Inside the GOP’s Plot to White Wash January 6th + A Conversation with Joe Trippi
The Manhattan DA’s case against the Trump Organization and Donald Trump has put intense pressure on the former President as he finds himself increasingly cornered. The prospect of an indictment has forced him back out on the campaign trail as he seeks to shield himself from prosecution by spinning the case as yet another political witch hunt. At the same time, the GOP must reckon with the fact that for good or ill, Trump is still the center of the Republican universe and thus they need to change the narrative. In the past several months, the right has engaged in a propaganda war to white wash the history of the Trump presidency and what happened on January 6th. The result has been a steady drip of stunning and shameless lies. Finally, political strategist and Democratic stalwart Joe Trippi joins Mea Culpa to discuss the fall out caused by the GOP’s authoritarian crusade.

Michael I love your show! I too have had my own personal experience with the orange man. I worked in the modeling industry in the 90s and dated someone who’s father was friends with him. The reason I’m writing is I’ve been listening to your podcast from the very beginning and I have a question for you. I hear you talking about how in your opinion the Democratic Party hasn’t been able to “do much”. I’m wondering if you’ve considered working with some of the key players in the Party as a consultant to help them combat the Trumplican thinking? I think you would be a huge asset!!! Thank you for your perspective and continued education from the inside!
Best F***ing Podcast!
Five stars all the way! I hope your next book is as good as your last. Please tell us you’ll be narrating the audiobook. Either way I can’t wait. Keep up the excellent work. I can’t believe I hated you.
This is mandatory listening from one who was on the inside of the Trump organization. Michael Cohen has done an excellent job of rising above the past and in reinventing himself. He has my respect and admiration.
