Special Relationship: Highly Debatable

With one final presidential debate left to go, the hits keep on coming for Donald Trump.

The Republican nominee is now not only defending himself against accusations of prurient behavior towards women, but finds himself embroiled in a civil war with the top figures in his own party, just weeks away from the election.

This week, Celeste and John break down the latest in the race for president and look ahead at what could might come next with the help of Economist Washington Bureau Chief David Rennie and Mic Politics Editor Luke Brinker.

Our producer is Alan Haburchak.
