Wow. Stockman, as usual, was terrific, but that this interview was on CNN and that they didn’t cut him off or quickly go to commercial when he was speaking the painful truth is astounding. Sure, he was negative on Trump, which CNN would love, but he also attacked the military/ industrial/security complex and the Fed and CNN actually aired it.
