American politics is in crisis. Together, the founders of The Lincoln Project have spent over 200 years electing Republicans. But now, they’ve sparked a nationwide movement with a singular mission: To defeat Donald Trump and Trumpism. Ron Steslow hosts fellow political experts Reed Galen, Jennifer Horn, George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Mike Madrid, Rick Wilson, and John Weaver, and more as they defy their party and reveal how Trump will be defeated, discuss what’s at stake in the 2020 election, ...

If you don’t understand the title of this episode, which suggests some Freaky Friday voodoo between President Biden and ex-President Donald Trump, congratulations, you have logic. Unfortunately, there are many people who don’t, like the QAnon believers who are still clinging to their conspiracy theories the same way that Donald Trump attempted to c…
 
Mike Madrid (@madrid_mike), Susan Del Percio (@DelPercioS), and Lucy Caldwell (@lucymcaldwell) join host Ron Steslow (@RonSteslow) to discuss the inauguration, Joe Biden’s inaugural address, Amanda Gorman’s poem, “The Hill We Climb,” and some of the actions the Biden took in their first few hours in office.…
 
It is said that before Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009, a group of Republicans got together and vowed to oppose everything that he would do, or rather, try to do. Did the Trump loyalists on the hill and Mitch McConnell’s Republicans huddle together last night and make a similar vow, this time for President-Elect Joe Biden? It’s a possibility, s…

Subscribe to ‘The Last Laugh’ now to hear our full conversation, including Sarah’s thoughts on what should happen to Trump and his family after they leave the Whi…
 
Mike Madrid (@madrid_mike) and Susan Del Percio (@DelPercioS) join Host Ron Steslow (@RonSteslow) to discuss the accusation that a member of congress provided reconnaissance tours to rioters before the attack, Trump’s ban from social media platforms, the PGA’s decision to drop Trump’s course from the calendar, and Donald Trump’s second impeachment.…
 
How will we bring the Trump supporters who live in an alternate reality back to the real world? A recent Pew poll asked who respondents thought was to blame for the Capitol riot—and an “astounding” number said President Donald Trump bears no responsibility, Rick Wilson told his co-host Molly Jong-Fast on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. Mean…
 
Donald Trump is not the only “bad” president this country has had in office, but from one historian's perspective, he’s certainly one of the worst. “This country has had a few [bad presidents]. There are the ones who are simply bad at the job and incompetent, and a lot of bad things happen on their watch. There are those who are corrupt and engaged…
 
After the violent mob attacked the U.S. Capitol at the direction of the president last week, we decided to resurface a conversation from August between host Ron Steslow and Anne Applebaum about her book, Twilight of Democracy, and the warning signs of authoritarianism we were witnessing.由The Lincoln Project
 
One of the most frightening aspects of the assault on the U.S. Capitol was how, well, normal some of the participants seemed—and how openly they spoke of their willingness to murder other Americans if President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory was certified. The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer was outside the Capitol on Jan. 6 and described his conver…
 
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) just can’t understand why everyone wants him to resign. He put out a brave tweet calling for the “violence” to end after a mob he helped incite laid siege to the Capitol, and his “woke” publisher still gave in to “cancel culture” and axed his beloved book. Now people won’t stop going on about his objecting to the certificati…
 
Mike Madrid (@madrid_mike), Lucy Caldwell (@lucymcaldwell), and Tharon Johnson (@TharonJohnson) join host Ron Steslow (@RonSteslow) to discuss the violent siege of the U.S. Capitol by Trump loyalists, Donald Trump’s unhinged phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff’s wins in the Georgia …
 
Donald Trump is in deep shit. So deep, that he finally admitted to leaving the White House at the end of the month. And his supporters? Well, some would say Wedesnday’s riot in D.C., when his supporters-turned-domestic-terrorists defaced the Capitol, inspired an “oh-fuck” moment. As for what is going through the president’s head right now, co-hosts…
 
After inciting a mob of his drooling followers to sack the Capitol, President Donald Trump proved he’s too dangerous to hold office, even if it’s just for another two weeks. But don’t count on his cabinet to do the right thing, not even after the first attack on the Capitol since 1814. “These people are gutless, spineless, chicken-shit, horrifying,…
 
Things were already sub-ideal for the president and his Republican party in the Peach State. The GOP’s incumbent senators, who in any normal year would be locks for re-election, both have a habit of shady stock trades. The early vote has been huge, and breaking Democrats’ way. Then came the instantly-infamous call between Trump and Georgia Secretar…
 
