  1. I wasn’t looking forward to living in the Soviet Union. Lol
    I love Mark Blyth

  2. No, Mark, we desperately want Trump to testify, specifically for the reason you stated.

  3. Why is this not trending?! This seems super important

  4. God, Carrie's voice is so perfect.

  5. I have a question for Mark Blyth. With 3.5 million baby boomers retiring a year. 2 million jobs hiring a year. 1 million immigrants coming in to the country a year. With the Trump administration scaring off the immigrants. Could a shrinking job force lead to inflation a few years down the road.
