Ordinary Times’ Andrew Donaldson on Consumer Choice Radio
Our own Andrew Donaldson was interviewed on Consumer Choice Radio this week with Yaël Ossowski and David Clement, discussing the storming of the Capitol and the ensuing impeachment among other current topics. The conversation went in depth on two of Andrew’s recent articles here at OT:
The Destructive High Water Mark of MAGA: It was all under control, you see, so carefully planned. The Show of Shows on this Day of Days for the Make America Great Again faithful.
Impeachment, President Trump, and Evidence That Demands a Verdict: The president is defiant, Congress is impeaching, and the final days of the Trump Presidency are set for a climactic ending. So now what?
An Ode to Pants, Recently Departed: Searching for solace on the untimely demise of a good pair of pants, and seeking refuge in the famous laments of literature.
