Ep. 201 The White Nationalist Hoax
The ordinarily serene Bob Murphy is genuinely outraged in this episode, in which we cover Krugman’s casual claim that Donald Trump is trying to establish an “authoritarian, white nationalist regime.” Needless to say, it does not matter what your opinion of Trump is. This idea is out of some sort of alternate reality that in no way corresponds to the real world, but which in classic Orwellian style is presented as if all reasonable people just know it to be true.
