Physical Description

xxii, 259 pages ; 24 cm


"Why did normal people go along with the worst of Trumpism? Miller, one of the strategists behind the 2012 RNC 'autopsy', reflects on both his own past work for the Republicans and the contortions of his former peers in the conservative establishment. As a gay man, Miller justified becoming a hit man for homophobes, and diagrams the delusional stories GOP operatives tell themselves so that they can sleep at night. The result is a darkly satirical warning that all the narcissistic excuses that got us to this place still thrive within the Republican Party."--Provided by publisher.
