Congress Says 'Hello Summer', Ignores Democrats Sit-In

This week, Democratic members of the House Of Representatives staged a sit-in in the chamber to try to force House leadership to allow a vote on a pair of gun safety measures.

We're joined by one of Democratic legislators at the center of this story, Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke, to talk about what they hope to achieve and where things go from here.

Meanwhile, a lot of ink has been spilled about GOP nominee Donald Trump's various rancid statements. But this week, we've learned more about a larger problem -- the candidate's inability to mount a professional campaign. Joining us to lend his insight into the weaknesses of Trump's campaign is veteran GOP digital strategist Patrick Ruffini. And is it possible for the Clinton campaign to become overconfident and complacent running against Trump? We'll put the question to the Center for American Progress' Daniella Leger.
