EP 488: Paul Begala on How to "Fire" Donald Trump
Paul Begala, former strategist to Bill Clinton and CNN political commentator offers a game-plan for how Democrats can beat President Trump in November. He starts be admitting what he didn’t understand about Donald Trump in 2016 and sharing which of the lessons learned in 2016 can be applied in 2020. Paul tells the story of how the Obama White House warned the incoming Trump Administration about the threat of a global pandemic almost 4 years ago, and he outlines the best way for Joe Biden to address Trump’s mishandling of the COVID-19 Crisis. He reveals his plan for expanding voting rights while still protecting election integrity, which Trump voters can be won back in 2020, and the two big issues that may plague Democrats long after Trump is gone. Plus Paul discusses the time he lost an election to a cartoon character and why he says "it’s still the economy, stupid!"
