Then the round table of L. Brooks Patterson, Susy Avery, new co-director of MSU's Michigan Political Leadership Program, and Mark Lee, of The Lee Group, appeared to dissect fallout of the deadly altercation in Charlottesville, Va. where a white supremacist drove into a crowd of demonstrators, killing one and injuring dozens more.

Patterson and Avery -- both Republicans --- had very different views when it came to President Donald Trump and his response. Trump held press conferences and also tweeted in a series of controversial communications that upset many .

You can hear the heated conversation by watching "Michigan Matters" 11:30 Sunday on CBS 62.
