Coleman’s latest episode features Andrew Sullivan, a British born American writer and blogger. Andrew is a political commentator, a former editor at the New Republic, and the author or editor of six books. He also started a very famous political blog called the Daily Dish in 2000 and eventually moved that blog to Time Magazine, The Atlantic, The Daily Beast, and is now running an independent subscription-based format on Substack.
This episode was recorded last Thursday, right after the election, and before it was completely certain that Trump had lost. During this episode, they look at Trump’s single-term presidency in retrospect and evaluate which fears about him proved true and which proved false. They talk about the lack of a Biden landslide, and what that means for the long term prospects of Trumpism — even in the absence of Trump himself. They talk about the problem of elite bubbles misunderstanding the rest of the nation, the relationship between Trump and the far left, and much more.
