Ep. 185: If Donald Trump is Removed From Office There Will be Violence
3 days ago
David Cay Johnston is the guest on this week's edition of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter who has followed Donald Trump's life and career for 30 years. Johnston shared those insights in the New York Times bestselling book The Making of Donald Trump. Johnston's new book is It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration is Doing to America. During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, David and Chauncey discuss how Trump's family and upbringing created a man who is so comfortable with lying and being involved in illegal and other morally questionable activities, the failures in Hillary Clinton's and the Democratic Party's strategy and messaging, and how Robert Mueller will show that Donald Trump is a traitor who conspired with Russia to steal the White House, has likely committed financial crimes and obstructed justice. David Cay Johnston also offers a chilling warning--there will be violence from Trump's supporters if their Great Leader is impeached or otherwise removed from office. In this week's episode Chauncey DeVega offers his thoughts on the culture of cruelty and the Republican Party's and Donald Trump's war on the "useless eaters" through a cruel effort take away food stamps from children, healthcare from the sick, and aid for the disabled. Chauncey also has fun discussing the self-hating Afrocentric conman Fox News favorite who is giving out African-American "slavery reparations" coupons for Starbucks. And at the end of this week's podcast Chauncey shares some hate mail and deconstructs a very dangerous example of some new age white supremacist propaganda.

My favorite podcast, bar none
There's something about Chauncey DeVega's friendly delivery regarding gut wrenching topics like our current political situation, rise of fascism, and the perennial racism in this country that actually helps me endure it. I also enjoy the variety of topics he covers, including comic book culture that I don't really follow but enjoy getting a peek into. I've gone back and listened to all the past podcasts that I could and get quite impatient waiting for new ones; just got to have it. Thanks Chauncey.

Real, humane, and thought provoking
Chauncey's show is like sitting on the porch with a good friend and having a great stimulating conversation about life. I appreciate his deeply felt responses to the car crash that is our current political epoch. And he engages with his guest unlike other hosts who just anticipate when they can interrupt to show off. Keep the good work!
