President Trump, Male Insecurity, And His New Status As "Individual 1"

Dec 3, 2018

New York University researchers say they've found a link between appeal for President Trump and a certain, specific segment of the male population: those with "fragile masculinity."

Their research is based on Google searches for "erectile dysfunction," "hair loss," "Viagra," and some other words we may refrain from mentioning.

But first this hour, we catch up on the latest revelations coming out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

They include former longtime Trump attorney and fixer Michael Cohen's admission that he misled Congress about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

Now that federal investigators are labeling Trump as "Individual 1," what may come next?

And what's to make of the president's penchant for a mob-like rhetoric that casts those around him as either "loyal" or "weak"? We discuss that too.
