Maggie Haberman Makes Sense of Donald Trump

Donald Trump has said journalist Maggie Haberman is like his ?psychiatrist? ? a remark she dismisses as a meaningless and failed attempt at flattery. Yet Haberman does have a deep understanding of what makes the former president tick, cultivated through years of covering City Hall in New York City and then Donald J. Trump for The New York Times. Her recent book, ?Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,? tells Trump?s origin story and chronicles his unexpected takeover of the Republican party and his consolidation of power in Washington. ?He?s not a political genius,? Haberman tells Kara, ?he is a genius about human emotions and a certain darkness in what animates people.? So will Trump run again in 2024? Haberman says that ?he?s backed himself into a corner where he has to,? but she?s not sure whether she'll be covering him. Before the interview, Kara and Nayeema talk about the newsmakers: Elon Musk?s about-face on the Twitter deal and Peter Thiel?s financing foray into key Senate races and ... a conservative dating app. You can find Kara and Nayeema on Twitter @karaswisher and @nayeema.  Learn more about your ad choices.

So ... Should We Ban TikTok?

Kara loves air fryer TikToks. But she only dares to scroll through them on a burner phone, as she tells TikTok?s Chief Operating Officer, Vanessa Pappas.  As the social media platform has gone gangbusters ? accumulating over a billion monthly users globally ? concerns have emerged about TikTok?s ownership structure and roots in China. The U.S. government has questions about what data the app is amassing, whether that data can be accessed by the Chinese Communist Party and if the platform is a tool for espionage or foreign interference and propaganda. Kara has those questions too. And she asks Pappas all of them. Before the interview, Kara and Nayeema talk about the newsmakers of the day. They scan through the Elon Musk text messages released in the Twitter-Musk proceedings and explore what the texts reveal about Silicon Valley?s powerful elite ? including Twitter founder Jack Dorsey. They also discuss recent layoffs at Meta ? and how Mark Zuckerberg will navigate the company?s recent struggles without his former right-hand exec, Sheryl Sandberg.  You can find Kara and Nayeema on Twitter @karaswisher and @nayeema.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Hillary Clinton Lets Loose with Predictions

This is Kara?s 5th interview with Hillary Clinton. So what?s changed since their first conversation in 2015? According to Kara, it?s that the former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic nominee for President has ?run out of f***s." In this conversation, taped live at The Texas Tribune Festival, Kara notes that many of Clinton?s past predictions about Donald Trump have come through and asks what may unfold if Trump runs again in 2024. They discuss Hillary?s role in the Democratic Party, and the upcoming midterms. And they talk about the emails (again), with Kara laying out one conservative narrative that seeks to equate Clinton?s emails with the documents Trump stashed away at Mar-a-Lago. As Hillary puts it: ?I have testified for 11 hours. I would love to see Donald Trump testify for 30 minutes in public about any of this.? Before the interview, Kara and Nayeema talk about newsmakers ? from Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell?s decision to back a bill that would overhaul how Congress counts electoral votes to Giorgia Meloni?s win in Italy. They also run down things they?ve found despicable, delightful ? or both ? this week. Plus, Kara gives some advice. This time: it?s solicited.  Do you want Kara?s advice? Send us your questions!

Chris Cuomo?s Comeback

Kara Swisher is back ? and so, it seems, is Chris Cuomo. In an interview that is frank and feisty, Kara presses the former CNN anchor on his unceremonious exit from the network last year, and they discuss whether he can cut through the noise with his new podcast, ?The Chris Cuomo Project,? and a forthcoming show on NewsNation. But first, Kara and her sidekick, exec producer Nayeema Raza, the ?Goose to her Maverick? (and yes, Goose eventually died in Top Gun) chat about the newsmakers and news Kara is watching ? from Google CEO Sundar Pichai to journalist Christiane Amanpour. Kara also weighs in on the drama around the cartoon strip, Dilbert. And, finally, she offers some unsolicited advice about covering celebrity sext scandals.  Do you want Kara?s (solicited) advice? Send us your questions! Call 1-888-KARA-PLZ and leave a message.  You can find Kara on Twitter @karaswisher. Nayeema is there too ? for now ? @nayeema. Learn more about your ad choices.
