If you want to understand Trump’s rise to power, you should consider the tactics used by Senator Joe McCarthy. On the next Fresh Air, Terry talks with Larry Tye about how Trump owes a lot to McCarthy’s playbook. Tye’s new book about McCarthy is called Demagogue, which he describes as a book about America’s love affair with bullies. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
