This week, we break down chapter 14 of “Triggered” wherein Donny proves he’s really just a racist conspiracy theorist at heart.
ICYMI you can listen to this whole review from the beginning starting with episode 1 of this review.
This week you’ll hear Kevin reading from a list of verifiable hate crimes committed by individuals directly inspired by Trump. I know I missed a few during the episode that were on my list, and of course my list is nowhere near the full list of hate crimes inspired by Trump, but if you’d like to fact check me, or have a handy list to use on your crazy MAGA Uncle, I’ve put the list in the show-notes this week for you.
