‘Meet the Press’ Episode Guide (Oct. 11): Sen. Bernie Sanders; Chaos in the House

“Meet the Press” (10/11/15) – Rep. Charlie Dent joins Chuck to discuss the chaos in the House and how his Republicans are strategizing around the Speaker race, which was upended on Thursday with an abrupt exit from House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

“Well it’s pretty obvious what happened. The same members who wanted to take down John Boehner, I always said, would try to frag the next guy. Well, they just fragged Kevin McCarthy.” – Dent on MSNBC Thursday

Sunday Exclusive Interview: Rep Dave Brat (R-VA) – Rep. Dave Brat, the man who topped former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and rode into Congress on a wave of Tea Party support, talks with Chuck about how House Republicans are reacting to Rep. McCarthy’s decision.

“It seems to me our group is putting up somebody who’s principled and could work with both sides, be fair to both sides.” – Brat, a member of the Freedom Caucus, on its support for Rep. Webster for Speaker

One-on-One with Presidential Candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) – With his first presidential debate this Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) joins Chuck in-studio to discuss his stance on trade, employment, the United States’ role in Syria, his fellow 2016 contender Hillary Clinton, and who he would name as a running mate.

“There are more than a few Republicans for Bernie Sanders out there.” – Sanders on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” this week

This Week in Politics – Will Paul Ryan succumb to the mounting pressure for him to be House Speaker? Will Clinton’s TPP reversal hurt her in the long-term? What can we expect from Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate? The roundtable discusses all of this and more.

This week’s political roundtable panel includes Hugh Hewitt, Host, “The Hugh Hewitt Show”; Nathan L. Gonzalez, Editor & Publisher, The Rothenberg & Gonzalez Political Report; Kathleen Parker, Columnist, The Washington Post; and Eugene Robinson, Columnist, The Washington Post.

“Meet the Press” originates from the NBC Studios in Washington, D.C. When events dictate, however, the program travels to the scenes of major news events. These locales have included East Berlin, London, the Atlanta & Beijing Olympics, and the sites of presidential primaries, Democratic and Republican national conventions and international summit meetings.

President John F. Kennedy once called “Meet the Press” the “fifty-first state.” Since then, every man who has occupied the Oval Office has appeared on the program during his career. On February 8, 2004, Tim Russert conducted an exclusive, hour-long interview with President George W. Bush from the Oval Office. It was his first Sunday morning interview since becoming president. Every vice president since Alben Barkley in 1952, every secretary of state from John Foster Dulles to Condoleezza Rice, and every secretary of defense from Robert McNamara to Donald Rumsfeld (both times around!) have appeared on the program.

Betsy Fischer is the executive producer, Adam Verdugo is the senior producer, Chris Donovan and Ilana Marcus Drimmer are producers of “Meet the Press.”
