New York Times political columnist and frequent commentator for NPR's All Things Considered David Brooks sat down with BPR's Jeremy Loeb for a discussion about the state of our country and media during the Trump presidency.  

Brooks answered a range of questions about Trump, including his stability and his attacks on the media (including the New York Times).  He also discussed the media in general, the state of the Republican party and much more during the twenty minute conversation.  Two of Brooks' recent columns were discussed:  The Philosophical Assault on Trumpism and Guns and the Soul of America.
