Guest host Ana Kasparian talks with author and political journalist Edward McClelland about Current contributor and BuzzFeed correspondent Michael Hastings’ run-in with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “You could be the latest member of a support group called ‘Rahm Emanuel bullied me,’” McClelland tells Hastings. He adds that Emanuel is often compared with Lyndon Johnson. He says that LBJ had a reputation of bullying, that he used profanity strategically and also as a bullying tactic. McClelland points out, “When you’re in a position like Rahm Emanuel is and you swear at somebody, but they can’t swear at you, it’s just a way of letting people know who’s in charge.”
