Trump’s Shakedown of Georgia’s Election Officials Offers a Glimpse of the Mob Boss in the Oval Office
We begin with the revelations in an hour-long call made public by The Washington Post that Trump had on Saturday, after eighteen previous attempts, with Georgia’s Secretary of State which shows what a stupid thug we have had running this country like a mob boss runs a criminal enterprise. And when you consider that Howard Dean’s political career ended because he let out a yell the press considered too exuberant, while Trump has been caught on tape with his crude misogyny on Access Hollywood, his deliberate downplaying of the Covid crisis in recordings with Bob Woodward, and now the Brad Raffensberger shakedown, you are left to wonder how the bar has been lowered so far. Clearly this delusional sick man in the Oval Office has been given so much leeway in the toleration of his outrages and now his seditious attack on American democracy, in spite of the ridiculous belief among his followers that the press and the Democrats have mistreated him. David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter and best-selling author of The Making of Donald Trump who is the co-founder of DCReport.org, joins us to discuss whether this latest glimpse at who Trump really is will be the wake up call for most Americans to recognize the need to pay more attention to who we elect to high office in this land.
