MSM is responsible for normalizing trumpism
DJT is NOT responsible for normalizing tRumpism full stop. I hold mainstream media responsible for this situation. Most news outlets have learned nothing since 2016 in covering him like he isn’t an indicted criminal in numerous court cases and an adjudged rapist and fraudster who is losing his businesses in NY. Call him out. Challenge him in real time. Call him a liar and a con. Call him anti American. Tell the truth.
I love listening and watching Nicole Wallace on Deadline, but didn’t always have the time to watch. I was so grateful I found the podcast. Since I walk daily for 2-3 hours I can now listen to the entire episode daily. Thank you! Keep up the excellent work Nicole
Obviously, this pod has been sucked into an echo chamber of voices that parrot the same information. Nothing is learned here. I urge you to diversify the circle you engage with. Be open to learning. It’ll earn more respect. What are you going to do when 45 is gone? Dance on his grave?
