A new study reveals Americans know little about their own history, and our own Jarrett Stepman joins us to discuss the implications—and how to fix it. Plus: Sen. Rand Paul. R-Ky., warns that when it comes to our political climate, the worst may be yet to come.

We also cover these stories:

  • Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida Wednesday, with winds of 155 miles per hour. President Donald Trump said his message to those in Florida was “God bless you all.”
  • Trump went on full attack against Sen. Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All” plan, saying it would gut Medicare and would “outlaw private health care plans, taking away freedom to choose plans while letting anyone cross our border.”

  • Anthony Weiner, the former New York congressman, will be released from prison early on account of “good conduct,” according to the Bureau of Prisons.
