Listen to Represent:

When Donald Trump chatted with three Reuters reporters in April, he handed each of them a map memorializing his win over Hillary Clinton. “It’s pretty good, right?” the president asked before adding, “The red is obviously us.” This was not an outlier. Trump also bragged about his election victory at a Republican Party retreat in Philadelphia days after the inauguration, during an appearance with the president of Romania, and in response to a question about anti-Semitism.

David Frum is a senior editor at the Atlantic and the author of the new book Trumpocracy: The Corruption of the American Republic. He sits down with Isaac Chotiner to discuss the state of democracy after a year of Trump, why the president’s buffoonery doesn’t make him less dangerous, and his own journey from neocon to Trump critic.

Welcome to Slate’s weekly news quiz. It’s Friday, which means it’s time to test your knowledge of the week’s news events. Your host, Ray Hamel, has concocted questions on news topics ranging from politics to business, from culture to sports to science.

In 1898, voters in Wilmington, North Carolina, elected a biracial city council. Two days later, a white supremacist uprising threw out the local government and expelled black leaders from the city.

Prudence is joined this week by Charlotte Shane, author, essayist, and co-founder of TigerBee Press. First up: My sister keeps comparing my desire to have a child with adopting a cat. How do I handle attending friends’ engagement parties and weddings when I am still single and not feeling the festive spirit? I’ve been having an affair with a famous person for years, but do I need to alter my expectations? And finally, my wife got a great job in a distant city, but the kids and I don’t want to leave—are we jerks?
