A Hack in Hog Heaven and Trump’s Tempestuous Trip

A Hack in Hog Heaven and Trump’s Tempestuous Trip

Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy - August 27, 2019 - 46:56

Axe is back from his stint in the cornfields of Iowa armed with new intel to break down with Murphy. But first – the hacks talk Trump’s erratic behavior at the G7 summit, size up Trump’s new primary challenge from former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh, pose a theory as to why the governors in the Democratic race have yet to break through, and unpack Axe’s Iowa interviews with the leading presidential candidates. The hacks later dive into the mailbag and answer listener questions on Democratic strategy, to what extent early national polls really matter, and which brews the hacks themselves take on tap.
