Imani Gandy on impeachment | Study finds that insecure men are drawn to right-wing politics

This week, we kick things off with Republicans in disarray, as the vestigial traditionalists struggle to prevent Marjorie Taylor Greene from becoming the leader of their party. 

Then we're joined by Rewire News Group's Imani Gandy to talk about the second impeachment of Donald Trump and the unusual feeling that Democrats have learned from recent years that they can't let Republicans bog down their agenda. 

And finally, we welcome Eric Knowles, a social psychologist at NYU, to talk about a recent study he co-authored which found that men who are insecure about their masculinity tend to be drawn to performatively tough politicians like Donald Trump and to favor "aggressive" public policies. This is one of those studies that confirms what we all know intuitively!
