Really valuable insights
Thanks for this really great podcast. Gives me hope for the US. Keep up the good work - I’ll keep listening!
I love the Lincoln Project!!
Thanks again for another great podcast with Anne Appelbaum! I’m a Canadian citizen living in Sweden, and a ferocious reader of American history! I think that most of the civilised word is watching in absolute horror to what and is happening in the United States right now! I listen to and watch everything that the Lincoln Project does, especially Mr Schmidt! We all hope that what you are doing will help remove this cancer and his enablers from the Oval Office, and America can start the process of rebuilding again! Thanks for what you are doing!
What trumpists and others miss about the Lincoln Project’s activities is that they are based on the founders’ feelings: sadness, loss, disgust, disbelief, and patriotism among other gut-churning reactions to this administration. We’re all up late at night watching the disaster of this democracy turning into a dictatorship. The Lincoln Project is one way to be a part of the remedy.
