As Donald Trump’s attempts to steal the election in the courts continue to falter, and as his legal team humiliates themselves at every turn, are we becoming too content in laughing it off and too comfortable in thinking our institutions are now stable? Historian and author Ruth Ben-Ghiat appeared in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 11/9” to help warn of the fascist threat posed by Trump, and she joins Michael now to share her most recent ideas about the danger we are currently in and how leaders like Trump help us become our worst selves. She’s written a new book looking back at fascists from Mussolini to the present day and finds many similarities between these leaders’ use of propaganda, their endorsements of violence, and their projection of virility and masculinity to appeal to male and female supporters alike.
