Moderation in the Era of Trump

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, veteran columnist Mike Barnicle is joined by Peter Wehner from The New York Times to discuss the tone being set by the incoming Trump administration and the institutional checks and balances to guide against fanaticism in favor of moderation. Asks Barnicle: “Could you extend your definition of moderation, of moderates? Is it ideology? Is it rhetoric? Is it legislative proposals that might be made? … How does that impact a specifically hard block of ideologues, in the House especially?” Hear Wehner’s explanation of moderation here and why it’s so important for the new administration.
