[Explicit Language] Charlie Pierce is the writer I want to be when I grow up. Charlie’s been covering politics for decades and currently publishes multiple articles a day over at — about the Trump Crisis and more. Today we’ll talk about the 2020 election, Trump’s cannon-fodder strategy, and we’ll talk about how Charlie and I were both hit by cars. Not at the same time, by the way. Meanwhile, if you dig what you hear today, please help support our Patreon at
