The Face of Trump’s GOP on Display at the Texas Republican Convention
We begin with Saturday’s Texas Republican convention which provided a full-on display of the face of Trump’s GOP and where it would take the country with resolutions passed to reject the 2020 election results, do away with all gun control and demonize gays and transgender Americans.

He is the co-host of the podcast “This is Democracy” and the author and editor of a number of books including The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office and the forthcoming, Civil War by Other Means: America’s Long and Unfinished Fight for Democracy.
