Reaction to this week's political shocks, why many conservatives are choosing to double down on Trump critics, and then, a conversation on the growing dis-union in America.
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.
