Richard Conley says Trump can easily ruin his honeymoon with Congress. Bruce Springsteen says the very people he writes about are the ones getting shafted by Trump. And Bill Press interviews Congressman Raul Ruiz.

Professor Richard Conley, an expert on congressional and presidential relations, says Trump could be in for a rough honeymoon with Congress if he keeps villainizing people. The boss, Bruce Springsteen, tells podcaster Marc Maron that it is the people he writes about who are going to be the most negatively affected by a Trump presidency. And Bill Press talks with California Congressman Raul Ruiz about Obamacare and other topics.
