Jennifer Mercieca is a historian of American political discourse at Texas A&M University. Her new book is Demagogue for President: The Rhetorical Genius of Donald Trump.
Mercieca explains how Donald Trump is intentionally using the rhetorical strategies of demagogues and other authoritarians. She also details how Trump’s use of the demagogue’s language playbook allows him to consistently evade responsibility for his actions. And Mercieca reveals how Donald Trump is the P.T. Barnum con artist of American politics.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on another week in Donald Trump’s crime empire where Roger Stone’s sentence was commuted, and the Great Leader declared war on the American people during his two Independence Day speeches. Chauncey also shares a news item about how Trump’s CHUDS are teaching their children white supremacy and other evil values.
