Trumpocalypse: Consent Factory Essays, Vol. I (2016-2017)
CJ Hopkins, author
In this first collection of his Consent Factory essays, C. J. Hopkins irreverently covers the improbable rise of Donald Trump, the political dynamics that led to his presidency, and the media-generated mass hysteria that swept America during his first term in office. "Brave, original, enlightening, and hilarious" (Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone), the essays in this volume capture the insanity of 2016 and 2017. Trump's candidacy, the election, the Resistance, "Putin-Nazis," neo-McCarthyism, fake news, bots, Charlottesville ... the whole mad circus unleashed by America's "insane clown president."
