A Brief History of Anti-Populism w/ Thomas Frank - MR Live - 9/15/20

Donald Trump’s private thoughts on Covid from April 13 are a bit of a contrast from his public statment on April 17.

Then Sam is joined by historian Thomas Frank to discuss his new book, “The People, No: A Brief History of Anti-Populism.” What is the American history of populism? Is it an attitude, a policy set, a campaign style?

And on the fun half:

Trump, Roger Stone, and Mark Levin really flexing election-stealing muscles. Steve Doocy valiantly defends press freedom. Trump thinks the forest fires may start cooling. Joe Biden calls Trump a climate arsonist, and Jared Kushner has purged the admin of “confident idiots.”
