Warning: John Dybvig does try to contain himself, but there are a few swear-words used in his piece, so listen to this week's Letter from America at your own risk.

John Dybvig joins Ryan Bradley to take a look at the latest news from America.

The pair take a look at the differences that can be seen with leaders when they are no longer president, and how perception can be altered once they leave the oval office.

They also revisit John McCain's funeral and the line-up of past presidents.

The honour of the presidential line up is generally reserved for Presidents themselves, but alas McCain had made such a contribution that it was fitting.

This also resulted in a drop in Mr Trump’s popularity.

However, no matter what is thrown at him, Mr Trump appears to simply recover and keep going.

John and Ryan discuss how he has managed to continue as the president, even with the stream of obstacles he has faced. 

Listen to the full audio with Rachel Buchanan above.
