We dive into the week's news with our panelists. First, we talk about the state of the Democratic Party in the wake of Donald Trump's upset victory last week and Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan's challenge to Nancy Pelosi. Then, we talk about the third of voters in Massachusetts who voted for Trump and if Massachusetts is becoming more Republican. We'll also touch on Trump's early administration picks that were released this week and the scourge of fake news that has taken over social media.
