David Cay Johnston on Why Trump Admin Is Worse Than We Think

David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author, joined Leslie Marshall last week to discuss his most recent NYT best seller, "It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America."

No working journalist knows Donald Trump better than David, who first met the forty-fifth president in 1988 and has tracked him ever since. Johnston chronicled much of Trump’s conduct in two books: Temples of Chance and the bestselling The Making of Donald Trump.

Even Super Good Times Sometimes Stop Rolling

India’s self-styled “King of the Good Times,” the Kingfisher beer and airline baron Vijay Mallya, seems to be in store for lots of not-so-good times. This past September, a local court ordered the sale of the super yacht Mallya had abandoned in Malta — complete with 40 crewmembers — after his arrest in London on fraud and money-laundering charges. Earlier this month, another court ruling awarded the abandoned crew almost $1 million in back pay. Mallya is now fighting extradition to India. The cells in India’s Mumbai Central Prison, he’s complained to British authorities, lack natural light. The 62-year-old is also tweeting regularly that he’s not getting “fair treatment” from politicians and the media. Mallya’s yacht, meanwhile, has begun a new life as a charter boat renting for $850,000 per week.
