With the election less than two weeks away, Donald Trump and his cronies are accelerating their dangerous behavior in a desperate attempt to hold on to the White House. In Sudan, Trump has taken advantage of a collapsed economy to force Sudan into agreements that risk greater de-stabilization. Then, just before recording this podcast, Trump’s lackey DNI accused Iran of election interference while offering zero substantiation and spinning a yarn that seems very difficult to believe. The impact these things can have stretches far beyond this election. What’s worse, none of this is likely to have a significant impact on the voting.
I also look at Joe Biden’s decision to vet a number of disaffected Republicans for positions in his cabinet.
