Happy Friday, Fishbowlers!
After a week of feuding over each other’s faithfulness, Ben Carson and Donald Trump will both appear on this week’s Face the Nation. Oh, to be a fly on the wall of that green room.

Viewers can expect lots of talk about 2016, the upcoming GOP debate, the developing refugee crisis, Biden’s plans for the next year, and that Iran Deal.
