The Making of a Predator
Ralph welcomes independent journalist, Monique El-Faizy, to talk about her book “All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator,” which chronicles 43 more women who have come forward with stories of the President’s sexual misconduct. Plus, Ralph, Steve, and David talk Trump’s pardons, Michael Bloomberg, electoral politics, and still have time to knock out some listener questions.

Ms. El-Faizy has written for a variety of publications, such as The New York Times, the Guardian, the Washington Post, GQ, The Financial Times, Marie Claire and Glamour. She is the author of God and Country: How Evangelicals Have Become America’s New Mainstream. And along with co-author Barry Levine she has written All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator.
“When Trump was thirteen his father sent him off to an all-male military academy. His classmates there said because there were no girls there, the only way they could learn about girls and women and relationships with the opposite sex was through Playboy magazine, that was kind of their bible and their guidebook… [Trump] seems to never have changed his view of women from that Playboy view that he developed at thirteen.”

“[With Medicare-for-all] the US corporations will be more competitive with Western Europe, Japan and Canada, because none of these corporations have to pay for health insurance, and that’s a big deal. When General Motors doesn’t have to pay for health insurance, which costs them more than what they’re paying for steel and manufacturing their cars, they’re going to be more competitive.”
