From day one, it was clear that Donald Trump was like no president this country had ever seen. Eight months into his term, we talk to Harvard Law professor Jack Goldsmith about the lasting impact Trump may have on the presidency, itself.

Fifteen years ago, the U.S. was declared measles-free thanks to a vaccine developed in the 1960s. But last year, there were more than 600 new measles cases, the highest number in a quarter century. And a measles outbreak that began in Disneyland last month has now infected more than 80 people in seven states. Health officials say most of those who got sick were not vaccinated. Parents opting out of vaccines for their children say they are afraid of harmful side effects, especially autism. But most doctors continue to stress that the vaccines are completely safe. Diane and guests discuss a surge in measles cases, the anti-vaccine movement and implications for public health nationwide.
