Trump exposed his own ‘record of extraordinary failure’ by venturing outside his Fox News bubble: columnist

Published

on

In his column for the Washington Post this Wednesday, Greg Sargent contends that the ABC News town hall that featured President Trump this Tuesday was a prime example of how unprepared he is for hard questions when he’s not protected by the Fox News bubble.

“The questions from voters and moderator George Stephanopoulos were pointed, but they were largely premised on basic facts about Trump’s presidency,” Sargent writes. “Over and over, Trump tried to lie away those facts, but (and this is the rare part) he was then pressed with follow-up questions based on more facts.”

According to Sargent, it’s important to remember that Trump thinks he’s entitled to a ” 24/7 propaganda network that doesn’t commit such heresies.” And some conservative pundits, like Fox’s Laura Ingraham apparently agree, calling ABC’s town hall an “ambush.”

“In a way, the Tuesday night town hall really was an ambush. It was an ambush of facts and follow up questions that blew more big holes in the protective shield his propagandists have tried to construct around a record of extraordinary failure,” Sargent writes.

In a column for the New York Times, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman pondered why Donald Trump is once again ramping up his anti-mask rhetoric at a time when his health care advisors are urging the public to keep wearing the protective coverings. He then concluded it is nothing less than a cynical political maneuver by the president that will likely lead to more deaths.

Earlier this week the head of the CDC urged Americans to keep using masks, saying it was their best defense against becoming infected with COVID-19 only to have the president undercut that message on the same day.

Writing on Twitter, Alberta says that Michigan and Arizona are two states that "Trump World knows have slipped, and may be unrecoverable" for the campaign. Additionally, he believes that Wisconsin, another state that Trump won unexpectedly in 2016, "isn't far behind."

Trump calls Howard Zinn’s work ‘propaganda’ — hear the legendary historian in his own words

Published

on

This week President Trump described the work of the legendary historian Howard Zinn, who died in 2010, as “propaganda” meant to “make students ashamed of their own history.” But Zinn believed the opposite, that teaching the unvarnished truth about history was the best way to combat propaganda and unexamined received wisdom. We air excerpts from a 2009 interview with Zinn in which he explained his approach to education. “We should be honest with young people; we should not deceive them. We should be honest about the history of our country,” Zinn said.
