Why 2018 Is Gonna Be A Long Year If You Hate Donald Trump

If your politics lean left, your trusted pundits are telling you THIS. IS. THE. YEAR. when our disastrous political situation will turn itself around. "Robert Mueller's closing in on Trump! The American people are starting to wise up! A midterm election Blue Wave(TM) will #Resist the #NotMyPresident into #DrumpfDefeat!" Well what if we told you none of that will happen without a herculean effort on the part of America's decent people? What if we told you none of this will get fixed soon? And what if we reminded you those same pundits who think everything's about to be fine literally laughed at the prospect of a Trump presidency not that long ago?

On this week's episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is joined by comedian/soothsayer Adam Tod Brown (Unpopular Opinion Podcast Network) for a deep dive into the history, technology, and basic math that proves we are nowhere near getting out of the woods yet. They'll look ahead to what might actually happen by the end of this midterm-riffic year of politics. And they'll help us all preserve our mental health by setting reasonable expectations, instead of assuming we'll be saved by the total nonsense hopes of pundits on TV.
