Only a few weeks are left in the run-up to the 2020 presidential elections. As the rivalry between parties and candidates intensifies, so does the disinformation from the Republicans. Bill Stierle and Tom try to wrap their minds around the staggering volume of twisted information out there to see how truth is being purchased. From Donald Trump’s sowing of doubt and skepticism over the voting process to meet his own need for support, his continued underplaying of the impact of COVID-19, Republican efforts to revive the smear campaign against Hillary Clinton, to conspiracy theories around the attempted kidnapping of Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer. There is so much to unpack in this discussion. Brace yourself and join in.
