Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on May 13, 2017 in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon sat down for his first big interview since leaving the Trump administration. Bannon’s list of talking points on CBS’ “60 Minutes” Sunday included the removal of Confederate monuments, his continued support of President Trump’s agenda and the president’s “enemies.”

One of those enemies, Trump’s former opponent Hillary Clinton, was also on TV over the weekend. She gave her first interview about her new book “What Happened” to CBS Sunday Morning.

We get a reaction to those conversations from Bob Garfield, co-host of WYNC’s long-running “On The Media,” who has been thinking a lot about American identity in preparation for his one-man show, “Ruggedly Jewish.”

Guests

  • Bob Garfield Co-host of 'On the Media' from WNYC and 'The Genius Dialogues' from Audible. From 1986 to 1999, Bob was a roving correspondent for NPR's 'All Things Considered'
