We have never seen an election like this.
In the middle of the Pandemic U.S. President Trump attacks opponents and claims The U.S. is rounding a corner. He is lashing out at the media and mocking people who wear masks. This, as American is close to 100 thousand new cases of Corona Virus a day!
The political conversation is one of the great democracies couldn't be worse. It's divisive. Acidic. And on both sides, not just Trumps twitter account.
One of the platforms fighting back against Trump is something called The Lincoln Project which has raised millions and filled social media with anti Trump ads. And most of them are former Republicans in a crisis of conscience believing Trump has hijacked their party and their values. Back Story host and creator Dana Lewis talks to one of the founders, Ron Steslow.
