Episode 716: News Dump Mostly Trump

This week on Ring of Fire!

Former Vice President Mike Pence announced over the weekend that he was ending his presidential campaign (actually, "suspending" it) after it became crystal clear that he has no path to the nomination. This frees up a small percentage of Republican votes that will now go to other candidates, and it could be enough of a bounce to give another candidate some much-needed momentum as the Iowa caucuses rapidly approach.

Judge Tanya Chutkan set another trap for Donald Trump this week, leaving the decision up to him as to whether or not his trial is televised. Trump now has to issue a statement to the judge telling her why or why not the trial should be viewed by the public - and there's no good answer for the former President.

Donald Trump went ballistic on Judge Arthur Engoron following his Friday ruling that Ivanka Trump had to testify in the ongoing New York fraud trial. Trump attacked the judge on social media, claiming that he is a "nut job" for forcing his daughter to testify, and that's not the kind of thing you should say about the man that holds yours and your company's fate in his hands alone. And that's not the only meltdown that Trump suffered this week.

All of that, and much more, on this week's Ring of Fire!
