President Joe Biden heads overseas for a couple of global summits while Democrats in Congress continue to fight for his legislative agenda, even amongst themselves.

The former White House coronavirus response coordinator says 130,000 COVID-19 deaths in this country were unnecessary and that former President Donald Trump was distracted from the response by the 2020 election.

Meanwhile, some Republican lawmakers distance themselves from the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol following a scathing report.

The Political Junkie Ken Rudin joins Cincinnati Edition for the full hour to talk national politics. We will take your phone calls at 513-419-7100 or emails at

Also joining the program is Northern Kentucky University Associate Professor of Political Science Dr. Ryan Salzman.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
