Chris Matthews is the former host of "Hardball" on MSNBC.
His new book is This Country: My Life in Politics and History.
Chris Matthews shares his worries and concerns about American democracy under existential threat from Trumpism and the Jim Crow Republican Party.
He also reflects on life lessons, opportunities, the kindness of mentors and strangers, and his long love affair with journalism and politics.
And Matthews explains what it means to be a real patriot during a time of great crisis in the United States – and why he is optimistic that the American people will ultimately defeat Trumpism and correct the perilous course the country is currently on.
Chauncey DeVega reflects on all these recent powerful coincidences of dates and anniversaries including Memorial Day, D-Day, Tulsa, the Trump coup attempt, and the murder of George Floyd. To that end, Chauncey complicates questions of memory, race, class, forgetting, and the Tulsa massacre.
And Chauncey returns to the movies and shares his reviews of New Order, Cruella, A Quiet Place 2, Dream Horse, and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
