Is SCOTUS Too Powerful?

Author David A. Kaplan warns that the Supreme Court is becoming increasingly polarized — and influential: "Why should nine unelected, unaccountable judges dictate so much policy in the country?" We'll also talk about what Trump's two appointees – Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh – mean for the future of the court. Kaplan's book is 'The Most Dangerous Branch.'

Also, Ken Tucker reviews Kurt Vile's new album, 'Bottle It In.'
