Episode #113: “Extreme vetting, AB2844, eat my Schwartz.”

Join us for a special A.M. recording of (Is it) Good for the Jews! Morning sun streams into the Twilight Lounge as the boys settle in to discuss the validity of The King of Real Estate’s college mascot and Rosen’s recent misadventures with Budget Rent-a-Car, then segue into a celebration of the book. “Eat My Schwartz.” California bill AB2844 is then debated, setting the stage for this week’s main topic:

Is “extreme vetting” good for the Jews?

On August 15, presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested that all potential immigrants to the U.S. be screened for anti-semitic, racist and homophobic tendencies. Is this proposal ethical?  Is it even plausible? Does Trump believe himself, or is he just pandering? The Twilight Lounge is your place for keen analysis of this and other pressing issues. And nurse parties.
