First, Dana talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his first CNN interview since the Israel-Hamas war began. Dana presses him on growing pressure for Israel to limit civilian casualties, the effort to free the hostages being held by Hamas, and his refusal to take responsibility for the October 7 attacks.
Then, with US President Joe Biden expressing frustration at Israel’s reluctance to implementing humanitarian pauses inside Gaza and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken saying more needed to be done to keep civilians safe, Dana speaks with US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan to discuss the shift from the US in its approach to its close ally Israel.
Next, Dana sits down with RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel to discuss her party’s disappointing election results and whether Republicans need to take a new approach to the abortion debate.
Finally, former Obama senior adviser David Axelrod and former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan join Dana to discuss a huge political week, including Sen. Joe Manchin’s announcement he won’t be seeking re-election in 2024, the possibility of a Trump/Biden rematch and how the third-party presidential lane could get crowded in 2024.
