Author and lawyer Teri Kanefield returns to discuss one of her illumination and informative Twitter threads about oligarchy v. democracy. She explains why it’s important to understand why we cannot asses Trump in the same way we’d assess Obama or even George W. Bush. Trump is not looking to run a healthy democracy, he’s trying to create an oligarchy. Writing him off as an idiot is dangerous because he is accomplishing his goal. But there’s good news! He hasn’t succeeded, and as long as we’re armed with facts and don’t allow ourselves to give in to the doomsday scenario, Trump will lose in November. This conversation is so important because it comes from a measured and informed perspective.