Trump did a lot to roll back women’s healthcare—from enacting a global gag rule, which prevents non-American health organizations from receiving monetary aid from the U.S., to stacking the courts with anti-choice judges all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. Add the threat of losing Roe to the mix and Biden will have his work cut ou…
 
Host Ron Steslow sits down with Jennifer Horn, Mike Madrid, and Susan Del Percio to discuss the Texas congressman who is suing Mike Pence to steal an election, the U.S. Senator from Missouri who announced he will challenge electoral college votes, the importance of the Georgia Runoffs, and New Year’s resolutions for the United States.…
 
Trump getting COVID. Antifa plotting to take down the White House. The truth about Russia disinfo. Bill Clinton impressions. The Lincoln Project scoops. The very first year of The New Abnormal by The Daily Beast has been a wild, trippy ride. It featured scientists, politicians, whistleblowers and the Daily Beast’s best and brightest reporters. In t…
 
Twenty-four-year-old Madelyn Corwin’s social media feeds feature a few selfies, videos of her insulin pump, and almost always a link to a GoFundMe page. The most current fundraiser is to raise money for a woman named Nicole who lost her diabetic son in 2018 because they couldn’t afford insulin. In other words, Corwin’s pages are not just young peop…
 
Rudy Giuliani tried really hard this year soil himself: the hair-in-the-can, the Russian agent pal, the presser by the sex shop, the buckets of conspiracy drool. But it wasn’t until he got caught red handed with Borat’s daughter that his reputation was smeared fully, finally, and forever. The hand-down-Rudy’s-pants incident was one of a whole bunch…
 
Host Ron Steslow (@RonSteslow) sits down with Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom), a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School, to discuss Russia’s recent hacks of U.S. Federal Agencies, Trump’s relationship with Putin, what the Biden administration will need to do to clean up the damage and secure systems, and the potenti…
 
“I begged her to just come out and say that I was her friend, I was loyal. Nope, nothing,” says Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, author of Melania and Me. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff considered Melania Trump a friend—more than a friend, really. Wolkoff even followed Melania to Washington, helping produce the 2017 inauguration and advise the incoming First …
 
Political pundit and author Zerlina Maxwell was booed and hissed at during a Politicon a few years ago (which is “a Comic Con for political nerds”) because she said that if Bernie Sanders ran in 2020, which he did, he’d have to improve his messaging toward communities of color. Fast forward to this year and Maxwell has a book out on the subject and…
 
Host Ron Steslow sits down with Jennifer Horn, Susan Del Percio, and Mike Madrid to discuss the resignation of Attorney General Bill Barr, the retiring Michigan congressman—Paul Mitchell—who left the Republican Party, and Mitch McConnell begging Republican Senators not to challenge the election results.…
 
They’re the two most important women in Donald Trump’s life. And they absolutely loathe one another. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, the former Melania Trump confidant and author of Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady, spills the tea on the latest episode of The New Abnormal, starting with the very first days of the ad…
 
Host Ron Steslow sits down with Malcolm Nance, a counter-terrorism expert, New York Times bestselling author, and Retired Senior Chief Petty Officer in the US Navy to discuss the recent staffing changes at the Department of Defense, how the newly installed Trump loyalists could impact defense strategy, and how the Biden administration must respond …
 
It’s getting near closing time for the Trumps at the White House—Monday’s electoral college vote made that official. Which means folks like Ivanka Trump have to GTFO and find themselves new careers. It might be a bit tricky, Daily Beast contributor and Hysteria host Erin Gloria Ryan explains. Just about everybody hates Ivanka these days—well, excep…
 
COVID whistleblower Rebekah Jones always thought that having a gun pointed in her face would be terrifying. That’s what the movies and TV shows have us all believe anyway. But she says when the Florida state police raided her home and held a gun inches from her face after she told them her two children were present, she felt “nothing.” She even let…
 
Host Ron Steslow sits down with George Conway and Jennifer Horn to discuss the top news of the week: The U.S. Supreme Court declining a request to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania, the Texas Attorney General trying to throw out 10 million votes in four other states, and the New York Times reporting that the Trump administration declined…
 
Ivanka and Jared have big plans...to move to Florida, and maybe start the tropical version of the Met Ball. “If you had $30 million to spend on 1.6 acres of empty space, where would you buy it?” Molly asks Rick. “Miami,” of course, to be somewhat near Trump’s favorite kid and son-in-law and witness when Ivanka primaries against Marco Rubio, he answ…
 
