This quote is how I can tell this story is a conspiracy theory gone far afield or that it’s click…

Thank you, this is very shrewd. There is no question that our government became less transparent under Trump. And that makes everyone far more susceptible to cynicism and conspiracy. It’s a terrible problem. We saw this under Bush with 9–11 as well. We’ll probably never know all the details about how much the administration knew and why they made their choices: but those gaps in our knowledge are a challenge. Filling them with crap is a choice. It’s very tempting to just click over into a master narrative instead of waiting on details and evidence.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
