    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton reminded voters last weekend why they are the least popular candidates in modern history. And the New York Times reaffirmed that point, reporting that only 9 percent of the country actually voted for them in the Primary. We hash things out at the top of the show.

    Then, global warming is already affecting Washington DC in demonstrable ways. DCist Associate Editor Rachel Kurzius joins to discuss our rapidly growing “Mosquito Seasons,” the freak rainstorm in Ellicott City, Md. that killed two people, and sweltering conditions inside of DC jails.

    Finally, corporate lobbyists are pushing President Obama’s Net Neutrality initiative closer to the Supreme Court. And although the withdrawal timetable keeps getting pushed back and although 2016 seems to be driving everyone mad, the Pentagon isn’t keen on drumming up the threat of Daesh in Afghanistan. Nice!
