Insane Clown President: Matt Taibbi Chronicles Election of “Billionaire Hedonist” Trump

Democracy Now! on Jan 17, 2017

http://democracynow.org – As a new study by Oxfam finds the world’s eight richest men control as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity, the group says it is concerned that wealth inequality will continue to grow following the election of Donald Trump, whose Cabinet members have a combined wealth of nearly $11 billion. We look at the rise of Trump, and those joining his administration, with award-winning Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi. His new book comes out today, titled “Insane Clown President: Dispatches from the 2016 Circus.”

  3. On Contact @21:20 “….that was when I realized it was scary…if you wed a strategic mind to Donald Trump, that’s when you get an extremely destructive force….”

    So where does the Trumpety circus go from here? Kiev? Ankara? Tehran? Tel Aviv? Ryadh? Moscow? Mars? Mexico? Rio? Buenos Aires? the Great Wall….? Vatican City? Salt Lake City? Burning Man? Maybe Nowhere…

    Perhaps we should fake the Google maps and pretend we all live on the dark side of the Moon, where Elvis Hitler is plotting with Big Apple ‘n all the aliens….
