Trump Pushes With Third Version of Travel Ban

Donald Trump has issued a third version of his travel ban, aka Muslim ban. This time he has left Iraq and Sudan off the list and included North Korea, Venezuela, and inexplicably, Chad. We’ll turn to Sirine Shebaya, senior staff attorney at Muslim Advocates about this latest development and what it means. Then, Trump’s tirade against the free speech rights of NFL players seems to have united many Americans – against him. We’ll speak with our correspondent Courtney Morris about what it means when a President attacks a peaceful form of protest. Finally author and humor writer Danny Katch joins us to discuss his new book, Why Bad Governments Happen to Good People.
