Ruth Ben-Ghiat writes: "Authoritarians conjure existential threats from an ever-expanding roster of enemies —immigrants, Jews, and leftists among them" so Trump's visit to a gun shop to admire a customized "Trump 45" Glock was inevitable.
Rick Wilson: "They hate Donald Trump with the fire of a billion suns" but they'll be lining up at Trump's sloppy, crime and avarice-infested trough as soon as they accept the inevitable - Trump will be the GOP nominee for 2024.
On this episode of The Enemies List, Rick is joined by Steven Livitsky and Daniel Ziblatt. Both are authors and professors at Harvard University. Together they discuss why the upcoming 2024 election rivals the importance of the 2020 election in maintaining our democracy, why the Republican Party has become so rigid and unmoving in their position and talking points, and how our democracy has stopped updating.
Trump can't legally buy a gun while the Dems can't stop shooting themselves in the foot with their criticism of Biden and foolishness of playing footsie with a Biden primary challenge. As Rick would say, #GetYouShitTogether. From a potential shutdown to a fire sale on Trump properties, this episode has it all. And who knew our strategists are Swifties?! Join us every Tuesday at 7 PM ET for new episodes of The Strategy Session LIVE.
