The aide to Donald Trump’s White House Chief of Staff opens up to Americast about her mistakes and why she believes that the former president should never be allowed near the Oval Office again.
Cassidy Hutchinson explains why she wrote her candid memoir, which Trump’s team tells us “either belongs in the discount bin of the fiction section of a bookstore or should be repurposed as toilet paper.”
There’s finally a new Speaker of the House of Representatives. But who is Mike Johnson?
And Arnold Schwarzenegger tells Justin why he thinks Trump’s re-election hopes have terminated.
Please note there is a brief suicide reference between 8:35 and 9:15.
