We’re only as sick as our darkest secrets and our lies takes on a whole new meaning this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show Podcast when joining me at my table to discuss the latest political news is my partner in politics former White House correspondent and Newsweek and Time alum, Matthew Cooper, and in our second half-hour Pulitzer Prize winning author of the extraordinary book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, David Zucchino.
Trump, Fox News hosts, the entire Republican Party have been lying to their supporters about Covid-19 and the safety and efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine. But now the chickens, as they say, have come home to roost. Thanks to reluctant MAGAs, a virus that could be easily eradicated thanks to the vaccine is infecting the unvaccinated with a vengeance and those who took the vaccine are finding themselves at greater risk due to the recalcitrant Republicans and the new Covid variant. It’s nonsensical. Why are Republican leaders and Fox News hosts lying to their own, when they themselves are vaccinated? Tune in to hear Halli go off on that subject and more, including the first January 6 Select Committee hearing, where more Republican secrets and lies are being uncovered.
In our second half-hour Halli introduces you to Pulitzer Prize winning, North Carolina author DAVID ZUCCHINO. A contributing writer for the New York Times, Zucchino has covered wars and civil conflicts in more than three dozen countries and is a four-time Pulitzer Prize finalist for his reporting in Iraq, Lebanon, Africa, and inner-city Philadelphia. And now he has won yet another coveted Pulitzer for his extraordinary non-fiction national bestselling book WILMINGTON’S LIE, THE MURDEROUS COUP OF 1898 AND THE RISE OF WHITE SUPREMACY, a gripping account of one of the most disturbing, though virtually unknown, political events in American history. David writes brilliantly, he is an even better talker. This is an interview you don’t want to miss.
We’re only as sick as our secrets and lies. Covid-19, the January 6 Commission, infrastructure, Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, this week in Tucker Carlson, white supremacy and that’s just where we begin.
