Political Junkie: Turmoil In The White House

The Political Junkie is turning his analytical gaze west. Ken Rudin, known to NPR listeners from his many years talking all things politics with Neal Conan on "Talk of the Nation," joins Insight host Beth Ruyak for our signature segment that puts California politics in the context of the national scene. Rudin joins us from Washington D.C. in an effort to put it all in perspective.
Today we look back at a tumultuous week in Washington: Reince Priebus is out and John Kelly is in as White House Chief of Staff; Anthony Scaramucci makes a big splashy entrance; Attorney General Jeff Sessions is under pressure to quit; Russia responds to new sanctions; and Senator John McCain surprises the GOP by voting against a "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act.
