hannity noted, the mainstream media went absolutely crazy when it came out in a hearing in federal court on Monday that one of President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen's other "clients" is Sean Hannity. However, Hannity vehemently asserts that He has never paid Cohen, that Cohen never represented him in any matter involving a third party, and that Sean thought their conversations were confidential. I take Hannity at his word, but I do believe that even if he had a small professional relationship with Cohen, he should have told his listeners and viewers that since he comments on Cohen, Mueller, Trump and related stories daily.

At 7:06 AM, we'll talk with Sen Ron Johnson (R-WI) about Syria, trade, taxes, Paul Ryan's retirement, and of course sock/shoe. https://www.ronjohnson.senate.gov/public/

At 8:06 AM, we'll be joined by Princeton economics professor Swati Bhatt to discuss the economics of the Internet, beginning the conversation with Senator Lindsey Graham's recent question to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as to whether Facebook is a monopoly. (I thought it was a moronic question.)

If you watch the first 15 minutes of President Trump's remarks in Hialeah, FL on Monday, you might think: "If somebody heard this speech and knew nothing else about Donald Trump, that person would think that this would be one of the most popular presidents ever." Trump needs to stop tweeting about what is effectively his ego, and those who bruise it, and get to things that appeal to the few remaining swing voters in this country. But he won't.
