Eugene Robinson to Hannah Jones: How Do We ‘Deprogram’ Trump Supporters?

‘I don’t know how we can stop people. I know we can look to history, though’


ROBINSON: "Nikole, that story you just told is a familiar one, it's absolutely true, the difference between the white citizens councils and the Klan back in the days of Jim crow. You know, Klan was lower income, white citizens councils were the Josh Hawleys and Ted Cruzes of their day. Here’s the situation, though. We have — there are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed. It’s as if they are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and they have to be deprogrammed. Do you have any idea how we start that process, much less complete it?"
