Today's hot topics: Swift justice, North Korea fireworks, Trump-McConnell feud, the fading art of the political deal, abandoning truth, and more!

Today on The Ed Morrissey Show (4 pm ET), we have another great lineup for the news of the day! The show will be streamed on Hot Air’s Facebook page and embedded here and on the show page for those who are not on Facebook. (If it’s muted, right-click the video and choose Unmute.)

Join us as we welcome:

  • Duane “Generalissimo” Patterson brings us up to date on the week’s top stories and gives us a preview of tomorrow’s Hugh Hewitt show.
  • Is Donald Trump a master of the art of the political deal? Jill Lawrence argued earlier this year that Trump is a “nightmare negotiating partner,” and USA Today’s commentary editor expanded on those thoughts in her book The Art of the Political Deal. We’ll discuss both on her first appearance on TEMS.
  • Does the abandonment of truth have consequences? Dr. Everett Piper argues yes in his new book Not a Day Carearguing that Americans have gone from “Give me liberty, or give me death!” to “Take care of me, please.” Moral and philosophical relativism have wreaked havoc on American culture, and Dr. Piper will discuss what can redeem us.

The Ed Morrissey Show and its dynamic chatroom can be seen on the permanent TEMS page. Be sure to join us, and don’t forget to keep up with the debate on my Facebook page, too!
