Obama, Trump and the Hollow Resistance w/ Author Paul Street

COVID-19 Rocks the White House! In our latest episode, we get into the news of the past week with journalist and author Paul Street (@Streetwriter17). And then we deep dive into how the vacuous neo-liberal politics of Barack Obama led to the rise of Donald J. Trump.

We discuss all of this with Paul’s new book, “Hollow Resistance: Obama, Trump, and the Politics of Appeasement.”

Paul Street is an independent progressive policy researcher, award-winning journalist, historian, author and speaker based in Iowa City, Iowa, and Chicago, Illinois. He is the author of seven books to date, including Hollow Resistance. He publishes regularly in CounterPunch and TruthDig.
