P&P Live!: Paul Begala – You’re Fired: The Perfect Guide to Beating Donald Trump – In Conversation with Donna Brazile
In You’re Fired, Paul Begala tells us how Trump uses division to distract from the actual reality of his record. Distraction, he argues, is Trump’s superpower. And this book is Kryptonite. In it, the man who helped elect Bill Clinton and reelect Barack Obama, details the special weapons and tactics needed in the unconventional war against this most unconventional politician and where the votes to defeat Trump will come from. Full of memorable advice and Begala’s trademark wit, You’re Fired focuses on the lessons we can learn from the party’s successes and failures–and the crucial tools Democrats need to beat Trump.
