    Lee and Garland discuss future Trump/Macron negotiations taking place in France as Trump celebrates Bastille Day in Paris. GOP senators are giving a healthcare bill another shot, but disagreements in the Republican Party remain. Lee and Garland praise the Washington Post for giving Radio Sputnik a fair shake in an article they posted.

    President Trump is in France, negotiating with French President Macron and helping him celebrate Bastille Day. Both men have shaken the political foundations of their country, but will they discover that power isn't all that money buys? Lee and Garland will discuss it in round one.

    In round two, the Senate is making another try at a healthcare bill but the fundamental problems with the split between moderate and "straight repeal" Republicans remain. Trump says he'll be angry if the Senate does not deliver a repeal bill, but will Congress be able to deliver a bill that can pass?

    In the third round, Lee and Garland actually praise the Washington Post for doing a fair story on Radio Sputnik, but tell a cautionary tale that shows the real power lies with the editors, not the reporters. Can you trust the media?

    All that and more in today's episode of Fault Lines with Nixon and Stranahan.
