Today's episode begins with us going through the many things that have made headlines in the past year regarding the former president and how none of it seems to significantly quell the enthusiasm behind his movement. While we appreciate that some right-wing leaders have finally decided to acknowledge his toxicity, it is simply too little and too late. Furthermore, it seems to have had no impact on his actual voting base.
The second half of the program deals with one elected official's plan to remove American History (rebranded as CRT by conservatives) from classrooms. We discuss his (Tom Horne) delusions and fears with respect to the traditional teaching of American history and give insight into how one might approach an individual who feels this way.
