Followers of Donald Trump besiege US Capitol, January 6, 2021 (Kenny Holston/New York Times)
I joined Monique Camarra and Livia Ponzio on the LiberiOltre videocast on Tuesday to analyze the path to the January 2021 Capitol Attack and Donald Trump’s coup attempt.
I navigate from the 1970s to today in an examination of US politics, society, and religion as the country moved from dialogue to division — and as politicians like Trump exploited the toxic mix.
Then we set out the Trump plot to overturn the November 2020 election, culminating in the assault on the Capitol.
There’s a teaser for our next discussion, about the disfunction in Brexit Britain. And asked for my “WTF Moment” this week, I chat about Prime Minister Boris Johnson looking at vegetables in Cornwall in southwest England.
