August 13, 2016: Tomasky on Trump’s Meltdown; Locked-up Asylum Seekers on Hunger Strike; The Green Party

This week, we welcome Daily Beast columnist Mike Tomasky back to the show to talk about how low Trump might go. 

Then we're joined by Adanjesus Marin, director of Make the Road PA, who will tell us about a group of mothers who fled violence for asylum in the U.S., only to find themselves pointlessly detained with their children in a for-profit facility in Pennsylvania.


Finally, we'll speak with Truthout's Candice Bernd, who attended the Green Party's annual meeting in Texas last weekend.
