9/29 The Trump Malaise w/ Heather ‘Digby’ Parton & Anthony Atamanuik

September 29, 2017

Today on the program we have Heather ‘Digby’ Parton (@Digby56) as well as Anthony Atamanuik (@TonyAtamanuik) of Comedy Central’s ‘The President’s Show.’

Digby helps us break down the current sense of Trump malaise, how tardy the response to Puerto Rico’s hurricane disaster, and taking the temperature of the long GOP descent most recently observable in the success of Roy Moore in Alabama.

Then Anthony Atamanuik of The President Show joins us to talk about how he maintains playing the Trump character for so long. How The President Show is both smart and dumb funny. The long struggle ahead against the massive voter cult that has been captured by the corporate right.
