David Frum on Trump’s Authoritarian Tendencies
Recorded on February 1st, 2017
If you think David Frum is being alarmist or hysterical about authoritarianism, ask yourself this: If this weren’t Trump and we were talking about some other would-be authoritarian who had the goal of seizing control of the U.S. government for their own enrichment, how would their maneuvers look different than what Trump and his advisors have orchestrated over the past few months, weeks and days?
Do not be lulled into apathy or fatigued by the series of shock-and-awe distractions of this administration. This is real.
