Ep. 248: Tim Alberta on "American Carnage" and How Donald Trump Seduced a Very Eager and Willing Republican Party

Tim Alberta is Politico Magazine’s chief political correspondent. He is also the author of the bestselling new book American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump.

Alberta explains how the American fascist Donald Trump took over a very willing and eager Republican Party, what it was like to interview Donald Trump, and is the president a political genius, an idiot, or something all together different?

Alberta also explains how and why the wicked sinner Donald Trump is viewed with such adoration and love by white right-wing Christians evangelicals-Christian Nationalists and the role of Michael Pence in nurturing and cementing that relationship. Alberta also offers his thoughts on if Donald Trump is a "sincere" racist and white supremacist or if such values and behavior are just a means to an end for him to secure and expand his political power.

On this week's show Chauncey DeVega reflects on America's state of national exhaustion in response to a wave of white supremacist terrorist attacks which killed dozens of people across the country last week -- terrorism inspired and encouraged by Donald Trump, the Republican Party and their propaganda machine through the use of "stochastic terrorism" and "scripted violence".

At the end of this week's show Chauncey shares an animal friend story -- with a happy ending -- about a sea lion which ended up inside of a humpback whale's mouth.
