The meeting between President Trump and President Vladimir Putin of Russia has drawn bipartisan criticism. Ross Reynolds talks to our panel about what Trump's refusal to condemn Russian actions means and the timing of the indictments of the 12 Russian military officers.

We also talk about if President Trump is emboldening groups like the "Proud Boys" in the Northwest, and how important the outcry actually was over Scarlett Johansson playing a transgender man.

Our panelists were Mellina White Cusack, blogger at "The Seattle Conservative," and Eli Sanders, associate editor at The Stranger.
