There are two guests on this week’s episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.
Jen Senko is the director of the 2015 documentary The Brainwashing of My Dad.
She shares her thoughts on the new CBS News/YouGov poll that shows how Donald Trump’s followers trust him more than their friends, family members, and religious leaders. In essence, and once again, Donald Trump is the leader of a fascist political cult.
Jen Senko also reflects on the impact of her very prescient documentary given Trump’s criminal trials and the plot against democracy, the escalating danger(s) of Trump’s movement, and why so many in the American mainstream news media continue to be in willful denial about the reality of the crisis.
Rich Logis is a former high ranking Trump MAGA World operative and propagandist. He reflects on how he was radicalized by the Trump MAGA fascist movement, how it functions as an alternate reality that provides emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, familial, and other types of meaning and belonging for its members, and how he escaped it.
In this wide-ranging conversation, Rich Logis also shares how being a member of the MAGA movement and worshipping the Great Leader Donald Trump made him feel like he was a soldier in a revolutionary struggle to defeat the Democrats, “the liberals” and other enemies of “the movement”.
Chauncey DeVega honors the lives, legacy, and impact of two great professional wrestlers who passed away last week.
Terry Funk, who was 79 years old, left this realm of existence on Wednesday.
Windham Lawrence Rotunda (“Bray Wyatt”) transitioned on Thursday. He was only 36 years old.
This week’s episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show is dedicated to them.
Chauncey DeVega also shares his thoughts about the Republican Party’s first 2024 presidential primary debate, Trump’s fake interview with Tucker Carlson, and the ex-president and traitor’s surrender and arrest in Georgia.
And Chauncey reacts to the white supremacist terrorist attack in Florida in real time as he is recording the introduction to this episode of the podcast.
