Dear Commons Community,
Tom Nichols, writer for The Atlantic and author of Our Own Worst Enemy, was interviewed on CNN this morning regarding the threats to American democracy. He explained an earlier tweet:
“The threat to American democracy increased exponentially over the past five years or so when mediocre people of meager talents realized they would never have to work a straight job again as long as they could terrify a nation of right-wing nitwits about the end of “Real America.”
He called out various individuals and pundits including Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.
The five-minute interview is worth a view.
