BOTH SIDES NOW: MAY 21st, 2016

Stuart Stevens and Ron Reagan largely agree that Trump is a long-shot, a menace, and was enabled by Primary opponents who all thought someone else would take him on and down. Now, our panel urges the media to interrupt his river of falsehoods with sharp questions and real-time fact-checking. They doubt that a GOP still in the grip of birthers, xenophobes and climate deniers — and now stocked with Trump and Cruz delegates and members — will likely shift after a 5-10 point loss this Fall. Last, there’s again consensus that Sanders, a sincere liberal, would continue to bite Clinton’s ankle after she becomes the presumptive nominee June 7th…but that’s based on reason and not passion. Question: are Bernie’s fans a movement or a cult? Stay tuned.