You’d think they’d have learned by now, just a few weeks from the end of the Trump presidency. But people are still falling for the same head fakes and tricks. Take, Molly Jong-Fast says, Trump’s recent trip down to Georgia. “It was one of those many Trump's speeches where you saw on Twitter for the first 15 minutes people were like, ‘sometimes Tru…
 
Donald Trump has a long list of titles he’s accused of being: a liar, scammer, and sore loser to name a few. But racist is a title he earned long before becoming a soon-to-be one-term MAGA president. Former Trump Organization employee Barbara Res says saw it at play multiple times years ago while working as a vice president for the construction arm…
 
Host Ron Steslow talks to Mike Madrid, Susan Del Percio, and Tharon Johnson about the top stories of the week: Trump’s continued attempts to steal the presidential election, the RNC’s planned “victory” rally in Georgia, the Trump campaign’s post-election grift, and the shady stock trading of Georgia Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.…
 
The gods of comedy have heard your prayers—and just might make them come true. “Veep,” the greatest political comedy of all time, could return, somehow, some way, in some form, if only for a short while. “We've certainly discussed it,” star Julia-Louis Dreyfus tells Molly Jong-Fast on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. “Everybody's sort of gon…
 
With several critical dates approaching, host Ron Steslow briefly walks listeners through the process for how a candidate becomes the President of the United States. He explains the procedure for counting and certifying votes on the local and state levels, voting in the electoral college, and certifying the electoral votes in congress.…
 
Trump is headed to Georgia this week, where there’s about to be a pair of special elections to decide the balance of the senate. But don’t expect the president to really talk up his Republican, MAGA AF buds, George Conway says. “It's better for him and better for his ego if they lose.” Trump has a problem, George explains to Molly-Jong Fast and Ric…

Alec Baldwin has given serious thought about running for office. He already knows what it’s like for people to hate his guts (Like for things like playing the president on Saturday Night Live—“They say things like, ‘I don't know who we want to get rid of first Alec Baldwin or Trump.’”) But seriously, he has considered diving head-first into the pol…
 
Host Ron Steslow sits down with fellow Lincoln Project co-founders George Conway and Jennifer Horn, and Lincoln Project senior advisor John Sipher to discuss the top news stories of the week: Trump’s pardoning of Michael Flynn, the Trump legal team’s failures to win court cases, the announcement of Biden’s top national security team, and the latest…
 
The end of the Trump administration is like the end of a season finale of the most batshit Netflix show. Everyone has questions of how it will finally end, including one big one: Will Trump pardon himself before leaving office? Some theories predict VP Mike Pence could assume the presidency for just enough time to pardon Trump. But, Rick Wilson doe…
 
If you thought Ivanka Trump’s childhood best friend, Lysandra Ohrstrom, had enough to say about the First Daughter in her scathing Vanity Fair article, you’d be mistaken. Oh no, Lysandra isn’t finished yet. She came on the latest episode of The New Abnormal to talk about the president’s favorite kid and the offensive and crude things Ivanka and her…
 
Team Biden has made his incoming style of presidency very clear: Keep the peace. Or in his aides’ words, “move the country forward.” Unfortunately, moving forward doesn’t include prosecuting Trump and his band of thieves, er, White House staffers and campaign confidants. In this bonus episode of The New Abnormal, which happened LIVE on Zoom, The Da…
 
Host and co-founder Ron Steslow sits down with fellow Lincoln Project co-founder Mike Madrid and Lincoln Project senior advisor Susan Del Percio to discuss Donald Trump’s attempted coup, Lindsey Graham’s attempts to interfere in another state’s election process, the rising number of covid-19 deaths, and the ousting of the country’s top election sec…
 
“It's so funny,” Molly Jong-Fast tells Sen. Amy Klobuchar. “There's been so much sexist talk about women [in politics] being too emotional and being too sensitive. And then we have an entire party held hostage by the president's moods.” Klobuchar laughs in response: “Exactly. I think it was John Bolton that said that we just don't have time to live…
 
Molly Jong-Fast explains to Rick Wilson why she got into a brouhaha with the Congresswoman from the First District of QAnon in the latest episode of The New Abnormal, which features presidential transition veteran Neera Tanden of The Center For American Progress and Carl Zimmer of The New York Times, who gets us up to speed on the latest vaccine br…
 
President Donald Trump may be following Vladimir Putin’s Autocratic playbook closer than we all realize—and the Russian interference was just the tip of the iceberg.
