Podcast for America is your inside look at the creeping fascism of this presidential campaign cycle. Your hosts are Annie Lowrey of New York magazine, Alex Wagner of MSNBC, and Mark Leibovich, national correspondent for the New York Times Magazine.

This week, the Washington Post’s David Weigel joins us to talk about Donald Trump and how other Republican presidential candidates might respond (or have responded) to his proposal to ban Muslims in the United States.

We’ll also contemplate the ways other Republican candidates like Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, or even Chris Christie could finally out-poll Trump.

And we wrap up by reflecting on President Obama’s address about terrorism.
