This week, Scott McKay and Brian Haldane talk to Jay Connaughton from Innovative Politics. Jay was a media adviser on the Trump campaign and gave the guys his take on what shaped the Donald Trump story in the election. The guys then shift the conversation form the election narrative to the shaping the narrative moving forward. More specifically, they ask Jay about how the President can keep his head above water in the media to do the job of creating jobs while there are going to be countless attacks to distract, discredit, or take down his presidency.
After talking about President Trump, the guys turn the focus to upcoming statewide races. Jay gives his take on what will shape the narrative in the Legislative races, and shares some thoughts on the Treasurer’s race. Jay gets pretty deep in his analysis of the scene as a whole, and even delves into one of Haldane’s favorite topics… rewriting the state’s constitution!
Before they’re done, the guys had some fun talking about the overwhelmingly horrid decision by the New Orleans Zephyrs to change their name to the Babycakes. Jay had some incredible insight and stories to share about, not only what happened, but what is still happening in that ongoing saga.
