Scott speaks with Kurt Bardella who is a national columnist and television commentator who left the GOP to become a Democrat and is leading the fight against Donald Trump’s overt program of racial discrimination against Asian-Americans during the coronavirus crisis. His journey from being a Republican insider to becoming a Democrat has been publicly documented in his columns for USA Today where he’s on the board of contributors and on MSNBC where he is a contributor. Kurt had the brilliant idea of discontinuing unfiltered coverage of Trump’s daily coronavirus misinformation press conferences and made it go viral on twitter before Rachel Maddow closed her emotional program last week by calling on the media to stop spreading his lies. Bardella is also the publisher of the Morning Hangover, a country music newsletter.
